    i´m from colombia and i think this tools or programs like this one are very important and use full for students like us, we needed tutorials to improve in one or several subjects of the english language like pronuciation, listening, spelling… and the most important thing cut be useb in every place, my house, at the university and dont forget is free…
    The links with the videos is very interesting, i can have different info about other places and hear many people talking about it, that way each person can learn with many options and subjects.

    this video is very interesting because i could see the importance that speak inglish in the world today.

  5. javier says:

    For my part I see it is much easier to learn English if you’re in a city where the native language is English or the language you want to learn, because of somewhat greater intensity and will be practicing all the time. Also the fact of going to another country and experience new cultures, new places, new people an education makes it much nicer language dl. This apart the English language to acquire new knowledge in the language makes them open up new economic and employment opportunities is an important aspect of globalization and communication not only in English speaking if not worldwide.

    This kind of videos makes you be encouraged to study or work or open to new things in life ….

  8. Nery says:

    Long ago, European countries were aware of the importance of learning English to improve their relationships in business, culture and tourism. Today, with globalization, learning English is a priority in all parts of the world as a universal language.
    In the course of this learning has been reported several experiences for teachers and students, concluding that centered learning grammar is not as efficient as it is, the frequent use of the language, especially in the oral aspect, practice to be used, overcoming the fear of making mistakes. With the use of language, students will improve their learning level.
    As English teachers we should consider this recommendation is education

  20. says:

    It’s very interesting to know that English is not the official language in the U.S.A., being the U.S.A. a very heterogenuous country, but perhaps we must first define the term “official” :).
    Overall, a good project this one 🙂

    Hello. I really like this videos because they show the processes that most people face when learning English and I feel like conected to them. However, travel to an English speaking country is not so easy for many people. I agree with people who say that we have to practice a lot at least one hour per day so, the task is there we have to fullfill it

    Dear Daniel,

    I am so sorry. I made a mistake. I found New York city in the map.

    Thanks a lot,
    Warm regards,

  35. Nafis says:

    Dear Daniel,

    Watching your documentary films about English is one of my favorite activities. However, I noticed one error while watching American part. The location of New York city mentioned in the map is wrong. New York city is located along Lake Ontario.

    Thanks a lot for the amazing video. I am looking forward to watching the rest of the films.

    Warm regards,

  36. Nataly says:

    Daniel! Thank you for such enjoyable film! I’m waiting for your next movie!=)

  37. Hanane says:

    Hi Daniel and Joel,

    Thank you for making us visit America.
    What I learned from this video is that the best way to learn English language is to move to a country where the language is spoken. Learners are exposed to all kinds of practice: listening, speaking, reading even understanding English, if I can say this, in an american way i.e. in its real contexts. No doubt, it is an advantage for learners of English Language.

  38. mohamed says:

    to now i didn’t see it
    but everything advantage me I well see it

  39. eva says:

    I thank you very much for the video. I watched the vidio. I learned about learning methods. I expect of next video. I love it!

  40. ERIKA says:

    Now i know that if u want to improve your english level u need to travel abroad because u need to be in contact with the language as much as posible that u can.

  41. Mercedes Iglesias says:

    Thanks a lot for sharing so useful material with me. I think the videos are great and I´m glad to see New York city again.

  42. latifa says:

  45. SELMA says:

    Students become aware of their way in which learning progresses watching series of video projets. For example “thing english, speak english” may be a good slogan,;

  46. latifa says:

    thanks a lot , I’ll enjoy watching this video surely

  47. Astrid Fataki says:

    excellent video!Your help is very important, it’s so beautiful and interesting to listen and see people that are same problems like you; I mean, to know that everyone wants to learn english, whatever is the mother tongue, find the same difficult that i find in learning english.
    Thank very much for your excellent activity

  48. Valentina says:

  50. Ian says:

    Joseph says: If English is not the official language of USA, which one is it?

    I think the answer is there isn’t one. The country of the USA has no official language. But some (not all) US states have English as their official language.

  51. Samuel Rodríguez Cano says:

    Excellent! Althouth for me the 2nd video was better, I think all of them are very helpful and enriching for us who work with and enjoy english language teaching.
    I´ll encourage you to go on with the project

    and how to speak English very well. That English is difficult but is
    not really difficult is you want to be succeed.You have to responsibility for everything that you experience in you life. This
    includes the level of your achievement.

    Good luck for everyone
    Linda K (Hollywood USA)

  62. Alexandre says:

    Great video. For me, the best until now. The music, the landscape and the “atmosphere” of The Big Apple are presented in each scene. The multicultural diversity of people who live or visit New York are well represented by the students who were interviewed.
    Good job, Daniel, congratulations.

  63. Tara Benwell says:

    I agree with Nucha! The music is great. Awesome film once again Daniel and Joel. Congratulations on this amazing feedback from learners and teachers. Looking forward to the next film!

  69. Omar Araya says:

    Hello Everybody

    Thanks for sharing with us this video. I liked it so much. I think it is great way in order to get more motivation for learning or improving English. For me it is so important because I work as a tour guide. I also agree that the effective way for learning English is in a native English country, but also I think to practice for yourself is good, if you don’t have the chance for traveling or studing abroad. The correct use of grammar and phrases adverbs is the most difficult thing for me , because sometime I know that people are understanding me, but not in the right way, that I would.
    Greetings from Peru

  70. naima zouaid says:

    congratulation this video is exciting.if possible i will show it to my pupils next school year. i was really envious of these people who went to the states to improve their english.i never realized my american dream.i hope my students will have more luck.anyway it is an authentic ,down to earth video.looking forward to hearing from you soon.have nice summer days with a lot of sunshine and a swim.bye.

  71. hanan says:

  75. jony says:

    Kudos EnglishClub!!!! ^_^

  76. JO 753 says:

    Nice work! I felt the scenery shots went on too long, but can see how they may be entertaining for international English students. It would have been nice to have a name and native country for the speakers. The production standards were very good and the background music matched well with the video.

    One of the speakers in the video said a sentence with an expression I would like to know the meaning: “To tune the way”.

    Best regard

  80. Nataliya says:

    Thank you very much for this video. I find it very interesting. I’m going to use it with my students in the first lesson after the summer holidays.
    Looking forward to watching new films!

  81. özlem says:


    First of all, thanks for this useful video. I’m an English Instructor in Turkey and I often advise my students to visit a foreign country to improve their English especially their speaking. I’ve been New York and I had the same experience. I think the best way to improve your English is to visit the country where English is used by lots of people. I look forward to watching your new videos. Thanks a lot.

  82. Sadasivan Prof.Dr. says:

    Thanks a million for this great eye-opener video which must have taken a toll on your resourcefulness for sure!None from India if you have observed!Also no one is speaking of London too–the London which foster-mothered this Anglian dialect in the 14th century! Hypermarketing by the US?Those that go to the US come back with a twang and tweaked accent that sounds micromegalous to us!One things tha comes out is that English is highly sought after!How come that the US has not yet– YET– made it her official language?Is she having an identity crisis of sorts btw?

  83. Bashir Ahmad says:

    Salam to everybody and thanks a alot from the video. It was really interesting and i enjoyed alot. wish u more succes and I am wating for more videos.


  84. NhungL says:

    I enjoyed the movie very much. Most of the time, i was not so confident about my English speaking, eventhought people told me the way i spoke English was very good. Now i know, eveybody who is not coming from an English native countries has same feeling as me, but they try to learn and practice everyday to keep up their progress.

    I will back to school to take another English course. Thank you for your video, it encourage me very much!

  85. hongtm says:

    I watched the video, I think it helps our who learning english so much and hope to have many ways for learning english better than better.Thanks!

  86. Ahmad says:

    Hi,oh it is the best way to learn and teach English to all the people, I really enjoy it very much,and it is better just say ” thank you very much and apreciate so much” and I want to ask you ,please coutinue this way, you are really doing the best,THANKS.

  87. hiennguyen says:

    this video gives me the overviews to the studying life of students in NYC. Hoping you continue more interesting films in the future.

  88. Erin says:

    It’s great! I lived that in Canada and it was an amazing experience.

    Thank you!

  89. quynh says:

    it’s very good. I hope the EClub could provide with such more video clips . Oneday when i have a change i’ll travel to USA to study English. Thanks a lot.

  90. monica says:

    I think all your videos are very useful for teachers(specially without subtitles)in order to use them for listening activities.For next films I suggest to change a bit the topic and go to customs to know a bit more about people´s life in the countries you visit.
    Thank you very much, and congratulations because you´re better and better.

  91. Ken Stevens says:

    I enjoyed this video as it again highlighted that the best way to learn a language, be it English or any other one for that matter, is to learn to think in the language that you are learning, listen to and speak with native speakers and then supplement that with reading.
    In most countries where English is taught in primary, junior and senior high schools emphasis is on grammar and writing – great for the internet and a fantastic foundation for learning to speak a language but without communicating with native speakers it is virtually impossible to master a language because you need to speak with native speakers to improve your pronunciation, listening ability and confidence. It should be remembered that you learned your native language, in the main, by listening to others speak – the first words we utter are those that we have been listening to over and over again for 10 or more months. You can achieve this by living overseas, as these students are doing in the United States, or you can attend English conversation classes and practise speaking and listening.
    If you are serious about becoming proficient in a language you must practise it everyday.and stick at it for a number of years.

  92. Margaret says:

    “Tales of America” was very well done. I am an ESL teacher in Connecticut. I will show this video to my summer school students, and will let you know what they think about it. I think it made some very good points, especially getting across the idea that it is VERY important to talk with someone in English every day. Thank you! You do good work!

  93. Maria Edith Tavares Rodrigues says:

    Thanks a lot for sending this video. I agree with one of the students who said that the important is speaking even if the grammar or the words aren’t correct at all. If we don’t put ourselves into the environment of english speaking we’ll never learn the language. Congratulations to the “actors”. Studying is the only way we’ll achieve the goals.

  94. farah says:

    hello, thanks alot for sending me this video , i realy want to speak english fluently , i can understand the language very well, but the problem that i feel afraid when i just start talking not to make mistakes??

  95. akif says:

    hi, I watch video It’s very very goog thanks for your efforts I don’t know very well about new york but thanks to the your web site I now know something about it finally, thanks very much bye!

  96. LuisCarlos says:

    It’s a great video from New York , it remember me when I was there ten years ago . I can see the things are usual like the past ..people runing , the yellow cabs , the shoping center, etc. I’d have to go again there in order to refresh my English.
    Thanks a lot

  97. selma says:

    it can be inferred from these tale,
    ” Don’t fear, Just speak! ”

    “If you live in your native land, creat full of english environmental functions. Do bombard yourself into. ”


  98. Amira says:

    Althought the students speaking in the film made a few mistakes which always happens,the film is enjoyable, and gives you the feeling that you are really in the USA. I admire this project very much.

  99. Nedime says:

    Thanks for your effort… it’s very kind of you.

  100. José Vieira Pedroso says:

    I like the video ,I could learn something moreabout the english language. In this video we can see people from many parts of the world learning english for better communication. I have travelled to many countries and I can say how is important you know english. Congratulations and continue sending us more videos , thank you very much.Who knows in the future you make a film in Brazil.

  105. Juzhni says:

    It was the best one for me. Thank you!!

  106. Juzhni says:

    It was the best one for me. Thank to you!!

  107. Gemmie Kwok says:

    This film echoes feeling and answers within myself both as a former English language learner and as a non-native teacher of English. As a former leaner of English, I agree that the best way to learn English is to put yourself in the environment where you can hear, speak and interact with the native speakers. Of course it is even better if you have the opportunity to live in that country such as U.S.A., England, Australia, or Canada, where you can interact with those native speakers of English on the daily basis. As a teacher, I totally agree with the statement the student from Spain made in this film that you know when you are fluent in English when you realize that you think in English not in your native language before you speak English and it usually happens when you are surrounded by people who speak English days and nights.

    Thanks for making these films! I think you got a great thing going here. Keep them coming.

  108. Frances Ruth Harris says:

    I like this excellent presentation because it views learning English
    as an excellent way to proceed in a global society~! Thank you for providing this for all who have the courage to cultivate good language skills.

  109. fahri says:

    Thank you very much you for video.I learned something While I watch video.

  110. Marcos says:

    The video was interesting, but very easy, showing the importance and difficulties of learning English and also pointing the, for me, only way to learn a foreign language, which is going to a place where this language is spoken and be forced to speak and listen it.

  111. Gudrun says:

    Sorry to say, but it was quite boring!

  112. amar says:

    This video is veryi simple and not attractive for me. But I wouldt like to tell them thanks for your effort for my english study in this site. I can make such video or filming, I want to know about young people`s daily life style in the USA. topic should be very clear with the action. It was not interesting for me really, please develope when you make filming.

  113. Nucha says:

    Thanks for making the nice viedo to us . That made me know many tales from America why poeple like to take there . I believe that it’s true stories in real life of there . BTW ,wonderful pictures ,location , music there are excellent !( I like musically so much ) Now you are professional filmmakers I think !

    Good luck !

  114. Summy says:
