Thx Rebecca

Monday, May 5th 2014

    Thanks a lot TOO for this video lesson Rebecca.

    Thursday, May 8th 2014

      Rebecca, to tell the truth I have been using these intensifiers for some time now, but without thinking much about the idea of “managable/unmanagable”.

      The contrast you made did really help us to understand much better their use and meaning.

      Rebecca, during your explanation you constantly used the word “SO”, what’s the relationship between these three words: SO, VERY, and TOO?

      Thanks for evething Rebeca.

      Thursday, May 8th 2014

        its like a synonym.i live in Virginia and i hear this Word alot

        Sunday, May 11th 2014

        So and very are used in almost the same way with positive or negative adjectives. For example,
        The weather is so beautiful today. (positive)
        The weather was so terrible yesterday. (negative)
        Our hotel room was very fancy. (positive)
        Our hotel room was very dirty.(negative)

        Too is used with negative adjectives only. For example,

        The exam was too difficult. Many students failed. (negative)

        Hope this helps, Regino. All the best to you!

        Saturday, May 24th 2014

          That is what I was about to ask..Thanks for asking Regino
          But my question is if TOO is used with negative adjectives only then why people say thay she is too cute or she is too good etc?

          Saturday, May 31st 2014

          When “too” is used with positive adjectives, it’s like a deliberate exaggeration. “Your baby is too cute!” is like “Your baby is the cutest!”

          Saturday, May 31st 2014

          I had problem with too and very , really thank you

          Friday, August 15th 2014

Tuesday, May 6th 2014

Thank’s Rebecca !
Which word they’re used more often in spoken english : very or really ? i.g “The history test was very or really hard” ? ; “It’s very or really good book” etc.

Tuesday, May 6th 2014

    “Very” is a proper,formal word. “Really” is much more informal. That’s the main difference. My best wishes to you.

    Saturday, May 24th 2014

thank you Rebecca i love u!

Tuesday, May 6th 2014

    And I love what you wrote about yourself in the “about me” section. How wonderful to simply describe yourself with the words “I am happy.” I wish you many more reasons to be joyful in your life! All the best!

Wednesday, May 14th 2014

Hi Rebecca as ever you explain it very clearly for us to understand.
would it be possible by the way to post a lesson about the meaning of the verb run in a different context?
Thank you so much Rebecca

Thursday, May 15th 2014

Hi Rebeca!

IN 2009 you replay a comment for someone, and you wrote : (Since “to know” is a stative verb)
I can’t fine means of this world :STATIVE=…
Pease can tell me about it ??
Thank you

Thursday, May 15th 2014

    Please watch Ronnie’s video on stative verbs:

    http://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-stative-verbs/

    I am sure it will help you. Stative comes from the word state or condition. In English grammar, it describes a large group of verbs which express states versus physical actions. Watch the lesson and I am sure you will understand. All the best to you.

    Saturday, May 24th 2014

    Hi, Behr. Can I ask you a question – If you live in Netherlands why it’s needed to learn English to you? And if you want to emigrate to another country, what you didn’t like in this one?

    Wednesday, June 4th 2014

      Hi, Khanaphi,

Wednesday, May 21st 2014

Friday, May 23rd 2014

THANK YOU, MAM

Saturday, May 24th 2014

Hi Rebeca.
I hope you are happy.
Can you help me? please.
I got 70%.
I have doubts.
Why is too hot (example of the soup)
Why is too big (example of the shoes)
Why is too old (example you are never too old to learn english)
Your help will be appreciated.
Regards.

Sunday, May 25th 2014

    The soup is too hot because you will have a negative result if you have it – you will burn your lips. The shoes are too big, and so you ask for smaller ones.
    In such examples, you could say something is very hot or very big but the point is that when something is too hot or too big, you change your course of action accordingly.Watching the lesson again may help you understand better. My best to you.

    Monday, August 18th 2014

I Can understand clearly.

Thursday, May 29th 2014

hi
may u tell me the difference between ( neat ) and ( tidy )

Saturday, June 14th 2014

    Both words have the same basic meaning. All the best. Sometimes we use both together just for emphasis, as in:

    Her room is so neat and tidy.

    All the best to you.

    Monday, August 18th 2014

Rebecca, maybe you are very tired reading and answering all these comment. :)

Greetings from Italy

Friday, March 13th 2015

))))))) I also had the same mistake with soup, maybe because nowadays we don’t eat much soup:)
I believe that Rebecca lessons are essential in Learning English, why? because she’s giving you the basics of English, the Essence, Elixir, soul of the things.
Thanks Rebecca. and God bless you.
P.s.
The funniest thing for me, is that I am having problem with the easy- common things in English, not with the hard ones… I know tons of vocabularies, all I need to let them out. practicing, and May God forgive my brother Michael in Las Vegas, Because if i was there, my English would be much better…
