Hello, Alex!
I couldn’t find another method to ask you and therefore I’m asking here.
I would like to ask you, do you give one-on-one lessons, using skype, for example?

THANK YOU

Nikolay, I currently do not do private lessons over Skype. Teaching classes and making videos for you guys keeps me very busy already!

Profile photo of Alex Alex

    Excuse me, Sir.
    Firstly, thanks for being so kind to give your spare time in making videos for us.
    By the way, do you mind if I ask you not about “could” and “should”?
    Well, I don’t know whether it was my mistake. I thought that you should’ve used “keep” (without “s”) on the sentence, “Teaching classes(1st) and making videos(2nd) for you guys keeps me very busy already!”.
    I mean,the subject refers to 2 activities, so it’s plural and the verb doesn’t need to be added “s”.
    I’m really sorry if what I thought was wrong. However, please, tell me why you used “keeps” rather than “keep”.
    Regard,
    Rifai.

    Profile photo of Rifai Rifai

      Hello Rifai
      I am not an English teacher but Mr Alex used (keeps) because he refers it to himself not to the 2 activities and he (of course ) is one person :))
      I hope that is an enough explanation for you :))

      Profile photo of AlaaObaid9 AlaaObaid9

Abaadi

Hello, Alex!

I’ll be very appreciate if you could make a video or explain here, if it takes not much time, the subject about how to use correctly “GET”. OK. I can clearly understand if “GET” using like a part of phrasal verb (for example: Get in, get off, get up, etc.) from definition of phrasal verb, but when I meet “GET” in phrases like these: 1) get heavy,
2) get use… it’s a little bit confused me.

With a best regards,
Nikolay

Thanks

Hello Alex I have a doubt:can we also use could/couldn`t for the past (yesterday/last week…) or is better use able to ? Which is more right to say ?

Profile photo of siganteng siganteng

    “Shall” is a more formal way of saying “will.”

    I can see you tomorrow. (this means you are able to see the person tomorrow)
    I shall see you tomorrow. (this is a promise made in the moment, just like using “will”)

Thank you Alex

Indi

Hi Alex.how about can be,Could be and would be? Can u tell us?

Kiran

Hi Mr Alex first of all thank you
what is different between 4 question and 5? why you said possibility in 5?

zahra

    #5 is “should,” and is not about possibility, but about advisability.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Hi Alex.I understood the uses of should and could.but what is the difference between could and
could be?

satish

    Hi satish,

    “could be” is normally used to speculate.

    “He could be sleeping.”
    “The weather could be bad.”
    “The other team could be tired.”

    “Could” is generally followed by a base verb and can be used for past ability or present advice/possibility.

    “When I was 22 years old, I could run for 5 kilometers.”
    “You could call your mom.”

    I hope this helps!

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      thanks alex, can u tell more about it.

in future point of view

Profile photo of ramzan ramzan

    Hi ramzan,

    You can say “I could not come,” about the past, but not about the future. For the future you can say, “I can’t come,” or “I won’t be able to come.”

SUKHPREET

hello,
i hope you are fine.
i want to know that how and when ‘could’ is use in past and future tenses.and what’s a difference between that.

brijesh

hi.
is that right?
1. could is used for present possibility and past ability
2.could is used to make polite way of asking
3.could is also used to make future possibility

so could is used in all 3 forms of tenses..present,future and past.

am i right?
please elucidate.

brijesh

    You are correct. It sounds like you are an intermediate learner, and you are asking the right questions. Keep moving forward!

Hallo Alex,

Your question was: “Which word is used for advisability?

Acoording to me both words can be used.

Your question was: “You could call your mother”, means
It is not cleat to me, that the answer: ‘It is a good idea for you to call your mother.” is the wrong answer.

Greetings Jan

Jan Schetters

    Hello Jan Schetters!
    I would like to answer the question you have asked.

    Based from the question given,
    –> ” You could call your mother,” means… ”

    ….The right answer is;
    “Calling your mother is an option or possibility.”

    Because as far as i remember, Sir Alex said that we must use “COULD” to make suggestions or possibilities. While the word “SHOULD” gives a definite advice means it is advising.
    In the question given, It mentioned the word “COULD”

    :) i hope this helps

Is it possible to say: “Today should be a party at this place (here)…” (someone told me about the party, I was arriving, but nobody is there yet, so I ask?) Is it correct? thanks for answer.
