English Grammar and Vocabulary - English Verbs of Motion

evgueny40 ru Russian Federation

I have always interested in verbs of motion in different languages and recently I have recorded an interview with Richard Coombes about this important topic.

Richard talks about English verbs of motion and compares them with the Russian system of verbs of motion.

I believe that this conversation can be very useful for all English learners.

    We decided to have another conversation "SOMETHING MORE ABOUT OTHER-ANOTHER" by adding new examnples and including two expressions - "each other" and "one another' which can confuse some English learners.

    I don't know if i should be embarrassed or proud that I don't know what any of these are in English.

      What do you mean, my dear Leuro...?

      If you are really "an English native speaker", you aren't probably interested in English podcasts, maybe rather in your target languages French and German.

      But if you forgot something in English Grammar, you can of course open the link and remember something that you've forgotten while you were learning difficult foreign languages.

      Good luck with all your languages!

        I don't know what 'verbs of motion' are. I am guessing things like 'to go' and 'to move' or something ?

          'Verbs of motion' is a general linguistic term of the verbs which describe different kinds of the motion, for example in English: to go, to race, to move, to set off/out, to stroll, to fly, to drive, to run, to jog, to trot etc.

          They are quite difficult in any language, and my friend Richard gives some interesting examples of their use.

    Last time we discussed with Richard about the modal verbs and expressions in English-

    WHAT ARE THE MAIN MEANINGS OF MODAL VERBS.

    There will be three parts.

    In the first part we talk about the expression of permission, ability, and obligation:
