Hi Alex,
I would like to appreciate you for introducing us with this commonly used age vocabulary.The adjectives you described in the video are used frequently in English movies,songs and also in everyday conversations.For an instance,we used to send a message to our relatives by postcards or making a trunk call.These were the past means of exchanging information but these are now outdated,oldfashioned.People nolonger make a trunkcall.Now a days, we all use advanced,faster,easier electronic gadgets like “Internet”,”Blackberry cell phone etc to contact to anyone around the world anytime. Even,if we cosider the floppy disks which were earlier used to store electronic information,we find that they are now outdated and extinct.Floppy disks are no longer sold in an electronic shop.A tinnier,portable storage device called External harddisk has taken its place.They are very popular and demanding..
I request you to check my sentences and let me know my mistakes..
I am looking forward to receive an early response from your end…

Hey, Alex. I have asked you to explain the word ‘would’ earlier. Do you remember it? I have some doubts about “would” In Americal spoken english the word “would” uses everywhere.
i know it means habbitual actions in the past and it uses conditional sentences. But would uses in many conversations.I think it has other meainings. Can you explain it in detail? I’m looking forward to a fast reply.

Paratishpa777

    You have the two major uses right there. :) It’s used for the second and third conditional. (“If…, I would…” and “If…, I would have…”) It’s also used for past habitual actions.

    You can also use it to make requests. “Would you help me/hurry up/stop wasting time?!”

    It’s also used in a similar way as “was/were going to” to talk about past intentions for the future. (I hope that makes sense) For example, “She always knew she would/was going to have a lot of children.”

Hi Alex.
First of all : Thank you for your lessons.
I would like to ask you if you could, please, teach us the difference between the sounds uː and ʊ. For instance: Fool and full, pool and pull.
Your lesson about a and e was fundamental to my progression.
Bye.

Hi, Alex.
Very good, as usual!! I began to watch your videos some months ago, and I’ve progressed a lot, it’s really very good material.
I have a request for you, if you consider that could be interesting.
In a Columbo movie (do you remember Peter Falk, the Lt. Columbo?, I’m very ancient, too) I’ve heard an expression that keeps me a little worried.
The movie is in YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUPLHvZ4KLk
From 2:15 to 2:23 time, I believe the transcription is (it’s my own transcription…):
“What do you name each card correctly or incorrectly is entirely up to you, is that clear?”
Is that construction correct? I think it has at least two errors (do and is that…), but surely I’m wrong.
Thanks a lot for your lessons!!!!

Hi dear Alex and thank you for a great lesson.I’d like to express 2 points:
I still have a flip phone.It’s a ____________.
antique
dinosaur
ancient
old school
as you see all the answers begin with a vowel sound except dinosaur which is the correct answer, because before it we don’t have an. we have only a, and this means without considering the topic we can click on the correct answer.
2) In question number 4:
Nice sunglasses! They look like they’re from the ’70s. Very __________.
ancient
antique
retro
dinosaur
what does’70s mean and why retro is correct and other answers are incorrect? thank you very much for giving your time to me.

Excuse me sir. I don’t understand why don’t we use “dinasaur” to fill blank but outdated? (in the 5th question) I think his ideas are a little _____________. He’s stuck in the past. He needs to study more recent information.
