    I’m glad you liked it!

    Friday, October 6th 2017

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 :(.

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

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

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

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

      Wednesday, October 4th 2017

Thank you.

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    You’re quite welcome.

    Friday, October 6th 2017

Thanks for the lesson, not bad for a beginner. 😄

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    You’re very welcome. I’m glad you enjoyed it!

    Saturday, October 7th 2017

Thanks Alex, awesome lesson, as usual. Longing for hearing from you soon again. Take care.

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    You’ll hear from me again soon! I’m not going anywhere. :)

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

thank you for this lesson…short and sweet…lol

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    Thanks! I’m glad you liked it.

    Saturday, October 7th 2017

Good thank you!!! a lot of new words for me

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    That’s a good thing, right?

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

Thanks Alex, it is a great lesson and FFVII was a fantastic game too.

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    Thanks, Rafael! I totally agree about FFVII. I’m curious about the remake.

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

Thank you Alex, this lesson is very useful for me.

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    That’s great. :) I’m happy to help you out.

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

Thanks so much Alex!!!Great lesson!!
Waiting for the advanced level of homophones ;)

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    Don’t worry. Winter is coming.

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

Thank you Alex!

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    My pleasure. Thanks for checking out the video.

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

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.

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

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

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    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.

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    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.

    Wednesday, October 4th 2017

Thanks,Alex. Very usefullesson. A smile

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    You’re very welcome. Thanks for watching. :)

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

Very useful, thanks teacher….!!!

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    No problem! Thanks for watching.

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

Looking forward to the advanced lesson!
Thanks Alex

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

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

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

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

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    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.

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

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

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    No problem! I’m glad you liked it.

    Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

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

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    i dream of becoming an English teacher too :-)

    Wednesday, October 4th 2017

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

      Tuesday, October 17th 2017

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

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

    Any time. Thanks for checking out this lesson.

    Wednesday, October 4th 2017

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

Tuesday, October 3rd 2017

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

    Wednesday, October 4th 2017

    “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!

    Wednesday, October 4th 2017

      Thanks again!!

      Saturday, October 7th 2017

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

        Saturday, October 7th 2017

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

          Tuesday, October 17th 2017

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 .

Wednesday, October 4th 2017

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

    Wednesday, October 4th 2017

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

Wednesday, October 4th 2017

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

    Thanks for checking out the video!

    Thursday, October 5th 2017

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

Wednesday, October 4th 2017

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

    Thursday, October 5th 2017

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

Wednesday, October 4th 2017

    “Your lessons are always excellent.”

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

    Thursday, October 5th 2017

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.

Wednesday, October 4th 2017

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

    Thursday, October 5th 2017

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

Wednesday, October 4th 2017

    Any time. Thanks for checking it out, Julio Cesar! How are you doing these days?

Thursday, October 5th 2017

    Thanks! I’m glad you liked it.

    Sunday, October 8th 2017

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

Thursday, October 5th 2017

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

    Sunday, October 8th 2017

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.

Thursday, October 5th 2017

    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.

    Sunday, October 8th 2017

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.

Thursday, October 5th 2017

    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. :)

    Sunday, October 8th 2017

Thank you very much; it’s very interesting

Thursday, October 5th 2017

    You’re very welcome. I’m glad you liked it.

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.

Thanks Teacher Alex for your 2nd series of homophones which is quite interesting and clear to adopt the concept in everyday conversations.
I’m looking forward to watch your next lesson in near future.

Monday, October 9th 2017

    It’s coming! It’s much more difficult, but if you’ve watched the first two and enjoyed them, I still think the third one will be useful.

    Sunday, October 15th 2017

If I may suggest another word “raw”. Cheers

Friday, October 13th 2017

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

    Sunday, October 15th 2017

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

      Sunday, October 15th 2017

        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

        Wednesday, October 18th 2017

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