    I couldn´t hear the lesson well; I think it was the recording volume; it needed to be turned up a bit more.

    You made a clear distinction between some and any James.

    Absorbing video in spite of the faulty volumen.

Narasimha

Hi james,
nice lesson, but i can’t understand 2nd question. what it means

navin

    The second question is now fixed. It was missing the sentence!

    James

Thanks James, it’s really good!

But I have some questions. First, I want you to explain the 2nd question. I answer that question correctly but I don’t know why? I thought the reason is that everyone doesn’t know how to answer. Therefore the answer is “any” :D. It doesn’t make sense! ^^.

Second, why we have 7 rules? I remember: positive (some); negative (any); offer/ ask –> expect yes (some); general ? (any); (if) idea/doesn’t matter; anyone, someone, anybody, somebody –> singular. Totally, there are 6 rules! Is this right, James?

muopmap

    I’m agree only he showed us 6 rules.

    Milagros

    I agree, qn 2 has sth wrong with it: 6 rules, I guess.

    totally

Thanks Mr.J!!!!

piancci

FARISYA

Hi James, you are always bring interesting lessons, make us love learning English. Could you please give us the lessons how to tell a story (may be a funny story) to our colleagues or friends ? this is very important when we talk with our friends

budich

Hey James … Thanks for help me, this video is fantastic … I had questions about this subject. But now I understood.

Rodolpho

Hi, James
I listen to you everyday because you have a strong american accent rispect your collegue english teachers. So sometimes I get lost and I don’t understand “any” steps of your speech, but I can understand the meaning of it, that is very useful for me because I need to learn american accent, thanks. But I wanna do a question…. Why do the English teachers in the world continue to teach grammar rules? In this way when we (pupils)speak we always think at the rules ….present perfect…no, present perfect continuous….now I have to put “any” (because negative sentence)…yes but it’s interrogative sentence with “would” so I have to put “some” ecc. We (pupils) won’t speack fluenty but in hiccup way. I answer corretly at all your questions on test-quiz, without knowing any rule (I made it before to look your video). So my suggest is… we should learn english like a baby who doesn’t know any rule but he can speaks corretly when you go at the first elementary school year, how?? listenig his parents, his brothers, his friends, listening everybody and relate with them. Sorry, it wasn’t my intention to teach someone something, I just wanted to exchange some opinions. Let me know something and sorry for my english.

Bye from Italy

Please explain about “any” in the following sentences: 1) Get any information you can about company´s loan history.
2) Please include any other information that you think would be relevant

Lupita

You mentioned that ‘somebody, anybody’, etc. are singular, but I noticed that, elsewhere, they replace it with plural pronouns. And I’m talking about English native speakers.

totally

Thank you very much for your excellent lesson. I have one question.How would that be understood if I used “any” instead of “some” offering something to somebody ? e.g Would you like any coffee? Does “any” change the meaning of this sentence a lot?

Luna

Oh James so sorry, You are one of the best teachers on ENgVid, but I couldn’t understand the obvious, then I failed in your test. I went to Rebecca lesson and my comprehension starts! Now I saw How ease and stupid thing was. Now I’m feeling good. Since the failed the simple test, I brought more determination to understand what I need to learn. Thanks, thanks for every teacher on EngVid. Don’t notice my grammar mistakes, but feel great
that I move on again. Regards Lydia
