      Hi Alex,

      Thanks for your lesson. I have question.

      what does the sentence really mean
      ” we cannot afford to miss it.”

      please help me on this. I’ve googled it, but couldn’t find a satisfied answer.

      Thursday, January 31st 2013

your speech is very easy and understanding ,that’s why I love your lessons, Thanks a lot Alex

Friday, January 18th 2013

thanks Alex, I study English at College and when we learnt the superlatives our teacher didn’t know the difference between both, also she said that “further” isn’t superlative of “far”, thank you a lot for your lesson.

Friday, January 18th 2013

    Your teacher was correct. The superlative is “farthest” or “furthest.” :) “Further” and “Farther” are comparatives.

    Wednesday, January 30th 2013

I think I could go a lot further than Messi in his career.

Friday, January 18th 2013

Thanks a lot , you help me to understand english easily. I Would like to know how to difference verbs in past . I have problems with the sounds ,ending ed :t,d,id sounds

Friday, January 18th 2013

I’ll leave here my little secret. It’s really hard to know when it’s further- figurative distance whether farther- physical distance.
*
I think like this:: farther is almost like the word FATHER. You don’t want any “physical contact with your father. You want physical distance kkkkkkkk Brazilian laugh), so if you assimilate farther with father you’ll remember that it means physical distance, then it’s easy to figure that further is the one that means figurative distance.
*
It may seem stupid, but it was how I got 10 out of 10

Saturday, January 19th 2013

    If you know meaning of “far”, you shouldn’t have problems with “far+ther” and “further”.

    Saturday, January 19th 2013

      Oh! Really good one, Morfik.
      Way less complicated than mine.
      Tkx

      Saturday, January 19th 2013

    Lisa,I’ll never forget after this.It’s stupdy,but at the same time It’was intelligent

    Sunday, January 20th 2013

    I agree with Morfik and it seems more reasonable…. but it was interesting the relation that you did with father.

    Sunday, February 10th 2013

    Great idea Lisa.
    I use the same way to memorize difficult sentences and words.

    Sunday, February 17th 2013

    you should just remember. it’s easier way

    Thursday, March 14th 2013

Thanks Alex.
what is the difference between talk and walk and between special and private?

Saturday, January 19th 2013

    To talk is to speak.
    To walk is to move with your legs.

    I’ll let you use a translator for the other words. :)

    Wednesday, January 30th 2013

thanks Alex!

Saturday, January 19th 2013

I hope you’ll teach us further!))) am I right? yeah I know I’m right!

Hi Alex
If I learn many things like that I certainly will go further with my English
See you next time

Saturday, January 19th 2013

Dear Alex!!! Thank u so much for the lesson. The question i would like to ask u about meaning and proper using the phrases like “here we go” or “there we go” (and sometimes is “here you go”). I think they are very important and useful. I’ll be really appreciated if you have an opportunity to reply

Saturday, January 19th 2013

    Use “here we go” before you start doing something.

    Use “there we go” after you finish something.

    Good luck!

    Wednesday, January 30th 2013

      Thanks for clarifying that for me too Alex!
      Cheers

      Thursday, February 7th 2013

Thank you so much, I didn’t know what the difference was!!

I got 100%. But, could you explain the difference between make, have and get ? At school, my teacher said only“this three verbs means pressure, that’s to say someone is restrained to do something.
For examples: – This teacher made us laugh. We were made to wait for hours.
-The management had us sign ten documents.
-If only she could get Mike to dance!

Monday, June 3rd 2013

Hello, can you tell me which sentence is correct?
They hadn’t got any further with the work. OR
They hadn’t got any farther with the work.

Thanks you

Monday, June 3rd 2013

I understand how these two words are used.
I could guess what a figurative distance means, but I’d appreciate it if you could put ‘figurative’ in another word. Thanks!

Friday, June 14th 2013

I’ve got 100%. you are exciting teacher, Alex.
I wanna to know the difference between comma and semicolon. Also, when could I use them.
Thanks a lot

Thursday, July 4th 2013

Thank you so so so much Alex. I really love your lessons because are very helpfull and so nice.

Friday, July 5th 2013

You are the Best Alex. On my first try, I received 10 out of 10.

Friday, July 5th 2013

Alex, thank a lot for this lesson. You explained it very clearly and patently. When I was studying at school, I couldn’t tell the difference between farther and further. But now I can. And I love your trick.
BTW, I got 10 out of 10 right.

Saturday, July 13th 2013

Thanks Alex. short but productive…

Wednesday, July 17th 2013

Hi Alex, very nice explanation. But I’m still in doubt. Does that also work for British English? Because I took a look in Oxford Dictionary, and they present further as a synonym of farther for physical distances. Hope you can help me. Thanks.

Friday, July 19th 2013

THAT’S A PRETTY GOOD WAY TO IDENTIFY ONE FROM THE ANOTHER..

Monday, July 22nd 2013
