  • Hello, I'm Sam from BBC Learning English,

  • and today we're going to look at the difference

  • between 'all' and 'everybody' or 'everyone',

  • when talking about people.

  • In both cases we're talking about a group

  • of people and the meaning is simple.

  • They both mean '100% of the group'. But, how

  • we use them in a sentence is slightly different.

  • Let's look at these examples:

  • I invited some friends to a party this weekend.

  • They all came! Everybody came!

  • So, in the first example, we have

  • 'the subject + all + the main verb'.

  • It's not correct to say 'all came'

  • without using the subject 'they' before 'all'.

  • But if you want to make the sentence shorter,

  • you can use 'everybody' or 'everyone' as the subject

  • of the sentence - so,

  • 'everybody + the main verb'.

  • So I hope you 'all' understand and

  • 'everybody' will do the quiz now.
