Thank you sir for your great efforts. Ilike all your lessons and we need more .


Professor Alex, you are great! Thank you so much for your lessons! I’ve always gotten confused with those doubled letters, and now it’s very clear to me! I’ve been studying english for many years, and I was never told about this rule nor about ordering adjectives (another great lesson!). Hope to hear more from you!


    Thank you for your compliments, daniela. Keep watching!

Hey, thanks for the lesson. I am about to take the TOEFL test, and this was a topic I was a little concerned about. Thanks again and keep up the good work!


i am now a fourth year college here in philippines and my language research is about spelling having double consonants and silent letters and my goal is to find out the frequently misspelled words of freshmen education students of our school and i’m so glad that thru this research i also learn about this thing which most of the students have no care of

I mean, very often I write or say something in a way and later, I discover there is a rule suitable for it. Magic!

Hi Mr. Alex
I have a question. How do I know that Stress Rule is on the first syllable or in the second syllable?

Profile photo of windygafrila27 windygafrila27

Dear Alex.
Thank you very much for this lesson!!
It is wonderfull:)


Great lesson Mr Alex ,I like your lessons . I find it very interesting and useful ..
i have one N.B sir ,
CVC stands for Chronic Venous Congestion .,,, hh just kidding .
keep it up ( Great Teacher) and Thanks a lot for helping us .


how about ” appalled , cruelled, duelled , refuelled …” they end with “l” , so will we double “l” in all cases ?


Hi – just watched your doubling consonant video (thank you!!). What about the word row? It is one syllable and the last 3 letters are CVC, but it is rowing not rowwing…?


    Of course The final letter of the word “row” mustn’t be doubled because it’s not a matter of letters but sounds i.e. the word row as you can notice ends with a diphthong /əʊ/, so why to double the letter “w” then? I hope I could help you

Thanks teacher. You are very nice !


Thank you! Your lessons are really nice and clear. I am improving my English watching your videos.


The doubling rule applies for words ending in one short vowel + one consonant, so “exited” is an exception.

Jesse Corey

what a great lesson ! Thank you very much teacher.
btw, what about the words having more than two syllables? Are there any rules for them?

Hello Alex,

I have been studying your lessons and I wonder if you can help me with this question:
Is there any rule or explanation for some english words have double consonants in cases on which the comparative, superlative, past or progressive rules aren’t aplicable, such as the words “grammar” or “announcement” ?
All the best,

Profile photo of Joao Correia Joao Correia

Thank you Alex for your lessons it was clear

Hi Alex, I make Daniela words’ mine. I’m studying English for so long and for the first time I understood about doubling consonants. My question is; why teachers don’t explain it as clearly as you do, why why ????? Anyway, thank you sooooooooo very much. You are the best!!!!!!!!!!!

Profile photo of miletzar76 miletzar76

Thanks for the great lesson.
are there more exceptions to these rules?
as for ADVISE, it is 2 syl word with stress at end, but it would be ADVISED, ADVISING?!

Profile photo of Mohsen Lotfi Mohsen Lotfi

    I think in this case we have open syllable: “VISE”, and because of it we don’t need to double consonat “S”. Otherwise the pronanciation of syllable “VISE” would be changed.

    Profile photo of daniyar daniyar

In other words we need to double consonants in order to keep pronanciation of the syllable. Am I right? bite – bitting; bit – bitting.

Profile photo of daniyar daniyar

    Excuse me. I wanted to say: bite – biting, bit – bitting.

    Profile photo of daniyar daniyar

      For the same reason we must double consonats in the words “Quit” and “Equip”. Is it correct?

      Profile photo of daniyar daniyar

Great lesson, thannk you!

Profile photo of buyeromanya buyeromanya

Great lesson, thank you!

May I ask a question? According to the ‘cvc’ rule, should the progressive form of ‘ring’ be ringging?

Hi Alex!
Thank you for the lesson!

But what about such verbs like: “to cancel” , “to travel” and so on? They also consist from two syllables being stressed on the first one just like in your examples: “to enter” and “to exit”. But still the verbs I’m talking about are spelled with a double “l” when either “-ing” or “-ed” is added.

Is there any other rule that could be applied for such verbs?

Hello Alex
this video is very helpful for me but I have some questions about the rules you had discussed
1 when the stress is on the second syllable of the word we have to follow the CVC rule if somewhere CVC rule is not applicable then what to do, just add other things while leaving consonant single.

Profile photo of Anil Kumar Malhi Anil Kumar Malhi

2. you also had discussed the exception of the rule is it applicable only for the “qui” words or it is applicable on any double vowel word, if it is then please give me some examples.
Thanks to you
