      Monday, September 23rd 2013

Rebecca, I’m really in love with your way of teaching. Thank you very much for helping all of us with your videos.

This way of teaching something (in my opinion) is the best way of all, because we can catch lots of words in a unique context. It’s a little bit longer than usual, but it’s richer of information. I hope you give us more classes like this one. Thank you very much.

    Thanks, Raul. Yes, unfortunately, we have to speak about whatever happens in life – good or bad. Try to write a short summary of what happened, using some of the new vocabulary. That will help you review the words, too. My best to you.

Hi Rebecca,
Your lesson was comprehensible. And I found new English Vocabulary.I am in Intermediate Grade but some words are truly difficult and hard to understand like, Calamity, Tragedy, Inundate(flood), destitute, evacuate, etc.But after understanding them they were so easy.The lecture you delivered and the event that you mentioned in this Lecture was really tragic.This happened in Pakistan. The flood is entering in all sea level areas and destroying them. The villages containing crops, trees, rice paddies and farms are all destroyed.I am also living in Pakistan But safe because of highland towns.
Thank you for your lesson.Bye

Saturday, September 18th 2010

    Thank you kindly for your message. I am so sorry about this tragedy in your country and we all hope that more people can be helped as soon as possible. There are so many urgent needs there. Thank you for writing and do take care of yourself.

Monday, September 20th 2010

    Hi Constanza. That’s a really good question. The past tense, pledged, is pronounced with a muted d sound, but it does sound quite close to the t sound too! You are a very smart student! My best wishes to you, Constanza.

    Thursday, September 23rd 2010

Hi Rebecca, i liked this lesson very much and learnt some new words as well.I like your english accent it is very precise so I pick some words from your speech as well, actually i am preparing myself for my IELTS test which is after one month so i am keep watching engvid videos to improve my english since i need 7 band in IELTS.I am very weak in writing so too scared.
well this video was very informative, simply awesome. I cant thankyou enough for such a hard efforts for us.
please do let me know if i wrote something wrong in my comment.

Thursday, September 23rd 2010

    Thanks for the feedback. You can find writing tips on my IELTS website. You can also find free sample IELTS essays there, which can help you.

    Overall, you communicate well in English and I think you can do well. Keep studying though because the IELTS can be tricky. Please watch How to Structure Your TOEFL Essay on engVid. It will help you with your IELTS essay too. Since you asked, here are some of your errors:

    – I pick up some words from your speech as well. ( not I pick some words..)
    – I keep watching engVid videos. (not I am keep watching…)

    All the best with your English, Amy.

    Thursday, September 23rd 2010

      thanks you kindly Rebecca for letting me know about my mistakes i really appreciate that u spent ur precious time by answering me, indeed u r a unique teacher i am really impressed by u.I am glad that u posted nice comments to me that i can do well:):_
      and Rebecca could u plz make a lesson or just let me know by msg that when we can use word intend to and tend to
      actually i am too confused.
      thanks alot

      Friday, September 24th 2010

        “I intend to become a doctor.” means that I plan to become a doctor.

        “I had intended to call you, but it got late.” means that I had planned to call you, but it didn’t work out.

        “I tend to eat the wrong foods when I’m on a diet.” means that I am inclined to breaking my diet. It means I have a bad habit of eating the wrong foods while dieting.

        “He tends to study for tests at the last minute.” means that he has a bad habit of studying just before the test, instead of studying in advance.

        “Tend to” does not have to refer to negative behavior but is often used in this way.

        Hope this helps, Amy. Best wishes.

        Wednesday, September 29th 2010

          thanks a million and billion Rebecca. I must appreciate that and i am appreciating from the bottom of my heart…u cleared my doubt wonderful job…. u r the one the nicest teacher I have ever seen….

Dear Rebecca,
Thank you very much for your lessons. They are very interesting. I love your voice, I can understand every word. I would like to understand this expression : “Both a and b”. Can you help me? Can you give me an other example? Thanks a lot.

Thursday, September 23rd 2010

    Thanks for your feedback. If you are asking about the expression, “Both a and b” from the quiz, it simply means that the correct answer is both the a answer and the b answer. Hope this helps. My best wishes to you, joelle.

    Please check the list of grammar lessons on engvid. You will find some lessons on prepositions there. All the best to you.

    Wednesday, September 29th 2010

good morning

I can not read fluently.i got stuck in between
I am working on it by reading newspaper loudly. But that’s not working a lot for me.
I request you to please recommend me something

Tuesday, September 28th 2010

    Whenever something becomes difficult for us, we need to drop back a little to find the last level at which we felt comfortable, and then build up from that point once again. In this way, we can make breakthroughs in challenging areas. Don’t worry. The same thing happens to me when I am trying to learn another language.

    Try to find some books which focus on developing English reading skills and which come in graded levels. Start at a level a little lower than your current abilities to build confidence and move quickly. Then, go forward steadily to higher levels from there. Play word games to help you get more comfortable with the language. there are many such games available online as well.

    You seem to have a lot of motivation to improve, and that is your strength. All the best to you, Mayan.

hi,Rebecca i hope u r fine…can u please suggest me how can i improve my english? i can’t speak english fluently.I like to speak english like other people but i can’t.Please give me some easy tips :)

Saturday, October 2nd 2010

    Be bold and proactive. That means don’t wait for opportunities to come to you, but go out and create whatever you need to achieve your goal of speaking English well.

    Aside from reading, writing, listening and speaking English as much as possible, one of the fastest ways I know to improve your English is to work with a good private teacher. He or she will correct your specific mistakes and enable you to make progress by overcoming your difficulties. If it is too expensive to get a private teacher, perhaps you can exchange services. I wish you all the best.

    Tuesday, October 12th 2010

      thanx for ur kind reply.I’ll follow your advice.thank u soooooooo much :D

    Yes, you are absolutely right. You can flood or inundate a place with water, for example, as in the lesson, or you can flood or inundate a person with love, good wishes, etc.

    Good for you for recognizing the various ways in which this word can be used. In the video lesson, we have limited time to explain all aspects of word usage. I wish you all the best in the future, and I am sure you will do well, as you seem to be very dedicated, huynh_tantai.

why you use the article ” the with homeless , the injured, etc

Sunday, November 21st 2010

    We say “the homeless” because we are referring to the entire group of such people. Other examples of the same principle: the poor, the visually-impaired, the injured, etc.

    All the best, Wallace.

I faced a word “devastation” in news and as I checked in dictionary it means “destruction”, is there any difference between them?

Thanks in advance

Sunday, January 2nd 2011

    Devastation is somewhat stronger than destruction. It usually means something closer to “completely destroyed”.

    All the best to you.

“I feel so sad about the clamity that occured to the fate of Pakistan. Evacuting the inhabitants because of the catastrophe, distributing the donations among flood victoms, and aiding those who were injured was a great target. The response was appreciable and some countries pledged to provide with more donations. I’m glad that this trageddy has normalised to a great extant by now”

Sunday, May 1st 2011

Thank you Rebeca for your persistence to teach us English language. . . I must say this is, without suspicion, the best lesson I’ve ever heard. . . Please, in the future try to make longer lessons as much as you can, because it’s the best way to learn something. . . So many different words, synonyms, explanations etc. can help us by learning. All the best to you, and good luck. . .

Sunday, May 1st 2011

Why you teachers never answer to last comments? It can be frustrating for all of us who didn’t have a chance to leave comment first or second . I understand that you don’t have enough time to respond to every comment, but try to respond, for example to first comment, then skip over several comment, then go in the middle etc. and finally to the end. Thank you. . .

Hi Rebecca, very interesting lesson! I read above that you’ll do more lessons on topics in the news. May I suggest you new topics for these lessons? What do you think of themes like “ELECTION” (= poll, vote, opposition…), or “ECONOMY” (= crisis, unemployment, export/import..) or maybe a theme a little more funny like ART (= release of film, CD, edition of a book, reviews…)? Best Regards.
