      dear teacher pleas talk about arrive in, arrive to and arrive at. what is different betwen them?

      Wednesday, October 17th 2012

        we use the prepositions AT or IN after the verb ARRIVE . Sompeople tend to confuse the use of preposition with the verb ARRIVE in English and the verb arriver in French . It’s a matter of language interference

Tuesday, April 24th 2012

thank you madame ronnie

Tuesday, April 24th 2012

Good lesson ever i had

Tuesday, April 24th 2012

Thanks Ronnie. After I had woken up today, I learned how to use Simple Past and Past Perfect to talk about my daily routine.

Tuesday, April 24th 2012

Hi, Ronnie! Thank you for the lesson.
I’ve read in Murphy’s Advanced Grammar that we may use Past Simple in both parts of a sentence even if it’s clear that those actions were completed at a different time. So, is “After I woke up, I had my breakfast” correct? Or did I misunderstand the rule?

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

    You are correct! You can use just past tense.

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

      Thanks mom im lot imprtant in future you are lessons

      Friday, July 27th 2012

      Then why we need the past perfect. If we can use just past simple, the past perfect is redundand.

      Thursday, October 3rd 2013

Hii Ronnie,
I am happy today as I can realize my vocab is expanding gradually as well as things are going in my favour after watching the video lessons made by the Engvid team for a long time.As, you asked all the learners to write down a few sentences using both the simple past and past perfect tense put together in a sentence, I have penned down some of them..
It is about the activities I did today.Today, I woke up at the crack of dawn as I had been late to school yesterday.I had set the alarm which rang exactly at half past six.I had brushed and washed my face before I had some tea with snacks.Next,I emerged into my balcony and sat on an old ,wooden chair holding the newspaper with both of my hand . I was reading the newspaper when one of my pals made a call to my cellphone.He informed me that we did not have classes at school today.Then, I had got into bathroom to have a bath before I offered my prayers to lord Jesus Christ.Later, I studied till 11 a.m. before going to hang out with my pals at our local club.Our eyes were drooling some beautiful faces passing by the club.(Extremely Sorry for this sentence).I had stayed till mid day before I got back home at 2:00 p.m.I ate lunch and entered to my bedroom to rest for a while as I felt tired.After taking a rest for two hours, I got up at twenty minutes past five.Next, I sat in front of the television sat to watch my favourite program which continued for an hour. After that, my sweet youngest sister snatched the remote-control from me which ended up in a short fight.Finally,I made her laugh and happy by telling an interesting anecdote.Then, our parents returned from their work.My father bought some awesome new dresses for us. We took our individual dresses and went into our room to wear those.My mother gave me complement when she had a look at my outfit.She told me that I looked too handsome.Things went on in this way for some time .Around 9:30 p.m., we had come to the dinning table to have the last meal of the day before going to bed.
I would like you to go through the above content and request you to check my sentences please mam.I have used the simple past tense with perfect tense in some of the sentences as well as with progressive tense in some others sentences.
The most interestingly,I have learnt some other usage of some nouns particularly as verbs.
e.g. captain(nouns): I am a captain of our school soccer team.
captain(verb):When my elder brother was in school, he would captain the school’s basket ball team.
Mam please please read my comment and also comment on it…

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

    you must be kidding. right. u should be another teacher, right away.

    Wednesday, April 25th 2012

      ah what is this

      Sunday, May 27th 2012

    Wow!

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

    hi every one how are u all

    Sunday, May 20th 2012

hi, madam ronnie,thank you very much,this lesson is great.

Could i ask you some questions?
1.Can I use only one action in past perfect?
example:I had given the book to her.i don’t want to talk about the action i did after i had given the book.Can i?

2.a)We had done our chores.
b)We have done our chores.
What are the different between these two sentences?These two sentences are refer to the same meaning.

3.If I miss someone at the present time,should I say I’m missing you??Is it correct?

Thanks in advance:)

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

    I’m waiting for your answer,hope you will reply,thanks,Ronnie.

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

    1. Yes only one action in the past perfect.
    2. a= present perfect. Talks about life experience. b= past perfect, used with 2 actions. Ex… We had done our chores, then we had a break!
    3. Grammatically, no it is not correct…but we say this in everyday situations!

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

      so what should i say if i missing someone….
      in no. 3..?

      Sunday, March 3rd 2013

Hi Ronnie, I just wanted to know. what does “tight feasted” mean. Please explain. I am waiting….

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

    Sounds like you misheard “tight-fisted”, which means stingy/miserly — someone who never wants to spend any money.

    Wednesday, April 25th 2012

I have been recently known about this English lesson .Could you please give me suggestion from where I can start? I would like to learn some phrasal verb which are most common.

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

Hi Ronnie you’re fantastic, thanks a lot for this great lesson and nice time with you.

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

hi teacher ronnie my best for you, so i have a confuse, when can i use upto, to and till, to talk about limit?

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

    When you’re talking about time, up to is followed by a general term that covers a span of time. Until is followed by a specific point in time.
    Examples:
    I can wait up to three days for your answer (but I can’t wait any longer).
    I can wait until 5:00 for your answer (but I can’t wait any longer).

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

      thank you teacher

      Sunday, July 29th 2012

Thursday, April 26th 2012

hi teacher, it’s the fist time i comment in engvip. i’m going to have toeic test next week, so i want to ask you some questen:
1: what’s diffirent bewteen although, despite , even.
2: how to use v_ed and v_ing. for example : bored and boring..
thank a lot.hope you respond as soon as.

Thursday, April 26th 2012

    Adj +ed is how you feel/your emotions. I am bored.
    adj+ing is used to describe a thing. Grammar is boring.
    Look at an online dictionary for although, despite and even.

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

      thank you very much

      Friday, April 27th 2012

      …..in the shopping and business districts, Grand Hotel offers easy access to the city’s slights
      (a) situation
      (b) to situare
      (C) situated
      (d) situating

      best answer is?

      Friday, April 27th 2012

        You tell me what you think.

        Monday, April 30th 2012

          the answer is situated(according with answer key in the TARGET TOEIC). but as you said,adj+ing is used to describe a thing. i think situating is correct.
          it’s so complex.

          Tuesday, May 1st 2012

Hi Ronnie,
You are fantastic, funny and efficient. I like a lot your class because you teach in a simple manner that I can understand everything.

Thursday, April 26th 2012

Where could I get list of past participles, which are daily used for business Nd stories, cheers

Thursday, April 26th 2012

    Search the internet for “past participles”.

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

Hi Ronnie
Is it possible to have another lesson for “had” such as “I had someone to paint my house?”

Thursday, April 26th 2012

maam you really deserved “Thank you”.i can’t express in words how much i’m thankful to you.U r simply great.i watched other videos too but i didn’t get it.if u teach same topic, it will set in mind.plz teach once again about the tenses and their differences and uses like you did in this video.

Thursday, April 26th 2012

Hello, teacher
May i ask plz!
What is the meaning of “as one parent to another”
Thank you teacher!

Thursday, April 26th 2012

    It means that the 2 people talking are both parents!!

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

Ronnie, can I use the present perfect instead of the past perfect?
After I have woken up I ate breakfast
Is it incorrect?

Thursday, April 26th 2012

    NO!!!! It is incorrect.

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

5/5 … it’s perfect done. i really appreciate your patience and your teach skills. After I had watched your Vid, I learnt differences betwen Past Simple and Past perfect Tenses in English.Thanks again.

Thursday, April 26th 2012

hey ..hello ronnie, how are you? … i have a question if you want tell me how could i say to describe more than two consecutive action. thanks so much

Thursday, April 26th 2012

    You would put the first action in past perfect, then all the others in simple past!
    Ex.. After I had eaten dinner, I went to the bar, had a beer, talked to my friend and then I went home!!

    Thursday, April 26th 2012

Do you think spelling and pronunciation are difficult in English?? And Why

Friday, April 27th 2012

    Yes, because there are so many rules and so many exceptions to the rules!

hi roni

Thursday, May 3rd 2012

Hiii Ronnie,
I would like to congratulate you for continuing this noble work.A lot of English learner across the globe are being helped by watching these video lesson.Being informative as well as practical,these lessons are really playing a great role in improving language skills of the learners who are truly dedicated to master this languge.I also have been continuing my learning which I started six months back from now.I request you to analyze some sentences which I have written below.
1.A mining company named Galaxy Mining Company Ltd. has mines located at various place in India.
My Explanation:Here “named” is an adjective . The verb form is “to name”
(e.x.My parents named me Sona Sharma.).
If I am correct, then we might refer to that organization by saying it is named Galaxy….Another word which is also to be noted is “located”. It must be an adjective too.
I request you to help me find my mistakes and assist me to improve my English.

Friday, May 4th 2012

    NO mistakes!!!! Your sentences are perfect!~!!!!!!!

Saturday, May 5th 2012

I found a video where you talk about job interview questions… and It was very helpful. However I am not sure if the job will be mine :P because the interviewer will be an Hindu person, so, the pronunciation is a little difficult to understand for me…

Saturday, May 5th 2012

    If you do not understand just ask the person to repeat the question!

    Sunday, May 6th 2012

hey Ronie! I just registered because of I had watched your video in one social network. I’ve fallen in love with your videos, they are so understandable and interesting! Thank you! That you are doing to us is very important. You are amazing ;)

Tuesday, May 8th 2012

HI!! I love you Roonie and your style too…. thanks for your time. You make my day every day…!!!!
I’m in college, to become an english teacher…so I had a problem getting the difference between HAVE TO and MUST. I gave an example in class and my teacher told me I was wrong… for me HAVE TO is stronger than must,’cause there’s no choice. PLEASE HELP!!!

Wednesday, May 9th 2012

    Must is just more formal than have to.
    Ex.. I have to go now… I must go now. They are basically the same strength but must is just what older people say!

Wednesday, June 6th 2012

hey teacher how are you would u pls tel me is thz sentence right or not?
“i had gone to the market,and i bought fruits” if its wronge so pls correct it!

Wednesday, June 6th 2012

hello ronnie how are you? would u pls tel me is thz sentence wright or not in thz sentence i used simple past nd past perfect “i had gone to the market,and i bought fruits” first action is the past perfect and 2nd is the past simple so pls correct the sentence if its wronge. i’ll wait for ur ans…

Wednesday, June 6th 2012

    Your sentence is very good!!!!!
    However, you have to use a capital “I” not a small (i). I had gone……I bought fruit!
    And don’t use “s” with fruit – it is uncountable!
    Great work!

    Wednesday, June 6th 2012

Hiiii thanks for your class Ronnie and for the test too, i humbly say that i scored 5 out of 5 again, i like this page very much, byeeee

Thursday, June 7th 2012

Hi Ronnie, I have the sentence here ‘ Some food travels thousands of miles to reach consumers’ Can you explain why travels and thousands can both have ‘s’. And in what condition i can use this kind of grammer. Thank you

Friday, June 8th 2012

    Food is uncountable so we have to use “s” on the base verbs. With he/she/it we ALWAYS need to add an “s” to the base verb in the present tense!

    Tuesday, June 12th 2012

Thank you very much mrs Ronnie for your greatest lessons …

Monday, June 11th 2012

Wednesday, June 20th 2012

good morning there,
I need help again from you Ronnie as a native speaker and expert teachers of English to tell me which of the following tenses: past simple or present perfect is correct or should be used in the last statement with the verb (create): Here is the context:
When the internet appeared, the national newspapers began to claim that they would lose all their readers. Although, most of them who didn ´t use to love the internet (created) an online version of their paper.
OR
When internet …………….. . Although …………………. (have created) an online version of their paper.

Thursday, June 21st 2012

Hello, Ronnie! Thank you very much for your very interesting and practical lessons.
I have watched the video about use of Past Simple and Past Perfect. And my question is:
although we usually use Past Perfect in the sentence starting with ‘after’ to show that one action had happened before another action in the past. At the same time grammar books warn that Past Simple can often be used in both parts to show that one action happened after another one. After I took a bath, I watched TV. First I took a bath and then watched TV. Do I think properlz or Am I confused? Thank you for your answer in advance!

Thursday, June 21st 2012

in this sentence {I have bought a new car}can I say {I bought a new car}Are they same ??if not why?? please answer me

all the best wishes teacher ronni

Saturday, September 22nd 2012

    We use present perfect to talk about a cool/exciting past event, with no time marker. Ex..I have bought a car!!
    We use simple past to talk about daily/boring/routine things, with a time marker.
    Ex. Today, I had a shower. In the afternoon, I ate lunch.

    Tuesday, September 25th 2012

      thank u so much..I get it now :)

Thursday, October 4th 2012

thanks a lot.

Thursday, October 4th 2012

Ronnie, why most of your grammar explanations start with this bad attitude towards it? you reinforce the idea that grammar is boring and difficult, although your explanations are very good. Think about it and led me know what you think @welcome2english

Friday, October 5th 2012

Hi!! Ronnie, you know,after I had knew you,
I made a lots of mistakes, but now I rectified them all. what do you think about it?

Tuesday, October 9th 2012

Hello Ronnie! Thanks for your double rainbow lessons!
I was wondering if you could help me with the next sentence:
While we were sailing on the boat, some back-packers taught (were teaching) us Spanish.

So the question is – should we use Past Simple or Past Progressive. If both version are acceptable which one is more appropriate for this situation and why? Thanks in advance.

Thursday, October 11th 2012

thank you so much you have a good way to explain you make me understand easy

Thursday, October 11th 2012

Excellent Ronnie, your style of presentation makes it simple and attractive.

Friday, October 12th 2012

hi ronni thank u so much .u great teacher.
I want to ask u what is difference between present perfect and simple past?? cause I am confused..
in this sentence {I have bought a new car}can I say {I bought a new car}Are they same ??if not why?? please answer me

Saturday, October 13th 2012

    Present perfect we use for special events in the past.
    Simple past we use for routine (boring events).
    If you just got a new car I would say I have bought a new car…because it is a special event!

    Thursday, October 18th 2012

Hi Ronnie. I loved your lessons very much!! ♡

Hi Ronnie,
Can you please give any idea about email writing?
Basically, I always use present perfect for report emails to my manager.
For example:I have completed xyz part.
Is it right that I’m using?
Can you please take one lesson on ‘status report email to manager’ which will cover tenses.

Thanks in Advance!

Thank you, Ronnie! But I have a question: if we are talking about past actions which happened one after the other, can we use just Past Simple? For example: I woke up, took a shower and then I had my breakfast. Is it right?

Monday, November 26th 2012

tahhnks roniiie

Tuesday, November 27th 2012

hi ronnie….thank u your videos r really usefull for me….could u explain me please is it (present perfect ) or (present perfect continous tense?… ( i have been married for 20 years..???.. iam confiused with this sentences

thanks

Friday, November 30th 2012

    Present perfect continuous we usually use with the verbs teaching/learning/studying/living/working, and with a time marker. I have been living in Canada for 4 years. It means we are still doing the action now.

Hi. Just a question!

Can I say: “Before I watched a movie last night, I had taken a shower”?

Thanks

Thursday, April 18th 2013

    “Took a shower” might sound better.

    Friday, April 19th 2013

Ronnie,
You are very funny doing the class…Thank you very much !

Friday, April 19th 2013

Ronnie, the moderator told me to use “took a shower” but it isn`t past perfect. In all exemples, you use first the past perfect and after the simple past, beginning the sentence with “after”. I changed the position and started the sentence with “before”. Is it correct? Thanks!

Friday, April 19th 2013

Monday, April 29th 2013

i have alot of problem in tenses :( please try to make some videos about all the tenses from the first up to last thnks miss ronnie

Tuesday, April 30th 2013

Hi Ronnie!
First of all I’d like to say, that you are my favourite teacher. I’ve watched already all of your lessons, some of them more than once! I like your sense of humour and intelligence.
I am 50 years old, Polish women, I moved six months ago to UK. I learnt English for many years in Poland at high school and at university, but I was taught by polish teachers, from old fashioned text books. So, now, when I’ve faced the live language I have some problems. First of all, with understanding spoken language, especially here, in the region of Liverpool, where I live. I work in a factory, where workers don’t use proper English. It’s so hard to find anybody for conversation. And until I improve my English, I will not find better job (I’m a PhD in Medical Biology). I attend two English courses and spend a lot of time watching BBC, EngVid, repeating vocabulary, etc. But I still have feeling it’s not enough…

I’d like to ask you for help.
I have problems with using prepositions. I never know which one I should use before a noun – on, for or to…Could you, please, make a lesson about prepositions? Are there any rules? Or I have to learn them by heart?
And second question: I found a sentence: “I didn’t know whose bags they were.” The construction is surprising for me. I would say: “I didn’t know whose these bags were.” Which one is correct?
I will be grateful for your answer,
best regards,
Kasia

Sunday, May 5th 2013

Hi Ronnie,

I wanna ask, is it true? ” the nature has started damaging”

Thursday, August 22nd 2013

I could understand easily after I had watched a lesson about ‘Present Perfect or Past perfect?’, I watched a this lesson.
(Is it right? hahaha It’s interesting to make a sentence by your lecture. but I’m still confused about how to use ‘a’ or ‘the’ in the
sentence :) a lesson? the lesson?? )
Anyway, I’m going to study hard with your lovely lecture!!!!
Thank you.

Friday, August 23rd 2013

Hi Ronnie,
after I had watched this video, I was sure, that I got it well.
”I got 5 correct out of 5”
Thanks!

Sunday, August 25th 2013

Dear Ronnie, nice lessons you have!
I have one question. Grammar rules says, that one never has to use present perfect and present past together. But I have seen such sentences. Is it possible to use above mentioned two tenses together and if yes, are there any rules for it? Finally I would like to ask more specific question which actually lead me to wonder about present past and perfect together. Is it possible to write: “Secretariat informs delegations that the meeting that had provisionally been planned for 16 September has been cancelled.” ?
Thank you for your answer in advance!
Karel

Wednesday, September 4th 2013

Thursday, January 30th 2014

Hello.
I’m sorry to bother you, but I’ve an issue with grammar…

I normally help kids in troubles with English at school, and in this case, I’m in troubles!

They’re studying the perfect tenses, and their teacher explained them the future tense, which is easy according to the formula:

subject + will + have + pp

But when they arrived to this exercise:

“By the time you come back, she will have been gone a long time.”

All of them wrote “she will have gone a long time”… and the teacher just add the gone in the middle of those words. I tried so hard to think about how to explain them that, but I totally couldn’t.

So, my question is: why do you have to use “BEEN and GONE” in the same sentence? I barely remember something related with “to be gone” but I don’t know how to get the main idea, to explain it to these kids…

I hope you could help me as well.

Thank you!

Wednesday, February 5th 2014

thanks ronnie.

Sunday, March 23rd 2014

techer what is the defferece between past simple and past perfect thanks

Thursday, March 27th 2014

Thank you so much ;), although I reckon it’s easy to choose Past Simple or Past Perfect. You just have to think which activity happened before or after. The problem is… when you have to use other tenses like, for example, Present Perfect Continuous or Past Perfect Continuous. Sometimes I have problems with using Present Perfect or Past Simple as well ;(.

Saturday, April 12th 2014

Your teaching method very gooooood

thank you so much

Wednesday, April 23rd 2014

Thanks Ronnie,you are my best teacher but can you say to me what’s the difference between the past simple & the present simple? :)i wish you could answer me and i am saying it again……thanks for you hard work
