Thanx a lot, its really v gd lessen

Friday, June 1st 2012

I had understood everything, thank u Rebecca 4 the free lesson. you are a great teacher. beside you have a wonderful smile.

Friday, June 1st 2012

    ‘I had understood everything’, is NOT past perfect, Efrain. Rebecca said it is simple but it is extremely difficult. If it were easy, you would not have written what you wrote. It is a very useful device but most grammar teachers cannot make it make sense. But keep trying, Efrain, you’ll get there.

    Sunday, June 3rd 2012

      ‘I had understood everything’actually is a past perfect but Efrain didn’t use it properly.

      Sunday, June 3rd 2012

        thank you guys to let me know. so I have understood everything is right? so long n’ good bye.

        Sunday, June 10th 2012

    Sorry Efrain maybe You have understood everything and not you had……. bye.

    Sunday, June 3rd 2012

thanks Rebecca

Friday, June 1st 2012

Thank you Rebecca! As always your lessons are very clear and useful.

Friday, June 1st 2012

Thanks a lot madam,before this lesson i couldn’t distinguish between present perfect and pas perfect, i was often use past simple to show past but after this lesson all the confusion has over, Engvid doing a very well job for those who feels shy to go language center because they think people will laugh on them, some of them due to hesitation & mostly doesn’t afford their fees. so that’s a awesome work… I’m thankful to the owner or the teachers indeed, Engvid became my habit if i don’t watch videos i can’t feel better….
Rebecca i have just a slightly confusion between present or past perfect so would you please explain it briefly to make sure about these tenses that I’m using correct or not,
and check is i wrote correct what are my mistakes I’ll be happy if you find my mistakes because in future i want to become a english grammer teacher so you know teacher should have a complete specialization in his field I’ll be waiting for your answer

    Friday, June 1st 2012

Hi, Rebecca. Let me tell you that you are the best teacher at engvid.com or, at least, you are the one that explains better. I’m not telling you that the other teachers are not good teachers – in fact, all they are great teachers, but you are excellent. It’s impossible for us not to understand the subject when you explain it. You are the best. Thank you so much.

Friday, June 1st 2012

Your teaching style is very understandable, Rebecca. Can you increase your teaching on advance lessons?
Thanks.

Really, Thank you Rebecca. I got the point now. keep it up!

Friday, June 1st 2012

Teacher Rebecca

I would like you to take a doubt:
Can I use the present perfect with the Past Perfect by writing or saying senteces like this:
“I had done a lot of homework when my sister has arrived today”?
Greeting from brazil and all the best.

Friday, June 1st 2012

    no you couldn’t use past perfect with present perfect that setance is wrong you made that ok bye.

    Monday, June 11th 2012

I have a bachelors degree in computer and info. system engineering. Now, I want to live in Germany, so I applied for a Phd in German universities. Taha, my cousin had lived in Germany, so I called him to find out more about the culture and lifestyle there.

Correct me, if there is any mistake in the above sequence of sentences.

Sunday, June 17th 2012

Hi Rebbecca , you are a excellent teacher Im very happy learning with you , Im writing from Chile.I love this channel in youtube. and all the teachers too.

Sunday, June 17th 2012

Hi Rebecca, Thanks for your work on this and other lessons!
Can I ask for you?
Can you please create a lesson or lessons where to explain where we use first, second and third form of verb (in what cases, with examples (for example – first form of verb we use in Present [I go to home...] or third form of verb we use in Present Perfect [...], Pasive Voice [....], etc ….)).
This lesson would add an understanding of what is the three forms of the verb and where each we can use.
I think this will very helpful for people which learn English and learn that in English there are 3 form of verb – people at a go would understand where this we can use and where this is used.

Monday, June 18th 2012

Thank you so much Rebeca

Monday, June 18th 2012

Thank so much and you can help us about gramma

Monday, June 18th 2012

Thank you very much Madam !

I am just confused between the present perfect and the past perfect. To my knowledge, the present perfect is used also to express an action that is performed before another one in the past. Thus, How can i guess which tense must be used in such situations.

Thank you in advance !

Fabulous, thank you

Sunday, October 28th 2012

thanks rebecca. you made it so loud and clear by those simple lecture and explanation on when and how we should this past participle form of the verb. The word HAD plus the PAST PARTICIPLE OF THE VERB gave all the clarity.

Tuesday, October 30th 2012

Hi Bek.
I got confused with “complete” and “had completed”.In Q3 and Q5 Its both “complete” form is the correct answer.But,isn’t it the participle form there meant to be “had + Participle ” form.
Thanks.
Your early response is much appreciated.
Regards,
BillB.

Rebecca, thank you very much for your lesson.

Friday, May 17th 2013

Can we say “I hadn’t made a lot of money yet ?” I thought yet is used only with present perfect.

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Rebecca, Talking about past tense, I have a question.
I always mistake about these phrases below. Which phrase is correct?

“I didn´t talk” or “I didn´t talked”

Thanks

Thursday, May 30th 2013

    Hi Andre. The correct sentence is “I didn’t talk”.

    Friday, August 2nd 2013

    Andre, o verbo auxiliar “do” fica com a forma no passado e o verbo principal fica no infinitivo.Portanto a resposta certa é:
    I didn’t talk

    Thursday, December 5th 2013

Thanks Rebecca for your help!
Hugs from Brazil!

Tuesday, June 25th 2013

Excellent lesson! Thank you.

Sunday, September 29th 2013

Even though I got 100 for the test, but I am still a bit confused. Mrs Rebecca (or anyone), so we have the past tense first then the past perfect. Can we only use the perfect tense in one sentence without the past tense in the beginning?
please explain it. Thanks in advance. :)

Hi Rebecca. By the time I watched this video, I had studied about this past perfect. But it was not informative. Now I understood it clearly.

    Please help me in evaluation.
