    Great! Glad to know the lesson helped you. All the best!

    Tuesday, July 19th 2016

yes , I got 100% without watching the lesson :”) .

    yep…me too

    Saturday, July 16th 2016

    Hi Lightnor. So, the quiz was a piece of cake for you? Congrats! Keep up the good work! See you around.

    Well, talking about mistakes . . . I see them as a natural part of learning. I learn more when I realized I made a mistake and much more when I am able to correct myself.

    That´s the way I go about it.

    A million thanks Rebecca for this great video.

    Take care, that´s it for me now.

    Sunday, July 17th 2016

      thank you so much , I’m not a confident person but you give me push to make it forward .

      Monday, July 18th 2016

      You are right, Regino! Mistakes are feedback, not failure.

      Glad the rest of you did so well. These are serious errors, so glad to know you’ve overcome them. All the best.

      Tuesday, July 19th 2016

    Monday, July 18th 2016

Advice and advise, that was the difficulty for me. Thank you for this excellent lesson.

Saturday, July 16th 2016

    Me too…I was confused again :(
    “Advice” is a noun and “advise” is a verb.

    Thank you, Rebecca :)

    Saturday, July 16th 2016

          Tuesday, July 19th 2016

Dear Ms. Rebecca,
You’re intelligent, qualified, and hard-working. I’m sure you study hard before you prepared your lessons I bet.
so, your lessons always look well- prepared, well-presented and well-done. It’s not a compliment but it’s a fact. I always follow up your new lessons.
i can’t thank you enough

yours sincerely

Saturday, July 16th 2016

    Thank you so much for your kind and generous words. I see that you have implemented many good techniques in your writing, such as the magic of 3! Yes, it does take time and effort to develop the right lessons, so it is always a pleasure to hear from my viewers. Thank you, and all the best to you.

    Tuesday, July 19th 2016

Saturday, July 16th 2016

Saturday, July 16th 2016

Great! Though i did few mistakes, i am doing well. My mistakes were simples, principaly about advice and advise. We won’t give up.

Saturday, July 16th 2016

    You want to say. ” I made a few mistakes”! This itself is a very common error. It’s not easy to know when to do use “do” or “make”. Here’s a resource I wrote that might help you:

    Wishing you all the best, Allan.

Best regards.

Monday, July 25th 2016

Thank you kindly.

Monday, July 25th 2016

Interesting lesson :) I could never understand why even native English speakers mix up these homophones, since they have very different grammatical functions (maybe it’s only something historical, as pointed out on http://www.merriam-webster.com/video/its-vs-its). As for adverbs, I’ve heard that it’s also possible to use their “flat” versions (see http://www.merriam-webster.com/video/drive-safe-in-praise-of-flat-adverbs), but I’m not sure if they’re widely accepted by grammarians.

Monday, July 25th 2016

i had alot of benefit from it,tank you!

Monday, July 25th 2016

Thanks!!! Thats cool!

Hello
Is it correct to say ( Now, why do you want to be a soldier, Mr.)
