[..YouTube..] the boss was talking with us but I could not listen because my coworkers were speaking out loud. I hate when that happen, partners with no education, hehehe. (I am not pretty sure whether “could not” means also “no podia”. thanks.

[..YouTube..] porque es ”he’s giving a talk tonight” y no ”he will be giving a talk tonight”

Saludos :)

[..YouTube..] Hola soy una nueva suscriptora tuya, tengo una duda cuales son la diferencia entre somebody someone, anybody anyone y nobody y no one? la verdad que no se cuando usar somebody y someone o si significa lo mismo y lo puedo usar cuando kiera!! Un besazo. por cierto de donde eres¿? Tienes unos ojos preciosos!!!

[..YouTube..] ¡Hola! Gracias por tus palabras. Soy de Alabama. Bueno esas palabras son muy, muy comunes y tienen muchísimos usos dependiendo del contexto. Acá no alcanzo a describirlas como se debe. Te recomiendo buscarla en Wordreference punto com y allí te saldrán cada uno de sus significados con sus respectivos ejemplos. Me cuentas cómo te va ¡Saludos!

[..YouTube..] Muchas gracias me has sido de gran ayuda creía que solo tenía un significado. Por cierto no me entero de las diferencias de el present perfect y el present perfect continuous. He visto muchos tutoriales y paginas de internet pero a la hora de hacer ejercicios no sé cual usar. Muchas gracias por contestar eres muy muy muy muy AMABLE!!!

[..YouTube..] Es muy común que se use el present simple continuous para referirse a un evento cercano en el futuro. Ej: “I’m having dinner at the Joneses tonight” ( podés decir esto aunque sean las 4 pm cuando estás hablando).

[..YouTube..] Gracias :)

[..YouTube..] De nada.

[..YouTube..] the boss was speaking with us, but I couldn´t hear because my partners were talking very loudly

[..YouTube..] Hello!!!

The chief was speaking to us but I couldn’t hear because my classmates were talking loudly.

[..YouTube..] Hello!!!

[..YouTube..] Estructuralmente estan bien. Pero he’s giving a talk tonight, es un tiempo que continua, osea un present continuous y el “he will be giving a talk tonight” es un tiempo futuro y no sabes si sucedera. El “will” se utiliza para cosas que no sabes si sucederan y el “be going to” para cosas que tú, si que estas seguro que sucederan en el futuro.

[..YouTube..] haber!. somebody=someone= alguien
nobody=no one= nadie
_estos significan lo mismo.
Somebody=someone no se utilizan en oraciones interrogativas.
Nobody= no one no se utiliza en oraciones negativas.

Y anyone=anybody són palabres especials porque, pero significan lo mismo.
anyone=anybody—->alguien cuando se hace una pregunta
—-->cualquiera en afirmativo
——> nadie en negracion, por esto no se puede utilizar nobody en negracion.

[..YouTube..] porque cuando dices He will be giving a talk tonight estas usando dos estructuras contrarias “will” te da el sentido de un plan, pero que puede ser modificado (no deberias entonces usar “tonight” solo decir he will give a talk o he will be giving a talk, sin una palabra q te de un momento especifico) y con He’s ginvg a talk tonight das la idea de un plan ya establecido con un momento especifico para su realizacion.

[..YouTube..] peruXXAntonyXX que amable que eres, la pregunta ni si quiera iba para tí y me has contestado. Muchisimas gracias ojala que el mundo estuviese lleno de gente tan amable, y me lo has explicado super bien, me lo he anotado en la libreta para repasarlo… No se si eres creyente pero…¡Que Dios te bendiga, amigo!

[..YouTube..] Sería genial que subieras la diferencia entre “To be like” y “To look like” para aquellos que la desconozcan. Enhorabuena por tu gran canal ^^

[..YouTube..] how do you pronounce talk? Talk o tak, thank you teacher I love you!!

[..YouTube..] en vez de talking va speaking… porque es una charla formal… y en vez de was talking va were talking… porque es plural…

[..YouTube..] Jessica, in this class you have used a wrong substantive: You said: “discursante”. This word doesn’t sound good. Better use these words: “orador” if one is giving a speech (discurso), or “conferenciante” is one is giving a talk (conferencia). The word discursante doesn’t appear in the dictionary of the real academia española. See you.

[..YouTube..] One question. El le contesto a su padre, se dice así : “He talked back to his father”

[..YouTube..] ¡Hola! Sí, talk back es contestar, en el contexto generalmente cuando no se debe por respeto.

[..YouTube..] Sorry, only a doubt. “I couldn’t listen” or “I couldn’t listen to” ?. I’m very happy watching your videos. thanks a lot from Argentina !

[..YouTube..] ¡Hola! En este caso es sin el “To” que significa “…a…”. “I Couldn’t Listen To…” quiere decir “No pude escuchar a…” En este caso no quiere decir “…a…” Solo “No pude escuchar” “I couldn’t listen.” ¡Saludos!
