    When do we use "shall" in English?

    When do we use "shall" in English?

    A lot of English learners are curious about the word “shall.”

    Is it the same thing as “will”?

    When exactly do we use it?

    I’ll answer those questions in today’s lesson.
    I hope this lesson has helped you understand when people sometimes use “shall” and what it means, as well as the alternatives which are becoming more and more common nowadays, especially in American English.
     
    If you’ve got a question about a word or a phrase, please let me know, because I love getting ideas from students about tips and lessons to create in the future.
     
    And if you want to take your English to the next level, check out my courses and e-books because they can help you improve your speaking, understand better when listening, expand your vocabulary, and so much more!

    How to say & use WONDER and WANDER

    How to say & use WONDER and WANDER

    Today I'm going to quickly clear up confusion between the words wander and wonder.

    These are two completely different words, but sometimes English learners mix them up because of their similar spelling and pronunciation.
    For more simple and clear lessons about the differences between confusing words in English, get my e-book, 600+ Confusing English Words Explained!

    These are words that English learners often ask me about, or often make mistakes with – and when you read this e-book, you can avoid those mistakes and use these words correctly.

    Congratulations ON, FOR, TO...?

    Congratulations ON, FOR, TO...?

    Today we’ve got a really interesting question from a student:

    In English, do we say “congratulations ON or FOR your anniversary”?

    Listen to the lesson to find out  :-)
    When you’re learning English, it can be hard to feel like you’ve really mastered the grammar of the language. There are so many rules, so many exceptions, and the grammar might be very different from how it works in your native language.
     
    At Espresso English we’ve got something to help you at every level:
    Our Basic & Intermediate Grammar E-Books will give you a strong foundation. Our Advanced Grammar Course will really help you reach a high level. So if you’re confused by grammar, if you hate grammar, or if you just want to make sure your grammar is good and you’re not making mistakes all over the place, check out our basic, intermediate, and advanced grammar lessons!

    20 vocabulary words for LIGHTS

    20 vocabulary words for LIGHTS

    Today let's expand your vocabulary by learning 20 different words for lights - from lamps to lighthouses to lightning (which you shouldn't get confused with lighting).

    As you learn each word, repeat it after me to practice your pronunciation.
    Do you ever have trouble remembering the English vocabulary words you learn?

    It's very common. In fact, lots of students write to me asking what to do about this problem. I have several tips, but one important thing to think about is how you originally learn the word.

    Is it from a word list, textbook, or dictionary? Well, that's a good start... but your memory will be even more powerful if there's an image - a picture - associated with the new word.

    That's how we learn vocabulary as children. We don't yet know how to read, but we learn to associate new words with the objects we see.

    That's why there are lots of pictures and illustrations in my Vocabulary Builder Courses!

    Each level of the course will teach you more than 1,000 useful words in a simple, efficient way.
