Thank you
in which cases we use will, gonna, Shall and going to

Sunday, May 8th 2011

    Watch my lesson on will and going to on the site.
    “Shall” is very old-fashioned and British English — we rarely use shall in North America!
    Hope that helps — Good luck!

      Thursday, June 27th 2013

      Hi Ronnie, why Bob gave a gift _____ Fergus. is a benefit to Fergus but not use “for”?

      Thursday, June 27th 2013

      Thank you… Ronnie you are my favorite teacher.

      Could you help me ? I don´t understand de diference between for and By.

      Tuesday, January 21st 2014

      can i ask you why wrote the in the beer

      Wednesday, April 30th 2014

Hello Ronnie,
you are awsome because I am learning from you to much.could you please explain different between get and take? and also, is it OK to say mam to a young lady or not,I mean in what situation saying mam is OK?

Sunday, May 8th 2011

    Get means to receive . Eg… “I get my paycheck every Friday.” “I get a gift on my birthday.” “I get a cold in the winter.”
    Take means you actively grab/reach/transport something. “I take a cookie from the bag.” “I take the salt and put it on my food.” “I take my paycheck to the bank.”
    Mam is a very formal way of addressing a lady. If you worked in an expensive restaurant or retail shop you would call a lady “mam”. However, in everyday situations, it is much too formal. You can just say young lady or girl, but it is best to call people by their first name in a casual situation!
    I hope that helps you!
    Thanks for commenting and good luck!

    Monday, May 9th 2011

Great! Keep up the good work!

Sunday, May 8th 2011

Hello Ronnie,,,thanks for the explanations,, it’s cool, thanks
And I would like to ask you, what is the differen between Realised and Realized, they are really bothering my mind,
thank you my teacher :)

Sunday, May 8th 2011

    Hello Cristal99,

    Before, I had the same problem with you, I can’t not distinct: realise – realize, recognise – recognize, etc. Although realise is a British spelling and realize is a American spelling, they have same meaning. Hope it’s helpful.

    Muopmap,

    Sunday, May 8th 2011

      hello Muopmap,,, thanks for your kindness and told me about that, so no mattter which one we use both are coqqect :) now I got ht, thanks

      Monday, May 9th 2011

        Both are correct but is you want to use proper UK english it’s better to use Realise and Recognise, many words have been spelled differently to make it easier for Americans to spell them for example, Americans spell Center, the correct UK English is Centre, Americans spell Meter, UK Metre.
        Both versions are ok to use but only the UK version is true proper English so you need to decide if you just want to use English generally or if it is important for you to know the most proper form of English?

        Wednesday, November 23rd 2011

          hehe I meant to say > If you want to use proper English, I may speak English but my typing is not so good.

          Wednesday, November 23rd 2011

          Hey, there is no “most proper form of English”! English may have originated in the UK, but that doesn’t mean British English is “more correct” than American or Canadian English. You can’t use text-speak spelling in a school essay, and formal business English would be out of place at a party—but we teach people about the rules and phrases particular to each of these contexts. Similarly, if someone asks about UK vs. US English, it’s enough to say “This is a British usage” or “It’s only spelled this way in America”!

          (By the way, we’re based in Canada, which blends US and UK spelling: “cheque” and “metre”, but “recognize” and “practice”.)

          Thursday, November 24th 2011

          You said > “English may have originated in the UK, but that doesn’t mean British English is “more correct” than American or Canadian English”.
          If you read my comment I also said either version is ok to use? But if someone wants to learn Proper english (UK) they are better to learn and use the UK version, after all if you’re learning from zero it’s just as easy to learn the Original proper version as it is to learn the adapted versions?
          And yes maybe text speak etc may be accepted in some situations many people may need to pass an exam to allow them entry into the UK and they will need to score high to succeed and their spelling and grammar will be very important.
          I have a friends here in northern Ireland who married a woman from Mexico, she has had to sit the exam recently and it’s very strict, So as I said, depending on your reason for learning English it can matter which version you learn to use, the situation will make it more or less important to use proper UK English or not? Thanks for your reply, I’m sure both our points are valid depending on the situation.

          Saturday, January 7th 2012

          Corrections for my own comment,I said I have a friends, should have been a friend, I don’t type as well as i speak, opps

          Saturday, January 7th 2012

    The only difference is one is North American spelling and the other is British!

    Monday, May 9th 2011

Tuesday, May 10th 2011

Thanks for learn.It’s great lesson.

Tuesday, May 10th 2011

Hello…Thanks for these useful lessons..!!!

Can I use “to” or “for” depending on the meaning I want to convey..? I came across this two sentences: “I wrote the letter for you” and “I wrote the letter to you”.. and according to the explanation, in the first sentece “for” implies that I wrote the letter instead of you maybe because you were not able to or for any other reason… and in the second one, “to” implies that the letter is for you and for nobody else…

Tuesday, May 10th 2011

Thank you for lesson
It is very useful

Tuesday, May 10th 2011

Hello again…

Could you please explain the difference between: Hope, Expect and Wait..? Thanks…

Tuesday, May 10th 2011

    Hope is similar to wish – it is almost not possible but something you want/wish to happen! I hope I win the lottery!

    Expect is something that you think should indeed happen. You expect that I will answer your email.

    Wait is a time phrase. I am waiting for your answer.

    Wednesday, May 11th 2011

      According to your explanation, could you please tell me if this sentence is ok..?

      I hope you don´t expect me to wait for you

      Wednesday, May 11th 2011

        Yes, that is correct!

        Thursday, May 12th 2011

          Why is that correct? I can’t see neither transfer or benefit!

          Sunday, July 8th 2012

Great explanation Ronnie; simple + efficient !

Thursday, May 12th 2011

hello, Ronnie, I like your teaching method very much. It is easy to understand the usage as well as the tenses used. However, It is quite pity that I am unable to access to the quiz. Please guide me how can I access to the quiz. Appreciate that I could get reply from you. Thank you. Have a nice day! bye!

Thursday, May 12th 2011

    Please make sure you have the latest version of your browser. Some people with old versions of Firefox are having trouble with the quizzes.

    Thursday, May 12th 2011

Thabks Ronnie . I have a question : in this sentence why don’t wa have agreement in this sentence between subject and verb” a friend quiz you”

Thursday, May 12th 2011

    ” a friend quiz you” This sentence is wrong. You can say “A friend quizzes you” (present tense) or “A friend quizzed you.” (past tense) If you do that, then there is subject-verb agreement!

    Thursday, May 12th 2011

Hi Ronni
ur way of teaching is nice and clear. I’d like to know, why I can’t understand what the english native speaker exactly talk about, especialy when they speak long and quickly. how can I improve my listerning ability

Friday, May 13th 2011

    The first thing is don’t try to comprehend EVERY word the person is saying – if you can get even a few words, you may be able to understand what the person is trying to say! When I lived in Japan, I didn’t understand what the people were saying but I could get a few words and be able to piece together the information!
    Body language is a great help too – look at the speakers face and eyes – you can tell by the person’s expressions their emotions!
    It is difficult too because we use a lot of slang (esp. young people). You should try to learn slang and idioms!
    If the person is talking to you, just ASK them what they meant! It is a great way to communicate with people and perhaps they will use different words that you DO understand!
    The last thing is just listen everywhere you are – your brain will absorb it and you will be able to understand! Watch tv shows or movies with English subtitle, and listen to music with words on youtube. The radio is TOO DIFFICULT; they speak too fast and use too much slang!
    Good luck!

    Saturday, May 14th 2011

      Hello my best teacher Ronnie.First of all i hope you’re doing well.I have just read this great and simple words you said to explain how can we improve our listening ability,really personally i’ve used the and they’re so so helpful.THANK YOU !

hi,
thnaks for help,
my problam is speking and writaing,plz help me plz plz plz

Sunday, May 15th 2011

Dear Ronnie,
There was a mistake the lesson you were teaching here.Here is the link.Will you please check this link again.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTQb42w7oig&feature=relmfu
Passive–Active
example was:I eat lunch
and your answer was:Lunch was eaten…
But the example that you gave here was The simple tense so Answer should have been passive(simple tense)which is:Lunch is eaten(by me)if the example was tense then your answer would be correct.
which is like:I ate Lunch(Active)
Lunch was eaten by me(Passive)
Thanks….

Sunday, May 15th 2011

    “Lunch was eaten” is correct and can mean lunch was eaten by a group or by one person, although it would normally be applied to a group as one person would probably say I ate lunch.

    Saturday, January 7th 2012

Good morning teacher . I agree with everybody said good word for you ,I would like to add one thing ( I like your teaching by using body language )

Thursday, May 19th 2011

Ronnie , Do You like maths? I would like to one lesson , how to write and pronounced 2+2=4 or 2×3=6. or 6/3=2 Thanks :)

Thursday, May 19th 2011

    I will try to do that for you!
    We say two plus two equals four (2+2=4)
    two times three equals six 2×3=6
    six divided by 3 equals two6/3=2
    how that helps you……..!!

Ronnie, I started to learn English when I was 12-13… do you think if I move to the U.S.A or Canada or whatever I’ll be able to speak English without a foreign accent? I love you! bye ;)

Friday, May 20th 2011

    I doubt it very much as my Gran came from Scotland when she was 8 and never lost her accent! But if you try perhaps you can! Where are you from???

    Monday, May 23rd 2011

      I’m Brazilian

      Tuesday, May 24th 2011

        Hi Italo, I do not think that you have to try to change your accent, the most important thing is that we use English to communicate and if people understand what you gonna tell them. It is nice if you are perfect, I mean it is nice if you can try the native voice (American or Englis),if not that is still ok, communicative effectiveness is more concerned. I think so and good luck.

        Tuesday, June 7th 2011

when to use the words small,little,few ,some

Monday, May 23rd 2011

    Small and little= size of an object – The dog is small. The child is little.
    Few/some = for quantity. I have a few pigs (2-3 pigs). I have some pigs (3+pigs)!

      Monday, August 1st 2011

Hi Ronnie,
Thank you so much for your teaching on To and For. I´m Brazilian too and I can tell you, we have loads of doubts related to prepositions, especially To and For. I think this topic was all covered and I have no more doubts :-) Thanks a million!

Monday, May 30th 2011

Hello Ronnie,

nice video, but I have still a question about using “to or for”. Yesterday I saw an English movie where they used the following sentence “It’s very important to me!” Why is “to” used in this case, and not for? I do not see there any kind of exchange. Could I also use “for” in this scentence?

Thanks a lot for your help!
All the best
Thomas

Monday, May 30th 2011

Hi Ronnie I realy like your lessons, one favour
Could tell me when or how is used: “in”, “at”, “on”

Monday, May 30th 2011

I really like ur teaching. I can`t write alot of for u. so , thanks

Tuesday, May 31st 2011

This lesson was very helpful for me as a non-english spoken background person. I have got very big advantage from it. But, there is one question for you? is there any previous lesson about on and upon as they are confusing me.

Wednesday, June 1st 2011

    There is no lesson about on and upon…but upon usually means that you are on top of something. On has many different meanings!

    Saturday, June 4th 2011

      smart and beautiful

      Monday, December 5th 2011

Thank you, Ronnie!

Hi Ronnie,

Is it correct to say “to wanting”. I was taught that after the word to the nx word should not hv an “ed” or “s”. But I’ve heard such word “to wanting”. Could you help me out. Thanks

Saturday, June 4th 2011

    No, to wanting is not correct!
    You can say I want to…!

    Saturday, June 4th 2011

Tuesday, June 7th 2011

Hi, I`m an english teacher in south of Brazil, and I was with some doubts about students questions, when I found this website That is a such nice one. Someone asked me about To and For… and I said hehe… I tell you next class, and then I just Found the answer. Awesome explanation. If you don`t mind I`ll pass that FOR my students!
Thanks, Take Care!

Tuesday, June 7th 2011

For thanks someone in Kurdish language we saying ZOR SUPAS

Tuesday, June 7th 2011

Hi Ronnie
First of all thanks for all your lessons.
There are a few things that I’d like to mention. Some of the examples you’ve showed on this video make think of ‘it depends on the situation’.
For example: I sing for you. (you sing for someone for many different reasons) ok.
Now if someone says: I sing to you. Wouldn’t it be correct as well, simply with a different meaning?

Tuesday, June 7th 2011

    Yes! You are correct – it does depend on the situation. Some can use both – there are always exceptions to everything in English – that is why it is so hard to learn!

    Wednesday, June 8th 2011

      Thank you! By the way I enjoy watching your lessons, you’re really cool!

      Tuesday, June 14th 2011

Thank you so much ,,Ronnie

Wednesday, June 8th 2011

Hi Ronnie . Again i would like to ask you something relating to comprehension skills and composition skills . Can ya tell me how can i improve my these fields cuz ya know my exams are near so please quickly tell me . It will be a pleasure for ya to help .

Wednesday, June 8th 2011

    For listening you should try to listen to English tv shows with subtitles, and English music with the lyrics. Also it is not important to know EVERY word someone says – just the main words – your brain should be able to think about what the person has said!
    For writing – I suggest you write a little in English everyday!

    Wednesday, June 8th 2011

It’s is very useful for me.
I have learnt a lot.
Thanks. ^^

Wednesday, June 8th 2011

Saturday, July 16th 2011

thank you,,,im from philippines….this tutorial is very helpfull… =)

Sunday, July 17th 2011

Hello, Ronnie. I want to thank you for your lesson. But I still have one question to ask you. What is correct: “It’s important for me or to me?”
Once I asked my American penpal, and he replied that “It’s important to me” is correct. But, after watching this video I thought myself that he was wrong. Am I right or wrong? Thank you.

Sunday, July 17th 2011

    It depends on the context – if you use for or to. Ex…Water is important for me (to live). Dogs are important to me (because I like them).
    English is very confusing and it is difficult for me to give you a concrete answer/example.
    I think that we use “important for me” when it affects our life – health, education, etc.
    “important for me” is more of your opinion on how much you value something.

    Monday, July 18th 2011

you are wonderful and your lesson super. i have one question.
I and my friend washed the clothes.
I and my friend are washed the clothes. which one is correct sentences.

Wednesday, July 20th 2011

    Hello, Vita. I and my friend washed the clothes is correct, because the second sentence does not make sense. The first sentence is grammatically correct(past simple)

    Friday, July 22nd 2011

Thanx Ronnie!! u are my savior!!

Wednesday, July 27th 2011

Hi dear teacher! Your hair is perfect today! Well, I´m here to thank youthe lesson. You made it FOR me! I always confuse these words! Can I make you a question? When I was a child I learned a song: “Hello my dear teacher, how are you? I´m me so very happy TO say hello TO you.” Is the use of TO correct here? I´d like to know to teach my students!You´re in my heart! Celia!

Thursday, July 28th 2011

    Yes, the use of “to” in the song is correct! It should be I’m so very happy – not I’m me so very happy.
    You should say “Can I ask you a question”…not can I make you a question!!!!

    Thursday, July 28th 2011

      Thank you! I´m so glad to receive your repply!!! I´m your real fan! I´ll never forget this day!!! Kisses fom Brazil!

      Friday, July 29th 2011

Hi ma’m Ronnie! Your very generous! Thank you FOR the lesson. But i have a question here, it seems a little irrelevant but i hope you would consider it. When to use believed and believe. Thank you very much!

tnx a lot

Tuesday, October 4th 2011

ronnie i do understand the tenses, but why it is very difficult for me to compose a perfect grammar.can you make a sample for the cardinal 12 tenses.tnx a lot

Tuesday, October 4th 2011

thanks alot …. its really useful even i had this doubt for long days now it got over

Wednesday, October 5th 2011

i was writing to one of my friends i i put: you are a very special person for me but then i was thinking if is not also correct to say: you are a very important person for me!! which one is wrong and which one is correct? in this kind of sentences what are the rules in the usage of to and for?

Thursday, October 6th 2011

    sorry i put the same i was trying to ask is it also correct to say this sentence in this two ways: she is very important to me or she is very importat for me thats my question

    Thursday, October 6th 2011

      In this case, you DO NOT need to put “for me” or “to me” because YOU said the words!
      All you need to say is = “You are very important”! The listener/reader will already understand that is it for her!!!!

      Thursday, October 6th 2011

you are great techer ever!!!!

Thursday, October 6th 2011

Hi Ronnie

Thanks for this class, you’re so funny, l like that, a feel more confortable to learn.

Saturday, October 8th 2011

what a magnificant website and what an amazing teachers! i explored it yet and i really loved it. i have a lot of questions =) one is that already, when do you english speakers use ‘a lot of’ and ‘lots of’? can you explain?

Saturday, October 8th 2011

    We should say “a lot of” but we are lazy when we speak so we say “lotsa” Ex. I have lotsa homework.
    We say this instead of saying much/many!

    Monday, October 10th 2011

nice to meet you RONNIE

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

hello..tnx for the video..it really helps me a lot..but could you help me when it comes to in and on? for example, i say ” i beleive in you ” should i use on insted of in? or what? im confused whether to choose on or in..plss help me here is my email..kianochino@ymail.com ty ^^

Wednesday, October 12th 2011

    You cannot say I believe on you! “I believe IN you”, we can only use for things that may not be real like Santa Claus or God.
    If we talk about regular people, we say “I believe you”!

    Wednesday, October 12th 2011

      Hi Ronni,
      Adrian here, from Romania
      I’m a little bit confused about your explanation. There’s a song “I believe in you” by Kylie Minogue. What does she mean?
      Thank you kindly!

      Thursday, January 12th 2012

        It means that she believes that the person she is singing about is a good person and can do anything they want to!

        Sunday, January 15th 2012

          Thank you for replay Ronnie.
          So, if we talk about regular people, we can also say “I believe IN you”

          Monday, January 16th 2012

          Thank you for the reply, Ronnie.
          So, if we talk about regular people, we can also say “I believe IN you”

          I like your teaching style. Good luck!

          Monday, January 16th 2012

          Yes you can say that! It is very encouraging!

          Tuesday, January 17th 2012

          It’s clear to me now. Thank you for the reply.

          Friday, January 20th 2012

awesome!!!!!! you are the best!!!

Friday, October 14th 2011

hi, i’m an english teacher from Brazil and my students are still having a hard time understanding the difference between To and For, how can i explain “i have a test for next week” it’s not really a benefit, and also ” i want to go out for dinner and we went out to dinner” that’s confusing to/for them, i know the difference but they don’t see it. Is there a better way to clear that up?

Friday, October 14th 2011

    “i have a test for next week” is wrong. You need to say I have a test next week.
    i want to go out for dinner and we went out to dinner = this is an example in which English grammar has many many rules and these rules are broken or do not apply to EVERYTHING. Tell you students that….. It will help them ….Don’t think about the grammar too much – it will make you and your students crazy …… sometimes there is no logical explanation for English!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Saturday, October 15th 2011

THANKS mam .I am greatly thankful to you

Tuesday, October 18th 2011

thank u ma’am…

Tuesday, October 18th 2011

hello ronnie…i really like your teaching you are a great teacher who injects the lessons to students in a easy way….
I have a doubt ‘English is piece of cake to/for me’ which is correct to or for..plz correct the sentence & correct my mistakes in this msg…
thank you

Wednesday, October 19th 2011

    You don’t need to say either “to or for me” – because you are the speaker, I already know YOU think it is easy.!

    Wednesday, October 19th 2011

very useful! thanx for making it simple to understand.God Bless Ms. Ron

Thursday, October 20th 2011

ok! dimitra from greece
and…
actually the “to” in greece means “για” and it shows purpose
while the “for” does not mean “για” and it cannot be translated i english exactly and clearly
so we learn it knowing the correct syntax.
thank u!

Friday, October 21st 2011

    Tuesday, November 1st 2011

hi teacher, can you tell me about “consonant”. i mean how to use “a” and “an” and the in sentence.
and i am confuse about sentences. i mean how to make a sentences. can you help me?

Tuesday, November 1st 2011

    When you have a word that starts with a vowel – A E I O U Y or has a vowel sound “honour”, you have to use “an”.
    All the other letters are consonants BCDFGHJKLMNPQRSTVWXYZ, you need to use “a”.

    Tuesday, November 1st 2011

hiiiii teacher,
Your teaching style is so simple. i learned so many things from this video.. Could you explain the difference between of and for.
thanks a million.

Tuesday, November 1st 2011

    Of= belonging to something – King of Spain. House of Blood.
    For= to be given to someone. “This flower is for you.”

    Wednesday, November 2nd 2011

Ronnie you`re the best!!
Please tell me, how I should say
It was very stressful for her or It was very stressful to her??

Wednesday, November 2nd 2011

    It was very stressful for her we use if a situation/event caused the stress!

    Wednesday, November 2nd 2011

      thx:)

      Sunday, November 27th 2011

Saturday, November 5th 2011

hi Ronnie mam plz explain me abt tenses?

Saturday, November 5th 2011

Very useful.
Thanks!

Sunday, November 6th 2011

Hi .
I like your teaching style; I think you’re an excellent communicator.
I was watching your lesson, when you were explaining the different between To vs. For.
The rule you’ve given ( transfer- To, benefit-For).it may only work for few cases, I would suggest that just to be on the safe side, you should mention that there are lots of verbs which are always followed by “to” Talk, Speak, Go, Listen,…………..
And we shouldn’t forget about the “Infinitive of Purpose”. “I switched my pc to listen to your lesson” I think the beginners should be told these rules which I’ve suggested at their early learning stage.

Sunday, November 6th 2011

very clear! hard topic for us (Argentinos)…thanks so much for helping us!

Monday, November 7th 2011

Hi Ronnie,
Why “to” is not used in the following sentence?
I’m leaving for Japan today

According to you video, we should use “to” (I’m leaving to Japan today) here because we are carrying our body to Japan :-)

Why “for” is used instead of “to” in the above mentioned scenario… plz explain to me.

Merci

Wednesday, November 9th 2011

    When you use the verb leaving, you can’t use “to”.
    You can say I am going to Japan today……..I don’t know the reason why some verbs need different words…Just unexplainable English grammar rules!!

    Wednesday, November 9th 2011

      I heard somewhere that after GO always goes TO, and after LEAVE always goes FOR. Ex”I am going to Paris” or “I’m leaving for Paris”. Perharps, it’s easy to remember.)

      Tuesday, October 7th 2014

Saturday, November 19th 2011

    Search on the site for “relative clauses”….you can find the answer there!
    Who is for people, which is for things!

    Saturday, November 19th 2011

      and what do wich and who refer to in the sentences

      Wednesday, November 23rd 2011

Friday, November 25th 2011

beautiful, thanks a lot

Saturday, November 26th 2011

hi Ronnie,i have a question. i bought it for you or i bought it to you. which one is correct? normally we say i bought it for you.but according to your explanation for means a benefit. so how can we use “for” for this sentence because there is no any benefit for other person. just buy something only. thanks amani

Sunday, November 27th 2011

GOOD I love it

Monday, November 28th 2011

woa.. miss Ronnie are very awesome in teaching! thanks a lot!

Thursday, December 1st 2011

Hi Roni,
This videos are very useful and they are great.I am confused with the 3rd question(Bob gave a gift — Furgus). Isn’t that gift a benefit to Fergus??? please help me out with this.

thanx

Friday, December 2nd 2011

    Yes, you are correct a gift can be a benefit but it is the TRANSFERRING of the gift (item moves from A to B), that makes us use “to”!
    English is very confusing and there are so many “rules” that are not always 100%!

    Saturday, December 3rd 2011

Hi , I come here to say that I’m learning a lot techniques here and your explanation is so clear …. Thank you !!
I’m from Brazil too <3

Saturday, December 3rd 2011

Dear teacher your the great
please help me for more learning in English language

Sunday, December 4th 2011

Hello my best teacher Ronnie! First of all i hope you’re doing well.Really i was confused with these two prepositions”to”and”for”,but now the idea of “TRANSFERRING” AND “BENIFIT” will make an end for my confusion.
What will be the right word to use in the following situation? “The excercice was so complicated(for)or (to) me”.Actually i was looking for the any transferring or benifit but i could not.

Sunday, December 4th 2011

    The exercise was so complicated FOR you.

    I think its because FOR here is your opinion (good/bad)??

    Ronnie? What do you think?

    Sunday, December 4th 2011

      You don’t need to say FOR or TO… You can just say this lesson was so complicated! You don’t need to/for because I know already it was complicated for you because you said it!

      Sunday, December 4th 2011

        Thank you so much my best teacher Ronnie for your clarification,of course biiiiiiig thank for your sharing too Ms Tiffany,so we can say that there’re many cases we don’t need to use any of them.

        Tuesday, December 6th 2011

Ronnie, nice to meet you :)!
I´m from Brazil but I´m living in Chile due my job and I intend to be here for a long time.
I think you were born TO teach, because you are absolutely easy, clear, dynamic and almost actress. Ah, so beautiful to complete the adjectives! Soul and physical are necessary, right?
Today I was teaching my daughter some lessons of English and it´s was appropriated your lessons mainly about Y and J pronunciations due the problem she has with her Hispanic teachers at her school. Just my two teachers at the college where I´m studying translation from English to Spanish has a perfect speaking, because they have lived in the USA, the rest have a problem to pronounce the words beginning with R,Y and the words as SH, of SHE, SHIP, SHEET, CH etc. It sounds like a TI, you know?
Well, I think you could comment about it if you did not yet.
My best regards to you. God bless you.

Bye,
Marcio

Sunday, December 4th 2011

    Wow — that is great that your daughter is learning too — I LOVE TEACHING KIDS!!!!!!!!!
    The best way is to get her into English music too!!! I’ve done a lesson on the TH sound.
    Best of luck to you and your daughter!!! What is her name?

    Monday, December 5th 2011

      Hello Ronnie!
      Thanks for your kind words. She loves music and me too!
      I’ll find the TH later in my house, because in my job the videos are blocked. Her name is Giuliana, original from Italy.
      Tomorrow will be my exam and I’m sure that I’ll be take a good mark.

      We keep in touch!
      Canada is my goal to the future.

      Bye,
      Marcio

      Monday, December 5th 2011

Thank you so much for this clear and concise explanation.

What about
“The test was difficult FOR me”
“Smoking is not good FOR you”

That’s not really beneficial… :-) Can we also explain it as something that’s not good as well? I mean, can “FOR” also be used to talk about preferences?

Thank you again!!!

Sunday, December 4th 2011

    Oops, I think I meant “opinion” instead of preference

    Like the test was might have been easy for someone else, but it was difficult for me.

    Sunday, December 4th 2011

      Well, i think it will remain the same situation when you say” the test was difficult” or “the test was difficult for me”,and of course as u’ve said,in the 2nd sentence you’re expressing an opinion,so you can begin with” For me,the test was difficult”.
      Once again,we should know that there are some exceptions,and it depends on what the talker focuses on,BENIFIT or TRANSFERRING,For example we can say:”i gave a gift for her”(BENIFIT) and also” i give the gift to her”(TRANSFERRING).

      Wednesday, December 7th 2011

Very nice Dear Madam,
This is new helpful rule that for transfer use “TO” for Good use “For” is i right Madam,
Thanks You Madam for teaching us. Thank Live a Long LIfe i am praying.

Your Slave,
Asad Jillany

Tuesday, December 6th 2011

    Yes, you are correct!

“I’m happy TO help you.”
“I’m happy FOR you”

Thursday, December 15th 2011

    Help is a verb.
    You is a pronoun. You cannot say I am happy to you!

    Monday, December 19th 2011

Hi Ronnie, it’s great & helpful.

Friday, December 16th 2011

is it rigth? ‘ it is just for men’ plz ronnie explain it

Tuesday, January 3rd 2012

Mrs. Ronnie

very good lesson, and thanks a lot. But! can you please check the following examples it they’re correct or not please:

1- I’m learning English to attain my ambition.

2- I’m study hard for achieving my success.

Saturday, January 7th 2012

    1=ok – But it is more natural to say I’m learning English to get a good job/so I can live in Canada. (or what ever your ambition is)
    2- I’m studying hard to achieve my goals. Or I am studying hard to be successful.

    Saturday, January 7th 2012

Thanks for reply Mrs. Ronnie

It seems that you’ve used ” to ” for both examples, so are they considered as ” exchange info ” ??

Thanks a lot

Saturday, January 7th 2012

    Yes!

    Monday, January 9th 2012

Hello teacher thanks for the lesson
Ali did a great job for me.
JOhn gave a nice present to Juli.
They go to library for reading informative books.
I visit EngVId for learning English.
could you please check these sentences and another thing you did an example
Bon gave a gift to Fergus.
suppose if Bon gives some one else for Fergus. can we use
Bon gave a gift for Fergus.
thanks

Saturday, January 14th 2012

    JOhn gave a nice present to Juli.
    They go to library to read informative books.
    I visit EngVId to learn English.
    Bon gave a gift to Fergus.
    You can never use to/for = verbing.
    read and learn is a transfer of information = to
    suppose if Bon gives some one else for Fergus. can we use
    Bon gave a gift for Fergus = this is wrong. You would have to say “Someone else gave a gift to Fergus, from Bon.”
    Your other sentences are very good! Great work!

    Sunday, January 15th 2012

      thanks that was pretty helpful

      Monday, January 16th 2012

Sunday, January 15th 2012

First of all, thanks a bunch for making such clear videos, they certainly help a lot!
I have a doubt… How do I explain the use of TO in sentences like “happy birthday TO you”? Do we use it because we are “tranfering” or “sending” wishes to the other person?

Thanks!

Sunday, January 15th 2012

    Yes, because you are sending wishes to someone!!! Great observation!

    Tuesday, January 17th 2012

I want ask u some thing Ronnie
how can I learn paragraph, I’m so confused from paragraph

Sunday, February 5th 2012

How about these sentences :
1) He was really nice TO us.
2)She’s responsible FOR this whole mess.
Could you explain that ? Thanks!

Tuesday, February 7th 2012

    When we use the word nice we cannot say “He was nice for us”. We must use TO!
    Also, you cannot say responsible to = we have to use responsible for! Sorry I cannot explain WHY – it is just English grammar rules!

    Tuesday, February 7th 2012

      I got it!

      Tuesday, February 7th 2012

Hello Ronnie, can you explain to me the diference between “That and What” .

Hai teacher,
i like your way of teaching… i learn a lot from you. i want to speak english perfectly. how can i improve? can you teach me about “have been”.
“would you like to have a cup of coffee” is it correct?
if there is any mistakes please correct me..
thank you teacher. god bless you

Tuesday, February 21st 2012

    Would you like to have a cup of coffee”. Yes! This is correct!
    Have been = present perfect. Search Engvid for “present perfect”.

    When you watch a movie in English, watch it with Portuguese subtitles – this way you can study listening and pronunciation!
    With music, listen and read the lyrics (words) to the song!

Thank you

Monday, March 5th 2012

hi,
how are you? which is the correct usage?
(1) Proceed further in processing the job offer letter
(2) Proceed further for processing the job offer letter.
I feel that (2) is correct.. what is your opinion on this?
thanks

Monday, March 5th 2012

    I would say proceed further to process the job offer letter. To use to of for depends on the situation – if you are physically moving to process it , you would say #2. If it was not a physical movement, I would use #1.

    Monday, March 5th 2012

Thanks for sharing.
“Looks good to me” is correct but how to explain not to use “Looks good for me” based on the explanation?
