  • This is everyday grammar.

  • I'm and I'm Rossiya.

  • You know, English is not a difficult language.

  • Everyone can learn it.

  • I'm not sure I agree with you.

  • Why not?

  • Some words?

  • Air difficult to learn.

  • Consider the words everyone and anyone.

  • Oh, those are tricky.

  • What's the difference?

  • Let's find out.

  • First, let's cover anyone and any body.

  • These two words are interchangeable.

  • You could say, Has anyone seen my keys or has anybody seen my keys?

  • They would both be correct.

  • Some language experts say anyone is a little more formal and is used in academic writing more often than anybody.

  • Okay, Does the same apply to everyone and everybody?

  • Yes, it does.

  • Now.

  • I guess there is some difference between anyone and everyone.

  • Yes, there is.

  • Let's take the following sentence as an example.

  • Everyone likes singing here.

  • The meaning is that every person likes to say.

  • Now if we said, Does anyone like singing?

  • That would refer to one person or war, but not necessarily all the people makes us.

  • Yes, it does.
