`all`

the cake”, “the `entire`

cake”, or “the `whole`

cake”? What about “`everyone`

in the room” or “`each one`

in the room”? There are subtle differences between `whole`

, `all`

, `entire`

, `every`

, and `each`

that even native English speakers may not be able to explain. In this lesson, we will address these differences and talk about when to use which. I will teach you what countable and uncountable nouns are, and that will help you understand which of these words to use in what context. I will also give you many examples to practice all of these. Don’t forget to do the quiz after watching!

Can you explain me no. 10?

I have the same question too, Astri

From what I understood is because after the blank is “the”, so all the answers but “all” are wrong. As we could see from his explanations and examples, the word “entire/whole” used for 1 thing/unit, as he said, the whole apple/the entire apple. Also the word “every” cannot be followed by the word “the”, because using it after the word “every” just doesn’t right… As one of the examples, “Every meal…” it doesn’t use “the” (Every ‘the’ meal) + the noun is singular (meal, not meals). It will be right if it’s written, “Every cereal box on this shelf….” |||| So just like “….all of the time….” or “all the girls”, the answer for the tenth question is “All” = All the boxes … I hope this helpsðŸ˜„

Also, “all” can be used with/without “the” after it, like “all day”

All the cereal boxes, in boxes we have plural so selected all option

Thanks a lot James!!!

Next time, a lesson about last and latest please ;)

Can you explain me no 2?

I made up my mind to ask some friends over the other day. Having done it, I asked them to bring over five pizzas, for there were five people including myself. When they arrived we settled in my living room and had a peaceful conversation mostly on cars and girls. As we were talking I made it clear that I’d take the whole pizza, so that the rest four would go for others. Each pizza was unique and awfully delicious (I managed to have a nibble of each one of those), so everyone enjoyed it. I don’t have such parties all of the time to eat pizza but rather often enough to take the edge off.

Ouh lÃ lÃ , not simple ! Thank you James !

thank you sir, I got 9/10 in the quiz!

Thank you for a lesson James!

I’ve really enjoyed the lesson, Engvid is the best

I got full! :) … Excellent lesson. I learnt a lot. Thank you James.

Got 100 % , thank you !

I got 4/10, the lesson is very difficult, I almost don’t understand and can not distinguish between every, each, whole, entire. when you explain in your lesson you said whole, entire, all dispict a unit. every, each for a group. But the question is correct when use a group for every and each. I trully don’t understand. anyway thank Jammes and hope i will better next time.

Thank you teacher, I got 100.

In no. 3

Thank you very much

thanks u are the best

Hi there! Where can I find more resources to practice more about this subject? Do you have any to share it with me?

I got a 100! Finally, I’ve understood the differences between these words. Thank you so much, James!

Great explanations!

Thank you, but I am still confused and I guess I need more examples to understand clear if possible.

I’m not sure about the last test, but it looks more natural if we use “all”. Moreover, there comes “the” after the free space. Let it be my guess, but that’s a kind of obvious stuff to put “all” into if it goes like that.

I odered a pizza yesterday and the pizza delivery guy said that each pizza has its own topping.i picked one and every time i’m hungry i can eat the whole thing.That’s because this pizza has all of the flavor that i liked.

I got the sixth question falseðŸ˜… I chose “All” but the answer is “Every”. Still a little confused about it

I got 100 ! Thank you for your lesson

Great video, thank you very much !

I really appreciate this lesson, James, you are the best teacher :)

I don’t eat pizza. A whole pizza has so many calories.

But sometimes, maybe on holiday i can eat one slice

Anyone can say me if all of the time is correct …

i don’t think so

Thank you Mr. James.
