English lesson | Wishes and regrets
 
11:11
In this English lesson, you will learn 4 structures to express wishes and regrets. wish + past simple = to describe a situation in the present that we would like to be different. We use the past simple form, but our regret is in the present. Example: I wish I had more friends. wish + someone / something + "would" + base form of verb = we want someone to change their behaviour or = we want something to happen Example: I wish you would listen. wish + past perfect = to describe a past situation that we regret. Example: I wish I had gone to the concert. We can also use "never" with a negative to emphasise our regret: Example: I wish I had never gone to the concert. (I went to the concert. I really regret it now.) "if only" + past perfect = This is another way to describe situation from the past that we regret. If only I had passed my exams. (I didn't pass my exams. I regret it now.) "if only" + past perfect and wish + past perfect The meaning of the above 2 structures is the same. The difference is that "if only" is slightly more formal. There are lots of examples and detailed explanations in in the video. The accent is a British English accent.

When to use "do" and "make" | English grammar lesson
 
19:52
In this English grammar lesson, you will learn when to use "do" and "make". The general grammar rule is that we say "do" to describe an action and "make" when we create something. An example is we say "The chef is doing the cooking" So we use "do" to describe specific work, job or task. It is usually work that is regular and compulsory. We also use the verb "to do" to describe non-specific actions or activities. Example: "I want to do something." These sentences often contain words which identify the action as non-specific like something, anything, everything, nothing. We also use "do" to replace another verb if the meaning is clear, example "I am doing my hair" which means "I am brushing my hair." Finally there are lots of English expressions with "do" that you need to learn: -to do business -to do a favour for somebody. etc We use the verb "to make" mostly when something is created. For example, "Sarah made a dress." We also say "make" when we are preparing food or drink. Example, "I am making a coffee". Finally there are lots of expressions with make that you must learn because they are often exceptions to the grammar rules: -to make a choice -to make an appointment etc At the end of the English grammar lesson, there is an exercise to test your understanding. If you have any questions, please ask me in the comments section below the video lesson and I will answer. The accent in the video is a British English accent.

Third conditional | Unreal conditional in the past
 
15:44
The third conditional describes a hypothetical unreal situation in the past. We are imagining the result of something that did not happen. We are imagining a different past. The condition takes the past perfect tense. The structure of the result part of the sentence is: subject + would have + the past participle form of the verb. "would" is a type of modal. We can use other modals in the third conditional, such as "might" and "could". I explain their meaning with clear examples in this video. I also explain the difference between the second and third conditional with examples. This video will be of particular interest to ESL students and teachers. The accent is a British English accent.

Present Perfect tense | Part 1 - Form
 
20:05
Here is an English grammar lesson about the form of the present perfect tense. In this lesson, you will learn the affirmative form (positive), question form and negative form of the present perfect tense. I also explain the contracted forms for the affirmative and negative. The present perfect is formed by a combination of the auxiliary verb "have" in the present followed by the past participle of the main verb. Example: "I have cleaned." The past participle of regular verbs is formed by adding "ed" to the base form. I also give you the spelling rules of forming the past participle of other regular verbs. The past participle of irregular verbs have no rules at all and you must simply learn them by heart when you learn a new verb. Some examples are be - been, find - found, do - done, go - gone. The position of adverbs whne using the present perfect is very important. Generally we place the adverb between the auxiliary verb "have" and the past participle of the main verb. Example "He has JUST left the office." At the end of this English grammar lesson, there are some exercises to test your understanding. If you have any questions, please ask me in the comments section below the video lesson and I will answer. The accent in the video is a British English accent.

Second conditional | Unreal conditionals
 
18:39
The second conditional describes an imaginary, impossible or unlikely situation in the present or future. The situation is unreal or hypothetical. The condition takes the past simple tense to reflect a distance from reality but the time is NOT in the past. When we use the verb "to be" as a main verb, the tense is the past simple, subjunctive mood and not the usual indicative mood. The structure of the result part of the sentence is: subject + would + the base form of the verb. "would" is a type of modal. We can use other modals in the second conditional, such as "might" and "could". I explain their meaning with clear examples in this video. ESL students often ask the question: "What is the difference between the first conditional and the second conditional?" - Well I answer that question with a clear example and explanation. The accent is a British English accent.

PAST PERFECT TENSE | English grammar lesson and exercise
 
23:43
This is an English lesson about the past perfect tense. The video starts with an example of when to use the verb tense. You will then learn the form, in particular, the affirmative, negative and question forms with the appropriate contracted forms. The affirmative form of the past perfect is made up of the subject + had + the main verb in the past participle form. "had" is the past form of the verb "have" being used as an auxiliary verb. We then look at all the common uses and meaning of the verb tense. The three main uses of the past perfect tense are: 1)To describe the first action or event in a series of actions or events from the past, 2)In reported speech when the reporting verb is in the past and the direct speech tense would be the past simple or the present perfect. Example: He said that he had liked the film. 3)In past unreal conditionals to describe an unreal situation from the past. Example: "If he had come to the party, I would have been pleased." At the end of the English grammar lesson, there is an exercise for you to complete. The accent in the video is a British English accent.

When to use "much" and "many" | English grammar lesson
 
18:24
Learn the difference between "much" and "many" with this English grammar lesson. We use many when asking about quantity with countable nouns with the expression "how many". Example: How many apples are there? We use how much for asking about quantity with uncountable nouns. Example: How much milk is there? We also use many in negative sentences with countable nouns to describe a small quantity or amount. Example: "There aren't many apples." For describing a small quantity with uncountable nouns, then we use much in the negative, for example "there isn't much wine." For positive sentences to express a large quantity, we do NOT use much or many. We prefer "a lot of" or "lots of". For example "There are a lot of oranges" and "there is a lot of milk. At the end of the English lesson, there are some grammar exercises to test your understanding. The accent is a British English accent and there are subtitles / closed captions during the whole video lesson.

International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) | English Pronunciation
 
24:28
This lesson explains the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) and how it can help with English pronunciation. I start the lesson by defining the International Phonetic Alphabet and showing why it is so useful. The letters of a word don't help us in knowing how to pronounce it because the same letter can have lots of different sounds in different words. For example, the letter "c" has a very different sound in the word "car" compared to the letter "c" in the word "dice". Also the same phonetic sound can be produced by lots of different combinations of letters. The IPA is a system for representing each phonetic sound with a symbol and we use use these symbols to transcribe the correct pronunciation of a word. In the English language, there are 44 phonetic symbols and sounds made up of vowels (short and long), dipthongs and consonant sounds. In this video, I pronounce all of the 44 sounds (actually called phonemes) and show you the corresponding symbol. On top of these standard 44 sounds, American English has a few other specific sounds which I also pronounce and briefly explain. Among the consonant sounds, there is a set of 8 pairs of consonants - In each pair, there is a voiceless consonant (example "p") and its equivalent voiced consonant (example "b"). Each pair's sound (example both the "p" and "b" sound) is produced by exactly the same mouth and tongue position. The only difference is that the voiceless consonant sound (example "p") is produced only by the mouth whereas the voiced consonant sound (example "b") is produced by the vibrations of the vocal cords in the throat. I also present some IPA special characters which are used to represent the start and end of a phonetic transcription, the stressed syllable and the start of a new syllable. The accent in the video is a British English accent but I do try to pronounce the 3-4 American English sounds with an American accent :) IPA RESOURCES: Private English lessons & speaking practice: http://goo.gl/T7bKHx Here is the link to the PDF reference file with all the IPA symbols and example words: IPA reference file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8v1Z0nKnKCaYW9Tbkc1Tjg2VHc/edit?usp=sharing Free online dictionary with IPA as seen in the video: http://www.dictionary.cambridge.org Here are the playlists of my English lessons: Grammar lessons: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6BDo90oiwpS4_AM1c0s0ozpROeE2A9ff Listening exercises: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6BDo90oiwpRdmnAzmYwdc0Az0ZOG2XNA Vocabulary videos: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6BDo90oiwpTlYAYSitjwWn29BEdCBi9j Andrew, Crown Academy of English http://www.crownacademyenglish.com http://www.youtube.com/user/CrownAcademyEnglish https://twitter.com/Crown_English Photo credits: "All The Best Guys!"

ESPECIALLY vs SPECIALLY | English vocabulary
 
10:45
What is the difference between especially and specially in English? "especially" and "specially" are both adverbs. We use "especially" to describe one person, thing, or situation that is above all the others. The meaning is similar to "in particular" Example: I like all of my friends, especially Mark. "specially" on the other hand describes the specific (particular) purpose of something. Example: The bag was specially designed for my computer.

Be about + infinitive | English grammar lesson
 
09:00
be about + infinitive This structure describes something that we expect to happen very soon. It refers to the immediate future. Example sentence: The film is about to start. We can add the word "just" between the verb "be" and the word "about" as follows: be just about + infinitive The meaning is practically the same but here we are really emphasising that the action is going to happen very very soon. Maybe a few seconds or minutes later. Example sentence: The bus is just about to leave. We can also put the verb in the past tense: Past form of be + about + infinitive This describes an action from the past that was going to happen, but in fact didn't happen - Usually due to a sudden change. Example sentence: I was about to call you.

How to agree in English | Grammar lesson
 
19:46
Learn how to agree in the English language using the words "so" and "neither" with this grammar lesson. In this video, I show you how to use the word "so" to agree with someone in the affirmative or positive. If there are auxiliary verbs in the original sentence, then we must use the same auxiliary verb when we agree. Example: I am hungry - "So am I." Without auxiliary verbs, we use the verb "to do" - For example - "So do I." "Neither" is used to agree with somebody in the negative and the same rule regarding auxiliary verbs applies. Example: I am not thirsty - "Neither am I." Without auxiliary verbs, again the verb "to do" is used - For example - "Neither do I." At the end of the English grammar lesson, I give you an exercise to test your understanding.

Present Perfect tense | Part 2 - Use and meaning
 
24:16
This is an English lesson to explain the meaning of the present perfect simple tense and how to use it. I also compare the present perfect to the past simple and explain the differences. The present perfect simple tense is in fact a past tense. We use it to describe an action or event at a non specified time in the past. Usually the action or event has an impact or connection with the present. Example: "David has broken his arm." News reports in the media often use the present perfect at the start of a report to give a general summary. We can use the present perfect with indefinite time adverbs (ever, never, once, before, so far, already, yet, etc) Some common uses of this verb tense are as follows: - to describe experience we have acquired, example "I have learned Japanese." - to describe how a situation has changed or evolved over time, example "The price of bread has increased." - to describe an event that we are expecting or waiting to happen, example "He still hasn't found a job." We can also use the present perfect to describe several actions at different unspecified times in the past. Example: "I have read this book four times." With some specific types of verbs, we can also use the present perfect to express the duration of an action or event. We can do this with "for" or "since." Examples: "I have had this computer for 2 years." Or "I have had this computer since 2012." We can limit the period of the past with unfinished time expressions like: in the last week, this week, today. At the end of this English grammar lesson, I explain the main differences between the present perfect and the past simple tense. The accent in the video is a British English accent.

Examples of points in time are: yesterday, last week, 5 days ago, 2010 and many more. We often use these 2 words when answering a question like "How long have you been doing something?" In this English lesson with subtitles, I also show you some common mistakes and I correct them. At the end of the video, there is a quiz to test your understanding.
