Mrs Mark, i have a question "What is the most recommended book to get many expressions ini English?"
English with Max (9 days ago)
Personally I think it's best to learn expressions gradually and in context. I don't think books with lists of expressions are that useful. ;)

One thing that would really cool, is you making a video speaking with regular speed, so we can measure our real listening skills. 😘

I've already done a couple ;). This one, for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksAeZrALn_8 And in the beginning of this one I speak at my regular speed (even though I "occasionally" speak faster in real life): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inuSCkzUvyA

Hi, thanks a lot. Is there any reason you did not mention "pardon me " in this video?
Leila BahariKia (4 months ago)
English with Max :)) I didn't know that. Thanks 🙏🏻
English with Max (4 months ago)
You're welcome! I suppose because nowadays it's not as common as "(I'm) sorry". But you can use it. For example, used in the right context it can mean: "Can you please repeat that?" However, it's also what we say if we fart or burp ;).

I find that all that formality makes too much of a fuss about a minor failure to hear something. I’ve never said anything but ‘Say that again’ or ‘Hmm?’ and the right intonation and facial expression avoid all offence. It may be advisable for foreigners to err on the side of politeness though.
English with Max (4 months ago)
Yes, sometimes we do go overboard :). But I agree - I think in general it's good to err on the side of "too polite". I've often had students just use an abrupt "What?" when I know they didn't mean to be rude. And I also err on the politeness side if I don't know the person. :)

What's the difference between I plan to do something and I am planing to do something?
Sunkara Eliya (4 months ago)
No you are not quite right.plan to do means intend to do or expect to do something. If you plan to do some thing means you intend to do something you don't need to put any effort into it.if are planning to do something means you are expecting to do something that means you need to put some effort into it.ex:I plan to go to school tomorrow. I am planning to go to Australia next month.i am planning to build a house here next year.plan on doing something is used especially in the past.i hadn't planned on going anywhere this morning. I hope that helps.
English with Max (4 months ago)
I'd say they're basically the same, but Correctrix is right - "I plan" tends to sound a little more formal and decisive. And normally we say "I'm planning on" instead of "I'm planning to". ;)
Correctrix (4 months ago)
Only ‘I plan to’ is possible for describing your regular plans. For your current plans, either is fine. ‘I plan’ sounds more formal and more decisive to me. Note that ‘planing’ is the present participle of ‘plane’. The participle for ‘plan’ is ‘planning’.

English with Max (4 months ago)
Oh, thank you so much again, Aparecido!
Youssef Mokadem (4 months ago)
That's great , I saw a native American said " my mistake , say again " . They are so direct .
English with Max (4 months ago)
I'm glad you liked it! It can be tricky to teach these things, because the context is often important, as well as your tone of voice. In some conversations it might be appropriate to say things that could be considered too direct in other situations...
