A great lesson. Thanks. :)

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    everyone in my house makes their bed when they get out of it. but my mom usually does everything related to cleaning the house. she does the dishes, and sometimes my sister helps her by loading the dishwasher. My mom always asks us to come to eat before even she sets the table. In Morocco people should always expect guests to come over, and most of the time guests do not tell they are coming.That’s why mom regularly vacuums the carpet, dusts the furniture, and sweeps the house everyday. Dad sometimes helps by doing the laundry or ironing the clothes. our house like most houses here doesn’t have a lawn, but if there was one, probably my dad who would mow it and take care of it. when it comes to the trash, I am the one who is responsible of taking it out.

    Great lesson Rebecca Thank you.

    Thursday, March 31st 2016

      GOOD.

      Saturday, April 9th 2016

      Good writing. I’m from Brazil. I had the opportunity to visit Morocco a couple of months ago. It was one of the best trips I ever took.

      Monday, April 18th 2016

      WOW, Nabil. You wrote that very well. You are clearly quite fluent in English. What a wonderful way you used all that vocabulary. Thanks for sharing about the customs in Morocco. Very interesting to hear about it. All the best to you, Nabil. You will go far with your English. Take my word for it.

      Wednesday, April 20th 2016

      Good writing

      Wednesday, July 13th 2016

This is a very, very useful lesson.
A huge thank you, Rebecca.

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    I am so glad you found the lesson so useful. Thanks so much for your kind feedback, Canardo. All the best to you.

    Wednesday, April 20th 2016

Thank you, Rebecca

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

10/10… Thanks Rebecca…whenever think about within house cleaning i mostly used clean word for any kind of activities but now understood which are the verbs we suppose to use…Many thanks!

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    So glad you succeeded in expanding your vocabulary through this lesson. Thanks for your feedback. Now as you do each of those things around the house, you can practice your newly-learned vocabulary! My best wishes to you, Shank.

    Wednesday, April 20th 2016

I’m very happy to learn this website

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

In Q9, is’sweep’ a good answer, too? I sweep the mud stains, for example.

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    I guess you could do that! I guess the idea was that mud stains would be removed more easily with water, if we mop the floor. All the best!

    Wednesday, April 20th 2016

Thanks

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

it was an excellent presentation
i got 7 correct out of 10

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    So glad you found the lesson helpful. All the best with your English, Jacy.

    Wednesday, April 20th 2016

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

Thank you Rebecca, your lesson is essential for all people who wants to learn english speaking.

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    Thanks, Ukrit. Yes, we need all kinds of vocabulary to speak about our everyday lives. All the best!

    Wednesday, April 20th 2016

I love to clean the house!!

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

Thank you very much Rebecca!!!Nice, easy and useful lesson ;)

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    But you’ll have to put down the guitar first to do all that cleaning! Keep on rocking, my friend.

    Wednesday, April 20th 2016

Thanks a lot, Rebecca! That’s exactly what I need for recycling “around the house” vocab with my students. At Beginner/Elementary level it can be quite challenging to get students to use all these collocations as in the video, as in our L1 we have much fewer of them.

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    Thanks so much for your kind feedback, Maria. So glad you found the lesson useful for your students. Please let me know if your students have any special questions or areas of difficulty and feel free to recommend lessons for us to record for them. All the best to you and your students from all of us here at engvid.

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    Hi, I agree with you.

    Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    Thanks for your kind words. So glad to hear you found the lesson helpful. Remember to be careful with the words “your” and “you’re”. You wanted to use the second one in your comment, because “you’re” is short for you are. All the best to you, Ameca.

    Wednesday, April 20th 2016

thanks very important definitions

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

Thanks for your lesson

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

Very useful lesson, Rebecca. Thank you!

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

Nice job Rebecca! Thank you for this lesson!

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

Hi Rebecca, thanks for this video, it is very useful.

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

Thank Rebecca for such a useful lesson.

The present is to ask you whether the following phrase is correct.

“Creating managers for tomorrow!”

Personally, I don’t think that the word “creating” is appropriate here since we cannot create someone. Could you please explain me about this.

Regards,

Lee

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    Well, you have a good point. However, in marketing language, one could use the word “create” in that way. Thanks for taking such an interest in the language and the thinking behind it. All the best to you, Lee.

    Wednesday, April 20th 2016

Briefly and clearly. Thank you for the lesson.

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    Short and sweet. You’re welcome. My best wishes to you.

Thank you very very much, Edinho, and all our viewers. My best wishes to you.

    Wednesday, April 20th 2016

Thanks for the video…Could you make a video related to what a person does daily?? like getting up, brush teeth, take shower… something like that with lots of expressions that might be useful…

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

    Thanks for the lesson suggestion, Kevin. Alex had recorded a similar lesson some years ago, which you might find useful:
    http://www.engvid.com/present-simple-tense/

Friday, April 1st 2016

Hi rebecca, I just want to ask you a question please; Is it correct to say wash the dishes?

Friday, April 1st 2016

    Yes, you could say that. However, sometimes washing the dishes is only one part of the job, as after that you have to dry the dishes, put them away in the cabinets, etc. So when we say “do the dishes”, we usually mean the whole job, in all its parts. Thanks for your interest and all the best to you, Tarik.

    Thursday, April 21st 2016

Sunday, June 19th 2016

Its my habit all the time to make the bed when it doesn’t look attractive. Sometimes I do the dishes when there is too much load of guests at home so I help my sister by doing the dishes. I often set the table when guests come to my home. But I never cleared the table. I do not like to clear the table. Frequently I vacuum the carpet of my room. I always iron my clothes I don’t say anyone to iron my clothes. I like to do my own work by ironing the clothes. I fold my dresses on weekly basis. I like to dust my furniture because I need my clothes to be clean. Our mad sweep and mop the floor regularly and she cleans the house everyday.
