    i got too

    addyaddy

Got it. I’m going home by car because here it’s raining cats and dogs, it’s a typical May morning in Northern Italy. See you next time, thank you James.

Canardo

    Is it a general expression, or do cats and dogs fall from the sky actually?)) And yes, it’s raining now all over the south Europe, my place (south of Russia) including

    Kubanez

      Yes, it’s a common expression but I don’t know its origin. It simply means that it’s raining heavily. Anyway, on EngVid there are several lessons about weather expressions and I’m going to cope with this topic, given that this rain seems endless…

      Canardo

        I see now, thanks. Yes, it is going to be raining the next week. By the way, it seems you get up really early – i have to wake at 8 a.m. by local time:)

        Kubanez

      It dates back to a time where houses had no ceilings and logs were used withhold the roof and the house walls;some animals like cats would climb onto the logs to sleep;however when it rained the logs would be wet and slippery, so these animals would fall. Hope I’ve helped you have a better understanding of the ” It’s raining cats and dogs!”. ;)

      jluispontes

        This explanation seems kind of strange. Is that supposed to be a joke or you really mean it ?

        Matthew Estevez

          ” It’s raining cats and dogs! (old-fashioned)
          something that you say when it is raining very heavily It’s raining cats and dogs out there! It’s a wonder any of the men can see what they’re doing!” Cambridge Idioms Dictionary, 2nd ed. Copyright © Cambridge University Press 2006. Reproduced with permission.

          jluispontes

        Yes, it’s clear enough now)) Though I saw somewhere, this phrase came from some 18th sentury english fairy tale book..

        Kubanez

    Hi Canardo, you did mistake. your sentence should be i’m going to home by car

    Shakhawat0147

“You got 10 correct out of 10.
:D” – thank’s James!

TimkaZhm

I was always confused by those prepositions, and now I get it. Thanks, James.

Chris.S

How amazing! Thanks for explanation, clear,simple and precised. 10 out of 10.

Barbarabarbizan

What’s the difference between “2. We came here by car” and “7. We went to the airport in a taxi”? Could I say “by a taxi”?

mglbrg

    You could say “by taxi” if you take out the preposition A. So it would be:

    We went to the airport by taxi.

    Otherwise, you must say IN a taxi.

    wellem

      its my same opinion , same fault as they said (

      elsoly

        same as me.

        shalinix

      thank you, Wellem. because of you, I figure out the question seven.

Mr. James If I owned a glider Can I say in my glider or in my plane

Ali ALKHALDI

    mahfud.issac

    Thank you Mr james it is very intresting lesson ..you are very smile…

    djaballah

Thank you James so much! But what about: motorbike, snowmobile, coach, cart, canoe, scooter, rickshaw, aerostat, cable car, golf cart, skateboard ON or IN? Thank you in advance for your answer!

Svetka

    For a Motorbike and Scooter is probably ‘on’, because you have to sit on the motorbike. You should use ‘ON’ for cable car, because it is a public transportation (Large vehicle).

    milosh-96

Very nice!

PABLO MORORO

Thanks a lot James!!What a really useful lesson for all Spanish speakers like me, who always make these kind of mistakes with prepositions!!!

knopfler86

I thank you Mr James

layinka8

Hi James, thanks for your lesson! I didn’t understand why my answer was wrong when I chose – “We went to the airport – by – a taxi”. I thought it meant – how – did we got to the airport.

alfred74

    it’s a little bit tricky, but when we say how it’s always by taxi/car/train/plane without article A; and when we go to somewhere in a taxi/a car

    BlackVenus

      Now I understood, thanks)))

      alfred74

I don’t understand question 6, why I have to use in? Please, somebody explain it to me!

And question 7, how can I know, this sentence means we are in the taxi now and we’re going to the airport or we went to the airport by this taxi?

zetorka

    Oh! I also have a problem with those two questions
    (6 and 7). Please, somebody help us!

    Mdweller

      “To come in” means to enter a room or a building. When someone returns from work or whatever, he/she gets in ( arrives at home),enters a particular building.As for the seventh question, you should pay attention to the article. To be transported by taxi but to go in a taxi.

      Daria Kasnianchuk

        Oh, thanks!

        zetorka

Thank you James

Silax

Thank you, James for a great lesson and a very useful table! But why are holidays not included in the table (at, time)? Do they subordinate to different rules?

mohd

James, thank you very much for your lesson. I’d like to ask what’s the difference between “2. We came here by car” and “7. We went to the airport in a taxi”? Could I say “by a taxi”?

mglbrg

Thank you))

Caelum

Thank you so much

alyaaatif

I don’t understand the preposition “by “when we speak about time.

Suzujack

Question 7, Could you please explain to me why the answer is “in” and not “by”. Thanks in advance

viestner

    Thank you very much for this very useful video lesson, James. It is very important to practice the correct usage of these prepositions. Greetings from Brazil.

    Júlio César L Sousa

    Hello! The answer is “in” because of the indefinite article “a”:
    * We went to the airport in “a” taxi.
    * We went to the airport by taxi.

    Júlio César L Sousa

      Hi Julio Cesar thank you so much. Regards

      viestner

        You’re welcome! Bye!

        Júlio César L Sousa

Very helpful. I have got the method how to use the word “at”,”on”,”in” & “by”. Thanks.

Lucia Loan

jack0910

Thanks James, I like this lesson . It’s very important for me.

Ukrit

Isn’t the 7th question wrong? it’s supposed to be By a taxi, not In a taxi…

Jody Kurdi

    Hey Jody. If there wasn’t the preposition “A”, it would need to be ” by taxi”.
    For example:
    He went to the airport by taxi.
    He went to the airport in a

    wellem

      In a taxi *

      Do you see the difference now?
      I hope you got it.

      wellem

Thank you :-)

Hi James Thanks for the lesson. At Question 7, would it be also possible to use ‘by’ as well as ‘in’? I got it wrong because I chose ‘by’ instead ‘in’.
Please give me your answer. Thanks.

sunhoek

    To say ‘by car” you would need to take out the preposition “A”.
    By taxi / in a taxi
    By car / in a car

monzirfoxrfox

Hello James, Could you explain me why you use “in” and not “by”in the sentence “we went to the airport in a taxi”. I think it’s due to the article “a” before taxi. I suppose I can’t say by a taxi but by taxi.
Thank you for this amazing lesson. In spite of my seventy three years old, thanks to you I improve my english. Have a good week-end.

90/100 I got 7th question incorrect and I am still confused with it. SPOILER ALERT! I am still wondering why the preposition is incorrect in “We went to airport BY the taxi” as it answers the question “HOW?” like

Addyzaccount

    Okay I got it, it’s because of the article “a” before “taxi”. Kudos!

Daval1

I liked your lesson. All the teachers here are amaizing but only on your lessons I see ‘real teacher’s tricks’: the board is readay, using a funny character that participates in the lesson too and a final overview. That’s important) Good day!

Sofia1

I’ve made 10/10 :) but I have questions for this lesson. I’ll use 2nd task for example. If I’m saying: we came here by car. Can I say also: we came here by bus or should I say: we came here on the bus? Because in this situation we are talking about how i get there, not about how I’m getting there right now.

Please help me to understand the difference :)

TimurMakhmutov

Thanks.

Ienaluk

Thanks

thiagovaz

Thank you again, James! You have given us very helpful tips as usual. Another tip to understand the difference between “in” and “at” is according to the time you spend somewhere. For instance, if you are “in” a hospital, you are probably sick and will stay there for a long time. On the other hand, if you are “at” the hospital, you might be visitting someone and will leave the place soon.

Eduardo França

Hi James. Thank you for making videos interesting! Can you please prepare a video about ‘since’ vs ‘because’? Recently I noticed that I don’t use the word because anymore, since there is no need for that. See, again :) I need your help.

(when it comes about locations) Thank you James for your proper explanation, I used to say “Meet me in my house” or “lets get together in the mall” now I know that when we are talking about locations the correct preposition is “at”.

I have another suggestion to EngVid, if create a chat room, with support video, all students have a opportunity to talking with another student’s, help to improve english an make more confident.

Thank you.

venicius

Hello how are you doing today?
first of all i want thank you for your effort, secondly i wonder about that why the answer for ( We went to the airport by a taxi.) is wrong? . Although you told we use (by) when we respond. and i think that sentence assumed answer form.

thank you very much

Hi, I dont understand why in this sentence we use in 6. Mr E. came ____ from work and caught me eating all his candy.

We also have an exception about “how we can get somewhere without a vehicle”. We use “on” foot. Am I right? Thank you in advance. Great class!

Why ” in taxi” ?

Ruslana Voitovich

Hi mr.James 😊 I get it now . I often confused to use this

Romy C.S

10 out of 10!!!

Julianin

In Q7, why do we use (in a taxi) instead of (by a taxi)? Because I think that the sentence was talking about the way of traveling!

Oso.Sumairi

I really like the way that you used to teach English. You are great… and funy too. Sorry if I have any mistake.

haniel1984

Thanks, James, I got it!

Pashel

I am a little confused by this quiz : we went to the airport in a taxi. Why not using by?
I know it’s in the taxi, but it’s talking about the way you get to the airport ,right ? So the answer is not supposed to be “by” ????

Grace v

Thank you James, Very easy to understand!

Regarding digital information: is it stored ON or IN a computer,a server, a disk etc.?? How about a link: is it ON or IN a website ???

thank you
derek

derek anthony

    That’s a good question and probably deserves its own lesson!

    Data, web pages, etc., are on a computer/server/disk, but in “the cloud”. A link is on a website.

Great lesson.I hope you can teach us more prepositions

zigmund

Sorry, I couldn’t understand why I’m supposed to use “In” in the phrase “Mr. E came in from work and … “. What is that mean?

yurii.arutiunian

    Is means that Mr.E came IN the room, or IN the kitchen, or IN the hall. In general it means, that Mr.E came INside.

    Aslan The First

you make it easy but it need a lot of practice to remember it easily

Hi James, Thanks for your lesson. I have a question. Which expression is correctly? trust in you or tust on you.

JorgeRIrigoyen

It says webpage not available so I took the quiz without watching the video. I got 9/10.

Question: Which is correct preposition for the following?
in or on the email
in or on the table

Calmie

    I think “in the email” because someone sent you inside your mailbox so I prefer in the email. and on the table

    jayson19

dokartjr

jayson19

What about a situation when a car belongs to somebody, like a husband, a friend, my mum, ect. but that person wants to take us somewhere with him/her. Do we still say ‘I’m in my husband’s/mum’ car. We are going to the store right now’ ?

Hi James…. I love your lessons.
But I’m in a shoppingcenter or at a shoppingcenter? ?

Langi

Very informative, enjoyed your lecture.
one thing to add on here, she goes to school on/by foot?
here we use “on” she goes to school on foot.

Afan92

I love you James . I could understand this topic for the first time . Thank you thank you very oh sorry don’t use usually “very” the lesson was superb ;)

hagivolkan

Hi James.
I like the way you teach us. It is super.

YayaLy

On question 9, I got it wrong. I choose by instead of at, because I did not recognize preposition “the” before library. So if it was just library then “by” is correct. Is my analysis correct? at the library, by library.

aclass

It was a superb lesson. Thanks for teaching!

Luiz Willian

We went to the airport ___ a taxi.
why should i use here in?

Rythmoboy

Hello. I appreciate your time creating this video! Can you explain why we say on campus, on the beach, on the playground, on the field, on the island…..? These are three-dimensional spaces, not flat surfaces, but yet we still use the word “on.” Also, it does not seem to be an explanation of walls/buildings vs. open spaces. For example, why do we say “in the park” and “in the woods” but “on the field” and “on the beach”? They are all three-dimensional, open spaces.

kniesing

how did they get into the airport? by taxi right?

9/10 You explained it superbly. xD i just dont know why it is ‘in’ at this sentence “we went to airport ___ a taxi”

Wira Wijaya

N° 7.
“We went to the airport ___ a taxi.”
Why the answer is “in”? If you are asking: “how did you go to the airport?”
