    Yep! I absulutely agree with you; it was a phenomenal video lesson. I admire the way she explains grammar with great easy.

    Talking abou t modal verbs, could it be possible for you Gill to develop a lesson on HAVE and must? As far as I can tell, there are also subtle differences in their use.

    Thanks for sharing all this with us Gill. Take care.

Hi Gill, I have a question about the order that may/might it’s place in a sentence. Can it be place after have,like in the example you gave (Do you think you may have dropped them in the street) can it be Doyou think you have MAY dropped them …….

Also I didn’t quite understood the difference between maybe and may be, May you help to understand that please?

I really enjoy watching your videos, it was a while since your last one :D

Profile photo of Fernandabelen Fernandabelen

    Hello Fernandabelen — thanks for your question. The word order must be ‘may have’ — it doesn’t sound correct the other way around. As I explained in the video, ‘maybe’ means ‘perhaps’, but ‘may be’ are two separate words meaning ‘could be’. Thanks for your kind words — I’m glad you find the videos enjoyable :-)

Thank Ms Gill for your lesson! but i’d like to ask more something. I think the sentence: maybe and may be have same meaning is correct. both of them are possible, they are different about position in sentence, when they are in first sentence it’s maybe, and when position of them in sentence they are may be. please explain more for me

Profile photo of nguyen van long nguyen van long

    Thanks Nguyen — as I said in the video, ‘maybe’ and ‘may be’ are different. Please see my reply to Fernandabelen above. Best wishes :-)

This lesson has been very helpful because we have reviewed two important modal verbs like “may” and “might”, and overall the difference between two expressions with the same sound but not equal in meaning, very useful this last explanation of “maybe” or “perhaps”, not verb, and “may be” that it’s used as a verb. Thanks a lot, teacher Gill, we are lucky people because your method of learning English is very pedagogic and amusing, we can enjoy listening to all the explanations.

Hi Gill!

Thanks for this lesson! It’s always necessary to know these slight differences between similar words so that we can use them in the right way and make ourselves more clear.

May we have more videos like this one?

Best wishes from Rio de Janeiro!

PS: I have heard that the Past Participle of the verb “to forget” may be “forgot” or “forgotten”. Which one is used in the UK? Or both might be used indistinctly?

Profile photo of Eduardo França Eduardo França

    Hi Eduardo — thank you for your kind words! Some verbs have different forms in the past tense, and this applies to the verb ‘to forget’. So for the simple past tense we say ‘I forgot’, but in the present perfect (which requires the use of the past participle) we say ‘I have forgotten’. Some verbs have the same form for the simple past and the past participle, but other verbs have different forms. I’m sorry it’s so complicated! But here is a link that might be helpful: https://www.thoughtco.com/difference-between-a-weak-verb-and-a-strong-verb-1691036
    All the best :-)

      Thank you for replying Gill! It was very kind of yours. The website you suggested me is quite interesting as well. :)

      Profile photo of Eduardo França Eduardo França

Got 100. Gill , “may” we used just specifically for elders or someone whom we respect or generally for anyone in a polite way? Another thing gill. I didn’t get the clearer concept between maybe and may be . I found both more or less the same. Can you make it More easier for me?

Profile photo of Annie Annie

    Thanks Anne — ‘may’ is used for anyone you want to be polite to. Regarding your other question, please see my reply to Fernandabelen above. Best wishes :-)

Hi Gill,
Firstly I would like to thanks for the wonderful lesson.
May I have a question for the quiz.
I wonder about the question number 7.

” He might be coming to the party. ”
Is it mean the speaker does not sure that he is going to the party now (on the way). However, it is possible that he is on his way.
May I say that it is possible that he does not want to go to the party? or I’m just thinking over.

Thanks Ms.Gill. I was really doubtful about the use of may or might in a sentence. Sometimes I say may in a sentence in place of might. But after taking lesson from you, I really have run out this difficulty. Thanks again Ma’am.
Also after taking your lecture I got 100% result. That means your way of teaching is helpful for everyone in getting rid of their respective difficulties.
Looking forward to see more from your side Ma’am. All the very best for that. !

Hi Gill, I really love your lessons :).
I have a question for you:is it correct use”may” in this context?
“before your arrival we’ll help you giving you all the information you may need to reach it.”
The idea is that you “may” need my help because if you usually use navigators probably you don’t need my help to get to my house, otherwise you will surely need my assistance. Is it correct?
Thank you :)

Hi Gill!
Great lesson, thank you!

Is there any difference in use of may/might when probability in the past (event that did or didn’t happen) is mentioned?

For example, I dropped my phone —

1) I might have broken its display. (I know I didn’t)
2) I may have broken something inside it. (I don’t know yet)

Are might/may interchangeable here?
