      hi ronnie how r u… i’m your fan. help me?

      Saturday, February 2nd 2013

      I do have a question!
      The is used when both persons know of “what” they are talking about, right? So why you have to say, “I will meet you in AN hour, instead of: I will meet you in THE hour.” in that case, both, speaker and listener know of what hour they are talking about. :) Thanks and I love your classes, you’re cool!!!

      Tuesday, May 21st 2013

hello how do we use articles before adjectives ? can you explain please ,’an emty box’ ‘a big house’

Friday, July 13th 2012

    Basically, the same rules apply with adjectives!

    Thursday, July 26th 2012

Ronnieee!! :D
I really love and enjoy your English lessons! :D
I think you have got the best technique to teach English because you are uniting the most correct and funniest words or speeches with the easier and funner examples! (I do love it!)
I love being your pupil! Believe me!
I think you have got to create a twitter account, obviously you have got to share it with us(But I think you cannot do it right here, can you?), and then we can follow you at there! What do you think about it? Look, you could keep yourself teaching English over there! :D
Do you have got one?
well, I have been pleased to meet you honey ;)
see you later!

Saturday, July 14th 2012

I want generally describe how does a device work. It consists of two elements: a cutter and a pin. Is “the” correct in the phrase: “as a cutter penetrates a working material, the pin recesses” if the reader knows (or at least should know) that the pin is a part of that device and I do not mean any other pin but this specific pin in this device even if I didn’t mention this specific pin before?

Saturday, July 14th 2012

    Yes, I would say the pin in this situation!

    Thursday, July 26th 2012

It’s actually a great and helpful piece of information. I am glad that you shared this useful info with us. Please stay us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

Saturday, July 14th 2012

thanks alot mrs ronnie

Saturday, July 14th 2012

I learned that before u sound in university it goes the article “a” because a don’t know what about phonetic, am I right?

Saturday, July 14th 2012

    Yes, you are correct! English has so many exceptions to all the rules and Uni. is one of them!

    Thursday, July 26th 2012

Can you please come with more detail that where to use ‘a’?

Saturday, July 14th 2012

    Hi there!
    The issue is the sound you hear at the beginning of the following word disregarding weather the first letter is a vowel or a consonant.
    For example,
    -A one-pound meat. as much as (one) starts with the letter (o)which is vowel we hear (wan)which is consonant sound so, we use (a) not (an).
    -A union,a university,a unit,a useful book, a European woman all starts with a consonant sound which is (y) as in young. BUT before words like umbrella,
    uncle,and underpass we use (an)because
    they starts with a vowel sound which is short( u )as in up,under, truck,ect.
    On the other hand we use (an) before words starts with a consonant letter because the first letter is silent as an hour,an honest man.
    Or the first letter is sounded as a vowel sound .for example
    -an MP …the ( M) sounds (em).
    -an X-ray….the (X) sounds( eks).
    -an SOS…the (S) sounds ( es ).
    PLEASE note that the letters (a,e,i,and o ) always make vowel sound, so always use (an) when the word starts with one of them. I hope that would help.BUT wait!!!! until engvid.com and Ms. Ronnie approve this comment, because I ,personal, have a problem with the English language and still need to learn more,and I could be wrong about it ,and I hope , Ms.Ronnie , correct this comment,So I feel confident.THANKS.

    ms.

    Sunday, August 12th 2012

      ADDITION to the above comment.
      The letters (a,e,i,and o)always make
      vowel sound except in the word (one)(one is a sight word in which the pronunciations has nothing to do with the spelling.),So use the article (an)when you see one of them at the beginning of the following word.
      But the letter U makes a consonant sound and a vowel sound.
      ONE MORE EXAMPLE
      The letter( R )is a consonant letter,
      But if you want to say ( I have one radio) you must say ( I have a radio )
      because you hear the consonant sound (reh) at the beginning of the word radio. But if you want to say ( I see
      one R ) you must say ( I see an R ) because you hear a vowel sound like the one you hear when you say the verb
      to be (are).Briefly you should know that the letters are difirent than the sounds and there are two kinds of sounds ,vowel sounds and consonant sound.Good luck !!!
      IF YOU PLEASE WAIT UNTIL ENGVID.COM AND
      MS. RONNIE APPROVE THIS COMMENT.

      Monday, August 13th 2012

      very useful.Thanks to you and for Ronnie too.

      Sunday, May 11th 2014

hi ronnie ,
iam just confusing with the sentence ” i want the shoes” you have said before that the article the comes before a single noun but shoes are plural ,aren`t they ?
thanks alot

Sunday, July 15th 2012

    Yes, shoes are plural but you must use “the” when you talk about something for a second time or if everyone know which shoes you are talking about!

    Thursday, July 26th 2012

Nice one Ronnie. My gratitude to you and the engvid team.

Wednesday, July 18th 2012

Thanks, Ronnie. I wonder which article to use with the work university. In my country we were tought to use a. Here the rule is you use only with words where the first letter is pronounced as a vowel.
And another question: in the morning, in the afternoon. Is pronounciation same? Thanx for your reply.

Wednesday, July 18th 2012

    Yes, there are ALWAYS exceptions to grammar rules in English! University is one!

    Thursday, July 26th 2012

Another country with an article is the Ukraine.

Wednesday, July 18th 2012

    Ukraine now lost its article, so “the Ukraine” was downgraded to “Ukraine” :D

    Thursday, November 1st 2012

hi ronnie can u plz tell me whats the proper meaning of how come in detail

Thursday, July 19th 2012

    How come = Why.
    I went to the store. How come? (why?)
    Because I needed to get some film.

    Thursday, July 26th 2012

    Hi,
    Let me explain more plz,
    Let’s have a look 2 these 2(why n how come)in question 4m:
    1.Why don’t u do ur assignment?
    2.How come u don’t ur assignment?
    As it’s obvious,the order is different,
    (why + auxiliary verb),(how come + subject)
    Does it help?! I hope so.
    The best with ur English!

    Saturday, September 1st 2012

Friday, July 20th 2012

    I am from Canada!

    Thursday, July 26th 2012

I have one simple question about more specific things. Ronnie, you said that we should use the article “the”, but what with “this”, “these”, “that”, and “those”?

Could I use the word “this” instead of “the”? For instance: “You see a new car. This car was made by…” Is it acceptable, or I have to use “the” instead?

Friday, July 20th 2012

    Yes, you can use these, this etc!

    Thursday, July 26th 2012

nice lecture.

I am waiting of ur reply with a video. Thanks

Sunday, July 22nd 2012

I’m from the Middle East, when i watched your presentation i understand very well, so thank you very much.

Sunday, July 22nd 2012

Ronnie!!! Thanks for the lesson, was famtastic. I just wanted to make an observation. Canary Islands are NOT a country. They are part of Spain. And this makes me question if I really understand what country means. For me, countries are Japan, Egypt, United Sates, etc, or it can be applied to some zone in a country, Canary Islands, for example?
Thank you so much!!

Sunday, July 22nd 2012

thanks Ronnie you are the best teaching because we cannot learning this English thanks

Thursday, July 26th 2012

Hello Ronnie,
sorry for nagging, but I have a few comments.
I have never heard of the rule, that with a country, which is comprised of many little islands, we use “the”. In fact Japan is an example of such a country (it’s comprised of thousands of small islands, apart from main four islands). I think we use “the” with plural names of places e.g. the Philippines, the Netherlands, the Bahamas etc. Also, I think you might have included, that we use “the” with names with ‘Republic’ e.g. the Dominican Republic. Would we use “the” with these countries: Russian Federation, Papua New Guinea? Many thanks

Thursday, July 26th 2012

you are wonderfull and can i chat with you privet if you never mind please

Hello Ronnie! Can you correct all the  mistakes in my story? Do I Have any grammatic mistakes?

Princess Diana dies in Paris crash

The princess of Wales has died after a car crash in Paris. The accident happened after the princess left the Ritz Hotel in Paris with her companion, Dodi al Fayed-son of Harrods owner, Mohammed Al Fayed. The Princess’ Mercedes car was apparently being pursued at high speed by Photographers on motorbikes when it hit a pillar and smashed into a wall. Mr Al Fayed and the chauffeur died at the science. The princess and the bodyguard were still alive in the car, so the recue cut the wreck, and took Diana and her bodyguard to the hospital. The surgeons tried to save her life, but she died after two hours. Only Princess Diana´s bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, survived the crash. Blood tests Showed the driver, Henri Paul had taken both drugs and a large quantity of alcohol before the accident.

Hi Ronnie!
I am studying English Philology now. I would be grateful If you could explain me what is the diffrence using The Lions or only Lions. And those examples when we cen use The or we do not have to use it.Thank you in advance. Ps: You are great teacher!

Friday, September 14th 2012

    If the word is plural (lions) we don’t use an article. However, the second time we talk about the same lions, we say THE lions as they are specific (we know which lions you are talking about)!
    I like lions. The lions are dangerous.

hi Ronnie what was the different between The & the? plz tell to me.

Thursday, September 27th 2012

Thank a lot Ronnie

Saturday, September 29th 2012

Hi! I’m sorry my English please. I’m going to try to explain me.
I’m not sure about “a” pronunciation in USA vs UK (well, and Canada as well…NZ..etc).
For example:
In–> a dog, a bottle, a brush…
1) “a” sounds like ‘a’ in ‘man’ if I’m talking with somebody from Uk?
2) In USA, people pronounce ‘a’ like in wave?
3) In Canada ‘a’ sounds always like UK people pronounce?

I’m not sure if you understand what I mean.
Thanks.

By the way I’m from Tenerife, Canary Islands :)

Monday, October 1st 2012

    There are SO MANY different British, American and Canadian accents that is it impossible to tell you how each sound. Depending on what part of each country a person is from (and their education), will change how they say words!

    Saturday, October 6th 2012

hi ronnie! You’re a great english teacher, very cool and funny. i’m preparing myself for an IELTS.

this is great a lesson^^ good luck^^!!!

Thursday, November 1st 2012

    a great lesson haha ^^

    Thursday, November 1st 2012

Hi, Ronnie!
You’re an amazing teacher. I really love your lessons :) Your teaching style is very, very, very helpful, especially for non-native speakers like me.
You mentioned that you were gonna make a lesson about when we do not use articles before the nouns. Are you still gonna do this? Because I couldn’t find any similar lesson in a list of your lessons. Or you were taking about Alex’s lesson? However, that lesson doesn’t cover some confusing things, for instance, what’s the difference between “listening to music” and “listening to THE music”? Why is it “matter of fact” and not “matter of a/the fact”?
So, if you ever make a lesson about all these tricky things, many of non-native English speakers will very deeply appreciate that. ;)
Thank you again for your wonderful lessons!

Thursday, November 1st 2012

    We have to say listen to music because music is uncountable. Matter of fact is an idiom so we don’t use an article!
    Thanks for watching!

    Friday, November 2nd 2012

      Well, those were just examples… Nevertheless, thank you very much for your reply.

      Friday, November 2nd 2012

Hi? Ronnie, thank you for your lessons. They’re really helpful.I’m a bit confused about the lakes. We don’t use “the” with lakes, do we?
Lake Ontario, for instance.What happens if we ommit the word “lake”?

Friday, November 2nd 2012

    We do not use THE with lake names! You must say Lake Ontario, if you omit the lake part, it is referring to the province of Ontario!

    Sunday, November 4th 2012

Wow! Thanks for teaching us. You are one of my favorites teachers! I am puerto rican and I wish learn much about english and its grammar. Sorry if I wrote wrong.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Tuesday, November 6th 2012

Hello, Ronnie. Thank you very much. I´m learning a lot of English with you. I´ve got a pair of questions for you:
– In a part of the lesson you say “…The very first letter of the alfabet” Is it necessary to use the word “first” in this case or you use it only to increase the meaning?.
– I thought the thing you use to blow your nose was called “handkerchief”. I understand perfertly the word kleenex and we use this word in Spain too, but I want to know if “handkerchief” is only use in Britain or if this word is old fashioned or something.

Thank you very much!. By the way, the Canary Islands is not a country, this islands belongs to Spain.

teacher if my frnd and me are not in The same school so should we USE AN ARTICLE????????

Friday, February 22nd 2013

great lesson on articles.i learnt that ‘a’ is used before count nouns,but i happened to see ‘a feeling’ ‘an idea’. i think the words, idea and feeling can’t be counted. is it because of exceptional rule or something else? could you clear my confusion? thanks.

Hi, little confused is it what should be the correct use of article in case of yes –> is it a yes or an yes , a service manager or an service manager

Monday, March 11th 2013

Hi,Ronie

I’m curious if I want to say that I used to have strange habit of ignoring any ideas offered by inferior people because I think that their ideas can never be better than mine.

Do I need to put a or the before “strange habit” since strange modifies habit and habit is a noun? Or we have to put articles right in front of nouns only?

Thank you
Have a good night :)

Tuesday, June 11th 2013

Ronnie I love your lesson !!! I saw two lessons before yours and they just got me confused. When you started the class you said you did not have the energy to teach all the article rules,but let me tell you something, You are the best!!! You are the only one who brought out more point of how to use an article then the other two previous lessons I watched. thank you very much!!!

Thursday, June 20th 2013

Hi Ronnie, I have one question. If you say that we put ‘the’ before the country name like The United States of America for two reasons. One reason is that it starts with ‘U’ and another one is it has more than two words.

But what about the country India. It also starts with ‘I’, then why we do not put ‘the’ before it. Yes, it contains only one word.

Now, it strike to me that if both the conditions are true, then we put ‘the’. Is it so? Please clarify my doubt…. Thanks… Best Regards…

Thursday, June 20th 2013

It’s very good lesson. Thank you.

Monday, June 24th 2013

Tuesday, September 24th 2013

These sentences are potentially ambiguous:

I want ___ apple.
Look at ___ moon.
I’d like ___ egg for breakfast, please!

The quiz answers are the most likely answers, but there are cases where one of the other answers would have been correct. Example, I want the apple (from the bowl of mixed fruit).

Wednesday, September 25th 2013

Hello Ronnie,
Thanks for your beautiful teaching skill.

Thank You Ronnie. But I’ve got a question: when I was a student in my country, my teachers taught me ‘an hamster’ not ‘a hamster’. According to your video it’s right. But one year ago in a british college the teacher said ‘absolutely not, you can’t use ‘an’, because you say ‘h’ letter before rest of word ‘hamster” What do you think? Which one is correct? A hamster or AN hamster?

Saturday, November 30th 2013

Ronnie,
we use articles before noun, for example “a chair”. What about “an old chair” – why we talk “an old chair”? “C” is not vowel or vowel sound? Can You explain that for me? Marek

Sunday, January 4th 2015

    try to help, from what i know THE is used when you pointed something specific..In that sentence, hotel, rooms and swimming pool are specific you meant. It’s not any hotel or any room or any pool but that’s specific, the specific perfect hotel, the specific comfortable rooms and the specific big pool outside your window
