    Let me say “Thank you” directly below your comment .The way you explained both prepositions was awesome.

    Saturday, February 10th 2018

      Thanks, mieto. I’m glad it was clear.

      Tuesday, February 13th 2018

Thanks for the class, Alex. I didn’t anticipate you knew Kiki, in 魔女の宅急便 :), I have another question, under and below. I hear both in the song Octopus’s Garden by the Beatles (sung by Ringo). “We would be warm below the storm / In our little hideaway beneath the waves.” The song starts with “I’d like to be under the sea.” What are the differences among them?

Saturday, February 10th 2018

Hi Alex,

Hope you are doing well.
Thanks for the wonderful class.
One of the questions from the quiz. Which I did not understand. The question is
She scored ______50% on her final exam. In my opinion it should be ‘Under’ because you have told in the video that under is synonym for less than.
Kindly explain the question.

Saturday, February 10th 2018

Thank you Alex it is a nice class!

Saturday, February 10th 2018

I think #3 is ambiguous. The answer can be “under”.
Here’s examples from Google Books:
“Sixty-five percent of participants scored under 50%.” “Over a third of local NHS organisations scored under 50%.”
You probably meant “She scored _____ average on her final exam.”

Saturday, February 10th 2018

Hi Alex! Thanks for the good lesson!

Is it possible to use “underneath” instead of below and under?

Saturday, February 10th 2018

when t can use the word “beneath”

Saturday, February 10th 2018

Thanks again, Alex!

Saturday, February 10th 2018

It was a helpful video. Thanks Alex for this one. ♥

Saturday, February 10th 2018

Saturday, February 10th 2018

Saturday, February 10th 2018

for “She scored __________ 50% on her final exam.”
we use below instead of under, I observe when we talk about scores, we use below, is it correct?

Saturday, February 10th 2018

Definitely my score wasn’t below average.I got 100! thank god or even better thank YOU teacher Alex!,however,I’ll keep practicing to make sure I really got it!

Your shirt under the jacket is cute. I liked the movie “Kiki’s Delivery Service” :)

Saturday, February 10th 2018

    It’s one of my favourite Miyazaki movies. It’s great for young girls too.

    Tuesday, February 13th 2018

Thank you, Alex

Sunday, February 11th 2018

Thanks a lot Alex!!!
You teach hard topics making them so easy to understand ;)

Sunday, February 11th 2018

Hi Alex, tx for the lesson.
I suppose under, in the meaning of covered, can also be used when a situation is ‘under’ control, correct?
bye

Sunday, February 11th 2018

Thank you so much Alex. It is a very useful clarification.

Sunday, February 11th 2018

thank teatcher .you are perfect

Sunday, February 11th 2018

Useful lesson

Sunday, February 11th 2018

I’m wondering why it is “She scored below 50% on her final exam” if it means “She scored LESS THAN 50% on her final exam”. It should be UNDER, shouldn’t it?

Sunday, February 11th 2018

    because 50% is a measurment and not an enumeration.

    Sunday, February 11th 2018

Thank you Alex ..

Sunday, February 11th 2018

I got 80 :(

Sunday, February 11th 2018

thanks a lot

Sunday, February 11th 2018

Monday, February 12th 2018

Hi Alex, thanks for this explanation, now it is clearer for me.

Monday, February 12th 2018

Thanks a lot Alex.

    Tuesday, February 13th 2018

I think, I should practice this lesson more. It’s complicated

Tuesday, February 13th 2018

    A little bit. You can use them interchangeably for most things. You just have to pay attention to the exceptions I mention.

    Tuesday, February 13th 2018

Got 80/10. Thanks Alex.

Tuesday, February 13th 2018

Hi Alex,
thanks for a new lesson on prepositions which are really tricky to use correctly. There are another preposition: BENEATH and UNDERNEATH. Have they got the same meaning?
