Hello Alex! Thank you for the awesome lesson. It is so interesting to learn new using of familiar grammar constructions.
You are the best! You are constantly helping people to improve their English.
I got 100 percent on the quiz due to your clear explanation.
I spent some time to find difference between first and fourth answers on question 5 :)

Hm, I think my third sentence in comment above is not correct. Maybe “It is so interesting to learn ABOUT new using of familiar grammar constructions” will be better?

9/10… The last one was chosen incorrect, but I cannot catch the meaning. I chose a pre-arranged future plan and was sure it was right. I would use present continuous myself, I agree with that! But I cannot understand why is it a temporary action/behaviour?

Profile photo of Diana Arkovika Diana Arkovika

    Haven’t you read? “While it is a future plan, it’s also something THAT IS NOT PART OF THIS PERSON’S REGULAR BEHAVIOR”

    Hello Maria,

    I would like to practice my English with you. I know the Russian language too. So I think it would be better for us to improve our English together. Here is my e-mail: seferova.r@gmail.com. If you’d like to communicate with me too, e-mail me.

    Best Regards,

      Hi
      you are right
      the people use the Present Simple tense always when
      the action is general
      *I am not fat.
      the action happens all the time, or habitually, in the past, present and future
      *The Moon goes round the Earth.
      the action is not only happening now
      *John drives a taxi.
      the statement is always true
      *I live in Iraq.

    hi, RussMaria.

    Profile photo of titim2001 titim2001

thank you very much

Profile photo of houssam.ing houssam.ing

We also use the present continuous if we’re talking about things that happen all the time and with some frequency. For example, the train is leaving on Friday at 6pm.Or… The plane is flying at 9 am on Monday. I mean schedule of something.Alex, am I right? thanks for your reply

Profile photo of RussMaria RussMaria

    You can certainly say those things, but for schedules, it’s more common to use the present simple. “The train leaves at 6.” BUT! If you use the present continuous, it’s not a big deal. Every native speaker will understand your meaning, and they speak that way too.

Good lesson Alex. I’ve made my mistake here.
He’s always helping others. Because a word ‘Always’ confused me very. Why not to say ‘He always helps others’?
Thank you.

Profile photo of legless-rover legless-rover

    You can say that as well. Present simple is used for habits, but you can add the emphasis of repetition by using the present continuous as well.

    “He always helps others.” (correct)
    “He’s always helping other.” (also correct with more focus on him repeating the action)

    I hope this helps! Good question.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Hi Alex! Thanks for a useful lesson! Please, help me to find out why I answered the last question incorrect??? I thought , I was sure it was a pre-arranged future plat, but it wasn’t. I still have the question… WHY?

Profile photo of Diana Arkovika Diana Arkovika

    “He usually stays home on Thursday nights…” This is a regular behavior. “…but tonight, he’s going out…” This is a temporary action/behavior.

    Profile photo of Slavik Slavik

      You got it. Basically, “He usually does this…but TONIGHT…he’s DOING this.”

      In the end, the answer is not as important as just understanding that you CAN use the present continuous in this scenario. :)

Hey, teacher Alex! I´ve just watched your very important lesson, but I´m a little confused about the third rule, because that´s exactly what I was NOT told: Is it ok if I either say “I´m going to visit Iceland in December” or “I´m visiting Iceland in December”, for example? Is it gramatically right? If it is, please let me know. Take care.

Profile photo of Emanoel Pereira Emanoel Pereira

    Hi
    I think both are correct.
    Let’s go waiting for Alex’s answer.
    Good question Emanoel.

    Profile photo of werickson03 werickson03

    Both are correct. Grammar books and teachers might try to tell you that the continuous is wrong here, but try to convince any native English speaker that it’s wrong and they’ll just give you a funny look. :)

      I see. Thanks a lot for the heads-up. ;)

Only the other day, due to a sentence that I was reading, in a textbook, did I come to realize that I didn’t have a clue as to what made up a sentence. Yes, the sentence was very complicated, but I’m sure it would have been very easily understood by someone with the slightest of a grammar background. I’m hoping that your grammar programs will change the English Game for me because at this point I don’t think I’m even on the Ballfield. Thanks, FR

What is the difference between preposition inside and into?

Profile photo of Rahim Rahim

    “Inside” is actually an adverb like “here” or “there.” “Into” is a preposition.

    “I’m inside the classroom.” (I am in the classroom)
    “I’m walking into the classroom.” (I am walking through the door)

Thanks sir for this great lesson! .In fact i would like to ask you a question. So my question is what’s the meaning of these idioms”get off Your high horse and pull your neck back in ” and”High Horse Descent Required “? I hope your reply.

Profile photo of Bushra hg Bushra hg

    “Get off your high horse” means to become humble and stop acting superior to other people.

    “Pre-marital sex is evil and wrong!”
    “Oh please, get off your high horse.”

    I’ve never heard of the other idiom.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Hello, Alex!
I thing tha the last question was a little confused.
“He usually stays home on Thursday nights, but tonight, he’s going out with friends.”
What kind of usage is this?
an action happening right now
a temporary action/behavior
a pre-arranged future plan

I thoght that it was a pre-arranged future plan, but it wasn’t. :(

Profile photo of VanessaPantaleao VanessaPantaleao

    It’s a matter of interpretation. It sounds like quite a few students are having problems with this one. It’s a temporary action because he USUALLY stays at home, but TONIGHT he’s changing his behaviour temporarily and going out. It could still be a future plan, though, so I see where students can become confused.

    As long as you know you can use the present continuous in this scenario, that’s really the most important thing.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Thank You, Alex for the good lesson!

Profile photo of Nikita.Suvorov Nikita.Suvorov

Hi Alex,I think #1 question is not correct answer because of adverb of frequency (always),it should be in present simple tense.He’s always helps others,sounds more correctly,doesn’t it?

Profile photo of cuong ta cuong ta

    “He always helps others” is correct because you can absolutely use the present simple to talk about habits or regular behaviours, but it’s also possible to use the continuous to emphasize the repetition of the action.

Profile photo of Aleachi Aleachi

Alex, thanks a bunch! … You are one of my favourite teachers on the net ! … I really love your accent a lot ! … A question about this topic:

I know that Future with BE GOING TO is almost a 100 % certain action in the future. With WILL, the future refers that the action probably occurs, but I am not sure about it.

Am I right in my interpretation?

However, if I say:

* I am going to travel to New York, next week.
* I will travel to New York, next week.

In this case, Is there any difference between those sentences?

Best wishes from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, South America! *

Hello, I need to clear my doubts. One rule says: both “I feel hurt ” and I am feeling hurt ” are correct. Another says: feel is a non-continuous verb and only can be used in continuous by the way indicated : “He is feeling a baby’s forehead” . where “is feeling” means-touch. SO, does it mean that feel can be used in continuous by two ways? Where the first is talking about physical pain and the second is “touch” meaning. Is conclusion correct? Thanks in advance :)

    hii how are you

    Hi,
    I’ve also heard this rule about “state verbs”.
    Engvid’s search engine brings us a lesson on it : https://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-stative-verbs/
    In the comments trainer Ronnie explains that “I am feeling” is an exception.
    Funny thing, same question came to me with Alex’s example : “Why are you being so selfish?”
    Pretty sure I’ve also heard that some verbs can be both stative or active. Alex could also said
    “Why are you acting so selfish?”
    Continuous tense here emphases something temporaly.

    Hope it helps.

Hey Alex ! Thank you for the lesson. It was a piece of cake and really intersting. I would like,of course if it is possible, to give us a lesson concerning the present perfect especially its colloquial usage. Because I have talked to many native speakers then I found out that they dont use it that as much as the past simple even though, according to “English standard”, they should use it instead of the past simple

Hi

Very nice lesson
My question is if these two sentences belowe have the same meaning:
1. Are you going to the concert next week?
2. Will you go to the concert next week?.

=
Are there any difference between present continuos and simple future tense.

Hello Alex. Thank you for explaining the Present Progressive so well and completely. I was wondering if you could do more lessons covering each of the 12 verb tenses as well. I have problems to choose the right past tense when speaking. For example I don´t know if to say:
“Did you close the window?
“Have you closed the window?
“Were you closing the window?

Thanx so much and exuse for my bad English.
