Friday, February 17th 2012

REALLY VERY GOOD KNOWLEDGE OF MOSTLY USED ADJ, ADVERB , THANKS FOR TEACHING ……. KEEP IT UP FOR US…

Friday, February 17th 2012

Emma I have a question in your example: ” I am……finished” the answer is almost. but, Why finished instead of finishing. I think that exemple should be in presente progresive. What do you think?

Saturday, February 18th 2012

    I have to answer on this question.
    The sentence “I am almost finishing” makes no sense. Therefore, you have to use Past Tense to say that you have completed 99% of your action (whatever it is). So, not finiched, but almost finished.

    Saturday, February 18th 2012

    Hi angelopolis,

    ‘Finished’ is an adjective in this sentence, not a verb.

    Another example of an adjective that has the same verb form is closed. We can say ‘The store is closed.’ In this case, closed is an adjective, not a verb.

    Thursday, February 23rd 2012

      Emma, You are a perfect teacher. I love your teaching style. Really nice. Well Done; Keep it up

      Saturday, March 10th 2012

      Hey There Emma,

      I don’t still understand why (finished) is adjective.
      which difference between both sentences?
      Why not use the suffix ing, but ed.
      In the Portuguese (Terminado = finished), something that is over now.
      In the Portuguese (Terminando = finishing), something not over yet.

      Thanks a lot!

      Tuesday, March 27th 2012

        habakkuk,

        The phrase “I am almost finishing” needs a complement to make sense.
        For example, “I am almost finishing my homework” (finish = verb). In BR-portuguese we say “Estou quase acabando”, but in English you should tell what are being finished.

        A good translation into BR-portuguese for “I am almost finished” is “Estou quase pronto” (pronto = adjective)

        Do I make myself clear?
        I hope so.

        Wednesday, April 18th 2012

          Sorry, but my last comment is not corret. Actually, we dont use “finishig” in English.

          Wednesday, April 18th 2012

          Many many many many thanks, Emma.

          I do understand!!!

          Take care

          Monday, July 2nd 2012

        Hi all. As I understood and continue understanding in English everithing is not like in other languages.
        So there is no use to say that “ why in some language it is so and in english it isn‘t so?!“ English is dificult!
        So, I‘m almost finished. Someone + be+ done. I think, FINISHED IS P.P.(Past Partisipal)!!!

        Monday, July 2nd 2012

Cutie :)

Saturday, February 18th 2012

Saturday, February 18th 2012

thank u Emma for your lesson
Can u help me differentiate 2 words: “Victim” and “Casualty”
In this sentence: “The whole building collapsed, but fortunately, there were no__” I chose “victims” but it’s wrong the answer is casualties. I don’t understand. Can u explain to me
Thanhks

Saturday, February 18th 2012

    Hi Kyu,

    There is a good explanation of the difference at this site:
    http://www.usingenglish.com/forum/ask-teacher/134713-casualty-victim.html

    The main difference is that “casualty” means that someone has been killed or injured, while “victim” does not necessarily mean injury or death.

    In your example, casualty is the better word because they are saying it is a good thing there were no deaths.

    Thursday, February 23rd 2012

thank you for your lesson!
it is very interesting )

Saturday, February 18th 2012

Saturday, February 18th 2012

Hi , my teacher: Emma, great job
1- most all students in the world watch and love your video and sure you.
2- I’m of them, sure
3- most day i open this website” http://www.engvid.com
4-I’m almost learn English from awesome teacher and awesome teachers
5- Almost your videos are very very very helpful, I think all your videos
6- All teachers in the http://www.engvid.com are awesome and number one between teachers.

Saturday, February 18th 2012

    Hi hudhayfah27,

    Excellent effort! I like seeing students using the lesson in their writing. To help you improve, I have fixed a couple of mistakes in your example. Here is a corrected version.

    1- Almost all students in the world watch and love your videos.
    2- I’m one of them, sure
    3- Most days, i open this website” http://www.engvid.com”
    *4-I’ve almost learned English from awesome teacher and awesome teachers
    5- Almost all of your videos are very very very helpful. I think all your videos are.
    6- All teachers in the http://www.engvid.com are awesome and number one among teachers.

    For number 4, when we put ‘almost learned’ it means we are close to learning, but haven’t learned yet. I think you may have meant something different. Here are two other examples: “I have almost perfected my English” or “I can almost speak English like a native speaker.”

    Thursday, February 23rd 2012

I think in quiz , the question :” i am almost home” should i put “at” before “home”.
Thanks for your sharing.
It’s perfect , never amost perfect , thanks

Saturday, February 18th 2012

    Hi Tom,

    For the word home, ‘at’ is not necessary. We can say ‘I am almost home’.

    For other places, ‘at’ is necessary. For example, ‘I am almost at work.’ If I wrote the sentence ‘I am almost work’ this would be incorrect.

    Bottom line, for home you don’t need ‘at’, but for other places you do.

    Thursday, February 23rd 2012

It’s very helpfull to me.
Thanks.
Best regards

Saturday, February 18th 2012

Thank you very much once again.

Thanks & Regards,
Sunil

Saturday, February 18th 2012

thank you may teacher Emma ^^ , the lesson was very useful …. but honestly there is something disturb me p_q , please help me if you don’t mind …okay look at this :
you was saying that:
*Almost all* = 99% however *most*= a large percent= between 80% to 99%

that means *Most* contains two meanings:
1- *Most* itself
2- *Almost all* too ?? in other means *Most* has the ability to take the same meaning of *Almost*??

so ,, my question is if i could use always *Most* rather than *Almost all* ??

Saturday, February 18th 2012

    Hi Hossin,

    ‘Most’ is a little less than ‘almost all’. You can imagine ‘most’ as 80%-98% and ‘almost all’ as 99%. Sorry for the confusion.

    Monday, February 20th 2012

      ooh no teacher Emma thank you so much ^^ , i understood it

      small suggestion : ===================
      do you mind if you make more lessons about Preposition cause i found it verry difficul ,by the way its just a suggestion okay

Hi Emma, it’s really helpful…

Monday, February 20th 2012

one again thank you so much for your lesson
i just have a question:
the last sentence of quiz” my son is 15 years old .he is almost a man .
so “almost” describe for ” a man”?

Monday, February 20th 2012

    Hi hoquocdinh,

    ‘Almost’ is an adverb meaning it can describe verbs, adjectives, adverbs and sometimes special nouns.

    When we use ‘almost’ with nouns like man, we are talking about change. If someone is almost a man or a woman, they are not fully a man or woman yet, but are a teenager, close to being a man or woman.

    Similarly, we can say ‘someone is almost a teenager.’ This means that they are not yet a teenager, but will be one soon.

    Thursday, February 23rd 2012

      thank you so much for your answer ,so clear!

      Saturday, February 25th 2012

    Wednesday, February 22nd 2012

      Hi Fatima,

      Thank you for your concern. I try to answer as many questions as I can as soon as I can. If a question has an easy, simple answer, I answer it right away. For other questions that require a longer response, I come back to those later when I have time to answer them properly. I answer questions first that have to do with the topic of the video, and then if there is time, I answer questions that are unrelated to the video.

      I find students’ questions very helpful in planning my next videos, so please keep asking them. For some questions, I may not answer on the comment board, but will make a video about them, especially if the answer is a very long, complex one.

      Thank you all for your support and understanding. I love to see that you are all so motivated to learn English, and I want to help as much as I can on your journey.

      Thursday, February 23rd 2012

        Hi there,
        How can I thank u 4 ur logical response?!
        U know I’ve seen the videos ever n never!!!
        Un4tunately,un4tunately,U tube is filtered in the country n this is the big problem of mine.I’ve got just u through the quizzes n comments!In fact I do believe that “Questions make Progress” hence,I wanna find the best n the correct answers as well as I can.
        Have a ball!

        Friday, February 24th 2012

Thanks Emma

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

It’s strange, I was sure “most” was more then 50%, for example 51%, 60%, 70%, 82%, 90%…

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

    I have seen some grammarians use over 50%, while others have used over 80% for ‘most’. The exact percentages are not so important. Rather, what is important is that you know ‘most’ means a majority.

    Native speakers don’t actually learn these words with percentages. We use them when we teach ESL, so students can recognize which is larger between some, most, and almost all. If the percentages are confusing, forget about them. As long as you know there is a difference in value between ‘almost all’, ‘most’ and ‘some’ and the ranking of these words, you will be fine.

    Thursday, February 23rd 2012

hi emma,well i understood lesons show me more grammatical skills of how to speak in english with pronounciation….most i appreciate u gave me methods i didn’t even watch lessons but i scored 8 out of 9 thsnks a lots keep it up…………

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

the lesson is interesting :)
thanx Emma <3

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

hi there.
I have a question (maybe it doesn’t have to do with the topic so I apologize)
what ‘s the difference between: “I like the most” and “I like most” and “I like more”.

thanks in advantage

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

Thank you for the lesson. Your explanation is very clear.

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

Why the word in first sentence of MOST is ‘most children’ not ‘most childrens’?

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

    Hi Yasmin,

    The word children is plural. It means more than one child. Therefore, we never need to add an ‘s’ to children.

    Child = 1 child
    Children = 2 or more

    Thursday, February 23rd 2012

Thanks Emma,Great lesson.
God blesss you,because you help me a lot.

Monday, February 27th 2012

the lesson was quiet interesting

Monday, February 27th 2012

Hi Emma! Another great lesson, thx very much!

I have a question for you: why is “I am almost finished” despite of “I am almost finishing.”

ie, why the first sentence is correct and not the second?

thx in advance

Monday, February 27th 2012

    In your example ‘I am almost finished’, ‘finished’ is an adjective, not a verb. We are not using the present continuous here.

    I am almost finishing sounds strange. It sounds like you are doing something, but not trying hard to finish and not making any progress finishing.

    The simple idea is when you use almost, do not use finishing.

    Saturday, March 3rd 2012

Most people in our country are illiterate. Are these examples correct or not. Thanks madam. hope you will reply me as soon as possible. Habib from Pakistan

Wednesday, March 14th 2012

    Hi Habib,

    Your use of almost and most was correct. There were some other mistakes though, so here are the corrections.

    1) I am almost at the office or I have almost reached the office.

    2) Jan almost died in the road accident.

    3) Almost all students are emotional and drive fast.

    4) Most of our classmates are great officers in the state.

    5)Most people in our country are illiterate.

    Monday, April 9th 2012

thanks emma to you I can say that I almost learned this language.am I wright correct?

Friday, March 16th 2012

    Hi Isabella,

    Your sentence is grammatically correct, but the meaning is a little strange. It means you came close to learning English, but you didn’t. A better alternative would be ‘I’m almost fluent in English’.

    Monday, April 9th 2012

      thanks, your teaching is easy to understand. Keep your style, more describe.

      Monday, June 3rd 2013

thank you for help me emma

Sunday, March 18th 2012

Dear Emma, I got 4 out of 4! Thanks a lot, Emma

Emma, if i put in ‘ almost all’in this question, is ok?

I am ( almost all ) finished.
It is ( almost all ) 3 o’clock.

Thank you teacher.
Your apply is appreciates. ^_^

Monday, March 19th 2012

    Hi Fong,

    We would use ‘almost’ in both of these cases, not ‘almost all’. We do not use ‘almost all’ with verbs. We use it with nouns with the meaning of close to 100%.

    Eg) Almost all of my friends went to the party. (Close to 100% of them).

    Monday, April 9th 2012

It was very useful to watch your video , thank you for your efforts for helping learners get better .
I have a question out of subject but I will ask it any way you can answer if you like (I hope you do ) or not.
Have you ever been acted in Hollywood before or there is an actress look like you ?

Tuesday, March 20th 2012

Greetings,
I would like to ask what is the difference between almost all and almost all of? Thank you in advance.
Irina

Tuesday, March 20th 2012

Thank a lot i am Fatima from Ecuador , now i can understand how can i use almost ,to learn english is very hard for me,but yours lessons are very clearly
Pelea would you correct me?

Tuesday, March 20th 2012

thanks a lot. it’s very useful. can i use that “most of people” like to go … is it different from most people? thank you for your answering.

Wednesday, March 21st 2012

    1) Most students like reading.

    2) Most of the students like reading.

    The two sentences above are very similar. We use ‘most’ when we are talking about things or people in general. We use ‘most of the’ when we are talking about specific things or a particular group of people.

    Eg) Most books have an index at the back. (general)

    Most of the books in my collection have an index at the back. (specific set of books)

you are perfact teacher.tnx

Friday, April 6th 2012

hey emma
is this sentence correct
“i almost watched tv.”
” i almost finish with my work”
and i want to ask one more thing. sometimes we use r using past sentence but it is of plural sentence..so what we use after it..had or have

Sunday, April 8th 2012

    Hi Renza,

    Sorry for such a late response. In terms of your first example, ‘I almost watched TV’, this sentence is correct. It means you were close to watching TV, but you didn’t for some reason.

    In terms of the second sentence, ‘I almost finish with my work’, this sentence is incorrect.

    The correct form of this sentence is ‘I almost finished my work.’ This means that you were close to finishing, but you didn’t.

    We could also say, ‘I am almost finished my work’. We use this when we are still doing our work, but will finish it soon.

    Sunday, April 29th 2012

thaks you

Monday, April 9th 2012

Wednesday, April 11th 2012

And I don’t feel sincerity.

Wednesday, April 11th 2012

dear Emmma
I m brazilian from limeira State of são
paulo and I ve followed your lessons
everyday, but trere is a question about contraction very dificulty for us brazilian , the contraction is ain`t,
could you explain us.
obrigado (thanks in portugueses)

Friday, April 13th 2012

    Hi Paulo,

    ‘Ain’t’ is actually considered incorrect grammatically and isn’t used in standard English. However, some people from certain regions may use it. I wouldn’t suggest using this contraction.

    It stands for ‘am not’, ‘are not’, and ‘is not’.

    Sunday, April 29th 2012

Thank Emma, I’m 8 out of 8.

Saturday, April 14th 2012

Wednesday, February 5th 2014

Great lesson. Thanks.
A few questions. Merriam-Webster lists “almost” as adverb AND adjective.
When “almost” describes a noun, isn’t it an adjective? A Wiki.Answers comments it is (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Almost_and_adverb_or_adjective), and I wonder why not?

Monday, February 17th 2014

Thank you for your lesson ……..

Wednesday, March 5th 2014

Hi, Emma. Thanks for your great lesson.
By the way, I have two questions.
You said ‘there’ was a noun.
But I think ‘there’ is an adverb.
Also, Does the word ‘almost’ describe the adjective phrase, ’26 years old’?
What do you think?

Wednesday, March 5th 2014
