useful lesson !!

Tuesday, May 18th 2010

    Thanks for your lesson about “necessity”.

    Wednesday, February 20th 2013

    u r completely right

    Sunday, March 26th 2017

can we use ‘have’ with third person (he) ? as in first quiz

Tuesday, May 18th 2010

    Yes, but you have to conjugate it. We say “He has to,” and NOT “He have to.”

    Friday, July 9th 2010

      thank you Alex …Thanks to you I can answer all questions correctly…..

      Sunday, January 15th 2012

    No, we can not use have with third person, we use has with singular form….like he has, she has nut with plural pronoun we use have like..they have .we have

    Tuesday, November 30th 2010

Does the use of get in your examples make them stronger?

Tuesday, May 18th 2010

    There isn’t a very big difference in meaning. Both are strong.

    Friday, July 9th 2010

can u tell me when to use was and were

he was playing
they were playing

what were u doing?

Tuesday, May 18th 2010

    As I know, these sentence are “past continuous tense” WAS/WERE + V.ing to show CONTINUOUS ACTIVITY someone did in the past. For example, “Yesterday at 5 pm, they were playing football.”
    About WAS and WERE, I/He/She/It/singular noun + WAS while You/We/They/plu+ were
    Sorry if there r some mistakes.
    Hope it can hope u some….
    Good luck :)

Tuesday, May 25th 2010


Sunday, May 30th 2010

This lesson is very useful but what about the
difference between don’t/doesn’t have to and
mustn’t . I think there is a difference .
If you answer me I’d be appreciated .

Sunday, May 30th 2010

    “He must not,” or “he mustn’t,” is much more formal than “I do not have to,” or “He does not have to.” It is also much stronger with a change in meaning.

    “I don’t have to go to school,” states that there is a bit of a choice or an option.

    “I must not go to school,” states that if I DO go to school, there will be negative consequences.

    Friday, July 9th 2010

      Very usefull clarification.

      Friday, March 7th 2014

nice and useful lesson

Monday, May 31st 2010

when we use the the term will and would?

Tuesday, June 1st 2010

    “Would” is for past habits that took place over a period of time, and for most conditionals.

    “In high school, I would study every night.” (habit)

    “If I had a million dollars, I would buy my parents a giant mansion.” (conditional)

    Monday, January 10th 2011

Dear Alex,
I have a mistake at this exercise. Please explaint. Thanks

She _________ call after 10pm.
My answer is “have to” and your answer is “must not”

Tuesday, June 1st 2010

    i did some mistake we were wrong because we can not say she have to call after 10pm we can say she has to call after 10pm.

    Sunday, November 7th 2010

Friday, June 11th 2010

the most interesting thing is that my english teacher told about quite another difference between “must” and “have to”. so I’m confused…

Saturday, June 12th 2010

Iam like lean at blue lebue

Monday, June 14th 2010

Iam like thit prongam because is bery good

Monday, June 14th 2010

As a native English speaker I question whether “I have got to” is correct – I think it would be better to say “I have to”, “I need to”, or “I must”. “I have got to” seems unnecessary to me.

Wednesday, June 16th 2010

    Hi Lana,
    as far as I know, HAVE GOT TO is quite informal. It can be used when talking about obligation and certainty: I HAVE (GOT) TO GO NOW; IT CAN’T BE 3 O’CLOCK; IT’S (GOT) TO BE MUCH LATER.
    However, “GOT” can’t normally be used when you talk about obligation which is repeated: I HAVE TO BE AT SCHOOL AT EIGHT O’CLOCK EVERY DAY.
    Anyway, I’m not a native English speaker. I’m Italian but I think English is the most beautiful and useful language in the world.
    Good luck!

    Friday, September 30th 2011

Thankyou Mr.Alex

Wednesday, June 16th 2010

i am not from an english country but now i am in australia ,so this lesson & also others are very helpful to improve myself in front of english people,thnx

Saturday, June 19th 2010

    You cannot use both in the same sentence. Look at one of the comments posted above to see my explanation.

    Friday, July 9th 2010

1) Are you under5standing me. ( wrong )
*) Do u understand me. ( true )

plz tell me early about that.
thank you

Tuesday, June 29th 2010

    Hi Sami
    some words are in English that we call them “state verbs” and they can’t be usually progressive. They mostly are used in simple forms.

    Wednesday, September 8th 2010

thank you , i wand understand english

Thursday, July 1st 2010

Hi Alex. in the fourth sentence it says: “You and I ________ make it to school on time!” and I got the right answer, but I believe it should say: “You and me ________ make it to school on time!”, please correct me if I’m wrong.

Monday, July 5th 2010

Thursday, July 15th 2010

Hi Alex!I’ve important question about “when we use -have to-and-must-.I’ve read,that we use: have to-when the necessity authorization from another person to us.For example:”I HAVE TO go and talk to her”I mean,”SHE” decide that i must go and talk to her.And,when i say”I MUST go and talk to her”hear i mean,”I” decide to go to her-is it correct defination?

Sunday, July 18th 2010

Great Alex!Ycu do teach very well and your pronunciation is clear as bell. Thus,we foreigners really appreciate very much your very useful explanations. Ilive in Brazil and Eng Vid has been watched and praised in my city(S.José dos Campos).

    Sunday, March 20th 2011

thanks for your lessons

Wednesday, August 4th 2010

Dear Alex, I find your lessons very useful. I just wonder, speaking of necessity, is there any difference between these two and need. For example, is there any difference between:
“You need not come if you are busy” and “You don’t have to come if you are busy”

Sunday, August 8th 2010

Yeah good lesson.It makes me more confindent after watching your videos.Hats off!!!Thanks.

Monday, August 9th 2010

Hi Alex, i would like to you explain the different use of Very. Too and So. I still confused to use this words. Thanks.

Tuesday, August 10th 2010

Thank you Alex for helping us to understand better these modal verbs.

Tuesday, August 10th 2010

Thank you sir. it was good and helpfull.

Thursday, August 19th 2010

what about “need(or needn’t)” as a modal?
Do you also use this when you show necessity of something?

Sunday, August 29th 2010


Sunday, August 29th 2010

can i say (Ilave been living here 7 mounths

Sunday, August 29th 2010

Hi, Alex!
I passed this test. I have one mistake.
Why we can not say : She have to call after 10 pm.
Thank you:)

Sunday, September 5th 2010

    Hi Olga!
    I passed the test, I had no mistake. I can answer your question.
    Becuase we use “has” instead of “have” in singular third person

    Wednesday, September 8th 2010

    Hi Olga,
    simply, after She you must use has and not have. She has to call his parents for example.

    Thursday, January 20th 2011

very nice have a good day

Wednesday, September 8th 2010

Hi Alex,

i’m an English teacher myself and i like your video lessons a lot.
I have a question regarding your lesson about ‘Necessity’.At uni i was taught that there’s a big difference between ‘must’ and ‘have to’. I was taught that ‘must’ is used when the authority comes from the speaker.For example:

You must drive carefully. ( I insist. )

We were told to use ‘have to’ when the authority comes from outside the speaker. For example:

You have to drive on the left in Britain. ( That is the law. )

What you say in this video (the only difference between ‘must’ and ‘have to’ is in the level of formality) was never mentioned by my tutors.

Did my uni professors get into too much unnecessary detail? :)

Thanks a lot.

Warm regards from Slovenia,


Thursday, September 16th 2010

    HI Tanja B.
    you can’t say “You have to drive on the left in Britain” because it’s not a choise or option. You have bad consequences if you don’t do it so you have to use “Must”.
    My respects.

    Thursday, January 20th 2011

this is really useful sir. thanks a lot for this video…

Saturday, September 25th 2010

thanx Alex ! you’re going very well , will u plz add one thing , where i can use ( come ) ?
as like come to know ,,,,,,,ETC…,

Thursday, December 16th 2010


Thanks alot for this lesson.

In case of have we are using

” I have to go home ” – no ‘to’ after go.

but in case of negative ” I don’t have to go to school ” – here we are using ‘to’ after go.

Can you please explain why ?

Wednesday, December 29th 2010

    Hi Krishna,

    In English, the word “home” is a big exception. It does not need the preposition “to” before it in sentences like you mentioned above.

    “I am going to school/the library” are both okay, but “I am going to home” is incorrect.

    Simply put, it is an exception. I hope this helps!

    Sunday, January 9th 2011

      sorry ,alex could you explain me if
      I am going to school is right ..then why this one is incorrect ….I am going to home …& how we can in right sentence..thanx

      Sunday, April 3rd 2011

Tuesday, January 4th 2011

hi ,, I am a new student in your web ,, I am glade to join you all guys ,, thank you teachers for those useful lessons ,, I am from kurdistan/Iraq ::
I wonder if I use ” use to ” in place ” have to ” does it make a sense ..thanx again ,,

Monday, January 10th 2011

    Welcome to the website, faro.

    “Used to” and “have to” are very different. “Used to” is for talking about habits, ownership, locations, or states that existed in the past.

    “I used to be a doctor.”
    “I used to play tennis in high school.”
    “I used to live in South Korea.”
    “I used to have a goldfish.”

    “Have to” is used for necessity, as it is mentioned in this lesson.

    I hope this helps!

    Monday, January 10th 2011

thank u very much..:)

Thursday, February 3rd 2011

thank u..:)

Wednesday, February 9th 2011

hello..!! this website is very helpful to me.. specially to my career.. thank so much!!!

Friday, February 11th 2011

Thanks Alex for your lesson. Could you explain please! We must use the word ‘yet’ only in negative sentences. Is it right?

Friday, February 11th 2011

    You can use “yet” in questions and negative sentences. You are correct.

    Sunday, April 17th 2011

Can I use “you must have to do this” at the same time?

Sunday, March 6th 2011

    No, you can’t. You must use one or the other.

    Sunday, April 17th 2011

It was very useful for me. thanks

Wednesday, March 9th 2011

It was very useful,thanks

Wednesday, March 9th 2011

Hi Alex your lesson is very important to me because I have learn a lot of confusing grammar. But please allow me to ask you more questions.
Can you make a lessons If how to correct use of words PERHAPS, MAYBE…. your response is highly appreciated.. a million thanks to you… REYNALDO

Monday, March 21st 2011

    Hi Reynaldo,

    Both words have the same meaning. The difference is that “perhaps” is more formal, and “maybe” is more informal and casual. Basically, “perhaps” is more useful for writing, while “maybe” is more useful for conversation.

    I hope this helps!

    Sunday, April 17th 2011

why can’t we use must in future or past?

Tuesday, April 5th 2011

    The only way to use “must” in the past is if you use “must have,” but that is for past speculation. Otherwise, you can not use it for past necessity. Remember, when you talk about necessity in the present, like if you say “You must see this movie,” you are giving the advice in the present, but it is actually for the future. A person can not see the movie directly at the moment of speaking.

    I hope this has been useful!

    Sunday, April 17th 2011

      Hi Alex,
      can we say, ” you must have done something wrong otherwise this won’t happen”

      Many thanks

      Monday, February 6th 2012

please , i wanna make sure that we can’t use have got to in the question , we only use have to .
Is that right ? (please answer me)

Monday, April 11th 2011

    You can use both in questions, but “have got to” is not really used in yes/no questions.

    “What do you have to do tomorrow?”
    “What have you got to do tomorrow?”

    Both are okay, although the first one is more common.

    “Do we have to come early?” (this is okay)
    “Have we got to come early?” (not common at all)

    My advice: if you’re not sure which one to use, just stick to “have to” for most questions.

    Sunday, April 17th 2011

Do you have any lesson for “have been” , “had been”? I have some problem on it.
ENGVID is very helpful.. Thank you very much you all.

Hi Alex, the lesson was helpful for me. But I wanna ask you, can I use “I got to(gotta)” instead “I have got to”? Is it allowed in the conversation speaking?

Friday, August 3rd 2012

Hi alex, Thank you. You are great.

Thursday, August 9th 2012

nice but Little bit confused

Wednesday, August 29th 2012

I have a very big question.
Is it right to say ” I have to have it ( the book) “

Wednesday, September 19th 2012

Hello Alex
thanks for nice explanation .I have a question regarding the use of (have to) in past sentence.
can I say I HAVE TO HAD THAT.I AM CONFUSE BECAUSE according to my knowledge we must use first form of verb after to.

Wednesday, October 17th 2012

Dear teacher, If I understand, in the form “have got to”, got is used only in affermative sentences. For exmple I can say “Do you have to go to school?”, but I don’t say “Do you have got to school” or “I don’t have to go to school”, but not “I don’t got to go to school! It’s correct!?Thank you

Wednesday, October 24th 2012

    The negative form is “you don’t have to,” which means you have a choice.

Hi Alex,
I like too much your lessons. So I just wanna ask you a question regarding the difference between Verb to do vs to make.
Please can you explain me how and where to use these two verbs?

Sunday, December 30th 2012

Dear Alex,
Great lesson! What about shouldn’t and musn’t? Example: My manager says we…. tke more then ten minutes for our break and, if we do, he will make us work extra hours.
I suppose it is mustn’t because you’ve explained that must goes with “if X…. then negative consequences”, but still I am not sure.

Thursday, February 14th 2013

Hello Alex-

Is there are difference in the degree of necessity between have got to and have to? Is one stronger than another? Thanks so much.

Monday, June 10th 2013

Thanks Alex!. Please let me know if I can use ‘since’ to give the meaning of ‘as’. Like, ” I can attend the function since I will be free on that day”. Is it correct?

Saturday, June 22nd 2013


I have to go home or I must go home.


Friday, July 5th 2013

Thanks Alex… It was interesting. I still looking for MUST vs MUST TO. Please tell me where to find it.

Friday, July 26th 2013

    AFAIK there is no such thing as ‘must to’. As well as ‘can to’.

hey Alex thanks for teachingو You are a great teacher.

Monday, August 27th 2018

so we can say : i mustn`t weak up early on weekend .what about the question with must?

Sunday, October 28th 2018

Thank you. Maybe a little offtopic, but what about ‘to be to ..’? Can it be used to express obligation or necessity (like ‘I am to go right now’)? I can swear, I’ve seen this in some texts, but I cannot find any explanations.

Saturday, November 16th 2019

Thank you Mr. Alex. One must be careful while doing exercises.
