    You’re very welcome. Good luck to you in the new year.

    Alex

Merci Alex. Je ne suis pas encore totalement “hors course” (dead, finished, missed, …) en anglais, grâce à toi.

beernaard

    J’espere que tu vas continuer ameliore tout les journees! :) Happy new year!

    Alex

Many thanks, it’s a fruitful lesson. 🌹

hassouna

    You’re very welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed it. :)

    Alex

Thank you Mr. Alex for a good lesson. These metaphors can help greatly to increase one’s vocabulary. Now I can say “…my internet connection is being temperamental”.

Alex-1956

    Exactly! :) Internet connections can be very emotional.

    Alex

I would have thought you would use phrases like:
‘the computer was knackered’
SYNONYMS
broken, damaged, faulty, defective, unsound
not working, not functioning, non-functioning, malfunctioning, in disrepair, inoperative, out of commission, out of order, not in working order, broken-down, out of kilter, down.

Even phrases like: on the blink, or words like “Buggered” & my favourite, “Pakarued”.

Drew

    “Knackered” is great too! I was using my North American bias, as that word in particular is more common in the UK.

    Alex

I had a cellphone in which the software came with a good english dictionary, but in the measured that time was going away, the software started to buggy and was going away together as well, the dictionary. In a beautiful day I decided that that cellphone was dead. So, I bought a new.
Thanks for these new words Alex.

Roberto

    You’re welcome! Thanks for checking out the lesson. Just one note: “buggy” is an adjective, not a verb. You can say “The software was buggy” or “the software started to be buggy.”

    Alex

Thanks Mr Alex it’s completely very simple with me.

Muad Abdiaziz

    No problem, Muad. I’m glad it was easy to understand.

    Alex

Thanks a lot:)

Fatima Zohra Guenfoud

    You’re very welcome. Thanks for studying with EngVid, Fatima. :)

    Alex

the lesson is very usefully, I usually saw the sentence in this clip when I see movies and read paper on internet. Thank Alex

nguyen van long

    You’re welcome! Just a reminder that “usefully” is an adverb, which means you usually use it after a verb. You were looking for the adjective “useful” in your first sentence.

    “The lesson is very useful.” :) Have a great day!

    Alex

Thank you Alex(90)

Thanks, it was an amazing video. Now I can express my disappointment with electronics devices.

Sweetney

When I was a kid, my sister and I were playing games for hours until the computer was fried.

Astri

    That happened to my Nintendo when I was a kid.

Teacher Alex,
I am so glad I have found engVid! I need to improve the English I learnt when I was in the capital of Mexico. BTW, at that time my teacher was a canadian citizen
God bless you!

cesar chavez

Thank you Alex for your effort, wishing you grateful festive season:)

Rammal

Being honest, I hate new technologies. As you said, they´re making us slaves. We think we lose a loved one when our phone is done.
Thanks for your lesson, Alex!!
