      Hi Mrs Rebecca, thank you so much for your interesting video, i have one question, you said : When did you lose your job? (Past simple) right? so can’t we say as well: When have you lost your job?(presnet perfect)

      Tuesday, February 26th 2013

        i think, you could say : how long have you been out of work.

        Monday, May 27th 2013

Wednesday, August 15th 2012

When did she have baby ?when did you complete your phd?the answer should be pass simple tense instead of present simple or present perfect tense,please correct me if I am wrong.

Wednesday, August 15th 2012

    Great lesson. I also noticed these mistakes in the quiz. The answers should have been :past tense instead of present tense. But this quiz only proves that nobody is perfect, doesn’t it

    Wednesday, August 15th 2012

Hi Rebecca, are you sure that your the test is correct?
I can’t understand

If I right understand it is Past Simple.
Why the answer contain only Present tense.

Thursday, August 16th 2012

Nella seconda, terza e quarta risposta correggere Present simple con Past simple.

Thursday, August 16th 2012

There are two mistakes at the Q2 and Q3 in the Quiz:

2. How long have you been in England?

Present Simple -> This one =]
Present Perfect

3. When did she have the baby?

Present Simple -> This one =]
Present Perfect

Hope you will fix it!

BTW this lesson is really great! :D

Thursday, August 16th 2012

    You’re right! Sorry for the error! We’ve now fixed the quiz.

hi
Rebecca i got 4/10 in quiz but still i have to improve my grammer and way of talking can help me for that please.and i am prepairg for toefl &many people are saying u have to improve your grammer.

Thursday, August 16th 2012

    Yes, although grammar is no longer tested directly on the TOEFL IBT, it is tested indirectly in the speaking and writing parts of the test. So make sure you review all the necessary grammar. Many of the engvid lessons should help you. All the best to you.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

    TOEFL.. is the hardest thing in our planet, its even more harder than understanding women. i’ll pray for you.

    Monday, May 27th 2013

GREAT AND VERY IMPORTANT LESSON ABOUT PAST SIMPLE AND PRESENT PERFECT THANK YOU MISS REBECA

Thursday, August 16th 2012

Thank you for correction for the answer of question3 and 4.We sometimes an error.

Thursday, August 16th 2012

I have a question. If I want to know where my friend has gone for 2 year and now he comes back. which sentences should I ask? Where did you go? or.. Where have you gone?

Thursday, August 16th 2012

    you can say. where have you been so long.
    this is just i am trying if it is wrong please correct it i am also learner.

    Tuesday, August 21st 2012

      thanks a lot

      Monday, August 27th 2012

    Yes, padmarai is right. The best question would probably be “Where have you been?” or some variation of that, such as “Where have you been all this time?” or “Where have you been for the past 2 years?”.

    You could not say “Where have you gone?” because your friend has already come back.

    I hope this helps you. All the best with your English and thanks to padmarai for offering to help.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

thanks u so much!

Friday, August 17th 2012

You are the best! Thank you!

Friday, August 17th 2012

Awesome lesson. your teaching is perfect Rebeka. Understood simply and exactly. Thank you a lot.

    Thank you kindly. All the best to you.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

Hi teachers i am Narjice from Morocco,thank you a lot for this website and for all lessons, i write this letter because i have a confusing between start and begin what is the diffrece please?

Friday, August 17th 2012

    There is almost no difference between these two words so feel free to use whichever one you like without worrying too much.

    The word “begin” is perhaps a little more formal than the word “start”. That’s all.

    My best wishes to you.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

Thank you very much Rebecca. That’s was a new good lesson. I wish all the best for you! See you soon!

Friday, August 17th 2012

Thank you for lesson. :)

A bit of practice:

‘When did she have a baby?’

I suppose we can tell also: ‘When did she get a baby?’

‘She got the baby 3 months ago.’

Or, I suppose, we could tell:

‘It’s 3 moths now she has become mother.’

Friday, August 17th 2012

    Actually, it would be incorrect to use the expression, “get a baby” if the woman gave birth to the child herself. In this normal context, it is correct to say she had a baby.
    For example,
    She had a baby boy three months ago.

    The only exception I can think of is if the child had been adopted; then you could say “She got the baby three months ago.” or “She succeeded in getting the baby three months ago.” or something similar.

    Al the best with your English, Sasha.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

Rebeca,
How long have you been teaching english?
It looks like you have a very long experience.

Friday, August 17th 2012

i think this video was interesting

Friday, August 17th 2012

i think this video was useful to understand the quiz. i’m happy 10/10 yeahhh!

Friday, August 17th 2012

This is a great style of presenting two confusing tenses upfront. this is really a nice way of learning tense when keep up front and actually comparing when to use when.

I request you to please provide understand about other tenses as well in same manner.

I am learning English but I really get confused when you need to switch from one tense to another during conversation.
If you provide such online training i am ready to pay as well. Please let me know

Friday, August 17th 2012

    I do not teach online at this time. Thank you for your interest and feedback and will pass your message on to the other teachers. My best wishes to you, Davinder.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

can u give me reply for that what i message u for u pleaseee Rebecca.i message u about my improvement of grammer

Friday, August 17th 2012

    Not sure what your message was. My best to you, in any case, Sunanda.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

thank alot for lesson.
can you tell that uses in the sentence?

Saturday, August 18th 2012

the lessons ae very interesting, but i got a doubt….
after “been” we supouse “to” put to and
you put “in”
how long have you been in toronto?
it must be how long have you been to toronto, or i’m wrong?
Reveca please clear my doubts
greets

Saturday, August 18th 2012

    I think you might be confusing two different questions:

    How long have you been in Toronto?

    Here, we are asking someone how long they have lived in Toronto, or how much time they have spent there.

    You could also ask,

    Have you ever been to Toronto?

    This time the preposition changes, as you can see, and this is used to ask if the person has ever visited Toronto.

    Prepositions need a lot of review and practice, so it’s good you asked. My best wishes to you, Julio.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

hahahaha! thanks you so much Teacher Revecca thanks for the knowledge and great idea…10/10 yeeeheeee…GBU….

Saturday, August 18th 2012

Thanks!

Sunday, August 19th 2012

thanks a lot guys you really helps me to understand english rules because you make it in a easier way.

Sunday, August 19th 2012

Tnx a million Rebecca. I’m always looking for this kind of subject. :)

Monday, August 20th 2012

Hi, very interesting, very helpful.
thanks a lot.

Monday, August 20th 2012

Hi, I have a question if you can help me!
when you say in example “how long have you been employed” is the guy still working in present time or not?
thank you.

Monday, August 20th 2012

    Yes, good question. I know it sounds like this should be in the past, but in fact we can ask this question when the person is still working, in the present.

    In fact, you could say,

    Have long have you worked here? (Present Perfect)
    or
    How long have you been working here? (Present Perfect Continuous)

    All the best to you.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

Hi Rebeca, I really like your lesson about past tense and present perfect. Verry interesting lesson. However,some of your examples make me confuse because some word end of -ed and some is not using -ed, for example When did you get married, when did you graduate, when did you get engaged, when did you get the job?
Appreciate very much if you could explain again about this matter mentioned above.

Thanks.
Cecilia.

Monday, August 20th 2012

    Some verbs are used on their own such as to graduate, so in the past tense we say:

    He graduated. (positive sentence)
    He didn't graduate. (negative sentence)
    Did he graduate? (question)

    Yet, there are other expressions (which require a helper verb) that must be used as a whole, such as:

    to get married
    to get engaged
    to be worried

    The word that changes here is the verb get or the verb to be and not the word married or engaged or worried.

    He gets married every 10 years! (present simple)
    He is getting married. (present continuous)
    He got married last month. (past simple)

    You see that the word married did not change in the above examples. Hope this helps. My best wishes to you, Cecilia.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

      you explain clearly, so everyone can understand what you say and what you mean .

      Saturday, February 22nd 2014

thanks Rebecca I scored it 10/10. nice video and you’re the wonderful teacher in the world .Although the quiz was easy but OOKKEE:)

Monday, August 20th 2012

Hello Rebecca, since you are my favorite teacher on Engvid, I have a question for you. I have difficulties with prefixes and suffixes, and noticed that there is no a video about it. Could you do one? Thanks in advance

Monday, August 20th 2012

I’m enjoying

Tuesday, August 21st 2012

I love everything you do…..

Tuesday, August 21st 2012

Wednesday, August 22nd 2012

I’m scored 10 out of ten again….frm Indonesia

Wednesday, August 22nd 2012

very nice presentation

Wednesday, August 22nd 2012

Hi, Rebecca
My name is Lillian and I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy your lesson and appreciated. I have a question that I hope you would answer. Sometimes, large corporations-such as Mcdonald and Starbucks, lend their name to a small business owner and collect license fee? or whatever you call,How do you call that type of business? The business that is not directly managed by the corporation but steet using the name. Thank you for your time and concideration.

Wednesday, August 22nd 2012

    I am not sure exactly what you are referring to, but maybe the word you are looking for is “to franchise”. Check in the dictionary whether that is what you had in mind. Another related word is “to sponsor”, but I think you are looking for the first word. My best wishes to you.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

Ms. Rebecca, if I said “Since when are you married?”, would it be wrong?

Wednesday, August 22nd 2012

    Fernando, it would be better to say:

    How long have you been married?
    or
    When did you get married?
    or
    How long ago did you get married?

    Hope this helps! My best wishes to you.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

Hello Rebecca, could you explain the difference between HAVE YOU GOT, HAVE YOU and DO YOU HAVE, please?

Thursday, August 23rd 2012

    In North America, we use “do you have” rather than “have you”, which is more British English. We do use “have you got”, but usually in more casual conversations.

    So if you want to use an expression that is clear and familiar all over the world, I would choose “do you have”. All the best to you, Ellie.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

Fantastic madam!

Monday, August 27th 2012

    You are not alone in struggling with these tenses, so don’t feel bad. Engvid has many video lessons on tenses which could help you, and you should also work through a very good grammar book till you understand when and how to use each tense. My best wishes to you.

    Thursday, August 30th 2012

Thursday, September 6th 2012

Thanks Rebecca. I understand a now. Thank you very much again from NZ!

Thursday, September 6th 2012

Hello Rebecca! Great lesson, but could you explain the difference between Present Perfect and Present Perfect continuous… thanks!

Thursday, September 6th 2012

    hello Elimy
    Present Perfect:i have been in France several times.(that means you were in France for few times but now you are in your state and it exists the probability to visit it again in the future)
    Present Perfect Continuous.I have been living in Russia since i ever remember(that means you live in Russia since you were borned you havent left it yet)
    Present Perfect Continuous is used with since and for.try to remember these
    For example.i have been learning english for 10 years.That means you started the action in the past it still continue and it will continue

    Present Perfect is used often with these prepositions
    several times-i have been in Japan several times
    already-i have already read the book
    yet-i havent eaten yet
    just-i have just come home

    anyway dont worry and dont focus your mind on a single tense because you will get confused

    when you want to ask people questions using the present perfect you have to think about experiences
    for example:have you ever eaten mushrooms?
    have you every been in Austria?
    have you already eaten?

    i hope i helped you.
    try to ask teachers and they will answere to you
    have a nice day

    Monday, October 1st 2012

      have you ever been in Austria*

      Monday, October 1st 2012

        they will answer*

        Monday, October 1st 2012

          Hello marius1989! Thank you for your time! very good explanation!

          Tuesday, October 2nd 2012

          your welcome Elimy i hope i helped you me too i had really problems with those tenses lol

          Tuesday, October 2nd 2012

          i forgot to say that present perfect continues can be used as a reproach for example teacher says:how many times i have been telling you to study?how many times i have been telling you to be attentive in the classroom?
          or it can be used also to mark the action to show what you did all day for example:i have been studying english all day.that means this is the only thing you did
          i have been shopping all day for example etc
          also to be more accurate when you use the present perfect continuous.the action starts in the past and continuous after now for example
          i have been waiting for him since 9 am that means you started to wait him you are waiting you will wait.so is an action wich wasnt interrupted.
          to learn it better try to use interrogative form of both tenses and then you will understand them better but it will be easy.
          Good luck:)i am sorry i cant explain you better

Hello rebecca mam,
Thank you for this very important video lesson.
It has cleared my doubts regarding usage of present perfect and past simple, but I get confused between the verb pairs like WILL and WOULD,CAN and COULD and their usage.Is the usage of these verbs confined by tenses?, or can they can be used interchangeably? or Has it got something to do with politeness?
Could you please post a lesson on aforementioned things? It will be really helpful for confused students like me.
Regards,
jaykadam9

Thanks Rebecca.I have got 10/10 by quiz. But I do not understand sentences in your video concerning tense: How long have you been engaged,married…ect.(Been) is used for progressive group of tenses, therefore-How long have you been engaging.Can you help me for my confusion?

Thursday, October 11th 2012

Sorry Rebecca.I have understood.Words (married,engaged etc) in the abovementioned sentence are used as adjectve, not a verb.Is it correct?

you are doing well job…I’m struggling in English..specially while speeking..because of lack of verbs and vocabulary..so could you help me to over come with it

Thanks for this vid.
‘When’ could not be used with Present Perfect, could it?

How long have you worked here?
How long have you been working here?
Is there any vid about Future Perfect tense on EngVid?
Thank you for presenting complecated English grammar in such a simple way :)

Friday, January 4th 2013

The way of teaching is very simple.thank you very much Reberca.have a great day.

Monday, January 7th 2013

Thanks for your very clear explanation, but I was not achieved to get the differences between “the last/next week/day/month etc.” and ” last/next week/day etc.”
My question ;Can using of “the ” article determinater of tense? Some books remark that if we use ” the ” tense must be simple past ; if not use article tense perfect .
Thanks in advance for your helps

I have few doubts

” I have done that task” And “I did that task”

2. “what did you said?” , “Did you got that concept ?” are these correct sentences ? Which is the tense of these sentences, when should we you this kinda tense ?

3 some time we use “do” or “did” in sentences
E.g what did you say ? Can we say it as what you said ? If yes then in which case we should use do and did ?

Please reply
