merci beaucoup MR JON

    Hello there. I have read in a grammar book I purchased that subjunctive mood should be used in condition of uncertainty. Example. If she have the money, she will make it in the city.
    I used to use has for the third person. I would like to clarify this, because there are some English novels which use has instead of have. :)

    Friday, February 22nd 2013

      I agree with you, the must identify it as soon as possible
      because we are looking for answer.

    Interesting lesson Jon!!!

    I think it is important to make a distinction between adverbs and adjectives so that we can use these words properly.

    I do like your teaching style Jon. It is too bad you have not made more videos recently.

    All my best to you!!!

    Saturday, April 26th 2014

Dear Jon:
You´re the real McCoy of a clown. Pretty funny indeed. It would be wonderful to have you here in Brazil to teach English to some of my students. They have been watching some of your zestfully videos and learning the Universal language with joy and laugher. Keep behaving yourself in such a delightful and loving fashion. Respectfully – André.

Saturday, October 13th 2012

wow!!! You are very soon . the doctor not here?!
that is new info thxxx Jon :))

Saturday, October 13th 2012

Thank you for this lesson I have made a test and I would like you to clarify why I can’t say: Slow down! You are driving too quickly.

Saturday, October 13th 2012

    Hi ! I think the reason is because you drive the car which behaves fast. Fast is more often applied to the person or thing in motion, Quickly most often applies to action that takes little time or to what is prompt.

    I hope I could help,

    Thursday, January 10th 2013

Saturday, November 17th 2012

Thanks a lot for this great lesson.
May you help me in these two questions:
1) in the 7th question in the quiz:
“I’ll be ready to leave ________”
soon , yesterday, quickly
I did not understand why we can not use ‘quickly’ here.
2) what are the differences between: fast/rapid/quick, can we use any of them in the place of the others any time?
thanks a lot

Sunday, November 18th 2012

are you addicted?

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

Great lesson.

May I ask you a question teacher? Are you american? This isn’t a big deal, just curiosity, I liked your accent.

Monday, December 3rd 2012

I’ve recently found here and i think it can help me learn english . thanks

Thursday, December 27th 2012

Great lesson! Being so, we will learn quickly!

Thursday, January 3rd 2013


Friday, January 4th 2013

The way I understood:
soon = we won’t have to wait much.
early = beginning of a given time
quickly = fast is more often applied to the person or thing in motion, Quickly most often applies to action that takes little time.
Hope it’s of some help.

Friday, September 23rd 2016

I wonder that anyone knows the answer of the quiz no.9 is fast?? I chose “quickly” for my answer. I have searched the internet for information. And I got that the term “drive too fast” is used more often. But, in grammatically, “fast” and “quickly” can be used with “too”. Is the crux of this problem just “more often”?
I’ll be appreciated for your help:)
