    Alex

      olan maulana

After watching your lesson I already corrected 80% for the first time.

anuproy

    Good job! Keep on studying.

    Alex

Thank you Alex .
Mastering present perfect is one of my goal . These kind of phrases help a lot .
I have always been confused with words like already , yet , still . Must they be used with present perfect or other tenses ? Do they have always the same meanings or do they change depending on the context they are used ?
Thank for your feedback .
See you

tsamp

    “Still” is the only word with multiple meanings. It can also be used as an adjective that means “motionless.”

    You can use still, already, and yet with other tenses, but they’re very common with the present perfect. Here are various non-present perfect examples.

    He still believes in Santa Clause.
    Didn’t I already explain this to you?!
    All of our luggage is already packed.
    Even if you fail, I’ll still love you.
    The internet’s not connecting yet.

    I hope this helps a bit.

    Alex

Probably it is possible to use two answers in 5th question of quiz(1st and 4th).

Promidor

    Hi Promidor) If Chad said “I’ve been at work”, then the first answer would be correct. But he said “I’ve been BUSY at work”.

    Slavik

    “How have you been?” doesn’t work because the answer is about the person’s activity, not their state/feeling. “I’ve been busy at work.”

    Alex

      Sorry guys, but do I get it right that the correct answer is “Where have you been?” The Key says “How have you been” is correct. Or am I hopelessly thick?

      Englisher93

        I wish I could edit my responses. So sorry. I made a mistake in my last comment. @_@ “How have you been” is the most common question to ask after saying something like “I haven’t seen you in so long!” The answer “I’ve been busy at work” is a little weird, though, so I understand the confusion. It’s a tricky question. Sorry, guys.

        Alex

I agree with Promidor

Cecca

Have you ever seen any useful lesson like this before?

James

    Thanks for the kind feedback, James. I appreciate it!

    Alex

I got 08 ☺ It was so useful lesson. I enjoyed each and every thing of it. Thanks a lot alex.

Annie

    Thanks, Anne. Allow me to correct your grammar…

    “It was SUCH a useful lesson.” (use “so” before adjectives and “such” before noun phrases)

    “I enjoyed each and every PART of it.” (this is the common usage)

    Alex

      Omg i love you alex. ☺ correct me every time. I m so glad ☺☺☺

      Annie

      Omg ! Thank you so much alex. ☺ i can’t express my feeling in words how glad you made me ….

      Annie

      Hahaha alex now correct me from this also ☺

      Annie

      Alex i found the solution that how will i improve my english, which is you stay with me every moment ☺

      Annie

        “I found the solution to how I will improve my English, which is for you to stay with me at every turn.” (this is a common phrase that has a similar meaning to what you’re trying to say here)

        Thanks for your enthusiasm.

        Alex

Thanks Alex. Why have I ever been here until this time? This lesson is very useful.

Nagihan Deniz

    Thanks, Nagihan. Welcome to EngVid! If I may correct your grammar…

    “Why have I NEVER been here until now?” (“until this time” works too, but it sounds slightly awkward and uncommon)

    Alex

      Hmm okey thanks for your correction.

      Nagihan Deniz

Alex, have you ever wondered about what would happened if you stop teaching us English? I really hope that this will not happen. Many thanks!

Slavik

    Thanks, Slavik. I don’t plan on stopping any time soon, so don’t worry! Here’s a quick grammar correction for you…

    “Have you ever wondered about what would HAPPEN if you STOPPED teaching us English?” (“Would” is a modal verb and must always be followed by a base verb…and the “if” clause in a second conditional sentence has to use the simple past form)

    Alex

      Thank you for correction, Alex!

      Slavik

      Thank you for THE correction :)

      Slavik

        You got it! No problem, Slavik.

        Alex

Hi Alex ,
Thank you so much for sharing some important rule of present perfect interrogative with us.

usahu272

    It’s my pleasure, usahu.

    “Thank you so much for sharing some important rules for the present perfect interrogative with us.”

    Thanks for checking it out, Lucas.

    Alex

Thanks Alex for this lesson, it was great…

marcos alexandre

    Always my pleasure, marcos. I’m glad you liked it. Thanks for your constant support!

    Alex

I agree with Promidor and Cecca that question 5 has 2 correct answers: 1&4 and #1 is more probable/appropriate.

Englisher93

Thanks Alex…..

hugowu

    Any time, hugowu. Cute pic!

    Alex

thanks a lot…
You are one of the best English teacher. ^^

Danny Han

    That’s very kind. Thank you. Please allow me to correct your grammar…

    “You are one of the best English teachers.”

    Alex

thanks alot teacher !

D008

    Any time. Thanks for clicking.

    Alex

Please …help me out….it’s too confusing.
My question is
The word ‘urgent’ sometimes it’s uses an and sometimes not???

Annie3089

    “Urgent” is an adjective which means “in need of immediate attention.”

    Please call me as soon as possible. It’s urgent.
    I’m in urgent need of a babysitter for tonight.
    I need you to work on this. It’s urgent. Hand it back to me in an hour.

    Basically, something that needs to be done NOW.

    Alex

Hello Alex. I loved the lesson. Thank you.

gonzaloanoeta2006

    I’m happy to hear that! Thanks for checking it out.

    Alex

Thank You, teacher….!!!

Jakub Alvarez

    You’re very welcome, Jakub!

    Alex

Hello Alex. I’ve watched all of your English video lessons since I found the EngVid website on the internet. Thanks, Alex and EngVid.com.

Júlio César L Sousa

    This still blows my mind. Thanks so much, Julio Cesar! I hope you feel like you’ve improved a lot during your time here.

    Alex

I have done all your quizzes. I have improved my grammar. Thanks Professor Alex

Luanda

    That’s awesome, Luanda. These kinds of messages make my day. Thank you kindly.

    Alex

10/10 Thanks a lot Alex.

JuliaF

    Nice job! Now put the information into practice.

    Alex

Hello Alex.
Thank you for your lesson.

Muad Abdiaziz

    No problem, Muad! Thanks for checking out the video.

    Alex

    Okay,thanks Alex it was so great lesson and interesting lesson.I love as like you interested for us.

    Muad Abdiaziz

      Thanks, Muad.

      “It was such a great and interesting lesson.” Don’t use “so” to emphasize a noun, “lesson” in this case. Use “such” to emphasize a noun phrase. Examples:

      such a great lesson
      such a nice car
      such an interesting book
      such an intelligent person
      such a professional
      such a hard worker

      I hope this helps!

      Alex

I got 8/10 :(

Sousou29

    That’s still a strong score. The goal is to use this information in conversation. Learning a language is not like learning mathematics or geography. It takes time and practice.

    Alex

      thank you Mr Alex for your supprt

      Sousou29

      Can you believe? Learning mathematics is like learning a language. It takes time and practice. :) Thank you and EngVid.com.

      TBezu

I did one mistake, it’s (how have you been?) but I reviewed the video I got it

Abadi1

    Not bad at all. :) Nice job! Good for you for going back and learning to fix your own mistakes.

    Alex

Alex, thanks for the lesson , it was excelent. I had 10 / 10 in the quiz.

PesoFrida

    Nice job! Keep on studying. Also, don’t forget the double L in the word “excellent.”

    Alex

Thanks Alex.
Your lessons are very enjoyable.

    Thanks a lot, shoikot. I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed this!

    Alex

Thanks for your great job… Your class is so efficient!!!

Eduardo Grillo

    Thanks, Eduardo. I’m doing my best to make my classes as efficient and loaded with useful information. At the same time, I don’t want them to feel overwhelming.

Yusuf OSman

    My pleasure, Yusuf. Thanks for studying with EngVid! I hope to see you again soon.

    Alex

Hello Alex, I hope to be welcom here,
I like your lesson, very interesting and I would like to speak like you.
I have done the quiz,I did one mistake and please, I would like to understand something.

What is the diffrence between ” Have you ever booked your flight” and ”Have you already booked your flight”?

Thanks

ivoire

    “Ever” implies “in your entire life.” You COULD say “Have you ever booked a flight” to ask a general question, but because the word “your” is in this sentence, it doesn’t really work. “Your flight” is very specific…a specific flight that you recently booked or have to book…so the best answer is “Have you already booked your flight?”

    Alex

Hi Alex!! 10/10!! You are great!!Thanks a lot!!

prineckete

    Nice work! Now put it into practice.

    Alex

I got 8 …tq for valuable class

v naga durga

    Nice work. Keep studying.

    Alex

Great Alex…

It was very useful…

joseagustin3500

    Thank you. The next step is to apply it to your life.

    Alex

Wow, what a great lesson Alex. Thank you. I have a doubt: Which one is correct: Have you ever been IN Venezuela? or Have you ever been TO Venezuela? are they both correct?.

If I made some mistake, do not hesitate to correct me. Thanks

estebanq77

    Both are technically okay, but “Have you ever been TO Venezuela” is much more common if you’re asking about a person’s life experience and whether or not they have visited a specific place.

    Alex

10/10 Thank you for the great lesson.

Benyapha

    Nice work, Benyapha. Keep on practicing!

    Alex

Thanks so much Alex. It is always a pleasure to attend your lessons. You and the other teachers are doing an awesome job. I really appreciate what you are doing and I thank you for it.

tiger888

    Thanks, tiger. We all have our own styles, and I’m glad our videos are resonating with English students.

    Alex

I think this kind of lessons must be classified as advanced lesson

basharh

    The present perfect is generally taught at high beginner/low intermediate levels. I think this fits well into intermediate/upper intermediate.

    Alex

      thanks Alex

      basharh

Hi Professor Alex,

I have a question.The right answer would not be,
Have already booked your flight. Instead Have you already booked your flight? I don’t get it.
Best wishes!

mribeirosax

    You need a subject when forming this question, so the “you” is necessary here. The placement of “already” needs to be BEFORE the verb or AFTER the object.

    “Have you already booked your flight?”
    OR
    “Have you booked your flight already?”

    Alex

I gotcha! We need to use the pronoun.

Thank’s!

mribeirosax

you are my man
thanx

mahmoudmk

    Any time. Glad to be your man.

    Alex

Thanks a lot, Alex.
It was such a worthwhile to me.

Mohammad21

    Thanks, Mohammad. Allow me to make a correction…

    “It was so worthwhile for me.”

    “Worthwhile” is an adjective. If you want to emphasize an adjective, use “so,” not “such.”

    If you WANT to use such, say “It was such a worthwhile LESSON for me.” Use “such” to emphasize a noun phrase.

    such a nice time
    such a good movie
    such an interesting book
    such a great experience
    etc.

    I hope this helps.

    Alex

      Wow!
      Thank you very much indeed Alex.

      Mohammad21

9 out of 10.not bad!

Rollyabastas

    Not bad at all! Keep practicing, Rollyabastas.

    Alex

Thanks a lot Alex

hoong7045

    My pleasure. Thanks for studying with EngVid, hoong.

    Alex

Hello Alex!
Thank you very much for this lesson :) Your explanation is very understandable… I have a question
In my country teachers teach us that “when” is not used with “have, has”. Is it correct or not?

Sherly07

    I’m not sure I understand the question, but here are some ways to use “when” with “have” or “has.” Note that you have to use “ever” for it to work, though.

    When have I ever said that?
    When has he ever told the truth?
    When have you ever done anything for anyone?!

    It’s not super common, but it’s possible.

    Alex

Thank you very much Alex. Your video is so illustrative. Every time I learn more useful things about English.

Medardo@17

    That’s awesome to read, Medardo. Thank you so much for your kind feedback. I like the word “illustrative”!

    Alex

Very useful lesson, although I have only hit 8/10. Thanks for lesson, Alex.

InaldoBNunes

    Still a nice job, Inaldo. Keep it up!

    Alex

have you ever been in India ?:)

sandeepmishra5387

    No, I haven’t, but I’d like to go there one day. I enjoy Indian food; especially samosas. :)

    Alex

I don’t completely watch your video then I took the quiz I got 9!!!

Shie

    “I didn’t watch your video completely” is the correct form here.

    That’s okay! Nice job. Now put what you’ve learned into practice.

    Alex

Thanks for your advises…it’s very usefull

Remyjose

    “Thanks for your advice.”

    “Advice” is not countable and it’s never used in the plural form in English. If you’d like to COUNT advice, you need to say “a bit of advice” or “a piece of advice.” Example:

    I have two pieces/bits of advice for you.

    I hope this helps!

    Alex

it’s my fist time here !Very good teacher haha , thakx a lot !! ops.. my result 9\10 !

somsong

    Any time. Thanks for checking out the lesson, and nice job on the quiz.

    Alex

I’ve been in the USA and Canada last week, not with an organized tour but simply renting a car and wandering in several States. It has been simply stunning and amazing, a great vacation for all the family!
Anyway my poor English has been useful thanks to Engvid’s lessons, that’s my opinion.
So thank you so much once again to all the bunch!

Canardo

    That’s awesome, Canardo! I love long road trips. I drove across eastern Canada with a bunch of friends many years ago. We just stayed at hotels and went wherever we wanted. It was an awesome adventure.

    Alex

Thanks Alex.. your way of teaching is awesome!!

adamsan

    Thanks a lot, adamsan. I’m glad you like it!

Wanna knowledge

    You’re welcome! Thanks for clicking and for studying with me.

    Alex

Thank you Alex! Your are a great teacher! Your lessons are very useful.

Night quest

    Thanks for saying that, Night quest. I truly appreciate it. Good luck with your studies.

    Alex

Hi my teacher. I don’t understand this example because of using the ”EVER” word in the sentence.
When has that EVER happened/been true?
Why we use the ”EVER”? We don’t use the ”EVER”, what will be?…

idoo

    You can eliminate the “ever” in this question and the meaning is almost exactly the same. “Ever” adds more emphasis and makes the sentence sound stronger/more powerful.

    Alex

Thanks for helping us, Alex.
Your lessons are very useful for me because I need a good english at the Police Academy. Thanks again ! ( 10/10 this quiz)

Treteag Cosmin

    Good luck at the police academy! My cousin did some training in one, and he said it was really tough.

rafilFR

    Thanks for checking it out, and welcome to EngVid! I hope you’ll enjoy your time studying with us, rafilFR.

    Alex

Hi Alex, When I say I want to leave early, can I say I want to go ahead?

zhuhito

    “I want to go ahead” only works in a very specific context. You can’t just say “I want to go ahead” to say “I’m leaving work early,” for example. If you’re with a group of friends and you’re going to the mall, though, you can use this if your friends stop somewhere else and you don’t want to stay there. “I’m gonna go ahead to the mall.”

    I hope this helps a bit.

    Alex

      Thanks for your kindly reply, but how to express very native that I want to leave early or I need to leave early.

      zhuhito

        “I gotta leave early.”
        “I need to take off early.”
        “I can’t stay long.”

        Any number of ways. :) Sadly, I can’t think of a specific slang phrase or phrasal verb to signify leaving early.

        Alex

Thank you,Teacher Adam!
I learned a lot of usage of the Present Perfect. :)
Your teaching is organized and clear.

But I have a question about below “when” question.
﹝When has that ever happened/been ture?﹞
Could you explain what situation we use the sentence?
Thank a lot :D

s86037cindy

    Haha. Another student who called me Adam. :) Don’t worry about it, cindy. It’s not the first time.

    The question you’re asking about could be used in a funny or sarcastic way. For example:

    A: Julia is on her way! She’s going to be on time! For real this time!
    B: Pfft. When has THAT ever happened?

    Alex

I am so sorry for typing the wrong name.
Thank you very much Teacher Alex.:)

s86037cindy

    Like I said, no problem. :) You’re not the first or last student to call me Adam. Haha.

    Alex

thanks ALex for this lesson although I only got 8
out of 10

osama9988

    That’s still good. The score is not really the important part, either. The key is whether or not you can use these questions in your daily life.

    Alex

Thanks a lot, teacher Alex, a complete lesson about present perfect expressions, some times a little difficult but a really good lesson.

angardiobel

    No body said learning was supposed to be easy. :) Haha. I’m glad you liked it, angar. Nice avatar!

    Alex

I think it’s also possible to use “Have you been there before?” to ask someone if he or she has experienced something or had a lifetime experience, and not only for places.
Something like that:
Guy 1: I yelled at my boss and our relationship has never been the same. Have you been there before?
Guy 2: Yeah, I’ve been there before…
Which means Guy 2, in the example, has also had the same experience.
Is that right?

Marcelo

    Yep! The common short answer to this question is just “been there.”

    Alex

Well, i need practice more. I only got 7 out of 10. Thanks Alex, Great Lesson

DanBritto

    Still a decent score. Keep on practicing and you’ll reach your goal.

    Alex

You re the best teacher. I love when you doing repeat pronuntiation

aminah adnan

    No problem! I’m glad you find them useful, and I’m always happy to help. Thanks for the feedback, aminah.

    Alex

Why has no one ever explained it easy that the difference between present perfect and present perfect continuous is simply just the verb + ing. Thanks Alex for a tremendous lesson.

nooralam

    There’s a little more to it than that, but yeah, the structures are:

    Present perfect: Subject + have/has (not/never) + past participle

    Present perfect continuous: Subject + have/has (not) + been + verb + ing

    Alex

      I am very glad to hear that especially got your reply in minutes, :)

      nooralam

        It doesn’t happen all the time, but I try!

    Alex

10/10 Thanks !

Luamy

    You rocked it! Nice job, Luamy. Now use this knowledge in your conversations.

    Alex

Is there any difference when we ask:

– have you done your homework YET?
– have you ALREADY done your homework?

Thanks in advance for your wonderful lesson.

Liana Lee

    Hey Liana. Good question!

    Depending on the person’s tone, they could have a similar meaning, but “yet” is used with the expectation that the person HASN’T done something…yet. You can use it to show that you’re annoyed too. “Have you done that yet?!” “What do you mean you haven’t washed the dishes yet?!”

    “Already” is usually used with the expectation that the person has completed the task. (USUALLY) It can also be used to show surprise. “Wow. You’ve already finished your homework? Nice job!”

    To get back to your two questions, depending on your tone, they could both have a similar meaning, but the expectation of the speaker is different.

    Yet = speaker doesn’t expect it to be done OR could be annoyed it’s not done

    Already = speaker expects it to be done OR could be surprised that it’s done

    However, just remember that if you speak ANGRILY, your “already” question above could also be used to show that you’re annoyed.

    Alex

      Thanks a bunch for your explanation. I am going to practice that. You are a great teacher. I have been following you and I always learn something new with you.

      Liana Lee

I like you method,thank u.
pls could you suggest the Anime for improving English?

Fess

    Nice! Thanks, Fess. For improving your English, I think the English dubs of most of the Studio Ghibli anime are really good. Movies like…

    Kiki’s Delivery Service
    My Neighbour Totoro
    Castle in the Sky
    Howl’s Moving Castle

    I’d check out any one of those. If you’re looking for a series, one of the classics with an excellent English dub is Cowboy Bebop. I actually prefer the English voice of Faye Valentine to her Japanese voice in that one.

Marcomas76

Hello,
I have once come across the following sentence:
//I’m so angry with my brother. He took my new football to the park yesterday, and now he’s lost it.//
I got the meaning, but what I don’t get is the sentence structure.
The author could have simply said:
… He took my new football to the park yesterday, and lost it. (which still conveys present result of past action)
Why did the author say (and now he’s lost it.), which gives the sense those were two different actions: I am angry with my brother because of two reasons: (1. Yesterday he took my ball without my permission) + (2. Today he’s lost it.)
Do native speakers say it this way in their daily conversation?
Thank you.

khaledwawa

KasiaZ

Dear Alex,
Have you considered making more videos on this topic? I have been here all the time seeking for help with my English grammar. I have been watching your videos since 2016. This lesson was great. I still wonder what magic have your brought in your videos that I see a lot of improvement in English writing skills. Good luck

Ashifa

I have learnt your lesson quite clearly. Yet, the practice has always been there to help master one’s skills. I think present perfect and present perfect continuous must have been taught side by side. Have you liked my suggestion? If there have already been a video on them side by side, it might have skipped from my eyes.
please correct if you find any errors in my writing.
Thanking in advance.

Ashifa

It might have been skipped*
There we go! I found one error myself.

Ashifa

To anyone see my comment .. Have you thought about watching all Alex’s videos ? 😄
He is the best teacher I have ever seen 😄
thank you so much , mr Alex

jamesfangjun

There is a quizz cuestion that can be interpreted as place one:
It’s been so long since I’ve seen you! ______________________________?
Chad: I’ve been busy at work.

I think the correct answer is: Where have you been
since Chad is answering with a location or place, more than how is he feeling, that would correspond to the question How have you been.

AndyDurango

The best video I’ve already watched about present perfect!! Thanks for your job!!
