    To talk about pains and aches we also use the word PAIN -of course, apart from the words seen in the lesson: hurt and ache)- for example “I had a sharp pain in my back”.

    Excellent lesson Alex!

Mr Alex…what about the word ‘ pain’, sometimes we use it eg back pain, neck pain etc…when we should use it..tq


    Hi saedon,

    You are correct. You can also say that “I have a pain in my arm,” or “I have a pain in my back.” The type of pain you feel is different from an ache, though.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

hi alex
i could not come cos i had headache (past)
i can not come cos i have headache (future)
is it correct?

Profile photo of ramzan ramzan

    Hi ramzan,

    “I could not come because I had a headache” for the past.

    “I can’t come because I have a headache” for the future.

    Thanks for your question.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

hi alex
(he was bored in the class)

can we use second form of the verb aftar was and were

Profile photo of ramzan ramzan

    Hi ramzan,

    I’m not sure that I understand your question. However, the sentence you posted is correct.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

    Maybe I can understand your question :))
    Look !! You didn’t use the second form after was you put an adjective !!but you can use (was/were+2nd form) in the passive “past simple in passive ”
    Is that right Mr Alex ???


Very helpful vocabulary when you are sick and need to explain symptoms. Thanks!

Profile photo of gan830509 gan830509

Thanks for the lesson…..
So far we have studied structures such as “My head hurts” or “I have a headache” but what happens when the subject of the sentence is plural? For example they?… Do I have to say “they have a headache” or “they have headaches?”

Thanks a lot..


    They have headache.
