Hello he slams the door suddenly. He’s a careless driver. He had a Car accident . He looks strong,muscle bound, built up well
Nose hair, he is tall. He jumps up and down. Walks backward
Is that correct?

Friday, April 13th 2012

hi rebeca i have a question what happend when i use “GOOD”

Friday, April 13th 2012

    First of all, good is an adjective and well is an adverb.

    The words good and bad are irregular adjectives and behave differently from regular adjectives.

    With regular adjectives, we make the comparative form by adding -er to the adjective, and the superlative form by adding the -est to the adjective, as in hot, hotter and the hottest. The other regular way is to use more / most, as in difficult, more difficult, and the most difficult.

    In the case of good, good is the basic adjective, better is the comparative form and the best is the superlative form.

    This is a good car.
    This car is better.
    This is the best car of them all.

    The same happens with bad/ worse/ the worst.

    The adverb well is used in this way:

    He writes well. (not “He writes good.”)

    Like all adverbs, it tells us how he writes; in other words, it gives us more information about the verb.

    Bad and Badly require a little more explanation, so I suggest you check a good grammar book.

    All the best to you.

    Friday, April 20th 2012

      I messed up lots of times with the use of good and well till now. Thanks!

      Sunday, September 30th 2012

Hi Rebecca, On the quiz about adverbs. When do I use good and when do I use well? thanks a lot!! :)

Friday, April 13th 2012

    Hello, I have a thought that I can answer your question. “good” is adjective and “well” is adverb of adjective “good”. Now, let’s take this example:
    “We did a good job.” –> “good” describes “job” which is a noun and for that reason, “good” is an adjective. But you also can say:
    “We did the job well” –> “well” describes the action of how “job” was performed. Both sentences have the same meanings. I hope you understand! ^^!

    Monday, October 21st 2013

Hi Rebecca, I really appreciate your kindness and your explanation. Thanks alot.

Friday, April 13th 2012

Hi Rebecca, I hope you’re doing great. Wonderful video by the way. I want to ask you something. You clearly said that when you use good as an adverb you must use well, I understood that. But I have heard some people that say very well and very good, and I wonder what’s the difference in that case (or should I say what the difference is) correct me if I’m wrong please. Oh another question. When I was doing the I choosed She speaks very clear, but after finishing the quiz pointed out that it was wrong, that I should have said clearly. It makes sense because if you ask how does she speak the answer should say that she speaks clearly, like you have taught. But I think that I have heard it without the ly before. I must be wrong sure, but is there any possibility that I could be right? Thanks for doing the video, and I hope for reading and answering! Hope to see you soon with another grammar lesson on this site.

Friday, April 13th 2012

    Thanks for your feedback and interest.

    Sometimes people say “very well” or “Very good” at the start of a sentence as a way of saying, “Okay”.

    However, in a sentence, they would be used in this way:

    He speaks very good Portuguese.
    He speaks Portuguese very well.

    In the case of “She speaks clearly.”
    this is the only correct version.

    Thanks very much for your interest and attention to detail, Martin. My very best wishes to you.

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

Hi Rebeca, I first want to know how you are..I hope things are going right in your life and you are leading your life smoothly,easily,happily while having a lot of fun and joy in your life.I must thank you for being inspired,motivated of learning this language by your priceless,incredible,unmatched video lesson ..Sometimes I intend to live in a world surrounded by English.I consider English to be the sweetest language across the world.To be honest,I must admit that I would have loved to take birth in an English speaking country.However,the creator does not seem to have wanted that but I am grateful as well as fortunate to have been able to see the beautiful world around me which encourages me to do something which has not been done by any living creatures till date-something which is still hidden,unbeliveable.I am also blessed to have got a chance to improve my English with the best friend (i.e. engvid) of mine..I request you to keep going this noble work helping a lot of learners across the world to have a strong command along with a deep realization of this language which could enable them to be landed in their desired carrers ..
Finally, I am winding up my emotions,thoughts by letting you know that I am looking forward to getting response from you…

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

    Thank you kindly for your feedback. I wish you all the best with your English language learning.Given what you have written, I would say that you already have mastered quite a lot of the language. I do believe that we are all capable of achieving our goals, and I am sure you will do the same. My very best wishes to you, Sona.

    Friday, April 20th 2012

Rebecca, thank you so much for this lesson. I am working on my English improvement hard, so I hope I used the adverbs in this sentence correctly.

Wednesday, April 18th 2012

Friday, April 20th 2012

hi Rebecca . Can you please tel me last example ?
She speaks good English
She speaks English well

I can’t understand these examples :{ what the different?

Saturday, April 21st 2012

hi Rebecca . Can you please tel me last example ?
She speaks good English
She speaks English well

I can’t understand these examples :{ what is the different?

Saturday, April 21st 2012

    I think about the meaning, both two sentences have no differences. But about the grammar, they’re different. “good” stands before English so it’s an adjective which describes the noun which is “English”. In the opposite, “well” is adverb which describes the verb “speak”. Tell me if I’m wrong. ^^!

    Monday, October 21st 2013

hi rebecca,may i ask u a question about the present continuous tense?

if i miss someone at the present time,should i say i’m missing you??is it correct?

thx

Saturday, April 21st 2012

Hi Rebecca, Thanks for clear explanation. I like your pronunciation. It is clear and suitable for the non-native persons. Your lessons and method are also very obvios for any learners. Enjoy your teaching.

Saturday, April 21st 2012

Nice! Keep going and going—–

Sunday, April 22nd 2012

I really appreciate the methodology of teaching English.I have learnt too much of things before which i could not think of those materials. Thanks a bunch Mrs.Rebecca

Sunday, April 22nd 2012

Dear Rebecca,
Your lesson is very useful. I learnt a lot. Very clear explanations. Very easy to understand this lesson.

Sunday, April 22nd 2012

thank you very much teacher. I understand now about take a bring that you teach thank so much but how about (give and take)

Sunday, April 22nd 2012

Hii Rebecca,
I have learnt one stuff today.It’s actually a fundamental concept of English.I like to discuss about parts of speech expressing how much I have properly understood.
For an instance, we have words like “education”,”protection”,”Eviction” etc.These are all nouns whereas if we eliminate the “tion” part from the end of these words,we get the action words called verbs in English(Like “to educate”,”to protect” etc.)
Even, we can convert these action words into their corrresponding adjective forms by just adding “ed” at the end.I have cited some sample sentences here too.
1.All of my friends are well educated except me.
2.The chief minister of bengal(A state known Kolkata in India) has pledged to provide rehabilation package to the evicted people of Nonadanga.(The place where a lot of encroachers used to live before being evicted by the government).
3.My laptop is well protected by the newly-launched antivirus by microsoft which cost me one thousand and two hundred rupees to buy.
I like you to let me know if I have proper conception or not..

Monday, April 23rd 2012

thank you for help

Monday, April 23rd 2012

Thank you very much teacher. I understand now about take a bring that you teach thank so much but how about (give and take)

Tuesday, April 24th 2012

It was really cool to learn about those adjectives which are adverbs also, whithout changing its form. these were some new things for me.
Also the explanation about good and well and their use was a flash of light over a subject that I used to get confused.
Thanks Rebecca, nice class :)

Tuesday, April 24th 2012

Thank you very much for lesson!

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

Very nice lesson and very good pronunciation!

Thursday, April 26th 2012

Hi, Rebecca

I have a question about preposition
i have read a sentence like this :
i am leaving the country , question is why we don’t use preposition here like leaving from the compony. Sometimes we have to use preposition but here why we don’t use or are there verbs we don’t have to use preposition ? Can you explain or can you make a lesson on this topic ,please ? Thank you very much for this great lessons …

Thursday, April 26th 2012

I always ask myself about these rules… Actually I asked, because after this explanation everything is clear in mind… I’ve been learning a lot, in that way my I’ll improve quickly…All the best

Hello Rebecca…you know I have not gone to the haven, but when I think about it, think that all of the angel are gonna look like you !!!

Saturday, August 4th 2012

thanhks rebeca. you said slowly and i can understand this lesson. ^^

Tuesday, August 14th 2012

Rebeca, why the last question we choose hardly ?

Tuesday, August 14th 2012

    Hi hahuynh, I think that Rebecca mentions “hardly” to make you pay more attention to distinguish of “hard” and “hardly”. They’re both adverbs but have different meanings. “Hardly” means “almost not or almost no”. For example: “She hardly ever call me”. That means that she almost never call me! ^^!

    Monday, October 21st 2013

Thank you for all your lessons..

2)I khow the artist slowly well.

I´m confuse that sentences. Please help me

Thursday, August 22nd 2013

    Excuse me I meant: 2)I know the artist slowly well.

    Thursday, August 22nd 2013

Thank you so much Rebecca
you are the best my teacher
Your teaching really well .God bless you

Wednesday, September 4th 2013

can some one explan to me this :

how the careless become carlesly ?

. Sonia works ______________.
carelessly
careless
carelesly

Please!

Saturday, September 14th 2013

    “Sonia works carelessly” is the correct sentence. “Work” is a verb, so we need an adverb (carelessly) to describe the action of Sonia. There’s no word like “carelesly”. I think it’s wrong spelling.

    Monday, October 21st 2013

i got it thanks engvid

Saturday, September 14th 2013

Thank you so much Rebecca. You are the best teacher I’ve ever seen. I really love your lessons and by the way, can you explain to me how to use the word “very”. Sometimes, I’m confused of using “very”. “Very quick or very quickly?” Which one is correct? Do we have any tip or formula to use it?

Tuesday, October 15th 2013
