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 :(.

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

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

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

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.

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

    Profile photo of Francisco Carlos 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.

    Profile photo of Alex 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.

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

Profile photo of Hamza19889 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.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

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

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

    Profile photo of ahmaher81 ahmaher81

      Thanks!

      Profile photo of Fabiana Alfonso 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!

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Thanks again!!

      Profile photo of Fabiana Alfonso Fabiana Alfonso

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

        Profile photo of Fabiana Alfonso Fabiana Alfonso

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

          Profile photo of Alex 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 .

Profile photo of Natalia Natalia

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

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

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

Profile photo of isakibrahim8315 isakibrahim8315

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

    Thanks for checking out the video!

    Profile photo of Alex 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.

Profile photo of ghost rider 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.

    Profile photo of Alex 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.

Profile photo of yasser Daoud 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. :)

If I may suggest another word “raw”. Cheers

Profile photo of roshavbg roshavbg

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

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

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

      Profile photo of roshavbg 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

        Profile photo of Alex Alex
