Thank you Alex! It’s a great class. I was out of gas before your lecture and but it worth to study cause I know now more expression. It is out of the question that I quit to study english with you guys unless my computer is out of commision LOL!!
Pd Will be nice if you have videos with conversation between all the teachers (just thinking out loud)

    I want to talk to you

      I mean I want to improve my speaking skill, so if you want then we can talk.

What does it mean: …I gotta…?
Thanks in advance.

Profile photo of ivica ivica

    ‘I gotta’ is grammatically incorrect. It is more of a spoken form. If you want to say this with proper grammar, the equivalent would be, ‘I have got to’ or ‘I’ve got to’. In the spoken form, ‘got to’ is shortened to ‘gotta’ and the word ‘have’ is dropped.

    Here are some examples:

    “I gotta manage my money.”
    “I gotta obey the laws.”
    “I gotta move to a bigger house.”
    “I gotta impress my boss.”
    “I gotta brush my teeth.”

      Good explanation! Thanks!

      Profile photo of Alex Alex

    Hi Ivica,
    GOTTA (informal) = have got to = must.
    Examples:
    I gotta go.
    Do what you gotta do.
    I gotta tell you something.

Hi, Alex. I saw few days ago a Rebecca lesson about writing numbers in a text. So, she explaind that you use in a text “two” not “2” and “twenty” not “20”. In this lesson you wrote “20 seconds” and “2 days”. It means you are wrong or Rebeca. Just watch the video.

    Esti un prost.

    Profile photo of jackbauer55 jackbauer55

      I wrote to Alex. It means : don’t touch a key or mine.

      Profile photo of geotip geotip

    I never really thought about it, to be honest. Sometimes I write the actual numbers, and sometimes I write how it’s spelled.

…….
….
………
…………
……..

1.” Out with the old & in with the new ”
= get rid of old stuff n replace it with new stuff.

2.” Out with it ” = talk!/say it!/speak! .

3.” Out & out ” = in every way/complete .

Gooodluck 2 all;

    Thanks for the addition! Nice list!

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

These idioms are very interesting to learn! If I don’t know the meaning of “out to lunch” in this lesson, I will be absolutely confused when someone uses the idiom. Thanks, Alex!

Hey Alex,

Many thanks for your kind lesson and your efforts to teaching us..
Could you please clarify to me which one should I use “in, im, un, non” when it comes before the word such as [refrigerated-non refrigerated & correct-incorrect & possible-impossible..etc,] Is there a specific rule to use them?
Your prompt reply highly appreciated,
Thanks in advance

Profile photo of taharaad taharaad

    Yes and no. There are a few negative prefixes that usually precede certain letters. For example, “im” is used before adjectives that start with “p” or “m.”

    Impossible, impenetrable, imperfect, impatient, etc.

    Immobile, immature, immaterial, etc.

    However, even these are not consistent. For example, we say disproportionate and not misproportionate.

    So…yes, there are some rules that work a lot of the time, but not 100% of the time.

great lesson sir
you are rule of the roost ……

Thanks Alex, it was nice lesson.
Here is another Idiom with ‘out’
“Out of this world”
This expression is often used to describe delicious food. If you have a party and you serve a delicious chicken dish, your American friend might tell you, “This chicken is out of this world”.
