    Thanks for your support.

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

“Engvid made me smile” is not correct? I used to write like that. “Make” means “force”…I see. Well, “Engvid helped me smile” is OK? I’m confused. But I got 7 correct out of 9. Nice for me. Thank you, Alex :)

Wednesday, February 12th 2014

    It’s correct. :) “That makes me smile.” Basically, causes me or forces me to smile. It doesn’t have to have a negative meaning.

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

      I got it :D Your reply causes me to smile. Thank you so much, Alex!

Good explaination Alex. I always keep the track of your lessons.
Alex, could you make a lesson about the difference between above and over – below and under,beneath with examples?
I don`t get it thanx

Wednesday, February 12th 2014

    That’s not a bad idea. I’ll keep it in mind for a future lesson.

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

      Excellent, Alex! I’ll be to the expectation.

      Thank you!

Thanks Alex

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    Any time. Thanks for your support.

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

Thank you for this lesson!It’s very useful! I have one question…before I want to read or write smth in english, I make a sentence in my native language. It’s difficult for me to start making a sentence in eng. it’s better for me to know how it will sound in Russian. is it bad or not?????????? I think that it is very bad, because I can’t sound like a native speaker..and between sentences and a couple of words I have breaks.:(

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    MaryShevtsova, almost everybody has the same problem. I think you should do three things to overcome it: practice, practice, practice :-) Good luck!

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

      Like you said, it’s a common problem. If you’re a beginner, it’s totally normal. However, if you’re a high intermediate or advanced learner, you should be able to learn without relying on translation as much.

      Thursday, February 13th 2014

    When you start learning a language, translation is really normal. Practically everyone does it. However, once you reach the high intermediate or advanced level, you should no longer be using translations…especially for grammar. It’s okay for vocabulary, but grammatical translation can often confuse you more.

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

      Thank you for these pieces of advice:)but the matter is that I’m sophomore. I study in the linguistic university. and when it’s time for speaking, I don’t feel enough confident to talk on various topics. And the reason is that I can’t speak in English. The only way is to go to English speaking country

      Friday, February 14th 2014

        And When I read smth in Eng, I can do it without translating and I can understand everything) But, When I start to talk, or write smth(for example like right now) I have to make a sentence in Russian and then in eng

        Friday, February 14th 2014

HI who wants improve english as me?please call me in skype for practising english.THis is my skype name: aliyev.natiq587

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    Great idea! The more you practice with others, the better you will become.

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

Is it possible to use these words with other tenses?

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    Absolutely.

    “I’ve never been able to get him to do anything!”
    “She’s helping me practice.”
    “I’ll make him do it later.”

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

I was not certain about which way of saying this was correct, “to help someone TO DO something”, or “to help someone DO something”. Now I got it, Thank you!

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    Both are used and correct. I’m glad I could answer this question for you.

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

A little confuse but finally, I got it.

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    “A little confusing, but I finally got it.”

    I’m glad to hear that.

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

Thanks teacher. That’s great you help us improve our English:-) I got 10/10.

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    Nice job!

    “It’s great that you help us improve our English”

    or

    “That’s great! You help us improve our English.”

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

      Thanks again Alex. I knew my sentence wasn’t correct but didn’t know what exactly was wrong:-)

Thursday, February 13th 2014

Well i figure that out!! i have to put more emphasis on verbs!! I’ll get there. Thank you.
God bless you!

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    Keep studying. You’ll get there.

    “I figured that out.” :)

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

2/10 :( very bad

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    Don’t get discouraged. Go back, study the rules, and try again.

    GET someone TO DO
    LET someone DO
    HAVE someone DO
    MAKE someone DO
    HELP someone DO/TO DO

    The only one that requires “to do” is GET. HELP uses either one, and MAKE, HAVE, and LET all use the base verb after.

    Thursday, February 13th 2014

Thanks Alex, it is really helpful.

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    No problem.

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

THANKS A LOT

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    You’re welcome a lot!

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

Thanks for this lesson Alex! That use of the HAVE verb was really new for me. I will try to keep that meaning in mind.

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    Sounds like a plan!

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

Very useful lesson!
I recalled song ‘Crazy’ by Aerosmith. “Thats kind of loving makes me pull down the shade…”. I’ve never understood the meaning of ‘makes’ here. Now I know it. Thank you a lot!

And now I understand the meaning of sentence “(You) have your friends collect your records
and then change your number” from song ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’. The word ‘have’ was so confused for me here.

Thursday, February 13th 2014

    Awesome! I’m glad it has cleared some things up for you. And “Crazy” is a great tune.

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

I swear that I’ve got it clearly now, thank you teacher!

Thursday, February 13th 2014

Thanks a lot.The lesson was really clear and easy to understand.I think I’ve learned very well,however I usually forget when to use infinitive form.Anyway, I have to study hard.Good luck and have an nice day…

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Only use infinitive with “get” in this structure, or with “help.”

    Friday, February 14th 2014

you got me to follow your nice lessons ,after watching this video.Thanks a lot.

Friday, February 14th 2014

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Thanks for watching it! Try again. :)

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

thanks Alex , I have learnt a lot from your comments when you make our sentences correct

Friday, February 14th 2014

    “when you make our sentences correct” is grammatically fine, but the more common usage is “when you correct our sentences.”

    Friday, February 14th 2014

It help me a lot. Thank you very much.

Friday, February 14th 2014

    I’m glad it has helped you!

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

You got me to continue learning English on EngVid.

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Glad to hear it!

    Friday, February 21st 2014

God bless everyone! I just turn on my computer to study my next lesson! Have everybody a nice day!!

Friday, February 14th 2014

    You too! Thank you!

    Friday, February 21st 2014

The usage of “have” isn’t clear yet.
I need to expose myself to lots of examples.

Friday, February 14th 2014

still poor!! but i never give up : )

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Nice job!

    Friday, February 14th 2014

Good lesson,thank you so much

Friday, February 14th 2014

    You’re welcome!

    Friday, February 14th 2014

Great lesson Alex, I got 8/9.

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Nice job!

    Friday, February 14th 2014

Oh wow, thank you for this lesson Alex, I totally got the clear idea of causatives. I hadn’t been able to understand it but now, I got it. Greetings!

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Greetings! I’m glad you got it now.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Thanks a lot Alex! That was truly a great lesson. Besides, it was clearly explained. I just wonder if you could tell me more about the verbs “bring” and “draw”. I guess they can also be used as causative verbs, like when you bring or draw sb to do sth. How can we interpret that please?

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Hmm, I’m having a hard time thinking of examples for “bring” and “draw” since I don’t normally think of them as causatives. I mean, you can “bring” someone to a certain point.

    “You brought me to this! It’s not my fault! You caused this!”

    But it’s not really common to use the causative structure with either of these verbs. Sorry! Wish I could help more!

    Friday, February 21st 2014

it was great lesson thanks alot Alex , but please could you make the resolution bigger . some time its really hard to see and read . big thanks

Friday, February 14th 2014

    I’ll try to write in bigger letters. I don’t control the resolution. :)

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Thank you alex, you have some special features on teaching, do not ask me what are they.

God Bless you.

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Thank you very much. I appreciate that.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

You got 0 correct out of 9.
Thanks.

Friday, February 14th 2014

    0? Or 9? Good luck!

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Thank you, Alex, for this useful lesson!

I’ve got 100, but if the phrase “I had him to clean the kitchen” can’t be correct, when I mean anybody (or something) wich helped me in the kitchen?

Friday, February 14th 2014

    “I had him clean the kitchen” is correct. No “to.” I’m not sure I understand the other part of your question.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Thank you so so much, Alex. It’s a great lesson
I got 7/9

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Thanks. Keep studying!

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Thanks Alex. I’ve learned / I learned the whole stuff here. I love the EngVid lessons, specially Ronnie’s classes (about her humor) and your classes.
Let me ask you something… in Portuguese, when someone have the same name as you, you say he’s your ‘xará’ (you read that ‘sha-ra’, pronouncing both the first and the second A as you pronounce in the word America. The stressed syllable is the second one). How do you say that in English? I mean, which word do you use to qualify someone who have the same name as you?
By the way, my name is Alex Gouvea Vasconcelos, and I’m from Brazil.

Friday, February 14th 2014

    A palavra em Inglês é “namesake”. The word in English is “namesake”. xará = namesake.

    Sunday, February 16th 2014

      Correct. Thanks! :)

      Friday, February 21st 2014

    The word is “namesake.”

    Ex. “I’m my grandmother’s namesake.”
    “I have a friend who’s my namesake.”

    It’s not overly common, but you can use it.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

First of all, congratulations for the tastest lesson. I’ve shared on my fb. And second hand, thanks for this excellent (and concise) lesson. Good job!!!

Friday, February 14th 2014

    Thanks for sharing! And did you mean “fast lesson”?

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Hi,
Thanks for this lesson.I enjoyed your teaching style.

Saturday, February 15th 2014

    I’m happy to hear that. Thank you.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Hi Sir,

Could teach us the passive voice of this structure?Please!

Saturday, February 15th 2014

    “I was made to help him.”

    Hmm, the other ones don’t sound good in passive form in my mind. :p That’s the quick answer.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Hi, dear Alex
I enjoyed the topic and your performance. I watched this video 3 times and learned a lot.Thank you very much. I think the engvid method is one of the best methods that I’ve ever seen, and you are one of the best teachers in group.You are as good as Rebecca and Adam…

Sunday, February 16th 2014

    Thanks. I appreciate that. We all work hard.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

hi alex you are e good teacher.

Sunday, February 16th 2014

    Thank you very much.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

I had my house cleaned once a week.
I’m confused. I don’t force anyone to clean my house.
I had my car serviced every month.
I don’t force anyone. I go to the service car or the garage, an i pay for it.
Forced?

Sunday, February 16th 2014

    “had” means you requested that someone do it for you. It doesn’t mean “forced.” “Make/made” means forced.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Thanks Alex. I love your English and the way you teach :)

Sunday, February 16th 2014

    That’s nice to hear. Thank you.

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Thank you Mr.Alex. I would like to ask you one question…. What is the difference between TAKE A SHOWER and Make A SHOWER? Thanks.

Sunday, February 16th 2014

    We don’t use “make a shower.” It would mean to build or construct a shower. The correct verb with “shower” or “bath” is “take.” :)

    Friday, February 21st 2014

      Thank you very much.I understand and I am writing on my notebook now.Can I say ” I like to have a shower after I have breakfast.” or I like to take a shower after I have breakfast.”? .

      Thursday, February 27th 2014

Hi Alex thank you very much. You helped me to clearly understand it. What I need to do now is to remember and apply it in a daily basis. Godbless. :(

Sunday, February 16th 2014

    It takes time. Good luck!

    Friday, February 21st 2014

finally i found this :)
and i got 89
thanks ALex

Sunday, February 16th 2014

    Nice job!

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Nice video lesson.

Sunday, February 16th 2014

    Thank you so much!

    Friday, February 21st 2014

Is this grammar just be used in Pass Tense? Thanks.

Monday, February 17th 2014

    Nope! You can use it in any tense.

    “I’m going to make my sister do it.”
    “She has had me do that before.”
    Etc.

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

God bless u Mr.Alex…its my first comment because i have start watching this lesson few days ago… but my english improved… also i have problem sometime i dont know how to use can,cant,could,will,would, shall and should.. thanks!!

Monday, February 17th 2014

    I’m glad you feel more confident now!

    Can/Can’t = present ability
    Could = past ability/permission/possibility

    And…well, that’s a good start. The topics are really big!

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

my english is not very well . so i want to learn english much more . i hope i can speak E with native speakers. thank you for your useful video. i’m glad to meet everybody.

Monday, February 17th 2014

    “My English is not very good.” “Well” means healthy in this context. Keep practicing!

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

      oh. thanks you so much. i make a mistake again . i will try to practice E everyday . if i can chat with native speaker, i will improve my english . please help me!

      Friday, February 21st 2014

Thank you so much Alex. Your videos are very useful. Anyway, please let me ask you a question. I’ve learned about infinitive and gerund verbs, so for the verb HELP. Should I use infinitive or gerund or it is another story that not relate to causative verbs. Thank you sir.

Monday, February 17th 2014

    Help + infinitive or Help + pronoun + infinitive OR base verb. However, if you use the phrase “can’t help,” which means you have no control over something, you use the gerund.

    “I can’t help sneezing lately. I’m sick.”

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

Alex, your job is appreciable. Thanks for the wonderful lesson on causative verbs with clear and point to point explaination. It’s been a long time since I was searching for causative verb better explaintion but today I got it from you. Thanks alot

Hey Alex thanks for these lessons, I’m improving my english without getting bored myself. Carry on like this!!
Greetings from Italy :)

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

    That’s great to hear. And I like your name and avatar!

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

I’m confuse with the basic verb, it’s mean without plus s for the third person? which one is correct? “she let him go.” or “she let him goes.”

Tuesday, February 18th 2014

    “She let him go.” That’s the past tense. If you wanted to use the present, it would be “She lets him go.”

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

    Thursday, February 20th 2014

Hi Alex! thanks..

It’s really a very informative lecture.. I wanted to ask about this: ‘ I wanted thank …..’is it correct? or I need to insert “to” after wanted? I’m just confused…Thanks in advance Alex..

Thursday, February 20th 2014

    “I wanted TO thank you” is correct. After want, use to + base verb. :) Same with “need,” “hope,” “wish,” and a hundred others!

Hi everyone!,
I have a doubt, The question number two in the quiz, “Who forced you to do that?” the question is in an informal way, isn’t it?, It’s because I can’t see the auxiliary that I suppose is “did”.

I feel so thankful because of your lessons, I have learned a lot. ^^

Sunday, February 23rd 2014

Thanks Alex. 9/9

Thank you Alex

Wednesday, February 26th 2014

100%
Just wanted to say that your work is amazing.
In real life specially in VietNam, they don’t give us free lesson like you guys. If you want to learn English you got to pay pretty much $ to some fancy facility or some tutoring program. Stuff we learn in high school aren’t enough. they make up some cheap boring homework for us to do which lots of student in VietNam doesn’t do it or even bat an eye.
God Bless what you’re doing. Hope you guys could expand this to every in need.

Good morning Alex!! Congratulations for your class about this topic it is so tough for me

Could you answer me some questions related to this topic please

The authorities say that he can’t stay in the country any longer

LET

My answer was: the authorities don’t let him stay in the country any longer

Why is not correct?? Why is “the authorities won’t let him stay …

Another example: both forms are correct right?

didn’t let =wouldn’t let

He didn’ give me a chance to speak, he just shouted at me

LET

He didn’t let me or wouldn’t let me speak,

Thank you in advance for your help cheers

Monday, June 30th 2014

hj alex, i really appreciate your teaching, i think that all of your lessons are useful and easy to learn. and i know that to obtain fluency in english, i have to practise every day. but sometimes it’s difficult for me to find the real materials that are suitable for my level. almost common news sites are very tough for me to read, i mean that they always use lots of phrasal verbs, formal words,.. and it must be for advanced learners. can you recommend me some sites that are suitable for learner at intermediate level?
thanks a lot!!

Monday, July 7th 2014
