“A murder of lawyers” is very interesting,maybe a lot of lawyers should be murdered. (Just kidding.

lolwarden

    Well, that is…too dark for me. :) Plus, there are cool fictional lawyers! Like Matt Murdock aka Daredevil.

10/10 :D I remind the Japanese song “Medaka no Gakko” (A school of killifish). Interesting! Thank you, Alex :)

    Alex

Very useful alex, thank you :)

tidiosky

    You’re totally welcome, tidiosky!

    Alex

hello MR alex it’s a good topic you offered us,i like your choice of topic,and your explanation is simple and clarified, i almost always get 10 in the quiz because of it,and i like also your funny manner. i have a question ‘is every word related to the other? for exemple: we only use ‘panel’ with ‘judges’ and we cannot use it with ‘teachers’ for exemple and so one for the others?. don’t be afraid of the crash of rhinos,i will be with you against them.great thanks for you alex.

SKIKDA

    Some of the words can be moved around. “A panel of teachers” sounds fine too, but I wouldn’t say “an army of flowers,” for example. :)

    Alex

Ufff….a wealth of new information. I think I´ll watch this video more times to make sure I learn all the vocabulary properly.
Thank you for the video Alex!And for all the examples you gave us to remember the new words.

knopfler86

    No problem! I’m glad you liked it. I hope the information wasn’t too overwhelming.

    Alex

thanks Mr.Alex for this rare lesson, it contains a wealth of vocabularies, i like your joke about lawlayer and lier.

struggleForEng

    Thanks! I’m glad you had a good time with the video.

    Alex

by the way, i’ve played an online english game called “Fast english” , i’ve tried my best to enter the list of the firsts, but i’ve got a score of 13.000 , so i’ve failled to achieve my goal, i guess that the persons who’ve entred this list have cheated, beacause i guesse it’s impossible to get a score of 20.000, what i mean i dont know if it’s a probleme of my english weakness or it’s a question of cheating, if any one has played this game, he can whrite his score here to dicover the realite about how possible to get 20.000 is.
the URl is “www gamestolearnenglish.com/fast-english/”
the content that i’ve played qnd got 13.000 is called “food 1”.
==> all of you are welcome (-_^)

struggleForEng

    16100 =P. Funnt game =)

    Remacha

      *funny

      Remacha

      wow great, interesting,thanks Remacha you’ve given me an idea, you need almost just 2500 to be one of the firstes list,try again,did you play by laptop or by tablet?
      how did you feel about the possibility to achieve a socre of 20.000 ?

      struggleForEng

    I got 14,600 on my first try. My eyes aren’t fast enough. Haha. Fun game! I’ll have to recommend this to students.

    Alex

Well done, I got 8 correct out of 10 by the way why you threw batch of cookies at the end of lecture.

Muhammad Abbas

    There was a crash of rhinos chasing me.

    Alex

Hello Alex , hello everyone ,
10/10 this my score . Thank you Alex , this lesson made me search in the dictionary because words you used can have different meanings . I haven’t seen that “crash” ,for example , has so different meanings . It can be used to talk about fight too . Is a lesson about the many different ways one can touch another possible? Wether can it be to do harm , congratulate , give pleasure or stimulate etc…
.thank in advance .
See you

tsamp

    Hmm, it’s an interesting idea, but it would have to be a little more specific. I’m not sure I fully understand what you’re asking.

    Alex

I keep swinging my hand through a SWARM OF BEES
because I want honey on my table.
I keep swinging my hand through a SWARM OF BEES
I can’t understand why they’re stinging me.

Thank you Alex, you made me reflect on the richness of English vocabulary.

      the women who wes crying remaind me by a funny moment, it’s carries me back to one day when i was in class of algebra (2nd year of univ), a cat sneak into the amphi and got between girl legs while she was stunned by the lesson, and when she saw it she began suddenly crying,in the other hand, the whole classe began lauphing.

    Alex

Thank you for the great lesson and i have one question please , what about the word ¨fleet ¨ i know it means a group of ships but can it be used to describe any other group of things ?

Elie.mah

    Hi Elie! It’s generally for ships or other vehicles. You can refer to “a naval fleet,” “an air force fleet,” “a fleet of cars,” or even “a fleet of alien spaceships.” :) I hope this helps!

    Alex

Great Lesson Alex… To be honest I forget this lesson even in my native language :D. Anyway, thank you. You always teach good lessons. I really enjoy it.

You such a fantastic teacher Alex. Thanks You and greetings from Mexico.

    Alex

You know, Alex … I really hope we can watch a crash of white rhinos run for a while, but I’m not sure about that in the near future. Thank you so much for the video lesson.

John B

    Ha. We will see. :) Thankfully, I got away in time.

    Alex

Thank you Alex so much! Your classes are so fun.
I want to thank you for teaching us this vocabulary. I didn’t know that these words even exist. Also, the example of the lion king was perfect, I know because it was one of may favourite movies of my childhood(Original version, so you will know my age…), and I rembemer the SNES game, the last level was called “pride rock”. Now I know why.

Have a nice week!

Ramiro.

    That’s awesome! I never played The Lion King on the SNES. I did play Aladdin on the Genesis, though. That game had amazing graphics for a 16-bit title.

    Alex

Alex, that was wonderful.

lorie28irry

    Alex

“A murder of of lawyers entered the courtroom”- it’s a new phrase, isn’t it? I didn’t find this expression in dictionary.

Felix001

    It’s not a common phrase, but it does exist! :)

    Alex

Mr. Alex , sorry for asking but you have skipped my comment above and replied to all other commentators , have i asked a wrong question ?

Elie.mah

    Not at all. The commenting system is weird sometimes, and some comments just take longer to appear than others. I’ve now seen your comment and responded above.

    Alex

      yeah , i have read it , thanks alot

hello my teacher alex, i haven’t a question but i have a suggestion, may be it is not your responsibility, but if you like my idea,i would you to work on it if it is possible. iam wondering if it is possible to integrate a software in this website we can know through it the percentage of someone of covering the lessons of this site and his level even only in this site and so one.ijust would to reply me about your opinion in this idea and if it is possible. thank you alex.

SKIKDA

    It’s a good idea, and the only thing I can say on this subject at the moment is…stay tuned. :)

    Alex

Collective Nouns 100% Thank you Alex.

Littlebit71

    You’re welcome. Nice job on the quiz score!

    Alex

And how about horses? Is it a herd ? and how about elephants is it also crash?

Dmitry Fedotov

    Yes, it’s a “herd” of horses and also elephants.

    engVid Moderator

Hi Alex, when we refer to elephants: “A crash of elephants” (in specific) or “A pride” because -I don´t know- they´re animals so very proudly. I think that it´s of agreement with a context or an animal behaivor. So just in a fiction I would say: “A crash of chicks” …

elephant73

    Sorry I did mean: “animal behavior”

    elephant73

    “A herd of elephants” is the most commonly recognized collective noun. The less common one is “a memory of elephants,” but you should only memorize that for trivia nights with friends because no one on the street will know it. Haha.

    Alex

I watched this video today on my 20th birthday

Astri

    Happy birthday! That’s pretty cool. Haha.

    Alex

      Thank you! :) Haha.

      Astri

thanks a lot Allex,you’ve made a very useful lesson,that I’ve never known except “bouquet”.
is it olright to say,pack of mouse or pack of guinea pigs?

dlis

    “Pack” is pretty general, so you can certainly say it. Feel free to just use generic quantity expressions like “a bunch of,” “a lot of,” etcetera as well. The official collective noun for mice is a little weird and not common at all. It’s “a mischief of mice.” Don’t worry at all about memorizing it because no English speaker on the street will know what you’re talking about. Haha.

    Alex

Very useful class. Congratulations.

Danilo

    Thanks! I appreciate your feedback, and I’m glad you found it useful!

Eduardo França

Hi everyone!

I would like to practise my English with a foreign student on Skype. If you are interested, let me know please.

Take care!

Eduardo França

Alex, thank you very much for your brilliant lesson. I know that there are two collective nouns for a group of fish: a school of fish and a shoal of fish. Is there any difference in their usage?
I know that for whales one should say ‘a school of whales’. But what’s, for example, for herrings? ‘A shoal of herrings’ or ‘a school of herrings’?
