Monday, July 27th 2009

Has she finished her homework yet?

I have a confusion in the sentence.

please can you Mr.Alex explicate why this is right and other is wrong ?

I’m waiting you ,,

thank you ..

Friday, July 31st 2009

    You can use both sentences:

    “Has she finished her homework yet?” means that she has likely not completed her homework, and you want to find out if she has completed it.

    “Has she finished her homework already?” is used as an expression of surprise. It means that she finished it very quickly, and you are surprised at how quickly she did finish it.

    I hope this helps.

    Saturday, September 19th 2009

Yeah! Eeng, I even dont understand how different between 3nd and 4nd question? also thank so much !

Sunday, August 2nd 2009

Thanks you very much. II prefer still on more difficultly passes tests, help me please. I am from Tadjikistan.
Best regards to everyone.

Friday, August 7th 2009

I usually use already when I want to ask questions, for example: Have you already taken your medicine? and I use yet in negative sentences, for example: I haven’t traveled to USA yet. Am I correct?
Thanks.

Sunday, August 23rd 2009

hi Eeng

because we did not know if she finished her homework or not we just ask

and the next qustion ” Which question do you use if you want to show that you are surprised that something has been finished?
Have they arrived at the party already?!
Have they arrived at the party yet?!

we know that they arrived to the party
howwe know that ” they arrive to the party ” because in the question said “you are surprised that something has been finished?”

already comes with somthing done active you did it and finished and you know that

yet-> comes with negative “not” in the sentence
and in the question if you did not know if somthing done or not

i hope you got it

Saturday, July 10th 2010

I’m sorry I’m not an expert in English, but in the quiz has a mistake(in my opinion):
“My aunt has not gotten her driver’s license _______.

yet
already”
Is “gotten” right?If I am not right,I apologize
And thank you, Alex, for the excellent lessons.

Friday, July 16th 2010

    “Gotten” is used in American English. In British English it is not used that much anymore.

this lesson is just about two words but truly useful. I’m grateful to those who spent their precious time to prepare this wonderful lesson and prepared it for the people who are starving for education. Anyway, Ii don’t know how to thank you completely

Friday, January 14th 2011

This site is awesome. I find it very resourceful. Keep on going.

Friday, January 21st 2011

hey i just confiused about how to use the already and yet

Thursday, January 27th 2011

Dear Alex, your lecture is excellent. Thanks a lot. In the quiz, I am little bit confused about the following question.

Which question do you use if you want to find out if the following action has taken place before now?

* Has she finished her homework already?
* Has she finished her homework yet?

Could you please explain why second one is correct?
Another question is that, Suppose, My team leader has assigned me a task. But I could not do the task in time. So, can I tell, “I could not complete my task yet.”

Sunday, January 30th 2011

Great video. Thank you Alex and EngVid.

Thursday, February 10th 2011

Thank you Alex for your video!
But I’ve a question about your example:
“I’ve not yet seen Africa”.
What is the difference between this statement and that: “I haven’t seen Africa yet”?

Tuesday, February 15th 2011

    There is no difference, except that “I”ve not yet seen Africa” is more formal. The other form is more commonly used.

    Friday, November 18th 2011

Thank very much for helping me to understand how
end when I can use the words already and yet.
This little grammar lesson was very useful to me.

A- Why did not you come by bus ?
B- Because it already (leave) the station by the time I arrived there.

I solve it:
It has already left, I am I right?

And why we did not say:
It had already left. And why ? :(

    You can use both, but it depends on what you want to say.

    “Has the workshop started already?” (maybe you came late)

    “Has the workshop started yet?”
    (maybe you came early, and want to know if it will begin soon)

hi Alex! ”have they arrived at the party yet!?” why is this sentence uncorrect? thenk you!

Sunday, November 18th 2012

Hi Alex, I have problem here with this question in the exam: 3. Which question do you use if you want to find out if the following action has taken place before now?

Has she finished her homework already?
Has she finished her homework yet?

I marked first one because u say that if an action has finished or happened before now, we use “already.”
but the second one was correct!! So I have misunderstood here…
Thanks again dear Alex ;)

Monday, November 26th 2012

Hi Alex, I like your lessons a lot. Are these questions correct? Am I not allowed to use yet in other tenses ?

Can we leave yet?
I do not know yet.

Saturday, December 22nd 2012

Hi everyone

Sunday, January 12th 2014

It’s kind of weird for me to use Yet with a positive auxiliary verb in a question.

Has she arrived at the party yet?

Can I say…

Hasn’t she arrived at the party yet?

Thank you for the lesson. :D

Thursday, April 24th 2014

Hi Alex, I love the way you have been teaching us. You did explain very clearly and easy to understand. Could you give us some more lesson about how we use “Do” and the verb to be “Is, am, are ” when we want to ask a question?
