    Tuesday, May 17th 2016

awesome lesson

Tuesday, May 17th 2016

    Thanks a lot!

    Tuesday, May 17th 2016

Alex, to be sure, for the question 10, both of these expressions should be correct?
“I am having a great time..” &
” I have a great time..” as question 5
“my neighbors are having a new car” &
“my neighbors have a new car”

two expressions are correct?

Thanks a lot!

Tuesday, May 17th 2016

    Nope! :)

    Tuesday, May 17th 2016

    You must use “I’m having a great time” because it’s at the moment of speaking, and you must say “My neighbours have a new car” because it’s possessive. You can’t use the continuous tense for possessive.

    Tuesday, May 17th 2016

      Ok Alex! Thanks!!

      Tuesday, May 17th 2016

        Any time! I hope I was able to clearly answer your question.

        Tuesday, May 17th 2016

          at the perfection! ;)

    Tuesday, May 17th 2016

      Alex, would you be so kind to explain me if I can say “bless you” when someone sneezes or there are other words I need to use in this situation? And what should I answer for this wish?

      Thursday, May 19th 2016

        Yes, you’re correct. You can also say “God bless you,” but just “bless you” is the most common. If someone says this to you, just say “Thank you” or “Thanks.”

        Saturday, May 21st 2016

          Thanks)

Hello Alex! Thank you very much for the lesson. Could you please,make another video as an answer for my question: How can I differ the verbs to get; to obtain;to gain;to acquire? And in which cases it is better to use them? Thank you.

Tuesday, May 17th 2016

    That would take some research on my part, but “get” works as a synonym for all of the other words.

    Wednesday, May 18th 2016

Hi Alex! I have a question:

“I have a bath.” Is it correct ?
Thank you!

    No problem! Thanks for checking out my video.

    Wednesday, May 18th 2016

      that was very brave of you what’s meaning of this sentence??? how can i understand ??? any simple idie to recognise

      Thursday, May 19th 2016

        “That was very brave of you” means “You were very brave” or “Your act was very brave.”

        Example:
        You jump into the middle of the street to save a child from getting hit by a car.

        A stranger might say, “That was very brave of you!”

        It’s like saying “That was very brave!” or “You were very brave!”

        Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Nice job! Now practice using the expressions in conversation.

Wednesday, May 18th 2016

very useful video lesson, thank u :)

Mr. Alex you’re probably the best teacher all over the world from my point of view.

Thanks Alex, for a such good lesson! I “had” 100

Wednesday, May 18th 2016

    Nice job! You can say “I have 100,” but it’s more common to say “I got 100” in this context. :)

    Tuesday, May 24th 2016

    Tuesday, May 24th 2016

Hey Alex, you are great! Thanks! My english is bad but i understand the video and Im so happy I took the test 8. i hope to improve more and more! T Hey Ale! I want to do a interchange that year, have you some indication? Sorry my bad english!hank so much! Success!

Thursday, May 19th 2016

    Nice job! I’m glad you found the video useful. What interchange are you talking about?

    Tuesday, May 24th 2016

Thanks Alex. Great lesson. But what about the expression “to have a (some) rest”? What do you think of it? Should we say “to take a (some) rest instead of saying, you know, “to have a rest” or “to get a rest”. I always get confused about this expression. Thanks again.

Thursday, May 19th 2016

    I’ve said both, “I need to have a rest” and “I need to take a rest.” Same with “a nap.” You should feel confident using both.

    Tuesday, May 24th 2016

Hi, Alex. Thanks for the lesson. You speak pretty clear and I understant you very well. Thanks again! :)

Thursday, May 19th 2016

She _________ problem with her boyfriend.

why “is having ” right
and “has” wrong

Friday, May 20th 2016

    “She is having problems with her boyfriend” means she is currently experiencing problems with him. This means that normally she does not have any problems.

    “She has problems with her boyfriend” is also possible, but is much more general and means something much more specific. Like “I have some problems with him. For one, I hate how he eats!”

    “She’s having problems” is much more common.

Sunday, May 22nd 2016

    Absolutely.

    “I’m having a look at my taxes, and I don’t like what I see.”

Hello Alex,

I am not sure if I heard well but Can I say “have a listen”.

Monday, May 23rd 2016

    Sure! If you want someone to listen to a song on your phone, you can definitely say, “Here. Have a listen.”

    Tuesday, May 24th 2016

This website is a gem. Thank you to all the instructors here!

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

    I’m sure I speak for all of us when I say it’s our pleasure. Thank you for studying with EngVid.

I have a great progress in my english thanks to you Alex.Keep going giving us so understanadable lessons!

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

    I will do my best!

    Wednesday, May 25th 2016

Hi alex
can I say I have as I want or I need ?

Tuesday, May 24th 2016

    “I have” is much different than “I need” and “I want.” “Have” is most often used for possession, while “need” and “want” are used for desire.

    “I have a winter hat.” (I have it!)
    “I need a winter hat.” (I don’t have it, but I need it!)

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

A very helpful lesson for beginner like me. Thanks Alex:)

Hello Teacher,
Is that enough?
No, I’d like half as much again, please.
What does this phrase (half as much again) mean here?
Give me an example in number.

Wednesday, May 25th 2016

    It’s difficult to answer this question without more context. The word “again” makes it sound strange. Maybe you’re trying to say something like “I’d like more, but just half as much.” (if you’re asking for another helping of food, for example)

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

      Hello teacher,
      Yes, I mean “I’d like more”, for example:
      Somebody gave me $10, so he said “Is that enough?”
      I replied “No, I’d like half as much again, please.”
      How much should he give me, then?
      150% of $10?
      $15 more + $10 (the original amount)= $25 that I need from the person, is that correct?
      half a much again!!!

      Wednesday, June 1st 2016

i like your method of teaching its very good for me i understand your conversation so you are my best teacher and freind.thnx alot

Wednesday, May 25th 2016

    Thanks for watching, alimd! I really appreciate your support and your feedback. Keep studying!

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Thank you Alex

Thursday, May 26th 2016

    My pleasure!

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

hi alex as you know in america and canada bad means very good . how such a thing is possible? and when the person uses bad how can we find out is he/she refer to exellent or bad ?

Thursday, May 26th 2016

    Those are really good questions!

    “Bad” has a positive connotation (meaning) when used as a slang word. This is common in English slang – “sick”, “ill”, and “wicked” also mean “good” or “cool” when used as slang. You have to figure out what is meant based on context. Is it a formal setting like work or school, or casual, like playing videogames with friends? Is the speaker disappointed or impressed?

    A note: “bad” can have a slightly different meaning when used casually or as slang. It can mean bad (as in dangerous/tough) but in a “cool” way. For example, Ludacris’ song “My Chick Bad” or the “bad boy” archetype.

    Friday, May 27th 2016

      thanks lot mr or mrs unknown. Ive got all i needed on this subject.do you mind if i ask your gender?

      Saturday, May 28th 2016

hi alex i wanna know something about best way to speak politely i need your help please, beacause in the near futur im gonna having an an interview with germany immigration office pleas please help me because i cannot cancern to speak, im waitng for your answear bye

Thursday, May 26th 2016

    Without more context, it’s hard to give you a complete answer, but I’ll try. Polite expressions you should memorize…

    Nice to meet you.
    Thank you.
    Please.
    I would like…
    Could I…?
    Could you…?
    Could we…?
    Would it be possible to…?
    I think that…

    I hope this helps at least a little bit.

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Yeah! It’s short, useful and excellent lesson. Keep it up!
I would like to ask for something different. Namely, do you know how to contact with developers of this website?
1) It would be great if finished lessons (with filled up quizes) in ‘All lessons’ section would be marked by special color or sign.
2) Are you planning to release engvid android app?

Greetings from Poland!
(and sorry for possible mistakes)

Thursday, May 26th 2016

    I have forwarded your message to the site designer. No promises. :)

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Thank you so much teacher Alex, your explanations are very clear. I had a good time learning English with you today.

Friday, May 27th 2016

    That’s fantastic to read. Thanks for studying with EngVid, and good luck with your English! :)

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Sir, You were about to make a video about the difference between Less and Lesser. I really have been waiting for that. I hope you remember Alex.

Friday, May 27th 2016

    “Less” (adverb) refers to quantity, “lesser” (adjective) refers to quality.

    I would like less than that, please.
    This is a lesser movie than his first one.

    Would you like more or less?
    He deserves a lesser punishment.

    Very few people actually use “lesser” in conversation, though. It’s not a common word.

    This information is already freely available on the internet. :)

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

thanks Alex it was pretty interesting and i have learned a various meanings to use have in different situations, the way and your account give more motivation to someone like me i hope that you thinking to do a papier quiz as Supplementary help that’s will be great for learners thanks

Saturday, May 28th 2016

    You can check out our Resources section if you’d like some paper material. Otherwise, we just have the online quizzes after each lesson.

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Respected Sir! I’m a new English learner student. I’m learning English through your channel.
Your last lesson was about ‘Have Expressions’
I know, “Have” is a main verb and an auxiliary verb.
for example main verb: eat, eats, ate, eaten, eating
have, has, had, had, having
1. When people use in a sentence ‘have had’
I can understand = 1st have is an auxiliary verb(Present Perfect) & 2nd had is main verb(as 3rd form)
2. When people use in a sentence ‘had had’
I can also understand = 1st had is an auxiliary verb(Past Perfect) & 2nd had is main verb(as 3rd form)
3. When people use in a sentence ‘will have had’
I can also understand = 1st will have is an auxiliary verb(Future Perfect) & 2nd had is main verb(as 3rd form)
4. I know ‘Had’ can use in any tense as 3rd form(main verb). for example: could have had, should have had, would have had etc.

But the problem is, when people use in a sentence
=’auxiliary verb + had(as main verb 3rd form) + 3rd form’ for example
= will have + had + eaten, would have + had + done, could have + had + gone etc. I don’t understand this?

when it use in a sentence ‘have have’ / ‘has have’ / ‘have has’
I don’t understand this?

Please Sir, I’m waiting for your lesson desperately about these 2 questions.

Saturday, May 28th 2016

    “But the problem is, when people use in a sentence
    =’auxiliary verb + had(as main verb 3rd form) + 3rd form’ for example
    = will have + had + eaten, would have + had + done, could have + had + gone etc. I don’t understand this?
    when it use in a sentence ‘have have’ / ‘has have’ / ‘have has’
    I don’t understand this?”

    These are all non-existent structures. If you see them somewhere, they are wrong. This is probably why you don’t understand them. Just forget about them because they don’t exist in English…not even in spoken English. :)

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

      Respected Alex Sir!
      Thanks, Thanks a lot for your reply.
      Now I can understand.

      Thursday, June 2nd 2016

    Hello,
    Would have + had + done/gone …
    THIS IS ENTIRELY WRONG!!!
    Don’t bother yourself looking for it anywhere, friend!

    Wednesday, June 1st 2016

Thank you for your Helpful and interesting lessons. You are great teacher :)
