    We all make mistakes, that’s a fact. But the important thing about this is learning from them.

    How do we do it? Well, that’s another story. As for language learning, one way to go about it is to proofread your texts (e-mails, letters, notes, and so on)and correct them before you send them or turn them in.

    Hope it helps. That’s it for me now.

um sorry but um an English trainer for Egyptian students and I teach them from interchange the 4th edition and the book says that you can use the word “That” as a relative pronoun for people so do you think it’s a mistake? or do you mean that commonly we use who for people and that for things?

Profile photo of Dr.Ragy Dr.Ragy

    Hello Ragy, i made the mistake for this question and the correction is this:

    Sometimes “that” can be used to talk about people, but if you aren’t an advanced English speaker, you should use “who”.

Thanks! James, for the wonderful lesson…:) In my opinion, I think that you are an amazing and funny instructor to learn from. Therefore, I’m trying to learn a little more to improve my writing and vocabulary skills. Right now, I’m working very hard towards my GED. I have a request for you, is there anyway that you can do a lesson on commas—that would be great! Anyway, thanks again for your time.

Hi James, hi all. This is my third day here, first video by this teacher, and first comment)
Why I’m telling this? Because I feel a little nervous with what I’m writing)))
I try to be correct, but can’t promise. Anyway, I hope a lot you all will understand me)
My question is about “regardless”. I understood the meaning of this word, but. It seems to have a negative shade, doesn’t it?
How to explain…For example, in video we saw such an example “Regardless of what you say, I’m not changing my mind”. Does it mean smth like ” Ok, thank you for your point of view, but I will do what I find right”, or “Hey, man, I did not ask you, I did not need your advice, who are you :))))
And also I want to ask about “despite of”. Are this words synonyms? What about difference in their meanings?
P.S.May the Force be with you ))))
P.P.S. thanks for this lessons, for this website, and for everything you do to help students like me :)))

Profile photo of Kate Kate

    Welcome to EngVid Kate. To begin with, let me tell you something about your English. As far as I can tell, your writing skills are pretty good.

    As to your questions concerning “Regardless” and “despite”. My advice to you would be to check them out in an English grammar (Modern English by Marcela Frank, for instance).

    Hope it helps. See you around!

    Profile photo of Regino Regino

    How about using “in spite of/ despite?
    “In spite of your good advice, I won’t change my
    mind.”
    ” Despite your good advice, I won’t change my mind.”
    Does it sound better? Maybe the Moderator could
    help here.
    One thing is for sure: it’s not at all rude, okay?
    What do you think, Regino?

An item incorrect about THAT VS WHO…Mmmmhh…I remember a play theatre piece “One man, two guvnors” whereon an actor said: – Who´s that?- pointing Queen´s picture out… but it was a picture no the Queen… Greetings Mr. E. Ohh, James too.

    i do not sure whether i would get response of my question, but regardless i’ll ask. James… about anyway vs. anyways… we are not allowed to use this word, okay, i get it. And as far as i understand, if i want to use these words, i need to improve my accent, right? do i get it right?

Profile photo of Vadim E. Vadim E.

Hello James!

Thank you for the lesson! That’s quite interesting, as usual.

Relating to the word “irregardless”, I think it isn’t correct because both the prefix ir- and the suffix -less have a negative meaning. If we used both of them in the same word, it would be a kind of double negative. Am I right?

I am looking forward to seeing your next video! Bye for now!

Thanks a lots dear James..to make me understand your lesson so well. It’s more useful for me! i got 8 from 10. so i must review my lesson again before i have to make a second test <3

Profile photo of polly poohly polly poohly

The doubt for me was “that” because this pronoun can be use with a person or people, at the beginning it thought that the teacher was against this idea but now I have understood it, we can us “that” with people. It had a doubt with the word “cook”, the person who cooks, and I thought it was “cooker” but this last word doesn’t exist though it seems like more usual than “cook”… Thanks a lot teacher James. Regards.

Thanks, James. Nice lesson.
I think “anyways” is not good English. It’s not a
slang. It’s…..nothing. You are totally right.
Nobody should say this words.
Thanks again.
