Hi Brother Alex,
Thanks for your video’s
past days i am worried about my english communication,when i was seen your youtube class’s really iam impressed your teaching way,now i hope i can do my best.


Hi Alex,

thank you very much for this lesson, which is, like always, a lesson of excellent teacher. Complicated or annoying thinks are taught in a easy and effective way. Also, I´ve really enjoyed this lesson´s quiz as well, especially the last question, which was the funniest one.


    I agree! :) But for me the second question is Shakespeare’s dilemma! To be or not to be?


    I’m glad it was clear! Thanks for checking it out, adrijana! :)


      Hi Alex! How’ve you been? Long time no see!

      Being aware of all the language problems that will come up when you are learning the target language helps a great deal. Language awareness, however, is seldom addressed in language courses, the focus –I would say- is primarily on form and meaning. So students are practically left to their own devices in the process . Being aware of all these potential problem areas and how to cope with them is what really makes the learning experience challenging and interesting.

      Thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience with us Alex.


        Nice to see you too, Regino! Hope you’ve been doing well. :)

    I hope this helps you to feel better about your studies!


Thanks a lot for all the materials for free!!! I am gonna parse them all!


Hi Alex. One of the easy aspects of English – no suffixes in conjugation, has also its dark side. Which of the following is correct – traffic control device development, development of traffic control device, the developing of the device controlling the traffic, development of the traffic-controlling device? Which of them sounds best or is most understandable for a native English speaker?

As for phrasal verbs, they are probably not that special to English. In Polish, verbs formed by adding a prefix to a verb’s root seem to be something very similar (consider dotrzeć, przyprawić, przejrzeć, opuścić).



Hi Alex, the leason is great. We could improve our english, only when we aware where is the problem we need focus on.


Thanks for helpful lesson. I try to check out the latest videos from engVid. I thought speaking English fluently was impossible for me until last year, but I set a goal to speak English fluently someday and I just keep going everyday. I try to study English at least 15 minutes a day through watching one or two engVid videos and speak with a native speaker online everyday. Sometimes I feel I go smoothly and sometimes I feel frustrated because I think I don’t improve at all. I feel basic vocabulary is very important but concentration is also equally or more important when we want to improve our English or other languages.
One more thing to mention. I always thought why people from the Netherlands or Sweden learn English faster and speak very fluently than people from other countries. Maybe because their languages are similiar to each other or because their learning method is fantastic. Well, thanks engVid for providing amazing lessons to the world for more than 10 years. All the best!

Before this lesson I thought that 3000 or 5000 words are enough for normal conversation but Alex corrected me) I am very surprised that most people have used near 20 000 words.


Hi Alex. I got 5/10 before your lesson. Is it possible to retake the test after the lesson? Thanks

Ukraine not *the Ukraine*


    That’s right


    Check this out: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Name_of_Ukraine
    In English, the traditional use was “the Ukraine”, which is nowadays less common and officially deprecated by the Ukrainian government and many English language media publications.


I live in Ukraine
