Hello, Alex.
Thank you for your very impressive lesson. Your efforts are never worthless and as well as you don’t seem to be jaded about your work, shall we expect “shakespear’s” lessons to be continued?

atereshenkova2016

    We’ll see! I’d like to do verbs invented by Shakespeare next. :) It won’t be right away though.

LarissaFB

Hi Alex. in one word it was “wonderful”

Mohsen

Once again a great video class! You are the best Alex. By the way when you are presenting synonyms for ‘worthless’ I thought I heard the word “nada” … was it that? If so it is the same word used in Portuguese. Thank you.

John B

    I definitely said “nada.” English speakers use it as well, but they also know the origin is Spanish.

    Alex

Than you Alex ! for wonderful and simple words you have chosen to explain for beginners like me. it has helped me in improve my English.

rameshwar rao p

Thanks for the lesson, Alex, it’s very informative.

thank you alex.

Oussama Baabid

I have some questions that related to ielts
I have one book called ielts advantage writing which published into 2011 five years ago. Do you think it is effective book anyway
Second question cambridge 1 -10 series ielts materials are great to prepare but do not know how to study for example should I mark every stranger word and learn or not like that
It would be great if somebody at engvid did lesson on how to study effective from ielts preparation books
Good suggestion I guess

SHAHRUZA

Thanks Alex. I enjoyed this lesson but It’s confused to me the diference between cold-blooded and lackluster. Can you help me?

Ronald Pinto

    Hi! Well let me try with an example: if you are lackluster, it mean, that you work without passion, your work is too poor; if you are cold-blooded, it mean, you are a person that does not have feelings to do something, like we say.. you do not have heart! I hope you get it now!

    JGeorge

Great job ..thanks
i want to study mastEr, can you help me ?

batoul abd almuhsin

A lot of thanks, Alex. The lesson is usefull and interesting.

Andrei Votiakov

Alex, you opened up a whole new world to me.
Thanks! Shame on me, I didnt know, Shakespeare was such a creator.

Lisicha

    Absolutely. It’s why he’s studied in just about every English-speaking high school and university.

    Alex

Thank You Alex! You’ve made my day with the : “shake shake shake…” It was a very good lesson about adjectives, I knew some of them before but I didn’t know how to use them.

Thank you again.
Bye!

Ramiro.

    You’re welcome! I’m glad some people enjoyed my ridiculous singing and dancing. Haha.

Thank you Alex!

hello, Alex
how to pronounce “wound” as a noun and “wound” as past tense of “wind”?
wound=food=mood
wound=band=land
is that scale right?

fahdbensalman72

    You got the first one, but the second one is closer to wound=round=found.

    Alex

Hello, Alex
when to use “worth” and “worthy” as adjectives?

fahdbensalman72

Hello, Alex
when to use “worth” and “worthy” as adjectives?

fahdbensalman72

Thanks Alex for your video.

Tuonlychhoung

Thank’s a lot Alex. I’ve a huge problem concerning the pronunciation of “I” because sometimes we pronounce in a certain way like in liver (I’m gastroenterologist), distance, divorce, famine, notice, prefix etc…and sometime like in life, profile, precise, mobile etc, and I didn’t find the rule about that. Could you help me? Thank you so much Alex.

nareshdev

Sir.Alex…You are a great and wise teacher.Thanks for all your classes and tips. You certainly has the right balance between a funny and serious teacher and I can understand your classes with all clarity and objectivity.

Fabfab

    That’s awesome to read. Thanks for your kind feedback, Fabfab. I’m glad it seems like I’m doing something right.

    Alex

Alex, thank you very much. It was very helpful…

Larisa963

Hi Alex

very interesting lesson. I believe the words such as Tranquil and Premeditated, are Latin words. I do not think Shakespeare had been living in Roman times to invent those words. Anyway, thanks for your lessons, they are excellent.

Frank

    For sure! It’s why I said the words are credited to him, but that many of them existed before. Some people say he added 1,500 words to the English language, while others say he added over 2,000. Scholars don’t even agree with one another on this.

    Alex

Hey Alex! how long no see you but it is obviously that is not your foul because you always have a lot of passion doing this amazing job. To be honest, i did not know about all these adjetives, some of them sounds interesting. Definitely that all your lessons are not lackluster at all. By the way, i wonder if you know about some grammar lesson`s videos about Repeated and double comparatives. Thanks as usual, keep up a wonderful job! Greetings!

JGeorge

    Could you give me some examples of what you mean, JGeorge?

    Alex

      Sure, here one example from my book of each one. The birth-rate is getting lower and lower.(Repeated comparatives) The more education women get, the later they marry.(Double comparatives).

      JGeorge

Shakespear ! the name carries a literature for advance learner . Because of your class i motivated to read Shakespeare vocabulary and Romeo and Juliet play. Thanks Alex ! for words you have choose to teach are useful in day to day life ! i would like to know about daunted, overcome, over…..
thank you, once again.

rameshwar rao p

there are countless reasons to watch this video. playing computer games is worthless in contrast to (with) watching your video. i feel so tranquil after using the new vocabulary you taught me
totally appreciated teacher

yehiaelbadry

Thanks Alex!

Your lessons are never worthless and you explain very well the contents with examples and great acting.

“Worthless means without value, zero, ‘nada’…” Now with translation. hahaha :)

Some of the words in the vocabulary were new to me.

Fabio Cicerre

    I’m glad people caught me saying “nada.” Haha. I didn’t plan to say it, but it just came out while we were recording.

    Alex

      Nice pronunciation of the word, tough. Looking forward to watching more of your videos!

      Deybi Mejia

Very interesting!!!! thanks a lot

hasinaa

Le Hai Anh

Hi Alex! That’s a very nice lesson. But I think Jade, that Engvid teacher, won’t like to know you are teaching us that “jaded” has a negative meaning. Besides she isn’t jaded at all. I am just kidding! Thanks for the lesson.

Eduardo França

Thanku Alex but i didnt get tranquil :(

Great lesson. Flawless.Please,Alex,could you, by
any chance continue using Sir Shakespeare or any other
