Lesson: Other vs Another

Hi, I’m Joel. I’m from the United States and I teach conversational English on Skype.
Right now, I want to talk to you about the difference between two different words. The words “other” and “another.” The word “another” goes before singular words and “other” goes before plural words.
So, for example… “I would like to learn another language.” Language here is singular. So it gets “another” before it. “I’d like to learn another language.” If you want to make it plural, you would say, “I would like to learn other languages.” Other languages – plural.
Some more examples: You can say, “I’m looking for another job.” – singular. Or, “Do you know of any other jobs out there?” Other jobs – plural.
Let’s see… “I would like to make another friend from Canada.” Another friend – singular. Or, “Do you have any friends…” Excuse me, “Do you have any other friends from Canada?” Other friends.
Or, “I would like to move to another house.” Or, “Are there any other houses available in this area?” Other houses – plural.
Okay, I hope that you learned something today and that you can incorporate this into your English conversations. And if you would like to practice your English with me, I sell conversational English lessons on Skype.
