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

    mieto1969

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

      Alex

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?

FELES

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.

Manwit77

    It’s a numerical measurement, so it should be below, but if you say “under” in casual conversation, literally no one will notice. :p

    Alex

Thank you Alex it is a nice class!

Ramakrishnan Palakkad

    You’re welcome. I’m glad you liked it.

    Alex

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.”

Donny D.

    I see what you’re saying and I agree that it’s an either/or scenario. Most people won’t care whether you use under or below in this scenario.

    Alex

Hi Alex! Thanks for the good lesson!

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

glavrd

when t can use the word “beneath”

MOHIT AGARWAL

Thanks again, Alex!

Júlio César L Sousa

    You’re welcome again, Julio Cesar!

    Alex

Sanju

    You’re very welcome. Thank you for studying with me, Sanju.

    Alex

      You’re very welcome Alex !!! 🙏😇

      Sanju

Thank Alex, good class. My score was BELOW 70%, I’m UNDER my goal score. I need study more…

Wesley Ponte

    “I need to study more.”

    Honestly, in casual conversation, no one will notice this mistake, so worry about it on this test, but don’t worry about it as much in everyday situations.

    Alex

Thanks teacher….!!

Jakub Alvarez

    You’re welcome!

    Alex

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?

FcoJavier99

    You got it. :) It’s a numerical value/measurement. However, if you use “under” in conversation, it’s not a critical error.

    Alex

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!

julian menegon

    Keep it up!

    Alex

I like youre t-shots with Miyazaki’s moves and you too!
By the way i’ve got 10.

NataliaReader

    Nice job! What are your favourite Miyazaki movies? You can probably tell that I love Kiki, Totoro, and Spirited Away. I also adore Castle in the Sky.

    Alex

You teach hard topics making them so easy to understand ;)

knopfler86

    I do my best. As always, thanks for your feedback, knopfler!

    Alex

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

Dudurito

    You got it. There are plenty of “under” expressions.

    Under arrest
    Under control
    Under siege
    Under the impression

    And more.

    Alex

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

isakibrahim8315

    Alex

thank teatcher .you are perfect

mulhampharmd

    “Thanks, teacher. You’re perfect.”

    That’s very kind. Thank you!

    Alex

Useful lesson

dovgyj

    Thanks! I’m glad it had some benefit. :)

    Alex

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?

samuel.martins

    because 50% is a measurment and not an enumeration.

    MohamedAmineADOUNI

      You got it.

      Alex

Thank you Alex ..

flash albert

    My pleasure. Thanks for watching.

    Alex

    Alex

it was a good lesson, but the picture was not clear enough. if you do favor and solve this problem in future.

A.Navid

    I can’t control that, unfortunately, but I’ll let our editing team know.

    Any time. Thanks for studying with me.

    Alex

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

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

    Alex

Got 80/10. Thanks Alex.

Annie

    Nice job, Annie. Thanks for showing up for this lesson!

Abdulateef

    Hmm, I’ll see if I can turn this into something.

    Alex

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?
