Thanks for your little class, Jon. I appreciate your help, because I am a new English student. I have started to study English only three months ago.
Could you say one example with “above”?
Jon, I am sorry for my English.
Kind regards!

jmiguel

    I think this is a good example for above: As I have written above, I got my degree in Economics in 2008.

    My name is Aysel ,ı am learning english in this webside ,it is very useful for us,you can write me ,ı am from Turkey ,regards

    Hello sir

Hii James,
I am actually sorry not to keep your suggestion for writing out a short dialogue.To be honest,I truly wrote one but my fingers pressed the refresh button mistakenly and the total content got vanished from my reach.I promise you to rewrite later as an interesting story is revolving around my brain and I am looking forward to penning down that soon.However, Here I have written five sentences using “over” according to my understanding.
1.The cabie was running the taxi over 120 kilometer when he lost his control and hit a nearby eatery eventually.
2.The well-known wicket keeper cum batsman from Australia,named Gilchrist hit three consecutive sixes over the mid -off.(i.e. Over the fielders head as the ball was not rechable to them-it was out of their reach).
3.The famous Howrah-bridge is over the holy river the Ganges.
4.Imagine,I was standing in front of a drain and I wanted to go to the opposite site.On that context,I could have easily said that I jumped over the drain to get to the opposite end.
5.Last year,Over 10000 devotees visited the Golden temple in Amritshawar in India.
I urge you to correct my sentences if some are found incorrect to help me improve my English..looking forward to having reply soon..

Thank u sir

Abdul Qayum

Sir..Thankyou so Much for this wonderful lesson..I am your old student..Watched yourr video After a Long time..it is really helpful..Sir i wanna ask that Oftenly above and over seem to be very similar but not always:
I am really wondering is there any difference for the usage of over and above? Is there any situation that one can not be used in the place of the other?

If I make it more comprehensible, can I use; I like watching the planes fly over me or above me. Which one is correct grammatically?
I am waiting for your reply sir

akibelle

useful lesson !

raindrops

Hi:) Thanks for the video. One question, Does “over” works as a verb too? For example, in the sentence: I’m over you, what’s the meaning of over? (I hear it in a tv show and for the context I guess it’s something like she forgot him, but I’m not sure)

Camila

dear jon:

thank you for all your help. I am learning more everyday.

Marc

that all of the people loved to learn English but 18 and over that they missed our chance , am I right?

sherislane

I Thank you for the Lesson, Sir.
I have a question, would you please explain which one is the correct sentence,
“The class is over” or “The class is finish”?

NengNaura

    “The class is over” is correct, but “the class is finish” is almost right — you could also say “class is finished”.

    engVid Moderator

      Thanks for your reply. EngVid!
