Yay A new vedao showed up! :D

First, could you explain me the difrence between crops and harvest?
Secondly, I`ve heard that thanksgiving is because of indians gave food to the “first white people” when this white ppl had not any food and this day was 4th of Nov. But I believe that you are correct o.O Not me..
And last, I love your videos! :D (my mom too, she`s just started learning English and started with you! :D

    The difference between crops and harvest is hard to explain. Basically, crops are the food growing in the field, while harvest is the picked food. Harvest can also be a verb or a noun-meaning one can harvest crops. And yes, you are right, the Native Americans (as is the politically correct term) helped the settlers survive their first year, so the two groups shared a meal together. Hope this answered your questions! (I’m from the United States, so I know a thing or two about the subject!)

      hellohello everybody; I want to inform you that in Morocco and all muslim country two Thanksgiving feast, the first one in the end of Ramadan(Arab month) after month of fasting from dawn to sunrise every day; With the exception of patients and the elderly, and all who can not fast as women pregnant, after sunset; we start our breakfast eating some dates and then we pray to thank God who has given us the ability to fast. and we eat a pre-dawn a meal called Assohour; after the end of Ramadan, we celebrate the blessings that God has given us; The other feast I’ll tell about it later

In Japan, it has Labor Thanksgiving Day. It is also National Holiday. I didn’t know Thanksgiving Day of Canada and USA were different. But Thanksgiving day of both countries are same meaning, aren’t they? I think Thanksgiving Day matches Harvest and God. Because it is different from labors (workers) if foods(or products) would grow well or not…I’m afraid…haha. Thank you Ronnie. It is great lesson for me :)

Thanks, very formative lesson

Monday, November 18th 2013

Well, I’m not sure but I think that things were kinda different. I read that the Pilgrims were starving to death and had not food at all. Then, the local indians helped them with the crops and everything got better…What happened next? The Pilgrims betrayed the indians, took their lands and yadayada…..

Monday, November 18th 2013

    “Had NO food.”

    Monday, November 18th 2013

hiii plz what is the different between can & could …. ronnie

Monday, November 18th 2013

Thanks to your sharing of holiday in Canada & USA. In the Philippines, we do not have thanks giving holiday but we always have vacations over the year because of typhoon. ):

Monday, November 18th 2013

In Canada they do not think of religion is necessary but they believed there is creator.

Monday, November 18th 2013

Hi Ronnie,
Thanks for all your lessons,
I was wondering if you can make a topic about how to use would in English Canadian, I have been listening to much of using word in my work place when people talking to each other but I can not figure out the meaning.it might be conditional sentence but I do not think so, I know is going to take a couple of lessons for you to cover it, I thinks its one of the hard one in English.

Dear Ronnie,
First of all many thanks for your lessons. I just love watching your videos. You are amazing!!!! Also all of your colleagues of course!!!
Recently I heard an expression: “flat out” e.g. She is flat out trying to get documents for customers. What does “flat out” mean in this context. I know my question is not related to this lesson…but I thought you could explain it to me/us.
Many thanks Ronnie in advance.
Have a smily week :-)

Tuesday, November 19th 2013

    Flat out means to try to do something without hiding it. Eg.She doesn’t try to hide the fact that she is getting documents for customers.

hi dear friends how can i download this lessen?
when i download it has very short volume. 508 kb.
wat should i do?

Friday, November 29th 2013

    No Problem! You just download IDM- Internet Download Manager after installing it you should restart your browser then you should be asked to install an extension or plugin of idm or internet download manager. After installing extension or plugin you’ll find download box either at the top of video screen or in the bottom which would be blue in colour after that you’ll find this download option almost every where If there’s any video file on webpage.

    2nd Method,
    Just download a youtube downloader copy the youtube video link and paste it into the software url bar and start downloading it.

Wednesday, August 27th 2014

Ronnie, was it true that in the U.S.A, Thanksgiving is more important than Christmas Day? In Philippines, we had many kind of holidays, one of these was “Ninoy Aquino Day”, he was the former senator of our country, because he wanted to point out the people who were corrupted, he was assassinated.
