I’m still a little bit confused but we have one collective feature and that is the laziness ;)

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

Dear teacher, about question number 6, I had doubts about the expression ‘most times’. For me, it seems ‘not all the time’. I got a little bit confused, can you please explain this grammar aspect to me? Thank you a lot, you are the best and the funniest teacher I have ever had.

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

Thanks roonie

    Hi,Ms why aree you so sad?

    Monday, February 11th 2013

Sery usefull and clear lesson :-)

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

You’re right Ronnie. This is a little confuse. going to go to doing to go to going =)

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

The last question was funniest than others …I couldn’t stop my laughing … :))

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

¡yeahhh! i got 90, that means that im not too bad, well i guess jajaja

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

    I think there is a problem with the 9th question.

    Sunday, February 3rd 2013

      why do you think so?. The correct option is I’m going to go home tomorrow.

      Monday, February 4th 2013

Good evening Ronnie
Thanks for this class, really was a very confusion to me about the present continuous grammar.

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

    Oi anselmo.
    Acho que em inglês, a palavra classe nesse caso se traduz em “lesson”.
    “Class” significa classe de aula somente.
    Se vc quizer trocar umas ideias sobre o Inglês eu estarei encantado em ajudar.

    Sunday, February 3rd 2013

      Exactly Carlos
      Thank you very much.
      I am pleasure for your help.

      Monday, February 4th 2013

        Anselmo,
        voce esta certo. Tanto faz vc dizer “lesson” como “class”.
        O que a Ronnie esta fazendo no video e dando uma “class”, e o assunto que ela esta ensinando,future or present continuous,e a “lesson”, entendeu?
        *
        E vc esta “thankful or pleased” pela “ajuda” do Carlos, e nao “pleasure”

        Monday, February 4th 2013

          Lisa, Bom dia!
          Prazer em connhecê-la.
          Muito obrigado, realmente tenho muito a aprender e foi muito importante ter encontrado um site com pessoas tão legais e interessadas em ajudar. Esta troca de experiência contribui muito para aumentar nosso conhecimento.
          Então,
          I am thankful for your help.

          Tuesday, February 5th 2013

          Oi ! Como vai vc ?

          I still believe that the correct word in Anselmo’s sentence should be “lesson” instead of class because in several forums and dictionaries they talk about a difference in the usage of these two words. Furthermore, you’ll notice that all teachers references to other “lessons” not other “classes” in Engvid. In addition you’ll find on top of ENGVID’s website a tab called All lessons and not All classes.
          I think that we can use the word class to talk about a set of people taking a lesson.

          See u.

          Monday, February 25th 2013

      Oi carlos, eu gostaria de trocar idéias a respeito das lições. Meu e-mail é ccvcruz@terra.com.br

      Monday, February 4th 2013

      Carlos, voce corrigiu o Anselmo totalmente errado o que voce disse.
      A palavra “class” nao significa somente a sala de aula, o Anselmo estava corretissimo. Ele poderia usar tanto “class” como “lesson” no comentario dele.

      Monday, February 4th 2013

thanks so much, for such a helpful lesson

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

Clear explanation. Thanks!!!

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

no wiri… I understood…

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

she is going to shopping what’s wrong ??

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

    You can use to + verbing!

    Tuesday, February 5th 2013

      I guess that it is “You can’t use to + verbing!”

      Thursday, February 7th 2013

    In speaking that sentence correct to speak about future action..in writing its not correct we need to put base verb like “..to go shopping.”..and always follow “V1″ after “to”…

    Saturday, February 9th 2013

good day
many thanks

Sunday, February 3rd 2013

You said:I am smelling a pencil,do you remember (to smell is stative verb can not be used with to be)go back to lesson stative verb you will know what I am talking about.please correct me if I am wrong.

      Hai..I’m manoj from india..i have one doubt..I hope you will clear it..”My parents have helped me a lot since I lost my job.”
      “Tom has grown up a lot since I last saw him.”
      The above two sentences are in present perfect using since word..This is the first time i’m seeing since word is used in present perfect..since word is also used in present perfect continous tense..so what is the difference.i have also checked that grow and help is not a state explain y we are using..i demand explanation..

      Thursday, February 7th 2013

        I asked once a native English teacher — “What is the difference between present perfect and present perfect continuous?” Two short examples.

        I have lived in Minnesota for 10 years.
        I’ve been living in Minnesota for 10 years.

        He answered me:

        “They’re both okay, but continuous tenses often sound more relaxed, more natural.” And that Americans prefer the second one when there is an action.

        Thursday, February 7th 2013

          Thanks for your kind reply..i would like to keep in touch with you..could u please give me your facebook account? so we can solve our doubts..

          Thursday, February 7th 2013

Thanks Ronnie!!
Can you please tell us what the differences are between “to be + going to + base verb” and “will”, to express the future?? I’m kind of confusing, to express the future (I always used “will” – ex : I will go home).
Also, what is exactly a base verb please? is it the infinitive form from all the verbs?
If I want to say “I will improve my English”, can I write “I’m going to improve my English”?
Thank you in advance Ronnie!!

Monday, February 4th 2013

    Yes, the base verb is also called the infinitive. Check out the video on will vs. going to!!!

    Tuesday, February 5th 2013

      Hai..I’m manoj from india..i have one doubt..I hope you will clear it..”My parents have helped me a lot since I lost my job.”

Monday, February 4th 2013

thank you :)

Monday, February 4th 2013

Hi Ronnie! Please, tell me why uses passive voice with the following sentences

I am not interested in politics
He was surprised at her sudden disappearing

Thank you!

Monday, February 4th 2013

    I think it’s not passive. “interested” and “surprised” are adjectives. And it’s like: (It is rainy. It was snowy.) Present and Past Simple. May be I am wrong :)

    Monday, February 4th 2013

      Thanks Leonid!
      Sentences are written right. I saw sentences in english book

      Monday, February 4th 2013

Thank you!

Monday, February 4th 2013

Hi Ronnie, I have a question: I thought when we talk about Future we can use: will; to be going to; OR present continuous; but Present Continuous is the strongest form. For example:

I will eat supper with him tonight.
I am going to eat supper with him tonight.
I am eating supper with him tonight.

Is it right ?

Monday, February 4th 2013

a very positive explanation! Many thanks, Ronnie!

Monday, February 4th 2013

thanks… i got full marks……..

Monday, February 4th 2013

Dear Ronnie, thanks a lot for your great lessons! :). Would you please teach us in the future how to use appropriately the past perfect vs. the past perfect continuous? thank you so much before :)

Monday, February 4th 2013

Dear Ronnie,

First, I would like to thank you for this lesson.
I’ve one question – why did you classify this topic as advanced level? I think it should be for beginner.

Monday, February 4th 2013

Dear Ronnie,
I’m Mostapha from Algeria. I’ve seen lots of videos made by you on youtube and never checked the source. Now, I do see this remarkably outstanding website where I can find all your and your colleagues’ amazing videos. I hope that you give them my sincere regards.
About this video, I was going to going to watchchch it, but I’ve been of two minds so I decided to take the quiz first. “I was about to do it, I’m going to do it, I’ll do it right away, I’m doing it, I’ve already finished doing it hhhhhhhhh, hey I’ve done it” ..
Best of love to all the team. Thanks a lot

Monday, February 4th 2013

Hi deer Ronnie
First of all thanks a lot for your new good lesson.
I’v thought when we use “go” verb in a sentence for “home” we don’t need use any preposition like “to” but for other things like “school” we have to use preposition .

Friday, February 8th 2013

80% ^^

Friday, February 8th 2013

Hi Teacher
Please explain the use of “with”? who to use it and when to use it.

Monday, February 11th 2013

Frankly speaking it is a bit confusing for me. Yea its true that sentenses patterned on “I am going to go home.” is for the purpose of saying something about future but according to classical English grammar it doesn’t fit into any of the four (sub-)types of future tense like future indefinite, future continuous, future perfect or future perfect continuous tense. I am confused where to put sentense “I am going to go home.” according to classical type of sentenses. Can any help in this regard to remove the confusion?

Monday, February 11th 2013

    sorry for second last line “classical type of tenses” and “Can anyone…”

    Monday, February 11th 2013

I think there’s a problem on no. 9.

Tuesday, February 12th 2013

please I want to know about faulty sentence structure would you like help me?

Wednesday, February 13th 2013

Thursday, February 28th 2013

Hello guys. Someone can teach my english grammar and also my pronunciation. Here’s my skype account rosehint87.

Thursday, February 28th 2013

what is a verb?

Friday, March 1st 2013

but also the present continuous can express the future or not ??

Saturday, March 2nd 2013

Hi Ronnie,
in this video you are saying the present continous is used for actions which are happening right now. Isn’t there a future tense which is similar to the present continous, i think it’s used for actions or events in the future which are planned AND arranged.
e.g.: I am having a job interview tomorrow at 3 p.m..
If i am right i think this should also be in this video or in any other video. I haven’t found anything about this tense here.

Saturday, March 2nd 2013

thank u..

im going to my bed

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

Hi Ronny,
If sentence 9 in your quiz is incorrect, then sentence 8 is incorrect, too. As far as I know, grammarians who overemphasize the normative aspect of the language would recommend that we avoid the use of the verb “go” with a “be going to” construction. So instead of saying “I am going to go to the mall”, we would rather say “I will go to mall” or ” I am going to the mall”. Also, you could have highlighted some differences in the communicative value between the present continuous and the “Be going to” form as they are used to refer to the future.
e.g:”I am travelling to Spain this summer”(future plan)/”I am going to travel to Spain this Summer”(future intention+plan)

Sunday, March 3rd 2013

Sunday, June 2nd 2013

Here’s an idea: why don’t you hire at least one teacher from the US because we’re basically being taught North American English, and there are qujite a few differences between the way Canadians and people in the US pronounce some sounds and even the intonation patterns are often not the same …
Just saying …

You are the teacher that I discover Engvid with. Thank you RONNIE(with my respect).

Thursday, September 5th 2013

In the Dixon grammar book I use to teach English it says, “the present progressive can be used at times to express future if an adverb of future time is used. Verbs most often used in this way are verbs of motion such as come, leave, arrive,return, and go.”

ex. Are you leaving for Europe next week?
They are coming to New York in July.

Sunday, September 8th 2013

why is this sentence ( shy is going to shopping) false ??
shy is going to shop >> true??

Sunday, September 22nd 2013

I’m an Egyptian English teacher.I still feel shy to check the homework with my students as the type of questions focus on these differences ,My students are waiting for more explanation.
I understand the basic difference of the fixed plan.please watch this video is the teacher discussing an important difference.
