English Grammar Secrets Could

Could' is used to make polite requests. We can also use 'can' for these but 'could' is more polite. Could you help me, please? Could you lend me some money? Could I have a lift? Could I bother you for a moment? If we use 'could' in reply to these requests, it suggests that we do not really want to do it. If you agree to the request, it is better to say 'can'. Of course I can. I could help you if it's really necessary but I'm really busy right now. I could lend you some money but I'd need it back tomorrow without fail. I could give you a lift as far as Birmingham. 'Could' is used to talk about theoretical possibility and is similar in meaning to 'might'. It could rain later. Take an umbrella. He could be there by now. Could he be any happier? It could be Sarah's. Click here to get some fun exercises http://englishgrammarsecrets.com/could

The Present Perfect Tense | English Grammar Lesson
 
13:43
This lesson is an overview of the present perfect tense What it looks like, how to use it and when to use it! Structure: Subject + have/has + main verb (past participle form) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ If you don’t feel confident using the present perfect tense in English yet… There are probably a few reasons why! You need to know the past participle form of English verbs... And that can be pretty tricky with irregular verbs! 😳 And you need to understand how to use this tense! Perhaps you feel unsure about when to use the present perfect and when to use the past simple tenses. I will explain all of this inside this lesson. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ When using the present perfect tense, you need an auxiliary verb that helps your main verb to function. In the perfect tenses, the verb (to) have is always the auxiliary verb. In the present perfect tense, the main verb is in the past participle form. This is not difficult for regular past tense verbs. For regular verbs, the past participle form of the verb is the same as the past tense verb, so you just add -ed! But irregular verbs are different and the only way to learn the past participle form is to learn them individually. Past simple or present perfect tense? To answer this question you need to think about time. Finished time and unfinished time. Think about ‘last week’. That’s a good example of finished time. Last week is finished, it’s over. Yesterday, last week, last month, last year, 1991 - these are all examples of finished time… Time that is complete. What about ‘this week’? Is this week finished? No! Not yet. That is an example of unfinished time. There’s still more of this week to come. It’s not finished yet. When you are talking about a time period that has finished, use the past simple. When you are talking about a time period that is unfinished… Like today, this week, this month, this year, use the present perfect. Watch this lesson to learn when to use the present perfect and when to use the past simple tense.

English Grammar Secrets CAN
 
03:10
We use 'can' to talk about 'possibility'. Can you do that? I can't manage to do that. You can leave your car in that parking space. You cannot smoke in here. Notice that there are two negative forms: 'can't' and 'cannot'. These mean exactly the same thing. When we are speaking, we usually say 'can't'. We use 'can' to talk about 'ability'. I can speak French. I can't drive. We use 'can' to ask for and give permission. (We also use 'may' for this but is more formal and much less common.) Can I speak to you or are you too busy? You can use my phone. You can't come in. We use 'can' in offers, requests and instructions. Can I help? Can you give me a hand? When you finish that, you can take out the garbage. We use 'can' with 'see' 'hear' 'feel' 'smell' 'taste' to talk about something which is happening now . (Where you would use the present continuous with most other verbs.) I can smell something burning. Can you hear that noise? I can't see anything. We can use 'can't' for deduction. The opposite of 'can't' in this context is 'must'. You can't be hungry. You've just eaten. You must be hungry. You haven't eaten anything all day. He was in London one hour ago when I spoke to him. He can't be here yet. exercise 1 exercise 2 exercise 3 exercise 4

Parallelism: The secret to great writing
 
13:42
Parallelism or parallel structure is one of the secrets of great writing. It gives greater balance and power to the way you communicate. It will help you get higher grades, improve your job prospects, and look more professional. In this lesson, I explain all about parallelism -- what it is and how to use it correctly. This easy but important lesson will take your English to a higher level. Follow up by watching my lesson on the Magic of 3 to strengthen your English even more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FcAub-xqGQ&index=94&list=PLxSz4mPLHWDZgp8e6i0oyXOOrTAAaj0O7&t=0s Take the quiz on this lesson here: https://www.engvid.com/parallelism-great-writing/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. This lesson is for you if you want to learn how to communicate more powerfully in just a short time. This lesson is about something called: "Parallelism" or "Parallel Structure". Now, in case you've never heard of it, or if you've heard of it but you're not sure what it is, I just want to tell you that it's something really important, especially in academic circles or in the business world. All right? And also socially. So, whether you're speaking, or whether you're writing, this principle of parallelism will help you to communicate more effectively. So, first of all, what is parallelism? So, it's a speaking or writing technique in which you communicate more powerfully by balancing different parts of your sentence, and I'm going to show you lots of examples so you understand exactly. So, when we create a sentence that has parallel structure, it means that when we have a list of items in our sentence, all of the forms of speech should be the same. For example, you have verbs, verbs, verbs; nouns and nouns; adjectives and adjectives; adverbs and adverbs. Now, that seems obvious, but in real life when people speak and write, they don't always do that. So I'm going to show you: "What are the benefits of using parallelism?" and also exactly how to use them in a sentence. So, some of the benefits that you will get when you start creating sentences with parallel structure are that your sentences will have more weight, they'll be more balanced, they'll have more rhythm to them, they'll have more style, more clarity (they'll be more clear), and also you'll be able to emphasize things more. And as a result of all that, your speaking or your writing will be much more dramatic and much more powerful. And you may not realize why, but it's really important that this parallel structure exists. Now, in addition, it's not just something to make it better, it's not just something to improve your communication. In academic circles, if you don't follow these parallel structure rules, it's actually considered a mistake in writing; it's considered very weak writing, bad writing, poor writing, and you will get lower grades as a result of that. Okay? So it's really important, especially if you're in the academic world or writing anything serious or in the business world, to write this way. Let's look at some simple examples first. Okay? So, this sentence, the first one: "Janet sings and dances." So here, what do we see? We see verbs and verbs: "Janet sings and dances." If somebody didn't write this sentence properly, they might write: "Janet sings and is dancing." Now, here it didn't match because this was present simple, so this should be a verb in the present simple; they should both be verbs, they should both be in the same tense, and so on. Okay? Let's look at more examples. "We enjoy reading and cooking." Here we have two gerunds: "reading", "cooking". Next: "I like to watch movies and to travel abroad." Okay? Now, you see how that seems really balanced? Okay? So we have: "to watch movies", so we have an infinitive and a noun, and "to travel abroad". "To travel", infinitive and a... Well, it's not a noun, but it's like a noun, it functions like a noun. Next: "The reasons for my view are political, cultural, and social." So here we have three adjectives. Now, up til now we had two, now we have three. And if you've watched my earlier lesson on: "The Power of Three" or "The Magic of Three", you will know that this is really special. This is like parallelism on steroids. This is like the best kind of writing you can do, and a lot of very famous leaders and writers write this way, using parallelism in threes to make things much more effective. So, if you haven't watched that other lesson, I will tell you where you can get it; it's called: "The Magic of Three" on our website. So: "The reasons for my view are political, cultural, and social." Three adjectives. "The police acted quickly and carefully." Okay? So we have here: "quickly", "carefully", two adverbs. And last: "We enjoy comedies, dramas, and documentaries." So you have here three nouns. Right? So that's what's important: nouns with nouns, adverbs with adverbs, adjectives with adjectives - you get the idea. Okay? Now, if you get the idea, work with me, stay with me. […]

The 4 Secrets of PERFECT PRONUNCIATION | Sound Like a Native Speaker
 
14:53
Learn how to speak English with PERFECT PRONUNCIATION. In this lesson, you will learn the four secrets to sound like a native speaker. Also see - MOST COMMON MISTAKES IN ENGLISH & HOW TO AVOID THEM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Dax90QyXgI&list=PLmwr9polMHwsR35rD9spEhjFUFa7QblF9 For more FREE English lessons, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. Transcript: Hi and welcome back. In this lesson, I will teach you the four secrets to speak English with perfect pronunciation. These are the same techniques that I have used to improve my own pronunciation, and I have seen them work for many of my students as well. So what are these four secrets? They are sound, stress, tone and rhythm. I will explain to you what these are and how you can master all of them to sound more like a native speaker. So number one is sound. When we write a word in English, we write it using letters. Take this word, for example – we write it with six letters. In the same way, when we pronounce a word, we do it using sounds. This word is pronounced /sku:l/. You see that the written form has six letters – ‘s’, ‘c’, ‘h’, ‘o’, ‘o’, ‘l’ but the spoken form has four sounds /s/, /k/, /u:/ and /l/. Every word in English has both consonant sounds like /g/, /l/, /t/, /s/ etc. and vowel sounds like /a:/, /ei/, /i:/, /ʊ/ and so on. Here’s another example: ‘women’. This word is written with five letters and it’s spoken with five sounds, but notice that both the ‘o’ and the ‘e’ are pronounced as short /i/ sounds - /wim.in/. This is because in English, the spelling and pronunciation of a word can be very different, and for this reason, whenever you say a word, you need to get the sounds right. If you try to simply read the spelling, you might go wrong. So you must use a dictionary to learn the correct pronunciation of words. I suggest that you use an online dictionary like Cambridge, Oxford or Merriam-Webster because that way, when you search for a word, you can see the pronunciation in phonetic symbols, and you can also click a button to hear the correct pronunciation. So here’s an action point for you: every day, learn the pronunciation of at least 5 words. Pick words that you’re not sure how to pronounce, look them up in an online dictionary. Play the audio on the website or app, and practice along with it. For each word, practice saying it correctly at least 5 times. This is my 5x5 method – practice the correct pronunciation of 5 words, 5 times every day. Secret number two is stress. What does it mean to stress something? Well it means to give it emphasis or importance. When we do this in pronunciation, it’s called word stress or syllable stress. Take the word ‘school’. You know there are four sounds but we don’t say /s/, /k/, /u:/, /l/. We say all the sounds together as one group – ‘school’. This grouping of sounds is called a syllable. In the word /’wim.in/ there are two syllables because there are two groups of sounds – /wim/ and /in/. If a word has two or more syllables, one syllable will always be stressed – that is, it will be given more importance than the others. In this word, notice that we stress the first syllable – /WIM-in/ – the apostrophe (the little mark before /wim/) indicates this. Here’s another word – ‘correct’. There are again two syllables – ‘ka’ and ‘rekt’ but in this word, we stress the second syllable - /rekt/. So /ka-REKT/. Notice how that stressed syllable is said with a slightly louder volume and it also sounds longer - /ka’rekt/. In this next word - how many syllables are there? There are three – ba- nan-a. Which is stressed –the second – ba-NAN-a. Here’s one final example. Three syllables again – af- ter-noon. This time, the third syllable is stressed, so /af-ter- NOON/. Like when we say Good afternoon. It is very important to stress words correctly, because otherwise your pronunciation will sound awkward and strange. But if you can do this well, then it will show your listeners that you have good English pronunciation. Now generally, it’s difficult for us to guess which syllable in a word is stressed. But there’s good news – when you look up a word in a dictionary, you will find that the stressed syllable is marked. Some dictionaries will show this as an apostrophe. Others will capitalize the stressed syllable. So when you learn the pronunciation of a word, you should learn to say the sounds correctly, but you also learn which syllable to stress. Number three is tone. Another name for this is intonation. This means the way our voices go up and down when we speak. So it refers to the changes in the pitch of our voice. Intonation exists in all the languages of the world but different languages use different tones.

8 Common Grammar Mistakes in English!
 
06:27
"What's the different"? "Today morning"? "I enjoyed"? Improve your grammar by correcting the common mistakes in these English sentences. A good review for all students, especially at intermediate and advanced levels. Also check our full resource of 100 Common Grammar Mistakes in English at http://www.engvid.com/english-resource/50-common-grammar-mistakes-in-english/ Quiz: http://www.engvid.com/8-common-grammar-mistakes-in-english/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. In this lesson, you'll have a chance to review eight common English errors. So, let's see how you do. The first one: "Today morning I woke up late." So, what's wrong with that? There is actually something wrong with each and every one of these. I'll tell you that in advance; there's no... There are no tricks here. Okay? So, what's wrong with that sentence? "Today morning I woke up late." Well, it should be: "This morning". Okay? We don't say: "Today morning". We say: "This morning". Number two: "What's the different?" What's the different? Well, that's wrong too, because "different" is an adjective. What you want to use here is the noun. So, what's the noun of this word? "Difference". "What's the difference?" Okay? This is a really common error, so make sure you don't make this one. Next one: "I met John two years before." Okay? What's wrong with that? Well, over here, we can't say: "I met John two years before." We can say: "I met two... I met John two years ago." All right? If you use the word "before", then you have to say before something. "Before I graduated". Okay? "Before I got married", or whatever. But you can't use "before" by itself. So the proper word there is "ago". "I met John two years ago." Next one: "This is a six-months course." That sounds almost okay, but it's not okay. So the mistake here is with the "s". When we use this expression, it becomes... The entire expression becomes an adjective for the noun "course". So we should say: "This is a six-month course.", "This is a million dollar contract." And so on. Okay? That's another... Each of these is a different element of grammar, different aspect of grammar, and so on. Next, number five: "Thank you. I really enjoyed." What's wrong with that? Well, the problem is here. "Enjoyed" is a reflexive verb, so you would need to say: "I really enjoyed myself.", "I really enjoyed myself.", "He enjoyed himself.", "She enjoyed herself.", "We enjoyed ourselves.", "They enjoyed themselves." Okay? So there are certain reflexive verbs in English, and we need to use them correctly. That's one of them. Very common one. Okay, number six: "Did you loose your cellphone?" What's wrong with that? I helped you a little bit by actually showing you where the error is. So, many people make this error. This is actually a spelling mistake. You should be spelling the word this way. "Did you lose your cellphone?" "Loose" is an adjective which means not tight, and "lose" is the opposite of "find". Okay? "Did you lose your cellphone?" Also, the pronunciation is "lose" and not "loose". Next one: "This is an academic course.", "This is an academic course." So, what was wrong with what I said there? Okay? So, what was wrong was my pronunciation of that. So many people mispronounce this word. It is not "academic". It is "academic". The stress is on the middle. Academic. "This is an academic course.", "This is an academic program." Okay? So, if... In case you make that mistake. I'm not saying you do. In case you do, make sure you correct it. Last one: "Yes, I have a free time." Is that...? What's wrong there? What's going on? Okay, here. We don't need to say: "A free time". We need to say: "Free time", because this is a... Time is an uncountable noun. Now, each one of these examples represents a different aspect of grammar. So, how can you possibly learn all of them? Well, I'll give you two easy ways to help you out. One is to go to our website: www.engvid.com, because there, we have currently I think more than 700 lessons on different aspects of English grammar and of English in general for exams, for writing, speaking, all kinds of things. And by watching them, you can find the lessons that you actually need. And the other thing is that we also have... I've written actually a resource which might help you, which shows 50 such common errors that people make in English, and that might help you out as well. Okay? So, I hope you did well, and I hope you continue to do better and better in English. All the best with your English. Bye for now.
Improve your Vocabulary: Stop saying VERY!
 
20:06
Using the same word again and again is boring, which is why native English speakers use a wide variety of vocabulary to express their thoughts and feelings. In this vocabulary lesson, I will teach you how to express yourself more effectively by replacing the word "very" with more precise and interesting adjectives. For example, you can replace "very cold" with "freezing". This illustrates your point more precisely. You will sound more natural and intelligent. Using these adjectives on the speaking section of IELTS and TOEFL exams will impress your examiner and improve your score. Watch the video to discover many more examples of this kind of vocabulary substitution. Variety is the spice of life! Next, watch my lesson on how to learn vocabulary FAST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_aA-Hc74Ag TRANSCRIPT "Getting from here to there, it's been a long while." Oh, hi. My time is finally here. James from engVid. I can't believe this, this is like the Mirror Universe. If you watch Star Trek, you'll understand; if not, go watch Mirror Universe with Star Trek. I have two, look at them, I have two Mr. Es. In the first one Mr. E is hot, and the first one Mr. E is cold. Let's go to the board. E, what's up? "It's very hot. 35 degrees centigrade." You're right. I see you're wearing your Bermuda shorts. And the second E is saying he's very cold: "It's minus 30 degrees centigrade." Ow, this isn't good. I feel for you. But don't you think there are better ways to say it's very hot or it's very cold? I think so, and in today's lesson I'm going to teach some of you... Not some of you. I'm going to teach all of you how to get rid of the word "very" to describe everything, and use other words which give more information, which will make you sound more like a native speaker and make your writing phenomenal. Oh, "phenomenal"? That's a word for "very good". Are you ready? Let's go to the board. So, today's lesson is on "very". "Very" is a very good word, that's why we use it, but when you're writing, to hear somebody say: "Very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very" is what we call monotonous, it means "mono" as one, "tonous", one tone, one sound - very boring. So let's change that from you being... You know, using "very" because I teach and I notice a lot of students saying things, like: "Teacher, today it's very cold outside." I'm like: -"Yeah, it is." -"And I'm very tired and very hungry." I'm like: "Okay, okay." It's like being punched in the face again and again, and I just want to say: "Stop with the 'very'. Use a different word." But it's not fair because "very" is a very good word-there, I did it again-we just need to find other words to make your language sound richer to improve it so you sound more like a native English speaker, and to make it more interesting for you because it will express more of who you are and your ideas in a better way. It makes you unique. You ready? Let's go to the board. You'll notice I put "very" in red because this is something we don't want to do, we don't want to keep saying: "very". We want to change that up. And I'm going to give you a list of words that people or students usually say when they say "very" that I've heard many, many times. And maybe you've done this. And today I'm going to give you singular words to use instead. I'll explain them, just in case they're difficult. Let's start with the first one. People say: "Very rude", instead of saying that, you can say: "vulgar". "Vulgar" means very rude, and if somebody says to me: "Your language is vulgar", I'll probably stop talking because it means it's not right, it's inappropriate, it's very bad. Vulgar. "I don't like your vulgar tone", your rude tone. It's strong. "Very short", another word we say is "brief", which means small. We had a very brief... We had a very brief conversation, a very short conversation. Cool? "Boring". When you say: "Class was very boring today", you can say: "dull". "Dull" means very boring. It also means... See? Here's a bonus when you use these words, stupid. If you say someone is dull, you can say they're very boring, or dull meaning they're stupid. Don't use it like that too often; people don't like being called stupid. And if you say: "He's rather dull, isn't he?" I have to listen for context to mean stupid or boring. Next one, everybody's favourite: "Very good". "Teacher, the food is very good. The lesson is very good. I like this, it's very good." Why don't we change that to the word "superb"? Look carefully at the word "superb", you have the word "super" written inside it. "Super" means what? Above average, excellent, or superb, very good. "The food was superb." People don't usually use this word, so if you tell me when I cook for you that it's superb, I'm telling you right now I will take that as such an amazing compliment. Gentlemen, if you tell a woman she looks superb, she'll be like: "Thank you. Really?" Because no one says it. All right? […]
The Secret to English Vocabulary – How to remember more
 
08:43
The secret to a rich vocabulary is to remember words and not just recognize them. I'll teach you a practical, easy way to increase your active vocabulary. Understand the difference between your productive and receptive skills. Find out why multiple-choice questions are easier than fill-in-the blank questions. Use these tips to boost your vocabulary for everyday life and get higher grades on the IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC, SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, and other exams. http://www.engvid.com/the-secret-to-remembering-english-vocabulary/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. This is Rebecca. Let me start this lesson by asking you a question. Which of these two exercises is easier for you? Let me go through them with you. "Chaos means __________." Something. Fill in the blank. Okay? In other words, they're asking you here: the word "chaos" means what? Or second question: "Chaos means a) sadness b) disorder c) illness". Okay? Think about that for a second. So, which of these two questions was easier for you? Okay? If you're like most students, you will probably say that this question was easier for you, because you had a choice of something. And here, you actually had to think of the answer. All right? So, let me explain why that is the case. Here, in the fill in the blank question, you were asked to remember the answer. When you're trying to remember a word, you're using your active vocabulary. In English, like any other language, you have two kinds of skills. We have productive skills and receptive skills. Productive skills are what we use when we are speaking and writing, because when we speak and write, we have to remember words in order to do that. Right? And receptive skills are what you use when you're reading or listening, because when you do either of these activities, you just have to recognize the word, so you have to recall what they mean, but you don't have to think of them by yourself. You just have to recognize them. So the vocabulary that's involved here on this side is your passive vocabulary of being able to recognize things. The vocabulary that's demanded here for speaking and writing is your active vocabulary, which you need when you're doing these activities and which you needed here in the fill in the blank answer. Okay? So, this is true not only in English. It's true in every language. You have a productive... You have productive skills and receptive skills. You have an active vocabulary and a passive vocabulary. And, in all languages, people's passive vocabulary is always much, much larger than their active vocabulary. That's why you can read hundreds of books and understand thousands and thousands of words, but you may not actually use those words yourself, even in your own language and certainly in English. So, next, I'll explain to you how to develop this active vocabulary. So there are many ways to improve your active vocabulary. Today I'm going to show you one way. All right? So, what I've done is written a lot of vocabulary on the board, and what I'd like you to do is to take a theme, a vocabulary theme. What do I mean by a vocabulary theme? I mean an area, such as here, I've taken education, here I've taken religion, and here I've taken business or work. All right? And then you divide it. Let's say you have a piece of paper or you could do it, you know, on... You could do it written or you could do it in your mind, and you divide it into categories, such as: in the field of education, you want to think of people, you want to think of places, and you want to think of actions which are the verbs. Right? So you could start by just doing it in a simple way and see if you can come up with at least three examples. All right? Three examples of people in education: "teacher", "student", "principal"; places: "school", "college", "university"; actions: "study", "teach", "learn". Okay? In the area of religion, if we're talking about different kinds of people, people of different religions: "Muslims", "Christians", "Hindus"; places in the area of religion: "mosque", "church", "temple"; actions could be: "pray", "bless", "believe". Obviously, these are not the only examples; I'm just showing you how to do it. In the field of business, for people you might put: "manager", "employee", "supervisor"; for places: "office", "factory", "department"; and for actions, things like: "work", or "recruit", or "promote". Okay?

In this lesson, I’m going to teach you the rules for using the seven most important punctuation marks, so that you can write correct English without making mistakes. There are exercises within the lesson to help you practice, and as always there is a final quiz at the end of the video. So, if you’re ready, let’s begin. We’re going to start with terminal punctuation. ‘Terminal’ means the end, so terminal punctuation marks are what we use to end a sentence. There are three of these: the period or the full stop, the exclamation mark, and the question mark. Let’s look at the period first. This mark is called the period in American English (AmE means American English), and it’s called the full stop in British English. It is used to mark the end of declarative and imperative sentences. I’ll explain. Here are some examples: “I teach English.” “We had pizza for dinner last night.” “If it rains tomorrow, I’ll bring my umbrella.” These sentences are called declarative sentences because they declare something; they give us some information. And at the end of each sentence, you see a period or full stop. Imperative sentences are commands or requests: “Please don’t feed the animals.” You might see this on a sign in a zoo. “Let me know what time your flight arrives.” “If it rains tomorrow, bring your umbrella.” Let’s now turn to the exclamation mark. It is used to convey strong emotion or feeling. Have a look at these two sentences: Both of them mean the same thing. The first sentence, which ends in a period, has no special feeling or emotion; it’s like saying “I’m really excited about my new job.” Doesn’t sound like I’m very excited, does it? That’s why we use the exclamation mark: “I’m really excited about my new job!” – it tells our reader to read the sentence with emotion – in this sentence, the emotion is excitement. This next sentence: “If you come to work late tomorrow, you’re fired!” Imagine a manger saying this to an employee. So, this expresses anger. In the same way, you can show many other feelings including surprise, joy, fear etc. using the exclamation mark. Now, both of these sentences are declarative, but you can also use the exclamation mark in an imperative sentence like this one: “Johnny, don’t play with your food!” You can imagine a mother saying that angrily to her son. So, it’s a strong or strict command. Another place where we use the exclamation mark is after interjections. Here are a couple of sentences: “Ouch! You just stepped on my foot!” “Wow! What a beautiful house!” Interjections are words like “ouch” and “wow” which are used to express feelings. So, remember: if you want to convey strong emotion in a sentence, put an exclamation mark at the end of it. If there’s no special feeling, just end the sentence with a period. OK, let’s turn now to the third terminal punctuation symbol: the question mark. It is used to mark the end of a question. So, it’s very straightforward: if a sentence is a question, then put a question mark at the end of it. Here are some examples: “What do you do?” “Are we allowed to feed the animals?” “If it rains tomorrow, should I bring my umbrella?” “Are you excited about your new job?” “Who lives in that house?” So, the rule is: if a sentence is a question, it must end with a question mark. Alright, let’s do a small exercise now. There are four sentences on the screen. I want you to add periods or full stops, exclamation marks and question marks where necessary. Stop the video, think about your answers, then play the video and check. OK, here are the answers. If you want, stop the video again, check your answers, then play the video and continue. Before we move on to the next topic, a quick note on spacing. Notice that there is no space between the last letter of a sentence and the terminal punctuation mark. If you put a space there, it’s wrong. But, when you begin a new sentence, you should leave a space after the terminal mark, and you should start the new sentence with a capital letter.

Transcript: Hi and welcome back to our series of lessons on the parts of speech My name is Ganesh and this lesson is all about verbs. In this lesson I will teach you the different types of verbs that we have in English and I'll also show you how to avoid some common mistakes that students make with verbs. We will start with state and action verbs, and then we'll look at main and helping verbs, and then we'll turn to regular and irregular verbs, and finally we'll discuss transitive and intransitive verbs. Now before we begin as always if you have any questions at all you just have to let me know in the comments section and I'll talk to you there. OK so first of all what is a verb? Well a verb is just a word that shows an action or a state - state means a situation. And actually those are the two types of verbs - we call them state verbs and action verbs. Sometimes they're called stative and dynamic verbs but the meaning is the same. OK what's the difference between these two? The difference is that action verbs express physical activities or processes. For example verbs like kick, shout, run, climb, stand, sit, grow - all of these show us physical activities or processes. But a state verb is a verb that expresses a situation - for example, verbs like be, have, think, like and own are all state verbs. Now when I say "I have a large family" - here I'm using the state verb 'have'. That means I'm not talking about doing any physical action. I'm just telling you about a situation - in this case about my family. Or if I said "Julia likes chocolate ice cream." Is Julia doing any action in that sentence? No, that sentence just gives you some information about Julia. We're still using a verb - like - but it's a state verb Why is this difference important? And is it important at all? It is. Because there's an important rule in English that you should know and that rule is state verbs cannot be used in continuous form, you can only do that with action verbs. Let's look at a couple of examples. Now we can say "The children are playing in the park" or "Who's shouting?" Both of these sentences are correct because the verbs play and shout are physical actions, so we can use -ing forms. But we cannot say "I'm having a large family." or "Julia is liking chocolate ice cream." Both of those sentences are wrong They're common mistakes that some students make - some students use -ing forms with state verbs. Please don't make that mistake, and remember: no continuous forms with state verbs. OK let's now move on and talk about main and helping verbs. These are sometimes called auxiliary verbs as well. When a verb is used in a sentence, it can be used in two ways - it can either be used as the main verb of the sentence or it can be a helping verb - that is it can help the main verb. The most important helping verbs are be, do and have. Let's look at some examples with these: "Luciano is working now." In this sentence there are two verbs - can you tell me which are the two verbs? 'Is' and 'working' are the two verbs. Which is the main verb? The main verb is 'working' because that shows the action that is happening. Wo what about 'is'? What is it doing? 'Is' is a helping verb - that shows the tense of sentence. We know that Luciano is working now because we said 'is'. If I said Luciano was working, you know I'm talking about the past. So that helping verb is showing the tense, and that's one of the things that helping verbs can do. They can also help us to form negative sentences. For example "Luciano isn't working now" or questions - "I Is Luciano working now?" In all three of these sentences, the helping verb is 'be' or 'to be'. We're saying 'is' but that's just a form of the verb 'to be' - we say 'I am', 'you are', 'he is', 'she is, etc. The verbs 'do' and 'have' can also be helping verbs.

3 WAYS TO USE THE PAST PERFECT GRAMMAR TENSE IN ENGLISH (+ EXAMPLES!)
 
08:09
How to talk about something that happened before something else! 👉 Free chapter of The English Fluency Formula: https://goo.gl/va6Qgp 👀 See the full lesson on the blog: https://goo.gl/bs7v9b Past perfect tenses, one of our most requested topics, will help you improve your English fluency through improving your understanding of English grammar. The past perfect tense is used when we want to indicate that an action was completed (or perfected) in the distant past, before something else in the recent (or simple) past occurred. Therefore, the past perfect tense is for talking about something that happened before something else. The basic formula for the past perfect tense is easy: had + past participle verb. This formula stay the same, whether the subject is singular or plural. If you'd like to make the statement negative, simply insert the word 'not' between 'had' and the past participle. You should only use the past perfect tense when trying to convey a sequence of events.  Did you ever get to the chapter about past perfect tenses in your English class? This topic is often left until the very end, usually because it's at the very end of the book. This is why so many English learners never get around to studying it! It's also hard to learn because it is not used that often in spoken English. Its use is practical, however, and English speakers do use the past perfect tense in three specific ways. 1. Narrating a story 2. Reported speech 3. Conditional tenses Check out our video lesson above for some awesome examples of this tense! 👉 FOLLOW ON IG @gonaturalenglish 👉 TWEET US @gonaturaleng 👉 FACEBOOK: http://facebook.com/gonaturalenglish IMPROVE YOUR ENGLISH FLUENCY WITH GO NATURAL ENGLISH LESSONS ON LISTENING, GRAMMAR, PRONUNCIATION, AMERICAN ACCENT TRAINING, VOCABULARY AND ALL THE SECRETS YOU WON'T LEARN IN A TRADITIONAL CLASSROOM!

Adjective Order - English Grammar Lesson
 
08:01
Learn about adjective order in English with this lesson. When you use several adjectives with a noun in English, the adjectives have to go in a specific order. For example, we say "strong black Italian coffee," but you can't say "strong Italian black coffee" or "Italian black strong coffee." Why not? Because of the adjective order rules. You can see the full lesson (which includes the text and a quiz to help you practice) here: http://www.oxfordonlineenglish.com/adjective-order-in-english The basic rules for adjective order are: - Opinions go before facts - General ideas go before specific ideas There's also a more complicated rule, which you'll see in the video.

The Past Perfect Tense (I had gone) - English Grammar lesson
 
07:59
The Past Perfect Tense (I had gone) - English Grammar lesson Generally there is a lot of confusion between using the simple past and the past perfect tense. The past perfect tense always has a verb in the past participle form that is followed by ‘had’. The past perfect tense is used when you want to say something happened before another past action. If two actions happened, the action that happened first comes in the past perfect, and the action that happened second, takes the simple past form. Example 01: When I reached the station, the train had started. (‘had started’ is the past perfect tense. This shows, first the train started and then I reached.) Example 02: Jane had read a lot before she went to the zoo. (‘had read’ is the past perfect to show that it happened first. Example 03: Before the installation of the new software, productivity had been low. Example 04: After I had had my dinner, I completed my work. (first I had eaten my dinner)

Transcript: Hi and welcome to this series of lessons on the parts of speech My name is Ganesh and in this first lesson I'm going to give you a quick Introduction to the eight parts of speech. In the following lessons we'll learn more in detail about each part of speech. Before we start just remember if you have any questions at all you just have to let me know in the comments section below and I will talk to you there. OK so first of all what is a part of speech? Well a part of speech is just the name given to a word based on the job that it does in a sentence. Think of parts of speech as being kind of like job titles Just like a person can be a teacher or a doctor or a lawyer - a word can be a verb, an adjective, a noun etc depending on the job that it does in a sentence And these can be really useful to learn because when you're studying grammar you will come across terms like these, you will come across terms like nouns, verbs and adjectives, and if you know what they mean it can help you to speed up your study of grammar. Alright so how many parts of speech are there? There are eight parts of speech and we start by talking about the verb. We start with the verb because verbs are probably the most important words in the English language, and that is for two reasons: first every sentence in English must have a verb You cannot have sentences without verbs in English, and the second reason is that only verbs have tenses. I'm sure you know about past tense, present tense and future tense That's how we talk about different times and to do that we change the forms of verbs. So verbs are really important. So what does a verb do? Well a verb is a word that shows an action or a state - state means a situation. For example in the sentence Dylan plays tennis three times a week. In the sentence the verb is play because that's the action, and we're saying plays because for he,she and it we say plays - we add the 's' to the verb in the present tense, so "Dylan plays." In this next sentence "I am a teacher" - can you tell me which is the verb? The verb is 'am; - that's basically just the verb to be - but we say I am, you are, he is etc. so "I am a teacher" Now I want you to notice a very important difference between these two sentences. Notice that in the first sentence we are talking about a physical action because playing is something that we do physically. But in the second sentence we are not talking about any physical action - we're just saying "I am a teacher." We call that a state, that means a situation. So verbs can show actions or they can show states or situations. Those are the two types of verbs OK the next part of speech is the noun. A noun is the name given to a person, place, animal, thing, feeling or idea. For example here's a sentence with a lot of nouns - "Rosie went to Malta on vacation with her family last year." Can you identify all the nouns in the sentence? Well the first noun is Rosie - it's the name of a person. The second noun is Malta Malta is the name of a place. It's actually a beautiful small little island country in Europe. Malta is a place. The next noun is vacation. Vacation is the name given to a type of trip the people take, and the noun after that is family What's a family? A family is a group of people who are related - mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters etc. and the last noun in the sentence is year - a year is just 365 days or the time that it takes the earth to go around the Sun. Now of course nouns can also be animals like dogs or cats or a noun could be a thing like watch, pen, t-shirt etc. Or it could be a feeling such as love or anger Those are all nouns. What's a pronoun then? A pronoun is a word that replaces a noun - replaces means it takes the place of a noun. But you might ask - why should a pronoun do that? Well take a look at this sentence -

Judy Thompson, B.A., TESL Certification, professor, author and speaker is an expert in spoken English. A student herself of French and German, Judy knows firsthand the frustrations of learning to speak a new language. Judy lived and taught in South Korea and it was there that she had the first of many revelations about spoken English and how it should be taught. Newcomers are embarrassed about their accents and grammar mistakes and native speakers are unaware that the way they speak makes it extremely difficult for non-native speakers to understand them. Judy leads language classes for both native and non-native speakers to foster understanding and effective communication in our diverse community. A long time resident of Caledon, Ontario, Judy has four children and lives with her husband Richard on a beautiful ten-acre hobby farm. She is an environmental activist who enjoys hiking and skiing.

13 ENGLISH MISTAKES EVEN ADVANCED ENGLISH LEARNERS MAKE 😮
 
11:52
Here is a great list of super common mistakes that you might be making. Check out our video lesson above to hear these mistakes and learn how to correct them! 1. ON NEXT MONDAY: Imagine that you're making plans with a friend. You agree to meet for coffee, and your friend asks you what day would work for you. "How about on next Monday?" No! That's incorrect. You can say either "How about next Monday?" or "How about on Monday?," but you cannot use both! 2. IN LAST JULY: Similarly to #1, you can only choose one of these! You can say "in July" or "last July," but you cannot mix both. You can use in when referring to a year, like "in 2003," and you can use last in "last week," "last month," and "last year." 3. NATIVE AMERICAN vs. NATIVE SPEAKER: Native Americans are the people who first lived in North America, way before European settlers arrived on this continent. A Native American is not someone whose mother tongue or native language is American English. It's actually a whole other group of people! The correct term for what you'd like to become, as an awesome English student, is native English speaker :) 4. LEGENDS vs. SUBTITLES: We hope you've been practicing your English skills by watching movies in English. It's such a fun way to learn! However, if you need a visual text guide to help you catch all those words that you might not understand, you should see if the movie has subtitles. Portuguese speakers, especially might ask for the "legends" (legendas in Portuguese), which is incorrect. Instead, a legend is usually a person who is looked up to, or a hero, or an epic story that is passed down through generations. 5. DON'T SKIP WORDS! For example, if you want to ask someone where they're from, don't ask: "Where from?" You're skipping, or leaving out, some important words there! The correct way to ask would be: "Where are you from?" Native English speakers might sound like they're only saying "where from," but that's because we're emphasizing the stress words, and might be speaking quickly. 6. THANKS GOD: We love seeing your positive comments on our lessons and videos, and we appreciate these nice words! However, they are NOT correct. The correct way to say this phrase is: "Thank God!" Another way to say this (in perhaps a less religious sense, if you would prefer) would be: "Thank goodness!" 7. TEACHER IS NOT A TITLE! Gabby is a great teacher, and we know how much you enjoy interacting with her! However, when addressing a teacher, you should instead address them by their name. For example: in a more formal situation, you would address a teacher by their last name, i.e. Mr. Smith or Mrs. Smith. In some cases, women might prefer Miss Smith (if they are unmarried), or Ms. Smith, which is a general form of addressing women and which does not reflect their marital status. In a less formal setting, like what we do here at Go Natural English, you could refer to your teacher here as Gabby :) 8. MA'AM OR MADAM: This is most commonly used as a sign of respect for much older women, particularly in the South. You should only be using words like ma'am or madam in very formal situations, or with your elders. 9. EXPLAIN THIS TO ME: When you would like to have something explained better, you would not ask: "Explain me this." That is incorrect! The correct way would be to say: "Explain this to me" or "Explain it to me." 10. ASK ME: Don't say "Ask to me" or "Ask to him/her." We simply say: ask me, ask him/her, ask them, ask Gabby! 11. FUNNY vs. FUN: Funny is something that makes you laugh or is comical (ha ha ha!). Something fun is something you enjoy doing, that makes you happy, but you're not necessarily laughing. 12. I HAVEN'T + NOUN: Saying things like "I haven't the money," or "I haven't the time," are technically correct phrases, but they are antiquated. These are very old ways of saying "I don't have the money," or "I don't have the time." You might hear the older versions in countries like the U.K., but you will likely never hear them in the U.S. You would, however, see "haven't" used in front of a verb in the past participle, like: "I haven't studied today." 13. CHANGE WORD ORDER FOR QUESTIONS: We've been asked: "When you will start the new Go Natural English course?" a few times! That is an incorrect question. The correct way to ask would be: "When will you start the new Go Natural English course?" Subject + verb is the sentence structure you'd use for a statement. You need to invert it when you ask a question like this!

All MODAL VERBS lessons: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmwr9polMHwvGTssgSU9KWEm2T4WiWaTj Transcript: Welcome back. In this lesson, we’re going to look at ten commonly confused pairs of words. I will show you how to avoid the confusion and use all of these correctly without making mistakes. There are two quizzes in this lesson – one in the middle and one in the end – for you to check your understanding. So let’s jump in. The first pair of words are ‘lose’ and ‘loose’. The word ‘lose’ with a single ‘o’ is a verb. The most common meaning of this verb is ‘to not have something because you can’t find it’. For example: “I don’t take my watch when I go swimming so that I don’t lose it.” Notice that the last sound in this word is /z/ - /lu:z/. Another meaning is ‘to fail to win a competition’ as in: “The team will be out of the tournament if it loses this match.” ‘Loose’ with two ‘o’s is an adjective that means ‘not fixed or not attached strongly’. For example: “It looks like you have a loose button on your shirt.” Here, the last sound is /s/ - /lu:s/” One of my teeth is loose. I think it’s going to fall off.” To recap the pronunciation, ‘lose’ has a /z/ sound at the end and ‘loose’ has a ‘s’ sound at the end – ‘lose’, ‘loose’. Number two is the pair of ‘every day’ and ‘everyday’. The difference in spelling between these forms is the space. When we write ‘every day’ with a space, it’s an adverb phrase that simply means ‘each day’. In most situations, this is the form you should use. For example: “I get up at 7 am every day.” “He goes to the gym every day.” and so on. When it’s written without a space, ‘everyday’ is an adjective that means ‘common or ordinary’. “I need to buy a pair of jeans for everyday wear.” (meaning for daily use.) “The best teachers explain difficult concepts using simple, everyday language.” That means using ordinary language. So remember that ‘every day’ with a space means ‘each day’ and without a space, it means ‘common or ordinary’. Next up are the words ‘maybe’ and ‘may be’. Again, the difference is the space. These words are very close in meaning. Both of them are used to make guesses or talk about possibility. When we write ‘maybe’ as a single word, it’s an adverb. Take this sentence: “It will rain tomorrow” – here, the main verb is ‘rain’ and there’s the helping verb ‘will’ – this is a modal verb used to make predictions about the future. So this sentence sounds like I’m confident that it will rain tomorrow. But if I’m not so sure, I can say: “Maybe it will rain tomorrow.” So the maybe at the beginning makes it a little softer – I’m not so confident. Instead, we can also say “It may rain tomorrow.” or “It might rain tomorrow.” Here, we have used the modal verb ‘may’ or ‘might’ (same meaning) to make a weak prediction or guess about the future. Here’s another example: let’s say that a baby is crying. Someone asks, “Why is the baby crying?” and the answer is “She is hungry.” That sounds like we’re very sure that that’s why the baby is crying. But what if we’re not so sure? Simple: add ‘maybe’ to the beginning of the sentence. But I have a question for you: what is the main verb in this sentence? It’s ‘is’ which is a present tense form of ‘be’. There’s no helping verb here because we don’t need one in the present tense. So here’s another way we can say this: “She may be hungry.” Here, ‘may’ is a modal verb and ‘be’ is the main verb in the sentence. This is always true when we write ‘may’ and ‘be’ as separate words: ‘may’ is a modal verb that shows uncertainty and ‘be’ is the main verb. One last example: “I forgot to get my brother a birthday present. Maybe that is why he’s angry with me.” You can also say, “That may be why he is angry with me.” If you want, stop the video, read all of this and make sure you understand. Then play the video again and continue. Number four is the pair of ‘Desert’ and ‘dessert’. ‘Desert’ (with only one ‘s’) is a noun refers to an area covered with sand where there’s no water or plant life.
