Hi Tim,

You’re the teacher that help me a lot.
I really think (that) you are great!
(Are these sentences correct?)

Their correct, Irene! Just a little correction: The teacher that helps(with ‘s’) me. Great job!

I want (that) you see this.

Thank you for participating here, Paulo. The verb “want” is different in Portuguese than in English. It uses a different structure. So you should say:
– I want you to see this.
I’ll teach you this verb better in another episode; ok?

I think (that) I’m getting hungry!
I hope (that) you enjoy this lesson.
I’m the student that you asked.

Great job! Thank you for participating!

I hope you forgive some occasional mistakes I make

Very good, Sergio! Thank you for participating!

She is the girl that was singing in the rain last night!

Good job, Mario. Thank you for participating!

I think (that) Iwill learn English!

You sure will, Vera!

Hi, Tim!

May you help me with this doubt…?
Is it correct to say – I hope you to participate; or, – I expect you to come to my party; or
– I want you to leave a reply or we may just say as you said: I hope you participate, I expect you come or I want you leave a reply … I ask that because I allways use “to” before the verbs, tks!

Hello, Letícia! The verb hope doesn’t use “to”, but the verbs expect and want do; so it should be:

– I hope you participate.
– I expect you to come.
– I want you to leave a reply.

Right now I am in USA, and it’s the best way  to learn English than that I was before

In what city are you, Pedro?

I’m sure (that) you are wrong

Hello Tim
I hope (that) I´ve learned how to use “that” in English.
But I was in doubt about the word “home”. I learned “em casa” at home.
Please, when I use only “home” and when I use “at home”.
I´m studying English because I want to be an English teacher, and that´s why I like these tips and I really need your help.

Hello, Rosane! Thank you for your question. You’re right, we do say “at home”. I guess there are some “ready-made” sentences or more informal sentences that don’t use “at” with “home”. Let me give some examples:
– He’s at home. (Ele está em casa).
– He wasn’t home when you called (informal); He wasn’t home when you called (more informal).
– I’m home! (Cheguei!); He’s home! (Ele chegou!) – expressão comum para se dizer que alguém chegou (em casa).
– I leave home at 7 a.m. and get home at 6 p.m.

I think that I’ll learn english in a lot of months.

I’m sure you will!

I hope (that) you feel happy.

I do, Danielle. Thank you! 😉

Hi Tim!
I hope (that) you understand me.
Lebron James thought (that) he would win the game.
(is it correct?).
Bye. Tks

That’s correct! Great job!

Great tip. I tought (that) I knew how to use that pronoun, but I didn’t. Now I can use it correctly. You are the teacher that explained it in the best way.

So glad to hear that, José Luiz! Great job with your sentences!

Hello, Tim. thanks for your tip. Could I say: “You are the student (who) called me” instead of “that” in this case?

Yes, you can, Valéria. “That” is more informal in this case.

Relative pronouns. Good explanation Tim (as usual). I hope (that) you have a great week! Thank you Tim. Take care! 🙂

I hope (that) I won’t oversleep tomorrow morning, because we have English class!!!
Right teacher!!

You’d better not!!

Hi, Tim.
I hope (that) one day I can go to the United States . This sentence is correct ?

Yes, that is correct, Enilde. Thank you for participating.

I always noticed this change to use THAT but only now I understood! THAT is important just in case it be a subjet! Everybody knows (that) you are an excellente teacher. This was the explanation that was missing. Thank you!

So good you understood it now, Marilene! Great job with your sentences!

Hi Tim how are you doing?
Where can i check on your website for a list of verbs thats use ” to ” before the verb?

Hi Tim,
What an awesome explanation.
Thanks a lot for the tip.

Thank you, Gabriela! So glad you liked it!

I am the student that learned this lesson.

Good job, Anelise!

And glad you liked the flowers! 😉

I hope (that) you can help me

I’ll do my best!

I hope (that) to learn English, I have studied. But I need to study more. (Is correct?)

Hello, Crstiane! You can say:

Thank you Tim!
