YEAAAAHHH 10/10 , thank you a lot teacher great lesson

Tuesday, August 22nd 2017

    Nice job! Thanks for checking out the lesson, mayco.

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    Great job !!!

    Thursday, August 24th 2017

      Any time, Richard. Thanks for studying with me!

      Saturday, August 26th 2017

thank you.

Tuesday, August 22nd 2017

    You’re welcome!

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Thanks Alex. I’ve been studying English for months.

Tuesday, August 22nd 2017

    That’s great. I hope it has been going well.

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

Terimakasih Alex

Tuesday, August 22nd 2017

    If that means “Thank you,” you’re welcome!

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

      yeah that mean THANK YOU in INDONESIA

      Monday, August 28th 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    Good job! Keep on studying.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    “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.

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    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”.

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    “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.”

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

      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?

      Thursday, August 24th 2017

        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.

        Saturday, August 26th 2017

I agree with Promidor

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

Have you ever seen any useful lesson like this before?

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    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)

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

      Friday, August 25th 2017

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

      Friday, August 25th 2017

      Hahaha alex now correct me from this also ☺

      Friday, August 25th 2017

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

      Friday, August 25th 2017

        “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.

        Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    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)

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

      Hmm okey thanks for your correction.

      Thursday, August 24th 2017

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!

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    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)

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

      Thank you for correction, Alex!

      Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

      Thank you for THE correction :)

      Saturday, August 26th 2017

        You got it! No problem, Slavik.

        Friday, September 1st 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    It’s my pleasure, usahu.

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

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

Very well. Nice and prepared teacher.

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    “Very good” in this case. Thanks, AleCla.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

It has been a useful lesson!

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    Thanks for checking it out, Lucas.

    Tuesday, August 29th 2017

Thanks Alex for this lesson, it was great…

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

Thanks Alex…..

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    Any time, hugowu. Cute pic!

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    “You are one of the best English teachers.”

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

thanks alot teacher !

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    Any time. Thanks for clicking.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    “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.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Hello Alex. I loved the lesson. Thank you.

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Thank You, teacher….!!!

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    You’re very welcome, Jakub!

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    *high five* Thanks, superstar.

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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.

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

10/10 Thanks a lot Alex.

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    Nice job! Now put the information into practice.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Hello Alex.
Thank you for your lesson.

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    Thursday, August 24th 2017

      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!

      Saturday, August 26th 2017

I got 8/10 :(

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

    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.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

      thank you Mr Alex for your supprt

      Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

      Monday, August 28th 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

    Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

Thanks Alex.
Your lessons are very enjoyable.

Wednesday, August 23rd 2017

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

Very nice t-shirt :)

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

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    “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?”

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    Nice work! Now put it into practice.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

I got 8 …tq for valuable class

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    Nice work. Keep studying.

    Friday, August 25th 2017

Great Alex…

It was very useful…

Thursday, August 24th 2017

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

    Friday, August 25th 2017

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

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    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.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

10/10 Thank you for the great lesson.

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    Nice work, Benyapha. Keep on practicing!

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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.

Thursday, August 24th 2017

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

    Friday, August 25th 2017

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

Thursday, August 24th 2017

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

    Friday, August 25th 2017

      thanks Alex

      Friday, August 25th 2017

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!

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    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?”

    Friday, August 25th 2017

I gotcha! We need to use the pronoun.

Thank’s!

Thursday, August 24th 2017

you are my man
thanx

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    Any time. Glad to be your man.

    Friday, August 25th 2017

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

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    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.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

      Wow!
      Thank you very much indeed Alex.

      Tuesday, August 29th 2017

9 out of 10.not bad!

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    Not bad at all! Keep practicing, Rollyabastas.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Thank you very much teacher.
I started to learne English.

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    You’re welcome! Thanks for checking out my video and for studying with EngVid, Akiralto.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Really nice lesson. Thank you.

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    Any time, Marcos. I’m glad you enjoyed it.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

I get 100

Thursday, August 24th 2017

    “I got 100.” Past tense because the quiz is now finished. :) Nice work.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Thanks Alex for this interesting lesson. I really enjoyed it

Friday, August 25th 2017

    That’s cool. Thanks for your support and for studying with me.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Thanks Teacher! I got 10/10.

Friday, August 25th 2017

    Well done. Keep it up and put what you’ve learned into practice.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Good lesson. Thanks

Friday, August 25th 2017

    Any time, adessi. I’m glad you liked it.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Thanks a lot Alex

Friday, August 25th 2017

    My pleasure. Thanks for studying with EngVid, hoong.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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?

Friday, August 25th 2017

    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.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Friday, August 25th 2017

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

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Friday, August 25th 2017

    Still a nice job, Inaldo. Keep it up!

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

have you ever been in India ?:)

Friday, August 25th 2017

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

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Friday, August 25th 2017

    “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.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

Thanks for your advises…it’s very usefull

Friday, August 25th 2017

    “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!

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Friday, August 25th 2017

Thank you Alex

Friday, August 25th 2017

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

    Monday, August 28th 2017

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!

Saturday, August 26th 2017

    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.

    Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

    Monday, August 28th 2017

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

Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

    Monday, August 28th 2017

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?…

Saturday, August 26th 2017

    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.

    Monday, August 28th 2017

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)

Saturday, August 26th 2017

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

    Monday, August 28th 2017

Great lesson, Alex. Love the way you teach.
Thank you very much. Got 10/10

    The lessons will definitely help! It takes daily practice, though.

    Tuesday, August 29th 2017

Hope my best and great teacher mis valen will help me to learn english better

Sunday, August 27th 2017

i have got 6/10 in one day lesson

Sunday, August 27th 2017

Hi, Alex, my English is not strong, and I haven’t seen your lessons before, this is my first lesson, it’s useful to me, thank you very much!!!!

Sunday, August 27th 2017

    Welcome to EngVid, Julia! I’m glad it was useful, and I hope I’ll see your comments in future videos!

    Monday, August 28th 2017

Yeah i got 10/10. This is first time for me. Before this i don’t know engvid.com. I so regret why i know this so lately, it’s so sad :( And then i want to say thanks so much Mr. Alex about your lesson. it’s great for a beginner likes me hehehehe

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

Sunday, August 27th 2017

    “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.

    Tuesday, August 29th 2017

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

      Thursday, August 31st 2017

        “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.

        Friday, September 1st 2017

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

Sunday, August 27th 2017

    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?

    Monday, August 28th 2017

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

Sunday, August 27th 2017

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

    Monday, August 28th 2017

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

Sunday, August 27th 2017

    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.

    Monday, August 28th 2017

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

Sunday, August 27th 2017

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

    Monday, August 28th 2017

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?

Sunday, August 27th 2017

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

    Tuesday, August 29th 2017

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

Sunday, August 27th 2017

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

    Tuesday, August 29th 2017

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

Sunday, August 27th 2017

    Thanks! I think it’s one of the most important parts of learning a new language, so I try to focus on it in my videos.

    Friday, September 1st 2017

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.

Tuesday, August 29th 2017

    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

    Tuesday, August 29th 2017

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

      Tuesday, August 29th 2017

Tuesday, September 5th 2017

    That’s awesome! Thanks a lot, valedas. I tried to make it as clear and practical as possible.

10/10 Thanks !

Tuesday, September 5th 2017

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

    Friday, September 8th 2017

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.

Tuesday, September 5th 2017

    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.

    Friday, September 8th 2017

      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.

      Saturday, September 9th 2017

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

Tuesday, September 5th 2017

    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.
