Getting ready to serve some spooky stuff up to your students? ‘Alone’ and ‘Lonely’ are two handy words for ghost stories. In fact they’re not just handy for ghost stories. Hopefully your students will find them useful any time of year.

As always, the video is available with a clickable transcript over at www.simpleenglishvideos.com. Enjoy!

  1. Though changes in pronunciation have obscured the fact, alone is historically from all one; if you are alone, the one of you is all there is. Lonely is from lone, a shortened form of alone which now means ‘singular, one of a kind’, as in lone wolf or the Lone Ranger.

  2. Great to see you John and thanks for adding this background.
