    Hello there. I have read in a grammar book I purchased that subjunctive mood should be used in condition of uncertainty. Example. If she have the money, she will make it in the city.
    I used to use has for the third person. I would like to clarify this, because there are some English novels which use has instead of have. :)

    Raff

Why I must use “I have seen Star Wars 188 times so far!” and I can’t use “I saw Star Wars 188 times so far!”

What is the difference here?

Clebson

    As I know, It’s possible to say in American English. But it’s better to use Present Perfect, because you’ve seen Star Wars 188 times BEFORE the moment of speech.

    Profile photo of ofuvy ofuvy

    Because SO FAR shows you probably will see this movie more times. SAW indicates that you dont want to see it anynmore

    Claudio Santos

    cause if you notice ‘so far’ its not an acction that you have finished, so you can continue watching the movie more than 188 times if you want, but if you say I saw that start wards 188 times. its a fact you saw it, you can continue but you don’t let the other person know that. I don’t know if you understand it’s hard to explain it :( but just because it has ‘so far’ you know its ‘I’ve seen’. hope this help D:

    Profile photo of nathaliect nathaliect

    Because ‘I’ve seen’ is the present perfect simple form (not past simple) and as you can see, this action is not finished in the past.. you are still alive and you are able to watch Star Wars more times… Thus, you have to use ‘have seen’ because the action is still happening in a certain way..

    Heitor

    these explanations are kind of difficult. Just memorize: when something has happened in the past and you want to say that this is ALREADY happened (you have this EXPERIENCE) until now – than use this PP form.
    So, in your example it means that you not just saw it 188 times but you’ve seen it ALREADY 188 times in your life.

    Profile photo of john2 john2

    because if you did something over twice, you had to use “present perfect”

    Profile photo of athan106 athan106

    Because the time is not specified (in the last week, yesterday, in the last year). I think …. It’s present perfect. . . . . Take care

And when i can use it
Your student :p khaled

Profile photo of khaled6188 khaled6188

How about this one?

-Hey Johnny! We got a problem?

In formal conversation I’d use
-Johnny, we’ve got a problem.
or
-Johnny, we have a problem.

Profile photo of yankhonskiy yankhonskiy

    I would prefer use ‘have’ instead of ‘have got’ because ‘have’ means an ‘experience’ (ex.: Houston, We have a problem). On the other hand, ‘have got’ indicates ‘posses’ or something you have (ex.: I’ve got a headache)

    Heitor

      In BE I’d say I have got. In AmE it’d be I have. Both of them are correct.
      I have a headache. I’ve got a headache. I have a sister. I’ve got a sister.

Hi!James….. in this sentence
My brother Jack,who lives in Holland, is a teacher.
Why you can’t use (that) instead of who.
thanks

Profile photo of brala brala

    actually you could use ‘that’ but he is a person and ‘that’ sounds quite informal to refer to person. It’s more polite use ‘who’ in this case. Use ‘that’ to talk about things

    Heitor

      i think we do not use ” that” here because of reason: firstly, the clause adds more information for subject, we can delete it but does not affect to content of the whole sentence. and one rule here is whenever you see one clause is put between comma, do not use ” that”.

      dao thi hien

THANK YOU , I catch all the leccion I will learn more

JESSICA

Thanks Heitor the sentence I wrote is relative clause with extra information.That is why uoy can’t use (that) neither for people nor for animals and things. the question is the cause for this situation.
thanks again.

Hello,Teacher Jame This is a great lesson
thank you very much.

sovannaranou

OK, but natives use a contraction.
I’ve seen it …
and you can hear : I seen it …
because a consonant V is not loud enough.
Teachers want us to speak: I have
because even natives have a problem, they can not hear the consonant V too.

Hi James, why do you speak so quickly when you explain something for BEGINNERS? I can understand that if you speak to INTERMEDIATE or ADVANCED people. But BEGINNERS are just beginners and do not understand so much.

George

hi teacher James! I’ve been watching your video on youtube many time. I understand them all fully. Today I have 01 question not related to your topic. Can you help me? I hope ^^ I watch a movie. they said to each other ” and the meek shall inherit the earth” I dont understand

Profile photo of chocon6 chocon6

    Hi Chocon6,
    The meek shall inherit the earth means the weaklings will inherit the earth, however that is not the case:

    The MIGHTY will inherit the earth!
    I think that will help.

    Amarsohal

      Thanks Amarsohal! Actually, the conversation was in a church. So I think they mean “The Meek” are those who is holy, blessed….

Plz teach us some real street English for listening purpose. We don’t understand what native speakers say just because of informal English. All we learn from books and dictionary and from school is formal English. We have zillions of grammar books and dictionaries in our country but we have nothing on street or colloquial English. We even clearly understand IPA(international phonetics alphabet). The more it is informal the more it is our problem. Informal pronunciation and informal styles of speaking are our main problems. Plz, we want to learn English naturally the way some of us learn Hindi naturally from TV shows, Movies and Songs. We don’t learn grammar of Hindi language for listening purpose. Note that Hindi is our second language for some people in Bangladesh.
learning a language naturally is the ultimate clue,not learning formally. Once again plz, the more you guys try to teach us formally the more we get problem. Our English is like a sky-scrapper with no good foundation!! I believe you have understood our problems.

in this question if i use have seen,isn’t.
Then why it is wrong can anybody tell me plsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.I am very keen to know answer of this

rajpal yadav

    As I know. It’s because that sentence uses the time signal “last week” and it’s mean that happen in the past, so you must use the past tense not the present perfect tense. CMIIW :)

    “so far” means till now
    In video, he said that the simple past has no connection to the present.
    Another reason is that he used ” …. times”, I think when u do something many times in the past, u have to use the past participle but I’m not sure. :)

    Hi
    Have seen – present perfect(has relation with present things, events, no heeds to point exact time of action more important result)
    saw-past simple(has no relation with present and is related only with past events, needs to point the exact time of action)
    American usuallly use only past simple instead of present perfect
    British both

im confused with these saw and have seen. when should i use saw and why i should use have seen.

and another one. why i should use “have seen” instead of “had seen”. what is the different…? and “had had” how come it has double had in one sentence? and also ive heard that it even can be “had had had” so it has triple had in one sentence. it become more confusing. looking forward for the answers.

every single explanation will be appreciated. thanks.

I got a 100 but #8’s “correct” answer is actually not correct.

I ______ it last week. It ______ that good.

The first blank is “saw”, obviously. However since “saw” is in past tense, the second blank should be in past tense as well. Thus, it should be “wasn’t” instead of “isn’t”.

The correct answer should be:
saw, wasn’t

    I already understand! Thanks for your explanation Heitor

    Because ‘I’ve seen’ is the present perfect simple form (not past simple) and as you can see, this action is not finished in the past.. you are still alive and you are able to watch Star Wars more times… Thus, you have to use ‘have seen’ because the action is still happening in a certain way..”

I don’t like the dirty language. This is the reason why I wonder if some others expressions I usually find are to blame as well. “innit” “watcha” “whaddya”…shall I forget them?

    Oh boy, we could have a whole lesson about “innit”.

When I started watching and having learning your English videos the first time I got difficulties like not understand much but now I feel well enough in English speaking and Much more comfortable with your speech and your presentation more clear.. .
I’ve learnt understanding capacity in English by James only and not by Everyone I can’t say that 100 I’m Good may be 65% I’m very confident to speak English especially with others It’s Everything the way of James presentation…

Dear professor James,definitely, I’m not an “ain’t
“gonna”,”wanna” kind of person.
I’m not snob,I respect those who use these kind of
words, but the English language is so beautiful,
the words sound like music, the magic of the right
intonation…no, I will never, ever speak that way.
Thanks for the lesson.You’re great.

I thought that you can use the slang or jargon sometimes without any problems to understand what you are saying, but I have seen that it is not possible in the questionary. I have used “ain’t” as “aren’t” and “isn’t” but you can also use it as “haven’t” or “hasn’t”. The other explanations about the Past simple and Present Perfect, and the Subjunctive have been a review that it isn’t very difficult to understand. Thanks a lot, teacher James, it has been an interesting lesson speaking very quickly sometimes and as always very useful.

Hey James! I didn’t understand very well the difference between “I saw” and “I have seen” when I use the first one and when I use the second one?
