See you!

    Hello Alex. I have a question. Please please please answer me. I left a comment in your previous lesson, but you didn’t reply. Please answer to my question in this one.
    What does jaws mean in this sentence:
    …by the bloodthirsty jaws.
    I appreciate if you answer.

    nkh

        Thank you so so so so much.

      This error is very common among Spanish speakers; we use the article practically without any restrinctions.

      In my student’s days, I used to say goodbye to my English teachers using the phrase “See you THE next class”. I was corrected, but never told why I was wrong; I learned the hard way, so to speak.

      It’s important to know the sources of your errors. By so doing, you are more aware of the workings of the language.

      Marvelous video lesson Adam!
      Looking forward to your NEXT video Adam.

      Regino

Thank you.

cetinmih

    No problem. Thanks for studying, and good luck!

    Alex

yes, the comments are here bellow :)

Zahra

    For now.

    Alex

Just one question:
– Last month has been amazing!! (it´s June now, that means last month was May)
– The last month has been amazing!!! (it´s the 24th of June today, so the last month was from 24th of May up to today).
Why aren´t both correct???Is it because in the first example the simple past must be used???
(this question is related to question number 7 of the quiz).
Thanks!

knopfler86

    You got it. You can’t use the present perfect with the first example because it’s a finished month in the past and doesn’t relate to the present.

    Alex

thanks. it’s 90

Hey, Alex! thank you.

tati 44

    You’re very welcome, tati!

    Alex

Believe me when I say that I tell everybody about Engvid, this powerful and stimulating resource.
But – alas! – few of them come back to me saying something about their experience, so I suppose that they are deeply and definitely lazy: always ready to complain about any difficulty, but never oriented to make serious efforts to improve their condition (in this case, in order to obtain a better knowledge of a language).
Thank you once again Alex, see you next time.

Canardo

    Any time, Canardo. You have the right attitude. Thanks for not asking “How can I improve my English?” :)

    Alex

hey alex thanks..and plz.. put some video about reporting speech

Harsh109

Hey can anyone tell me where to start as I want to cover all of the content in engvid from beginner to advance and from each and every teacher can anyone give me a tidy order of where to start from engvid

Shrezor

Not very easy lesson but interesting. The questionary has been a little confused because sometimes you have to guess if it’s a single or a group of things, time is the thing but I will continue to the inquiry on this topic. Thanks a lot, teacher Alex, a very important review about this “the” before “next” or “last”.

angardiobel

    Not a problem. It takes time, and the more often you hear it in other contexts, the more natural it will become.

    Alex

      Shrezor

Hey Alex! That’s a great and very informative video, but there is still one thing I was hoping you would talk about.

What is the difference between

“THE last week has been terrible.”
and
“THIS last/past week has been terrible”?

If they mean the same thing, can they be used interchangeably or is one more casual than the other?

unpredictablecrow

    They’re interchangeable, although I’d stick with “This past week” instead of “This last week” in your second example.

    Alex

Thanks Alex! It is really great lesson.

isakibrahim8315

    “It is a really great lesson.”

    Thanks for your feedback, isak.

    Alex

Fralbeba

Júlio César L Sousa

    Alex

sir ım bad ın english how u can help me

Mohammad muayad kassab bashi dahhan

not bad, 90 .. thanks very much teacher for this lesson

mayco9999

I was learned the last taught by Alex, so next time I have to be waiting for new video lesson by Alex.

teoma66

    “I learned” is the correct form to start your sentence here, and don’t forget the article “a” in the phrase “a new video.”

    Alex

This lesson was so useful to me…
Thank You sir..

But I do have one question which is not related to this lesson but I wanted you to do that lesson for all english learners for thos who really wanted to improve.,, That question is how to say or describe entire movie that I watched to someone..
Particularly how to describe people and what they talked and everything that they said in movie…

How you will describe to someone any movie that you watched recently?..

If you could really help me and all english learner to improve english then you can make video what I have described in this command…

Please make video as I felt which would be really helpful to everyone…

We owe you!!!

Thank You sir!!!

Siva.CB

Thanks for the great video. I got a question about today’s lesson. I got 9 out of 10, but still confused when it comes to number two and 10.

Why haven’t you called me since (last/the last) Friday?

In this one, I chose “the last”. Because I thought the sentence is present perfect.

But it was incorrect.

Number 10, I haven’t seen him since (the last, last) family reunion.

For this one, I got correct. Because I thought, as I told above, this sentence is a present perfect.

I am still confused, because in both sentences, they are finished with the prase “since” and one of two has to “last” and the other has to “the last”

Could you explain to me more specifically?

EthanLee

Hi Alex,My favourite teacher in engvid
I have been always enjoying of ur all lessons so far…and certainly I keep watching and enjoying ur next videos…
But for Now I have a request if u mind….
Could u make some videos about some useful and common expressions that native English speakers (especially canadian) use in their daily conversation…
Thank in advanced..
hope to see u in person in Toronto..

haman87

thank you so much. this lesson is need for me.

HYOJU

Thanks a lot. Even though I paid attention carefully, I just got a score of 70. I conclude that One has to pay attention every time native speakers use “the next” and “Next”

Gustavo Perez Criollo

Thank you. I appreciate that.

Did you saw Rick last night.

metawi

Hey could u tell me why we cant say “The next month will be busy” but we can say “The last month has been amazing”

PriyankaP

mengham

Hi,Alex! Quiz #9. I think the phrase “I’ll let you know THE NEXT week” may means “…during a week”, isn’t it? Thank you.

bimolchandkeisham@gmail.com

God bless you

MOUNIR44

Why in the second example “Why haven’t you called me since __________ Friday? It has been five days!” is there “last” ? I thought that should be “the last” because he mentioned a period of time starting from friday till now.

MrocznyPierozek

Merci Alex pour cette excellente lesson.

beernaard

Thanks Alex, you are the best teacher.

Alex Godoi

Hello Alex, I have a question…why you used HAS BEEN in one sentence and then HAVE BEEN in other? i cannot see the difference, please answer me.

1) The last month HAS BEEN amazing!
2) The last two hours of work HAVE BEEN a nightmare!(why cannot be “HAS” like the other?)

cristian1310

    In my humble opinion:
    the last month – it has (single)
    the last two hours – they have (plural)

    rustamhajiyev

James

Awesome explanation!!

AbdulRahim310

No. I fucked up the test. This is my first unsucces. I saw the video several weeks ago and I may not remember everything. I fought that you can say I´m looking forward to the next Star Wars even I´m looking forward to next Star Wars. You spoke that sometimes can be accepted both ways thatś why I filled up the test wrongly. Never mind. I´ll watch it again and fix the mistakes. :-) Otherwise, Thankas for your videos I love y´all teachers from northern America. You´re the best teachers ever.:-)

Lukas

    I mean you teachers from EngVid.

Abbas naqawate

Good lesson,Alex. #7 is kind of tricky,though.
You are a great teacher.

Sonia1234

“The last week of university WAS really hectic.”
(explanation on the board)

#7 In the quiz: “The last week HAS BEEN wonderful.”
Alex, now you got me. I’m going totally bananas here.
I have to put on my thinking hat.

Sonia1234

Okay,Alex. I would say “This” past week has been
wonderful”.
I’m used to thinking (a lot) that I still have
a lot, and I mean A LOT, to learn.
Living and learning, living and learning…”

Sonia1234

hi, Alex great vid, tks for upload

oguarin88

You are a great man, Alex! I didn’t know these subjects. But thanks to you, i have learnt them. Thank you so much!

zell

Alex, I am confused, do you have a video about past tense on when to use it? My teacher said that we cannot use both past tense together like If you already wrote one word in past tense you cannot have 2 words of past tense in one sentence.
Example:”she did not showed up”. I was always confused by this.

yukino1989

I’ve a question.
If I rolled a dice in some casino and failed to jack-pot so dealer is saying , which saying is right?

Next chance or The Next chance

Sorry, My English level is suck.

M5payphone

Thanks for this lesson! Could you please explain, what’s the difference between ‘A friend of mine’ and ‘My friend’?

ekaterinaluneva

Thanks for this amazing lesson! Can you do lesson about modal verb.What differences between them?When we should use their?

IamDasha

    Hi lamDasha!

    In shorts, both “them” and “their” relate to the pronoun “they”.

    We use “their” to talk about possession. For example, “Those boys are playing with their dog” (the dog belongs to the boys).

    We use “them” when a group of people or things is the object of the sentence, they receive the action. For instance, “I wont’t lend my knife to those boys because it can hurt them” (the knife can hurt the boys).

    I hope it helps.

    Eduardo França

Hi Alex,
this is just to inform you that the lesson was as always amazing. Keep doing it. But I was a trifle confused with the question number 2 from the quiz.
Before I saw the answer I had thought the correct answer is “the last”.

All the best ;)

marcin95
