    I can merry with you

    Friday, February 4th 2011

      I think you should rather say : “Can I marry you”… “with” is useless.

      Monday, November 7th 2011

        the right preposition is TO, not WITH

        Thursday, July 11th 2013

      *(merry and marry)*they have different meaning…
      merry =>merry christmas
      marry =>marry
      small mistake huh :)!!!!

      Wednesday, September 5th 2012


      Wednesday, May 22nd 2013

    You made a mistake, ^^ you must say marry, no merry, they have different meanings!. greetings!

    always you can use “too much”
    but when you talk about question you should use only much, i. how much…?

    Friday, September 24th 2010

      Hello dear friend
      How are you and how was your day ? Thanks a lot for your nice heya. Hi to me
      Thanks again

      Tuesday, April 4th 2017

        Thanks Amameri

        Tuesday, April 4th 2017

        hey Preemy

        Friday, January 5th 2018

    When you are asking a question, you don’t use “too”.
    “How much does the apple cost?” “How much sugar should I put in the coffee?” “Is there as much snow in New York?”

    You also don’t use “too” when you are making comparisons:
    “It is much warmer today than it was yesterday”. “This movie is much better in 3D”. “I feel much better, thank you.” “She is much smarter than I am.”

    Tuesday, March 13th 2012

    Hi we usually use much in a question; and too much when we can’t use much like in the sentence: “Our teacher gives us too much homework”. We can’t say “Our teacher gives us much sentence”. But one may ask:”How much homework does your teacher give you?”.
    Hope that helps!

    Dear my colleguea Valen, hi from Turkiye,I have already discovered your engvid.com. I was searching teaching english videos on internet I found you. I am a teacher of English in Turkiye and I have been teaching English for 5 years by talking Turkish. I always choose the way telling my lessons in English but sometimes I have to use the way telling in Turkish the english lessons.
    I am very pleased with your videos.Even, today I and my student watched your telling time lesson video. That’s why I am writing you is that I am looking for english grammar videos, some of them are available on your web but I couldn’t find all subjects of grammar.If it is possible for you can you give me your beginner vidoes,of course containing all subjects of beginner grammar. To do different in my lessons this is going to be new term in my lessons. Can you send me my mail may be a lik to download.
    thanks from now. best regards from Turkiye.

Hi, Valen. I’m from Vietnam. Maybe you don’t know this country, it’s in south east ASIA. you know, i love English and I always try my best to improve my English skill. I’m in the senior year and under a lot of pressure of study to win a place at University. Of course, English will be one of 3 subjects that I have to face in the exam. And I’m writing just to say “thank you”, you have helped me a lot in the past few months to improve my English.

Saturday, September 25th 2010

my score was 80.00, thank’s Valen:-)

Sunday, September 26th 2010

Hello teacher!
I always study English with you on line. I really like your teaching. If I was a teacher, I would model on you.

Tuesday, October 5th 2010

hi and thank you very much for all the efforts you make you and all other teachers on this website i really appreciate that and i wich all of you the best in your lives god bless you i find all these lessons intresting and fruitful thanks again i love you

Wednesday, October 6th 2010

Hi! I watched the video , but may I ask you a question? I think that “Too much” doesn’t mean exactly “a lot of”..it is more than ” a lot of” For example:” I ate too much chocolate” is different from “I ate a lot of chocolate”. The first sentence implies that I may have some consequences ( a stomach ache, etc…), the second is more neutral…the stress doesn’t lie in the consequences but only in the action..What do you think?

Tuesday, October 12th 2010

    You’re right, Angela. That is a very precise way of explaining it. Excellent!

    Tuesday, October 12th 2010

      Actually I’m a teacher of English, even if my English is not so perfect…it needs a brushing up

      Wednesday, October 13th 2010

        I liked the way of expression

        Thursday, September 15th 2011

    Good and logical point but if we write it as:

    1- I ate a lot of chocolates.
    2- I ate too much chocolates.

    in above case i think both makes same sense.
    Am i right?

      Am i right?
      Hello ! My opinion is “I ate a lot of chocolate(no ” s” coz’ uncountable noun ) & means you have enough chocolate .
      ” I ate too much chocolate” = means you ate a lot of chocolate , then your stom

      Friday, February 22nd 2013

      Hello ! My opinion is “I ate a lot of chocolate(no ” s” coz’ uncountable noun ) & means you have enough chocolate .
      ” I ate too much chocolate” = means you ate a lot of chocolate , then your stomach too full , seem like you are complain yourself that you eat too much.
      Any argument please do not hesitate to correct me. Thanks

      Friday, February 22nd 2013

this is good lesson.i like that this question

Tuesday, October 19th 2010

Hi, Valen. I’m from China. I’d like to ask you about “many thanks”/”much thanks”. I’ve heard many times of using “many thanks”. Some explaination say it is because “thanks” is a plural noun. However, strictly speaking, “thanks” is a uncountable plural noun (e.g. trousers), and “many” should not be applied on the word “thanks”. Please correct me if I’m wrong! Many/Much thanks in advance!

Wednesday, November 3rd 2010

Thanks from your teaching and it is really good skills to learn english. sweat

Much, many are used only in question and negative? a lot of is used in positive for all non-counnoun and counnoun?

Thursday, September 1st 2011

    Hi Valen.. Ihave a question. Why do you use “too” before of “much”?. I don´t understand it.

Thank you a lot

Friday, September 2nd 2011

Hello Valen.
Thanks a lot for your lesson.
Can I say: “I shouldn’t eat lots of sweets” ?

Saturday, September 3rd 2011

Dear Ms Valen,

Thanks for the engVid team to give us an opportunity to learn English. I need clarification on the following usage:-
While GPS stands for Global Positioning System, why we use ‘GPS system’? like ‘PIN number’ where PIN stands for Personal Identification Number.

An early reply is requested.

Regards, Basheer

Tuesday, September 6th 2011

    That’s just because people aren’t that smart. The examples you’ve given are mistakes. People *do* say ‘PIN number’, even though it means ‘Personal Identification Number Number’. So it is a mistake, but a common one. Sometimes, over time, people get so used to the shortform, that it becomes accepted, though, because most don’t even remember or know what the letters are supposed to stand for. For example: ‘DC’ is short for ‘Detective Comics’, but the company itself is now called ‘DC Comics’ — which means ‘Detective Comics Comics’! But because most people don’t really remember what DC stands for, they are now simply using DC as a name with no meaning, and so can add the ‘Comics’ to it. Does that make sense?

    Wednesday, September 7th 2011

      I am obliged for your quick response/clarification. I think it will be better to follow the majority whether it’s right or wrong.

      I appreciate the engVid Team for for their great effort ! Thank you very much.

      Thursday, September 8th 2011

Friday, October 7th 2011

i try to do the quiz but it doesn’t open

Monday, October 10th 2011

Hey! Do we say how many english lessons do you go to or how much english lessons do you go to. Because english is an uncountalbe noun and lessons is a countable noun. Please reply :D Goodbye and have a nice day.

Friday, October 14th 2011


    Please remember the following points.

    How much ….? = uncountable nouns
    For example: How much coffee do you drink?
    How many ….? = countable nouns
    For example: How many cups of coffee do you drink?

    Let me explain about your question:

    Point # 1: You can’t say how much English lessons do you go? Because much is represent uncountable nouns.

    Point # 2: The question you meant to say how many lessons are you read in English subject? Instead of saying how many English lessons do you go to?

    Hope my explanation is helped out to you and please do let me know if you have any other doubts or also do let me know if you are not clear about this doubt, I keen to help you.

    Warm Regards,
    Mohammed Shahith (India)

Can I simply say what a relief to seek out someone who really is aware of what theyre speaking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know the way to convey a difficulty to light and make it important. Extra people must read this and perceive this facet of the story. I cant believe youre not more widespread because you undoubtedly have the gift.

Friday, December 30th 2011

Thank you for yor useful lesson!
I always use “too many, too much, a lot of” in the affirmative setences, ” many, much” in the negative and interrogative sentences. Tell me, please, when we can use “a lot of” in the interrogative sentences.
I saw it in my textbook, but I don’t understand!

Thursday, January 5th 2012

    Nobody wants to answer my questions. What a pity!

    Saturday, January 21st 2012

I have another question. When must we use words “dad, mum, granny” with articles and when we don’t? If they start with the capital letters, we don’t use articles, do we?

Thursday, January 5th 2012

Hey Valen, your teaching is best and your explaining is also best. i like your english learning . that`s why I can undestand easy.

Thursday, January 5th 2012

I learned so much from your lesson about much, many, and a lot of. Its time to get many more ideas into my head, but first I am going to need a lot of coffee to keep me from having much anxiety.

Friday, January 6th 2012

Hi Velen,

When should we use ‘too much , a lot of’ in uncountable nouns ?

should we use ‘too much’ in reported speech, when speaking about uncountable nouns ?

for eg:

I’ve added a lot of sugar in cofee.

i’ve added too much sugar in cofee

which should be apporopriate to use in daily usage?

Saturday, January 7th 2012

    Hi Sathya Narayanan,
    1.When should we use ‘too much, a lot of’ in uncountable nouns?
    Reply: When you are sure/familiar with uncountable nouns, you can use too much/ a lot of with uncountable noun.
    Following of the words are uncountable noun and please refer it, hope it would help in future.
    • music, art, love, happiness
    • advice, information, news
    • furniture, luggage
    • rice, sugar, butter, water
    • electricity, gas, power
    • money, currency
    Here are some more examples of countable and uncountable nouns:
    Countable Uncountable
    dollar money
    song music
    suitcase luggage
    table furniture
    battery electricity
    bottle wine
    report information
    tip advice
    journey travel
    job work
    view scenery
    2. Should we use ‘too much’ in reported speech, when speaking about uncountable nouns?
    Reply: Of course, you do.
    The example given by you it’s crystal clear for Uncountable Noun
    for eg:
    I’ve added a lot of sugar in coffee.
    I’ve added too much sugar in coffee
    Which should be appropriate to use in daily usage?
    Reply: This question I didn’t understand properly, if you get time please reply back to this reply

Thursday, January 19th 2012


Much means more and too much in the sense extra more.

Much Example:

This much of apples’ are enough for me

Too Much Example:

Taking too much of apples creates health/stomach problem.

Warm Regards,
Mohammed Shahith (India)

Thursday, January 19th 2012

    Im sorry you are incorrect, as much:non-countable
    and apples:countable
    so you would have to write “I ate too many apples” as many is countable

Re use of MUCH: I was looking for an explanation of why you cannot say ‘I have much money’ – it seems to me you use it in the negative only apart from the ‘too much’ situation.

Thursday, March 1st 2012

Can I use a lot of in negative sentences and questions?

Saturday, March 24th 2012

Good class!
I have a question for you, When i used any a few?.
For example in the following sentence which quantifiers are correct?
(Some/any/a few) of the fruit in this bowl is rotten.

I think the answer is “some” because the fruit in this case is uncountable.

Thank you.

HI valen

Hello velan
I am khaalid from Somalia. I watched part of your lessons I m so glad because your lectures are useful and easily understandable. Dear teacher I would like to say something about the duration of our lectures. The lectures are too short .Please extend the period for 5 minutes to 10 or 15 minutes if it is possible,
Thank you wishes you all the best.

Tuesday, October 2nd 2012

Thank you,very MUCH.

Tuesday, October 9th 2012

Thanks! This video is very helpful.

Wednesday, October 10th 2012

Thanks a lot, but there is something you didn’t mention when you explained the lesson. As you know, we can use ‘much’ or ‘a lot of’ with uncountable nouns, but you didn’t tell us about the use of ‘much’ and ‘a lot of’. To make myself clear, can we use ‘much’ without ‘too’ instead of ‘a lot of’ in positive sentences or we can only use ‘much’ with negative or questions. Please I am just talking about ‘much’ not about ‘too much’.
