Hi, James
I could not drink hard liquor even if only a drop of it. Today, I’ve learnt a lot of new drinking vocabulary. Many thanks for this helpful lesson, James :)

    Hi Chloe, a few drops (a sip) of hard liquid won’t do any harm to you, I bet. But a bullet of Vodka -for instance- will make you think it twice, that’s for sure.

    So you are a teetotaler, aren’t you? Me? I’m a social drinker. Alcohol sometimes helps you to break the ice and feel more at home at social meetings.

    That’s it for me! Have a great day!

      Hi, Regino
      Long time no see. How are you? Thank you for inspiring me.

      For now, It’s easier to just say no “the first time” to avoid drinking too much in the future.I’ve always remembered a quote by Raymond Chandler, as: “Alcohol is like love. The first kiss is magic. The second is intimate. The third is routine….”.
      How do you think about that quote, Regino? :)

      You are so nice. Hihi… but, don’t abet me in drinking alcohol. (I don’t want to play with fire, Keke…).

      Now, let’s drink a toast to our friends. :)
      Thanks for your comment. Take care, Regino. :)

    Tuesday, August 9th 2016

I am a social drinker. When I was younger I used to bet with my friends who would slug the beer back faster, I always won, ’til Michael (a friend of mine) defeated me. You’re a very good teacher.

Saturday, August 6th 2016

Hi James! To be honest, many times i cannot stand watching a video with much time but this one was faster and i enjoyed a lot! I have acquired new vocabulary and phrases. I am a social drinker even though I do not know how to drink, i mean, I get drunk easier, that is why I choose soft drink.

Thanks for your assistance.
Be well!
Greetings from Venezuela.

Cin Cin from Italy. The best place where you can drink the best wine of the world:)

      Monday, October 17th 2016

Thanks James!!
Today we learnt a lot of new and interesting vocabulary.

Saturday, August 6th 2016

whisky please!)

Saturday, August 6th 2016

Hi James.
It was an interesting lesson because I love drinking, so I learned a lot from you about drinking. I used to be a social drinker, going drinking with friends was so fun! but spending too much money for drinks isn’t very nice. I don’t have good memory of drinking hard liquor. After I took a shot of tequila or 2, it was disastrous lol.
Anyway, it’s summer and a great season to drink beer!! Drinking under the blue sky as watching baseball is one of national pastime! Woo, I’m getting thirsty!
Thank you and See you later!

Thursday, August 18th 2016

Very good lesson and performance, James!

I’m a social drinker. I appreciate the taste of the wines from Chile. They are not very expensive and have perceptible and distinguishable flavors.

If one day you come here, you can have a swig of my caipirinha :)

Saturday, August 20th 2016

Hello James!

Thank you for the lesson. Well, I confess that I am a teetotaler, and I am very proud of that. Beer, wine and hard liquors can do no good for any person. They are all a fantasy. They destroy the health, the family and the society. In fact, I don’t consume even soft drinks. They are too sweet and acid.

I would rather drink a lot of water and natural juices. These are the best drinks on earth!

See you in the next video!

Sunday, August 21st 2016

thanks. I’m watching engvid’s videos often, but I don’t know how I can mark that I watched videos.

Sunday, August 21st 2016

Thank you so much buddy,mr james ! good explanation and keep it up brother ! 10/10

Sunday, August 21st 2016

Friday, August 26th 2016

no friend no life hi all !!!

Saturday, September 3rd 2016

Well, very good luck, I have guessed the answers of the questions, the Spanish polo shirt maybe a clue to guess all the meaning, but it’s been a good explanation, good performance and we can enjoy our drink from now on. Thank you very much and regards.

Sunday, September 4th 2016

Thanks James,
I enjoy your lessons and I really learn more on that.

Wednesday, September 7th 2016

Sunday, September 11th 2016

Thank you for the lesson and fun )))

Thursday, September 15th 2016

James, u are have done this lesson in style,freestyle as usual! its amazing.
maybe the word “tipsy” should be added? or how do they say when one is pleasantly drunk, relaxed for a drink? in russian we say the word funnily drunk. of course u can imagine evil russians who always drink the hardest liquors only :o)

Monday, September 19th 2016

James, you are the best teacher ever. I always have fun with your lessons.

Wednesday, September 28th 2016

Very funny and helpful lesson at the same time) as all of James’s lessons

Wednesday, October 5th 2016

You are good teacher. Thank you lesson. I request slow down a little, please. I can not catch your speed.

Friday, October 7th 2016

Thanks James, it’s a good lesson!

Wednesday, October 12th 2016

Hello James
Thank you for your instructives lessons.
However i can’t really catch the difference between a drunkard and an alcoholic i know that the last one is a medical condition but someone who drinks a lot even if he is able to work or do thing, he is an alcoholic in the people opinion.

Sunday, October 16th 2016

10/10 yey!

Friday, October 21st 2016

Thank you for such a funny and great lesson!

Monday, October 24th 2016

It was really comprehensive lesson about drinking. Thank you James!

Monday, October 31st 2016

Thanks for the drinking lesson. Just an aside for the word or concept of abstaining. I am not a teetotaler because I am a recovering alcoholic. So in the US I would say I have been clean and sober for (fill in the length of time). In the US, for many recovering alcoholics, being clean and sober is a bigger deal than abstention. Telling someone you are clean and sober for X amount of time means you have not consumed any alcohol for what ever time you stated. Abstention simply means I am not currently drinking. I’m not sure if this meaning holds true outside of the US.

Hallo James, I think you have a mistake in one Word! My Translater says teetotaler is writting with double l so teetotaller. I find your clip are very fresh and nice made.

Best wish


Sunday, March 12th 2017

    This is a difference between North American and UK English – a single “l” is acceptable in NA English. E. g. traveler vs. traveller.

Thursday, July 26th 2018

Hey James

I don’t know what kind of drinker I am. Maybe a social drinker or maybe a teetotaler. I haven’t tasted any beer or wine or hard liquor but I like to have a sip on those drinks. I like to take a shot in a bar. I don’t want to swig other’s drink rather I like to buy my own drink and like to sip it. IF I slug my drink because It would be a choke for me. Thanks, James for such a nice lesson. I would like to use these tips if I have a chance to go on a bar.
