Thank Rebecca great lesson as usal

Monday, February 1st 2016

As usual, you explain difficult grammar topics with great ease Rebecca. To tell the truth, this grammar structure is not that easy to grasp. It requires some practice before you put it into real use.

By the way, I looked high and low for the quiz and to my dismay, I couldn’t find it.

I’m sure you’re going to have it done for you (LOL), don’t you? (Is this last sentence correct? Rebecca)

Great Job, thanks a lot.

Monday, February 1st 2016

    “I’m sure you’re going to have it done for you (LOL), aren’t you?
    And yes, she had me and Moderator do it for her… the quiz is there now!

    Monday, February 1st 2016

Thanks, I follow your videos and you are amazing.

Monday, February 1st 2016

Thank you very much. I have my car painted when it is still under warranty.

Monday, February 1st 2016

Amazing lesson! Thanks Rebecca. I had the pipes in my bathroom revamped this morning.Unfortunately, I’m not good with my hands.

Monday, February 1st 2016

Thanks, Respected Rebecca.

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

Thank you Rebecca, I quite understand after do the quiz. Your material online is very useful and very important for using to talk about something I don’t by myself. I got 10 correct out of 10 Thank you again.

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

Hello Rebecca.
Thanks for this lesson . I wonder how to detail who have done the action . Must I say ?
I have the mechanic , my car repaired Or
I have my car repaired by the mechanic. Or
I have the mechanic repairing my car
Thank you again for all your useful lessons and kind answers .
See you

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

GOt 10/10…
can you please teach us about the use of ” USED TO”…
I mean if we have to express our habbit in present past and future

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

Hello,Rebecca! I’m always looking for your lessons. Causative verbs are one of the difficult tasks for me. Thank you for useful lesson!

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

Hello again Rebecca ,
I left my comment before doing the quiz questions . I think I have had partially an answer to my previous question . However I would like if some of my sentences would be correct ?
I ´d like to know if for question 5 , ” Elena has portraits of her family taken ” has the same meaning than ” has portraits taken of her family ” .
Thanks

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

    Hi,
    interesting question. I think that both sentences might have same meaning. question 6 probably is your answer:

    6. Lucas had the roof of his house fixed after the tornado struck. He had to call in a professional repair company.

    If you get answer from Rebecca, let me know. Thx.

    Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

    Hi .I think they are not the same. When you say: …has portraits taken of her family… it means her family had some portraits with themselves and she caused some one took the portraits from (of) them !!or something like that!I hope I’m right . Best regards.

    Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

You´re right!, this changes will be useful to improve the lenguage… being honest, I usally say: I cut my hair last month. Now I´ll say: I have my hair cut last month. Thank you!

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

    sorry, the correct form is: I had my hair cut last month :$

    Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

I shave my bald head every day by myself, no problem; I’m autonomous and I need no barber!
But I need Engvid to improve my English, no doubt….

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

thank you

I have my English improved everyday by Engvid.com.

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

Hello, Rebecca and Engvid teachers. Question 5: Would the sentence be grammatically correct and more effective if I write Eliana has her family portraits taken every Chrismas? Thank you.

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

Hi Rebecca! Nice lesson! Good job! But I did not understand the difference between “I paint the house every year”; “I have the house painted every year” Could you explain this more better? Thanks for all! Good luck)

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

    Hi Batirbek,
    I will try to explain.
    1.I paint the house every day – this means that you paint your house yourself. Without any help.
    2.I have the house painted every year – you do not do anything about painting. You ask every year somebody else or firm to perform this work.

why you not add (ed) in ( cut ) ??

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

why you don’t add (ed) in ( cut)

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

    Hi alhousni008,
    the reason is very simple. Cut is irregular verb.

    Saturday, February 6th 2016

Hi,first I would like to thank you and I want to ask you that `I have my hair cut every month` or `I have cut my hair every month`

Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

    I have my hair cut every month. It’s a way she explained us. rewind it. :) are you french speaker from Canada or?! I’m just curious.

    Tuesday, February 2nd 2016

      I mean,is that present perfect or nope, and what tense is it?
      thanks for reply me.

      Tuesday, February 9th 2016

        Hi,
        I have my hair cut every month. Passive sentence. It is not present perfect. The tense is present simple tense with passive format.

Great lessons. A lot to learn, Thanks Rebecca !!

Thursday, February 4th 2016

Very useful lessons! thank you a lot!

Friday, February 5th 2016

Thank you, Rebecca! It`s very interesting. But, all your examples have only regular verbs:
paint
cut
clean
wash.
Please,give us some examples with irregular verbs in the past tense. We must use second or third form of irregular verbs?

Friday, February 5th 2016

    Cut is irregular verb) by the way it was said in comments above. I figure we should use 3 form in this case, like in passive voice tences

    Wednesday, March 23rd 2016

Thank you Rebecca for the lesson.The form of sentence is new for me, so it makes to look the sentence on different angle.By the way, I had my shoes repaired a week ago.It did my father for me.He is good with his hands.:)

Friday, February 5th 2016

Thanks a lot emo53! Now I understood. It was very kind of you)

I have a question: is this exam really for advanced english speakers? I consider myself at this said level, but, I probably need to improve it. I asked this though, because i found this exam way too easy, and I didn’t even watched the video lesson..Is the exam too simple, or is my english already fluent?

Sunday, February 7th 2016

    What is your goal in studying english? In what way did you use the word “way” in your question? Could you explain it, please?

    Wednesday, March 23rd 2016

Thank you so much, it is very useful…:)

Tuesday, February 23rd 2016

Rebecca, you made the correction in this video about the following example sentence – Original: I had my hair cut every month. Corrected: I had my hair cut last month. Don’t you think it was unnecessary? I mean there was nothing wrong with it. It simply means that you used to have your hair cut every month, but not anymore. Hope for your clarification on this. Thank you.

Friday, February 26th 2016
