Monday, August 9th 2010

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?

Monday, August 9th 2010

Your lessons are very useful in our day to day conversations. Thank u so much

Monday, August 9th 2010

I really enjoy this lesson. Thank you very much Alex

Monday, August 9th 2010

thank you Mr

Monday, August 9th 2010

Its a great job. I am relly impressed with this job. I was unawair for using of could/should. No i can say that i have understood the difference and use of these word. Thanks a lot and keep helping to us alway.

Tuesday, August 10th 2010

thanks a lot Alex can u explain about should ,i need more explanation about”” SHOULD””

Tuesday, August 10th 2010

It is simple and helps.

Tuesday, August 10th 2010

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

Tuesday, August 10th 2010

    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”.

    Sunday, January 22nd 2012

      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 :))

      Saturday, February 14th 2015

Alex, thanks for answer. And thanks for your video lessons, they are really good and helpful. I’ve almost seen all of your video lessons, great job, thanks again. I, as and others, I think, will be waiting for more and more of your lessons.

Monday, August 16th 2010

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,

Tuesday, August 17th 2010

    Monday, December 6th 2010

Hello, Alex!
I would like to understand better the difference between the modals “can” (could) and “may” (might). Is it possible to make a lesson about it?

Tuesday, December 7th 2010

Good work

Saturday, December 11th 2010

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 ?
When I was young, I could run very fast or
I was able to run very fast.

Saturday, December 11th 2010

alex.how about can and shall??i still confuse about those words.thx

Monday, December 13th 2010

    “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”)

    Sunday, December 19th 2010

      Thankyou so much :)
      Finally I got the answer to the question which I was searching so long.

      Monday, September 9th 2013

Friday, January 7th 2011

Thank you Alex

Saturday, January 8th 2011

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

Sunday, January 9th 2011

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

Sunday, January 9th 2011

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

    Sunday, January 9th 2011

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

Monday, January 10th 2011

    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!

    Monday, January 10th 2011

      thanks alex, can u tell more about it.

      Thursday, January 13th 2011

Friday, January 21st 2011

can i say i could not come
in future point of view

Saturday, January 22nd 2011

    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.”

    Sunday, January 23rd 2011

Tuesday, April 5th 2011


Friday, April 8th 2011

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.

Monday, April 11th 2011

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.

Monday, April 11th 2011

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

    Sunday, April 17th 2011

Saturday, May 19th 2012

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

Monday, May 21st 2012

    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

    Saturday, June 9th 2012
