Hi guys! I loved this lesson. Thank you so much! Pronunciation still is hard for me. I need more practice!... and I like this advice: Lisen English and repeat, you can imitate the "American accent" :D see you next Saturday, bye!

Thanks so much for your comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the lesson. And listening + repeating is a great way to imitate an accent. Keep up the good work! See you Saturday. 😊

I can't understand how native English speakers have so many problems with this. The fact that you pronounce almost all of them different (except for story) is what makes it easy for me to remember it. I only get confused when I use the web site where my friend works and they say something like "the word literally doesn't have to mean in physical terms, then cite sources sowing that the word 'literally' has been used to mean 'figuratively' for over 100 years." He works for Oxford English Dictionary in England. He's a lexicographer; he puts words in dictionaries. It sounds boring but he makes it seem interesting. Still, I can't get used to using 'literally' to mean 'in a figurative sense.' But OED is always trying to be on the cutting edge of how the language is being used.

Thanks for sharing with us Vicki. You're friend is correct about the use of "literally." I remember reading about that in an article a while back. Hope you have a nice day! 😊

Sir, which sentence is correct? 1) I pity him bullied by people. 2) I pity him being bullied by people.
Interactive English (7 days ago)
Thanks for your comment. The correct one is #2. It's a passive sentence so we need the verb "to be." For more on passive vs active, you can check out our lesson: https://youtu.be/qRqbAvO9uNQ

Sir, what's the difference between a collapsing building and collapsed building? I can't find the word " Collapsing" in the dictionary.Thank's
fong beng (7 days ago)
Thank you sir
Interactive English (7 days ago)
Thanks for commenting. That's a good question. When I think of a "collapsing building," I think of a building that's neglected or in decay. A word that comes to mind would be "dilapidated." When I think of a "collapsed building," then I think the building has already fallen and is in rubble. Hope this helps! 👍

How much money does he have ? How much money does he has ? Please tell me which one is correct
Interactive English (8 days ago)
Thanks for commenting. How much money does he have? 👍 The main verb "have" should agree with the subject "he." 😊

I really appreciate your lessons!🙊It was good to see you! Would you mind checking the following sentences? •John didn't come today, *maybe* he is sick •John didn't come today, he *may be* sick If they're not correct please let me know if they're used in different contexts. Thank you in advance👍
Gisele Estrada (8 days ago)
Thank you so much, teacher! You're the best!🤓
Interactive English (8 days ago)
Hi Gisele. Thanks for commenting & sharing those sentences. Both are correct and you used "maybe" and "may be" perfectly. The meaning is the same and this will help others distinguish between these commonly confused words. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! 😊
Great lesson. Thanks. The one I didn't know before was Maybe .I used to use it like two words.

Thanks Sir. I was enjoying. Sir, I was confusing some of the words like 1. Personnel -- Personal. 2. Principal -- Principle. 3. Much -- Many. 4. Would -- Could. 5. Still -- Till. That's it.
