Monday, July 9th 2012

    No problem!

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

      “Do you prefer paper or plastic?” why we don’t need to put comma after paper?

      Sunday, February 24th 2013

        you put a comma it you have a complete idea, subject and a verb, in other words, an independent clause, or a complete idea

        Friday, May 20th 2016

Thank you it was easy and nice lesson

Monday, July 9th 2012

thank you so much

Monday, July 9th 2012

I would be grateful If you could give a reason why the sentence ” Do you prefer paper, or plastic” is wrong.


Monday, July 9th 2012

    When you give someone a choice between two things, you don’t need to use a comma after “or.” For example, “Would you like Coke or 7Up?” “Do you enjoy singing or dancing?” The comma is needed when there are two independent clauses joined together by a coordinating conjunction like the ones in this lesson.

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

      Thank you very much for the intersting lessons!
      I need a point of clarification regarding the first question in the quiz!
      When we say “the red ones”, that may not link the second sentences to the first one, I don’t understand why should we use the comma !!

      Saturday, September 8th 2012

thank you so much

Monday, July 9th 2012

Thanks a million! I’m learning a lot with ”youse” (like Irish speak) haha

Monday, July 9th 2012

thanks mr alex

Monday, July 9th 2012

Hi Alex!
thank you very for teaching us this lesson, but i have got a question in my mind. Would you like to tell the difference between so and and? I am not very sure about it.

Monday, July 9th 2012

Hi Alex!
Thank you very for teaching us this lesson, but i have got a question in my mind. Would you like to tell the difference between so and and? I am not very sure about it.Please

Monday, July 9th 2012

    “and” is used for additional information while “so” is used to show a result. Examples:

    I went to the doctor yesterday, and I got some medication. (you’re talking about two different things you did even though they are related)

    I didn’t feel good yesterday, so I stayed home. (the reason you stayed home is because you didn’t feel good)

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

thank you for the lesson
really you are amazing
I’m from Syria and I’m understand the lesson .

Monday, July 9th 2012

Hi Alex,

I would like to thank you for giving me this great lesson, but I’ve lost my words. I’ve searched for it, but I couldn’t find.

Is that correct?


Monday, July 9th 2012

    I meant “I would like to thank you for giving us this great lesson” instead what I wrote above.

    Monday, July 9th 2012

big thanks , Alex

Monday, July 9th 2012

I like this site a lot, so I will visit everyday. Thank you.

Monday, July 9th 2012

yeayy i got them all correct :D thx to Alex!!

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

Dear teacher Alex,
I quite understand the point you want to teach us in this lesson. But I only have a question concerning another issue in the last example sentence: “I wanted to go out, but none of my friend were available.” I don’t know why “were” is used here instead of “was”.
Can you please explain it to me? Thank you so much!

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

    Both ways are used in informal speech, but we use “none of them was” because of the plural “them” before the verb.

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

      Oops! I meant “were.”

      Wednesday, July 18th 2012

      Hi Sir Alex, I’m a bit confused about none of them is and none of them are….which one is correct? Because all I know when it comes to none must follow with singular verbs. Just asking. Thanks. God bless!

      Tuesday, August 21st 2012

      And also you told there that it’s both the same way, but aren’t we supposed to use the formal ones. Thanks. I am looking forward to hearing more from you soon. I would be grateful to that. God bless1

      Tuesday, August 21st 2012

thank u soo muchhh ..:)

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

hi all i found it very interesting!thk u

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

this is good, thanks

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

Great Lesson, you are a great teacher!

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

In the first question of the quiz it says that the right answer is the first one:

“She has three pairs of shoes, but she likes the red ones best”.

The second part ( but she likes the red ones best)of this sentence is really independent from the firt one ?

She likes the red ones best.(But what are red ones?)

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

    “She likes the red ones best” has a subject, verb, and object. Therefore, it is an independent clause. It is possible to write, “She has three pairs of shoes. She likes the red ones best.” Instead of writing the two sentences separately, we can join them with a coordinating conjunction.

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

Hello Alex!
Thank you for your great lesson. I really didn’t know much about this matter.
Take care and bye

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

nice, nice , good job

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

thank you so much teacher you are great

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

thanks a lot Alex!

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

Hey teacher, i’m from Brazil, and first of all i would like to thank you for all these teaching videos, and also I would like to ask you if it’s possible to you (or any of your coworkers)make a video explaining the meaning of the expression “take for granted”. I looked for the meaning on internet but I couldn’t find anything related to that. And about the properly use of ” at, on and in”. Thank you one more time :D

Tuesday, July 10th 2012

    To take for granted means “to handle with levity”

    Monday, July 16th 2012

    If you “take something for granted,” you think it isn’t worth paying attention to, or that it will always be there and doesn’t require any effort. For example, you can take a relationship for granted, or a person for granted…you think you don’t have to do anything in the relationship or that a person will always be your friend/boyfriend/girlfriend/etc. without any continued effort from you.

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

please please we need a writing tutorial series to cover all writing subject in English


Tuesday, July 10th 2012

    This would be a huge project! I hope we cover a lot of information!

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

I a’m an English Student, I am seeking a partner for conversation on the skype to improve my language.
My skype id ( sqsiddiqui )

Wednesday, July 11th 2012

Thanks for this great effort to teach English. You guys teach with passion which lead us to the right speaking, and improve our interest.

Wednesday, July 11th 2012

thank you Alex :-)

Wednesday, July 11th 2012

Thanks a lot Alex, for your guidance, but I was taught in my childhood that there’s no comma before and…please make it clear. Thanks again!
and please check my all commas as well:)

Wednesday, July 11th 2012

    If you say “I want a hamburger and fries,” there’s no comma. You’re just listing two objects. However, if you are joining two independent clauses, you need a comma before “and.”

    Example: “I drank a whole bottle of tequila, and I called my ex-girlfriend.”

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

thank you so much teacher alex.

Wednesday, July 11th 2012

nice! I learn a new gramar.

Wednesday, July 11th 2012

    We do not use “a” before “grammar” since it is a non-count noun. You can say “Thanks! I learned some new grammar,” or “Thanks! I learned a new grammar structure/point.”

    Wednesday, July 18th 2012

thanks for your lesson. it’s very useful.

Wednesday, July 11th 2012

hello mr alex the lesson was really great thank you so much and I want you tell me what is the difference between maybe and perhaps please .

Friday, July 13th 2012

what is the difference between ..
1) would have and would have been
2) should have and should have been
3) could have and could have been

Saturday, July 21st 2012

    “Would” is for possibility/condition.
    “Should” is for advice/past regret. (“should have”)
    “Could/Could have” are for ability/possibility.

    Good luck!

Saturday, July 28th 2012

Hi ))) Could you please answer my question. If there are 3 or more adjectives in one sentence, but they all are of different type. ( for ex green round tasty apple) should we put commas between these words anyway? thank you

Saturday, July 28th 2012

    No. :) It’s only if the adjectives are from the same descriptive category (usually opinion) that you use commas.

    Thursday, November 22nd 2012

Thank you so much and keep your good job.

Thank you just the same.

Wednesday, September 12th 2012

Hi Alex,
I failed on “yet”.

Sunday, September 16th 2012

Hi Alex,
Thank you very much for your great lessons.
I have a question if you don’t mind.
which is better to say:
I’d like coffee and water.
I’d like both coffee and water.
I appreciate you ASAP reply.

Tuesday, September 18th 2012

    Both are possible and correct. Personally, I would use the first one, since it seems repetitive you want both of two things. It’s like you’re saying “I want two of the two.”

    Thursday, November 22nd 2012

      thank you very much for your explaination.

      best regards.


      Friday, November 23rd 2012

Teacher. I took the quiz and the last question I chose the answer where there was a coma before of “or” and the answer was badly. Why?? The question said” do you prefer paper or plastic? This was the correct.. Why? No needed of coma before of or..

Tuesday, October 16th 2012

can we have more exercices with colon, semeicole, and commas. Thank you

Wednesday, October 17th 2012

Hi Alex, I’ve been watching you since a few months ago and I have still never stopped until now because you’re a great teacher , keep it your way.

As a non native english speaker, last time , i found phrasal verb was so tough subject but when it comes to your detail explaination , I ,ve found very easy to understand and memmorize.

If possible please come out with more phrasal verbs next time.

Saturday, October 20th 2012

    Phrasal verbs are extremely important to understanding English. I’ll definitely have more lessons about them in the future.

    Thursday, November 22nd 2012

unbelievable! i made 1 mistake! ha ha

Thursday, October 25th 2012

Explain this;
I like coffee, but my wife doesn’t ,

Sunday, November 4th 2012

    If it’s a really short sentence like this, you can omit the comma. Also, “my wife doesn’t” sounds more like a phrase instead of a clause, since it doesn’t have a main verb, so you can easily omit the comma.

    Thursday, November 22nd 2012

Explain this;
My brother can’t speak Spanish, and neither can I .

Sunday, November 4th 2012

Thursday, January 3rd 2013

Thank you so much Alex! a very helpful videos for everybody who wants to learn an English. Like myself I used to hate this subject in our class.

Thank you. In the sentence “None of my friends were available”, ‘None’ is in singular form, so the verb should be ‘was’. This is how I was taught during my childhood. But, you put ‘were’ which is confusing me. Please elaborate.

    It confused me too. Please answer to us, Alex.

alex i like how the way you teach you can speak in a neutral accent and in a very clear and the way you talk it’s perfect coz it’s not so fast that anyone can really pick up the words you say. so thanks a lot for teaching us , i’m glad you guys are doing this for free. so good luck and take care. –

what’s the rule for sentences that use only the comma and sentences that uses only the conjunctions “and, but, or and because”.
i.e. My apartment has 2 bedrooms. My apartment has 1 1/2 bathrooms.
The oven was sold in 1951. Every didn’t buy it until 1960.

Also sentences such as: 1.I would either like the blue car. I would like the red car.
2.Birds fly in the air. Birds have wings.
3.My daughter is having a birthday party. My daughter is 5 yrs old.
4.I will always remember 9-11. It was a tragic day.
5.The sky is blue. There are no clouds in the sky.
6. I wanted to go outside and play. Unfortunately it is raining.
7. For centuries people ate with their hands. A change occurred when when utensils showed up.

Comma is an important punctuation because indicates the exact meaning of the sentence. The policeman says, Jim is stupid. The policeman says Jim, is stupid. Thank you for that great lesson.

i am an average student, yet i was able to make it correct…..

Tuesday, April 4th 2017

“She has three pairs of shoes, but she likes the red ones best.” In this case, I wouldn’t use a comma. In my opinion, the second idea is not independent, because if I only said “she likes the red ones best”, we wouldn’t know we are talking about shoes. She could like anything else. But as you can’t be wrong, there is something wrong in my thought. What is it, Alex?

Tuesday, June 27th 2017

5. Which sentence is correct?

Do you prefer paper or plastic?

Why is this a correct? Because are there not tow independent clauses?

Wednesday, September 27th 2017

These short lessons help me a lot. Thanks!

Wednesday, May 2nd 2018

I got 4 out of 5. I am not sure the word “yet” without a conjunction.

Sunday, December 2nd 2018

Full marks, thanks for the focus on the punctuation!

Monday, December 10th 2018

In Russian we don’t put a comma in front of a conjuction, if the two sentenses have the same subject.
