It is a very good lession,how about the adjective with ING form?

Cuong ta

    We don’t follow “-ing” adjectives with prepositions like we do in this lesson.

    Alex

      excellent

      mangalika miss

        It`s a very useful lesson. Thanks! :D

        pai16

      phuong vanda

Terrific lesson ..

Ahmad

Thanks a lot

Gianni

I’m good at taking quizzes, I’ve never failed. thank a million Alex have a nice day dude.

Efrain Dominguez

    No problem! Keep studying!

    Alex

What is the difference between “I’m good in” and “I’m good at”? Can I use them interchangeably?

The next thing is this: Alex you said that “worried for” is used for a person or something what is acting like a person. :) Anyway, in the quiz, there is “Rodrigo is worried ___ his sister.”, and I chose “about”, but according to you, I should use “for” instead. If we talking about people, can we chose between “for” and “about”? Could you explain me this issue?

morfik

    Yes, we can use “for” and “about” in that situation, but “for” has a more personal meaning in that context.

    “Good at” indicates ability. “Good in” does not…at least, not in the same way. For example:

    “I’m good at typing.” (It’s awkward to say “good in” here)

    vs.

    “Angelina Jolie was really good in Changeling.”
    “Sugar is good in many things!”

    Alex

      ok, you are good at explication¡¡

      jmanuelsi

Thank you so much. I got 10 correct out of 10. It is amazing because preposition is a good challenge. You are really good at teaching.

Claudia Rejane from Brazil

I have another question :)
If we want to use the word “explain”, do we use any preposition after it, or it depends on something?

For example:
“Could you explain me this issue?” — Should I add “to” after explain? — “Could you explain to me this issue?”

Can we change a little bit the above sentence to this form? — “Could you explain this issue to me?”

morfik

    Good question!

    Janilza

    The most correct and common form of your question here is the last one. “Could you explain this/that to me/us/them?”

    “Could you explain me your reasons” is incorrect, since you’re asking the other person to explain YOU.

    Alex

thank you please Alex answer my Q
which adjectives goes with Around and ON
please help me
thanks again

ikiller

    There are numerous possibilities.

    “He’s nervous/anxious/confident around beautiful women.”

    One common idiomatic expression with an adjective and on is “big on.” For example, if I say “I’m big on sci-fi literature,” I mean that I am really interested in sci-fi.

    Hope this helps!

    Alex

Hello Alex. I`m new in this wedsite and I find the lesson is fantastic with a wonderful teacher. I’m a Spanish teacher too, but not an English teacher. I can learn a lot from your experince.

Thank you Alex
Would you explain between two prepositions “for and “about”?

ckjlus

Another question for using comma, Q: Paul is going to see the movie about the couple who disappeared, so he may come home late, because it lasts three hours.
My question is -Why use a comma before because? Would you explain to me? I could not understand why use before a subordinating conjunction, because?

ikiller

thanks Alex so much I so interesting in this lesson

asala

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the lesson. I have one question on same.

Here is this question in quiz. “Rodrigo is worried ___ his sister” and correct answer was about. Can we say Rodrigo is worried for his sister?

emma08

    Absolutely. “For” makes it feel more personal, as if Rodrigo is worried in place of his sister. I hope that makes sense! It works for people, but doesn’t really work in other contexts. For example:

    “I’m a little worried about my driving exam.”
    “I’m a little worried for my driving exam.”

    “For” doesn’t work here because it implies that you are worried in place of your driving exam, which is impossible because exams don’t have feelings.

    Alex

      perfect answer!

      Ekin

      you are a great teacher.

howdy Alex great lesson
thinks a bundle
one question :if I wanna say
I think she is tired from trying. instead of ((of)) use (from) because from it can used to describe condition . it that correct hope to find replies

hisham77

    You can definitely be “tired from” something. It means that the thing you are tired from directly caused your fatigue.

    Alex

i realy liked this websites but i have one problem , i study english in college first year and i realy realy need help from u guys , i have issues in linguistics and epistomology plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz i need your help teacher alex or anyone capable plzzzzzzzzzz i have exams soon so i’m waiting your answer if anyone see this plzzzz replie to my e-mail adress sunshine-hd@hotmail.com or my fb pretty hind ,i need lessons in this modules plzzzzzz

Hi Alex,

50% oups i really have to revise this lesson !! Please what are the answers ?
I’m terrible __ taking quizzes. (with? at?)
I’m really tired ____all her lies (about? with?)

Thanks

kurtleen

    “Terrible at” and “Tired of.” :)

    Alex

Hi Kurtleen. The first question’s answer is “at” as he taught us we are good or bad at something.
The second one’s answer is of so that you can translate in french ” Je suis fatigué de tous ses mensonges”.
I hope I helped you. Au revoir.

carlos77

Hi Alex ! What about my request of the pronunciation difference of :
‘puːl ˈpʊl ˈfuːl ˈfʊl’.
I think that the pronunciation lessons are the most important and they aren’t completed on Engvid. There are some pronunciation lessons but they don’t cover all the 15 vowels sounds.
I looked in the web and I found some good stuff but I think that if you could teach them I would understand better and everybody would benefit of it. Thanks for your help and your patience.
Bye.

carlos77

    I think this is a great idea. I’ll put together some more pronunciation lessons for the new year!

    Alex

      I hadn’t seen you answered me. Thanks for taking this idea in consideration. Watch you soon ^^.

      carlos77

Omar Hesham

thank u Alex.it was very intresting lesson.you was very good at teaching.:-)

ahmed69

thanks a lot .it’s really interesting what you’re teaching.i’d like to distinguish between the prepositions at / in

fatima

    You would need a whole book for that. :) The basic difference, if you’re talking about “at” and “in” as prepositions of place, is that “in” actually means “inside,” whereas “at” means “at a specific location.”

    For example:

    “I am in school.” (I’m inside the building)
    “I am at school.” (Maybe I’m in the computer lab, maybe I’m outside, maybe I’m in class…I’m somewhere in or around the school)

    Hope this helps!

    Alex

zoze

hi alex how r u ? its really good to listen into ur lessons , my question is when i can say i told him and when i say i ve’ told him. really im happy if u can provide me with ur good answer.by the way u have such a great clear accent which i love it.my best regards to u

abdulelah

    “I told him” is simple past, which means you can also add a past time expression like “yesterday,” “two days ago,” “last week,” etc. to it.

    “I have told him” is present perfect, which means you can’t use past time expressions. It’s the indefinite past. You told him at some point before the present, but the time is not important. However, you can say “I’ve told him today/recently.” It’s something that happened in the recent past in these examples.

    Alex

      thank you Alex

      yury1

i really learn from you. thanks a lot!

Great to learn this lesson thank you ALEX

mo7amedkma

Hi, Alex. Thank you for your lesson. I have a question for you. Could you tell me what part of speech the word “gone” is? Could it be used not only as a PastParticiple but also as an adjective? I`ve seen some sentences, that contain word “gone”. And it has been unclear for me since, how to use “gone” in this case. For example: “Wow, this ice-cream is gone! It`s really gone!” Or: “The robber had been gone when I came.” Can I use the auxiliary verb “to be” with “gone” in Present Perfect tense instead of “have”? For example: “He is gone”. I hope you understand my question.
Best regards.

Hello teacher Alex. Could you explain?
Why we use? ” I am interred in….” instead “I have interested in ….”
I supposed “is/am/are” always follow by ” ing ”
Such as. ” I am interesting in writing” OR ” I am exciting about your birthday.”
Why don’t we use like ” I have interred in writing” ” I have excited about your
birthday.”
Thank you.

Hi, I have a question about “focused”.
I have learnt from my English teacher that I should always say ” I’m focused on sth or on doing sth. But today I saw someone writing focused in/at, like in the phrase:
I wasn’t focused in/at work today. Then, I asked that person If it shouldn’t be ” I wasn’t focused on my work today and she said that I could use in or at in this case and it would be right. I would like to know If she is right and that I really can use “focused ” this way.
