    It’s a tricky one, but it’s still a place that you’re going to go to in the future, so I’d stick with “gone.”

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      This was also little bit confusing to me. I thought “Gone” to launch and not get back.
      I haven’t been there, and I haven’t yet return, because I haven’t even been there.

      Profile photo of rokaly rokaly

Why can’t be both answers correct in the second question? (“Where did Brenda go on vacation?”)
She could have returned from her vacation, couldn’t she? In that case, the answer with the verb ‘be’ would be appropriate.

Profile photo of Greezlock Greezlock

    You’re right. I should probably make the context clearer in the question itself.

      Hello Alex, this time i got 7/10, it’s better, just the 2, 9 & 10 where i was wrong.
      For the question 2, i think the question should be confusing
      For the question 9, why we can’t say “they’ve been go home” ? it’s a go and back, no..?

      see you!

      Profile photo of kampor kampor

Thank you Mr.Alex ,I’ve got 9 of 10 ,I just confused at the second Question why we’ve to say “she’s gone to Russia for a few week ” instead of she’s been !!

Profile photo of perkyboy perkyboy

    The idea is that she’s still in Russia. Sorry, maybe the context isn’t clear enough in the question!

She’s gone grocery shopping.
=> “Gone girl” ;-)
Like the movie with Ben Affleck. Very exciting this Thriller!!!

But “Gone girl” in this case the meaning is “Ex girl friend”, right Alex?

Profile photo of Ralph-GER Ralph-GER

    It has been a long time since I’ve seen that movie. Wasn’t the “Gone Girl” a little girl who got kidnapped?…by Morgan Freeman’s police officer character? SPOILERS. :)

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Not so quite.
      She is suddenly on their 5th marriage anniversary disappeared.
      And her husband (Ben Affleck) is seeking for her.
      Later he is also suspected as a hijacker by the police.

      A really good thrill movie!!!

        Oh! I’m thinking of Gone Baby Gone.

Thank you very much for the lesson! I have a small question…) Why do we use “to” in the phrase “I’ve never been to China”, not “in”?

Profile photo of IvanGryllidae IvanGryllidae

    You typically go TO a place. IN is possible too, and is fine grammatically, but TO is the far more common usage. I would use “in” if I’m talking about living in a place.

    “I’ve been in Montreal for 3 years.”
    “I was in Montreal for 2 years. I finished my BA there.”
    “We’ve been in Montreal for a long time.”

    I hope this helps.

    Could you give me an example of what you mean?

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      You said that future continuous tense has will be+verbing,
      But “This work will be completed by 4 pm”.
      “Your secrets will be saved” i don’t know how??clarify me

      Profile photo of Santhosh85083 Santhosh85083

        When you think you got all of the tenses nailed, then comes interesting surprise. All you have learned so far were “active tenses”, but there are also a “passive tenses”. What??? More? Yes. The idea behind passive tenses is to switch focus from object to subject.

        Active (Past Simple): Peter robbed the bank.
        In this case we focus on Peter (object) and bank (subject) is more important then Peter.

        Active (Past Simple): Robber robbed the bank.
        In this case we don’t know the name of the robber and we already know the robber did the robbing. In this case we can switch the importance from robber to the bank, and get passive tense:

        Passive (Past Simple): Bank was robbed (by robber).
        We can of course leave out “by robber”, because it is obvious.

        You see, now bank (subject) is way more important that robber (object).

        General forum for passive tenses is: be (in all sort of tenses) + past participle.
        Past participle is verb+ed for regular verbs and third verb form for irregular.

        Active (Present Simple): Millions of people watch TV show Big Bang.
        Passive (Present Simple): Big Bang is watched by millions.
        In this case the focus is TV show (subject).

        And to your sample (Passive Future Simple). “Your secrets will be saved.”
        Active Future Simple: “I will save your secrets.” This sounds little bit strange, of course “I” is the object, so lets focus on subject “your secrets” and so it becomes passive tense.

        It is the same form: Object + be (in this case in future tense) + past participle.

        There are many engVid videos on passive, see bellow.

    No problem. I hope I’ve made it at least a little clearer.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Hi, Alex! Why does the sentence “We’ll have been in Montreal for three years by then” have future and present perfect together? I didn’t get how to use it.

Profile photo of jhon2603 jhon2603

    This is the future perfect.

    Will/be going to + have + PP

    It means that something will or will not be complete by a specific time in the future.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

    Present Perfect is used to express some action started in the past and it is continuing all up to now.

    Future Perfect is use to express some action that will happen in the future to exact point in time in the future.

    For example, Future Simple: I will finish my painting. (Note: painting in this case is noun, like a picture).
    The form: will + verb
    In sample: will + finish

    But what if we want to explicitly point out that painting is going to be finished till some exact point in time. Future Perfect Simple is used in this case.
    Sample: Till the end of the day I will have finished the painting.

    Form: Object + will have + past participle

    And to get more fun, there is also Future Perfect Continues.
    Sample: Till the end of the day I will have been finishing the painting (if you want to watch me the final touches of painting).

    Forum: Object + will have been + verb-ing

    I can’t find anything related to Future Perfect tenses on engVid. I may not searched enough or there is idea for new video. ;)

    Profile photo of rokaly rokaly

      Ah… typo “they” it should be “day”.
      Moderator, can you please fix the typo.
      Thanks.

      Profile photo of rokaly rokaly

        Fixed the typo—but I’d just like to jump in and correct your examples too. The first part should be By the end of the day. And you wouldn’t hear anyone say the last example. They might say I will be finishing the painting by the end of the day.

        Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

          @Moderator, thanks a lot for fixing the typos.

          Could you please fix the “till” with “by”, I think there is three times in my post above.
          I now find the By vs. Until (till).
          https://www.engvid.com/by-until/
          Thanks for pointing this out. I have new lesson to see. :)

          I also noticed additional typo: “Future Perfect is use” it should be “is used”. Could you please fix it.

          Yes you are right. My last sample is really clumsy. Thanks for pointing this out. Another one bellow probably better (Future Perfect Continues).
          Sample: By the end of the week I will have been painting for six months.

          Future Perfect Simple:
          https://www.ef.com/english-resources/english-grammar/future-perfect/

          Future Perfect Continues:
          https://www.ef.com/english-resources/english-grammar/future-perfect-continuous/

          I have searched and can’t find anything related to Future Perfect tenses on EngVid.com. May I suggest, some Future Perfect video (Simple and Continue). When to use, some samples,quiz etc. That would be awesome.

          Profile photo of rokaly rokaly

          Damm–, another clumsiness, current: “I now find”, better “I have found”.

Alex why does the option A of question 7 is better than the B. There is a matter of feeling as hunger is a state of feeling which persist until ones have taken a meal. So, what I think if we talk about location which requires movement , on that case we better to choose gone instead of been. Isn’t it!?

Profile photo of Annie Annie

    You typically “go” for lunch, so that’s one part of the answer here. You’re right they it’s active and that it hasn’t happened yet, so “Gone” is a bit better here.

    Are you less or more confused now? :)

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Haha, but if we standing in a kitchen ,preparing meal and somebody asks about the same question … ☺

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Hi Alex , hope you will be fine…

Sir , I wanna ask you…. where can we use present simple tense……

Profile photo of Orakzai Orakzai

Have you ever __________ to the Louvre?

In this question when I clicked on gone so it was incorrect but in first question like this it was said that “been” and “gone” both can be used.

Profile photo of Orakzai Orakzai

    The explanation that both “gone” and “been” can be used is something Alex talked about and it was new to me. Probably “gone” is more informal and “been” is strictly formal.

    But it also told us: “If you want to be save…” use “been” if person has gone to some place and as RETURNED back from the place. In this case it is obvious (unless both are currently in Louvre, which would be pretty stupid question) they are not in Louvre (place near Paris with historically important palaces). In this case what the question is: Have you been there and obviously returned back?

    Profile photo of rokaly rokaly

Thank you Alex for this great lesson. I got 7 correct answers out of 10. For me it isn’t confusing but it isn’t automatic. I don’t succeed in expressing it without thinking a lot of what I have to tell. As a matter of fact, I wanted traduct quickly and I made mistakes. May be, a day I will need to reflect no more. It will be some time before I do. However, thanks to you and your good explanations I improve my english. Best regards. Marie-Claude

Profile photo of Jay. Suthar Jay. Suthar

I didnt understand my second mistake) Maybe i confused,but i dont think so) Cause i made only one mistake in second quiz and chose “She has been in Russia” Where i was wrong?)

Profile photo of Mir Murad Mir Murad

    I didn’t , either. Maybe we need to watch it again.

    Profile photo of Michelle Michelle

    The second question is:
    “Where did Brenda go on vacation?”
    a) She’s gone to Russia for a few weeks.
    b) She’s been to Russia for a few weeks.

    Been is used when someone goes somewhere and he or she RETURNS from the trip. Gone is used in the case when some has gone somewhere and has not yet return.

    In this question. Breda is missing, obviously she has gone somewhere, because she is missed and so she hasn’t yet returned back.

    Profile photo of rokaly rokaly

    This one was partly my fault, as the context wasn’t completely clear. My intention was to indicate that Brenda is STILL on vacation. She isn’t present in the conversation and is still in Russia. So the answer must be “She’s gone,” but maybe the context wasn’t clear enough.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Thank you for your clear explanation. I’ve never been abroad but I hope that someday I will be able to travel. 8/10 :)

Profile photo of Kotat Kotat

    Maybe this is because you are from Russia. You can travel thousands of kilometers and you are still in the country. I live in Slovenia, small European country, I travel 100 km in any direction and I get to the border easily.

    It can be expensive, but it’s worth it in the end. I’m sure there’s a lot to see just in Russia!

Hi Alex, I’d appreciate it if you could make a lesson on the difference between suffer and suffer from.

Profile photo of whatchamacallit whatchamacallit

    I am not a native English speaker, but like I understand it.

    Sample:
    They have tortured me, so I physically suffered. They didn’t have any nice word about me, so I suffer mentally.

    “Suffer from” means you have some disease. Patient suffers from schizophrenia. It means patient has a disease called schizophrenia.

    Profile photo of rokaly rokaly

      Thx 4 ur comment but it’s not that easy. You will hear people say “suffer a heart attack (not suffer from a heart attack)” and “suffer from cancer (not suffer cancer)”. Are they collocations or any differences in the usage? Enlighten me Alex ~

    You typically go TO a place. IN is possible too, and is fine grammatically, but TO is the far more common usage. I would use “in” if I’m talking about living in a place.

HI SIR,
I am your great fan and i have asked you a few english grammatical questions on your Facebook page. I am here with a new doubt.
Do both HAD BETTER & WOULD RATHER HAVE the same meaning ?
1. I HAD BETTER go for a job than sit here.
2. I WOULD RATHER go for a job than sit here.
Can we add ” than ” with HAD BETTER as we use with would rather? Are the above sentences are same in meaning? Please clear my doubt. Thanks.

You say that we use Pres. Perf. with go because we want to underline that the action is recent. But when we use be ( past participle ) the action is not recent. I mean the action happened and we have one more action – he came back. Why for me its so strange to use Pres. Perf. in this case ?

Hello Boss,

Could use “I am been following” Is it correct usage? because of nowadays I was received a text message as mentioned above.

I am looking forward a reply

Thanks

Hello, Alex! Thank you for this amazing lesson! I have a question to ask you.
When someone asks you “Where did Brenda go on vacation?” it means that the event was in the past and the most likely scenario is that Brenda has returned home now. So, I think the reply “She has BEEN to Russia” looks more logical than “She has GONE to Russia”. What do you think about it? Many thanks for your help!

Hi Alex.

I am surprised that you never explained that you can use both words in the same sentence. eg: Question-“Has Bob turned up yet”? Answer-“I’m afraid you’ve missed him. He has been & gone already”.
