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?


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

Danny weld

Hi Alex! Thanks for this video, now I get new vocabulary to use.


    That was the idea! I’m glad you found it useful.




Hi Alex. in one word it was “wonderful”


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.


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.

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


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!


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.


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


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.


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

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


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


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


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


Thanks Alex for your video.


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.

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.


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


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


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.


    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.


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!


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


      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).


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


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.


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

      Deybi Mejia

Very interesting!!!! thanks a lot


Very good lesson.

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 :(
