Could you hold on for a minute? I’m leaving a comment.
Don’t let someone to hold you onto depression. Control your feelings and emotions.
I don’t hold anything against your way of teaching.
I can’t hold in my gratefulness to your lessons, Alex!
I’ll never hold back the truth from people who deserves to know it!

H2H0929

This lesson is which i wanted. thank you. and I SUGGEST TO YOU IF POSSIBLE COULD YOU MAKE LESSON ABOUT WHICH NATIVE SPEAKERS USE DAILY BAD WORDS LIKE I DON”T GIVE A SHIT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

Yusuf

    This would be an interesting topic for a video lesson, Wicked words. But could it be possible?

    Regards

    Regino

      I think it is possible. have you ever watch Ronnies lessons she is making lessons even she made about sex and so on.
      Regards

      Yusuf

        Remind that this site is open to everybody, even children! Alex is a gentleman :)

Thanks Alex, I completely understood the lesson, 10/10. Could you please explain to me the difference between thought and thinking?

RobinScallop

Interesting lesson on phrasal verbs Alex. Could you please pla a lesson on the causative pattern?
Have + someone + do + something. I would really appreciate it.

Have a great weekend!!!

My best Regards

Regino

Hi Alex! Your video-lesson has been interesting and useful as usual.I got easly 100 but, as you know, the usage of the phrasal verbs when a person has to use them in a quick dialoge can cause a great deal of problems . Usually the right particle doesn’t come in time or worse it comes wrong creating an embarrassing mess.
It could sound a bit weird but I would like to see a lesson about handworks; terms and verbs connected to them.
Thank you Alex!Don’t give up! You’re a great teacher.

EmperorArthurII

Thanks Alex . I am going to give a presentation in English, but I fund out that I have problem to recall proper words for starting/finishing presentation and when I am changing slides. Most of them are simple words that are used as fillers and they help to make a explanation smooth and fluent. I wrote some of them for myself for example : in order to , first of all , finally , on the other hand , unlike , also … as well
And those kind of words that we use to explain diagram , charts , graphs etc.
Could you please help me and lots of other students with this issue?

MorVafa

Hi Alex,

Can you please make a lesson about phrasal verbs we use often on gym ,like pull ups ,push up ….

Thanks forward :)

Med Saad

I am so proud of myself I got 100%.Thanks Alex your explanations is just awesome.

brunusBrasil

Hi Alex! Very nice video.I loved it. But I feel much difficulty to undersand how to use phrasal verbs. Could you explain the difference between, for example: “Turn on the ligths!” and “Turn the lights on!? I appreciate your help.

Jaderson

    Both are correct. In some cases transitive phrasal verbs can be split and the object can be inserted between the verb and the preposition. This split does not alter the meaning of the sentence in any way.

    Ricardo PD

      Thank you very much Ricardo!!!It’s very useful! God bless you!

      Jaderson

Hi Alex! I have a suggestion.
How about a lesson about words with the same/similar meaning and the right circumstances to use them? For example: When should I use little instead or small; other instead of another? Someone/Somebody; No one/Nobody?

audrysilva

HiAlex! I see I can reading English good but I can not speaking English. Can you show me a way to speaking English, please?

Annanguyen

    I can reading English good -> I can read in English well. / I am good at reading English.

    I can not speaking English -> I can not speak English. / I am not good at speaking English.

    When you use Helping Verbs(Can/Do/Will/…), you should put a Basic Verb after helping verbs.

    Way to speaking English -> Way to speak English.

    Your English will be getting better soon.
    Good Luck!

azad1982

Thank you Alex about this video, I’ve misunderstanding to use this phrasal with some tenses. It’s better to show us more examples.

Dear Alex,
This is me, Rion again. Thank you for this useful lesson. Could you possibly make a lesson about using “fun” and “funny” in sentences? I always get confused in using these two words as they can be both used like adjectives with the similar meaning, and my problem is that I have no idea when to use “fun” or “funny” correctly.
Thank you in advance and wish you all the best!
I’m looking forward to your support.

Best regards,

Rionvu

sincerly.

halimblack

Great lesson! I got one mistake no.3/hold back/Thank you.

JanaJ

Hi! How’s everything?

I’d like to ask what’s the difference between “Hold on to something” and “Hold onto something”

Example: The way to prevent fear from becoming panic is to hold onto your good sense.

The team hold on to first place with a 4-3 win last night.
Thanks

henry19

Keempol Dimaranan

Another great lesson Alex, thanks so much!

I have a question that confuses me: “Does anybody have any ideas?” I have read it on the book that I’ve used to teach.Is this question correct? isn’t it “has” instead of “have”? because anybody is singular, right? Is it the

kulet_1010

    Is it the book has mistaken?.. I need your help Alex, thanks in advance..

    kulet_1010

      Hello!
      I think the question is correct because of ‘Does’.
      Does(helping verb) + anybody + have(basic verb)…
      Ex.) Does Sue wash the dishes?
      I hope it will be helpful!

      Matilda03

      Hi ..

      I see it’s correct because if we use singular form with the verb ( Do ) it will be ( Does ) so the other verb in the same sentence should be back to basic form ( have ) !!

      Brga

      i’hv used to teach.
      this sentence is correct.
      look at structures,
      I,we,you they, PN+have+3rd form of verb.
      he,she,it,sn+has+3rd form of verb.
      best wishes

      innocent khan

Thanks for your lesson i will learn more.

selams

Hold on hold back hold in hold onto hold against ……….great

baldeep

Thanks Alex, we cannot hold on till your next lesson .. REGARDS : )

Brga

Hi Alex and everyone. I liked this lesson as usual (then, I really like it;). Pretty important for foreigners to learn phrasal verbs.
And: when you ask for ideas to develop, I have written some months ago about the possibility to repeat some of the first lessons regarding they are not recorded well (sometimes we are in trouble to hear it and the teachers are not actors, you are teachers ans sometimes tou did mistakes or the the discours was not fluent).
Thank you for paying me attention and you are the best!!!!

greenvelvet

Thank you Alex. I got 9/9.

Hey Alex!! Hey everyone!! I really enjoy watching videos on engvid but there is something inconvenient about this website. I don’t receive any notifications upon receiving comments/replies as I log in. I have to enter the video I’ve already watched to find out if I have any replies.

Hello Alex; your lessons very helpful in our future study:)

Tomas1010

Hello, Alex!
I watched this video so many times because I couldn’t make out what you said at first. So I watched and listened over and over again. Eventually, I got it and I was tickled pink and I couldn’t hold back the feeling. That’s why I leave the comment. I frequently watch your videos to learn something good to study English by myself. Thank you so much!!!
