thx alex thats good

najib nino

    You’re welcome.

    Alex

      Alex,can you help me with these questions?
      What are you saying? and what you are saying?.
      Are they both correct?.

      rini1891

        I have wondered that!!

        uinxsa

        I’m not a native, but I can help you with what I’ve seen so far about this.

        Grammatically talking, the first one seems to be the only correct because the necessary inverted position of the verb to be, which is such obligation in questions.
        But we see a lot of people questioning without the proper position of subject and verb to be, right? I think that this kinda conversation is real informal, pretty common but, again, grammatically talking: incorrect.

        Despite all that, when we use what, who, which, even in informal conversations, I’ve seen that everybody is still using the correct way: What are you saying? Mainly because when you speak it, you can link those words: What’re you saying?

        In a even more informal way, they might drop the verb to be, in this case “are” and only say: “What you saying”, and linking the words, it’ll sound like: “Whatcha saying”.

        I hope it can help you.

I was confused a little because I haven’t used “make out.” But I got 8 correct out of 10. Good for me :)
I was surprised “make out” had 7 meanings but if I would be able to use them, “make out” is useful, isn’t it. Thank you for your great lesson, Alex :)

Happy04

    No problem.

    Alex

hey there , how are you today Moderator ? .. I`m fine ..Well most people are invited for interview to get a job after they succeeded passing related company`s paper exam . Hmmm… I`ve gotta suggestion about making a video involving two of your good teachers,sitting in front of one another , one plays the role of interviewer who asks most common questions and the other plays the role of interviewee who tries to find a position in a company or organization through a real interview and answers questions (then,common mistakes could be corrected after the conversation by Rebbeca or someone else) .Questions are different but Common questions are possible to ask in that video .I hope your attention toward my opinion is positive and please share it with your good teachers if possible .Many of us need to know how to treat,answer and ask questions in a typical interview.How about that ?

Hello Alex.
I am absolutely appreciating for you. Yours all English lesson are very clearly to study but I don’t understand some of lesson that depends on my level of English.

So I have question for you. Some English word very difficult to say, particular the pronunciation and different meaning for example. (I have some sentence related the those word). 1)The bandage was wound around the wound. 2) the farm was used to produce produce. 3) we must polish the polish furniture as well as so many words in English. If you have time, could you explain to me this situation.

Cheers.

Hi Alex;-)
Thanks a lot, I got 10/10 ;-). You help me to make that phrasal verb out. You are genius;-)
I’m looking forward to more ;)

anina

Hello Alex
I had no idea that there were so many meanings “TO MAKE OUT”, I thank you for teaching me new things in an understandable way and you help me to progress in my goal of learning more and more English.
A big hug from Barcelona.

esther1

    I’m happy to hear that you’re progressing.

    Alex

Hello.Alex
I have some question unanswered in mind
1) What does language mean to you?
2) How can student articulate their thinking in writing?
3) What is the difference between language and speech?
4) What is PLS or pictological system?
5) I have heard that we have some formula to creat iiregular verbs in English I want know how a verb changes to be an irregular one.
Thanks in advance.

123456mehdi

    I wonder why your questions don’t have answers in your own language and what English has to do with it, but OK:
    1) Language is a cultural system that permits individuals to express themselves and communicate with each other within that cultural system.
    2) This process is called cultural adaptation, you have to change (adapt) the (cultural) system you use for thinking to the system you use for writing.
    3) Language is a cultural system, speech is a sequence of items (generally spoken words) that convey a meaning in a particular cultural system.
    4) Maybe you mean pictorial system: the items of this system are pictures.
    5) There is no ‘formula’, it’s the usage of a language that makes it evolve.

Thank you so much Mr. Alex. It’s really nice and useful lesson. Also I wanted to thank you for your previous lesson or the Academic World List.

flavinhoh

Phrasal verbs always give real headaches to students specially those with different meanings like the one taught in this lesson.
Practice makes perfect, that is the only way to master them.
You were clear concise and to the point, as usuall Alex. Thanks for this video-lesson.

Regino

    No problem.

    Alex

Very interesting and useful lesson on “make out”. But I’ve got confused with question 6: What does “B. Andicoot” mean?

omargut

    I suppose it is something like a signature.

    dedmoroz

I can’t make out what “It is gross” means. Even after the looking up it in the dictionary. It is the cause why I have got 9 of 10. Can anyone explain me? Thanks a lot!

dedmoroz

    In this case I think it means “It is disgusting”

Hi Alex! :)

Does your English name Alex come from Polish Aleksander (Olek)? :) You’ve mentioned you come from Poland, that’s why I was curious about that.

Do you and your family visit relatives in Poland? :))

Evans12

Thank you so much. your lession is very useful for me and people studying English as a second language.

catherine78

Hi, Alex! Thank you for a really useful lesson! In the test there was a sentence “It’s gross”. Does it mean “It’s vulgar” or what? I have also got a question about using passive with such constuctions as “make an appointment”, “do a favour”, etc. Can we say “she was made an appointment at 3pm” meaning her potential employer invited her to an interview?
Thanx in advance!
Hugs from Russia!

Galina from Russia

    Hi Galina, well as you may know, “gross” has several meanings. As an adjective it means very rude/umpleasant, among some others.
    As for the word “appointment”, you can say. . . she HAS an appointment WITH Mr. X at 3 p.m. If she HAD the interview, then we can say that she KEPT the appointment or HAD a job interview with . . .
    Hope this may help.
    Regards

Lorena Kelly

Alex many thanks for the lesson!!
I didn’t know that “make out” has so many different meanings, so now I’ll try to put this phrasal verb in use in my routine conversations. If you meet me in the future don’t forget to ask me “how is your English making out!!”

Joao Batista Jr

I forgot the signal “?” in the previous commentary hehehe… but I scored 10/10. I guess that it was possible because of Alex explanation, and it is always clear to me!

Best regards!

Joao Batista Jr

Hello Alex

First of all, thank you for teaching me :) All videos are helping me a lot!
Anyway, would you don’t mind if I ask is English subscript correct? Because unfortunately, Korean subscript is not correct. :( I try to develop my grammar so I read English subscript after listening enough. If it is correct, I don’t care about Korean subscript :)

roseme

Thank you for teaching me and helping me a lot.
I will trying to learning.

noylawan24

I’ve got perfect score,and I understood the lesson, but could you please check if these sentences are correct.

I’m married to my husband for nearly three years now, but I can’t make him out.

What you do is making out like you know everything when you don’t.

My classmates and I can’t really make out of his lessons.

I just like to know, if I’m using the phrasal verb “make out” right.

Bel Linwood

it’s a good English lesson. 10Q alex i got 8 out of 10

shanko

Hi Alex. I have a question about the first meaning of MAKE OUT you wrote on the board. Does it generally mean UNDERSTAND, too? Can I use it when one of my students isn’t very clear in his speaking? I mean, even if I can see and hear him clearly but his speech is a kind of muddled and confused because of mistakes in the language?
Thanks a lot.

Olimilla

    I think that’s only about the ability of seeing or hearing something properly.
