  • Hello, guys. Time for a quick listening test today.

  • Listen to me very carefully. 'Whose mother is this?'

  • Now what am I saying? 'Who's'? or 'Whose'?

  • What do you think? If you don't know, or if you have difficulty

  • with 'who's' and 'whose', This video is for you.

  • Keep on watching. Hi, guys. My name is Fanny.

  • And in this video, I'm going to explain to you the difference between 'who's'

  • 'who + apostrophe + s' And 'whose' in one word, 'whose'.

  • Now it's very simple but it's very confusing, because they both sound the same.

  • So even native speakers make a lot of mistakes. Okay?

  • So listen to me very carefully. It's very simple.

  • 'who's' 'who + apostrophe + s' is the contraction

  • of the verb 'to be'. So it's actually 'who is'.

  • If I say, 'who's on the phone?', it's 'who is on the phone'.

  • 'whose' in one word 'whose' is the possessive.

  • It means who does it belong to. For example, 'whose bag is this?' meaning

  • 'who does this bag belong to?' And you can say, 'It's my bag.'

  • 'It's your bag.' It's a possessive.

  • If you really don't know just try and replace the 's' or 'se' with the verb to be.

  • And see if it works. If it works, then it's the contraction of

  • the verb 'to be'. Let's see together with a few examples.

  • First, 'Who's calling?' Which one is it?

  • Is it the contraction of the verb 'to be' or is it the possessive?

  • Can you say, 'Who is calling?' Does that work?

  • Yes, it does. So it is the contraction of the verb to be

  • 'Who is calling?' Now a second example, well, Let's take our

  • very first example. 'Whose mother is this?'

  • Which one is it? Is it the verb 'to be'?

  • Or Is it the possessive? Can you say 'Who is mother is this?'

  • No. You can't. It's incorrect.

  • It's the possessive. 'Whose mother is this?'

  • It's my mother. It's your mother.

  • It's his mother. Okay? Now one final example.

  • 'Who's in the house?' Come on, guys.

  • Which one is it? Is it the verb 'to be' or is it the possessive?

  • It's obviously the verb 'to be'. You can say 'Who is in the house?'

  • Okay? I really hope you understand the difference.

  • It's a very common mistake. But it's not difficult to fix, okay?

  • So keep practicing. Practice makes perfect.
