    Monday, June 13th 2011

    hi there . You don’t be worry , when you say with someone about something . It’s up to situation that they will know what you say with them …. i have met this case and I have asked my foreign teacher . Can i make friend with you ?

    Sunday, August 21st 2011

    hi there , you don’t worry about that .. when you say a sentence then they will know what you say ( this is verb or noun ) .It’s up to situation of sentence …. beacause have very many countries said English , them hear very fast (even the voices are small )

Saturday, March 5th 2011

hi

Saturday, March 5th 2011

Hello Ronnie!
Your lessons are very helpful (I’ve seen all of them)und I’m grateful for what you do for all of us.
I have some questions, or it’s better to say, a suggestion.
I wonder if you could create a lesson about the differences between “start” and “begin” (and on the other hand “finish” and “end”).
I’ve looked up by a dictionary, aber the explanation there is so, “start means to begin…”
It’s a circle :(
It will be also interesting, if you explain, when we should use:
– finish + verb-ing/+to infinitive
– start + verb-ing/+to infinitive
– begin + verb-ing/+to infinitive
Thanks a lot in advance. I keep watching.

Saturday, March 5th 2011

    I meant, what is the difference:
    – between “start” and “begin”
    – and also between “finish” and “end”

    Saturday, March 5th 2011

    Start and begin are the same but we usually use start in conversation. Begin seems too formal.
    Finish and end are essentially the same but we use end to talk about roads, streets, lines.
    Finish we to talk about tasks…I finished my homework. I finished the book.

    Sunday, March 6th 2011

      now you two to mention it. What is the difference between finish and end up. I’m getting quite confused with this. thanks and kind regards

      Saturday, April 21st 2012

        Finish means you stopped doing something. I finished my homework.
        End up is the result of something. I ended up in Siberia.

        Sunday, April 22nd 2012

thanks alot Ronnie

hi your lesson is very good for me thanks .can you tell me what is mean (share)and(twitter)

Friday, March 11th 2011

    Share and Twitter…..Twitter is a social networking site like “Facebook”.
    Share (verb) means to give something to someone else. On Twitter and Facebook you share information.

    Sunday, March 13th 2011

u r great,thank u very much:)

Friday, March 11th 2011

Thank you so much for making a webside like this. Im from Norway, so websides like this makes it easier!!:)

Sunday, March 13th 2011

Hi Teacher Ronnie Can u tell me how to post our pics in facebook and u are a great teacher i have ever met worldwide

Sunday, March 13th 2011

    Sorry I cannot explain how to post pics on Facebook. You can use the verb have/has but in North American it is more common to use the axillary verb “do”.

    Sunday, March 13th 2011

      Ronnie, sorry to say, but you are making too much grammar mistakes. It is correct to write “auxiliary verb” etc. Don’t be angry, I’m just noticing all mistakes I can, and it is the best way to learn something. I wish you all the best

      Sunday, May 22nd 2011

        I meant too many mistakes, I made one too. . .

        Sunday, May 22nd 2011

and one thing more i would like to suggest regarding a matter in question Tags can we write have nt it instead on doesnt it

Sunday, March 13th 2011

Because of that, I prefer to say: ” sheet of paper”….lol

Thanks for the video, dear teacher!

Monday, March 14th 2011

Thanks Ronnie for informing me about this matter . 1 thing more i would like to suggest that can we use grand pa instead of granpa or grandma instead of gramma

Tuesday, March 15th 2011

Ronnie your teaching power is oustanding and a power that no one can win it .

Friday, March 18th 2011

Thank you

Wednesday, March 23rd 2011

Ronnie, you are so cute and unusual))) It`s a pleasure to watch your lessons. Keep teaching us and we`ll try to get better in knowledge. May I suggest something? Could you do lesson about such words as “wanna”, “gonna”, “gotta”? It would be very helpful for your students. Best regards. Natalie.

Wednesday, April 6th 2011

Ronnie,

In my language Tamil Ronnie (Rani) means Queen.
You are really a Queen in English teaching.

Thanks

Tuesday, April 12th 2011

Ms. Ronnie you’re very effective teacher for me..the way you teach is very very cool not boring..and I can easily understand what you are saying.. ;) good luck

Saturday, April 16th 2011

Dear Ronnie,
thank you for your lesson which was very clear. I have a strange request!! Would it be possible for you to make a video with all the letters of the alphabet? (spelling) I mean I’d like you pronounce them all once (a,b,c…z!) because I confuse the pronounciation of some letters and I’m not always able to understand the address email of my customers on the phone!!! (when they spell it!)Thank you for your help.

Wednesday, April 20th 2011

Hi Ronnie,
your way of teaching is sooo charismatic! I love it:-)
And I have a question regarding this lesson about “s” sound in the middle of words or in word junctions. For example, when people say “classroom”, it seems that they pronounce “clashroom”..? Is this correct?

Wednesday, April 27th 2011

    It is not correct to pronounce classroom as “clashroom”. A lot of ESL students make this mistake because the “SSSSSS” is difficult to say for some people!
    Also, a lot of times we say “s” like a “Z” sound – for example boys sounds like ” boyz”.

    Wednesday, April 27th 2011

Dear Ronnie,
I really need your help! I mix up the pronunciation of some letters of the alphabet. It’s a big problem for me because I can’t write the names of the persons during a spelling. (I can’t write correctly their address email!)Please make a video about the pronunciation of the english alphabet!! Thank you!

Saturday, April 30th 2011

    Ok I will do that for you!

    Saturday, April 30th 2011

      hi ronnie , i want to asked you a question . the “s” and “z” sounds in the end of word .Eg ” Lips –> lipz “. when we say fast . this ” z “sound hear like “s” sound . Is it right ? and Is this sound important in communication . when i said like that , do everyone understand ?

      Sunday, August 21st 2011

        Hai! I hope my answer can give you helpful.
        The sound of lips no /lipz/, is / lips/ because when the endings of the word such as p, t, k, f, th, we should sound the ending word is /-s/. If you want more clearly explanation, i suggest you can watch Emma’s video which is ” pronunciation S endings”.

        Good luck.

        Tuesday, March 27th 2012

thank you so much

Friday, May 13th 2011

hi ronnie…ur english lessons are really excellent and very useful for us…but basically i have some probs. Tht i cant speak english confidently even though i can easily understand all accent english.but cant speak what should i do now..its been a very big problem for me how can i fix this prob. Pls help me i want to speak english without any hesitation….pls give me some advice to fix my prob…

Saturday, August 20th 2011

hi Ronnie , i want to asked you a question . the “s” and “z” sounds in the end of word .Eg ” Lips –> lipz “. when we say fast . this ” z “sound hear like “s” sound . Is it right ? and Is this sound important in communication . when i said like that , do everyone understand ?

Monday, August 22nd 2011

    Lips – sounds like an “s” all the time – never a “z”.
    The basic rules are – if the END of the word is voiced = your throat vibrates you say it as a “Z”. (n,d,v,e,r) eg —pens, reads, goes, lives cars, sees, hears.
    If it is unvoiced =your throat doesn’t vibrate. ( t, p, k, c, g.) You sound it like a “S” gets, bags, looks, stops, rice.
    Hope that helps!

    Monday, August 22nd 2011

      thanks so much …. i hope you have good many lesson

      Saturday, August 27th 2011

hi Ronnie…I am from Philippines, I have a question about the letter s, some people think that I have a problem pronouncing it. I just hope you could hear me, because someone told me that there’s no problem. pronouncing different from what they do, does it means I’m wrong. And if I do, what should I do to make it right.
