chews. Besides improving your vocabulary and preventing a misunderstanding, often the double-meaning of these spoken English words can be the key to understanding jokes. So check this out and test your understanding of these words by doing the quiz at the end of the lesson. Thanks for clicking, and make sure to watch my earlier video with homophones for beginners.
This is awesome! Thanks engvid
I’m glad you liked it!
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! :)
You never made any mistakes, Alex. I was just curious ;). I know you are such a smart teacher like Packman.
You’re quite welcome.
Thanks for the lesson, not bad for a beginner. ?
You’re very welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks Alex, awesome lesson, as usual. Longing for hearing from you soon again. Take care.
You’ll hear from me again soon! I’m not going anywhere. :)
thank you for this lesson…short and sweet…lol
Thanks! I’m glad you liked it.
Good thank you!!! a lot of new words for me
That’s a good thing, right?
Thanks Alex, it is a great lesson and FFVII was a fantastic game too.
Thanks, Rafael! I totally agree about FFVII. I’m curious about the remake.
Thank you Alex, this lesson is very useful for me.
That’s great. :) I’m happy to help you out.
Thanks so much Alex!!!Great lesson!!
Waiting for the advanced level of homophones ;)
Don’t worry. Winter is coming.
Thank you Alex!
My pleasure. Thanks for checking out the video.
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.
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.
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.
Thanks,Alex. Very usefullesson. A smile
You’re very welcome. Thanks for watching. :)
Very useful, thanks teacher….!!!
No problem! Thanks for watching.
Looking forward to the advanced lesson!
It’s coming! You will have to wait a little bit, but it will be there. :)
hi teacher alex you are handsome today
nice lesson congrats
can i say foreword rather than introduction
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.
Hi, Alex. great lesson and very useful!Thanks!
No problem! I’m glad you liked it.
Nice work! Keep it up and put this knowledge into practice!
i dream of becoming an English teacher too :-)
You can do it! Like anything else, it just takes time and regular effort.
9/10 very useful class since i used to mix them up, thanks anyhow Alex.
Any time. Thanks for checking out this lesson.
Thanks teacher Alex you explain so good, now i could to understand better the diference.
just correction: “could understand” not “could to”
“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!
For me is complicare to writte, but when i’m watching your video i undertand.
That’s great! Whatever helps you learn is good. :)
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 .
Yep. It’s often the daily language that’s the most difficult because we take it for granted.
It’s very useful lesson. Thank you so much Alex.
“It’s a very useful lesson.” Don’t forget the article because “lesson” is a countable noun.
Thanks for checking out the video!
It’s very good information about English. Thank you Alex . You are always a good teacher from my side :)
That’s kind of you to say. Thanks for studying with me and with EngVid.
10/10. Thanks Alex, your lesson always are excellent.
“Your lessons are always excellent.”
Nice job on the quiz! Now comes the hard part: put the knowledge into your daily practice. :)
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.
Thanks a lot, Bra1n! And don’t worry, you’ll see the advanced homophones lesson soon enough. Winter is coming…
Hi Alex. This was a very interesting lesson. Thank you so much.
Any time. Thanks for checking it out, Julio Cesar! How are you doing these days?
I liked this lesson very much.You’re a very good
Thanks, zigmund. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
Very interesting one and quite useful
Thanks! I’m glad you liked it.
thanks Alex first time for me here and it’s my first video it was usefull for me
Welcome to EngVid, fatma! I’m glad you enjoyed the video, and I hope to see you commenting more in the future!
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 .
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.
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.
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. :)
Thank you very much; it’s very interesting
You’re very welcome. I’m glad you liked it.
No problem. Thanks for your support and for studying with EngVid, Amaso.
Have a nice day.
You’re welcome and same to you. I hope the weather is beautiful in Cambodia.
Thanks for this lesson. Very clean and funny examples
No problem. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
thank you for this lesson. clear as crystal
You’re welcome. I’m glad it was clear!

Hello! Thanks teacher! I miss your tests! I was not on web for a longtime.
Welcome back, Soei! I’ve got many more videos and quizzes coming your way.
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.
That’s great to hear, angar! I’ve got plenty of videos coming in the future too. Thanks for studying with me.

I’m looking forward to watch your next lesson in near future.

If I may suggest another word “raw”. Cheers
Thanks! Do you mean “raw” and “Ra,” the Egyptian god? :p
I taught about raw like “raw material”. It sounds like “roll and role” in your example 10 number :D
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…
Thanks Alex, there is no words for what you and your colleagues doing. Wish you all the best.
this is really awesome
Thanks. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
You really make it easy to understand!
Can you make a list with the 10 words that foreign students most have difficult to pronounce?
Thanks for this lesson Alex!
That kind of list would be different for many regions, but I do have a lesson that is kind of about that:
Great Alex, thank you for the suggestion!
