Hi! Alek
May I use “He’s starting annoying me!” because a verb that after start must be used “gerund”.

Profile photo of mahaviro mahaviro

    you should avoid repeating two gerunds. It is better to say : He is starting to annoy me

    Profile photo of joulethief89 joulethief89

    You’re also using the present continuous form of “start,” which you should follow with an infinitive.

Thank you so much Alex, the explanation was terrific as always!
A few days ago I made a couple of requests for a video about linking words, but I got no evidence that your saw them. I’m kindly ask you to comment, if you did.
I’m still looking forward to watching your video(s). As I previously wrote in other messages, that topic may be useful for almost all non-native speakers.
Thank you for your help in English acquisition one more time!

I still have a confuse with them i can not understand what is the different between them , thank you teacher .

Profile photo of hakok hakok

Thanks! I got only 70 but I understood my mistakes. Nice lesson!
Please, explain the difference between “each” and “every” if it exists.


Profile photo of kenzoll kenzoll

    Hey kenzoll, you ok? Hope so!

    “Each” and “every” mean the same thing and are considered singular nouns so they take singular verbs.

    (Note the singular verbs in the following examples.)

    If you want to get technical, you can use “each” to emphasize the individual items or people:

    #1.: Each car is carefully checked out.

    #2.: Inspectors scrutinize each egg to make sure it isn’t cracked.

    And you can use “every” to emphasize the larger group:

    #1.: Every car should use hybrid technology.

    #2.: The Egg Farmers of America want eggs on every table for breakfast.

    People often say “each and every” for emphasis, but it is redundant, and I almost always advise brevity when it comes to usage.

Hey Alex
I want to ask what “Plus” means ’cause sometimes English speakers say it on movies.I know that it has nothing to do with mathematics, I guess it’s just a way of saying…
And they also say I’m done, I’m gone, etc. what’s does it mean?

“I started to cry when Robb was killed”

Loved the reference to Game of thrones

Profile photo of Younes Younes

Thanks Alex
I have a question:
I started _______________ when Robb was killed.
to cry, crying, or both are okay
Is there difference in meaning between (to cry) and (crying?)
As Emma explained in her other video:

Hi Alex, I´m bit confused. It seems to me that when we have 02 verbs. The 1ª could be Past, and gerund and 2ª infinitive and gerund. How does it work, is there some rule for this ? If possible, can you make a lesson about 02 verbs together? bye

Hi, Alex!
Please, answer me about these pairs:
Can we use the “begin/finish” or “start/end” pairs to designate a beggining and an end of some process, work, competition and so on?

Profile photo of frarlley frarlley

Thank you so much! I just see your video yesterday. I subscribed after that immediately. I really like this web.
but I still have a question: what is difference between “started to work” and “started working” ? and we only use “start or begin” in present continuos tense and past simple tense?
Thank you so much!

Profile photo of Xuan Thanh Thanh Xuan Thanh Thanh

Alex, in the last step you’ve taught that when the begin/start is used as present continous is preferred to use the next verb with infinite form, ok, i got it, so, can I apply this “rule” for the other verbs from list of verbs followed by gerunds (44 verbs with exceptions)? Like verbs advise, can’t bear, continue, hate…?

Thanks Alex It was very usefull and helped me a lot

My answers were correct but I think a BUG happened! For example, I marked “To sing” option in the fourth question, but the correction told me that I marked the “both” option!
