    hey osvaldo!

Hello Ronnie,

Firstly, I would like to thank you and your colleagues for your great efforts which you have explored to English language learners. Secondly, your offer and idea to provide private lessons on skype is marvellous and I would be grateful to you if you send me more details and how soon can we start because I need to practice with you some speaking. Thank you for a prompt response. NB. 1)It would be perfect to have two or three sessions, an hour each, from now to next Thursday. 2) If you are busy the coming days and you don’t mind asking James , Rebecca or Valen to give me a hand, I would appreciate that very much.
Sincerely,

Ashraf

Wednesday, June 9th 2010

Ronnie, You has/have forgotten You
and it have/has made me confused.
And I am Jean-luc, the French Reloup Rouge
But Thanks anyway, apart from YOU has forgot IT is a good lesson

Monday, June 14th 2010

I cannot (can’t) get my head around 2 things
1. the difference between like and as-I’ve seen “Like a bat outta hell”, but As blind as a bat”
2. is there a big difference between “fat chance” & “slim chance”- I’ve seen both where the context leads me to believe “small chance”
But Fat is not small- I am all of a confusion!

Monday, June 14th 2010

    The person must have said ” fat chance” with sarcasm. Meaning there was NO way there was a chance. That is the same meaning as when somebody says in a serious way that they have a slim chance.

    Sunday, February 10th 2013

I think I’d prefer to have a slim chance than a fat chance

Monday, June 14th 2010

It would seem I have neither a fat nor a slim chance of getting an answer to my question

Monday, June 14th 2010

Good lesson Ronnie!
P.S. About the siren, you know if the police caught the thief?

Tuesday, December 14th 2010

please help me understand what is the difference or on how to use should, could and would..thank you so much best regards to all teachers..

Tuesday, December 14th 2010

    You should look on the site — another teacher has made this lesson to help you!
    Should and could we use for advice with you, he, she, they, we. eg…You/he/she/we/they… should/could go to the movies!
    When we use “I”, we must use “would” for advice! “I would go to the movies.”
    When we use “I should have + past participle”, it is a regret!

    Wednesday, December 15th 2010

wow thanks for this site, it can help me learn more about English specially that I am hard up learning it.. I’m from Baguio, here in Philippines.

Saturday, December 18th 2010

Do we say ” she is having or she is hasing. why?
I need a clarification please .

Thursday, December 23rd 2010

    She is having! Hasing is not a word!

    Thursday, December 23rd 2010

wow it’s amazing website i love it

Saturday, December 25th 2010

hello Thank you for this lesson , you are a good teacher

Monday, December 27th 2010

What are the differences between these sentences? and which of them is correct?

1- I have no headsets
2- I haven’t headsets
3- I don’t have headsets

Thursday, December 30th 2010

    All of these sentences mean the same! #1 is a very old “British English” way of saying #3. #2 is just #1 but haven’t = have not!!!
    #3 is what we use the most in daily, natural English!

    Thursday, December 30th 2010

Hi Ronnie,

I wanna to know, when i can use the word ‘have not or has not ‘?

Thanks alot.

Thursday, January 6th 2011

    We usually don’t use have or has not! But have not is for I, we, you, and they. Has not is for it, she, and he.
    We usually say I/we/they/you DONT have… and it/she/he DOESN’T have!!!!!!

    Thursday, January 6th 2011

      U teach so good! Ronni i see your lessons only.

      Saturday, January 7th 2012

Wednesday, January 19th 2011

    Hello!
    I have done a whole lesson on your question! Please be patient and keep watching!
    I made a lesson FOR you = I did it to benefit (or do a good thing)
    I give a book TO you = an exchange of something!
    For we use when it is a benefit.
    To we use when we exchange something!

Saturday, March 12th 2011

hi ronnie,i’m happy i had learn new..(is this correct?i want to ask something,if the band has a name is it plural or singular?example the beegees.

Tuesday, March 15th 2011

    or should i say “i learned.”

    Tuesday, March 15th 2011

Hi, thank you for useful lessons.
I have a question about using “have”. I often hear people to say “I do have…”. why they use “DO” word?

Thursday, March 17th 2011

    Hello….. I do have IS NOT CORRECT!!!! Be careful….just because people say things, it does not mean they are correct! You should just say “I have”!!!!

    Friday, March 18th 2011

    Hi! We say “I do have” to emphasis the fact that we have. Example:
    On their friendship anniversary, a girl asks to her boyfriend if he has a gift for her. The fact is that the boy has been planning for getting her a very nice gift that he thinks she will like very much. So when she asks “Do you have a gift for me, honey? With a big smile, he might say “I do have something for you my darling!”
    I hope it is helpful.

helo .i will never end to say you thank.i had 100 thank you

Thursday, March 17th 2011

yes no doubt u r an intersting teacher.I like the way u conduct the class with such energy.

I would like to hear from u some grammar.wat’s the difference between the following:
i had some tea
i would have some tea
i will have some tea.
also are the sentences”wat did we have?” and “wat we had?” mean the same.
I am totally mixed up with these past perfect and future perfect tenses both in conversation and in framing questions.when to use what?do u mind explaining these for me?

Monday, March 21st 2011

    I had some tea. = Simple past
    I would have some tea.= Past of “will” (I will have some tea)
    I will have some tea. =Simple Future
    What did we have? is correct, but “What we had?“, is not correct!
    Hope that helps! Good luck! Thanks for watching!

    Tuesday, March 22nd 2011

You teach good and I have a good time good luck!Thank you too much that you teach me.Good luck!

kindly pick my english mistakes in writing this comment as well.

Sunday, March 27th 2011

    With I we use have because it is the grammar rule….I don’t know why it is just the rule.
    I found your videos very beneficial.
    I am confused about one thing, you said for singular we use does and for plural we use do.My question is “I” , it is also a singular form but why we are not using does with it?

    Hope that helps you! Good luck!

    Sunday, April 3rd 2011

You keep on repeating the word English, sadly most of your words are not what English people would teach or say. if fact it is true to say that it is American English, not English as it is spoken, and it is not ‘ weird” how British people speak, it is the right way and it should be the only way to teach, because as an English teacher myself i have to correct my students time and time again because they have learned English from a lazy and ignorant teacher, please do not (don’t) get me wrong, i am not saying that you do a good job bur if you are going to teach English then please use the correct English, because it is(it’s) a bad reflection on British teachers who spend an eternity correcting foreign students how it is actually spoken. I find it rather annoying that you are to lazy to correct yourself in this way and expect your students to be just as lazy as yourself. Do not (don’t) blame the Queens English for being spoken as it should be when you are either to ignorant or just plain lazy to do so. I hope that you read this comment that i have written so that it may help others who actually pay to learn out native tongue.

thank you (thank’s)

yours

Kelly

Monday, April 4th 2011

    Ahahahahhahah
    That means I’m laughing at you in “American” ” English”.
    I guess they don’t teach you how to write a proper sentence in the bloody Queen’s English, only how to be a twat!

    Tuesday, April 5th 2011

    Dear Kelly,
    Because of teachers like you (super competent but also super arrogant and intolerant), the persons like me (the poor wretches that we are!) ended up being disgusted and annoyed by the “classic” English lessons. Please note that most of the persons I know have STUDIED english (and not american English!!) at school for many years with some teatchers like you and have really LEARNT english with some teatchers like Ronnie. Please note that a language changes and progress so before criticize maybe you’d open your mind and be more pleasant. Surely the British Queens speak English and not American but surely she’s got good manners and is POLITE. Keep smiling…

    Sunday, May 1st 2011

      :D I like it when people get angry on the internet!

      Friday, May 13th 2011

    Dear Kelly,
    I have CAREFULLY and CONSCIOUSLY gone through your wise,valuable suggestions..It turned out to be the most disgusting,boring,irritating,annoying article which I have ever read in my life..Do you know what is the actual problem of some scum like you-I firmly believe you do not..You people always try to make everything complicated and too tough so that no one can absorb the ideas and grasp the knowldge from something which is actually very simple-We get confused,messed up,demotivated,frustrated during the learning period because of some bch…. like you.You people create problems for us-i am specifically proud of getting teachers like Ronnie and others-They are my inspiration,idle,friend-philosopher-guide and nothing less than GOD-They are really doing a great and noble job here-So you please let them go on.. if you don’t like them,are not satisfied and if you think they are illiterate,uneducated people then you please leave from here-This place is not suitable for you and do some research on English and if you don’t have anything to do else finding out others mistakes then buy a bottle of poision and drink it up sparing us…It’s my heartiest request to you-because we don’t want people like you here….Don’t mind and keep smiling..

    Friday, November 25th 2011

    1.Ronnie is great teacher!
    2. I don’t think you are a teacher!you can not write properly. I is always (I) no (i)..You can not be a teacher…sorry and if you don’t like this web you should not be here! Ronnie is the best!

    Friday, December 2nd 2011

She ______ a dog.

* has
* have
* is having

Why not She is having a dog?

Bit confused.

Thursday, April 7th 2011

    because having is plural?

    Thursday, April 7th 2011

      She has a dog. (Simple present tense, means she own a dog)
      She is having a dog. (Present continuous tense, means at the time of speaking, she is with a dog).

      Monday, April 25th 2011

    having a dog

    Thursday, August 11th 2011

ronnie i fall in love with your lessons

Thursday, April 7th 2011

Tuesday, April 26th 2011

hello teacher ronnie. please teach me/us about “had had” “has had” “have had” etc. iam confuse about this. thank you!

Wednesday, April 27th 2011

    Hello!
    Had + p.p (past participle) is the past perfect tense! Eg.. I had had a dog, then I had a cat. We usually use past perfect and the simple past together.
    Have/has + p.p is present perfect. He/she/it has + p.p. Eg..She has had a dog for 4 years.
    I/we/they have +p.p. Eg.. I have had a dog for 3 years.
    Hope that helps you!
    I will try to make a lesson on this for you!

    Wednesday, April 27th 2011

Extremely important foundational knowledge. ESL students really get confused with do/does/has/have and we teach them the first rule: Does and has with 3rd person singular and then tell them it is incorrect to say “Does she has?” So this lesson it great! Thanks

Thursday, April 28th 2011

Hi Ms. Ronnie thank you for this Lesson, But I’m having a hard time to understand the past of have. :(

Thursday, April 28th 2011

” i didnt had eaten it “”
” i had not eaten it ”
” i didnt had ate it”” so which one is correct and why ? pease reply i need to know that .

Thursday, May 12th 2011

Hi;
I want to know when I can use has,have,and had
Thank you

Friday, May 13th 2011

    Has and have are present tense.
    I/they/we/you + have. We have a class at 2pm.
    She/he/it + has. It has a ball.

    Had is past tense. You don’t have to change the verb with different subjects — they are all had!
    I/they/you/we/she/it/he = had. Eg. I had a headache last night.

    Saturday, May 14th 2011

thanks >> i get it.

Saturday, May 14th 2011

Hahahha so cool

do you teach near the police station center??????????
that voice is always in all lectures

Sunday, May 15th 2011

    No, but there is a lot of crime in our city. We have new microphones in the newer lessons, so you shouldn’t be bothered by the outside noise as much.

    Sunday, May 15th 2011

hello my best English teacher
how are you?
thanks for your this lecture
it was Great….

Sunday, May 15th 2011

hi there,i hope you doing great.

i’m just wondering to know the difference between
i have met him
i had met him .
your answer is highly appreciated.
thank you.

Monday, May 16th 2011

    I have met him is present perfect and used when there is no time indicator and/or based on life experience.
    I had met him is past perfect and used when we talk about an action in the past that is no longer true today.

    Tuesday, May 17th 2011

      Thanks for your prompt reply.

      Wednesday, May 18th 2011

    Monday, June 13th 2011

      Thank you Ronnie
      I asked you this because I heard for many times on TV this kind of approaching for the past perfect, I thought this is a slang.

other than these videos, what else do u teach Ronnie? I want to suggest u can teach me more on verbs deeply.tq hope to see ur reply.

Sunday, October 9th 2011

Hi Ronnie,
I’ve got a question for you to answer.
When teachers check homework, do you think it’s better to ask: Did you do your homework for today or Have you done your homework for today? – Did you bring your English book or Have you brought your English book?
And what about students? Is it better: I forgot my homework/booketc. or I’ve forgotten my homework/book, etc.?
Old Walt Whitman thnaks you a lot.

Sunday, October 9th 2011

    Hey Old Walt Whitman!
    It is better to use simple past because you are using the time marker of “today”.
    However, it is not wrong to use present perfect, it just seems more natural for me to use simple past!

    Monday, October 10th 2011

thxs for the nice vid

Wednesday, October 12th 2011

Sunday, October 30th 2011

hiiii
thanks for the lessone
but I wanna ask you about how i can use have to or have been or has to like this?
thanks

Thursday, November 3rd 2011

    Have/has to are obligations = I have to go to the movies.She has to eat her dinner.
    Have been= present perfect.www.engvid.com/past-simple-or-present-perfect/

    Friday, November 4th 2011

hi

i want learn all tens

Thursday, November 3rd 2011

Hi Ronnie, How are you doing? I love your videos and all the videos are useful and informative. I have a slight confusion with “am/is” against “has/have” usage. Examples
1) It is done/It has done/ It has been done
2) Is he come/ Has he come?

Similary with “do” against “are”, Examples
1) Do you agree?/ Are you agree? (In my opinion, it is wrong usage)
2) Are you ready? / Do you ready?

Can you please clarify when to use what from the above examples?

Please clarify my queries here or make a new video if it is really difficult to explain over here.. :-)

danke

Sunday, November 6th 2011

    It is done – is simple present tense.
    It has been done is present perfect.
    When you use “is”, it is present tense. Have/has + past participle is past tense (present perfect)!
    He has come = present perfect. He is come is wrong – you are correct! Good work!
    When the following word is a verb (agree) you have to use “do”
    If the following word is an adjective (ready) you have to use “to be”.

    Sunday, November 6th 2011

Hi Ronnie,
Thanks for your prompt reply. I understood the concept now but I still have confusions with question formations using “Do”, “Will”, “Have” etc. For example:
Do you come? (present)
Will you come? (future)
Have you come? / Did you come? (past)
I think “Have you come?” is incorrect…

Similarly question formations using shall/will/should/would/could/has/had etc.

I would request you to make a video (ofcourse whenever you get a free time) regarding question formations..

thank you / Merci – your second language in canada :-)

Monday, November 7th 2011

Hy Ronnie. I love your video lessons, but I have one question: when you say that we have to use the form “has” for he or she because they are singular people, then why do we have to use “have” for I? Isn’t that a singular person as well? Thanks.

Monday, November 28th 2011

    Yes, I is a singular person. I have no idea why we have to use have – it is just another grammar rule!

    Monday, November 28th 2011

Thank you so much ronnie i really appreciate your lesson. More power.. :D

Thursday, December 1st 2011

thank you ,It was a very useful lesson

Monday, December 19th 2011

Hello Mr.RONNIE
I don’t really understanding
didn’t
don’t
which is correct
ex: i don’t know about him.
i didn’t know about him.

Thursday, December 22nd 2011

    Don’t is present tense.
    Didn’t is past tense.

    Tuesday, December 27th 2011

Monday, December 26th 2011

thank you a lot i learn many lesson from you and i will learn a lot really thank you from helal in egypt

Monday, December 26th 2011

Tank you

Saturday, January 7th 2012

Hi,love the way you teach us;you guys are very nice,love you very much sweet people,I thing only reason behind American and Canadian development is that you people are very honest,love you ma’am.

Here I have a question.
I studied the rule that with singular and third person pronoun we should use “has” like he has or she has.
But while offering a seat a single person why we don’t say him”has a seat please.”
why we also say him have a seat?
please mail me the answer.

Monday, January 9th 2012

    We say “have a seat`, because we are talking about the seat (which is singular) – not the person!

    Monday, January 9th 2012

You need a space between A and KEEN.

Monday, January 9th 2012

thank for this lesson

Friday, January 13th 2012

today i learn about where to use do and did, has have had. i cant express the joy. from past two years i just to speak English so i start purchasing grammar books reading papers but didn’t get these rules so easy.. thanks mam. every did i watch ur videos and leave comment..thanks for helping

Friday, January 13th 2012

The teaching was really good and helpfull, I have few qestions

_____ Julia and Sam got any money?
Answer should be
“Have”, since it denotes more than a person. I am correct?

The same should be for the below sentence
My daughters_____two dogs. It should be “Have”, because daughters is plural.

Sunday, January 15th 2012

    Yes, your answers are both correct! Great work!
    #1 would be more natural to ask “Do Julia and Sam have any money?”, but your answer is correct too!

    Sunday, January 15th 2012

very very useful

Wednesday, January 18th 2012

wow…. very helpful. want to learn more… :)

Wednesday, January 18th 2012

hello!!
is this correct?? i don’t have much time going to the meetings???

thanks

Wednesday, January 18th 2012

    No. I don’t have much time because I have to go to meetings. Or, I don’t have much time in the meetings.

    Sunday, January 22nd 2012

thank you ma’am

Thursday, January 19th 2012

thanks ronnie all your lesson are so great!

Friday, January 20th 2012

Wow – this is the second time I’ve had a student ask me this question – where did you get this from??? It is very. very unnatural and I would NEVER say this. Grammatically, it looks alright but you need a comma. THE STRANGER WAS AFFABLE, WITH GOOD MANNERS and A KEEN WIT.

Sunday, January 22nd 2012

please explain me about has had, have had. I am not geting the exact meaning or proper interpretation of above grammatical words, when i read.

Sunday, January 22nd 2012

    If subject is “he/she/it” = has had
    If subject is “you/they/we/I” = have had
    The grammar point is present perfect!

    Monday, January 23rd 2012

I love this website so much becoz i learned a lot..and it help me so much.thak you teacher,,;)

Monday, January 23rd 2012

I would choose A but you should ask your teacher or who ever gave you this question!

Monday, January 23rd 2012

Yeey! i got 100.. thank you so much teacher Ronie.

Wednesday, January 25th 2012

Very Nice , I get 5 Correct out of 5

Thursday, January 26th 2012

realy help ful GOD BLESS YOU . :)

Thursday, January 26th 2012

hi Ronie,

I like your teaching style. I hope i will improve my English very soon. Thanks…

Saturday, January 28th 2012

yeah thanks a lot madam. however, can you please describe with the more practicing video live.

Thursday, February 9th 2012

hi Ronnie can I say I had not homework yesterday

Saturday, February 11th 2012

    Yes, you can say that but it is more natural to say “I didn’t have homework yesterday!”

    Saturday, February 11th 2012

hi again, you didn’t mention “it” and “you” in the explanation- how do we reffer to them?

and i also didn’t understood why do we say “he doesn’t have” and not “he doesn’t has”

and just like it- in the past why don’t we say “he didn’t had”
thank you a lot!!

Sunday, February 12th 2012

    It + has.
    You + have.
    We change the auxiliary verb DO to DOES with he/she/it, so we do not need to change the next verb. In the sentence “He doesn’t have”, only the DOES reflects the subject!

    Monday, February 13th 2012

thanks ronnie I got 5/5

Sunday, February 12th 2012

Dear Madam, could you please teach me that how to use in perfect tense and may have and might have

i have sent a letter yesterday

i sent a letter yesterday….which are the correct answer

Monday, February 13th 2012

    I sent a letter yesterday is better because we don’t use a time marker when we use present perfect!

    Monday, February 13th 2012

Hello.. can you tell me when to use had? e.g : he had gone or he have gone? And is this cambridge english?

Wednesday, February 15th 2012

    He had gone = past perfect.
    He have gone = WRONG. He has gone= RIGHT! Present perfect!

    Wednesday, February 15th 2012

hello can u tell us what show us?

Saturday, February 18th 2012

wonderful and very useful. thanks.

Friday, February 24th 2012

hi, Ronnie, i am one of your fans here. i love your teaching style. i wish you will add another topic how to stop stutter or mubble words cause i have this kind of problem.

Friday, February 24th 2012

    Thanks! A lot of people mumble! Just try to slow down and say the words slower! Most people do it because they are nervous! Just take your time and try to speak slower!

    Monday, February 27th 2012

Thank you, can you, give us class of
Plural form of other, another and others
Thank you I like your metode

Sunday, February 26th 2012

HI, thanks for the lesson, i needed help in how to use have and has in a paragraph. for eg: Preserving food by drying, fermenting, salting and smoking ….. been in practice for several centuries. would you use has or have? just want to know what the rule is in such situation?

Thanks in advance

Tuesday, February 28th 2012

    Has because food is uncountable!

    Tuesday, February 28th 2012

Hi
I excited very much while I watched this video lesson. I afraid you are arrested by police. Finally everything is good. You saved yourself again ;)

Tuesday, February 28th 2012

Thanks you. So just to make sure my understanding is correct, we would use have whenever it is plural or 1st person or 2nd person, and we use has whenever it is singular or if it is uncountable? please clarify this.

Wednesday, February 29th 2012

    I/you/they(including plural nouns)/we = have
    He/she/it(including singular and uncountable nouns)= has.

    Wednesday, February 29th 2012

thanks for helping me in the lesson has,have,had

Wednesday, February 29th 2012

hi.. thank you for helped me to show the different between have and does have….

Sunday, March 4th 2012

Hello. I think the last quiz has 2 answers.. “I____ two eyes”. Why “have” is correct,but “had” is false??

Monday, March 5th 2012

    If you say “I had two eyes” it means you had two eyes in the past, but don’t any more. So it might be correct if you happen to have lost an eye in an accident or something…

    Monday, March 5th 2012

    Had means you lost an eye!

    Monday, March 5th 2012

Hi Ronnie how are you? thanks for all lessons!….today’s lesson was great thank you so much!….i like the way you teach! ….i have a question: if you can do a lesson about the phasal verbs?..bless you!

Tuesday, March 6th 2012

Thank you..

Friday, March 9th 2012

Do you have a online class ?

Friday, March 9th 2012

    This is the online class!

    Friday, March 9th 2012

Hi!ok so in order to make it clear enough or the bottom line is instead had not which is negative I can use didn’t have and aside from that “has” is also for had? is it? what about if that is singular for instance: she didn’t have or she didn’t has which is correct? thanks much!!!

Monday, March 12th 2012

    She didn’t have.

    Wednesday, March 14th 2012

He hadn’t eaten breakfast. Is this correct in American english or is it, he didn’t eaten breakfast. which one is correct? I need to know the answer its urgent please !!!

Monday, March 12th 2012

    It should be “hadn’t eaten”.

    Tuesday, March 13th 2012

Miss Ronnie you have use people for example(singular people).Is it correct or sigular person(not singular people)is correct.

Thursday, March 22nd 2012

Thanks Ronnie,
This video is very useful…Cheers

Saturday, March 24th 2012

Quick question Ronnie: Am I right saying the following? “I have had eaten my breakfast before going to the office last Monday.” Thanks!

Saturday, March 24th 2012

    Almost – but you have to say….I had eaten my breakfast before going to the office last Monday.”
    Past perfect = had + past participle. (you had 2 past participles)

    Saturday, March 24th 2012

      Spot on Ronnie. Thank you! I’m really confuse sometimes if I want to say past and future perfect tense. I will find if you have such lesson here. Thanks once again. Cheers

      Saturday, March 24th 2012

nimal saman and isuru have or has

Saturday, March 24th 2012

Thank you very much,I’ve always watched ur Engvideo.:) From Philippines

Saturday, March 24th 2012

Hello is me again.. i have questions to ask ..

Is ‘my wallet is stolen’ or ‘my wallet had been stolen’ or ‘my wallet was stolen’ ? what is the difference?

Thank you for your reply. I appreciate you effort:]

Sunday, March 25th 2012

    is = present tense. We wouldn’t use this to talk about this situation.
    was = past tense. This is the most natural way to say this.
    had been = past perfect. We would only use this to tell a story where 2 actions occurred. EX. I was going to buy some fruit but then I realized that my wallet had been stolen.

    Sunday, March 25th 2012

please we need to konw about
HAD HAD
EX: If I had had more money ……..

Thanxxxxx

How do you explain to a non-english speaker what “have” means and when you use have, has, or had?

Friday, April 20th 2012

Hi Ronnie,
How come, you didn’t talk about the
pronoun IT.I beleive we can say,it(the table) has four legs.Also we can say: I haven’t, I hadn’t,he/she/it hasn’t.
Would you pleas correct me!

Saturday, April 21st 2012

    I am afraid of it.
    It = has/hasn’t…you are correct!

    Sunday, April 22nd 2012

thank you, you are very simple and clear in your teaching for English

Sunday, April 22nd 2012

What is the basic rule for using the words had, have, and has?

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

hello. im just wondering. when do we use has have had… can we use it always before the verb? such us emigrate, be, sing, notice, tell,… why we use have if even without have is ok… help me
thanks

Monday, April 30th 2012

    Had/have/has=verb!
    If use use have/has + p.p it is present perfect
    Had + p.p = past perfect!

    Monday, April 30th 2012

Please take a lesson for this Had/have/has=verb! When should we use it and how to use it.

Sunday, May 6th 2012

thanks i take u r lesson ….it was so nice ….
plz help me to understand basic english grammer

Sunday, May 6th 2012

Good job Ronnie. Your tutorial makes a difference because you taught changes with the modern English

I had a good lesson :)

Monday, May 7th 2012

One thing I would like to share with you is to make sure I am on the right track:-
Has-used for singular nouns (He, She and It)
Have-used for plural nouns (I, We, They and You)
HAD is the past tense of HAVE
and,
if negative HAD then, all sentences will be didn’t have (irrespective of singular and plural nouns)

If I am right, then I think I making a good move towards learning English.

Comments are appreciated.
Thnx :)

Monday, May 7th 2012

thank you so much for answering me.

Friday, May 11th 2012

Hi teacher Ronnie,
i’m from malaysia, chinese people.
i’m still don’t know how to use /HAD/HAS/HAVE/ which one is past tense ?
present?

Friday, May 11th 2012

    Had = past.
    Have/has = present.

    Monday, May 14th 2012

      Thank for your reply ^——^
      1] He and She must to use Has/does?it never change?
      2] When we must to use Had? please give some example.

      Friday, May 18th 2012

        1) he/she/it use has and does – yes, this never changes in the present tense!
        2) Had = past tense. She/he/you/I/they/we + had some apples.
        I had a cold but now it is gone.
        Watch the video again and YOU give ME examples.

        Friday, May 18th 2012

          I HAD finished my homework yesterday.
          right?haha:)

Saturday, May 12th 2012

Thankyou! the lesson is simple but great! thanks a lot

Monday, May 14th 2012

It is very useful for all of us, please keep posting.. Thanks
and also please tell us about vocabulary too thanks :))
Good Luck

Monday, May 14th 2012

Hi Ronnie, how are you going ?
What can you about me ? Well, I can understand writing and even listen you teaching on video. However,I cannot write well! What should I do? I’m from Brazil and I love your teaching.Of course which this writing has a lot of errors, but it was what I could do without use the translator. Thanks.

Wednesday, May 16th 2012

    To practice writing, you should write a short diary entry daily. OR just try to write without a translator and see how you do! Translators make us lazy. You are fortunate because a lot of the vocabulary is similar in Portuguese and English!

    Thursday, May 17th 2012

And Ronnie, ohh look me here again….
I’ve a question. Should I use;
I hadn’t or I didn’t have ?
Ex: I’d not a car. I did not have a car.
And sorry me, but I’ve another question ? May I ask ? oh, in fact, I just ask a question.
What should I use ?
I don’t have or I haven’t ?
Ex; I don’t have a book.
I haven’t a book.
Thanks !!!

Wednesday, May 16th 2012

    “Didn’t have” is what I would say, but “hadn’t is also 100% correct. I think hadn’t is old British English. If you are speaking to an old British person, they might say “hadn’t”. Most people use didn’t have!
    Again, I would say ” I don’t have a book”. I haven’t a book is old English!

    Thursday, May 17th 2012

What ´s the difference betweeen :
Did you tell.. or
Have you told..
When we use did and when have!!

Thursday, May 17th 2012

    Did you tell = simple past. We use this with a time marker. Ex. Did you tell him yesterday.
    Have you told = present perfect. We use this without a definite time marker. Ex. Have you told him. (We don’t know when)!

    Thursday, May 17th 2012

Do I say, for example : ” Why does everything (have) to be about you? ” or do I say : ” Why does everything (has) to be about you? ”
Your help would be greatly appreciated :)

Thursday, May 17th 2012

    have

    Thursday, May 17th 2012

Thank you RONNIE :)
Could you please explain why we used (have) ?? :) :) PLEASE

Friday, May 18th 2012

Hey Ronnie! Filipino here! I forgot this, while I’m in vacation… Now, I’m writing a story. And I have a lot of questions to my mom if my grammar is right, but she’s always irritated. So I searched in youtube about this lesson. So thank you for sharing your knowledge to us…

Monday, May 21st 2012

tank you teacher ronnie you are really a good teacher,has,had and have are very useful,I would like to ask you were I should use have been .

Saturday, May 26th 2012

hi ronnie… do you already have a video of how and when to use “SOMEBODY, SOMEONE, EVERYBODY, EVERYONE”?if you don’t, can you please make one for me? coz i find it very difficult… (is my grammar right?) oh ronnie, please help me….

Monday, May 28th 2012

hii ronnie. i want to know that. how to make this sentance. mai bick banwa rha hu.cousitive verbs ques.please send me

Saturday, June 2nd 2012

    ????? I have no idea what you mean.

    Saturday, June 2nd 2012

hey ronnie how r you? i have an other question for u.my question is that in thz video u taught us that if we want to make negative sentence so we write like this she doesn’t has or they don’t have but i learned in negative sentence we use hasn’t nd write like she hasn’t eaten mango or i haven’t eaten mango so would u pls explain???

Sunday, June 3rd 2012

    In the past tense we say did/didn’t, present tense does/doesn’t. You can use hasn’t/haven’t but it is very old fashioned- we don’t use them now (but they are correct).
    However, if you use present perfect as you did in your example “hasn’t eaten mango or i haven’t eaten mango”, you MUST use have/has + p.p.
    You have written 2 different grammar tenses – that is why you are confused!

    Sunday, June 3rd 2012

Sorry,where is SUBJECT “YOU” ?

Sunday, June 3rd 2012

thank you so much! nd it means that we do not use has/hasn’t and have/haven’t now… nd if we want to use it we have to write p.p with them right….

Monday, June 4th 2012

You make it easy for everyone to understand.tnx

Monday, June 4th 2012

very nice, My Miss Ronni , keep the tune up in the same momentum.

we need your more lesson to become a good English speaker.

Wednesday, June 20th 2012

i want to go to abroad

Tuesday, June 26th 2012

Hello madam,
what’s the difference between have,has,had in perfect tense and as means of possession.I am so confused about this usage.

Thursday, June 28th 2012

    Have/has + p.p is present perfect.
    Had + p.p is past perfect.
    Have/has + base verb is to show possession in the present tense.
    Had + base verb is the past tense to show possession!

    Friday, June 29th 2012

You guys are awesome. I love engvid.com and it has helped me a lot. Whenever I feels I’m using wrong grammar or speaking wrong English, I always come here and look for a video which could help me to improve my English.
Thanks again. Keep up the good work.

I don’t have
He has no
He doesn’t have
It has no

    Have/has no/not and do/does not are the same!!!
    The only thing is that we usually use do/does not! Have/has no/not is old school English! To speak more naturally, use do/does not!
