I have a lot of beautiful girls,only one of whom i fall in love

Wednesday, February 27th 2013

Why do we need to use adjective clause and quantifier?

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Why do we need to use adjective clause and quantifier?

Thursday, February 28th 2013

    It’s an advanced grammar point, and you can hear native speakers using this construction in a variety of settings.

    Example:
    Check out this fact. Tim Burton has made over 20 movies, 8 of which have starred Johnny Depp.

    Thursday, February 28th 2013

I got 10 out of 10 .

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Thursday, February 28th 2013

I love your lessons. Would you please explain me why #7 two of whose problems are incorrect .
By the way, I feel a bit confused for giving single choice when verb allows -ving and to-v; noun has similar meaning in its c/u forms. What should I do?
In the clip : how to understand native speaker, there was a sample sentence, who do you( ya) like ?
What does it mean? Whom do you like ? Who do you look like ? or …
I am looking forward to hearing your excellent explanation . Thank you.

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Thursday, February 28th 2013

    “You’ve got a lot of terrific lessons,…”

    Don’t forget to use a plural if you say “a lot.”

    Thursday, February 28th 2013

      Hey Alex, I just wanted to clarify if the rule is always same, do you always have to put the plural form after ‘a lot of’? or is there any exception?

Thursday, February 28th 2013

    Right on! Thanks!

    Friday, March 1st 2013

Thanks a lot
God bless you all

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Very good lesson! Thanks Alex

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Dear Alex!!!
WHY some grammar books mention that (that)isn’t correct to be used with non-identifying adjective clauses?
thanks

Thursday, February 28th 2013

    Because it can’t be. :) Never push a “that” adjective clause after a comma.

    Example:
    I visited Times Square last year, which was also the year I got married. (OK)

    I visited Times Square last year, that was also the year I got married. (NOT OK)

    The only way the second sentence can work is if you make them into two separate sentences like this:

    I visited Times Square last year. That was also the year I got married.

    OR

    I visited Times Square last year; that was also the year I got married.

    Friday, March 1st 2013

      Thanks Alex
      I appreciate you and Ronnie answering our questions.

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Thanks a lot for this Wonderful oportunity, in which we can practice our English Grammar

Thursday, February 28th 2013

your grammar lesson is very good.

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Hey, Alex thanks for this lesson.
I think there’s a mistake on exercise #4: I think you’ve forgotten to use “were” after the word paitings:
(He’s a famous painter. One of his paintings “were” sold for over $50,000.)
Could you check this out for me?
Thanks

Thursday, February 28th 2013

    Hmm, I think you may be right, although you would use “was” instead of “were.” However, native speakers also use the verb “sold” without the verb to be.

    Example:

    I advertised my phone on eBay. It sold for $300.

    Friday, March 1st 2013

      No, I am sorry. He is not right. “was” in this sentence refers to “one”, which is singular and not to “paintings”. So the sentence used in the quiz is correct.

      Wednesday, March 6th 2013

Nice work

Thursday, February 28th 2013

I think, correct sentence is “one of his paintings WAS sold”. Am I right?

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Nice class thanks!

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Good class! I got aq 80%, I have a cold, I am tired, but the class was so entertainin! Thanks Alex

THANKS ALEX.
it’s a really helpful lesson

Friday, March 1st 2013

I like this lesson so much
You are so funny
aren’t you?
thanks

Friday, March 1st 2013

Alex,you are realy good teacher.thanks you very much.

Friday, March 1st 2013

Hello Alex, I have two questions:

One concerns “whom” because Americans use “who” as a subject and object, and if we want to speak American English, in this example you gave “both of whom”, can we use “both of who”, or in this specific case should we use “whom”?

The second question is: if we want to combine the two sentences using a comma, is this wrong when we say: “Cris has two sisters, both of them smoke”, or if we want to say it in that way, do we have to separate the sentences using a period? What about “and” — “Cris has two sisters and both of them smoke”, is this correct?

Friday, March 1st 2013

    Native English speakers definitely use “who” in place of “whom” because most don’t know or care about the difference between the two words. However, in the case of adjective clauses with quantifiers, you are more likely to hear “whom.” It just rolls off your tongue better.

    You need to separate the two sentences you wrote. You can either use a period of a semi-colon.

    Example:

    Chris has two sisters. Both of them smoke.
    Chris has two sisters; both of them smoke.

    With and, you used two independent clauses, so you should technically place a comma before “and.”

    Chris has two sisters, and both of them smoke.

    You’ll see native speakers who omit the comma, though.

    Friday, March 1st 2013

      Thanks.

Hi teacher! I want to ask about the grammar of the following sentence:”The last thing I do is feed the chikens”

Tuesday, March 5th 2013

    Dear Thoa56,
    In stead of our teacher I would like to tell you what I know. The sentence “The last thing I do is feed the chickens” is the same to “The last thing I do is to feed the chickens”.
    Sometimes an infinitive is used in the emphasized verb phrase after to do in the what-clause. Like this: What I want to do is (to) study English.

    Friday, March 8th 2013

thank you Alex! Got perfect score.. :)

Wednesday, March 6th 2013

Hi Alex!
Thanks a lot for your useful explanations, “which” (he, he …)has made me improving my English level day by day.
Greetings from Barcelona (Spain)

Wednesday, March 6th 2013

Alex, thank you for your useful lesson.
I got 10 correct in this quiz!
Thank you very much!

Thursday, March 7th 2013

Thanks, Alex! That was new although I’m majoring in English! Question, would you use that construction in everyday conversation? Is it kind of “too formal” to use? I just don’t wanna sound like a smart ass, if you know what I mean…One more thing, can you make a lesson on “predominant” vs “dominant”? I googled the whole thing, they’re supposed to be different and used in different contexts, but I just can’t find why, nor can I find the different connotations of either one of them. Thanks a million, Alex! Osama form Jordan

Thursday, March 7th 2013

    It’s definitely a formal structure, but it’s possible to use it in regular conversation without sounding like a smart ass. Just depends how natural you sound when you say it.

    Example:
    He’s made tons of movies, only one of which was decent.

    She’s written 3 books, all of which deal with the exact same questions and themes.

    Unfortunately, I can’t help you with the “dominant”/”predominant” question. It’s not something I’ve ever really done any in-depth research on. After a quick google search, I couldn’t find much either.

    Thursday, March 7th 2013

      Thanks, Alex!

      Thursday, March 7th 2013

thanks a lot :)

Hi Mr. Alex…
I downloaded your video teaching. It is very interesting.

I get a lot of things from you.
Can I ask . what does this sentence mean?
“Male and female loons tend to act cooperatively.”

what does the word “loon” mean?
can you put in the similar word.

Thank you a lot.

Hi Alex! Many thanks for this great lesson this topic has always been confusing to me but I still have a little question…what if the possession is expressed by an object like for instance “American theaters have just released the comedy … (whose?) success was predicted long before its shooting” ? Sorry for such a stupid and maybe grammatically incorrect example but I just need to know what noun should be used in this case. Thank you!
