All Expressions

Share this with your friends

Today, let’s take a look at some different words that we use together with the word “all”:

All of

Nowadays, we use all of with object pronouns (me, you, him, her, us, them, it). When we use all with nouns we don’t need to use of.

A pizzaThe pizza looks nice. I want to eat all of it.

All of me loves all of you

All of my friends are coming over today.

All the time

All the time has the same meaning as Always. The difference is where you need to use it in your sentences

Keys left at home.I always forget my keys.
I forget my keys all the time.

At all

We use at all mostly in negative sentences when we want to emphasize some things.

Hungry woman.I’m hungry. I haven’t eaten at all today.

At all times

At all times is a more formal way of saying always. I mostly hear it in instructions, rules or laws.

Airport.Dear passengers, please keep your tickets and your documents with you at all times!

Go all out

to go all out means to do your best to get something.

We’ll go all out to protect our families.

Of all time

Of all time is used with superlatives when we talk about the best, greatest, favourite people or things regardless of their age.

Sean Connery.I think Sean Connery is the best James Bond actor of all time.

Now that we’ve taken a quick look at these expressions, let’s practice them!

I’ve recently traveled to another country by plane. I am no fan of flying, I really get nervous before a flight and I forget something when going through customs all the time. This time, I almost forgot my passport, you can imagine how awkward it was for me. What about you? Let us know in the comments what you forget all the time and see you next week! 🙂
