Friday, December 3rd 2010

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

Friday, December 3rd 2010

    “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!

    Saturday, December 4th 2010

Saturday, December 4th 2010

Saturday, December 4th 2010

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.

Saturday, December 4th 2010

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

Saturday, December 4th 2010

    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.

    Monday, December 13th 2010

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

Saturday, December 4th 2010

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

    Monday, December 13th 2010

Alex how would i inprove my vocabulary?

Saturday, December 4th 2010

    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!

    Monday, December 13th 2010


Sunday, December 5th 2010

hi i want learn you can help me

Sunday, December 5th 2010

i want talk english

Sunday, December 5th 2010

oh i dont understand this grammar

Sunday, December 5th 2010

    “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.

    Monday, December 13th 2010


      Monday, December 27th 2010

halp :P

Sunday, December 5th 2010

Sunday, December 5th 2010

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.

Sunday, December 5th 2010

    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.

    Monday, December 6th 2010

Good lesson.
Thank you Sir

Sunday, December 5th 2010

It was a good lesson Alex I scored 10 out of 10 from the first time. using appropriate levels of certainty while speaking is very important but it’s hard for international students. Thank you Alex for helping : )

Monday, December 6th 2010

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

Saturday, December 11th 2010

    “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

    Saturday, December 11th 2010

I hope someday i make my dream come true. i hope i didn’t bother you by asking you something that doesn’t have to do whith english questions, but i’m just trying to practic my english and thank you again.

      Tuesday, December 21st 2010

English language requires judgement of the context, before using it. Alex thanks for your genuine advice.

thank you agian for your useful website.

Sunday, December 19th 2010

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

Monday, December 20th 2010

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?)

Monday, December 20th 2010

    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!

    Friday, December 24th 2010

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.

Monday, December 20th 2010

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

    Sunday, January 9th 2011

Thanks Alex and for those too,who asked for this topic, I used to have a problem with this, not its all clear.

Tuesday, December 21st 2010

Thanks Alex I am from Bangladesh & it’s really nice to understand your speech about should & must.

Tuesday, December 21st 2010

Alex!Thank you for your teaching.You are excellent.I like you and your metood.I am from Uzbekistan.

Wednesday, December 22nd 2010

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.

Thursday, December 23rd 2010

    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.

    Sunday, January 9th 2011

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

      Sunday, March 9th 2014

thank you very much,I’m so happy to all of that,and am I wrighting right?becouse I’m just start to learning english! :)

Wednesday, December 29th 2010

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

Friday, December 31st 2010

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

    Sunday, April 3rd 2011

Thank you Alex

Friday, December 31st 2010

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

Friday, December 31st 2010

    No big difference between should and have to

    Tuesday, January 4th 2011

    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.

    Monday, January 10th 2011

I just wanted to say that the sentence with the restaurant is alittle bit confusing because i understood it like instead of paying your in YMCA for instance you better pay it in restaurant because it’s where they make meals.
what do you think of my reasoning?

Friday, December 31st 2010

hey i must need it

Sunday, January 2nd 2011

Hi Alex. I like your videos. Could you recommend me a basic English gramma book? Because I think I need a guide for improve my english. Thank you.

Tuesday, January 4th 2011

    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.

Monday, January 17th 2011

    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.

    Sunday, January 23rd 2011

Hi Alex! Thank you for lesson about must and should. I need help about how to make questions and question word.

Wednesday, January 19th 2011

    Hi nil,

iwant to learn about asking about appropiateness and expressing opligation using shoul / would have to .
i teach english and i cant understand this .

Sunday, March 6th 2011

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!!

Wednesday, March 9th 2011

thanks alex :-)

Tuesday, March 15th 2011

Thursday, March 17th 2011

thanks alex for ur help!

Thursday, March 17th 2011

Thanks Alex..

Friday, March 18th 2011

very good lesson for our
i have few doubt about WOULD plz tell me

Friday, March 18th 2011

thanks Alex.

Tuesday, March 22nd 2011

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.

Friday, March 25th 2011

    “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.

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.

Friday, March 25th 2011

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!

Saturday, March 26th 2011

    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.

    Sunday, April 3rd 2011

thnks for all your efforts. once again thanks.

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.

Shouldn’t we say that these vocabulary items are Modal Verbs?

Friday, January 25th 2013

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

Tuesday, February 5th 2013

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

Thursday, February 21st 2013

yes :)

i get 100%

Thursday, March 7th 2013

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.

Sunday, March 10th 2013

Thursday, March 28th 2013

thank you teacher.

Monday, June 3rd 2013


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 :)

Tuesday, June 18th 2013

thanks a lot Alex
