Thank you for the lesson, Jade!
How about”Whom am I speaking to?” Is it correct?

engread

    no You have to put “to” at the begining

    Briklend Handersson

      ”Whom am I speaking to?” is correct. “To whom am I speaking?”is more formal.

      byte

        No when You use whom you must put to at the begining. Formal=correct

        Briklend Handersson

          An open mind instead of looking for what is wrong in a new information, actively looks for what is right:))

          You must open your mind and colse your bocca. Handersson MD, Ph.D

          Briklend Handersson

          Gent.le Prof.
          Era solo un gioco. Io ho studiato inglese ad Oxford e mi hanno insegnato che quello che Lei ritiene corretto è corretto ma suona ugly un po’ come quando usano Who ( scorretto) e per tale motivo quasi mai usato. Ma preferibile usare il To davanti o in modo confidenziale Who. Lavorando negli USA l’ipotesi di whom e to alla fine non vincente neanche menzionata. Mi complimento con il Suo inglese e grazie per le correzione. Con deferente ossequio Briklend Handersson

          Briklend Handersson

          Ad una persona che saluta con “deferente ossequio”, perdono tutto. Ringrazio inoltre per la spiegazione e mi complimento per il Suo inglese:)

      It’d be interesting to make a video-lesson on transitive-intransitive verbs to contrast one with the other. This may help us to understand a bit more how these verbs work.

      Prepositions, to tell the truth, always give me a splitting headache.

      Many thanks for this lesson Jade.

      Regino

        Yes, it’s impossible to catch the rule! Although I had 9/10. Thaks Jade!

        BetoArg

    Yep. It’s correct but it’s not common like who

Thank you Jade for your good explanation.I love English language to speak fluently,but it is very hard to speak very well, even though it needs more time.thank you so long.

Enkutatash

This is the first time I see one of your many videos, and of course your lesson was very useful.
I really don’t know But I just felt a very little stress in your voice or using too much “Um, Err, ah”.
But thanks for the lesson anyway, you were great.

    she speaks to naturally, it’s more like a conversation with us, she connected with a crown

Thanks, Jade. Very useful lesson.
What about “say”? Is it transitive or not?

APicon

    to say is transitive: Dad says to come and eat dinner right now. ( Papá dice que vengas a cenar ahora mismo.)
    She hardly answer questions.
    Do you know what a dictionary is ? Why don’t you look it up ?

    aroibas

      Si vas a responder con ironía, ahorrate la molestia. En todo caso, no te preguntaba a vos. Disculpá por hacerte perder tu valiosísimo tiempo.

      APicon

        Hola :)

        Tampoco me gusta contribuyentes irónicos. Lo mejor es ignorarlos.

        The verb “SAY” can be both transitive and intransitive. Some dictionaries such as macmillandictionary.com indicate this piece of information by default, whereas some don’t.

        After “SAY” we do NOT normally use a direct object (that is, to whom we are speaking), as “SAY” is NORMALLY used to inform, “open the mouth and speak so that the other person can hear us”, without mentioning who the person is/was talking to:
        CORRECT: He said (that) it was fine.

        When we have an object, we must use “to”:
        CORRECT: He said to me that I was too young for the job.
        INcorrect: He said me…
        CORRECT: He told me I was too young for the job,
        CORRECT: Say hello ( <- this word is an object here) to Ronnie for me!
        INcorrect: Say Ronnie hello…

        Make sure you also check out here at engvid.com:
        Alex's "SAY & TELL – Reported Speech"
        James's "Speaking English – Say, Tell, Hear, Listen – How to use them correctly"

        All the best and have fun learning English!
        David

        David

          Say hello to Jade as well ! :)

          David

          As far as I can see APicon, David is an expert on the English language,apart from writing Spanish well.

          Hi David, I’ve read some of your comments on EngVid and as usuall YOU always hit the nail on the head.

          Thanks a lot for sharing all this with us.

          Have an enjoyable weekend.

          Regino

          Hello Regino,

          Thank you for your kind words. I am delighted to hear it. I am more than happy to help students on these pages :)

          As for my Spanish, I know it should be “no me gustan” :). The problem is that there is no “edit reply” option on these forums – once you post a contribution, you will be unable to edit it :(

          D.

          David

          Hi David. Thanks a lot! Very clear and kind answer. I appreciate that. :)

          APicon

thank you Jade for this great lesson, I have couple questions to you. How do we use the verb send, do we say ” I will send to him…” or ” I will send him …” the same thing to the verb [want].

tarikjnt

What a lesson!!! really cool, I loved it and you’re a great teacher Jade. So, I wonder if you can give me more intransitives verbs, you know, to learn so much…thank you!

daniy

Even i would like to know about “SAY”????
Its fantastic lesson Jade.I used to get confused with this.Its bit tricky for me i think i need to do more practice of it.Thank you for this lesson.

Thank you, Jade.What about ” To speak with”,” To talk with” ? Is there any difference with To speak to and to talk to? Thanks.

Elen Sheff

Jade, regarding “transitive” and “intransitive” I think you messed things up.

tomek11

Thanks for your great lessons.
By the way, I have a question about today’s lesson. Ithink a verb which needs ‘to’ after it is called ‘intransitive verb’, and a verb which doesn’t need ‘to’ after it is called ‘transitive verb.’ What do you think of it, Jade?

yoshidajyuku

I have got 7 of 10, it is a really good lesson, I enjoyed a lot. I want to humbly ask you to please keep preparing of such important lessons. Hope to see you more with your helpful and productive lessons.

“I have to email to work.”
Incorrect? Why?

Radoslav

    because of the verb to Mail, does not want TO ( like: phone, call, ask, answer ecc). h

    Briklend Handersson

      because * the verb to mail does not want To

10/10. Thank you Jade.

ann ann

I don’t understand the reason for (replay to me ) and not ( replay me )
It seems right for me to say replay like send me anyway that is the only mistake I made or ( I did ) thanks a lot

preemy

it is a little bit irriitating: you write on a board the words with to and at the same time you are saying not to use those “to”. In the second example. And at the end I couldn’t remember what is wrong or right, because I saw (in my mind) written words on board with “to”, where “to” is not to be used. sorry my english((

KasyA

    just watch it again…hope you understand it better
