Saturday, September 29th 2018

Hi Gill,

thank you for your very useful lesson.

Please, could you explain where the differnece between AUXILIARY and MODAL verb is ?

Or is it the same ?

Thank you


Saturday, September 29th 2018

    Hi Adriana, I can help answer this one! A modal verb is an auxiliary verb. It “helps” and needs other verbs to be used.

    She can do it.
    We should leave early.
    They’ll be angry if we don’t finish this.

    I hope this helps!

    Thursday, October 4th 2018

      Thank you very much, Alex.
      It means every modal verb is an auxiliary verb.

Hi, I would like to practice my speaking English. I leave my WhatsApp number in my profile. Feel free to contact me.

Monday, October 1st 2018

thank you. It was very interresting.

Monday, October 1st 2018

Is this correct?

“I would like to talk about” or should it be

I Will like to talk about….

Monday, October 1st 2018

    Hi Chiazor, the MUCH more common set phrase is “I would like to talk about” in this case. It can have a present or near future meaning. However, “I will like to talk about” is possible, but only has a future meaning. It can also be misunderstood because it COULD sound like you’re making a promise that you WILL enjoy talking about something in the future.

    Stick with “I would like to talk about.” :)

    Thursday, October 4th 2018

the question number 8 the answer was (I used to polish my shoes every day, but I don’t do that anymore.)
why he doesn’t do that any more
i understood that he used to polish his shoes that is meaning it always are dirty
would you like to reply to me please

Monday, October 1st 2018

    The sentence is just hypothetical or conditional and it implies that he used to do it before but he stopped dude to some reason – this could be any reason.

I have a question, why in this sentence “I would’ve cooked a meal, but I didn’t have time.” we do not say “but i had not had time”, is it not a third conditional where we use past perfect?

I got 10 correct out of 10. Thanks so much for giving me lessons. Teacher Gill is great to explain the lesson.

Thursday, January 17th 2019

Please, take a look at number 7 question, there is an error. The correct answer counts as incorrect in the final result. Was getting 9/10 everytime. Thanks.

Wednesday, January 23rd 2019

    Which answer do you think is the correct one?

    Wednesday, January 23rd 2019

      You are right. I guess I misunderstood. “I used to polish my shoes every day, but I don’t do that anymore.” seems like the correct one. Still, kind of a tricky question, to me at least. Shouldn’t it be could instead of would in the question to fit the answer properly? Doesn’t would suggest regular past action?

      Thursday, January 24th 2019

        Yes, “would” suggests regular past action. For this question, the key bit is past. “At one time” and “would” imply that you don’t polish your shoes any more.

        If you still polish your shoes every day, you would just say “I polish my shoes every day” or “I have always polished my shoes every day”. I hope this helps.

        Friday, January 25th 2019

Great and easy to understand , thank you
