Does this three forms have difference? Which one is stronger?

Sergey

    Да, Серёга, тяжёл ангийский для тебя.
    Уже в первом предложении ты допустил 2 ошибочки (правильно будет “Do these three forms have difference?”)

    Student

    There is no difference in strength. You can choose whichever one you want. There are three options for the sake of variety. Your intonation can affect the strength of these statements.

thanks alex ., great that i have got many , tell may i use same for positive agreements ., for example- i have a car .,
i have either
is this right?

Karthi

    Hi Karthi,

    I will do a lesson on positive agreement in the future. It’s similar to this one, but “either” is not used at all. Here is an example:

    “He has a big family.”

    “Me too.”
    “I do too.”
    “So do I.”

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Alex please help me with the word “EVER”., how can i use this at different situations?

Profile photo of mkarthi01 mkarthi01

    “Ever” is often used in questions to express a long duration of time, sometimes meaning from the beginning of a person’s life until the present.

    “Have you ever been to China?”
    “Do you ever eat Korean food?”

    This is a good idea for a future lesson. Thanks for the question!

Hi could any one answer my question?
1.I had been in Australia before I came to India
2.I had been to Australia when I am in India
3.Before coming to India I had been in Australia
do all the above sentences convey same meaning.

Profile photo of rkakaral rkakaral

    yes, i think so…!

    because above three sentences convey the same meaning that,

    You use to leave in Australia in the past before come to India

    Profile photo of amitbalde amitbalde

    sentence 1 and 3 express the same idea.
    sentence 2 it’s confused; because is incomplete. it should say, before being in India I had been in Australia.

    isaac

    Sentence 1 and 3 convey the same meaning. Sentence 2 is awkward and grammatically incorrect because of how you use “when I am in India.” The mixing of tenses sounds very strange.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

    Sentence 2 may be like this “i had been to australia when i was in india”

Hi Alex , thank u for ur helping us understand this, however , i want to know if it’s correct to use her either or him either or them either etc…help me out whith this…thanx in advance

Marco666

    Remember, you can only use the object with “neither,” NOT “either.” You can say:

    Me neither.
    Her neither.
    Him neither.
    Them neither.
    Us neither.

Profile photo of malashow20 malashow20

“My uncle is not a good singer.”
this is one of the examles u have among the tests. I checked “Imn`t either”, which seems to be correct, but unfortunately It was wrong. would u plz explaine a bit more about it. tanxs again

vahid

    your answer is not correct because of the spelling, but if the spelling were right the answer would be right. you can say neither am i or I am not either but you piked Imn’t either. when you use the verb to be in the first person with the negative form it’s wrong to make a contraction

    isaac

    “I amn’t” does not exist in English. Neither does “Imn’t.” :) Both are wrong.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      yes,very wrong indeed

      kadiatu

Hey!first of all I want to thank you for providing us convenient English lessons those are helpful especially for us who are immigrant but also with less means to support sometimes our studies. I do appreciate all you’ve done in teaching us English for free.

But I do have some concerns about certain points in English:
Example: sometimes I hear people saying I am Home in stead of I am at home why they omitted the word “at”?
secondly,I have more difficult to use the word “to” in a sentence or respond a question using that word. And finally,why sometimes people say “I have five fingers” and “sometimes I have got fives fingers”? could you please tell me the difference?

Thanks in advance!

adam

Well, this is my first time here, so, everything is just new to me.I liked the neither lesson very much. It was quite cool to see that I am on the right trach with my students here in BR. I guess I just need to use the board a bit more. I usually use the examples I have on the book, but I think that I’d call more attention to the topic if I wrote a few sentences on the board like you did.
And here is something I’m gonna stop doing: I give examples with each auxiliary, so it’s kind of boring for the students. So, where are you guys nestled? In Canada?

Pedro from Brazil

    Indeed we are. :)

    Yeah, giving examples that aren’t straight out of the book can be really helpful, especially if the examples in the book aren’t overly useful and seem too formal. Board work is also incredibly important, as I’m sure you know.

hi sir, how are you? i hope you too well. first of all thanks for the helpful lesson you posted for us. second I am seems to be puzzled, when you said ‘neither do I’. It’s sounds like a tag question to me. can I say ‘me either’ instead of me neither? I really happy if you can give me a clarification.

i hope every successful for you teaching!

Deeq

    Hi Deeq,

    “Me either” is a common mistake that is made by new English learners, and by native speakers as well. The correct answer is “Me neither.”

thanx Sr i am asking for the number9 question” I didn’
t get anythingfor chrismas” do you thenk there is anather posibility olso “neither do i’?

    “I didn’t get anything for Christmas” is a past sentence, so you have to keep the auxiliary verb in the past as well.

Hello Alex. Thank you for useful lesson. Could you do the lesson about using “to” before the verb? In what cases “to” has to be used, in what it has not? Thanks in advance. With respect. Natalie.

Profile photo of Natalie Natalie

    Hi Natalie, that is a very large topic, but I can certainly try. Basically, there is a long list of verbs that are only followed by “to,” and another list that is only followed by “-ing” verbs. If you would like, try to research “gerunds and infinitives” online for more information.

    amn't is not a real contraction. We contract the words I+am into I’m. Am+not do not get combined into one.

    Profile photo of engVid engVid

thanks Alex, you clear up my mind regarding this neither and either. These two words totally confused me before.

Hi Alex , thanks for lesson. This is my first comment, I couldn’t understand one thing that is as you mentioned in your lesson,”I don’t have a car.” Answers as below and all these are correct. Me Neither. I don’t either. Neither do I. When I took quiz and gave answer (I don’t have any money) why shouldn’t neither have I ?

Luka

wowwww!! my score is 10 out of 10….thanks Alex ..Its mean…your explanation is very clear

Hi Iam an English student from UASD Universirty in Dominican Republic. Thanks for your help MR. Alex, you have been very helpful to me because most of the time, I am out of contact with native speakers.

This website is excellent for ESL students, especially for me because I am studying a licenture in English and you (teachers)have been my savers. Many things that I have forgotten, I`ve been refreshing them with your help. Thanks a lot….

Two questions:
1. Alex, you said that native speakers often use “me either” instead of “me neither”. What with using “I, she, he” in place of “me”? Do they make this mistake too? For example: “She neither.”
2. Can I rewrite the whole sentence and add either at the end? For example:
— She doesn’t like cookies
— I don’t like cookies either.

Profile photo of morfik morfik

    I think it possible to say.
    I don’t like cookies either.but I am not sure,you should check….though interesting question.

Hi Alex… It’s a great lesson, very informative. But I would like to ask a question. I know that EITHER is pronounced /ˈiːðə(r)/ in both BrE and AmE. However, I know that sometimes it’s pronounced /ˈaɪðə(r)/. The point is that I don’t understand when to pronounce it one way or the other. Does the class of the word have something to do with the pronunciation?
I would appreciate your answer!
Thnx A LOT! :D

I was expecting that this lesson will meet great impression and huge number of comments as this style of talking is really confused. It was great lesson and enough clear to understand it without any difficulties. I really got 10 of 10. If however made the test before watching the lesson, i think i would get only 4 marks….

Hi Alex
Thank you for this lesson. I have a question about this topic. I appreciate if you can help me. My quastion is about some sentences that their meaning are negative. How would we agree with some sentences that their meaning is negative.
Here some examples:
I disagree with her ( I disagree with her too or either )
I am unable to hear them. (Me, too. OR Me, neither)
I have never been there( So have I. OR Neither have I)
There is nothing left in my plate (too or neither)
