Hi alex thanks for great job and best lesson
I learned more from you and your lessons and when do you gonna upload the next video? ;-)

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    “When are you gonna upload your next video?” It should be in two weeks. Thanks for watching!

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

Alex i wanted to ask . In the last question of quiz. Aren’t that both sentence could be correct. When does she free? Or when is she free? Although,In both sentences subject verb agreement is right . Give me your briefing.

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    Free is an adjective. That’s why it’s correct to ask “When is she free?”
    When you ask something using the auxiliaries DO/DOES a verb is requiered. In the question “When does she free” there’s not a verb.
    Hope it helps.

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

      I got it .Thank you so much Joselu!

      Thursday, October 20th 2016

      thank you also for clarifying this for me joselu

      Thursday, October 20th 2016

      I see the question has already been answered. :) Yep, “free” is an adjective…you can also use it like a verb, but in a different sense.

      “When did they free the slaves?”

      I hope this helps!

      Thursday, October 20th 2016

Hi Alex
Thanks for such a good lesson

Thursday, October 20th 2016

When will I learn English enough to be considered like a native speaker?
This is a very tough question, I admit.

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    Very tough indeed. I’m learning French and I don’t think I’ll be close to native proficiency in terms of fluency, pronunciation, vocabulary, etc. for many more years. If you can take an intensive language class, your progress will be much quicker, but if you’re working and only have a few minutes a day to practice, it can take much longer.

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

      In my opinion you should think u was born again in french speaking family. It will take u about 7 years to be like a first year french schoolboy.

      Tuesday, November 1st 2016

I got 10/10. :D
It is a clear lesson and I got the points.
Thank you very much, Mr. Alex.

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    My pleasure. Nice job on the quiz!

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

Hi Alex
Nice video I got 08 out of 10, but I am curious about question no. 4 when is this due? or when does this due and other than question no 10 when is she free? or when does she free? I need you kind attention to clarify make a good sensation.

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    “Due” is an adjective and needs the auxiliary “to be” in this case.

    “Free” is also an adjective in the second example, and therefore needs “to be” as the auxiliary as well.

    Only use “do/does/did” in questions and negatives when it is used with a simple/base verb, and not with adjectives, numbers, nouns, etc.

    I hope this helps a bit!

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

      Perfect Alex. Parfait, comme d’hab (d’habitude).

      Saturday, October 22nd 2016

Thanks, Alex. Very interesting lesson.

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    My pleasure. Thanks for watching it.

Thursday, October 20th 2016

J’ai la même question qu’Anny196 et Muhammad Abbas. Merci Alex.
Hi Alex

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    Hey beernaard,

    I’ll copy and paste the response I posted above…

    “Due” is an adjective and needs the auxiliary “to be” in this case.

    “Free” is also an adjective in the second example, and therefore needs “to be” as the auxiliary as well.

    Only use “do/does/did” in questions and negatives when it is used with a simple/base verb, and not with adjectives, numbers, nouns, etc.

    I hope this helps a bit!

Thank you for all your help.

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    You’re very welcome! Thanks for watching and for continuing to study with EngVid!

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

Hi Alex, nice tips.
I enjoyed your lesson.
But, I have 2 questions:
1. Is it ‘when’ contraction use in formal conversation?
2. In which case I use the auxiliary ‘do/did’ in ‘wh’ questions in general?
For example, You’ve used ‘do’ in the third question, but not in the second one.

Thanks

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    In speaking, question words are frequently contracted with their auxiliaries. It’s the same for ‘when.’

    “When have” – “when’ve” in speaking
    “When are” – “when’re” in speaking
    “When is” – “when’s” in speaking
    “When did you” – “When’jyoo?”

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

very nice! thank you

Thursday, October 20th 2016

its great lesson for beginner alex thank you, we are waiting more from you

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    Thanks, SKIKDA! I’d love to produce content quicker, but my videos usually come out once every two weeks or so.

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

8/10. )))
I’m confused in the sixth and the tenth question

Thursday, October 20th 2016

Thanks Alex!!Excellent lesson as usual!!
Just one question: I´ve always heard the word “due” pronounced as /dju:/, and you pronounce it as /du/. Is this because /dju:/ is the British way to pronounce it??

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    You got it. :) I have a co-worker from London who says it as “dju” and I always think it sounds weird. Haha.

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

      Yes, and mentioned in the video word “schedule” in british english would sound the other way)) It’s everlasting theme -how Amerikan pronounceation differ from British’s one

      Thursday, October 20th 2016

thanks Alex .. I have a question ..can you please explain why this option is wrong
“when is the play begins”

Greetings From Cairo,Egypt.

Thursday, October 20th 2016

    You can’t combine a simple verb with the verb “to be” in question form. It needs to be “When does the play begin?” If you are focusing on a simple ACTION in a question, you must use the auxiliaries “do/does/did.”

    Thursday, October 20th 2016

Hi Alex

Hey Alex!
You’re so much fun. It’s cool to learn English with you, always. But uh, I learned all those questions a long time ago. Looking forward to an advanced video.

Go easy on the grammar! I happen to love it, I’m always improving it, but make it clear. Hehe!

Everything you teachers teach us is quite clear. I always put something new in my brain with you guys. Thanks a lot!

I got it Alex. Thanks for this lesson

Friday, October 21st 2016

thanks Alex this is great jop

Friday, October 21st 2016

Hi dear Alex. THANK YOU
i think learning grammars leads to thinking about what you want to speak, before speaking and that’s why the beginner speakers cant speak fast …for instance when an american guy wants to speak, he doesn’t think about…i don’t know how i say what i mean, i mean it works like a Multiplication table in our mind…we could give answer without thinking about the process. best regards.

Friday, October 21st 2016

Saturday, October 22nd 2016

Please tell me which is correct and why?

1) Who sings in the band?
2) Who does sing in the band?

Sunday, October 23rd 2016

    Number( 2) is correct because (s) was used in ( does)… so you don’t need it in the verb ( sing ) ..

    Friday, November 4th 2016

thanks alex.. would you like explain me why no.5 the correct answer is “When are you going to learn?” i was wrong to choose
“When do you going to learn?”
thanks

Sunday, October 23rd 2016

    The verb here(going) needs helping verb ( are ).

    Friday, November 4th 2016

Hi Alex, I am so confused about this question:”When was the last time you called your mom?”. I know we have to use simple past tense for this sence, but we have:”When did you go to school” not “When did you went to school?. So, I think “When was the last time you call your mom?”. Please make me more clear. Thanks a lot, Alex!
