ya,its gud but,what about the rest of the other tenses.
such as
present continous,and model auxiliaries??????
i need more lectures on passive plzzzzzzz

Mahvish

    @Mahvish

    with the present continuous tense
    (is/are + being + P.P)
    eg.> changes that are being wrought…
    with modal verbs
    (can/must + be + P.P)
    eg.> food production can be increased.
    > you must be restrained

“Your teaching is excellent! I’m very grateful to you. When I started, my speaking was not good. Now I speak English fluently. I never translate. I speak automatically, just like you said I would!”

David R Florez

hey.
firstly i want to say u r just great teacher.
but I am a little confused as am not able to understand the sequence of the videos and its getting really hard for me to understand.
i want to learn good English and want to do it in the most proper and effective way i can.
so if u can suggest me a proper way to catch the sequence it would be great.
by the ways thanks a lot.

samkit raj chhajer

Hi teacher , please help with this sentence…. I don`t know whether to put BY or WITH….. HERE IT IS…..”The hall look was made more beautiful ….. the lights.” I hope you will answer me soon…

Kate

Hi! thank you for your lessons!!! I want to ask for help. Which preposition to choose?
– The glass was broken by/with a stone. I found the rule that says- after verbs to destroy, to break we should put preposition by- The house was destroyed by fire. So what about the stone?
Please, help me)))))

I don’t know how you are doing is awesome. As all know very well, it is useful also no one deny being beneficial anyway To learn how to do this is proved by these guys. I take off my hat for you some as before. on the other hand I have been to U.K for 3 month but I haven’t seen someone who teachs successfully basically the way of learning is great.To be clear, smart, short, effective is so important. Thanks guys..

Hi James

I hope you can help me. My question is about : BEEN !
I am very confused bout it.

Mr. E wrote: this lesson has been thought up by Mr. E. Why is there ”the” been? Couldn’t i say ; this lesson has thought up …?, cause i also say i’ve broken my leg and not i’ve been broken my leg, right? Generally i do not get why it is not: this lesson was thought up by Mr. E.

I thank you very much.
