“Engvid made me smile” is not correct? I used to write like that. “Make” means “force”…I see. Well, “Engvid helped me smile” is OK? I’m confused. But I got 7 correct out of 9. Nice for me. Thank you, Alex :)

Profile photo of Happy04 Happy04

    It’s correct. :) “That makes me smile.” Basically, causes me or forces me to smile. It doesn’t have to have a negative meaning.

      I got it :D Your reply causes me to smile. Thank you so much, Alex!

Thank you for this lesson!It’s very useful! I have one question…before I want to read or write smth in english, I make a sentence in my native language. It’s difficult for me to start making a sentence in eng. it’s better for me to know how it will sound in Russian. is it bad or not?????????? I think that it is very bad, because I can’t sound like a native speaker..and between sentences and a couple of words I have breaks.:(

Profile photo of MaryShevtsova MaryShevtsova

    MaryShevtsova, almost everybody has the same problem. I think you should do three things to overcome it: practice, practice, practice :-) Good luck!

    Profile photo of hiubhp hiubhp

      Like you said, it’s a common problem. If you’re a beginner, it’s totally normal. However, if you’re a high intermediate or advanced learner, you should be able to learn without relying on translation as much.

      Profile photo of Alex Alex

      i like very much your lessons and advice practice practice and practice and it is first comment of mine at this site i also want to seek english but i think it will be difficult for me

      Profile photo of asif hashmi asif hashmi

    When you start learning a language, translation is really normal. Practically everyone does it. However, once you reach the high intermediate or advanced level, you should no longer be using translations…especially for grammar. It’s okay for vocabulary, but grammatical translation can often confuse you more.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Thank you for these pieces of advice:)but the matter is that I’m sophomore. I study in the linguistic university. and when it’s time for speaking, I don’t feel enough confident to talk on various topics. And the reason is that I can’t speak in English. The only way is to go to English speaking country

      Profile photo of MaryShevtsova MaryShevtsova

        And When I read smth in Eng, I can do it without translating and I can understand everything) But, When I start to talk, or write smth(for example like right now) I have to make a sentence in Russian and then in eng

Is it possible to use these words with other tenses?

    Absolutely.

    “I’ve never been able to get him to do anything!”
    “She’s helping me practice.”
    “I’ll make him do it later.”

I was not certain about which way of saying this was correct, “to help someone TO DO something”, or “to help someone DO something”. Now I got it, Thank you!

2/10 :( very bad

Profile photo of adalberto75 adalberto75

    Don’t get discouraged. Go back, study the rules, and try again.

    GET someone TO DO
    LET someone DO
    HAVE someone DO
    MAKE someone DO
    HELP someone DO/TO DO

    The only one that requires “to do” is GET. HELP uses either one, and MAKE, HAVE, and LET all use the base verb after.

Very useful lesson!
I recalled song ‘Crazy’ by Aerosmith. “Thats kind of loving makes me pull down the shade…”. I’ve never understood the meaning of ‘makes’ here. Now I know it. Thank you a lot!

And now I understand the meaning of sentence “(You) have your friends collect your records
and then change your number” from song ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’. The word ‘have’ was so confused for me here.

Oh wow, thank you for this lesson Alex, I totally got the clear idea of causatives. I hadn’t been able to understand it but now, I got it. Greetings!

Profile photo of Serch Serch

    Greetings! I’m glad you got it now.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Thanks a lot Alex! That was truly a great lesson. Besides, it was clearly explained. I just wonder if you could tell me more about the verbs “bring” and “draw”. I guess they can also be used as causative verbs, like when you bring or draw sb to do sth. How can we interpret that please?

Profile photo of Esmee Esmee

    Hmm, I’m having a hard time thinking of examples for “bring” and “draw” since I don’t normally think of them as causatives. I mean, you can “bring” someone to a certain point.

    “You brought me to this! It’s not my fault! You caused this!”

    But it’s not really common to use the causative structure with either of these verbs. Sorry! Wish I could help more!

it was great lesson thanks alot Alex , but please could you make the resolution bigger . some time its really hard to see and read . big thanks

I’ve got 100, but if the phrase “I had him to clean the kitchen” can’t be correct, when I mean anybody (or something) wich helped me in the kitchen?

Profile photo of zoyka zoyka

    “I had him clean the kitchen” is correct. No “to.” I’m not sure I understand the other part of your question.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

    Hi Mr./Ms. Zoyka,

    I think you could paraphrase the sentence for that,

    “He helped me clean the kitchen.”

    or

    “I had him help me clean the kitchen.”

    correct me if I’m wrong Mr. Alex.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Thanks Alex. I’ve learned / I learned the whole stuff here. I love the EngVid lessons, specially Ronnie’s classes (about her humor) and your classes.
Let me ask you something… in Portuguese, when someone have the same name as you, you say he’s your ‘xará’ (you read that ‘sha-ra’, pronouncing both the first and the second A as you pronounce in the word America. The stressed syllable is the second one). How do you say that in English? I mean, which word do you use to qualify someone who have the same name as you?
By the way, my name is Alex Gouvea Vasconcelos, and I’m from Brazil.

Profile photo of alexgv99 alexgv99

    A palavra em Inglês é “namesake”. The word in English is “namesake”. xará = namesake.

    Profile photo of rbolisay rbolisay

      Correct. Thanks! :)

      Profile photo of Alex Alex

    The word is “namesake.”

    Ex. “I’m my grandmother’s namesake.”
    “I have a friend who’s my namesake.”

    It’s not overly common, but you can use it.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

I had my house cleaned once a week.
I’m confused. I don’t force anyone to clean my house.
I had my car serviced every month.
I don’t force anyone. I go to the service car or the garage, an i pay for it.
Forced?

Profile photo of aroibas aroibas

    “had” means you requested that someone do it for you. It doesn’t mean “forced.” “Make/made” means forced.

Thank you Mr.Alex. I would like to ask you one question…. What is the difference between TAKE A SHOWER and Make A SHOWER? Thanks.

Profile photo of Nittaya Nittaya

    We don’t use “make a shower.” It would mean to build or construct a shower. The correct verb with “shower” or “bath” is “take.” :)

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Thank you very much.I understand and I am writing on my notebook now.Can I say ” I like to have a shower after I have breakfast.” or I like to take a shower after I have breakfast.”? .

Is this grammar just be used in Pass Tense? Thanks.

    Nope! You can use it in any tense.

    “I’m going to make my sister do it.”
    “She has had me do that before.”
    Etc.

      Profile photo of nguyenthihiep nguyenthihiep

Thank you so much Alex. Your videos are very useful. Anyway, please let me ask you a question. I’ve learned about infinitive and gerund verbs, so for the verb HELP. Should I use infinitive or gerund or it is another story that not relate to causative verbs. Thank you sir.

Profile photo of poorprogrammer poorprogrammer

    Help + infinitive or Help + pronoun + infinitive OR base verb. However, if you use the phrase “can’t help,” which means you have no control over something, you use the gerund.

    “I can’t help sneezing lately. I’m sick.”

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Alex, your job is appreciable. Thanks for the wonderful lesson on causative verbs with clear and point to point explaination. It’s been a long time since I was searching for causative verb better explaintion but today I got it from you. Thanks alot

I’m confuse with the basic verb, it’s mean without plus s for the third person? which one is correct? “she let him go.” or “she let him goes.”

Profile photo of ikoiko ikoiko

    “She let him go.” That’s the past tense. If you wanted to use the present, it would be “She lets him go.”

Hi Alex! thanks..

It’s really a very informative lecture.. I wanted to ask about this: ‘ I wanted thank …..’is it correct? or I need to insert “to” after wanted? I’m just confused…Thanks in advance Alex..

Profile photo of kulet_1010 kulet_1010

    “I wanted TO thank you” is correct. After want, use to + base verb. :) Same with “need,” “hope,” “wish,” and a hundred others!

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Thanks so much Alex for clarification.. I was confused about it because some of my Senior English teacher posted his status on fb without using “TO” after wanted, so I thought I’m the one who made mistake keep using “TO” after want..thanks again Alex :-)

Hi everyone!,
I have a doubt, The question number two in the quiz, “Who forced you to do that?” the question is in an informal way, isn’t it?, It’s because I can’t see the auxiliary that I suppose is “did”.

I feel so thankful because of your lessons, I have learned a lot. ^^

Just wanted to say that your work is amazing.
In real life specially in VietNam, they don’t give us free lesson like you guys. If you want to learn English you got to pay pretty much $ to some fancy facility or some tutoring program. Stuff we learn in high school aren’t enough. they make up some cheap boring homework for us to do which lots of student in VietNam doesn’t do it or even bat an eye.
God Bless what you’re doing. Hope you guys could expand this to every in need.

Good morning Alex!! Congratulations for your class about this topic it is so tough for me

Could you answer me some questions related to this topic please

The authorities say that he can’t stay in the country any longer

LET

My answer was: the authorities don’t let him stay in the country any longer

Why is not correct?? Why is “the authorities won’t let him stay …

Another example: both forms are correct right?

didn’t let =wouldn’t let

He didn’ give me a chance to speak, he just shouted at me

LET

He didn’t let me or wouldn’t let me speak,

Thank you in advance for your help cheers

2)I had him cleans the kitchen.
4)I had him clean the kitchen.

hi! i have a problem with “to” in which condition we can use “to” here a question (3. The teacher asked us to do a presentation.) and the correct answer is “had us to” why not “had us to do”

Profile photo of rafiqasefi rafiqasefi

    Don’t get discouraged. Go back, study the rules, and try again.
    GET someone TO DO
    LET someone DO
    HAVE someone DO
    MAKE someone DO
    HELP someone DO/TO DO

    The only one that requires “to do” is GET. HELP uses either one, and MAKE, HAVE, and LET all use the base verb after.

    -Alex

    This is the pattern

Before doing the quiz, I wrote 10 sentences for

The second time I listen to the lesson with my eyes closed I think I learn much faster.

Alex, what’s the right verb: take the quiz or
do the quiz? Thanks in advance for your answer.

You are an excellent teacher.

Hi Alex,
Would you be so kind as explaining me the second sentence on the whiteboard. “My Dad let me go by myself.”
What does it really mean? My Dad gave me a permission to go in the past or my Dad give me the permission now ? How should be this sentence understood ?
First sentence I understand because there is a “made”, so this is past. The same with 3rd, 4th,5th sentence. There are cv in past form.

Thank you in advance.
Best regards

Thank you for this pod cast. It’s still a challenge to use these constructions fluently in a spoken language. But the ball has been started rolling :-. May I have a question about the question form used in one of the quiz sentences? I’m interested in “Who forced you to do that?”, so “who made you do that?”. Would it be correct “who did you make do that” too?

Get sara…! I thought my answer was correct because the question in the quiz was polite: Can you help me?
Is it possible both the answers are correct and the difference is in nuances?

Hi,
I think i noticed a mistake in your lesson.
I could be wrong but there in first sentence should be:
“me” is an agent
“the dishes” is an object
because
“me” is doing the action to an object “the dishes”

Am i right? I’m almost 100% sure about that. Can anyone approve it?

Best wishes to everyone.

Profile photo of marcin95 marcin95

In the quiz number:
8.Can you help me with this?
I think it should be:
“No! Have Sara to do it!”
in other words Asked Sara to do it!.

Because someone is asking: Can you help me with this?

Am i right?
