Alex is putting on a T-shirt of Kaonashi to show off that he is a fan of Split Away😸.

Saturday, August 18th 2018

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

    Saturday, August 18th 2018

      Wow! I made a mistake!

      Sunday, August 19th 2018

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,

Saturday, August 18th 2018

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

    Saturday, August 18th 2018

I learn english to speak very well

Saturday, August 18th 2018

    Keep it up! :) Welcome to EngVid.

    Tuesday, August 21st 2018

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?

Saturday, August 18th 2018

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

Saturday, August 18th 2018

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

Saturday, August 18th 2018

    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.

    Saturday, August 18th 2018

      Thank you !

      Sunday, August 19th 2018

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

    Saturday, August 18th 2018

Thank you teacher….!!!

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

    Saturday, August 18th 2018

Thanks!

Saturday, August 18th 2018

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

    Saturday, August 18th 2018

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).

Saturday, August 18th 2018

    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.

    Saturday, August 18th 2018

thanks Alex you have a Simple style of education

Saturday, August 18th 2018

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

    Tuesday, August 21st 2018

How to do answers the quiz questions?
I did not even see a single question when i clicked on quiz?

Saturday, August 18th 2018

    I see the quiz directly under the video, so I’m not sure why you can’t see it. Maybe try a different browser? I’m using Google Chrome.

    Tuesday, August 21st 2018

I got 100 ! thank you Alex for the great test :-D

    Welcome to EngVid, Gigi! Thanks for checking out the video, doing the quiz, and leaving a comment. Let me correct your grammar a bit…

    “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.”

    Good luck with your studies!

    Tuesday, August 21st 2018

I confused
How i can study this web?

Sunday, August 19th 2018

    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.

    Tuesday, August 21st 2018

Thank you so much! It was a useful lesson.

Sunday, August 19th 2018

    That’s great to hear! And you wrote a grammatically perfect comment. Way to go! :)

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

    Tuesday, August 21st 2018

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

      Wednesday, August 22nd 2018

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

        Wednesday, August 22nd 2018

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

Sunday, August 19th 2018

    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.

    Tuesday, August 21st 2018

      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.

      Wednesday, August 22nd 2018

Thanks a lot Sir!!

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
