    Yes they are! It’s why I put them in this video. As a language student myself, I know that all I want are the common words and phrases that people use on a daily basis, so I’m not lost if I hear them used in public.

10/10 Good job sir! I like your courses

Monday, June 25th 2018

Hello Alex . i’m wonedring if i could use these expressions in formal discussions

Tuesday, June 26th 2018

    Hallo Oume, Alex of course can correct me, but the expressions as “weight the prons and cons”, demand – supply, cause – effect, trial – error might be harmlessly used in buseness talks. At least i did not meet any rejection from business partners when used these expressions

    Wednesday, June 27th 2018

      Thank you :)

      Wednesday, June 27th 2018

Quizzes are about trial and error.. Is is correct?

Wednesday, June 27th 2018

Thanks, Alex.you are the best English teacher I’ve ever seen

Thursday, June 28th 2018

Thanks for the good education :)

Thursday, June 28th 2018

Tuesday, July 3rd 2018

Thursday, July 5th 2018

Thanks Alex .

Thursday, July 5th 2018

Hello Alex, Thank you for this great lesson. I remember a lesson on engvid with a word combination : ” The dos and the don’ts “. I kept this expression in mind.
In the last sentence of the quiz I didn’t understand “in ages”. Can you explain me this expression in the sentence: I haven’t had fish and chips in ages! Have a good weekend. Best regards. Marie-Claude

Friday, July 6th 2018

    in ages means several years

    Saturday, July 7th 2018

    Hello, Marie-Claude. I think the expression “I haven’t had fish and chips in ages” means that whether I have never had fish and chips in the entire of my life or I haven’t had fish and chips since long time ago. Anyway, that what I have understood.

    Monday, July 9th 2018

      Thank you for your reply. I think it’s rather “I haven’t had fish and chips long time ago. May be Alex will answer questions.

      Tuesday, July 10th 2018

Thanks Alex.

Hi Mr. Alex, I hope you can help me out with this matter. I have this message and I`m not sure about using the correct form of the verbs. I hope you can explain your answers as well. Here`s the message:
Hi, Emilie:
I have always remembered your wonderful classes in Rome, and when I (1 see) you on FaceSpace yesterday, I (2 decide) to send you a message to say hello. We (3 not see) each other in years. So let me tell you what I’ve been up to. In 2006, I (4 move) to Canada, and I`m living in Montreal right now. I`m still studying English, and I recently (5 enroll) in a great language school here. I (6 travel) a lot in Canada and the US, too. I (7 be) to Toronto, Halifax, Boston and New York. I (8 go) back home to Rome to visit my parents last September. Sorry I (9 not call) you then! Do you think my English is better now? I`m going to keep studying till I can speak as well as you! After more than three years here, I (10 fall) in love with this city. Let`s keep in touch.

Thanks a lot,

P.S: Can you explain your answers?
