How to Speak English Better | Learn English Live 39 with Steve Ford

 

Hello! Hello! Hello everybody, welcome to your English lesson. Today I'm going to be talking about some things that many English Learners have difficulty using: neither and so, double negatives, subject-verb agreement and conditional sentences. Of all these grammar points, the one that I want to talk about the most is neither and so. It's a grammar point that a lot of people have studied once or twice. They understand it and then they put it in a drawer somewhere and forget about it. Then when they come to use it, they don't know how to use it. So for example:

John: I'm hungry

Jane: So do I. (incorrect)

This is a very common mistake, one that I see every day. whenever you're using the verb be then you should use so am I. In my video Lesson above you will learn much more.
