Thank you a lot .

    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?

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”.

Fernando Moreira

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.

Miss Coya

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 :)))

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!

    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?

Júlio César L Sousa

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.

    Regino

i am chatting with Canadians or Americans on internet… Most of them are typing like this ” couldf, wouldf, shouldf… i shouldf eaten more, i wouldf told you, etc.

sebernet

    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?

    sebernet

8 points. anyway, thanks for your information!

maxboooo

Hello everyone I come from China

Bobgo

Hi James! Thanks for this lesson!

I’ve learned this topic from this video, but I can’t help me with “anyways” now :)

Fabio Cicerre

Hello from Russia, I want to say some words: all is pretty good)!

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!

Eduardo França

I am so glad to learn english here, really usefull for me as a beginner

Great lesson professeur! Might I use “irregardless” or “anyways” in creative writing? Is it sounds good for native readers?

David_SilvA

Thank you, was a great lesson. My first one

Marcia1964

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

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.

angardiobel

thanks for this lesson teacher Specially when you you explained the different between who and that because I didn´t undertand those words. I apreciate you efforts teaching us. 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.
