    It made your day Evaldo, didn’t it?

    You did well on the quiz and on top of that you posted first.

    Good for you!!!

    Thursday, September 25th 2014

      Thanks for this great lesson Alex.

      A phrasal verb can have several meanings, that’s what make them a bit difficult to master, I think.

      For instance,

      “Yesterday I ran my car into a tree.”

      or

      “It’s not advisable to run into debt.”

      Regards

      Thursday, September 25th 2014

        Absolutely. Thanks for the support.

          no7kai – when learning English making sure you know your audience and when you try to be funny make sure you know what’s going on around the world whether it could be political, religion, etc. before making fun or judging others. This is not the time to make jokes of certain nationalities. WE ARE ALL HERE TO LEARN FREE ENGLISH. Use your English words wisely!

I think it’s a little bit confusing when we have to use infinitives or (to + infinitives) after verbs. Could you help us by giving some tricks you probably know? Either you could make a lesson about this, or not; we all appreciate your time teaching us.
All the best to you!

Thanks Alex. All your lessons are really interesting.

Friday, September 4th 2015

Dear Mr Alex.
It’s very happy of me to enjoy your lessons. I have a difficult matter in English grammar and I expect to receive an explanation from you.
I saw a sentence, in the book “15 Days For IELTS Writing”, as below:

The distribution of wildlife has also been affected, many European animals moving Northwards into Scandinavia.

In this sentence, if I use the pair “from…to” instead of “into” I will get the phrase “many European animals moving from Northwards to Scandinavia”. Is it also proper in grammar?

Thanks in advanced.

Tuesday, September 29th 2015

thanks Alex!
