thank you Alex for this important lesson. please give us more lessons like that and more quiz. thank you very much


hi, alex my answer is not good. would you mind explaining me how to use must and shoul correctly?. thanks for this lesson.

engkus daryana

    “I must obey traffic laws” is an example where you MUST do something, because something bad will happen if you do not. If you say “I should obey traffic laws,” it means that it is a good idea, but it is not necessary.

    MUST means that something is necessary or highly advisable.

    SHOULD means that something is a good idea for you, or that it is advisable.

    I hope this helps!

You guys are amazing. I thought that I’ve decent knowledge in English. But after watching your explaination, still I’ve long way to go. Keep up your good work.


hi alex, thank you very much for this lession. could you please explain how to use the verb after “should” and “must”.
He should be sleeping. Here “sleeping” is a verb or noun or adjective


    Here, “sleeping” is a progressive verb. It follows the following structure:

    Subject + be + verb + ing

    You also have the modal “should,” but it doesn’t change the fact that sleeping is a progressive verb.

I’m really glad to get this website. Alex you are amizing teacher i have ever met.thanks for your help and keep going you are really good teacher that i think many people need you.thanks again


    Thank you for the compliments. I’m glad that you’re finding the lessons to be useful.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Alex how would i inprove my vocabulary?


    Vocabulary is all around you. You could open up a dictionary, but that’s not really the best way to learn since you might feel overwhelmed. I would suggest picking up an English novel, and to have a dictionary near you. After that, just practice, practice, practice.

    You can also watch movies with subtitles, speak with other native English speakers (if this is possible), read English websites, and check out grammar sites like this one.

    Good luck!

Profile photo of lakosta23 lakosta23

    “Must” is an obligation. It literally means that you do not have a choice in your decision.

    “Should” is a suggestion. It means that it is a good idea for you to do something.

    Keep in mind that I have only explained how to use these words for obligation, and not for their other function, which is speculation.

Hi Alex,
I am Farah from Iran.
thank you and your colleagues for your great videos.
I can not get how these lessons are sorted in the site. I tried to use them in an order, but it is not possible. I like to do all beginners lessons and then start the other level. every time that i open the site, the lessons order has changed.
It is very difficult for me to understand James speaking. should i skip his lessons or I should try? I can get the whole idea, but not all the words and phrases.
thank you again.


    Hi Farah. The lessons are not in a set order. If you click on ALL LESSONS in the menu, you can see a list of all the lessons on the site. Use the “English Lesson Finder” on the left side to select only beginner classes. You may choose only a certain topic, or you can choose only certain teachers. If you find James’s classes too difficult, you can check only the other teachers’ lessons. Then click “FIND LESSONS” and you will get a list of only the lessons you are looking for.

what dose should mean in the frace she should be here in a minute.or, she should be back at fourth
or when parents say to their kids you should be doing your homework and you are watching tv.does your explanation fit in this categorics. can you help me on this ones


    “She should be here in a minute.” — You would say that if you *expect* her to be here in a minute.

    “You should be doing your homework.” — Here “should” means what they *ought to* be doing

To Sir Alex,
Your instruction manner is influential,to achieve sensibility of profound grammer puzzels.

To all respected teachers of Engvid.com
I have a grammatical question.I expect you would resolve it.
A person is at some work,someone interrupts him,he gives up then,and again continue after passing some interval of time.
On next day,he has to report in English to his Boss,
He told,¨I WAS DOING my job………………………………………………………………………………
…..(Dotted lines are at his mind,what should i say?)

Profile photo of sareng sareng

    i was doing my job and suddenly X interrupted me and ……….

    While I was doing my job, X interrupted me for some minutes and then …

    I am not expert or native speaker. It may be not correct!


I really like should and must but I can not find should and have to because most often I get confuses that which one I have to use.

Profile photo of asimabbas asimabbas

    “Have to” expresses obligation, and is similar to “must.” “Should” expresses advisability.

hi alex your lessons brush up my grammetical mistakes.but i have a problem i hesitate much when i talk others.can u help me out.

amjad khan

    Hi amjad,

    Hesitation is common with speakers of any new language. There are a couple of questions you should ask yourself to try to solve this problem:

    1) Do you also hesitate in your own language, or only in English?
    2) Do you try to translate in your mind before using English?

    In order to develop confidence, one of the things that can help a non-native speaker is to TRY to think in their non-native language. When you stop translating and make a language a regular part of your thinking process, you will remember it and be able to use it more effectively in conversation. Basically, you just need to practice and be constantly exposed to the language.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      hi Alex,great answer about hesitation. I think it helps a lot.

Hi. whats difference between (Have to) And (Should)?!


    “Have to” is an obligation, and “should” is for advice. Very similar to the differences between “must” and “should.”

Thank you Alex

Profile photo of ben8t5 ben8t5

Whats deference between(should) and (have to)??
Thanks Alex

Profile photo of ben8t5 ben8t5

    No big difference between should and have to


    Hi Ben,

    “Have to” refers to necessity, while “should” refers to advisability. “Have to” is close to “must,” and means that something needs to be done.

    Hi alexmarti,

    There are many grammar books available. One of the most popular books for beginners is Betty Azar’s “Understanding and Using English Grammar.”

    There are many other books that you may want to consider. If you have access to a good book store, look at the English language section and see which book is best for you. Personal research helps a lot.

Profile photo of peajaesoon peajaesoon

    Hi peajaesoon,

    There is no perfect way to learn a language, and everyone learns differently. Websites like this one can help you. Otherwise, you can learn from films, websites, newspaper articles, radio broadcasts or online podcasts, and books. The best way is to surround yourself with the language. Knowing someone who can speak English well also helps.

Hi,alex thanks a lot for your useful class about should vs. must. By the way, I have a bouncing doubt in my mind about it, actually how to apply that grammar rule inthis particular case: Tom usually leaves work at 4 o’clock, and he takes 30 minutes to get home,he often goes home directly. it’s 4:30 right now, somebody asks me about Tom,so what should I say? He SHOULD be at home now or he MUST be at home by now.that’s what you call “speculation” isn’t it? I look forward to having your explanation about it. Thanks a lot and keep going, sir!!


thanks alex :-)

Profile photo of nadiaazam nadiaazam

It was very informative lesson. I have no doubts anymore about using these words. Thank you, Alex. But there are some other words that make me confused sometimes. They are “definitely” and “obviously”. Could you explain the difference please (with examples, if it`s possible). Or maybe do the lesson about it. Best regards. Natalie.

Profile photo of Natalie Natalie

    “Definitely” means that there is no doubt. It means “for sure,” “for certain,” or “without doubt.”

    “I will definitely be there tonight!”

    “Obviously” means that a fact or point is easy to see for everyone. There can be no argument against it. For example:

    “It is obviously snowing.” (you can see the snow)

    “Definitely” is more commonly used to make promises, but both can be used in other situations.

    “He’s definitely crazy!” (for certain!)
    “He’s obviously crazy!” (everyone can see it!)

    I hope this helps a little.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

Before I forget, three more words: “proper”, “right”, “correct”. How should we use them? Under want circumstances? I hope so mush that you`ll help me with that. Thanks. Natalie.

Profile photo of Natalie Natalie

Hi, Alex. It’s so splendid to be in communication with you. But I wanna ask you, which is correct:
No problemS or No problem? And why?

Thank you for your reply!


    Hi Vadim,

    You can use both depending on the situation. However, “no problem” is more frequent. For example, if someone asks you to do something, you can reply with “no problem.”

    “Can you open the door for me, please?”
    “Sure! No problem!”

    “No problems” can be used in contexts such as this one:

    “How was the test?”
    “No problems!” (I didn’t make any major mistakes)

    If you answer with “no problem!” to the above situation, your meaning is that the test was easy.

i like your lessons, because they are very common and basics that most people use. I like your lessons better because it’s very direct and not too boring. Not boring because you target those common mistakes not just teaching the boring grammar. Also, you try to teach things for us to visualize like you draw for the and the percentages it is easier to understand that way. I can’t thank you enough for these.

Thank you Alex I had 50 I Alex can you help me my speaking is very low


It’s still quite confusing though. I am a native english speaker and I had 1 mistake.
Shouldn’t we say that these vocabulary items are Modal Verbs?


Thanks Alex, I like your explication because it’s very clear!


what’s the difference of must, ought to and should?


yes :)

i get 100%

Profile photo of obaid1977 obaid1977

I realized that it is very important understanding the core meaning and situation of use that a native speaker speaks or writes.
‘should’ sounds more friendly , doesn’t it ? It talks about 60% possibility and good for someone comparing with must. Very good.

First of all thank you for your clear explaining :) It helps me a lot, I search whole the internet for information. This is the clearest information that I can found. But I made the quiz and my score was 80/100 So, my question, why is the answer of the 1st question should , why not must. My reason is to choose must if you dont eat the breakfast there will be consequents.. I dont get it, and question 8 why should ? Because if Juan dont sleep early that will have an effect.. My english is not so good as well, but I’m 13 and I’m learning 6 languages at the same time and English for 2 years already. I’ll hope you understand me.. Thank You :)
