Hi Alex,it is a very good useful English lesson,but a little bit hard to remember 100%.

Wednesday, November 13th 2013

    Learning a language takes practice and hearing the same thing again and again.

    Tuesday, November 19th 2013

      Exactly Alex. :)

      Tuesday, February 16th 2016

      I agree. But I also agree that it´s too hard to learn.

Hi Alex
thanks for your great effort
I’d like to make a lesson for the most common words that are synonym like
essential vs quintessential
surplus vs excess
and so on
thanks Alex

Wednesday, November 13th 2013

    Not a bad idea. Thanks. I’ll keep it in mind.

    Tuesday, November 19th 2013

Wow! Very useful Alex. I will keep it in mind. And trust me, I always keep my word. And please, keep me posted so that I will keep an eye out for the new coming lessons! ;)

Wednesday, November 13th 2013

You could have mentioned an idiom ‘keep in touch’

Thursday, November 14th 2013

    I thought about it, but it’s a bit simple and I think other teachers have done a lesson on it already.

    Tuesday, November 19th 2013

Thank you, Alex!

Thursday, November 14th 2013

Thank you.

Thursday, November 14th 2013

Hey alex…. I am very grateful and I wanna give you my sincerest thanks from deep inside my heart, your lessons are very helpful and I always find something useful in each one, you real help me a lot in improving my vocab, idioms, and phrases
Thanks a lot man
But I have a suggestion to make, would you do a lesson on a family tree?, well I’m looking forward to hear from you soon.
Once more thanks a lot teacher

Thursday, November 14th 2013

    That would be a long and complicated lesson because I’m not a great artist. Haha. But it’s a good suggestion. I’ll keep it in mind.

Hi Alex,Thank you for the lesson.Please tell me where to use keep and when to use ‘keeps’.How it differs by adding s.

Thursday, November 14th 2013

    Present simple third person.

    I/You/We/They KEEP
    He/She/It KEEPS

    “He never keeps his word.” (he always lies)

    That’s it. :)

Q #7:-
If she keeps her word,you should trust her.
Why you said I don’t trust her?

Monday, November 18th 2013

    (I don’t trust her. She RARELY keeps her word)
    you can’t trust her because it’s rare when she keeps her word …
    Be careful with the word RARELY

    Monday, November 18th 2013

      Exactly. “Rarely” means “almost never.”

      Tuesday, November 19th 2013

Hi Alex .I would like to contact you about my english if you do not mind. thanks

I’d like to learn more phrasal verbs, all of them. You’re the best. What do you say?
