Thank You Alex..

Saturday, May 26th 2018

Thank you Alex for the wonderful video, as always. Is it possible to say ” an item of clothes” instead of an article?
Thank you.

Saturday, May 26th 2018

    Yes, you can also say an item of clothing, but I feel that I hear “article” more often.

    Saturday, May 26th 2018

thanks a lot ALEX

Saturday, May 26th 2018

Thank you Alex!!

Saturday, May 26th 2018

Thank you Alex.

Saturday, May 26th 2018

Thanks for video and humour! Could you help me with the following question, please. Why is ‘many’ used with ‘clothes’ if this noun is uncountable?

Saturday, May 26th 2018

    It’s a bit of a paradox because it’s a permanent plural, which technically means it’s countable, but you can’t say “2 clothes.” You just have to accept that “clothes” goes with “many.” :)

    Tuesday, May 29th 2018

Thanks))))

Saturday, May 26th 2018

Same rule for ‘binoculars’?

Saturday, May 26th 2018

    You got it! Darn. I missed that one.

    Tuesday, May 29th 2018

Mmmm…I thought “pants” were singular on top and plural on the botton…

There is always something new to learn!
A smile Alex!

Saturday, May 26th 2018

    For sure! Thanks for checking out the lesson and for commenting. :)

    Tuesday, May 29th 2018

      You are a smart person. You have understood it was a joke:))

      Wednesday, May 30th 2018

        Who did the same?

        Wednesday, May 30th 2018

Excellent and instructive. Tx Alex.

Saturday, May 26th 2018

Thanks a lot, Alex! My result – 100! And no wonder. Your explanations are always perfect!

Saturday, May 26th 2018

    That’s kind of you to say. Thank you, and I’m glad you benefited from the lesson.

    Tuesday, May 29th 2018

Saturday, May 26th 2018

so intersting and useful! Thank you!

Sunday, May 27th 2018

The very interesting word “overalls”. It’s singular in Russian. But “overall” is not a noun in English.

Sunday, May 27th 2018

Thank you Alex for a useful lesson. There are a lot of humor and jokes in your lessons and tests, that’s what I really like about you. And you are always prepared, and you teach a lesson without stuttering, it’s a great job. Thanks a lot!

Sunday, May 27th 2018

    Thanks, Polly. That’s really nice of you to say. I’ve been working hard to make sure that I have as little stuttering as possible in my videos. It’s challenging sometimes, but it’s nice to see that someone notices this!

    Tuesday, May 29th 2018

Thank you Alex. You are a nice teacher. And one suggestion for you, always wear your pants in the classroom.

Sunday, May 27th 2018

    If I want to keep my job, that’s probably good advice. Thank you!

    Tuesday, May 29th 2018

But why its pairs?

Thursday, May 31st 2018

thank you, I got 9 out of 10 cuz I was confused

Thursday, May 31st 2018

hello dear teacher. I have a question. could you plz tell me why dont we say ” what did happen” and instead of it, we say “what happened” ? what is the rule?

Thursday, May 31st 2018

    Because “happens” and “did” both are verb but in sentence we can use only one past verb not more than one

    Tuesday, June 12th 2018

tnx teacher for your perfect lessons. I got 10/10. I’ve watched all ENGVID’s and I’ve taken some notes. those notes are a 1000 pages book.ENGVID= learning real language

Thursday, May 31st 2018

    Hello. When we ask what happened? infact we ask about the subject of the sentence , so we don’t need helping verb: 1)A car accident happened near here. What happened near here? 2) Maryam went to the park. Who went to the park?
    I hope it helps. Best regards
