    Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed the lesson.

    Wednesday, November 14th 2018

I didn’t get a chance earlier to thank you enough for your recommendation about some really good books. I had read the ‘wonder” by R.J. Palacio, and I can tell it was an extremely interesting book which I benefited a lot on so many levels. and I’m about to get the others, though that is not easy getting them in where I live. So, thank you so much

Tuesday, November 13th 2018

    Hi Hassan, I’m so glad you enjoyed it! It’s probably my favourite book from the five I recommended in that video. I would suggest getting your hands on The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time next.

    Wednesday, November 14th 2018

      Thank you, certainly I will.

      Wednesday, November 14th 2018

    Wednesday, November 14th 2018

It was a very clear explanation, as always. I have had a good punctuation, this material is not much easy to memorize yet but despite of this, I appreciate a lot this work!

Tuesday, November 13th 2018

    “I appreciate this work a lot!” My pleasure, hrodebert. I’m glad it was clear and useful.

    Wednesday, November 14th 2018

Hallo Alex,

please, could be used this expressions in the IELTS speaking part ?
(The questions about economy, politics, …)
Or would it be too formal ?

Tuesday, November 13th 2018

    Absolutely! I think your examiner would be quite impressed if you managed to use something like “this stems from…” or “this is triggered by…” in your speaking section. It’s more important to use a variety of tenses and structures in the speaking section, though.

    Wednesday, November 14th 2018

Although I got eight out of ten It seems quite difficult to use. Just in case not look stupid among professors, I remember cause and effect power verbs. Thanks a lot.

Wednesday, November 14th 2018

    You shouldn’t want to remember them to not look stupid in front of professors. You should want to remember them so you can use them in your own work, studies, etc. Good luck, Yurgen!

    Wednesday, November 14th 2018

“Now I’m going to the next board”…nice touch. Your style is great, but you handwriting as lousy as mine! Wonder if it’s just because we both were not born with the english gene in our blood? Kidding. No offence meant. Thanks for sharing your magic with people who cannot afford some fancy school, but eager to make our place better than we found it and English as well. Thanks. We appreciate it. Take care!

Saturday, February 23rd 2019

HI, Alex
Thank you so much for the detailed explanation.

I have some questions about the following information.
As an English teacher, I always want to help my students learn as much as possible, but sometimes I’m not sure which (phrasal) verb doesn’t have passive usage and which should have sb. as the subject.
Can you help me check them? Thank you so much.

A create/produce/cause/trigger B
A contribute to/result in/bring about/give rise to/lead to B
A is responsible(accountable) for/is to blame for/answer for B
B is created/produced/caused/triggered by A
B is brought up by A(how about other phrasal verbs?)
