Hi Ronnie.U r great teacher.Thx a lot.I’ve question.U said that we should use hung out instead of “play”. So, If I want to say “I played boling (football, golf and so on) with my friend yesterday” for this I’ve to say “I hung out boling (football, golf and so on) with my friend yesterday”. Am I right?

    Terani.
    No, cuz you´re specifying what you´ve played.
    Play means sex when it´s used without an object.

    Tuesday, September 11th 2012

    I don’t know if it’s allowed for me to answer your question but I’ll take a chance and try to help Ms. Ronnie. You don’t have to replace every “play” with “hang out”, it’s not like you omitting this word out of dictionaries. For example, you can still say “I played some music” or “I played chess the other day” or “I played with my son yesterday” or “they played with the exam results”, and none of those “play” has a sexual context.

    Tuesday, September 11th 2012

    It is about “to hang out” and not “hung out”.I like to hang out with my friends on internet. I like to spend time wherever /whenever without a prealable schedule .Teenagers often enjoy to hang out around icecream shop(spend time together) after last course,before to go home.

    Thursday, September 13th 2012

    If it is a sport/game you need to say play, not hang out!

    Wednesday, September 19th 2012

      Thank you very much, Ronnie and also thank you Felipe, Adham, Jorjel for your help.

      Friday, September 21st 2012

    I think Ms Ronnie said that you hang out with your friend. (Means you play something right?) Then your answer would be: I hang out with my friend to play sb yesterday. That should be the better one. I ask my teacher already. ^^ I hope you understand.

Thanx miss

but pleas help me / which one is correct

this one

- when does john go to the school ?

or

- when did john goes to the school ?

please help me , great teacher

Monday, September 10th 2012

    I think “When did John goes to school” => “When did John go to school”.

    Monday, September 10th 2012

    Hi there,
    The 1rst one is right n it’s present simple but the 2nd one is Not.If u wanna use past tense,u have 2 use:When did John ” go ” 2 the school?
    Past tense question:( Did+simple verb ).
    e.g. 1.When did u do the quiz?
    2.Did ur mom make a sandwich 4 u last evening?
    3.When did u watch engvid 4 the 1rst time?!
    Does it help??!
    Glad I could help :)
    The best with ur English!

    Monday, September 10th 2012

    When did John go to school (past tense).
    When does John go to school (present tense)!

    Friday, September 21st 2012

i live your course!!! thanks for teachme!!

Monday, September 10th 2012

I think it could be better for the students who are learning English if the videos have synchronous options .That will provide a more visual way to understand the contents by catching the characters when hearing a word that has no idea about its meaning.

Monday, September 10th 2012

I have being speaking English for about 15 years, and this is the first time I see an explanation of the vowels sounds, interesting!

Monday, September 10th 2012

Thank you Ronnie, interesting lesson, Could you record a video about IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet), please.

thank you Ronnie you make me excited .

Wednesday, September 12th 2012

hi teacher Ronnie,
THANKS TEACHER RONNIE , THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT…

Wednesday, September 12th 2012

Hello Ronnie!

Thanks.

I have a question.
At the lesson “Conversation Skills – Speak with confidence” you said, “If a person wants to talk to you, they will talk to you.” (“a person” changes to “they”). How to say a sentence like this one. “If a student takes exams, he (she) will get grant.” What word can I use instead of “she” or “he”, if I mean one person and I want to talk about general.
Is it a rule when “one person” can change to “they” if I talk about a person in general (a man or woman)?

Wednesday, September 12th 2012

    Yes, you can just use “they”!

    Wednesday, September 19th 2012

    All I know is this: If we have a sentence which has, for example, two parts, and we use a singular subject in the first part of the sentence, we should use a singular subject in the second part of the sentence too. For instance:

    “If you know someone, tell him something.” — Many people would say: “If you know someone, tell them something.” Anyway this is a grammar bug, but people speak in this way very often, especially in daily speech.

    Sunday, September 23rd 2012

i really love the way u teach people. really want to be student on your class.

Wednesday, September 12th 2012

Thank you Ronnie..

Thursday, September 13th 2012

Hi Ronnie, you’re a Wonderful teacher.
I have lots of problems with the regular verbs pronunciation, I can’t notice the different between the present and the past, for instance “hear” – “heard” and so on. Would you mind make a special class about it?
Thanks

Thursday, September 13th 2012

    OK! I’ll try to make a lesson for you!

    Monday, September 17th 2012

Ronnie,,,I will thank u if u make a video about how to pronounce the linking words,prepositions and adverbs like then quickly through the sentence…

      Im searching in urban dictionaries.. Ive found a lot of words
      One Nike in the grave= what’s it mean???
      One Nike in the rave=

      Sunday, September 23rd 2012

        Urban Dictionary is full of jokes and useless material. Do not waste your time there if you are learning English.

        Thursday, September 27th 2012

        One Nike in the grave is a play on the idiom “one foot in the grave”. It means you are going to die soon. Nike = shoe brand.
        One Nike in the rave = Rave is a electronic dance party popular in the late 90′s. So that means one foot was at the party.

        Saturday, October 6th 2012

          Hi Ronnie,

          Currently in India “Rave Party” is considered to be a negative thing and often refers to the parities those involved dance,drugs and sex. Is this definition correct in modern days? and if not what word will you used to refer such parties.

          Monday, December 24th 2012

Ronnie, the way you teach is more than effective-it makes me laugh so much. Thank you engvid team and thank you Ronnie.

Thursday, September 20th 2012

thanks a lot it is so useful

Thursday, September 20th 2012

Ronnie:
you are the teacher whom I wished to teach me when I was child

Thursday, September 20th 2012

Why does the word “out” have 1 syllable ? It has two vowel sounds.

Thursday, September 20th 2012

    The “ou” in “out” is what’s called a diphthong — a vowel sound that is a combination of two. Other diphthongs are the “i” in “right” (raaa-ight) and the “ow” in “tow” (toh-ooooo). They contain two vowel sounds, but are spoken in one syllable.

    Monday, September 24th 2012

      Oh man, that’s why I quit that linguistics course.

      Thursday, September 27th 2012

I like you because you not very good teacher,you too good,rally i respect you.

Please tell me :– why this is correct ..
The intelligence of many wild animals is indeed amazing.
My question why we not use “many wild animals are” plz explain it ?

Sunday, September 23rd 2012

    We use is because the subject is “intelligence” (not many animals). Intelligence is uncountable!

Hi, ms ronnie..can i have your email address so that i can email you about my problems.

here are some common grammar which i am confused..
1)if the word followed by never and havent, the verb must be in past tense form or basic verb.( eg, i never do that before or i never done that before , i havent tell the teacher yet or i havent told the teacher yet?)

2) what is she eating or what is her eating?

3) i never had a boyfriend before or i never had a boyfriend..(do we need to add the word “before” in the last sentences of never)

waiting for your reply. thank you.

Thanks, I always wanted and asked to my teachers for an explanation without success, I think that greatly improves the ability to say and do the right emphasis on each word. Sensational, thank you very much!

Thursday, September 27th 2012

hello Ms Ronnie,

Very nice class indeed. Mistake noted.

Hi Ronnie ,why the (out) word is 1syllable.it was 2 vowel sounds(o,u) ?

Thursday, October 4th 2012

    Out only has 1 vowel sound. The “ou” sounds like one. In English, we call these diphthongs. A diphthong is 2 vowels that when together, make one vowel sound!

    Saturday, October 6th 2012

Ronnie, I’m so happy to have discovered engVid. I’m an ELD teacher in California. I’ve used some of your videos to give the students a break from me. I really like your presentations. mo

Thursday, October 4th 2012

I would rather learn with Engvid on webpage than Facebook page.

Friday, October 5th 2012

1)You can use never + base, if you talk about your daily routine. EX.. I never eat seafood.
If you want to talk about your past experience, you have to use present perfect. EX I have never eaten seafood. (sub + have/has + never + past participle). OR I haven’t eaten seafood. ( Sub+ have not + past participle).

2) What is she eating….is correct. She =is a pronoun, it replaces a person’s name. Her =is possessive. It tells us who has the noun!

3) Before is unnecessary unless you want to emphasize (make stronger) your sentence. However, you must say I HAVE never had a boyfriend!

Wednesday, October 17th 2012

mam , how “university” could be 5 vowel sounds? if “u” considers as vowel sound,we should use “an university ” but we use “a university” so i understand “u” is not sounds vowel , right ? please correct me if i am wrong. thank u.

Thursday, October 18th 2012

U is a vowel sound!

Thursday, October 18th 2012

Hi Ronnie. Can you explain me why the word out has only one syllable? I though it has two sounds.

Tuesday, October 23rd 2012

    Awi, I had the same problem. I thought that “out” was pronounced /a//oot/. I got that wrong in the test. Ronnie, help us!! Please!!!

    Wednesday, September 11th 2013

Gracias!!! thankyou

Wednesday, October 24th 2012

Hi there,Ronnie! A doubt came to my mind…”Noisy” or “Polite” are 2-syllables words, however, they can have both comparative/superlative structures. What’s the reason? I mean, is there any rule for those 2-syllables words which also work in the “short” form? Really appreciate your time.

Thursday, October 25th 2012

    Noisy, because it ends in a Y, must be nosiest.
    A lot of 2 syllable words can use either -est or most. However, to make it easy, I just gave 1 example…..to keep it simple!

    Tuesday, October 30th 2012

Thank you, greetings from Colombia

Thursday, October 25th 2012

thanks a lot Ms. Ronie…
because of you i learn a lot…

Friday, October 26th 2012

out have 1 syllables I think when I say out I feel 2 vowel sound isn’t true ?
thanks miss Ronnie really enjoyed with lesson :)

Saturday, October 27th 2012

    Hi Muhammad,
    you can not separate the first vowel.

    Sunday, October 28th 2012

    Yes, there are 2 vowels, but together, they make one vowel sound!

    Tuesday, October 30th 2012

9points oh yeah!!! but why ‘clash’ is 1 syllable?? please could you tell me reason?

Saturday, October 27th 2012

    Hi, try to separate clash ( cla-sh ) or ( clash )? just one syllable.

    sorry!

    Monday, October 29th 2012

    1 Vowel,1 syllable. Clash.

    Tuesday, October 30th 2012

Good evening, Ronnie
I believe that this is the second most important lesson after learning letters! I would like you to recommend me a book or a handbook to refer to the division into syllables (vowel sounds) of words.
Please recommend me you give me a link, a book that can be downloaded or can buy.
Thank you in advance.
