FELES

    It’s called Spirited Away in North America, and yes, I love most Miyazaki movies. :)

    Alex

      Wow! I made a mistake!

      FELES

    Thanks for the lesson Alex.

Hi Teacher,
I have a litle concern at:He decided to go to Hawaii __________ a relaxing vacation. ==> I chose :having.

Why did he decide to go to Hawaii? ==> Having a relaxing vaction. Is it ok?
THanks Teacher,

dhnguyen

    You must use “to have.” Why did he decide to go to Hawaii? :)

    Alex

I learn english to speak very well

Somayehsmm

    Keep it up! :) Welcome to EngVid.

    Alex

Got 100 :) . Alex, tell me if I use “for, to and for staying” in this sentence which is ” I go the gym ….. Healthy”. Will it consider fine?

Annie

Alex ,why you have given the options for both ” to and for” in quiz , When you already told both are correct to use?

Annie

They started doing yoga “to improve / for improve /for improving ” their health . Can we use any one of them in a structure”?

Annie

    You must use “to improve.” Many students make the mistake of using “for.” You can sometimes use “for + gerund” if it’s a longer action.

    Alex

      Thank you !

      Annie

Hi Alex the subject was so easy please teach some tough lessons. tnx

Jakub Alvarez

    As always, it’s my pleasure, Jakub. Nice to see you commenting again!

    Alex

Thanks!

Tarcisio Neto

    Any time! Thanks for studying with me and with EngVid. :)

    Alex

Thank’s Alex, useful lesson! I’m one of those that use “for” instead “to”. To or for, that’s the question! In spanish we only have a preposition (para).

Jorge

    It’s okay sometimes for longer actions, and if you follow it with a gerund (verb + ing). However, to be safe, it’s best to use to + base verb in these situations.

    Alex

thanks Alex you have a Simple style of education

Mohamed mgn

    Thanks, Mohamed. I always feel it’s better to be clear than complicated.

    Alex

    “This was my first time logging into EngVid. Your lesson was so useful. I got 10 correct. I didn’t think too much when I did the quiz, just followed what you taught. I don’t know if it’s good or bad.”

I confused
How i can study this web?

Sharqawi

    I’m not sure if I understand your question. What do you mean? To study with EngVid, most students watch the videos that are interesting to them and then practice by doing the quizzes.

    Alex

Thank you so much! It was a useful lesson.

Ibrahim Adil

Júlio César L Sousa

    No problem Julio Cesar. By the way, I’ve always wondered…do you prefer being called Julio, Cesar, or Julio Cesar?

    Alex

      Hi Alex. Some people call me Júlio César, but almost everyone calls me Júlio.

      Júlio César L Sousa

        Answering your question, I like both ways, Alex. Don’t worry.

        Júlio César L Sousa

Thank you, Alex, it was very useful.
May you set out some example of ” a longer action” with “for+ gerund”

Hassan ABS

    Sure! Just keep in mind that it’s more common to use an infinitive of purpose in most scenarios.

    I wear glasses for driving.
    She bought a blender for making smoothies.
    We need a cabinet for storing official documents.
    They use their car for city driving.

    Alex

      Thank you, and hear what I have understood from what you have just laid out.
      The key is that you can use either structure to get the same meaning, on a condition you have to use them in a right order.
      An instance from your lesson
      ” I go to the gym to stay healthy”.
      Mine ” I go to the gym for staying healthy”
      I don’t know if I am right. Please inform me. if you would.

      Hassan ABS

Thanks a lot Sir!!

    Alex

Thanks for your lesson Alex: it was very useful to me.
I have a question for you: does the form “for + ing” have the same meaning than the one you speak about in this lesson? For example: can I say “I’m studying English for improving my job prospects” as well as “I’m studying English to improve my job prospects”?
Thank you in advance for your reply
