Good luck with your studies, everyone! As always, thanks for clicking!
I´d say “could you lend me your phone?”, but if you want the right answer, ask the squirrel. It was closer to you when you were explaining the differences :)
Could you lend me your phone is correct
To be honest, it was a bit difficult to pay attention to your lesson when a beautiful squirrel was having some fun behind you.
Apart from that, excellent lesson as always, Mr. Makar!!!Straight to the point!!
(Squirrel: min 2:34 to 3:34)
Thanks a lot ;)
The true star of the show! I hope it kept people captivated! Haha.
So I reviewed the lesson but I didn’t see the squirrel. Fortunately, you gave us the time slot and I finally discovered the squirrel. You are really sharp. Thanks.
thanks a lot Mr.Alex
i got the difference between these words
That’s great! :) Keep it up.
Thanks alot, I’m seriously learning
That’s fantastic to hear. Keep it up!
Good lesson! Thank you very much! I hope I’ll remember different between borrow and lend.
Before I think lend is only about money…
I’m glad I was able to expand your knowledge of this verb! :) You can lend someone anything, not just money.
I have a question from the book Reading Explorer 4 by National geographic. On page 128 writer used the word wired in the sentence “We are wired to collaborate”
In this sentence, the author means that “there is ________ basis for our ability to work together. and possible answers given are
1. an electronic.
2. a biological.
Can someone tell me the right answers for this?
Without more context, it’s difficult to say, but I would say it’s #2. If we “are wired” to do something, it means something is naturally part of our “programming” as humans. :)
“Living in a borrowed time.” Great song by John Lennon.
About the bank, could I say “I need to loan some money from the bank?” is this a colossal mistake,professor?
I would say “I need to get a loan from the bank,” “I need a bank loan,” or “I need to borrow some money from the bank.”
Thanks a liked a lot

That’s great to hear! I’m glad you found it useful, farida.
Very helpful. Thank you so much for engvid team
Any time. Thanks for studying with all of us! :)
I felt this lesson easy to understand but such a practical lesson that I may use the pattern in everyday life. Always thank you for providing great lessons. There are some confusing words that look similar to one another. For example, ‘lie’ and ‘lay’, ‘house’ and ‘home’, and so on. I have difficulty between ‘in’ and ‘on’ when using time expression. For instance, ‘On the weekend’ or ‘In the weekend’.
Hi Insoo, thanks for studying with EngVid! I hear you about similar words being a bit difficult to differentiate sometimes. for “on the weekend” vs. “in the weekend” the answer is “on the weekend” (American English) and “at the weekend” (British English). I hope this helps. Thanks again for checking out the lesson. Enjoy your weekend. :)
thank you so much
