      thank you for your lesson .. now i know …

      Thursday, April 24th 2014

Rebecca, what’s the difference between ALTHOUGHT and THOUGH???

Tuesday, February 1st 2011

    No difference. In spoken english they generally say ‘though’, but writting they must use ‘although’.

    Saturday, February 19th 2011

    They are basically the same, but there are some small differences in usage.

    “Although” is used more often at the beginning of a sentence than the word “though”.

    For example:
    Although it was raining, we had the picnic.

    The word “though” can be used at the end of a sentence, but “although” cannot.

    It was raining hard,. We went ahead with the picnic, though.

    In some cases, you can use either word.

    All the best to you, Bruno.

    Monday, March 7th 2011

      Hi Teacher, I would like to know the meaning of ‘thou’ and how to use it. Can you answer me, please?

nice lesson :) thx Rebecca

Thursday, February 3rd 2011

I’ve got a question about the quiz. What’s the difference between these two sentences:
Which airline did you travel ______? Air India? Jet Airways?
Have you ever flown _____________ Singapore Airlines? What do you think of them?

Why the prepositions aren’t the same?
Thanks.

Thursday, February 3rd 2011

    Good question. I’ll wait the answer.

    Saturday, February 19th 2011

    You are very observant. Good for you.

    In both of these cases, we could use the prepositions “by” or “on” .

    It’s just that in the fist question, you did not have the option to use “on”, so the answer was “by”.

    In the second question, you did not have the option to use “by” so the correct answer was “on”.

    Very sharp of you to realize that. All the best to you, Bovena.

    Monday, March 7th 2011

      This wasn’t clear to me yet .Please could you give for me more information about this I’ll be wait for yor answer god goesa you each day.

      Sunday, September 11th 2011

        God bless you .sorry

        Sunday, September 11th 2011

on Singapore Airlines, on Singapore Airlines, on Singapore Airlines, on Singapore Airlines … damn:)

Thursday, February 3rd 2011

Dear Rebecca.
Could you please explain me one little thing from your test.
Part of first question: “so we’re going to have to get up really early”.
I can’t understand why both words “going to” and “have to” are used here. “Going to” means “we plan to do snth”. Ann “have to” means “we are forced by circumstances to do smth”. Why do you use this phrases together?
Thanks a lot in advance!

Thursday, February 3rd 2011

    We use both sometimes because there is something we are going to do because we have to do it, not because we necessarily want to do it or choose to do it. In the example above, there are two facts: we are going to get up early and we have to get up early. We are simply emphasizing the fact that both these situations exist -we are going to get up early because we have to get up early, not otherwise.

    Hope this helps! My best wishes to you, Nikolay.

    Monday, March 7th 2011

      You make the things easy thanks teacher.

      Sunday, September 11th 2011

      Thank you Rebecca for your explanation with this comment… Best regards…

Tuesday, February 8th 2011

THANK YOU REBECCA

Wednesday, February 9th 2011

Thanks teacher…. But I have bit confusion regarding “arrive, reach” do we use preposition after these words?

Thursday, February 10th 2011

    Let’s look at some examples:

    We arrived at the airport on time.
    We arrived in London yesterday.
    We arrived on time.
    We arrived home late.

    The last one is an exception, because we are talking about home, but in all other cases we do need to use a preposition with the verb “arrive”.

    Now, let’s look at the verb “reach”.

    What time did you reach the pharmacy?
    When will we reach London?
    He reached the church in time for the wedding.
    We reached home safely.

    As you can see, we do not need a preposition with the verb “reach” when we are talking about reach to mean arrive.

    However, there are some phrasal verbs using the word “reach” which do need a preposition. For example,

    I reached for the soap, but it slipped from my hand.

    The fireman reached out to help the young boy escape from the building.

    So you see,the usage depends on the meaning!

    My best wishes to you, Jibi and thanks for the good question.

    Monday, March 7th 2011

Thanx a lot, it help me a lot

good lesson

Tuesday, February 22nd 2011

thanks for your Nice teaching… And but i have more difficulties about these…! I have to, I had to , I have been , I had been, I have being , I had being……… thnks.

Wednesday, February 23rd 2011

    Well, we cannot say the following:

    I have being…
    I had being…

    You can only use the first two, I have been or I had been.

    For example,

    I have been to London many times in my life.

    I had been to London on my last visit.

    Please check the grammar lessons on our website for some more help with these perfect tenses.

    My best wishes to you, Jamil.

Monday, March 7th 2011

thanks a lot teacher I really could recognize now

Monday, March 7th 2011

Rebecca, thank you very much for easy and really understandable explanation. It really helps.
I have a question right here.
What doest this sentence mean: “we’re going to have to get up early” I didn’t quite understand why w4e need to add :have to” I used to say be going to – to underline my intention. Or “have to “ – to underline the necessity to do smth. Why do we need so complicated structure?
And one more question: according to your lesson – the preposition “on” is to be used when we say about airline carrier, but why then in the quiz sentence #4 (which airline did you travel by?) we use the preposition by and why in then in the 6th sentence we use on? ( 6-have you ever flown on Singapore airlines?)
I’d really appreciate your kind reply and explanation as well.
All the best and thank you in advance.

Monday, March 21st 2011

Hello Rebecca! You probably tired of thousands of questions, suggestions and all that stuff. But I`ll take a risk and ask you too.))) I know that word “Though” has a different minings (at least my dictionary gives me 5 to 7 interpretations). I hear this word many times a day in people`s conversations. And every time trying to translate it on my native language (Russian) I get different results (meanings). That`s why I get confused pretty often. Is it worth to do a lesson about this word and its usage? How do you think? Looking forward to get your reply. Best regards. Natalie.

Thursday, March 24th 2011

Hi Rebecca.. Can you give me more examples of the difference between Although and Though… i have few explanations in my book but i need more.. i guess your’s is more clear. thanks a lot! godbless.

hi!
I like listening your video lessons, you are a great teacher but i need to speak better, and improve my accent ¿what do I do?

Saturday, March 31st 2012

thanks,but just one things it would be better if you upload the videos on your site or other server except youtube coz its inaccessible in iran and im sure its the same in some other middle east countries
p.s:its not that we can’t wathch it at all,we can watch it but we have to use vpn and it would be more convenient if we could access videos without it

Thursday, April 26th 2012

    I’m sorry to hear you’re having problems! I wish it could be made more convenient, but the income from Youtube ads helps keep the site going.

    Wednesday, May 2nd 2012

    It’s also *REALLY* expensive to host our own videos. Unfortunately, it’s not an option at this point, Ali.
