    Hi caps,

    Honestly, the best way to become fluent in English, aside from living in an English speaking environment, is to use it as often as possible, and to expose yourself to authentic English materials. Read English news websites and books, listen to English news, and watch English television. If you can find an English-speaking friend, that would likely be a big help as well.

    Thank you for watching.

      Hi Sir
      I just want to confirm what you said recently in your answer to Caps.Before I came in US I didn’t have friends I could speak English fluently with,but since I Have got into US,I speak it everywhere and I read and I listen only the programs in English.That helps me to improve my English really fast.

Thank you very mach for this lesson. I think it is useful for my and my family alot .

I have one question about this lesson ist any another mening for blue .

Nasser from Qatar


I got 5 correct answers! It means that your explanations were good and understandable! I have some ideas about the topic for your future lesson. Can it be about some phrasal verbs and their meanings? I know that phrasal verbs take an important part in daily conversations in English and in American – English. Thank you!

Profile photo of Alena20 Alena20

    I will keep this in mind for future lessons. Thank you for the suggestion.

Hi Alex.

I didn´t understand the idiom “blue in the face” very well. Thank you!.

Profile photo of maricelas_110 maricelas_110

    Hi Sir
    BLUE IN THE FACE means for example you talk to a person until you get tired and sick trying to convence him/her but you never succeed

    Profile photo of macoumba thiaw macoumba thiaw

      congragulations Alex, l really like the way of yr teaching.by the way,in the above explanation the word should be convince instead of convence.

      yucel from Turkey

Hi Alex. Thanks a lot for your lessons. I’m doing my MA thesis on idioms. I’m using the idioms you and your colleagues teach because I find them common and useful but wanted to know your opinion as a native speaker. Do you think that these idioms are the most frequently used ones?Do you have any frequency list?


you’re the best teacher.. congratulations..!!!
I understood everything..


Dear sir

Thank you for the lesson. You are wonderful teacher.


Sir Alex,
I think you are great teacher – your spelling vocabulary and simple explanation makes you work excellent!
I think that is serious problem when we talk for a phrases (like individual) or phrases verbs. That is another level of difficult for the learners after there improve of the standard rules, exercises and tests. Or this situations began to appear and when we started to try to watch or listen real English speech!
Am I right?
Good lucky!

Hi Sir Alex, I enjoy and learn every time I watch your videos.
And I am hoping that you could help me in improving my grammar and vocabulary.
What do you think is the right modal that I supposedly used?
Do you think Sir my grammar is correct?


these questions or examples are whatever you say.they’re really useful after the lesson.
