imranmangi

hi, what is a mistake in the sentence : She likes to wear makeups. which is in the quiz?

re5pect21

    We use “like + doing something” instead of “like + to do something”

    baodv

      i don’t think so. i think that because “makeup” is non-count noun, so we mustn’t add “s” for it.

I was happy to find you lesson on this topic today. Although I think my English grammar is rather good I had never heard these rules before and so I have never been confident in speaking or writing of such kind of sentences. Could you perhaps explain me What is the difference between The and A/An?

Thank you once more.

I made a mistake in last question, where I have chosen “She likes to wear makeups”. Word “makeups” is plural so we can’t use “a” article for it. So could anybody tell me what is wrong with it? Thanks.

Toli

Actually I see, Looks like it is a mistake itself. It’s a non countable noun makeup.

Toli

Thank you Alex

Pradeep

Dear Alex, I’m still confused with some words. I live in Singapore and we use short forms for long words. I have just read an article and it states this “An SCDF(Singapore Civil Defense Force) spokesperson said that the casualty was pronounced dead at midnight, minutes just after the incident.”

Why do we use an when it starts with letter “S”?

There is another article and it states this “An HDB(House Development Board) flat owner were mad with the constructors as they made a lot of noise in the morning almost everyday and that disturbed his sleep.”

Why do we use an when it starts with “H”?

And many of my teachers said this “Whoever gets an F9 for this test will need to go to remedial lessons.”

Why do we use an when it starts with “F”?

I hope you can correct me.

muhammad Rafiqi

    hey muhamed , the reason why we used ” AN ” because we have stands of words such as ” SCDF , HDB , GPS , and GPR so we have to use AN . it’s a basic rule .

    hope i was able to help u .

    I’m SOro from Egypt .

    SOro Angel-musiCaddiCT

    Hi Muhammad,

    When an article “AN” is used for Vowel Sound of the noun you pronounced. Not only the first letter of the word.

    Ex: SCDF- you sound it “es..”

    Dinesh

really awesome . I’m a new fan of EngVid and i loved it so much :) keep going

hi!im tehreem.i loved ur way of teaching English and i just want to ask u about the related video of using articals thatz why we say “a student”,s sound is not in vowels.so can u plz explain this also about the noun too.thankxx and God bless you.

tehreem

Thanks :)

truonglekhanh

hi, what is a mistake in the sentence : She likes to wear makeups. which is in the quiz?
plz reply alex or anybody

venki

    it will be like
    she likes to wear makeup. because makeup itself is a plural form.

    raazaa

    she likes to wear makeup is the correct way to say this. makeup -means more then one. there is no such word as makeups.

    Ana

I am a big fan thanks a lot for all your hard work, this is an outstanding project cheers from mexico

siham ambition

thanks.alex

mimi kumari

Alex can you comment on the following sentence. Is the use of A is right here?

This is to inform you that we are conducting a interview for the post of Principal for our school at Ville Parley Hill,Newton.

jovial

    Hi Jovial,

    In this case you should use “an” because the word “interview” begins with a vowel sound.

    Alex

      Hi Alex thanks for great efforts I want to know about ‘the’ article

      spante

Thanks a lot for taking time and reading the post. I am pleased that you corrected me.

jovial

hi;
I’m really glad when I find this website because it’s benifit for any body want infomation on Grammar.
thanks guyes.

shahen

thanks alex for help learn english me

serapzk

Hi Alex,could you explain it to me why article “the” had been used in the sentence?…. ” We should be polite to the old.” Thanks.

joneru

    Hi joneru,

    Seniors are a specific group of people, so you must use “the old” in the context of your sentence.

    Alex

Hi Alex,how are you?Hope that you will always find.I’m just curious about the article “An” in this sentence….”An needle is tool used for sewing clothes.” Is it correct article that had been used in the sentence?

joneru

    You need an article in this sentence, but it should be “a needle,” because “needle” begins with a consonant sound. Similar to “a stop sign,” “a car,” “a bottle,” etc.

    Alex

      what is the difference between consonant and vowels?

      sibghatullah

        Assalamu Alaikum.

        In English we have 26 letters i.e “A to Z”

        In these 26 letters you may minus 5 letters i.e “a,e,i,o and u” these 5 letters are represents “articles” and remaining 21 letters are consonants.

        Hope this allusion/note helps you.

        Please revert back if you any doubts on this explanation.

        Warm Regards,
        Mohammed Shahith (India)

        khrmsr

          Hi,

          In previous comment I have mentioned the word/term as article instead of “Vowels”. So please use/replace the word “vowels” on my previous comment wherever applied the word as “Articles”

          My sincere apologies to you and entire readers.

          Please get back to me if you have doubt on the above explanation!!!

          Warm regards,
          Mohammed Shahith (India)

Than you so much for this lesson, very useful as usual

Ibty

Sir Alex is a superb sir.

Aditya

Thank you engvid! You guys are awesome. God bless you always!

Joanne

i enjoy watcing this.

ahmed

i have a new glasses is it correct how it will be the answer

genaro

    Hi genaro,

    “Glasses” is a actually a plural noun, so you do not need an article. You only have to say, “I have new glasses.” The same rule applies for words like “pants,” “shorts,” “underwear,” “socks,” “shoes,” and “clothes.”

    Alex

Thanks! This is really helping me!!! Since I’m an autodidact in English Language (Is it correct?), I never learn English from the basics, it’s just happen like that, I can speak and understand English all of a sudden, but I still have a few problems about spelling and grammars, especially Sentences Structure. Again, THANKS!!!

Danielle

Thanks alex!

Roshan

Thanks for a good class. My family has a dog, if I am going to say that dogs, which article will use? Please kindly reply me.

Tuya

    You would say, “My family has a dog.”

    Alex

Hi Alex! I want to ask about the vowel and consonant,that what is the vowel and consonant.I mean to say that how we could define it.thanks

simon

    Hi Simon,

    The English vowels are A, E, I, O, U, and sometimes Y. Basically, any time your mouth makes those open sounds like “StAy,” “StOp,” “Airplane,” you are using a vowel sound. The other letters, like B, C, D, F, G, M, P, Q, and others are called consonants.

    Alex

      I apologize to reply here. I cant post to your website coz the system might have problem. Alex, will you please explain the me the question number #5, Im confused to the sentence 1 and 2. Thanks!… The 1. To wear makeups (I choose this as my answer because the makeups is a plural noun/common noun so it shouldnt follow by the article “a” but its incorrect) 2. an orange car (I believe this is also a correct one because the “orange” is a vowel and must have article “an”.. please enlighten me. Thank you so much! You help a lot.

      ez2dancer

        Iam looking forward to your reply alex. Thanks!

    anon

Hello, I am just wondering that why “an orange car ” is correct in the last sentence of the quiz. I understand that if the noun starts with consonant, it has “a”. So in my opinion, a orange car is correct even it sounds wrong.

Mandy

Very good lesson.
thanks.

sunilshetty

Thanks a lot, Alex. I have a question about the use of have and the noun after it. I read a sentence from a dictionary :
“Dogs have a very keen sense of smell.”
Why does it use a singular noun after a plural subject? Can I rewrite this sentence like this :
Dogs have very keen senses of smell.
Looking for your reply. Thanks

joycekwan2608

    sense is singular
    senses is plural

    anon

    your dictionary wrong i gues. I can found in goolge
    “Dogs have very keen senses of smell.”
    only

    anon

    AA I understand now.
    senses of smell. it is like feelings about something I guess. more common “sense of smell”

    anon

Kindly, Give some lesson on prepositions like, Infact,Despite,although and sentences like “as a matter of fact and many more. Thanks

    We say “my family has” because, while there’s several people in a family, the subject of the sentence is one family.

    (However, this doesn’t always apply in British English.)

Hi, Alex! Thanks for the lesson! =) In case of such words as hat or hexagon, do we need to use a or an? I heard that both are possible. ‘A’ would sound more common to me as a non-native speaker.
I would appreciate your reply.

elkrespo

I’m sorry not is “see”, it’s “saw”… XD

elkrespo

Hi everybody, I want to know if it´s correct to say for example: I am student, or you are father of 2 kids. If we can omit the article a or an or the. I´m looking forward to hear about you.

bienymal

    Hi Bienymal. No, It’s not grammatically correct to say, “I am student.” Nor, “You are farther of two kids.” It makes sense to say, “I am a student.” And it makes sense to say, “You are a father of two.” If the first word after the article begins with a vowel you have to use ‘an’. Example, “I would like to have an apple.” -I hope this helps.

    houdah

You are my best English teacher

sweety737

Thank you so much. I was confused, but now I understand it well:)

nanboonrat

Thanks Mr Alex. The only thing I’m slightly baffled about is whether or not ‘the’ is an article and if so, does it make sense to say, “I like to drink the water.” or “I like to drink the water that she gave me.”

houdah

thanks Alex. how can i say a university or an university?

ganbashir15

Let me see if i got this right. You mean I can use
A with any word that starts with bcdfghjklmnpqrstvwxyz and
An with a word that starts with + aeiou

Thanks Alex! I have a question. Number 5 ” She likes to wear makeups”
What is wrong?

Lim byung hee

Thank you so much ^_^

noopui

Alex, will you please explain the question number #5, I m confused to the sentence 1 and 2. Thanks!… The 1. To wear makeups (I’ve chosen this as my answer because the makeups is a plural noun/common noun so it shouldnt follow by the article “a” but why is it incorrect?) #2. an orange car (I believe this is also a correct one because the “orange” is a vowel and must follow by the article “an”.. please enlighten me. Thank you so much! You help a lot.

Somebody has changed the voice of this video , and topic of the newly introduced voice contains a great insult to the former king of Jordan.

Mahmoud Amr

    Sorry…explain please?

    engVid Moderator

I hope you control your videos well

Mahmoud Amr

When I open this video from this site, I don’t hear the voice of the teacher. instead I hear the voice of somebody else speaking Arabic imitating King Hussein of Jordan, but it seems if you open the video on youtube you hear the original voice of the teacher. This is not the only video , several video’s of Valen have the same problem.

Mahmoud Amr

so I really ,enjoy of this lesson

PAVEL199

Hi Alex,

Question 2 “We saw many tree on our trip”
and
Question 3 “I have a new glasses”

Why false

sahindanisan

    You must say “many trees” not tree.
    and
    A glasses is “a pair of glasses”, they always have two pieces of glass, so this is a plural noun.

superb lesson…

THANGAMANI

in this sentence “an apple is red” why i think is not correct?! i can’t translate it .. why we didn’t just say “an apple red” or “the apple is red” so i can translate it into arabic for example
i hope someone reply.. my love for this website

3bdallah

    First, every language is different, so do not translate. Second, if you use the apple is red, you are talking about a specific apple. Finally, Always in the sentence, you need to have a subject and a verb. An apple is the subject and is (verb). An apple is red.

Can i ask you something Alex?
Does that means uncountable nouns have not a plural form? like water is just water? not water”S”? if yes then why electricity has a word that the end with a -ES? (electricities)

thank you for the lesson!
