      Useful expressions to talk about sports Alex. However, this time we couldn´t get rid of the verb+preposition combinations either.

      The use of the correct preposition, however, help us to convey our ideas properly.

      Thanks for this superb video-lesson Alex.

      Ciao

“Josh and Peter are siblings, another siblings are JJ and loner”.

“Josh and Peter are siblings, other siblings are JJ and loner”.

Profile photo of otoniells otoniells

    “Josh and Peter are siblings; another pair of siblings are JJ and Loner.”

    I’m not sure if this is your intention, though.

FC Barcelona is more than a club for many reasons. Not because they’ve won a treble twice (three trophies in a single season)or because they’ve been the only team in Europe which has won six trophies in a year. But because they represent freedom of speech, especially under the Franco dictatorship, but also Independence of Catalonia and any other country in the world, just like Canada did on July 1st, 1867.

Unfortunately, I could not become a pro at speaking about the sports, because I am not a fan with those kinds of sports such as soccer, hockey, baseball. But I have learned the important vocabulary related to sports.
However, the quiz was beaten totally by Chloe. And all in all, Chloe blew the quiz out. Wow!…Go Gunners.
Thank you for this fun and useful lesson, teacher Alex. :)

Hi Alex, I know this is completely out of topic but I was just wondering, about the use of “a few / few “, I saw a video on here that if you say, “I have FEW pens”, it means that you don’t have enough pens whereas “I have A FEW PENS” means you have enough. So my question is, does this rule apply to when, how do i explain this.. say, someone asks you “have you been to London before?”, Is it grammatically correct to answer with “yes a few times”?

Profile photo of magsprescott magsprescott

    Yes, that is correct. :)

I like this lesson because I often watch Major League Baseball. It’s very helpful for me. Though the Jays made 11-streak win, and temporarily were on the top of the standing, they are now 2nd place due to beaten by theYanks. Today, Tanaka has done a complete game against the Jays. AL east division is as hot as this summer! Thank you, Alex!

Hi Alex,
What a fantastic lesson! You have taught me this everyday English that I can use to communicate with friends in daily life. It is more than the dull English learned in school for taking the exam.
Fully support you as a fan living far far away on another side of the globe.

Hi Alex, wouldn´t be “Chelsea WAS beaten” instead Chelsea were beaten? I assume tha Chelsea as a group should be considered in the third singular person. Thanks!

Profile photo of alvaro03 alvaro03

    Good catch! “Chelsea were beaten” is acceptable in British English, which uses third-person plural with groups. The UK is the heart of English-speaking football culture, and so I think this is why Alex uses a bit of British English here.

Profile photo of Xeyber Xeyber

Alex, I have a doubt.
Why not say “Chelsea was beaten by Arsenal”?

Profile photo of William Flores William Flores

    This is also possible. However, “was” comes after “it”, and I would never say “It was beaten by Arsenal” to refer to soccer. I will always say “They were beaten by Arsenal,” which is why I say “Chelsea were beaten by Arsenal” in the video.

    …and now I just like typing Chelsea were beaten by Arsenal. Haha.

i confuse between blowout and blow out

Profile photo of ajiam777 ajiam777

    “Blowout” is a noun.
    -The game was a blowout.
    -I think it’s going to be a blowout

    “Blow (someone) out” is a phrasal verb.
    -Arsenal blew out Aston Villa.
    -Barcelona blew them out!

    I hope this helps a little bit.

Hello Alex! Quite interesting lesson. Brazil lost against Germany in the last World Cup. The score was 7-1. It was a blowout. And a shame too. Everything happened at home… By the way, can I use the verb “to support” in other situations? For instance: “I am supporting my brother in his new job” (I mean I hope he gets on in his new job). Thank you in advance.
