    As a native English speaker studying how to teach ESL, I am really enjoying your lessons and picking up some great ideas about how to approach the material when teaching. I do want to point out, however, that I see one small mistake in sentence #8: it should read "John was born IN the summer of 1969. You even said it correctly when you went over the sentence, but "in" is missing on the board. Thought I'd bring that to your attention, because perhaps you can annotate the video after the fact. In the meantime, thanks for these lessons. They are inspiring for me!

    thanks a lot for your fruitful lessons

  3. Matthew Riegler says:

    Thank you for the video. Please look at number three: "His family go to prison to visit him on Sundays." I think the verb "go" should be "goes".

  4. Angela M says:

    Hi sir, In no 8 can we use "in" or it depends on meaning?
    John was born IN summer of 1969. is this correct?

  5. Ulya Rog says:

    There are far more rules about THE article than you mentioned in this video)….Use The with:
    collections of lakes (such as the Great Lakes)
    mountain chains
    references on the globe (such as the Equator, the North Pole)
    geographic regions (such as the Northwest, the Middle East)
    bridges (except Tower Bridge)
    the Sun, the Moon
    extraordinary works of art or architecture (such as the Mona Lisa, the Colosseum, the Great Wall of China, and the Taj Mahal)
    .And many more rules)))

    can you tell the function 'the` is doing in the sentence: the early bird catches the worm.

    I teach English in Madrid (Spain) and I strongly recommend your videos to my students.
    As many of them don’t follow this wise piece of advice (another one missed out! ;-)), I use them in my classes as a support to my teaching. Hope you don’t mind!
    A million thanks and congratulations for your superb video-lessons!
    Your videos are perfectly balanced (duration, depth, rythm of the explanations and examples) for intermediate level students and higher levels I’d say. A perfect learning recipe, so! By the way, is this end position for ‘so’ gramatically correct? 😉
    With my deepest gratitude for your excellent work!

    Thank you Stu! Thats a great lesson down here!

  13. Francis Costa says:

    "I am going to THE cinema" Is it correct? Why should I put the "THE" if the meaning is the primary purpose?
