This is awesome! Thanks engvid

Marcellavenson

    I’m glad you liked it!

    Alex

Hi Alex, thanks for the lesson. I’ve got a question for you and English speaking people. Do / did you spell those homophones without mistakes all the time? For us, using Chinese characters in our writing, is sometimes complicating, makes confusion while writing in my head :(.

FELES

    I don’t think I made any mistakes in this video, but now you’re making me nervous! :)

    Alex

      You never made any mistakes, Alex. I was just curious ;). I know you are such a smart teacher like Packman.

      FELES

Thank you.

EarnHan

    You’re quite welcome.

    Alex

Rafael Torres

    Don’t worry. Winter is coming.

    Alex

Thank you Alex!

JJJR

    My pleasure. Thanks for checking out the video.

    Alex

Great lesson, Alex.Got 10/10.
I have my own “methodology” to learn: I listen first
and I read the explanation afterwards. It’s a good
exercise to improve my listening skill.This time I
completed the quiz before reading the explanation.
Thanks a mill,Alex.

Sonia1234

    Great lesson, Alex. I have my own methodology to learn English. I listen first and I read the explanation afterward.

    Francisco Carlos

    Do whatever works best for you. I always think it’s better to just listen the first time, then listen again to listen for details you missed.

    Alex

    Professor Alex, I often listen to the explanation
    twice and even thrice.I do want to improve my
    listening skill, and I do need and want to learn
    more grammar, as wall.
    Thank you for kind comment.

    Sonia1234

Thanks,Alex. Very usefullesson. A smile

byte

Thanks Alex

PacoBe

    It’s coming! You will have to wait a little bit, but it will be there. :)

    Alex

hi teacher alex you are handsome today
nice lesson congrats
can i say foreword rather than introduction

Hamza19889

    In the context of a novel, it can work, but sometimes one person writes the foreword, and one person writes the introduction after it, so they can be two separate things.

    Alex

Hi, Alex. great lesson and very useful!Thanks!

Francisco Carlos

    No problem! I’m glad you liked it.

    Alex

Nice work! Keep it up and put this knowledge into practice!

Alex

    i dream of becoming an English teacher too :-)

    ann ann

      You can do it! Like anything else, it just takes time and regular effort.

      Alex

9/10 very useful class since i used to mix them up, thanks anyhow Alex.

fernando triana

    Any time. Thanks for checking out this lesson.

    Alex

Thanks teacher Alex you explain so good, now i could to understand better the diference.

Fabiana Alfonso

    just correction: “could understand” not “could to”

    ahmaher81

      Thanks!

      Fabiana Alfonso

    “Now I can better understand the difference” or “understand the difference better.” This is a funny one, but this is the construction of the sentence. Normally we do put “better” after the verb, though, so I understand why you wrote this!

    Alex

      Thanks again!!

      Fabiana Alfonso

        For me is complicare to writte, but when i’m watching your video i undertand.

        Fabiana Alfonso

          That’s great! Whatever helps you learn is good. :)

          Alex

Interesting . We remember from school how to say “London is the capital … ” , “travel” , etc . But no one taught us how to say “roll up the carpet ” , ” wrap around my arm “, or something like that . And it turns out that in the routine life we are helpless . Thank you ! I’d like more such lessons .

Natalia

    Yep. It’s often the daily language that’s the most difficult because we take it for granted.

    Alex

It’s very useful lesson. Thank you so much Alex.

isakibrahim8315

    “It’s a very useful lesson.” Don’t forget the article because “lesson” is a countable noun.

    Thanks for checking out the video!

    Alex

It’s very good information about English. Thank you Alex . You are always a good teacher from my side :)

Alikurnazoglu

    That’s kind of you to say. Thanks for studying with me and with EngVid.

    Alex

10/10. Thanks Alex, your lesson always are excellent.

InaldoBNunes

    “Your lessons are always excellent.”

    Nice job on the quiz! Now comes the hard part: put the knowledge into your daily practice. :)

    Alex

Thank you so much, Alex!
An amazing lesson as always. I’m really looking forward (foreword?:))) to watching the Advanced Homophones you’re gonna explain.

Bra1n

    Thanks a lot, Bra1n! And don’t worry, you’ll see the advanced homophones lesson soon enough. Winter is coming…

    Alex

Hi Alex. This was a very interesting lesson. Thank you so much.

    Alex

thanks Alex first time for me here and it’s my first video it was usefull for me

fatma mk

    Welcome to EngVid, fatma! I’m glad you enjoyed the video, and I hope to see you commenting more in the future!

    Alex

hello. plzz answer my question.
why do we say “you are welcome” not welcomed.
It sounds like passive then why not ed ,and welcome is also a verb.

he was welcomed warmly.
this one is right then why we don’t use ed in first one .

help me.

ghost rider

    It’s a weird one, but “welcome” is considered an adjective in “you’re welcome” or “everyone is welcome.”

    The other sentence is correct and is a standard passive sentence as you mentioned.

    Alex

ths Alex you are always my preferred teacher , i wanna ask you a question about the difference between these lessons and the american series, movies . I can’t understand every thing the american movies but i understand everything in the engvid lessons , at last i appreciate your efforts in teaching English.

yasser Daoud

    Hi yasser, these are short educational videos, so idiomatic speech is limited (except in advanced videos), and most teachers try to speak clearer than in a standard conversational situation.

    Try some of James’ intermediate and advanced lessons if you’d like to hear a quicker type of English. :)

    Alex

Thank you very much; it’s very interesting

ghiz

    Alex

A good revision of some of the most common homophones that we can find while we study English at an intermediate level. It has been a good video class and very amusing. Thanks a lot, teacher Alex, we are learning American English with great sensations and trust.

Thank you! was helpful :)

mkcm

    I’m always happy to hear that. Thanks for watching!

    Alex

If I may suggest another word “raw”. Cheers

roshavbg

    Thanks! Do you mean “raw” and “Ra,” the Egyptian god? :p

    Alex

      I taught about raw like “raw material”. It sounds like “roll and role” in your example 10 number :D

      roshavbg

        Ah, I believe it’s closer to what you say in British English, but it’s much different in Canadian/American English. It rhymes with…

        saw
        law
        raw
        bra
        paw

        Alex

          Thanks Alex, there is no words for what you and your colleagues doing. Wish you all the best.

          roshavbg

this is really awesome
