NICE CLASS. I have a question about WILL and GOING TO (gonna). I learned when i was young that WILL we used for something that we’re not sure to do in the future and GOING TO is for something that we going to do for sure in the future. Is that right?

REY

    Rey, there is a Rebecca’s lesson here about WILL and GOING TO (named as “Using the Future Tense in Conversation”). I liked it.

    James, thank you for useful lesson.

    Nadine

    Hi Rey,

    As I know, Will and Going To both are used to say about future. “Will” – unplanned, you make the decision in the time when conversation happens. “Going to” – planned. I am not sure your statement is right. Hope it help!

Thank you so much for you lessons James, you keep on bringing up the good stuff, I wanted to ask you about a couple of things:
what does “My head is all over the wall”, when A for instance is talking to B and B says it , does it mean he is not following? does it have a specific reason?,
also, “To see right through someone” I think it’s a bad thing as if he doesn’t exist I think. would you explain it to me, and last thing is most important
I rather (go – to go – going)
I’d rather (go – to go – going)
I prefer (go – to go – going)
I’d prefer (go – to go – going)
I like (go – to go – going)
I’d like (go – to go – going)
I suggest (go – to go – going)
I’d suggest (go – to go – going)
etc…
such verbs ^^

    I agree with anwwf ! I’ve myself never understood the differences between “I’d prefer” and “I’d rather” and the differences of meaning between “I prefer to eat” or “I prefer eating”.
    Thanks for your answers!

In the case of permission, Which is the difference between can and could?

For example: Can you lend me some money? and Could you lend me some money?

Hi,James.
I have a question about the sentense ” I could have helped.” Is it a future sentense? Is the below sentense is correct?

A : “I will wash my car tomorrow.”
B : “Okay,I could have helped.” (= I can help you to wash the car tomorrow.)

Waitting your answer! Thanks James. :)

It’s clear that modal verbs modify the meaning of the sentence, and they add more precision about our expressions like “CAN” with permission, ability and possibility, besides these aspects are offered in different situations and everybody can understand what they are listening. Everyone have to remember the modal verbs and their meanings, it’s not easy if you don’t practise all time. Thanks a lot, teacher James from Engvid, a good performance.
