    Unfortunately, we don’t. Maybe on youtube?

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Please I beg Engvid: never subtitle your lessons. I progress in English thank’s to you. Unfortunaly I too often use subtitle. That is not good for me. Kind regards

      Profile photo of vilainpetitcrapaud vilainpetitcrapaud

      i am also like to see your video with subtitle, please try to give subtitle in future

      Profile photo of mohdshareef1234 mohdshareef1234

      on taskbar on youtube you can see the auto translation, it’s not right most of time , i think it will be better if Endvid can have traslation in each video

      its strange..its like a miracle but i saw the subtitles on internet explorer and mozilla firefox but i doent see they on google chrome it dependent

      Profile photo of jane122 jane122

    I think if we don’t have subtitles we are able to practice the listening skills in lessons. I wouldn’t desire subtittles unless it will be optional. By the way, it was a great lesson, thanks Alex and EngVid site.

    hi,you better understand the lesson without subtitles..try to watch the video again and again.so you can improve your listening skill.

Tanks Alex
Very good lesson

by the way I have this question

My brother,that lives in France, is a teacher.

here the word (That)is correct? if no why?
tanks again.

Profile photo of brala brala

    Yes you can!

    Look:

    Relative clauses add extra information to a sentence by defining a noun. They are usually divided into two types – defining relative clauses and non-defining relative clauses.

    Defining relative clauses

    Look at this sentence:

    The woman who lives next door works in a bank.
    ‘who lives next door’ is a defining relative clause. It tells us which woman we are talking about.

    Look at some more examples:

    Look out! There’s the dog that bit my brother.
    The film that we saw last week was awful.
    This is the skirt I bought in the sales.
    Can you identify the defining relative clauses? They tell us which dog, which film and which skirt we are talking about.

    Relative pronouns

    Relative clauses are often introduced by a relative pronoun (usually who, which, that, but when, where and whose are also possible)

    With defining relative clauses we can use who or that to talk about people.

    She’s the woman who cuts my hair.
    She’s the woman that cuts my hair.
    And we can use that or which to talk about things.

    The dog that bit my brother.
    The dog which bit my brother.
    It is also sometimes possible to omit the relative pronoun.

    This is the skirt that I bought in the sales.
    This is the skirt which I bought in the sales.
    This is the skirt I bought in the sales.
    In this sentence ‘skirt’ is the object of the verb (buy). ‘I’ is the subject. When the relative pronoun is the object, it can be omitted.

    The film we saw last week was awful.
    BUT The dog bit my brother. This is not possible because the dog is the subject of the verb, ‘bite’.

    Profile photo of thalinho thalinho

      Thanks
      I think you haven’t seen the comma before the relative pronoun.
      look it up in “Common Mistakes in English” part 1.

      Profile photo of brala brala

    It’s correct if you change “that” to “who” because you can’t use “that” in a non-identifying adjective clause.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      that’s what I taught, teacher =)

      Profile photo of thalinho thalinho

Hi Alex. You know my English can’t really get by without engvid.com ! Yeah I rarely leave my comments here it because of my laziness but I always watch your lessons, they are all very useful. I hope I didn’t make mistakes in my comment.

What does “Put it down mean”? I hear a lot but I don’t understand the meaning.

    I’ve heard “get on” used in a similar way as “get along with,” but mostly in British contexts.

    “Do you get on with your boss?”
    “Yeah, we get on okay.”

    Imagine it in a British accent. :)

Today I ain´t gonna get together with you, because I wanna get up fresh tomorrow to get ahead on my exams. If I hang out I won´t get by to do duties. Don´t bother we still get along each other. For one second I thought that GET ALONG meant someone who follow, trust or allow yourself to be take by anyone or ideas. Please,is there some phrasal verb for this? Thanks Alex !

Hi, one question, I’m not sure about the last question in the quiz, I’m not sure about using “When” instead of “What time” or something like that. I believe that one question with “when” is for asking days, I don’t know that you can use “When” for asking time, or, ¿Are you asking about time in the last question? Thanks for helping me.

I got 9 of 10! However I was confused when I was passing the quiz! I saw the form ‘getted’ of word ‘get’! Please explain me what’s it?

Profile photo of Lakrat Lakrat

    The option “getted” is a “trap” of the test, because If you don’t know that “get” is a irregular verb, you going to say “Oh yeah, the past verb of get is getted, because I only have to add “ed” and It’ll be a past verb.”

    The verb “get” is an iregular verb and its simple past form is “got” and not “gotted”.
