  1. I have found out this channel and I am pleasantly surprised because I think it will be interesting for my learning, thanks a lot.

  2. Sir/Ma'am
    1)work has to be done
    2)players have to be awarded
    3)the blub has to be changed
    4)the parcel must be sent
    These sentences are coming under 'passive infinite' or?
    Normally I know these meanings but I got confused when I saw
    ' passive infinitive'. Is this same?

  3. Thanks for lesson, You are appriciated. I have learned english pretty well but still I have a problem with some words which are very distinctive because there is not any meaning in turn.

    Would you mind explaining what does mean "Rather". (Please explain every meaning.)

    And again, I don't know how to thank because you are doing great job for learners which is the most beautiful thing ever exist…

  4. I can't watch the channel, with this "Clare". Only jane is acceptable.

  5. Stop, I've seen some people write "gonna", "wanna", "getta".

  6. As usually, I like your lesson because you speak slowly and clearly. Awesome, I understand you. I think you speak faster in real life?
    Thanks a lot for all Andrew and go on like that…

  7. Speak like a native from…There are hundreds of different native ways of speaking. This whole speak-like-a-native talk is nonsense. Not to mention that in many cases one should NEVER speak like a native. I am a native and I know many non-native speakers who speak better than many native speakers I know.

  8. I often watch your every single video and it's informative .I am really grateful to u .

  9. Andrew Why don't you read short stories and at the end you make some questions about it? Like a listening practice. ? Amazing video??
