    Saturday, October 10th 2015

I have made a silly mistake, I got 90!

Friday, October 9th 2015

    Still excellent.

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

I like proverbs very much. In this lesson, I like “two wrongs don’t make a right” the best :) In other proverbs, I love “Practice makes perfect.” Thank you, Alex :)

Friday, October 9th 2015

    Not a problem! Thanks a lot for watching the video, and nice job with using the proverbs.

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Your lesson is very great, thanks! ^.^

Friday, October 9th 2015

    Thanks for the compliment, and thanks for studying with engVid!

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Action speak louder than words.
Laughter is the best medicine.
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
Better late then never.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

Thank you Alex :)

Friday, October 9th 2015

    You’re welcome. :) Just one mistake:

    Better late THAN never.

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

I really like this lesson.Actions speak louder than words.Thanks teacher.

Friday, October 9th 2015

    You’re very welcome. It was an enjoyable video to make, and I’m glad you liked it.

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Thank you for the class, It’s useful in conversation.

Friday, October 9th 2015

    For sure. I use “better late than never” a lot. I’m not sure what that says about my own organizational skills.

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Thanks for lesson, Alex! I like it. I will learn english on this site :D

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    Many students have done the same. Thanks for your support and for studying with us.

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Hi, Alex!
Thank you so much for this excellent lesson :)
I got 80!
But, Do you know when I will give up ? :)
“That will happens when pigs fly!”
cuz
“Where there’s a will there’s a way.”
We must do not waste time doing nothing because
“Doing nothing is doing ill.”
and be persistent, cuz
“Constant dripping wears away the stone.”
Always pay attention to every lesson’s details, cuz
“As you sow, so you shall reap.”
And to avoid to do the lessons in a hurry, because
“Haste makes waste.”
keep in company of the EngVid’s teachers, cuz
“Birds of a feather flock together.”

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    Wow. You’ve done your homework. Nice job, J. Martins!

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Hello, in the quiz part the proverb “actions speak louder than words” was replaced by “actions talk louder than words” which one is the corect ” speak or talk”

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    Actions speak is the correct form here.

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Thank you very much. I got 100 %. More interesting lessons.

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    You’re welcome, and great job on the quiz!

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Thank you Alex,Very useful lesson.Got 90/100.

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    Great job!

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

    Hi, Aditya, I am Apurba from West Bengal. I also want to improve my speaking skills and the only way to do that is speaking. So, let’s have video chat sometime on skype. I can’t speak Telegu, So we will have our conversation in English. It will surely improve our speaking skill. I will be waiting for your reply.

    Monday, October 12th 2015

      Hi Apurba. Thanks for your interest, but at this time I unfortunately do not have the time to do private meetings or Skype lessons.

      Monday, October 12th 2015

        Sorry sir, you are mistaken. Actually, I gave this proposal to my fellow countryman Aditya.I did not give you.

        Tuesday, October 13th 2015

          Oops. Sorry about that. :) I just re-read your message and realized it was not directed at me. I’m going to blame fatigue for this! It’s very late.

          Tuesday, October 13th 2015

          It’s okay sir. And please sir, DO not forget about the lesson on “Less vs Lesser”. I just can’t wait to watch it. I know you have so many lessons left to make. But make sure you don’t forget about that. Thank you. I will be waiting.

          Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Thanks Alex for this great lesson!

It’s always good to learn some words of wisdom. I imagine that the proverb “Two wrongs don’t make a right.” should be more known.

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    Absolutely. It’s very easy to want to get revenge when someone hurts you, but it doesn’t really make things better in many cases.

    Saturday, October 10th 2015

Hi, Alex!
Thank you so much for this excellent lesson :)
I got 80!
It’s useful in conversation.
Action speak louder than words.
Laughter is the best medicine.
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
Better late then never.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    That’s the idea. It’s hard to add expressions like these to your conversation naturally, but if you find a chance to use them, you should so you don’t forget them.

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

Thank you Alex. I’ve found this lesson very interesting. Always is very useful to learn a language through proverbs. I’d like to share a quotte of Mahatma Gandhi that says: « Hapiness is when what you think, you say,and you do are in harmony».

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    I love that quote, and I feel it’s correct.

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

I love proverbs. They teach you everything and it opposite:)
They are very useful to learn new words and they are the wisdom of the peoples.
My favourite is:”All goes around comes around”.

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    I believe that’s “What goes around, comes around.” :)

    Monday, October 12th 2015

      Yes Alex, when we are kind with people at the end people will be kind with us.
      Ciao

      Tuesday, October 13th 2015

This webpage really improving me and a huge thanks to all of you guys.
everybody now can learn English I see it on the horizon.
Regards!

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    Exactly. Thanks for watching and for studying with engVid, Jawad.

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

thank you very much about this nice lesson
I have got a full mark 10/10
thank you again :):)

Saturday, October 10th 2015

We have an Arabi proverb saying
Your soul is like a donkey if u rode it , it would carry but if it rode u , it would kill u
I want your comment about it Alex
Thank u in advance

Saturday, October 10th 2015

Thank Alex for such an interesting lesson on proverbs. Personally, I like this phrase: “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” It is similar to a Cambodian saying “Get into the lake following the river’s meanders; come alongside according to the jetty; enter the district according to the [law of the] country.”

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    Yep. That sounds like a similar idea, but I prefer the brevity of “When in Rome” more in this case!

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

your lesson is really great,thankyou

Saturday, October 10th 2015

Great lesson Alex! Thank you!

Saturday, October 10th 2015

    You’re welcome, Aleachi!

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

You are a great teacher, dear Alex! English is really a difficulty language, and you have a formidable capacity to give explanations clear. I’d like to ask for more lessons on phonetic/pronunciation (the quasi-chaotic part of English!).

Sunday, October 11th 2015

    PS. Hi Alex, I appreciate if you can correct my grammar mistakes in the message above.

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

      Just a couple of mistakes…

      “English is really a difficult language…”
      “…to give clear explanations” OR “to explain things clearly.”

      Hope this helps.

      Sunday, October 11th 2015

    This is definitely an area that I’d like to spend more time on in the future. Stay tuned.

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

Got 100. Thanks Alex!

Sunday, October 11th 2015

    You’re welcome. :)

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

Thank you Alex for the lesson. Proverb are always interesting.I think ,there are proverbs for every life situation in every culture ,but they sound differently depending their customs. I like Steve Job’s wise saying “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” Thank you.

Sunday, October 11th 2015

    That’s a good one too. He should have been a better father to his son, though!

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

Thank you Alex!!
Hope to see you soon!!

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

thanks Alex , I got 100 :) but I have a question can we use these proverbs here in USA or its juts in Canada ? thanks again

Sunday, October 11th 2015

    As far as I know, these proverbs cross all English-speaking boundaries. :) They are definitely used in both Canada and the US, as well as the UK and Australia.

    Wednesday, October 14th 2015

Thank you for the lessons Alex, I got 80

Sunday, October 11th 2015

    Nice job!

    Wednesday, October 14th 2015

Hi, Alex. I think there is analog in russia for this: “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.”
It sound like “You must not go with your monastic rules into foreign monastery” (В чужой монастырь со своим уставом не ходят)

Sunday, October 11th 2015

    Ha. I like that version of it too!

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

Hi Alex, also in Tunisia we say : eat as you want but wear as the others want.
Thank at all

Sunday, October 11th 2015

    I’m learning a lot of new proverbs in this comments section. Thanks for sharing!

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

Sir, this lesson was well worth watching. And, I have been eagerly waiting for the lesson about “Less vs Lesser” which you assured me to do. Thank you.

Sunday, October 11th 2015

    I have a list of about 15 lessons right now. It can take a long time to get to the video you want to see sometimes!

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

      I will absolutely wait for the lesson no matter how much time it takes. And I know you will make this video sooner or later. Thank you very much sir. I will be waiting.

      Monday, October 12th 2015

Alex,
you are a great teacher. I always enjoy your lessons!
One of my favorite proverbs in English is “you can’t have your cake and eat it, too”.

Sunday, October 11th 2015

    But I really want to. :(

    Sunday, October 11th 2015

    We can translate it with:”Non si può avere la botte piena e la moglie ubriaca:)))”

    Monday, October 12th 2015

Thanks for the lesson.
i have a request.
can you please explain (or give a lesson) or tell the difference between some of these forms and verbs: Become to get grow.
For istance the winter is getting colder,winter grows colder and so on.
Often the writers are using these.
Thanks

Monday, October 12th 2015

    Hmm, this might be a little too specific, but I’ll add it to my list of possible lessons. Thanks for the suggestion, Roywolf.

      keep up the good work !

      Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Hi Alex, thanks for your great lessons. I’m really enjoy them. :)

Monday, October 12th 2015

    “I really enjoy them” or “I’m really enjoying them” is the correct form here. :)

    And I’m glad to hear that!

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

      Thank you. :)

      Wednesday, October 14th 2015

Hi Alex, thanks for this lesson, is nice to see you take your time to answer. God bless you and keep up with the good lessons. Greetings from Dominican Republic.

Monday, October 12th 2015

    All the way from the Dominican! That’s amazing! I’ve only been to the Bahamas in that area.

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Learning proverbs can help us to understand the way that people in English speaking about cultures, life advices …and improve English vocabulary.
Thanks so much for these 50 common proverbs. All the best to you, Alex.

Monday, October 12th 2015

    Exactly. A language’s proverbs can reveal the values of a group of people. It’s very telling that so many proverbs reach across multiple languages – most people want to have and believe in similar values.

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Thank you so much.

Monday, October 12th 2015

    Not a problem.

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    Thanks! I try to speak at a normal speed in most of my lessons, but I also make sure that what I’m saying is clear.

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Thank you very much, Alex! It is really interesting lesson for me. I got 10 correct out of 10! Before this lesson I knew only “Better late than never”. This proverb sounds word for word in Russian.

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    Nice. That should make them easier to remember in English.

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

I got 10 correct out of 10 :D
100%, most of the time I do a quiz on your lessons and I get 100%,it makes me happy.IN this situation I know that Actions speak louder than words :)
thank you so much

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    Nice job! Maybe I should make them more challenging. Haha. Really though, language should be taught clearly, and not as something difficult.

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

thanks alex to help us with these proverbs. im getting better, thanks to you….

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    That’s great to hear! Keep it up!

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    Thank you so much for your overly kind words!

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

words can’t express my gratitude thanks a bunch dear teacher , the way you tech is remarkable
thanks a lot.

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Mr Alex,
How do we choose the two words ‘Which’ and ‘What’ for making a Wh-question?
for example:
what city was she in?
which city was she in?
which one is correct? And why?
Best regards.

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    I’ve always liked this explanation of what and which: (it’s not perfect, but it helps…for me, they can be used interchangeably in numerous contexts with little to no change in meaning)

    what identifies.
    which selects.

    When there are a large number of possibilities that can be the answer, you are usually asking “what”.
    When there are a number of possibilities, usually a smaller number, known to the participants in the conversation, and under consideration, you are usually asking the listener to choose, and therefore asking “which”.

    — What kind of pen do you usually use? (Identify)
    — Here’s a blue pen. Here’s a red pen. Which (pen) do you prefer? (Select)
    — What day is today? (Identify)
    — Tuesday or Friday? I’ve forgotten. Which day did you say we were going out for pizza? (Select)

    Insofar as we are sometimes indifferent to whether the situation emphasizes identification or selection more, there are many cases where the choice of “what” vs. “which” is likewise moot.

    — What planets are closer to the sun than the earth is? (Identify them.)
    — Which planets are closer to the sun than the earth is? (Select them – from your mental list of the planets)

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

      THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR EXPLANATION, I GOT IT NOW.

      Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Nice lesson

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    Thank you very much, Mohammed.

    Tuesday, October 13th 2015

Hi Alex! I live in Rome; so, when I’m at home…
Joke!!!

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    Haha. “When in…home?”

    Thursday, October 15th 2015

Tuesday, October 13th 2015

    No problem! Thank you for watching!

    Wednesday, October 14th 2015

Alex, thanks a lot, it was a great lesson

Wednesday, October 14th 2015

Mr Alex,
How do we use the two confusing words “speak” & “talk”?
For example:
I’d like to speak to you.
I’d like to talk to you.
Which one is correct? And why?
Beast regads

Wednesday, October 14th 2015

    This page gives a good explanation: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/grammar/british-grammar/speak-or-talk

    It’s about formality. Speak is more commonly used in formal situations. However, when you want to talk about someone’s ability in a language, you can only use “speak.” “He speaks French,” and NOT “He talks French.”

    Wednesday, October 14th 2015

      Thank you a lot, Alex.

      Thursday, October 15th 2015

Excellent! Thanks

Wednesday, October 14th 2015

    No problem. :)

    Friday, October 16th 2015

Sir, what is the difference between ‘kind’ & ‘type’? Please give some examples.

Wednesday, October 14th 2015

thank you for the nice video).Alex could you please make a video about phrasal verbs with the word break?

Wednesday, October 14th 2015

    Great idea! Break up, break out (of something), break in(to), break against, etc. I will definitely add this to my list. :)

    Wednesday, October 14th 2015

Thank you, Alex!

Wednesday, October 14th 2015

    You’re welcome. :)

    Thursday, October 15th 2015

I went to Rome by bycicle a couple of years ago (more than 750 kms from home, see picture on the left). Unfortunately, I couldn’t do as the Romans usually do, because a cyclist is in real danger over there….I was like “rara avis nigroque in terris simillima cygno”, “a rare bird in the lands, and very like a black swan”. Ciao.

Thursday, October 15th 2015

    Oooh, I like that one too.

    Thursday, October 15th 2015

Mr Alex,
What does John think of you?
What does Susan think of me?
What does the dog think of John?
What does John think of the film?
What on earth does “think of” mean?

Thursday, October 15th 2015

    It simply means “what is this person’s opinion” of someone or something.

    “What did you think of the movie?” (Did you like it? Dislike it? What’s your opinion?)

    “So, what do you think of Sherry?” (Do you like her? Dislike her? What’s your opinion of Sherry?)

    Thursday, October 15th 2015

      Thank you, teacher for your explanation.
      I got it thoroughly from now on.

      Thursday, October 15th 2015

      You’re the best! Your lessons are the best! May I ask one more question? Is there a difference between “think of” and “think about”?

      Sunday, November 8th 2015

Mr Alex,
I could use the catalog
myself
by myself?
Which one is correct? And why?
What are the situations we use them both?

Thursday, October 15th 2015

Thank you, Alex. Your lesson is great))

PS: Recently I had an assignment: I had to explain meaning of 10 English proverbs and your list of 50 was really helpful. So thank you again)))

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do” – this is the motto of conformism. Not good expression.

Thursday, December 10th 2015

    You can look at it that way for sure. It can also help you in some situations, though…especially if you’re traveling in a country and don’t want to upset or insult the local population.

    Thursday, January 7th 2016

Hello, Alex. I’m quite new here in this site.
I love English and really want to practice all the time. Unfortunately, I have no one to talk in English in my country. I have several things to ask. That’s why I leave a comment here because I see that you always give a reply to every comment. By the way, how can I describe this proverb to my students–Rome wasn’t built in a day?

Saturday, January 30th 2016
