Tuesday, April 2nd 2013

Just a doubt, how about these expressions to offering help too?
1. May I something…
2. Can I something…
Are those formal or informal?
My regards.

Tuesday, April 2nd 2013

    Hi there,
    Generally speaking,May is more 4mal than Can.
    :)

    Friday, April 5th 2013

      Thanks for help and be clear how was used.

      Saturday, April 6th 2013

    Yes, Fatima is right. May is more formal than can. All the best to you both.

    Wednesday, May 15th 2013

thank you

Tuesday, April 2nd 2013

Thanks, a nice lesson.

Tuesday, April 2nd 2013

wow… thank you so much

Tuesday, April 2nd 2013

Hello Rebecca,

When we say Shall I is it kind of like Should I ?

Or it’s just a formal way ?

Wednesday, April 3rd 2013

    Shall I = Do you think it is a good thing for me to do? Do you think it is a good idea for me to do something?

    Shall I open the window? Are you feeling hot?

    Shall I is more of a polite way to ask something, while should I is more about whether it is the right thing to do.

    Do you think I should go to the doctor?
    Should I tell his mother what he did?

    Hope that helps. All the best to you.

    Wednesday, May 15th 2013

By the way, I love this videos, they are very helpful.

Saturday, April 6th 2013

Many thanks for the lesson. Quiz are not working¡

Sunday, April 14th 2013

it was a good lesson & i always appreciate your lessons & i learnt a lot.Mam i have some problem understanding of using “used to “.for example..if the sentence is…”i used to play piano” then i become confused.then i think what does it mean? does it mean…Before i played piano? or I tried to play piano? could you help me please? Mam ..thank you very much for your good lessons & i always greateful to you.

Sunday, April 14th 2013

    When you say that you used to play the piano when you were young, it usually means you did it at that time but you don’t do it any more.

    Another example:

    Sarah used to teach English when she lived in Japan, but now she works in a bank.

    My best wishes to you.

Tuesday, April 16th 2013

Hi Mrs.Rebecca ..
Nice to meet you .
i have already saw your video , it’s help me a lot to improve my knowledge ..
but i just little bit confuse when i will use ” Are you ” or ” do you ”?
can you explain to me ?
thanks a lot for your attention :)

sincerely
Ab.Kevin

Tuesday, April 16th 2013

    This requires a long reply so it’s best to consult a grammar book, but in general “Are you” is part of the verb “to be” and “do you” is used with all other verbs in the present simple tense.

    In English, we have the verb to be, which is used in a certain way, and then we have all the other verbs in English, which can be conjugated in the same way. Please check your grammar book for a full explanation, since this is an important point and you don’t want to confuse the two. My best wishes to you.

    Wednesday, May 15th 2013

would you me to go another lesson?
