Hi Mr Alex.Thanks a lot for lesson, but I still have some questions. You mentioned that we can use “still” before an adjective, but can we use it with noun (e.g I’m still a student). And the second is: as I understood we can displace Present Perf.Progressive by “still”, Am I right?

Wednesday, March 7th 2012

Thanks a lot to all teachers. Very cool teaching… I’ve a confusion in using since and as, can you help me out?

Wednesday, March 7th 2012

thanks alex! good lesson. I was thinking that I know the differences with these words. But you said something new for me. It is where I can use “now” in a sentence. I have a question for you: the word “still” have a rule like that?. Or just I have to use after the verb to be or before the verbs how you show us in your video. Thanks in advance

Dear teachers,
you all are really doing an excellent job.
I am a student of social since (international relations, politics) there are many terms I don’t unrestrained. I am sure I am not the only one, that don’t understand the terms or vocabulary in the news Is there any possibility to give us lessen about political, international relations glossary. also most of the time it is very difficult to get the meaning or understand the words in the news papers.
thank you very much for efforts.
best regards.

Hi Alex,

Thank u for teach us.

Wednesday, May 16th 2012

I still live with my parents, am I wrong?)))

Saturday, May 19th 2012

When we can use To Do and To Be?
for example: Are you hungry or Do you hungry?

Saturday, May 19th 2012

    “Are you hungry” is correct

    “Do you feel hungry” would also be correct

    Monday, June 4th 2012

Thank you very much prof Alex!

Monday, May 21st 2012

Hi Alex,
At first thank you for your wonderful videos about english. For this particular video, I have a question for you.
“She still lives with her parents.”
“She’s still living with her parents.”
What is the difference between the above two sentences? What is the proper way to use them?

Once again thank you.

Thursday, May 24th 2012

    Hi Manoj

    Yours is a very good question. The two sentences are very close in meaning and are almost identical. Certainly in England most people would not see any difference. “She lives” suggests a more permanent situation than “She is living”. Because I live in England and always have done and will continue to live here I would say “I live in England”. If someone comes to England and knows they will be here for a year and will then leave they would say “I am living in England”. In the second case they might add “but I will be going back to Paris next year” or something similar. I think the same idea can be used in your sentences containing “still”.

    I am about to start a course in Teaching English as a Foreign Language so by the end I may be able to give you a definite answer! PS only replying as no one from EngVid has responded.

    Monday, June 4th 2012

      nice explanation, thanks a lot

      Tuesday, June 12th 2012

      It’s a very good explanation to a good question.

Can you help me !!!!!!!!

Tuesday, October 16th 2012

thankuuu. very easy to understand.

Friday, October 19th 2012

Hi Alex
u r such a nice person.
i got 10/10
can we use “STILL” before subject as like “NOW”.

Saturday, October 27th 2012

    I’m not Alex, and I apologize if non-teachers are not supposed to give replies here and I shouldn’t have done it. However, maybe this could help you a bit.
    So, if you use ‘still’ as an adverb, you can put it at the beginning of a sentence. E.g.:
    He can be crazy. Still, he’s harmless.
    ‘Still’ here means ‘however’, or ‘nevertheless’.

    Sunday, October 28th 2012

      It’s okay! You’re absolutely right. :)

      Monday, October 29th 2012

        Thank you for your appreciation!

i have a little prob on the usage of ”where”..i know how to use it with all other ways besides this rule please help me..
I wanna know how to use ”where” with these words and what the grammar rule is..pls give me a few examples of your own ones..

1 Due to the volume of emails we receive we are unable to respond to the emails where the answer can be found on our web site itself

2 If you have gone to a website where you have to create an account for yourself..

3 This procedure should be followed in cases where dishonesty has been alleged.

4 I heard a strange noise from the upstairs where the children were playing.

5 There is a stage in life where you can’t even hold a cup of tea.
