    Alex

      Hi Alex,

      Thanks for your lesson. I have question.

      what does the sentence really mean
      ” we cannot afford to miss it.”

      please help me on this. I’ve googled it, but couldn’t find a satisfied answer.

      wakeelahmedchanna23

      this lesson is so awesome I get the idea

      yazeedalhajlah

      Abdelrahman

your speech is very easy and understanding ,that’s why I love your lessons, Thanks a lot Alex

adam

thanks Alex, I study English at College and when we learnt the superlatives our teacher didn’t know the difference between both, also she said that “further” isn’t superlative of “far”, thank you a lot for your lesson.

Gerardo

    Your teacher was correct. The superlative is “farthest” or “furthest.” :) “Further” and “Farther” are comparatives.

    Alex

I think I could go a lot further than Messi in his career.

cristianoronaldo

    If you’re really Cristiano Ronaldo, you probably could! :P

mimo

Thanks a lot , you help me to understand english easily. I Would like to know how to difference verbs in past . I have problems with the sounds ,ending ed :t,d,id sounds

susana

I’ll leave here my little secret. It’s really hard to know when it’s further- figurative distance whether farther- physical distance.
*
I think like this:: farther is almost like the word FATHER. You don’t want any “physical contact with your father. You want physical distance kkkkkkkk Brazilian laugh), so if you assimilate farther with father you’ll remember that it means physical distance, then it’s easy to figure that further is the one that means figurative distance.
*
It may seem stupid, but it was how I got 10 out of 10

lisa28

    If you know meaning of “far”, you shouldn’t have problems with “far+ther” and “further”.

    morfik

      Oh! Really good one, Morfik.
      Way less complicated than mine.
      Tkx

      lisa28

    Lisa,I’ll never forget after this.It’s stupdy,but at the same time It’was intelligent

    Carlos

    I agree with Morfik and it seems more reasonable…. but it was interesting the relation that you did with father.

    gabchris

    Great idea Lisa.
    I use the same way to memorize difficult sentences and words.

    anselmo

    you should just remember. it’s easier way

    google4747

    hhhhh you’r right

    Aboufares

Thanks Alex.
what is the difference between talk and walk and between special and private?

Emad Yousef

    To talk is to speak.
    To walk is to move with your legs.

    I’ll let you use a translator for the other words. :)

    Alex

thanks Alex!

Aktoty

I hope you’ll teach us further!))) am I right? yeah I know I’m right!

chatchaphorn

Hi Alex
If I learn many things like that I certainly will go further with my English
See you next time

Neusa

Dear Alex!!! Thank u so much for the lesson. The question i would like to ask u about meaning and proper using the phrases like “here we go” or “there we go” (and sometimes is “here you go”). I think they are very important and useful. I’ll be really appreciated if you have an opportunity to reply

Elena

    Use “here we go” before you start doing something.

    Use “there we go” after you finish something.

    Good luck!

    Alex

      Thanks for clarifying that for me too Alex!
      Cheers

      John

Thank you so much, I didn’t know what the difference was!!

I got 100%. But, could you explain the difference between make, have and get ? At school, my teacher said only“this three verbs means pressure, that’s to say someone is restrained to do something.
For examples: – This teacher made us laugh. We were made to wait for hours.
-The management had us sign ten documents.
-If only she could get Mike to dance!

tiger75

Hello, can you tell me which sentence is correct?
They hadn’t got any further with the work. OR
They hadn’t got any farther with the work.

Thanks you

tiger75

I understand how these two words are used.
I could guess what a figurative distance means, but I’d appreciate it if you could put ‘figurative’ in another word. Thanks!

sunshine425

I’ve got 100%. you are exciting teacher, Alex.

BTW, I got 10 out of 10 right.

nataliawalker

Thanks Alex. short but productive…

wiltoncleiton

Hi Alex, very nice explanation. But I’m still in doubt. Does that also work for British English? Because I took a look in Oxford Dictionary, and they present further as a synonym of farther for physical distances. Hope you can help me. Thanks.

babicalderon

THAT’S A PRETTY GOOD WAY TO IDENTIFY ONE FROM THE ANOTHER..

Thank YOu teacher (But i’ve just 90 :/ ) it’s my second Lesson i ve (190/200) thank you very much <3

Aymen Dz

Thanks for this lesson, you’re really a good teacher. I did one mistake in the quiz because I don’t overpower (?) the verb : get. In other words, I don’t really understand : to get there.
I thought it was about an item or something like that.
Besides that, I have a question about this passage (Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad, beginning chapter 1) : “The air was dark above Gravesend, and farther back still seemed condensed into a mournful gloom, brooding motionless over the biggest, and the greatest, town on earth.”
My question : “…farther back still…” Why the word : back ? is it really necessary, or it’s just for the “sound” ?
A thousand thanks !

Nevadoum
