      Thank you so much for this video , i learnt something new and so useful , just i have one question about the quiz , i have some doubts about the question number 4 , there are two verbs : i hate “to put” why the answer is i hate put and not i hate putting , i think when two verbs come successively the second one will be in present continuous . And thank you very much teacher!

    Friday, September 6th 2013

Hello Alex sir,Thank you for your lesson.May I ask you a question? What are the meanings and usages of necessarily(Av) and necessarily not(Av)?Good luck with your teaching!

Thursday, September 5th 2013

    “If you want to make it best,you should necessarily add some good points.”
    It’s an adverb of noun necessary : inevitable(can’t avoid,ignore),it is compulsive..
    :It is necessary to show you in front of media.But for that you don’t necessarily wear good clothes.”

    Friday, September 6th 2013

      Thanks for your appreciable help.It’s made me understand.Good luck with your english!

      Saturday, September 7th 2013

Thank you Alex. It’s very interesting.

    Hi, Artur! I wonder if English is your native language?

    Thursday, September 5th 2013

really you are great man ..but i wanna ask you about something !!
I can understand what you say and something in movies .. but i cannot speak english with speaker s this languages and this thing make me sad .. i want your opinion (if i will be better in near future and hooow )
thank you

Thursday, September 5th 2013

really useful thanks a lot:D

Thursday, September 5th 2013

thanks youré a great english teacher this lesson is very useful

Thursday, September 5th 2013


    Friday, September 6th 2013

Alex, thank’s a lot. While explaining the lesson was quite easy, but the quiz stressed my confidence a little )

Thursday, September 5th 2013

Hi Alex, I send you a warm greeting from Mexico city. I got 100 point in only 20 seconds, You have a nice way of teach, learn is too easy with your technics.

Thursday, September 5th 2013

Thanx Alex for the perfect explaining. Most of the learners are facing difficulties in putting words in order to get a correct sentence in English, Despite all the words you have mentioned are easy, it’s a little difficult putting them in order and understand what they really mean but, among your explaining and the time everything will become easier in the future….

Thursday, September 5th 2013

    That’s the idea. You can’t just watch the video and stop your learning there. The quiz helps too, and after that you should try experimenting with your own examples.

    Thursday, September 5th 2013

Great lesson with wonderful explanation

Thursday, September 5th 2013

Thanks Alex.

    Friday, September 6th 2013

hi alex,thank you very much for give me a good education.

Friday, September 6th 2013

    “for giving me a good education” would have been
    more appropriate. good luck.

    Friday, September 6th 2013

      i am so sorry

      Saturday, September 7th 2013

        you learn from your mistakes. Remember the more mistakes you make, the more you learn. there’s nothing to be sorry for or ashamed of in learning a Language.

        Sunday, November 10th 2013

Another good lesson. Thanks
The video lectures,provided by engvid,help a lot to philologists,linguisticians and semanticists.
Those who are really mean to what others are saying,are there words really reflect what they think,what the relationship between language and thinking , between meaning and words,for those engvid is an excellent site to start their odyssey.That’s all. :)

Hi Alex,i have a little problem with being.I have go through your lesson on “being and been”. But i still have a doubt.
Besides tenses,being is used with “temorary behaviour” like..You are being aggrresive.
But people sometimes use being like this
“Being cool is quite different from geeks who is blessed with high IQ but low EQ and underdeveloped social skills.Sparking attractions or being the life and soul of the party,that is precisely what being cool is about.”
being ???

Friday, September 6th 2013

    oh..typo !! It’s “…..who are blessed…”

    Friday, September 6th 2013

Please Alex would you explain us the same phrasal verb put with : about, away, forward, through, etc
Phrasal verb scare me. Do you speak French ? That is “ma bête noire! ”
I think that is most difficul thing in English.
Thank you vey much kind regards

Friday, September 6th 2013

I got a 90 cause of not gerunding a noun ha ha.

Friday, September 6th 2013

plz explain transformation of sentences

Friday, September 6th 2013

there are some other verbs using ‘put’ which are as follows put off – postpone or avoid someone by saying some excuse intentially, put down -write down,put out-extinguish, there are certain verbs which consists of the same meaning of the verb put up with-cope with,bear with. thanks master for having taken such a class like this

Friday, September 6th 2013

sir could you please clear the doubt i have,the doubt is about clauses- the book being made or the pancakes being made or the hydraulic motors being manufactured or someone being arrested how should these above given sentences be understood? what are the meaning of the sentences?

Friday, September 6th 2013

    The book which is being made.
    The pancakes that are being made.
    The hydraulic motors that are being manufactured.
    Someone whom is being arrested.

    As you noticed all are relative(adjective) clauses which have been converted into participle clauses.
    ‘Being + past participle’ can be used in the same way as a continuous passive relative clause.
    Hopefully,it helps you.

    Friday, September 6th 2013

      thanks bro ,for having shared the information regarding my doubts,as you wished the doubts have been able clear. thanks buddy

Thursday, April 28th 2016

Hi, Alex. I have a question. Well, the word etc. How to pronounce it right? As far as i know, perhaps i am mistaken, it would be correct to say – [ɪtˈsetrə]. But if i able to hear you right on your videos, you always say it differently.. if i am not mistaken,you pronounce it like {ik’setra}. Could you please throw some light on it?) thanks
