      Alex. I am thinking your teach. You are very successful

      Monday, March 21st 2016

Hello Alex! Thank you for the awesome lesson. It is so interesting to learn new using of familiar grammar constructions.
You are the best! You are constantly helping people to improve their English.
I got 100 percent on the quiz due to your clear explanation.
I spent some time to find difference between first and fourth answers on question 5 :)
Best regards, Elena.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    Well done! I’m glad I’ve been able to help you and others. :) It makes my day to read and hear things like that.

    Saturday, March 19th 2016

      Your quick replay made my day too :) Thank you very much for responding and correcting my mistakes.

      Sunday, March 20th 2016

Hm, I think my third sentence in comment above is not correct. Maybe “It is so interesting to learn ABOUT new using of familiar grammar constructions” will be better?

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    “It is so interesting to learn new ways to use familiar grammar constructions.”

    Saturday, March 19th 2016

Je vous souhaite un aussi agréable apprentissage du français, que celui que j’ai à suivre vos leçons.

Great lesson, as always. 8/10 first time, thanks Alex!!! I will continue to practice.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    Nice job! Keep it up.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Thank You, Alex! It is exacly what I needed. Now it’s much more clearer about present continuos usage.

Thanks Alex great lesson

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    Thanks a lot, levi!

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

9/10… The last one was chosen incorrect, but I cannot catch the meaning. I chose a pre-arranged future plan and was sure it was right. I would use present continuous myself, I agree with that! But I cannot understand why is it a temporary action/behaviour?

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Hi Alex,, thank you so much for the lesson. Wow! I have got 9/10.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Hi Alex, thank you so much)) I’ve got 10)

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    Hello Maria,

    I would like to practice my English with you. I know the Russian language too. So I think it would be better for us to improve our English together. Here is my e-mail: seferova.r@gmail.com. If you’d like to communicate with me too, e-mail me.

    Best Regards,
    Roya.

    Saturday, March 26th 2016

      Hi
      you are right
      the people use the Present Simple tense always when
      the action is general
      *I am not fat.
      the action happens all the time, or habitually, in the past, present and future
      *The Moon goes round the Earth.
      the action is not only happening now
      *John drives a taxi.
      the statement is always true
      *I live in Iraq.

      Tuesday, April 5th 2016

thank you very much

Saturday, March 19th 2016

We also use the present continuous if we’re talking about things that happen all the time and with some frequency. For example, the train is leaving on Friday at 6pm.Or… The plane is flying at 9 am on Monday. I mean schedule of something.Alex, am I right? thanks for your reply

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    You can certainly say those things, but for schedules, it’s more common to use the present simple. “The train leaves at 6.” BUT! If you use the present continuous, it’s not a big deal. Every native speaker will understand your meaning, and they speak that way too.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

      Thank you very much!

      Wednesday, March 23rd 2016

        we can talk on e-mail for improve . What you think ?

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Good morning Alex, thank you very much for this interesting and very useful lesson.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Many thanks! but I have a question.
You say “n°4” a temporary action/behavior and “n°5” a repeated behavior !!!!!
Aren’t they opposite things? How to know which scenario is it ?

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Thank you Alex . To say honestly, just this topic was interested me recently. The lesson is short in terms of time ,but is wide in terms of using . I am always surprising about engvid lessons. They are always interesting. Thank you very much.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    Thanks for checking it out! It can be tough, but I wanted to give the essential information here.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

thanks alex very importan this

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Hi,Alex!
I am learning a lot with Engvid.
Today I solved doubts about present continuous.
I am very happy.
Thank you for this excelent job.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    That’s great! I’m glad I was able to help you out. Thanks for clicking.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Great lesson! Thank you (:

Saturday, March 19th 2016

This is awesome, incredibly great 😊

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Good lesson Alex. I’ve made my mistake here.
He’s always helping others. Because a word ‘Always’ confused me very. Why not to say ‘He always helps others’?
Thank you.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    You can say that as well. Present simple is used for habits, but you can add the emphasis of repetition by using the present continuous as well.

    “He always helps others.” (correct)
    “He’s always helping other.” (also correct with more focus on him repeating the action)

    I hope this helps! Good question.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Hi Alex! Thanks for a useful lesson! Please, help me to find out why I answered the last question incorrect??? I thought , I was sure it was a pre-arranged future plat, but it wasn’t. I still have the question… WHY?

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    “He usually stays home on Thursday nights…” This is a regular behavior. “…but tonight, he’s going out…” This is a temporary action/behavior.

    Saturday, March 19th 2016

      You got it. Basically, “He usually does this…but TONIGHT…he’s DOING this.”

      In the end, the answer is not as important as just understanding that you CAN use the present continuous in this scenario. :)

      Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Thanks, Alex. This is a very useful lesson.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Thanks, Alex. Very helpful.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Hey, teacher Alex! I´ve just watched your very important lesson, but I´m a little confused about the third rule, because that´s exactly what I was NOT told: Is it ok if I either say “I´m going to visit Iceland in December” or “I´m visiting Iceland in December”, for example? Is it gramatically right? If it is, please let me know. Take care.

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    Hi
    I think both are correct.
    Let’s go waiting for Alex’s answer.
    Good question Emanoel.

    Sunday, March 20th 2016

    Both are correct. Grammar books and teachers might try to tell you that the continuous is wrong here, but try to convince any native English speaker that it’s wrong and they’ll just give you a funny look. :)

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

      I see. Thanks a lot for the heads-up. ;)

      Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Hi Alex, Thanks for the great lesson !

We are always waiting for your lessons, they are very interesting. Thank you, Alex!

Saturday, March 19th 2016

Only the other day, due to a sentence that I was reading, in a textbook, did I come to realize that I didn’t have a clue as to what made up a sentence. Yes, the sentence was very complicated, but I’m sure it would have been very easily understood by someone with the slightest of a grammar background. I’m hoping that your grammar programs will change the English Game for me because at this point I don’t think I’m even on the Ballfield. Thanks, FR

Saturday, March 19th 2016

    I’m happy to help you out. Thanks for checking us out!

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Hello teacher Alex, i still cant understand the last question , do you have another example ?By the way your videos are great, Thank you so much .

Sunday, March 20th 2016

Hi Alex . Thank you so much , you are the best .
I have learned a lot of your great videos
may I ask if you can make videos like this video , talking about another grammar and how many ways to use them ? :)
Thanks again ^_^

Sunday, March 20th 2016

    For sure. :) We have a lot of grammar videos on the website already, but I’m sure there are students who want to know EVERY way to use a grammar tense.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Sorry I meant if you can talk about another tenses in english and how many ways to use them ? :D

Sunday, March 20th 2016

the last case in the quiz was quite tricky for me : ) thanks for the lesson Alex !

Sunday, March 20th 2016

What is the difference between preposition inside and into?

Sunday, March 20th 2016

    “Inside” is actually an adverb like “here” or “there.” “Into” is a preposition.

    “I’m inside the classroom.” (I am in the classroom)
    “I’m walking into the classroom.” (I am walking through the door)

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Thank you :)

Sunday, March 20th 2016

Thanks, I got 90%.

Sunday, March 20th 2016

Thanks sir for this great lesson! .In fact i would like to ask you a question. So my question is what’s the meaning of these idioms”get off Your high horse and pull your neck back in ” and”High Horse Descent Required “? I hope your reply.

Sunday, March 20th 2016

    “Get off your high horse” means to become humble and stop acting superior to other people.

    “Pre-marital sex is evil and wrong!”
    “Oh please, get off your high horse.”

    I’ve never heard of the other idiom.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

      Thank you so much!

      Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Sunday, March 20th 2016

    Nice job! Keep it up and thanks for studying with EngVid.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Hello, Alex!
I thing tha the last question was a little confused.
“He usually stays home on Thursday nights, but tonight, he’s going out with friends.”
What kind of usage is this?
an action happening right now
a temporary action/behavior
a pre-arranged future plan

I thoght that it was a pre-arranged future plan, but it wasn’t. :(

Sunday, March 20th 2016

    It’s a matter of interpretation. It sounds like quite a few students are having problems with this one. It’s a temporary action because he USUALLY stays at home, but TONIGHT he’s changing his behaviour temporarily and going out. It could still be a future plan, though, so I see where students can become confused.

    As long as you know you can use the present continuous in this scenario, that’s really the most important thing.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Thank You, Alex for the good lesson!

Sunday, March 20th 2016

Hi Alex,I think #1 question is not correct answer because of adverb of frequency (always),it should be in present simple tense.He’s always helps others,sounds more correctly,doesn’t it?

Sunday, March 20th 2016

    “He always helps others” is correct because you can absolutely use the present simple to talk about habits or regular behaviours, but it’s also possible to use the continuous to emphasize the repetition of the action.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Thanks ,alot 10 out of 10

Sunday, March 20th 2016

hello mr Alex please help me in english
I only speak a little english
I would like to learn

Sunday, March 20th 2016

    Thank you Alex for this great lesson

    Sunday, March 20th 2016

    You’re in the right place. :) Keep studying and asking questions!

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

ok nicr thanks but i have a question

what is the difference between using “i am always complaining ”
and the simple present “i always complain”

Sunday, March 20th 2016

Hi Alex! Thank you for this very important grammar lesson. I feel like my English gave a giant leap.

So, when we talk about an action that will happen in a distant future, we use WILL? Like, “I’m going to the United States in December.” In this case, I use “I will go to the United States…” or “I will be going to the United States…” Right? :D

See you! :)

Sunday, March 20th 2016

    In december is adverb of time,showing future,december has not come yet and you prearrange to go any way,air ticket already bought,filled out vacation form with your boss,I thought you should use present progressive,I am going to the USA In december.but if you say(I will be going to theUSA) you need to add the correct adverb of time such as(at this time next week.this is just a suggestion.

    Sunday, March 20th 2016

    If it’s planned, you should just stick with “I’m going to the United States” or “I’m going to the United States.” A lot of English students OVERUSE “will” and think it’s for every future situation. It doesn’t really work in this context. I mean, you could say the following…

    “I’ll go to the States if you come with me.” (1st conditional)
    “I’ll probably/maybe/likely go to the States.” (possibility with probably/maybe/likely)
    “We’ll go to the States and then we’ll think about what we want to do afterwards.” (talking about a future sequence of events/planned sequence of events)

    I hope this helps a bit. English is hard as hell when it comes to this level of detail.

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

      Yeah, it can be a little tricky. When you think you get it, something comes to complicate it. But it got clearer with your explanation. Thanks, Alex!

      Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Great lesson as always!

Sunday, March 20th 2016

you’re such a smart teacher.

Sunday, March 20th 2016

Monday, March 21st 2016

You can’t stop the future, that’s why I’m trying to improve my English.
In both ways: in this period of my life and also as a pre-arranged future plan.
Thank you Alex, see you soon.

Hi Alex, thanks for teaching us these new 5 ways of using the present continuos.

Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

Alex, thanks a bunch! … You are one of my favourite teachers on the net ! … I really love your accent a lot ! … A question about this topic:

I know that Future with BE GOING TO is almost a 100 % certain action in the future. With WILL, the future refers that the action probably occurs, but I am not sure about it.

Am I right in my interpretation?

However, if I say:

* I am going to travel to New York, next week.
* I will travel to New York, next week.

In this case, Is there any difference between those sentences?

Best wishes from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, South America! *

¡ SALUDROS FRATERNOS !

Thanks in advance!

Tuesday, March 22nd 2016

    * ¡ SALUDOS FRATERNOS ! … Hehehehe I CAN’T BELEIVE IT : A spelling mistake in my own native language ! … I’m looking forward to having your answer ! ### G’day, dear teacher!

Could you help me? Sometimes, when I read texts I see these words: The Earth, the earth and Earth. I understand that when we use this word Earth we mean planet, but why people sometimes use – The Earth. Maybe is it mistake or maybe I’m wrong. Could you explain me how to use it correctly?

Monday, April 4th 2016

Hi! It was very easy to understand this lesson. The use of the ‘Present Continuous’ in English is not different from use of this tense in my own language.

Monday, April 4th 2016

Tank you Alex i am ESL student it is for me help full .

Tuesday, April 5th 2016

Tuesday, April 5th 2016

Thursday, April 7th 2016

Hi Alex
I have one question
why in this sentences
we are going to New York tomorrow
you didnt used will ?

Thursday, April 7th 2016

thanks Alix,
i have one question about your video.
during this video you used ” in this moment” and “at this moment”
could you please explain what’s the difference between these two formula.
again, thanks a lot

Thursday, April 7th 2016

Your lesson is always useful. Thank you, Alex.
Let me ask a question.
For example,
What’s the difference between “My mom is visiting me this weekend.” and “my mom is going to visit me this weekend.”?

Thursday, April 7th 2016

Alex,sir,it’s very good. But i am fetching problems to mean a sentence.What can i do?

Friday, April 8th 2016

Hello, I need to clear my doubts. One rule says: both “I feel hurt ” and I am feeling hurt ” are correct. Another says: feel is a non-continuous verb and only can be used in continuous by the way indicated : “He is feeling a baby’s forehead” . where “is feeling” means-touch. SO, does it mean that feel can be used in continuous by two ways? Where the first is talking about physical pain and the second is “touch” meaning. Is conclusion correct? Thanks in advance :)

Saturday, April 9th 2016

    hii how are you

    Thursday, April 14th 2016

    Hi,
    I’ve also heard this rule about “state verbs”.
    Engvid’s search engine brings us a lesson on it : http://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-stative-verbs/
    In the comments trainer Ronnie explains that “I am feeling” is an exception.
    Funny thing, same question came to me with Alex’s example : “Why are you being so selfish?”
    Pretty sure I’ve also heard that some verbs can be both stative or active. Alex could also said
    “Why are you acting so selfish?”
    Continuous tense here emphases something temporaly.

    Hope it helps.

Tuesday, April 12th 2016

Hey Alex ! Thank you for the lesson. It was a piece of cake and really intersting. I would like,of course if it is possible, to give us a lesson concerning the present perfect especially its colloquial usage. Because I have talked to many native speakers then I found out that they dont use it that as much as the past simple even though, according to “English standard”, they should use it instead of the past simple

Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Why the last one is not an action happenning right now?

Wednesday, April 13th 2016

Oh,im just correct 9/10
