Great Lesson, but I think that if you observe the way that natives speak and write you can learn it. Because no one who has english as your first language took a book to learn how to speak english, they just observe .

zevictormed

    Do whatever you know, use any method, everything is allowed! And if you discover something new, tell us :) And yes, I warmly recommend to watch the best Manga ever, and that is Dragon Ball series (DB, Z, GT). Trust me, they speak clear, fluently and correctly. You’ll learn a lot from it, it is better than any movie. . .

    Merlin

    I think you make a great point.

    Jon

      Master, i’m from Vietnam, are you still living in Vietnam now?
      your lessons are very excellent, and your teaching way is very effective, so i need to find a teacher like you. :D wish you in Vietnam now.

      Nguyen

    I always think that by doing we learn, because it’s really important to make mistakes.

    Jon

    I’ve just finished this Quiz

THIS LESSON WAS INTRESTING. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU WHAT DOES BUILD UP MEAN?

jeffer123

    use free online dictionaries

    anon

    “Build up” is a phrasal verb and means the same as bare word “build”! When you want to intensify the meaning, then you use phrasal verbs. . .

    Merlin

    It vos wery good lesson… Thenk you!!!

    Zuraby

Hi, nice lesson!!!

I have one question: Has the phrasal verb “end up” the same meaning as “end” in all these sentences??

giordanocwb

Hi jon, thanks for the lesson.
So, can you show me an example using “finishing” please?
Thank you in advance.

rokefeller65

    We’re finishing our homework. . .

    Merlin

abc

    Present Perfect

    anon

    Yes it is correct!

    Jon

It’s useful lesson

1maria

Thank you for the lesson. Usually I hear the Police Alarm when you teach. Are you near the police’s office :)

dalio

    No, but there does seem to be quite a few ambulances and police cars that go by. Good ears!

    Jon

Awsome.

marimfoungoulie

alen

maka

    You mean you would like a reading comprehension lesson?

    Jon

helllo jon

please can you help me in Q 4

why When does you finish class
isn’t correct answer cuz

(does ) goes with he she it and singular and class its singular

and why When do you finish class
is it correct answer

thank you jon i wish you the best

ikiller

    Ikiller, you must be kidding. Your question is “funny”! Find the lesson on Present Simple Tense, and look at the structure. First of all you have to learn this verb tense, and Present Continuous which is very similar. . .

    Merlin

    dear ikiller listen you are absolutely right that when we use HE,SHE,IT or SINGULAR.. we must uSE “S or Es” with first f0rm of verb..but listen dear when there is D0ES then keep in mind that THE extra S or ES is als0 attached with “D0” …i think you will get it,its very easy point to understand …

    xulfi syed

    You corresponds to “do”. You never say you does.

    Jon

    Yes it is..when do you finish class?

    Jon

I didn’t understand this freaking lesson but I got 4 out of 4. holycows, thanks Jon.

Efrain

Jon, can you show me an example using ‘finishing’? please :)Thank you

amyra

    I think it is used mostly as a noun( I mean word “finishing”)

    temirlan

Thanks a lot.

Marcia1000

    Marcia1000, no, I’m not teacher, I’m student like you, but by answering these questions I strive to improve my english as much as possible. Everything I know, I am gonna share with you, but I’m wondering where Alex is, he should do it instead of me. And yes, if you have anything to ask me about english, I’ll be glad to teach you. Besides, if you have facebook account, you can add me as a friend, if not, ask me here. . .

Noor-zahra

dear sir,
let me know that if finish comes with (ing) form of the word then why you used this lesson is finished, in this sentence we don’t have ing. when i shoud have the answer?
thanks

hasibullah

    I am not sure I understand your question.

    Jon

It’s very useful lesson for me. Thanks a lot!

Solnishko

Thank you Jon!
what about done.. when can I use this word ?
thank you again

Rana

    Done can express the same as finished. So, you could say, I have done or finished the dishes.

    Jon

Thanks a lot for this lesson. Now, I know when to use end and finish.

mak_cwb

    I’m glad you found the lesson useful!

    Jon

      Hi Jon,
      I think you and your colleagues are doing a great job on this site. I have one little question for you regarding the answer that you gave to a user a day or two ago.
      When you are saying: “I’m glad you found the lesson useful!”
      shouldn’t it be more like: “I’m glad you have found the lesson useful!” ?

      Thanks, and best regards. :-)

      Igor

khamphanh

Andrew

sweettrangflower2904

    Jon

Hi Sir,

thank you so much. i personally used to use these words interchangebly,but now and after watching this video im no longer used them as i was. please , if you would not mind , i want to know where we can use the modals ‘can’ and could and may and might , because i always use them as interchangeable words.

milina

hi jon,
this lesson was very good. i cleared confusion that when which word should be spoken.thanks
jon can you tell me about the use of word “back” in english for instance give back, at the back , back off etc. these many other expression are quiet confusing

najma

Very good lesson, Jon.

patrickuk

thank you sear , It is an incredible lesson

I have a hint :my friend If you want to remember the last point in the lesson about the (ing) form , remember that ( finish ) & (ing) both contain the letter (i) , so wont be confused …

I hope that my hiny is useful . godbye

Bu Na7YaN

it’s good lesson, sir Jon. you make my mind works.

totong

Dear teacher, useful lesson… but I think it’s still missing something to me… I made the 3 and 4 questions wrong:
3: I’ve chosen “I’ll never finish this book” (the correct onee is end)
4: I’ve chosen “When do you end class?” (the correct answer is finish)
During the lesson you are talking about usage of finish to complete something that I’m doing (Q3).
And what’s the meaning of “finish class”?

anita

Wonderful lesson!

Nawal

I was afraid of that you will manacled by police :)

3-How much will he get to …….. this job?
4- At the end of a movie , they write (The End) what’s the important change here?

Hi, I’m sorry but…
Is it possible that you wanted to say:
– Only ‘finish’ can be followed by another verb using -ing form. ???

The way you wrote it… I mean, it looks to me like saying ‘finishing’…

Thank U
