      Useful expressions to talk about sports Alex. However, this time we couldn´t get rid of the verb+preposition combinations either.

      The use of the correct preposition, however, help us to convey our ideas properly.

      Thanks for this superb video-lesson Alex.

      Ciao

      Sunday, August 23rd 2015

Saturday, August 15th 2015

I have a question.

“Josh and Peter are siblings, another siblings are JJ and loner”.

“Josh and Peter are siblings, other siblings are JJ and loner”.

Saturday, August 15th 2015

    “Josh and Peter are siblings; another pair of siblings are JJ and Loner.”

    I’m not sure if this is your intention, though.

    Monday, August 31st 2015

FC Barcelona is more than a club for many reasons. Not because they’ve won a treble twice (three trophies in a single season)or because they’ve been the only team in Europe which has won six trophies in a year. But because they represent freedom of speech, especially under the Franco dictatorship, but also Independence of Catalonia and any other country in the world, just like Canada did on July 1st, 1867.

Saturday, August 15th 2015

    Ja,Ja, ja…You have some sort of confussion about Spain. Catalonian is part of Spain and will remain Spanish till the end of times.

    Tuesday, August 18th 2015

      That’s what people like you said about Mexico, Cuba, etc. I’m sorry, nothing is forever. Oh, and I will pretend your comment didn’t sound totalitarian. Remember your own words and we’ll see who right and who’s not. Have a good one.

      Tuesday, August 18th 2015

i should repeat this video again because i got just 6/10 and i hope get 10/10 in next

Saturday, August 15th 2015

    That’s the right attitude. Review and try again.

    Monday, August 31st 2015

very useful video, thanks master alex

Saturday, August 15th 2015

    Thank you. I really appreciate it.

    Monday, August 31st 2015

Unfortunately, I could not become a pro at speaking about the sports, because I am not a fan with those kinds of sports such as soccer, hockey, baseball. But I have learned the important vocabulary related to sports.
However, the quiz was beaten totally by Chloe. And all in all, Chloe blew the quiz out. Wow!…Go Gunners.
Thank you for this fun and useful lesson, teacher Alex. :)

Saturday, August 15th 2015

Very nice

Sunday, August 16th 2015

I was beat by the quiz .7-0 for me but I don’t feel that it is good

Sunday, August 16th 2015

Hi Alex, I know this is completely out of topic but I was just wondering, about the use of “a few / few “, I saw a video on here that if you say, “I have FEW pens”, it means that you don’t have enough pens whereas “I have A FEW PENS” means you have enough. So my question is, does this rule apply to when, how do i explain this.. say, someone asks you “have you been to London before?”, Is it grammatically correct to answer with “yes a few times”?

Sunday, August 16th 2015

    Yes, that is correct. :)

    Monday, August 31st 2015

great less, Alex…thank you…it was very accessible.

Sunday, August 16th 2015

    great lesson, Alex…thank you…it was very accessible.

    Sunday, August 16th 2015

      Thanks. That’s what I was trying to do.

      Monday, August 17th 2015

I like this lesson because I often watch Major League Baseball. It’s very helpful for me. Though the Jays made 11-streak win, and temporarily were on the top of the standing, they are now 2nd place due to beaten by theYanks. Today, Tanaka has done a complete game against the Jays. AL east division is as hot as this summer! Thank you, Alex!

Sunday, August 16th 2015

    Go Jays! I don’t follow baseball a lot these days, but I’m happy to see Toronto finally doing well after all these years.

    Monday, August 17th 2015

This is my 1St visit and i got a great experience

Sunday, August 16th 2015

9\10 thanks so much for the expliación Mr alex

Sunday, August 16th 2015

This was my first class wiht you, very interesting and fun,thank you for all, i am going to take a lot a classes.

Sunday, August 16th 2015

    Welcome to EngVid! Thank you very much for watching.

    Monday, August 31st 2015

Thanks Alex!

Now, I know how to speak about sport matches in English. I will use this to talk to others about sports, excluding soccer :-)

Sunday, August 16th 2015

The quiz was a nail-biter.

Sunday, August 16th 2015

7/10 :-( I never thought I could fail this quiz, but …. It happens. It was a blow out, I think.

Monday, August 17th 2015

Thank you Alex I got 8 correct out of 10 . I really like your lesson because I love football match.

Monday, August 17th 2015

this is my first time parctice English with you
i got 8/10….so exiting
thx so much

Monday, August 17th 2015

Wow 9/10!!!

One little “t” on “bitter” and I didn’t do all correct =(…

Monday, August 17th 2015

Hi Alex,
What a fantastic lesson! You have taught me this everyday English that I can use to communicate with friends in daily life. It is more than the dull English learned in school for taking the exam.
Fully support you as a fan living far far away on another side of the globe.

Monday, August 17th 2015

    Thanks a lot. I genuinely appreciate your support.

    Monday, August 17th 2015

Thanks!

Monday, August 17th 2015

You seem to be quite a soccer fan, huh Alex?
I’m not, but it was nice to learn this. I’ll use them in the next World Cup.

Germany beat Brazil 7-0. It was shocking. Haha! They were blown out big time. Did you watch that game?

I’m not that into soccer. I prefer volleyball, basketball, swimming and athletics. But I’ll wait for Brazil to blow them all out. Hehe!

Thank you very much, Alex!
I’m always glad to watch your videos.

Monday, August 17th 2015

    I didn’t see the whole game, but I remember following the score on my phone. My eyes got bigger and bigger with each goal that Germany scored.

    I enjoy soccer and sports in general, but these days, I honestly prefer reading or spending time with my family.

    Monday, August 31st 2015

      That’s way better. Spending time with family trumps everything. See you soon!

      Tuesday, September 1st 2015

Thanks a lot, i got 9/10 ;)

Tuesday, August 18th 2015

Hi Alex, wouldn´t be “Chelsea WAS beaten” instead Chelsea were beaten? I assume tha Chelsea as a group should be considered in the third singular person. Thanks!

Tuesday, August 18th 2015

    Good catch! “Chelsea were beaten” is acceptable in British English, which uses third-person plural with groups. The UK is the heart of English-speaking football culture, and so I think this is why Alex uses a bit of British English here.

    Wednesday, August 19th 2015

Hi Alex, great lesson about the sports. Thanks!!!
I love football

Tuesday, August 18th 2015

thanks a lot.

Wednesday, August 19th 2015

Good lesson ALEX ! Could you make lesson about rugby ? This will be great I Think )

Wednesday, August 19th 2015

    I don’t think I know enough about rugby to make a useful video, but maybe one of the other teachers would be interested in this!

    Monday, August 31st 2015

the lesson is very good

Wednesday, August 19th 2015

very nyc lesson

Wednesday, August 19th 2015

Thnk you Alex !

Wednesday, August 19th 2015

Thank you teacher. i got 8/10 _*_

Thursday, August 20th 2015

I am not really a football fan but I love Barcelona because of Messi

Thursday, August 20th 2015

    That’s a good reason. Messi is a wonderful soccer player.

    Monday, August 31st 2015

Very good lesson.Thanks

Thursday, August 20th 2015

Thank you Alex.

Friday, August 21st 2015

    You’re very welcome.

    Monday, August 24th 2015

Wow ! great thanks my Gunner ^_^ Alex

Saturday, August 22nd 2015

I love soccer, but in my country the baseball is the sport most popular. My favorite soccer team is the Barcelona, it’s the best team of the momment.

Alex your explanation was spectacular, congratulations!

Saturday, August 22nd 2015

    Thank you very much!

    I know that baseball is the most popular sport in Venezuela. The Blue Jays are lucky to have Encarnacion!

    Monday, August 31st 2015

9/10

Saturday, August 22nd 2015

9/10 tnx

Sunday, August 23rd 2015

Alex, I have a doubt.
Why not say “Chelsea was beaten by Arsenal”?

Monday, August 24th 2015

    This is also possible. However, “was” comes after “it”, and I would never say “It was beaten by Arsenal” to refer to soccer. I will always say “They were beaten by Arsenal,” which is why I say “Chelsea were beaten by Arsenal” in the video.

    …and now I just like typing Chelsea were beaten by Arsenal. Haha.

    Monday, August 31st 2015

very cool

Monday, August 24th 2015

9/10, this quiz was beaten by me =).

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

Thanks a lot, Alex. The lesson is helpful.

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

9/10))) thank you Mr. Alex for your lesson)))it was very interesting for me)

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

Hi Alex, my favourit teacher…so nice lesson…I wish I had you in our school in Toronto as a teacher for English learners or my private teacher …the method of teaching in our school is really boring cuz they always focus on writing essay and I don’t like it.

Tuesday, August 25th 2015

    Writing is definitely important, but it needs to be combined with oral practice.

    Monday, August 31st 2015

thanks a lot dr

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

Oh, I was beaten by the test!! I need to repeat lhe lesson again.

Wednesday, August 26th 2015

    Try again and see if you can improve!

    Monday, August 31st 2015

have you ever thought about record lesson together? i think it will be great.

Thursday, August 27th 2015

    It’s difficult to coordinate our schedules because we live in different parts of Toronto, and I actually live around Montreal. However, I will let you know that we all had dinner together this past weekend, and there is a special video coming!

    Monday, August 31st 2015

    You’re welcome. Fantastic job!

    Monday, August 31st 2015

Thanks Alex,It’s a good lesson.

Saturday, August 29th 2015

Can you explain how use once in a sentence

Saturday, August 29th 2015

    Once I make a video, I’ll let you know. :) You can basically use it as a substitute for “When” in a lot of cases, but it’s a little more complex, so a video might be a good idea.

    Monday, August 31st 2015

thank you teacher is really amazing..

Monday, August 31st 2015

    Thank you very much!

    Monday, August 31st 2015

Your explication is easy to understand. Thank you! Congrats! :)

Monday, August 31st 2015

    Thanks, Giovana. Also, don’t forget to say “explanation” instead of “explication”. :)

    Wednesday, September 2nd 2015

thank you alex .
i confuse between blowout and blow out

Tuesday, September 1st 2015

    “Blowout” is a noun.
    -The game was a blowout.
    -I think it’s going to be a blowout

    “Blow (someone) out” is a phrasal verb.
    -Arsenal blew out Aston Villa.
    -Barcelona blew them out!

    I hope this helps a little bit.

    Wednesday, September 2nd 2015

7 / 10
:D

Tuesday, September 1st 2015

    Not bad! Keep studying!

    Wednesday, September 2nd 2015

Wednesday, November 4th 2015

Hi Alex thank you very much.
engVid is the best :)
In italian language a team is considered a “third person” but in english isn’t.
So, I cannot say Chelsea WAS beaten by Arsenal.
It’s right?

Saturday, November 7th 2015

thanks Alex!

Sunday, November 8th 2015

Thank you very much Alex. I got 8 correct answers of 10. It is my worth score. However, it remembered me the match between Arsenal and Manch Unit, which is Arsenal blew them out 8:2.

Saturday, June 25th 2016

Hello Alex! Quite interesting lesson. Brazil lost against Germany in the last World Cup. The score was 7-1. It was a blowout. And a shame too. Everything happened at home… By the way, can I use the verb “to support” in other situations? For instance: “I am supporting my brother in his new job” (I mean I hope he gets on in his new job). Thank you in advance.

Sunday, July 31st 2016

9/10 score…Thanks a lot, teacher :)

Sunday, August 7th 2016

Almost perfect 8/10

Saturday, August 27th 2016

Thursday, September 29th 2016

Merci Alex pour cette leçon à l’usage des fans de football.

Friday, October 14th 2016

Hi Alex. As an Arsenal fan do you remember russian player Andrey Arshavin ? The four goals against Liverpool at 2009 were unforgettable. Have you seen Euro 2008 and what do you think about Russian national team and Arshavin there?
P.S. Did I write this sentence correctly?
