I made this lesson about the difference between ‘FOR’ and ‘TO’ for you. Why did I use the word ‘for’ in that sentence, and not ‘to’? Watch this basic English grammar lesson and learn when to use ‘to’ and when to use ‘for’.
Very useful lesson!!!
Thank You Ewa
Thank you very much Ronnie! All the best! :)
hi ronnie, cant i talk to you online? thank you.
Hey great video, but I have a doubt,in the sentence “of great interest____ you” what shall I use for or to?
intrersted to you
Thanks Ronnie for your helping.
salam necesen ?? are you from Azerbaijan ?
Ronnie Thank you for your lesson bye
Thanks Ronnie, you really help me>
I take in this quiz 5/5
Thanks a lot.
in which cases we use will, gonna, Shall and going to
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!
Ms. Ronnie How about the sentence. happy birthday TO you and flowers FOR you..
Hi Ronnie, why Bob gave a gift _____ Fergus. is a benefit to Fergus but not use “for”?
Thank you… Ronnie you are my favorite teacher.
Could you help me ? I don´t understand de diference between for and By.
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?
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!
perfect,it was really helpful,
I have a question for you. What sentence is correct
I was late to class today, or I was late for class today.

I love your lessons and the way you explain them . I am also a Teacher in Brazil and my students love your lessons. Actually you have helped my classes too much to illustrate all the subjects I use to teach. Thanks, honey. You are superb!
halo ronnie. i have a question to ask concerning the usage of “to” n “for”.
which one is the correct one?
a. This book is a gift to you.
b. This book is a gift for you.
b) Usually if it is a gift, we use for you!
what should i use- Don’t forget to invite me to\for your marriage.
hi thanks you so much , for all this lesson really this lesson give power for speak with people .
Hi, thanks for the useful lessons. Isn´t it possible to say both. I will sing to you and aslo for you —in the second case in the meaning: as a “gift”? Thanks a lot and bye, Lenka
Hi!! I have a silly question… ok TO is used as transfer or exchange of something, in the expression “Happy birthday TO you…” what do you trasfer/exchange?
Thak for answer :)
Great! Keep up the good work!
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 :)
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.
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
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?
hehe I meant to say > If you want to use proper English, I may speak English but my typing is not so good.
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”.)
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.
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
The only difference is one is North American spelling and the other is British!
Excellent . Thank you very much : )
thank you very much i like your lessons. wish you good luck.
Ronnie, you are spectacular. I like a lot you. But I am unhappy because you do not want talk with me on skype ou by e-mail. I invited you many time and you do not answer me

Hi Alex, thank you very much for you explanation on the Ordering of Adjective, yet I still not understand the adjective the say about Material and Purpose. If possible could you please make the new video about the words that talk about the adjective, thanks very much again.
Thanks for learn.It’s great lesson.
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…
Thank you for lesson
It is very useful
Could you please explain the difference between: Hope, Expect and Wait..? Thanks…
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.
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
Yes, that is correct!
Why is that correct? I can’t see neither transfer or benefit!
Great explanation Ronnie; simple + efficient !
Thank you very much! This lesson is going to help me a lot!!
is a very useful information
thank you for this lesson …this is very easy for me n effective..:)
Thanks,really it was av very good lesson but i have still some confusion about the use of for and to

Have a nice time.
hi Mz.Ronnie, would you explain what’s the difference between “DONE and FINISHED”?.thank you very much.-MAI
Nothing – done and finished mean the same!
Hello Ronnie,The explanation was very good and easy to learn ,i will never forget it,Thanks!!
Thanks a lot Ronnie, I learned long with this video.
Thank you for your assistance.
thank’s a lot
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!
Please make sure you have the latest version of your browser. Some people with old versions of Firefox are having trouble with the quizzes.
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”
” 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!
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
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!
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 !
Very useful piece of information, Thanks you teacher Ronnie.

HI RONNIE I AM SAADAT ALI FROM PAKISTAN I AM MORE LEARN THI WEBSITE MY ENGLISH IS NOW BEETER YOU LOOKING SO BEAUTIFUL I LIKE YOU
MY AGE IS 13
thnaks for help,
my problam is speking and writaing,plz help me plz plz plz
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
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)
“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.
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 )
You scored 5 out of 5.
Hai i from malaysia..thank you so much you explain very well..
where’s the quiz?
22222222222,it is near your comment was made.i like naruto very much.hihihi.
This is a great website. Thank you all, for your efforts to help us who still need to learn a lot about the English language.
Can we use supposed to instead of should? I would be really grateful to u if you can explain to me the different between suppose to be and should. Thanks so much.
thank you so much ronnie. this lesson helped me so much
very very very nice lesson….I LIKED TOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH….
Thanks for explain about this lesson…
I love watching her class. You are perfect and her pronunciation is easy to understand.
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 :)
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……..!!
thanks for your video is so helpful
Thank teacher very very much.I am going to try english.
thank you ms.ronnie.. this lesson helped me so much.. thank you… :)
Why not I’m going to talk for you?
Talking is the transfer of words so we use “to”.
thank you for teaching us..
l like your blink its good for me to smile
thank a lot! im new here. this lesson helps me a lot :)
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 ;)
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???
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.
HELLO RONNIE!!!!HOW ARE YOU DOING?IT WAS A VERY USEFUL ENGLISH LESSON.IT HAS BEEN 5 MONTHS SINCE I STARTED LISTENING TO YOUR LESSONS AND I HAVE TO SAY THAT MY ENGLISH HAS IMPROVED A LOT:THANKS RONNIE.I DON’T KNOW HOW TO THANK YOU.YOUR PUPIL___CARLOS
can you tell me about “from” and could
You made this lesson easy to understand.
kindly explain where we use (TO)
Thank you for sharing your experiences with us!
Hugs from Brazil.
it`s very good and fun
its very useful and easy to understand thank u
Ronnie!thanks for the lesson… it’s enlightening… i’ve a doubt…which is right either saying “during the tenure or in the tenure”
when to use the words small,little,few ,some
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)!
Really mam u give me good way for understand about some English words… Thanks mam..
Really mam u give me good way to understand about some English words… Thanks mam..
Thank you Ronnie
You was perfect!
Thank you Ronnie, this is very help full to me..I like your way of teaching..Thanks again..!!
Hi ronnie . what is the difference between lick and suck

hi guys, there’s someone want speak with me on skype. i translate what i read, but i missing the words when i must speak to someone. thanks a lot, bye
give me your email so we can speak english and improve together!
hi zizie, thanks a lot! my skype nick is “doremifax”
sorry, now i’m “log in”
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!
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
Hi Ronnie I realy like your lessons, one favour
Could tell me when or how is used: “in”, “at”, “on”
I really like ur teaching. I can`t write alot of for u. so , thanks
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.
There is no lesson about on and upon…but upon usually means that you are on top of something. On has many different meanings!
smart and beautiful
Thank you, Ronnie!
i have a nice question for you :)
what does your name mean ?
My name doesn`t mean anything!
Hi Ronnie , I have a question , which one is better to learning english
watching video with native language sub or
watching video with english sub ?
I have another problem , I can undrestand english but when I want to speack in english all words and phrases abandoned me !
With your language subtitles first, then with English subtitles!
Thank you very much!!!!

Iam so glad that these lessons are very useful to improve speaking english in a better way and this way only through engVid and also learning with teacher valen and teacher Ronnie thanks a lot from siyal
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
No, to wanting is not correct!
You can say I want to…!
Thanks, you are very nice
how come your name’s ivram and you’r egyptain
Hi, II`ve been watching some videos ON this site because I have doubts sometimes
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!
For thanks someone in Kurdish language we saying ZOR SUPAS
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?
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!
Thank you! By the way I enjoy watching your lessons, you’re really cool!
Thank you so much ,,Ronnie
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 .
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!
It’s is very useful for me.
I have learnt a lot.
am happy to study eng
hi Ronnie iwould like if can give lesson on subjunctive verb forms like its ahigh time , its time , and its about time . And if you can also explain about ( were i you , and if iwere you ) thanks .

Thank a lot, teacher!

Hi Ronnie . How can I improve my understanding skills in English ?
“It is very important to (for) us”. I’v met both variant. How will be correct?
You don’t need to say to or for us……Just say it is very important.
THANKS FOR SHARING!
please share more lessons
RONNIE PLEASE GIVE A LESSON ON “HAVE HAD” OR “HAD HAD” BOTH IN A SENTENCE LIKE I HAVE HAD THIS BEFORE…SOMETHING LIKE THAT

hi you are very helpfull thank i love you with all respect thank
thank you,,,im from philippines….this tutorial is very helpfull… =)
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.
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.
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.
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)
Thanx Ronnie!! u are my savior!!
i realy happy
I’m good with this lesson
u r simply awesome….
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!
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!!!!
Thank you! I´m so glad to receive your repply!!! I´m your real fan! I´ll never forget this day!!! Kisses fom Brazil!
Thanks Ronnie, its a useful lesson.
Kindly guide me, the use of “have” and “have been”….
Thank you Ronnie.
thank you very much for this lesson.

Zafar Ali Soomro
I have learned alot of and improved my English.
When I make the large sentence it is very confusing and I don’t understand where subject,object and verb go.
Most basic English sentences are….Subject, verb, noun.
I eat cake.
thanks Teacher Ronnie.. i do understand what you talking about, and I learned a lot from you.. Now i know how to use “TO and FOR” in a good sentence.. you are a great teacher.. god bless you
teacher you are realy great.
hi…Ronnie thank you for your lesson i learn a lot
Hello,i have a question, is it correct to said ” How do i call to Colombia, or For Colombia.”
How do I call Colombia. We never use to or for with “call” or most verbs!
hi, Ronnie To & for lesson it helps me too much because i was confused with them( to & for), but now i understand how to use them in the future and that because of you.you are really helpful teacher.
Ronnie, please hepl and explain: Why in the “I’m going to talk to you” is Future? Can I say “I will go to talk to you”?

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!
Believed is past tense. Believe is present tense!
I believed in Santa. I believe in myself!
It’s interesting…we think we know but in the reality we don’t know or we know it wrong…
It helped me a lot I thought i knew it but I was wrong and now, THANK’S RONNIE, I know how to use TO and FOR
ITZ REALLLY GOOD LESSON RONNIE,THNX DEA,it helped me alot,i thought that i know the difference between them well,but i was wrong,when i saw it,i Came to learn the major differences between them,dear i have a little question,which sentence is correct,I am late to work,or i m late for work?
I am late for work is correct!
Hello Ronnie . . . I hope you are well.
In my opinion, you are the best teacher.
You can clearly explain the grammatical rules to me.
Everything you teach is that absolutely excellent.
I can also understand more English Language every time

Nice tips! Thanks
You are a good teacher =)
hi how are you ??? yes i agree
Great!!! but i have a doubt: For example, Peter can´t talk and he must do a very important presentation, so i am very nice with Peter and i talk with Peter: “Peter, i am going to talk FOR you in the presentation…” so, is it possible use FOR in that case? Thanks!!!!
Yes, in that case. for means in place of!
i thanks for you ronne you very weel
Hello! Really? thank u so much for solving my problem. i was completely confused between to and for.well deserved thanks.
Thanks for the tip, I’ve been trying to find a way to explain the diff to my students! :)
To sing to is also used…
I sing to my children!
good job again!! well, please get me some acknowledgement in regard of DIRECT & INDIRECT SPEECHES, if u possibly can. THANKS.
Rebecca has done a lesson on that!!!!!!!!! http://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-reported-speech/
Thank you Ronnie, it is powerful lessons
thank you very much yoyr lesson learn alot
Ronnie,i lake you sense of humour,your stile.You make the lasson not only useful but funny too…thank”s
tnank you ,Ronnie for you lesson!!
thanks a lot for you .
Thank you for your lessons..You are so kind
Thank you. This I haven’t understood.
And this sentence: Have you ever been to China?
Have you ever been to China = in your life, did you travel to China!
tnx a lot
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
thanks alot …. its really useful even i had this doubt for long days now it got over
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?
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
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!!!!
you are great techer ever!!!!
Thanks for this class, you’re so funny, l like that, a feel more confortable to learn.
Good lesson!! but I still have some questions
Which is right? I know how frustrating is for you or I know how frustrating is to you
Thanks in advance
I know how frustrating is for you
Excellent, specially for mentioning Brazilians!
thanks!! you are good techer
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?
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!
nice to meet you RONNIE
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..firstname.lastname@example.org ty ^^
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”!
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!
It means that she believes that the person she is singing about is a good person and can do anything they want to!
Thank you for replay Ronnie.
So, if we talk about regular people, we can also say “I believe IN you”
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!
Yes you can say that! It is very encouraging!
It’s clear to me now. Thank you for the reply.
awesome!!!!!! you are the best!!!
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?
“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!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANKS mam .I am greatly thankful to you
thank u ma’am…
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…
You don’t need to say either “to or for me” – because you are the speaker, I already know YOU think it is easy.!
very useful! thanx for making it simple to understand.God Bless Ms. Ron
ok! dimitra from greece
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 you very much! I´m from Brazil. lol
wow what a nice explanation ,,,thanks
Very good explanation!! Thank you so much!! I loved it!
Thank you Ronnie,I like the way you explain
how to download ur all video ??

I like all your lessons…so exciting and easy to understand…thanks a lot… :)
Ronnie you are a wonderful teacher.I adore your lessons.And your sense of humour.Thanks.
The holiday is going to end when am turning again to school i will sure mis ur lesson madamme
Hi teacher your lessons can be seen by using mobile?
I think so! Just go to the website on your mobile browser!
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?
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”.
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.
Of= belonging to something – King of Spain. House of Blood.
For= to be given to someone. “This flower is for you.”
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??
It was very stressful for her we use if a situation/event caused the stress!
can you tell me plz how to use “the” and how to make a sentance? thans
Hai Ronnie mam , ur videos helps me alot, ur accent, expression, really it motivates alot thnx.
hi Ronnie mam plz explain me abt tenses?
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.
very clear! hard topic for us (Argentinos)…thanks so much for helping us!
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.
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!!
Thank you my dear i loved your lessen
im tring to imbruve my english
useful. thanks Ronnie
I’m a second grade student. I like your Grammar’ lessons very much. Thanks a lot.
thank u very very much ronnie
I’m very happy to know this site
I benefit a lot from you
and I can’t thank you enough
hi Ronnie..you’re videos are really great..very useful..thanks!!
Thanks alot teacher.
hi, miss ronni,
i am nana , from indonesia, thank you very much , i got many thing for you,,,,
please answer my message,,,,, ^_^
Thank you Ronnie!
Have great day :)
you did a big favor for me… thank you so much
thanks alot roonie
but can you tell me what is the difference between which and who
Search on the site for “relative clauses”….you can find the answer there!
Who is for people, which is for things!
and what do wich and who refer to in the sentences
and what do wich and who refer to in the sentences
Thank you Ronnie for your helpful explanation
The lesson is very useful for me, it’s a benefit for us. wow…God bless u, teacher Ron!
beautiful, thanks a lot
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
GOOD I love it
woa.. miss Ronnie are very awesome in teaching! thanks a lot!
I really appreciate that you take the time to make this videos and explain us the english grammar. You do a great job. Congrats !!
hehe thank you,teacher Ronnie :D
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.
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%!
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
Dear teacher your the great
please help me for more learning in English language
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.
The exercise was so complicated FOR you.
I think its because FOR here is your opinion (good/bad)??
Ronnie? What do you think?
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!
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.
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.
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?
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.
Thank you so much for this clear and concise explanation.
“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!!!
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.
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).
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.
Yes, you are correct!
Respected mam ronnie,
i really appreciate your teaching style as you know that when we see any thing in a friendly way so we pick it very fast and we don’t forget it. your teaching style is just like BRAIN “STORMING”
i wish that your were my english teacher in my homeland.
i don’t know how to spek english
Can you please explain :
When to use “FOR” and when to use “OF”
Eg : the objective is to identify the training needs of all the participants
The objective is to identify the training needs for all the participants.
In those sentences, OF and FOR are the same!
This website and these videos are great.
Thank you all!
Kisses from France ;)

Hi, Thanks for your lesson. It’s wonderful. I’ve a question. Which one is correct here:
1.When are you leaving for India?
2.When are you leaving to India?
very nice and simple to understan:)super
thank you for your useful lesson. You explain so interesting. Your lesson is so understandable.
For me you’re the best teacher of ENGVID.
Thanks a lot.
Explanation is very simple.
Can you please explain the below sentence!
“I’m happy TO help you.”
“I’m happy FOR you”
Help is a verb.
You is a pronoun. You cannot say I am happy to you!
Hi Ronnie, it’s great & helpful.
Hope you are fine there!
Could you please provide more objective questions about “to and for lesson”. I presume that you would pride this detail by shortly.
Mohammed Shahith (India)
thank you very much. it is really helpful

thank you Teacher Ronnie.
god bless you.
from egypt with love nothing new you still the best ;)
is it rigth? ‘ it is just for men’ plz ronnie explain it
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.
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.
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
can u explain the use of would and could
Hey – OK!
Hey Ronnie! You are awesome! It s so funny to learn english with you. You have to come to Argentina to try our beer! :) Besos
La última pregunta es una contadicción porque debería ser al revés. Pero bueno, la mentalidad suyacía ahí.
Muchas gracias por tu clase.

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.
Ali did a great job for me.
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!
thanks that was pretty helpful
Thank you very much T- Ronnie .
before I listen to your vedio , I was big confuess when use to – for , but know Iam ok .
- I hope that you are here to give you apresent .
- I hope that you are here so to bay agift for you .
you are the best .
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?
Yes, because you are sending wishes to someone!!! Great observation!
hey ronnie i need your help , i am not able to solve cloze passages type fill in the blanks which usually come in GMAT section
Sorry, I do not understand your question.
Hi Ronnie! Your video was a big help! Can you recommend me some other online tests to practice to/for? Thank you very much!
Sorry, I don’s know any! Just google online english tests.
Ronnie I appreciate all the time that you put on every single video. Your efford, your teaching.. You’re Amazing, Don’t let us fall, keep teaching us as you usually do. Your humble work makes a huge difference to each single person in here. For us trying to learn a new language is a big challenge.. TEACHERS! Thanks for all your hard work… I’m still learning… Bonne Chance, À tout à l’heure.. :)
can you give us a video about tell and say
merci beaucoup ronnie
Very interesting explanation.
this video is not included detail of this subject…ı thınk ıt is not useful..ıt can be more detail and benefical for students who watched video..
hi Ronnie, when i can use(at,in,on)
I want ask u some thing Ronnie
how can I learn paragraph, I’m so confused from paragraph
How about these sentences :
1) He was really nice TO us.
2)She’s responsible FOR this whole mess.
Could you explain that ? Thanks!
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!
I got it!
Hello Ronnie, can you explain to me the diference between “That and What” .
What is a question.
That is a pronoun and an adjective.
thanks a lot Miss
I’m really happy I found this website. You have the best way to teach, by the way I have a question.
Notes TO/FOR myself.
A reminder TO/ FOR myself.
I really appreciated your help.
You can use both to/for in both!
Hi, Ronnie, how are you hope you are fine well while speaking i confuse in two things first one where i used the with and where i used for and to as well so describe it all the things for me and 2nd one is where is use have??????
hello maam, it was a pleasure to watch this video. now it is clear to me the differnce btwn to and for.. i have a question. when we give smbdy a card or any other gift, we write on it ‘to bob’ or smthng like that. it is a kind of trasfer,but it does him good also like he feels happy to get it. it may be a type of beneficial. so why don’t we wrte ‘for bob’? plz tell me..thnk u..
You can write either for or to!
Thank you so much for this lesson.
I had this problem between TO/FOR…. for long time but now I can understand.
This web site is amazing and you are so funny.
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
“Would you like to have a cup of coffee”. Yes! This is correct!
Have been = present perfect. Search Engvid for “present perfect”.
Parts Of Speech
Every name is called a noun As field and fountain, street and town; In place of noun the pronoun stands, as he and she can clap their hands; The adjective describes a thing, as magic wand or bridal ring; the verb means action, something done to read and write, to jump and run; How things are done the adverbs tell, as quickly, slowly,badly,well; the preposition shows relation, as in the street or at the station;conjunctions join in many ways, sentences , words, or phrase and phrases; The interjection cries out ,Hark! I need an examination mark.
I loved this lesson. I really need to learn about more preposition such as:
ON, IN, AT,UPON, OVER, SINCE, FOR, INTO, UP, DOWN, BENEATH, TILL,
CAN U PLZ HELP ME OUT.
i loved that lesson.
can u plz help me to understand abt more prep such as:
over, upon, in, on, at, for , since,untill, into,up, down and else.
Search the site for “prepositions”, there are already lessons for you!
thanks a lot! :) I’m enlightened.. :)
I am happy and thankful for all the assistance you all provide to us. could you tell me which sentence is correct.
I am looking forward to spring break.
I am looking forward for spring break.
Ronnie thank you very much for your explanation and the lesson. I’m learning a lot! I’d like to ask you to prepare a lesson with real Enlish ’cause I don’t understand a native speaker very well! How to lern with movies or songs? Please, help me!!!!
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!
what is the correct use
“dedicated to or for”
Ronnie thank you very much for your explanation and the lesson. You are very good teacher.
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?
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.
Thanks for sharing.
“Looks good to me” is correct but how to explain not to use “Looks good for me” based on the explanation?
