Thanks Emma,you are so clear on your explanations. I would like that you make a lesson about the use of : that, at, in, by , in resume the right use of prepositions on senences and position of things. Thanks a lot, you are a great a teacher.

Friday, May 3rd 2013

I would like to ask a question,
“Looking forward to hear from you” and “Looking forward to hearing from you”.
Which sentence is correct,and why?
Thanks in advance.

Friday, May 3rd 2013


    Look forward to + v.ing

    So it would be look forward to hearing from you

    Tuesday, April 21st 2015

did it 100 %

Friday, May 3rd 2013

Thanks for the lesson Emma!!
I have a question:
Why in the last sentence do not use the preposition “with”. e.g.:
My cat would not stop meowing, so I tried feeding her “with” a different kind of cat food.

It´s great. I didn`t know this diference. Now I´ll try remembering it.

Sunday, May 5th 2013

wow.. thank you.. nice to know this rule .. :)

thank you very much .

Sunday, May 5th 2013

What if I use only “try to do”? I don’t remember if I’ve ever used “try doing”. xD

— try to give her flowers
— try to speak English whenever you can

Do this sound horrible or something?

Sunday, May 5th 2013

    Good question, Morfik! I wish Emma could give us an answer to this question…

    Sunday, May 5th 2013

    “Do this sound…” — Of course “does” not “do”, I was so tired. xD

    Monday, May 6th 2013

    let’s compare things, shall we?

    Morfik’s first sentence is:

    – Try to give her flowers (in the infinite form)*

    * it seems like you’d try to give her the flowers but it’s not sure you’ll succeed, it sounds like an attempt to give her flowers (you might not succeed) or maybe she’s a busy person and you couldn’t reach her!!!

    Morfik’s second sentence:

    – Try to speak English whenever you can**

    ** the same thing about the sentence above. Here it sounds like an attempt to speak because it might be a little difficult to do so, yet English isn’t difficult…

    Now pay close attention to this…

    – Try giving her flowers (you might succeed)
    – Try speaking English whenever you can (that’s a tip)

    These both sentences sound like advices in a polite way, it might also be new experience to do so.

    Hope it could help,

    Get to study, see ya’ll

    Wednesday, May 8th 2013

      thanks for teaching…

      is nice to talk with people all over the world and learning from them…

First and foremost, i have to say you are definitely my favorite teacher on Engvid, although and the others are very cool..
Thanks a lot, this kind of lessons is always useful.

Could you please tell me when we use in English “to”,and when “and” between two verbs, for example:
“Can you come and see me this afternoon?”
Is it also correct to say “Can you come to see me this afternoon”?
Thanks in advance.
Sorry but i really can’t resist to say at the end that you are so charming ;)

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

hello Emma, you are beautiful. I have a question, if something is difficult for me like eating food, I should say: I tried to eat healthy. But if eating healthy is not difficult to do it at least for me, then, I should say: I tried eating healthy. If this example is not correct then how I should say this statement? Thanks

Hi Emma how are u I’m so happy with ur lessons .please I want to chat with u can I !!!!!!!!!!!!

Sunday, November 3rd 2013

Thanks you…really help me

Tuesday, November 12th 2013

Hello Emma, How are you? I love your lessons but now I have a doubt, please correct me if I´m wrong…
So, you mean that the verbs that have the infinitive or gerund form can change the meaning of a sentence? and these verbs are: forget, go on, regret, remember, stop, and try? Are these the only ones, and what happen with the verbs such as: like, love, hate, start and so on, do these verbs change thier meaning too? Can they have two meanings? I´ll be waiting for your answer because I´m confused. Please if someone else wants to answer it would be wonderful, and thanks! :)

Wednesday, November 13th 2013

Hello Emma, Thanks for posting the videos. It is really good and useful, especially for the test takers like me. I have a question similar to this one. I think the words “select” and “choose” have the same meaning, or is it different in the usage as “tried to do and try doing” I would appreciate if you could clear this doubt for me. Thanks in advance.

Wednesday, November 20th 2013

Emma, could you please give me some example in question form?

Tuesday, November 26th 2013

Thank you so much.

I know that try to verb, try verb ing
, it’s a good teaching!

Tuesday, December 17th 2013

9/10. Number 9 is a bit tricky

Wednesday, January 1st 2014

Hello Emma,

Thank you for really teachable lesson.
If you don’t mind my asking I wonder if the rules of usage these two ways to say ”TRY” changes in future tenses? For example : I will try to answer all the question with assurance/ I will try answering all the questions with assurance. – Does still function the same rule? And which does suit more ‘to answer’ or ‘answering’?
Great thanks.

Friday, February 21st 2014

Tuesday, March 3rd 2015

I like a lot your classes. You are an excellent teacher. I like your pronunciation and the way you explain the topics.

By the way, how do I know when you upload a new lesson into the website http://www.engvid.com?

Tuesday, April 7th 2015

Adam explain that differently from you. Really is not that easy to understand some grammar rules. Are different explanations and they do not match.

For example: you said we can use ANY verb.
Rebecca said that ANY must be used in negative sentences and questions. For positive sentences just some.

Not easy cute teacher!

Saturday, May 2nd 2015

Ronnie explain that in a different form. OMG!

Thanks Emma. Although i’m not good in english, but i undestand you well

Wednesday, July 29th 2015

first of all, i love you and your way so much <3, but at the end of the video you said that " if you want to become a better English speaker i invite you to check! !
i think it's an advice of you to us and it's easy to do so why you didn't say ' i invite you checking our website !
i hope you would tell me, and thanks for this an amazing video <3

Wednesday, July 29th 2015

    I think that that the reason is there were no “try”. So she could say like: “If u want to become a better English speaker try checking our website”.

    Friday, July 31st 2015

That was really interesting and useful lesson! Thanks Emma !

Great! I love your lesson. I’m trying to be a nicer person but it’s hard. Wishing all the best.

Tuesday, March 28th 2017

Hi, just for clarification:
You have used past tense in every example with infinitive. I am therefore not sure if in the sentence below, would be possible to use/using the infinitive or NOT at all.
“If your girlfriend is angry at you, try to give her flowers.” ?
..is it incorrect, or it CAN be used with infinitive? just it is not so proper?

thank you

Saturday, April 15th 2017

in the quiz, last question:

My cat would not stop meowing, so I tried feeding her a different kind of cat food. (shouldn’t be there: “WITH a different kind of….” ??
could you explain why we skip this preposition?

Saturday, April 15th 2017

Your ability to make someone understand is wonderful. Before watching the video I would think that there was no difference between gerund and infinitive.
