The use of metaphores makes our English more colorful and natural. They make us sound a little bit more like English native speakers, don’t they?

Great video-lesson Gill.

Bye for now!

Thank you very much ,Gill.I like metaphors, they give some color to the speech.And the quiz is very interesting.

anahit15

Informative lesson Gill ! I have a question, at the end of the lesson you say “…you learn english as a second language…” Why do you say “a” before second ? I have always been taught to use “the” before second, third, fourth and so on.

SergeyIrk

    Hi SergeyIrk,
    notice the difference:
    a second language is another language, not yor mother language. You can have them several.
    But -you won the second prize.
    It is my opinion.

    emo53

      Yeah I got what you mean but the edge is still thin for me. Not really sure It is absolutely clear for me. So it is English : )

      SergeyIrk

        I am not sure myself, but the article “a” here is normally used before a noun followed by an adjective. So the noun is “language” and the adjective “second”. I think someone will give a suitable explanation of this.

TatianaL

Thank u Mrs Gill

Arlou22

Hi Gill, How are you?
I have difficulty with these following, hope you (or anybody) would describe them for me, I would be very thankful.

here the difference,
“I would like to HAVE HEARD her answer” and “I would like to hear her answer”

thank you

nayem

    Hi, Nayem! When you say “I would like to have heard her answer”, it means that you haven’t heard it and probably will never hear it at all. That’s a past situation. On the other hand, “I would like to hear her answer” means that you haven’t heard it yet but maybe you might hear it in future. That’s a present situation.
    However, I think we had better use the verb “to wish” in these cases. “I wish I have heard her” or “I wish I would hear her”. That sounds better. Bye!

    Eduardo França

Thank you Gill. it was a good lesson.

Hello, Gill! I am here again! Thank you for the lesson as usual. I have realized you like Shakespeare. I have read two of his plays: “A midsummer night’s dream” and “The taming of the shrew”. Though, my favourite British writer is Charles Dickens. Do you like him?

hello.
I am a Iranian student that love engvid educations a lot. and I am so grateful for your educations.
unfortunately because of some sanctions against Iran, displaying video has some problem and with using proxy, the problem will have gone.
we will be very thankfulness if your company remove that problem for us.
sincerely yours
amin

aminsaberian

    I am sorry, but there is nothing we can do about it. As far as I know, YouTube is blocked by the Iranian government, not international sanctions.

    engVid Moderator

      thank you for your answer.
      I did not know that your education videos are on youtube.
      have a nice time
      goodbye
