Thank you Alex! It’s a great class. I was out of gas before your lecture and but it worth to study cause I know now more expression. It is out of the question that I quit to study english with you guys unless my computer is out of commision LOL!!
Pd Will be nice if you have videos with conversation between all the teachers (just thinking out loud)

    Very good examples with the idioms, caro! I liked a lot!:)

    Wednesday, July 31st 2013

    It’s hard to get us all together at one time, but it has happened before!

    Tuesday, August 6th 2013

Thank you Alex
Thanks Caro

Thank you so much :)

    I want to talk to you

    Monday, August 12th 2013

      I mean I want to improve my speaking skill, so if you want then we can talk.

      Monday, August 12th 2013

What does it mean: …I gotta…?
Thanks in advance.

Wednesday, July 31st 2013

    ‘I gotta’ is grammatically incorrect. It is more of a spoken form. If you want to say this with proper grammar, the equivalent would be, ‘I have got to’ or ‘I’ve got to’. In the spoken form, ‘got to’ is shortened to ‘gotta’ and the word ‘have’ is dropped.

    Here are some examples:

    “I gotta manage my money.”
    “I gotta obey the laws.”
    “I gotta move to a bigger house.”
    “I gotta impress my boss.”
    “I gotta brush my teeth.”

    Wednesday, July 31st 2013

      Good explanation! Thanks!

      Tuesday, August 6th 2013

    Hi Ivica,
    GOTTA (informal) = have got to = must.
    Examples:
    I gotta go.
    Do what you gotta do.
    I gotta tell you something.

      Thanks helanr.

Thursday, August 1st 2013

Alex, thank you very much! It’s very helpful lesson!

Thursday, August 1st 2013

Thanks Alex!

Thursday, August 1st 2013

Thursday, August 1st 2013

Thank you, Alex!

Thursday, August 1st 2013

Hi, Alex. I saw few days ago a Rebecca lesson about writing numbers in a text. So, she explaind that you use in a text “two” not “2” and “twenty” not “20”. In this lesson you wrote “20 seconds” and “2 days”. It means you are wrong or Rebeca. Just watch the video.

Thursday, August 1st 2013

    Esti un prost.

    Friday, August 2nd 2013

      I wrote to Alex. It means : don’t touch a key or mine.

      Friday, August 2nd 2013

    I never really thought about it, to be honest. Sometimes I write the actual numbers, and sometimes I write how it’s spelled.

    Tuesday, August 6th 2013

…….
….
………
…………
……..

1.” Out with the old & in with the new ”
= get rid of old stuff n replace it with new stuff.

2.” Out with it ” = talk!/say it!/speak! .

3.” Out & out ” = in every way/complete .

Gooodluck 2 all;
:) fatiima!

Thursday, August 1st 2013

    Thanks for the addition! Nice list!

    Tuesday, August 6th 2013

These idioms are very interesting to learn! If I don’t know the meaning of “out to lunch” in this lesson, I will be absolutely confused when someone uses the idiom. Thanks, Alex!

Thursday, August 1st 2013

You and Rebeca are one of my favorite teachers!, Thank you for doing this.(PS Please corect me if I was make somme eror writing this coment).

Thursday, August 1st 2013

      Tuesday, August 6th 2013

Great lesson Alex! Please could you tell me what figure out mean? Thanks!

Thursday, August 1st 2013

Hey Alex,

Many thanks for your kind lesson and your efforts to teaching us..
Could you please clarify to me which one should I use “in, im, un, non” when it comes before the word such as [refrigerated-non refrigerated & correct-incorrect & possible-impossible..etc,] Is there a specific rule to use them?
Your prompt reply highly appreciated,
Thanks in advance

Thursday, August 1st 2013

    Yes and no. There are a few negative prefixes that usually precede certain letters. For example, “im” is used before adjectives that start with “p” or “m.”

    Impossible, impenetrable, imperfect, impatient, etc.

    Immobile, immature, immaterial, etc.

    However, even these are not consistent. For example, we say disproportionate and not misproportionate.

    So…yes, there are some rules that work a lot of the time, but not 100% of the time.

    Tuesday, August 6th 2013

great lesson sir
you are rule of the roost ……
