  • Hi, everybody.

  • Welcome back to ask Alicia the Weekly Siri's where you ask me questions and I answer them.

  • Maybe first question this week comes from Mohamed El Daily.

  • Hi, mama.

  • Um, Mohamed says, Hi, Alicia.

  • When writing in any academic exam like some kind of criticism or literary analysis, is it better to use I or we like if the speaker wanted to talk about his opinion?

  • Okay, if you're writing about your personal opinion, your individual opinion, use I if you are writing to represent a group of people like a company or a laboratory or a research group or a team of some kind, use we.

  • So if it's your opinion use, I like I disagree with or I strongly believe, that if you're writing for a company like you might see in company e mails, for example, you can use we like we appreciate your continued business or we deeply apologize for the misunderstanding.

  • So use we If you're representing a group, use I.

  • If you're talking about your personal opinion, I hope that this helps you.

  • Thanks for the question.

  • Okay, let's move on to your next question.

  • Next question comes from newer eldeen.

  • Hi, Newer.

  • Newer says Hi, Alicia.

  • I have a question.

  • What is the difference between specifically and especially?

  • Nice question.

  • Okay, First, let's look at two example sentences Number one.

  • I love music, especially jazz.

  • Two.

  • I'm a singer, specifically a jazz singer.

  • Okay, so in the first sentence, which uses especially we see a category introduced music, the speaker says, I love music.

  • Then when they say especially, it's like they're highlighting their focusing in on this one kind of music they really, really like.

  • So the speaker saying, I love music generally, and inside this category there's one thing that's extra special to me.

  • I use especially or we use, especially to communicate that highlight there.

  • So the other things are great also, but especially means I have kind of a special place for that thing.

  • In contrast, then, part two, we have this opening sentence.

  • I'm a singer.

  • Then specifically, I'm a jazz singer.

  • So we can think of this again is like a category, so I'm a singer singer is the job here specifically, I'm a jazz singer, so this means the other types of singers do not apply.

  • So this person is not a pop singer, not a rock singer, not a blues singer, a jazz singer.

  • So in contrast with the especially point, which is like, Everything is okay and there's this one thing that's extra great.

  • The jazz singer here is saying I'm a jazz singer on Lee, so all these other things don't apply to me.

  • I'm a jazz singer.

  • We used specifically to narrow something down even more So we have this broad category.

  • It gets even more narrow, like we have a very like clear understanding of exactly what type of singer the speaker is.

  • So if you want to show like a highlight in something like, I love desserts, especially gelato, so you can use it to talk about those sorts of categories and something special inside that category, that's what especially is for specifically is used to make a very narrow distinction.

  • So I hope that this helps you Thanks very much for an interesting question.

  • Okay, let's move on to your next question.

  • Next question comes from Mustafa Joel.

  • Hi, Mustafa Mustafa says hi Alicia.

  • My question is what's correct?

  • He and me are going to school or he and I are going to school.

  • The correct answer is he and I are going to school.

  • So a rule that you can follow is if you're using this person and I or person and me structure when you're using it as the subject of a sentence used the and I pattern like he and I are going to school.

  • She and I are best friends.

  • He and I left early when you're using it as the object of a sentence, However, use wth E and me pattern.

  • So person and me, like my parents, bought my brother in me presence.

  • The manager told my colleague in me that he was quitting.

  • So in sum, if you're using this as the subject used, the and I pattern, if you're using it as the object used the and knee pattern in your original sentence and I is correct, I hope that this helps you.

  • Thanks for the question.

  • Okay, let's move on to your next question.

  • Next question is from Sao Roth.

  • Hi, Sarah.

  • Sarov says, Hi, Alicia.

  • I'm from India.

  • I want to know the difference between will and would.

  • Okay, ah, quickly Will is used to make a decision in the moment of speaking.

  • A great example is when you're at a restaurant and you look at the menu and you think, OK, I'll have a salad or I'll have a beer So we use will a lot to talk about, like decisions we make in the moment.

  • We also use will to talk about things we're not sure about for the future.

  • Like when you make a guess about something far in the future, like in 1000 years, I think humans will all be gone.

  • Or next week I think I'll see a movie so you're not so sure about your plans you can use will to talk about that.

  • Then Wood is used to talk about unrealized situations.

  • A great example is like, If I were you, I would do something like if I were you, I would find a new job.

  • Or if I were you, I would get a hobby.

  • So would expresses an unreal situation.

  • We use it a lot in something like advice, so wood is unreal and Will is used to kind of make a guess about something we don't use will for like advice.

  • We use wood to give sort of thes ideas about, like suggestions, recommendations.

  • You're sharing some kind of information.

  • Will is more like you're talking about Maybe a decision that you might make, or maybe a guest that you have.

  • So these air a few differences between Will and wood.

  • For a couple more points, you can check out the will and going to video on our channel for some more information about will.

  • Ah, and you can also take a look at this video about wood that's on the channel too.

  • So I hope that this helps you.

  • Thanks very much for the question.

  • All right, let's look at our next question.

  • Next question comes from equal.

  • Preet Kaur.

  • Hi.

  • Equal Preach 12 Rate says Hi, Alicia.

  • I want to know how to use the word, apparently, in conversation.

  • Okay.

  • We typically use the word, apparently at the beginning or at the end of a sentence.

  • It has the meaning of it.

  • Seems for example, apparently I left my laundry outside in the rain or we have to go to a company meeting today.

  • Apparently.

  • So this means the speaker did not get this information directly.

  • The speaker learned it from some other source, so it's often like a surprise or like it seems something is happening.

  • Or it seems I did this.

  • So if the speaker does not use, apparently it's like a report.

  • You know, I left my laundry outside in the rain, but using apparently means someone else told you that information.

  • Or maybe you found out about it somehow.

  • So it sounds kind of a little bit sarcastic in some situations.

  • Or it's like you learned that somehow, and you're kind of surprised about it.

  • So this is how we use, apparently in situations.

  • Think of it as like it seems, but for a whole situation, like it seems I left my laundry outside.

  • Or it seems that at the end of this episode, so this is how we use, apparently in everyday conversation.

  • So that is everything that I have for this week.
