Monday, August 24th 2015

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

I have two questions.The first one is: in the second part of the sentence we say I would have, you would have she would have or she would has?
The second one is:In the second part of the sentence we put the verd in past participle always like at the first part or not?

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

    hi, I will answer your first question: …she would have

    Wednesday, August 26th 2015

    Hi,
    Answer for your second question;
    You right, We always use the past participle of the verb in the second part.
    If + Subject + had + V(Past Participle)
    Subject + would + have(always have and for all subject) + V(Past Participle)

    Friday, August 28th 2015

      Hello,
      Please also note that in the test sentences there are examples of MIXED conditional as well such as “If I had packed a lunch, I WOULD NOT BE so hungry (NOW).”
      You can find more examples here: http://www.englishpage.com/conditional/mixedconditional.html

    Sunday, August 30th 2015

Hi Benjamin,
I’ve got a question concerning sentence 9: “If I had packed a lunch, I ____________ so hungry”
Personally, I would have said “I wouldn’t have been so hungry”, in the same way as all the other exaple sentences. Could you, please, explain, why you’ve chosen to do this one differently.
Thanks for your reply.

Regards,

André

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

Some sentences, that I don’t understand.
3. If you had arrived on time, we would not be finishing so late. (I would prefer: If you have arrived on time, we would not be finishing so late. (If subject had past participle, subject would have past participle)).
5. If Don had eaten less, he would feel less sick. (I would prefer to say: If Don HAVE eaten less… or If Don HAD eaten less, he would HAVE FELT less sick.
9. If I had packed a lunch, I would not be so hungry. (Is that correct? I would say: If I had packed a lunch, I would not have been so hungry.

Could a native speaker explain me, why I am wrong, please?

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

I have got 10 correct out of 10 in the Quiz.

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

There’s a mistake in the third question, isn’t it ? “If you ___________ on time, we would not be finishing …” I think it’s “If you ___________ on time, we would not have been finishing” But I’m not the teacher so… Can anyone tell me whether I’m right or not?

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

Great site.

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

Thanks Benjamin!
If i had taken the quiz, i would have learnt more this leason.

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

thanks benjamin

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

hi everyone, I wonder why the question 3 in the quiz, in the second part we dont use this structure:” would have done something” instead???in my mind i think it should be: “If you had arrived on time, we would have not finished so late” i’m so confused??by the way, thanks for your great lesson Benjamin!

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

    hi, Mai Anh June!i think in your example “If you had arrived on time, we would not have finished so late” the action has been finished whereas in the Ben’s sentence action is still going on(they are finishing now). this is not only sentence of the kind in the quiz.but these are just my thoughts.
    best regards

    Thursday, August 27th 2015

Thanks Benjamin!

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

The best tip i have ever got,Benjamin:-)Thanks for the lesson and tip as well.

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

Thank you very much sir. It was absolutely worth watching. Sir, I would be thankful to you, if you make a video on Youtube discussing differences between “Less” & “Lesser”.

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

Thanks a lot . If I hadn’t watched this lesson, I wouldn’d have learnt about this topic.

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

Thank you Benjamin

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

Thanks for your willingness to teach us. I had watched so many tv series and movies, but it´s so good can watch these lessons too, cause we can improve the way we comunicate, and learn to build more elaborate phrases.

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

Always great, Benjamin! Thanks!

If I had been watching these engvideos before, I could have understood more the movies conversations.

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

I thought that’s a hardest lesson I’ve ever seen but I got 9 of 10, I’m gonna kiss myself *PEACE OUT*
THANK YOU Mr.Bengamin ..

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

I’ve got perfect! It’s thanks to you, Ben! But another reason why I could get 100 is perhaps that I’m regretting many things I hadn’t done in the life. Especially the last question in the quiz is what I’m always thinking lol.
Anyway, if I had found out EngVid earlier, my English skill would have been more improved faster.

Thursday, August 27th 2015

If I had known this web, I would have written English well

Hi Benjamin.
Actually,I would like to express three sentences in this quiz by another way; but I don’t know if they are correct or not, such as:
Questions:
3. If you had arrived on time, we would not be finished to late.
5. If Don had eaten less, he would have felt less sick.
Thank you for this great lesson. All the best to you, Benjamin.

9. If I had packed a lunch, I would not have been so hungry.

good job

Tuesday, September 8th 2015

if i had not practised .I would not have learnt this.

that is really effective and best for beginners

Wednesday, September 9th 2015

Benjiamin you said thet “seen” and “spoken” are the past form of the verbs but I think they are P.P. as well…

Thursday, September 10th 2015

By the way why doesn`t work Exquisite English?

Thursday, September 10th 2015

Sunday, September 13th 2015

if i had learnt english in right way i would have taught english

Sunday, September 13th 2015

Hi Benjamin!, I love your British accent, though why did you use the get past participle as “gotten”? That’s a big mistake in British English as it’s the American past participle of GET in American English. Anyway, great lesson about the third conditional usage.

Sunday, September 13th 2015

If I had not watched your videos on engvid.com,I would have not gotten 10/10. Thanks! for interesting lesson.

Friday, September 18th 2015

Sunday, September 27th 2015

nice, but i did not understand that sentence. If cristina had not put off her medical assessment, she would have GOTTEN the job. GOTTEN is correct? because i checked the past participle and is GOT. Someone could help me please

Thursday, October 1st 2015

Sunday, October 4th 2015

Hey Benjamin!! Is this the third conditional?

Sunday, October 4th 2015

Hi Mr.Benjamin I got a question please , I heard you saying in the video ” If i had known that Chelsea were playing at home at Stamford bridge ” We refers to Chelsea by the pronoun “it” in the past we use was with the pronoun”it” but you said were Chelsea not was Chelsea , If i’m wrong i hope you explain that to me ? Thank you Sir

Wednesday, October 7th 2015

    I think you got wrong it’s “If i hadn’t watched your video i wouldn’t have be able to understood about If i had” i think that’s the right form …

    Thursday, October 8th 2015

Excuse me…I have a question.
If you ___________ on time, we would not be finishing so late.
Why is “had arrived” not”have arrived”?

Wednesday, October 14th 2015

    Nice question Sammy, in the given choices “have arrived” shouldn’t be a mistake.

    Saturday, October 31st 2015

      Oh man! I just realize it. The lesson is all about using if I had. Maybe that’s the reason. ^_^

      Saturday, October 31st 2015

if i had studied well in school,i would have passed my ielts exam

Wednesday, October 14th 2015

Sunday, July 10th 2016

Could we use the same verb tense (Past Perfect) in U.S. english? Or should we use Simple Past? Something like “If I knew that it was a beautiful day, I would have invite you at the party”

Wednesday, July 20th 2016

*would have invited

Wednesday, July 20th 2016

If I had not found out engvid, I would not known about this interesting lesson…
