    Hello Alex, I´m Yenerlyn from Venezuela. I´m extremely happy to see you again on a video. Let me tell you this was a very good lesson and I enjoyed it. Thanks!!! Very well done

    Saturday, June 15th 2019

Thanks a lot for your lesson, Alex. Those words are difficult to use for me while speaking, even though I know all of them. I maybe find some occasions to use those expressions. By the way, Mr. President of the USA seems to use “very very.” :)

Friday, June 14th 2019

    Hi Feles! Yes, Mr. President doesn’t seem to have a large vocabulary. Everything is tremendous, and every man he likes is “a good guy! Great guy! I love him!” :p

    As for the lesson, I know it’s tough to use words in regular conversation even if you know them when you see or hear them. It takes time and regular effort to try to internalize new knowledge.

    Friday, June 14th 2019

      I honestly appreciate your reply, Alex. I wish someday I will be able to handle this language better, even a bit more.

      Friday, June 14th 2019

I got 10/10 !!!!! Thanks for this video Alex Sir😊

Friday, June 14th 2019

    *high five* Nice job, palakshi! I’m glad you enjoyed the lesson.

    Friday, June 14th 2019

I got 8 out of 10 sir!!! I read the quiz thoroughly but it was hard for me to find the common word for fairly. It would of great help if you just guide me through that word. Otherwise, the quiz was a great help on improving my English vocabulary.I would love to talk English like you do after I learn it properly. Anyways, Thank You for the quiz Alex Sir!!!

Friday, June 14th 2019

    Neither do i, i failed answered that quiz.

    Saturday, September 14th 2019

Thanks a lot for your lesson,Teacher

Friday, June 14th 2019

I didn’t get question 8 right.

Friday, June 14th 2019

    That’s still really good. The important thing is to become familiar with the adverbs even if the sense of degree isn’t 100% when you’re speaking.

    Friday, June 14th 2019

      Hi, Mr Alex how are you, I am Yaseen from Iraq soi am very happy to enjoy your lessons. I am want to learn English I very love it. so can you help me,

      Wednesday, July 10th 2019

Shouldn’t “4. I’m mostly finished my essay. ” be “I’ve mostly….”?

Friday, June 14th 2019

    You can use both, just like you can say “I am finished” or “I have finished.” Good question!

    Friday, June 14th 2019

    also don’t understand the phrase I’m finished. it sounds strange. what’s the grammar rule here?

    Saturday, June 22nd 2019

      “I’m finished” is passive Present Simple form. You are probably more used to active Present Simple form like “I’m finishing the essay.”

      The form is “I + am + past participle”.

      Passive form is used to reverse the IMPORTANCE from OBJECT to SUBJECT.

      For example we can say: “Someone robbed me” in Past Simple tense. But word “someone” is not interesting, it is not important, because we don’t know who was the robber. If we switch the importance from subject “someone” to object “me”, we can say: “I was robbed.” In this case “I + was + past participle”.

      General usage is: “Subject + any tense proposition + past participle.”

      Next sample. If two people are arguing and one just don’t want to argue anymore he or she can say: “I am done.” It means: “I have finished or completed the arguing with you.”

      Next sample. If someone over plays me in shooting computer game: “I am doomed.”

      Next sample. From some movies if someone is in really bad situation, like some bad guys are chasing him and he realizes that there is no way out: “You are ‘fucked’. Now we are going to beat you like crazy.” (Sorry for ugly word).

      Wednesday, June 26th 2019

I got 09. Alex what does utterly mean? I’m a little confused .Isn’t that mean completely ?

Friday, June 14th 2019

    utterly = completely, totally, absolutely, entirely wholly, fully, thoroughly. I means it is 100% completely.

    Wednesday, June 26th 2019

I completely believe that your lessons are very useful for learners English all over in the world, thank Alex

Friday, June 14th 2019

    It is probably better: “I completely believe that your lessons are very useful for ENGLISH LEARNER all over the world (WITHOUT IN WORD), thanks (MISSING ‘S’) Alex.”

    But I utterly agree with you.

    Wednesday, June 26th 2019

Thank you, teacher….!!

Friday, June 14th 2019

thank you for this video, it is pretty good. but I want to ask you to write the examples, this will be rather helpful.

Friday, June 14th 2019

Thanks for your effort

Friday, June 14th 2019

Hi Alex ,
Merci pour cette leçon.
Question 4 . shouldn’t you write ” I mostly finished ” rather than ” I’m mostly finished ?
Dans l’attente de te lire
A bientot

Saturday, June 15th 2019

    Alex, sorry to jump in. Hope you don’t mind.

    About question 4. It is not the same meaning. “I mostly finished” is Past Simple. Past Simple is used for actions in the PAST that does not have any influence to the current state we are talking about. For example: “I finished primary school 20 years ago.” This was some action in the past.

    But in this case we want to say that we ARE FINISING the essay. The essay will be almost finished any time soon.

    We can use Present Perfect Simple tense like: “I have mostly finished”. Present Perfect is used for action that has started in the past and is still continuing in the present. Like essay, I started writing essay in the past and I am still writing it.

    And “I am mostly finished” is passive use of Present Simple tense. Please see my detailed explanation few lines up.

    Wednesday, June 26th 2019

Thanks Mr Alex it is very usefully.

Saturday, June 15th 2019

Hi everybody! I’ve come back!

Saturday, June 15th 2019

    Nice to meet you. Where’ve you been?

    Saturday, September 14th 2019

Great lesson. I got 9/10, but I must say that I do
like using adverbs. They give ” strength ” or rather
“support” to what I’m saying.
Great lesson, Alex, as usual.

Saturday, June 15th 2019

Your lessons are really helpful.

Saturday, June 15th 2019

I thought pretty = quite and they are less intense than so/very/really.

Hello Alex
I am new Comer, but I love the way your team taught. Whenever I have time, I visit engrid and learn, then of course sit a
quizz, mostly I gained full score.
Thank you AleXbox, this combination lesson is very useful for us, second language speakers.
I even recommend your site.

Sunday, October 20th 2019

Thank you Mr. Alex. I am completely satisfied with your explanations!

Wednesday, October 23rd 2019

Hallo Alex!
I’m always impressed, how pretty simple your explanation ist.
The adjective utter and the adverb utterly are often used as an intensifier to mean “total” — often with negative connotations. Utterly doesn`t go for example with excited, because if you are excited about something that is normally a positive emotion. But sometimes utterly and utter can be used in positive context: “utterly gorgeous”, “utterly brilliant”.
Although complete and completely are much neutral and can be used in positive, neutral and negative context, we cannot say completely excited.

Alex, jestes naprawde swietny w tym co robisz, masz niesamowity talent. Bardzo lubie Cie sluchac. Keep going.

Friday, March 27th 2020

Very helpful lesson. Thank you!

Friday, April 10th 2020

Hi Alex,hi everyone.
As always i took the quiz before watching the video. I wanted to check how good my vocabulary is. I got 9/10. I made a little mistake in 7 question. I choose the answer “considerably”. I think it’s correct too.
Synonyms of “very” are:
and i assume there are more of them.
However when i was taking the quiz I hadn’t known that awfully can be used as “Very”
I always thought it can be used only for bad, negatives things like “badly or unpleasantly”
But now i know we can say. I’m awfully happy i could watch this strikingly useful lesson.
Thanks to you i’ve learned a bit of vocabulary again.
Many thanks Alex

All the best for everyone.

Ps. Alex. I rather like your T-shirts. It seems you are quite a fan of serials. Isn’t it?

Monday, May 11th 2020

Good lesson! thanks a lot. It was very useful to me. (or for me??) I always have this confusion, when to use to or for…
