who, and when do we use
whom? In this English grammar lesson, I will explain the difference between these two relative pronouns and when you should use them. It doesn’t matter if you’re a new English learner or a native English speaker – if you’re not sure whether to use
whom, I hope that this lesson will erase your doubts. It’s much easier than you think.
THANK YOU SO MUCH MR/ALEX
You are the teacher who teach us easily
It’s a very dificult tpoic hahahaha ! but it’s good to practice whit it . thank you
study or die.
Awesome teacher…thank you very much !!!
Hello Alex, this was the first lesson that I take where you are the teacher, and I have to say it, you resolved one of my biggest doubt in english, thanks, I will watch more of your lessons, greetings from Venezuela
That’s awesome. Thanks for checking out the lesson, Arnaldo!
Hello dear Alex. You Know, I’ve not been here for a long time, but when I got back, I started watching engvid with your new lesson. I appreciate you for such a good lesson. Actually I never had a problem with this subject because as you said_before watching your training video_ I always tried to use WHO in my conversations and all of my conversations had been great even without using WHOM!!!
But now, after learning the rule, I’m more desirous to use it. Thank you again and nice teaching.
Hello nkh! You are the person whom I’m happy to see again. (a little bit redundant sentence on my opinion, but it fits the topic). I hope you can afford to continue your education (on the site as well). This way (knowing English) you will have more opportunities to support your family.
Hi alex..Thank you very much for getting clarity where to use relative pronouns who and whom.Fantastic. i subscribed your channel.I want to write IELTS.i want to connect you through whats app or Twitter.Please help me.
Thank you Mr. Alex, I like your class because it is very structured and clear.
You are very clear. I like your lesson.
Greeting from Italy
can you teach Italian?
Yes. I can.
Hello dear Nataanna.
Yes, I’m here again. I left a comment in the Emma’s latest lesson and I declared why I got back. If you like, check it please.
You know, when I see your comments, I get an unbelievable feeling , your words is so similar to my mother’s words. You know, besides my mom, you encourage me and make me more eager for my life and future. Thanks for your comments and I wish you health and a perfect life with your family. Be sure I never quit studying and learning english.
Thanks for the lesson. Earlier I was very confused between who and whom but today my concept is clear.
You are an excellent teacher. It was very clear. Greeting from Yemen.
Good jog as always, Alex!
I know a teacher who is really great. His name is Alex.
Just an example more to illustrate the lesson:
1. Do you remember the name of the man who sold you the car???—>You are the buyer of the car.
2. Do you remember the name of the man who you sold the car to???///Do you remember the name of the man to whom you sold the car???—>You are the seller of the car.
In number 2 you can exchange who…to with whom, is that right???
Thanks a lot!!
Hi Knopfler , hi everybody .
I think you would say :
#1 do you remember the name of the man who sold the car to you .
#2 do you remember the name of the man whom you sold the car
I think you can say ” do you remember the name of man you sold the car”
“To whom with” sounds not very good English to me .
Maybe you can say : do you remember the name of the man whom you made a sale of your car with
Hope I am right . See what Alex will answer
Hi tsamp!!Thanks for the replay ;)
Maybe I don´t explain myself properly. I was asking if it´s possible to say either “who….to” OR “whom” with the same meaning, NOT “to whom with”. Just to make it easier:
1. Do you remember who sold you the car?
2. Do you remember who you sold the car to?? OR
Do you remember to whom you sold the car?
Maybe these examples are easier to understand.
ups, reply ;)
Hi knopfler86, I think grammatically correct will be: “Do you remember whom you sold your car to”. But as Alex has said the most natives might use “who”. And I quite agree with tsamp, they likely say “Do you remember the man you sold the car”.
I’m the one who eagers to Alex’s explanation as well. Thank him for useful tips.
This subject is so difficult, but you made it easier. Thanks!
I can understand it gramatically. However I don’t have much chance to hear the word ‘whom’ in the conversation. I just may not be able to catch the word,though. It sometimes confuses me when the word ‘whom’ and ‘who’ are omitted in the sentence.
Wohoo i got 100% ☺ .Thanks alex and by the way you are looking so decent on coat. ?
Hi my self-sacrificing teacher, your lesson is very clear to understand. But there is my 1 wrong at the quiz : ________ did you speak to? then i understand this part :( …
I liked this lesson very much. I understood all and got 100%.
Thank you, Alex, you explain very good, as usual.
No complex with Alex who has a unique way of explanation and male silvery voice that make all topics clear and enjoyable.
Teacher, what is the difference between “most of whom” and “most of them” ?
thank you so much Mr Alex, I’ve been benefiting from your courses.
may God bless you all.
my warm regards to you.
Hi Alex.. thank you..nice explanation..

Thanks alot, Alex. There are many Vietnamese people on the internet who adore you so much like me.
Hi Alex! Interesting lesson.Thanks! Now It’s clear for me the difference between who and whom. I did the quiz with one mistake. But it seems to me that is really difficult to decide when speaking when to use who or whom.
Bravo Alex! Happy Easter:)
Great class Alex. You are the teacher who teaches English very clear.
Thank you ☺
Thanks for very useful lesson. By the way Alex, do you still remember Polish?
Thank you so much, it helped me so much :)

Nice uniform, Sir!
Thank you Alex, I’ve been waiting such a lesson for a long time.
6 out of 10. Thank you!
i will push harder learn English.
Hi Alex, very clear explanations.
Thanks a lot.
We have been learning in this lesson subject and object relative pronouns, “who” and “whom”, it hasn’t been difficult to understand teacher Alex, but it has been a little more difficult to do the questionary, especially when the object relative pronoun “whom” is mixed with the quantifier rule or form of “quantifier+of+whom”. I forgot this rule for a moment, despite it understood teacher Alex explanation, but sometimes fail the memory. We shouldn’t forget that there is one more relative pronoun like them, “whose”, which is a possessive pronoun. As always, thanks a lot, teacher Alex, it has been a very useful lesson to review grammar rules which put us sometimes in trouble.
Amazing class.. My question is: instead of “16 of whom I know”, could I say “16 of them I know”?
Thanks Alex for making me understand the difference between who & whom.you are awesome.
I am one of whom that very liked this lesson. Thanks Alex!
There’s nothing we can do …Mr Alex is the most awesome teacher ever
Sorry teacher Alex but in questions like the Number 2 “whom did She pick for the job” whom can be referred to singolar and plural subjects indifferently??
Hello, Alex. Great lesson. You know I have been always confused about this topic, but after watching your video I won’t be confused anymore. Greetins from Venezuela.Thank you
It seems clear and quite simple now but when conversation starts all these rules vanish from my mind immidiatly
I feel the same way in French! My advice on this one is to default to “who” in spoken English because very few native speakers don’t know the rule anyway.
How cool. Therefore, we know an additional thing than NATIVE SPEAKERS!!!!!! Sounds good.?
Could you please reply to my question as well.
I often get confused between “IS & HAS” “ARE & HAVE”
Fruits are perished & Fruits have perished
Office is closed & Office has closed
Could you please explain the difference.
Sorry younus123, did you ask me or Alex? But I think you asked Alex your question.
I asked him but if you know the rule or how does it work exactly then please help me out.
I got a 100.
Thank a lot.
Great explanation as ever.

Thanx Alex! 90% ?
Thanks ALEX!,it is very valuable, 100%.
Now i understand more the difference between who and whom but it’s still hard to use it practically. Anyway, good website to improve english.
well thanks i got 10 yayyy !
thanks again for the clarity you gave, i got 100% again for the 4 th lesson or quiz,
thank you Alex.
Hi.I am a little confused.You said that ‘who’ is a subject relative,which means it gives more information about the subject,but in ‘I have an uncle who works for Apple’,’I’ is the subject and ‘an uncle’ is the object so I think we should use ‘whom’ instead of ‘who’,because we are giving more information about the object.Please explain this.Thanks in advance.
Hi Alex, you such a good instructor. appreciate for all.
can I use to before whom? for example: “for all the children to whom we entrust the future”
I got 66% ???
I’ll do my best next time ???
Great lesson and learn .You are good teacher .Thanks for your vedio.
Finally, i know how to distinguish who and whom…
Now I understand how to use who and whom correctly. Thank you very much!

Thank you for the simplest, easiest explaining.
What is the difference between where are you from? and where do you come from?
Perfect explanation Thanks a lot for your time and devotion with this grammar topic. Wishing you a very happy and prosperous New Year
10/10 =1 is my lucky number due to you sir.Great respect and love from this indian.
You are a teacher whom most people admire.
thank you sir
Thank you, Alex.I enjoy with your lesson..I really love it.
Alex, you are great! So difficult topic you could tell so simply. I’m whatching your lessons with pleasure. 10/10.
And a special thank you for your pronunciation.
Thank you, Alex! 10/10.
I’m not using WHOM and rarely see it in the practical english. Sometimes I see remark on the documents “to whom it my concern” and that’s it. On top of that, WHOM sounds a little bit odd for my russian ear so I’ll most likely use another word e.g. “There are 10 people in the room, five of them I know personnaly. Anyway thank you for lesson Alex I appreciate what are you and your colleagues from engvid.com doing.
9 out of 10
Very good lesson. Thank you Alex
I’m being a little confused, but It’s great lesson for me. Thanks.

You are a teacher whom most students admire.
Thank you Teacher.
Excellent teacher with good explanation.
Your class was excellent, I understood very well about who/whom. Thank so much!
Alex, I still can’t understand Who and Whom -_-
I got 90 marks, so not bad.
Hey Alex . Thankyou for the lesson . I got 9 out of 10…
Nice lesson, Professor, thank you!
Hey Alex, thanks for this wonderful topic. I’d been looking easy way of learning English on the internet for so long until I landed here in this wonderful English learning site. You are my most favorite instructor here because you know how to execute your lesson very well and you make each lesson easy to follow. I’ll definitely recommend this site to all my friends.
Your lecturer was phenomenal.
I got 10 out of 10 hurray! thanks for this tricky lesson.
I have been struggling with this ‘Who vs Whom’ topic throughout my life. Many thanks to my teacher, Mr. Alex for helping me out. I can’t believe that I got 100% correct from the test. :)
Teacher can’t we say instead of ” whom”: most of (them) or .. 16 of (them) ??
It’s finally clear to me!!!!!!! Tks a lot
Thanks for the lesson, Alex. Just out of insatiable curiosity: I’ve come across this sentence “She was to be proud of her heritage, proud of whom she was.” in here https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/proud And I’m wondering, shouldn’t it be “proud of who she was”. I understand that “proud of” takes the object, thus whom is correct, but it is a sort of an indirect object clause here, don’t the words in a clause follow their own syntactic connections and if I’m not mistaken “she” is the subject and “who” must be the predicate of this clause. Thus it must be in the nominative case. On the other hand, if I change “whom” with “the person”, as in “She was to be proud of the person she was” it starts to feel like it really is the objective case, thus “whom” must be correct. I’m at a loss here.
So clear in all passages! Thanks Alex!
So great. I thank you for this course
I got 100%, Thanks Alex!
Very easy. Thank you for the explanation!
Thanks , could I say “ one of them “ instead of “ one of whom “ in question no. 6?
thanks a lot for nice explanation..
Is it correct to say
whom did mark see in london today ?
To talk about poeple that mark saw him
Thanks Alex, you’re a great teacher.
Have I done well
Thanks a lot
Excellent lesson. Got 10/10.
I know you like the Star Wars movies. I like them too.
“Try not. Do or do not. There is no Try”. Really true.
Thank you so much for the class, teacher Alex!
I just didn’t get what kind of action the subject is receiving on the frase: My students, most of whom are from Brazil, have a test today.
Or in this case, it is an exclusive expression and we must ignore the concept explained earlier?
Well teacher, it’s a lesson easy to learn. However quiz isn’t easy…
I got 8
Thanks a million.
how is it going?
I’ve just finished the quiz. I did it before watching the video. I managed to get 8 out of 10.
Now. I’m starting to watch the video.
I wish you all the best ;)
Thank you so much Mr. Alex. Your lesson is a really good prompt for me.
THANKS VERY CLEAR
I got 100% on quiz. Thank you Alex!
Thanks a lot
8/10 That’s not bad, I think, but it is one of the most complex topic I’ve ever learned
Thank you Alex who’s conducted this topic.
I got perfect! Thank you sir for this lesson.
Thanks Alex, I got 100%, like a native speaker I answered “who” in all.
