Cool..Thanks for your lesson!

You make my day by making your lesson so funny! I would make you out, but I can’t make it right now, sorry :).

Thank you James for the lesson, you are great!

Monday, April 30th 2012

I’d like to know if there’s a mistake in the first question, “it’s make out his house or make out to his house”?

Monday, April 30th 2012

it is an excellent exercise.

Tuesday, May 1st 2012

it’s cool, congatulations for the class.

Tuesday, May 1st 2012

    ola, estou iniciando e estou com dificuldades, voce pode ajudar-me, obrigado

Mr. E could barely make out his house because of the heavy rain. Which meaning of make is this?
A. to be a major reason for someone’s success
b. to bring happiness or pain
C. to be able to come to an event or appointment
D. to arrive at a certain time
E. to be looking for something / looking for sex
F to kiss for a long time
G. to see or hear with great difficulty
K. to ask or talk about how well you performed at some activity.

Hello james, I think the answer should be: “D. to arrive at a certain time”
“G. to see or hear with great difficulty ” is not appropriate.
Can you gimme more explainations ?. thanks james. I love the way you teach, very awesome :D.

Tuesday, May 1st 2012

    “Mr. E could barely make out his house because of the heavy rain.” is ‘G’.
    “Mr. E could barely make it to his house because of the heavy rain.” is ‘D’.

    Wednesday, May 2nd 2012

    The rain, I think, was so heavy – downpour, shower – that Mr. E could hardly see his house, – could barely make out his house.

    Wednesday, May 2nd 2012

Tom Turtle is always on the make for tips on English grammar. Which meaning of make is this? why is it not A?

Tuesday, May 1st 2012

    I chose A, too. I don’t understand the answer.

    Thursday, May 3rd 2012

      “I would love to make out with Jon”, said Mr. E. Which meaning of make is this?

      The first answer (A) is incorrect. But so is the answer given as correct.

      In this context, Mr E is not looking for something (on the make) but wanting to kiss ‘make out with’ (to kiss for a long time).

      So I disagree with the result on this question. But the first answer is not the right one.

      Wednesday, June 10th 2015

you make my day with those expression

Tuesday, May 1st 2012

the correct answer for the question number 2 is “to kiss for a long time”

Tuesday, May 1st 2012

    I think so too.

    Friday, July 11th 2014

I’m hang over, that’s the reason I failed the quiz. thanks anyway James. that makes me so sad.

Tuesday, May 1st 2012

Tuesday, May 1st 2012

Fantastic teacher!!! I thought Video lessons are boring and useless, but James you make the Diffetence.

Wednesday, May 2nd 2012

Hi, thank you for wonderful lession, but i have a doubt, for the second question. In this question, “make out” is a phrasal verb and Mr. E would love to kiss Jon long time, but you gave the answer as “looking for somehting/looking for sex,” but actually you said this is the meaning of noun “make.” Sorry for the mistakes in my sentence construction. Please explain me.

Wednesday, May 2nd 2012

‘make’ means ‘make to exist’, so
‘make to exist to exist’, so
‘make to exist to exist to exist’ … :-)

Wednesday, May 2nd 2012

i really love you James !! an of cours your way of teaching !! :)

Mr.E could barely make out his house bacause of the heavy rain.
Because of the heavy rain he can see his house with great diffuculty.

Saturday, May 5th 2012

he would love to make out with Jane, it means that he is looking forward for sex,he wants to make sex with Jane.
But at what situation it is using for kissing for a long time ???it is smilar((

i am so happy because i found this great lesson.

Sunday, May 13th 2012

Could you explain how I use (-ness) like: Awareness, likeness,worthiness, etc… what’s the meaning of “-ness)?

Sunday, May 13th 2012

    When you add -ness to an adjective, it turns it into a noun that means “the state/quality of being [adjective]“. So, for example, awareness (aware + ness) means “the state of being aware”: “Because I was asleep, I had no awareness of what was going on.”

    Friday, May 18th 2012

      Thank you very much teacher

handsome teacher!

Sunday, September 9th 2012

If a person can understand something it becomes useful for them and they can use it. This is information I got from one of your lessons and is a revelation to me. I am 60 years old and back when I went to school in Arizona the teachers did not take the time to explain things. I have a lot of english grammer “holes” because I did not understand certain things. You have given me hope to fill in some of the holes in my grammer. I will view everyone on your lessons

Thank-you very much for your labor of love. You are a powerful and interesting teacher that anyone can learn from.

Tuesday, February 18th 2014


Wednesday, February 26th 2014

Another informative video. This is a common topic with my ESL students and comes up regularly with new learners.

Tuesday, April 15th 2014

“I would love to make out with Jon”, said Mr. E.” = to kiss for a long time, is it not? At least that´s the English phrase back home.

Wednesday, August 31st 2016

The more I study English, the more difficult I find to learn it, strange sentence but certain. I am having an effort but I always have the same problem, I forget whatever I do. It is not good for a student but I will follow studying the language, maybe someday I will success. Thanks a lot, teacher James, I begin to be sure of my level.
