There is no quiz! By the way, I’m going to apply for IELTS in some years and I would like to know if I can use U.S accent and words in it. Do I have my points decreased by doing that?

Cleomir

    Hi Cleomir,

    You are not at all required to change your accent in IELTS exams. You are expected to speak clearly, at a natural pace. Do listen to native speakers for a better grip on pronunciation. It will help you to pronounce difficult words clearly. Otherwise if you speak clearly, you can do just fine with your own accent. All the best :)

      I bet you are an English teacher Abhishek or a linguist? Aren’t you?

      Your grammar explanations both make perfect sense especially the one concerning the use of “which” and “that”.

      Incidentally, Benjamin’s comments on this point coincide entirely with your.

      Regards

        Hi Regino,

        It feels great to see your comment :) But i am not a teacher. And to be honest, i didn’t even know what ‘linguist’ meant. I had to Google it :) Actually i am a student and i am not even twenty. I just try my best to help the fellow English learners who have doubts that i feel i can clarify :) Thanks for the comment though :)

I’m sometimes confused when I use “which” or “that.” But I might be able to understand the difference. No defining(which) or need defining(that), right? Thank you, Benjamin :)

Happy04

    I’m still do not know how to use these two words properly, too.

    ゞ(≧▽≦*)o

      Hi BianLei,

      There is a subtle difference between the words, ‘which’ and ‘that’. Most people (even native speakers)are unaware of that difference and use ‘which’ and ‘that’ interchangeably. This doesn’t cause any confusion and the message is effectively conveyed.

      But i have seen that Americans usually avoid using ‘which’.

      abhishek1995

        Um… Thanks for reply, I will remember that. It’s a great experience you’were shared with us!

        ゞ(≧▽≦*)o

    that is never used for an unnecessary adjective clause which has a comma before and after it.

    correct: Chicago, which is the largest state of Illions, is the third largest city in the United State.

    Incorect: Chicago, that is the largest state of Illions, is the third largest city in the United State.

    imanfarshadi

The teacher whose expertise helped me pass my exam. Don’t we have to use “helped me TO pass”? Or using without TO is also acceptable?

P.S. And yes. There is no quiz here…

Dzhemil

    Grammatically, TO pass would be more correct but in converstaional English, shortcuts are often taken.

    Benjamin

      Sorry, I meant conversational…

      Benjamin

        Thanks for your explanation)

        Dzhemil

thx :D

amuno09

Hi folks, thanks for your continued support. The basic difference between ‘that’ and ‘which’ is how important the information is to the sentence. For example: I could say ‘I know you are waiting for the quiz, which will reinforce your learning’ – the second part of this sentence is not essential to the sentence, it adds a little more detail – therefore, I use ‘which’. ‘That’ is used to introduce a clause that is very important to the meaning of the sentence. For example: I know that you are waiting for the bus that will take you home.
But as Abhishek commented, most native speakers are not aware of the difference between these two words.
Apologies for the delay in the quiz, I promise it will be up soon.

Benjamin

    Thanks so much, Mr. Benjamin. Have a good day!

    Nice British accent ^-^ I love British accent

    hamy alferjany

    Benjamin,
    I’m sorry to say that this lesson is rather confusing:
    1) Speak more! – True, but relative clauses need more study than a few minutes video. For example, what about the use of pauses (commas in writing) in dependent, independent, noun, adjectival and adverbial clauses?
    2) Does the verb ‘preprepare’ exist? – I know only of the adjective ‘pre-prepared’.
    3) At 0:42 you say “… they answer a question” instead of “… they ask you a question”.
    4) At 2:20 you say “I went to Bath on Saturday. That was a fantastic place to visit.” – Notice that these are two independent clauses.
    5) At 3:36 you say “… the place that something happens” instead of “… the place where something happens”.
    6) At 3:53 what you say about ‘why’ is completely misleading. Better examples of the use of ‘why’ are: ‘This is the reason why I came’ or ‘No one understands why you need experience’.
    7) At 4:19 the examples mix defining and non-defining clauses and the respective use of commas.
    8) At 5:50 you say “The place that I went today…” instead of “The place where I went today…”.
    QUIZ #3) ‘I’ve decided to sell the cricket bat _________ I was given for Christmas.’ – The answer ‘which’ implies that I was given other cricket bats and, not knowing about the implied context, it can be used just as well as the answer ‘that’
    QUIZ #7) The grammar note was not explained in the video: ‘that’ cannot be used in non-defining relative clauses.
    Regards.

      Hey, maybe you are right but this is a free lesson and the deliverables are still good. Not perfect but Fine. Where is your lesson ‘teacher’?

      Dalaieng

        Funny, I start my comment with ‘Benjamin’ and I get a sarcastic reply, maybe Benjamin is too busy.

        Mauro

      Benjamin is an excellent TEACHER. He stresses the main point. If you want details read/google.
      Plz be kind, NOT criticize
      Regards

      Teacher2

        Funny, I thought I was kinda helping with making a few comments… I wonder how one can critici(s/z)e a Benjamin lesson (giving the addressee the opportunity to reply) and be kind at the same time.

        Mauro

HI Benjamin I watched all your lesson and they are amazing thnak you

Once again one more great video from you Benjamin.
I took out the quiz THAT was uploaded by Benjamin WHO is a great teacher and WHOSE accent is very nice.
I was taking the quiz WHEN i found some other resources WHERE i can learn English.
I tried to put some of these relative pronounses and relative adverbs in my above two examples.
Benjamin i request you to let me know if there is any mistake in these two examples.
THANKS A LOT for this video.

Hi teacher Benjamin, nice to meet you! Thank you for the lesson! :)

dorycam

I don’t understand the difference. The questions 6 and 7 are similar, so why the right answer to the #6 is “that” and to the #7 is “which”?

    Hi Benjamin
    Greetings,

    The following are the examples I have been facing since I started to learn English, there are no “MAIN VERB” (like is, was, have been, had been, shall be, etc.) between subject & verb when some introductions and perusal are written.

    1. Following bills raised by us are still unpaid.

    2. FIRE RATED DOOR REQUESTED FOR ELECTRICAL DUCT.

    3. Many cars parked at basement floor to reduce the congestion.

    4. Smoking prohibited for healthy health.

    I am glad to receive response from your end if you can.

    THANKING YOU.

Thanks. I would like to say that your example on “that” was not proper, in my opinion. And perhaps you did not clarify the difference between “which” and “that”. I tried to make out it from your quiz. I will be grateful for your further explanation.I appreciate your work.

I am glad to have found this site.

mgmmangalindan

Hi, Benji (you’re don’t mean, i hope).
Correct me,please, if i’m mistaken: if in your exemple “selling THE car” wouldn’t be “the” it’s might been replased “that” on “which”?
I really excused for my grammar(((

hjugoboss

Hello Benjamin, you are doing awesome. In the above video you describe how to use “that” and “which” and difference between them. As far as I understood that “the word that” is to describe the definite thing and “the word which” is to describe indefinite. How this sentence “I’m selling this dress, which I bought in London.” is correct

Aahil manzar

Hi. Thank you !
The example “The place that I went today” is given; I don’t understand why it is not something like “The place that I went to today.” Go is intransitive.
Is it conversational ?

got that now 💪

Thanks Benjamin.

Alex-1956

I’m selling this dress, WHICH I bought in London.
I’m selling the car THAT I bought in Los Angeles.
WHY THIS

lucascf

Soon i am going to pass IELTS so i need a person to practise My English. so who can help to me?

Perizat23

There is tendency nowadays to use THAT to introduce a noun complement (whether the antecedent is (BE is more “correct” !!!)animate or inanimate), or to discard the “link” (who, whom, that) altogether : the man (that) I saw, the car (that) I bought… Especially in American “English”…

@lexandre

I got 9 from 10 quiz, please can anybody explain me; what the difference from “which” and “that”. In the 3-rd question i have chosen the variant “which”, but the correct option was “that”. How to get difference in this?

Mir Murad

the short cut to know when to use ‘which’ or ‘that’ in a sentence is the use of comma in one and no comma in another.
restrictive clause do not have comma (you use ‘that’). example:i’m selling the car that i bought in Los Angeles.
non-restrictive clause have commas (you use ‘which’). example: i’m selling this dress, which i bought in London.
i hope this help.

lordjabulani

Thank you for your lesson, very clear to understand.
