Annie

thanks a lot Mr. James.
i would like to ask,do know how many lessons left to finish this course in EngVid? because we reached to 1213 lessons until now ?!!

mohamediha

    I question me the same. But I think that it will never finish because The exercise to learn never finish, The knowledge is unlimited, is a diary activity.

    Herlen Murieles

      you are right my friend.

      mohamediha

        i love your answer

        minhhangtdn

Francisco Carlos

thanks a lot but it`s so difficult for me. i`ll watch more videos on the youtube on this theme.

Grypis

A revision of conjunctions very useful, I have remembered my first doubts with this types of grammatical structures, overall with the two positions and pronunciations of “Either…or” (choice) or “not..either” (negative). A great video class and very useful to follow studying English. Thanks a lot, teacher James, you rock.

Scouby96

Thank you James

Suhail yemen

Hi! Sorry, I have a question, probably a stupid one, but this sentence doesn’t sound me correct:
“Not only was it of great quality but it was also cheap”, why is it not “not only it WAS of great..”? I mean why the subject is after the verb?

SaraSCV

    It’s the correct sentence. It’s the inversion. This construction is used to emphasize something.
    To build such kind of sentence you reverse the subject and the verb; add the the auxiliary verb for tenses.

The question to admin: why does the video with Gill about queen family disappear? I watched it only once and want to repeat! There wasn’t either rude or disrespectful information in it? Is it due to some kind of censorship?

nataanna

Queen’s family, sorry

nataanna

Either learning English or French is one of the first steps for migrating to Canada.

Abedmak

not only do you are funny but also you are excellent teacher .
either you teach us English or we won’t learn .
both my friend and i like you ,James

yasser Daoud

Hello James. On this lesson I got a doubt. For example in this case “not only did he finish, but he also got the highest score in the class”. Instead did he finish, could I say: not only he finished, but also… There is another case: “not only do they live on the same street, but they also work in the same office” why put “do” before they. Would be wrong if I say: not only they live on the same street, but they also work in the same office?

Liscamposrosa

    Yeah, I’m joining to the question. Why need to use so complicated contruction?

    Aslan The First

Thank you so much i got 9/9 yayyyy

fabio Antolinez

The way that James teach is very interesting and makes me easier to understand the lesson. Thank you very much James :D

PS : I like Mr. E. LOL

sisca y

“Either A or B” is a frustrating expression to me, because apparently it doesn’t have a logical equivalent: depending on the context, it could be an “inclusive or” (A, B or both) or a “selection/exclusive or” (A or B, but not both). Natural language is not as precise as logic, I guess =*

Pedro

oooh amazing teacher so happy for being member here

Reem 016

NICE TEACHING

Joshuasriram

Phatanun

Not only is your lesson interesting but your voice is also really clear.
Many thanks! :D

Hope3c

Thanks a lot! Love your lessons! Everything is clear and easy to understand.
But have 1 question:I have a sentence in a book (Neither Jack nor Brian is strong) I think it’s a mistake (is) it should be (are) or it is possible to use singular as well?
Thanks!

Irina Syvokon

    Nope! We use singular verb with either or neither
    so, “Neither Jack nor Brian is strong” is correct one.

    Hassanrazaa

      but if both nouns are plural then we use plural verb with that sentence.

      Hassanrazaa

Not only your lectures inspired me but it also helps me learn English.

Hassanrazaa

Both you and engvid’s team are teaching English very well.

is it correct?

Hassanrazaa

Not only did it smell,but it also tasted funny.

Is it mandatory to use the auxiliary verb in the first clause (did it smell)? Could it be: “Not only it smelt, but also tasted funny”?

Edmilson Medeiros

9 for 9 ,great!

Raynza

thanks a lot, your explanations not only are brilliant but also are helping me improve my English skills.

Calub

Hi James, I appreciate the wonderful class you have here and the example sentences are very nice. ;)
One quick question though, in the no. 3 example you gave in the latter half of the video–
“Neither the woman nor the man were happy with the answer.”
According to one of the grammar book I have (perhaps it’s not so correct?), the verb should be aligned with the subject that is closer to it, and hence in this case the verb should be “was” (to be aligned with “the man”), instead of “were”.
So I’m confused here. It would be great if you could kindly clarify this particular grammatical rule for me. Thanks a lot for your help.

zhupeidewudi

Thanx James, I want to say hello to you and the rest of a students, I am new here, your lessons are great, usefull and you are really funny, I laugh every time I watch your lessons :)).

It is bothering me something in this lesson. I am confused about the tence in sentences when we talk about negation (not only-but also). Example: “Not only was it of great quality, but it was also cheep”

In first part of a sentence we have a question form (not only WAS IT of..), don’t we need to say “Not only IT WAS of great quality, but it was also cheep” ?

other students can also help, thank you
