Free English video lesson: “Never Ever”

 

In this lesson, I explain how to use the words “never” and “ever”, giving many examples. Please see below for more:

 

Learn English: Never Ever?

 

Use “ever” and “never” before the verb (after the pronoun / tense construct)

 

“Have you ever been there / done that?” (Have you once in your life?)

 

“Have you ever been there?” “No, I’ve never been there.”

 

“Have you ever been there?” “Yes, once.”

 

“I’ve never been there” = “I haven’t been there once”

 

Ever = all time

 

“I’ve only ever been there once (in my whole life)”

 

“Ever” for emphasis:

 

“It’s the best place I’ve ever been.”

 

“That was the best film I’ve ever seen.”

 

Do not ever do that = Never do that

 

Don’t ever, ever do that = Never ever do that (use extra “ever” for emphasis)

 

“I’ve never, ever been there” (emphasising that you haven’t been there once)
