migrate? These three words look similar and have similar meanings. In this vocabulary lesson, I will explain the meanings and differences between these three commonly mixed-up words. After watching, you’ll feel confident when you use these words.
Thank you for clearing us this point.
Nice videos Emma, i love all your lesson. They explain everything clearly and very understandable :-). Thanks so much for your time.
Thank you very much Emma, i really love your way to explain, and all your lessons, thanks again for taking your time to share with us your videos.

Speaking of Migration,I don’t know if I’m going to be banned from EngVid for that i am gonna do,but I have a video which reminds me of today’s subject.
No, it’s lovely! I’m going to share it on our Facebook page.
Thank you for teaching us these small differences between these words.
I have two other words that make me confused.
these two words are agreement and convention!!
What the difference between them and when should i use them?
Thank you very much Emma for responding to my suggestion ^_^.
This video really helped me to recognize the differences among these three words and how to use them.
& btw, I requested this video because i’m going to immigrate to Canada soon and I have been waiting for this moment since 2006 -_-, so thanks God for everything and thank you :).
Congratulations Nader!!! What city will you be living in? I’m very excited for you! Welcome to Canada!

Great lesson, Emma! you rock!
I wanna start my comment by appreciting you for continuing this good work.Today, I like to share my understanding of English with you.I’ve recently learned some new grammar rules from a video lesson made by “Australian Network”.Honestly speaking,I look for various websites on the web which provide English lessons to horn my English skills and “Engvid” is the best one among them I have ever visited as every aspect of this queen’s language is well explained here-be it grammar rules,vocabulary,sentence construction.Now,I return to my topic-It’s about “Word formation”.
Thank you Sona for your comment! I’m glad you appreciate our site!
I am an English teacher from Oman. I really like your way of teaching. Very soon I am going to imitate yourr style. Is that ok with you?
Thank you Yahya for your kind words! What ages do you teach?
I’ve got 9 corrects out of 10.
and thnks for showing example of (south) korea
Well done Lee Jin!! I have many wonderful students and friends who have immigrated to Canada from South Korea. I want to visit South Korea one day!
thank so much Emma but sort of the lesson is confused
please Emma if you can get us more video about TOEFL because I want to get it but I am so scary
have a good day
Thank you for the video suggestion! I recommend that you visit the site http://www.goodlucktoefl.com for some tips!
Also, I think you mean that you are scared and the lesson was confusing. Here is a link to a video that will help you with the difference between confused and confusing: https://www.engvid.com/adjective-endings-ing-ed/
Thank you for your lession. It helps me understand clearly about the meaning of 3 words.
thanks for your lesson. love u emma..
very use full info…
” I will be an immigrant if I emigrate from Thailand and immigrate to Canada.” And
” In Thailand the most of migrant workers are from Cambodia.” Is it True.. Emma?
You used emigrate, migrant and immigration correctly! Well done! There were a few errors in the second sentence which I have corrected.
”In Thailand, most migrant workers are from Cambodia.”
great teaching!!!! thank you
its still confusing…
i thought immigrate is usually using “from” behind it.
and emigrate is using “to” behind it..
thanks emma :*
Thank you for your question! We use emigrate (from) and immigrate (to).
1) My grandmother emigrated from Scotland fifty years ago.
2) I want to immigrate to a country that is warmer than Canada.
Hi Emma I like your lesson is clear and easy to understand, give me more new lesson thanks.
How to pronounce 1700s, 1800s, etc?
Do I have to pronounce “migrate” like /maɪɡrət/, or can I pronounce it like in the two other words — immigrate, emigrate? Basically, those two words have “migrate” in their names.
I’m very pleased to see that you are using the International Phonetic Alphabet! Migrate is pronounced differently than the pronunciation in immigration or emigrate. It is pronounced /maɪgreɪt/.
Very well explained about these words with different meanings. Thank you so much for your great help.
Thank you.I hope to get more out of your lessons.
I wanna be a monarch buttlerflie to migrate 2 ur country but not as a immigrant worker, I don’t like hard work. thank u Emma 4 teaching good English. cya.

Btw, why dont you make a video explaining about these words :Tough, though, thought, through, thorough e throughout, they are quite similar.
Yes, Shadamuska. You are right. These phrases always were hard for me too. Thanks for suggestion.
Im agree with you.
Thank you for the suggestion! It seems like many of you have trouble with these similar words.
It’s a really good idea to have a video explaining the differences between those words, because I always get confused. Thanks Emma! I appreciate your lessons very much.
Very nice class… thanks!
Believed or not I understood better your lesson in English than in French. Thanks this great lesson.
Thanks for these lessons =)
Hello,Emma,I have question about immigration and immigrant. What different are both vocabularies? He is an ‘immigrant’ or ‘immigration’.
Sorry for replying but I’ m not sure. First of all, both words are nouns. The word “immigrant” refers to a person that immigrates permanently(from a country to another) and the word “immigration” is the action, the permanent movement from a country to another. For example, “Immigants start for a new life” and “Immigation to nearby countries is a frequent phenomenon”.
Great explanation Sokou!
immigrant = person
immigration = action
My sister’s husband is an immigrant.
In my Canadian history class, we heard many stories about immigration.
Many immigrants find immigration to be difficult.
Thanks so much for this class. It was very useful for me
As always, thank you very much.
Thanks a lot Emma. I got 8/10.
Such an interesting and useful lecture THANK YOU Emma very much
Hi Emma, thank you for the great lesson! May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you!

We live in a country, in a city, in a town, and in a village. We live on a street.
We move to a country, to a city, to a town, to a village, etc.
For example, I live in Toronto. I live in Canada. One day I may move to another country or I might move to another city. My friend lives in a small village. She lives on Main Street.

Hi Emma. You are a Great teachers,

Hi Emma. You are a Great teachers,
the way you are teaching is fantastic.
Thanks for the lesson. I have some confusion.
I always knew ‘Migrate is to move from one county to another permanently’. When India and Pakistan partition happened many people moved from India to Pakistan and vice versa. We call such people ‘Migrants’.
When I googled the meaning I found this link: http://www.answers.com/topic/migrate
One of the meaning given for Migrate is ” To move from one country or region and settle in another”
If it says settle should not it mean permanently?
Please clarify.Thanks in advance.
Thanks Emma i am really like your lessons and enjoy them , because your pronounciation is very clear for me and you make my English more easier than in the past
MANY THANKS to you
If i made any mistakes in this comment please let me know them

hi my best teacher
could you please allot one of your lesson for explaining about (used to , get used , got used ) in all tenses
this video is very helpful, i answer 10 out of 10, it is hard to use in daily life
Hi Emma, i’m new on your website, and really it is very intersting. I would like to speak Engilsh fleuntly, can you advice me please!!!?
I have just this one question for you, and I hope that you can help me understand this sentence. Is this sentence grammatically correct? I would appreciate a brief explanation if you can, please.
Sentence: When I first started to learn Spanish it was a challenge.
Question: The event happened in the past tense, right? Why the word challenge is without an –ed at the end? Isn’t challenge a verb? I had to looked it up—just to make sure and the dictionary says it is a verb.
Please send me a copy of your response at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also post your reply on Engvid.com site. I will be looking for your response. I like the way you teach!
Thanks so much,
Wow! I like your way of teaching .
By the way i got 10 out of 10 :D
Thanks for your great effort.
Great job!!! Thanks..

HI madam Emma,
thank you for the comprehensive explanation on differentiation of migrate,immigrate and emigrate
Thank you very much for the lesson EMMA
This is an intresting website! I like it.every teacher in this website (teaches english language) teaches English very good with full explainations
i got 10 out of 10 in one time. that’s grt for me
Thanks for this interesting lesson. However, I’d like to make a comment about the last question in your quiz. I think the sentence you used there does not sound natural. We would rather say:”In the 1700s and 1800s, many Irish immigrated to Canada, the USA, New Zealand, and Australia”. I mean we hardly ever use “emigrate” and “immigrate” in one sentence because that would be redundant.
What do you think?
I got 80% not bad.. Thanks Emma for a wonderful lesson!
What is the differences between “Join” and “Joint”?
Thanks a lot Emma.
I got 90 on my test :)
thank you very much , you’re really good teacher .
thxxxxxxxxxEmma you re so helpful
Hello and thank you.So your roots reach London?
Have you ever been in London?
Nice i love all your lessons. They explain me everything clearly and very much understandable . Thanks so much for your great work!
As usual, excellent lesson Emma. The concept is kind of confusing at first, though.
I love the way you teach!
By the way, not that I’m bragging about it, but I got 100% correct. Thanks Emma.
Hi Emma! I have a question: a couple of days ago I was at the airport and a question struck me kind of hard. Could you help to understand why when one comes from abroad has to go through what is called IMMIGRATION, after all, I’m pretty sure most of the people would be either visiting or coming back after they stayed abroad for a certian amount of time. Would this expression be grammatically correct? In Mexico, for example, it is called “departamento de migeación”
I meant to write “departamento de migración” (department of migration)?
Thank you very much for your help.
You are a great teacher and I love how you explain your classes.
my dear teacher
