Saturday, December 3rd 2011

Excellent James! Why is future perfect connected to the past? If I say I will have finished my hw by 8 PM. Does it mean I started studying before now? The way I feel, is that I might not even started working on the hw!! This really confuses me, since it’s nothing I’ve learnt, but I feel it’s that way. Thank you!!

Sunday, December 4th 2011

James, nice to meet you guy!
I have watched your classes and of another teacher s either. You are amazing, really very good teachers. I´m from Brazil but I´m not there because I’m working and studying in Chile.
Here I study translation from English to Spanish and it’s a very interesting challenge.
Well if I finish the school I’ll be able to speak 3 languages.
Thanks for your explanation. I hope someday to be in Canada to visit this beautiful country.


Sunday, December 4th 2011

Thank so much for your help, it is really important for me!!!

Sunday, December 4th 2011

Hello James,

I have a question in regard to using “have” in sentences like these:

1. You have to have it done for tomorrow.
2. We need to have our car repaired for Monday.
3. I think I should have the letter sent at the latest tomorrow morning.
4. They should have had it done two weeks ago.
5. I had to have it done for yesterday, while you still have plenty of time.

Are they (any of them) grammatically correct?

I would really appreciate your help.
Thanks :)

Sunday, December 4th 2011

    the frist you have tow event you should know it
    1-present perfect .
    2-present simple .
    these senteces are present simple
    because there rule say
    sub+have /has +obj+p.p
    for example
    I have my car fixed
    thiss means i pay money to some one to fixed my car .
    not me that fixed my car
    and and the event is present simple .
    If i said
    I have fixed my car .
    that means i fixed my car not elst someone .
    and this event is present perfect
    thanks …

    Thursday, March 8th 2012

      Hi Hamed,
      You shouldn’t answer someone’s questions if you don’t even know what you are talking about… What you wrote is really chaotic and does not explain anything…

      Wednesday, June 11th 2014

    Cześć Bracie ;).
    Widzę, że James nie odpisał, więc mogę napisać odpowiedź, mam doświadczenie z j. angielskim.

    1. OK – może dziwnie brzmieć z tym podwójnym have, ale możesz ew. napisać “You should have it done…”
    2. OK
    3. OK, tylko zamienić miejscami wyrażenia – “at the latest” zwykle daje się na końcu zdania. Więc: I think I should have the letter sent tomorrow morning at the latest.
    4. OK
    5. Tutaj zdanie jest niezrozumiałe. Yesterday jest pomieszane z teraźniejszością – you still have. Może chodziło Ci o: I should have had it done yesterday, when you still had plenty of time.

    Ogólnie w tych przykładach występuje “have something done” – czyli oddajesz jakąś czynność komuś innemu, aby za ciebie ją zrobił.

    Pozdrowienia :)

    Wednesday, June 11th 2014

Thursday, January 19th 2012

James can you tell me what the different betwen has and have? please :)
thank you in advance

Thursday, January 19th 2012

    “Has” means the same as “have”. The only difference is that you have to use the right form according to the subject of the sentece – the person.

    I – have
    You – have
    He, she, it – has

    We – have
    They – have
    You (plural) – have

    Hope I helped you. ;)

Monday, May 16th 2016

Great, i’ve got 100%. Good explanation teacher.

Thursday, May 26th 2016

nice video but sound is not so good it seems to be in a mine or in an empty room

Wednesday, June 1st 2016


Sunday, June 12th 2016

Then “have” means “connection” and his 5 main features would be: Action, Possession, Necessity of modals, modals with the past and Perfect Tenses. We have learnt how to use these features and now we have a little more reported about “to have”. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from EngVid, enjoying to learn more concepts of English.
