hi alex I’m a student of english and I want to improve my speaking of english so how can I do this?

simou380

    Just remember:
    ” The more Listening,the better Speaking “.
    P.S. Of course,Repeatable n Understandable Listening!
    Have fun.

    fatiima8

      thank you but what do you mean by P.S and n?

      simou

        P.S. is an abbreviation meaning “also”. N is a often used short way of saying “and”. Hope this helps.

        Saras

Thanks

Thank You for this lesson. Best wishes from country where You were born :-)

Hi Alex :)
I notice you pronounce “the” sometime like “ze” and sometime like” tha”,so what is the difference?

khalidindo

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your lesson

rampek

thank you Alex

fadhila

Thanks Alex and Happy New Year!

We need comprehensive explanation about “the”, apparently where to you and where not to use.

If you ask me what is blocking you to feel confident in English. I would say the use of “the”. If I’m 100% clear about use of the I would say I’m 98% confident in English.

So, Please Alex and team help us to understand thoroughly the use of “the” . I hope other students around the world will agree with me.

Thanks.

Hi, Alex!
Thanks a lot for your lessons!
But Europe is not a continent, it’s a part of world. Eurasia is continent :)

Dmitry

    P.S. And Asia is not a continent too :)

    Dmitry

    Even though it’s the same land, Europe is treated as its own continent, politically and linguistically. The dividing line (as you probably know) is the Ural Mountains.

hi teacher .sorry I have a query if you don’t mind …we say
to encourage or to encouraging
Is there really a difference between them ?
“to”  Working with the verb infinitive
or
“to” prepositions, which works for the gerund
ــــــــــــــــــــــــــ
to motivate and encourage them

or
to motivated and encouraging them
and thanks a lot

Matilda03

Hi! Thanks for posting it. I do appreciate when people take time and make effort to help others learn a language.

Two comments from me:
– islands – the Philippines, the Bahamas have ‘the’ because they are grammatically plural, so the rule is quite consistent
– saying wrong examples (mistakes) out loud causes some confusion for the brain – people might think -‘oh, I’ve heard it on the website, so it must me correct’, so I wouldn’t recommend it (the Asia)! That’s all for now. Keep up the good work!! :)

Why we don’t use USA rather than the USA?

LeTranBaoKhoa

Hi Alex you guys are doing wonderful job. My sense is that we used the when we want to create and distiguish object. However, in case of unquie thing the same is not required eg nigira fall which unquie a creation of nature need no distinction however man made objects like statue of liberty need one.
Thanks for everything.God bless your entire team.
