      Hello Rebecca, it’s too tough to use all these tenses, I have a lot of issues with them… Perhaps, I only the one who use simple tenses. LOL

      Wednesday, January 6th 2016

Sunday, November 29th 2015

I’ ve never hated anyone in my life even though she or he ‘s my enemy.Is this sentence correct with the agreement between subject and verb?

Sunday, November 29th 2015

Great class.

Monday, November 30th 2015

Hello Rebecca,
Thank you for this lesson . We can use present perfect for something done but that has just happened. For instence : I have woken up ( “just” would be placed between “have” and “woken” to emphasize the meaning ) . Is that true ?
I have a question about present continuous , sometimes it is used to express something that will happen in a near futur . Is that true ? If yes could you give some explanations . Thank in advance.
Bye

Monday, November 30th 2015

    Dear ts amp, let me answer your questions with my little knowledge of English.
    (1) Yes, It’s true. You can use time adverbials (only, just, recently, …) which refer to the recent past with present perfect.
    (2) Generally, we use present progressive for present action, but we can also use it to talk about the future.
    e.g. Tomorrow I’m seeing Dr. John. (I’m going to visit Dr. John tomorrow. I’ve already made up my mind.)
    Yes, he will accompany you on the trip. He isn’t working next week. (i.e., He won’t surely work.)
    We’re going to the concert on Sunday. (We’ve already bought our tickets.)
    We’re visiting the world heritage places when we get to Rome. (We’ve already planned.)
    I hope my answers can satisfy you. Thank you very much.

    Monday, November 30th 2015

      Hello ZENITH . Thank you for your explanations they have obviously satisfied me . I will be less confused ,and above all with the use of present continuous as a futur tense . Anyway it must make sens because in speaking french we also use present tense when speaking about something that will be done and we place generaly an adverb-time at the begining of the sentence . e.g Tomorrow morning , I am working for you .
      Bye

      Monday, November 30th 2015

        Thanks, Zenith, for your help and tsamp, for your comments. My best to you both.

        Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

    Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

Hi Rebecca,

Could you please elaborate on the meaning of
“He’s never sleep so late” ?
Does it mean that he’s slept too long this time? Can this sentence also have the meaning that he doesn’t normally sleep late at night? :)

Thanks,
David

Thursday, December 3rd 2015

    Sorry, of course I meant “He’s never slept so late.” No edit option .)

    Thursday, December 3rd 2015

      Yes, the sentence could have both meanings. Wow, you are very observant! All the best, David.

    Wednesday, December 23rd 2015

Thank you for this lesson.

Monday, December 7th 2015

Thanks for the lesson.
Where we can use since and for in present perfect tense?

Monday, December 7th 2015

Haii Rebecca. I’m from Malaysia. I’m newbie here. I want to know what is difference between regular verbs and irregular verbs? Hopefully you can help me. Thank you

Monday, December 7th 2015

    The difference between regular and irregular verbs is in their past simple form and in their past participle.

    With regular verbs, we add -ed or -d. For example,
    work – worked – have worked
    dance – danced – have danced

    With irregular verbs, there is no set pattern so we have to memorize the past simple form and the past participle. For example:
    drive – drove – have driven
    break – broke – have broken

    To learn irregular verbs, check these two resources, which you can also download:

    http://www.engvid.com/english-resource/irregular-verbs/

    http://www.engvid.com/english-resource/common-irregular-verbs-grouped/

    All the best to you.

Hi dear teacher Rebecca. Great lesson, it’s clear like a drop of water. I’d like you solve a doubt I have always had. What the difference is between ” Do well and do good “? or when do you use these?. Thanks One thousand in advance.
