I totally agree about translating at times! It can be very effective, if time consuming. As long as one goes to the trouble of finding the equivalent expressions between L1 and the target language, instead of just translating word for word which is almost always doomed to failure. I practise this all the time and it has stood me in good stead, especially at advanced levels. It was about time someone stood up for translation, instead of rejecting it out of hand, as is usually the case with most YouTube teachers. Thanks for the wonderful video, all tips are valid in my experience. Keep up the great work!

Thank you very much :). Yes, I wholeheartedly agree! As long as you're not translating word for word, it can be very useful. I think people are often too black and white about things in language learning. E.g. by saying that immersion is always good no matter the level, or that bilingual dictionaries are evil 😉.

Nice Video and good advice. The preposition-thing i think is almost impossible to learn for a non-native speaker. There is no logic to it so you just have to learn it by heart and its just impossible to do it for every word. It reminds me of the german article "der, die, das". A non-native speaker will never learn that 100%, so i think we just have to accept that its not possible to be perfect and accept it. That doesnt mean that we should not try to get better every day but it can remind us to just relax a little and to accept imperfection.
English with Max (6 months ago)
I couldn't agree more! We can always try to improve, but our aim shouldn't be to be perfect, or to sound like a native. Communication and the ability to express ideas are most important.

Hi Max! Thank you for the class! You look nice 😍 BTW, what are those sounds right at the beginning of the video? I believe it's an animal/bird but I have few ideas what it might be. A swan/duck? Anyway, it was funny :) Thanks again, little Max!!
English with Max (6 months ago)
But they do sound a bit like ducks or geese! 😂
Borka Siamese (6 months ago)
Oh yes, sea lions indeed :)) Thanks for answering!

I've been waiting for your video. These steps are really helpful. I used to pay attention to the new phrases, vocabulary and taken note of them but revision is pending! Really appreciate your short and powerful class. The punctuation marks are so attractive (?!). Thanks Max.
lal c (6 months ago)
Thanks for your reply. I've been learning English for few years and I think I'm bit confident while writing. But I'm not yet satisfied with my speaking skill. I have to find out whether it is lack of ideas or failure on construction of the ideas properly into English. Your suggestions are helping and it is really motivating too.
English with Max (6 months ago)
Thanks for your lovely comment :). Yes, some revision is important ;), but it looks like you already have a very good level!
Ehsan Khan (6 months ago)
hey Max! I was absent for some time sorry. Good techniques, helpful. please make vids on single and double L words which are confusing. And BTW, love your earrings, you wore them after long. :)
English with Max (6 months ago)
Thank you :). Which words exactly do you mean? Could you give some examples?
Sanjay Lohia (6 months ago)
Max, which one of the following sentences is correct? (1) Try and do these tasks as soon as possible. (2) Try to do these tasks as soon as possible. In the first sentence, I have used 'and do'; whereas, in the second one I have used 'to do'. Please clarify. Thanks.
English with Max (6 months ago)
They both mean the same thing, but I would say "try and" is a little more colloquial. ;)
moussab alqaissy (6 months ago)

esm325 (6 months ago)
Hi, Max! I'm very glad to watch you again. Explain, please, if i want to say "Thank you for this video", can I use instead of it "Thank you for the video". Will be "this" and "the" interchangeable in this case?
esm325 (6 months ago)
Thank you for your answer! After it I understand English a little bit more :)
English with Max (6 months ago)
I'm glad to be back! Yes, in this case you can use them interchangeably ;).

🇫🇷 Bonjour, J'ai étrangement découvert ta chaine grâce à ton commentaire sous la vidéo de Cyprien. J'ai regardé ta vidéo et j'ai pu comprendre et apprendre beaucoup de chose en anglais. Je m'abonne tout de suite à ta chaine et je laisse un pousse bleu. Merci pour ta vidéo. 💘

A really useful lesson as always! And I totally agree with you; translation has an unfair bad reputation when it comes to learning a foreign language!
English with Max (6 months ago)
Thanks, Alfonso :). And yes! In the right situation I think it can be very useful.

Hello Max, Please transcription .Thank you very much, from Turkey
English with Max (6 months ago)
I did subtitles for it. You just need to click the subtitles button (on a computer), or the three dots in the corner then "captions" on a phone or tablet. 😉

Thank you for the lesson! When I write, for some reason I do not notice my mistakes, although I usually know how to write correctly. It's just a mystery.

Hi Max, I'm an Aussie who's always spoken English. However I have a question: When referring to the possessive on people's names, we add an apostrophe and a 's' (Tom's car), and we pronounce the 's' sound. However, when the name ends with a 's' (for example Ross) what do we do? I always understood that you add an apostrophe without an extra s for correct grammar (Ross' car). But how do you pronounce it? (Rosses car or Ross car). I hear public speakers say both, but which is correct?
English with Max (6 months ago)
Hmm... interesting question. I personally would say "Rosses car", but I don't think I would flinch if I heard "Ross car". Considering there doesn't even seem to be a set rule for the written form, there probably isn't one either for the spoken! Hope that helps! Check out 1b and 1c: https://www.grammarbook.com/punctuation/apostro.asp
Thank you Max!
English with Max (6 months ago)
I'd love to one day... but I just started learning Portuguese, so I'm afraid it will have to wait :(.
Maybe you want to start learning Russian language? :) What do you think about it?
aimanno everyday English (6 months ago)
Thanks for your efforts. If I stope making mistakes, that means I am dead. I make mistakes because I am alive.
Borka Siamese (6 months ago)
Thank you Aimanno and Max for answering! 🤓👌
English with Max (6 months ago)
Borka Siamese Good question! In my opinion both ways are acceptable ;).
aimanno everyday English (6 months ago)
Borka Siamese Don't be confused any more because the languages generally and particularly English don't admit by strict rules. I think dear Max agree with me. Thank you for commenting under mine.
Borka Siamese (6 months ago)
English with Max, Hi Max! I am sorry to interfere! Do we need the article "a" in front of the phrase "part of smth"? I used to use it, then I learnt somewhere we do not need it, now I am confused again 😭
aimanno everyday English (6 months ago)
English with Max you want to stop my life, so you want kill me. You can't make that to me. I going to make mistakes.
