Thanks for the lesson!! I’m from Chile and I’ve always had problems with this topic, even if it seems to be very simple spanish speakers like me usually have problems with it. But now I think I’ll do it great when ordering food at a restaurant. Thank you.

A couple years ago I was confused when I could not order by myself in the restaurants. It looked like I have never been in the places like those. This lesson could help to many people be perfect in the same situation.


Thanks a lot, it’s very useful to know this expressions.

Hi Alex, and thanks for the great lesson.

Even though I’m a native speaker of English, I still have problems quoting the words in “the air” while speaking to people. I’ve heard they call it “Air-quoting” or something, when we’re being sarcastic, so yea, uhm, I think it would be nice and helpful to many students, including native speakers like me, if you do a lesson on “Air-quoting stuff when we speak” … I appreciate that, thanks a lot.


    Interesting suggestion. I will keep it in mind. Would anyone else like to see this lesson?

Hi Alex
Actually , my question wouldn’t be about this video , but I’am eager to ask you about an easy way to memorise the use of The Perfect Tenses , I already have the rules and I learned them hundreds of times , but whenever I write something in English , or when speaking , I forget to use the perfect tenses ,especially the Present perfect , so if you like , do me a favour and make us a video about an easy way to memorise Perfect Tenses , or send me an E-mail containing the reply , And Thanks in advance Alex :)

Hi Alex, thank you! Nice tips!

I have a doubt.
“you must protect your child, you’re responsable for them”
In this phrase is correct use “them” when we don’t know if we are talking about a male or a female?

Betinho Floripa

    Technically, you should say “you’re responsible for him or her” because “child” is singular, but “them” is much more practical and useful in this case. Your sentence is fine.

“Do you accept?” is polite English or not?
I use to talking with customer?

Alice Poon

    Do you accept what? It depends on the context. If you are a customer, you can ask the cashier “do you accept credit?” or something similar.

Dear teachers, did you know that The Speed Of Light is not the fastest velocity? Scientists have discovered particles called neutrons which are faster than Light. The scientist Nikola Tesla knew it before 80 years, he said: “All of my investigations seem to point to the conclusion that they are small particles, each carrying so small a charge that we are justified in calling them neutrons. They move with great velocity, exceeding that of light.” I know this doesn’t have anything to do with your lesson, but I just wanted to tell you, in case you didn’t hear this. Nikola Tesla, the greatest brain ever :)

Hi, Alex. Thank you I want to know what is the difference between million and millions ? When can I say million and when can i say millions? please e-mail me to know the answer. thank U in advance.


    A million is singular, and millions is plural. For example, “A vacation like that would cost a million dollars!” is much different than “A vacation like that would cost millions of dollars!” (many millions)

    However, when you know the exact value, just say it…like “two million,” “three million,” “one million,” etc.

In the quiz question – “Hmm. I think __________ the chicken alfredo.” what is wrong in using “I’d have” here?

Profile photo of sheldoncooper sheldoncooper

    You’re using the past tense, or a conditional if you used “I’d have” in this case. I suppose you COULD use it if you were saying something like, “If I had the money, I think I’d have,” but it’s not a common situation.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Got it.Thanks for the reply.
      Now tell me if the following sentence is correct or not?
      “If you haven’t replied then I would have never understood this.”
      In the above sentence I am doubtful about “haven’t”.What if I used “hadn’t/wasn’t/won’t”.I am not getting the difference here.


        “If you hadn’t replied…” is the correct sentence here. You need to use the past perfect form, because you’re talking about the past in the past.

        “hadn’t” is used with the past perfect, and needs a past participle after it.

        “wasn’t” is used with the simple past. It’s just the verb “to be” in the past.

        “won’t” is the negative of “will.” It is used with the simple future.

    You are clearly very fluent in spoken and written English but it is important to be correct and grammatical when you are writing.

    “Wanna”, “gonna” and “’cause” are not acceptable contractions in written English. You must write “want to” “going to” and “because” in full. Apostrophy s (‘s) indicates possession or elision; “thanks ” is the plural form of thank.


i like your teaching style . thanks you alex

Hello Alex! Thanks for your lesson! It’s very useful! But I have one question. Why did you say “A coffee, please”, “AN orange juice” and “A tea”. As I know all these nouns are uncountable, so I was taught that we can’t use an indefinite article with them. And also I have a question from the Quiz (from the lesson about countable and uncountable nouns). Would you like _____________ pizza? SOME or A FEW. I wrote SOME because pizza is also non-count (as I thought). But it was a mistake… And I don’t understand why.
