    Sunday, November 18th 2012

Why can’t it be “lots” in third question?
I think both are correct…
The school has a lot of computers.
or
The school has lots of computers.

Thursday, November 8th 2012

    Hi Ridhi,

    You can say that the school has lots of computers. In the quiz though, there is no option for “lots of”. There is an option for “lots”, but this is incorrect because it is missing the “of”.

    Sunday, November 18th 2012

    Hi! you’re right, but the option “lots” hasn’t “of “. It is needed before noun. Remember? Take a second look!

    Sunday, November 18th 2012

thanks alot

Thursday, November 8th 2012

thks emma

Thursday, November 8th 2012

Was the Halloween lesson deleted? The lesson which taught by Jon.

Thursday, November 8th 2012

Great lesson Emma!

Thursday, November 8th 2012

I have a few questions:

1. Is “lots” plural form of “a lot”?
2. Can we use “whole lots” instead of “a whole lot”?
3. Emma, why do you pronounce the word “often” with the “t” sound? Is this a normal way to pronounce it, or just a Canadian issue, or maybe only Americans pronounce this word without “t”?

Thursday, November 8th 2012

    Pronouncing t in “often” surprised me too. I remember my English teacher said that the t is silent in the word often. But now I read this article (http://www.dailywritingtips.com/how-do-you-pronounce-often/), at the end there is a poll and 51.05% of the voters pronounce the t in “often”. Funny thing :)

    Thursday, November 8th 2012

      “until some time in the 15th century when a consonant simplification occurred in some words that had two or more consonants in a row. It was at this time that speakers stopped pronouncing…”

      — Awesome xD — maybe when I have problems with some letters in a word, I just stop pronounce them for a letter simplification xD — I’m still laughing. xD

      Saturday, November 10th 2012

    Hi Morfik,

    You’ve asked many excellent questions.

    1) Both “a lot” and “lots” are used with plural count nouns (e.g. I have a lot of friends, I have lots of friends) and non-count nouns (e.g. I have a lot of milk, I have lots of milk). They mean the same thing. The only difference is that “a lot” is more formal than “lots”.

    2) You cannot use “whole lots” or “a whole lots”. The only correct form of this expression is “a whole lot of”.

    3) Some people pronounce the t in “often” while others do not pronounce it. You can choose either way. Both are acceptable. There are many forum threads on the pronunciation of “often”. Some of them get quite heated. I believe that in the United States, the silent t pronunciation is more common.

    Sunday, November 18th 2012

      Thanks!

      Sunday, November 18th 2012

      Hi Emma!

Thursday, November 8th 2012

I leaned a lot in your lecture.

Thursday, November 8th 2012

Emma, please reply to this question, I need the answer ASAP. Is it correct to say: I have lived here for 21 year VS I have lived here for 21 years. As you could notice, it’s about the noun YEAR after number 21. Does it take singular or plural form. Thank you immensely.

Thursday, November 8th 2012

    “I have lived here for 1 year.”
    “I have lived here for 2 years.”

    “I have lived here for 21 years.” xD

Thursday, November 8th 2012

Thanks, I have a lot of fun in learning English.

Thursday, November 8th 2012

i like grammer but all of told speed your try to slowly and means also clear told Please….
i leaorn english here

Thursday, November 8th 2012

Thanks for the lesson ☻ .
I have a question, would u answer me?
In ur example u used teach+ing after “to” (… to teaching English), Isn’t that after the word to the verb becomes finite?? Plz clarify this to me ☺
And I need a lesson about the words” may, might” when do I use them in a sentence!! What’s the difference between I may .. I might .. ? ☺☻

Friday, November 9th 2012

    You can use “to” in many ways. In this case “to” means “for”. — I think so. xD

    So, I could rewrite the sentence to: “I allot most of my time for teaching English.” — I’m not sure if “for” is good here.

    Maybe this scene from matrix will clarify this issue. :)

    Get some rest.
    You’re going to need it.
    For what?
    Your training.

    What is the difference between “may” and “might”? If you have two sentences: “It may happen.” and “It might happen.” — The first one is more likely to happen.

    Saturday, November 10th 2012

    Hi Rozanna,

    I think you’ve asked an excellent question. In this case, “to” is a preposition and “teaching English” acts like a noun, not a verb. Sometimes gerunds can be nouns, for example, “Teaching English is fun”. Here are some more examples of the preposition “to”, followed by a gerund acting as a noun:

    I look forward to meeting you.
    I devoted some time to practicing French.
    John really took to swimming.

    Sunday, November 18th 2012

      Hi Emma. This is a big issue for me as well. I´ve never understood this “to + ing verb form” and it really bugs me A LOT. I think a lesson about it could be very usefull.

      Saturday, March 30th 2013

Hello Mam, Am I right if I say ”I have to do a lot of work”. plz help me by giving me reply
thanks.

Friday, November 9th 2012

    I would rewrite it to: “I have a lot of work to do.”, but I think that your sentence is good too.

    Saturday, November 10th 2012

      Both are fine! Thank you Morfik for all of your clear answers and for taking the time to help others! It is much appreciated.

      Sunday, November 18th 2012

Thank you Emma

its very useful

Friday, November 9th 2012

>often<
it's pronoun as offen or often.

Friday, November 9th 2012

    Both ways are acceptable. I think in the United States, it is more common to hear it pronounced without the t.

    Sunday, November 18th 2012

10/10 :)
thank you Emma…
thanks a lot my dear teacher…..

Friday, November 9th 2012

Friday, November 9th 2012

Emma… If I say I love you a lot it means often?

Friday, November 9th 2012

    No, it means “I love you very much”.

    Friday, November 9th 2012

you’re still good….

Friday, November 9th 2012

thank you Master! :))

Friday, November 9th 2012

Friday, November 9th 2012

Emma you admirable teacher
thank a lot
I just have some questions
this word ^ an awful lot ^
can I use it instead of ^a whole lot^ or it wrong to be used ^
also^^a lot of^^ can it be used with years or days ??

Friday, November 9th 2012

    Thank you Hisham for your question!

    “An awful lot” is very similar to “a whole lot”. They both are used to add emphasis. However, “an awful lot” is used more often to show something is negative. Here are some examples:

    1) You have an awful lot of work to do.
    2) You were sick an awful lot this year.
    3) Kyung Hyun has an awful lot of stress these days.

    In terms of your second questions, you can use “a lot” with days and years. Here are some examples:

    1) A lot of days went by.
    2) It took a lot of years for Cindy to get out of jail.
    3) She’s taken a lot of Mondays off work.

    Sunday, November 18th 2012

Friday, November 9th 2012

    Correct! :)

    Sunday, November 18th 2012

      again thanks a lot for replying my comment.

      Sunday, November 18th 2012

Thanks! Then if I say she loves a lot it means that she loves often? Correct? I have one more question..if I say he likes eating fruits a lot….it means he likes eating fruits often?

Friday, November 9th 2012

    Hi Tmozzer,

    “She loves a lot” sounds strange. What does she love a lot? Does she love art a lot? Does she love history a lot? Does she love her family a lot? “Love” is a verb which is used with an object.

    I think if you want to add emphasis for like and love, it is better to use “really” instead of “a lot”. Here are some examples:

    1) She really loves art.
    2) She really loves history.
    3) She really loves her family.

    Instead of saying he likes eating fruits a lot, it sounds better to say “He really likes eating fruits”. This emphasizes how much he enjoys eating fruit. Although you might hear “a lot” used to add emphasis, “really” sounds better and is much more common.

    “A lot” can also mean often. “I eat fruit a lot” clearly means often. “I like eating fruit a lot” is not as clear, and so you may need to use other sentences to figure out if it means often or if it’s there for emphasis.

    Sunday, November 18th 2012

      so what is the big different between understanding these

      Thursday, October 23rd 2014

Hi Emma, I only want to say you about, what happen with allot?

You got 10 correct out of 10.

Monday, November 19th 2012

Teacher-U are the best teacher I have ever had… I can’t express all my feelings as my vocab is not strong..I watch your lessons ,hear your voice and sees your face whenever I turn my laptop on..I not only love your language but your country toooo.
Sometimes, I think it would have been great if I had been born in your country and grown up there….. But , I have a hidden dream of visiting your oneday ….
But, I really can’t handle your language.It’s too hard to learn as I think that one should start learning English at the age of two or three.I’m now 23+,completed my school education.I can’t go back in the past nor can I grow up again.I have been a member of this educational as well as helpful website for more than one and half years,learned a lot but still can’t make a single appropriate sentence..I don’t know whatever I have written in this short comment is correct or not.You may find my comment hard to make out.I wanna start everything from the scratch.I need your suggestion.

Monday, November 19th 2012

Saturday, February 9th 2013

Thank you a lot. Lots of what you said was allotted directly to my brain. My attention was allotted to what was being said, and sometimes it was diverted to what was being revealed. Again lots of thank.

Sunday, February 10th 2013

Thanks for your lessons. I just have one comment: I think it is necessary to emphasize the fact that “alot” is totally wrong. Isn’t it?

Sunday, February 10th 2013

Dear Emma, Thanks a lot for your lesson.
I have two questions regarding to your reply to Hisham’s question.
you have mentioned this example:
2) You were sick an awful lot this year.
IS it correct to say “an awful lot of this year” instead of “an awful lot this year”?

My second question is about the following sentence:

2) It took a lot of years for Cindy to get out of jail.
Is it correct to say ” It took a lot of years for Cindy to getting out of jail”?
Is “to” a preposition here like in the sentence “John really took to swimming.”?

Monday, February 11th 2013

Thank you.

Thank you Emma. Your lesson is very helpful, but I noticed something in your example no. 2 “I allot most of my time to teaching English.” to is infinitive and teaching is a gerund right? Is it alright to use “to teaching”? Thank you…

Thank you in advance :)

Tuesday, July 23rd 2013

Thanks, dear Emma!
My score is 10/10, but two questions still bother me.
1. Whole Lotta Love by Ben Harper used to have lots of admirers (as for me, at first I heard its remake by Led Zeppelin – WOW!!!). Is “whole lotta” without an article acceptable informal version of “a whole lot of” or is it a literary technique to create an image of illiterate hippie?
2. Thanks a lot. Why not “A lot of thanks”?
Thanks again.

Tuesday, July 30th 2013

    P.S. Sorry, LZ version was original, and Ben Harper’s was remake, of course. But, no matter, that’s not the item to study here.

    Tuesday, July 30th 2013

Thank You Emma. Very good lesson. I’ve got 10 correct:-)

Hi Emma ! Very useful lesson

Could U explain grammar(syntax) difference
and are they correct?

1.A lot of thanks(uncount noun)

2.Thank(verb) U a lot.
is the verb “thank” feeling or action ;-) ?
Anyway
Thank U very much. sounds more naturally

3.thanks(?) a lot (shortening of A lot of thanks with rearrange of words)?
4.thank(?) a lot (shortening of Thank U a lot)?

(?) – noun or verb

Thank U very much for answer !
