Tuesday, August 7th 2012

gooood Job Mr Alex :) interesting

Tuesday, August 7th 2012

Hi, Alex. Very important lesson. Although it’s not a very difficult subject, you are right. when it comes to pronunciation, i have some difficulty in pronunciating the ordinal sixth. But i’ll follow your tip – i think that with some training, i’ll do very well. thank you so much

Tuesday, August 7th 2012

oops… sorry for the “training”. the right spelling, of course, is trainning.

Tuesday, August 7th 2012

    Hello Daniel the first spelling was the right one. We say “training” not “trainning”. Hope that helps!

    Saturday, May 25th 2013

Tuesday, August 7th 2012

Thank you!

Tuesday, August 7th 2012

Hi Alex! You are Nice Teacher. Thanks
I Scored 9 out of 10. But i have a question That Why this is wrong?
He’s Written over the twentieth books?
The correct one was-
He’s written over twenty books.
Please Anybody Reply?

Tuesday, August 7th 2012

    Because 20th is an ordinal number and in this sentence you have to use a cardinal number-20.

All the lessons from you are great! Thanks teacher. We know you’ve been doing a lot for our weaknesses in English.
Alex,could you possibly do any lessons on negative questions at your convenience?
I think it would be helpful in daily conversations. Can all modals be used to make negative questions,say, ‘May and Might’?
Again, thank you very much!

It was very basic and easy.
Next time, I want to know the difference in pronunciation between Today, Two days.
I intended to say ‘Today’, but almost people mistook it for ‘Two days’ or asked if the word I said is ‘Today’ or ‘Two days’.
I don’t know how to pronounce these words well.
If it’s possible please teach me..

thanks Alex. I love your quiz ^____^

Thursday, February 20th 2014

In reference with your first example ” I have 2 sisters.”, you didn’t mention whether it is grammatically acceptable. If you say so, it would be a contrary to one of the lessons presented on this site. Notwithstanding, it was corrected in the quiz with “two” is one of the choices.

I am a Mathematics teacher from the Philippines, an avid follower of this site to improve my pronunciation as I wanted to speak English as my second language.

Thanks to all of you as mankind’s English teacher for the non-native speakers. Keep it up!
