    I dreamed with u Mr/Alex 2day

    Tuesday, March 28th 2017

      I hope I was kind!

      Friday, March 31st 2017

        Sure
        Definitely

        Friday, March 31st 2017

        What does he like?

        Correction for no.1 question. Isn’t that?

        Friday, April 7th 2017

Hi, Alex!
Just decided to have the test and, consequently, I have only one mistake as a result. And guess where? “we decided not to [do something]”. Is it supposed to be a correct answer? I’ve always known that it is wrong to put “no” before “to”. But excluding the wrong anwers, I’ve come to another anwer which looked more correct (If i’m not mistaken, it was “We decided not [doing smth]”)

    Hello guys. How’s every thing going?
    Are you Ok?
    Well I hope you’re Ok, but I don’t feel very well anymore.
    You know, my mother is so sick. My family and I don’t know what should we do. Please pray for her.
    I’m the first child in my family, and I have a little brother, he is so dependent on my mother. I try to make him calm but I’m not successful. Now I’m responsible for my father, my brother and also our house. Maybe, I will never visit Engvid again. But I want you pray for my life; my mother.
    Good buy everyone.

    Wednesday, March 29th 2017

      Good buy Nataanna,SKIKDA, kotoz and all engvid’s friends.

      Wednesday, March 29th 2017

        what’s going on? what are you talking about? stop spamming

        Wednesday, March 29th 2017

        Sorry good bye not buy.
        I’m not spamming. It is real. I just wanted to share my inquietude with Engvid’s buddies. That’s it. Be sure I’ll never visit here again.

        Wednesday, March 29th 2017

          thx

          Wednesday, March 29th 2017

        Thursday, March 30th 2017

      I’m so sorry to hear that, nkh. Best wishes for you and your family. We’ll still be here if you decide to come back.

      Wednesday, March 29th 2017

        Could you please delete this comment branch? Do not accept it offensively, but this religious crap is starting to irritate me ^^ And one more thing is that it’s impossible to find my thought here.

        Thursday, March 30th 2017

      God bless you and your famyli, hope everything is ok

      Friday, March 31st 2017

      Dear nkh, I’m so upset about your mother and your leaving the EngVid. I missed your sad news. When I were looking for you, the Moderator gave me the link to your farewell message. I feel very very sorry for not noticing it. I hope you will get my message. I wish you to be strong. I’m too proud being friends with you. Maybe we can chat some time later, when you have time and energy for it.
      I will pray for your mom. Stay as positive as you are. May peace and health come into your house. I will miss you. Natalya Kostova from Russia.

    “Not to do” something is the negative of “to do” something.

    He told me NOT to go.
    They were hoping NOT to pay the entry fee.

    Friday, March 31st 2017

      First of all is that I posted my comment in a wrong lesson (it was opened in a wrong tab), and the second is that I want to thank you for the answer :)
      I’ve confused it with another rule where we put “not” before gerund (:

      Friday, March 31st 2017

It was suuposed to be a comment to https://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-5-ways-to-use-infinitives , sorry for the confusing comment

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Une petite révision, cela ne fait pas de mal !
Meci Alex.

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

    Derien! Merci pour votre aide.

    Friday, March 31st 2017

Good job, Alex! As always ;) Keep it up!
I’m Eric from Ukraine, btw )

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

    Thanks for your support, Eric. It’s always nice to see people from different parts of the world commenting here.

    Friday, March 31st 2017

Thanks Alex

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Thanks teacher

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Thanks Alex

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Thank you, Sir Alex….
that was a great and helpful lesson about common ‘What’ questions.

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

SIR ALEX PLEASE DO A LESSON OF INFINITIVE,GERUND AND PARTICIPLE.I AM VERY CONFUSE THIS LESSON.

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Thank you, Alex….

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Hi, thanks for the lesson. I have a question, could you exlain me please when I use the verb to be and when the auxiliar do/does with the question “what”? Thank again

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

    Hi Vexio, you use the verb DO when you’re making questions with the present simple.

    Where do you work?
    What do you do?
    When do you wake up?

    The question structure here is:

    Question word + DO + subject + base verb

    You use DOES with the third person…he/she/it…in present simple questions.

    Where does she go to school?
    How does he know that?
    Why does it matter?

    Friday, March 31st 2017

      Thanks teacher for your answer. It helps me to understand the use of the auxiliar verb: do. Is the same for the past, Isn´t correct?(Example: Where did you work?). In sume, “to be” is just for continuous form and do for simple form? That is the main difference? Thank´s again!!!

      Monday, April 3rd 2017

Great explanation, Alex. I’m happy I took the quiz and I got 100. By the way, I recognized Steve. He was the guy who said “What” at the beginning of the video lesson. Very funny! Thanks again. See you in your next video lesson. Goodbye! Take care!

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

    Thanks, Julio Cesar. Steve is always around somewhere. He’s like Waldo.

    Friday, March 31st 2017

Great lesson! I would really like you to cover “perfect tenses” on next videos. Would you? I really need to improve my understanding on it! thanks!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

    Hi Juan Pablo, we have a lot of lessons on the perfect tenses. Just use the search function at the top of the page. Maybe I’ll do a new one in the future.

    Friday, March 31st 2017

Thank you, Alex!

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Thank you for your explenation, I anderstand very well

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

    No problem. Thanks for your continued support, SKIKDA.

    Friday, March 31st 2017

“WH-“questions! Nice lesson!
Thanks, Alex.

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

It’s a good idea to learn English using puppets or marionettes because you remember when you was a child and you learned with tenderness, innocence and careless, furthermore, when you use this system carefully I think you learn how when you tell stories that motivate your mind and you will always bear in mind. Thanks a lot, teacher Alex, 100 our goal and I have got it, it has been a good explanation.

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

    Thanks for your thoughtful feedback, angardiobel. I’m glad you enjoyed the toys!

    Friday, March 31st 2017

6. A: “What’s up?”
B: “_________”
Fine, thanks. You? (i press this)
Not much. You?
A direction. You?
“No, thanks.”

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Alex Thank you so much

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Thanks teacher, just one feedback keep aside of the board, your body is blocking the board (This is a class, not a comic show presentation where you stand in the middle); I like student like to take notes, save screens, look back previous notes you write, should be a column not two or smallers leaving a space for you at the right or left side of the board and you should take the right side or left, not in the middle, thanks like your innovative style(puppets idea).

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

    Good point. Thanks!

    Friday, March 31st 2017

What a great lesson! I like the way you teach, Alex, and I always try to put into practice what I learn from you and the other teachers. By the way, you scared the hell out of me by the end of the video. I was about to type and then… Jesus Christ! Although it was unexpected, it was good because it made my heart beat faster. Thanks for sharing and scaring. Take care.

Thursday, March 30th 2017

    Haha. This comment made my day. Sorry to scare you!

Thank you teacher!!

Saturday, April 1st 2017

    Hi, violetree. Very funny notice about Alex’s haircut. I watch videos of various years as well. Teachers looked different, especially Emma.
    It’s so interesting!

    Monday, April 10th 2017

      Hi Nataanna I agree with you,it’s always fun and interesting watching old videos from our teachers….Everyone changes and yes Emma has changed too ,of course , but Alex’s hair has changed much more suddenly and drastically than i could have expected..:-)
      The older you get the most quiet you become!

      Monday, April 10th 2017

        Sorry “the more quiet ” i meant
