May l know why he's said if you like chocolate '' like I do ''instead of ''as I do'',cause in one of their lessons they said we use ''as'' with verb+pronoun.if I remember well,and'' like '' just with nouns ,brief with only one word,if you see what I mean...please need an answer a.s.a.p ;-)

Richard Marksman (5 years ago)
Hello, James. I like your English lessons. I live in Ukraine, but I know English pretty well. Your lessons are very useful! And not only yours -- I like also lessons of all Engvid teachers: Emma, Ronnie, Rebecca, Alex, Jon, Valen and Adam.
Cesar Navarrete (5 years ago)
He is James, not James. It is also called "black person" instead of "niger", that is really wrote as "nigger". Is his race important for learning English?
خالد الشمري (5 years ago)
Excuse me, I'm a student, I want to learn English, I speak English, my problem in the English language is read, the number of characters in English 26 letters but sometimes in one word is not pronounced one of the characters or combine two characters seen a new character is an example phone utter two letters p and h we get a new pronunciation close to that of the character f why examples too many I can not mention. My only dream is to read any word in the English language can you help me ?
thank u very much, it's good and easy

Hey James what do you think is that hardest part of learning English?
Learn English NGLC (5 years ago)
pronunciation is one of the hardest parts of English I think, so many parts of America say things differently and its hard to know what way to say certain words

Why do you have to act so weird sometimes. It totally disrupts my concentration. No; but, really, you are the best!
1natalyna1 (5 years ago)
Great teacher!
I teach this lesson as "Open and Closed syllables" because not only "E" can make vowels sound like (!) they're called in the alphabet (open syllable)! Anyway, good job, James!
