I clicked two mcqz wrong. Glad to hearn so easily such an important part of speech. thanks a lot Alex.

Friday, June 17th 2011

Is it also possible to say..
Even though it was hot, i put on a shirt.

Saturday, June 18th 2011

    Hi Kru Jay! I’ve choosen the same answer as you! I think that it can be considered correct if you take in consideration the difference of climate between our countries and Canada! We both live in places very hot and humid in summer where men often take off tee-shirts when it is too hot… Where I live, last week, it was 35° celsius with 80% of humidity!! (95° fahrenheit!!). While in Canada when it is hot, they just take off coats and pullover ! (The best eco-friendly air-conditionating system!!)

    Thursday, September 1st 2011

      Hey, in Toronto, Canada, it gets that hot too! It just gets colder in the winter.

      Thursday, September 15th 2011

        Really? Ooops! My mistake! I’ve been traumatized by James’s lesson about winter clothing…!!! :)

        Friday, September 16th 2011

I’m very glad to test how I understand the lesson

Saturday, June 18th 2011

Sorry to make a spam but could not find the way to ask at appropriate place.

Could you please tell me the meaning of following
“Egg streme-ly simple” or “Egg streme-ly confusing “.

Thanks and Regards

Hello. I am a beginner in English, I want to speak English fluently. please guide me how can I improve my English?

Saturday, June 18th 2011

dear sir,

Saturday, June 18th 2011

thanks for the lesson!

Saturday, June 18th 2011

It was helpful for me as the beginer.

Saturday, June 18th 2011

Alex, thanks for this lesson is really good!!
Pls check if there`s a problem with the Quiz, because when you click in there, it doesn`t show anything.


Saturday, June 18th 2011

Alex. You are good profesor.
May I suggest one thing to improve your teaching? I hope you take my critics in good faith. You are good and I belive you can do more.
When you teach somebody, you need to get (hmm…that is wrong, isnt it?) his attention. Maybe you think that is not important. But it is. Becouse we are mostly students (younger person) and we have a lot of other things to think. And only if you get our attention during your lesson, we will learn something.
Look at James, for example, he realy know how to get the attention of the whole class of teenagers ;)
Anyway, I can not imagine you teaching like he teaches. It is not in your character (nature). But I suggest you to think what you can do every two minutes to break the monotony of lesson.

Thank you a lot. I am very pleased to find this webside and learn english with you.
And sorry for all my mistakes. I am not good in languages. But I will find a way to improve it.

Sunday, June 19th 2011

Good lesson. Thank you Alex.

Sunday, June 19th 2011

Thanks Alex, it was a pretty good lesson and so much usefull for me. And a lot of thanks that the movie time is more than 10 minutes. I like this!

Sunday, June 19th 2011

Vida, I want to protect Alex from you because lesson lasts only 10 minutes and every student, who really wants to study this lesson, can be able to pay attention for movie. Even if he don’t, he may repeat it again.

Sunday, June 19th 2011

Maybe I was not so clear… so I will try to do it clearly.
I had told only my opinion. I believe that everyone has his personal approach to teching science. (<–Here I dont know if i choose the right words) And this is good.
Anyway, Alex is mature enough to accept that well-intentioned critic and I am sure that he experienced sth that is more stressful than my message. What do you think? If you were him, what will you do in situation like that?

Anyway, your opinion is right-minded. If someone wants to study, he will be listening and be mindful in each case.
Have a nice day. I like your protecting Alex. He is good teacher :)

Sunday, June 19th 2011

Thank you Mr.Alex really I find it usefulfor me
need this kind of lessons for writing I’m bad in it and you know because I’m a secretary and I need to improve my writing especially minutes in meeting. again thank : )

Sunday, June 19th 2011

Great job! I also want to back Alex up in his way of teaching because He describes things in a very good structure. I don’t think that his lessons are boring. For something to be interesting to you, you must be interested in it :) By the way, he is one of the teachers who likes explaining more complicated grammar than the others and, to my mind, he has a success. Thank, Alex!

Sunday, June 19th 2011

Mam the way of teaching is so nice but there is one mistake in this video.the sentence in active is correct but the sentence of passive is incorrect because the active sentence is simple present and the passive is in pass that’s it thanks you are nice teacher take care

Sunday, June 19th 2011

lesson is about Active and passive by MADAM
Ex;active ; I eat lunch. passive; lunch was eaten
this is a big mistake
thanks to the corrector

Sunday, June 19th 2011

Hi Alex, your diction is very clear and the way you explain grammatical topics is just perfect for me.That really keeps me watching the videos.

Sunday, June 19th 2011

hmmmm….great lesson Mr. Alex
like so much, you always explained sth better and more clearly…its very useful
thank a lot, you spended many times in this lesson. success for you

Monday, June 20th 2011

thank you so much Alex for lesson…it s really useful..
but i couldnt understand 3rd question of quiz, because of sentence meaning

“Even though the band was really tired, they finished the concert.”

if an independent clause is negative form, it would be better ???

i meant ” Even though the band was really tired, they didnt finish the concert.”

i just wanted to ask, maybe i thought wrong way

i m trying to learn english with engvid supports..thank u for all lessons

bye :)

Monday, June 20th 2011

nice alex,i like it..you explianed it clearly, i remembered this lessons,when i was in high school student but our teacher before are not good to explainations..but your explainations are so great..i immediately understand this all.

Monday, June 20th 2011

Thank you so much for you lessons Mr.Alex, you keep on bringing up the good stuff, I wanted to ask you about a couple of things:
what does “My head is all over the wall”, when A for instance is talking to B and B says it , does it mean he is not following? does it have a specific reason?,
also, “To see right through someone” I think it’s a bad thing as if he doesn’t exist I think. would you explain it to me, also to ” dismiss someone out of hand “, and last thing is most important
I rather (go – to go – going)
I’d rather (go – to go – going)
I prefer (go – to go – going)
I’d prefer (go – to go – going)
I like (go – to go – going)
I’d like (go – to go – going)
I suggest (go – to go – going)
I’d suggest (go – to go – going)
such verbs ^^
Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you

Friday, June 24th 2011

Dear Mr. Alex.
Thank you for learning, i’m understand at all. but i’m still confusing when we change adjective to be adverb. when we could put “-ly” in the end word of adjective. eg.: “she work very slow” and “she work slowly” => what is different of this two sentences? which is correct?

Sunday, July 3rd 2011

Thank you so much Alex for your lessons, i scored 8 out of ten!

Monday, July 4th 2011

thank you for all the team.i appreciate all the sacrifices you are doing for us.thank a lot.

Monday, July 4th 2011

Hi Alex, this class is really important but I scored 5 out 10. Can you explain.
what is wrong on the followed sentences:
Thank you.

you=Because it was hot, I put on a t-shirt.
me=When I put on a t-shirt, it was hot.

you=I will go to Niagara Falls if the bus ride is cheap.
me=I will go to Niagara Falls when the bus ride is cheap.

you=Because Suzie is going to the party, I won’t go.
me=Even if Suzie goes to the party, I won’t go.

you=I remember the place where I saw an amazing sunset.
me=Because I saw an amazing sunset, I remember the place.

you=Since Scott loved the book, he really wants to see the movie.
me=Although Scott really loved the book, he really wants to see the movie.

Tuesday, July 5th 2011

    Hi Friend ! It’s really a little bit confusing to understand.However I can give you a hand for the sentence that i understood.
    It doesn’t matter if Suzie goes to the party. I still won’t go!
    your answer is correct : Even if Suzie goes to the party, I won’t go.

    I remember the place. I saw an amazing sunset there.
    here it’s about place so we have to use “Where” ( which place i remember? the place where i saw a sunset)

    Scott loved the book. He really wants to see the movie now.
    Scott loved the book ( the verb is in the simple past ) so here , Scott read the book and he loved it and since that time( the time when he read the book) ,he wants to watch the movie.
    it really quite confusing! i failed in the 2 first sentence that you wrote in your comment and i didn’t really get it. but the 3rd one it’s correct.

    Thursday, September 22nd 2011

hello sir Alex sir I I’m from Pakistan my problem is those whom are people speaking English with me I’m understand but then I’m not reply answer to in English what i do

Monday, July 11th 2011

I’m really happy, Your lesson is good, teacher. I’m always tried to remember the Adv-type, but now I think they are memorized.

Thank you Mr.Alex :)

Monday, July 11th 2011

I scored 9 out of 10. Question no. 2 confused me.
Ti was so close.

Friday, July 15th 2011

i need understand

Saturday, July 16th 2011

Thanks for the lesson. It’s really helpful. However, I don’t understand the answer of the first question “Because it was hot, I put on a t-shirt.” Can I say “Even though it was hot, I put on a t-shirt.”? People often take off their clothes when the weather is hot.

Sunday, July 17th 2011

A fantastic lesson. It was just what I was looking for. Clear and concise from a friendly face.

Sunday, July 17th 2011

thanks teach for the lesson !
you’re a great teacher !

Hello Alex. You said: “after i finish my breakfast, i went home”, is it correct to use the past in a expression of future? didn’ t i hear it properly?

thanks , i got 9 out of 10

Tuesday, August 16th 2011

thanx alex…i wanna improve my soft skills , can u please suggest me the good way ??????????…

Wednesday, August 17th 2011

Dear Alex,
I have a question about the sentence below. My answer was “Because the band was really tired, they finished the concert”
Your answer is below sentence.Could you please xplain why?I dont understand.
“Even though the band was really tired, they finished the concert”

Thursday, August 18th 2011

yes! also me I got 9 out of 10…

Saturday, August 27th 2011

good job, the lesson was really really good and exercise also, but i score only 6 out of 10.thats not good.

Saturday, August 27th 2011

Dear Alex

When I finished work, I called you.
Can i say it -When i finish work, I will call you.
What is the deference between this two, if second one is correct.

Monday, August 29th 2011

    I think I can help :)

    In the sentence “When I finished work, I called you.” you talk about past activities – both verbs are in the Past Simple here.

    “When I finish work, I will call you” is also correct, but now you’re talking about two future activities: ‘first I’ll finish work, then I’ll call you’.
    We can’t say: “When I will finish work, I will call you” – this structure is not correct.

    The basic structure of sentences like this is:
    When I do sth, I will do sth else.

    Even though in the clause with “when” is no “will”, we know it’s about future, because the other clause has a verb in Future Simple.

    Sunday, November 13th 2011

Thank you so much !
I finally got it ;-)

Wednesday, August 31st 2011

I learne the lesson ! 8 out of 10… almost there ;-)

Wednesday, August 31st 2011

Just want to congratulate Alex on a very effective style of teaching. I disagree with one comment that he needed to be as animated as James (who is also a very good teacher) but has a different style.) Just as learners have different styles – so too do teachers. If you are overly attentive to the attributes of teachers you can forget that the onus to learn is with you. I have to say Alex is my favourite teacher – though by entertaining a variety of teachers you can increase your understanding of a grammar point. Well done to all the teachers at engVid – Btw I am also a teacher – and will adopt some of your ideas. Good teaching requires we adapt delete and add to any ideas or material we come across. Currently, i am studying my masters in Applied linguistics and that has opened up a whole new world of language use and usage. However, I never would claim to be the font of all knowledge when it comes to the nuanced nature of English grammar, and therefore, welcome the effort others make to contribute to everyone’s language competence and performance. Thank you.

Thursday, September 1st 2011

Monday, September 5th 2011

Thank you Alex. I am a new learner. I have a question about another topic. Just I wonder.
How can I make a good centence like these two centences? “They are very lucky. Because they have a very beautiful home.” If you answer my question, I’ll be happy.(I think, it’s related with this lesson,isn’t it?)

Wednesday, September 7th 2011

    Sunday, May 20th 2012

dear Alex,
Thank you for your lesson.
I got 7 out 10.
Could you please tell me about (even though, although) and what diffirent between everywhere and wherever?

Sunday, November 13th 2011

Dear Alex
I got 9 up to 10. I think the response of the last question is:
Although Scott really loved the book, he really wants to see the movie.
Am I right?

Monday, November 14th 2011

    First time,I think like you.but I think If I put “because” instead of “since”, I’ll get “Because Scott loved the book, he really wants to see the movie now”.That might be better answer.

    Tuesday, November 29th 2011

I am very confused with the first correct answer by engVID which says Because it was hot, I put on a T-shirt. Why do you have to put on a T-shirt when the weather is hot? Aren’t you suppose to take it off instead? Please explain why can’t I say “Even though it was hot, I put on a shirt.” Thank you very much

Friday, November 18th 2011

    I though tthe same thing. I thought that maybe it’s because people from cold countries lik bto wear a t-shirt inside the shirt when it,s hot, because of the sweat.

    Monday, September 9th 2013

It doesn’t matter if Suzie goes to the party. I still won’t go!
Because Suzie is going to the party, I won’t go.
When Suzie goes to the party, I won’t go.
Even though there is a party, Suzie isn’t going.
Even if Suzie goes to the party, I won’t go.

I scored 10 out of 10 but this particular one concerns me. It says the correct one is ==> Even if Suzie goes to the party, I won’t go.

But what about this one ==> Because Suzie is going to the party, I won’t go.
Why does it say it is incorrect one? :O

Thursday, January 5th 2012

hii alex
I could not visit this site as my semester exam had been going on.It has been over now and I am back again.I am happy to see that you have accepted my friend request. I am having a problem now a days-sometimes I think that everything I am doing/learning is not correct-sometimes I feel that all I know is wrong-I can not come out of this situation-give me some suggestion so that I can get over this problem-I have another question-you said that-“when I had my breakfirst,I went to school”-In this sentence first part/action was done prior to second one i.e-I first ate my breakfirst then left for school-If I frame it as “I went to school after I had had my breakfirst” ,will it be wrong?

Hi Alex. I have a question. In your last example for adverb clauses,it says that “While she’s good at math,I’m good at history.My question is:Why you’re not using “IN” instead of “AT?” When are u going to use “IN” or “AT?” Thank you . GOD Bless you.

Hi, Mr. Alex. Thank you for the lesson. However, I still have question regarding adverb clause. I do not know what verb tense to use for dependent clause and main clause. Let say, if you use present tense verb in the dependent clause, it is automatic that you should use present tense verb in main clause. Please help me. I am still confused about verb when it is complex sentence already.

thanks a lot, Mr Alex. for treaching me and otrher people .

Saturday, September 7th 2013

Hi Alex. Your class is really good, but I have a doubt about the quiz. I think question number one is a little dubious. You said the correct answern is “Because it was hot, I put on a t-shirt.” Here in Brazil men and kids take off their t-shirts when it’s hot, so we’d choose “Even though it was hot, I put on a T-shirt.

Monday, September 9th 2013

    I agree with you. We will change the quiz, Alopn07!

    Tuesday, September 10th 2013

I made one wrong. It was third question
I don’t still understand meaning of this question
Why did you use ‘”stiil” in this sentence

Monday, June 8th 2015

Thanks, Alex. It was very useful for me.

Tuesday, June 9th 2015

got 9 out of 10! failed on question 8. but still don’t know why my answer was wrong “because I saw a beautiful sunset, I remember the place”
while the answer was “I remember the place where I saw a beautiful sunset”
why can’t both be correct? I think they both are.

Saturday, May 14th 2016

I am a little confused, because I was taught that you must place a comma before the conjunction if the sentence after the the conjunction can be read as a complete sentences by eliminating the conjunction.
John called me, because he had an accident.
John called me. He had an accident.
Two independen clauses, comma added
John called me because of an accident.
An independent and a subordinate clause, no comma. By the way, I love this site. I have really cleared lots of doubts.

Tuesday, May 31st 2016

teacher !thank you so much for your great lesson but i really confused adverb clause vs noun clause.

Monday, August 29th 2016

Thank you Mr.Alex.Your lesson was very helpful!!!

Friday, September 2nd 2016

In resources adverb clauses page you write if and when for condition adverb clause , so in the question four we have two right answers.
I will go to Niagara Falls if the bus ride is cheap.
I will go to Niagara Falls when the bus ride is cheap.

Sunday, September 11th 2016

please give me a reason for question 10 I choose the wrong answer ( Number four ) .

4) Although Scott really loved the book, he really wants to see the movie.

Sunday, September 11th 2016

thans teacher

Monday, October 31st 2016

Hi Alex,
what’s wrong with this sentence,
Don saw a nightmare on Elm street since he hasn’t been able to sleep.
can’t we keep “since” between two clauses?

Wednesday, November 16th 2016

You make it easy Alex ( 10 of 10 ).. thank you.

Wednesday, November 23rd 2016

Even though I’ve got 100 points, I still don’t understand the different between adverb clauses and noun clauses!

Thursday, December 8th 2016

if clause(condition) is an adverb clause? widely its not yet known. Though any advanced uses of if would matter beside the if clause I have not seen it anywhere in lesson.It was you Alex,who had a short and good reference to such things,earlier

Thursday, December 22nd 2016

Now I got the point . 10/10. Thank you teacher.

Friday, December 30th 2016

Hello, Alex. I teach Practical Grammar at University in Armenia and we’re doing the complex sentence now so we watched a few videos made by Alex and you. We also went to the resources section and did a test there on the adverb clause. I’d like to make a comment on two sentences in that test. They are thought to be adverb clauses as they are in this quiz but don’t yu think they’re actually adjective clauses? Here are the sentences :
1.I remember the place where I saw an amazing sunset.
2.I remember a day when I was young and energetic.

Will you please comment on the type of dependant clauses in these sentences? Thank you.

Sunday, April 12th 2020

Thank you! sir, I got 9/10.
