Hey Alex! I haven’t seen you in ages, and you have long hair now :)

ndes

    It changes all the time! Just depends on when I recorded the video and when it goes up on the site.

    Alex

      so funny

      titan2000

      thanks alot for all lessons Alex and your name my favourite player name his name is Alex de Souza :)

Alex, again you have long hair. For that reason I’ll tell you one joke about hair. Don’t feel offended, just a joke :)
One day wife & husband were going to attend the celebration. Husband wanted to comb his hair, but what was the problem there is that he didn’t have the hair except three whiskers on his head. Having this problem, he asked his wife how to comb the hair, bearing in mind that he had only three whiskers. She said to comb one whisker on the left, one on the right, and the third to leave in the middle. While he was combing it on that way, one whisker fell off. He asked her again how to comb his hair now when one is fallen off. She said to comb one on the left, and one on the right side. Again, while combing, whisker fell off. Now he asked her third time, “Oh Gosh, now I have only one whisker on my head, how the hell am I supposed to comb it?” She exclaimed, “I don’t care any more, go with unkempt hair. . .” Well Alex, with all due respect, this wasn’t in vain, correct my mistakes in typing, I know I made a lot, and enjoy the joke :)

Alex, here is something that I don’t understand, please clarify it for me. While I was doing some english test I made mistake, and dispite explanation, I still don’t understand it. The question was: Mr. Frank requests that someone “SEND””SENDS””SENT” the data by fax immediately. Immediately I eliminated third option SENT, but why is the answer SEND right? Why not SENDS?

englishstudent

    This is called “the subjunctive.” If you make a request or a recommendation with this form, you must use the base form of the verb. For example:

    I recommend that he send a message.
    I suggest that she wake up on time.

    It’s strange at first, but you’ll get used to it.

    Alex

thanks very much alex,Your lesson make me more confident

julia

    Alex

      dear Alex ,I think that your pleasant expression is more important than your hair length.^_^

      mahsa

      actually long or short hair suits you.

Hii Alex
First of all, I want to let you know I have sent you a friend request on Facebook amd I would really be happy if I could appear in your friend list…This lesson is indeed a good and too useful one to me..Your lesson always deserve appreciation because they are made in the context of practical,real life implementation.I got acquainted to some very common ‘pharasal verbs’ when I had taken a lesson on this topic explained by you.The usefulness of that is everyday when I open the newspaper up and read an article having hollywood news,gossip,interviews with the celebraties, I find they frequently use those words and as I know their meaning I don’t have any problem to extract the meaning out of their words..I consider you to my friend-philosopher guide and someone from whom I can improve myself,learn some new rules,idioms and many more things…hope we will be having a long journey ahead with fun toooo..

sona sharma

    For sure! Thanks for your kind words, and keep coming back for more content. :)

hi. i am a student at university in english teacher department. i like so much english but i couldnt speak english fluently. for that what should i do?

dilek

    Like anything else in life, learning a new language requires practice and trying to search for as much new information as you can. If you can surround yourself with native speakers, that would also help. Good luck!

    Alex

tnx for a gud lesson

xewax

    There is a mix of beginner and advanced lessons on the website. :)

    Alex

      I know Alex but to get a certificate of C1 or C2 level it’s not enough :) That’s why I’m asking for more advanced level lessons.

      xewax

Hello my dear and sweet teacher
I like your teaching rules and hand styles
teacher i have some problems and the active
how i can changes it
Example khalid kill the bird
teacher tell shortcuts in the lesson easy
I can use now Thanking you

Adnan khugyani from Afghanistan

    Do you mean changing the active to the passive?

    Active:
    Khalid killed the bird.

    Passive:
    The bird was killed by Khalid.

    Is this your question?

    Alex

Hi Alex :) You were born in Poland? I am from Poland :) I wonder why some ppl say ” if i was.. ” while others ” If I were ..’ Methinks that these both forms are equally acceptable despite some ppl claim ” If I were..” is the only correct one . However , i did come across on both them really often used depending on where I was at .

Robert

    Hi!, I,m not Alex, but I think I have the right answer to your question.

    “If I were” is called the subjunctive mood, and is used when you’re are talking about something that isn’t true or when you wish something was true. For example: “If I were invisible, I would walk into pop concerts for free”.Another example could be: “If I were you, I would studied harder.” This is a subjunctive sentence because I’m not you. It’s impossible for me to be you.

    “I was” is used for things that could have happened in the past or now,not unreal situation.
    For example:
    “If I was feeling sick,it’s good that I went home.”… It is possible or probable that I was feeling sick.
    I hope you find this explanation useful :)

ximenaroal

excellent explanation

viktortoribio

Hi Teacher Alex, I am very fond of your pronunciation. As native speakers, many teachers speak out (while teaching) in the style of the native, I don’t quite understand it. But you are great. You can make me understand what you speak (teaching.) I am Thai and I am very new for English. Rebecca’s and jon’s pronunciation sounds like yours. I know I have to understand whenever I listen to them. But at this time, I must listen to your teaching a lot. Thank you very much.

Enjoy your teaching,

Samrid

Hi, Alex! Thanks a lot for your lesson!

i haven’t seen this question in comments, so I’d risk to ask. Is it also possible to say ‘for ages’ like ‘I haven’t seen you for ages’.

An if yes, does it differ much from ‘in ages’? What’s more common?

Hi,

What is the difference between call and call up? From my point of view they are exactly the same.
I called Alex vs I called up Alex
There are other phrasal verbs where I couldn’t tell the nuance added by the preposition, for example help and help out. Alex, could you guide me through it?
