Thank you Alex! Useful lesson. I’m beginner learner yet, but I enjoyed the video.

Monday, May 20th 2013

    Thanks for watching.

    Monday, May 20th 2013

      thank my teach

      Hi Alex,
      What’s the different between “I could care less” and “I couldn’t care less”?
      thanks in advance.

      Thursday, March 20th 2014

        I could care less is like you almost don’t care about it.
        BUt I couldn’t care less is when you don’t care anything about it any single thing.

Great Lesson!

Monday, May 20th 2013

;) great!

Monday, May 20th 2013

Great lesson Alex. Can I request you to explaing about “gerund”

Monday, May 20th 2013

    That sounds like a great idea.

    Monday, May 20th 2013

Thanks a lot, and could I ask you a question about #7 – some milk-> non countable but, yet still need to use “are” instead of “is”? sorry if I’ve made thought otherwise :)

Monday, May 20th 2013

    We think of non-count nouns as being singular, so we should use “There is some milk.”

    Monday, May 20th 2013

Thanks Alex.
Your lesson is always great!^^
I got it without confusing.

Monday, May 20th 2013

    “I got it without confusion” or “I got it without getting confused” is what you’re trying to say here. :)

    Monday, May 20th 2013

      Wow, Alex!
      “..confusion” vs “..getting confused”…
      It seems to me this is a great theme for a new lesson! ;)

      …If the lesson doesn’t exist yet by this time.

      Monday, October 31st 2016

I guess “I have gone to Ohio 3 times” is wrong?
“I have been to Ohio 3 times” is correct?
because when you use “I have been to Ohio” I have gone there and come back.

I’ve gone to Ohio.
This means that you have gone to Ohio and you are still there.

I’m confusing,can someone explain it to me?

Monday, May 20th 2013

    I think your 2 sentences are all correct . Because in lesson , our teacher used ” went ” , not ” was ” or “were ” , and he tried to correct mistake ..

    Wednesday, May 29th 2013

      By the way , this sentence ” I have been to Ohio 3 times ” . In gramma , it’s not wrong , but in meaning , it’s not smootly . I think this sentence without “3 times ” is the best .

      Wednesday, May 29th 2013

    Nobody can explain it better then you did it yourself. You are absolutely right! You can say “I’ve been to SOMEWHERE 3 times”. “I went to SOMEWHERE in 2013” is also correct but “I’ve gone to SOMEWHERE 3 times” is a big mistake. “have gone” means you are still there, you haven’t come back yet! It’s always explained in all grammar books for elementary and intermediate levels. Good luck.

    Saturday, November 9th 2013

Good lesson. I enjoyed it!

Monday, May 20th 2013

You got 8 correct out of 10 …. :)

nice .. Thank you very much Alex !!!

Monday, May 20th 2013

good edit video, thanks

Monday, May 20th 2013

Thank you so much. You are a good teacher.

Monday, May 20th 2013

mmmmm 6 – 10 :(

Monday, May 20th 2013

Question #7.The are some milk in the fridge,this is the correct answer because some is plural so we must use there are instead of there is.please explain if I’m wrong.

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

    “Some” isn’t plural or singular because it isn’t a noun. “Some” is an adverb in this case — how much milk is there?. “Milk” is the noun you’re looking for in this sentence. “Milk” is like water, it’s uncountable, so you should use matching verb — “is”.

    Tuesday, May 21st 2013

    Milk is uncountable, for this reason you say there is!!

    Tuesday, May 21st 2013

Another very useful lesson, thank you very much Alex!

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

Hi, Alex. How to improve my pronunciation?

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

    try your best! i hop you do that.

    Wednesday, June 5th 2013

Hello, Alex. I have a question. Why do we say “I haven’t read any of the letters”? Why is “I don’t have read any of the letters” wrong?

Thanks.

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

    “I don’t have read” — what does this mean? xD It could be “I don’t read” — in the present tense, or “I haven’t read” — in the perfect tense — remember that “read” has all three forms the same.

    Tuesday, May 21st 2013

    hey chudika,
    sorry 4 the intervention, but the first sentence u r talking about the pp that sth is already done, but ur second sentence was using don’t which it refers to the present while have refers to the pp
    so it’s the same like u r saying i haven’t eating…. which it refers to the pp and the present in the sametime
    thx

    Tuesday, June 4th 2013

Hello Alex!
as far as I know from what I learned in high school,I saw you using (gone) instead of (been)in this example: “I’ve gone to Ohio 3 times” or it should be: “I’ve been to Ohio 3 times” because you say (been) when you want to say that you have gone somewhere and come back, or to say that you have visited somewhere.

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

Great and not easy lesson. I’m French and I see that the froggies are not the only ones to make mistakes
I’m lucky: my best teacher (my wife a native English speaker) talks whitout mistakes. She wants to be a very exemple for me

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

I often use “there’s two” in speech but only when “there” and “is” are contracted. I wouldn’t say “there is two”. xD

Alex, I also have a question concerning “of” and “about”. Can we use them interchangeably? For instance: “Tell me something about/of him.”

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

Thank you Alex!
Sometimes I hear these mistakes and then I get confused.

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

10 out of 10, thanks Alex
BTW, even Microsoft makes mistakes with fewer and less.

    And then they made an even bigger mistake, Windows 8.

    Saturday, May 25th 2013

      Well noticed!;)

      Sunday, May 26th 2013

Thank you Alex! It was amazing and very easy lesson (for me). I’ve done the quiz 100% Thank you very much!

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

hi Alex.thank you. it is very good lesson. it surprise me.

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

You keep the bar raised, as always :) Alex, in my country language teachers basically ephasize on grammar. That is way, when I want to say somethig, firstly I think about the correct form, structures, order and so on… It took a while before I start talking. In my opinion, there’s no point in studying in that kind of way, if at the end of our educational path we can’t speak fluently! Maybe you have some tips or just one essential advice for those of use, who really want to tackle this ‘speaking anxiety’ and feel more confident?

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

People should be really glad they have you as their Teacher, you rock! There are many more mistakes they are used to making, both native and ESL students, we’re all human beings in the end!!!

Keep your excellent job up, man!

Best regards from Brazil.

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

I am pretty sure “I could have gone to Ohio 3 times is incorrect too”.
Wouldn’t “I’ve been to Ohio three times” suit better semantically?

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

Hi Alex. Can I say: I´ve gone to China 3 times?

I thought I should say : I´ve been to China 3 times.

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

    Hey Claudio! I think what you’re saying is correct. Gone brings the idea of not having returned yet.

    Tuesday, May 21st 2013

there is no doubt you are the best would you please say what does it mean …fool around..

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

That’s awesome and extremely dynamic lesson Alex!

Please, keep that style of teaching, man!

You are cool!!!

thanks

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

On the first mistake -Double negatives, may I also say: I saw nothing. Is it the same I didn´t see anything ?
On the second mistake – I couldn´t care less sorry by my boring question, but it´s sounds impolite or scorful as “I don´t care”, isn´t it?

Thanks Alex by useful lesson!

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

You got 9 correct out of 10.
:)

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

Thank you, this is so useful

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

Thank you Alex, the lesson was terrific!!!
Can I ask you to explain the linking words? This topic is really tricky for non-native speakers. I know that a few videos about that have already been done and uploaded on EngVid, but I can’t find the basic overview of all linking words here or any mentions about some of them, though. So it will be superb if you would deepen the existing information.
I’m really looking forward to see your video(s) about that topic.

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

    Hey VLALIMILEV
    To look forward to watching (it’s in -ing form)

    Tuesday, May 21st 2013

      Thank you! I’ve never thought that -ing form is supposed to be there, but I’ll definitely remember that.

      Wednesday, May 22nd 2013

        Anytime, babe.

        Never forget, all three-word phrasal verbs must be followed by a verb in -ing form.

        See you around…

        Thursday, May 23rd 2013

Many Thanks Alex your lessons very good

Tuesday, May 21st 2013

Hi Alex! Thanks for the video, it was really useful! Now, Help me out here: Why do they make mistakes like ” I were…” instead of ” I was…” and “I wish I were…” instead of “I wish I was…”? Bye!

Wednesday, May 22nd 2013

Hi Alex. Talking about DOUBLE NEGATIVE. Can I say I don´t know anything. but can I say. I KNOW NOTHING?

Wednesday, May 22nd 2013

To know nothing means to don´t know anything, right?

Wednesday, May 22nd 2013

    Yes, Claudio, you’re right, besides, it’s quite used in common speech. Remember that song from Witney Houston “I have nothing”? Quite famous!!!

    Thursday, May 23rd 2013

      Oh, I like this song! Good example, thalinho! You are an expert in English, huh? :)

      Saturday, May 25th 2013

        Hey, Janilza, how’s everything going? Hope you’re fine. Yes, I couldn’t agree more, I miss that kind of songs singers used to sing, not anymore =/

        And, no, I’m not that expert as you mentioned, I can get by though!

      Hi. I have a question. There is a movíe called WE BOUGHT A ZÔO. Well. It is simple past. But I think should be We’ve BOUGHT a zôo, past perfect? Could you explain that to me?

      Monday, May 27th 2013

        In this case you use both of which! You are not comparing to any verbal tense!

        Monday, May 27th 2013

          Wow, Thalinho! I have just tried to explain that to Claudio! :) And I see I was right…The problem is that I’m not as fluent as you are!

          Monday, May 27th 2013

          By the way, could you please read my reply to him? Bye for now and take care..:)

          Monday, May 27th 2013

          Ok, Janilza, I’ll check it out, in fact, just doing… =)

Hi Alex,

I can’t believe english people really do these mistakes

Friday, May 24th 2013

Thanks Alex and all the engVid teachers.

Friday, May 24th 2013

Hi Alex ..

Is it Correct to say

“I have gone to Ohio 3 times”
“I have been to Ohio 3 times” ?

I am a little bit confused now please explain!!

Thank you for the Lesson!!

Saturday, May 25th 2013

    Both are fine. One is the past participle of “go,” and the other of the verb “be.”

    Tuesday, May 28th 2013

    Oh, no!I’m extremely sory but Alex is not right! You can’t say “I have gone to Ohio 3 times’. It’s a big mistake! The biginers frequently make it. When you HAVE GONE somewhere it means that you still there. ‘I’ve gone to Ohio’ meams that you have gone there recently and you are still there. You should say ‘I’ve been to Ohio’ if you’ve already come back. Or ‘I went to Ohio last year’. So “I have BEEN to Ohio 3 times” is only right version.

    Saturday, November 9th 2013

      Thank you Xana!

      I have been following a Grammar Book It says the same thing about How to use “GONE & BEEN” :D

      Sunday, November 10th 2013

l00% correct! Thanks, Alex!

Saturday, May 25th 2013

Thank you for the Lesson!Great lesson!

Sunday, May 26th 2013

Hi everyone. I have a question. There is a movíe called WE BOUGHT A ZÔO. Well. It is simple past. But I think should be We’ve BOUGHT a zôo, past perfect? Só, anybody can help me?

Sunday, May 26th 2013

    Hi, Claudio Santos! In my opinion it’s just a matter of context, after all it’s a title of a movie. There is no need to be too much specific… You know, I wish I could help you and give the correct answer, but I’m not so good in English…But I really think both cases are correct to be the name of that movie…

    Monday, May 27th 2013

      Thanks Janilza. I Think you re right. Because it is a title. If were someone talk to somebody and telling him about buying a ZOO could be : Hey John, we´ve bought a zoo!. Thanks for answer my question.

      Tuesday, May 28th 2013

      Hey, Janilza, I’m here as you requested.

      Both “Simple past and Present Perfect” have their many uses, however, for now let’s check over Carlos’s sentence only, shall we?

      When giving news we quite often use the present perfect to announce what has happened. In his sentence, for instance, is somehow a news or just something he wanted to tell somebody.

      Look: I’ve bought a Zoo! (it has a relation to the present, you have bought in the past but you now own it)

      We then switch to the simple past to give the details. For example:

      – Hey, Jazilza, We’ve bought a Zoo!
      – Really? Such a good news. When did you buy it?
      – We bought it last month near Denver, you know I always wanted to have one!
      – oh, congrats, now you have yours!

      Have you noticed that when we specify when something happened we use simple present? Because the action of buying that thing has already happened and finished that’s the difference.

      * although native use simple past to give news, it’s not considered grammatically wrong. What would be wrong is use Present Prefect with an specific point in the past.

      Hope it helps.

      Wednesday, May 29th 2013

        Hi. Now I can see. Sometimes we can use both, simple past and presente perfect. If I am talking to someone and I want to tell him that I bought a zoo I just say. Hi, I´ve bought a zoo. In this case I am doing a relation between past and presente, PRESENT PERFECT. In other hand I can say WE BOUGHT A ZOO as a title of a movie. The action of buying has happened, no matter when. Just happened. Thanks and sorry about my english. I ve been studying by myself. I don´t attend a regular english course.

        Wednesday, May 29th 2013

          Just say the words, Carlos!

          Best regards

          Wednesday, May 29th 2013

      Jenilza, you are good AT English not IN English!

      Wednesday, May 29th 2013

    Wednesday, May 29th 2013

Thanks. What about ”I am done”, I’ve heard it a lot and I wonder whether it is a good English or not.

Wednesday, May 29th 2013

    Meanings:

    #1. To be finished.
    #2. To be fed up.
    #3. To give up/in

    Wednesday, May 29th 2013

      Thanks. So it is a correct English.

Great Lesson, I got 10… yessss!!!!

Friday, May 31st 2013

I am disappointed that you are teaching double negatives as bad grammar. A double negative only makes a positive in certain mathematical formulae. There is no strictly logical sense in which doubling a negative creates a positive. It is a development of grammar, not a mistake. Why suggest otherwise? I stopped watching at that point in fear that you might go on to split infinitives!

Friday, May 31st 2013

thank you very much! Sir Alex! This video is great!

Wednesday, June 5th 2013

Hi teacher Alex. Thanks for sharing this English lesson. I’m a newbie here, but I really enjoyed the lessons. Cheers.

Thursday, June 6th 2013

hi Alex i’m new member , i find your lesson very interesting , i got a trouble of pronouncing word ending with ed so would you mind taking time to give video about it.., thanks alots

Friday, June 7th 2013

That’s quite interesting. i therefore just recalled some important discussion that was initiated by me with a teacher in some School in England while i was over there about three years ago. I’ve noticed that English people are mostly using Did instead of Have done even if the situation was happening just few seconds ago. They should use have gone, done instead using did, went etc.

If however you consider this topic is really important please, prepare a vidio for getting a bit more clarification on that…

Appreciating your effort and thanking you ..

Hi Alex, thanks for the great lesson. I was always wondering about the “Is/are – thing”, when watching TV-Shows in English. I thought, it might be some kind of slang, but now I know, that it`s just a common mistake … thanks!

As far as I know, the sentence “I’ve gone to Ohio 3 times” would not be correct. I don’t find any sense on it, at least. Alex, could you please explain us its meaning and compare it with “I’ve been to Ohio 3 times” as well? Thank you!

That’s why Shania Twain’s song Still The One says:
We mighta took the long way…
instead of:
We mighta taken the long way?

As a native English (UK) speaker, I must point out that the mistake “I could care less” is only made in American English. British people will always say “I couldn’t care less”. That is it is not possible for me to care less than I do = I don’t care. Whereas Americans saying “I could care less” = It is possible for me to care less than I do currently = I DO care!

    British English!!! I adore it! I’m keen on British films. Thanks a lot for your comment! I wonder what you are doing here?

Hi, Alex. You are a very good teacher. I’m really grateful.
Thanks for your lessons. :)
I like to know why ” Oh my God! ” is an offensive term? And what is the difference between goodness , gosh and God. Are they the same? Should I capital gosh and goodness too?

Hi Alex :)
I’m still confused about “could/couldn’t care less”
Why is No.3’s answer “couldn’t care less”?
Why is No.6’s answer “could care less”?
Should I watch this video again?

Brad Pitt has a new haircut!
Correct answer is: “I couldn’t care less.”
But I really wanna say: “I could care less.”…

Tuesday, December 24th 2013

    And this is why I got 9/10… XD

    Tuesday, December 24th 2013

Hello teacher! i’m not sure about the third mistake. Why we can’t say ” I could care less”? even so, we must say ” I couldn’t care less” .
In the first mistake you said about double negative. We don’t say “I didn’t see nothing” but we say ” I didn’t see anything”. So, what is the different between these tow? Less is the negative, but why we can use with Couldn’t ?

Tuesday, April 29th 2014

how about “it don’t matter”?
I’ve heard it several times in the films or series.

Tuesday, April 29th 2014

    Dear Maggota, the correct way is “it doesn’t matter”.( I don’t, you don’t, it doesn’t, etc).

    Saturday, May 24th 2014

      I know that the correct form is “it doesn’t matter” but I’ve watched “True Detective” lately and in one episode main character says “It don’t matter”. It made me a little confused, that’s why I’m asking.

      Saturday, May 24th 2014

10/10 :D I feel excitied

Wednesday, May 14th 2014

Hi, Alex.First of all, Thanks for your great lessons. Is it correct to say “I’ve gone to Ohio three times”? Wouldn’t it be better to say “I’ve been to Ohio three times”?

Saturday, May 24th 2014

yay! Thank you very much, these lessons of British English ARE such a whale of time!

Wednesday, June 11th 2014

Great lesson Alex. Can I request you to compare “bother to do” and “bother doing”?

Tuesday, June 24th 2014

thanks Alex >

Tuesday, July 8th 2014

Hi Alex, I have a question:
If we do use the correct grammar, will all native speakers understand the correct meaning? or these 5 common mistakes are like slangs?

Friday, July 18th 2014

Many,many thanks!

Friday, July 25th 2014

Well.. Once I saw somewhere:
“There is a toilet, a bedroom, a kitchen and a living room” .. and I was wonder IF that was really correct to use “IS”, since we have a list of many things to count..
So.. What do you think, Mr. Alex?

Friday, July 25th 2014

Thank you MR. Alex

Tuesday, January 13th 2015

thanks for your examples… I used to use in negative “nothing” for example I don’t know nothing, now i learned!!!

Wednesday, January 14th 2015

referring to the no.4 mistake Alex mentioned.

‘ve gone to Ohio

I am learning Eng in Hong Kong, my teacher, who is non-native Eng speaker, told me if we gana say we have visited somewhere and now have backed to our initial place, we should say :

I have been to Ohio, rather than I have gone,

which means I have gone there and have still not backed, is he correct in this explanation?

Thursday, January 15th 2015

    Yes, he is right!

    Wednesday, February 11th 2015

hi Alex, i am still confused with ‘double negative’.
i couldn’t care less, which means i care much, or i don’t care at all, or i just care a little bit?
