Thursday, November 5th 2009

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

Thursday, November 5th 2009

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

    Tuesday, December 7th 2010

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

Sunday, January 24th 2010

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.

Tuesday, March 9th 2010

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

Tuesday, March 9th 2010

thank Alex!

    Normally we won’t be use the term “the” for an individual (person’s name) but it is applicable only for group of persons.

    Hope this might help you!

Thank you Alex

Wednesday, June 9th 2010

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.

Wednesday, June 9th 2010

    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 .

    Friday, June 11th 2010

    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..”

    Saturday, October 29th 2016

Monday, November 8th 2010

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.

Monday, November 15th 2010

Thanks :)

Tuesday, November 16th 2010

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

Friday, November 26th 2010

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

    Wednesday, December 22nd 2010

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

    Sunday, December 18th 2011

Saturday, January 8th 2011


Saturday, January 15th 2011

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.

Thursday, January 20th 2011

    Hi Jovial,

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

    Sunday, January 23rd 2011

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

      Saturday, January 7th 2012

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

Monday, January 24th 2011

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

Saturday, February 5th 2011

thanks alex for help learn english me

Sunday, February 13th 2011

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.

Friday, March 4th 2011

    Hi joneru,

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

    Sunday, April 3rd 2011

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?

Sunday, March 6th 2011

    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.

    Sunday, April 3rd 2011

      what is the difference between consonant and vowels?

      Friday, April 8th 2011

        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)

        Wednesday, January 4th 2012


          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)

          Wednesday, January 4th 2012

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

Monday, March 28th 2011

i enjoy watcing this.

Tuesday, March 29th 2011

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

Thursday, March 31st 2011

    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.”

    Sunday, April 3rd 2011

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!!!

Tuesday, April 5th 2011

Thanks alex!

Sunday, April 10th 2011

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.

Sunday, April 17th 2011

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

    Thursday, November 22nd 2012

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

Sunday, April 17th 2011

    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.

    Sunday, April 17th 2011

      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.

      Monday, November 11th 2013

        Iam looking forward to your reply alex. Thanks!

        Tuesday, November 12th 2013

Thanks for the amazing lessons btw :D

Wednesday, June 15th 2011

    The apple is red in my mind.

    Saturday, January 21st 2012

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.

Wednesday, June 15th 2011

Very good lesson.

thanx a lot engvid ..i love it ..

Saturday, September 24th 2011

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

Thursday, October 6th 2011

    sense is singular
    senses is plural

    Saturday, January 21st 2012

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

    Saturday, January 21st 2012

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

    Saturday, January 21st 2012

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

Tuesday, January 17th 2012

why the following statement is wrong
“She likes to wear makeups.”

Sunday, January 29th 2012

    Makeup is a non-count noun, so we don’t add the ‘s’.

my family has a dog…..

I can’t understand it…

It should be..MY FAMILY HAVE A DOG…



Monday, May 7th 2012

    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.)

Sunday, December 23rd 2012

Tuesday, January 8th 2013

Hello Alex. Thanks for helping. I really appreciate it. I wish you good health and happiness. You are an excellent teacher.
Take care.

Wednesday, January 23rd 2013

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.

Tuesday, January 29th 2013

dear Mr Alex
many thanks for this excellent explaination

Tuesday, January 29th 2013

please Mr

Friday, March 8th 2013

today I only see you more easy lesson
but was useful

Friday, March 15th 2013

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

Friday, March 15th 2013

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.

Wednesday, March 20th 2013

    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.

    Monday, April 8th 2013

You are my best English teacher

Tuesday, March 26th 2013

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

Sunday, April 7th 2013

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.”

Monday, April 8th 2013

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

Tuesday, April 23rd 2013

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

Thursday, June 20th 2013

What is wrong?

Wednesday, September 4th 2013

Thank you so much ^_^

Wednesday, September 25th 2013

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.

Could you please answer this? Thank you

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.

Sunday, July 19th 2015

    Sorry…explain please?

    Sunday, July 19th 2015

I hope you control your videos well

Sunday, July 19th 2015

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.

Tuesday, May 31st 2016

Hi Alex,

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

Why false

Thursday, June 30th 2016

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

    Thursday, November 17th 2016

thank you for the lesson!
