Sunday, August 21st 2016

    I have discovered that learners often continue to make basic mistakes, even as they become more advanced and fluent. So, strengthening the basics is always helpful. I wish you all the best.

    Monday, August 22nd 2016

      Dear teacher, that’s my biggest problem. Sometimes I forget the basics and get very embarrassed.Thank you very much for this lesson.

Sunday, August 21st 2016

    Thanks. Yes, it’s very helpful to review the basics, even as we reach higher levels. All the best to you.

Sunday, August 21st 2016

Can I ask U a question, Rebecca. What’s is MBA? I hope it won’t take too long

Sunday, August 21st 2016

Thanks, Rebecca.
But I want to ask ‘in-class performance’
‘in-class’ what does it mean here?

Monday, August 22nd 2016

    It can refer to many actions you take in the classroom that can improve your academic success, such as participating in class, attending lectures regularly, submitting assignments on time, doing homework and required reading, taking notes, paying attention, and so on. All the best to you!

    Monday, August 22nd 2016

Hello Rebecca , hello everybody ,
Very useful expression used so many times to say how much time something requires to be done . Personaly I used it a lot when being abroad and asking for my way to the train station for example . This is a good way to start a discussion rather than speaking about the weather and a lot of people are ready to help you find your way or just to speak with you providing your are polite and not to much boring .
Always interesting to review
Thank you Rebecca

I’m a italian music teacher; I’m 55 years old and I try to learn English with Engvid. I ask myself if this aim is too hard and difficult for me. English is very useful and I like it very much! But I am so old… In any case I want to try it! I want express my great gratitude for all teachers that share their lessons in this marvelous site. In particular, dear Rebecca, your lessons are very clear, simple and useful. I hope that you and your colleagues will continue your important mission. Thank you from my heart. (sorry for my poor and bad grammar!)

Monday, August 22nd 2016

    Thanks so much for your warm and kind words, Antonio. It means a lot to us to hear from our viewers and understand who they are and what they need. I am very happy to hear that our lessons are helping you to improve your English, which I must say is quite good already. It is never too late to learn a language; adults have motivation, desire, and discipline on their side and can be very successful learners. In fact, learning a language is one the best ways to keep our brains healthy, along with learning to play a musical instrument! Even if we’re not learning for academic reasons, we can get a lot of pleasure and enjoyment from communicating in another language. It also opens up a whole new cultural world, which I hope you are enjoying, Antonio. You have expressed yourself very well in this comment, and written genuinely and authentically. I am sure, as a teacher, you also encourage your students with a lot of passion and compassion. Thank you very much and my best wishes to you.

    Monday, August 22nd 2016

      I’m very happy for your response; it gives me hope and motivation to continue. Persons like you can make the difference in people’s lives. Thanks a lot dear teacher.

      Wednesday, August 24th 2016

        Hello Mr antoniozeffiro, if you like, we can improve each other using Skype: julio.ortigoza2 is mine! Bye for now!

        Monday, August 29th 2016

        Antonio, I am sure you also make a lot of difference in people’s lives by teaching them the universally loved language of music. I am sure you will achieve your goal of improving your English every day. All the best to you, my friend.

How long it will take me to study English to speak like Rebecca? Probably, it will take me forever!
Thank you Rebecca. :)

Friday, August 26th 2016

    The most important goal is to be better than ourselves each day. That is the only person we should compare ourselves to, though we may be inspired by others. I am sure you are improving with each lesson you watch and implement. Please remember to change the order of the words when you ask a question:

    How long will it take me….?

    All the best to you.

    Friday, September 2nd 2016

thanks a lot i am really so happy cuz i can understand you quickly, it was great lesson ! and i got 9_10

    Friday, September 2nd 2016

thanks

Saturday, August 27th 2016

What is defference between how much time or how long time?

Saturday, August 27th 2016

    how much time or how long (without time)

    Thursday, September 1st 2016

      but in first question of the qiuz is used “How much time” instead How long”

      Friday, September 2nd 2016

    “How long time” is incorrect.

    The correct expressions are:
    How long will it take…
    or
    How much time will it take…

    All the best to you!

    Friday, September 2nd 2016

Good class, Thanks a lot

Saturday, August 27th 2016

Thank you Rebecca, I’m learning a lot with your lessons.

Saturday, August 27th 2016

    You are very welcome. So happy to hear that our lessons help you, eramirton. You are right; English opens many doors professionally and personally. It’s great that you have a chance to practice what you learn here in real life with your customers. That’s the best way to consolidate what you learn. My best wishes to you.

    Friday, September 2nd 2016

Although this is not a difficult subject, this lesson is important to reinforce the fundamentals! Thanks Rebecca!

How long does it take to watch this video and to make the quizz? It takes 20 minutes.

How long will it take you to correct yourself, if you have a misunderstanding about this subject and don’t pay attention to this lesson? It will take me forever. :)

Saturday, August 27th 2016

    Haha! Thanks for your enthusiasm and support. You are right, each lesson corrects a particular aspect of speaking and writing English. Every small correction then makes a big difference in your English fluency. I wish you all the best, my friend.

    Friday, September 2nd 2016

Monday, August 29th 2016

    I love your spirit. That’s the way! Mistakes are like doors that open the path to greater understanding. Try watching the lesson again after a few days and then do the quiz again, or try writing some of your own sentences and questions, using the expressions. Most important is that you have the right attitude and psychology for success. My best wishes to you, Emadomda.

    Friday, September 2nd 2016

I enjoy learning English.Thank you

Tuesday, August 30th 2016

Tuesday, August 30th 2016

hello dear rebecca

i cant speak english correct

Tuesday, August 30th 2016

    I understand your situation and also your desire to improve. We have hundreds of lessons at different levels that can help you upgrade your English, step by step. I suggest you watch lessons regularly, do the quizzes, and write your own sample sentences. It is important for you to practice producing the language yourself, as well as understanding the language. I wish you all the best, rita1351.

    Friday, September 2nd 2016

Thank you.

Tuesday, August 30th 2016

Thanks aunty rebecca, I greet you! Nice lesson. How to write a duty report, if something happening in our office or station?

Tuesday, August 30th 2016

    To write a report, you need to use all the English you know to communicate what you need to say in correctly constructed sentences. Many of the grammar and writing lessons on engvid will help you to do this more effectively. You need to look at sample duty reports at work to understand what kind of information you are expected to include there. I wish you all the best, Musa.

    Friday, September 2nd 2016

I am facing problem with prepositions… especially words followed by prepositions..so will you help me to sort it out

Thursday, September 1st 2016

Thanks a lot!

Thursday, September 1st 2016

Thank you so much!

Friday, September 2nd 2016

Thanks to all of you for your comments and feedback. Please try to construct your own sentences and questions with the expressions learned here. Then, it will make more sense and become a part of your everyday life. For example, you could write about your daily life:

It takes me 30 minutes to get to work.
or
Yesterday, it took me one hour to do my homework.
or
It will take me about 10 minutes to wash the dishes.

Make motes from the lessons you watch and put them up on your fridge so you see them often, and until it becomes natural for you to use the expressions correctly and easily. I wish each of you the very best and admire your determination to improve your English. Am honored to help you reach your communication goals.

Friday, September 2nd 2016

Make notes, not motes!

Friday, September 2nd 2016

Dear Rebecca, I am very grateful for your help to improve my english skills. Your lesson is quite easy to understand for me. I will train these sentences in my work :). Thank you so much!

Friday, September 2nd 2016
