Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    I’m good.
    Interesting lesson.
    thanks.

    Monday, November 5th 2012

    Good luck D@sun, you’re good in English. :P

    Wednesday, November 7th 2012

    you are a wonderful instructor for non-native speakers, so i appreciate your glamorous duty

    Wednesday, December 19th 2012

Hello, Rebecca! Do native speakers use Present Perfect a lot in a spoken language? I heard that you only use Past Simple, almost never use Perfect Tences.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    Yes, native speakers use the perfect tenses, but first always master the use of the simple present, past and future tenses and then start using the perfect tenses yourself.

    Sometimes it doesn’t matter which one you use – Simple Past or Present Perfect, as in:

    I did my homework.
    I have done my homework.

    Sometimes it matters,

    I lost my key.
    I have lost my key.

    The second one means clearly that the key is still lost, so sometimes those tenses are very useful. They are also more advanced, so they sound better in many situations.

    My best to you, Irina.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

thanks,i’m very happy now!!

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Thanks) Have a good Holiday!

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Thanks for correcting my quiz.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Thank you ,teacher.I want to know the difference between present perfect and present perfect continous.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    “I have cooked dinner. ” – Present Perfect – this means you have finished cooking and the dinner is ready.

    “I have been cooking dinner for 2 hours!’ – Present Perfect Continuous – means that you started cooking 2 hours ago and you are still cooking, so the dinner is not ready yet.

    Hope that helps! My best to you.

    Monday, February 11th 2013

      Hello! Excuse me, but in the first sentence present perfect is like past simple, has means of finished action. Why dont we just use past simple?

      Friday, November 15th 2013

hello,rebecca!your way of teaching is very good

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

A
very good lesson to understand the use of to be. I’d like to know if the past simple is more frequent than present perfect.Thanks

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    It may be that the past simple is used more often, but it also depends who you talk to and how well they speak! My best wishes to you.

    Monday, February 11th 2013

thank you :)

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Excellant teaching god bless you.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Thanks a lot!
I haven’t practice my basic grammar a lot since I graduated from high school…

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Hello! Teacher Rebecca,

Could you please explain me the usage of Being+Past Participle? For example,

I look forward to being interviewed on the current affairs programme.

She was afraid of being accused of a crime which she did not commit.

In these sentences I see the uses of BEING INTERVIEWED and BEING ACCUSED. What do they mean? Can I use TO INTERVIEW and TO ACCUSE instead of them?
Best regards,
Victor [From Myanmar]

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    Long explanation which I can;t get into here; sorry, so please consult a grammar book, but in essence in these sentences you cannot use the infinitive. I know English is challenging, but then, aren’t all languages? My best wishes to you.

    Monday, February 11th 2013

      MASHA ALLAH
      “THIS SENTENCE MUSLIMS SAY IT,WHEN THEY IMPRESS

      Sunday, February 17th 2013

Mrs. Rebecca , Thank you very much for such an excellent lesson, It has been very improtant one to practice the three tenses. I got 10 out of 10.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

I like your way of teaching, it is wonderful thank you very much

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Hi Rebeca, I’m a teacher now, but I was a student many years ago. I was studing for many years in order to be what I wanted to be… I have been studing a lot of things in my life… so I think I am a student still.
Are correct these sentences? I don’t know if I write what I want to mind :(

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    it’s a serious problem, dont you think? :)

    Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    “…in order to be what I wanted to be….” — I think here should be “who” — “to be who I wanted to be” not “what” because “what” refers to things :D

    “Are correct these sentences?” — It should be “Are these sentences correct?”

    I’m not sure about tenses because I have problems with perfect and perfect continuous tenses. But surprisingly, I got 10/10 in the quiz. You should change the form of the quiz because this is the hardest thing that I’m dealing with, and I got 10/10 :D

    Monday, November 5th 2012

      Thanks Morfik :)

      Monday, November 5th 2012

    Congratulations, the first paragraph was correct.

    The second paragraph had some errors.
    Are correct these sentences?

    should be

    Are these sentences correct?

    I don’t know if I write what I want to mind :(

    Here, maybe you wanted to say,
    I don’t know if I write what I have in mind.

    All the best to you!

    Monday, February 11th 2013

Hello…
100%

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Refering to your explanation about how is the verb to be used talking about religion, Wouldn´t it be the correct answer for the last question of the quiz “I am Muslim” instean of “I am a Muslim”?
Thanks a lot
Jone

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    Monday, November 5th 2012

Dear mom Rebecca,
I would like to thank you for all your tolerant , you are the one who has inspired me , you let me know the word ” where there is a will , there is a way ” Before I found Engvid my English wasn’t that great and even now it’s not like the best,but it gets better ,,,every time after I finished your lesson, it make me more confident to peak with foreigner,
I really love your teaching style, especially the way you explain !!!
Next time if you don’t mind I would like you to make a lesson about ” how to introduce your self when you are in the first day of your work” what statement you should say and should not say ,
and if you have time could you please give me a hint here ..I am going to start my first full time job in my life next months, help me please ..

Best regards and thanks

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    good luck!

    Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    Thanks for your kind words.

    How you introduce yourself depends on who you are speaking to. If it’s a formal situation or someone in a higher position, then you have to be more formal. This can be done by making samll changes. For example, you can say:

    “Hello, my name is Jack Jones.”

    Informally, you might say,

    Hi, my name’s Jack.

    Hope this helps a little. You might also benefit from watching my lesson on the secret to successful socializing. All the best with your new job!

    Monday, February 11th 2013

      Sorry, I am typing too fast! I meant “small changes”!

      Monday, February 11th 2013

You got 10 correct out of 10.
:D

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

I really enjoyed.
Thanks…

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

This lesson was very helpful for me to understand the correct use of to be.
could you add some more grammar exerciser in to your website so that we can do the practice.

thank Rebeca Madam.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    Please check the resources section for some more grammar – especially the two sections I have written titled, 50 Grammar Mistakes. You could use that as an exercise. My best to you, Virender.

    Monday, February 11th 2013

Thank you for the lesson, it was verry helpful for me, to inderstand the use of the verbe to be.

Rebecca,

Your explanation about the use the present perfect is the most simple to use and clear that I never heard before!
Canadian’s accent is the best for ESL students!

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

I have been a student 4 almost two year, I have learned a lot. thank u Rebecca you’re great.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

thank you for this lesson well done

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

You’re right. In Indonesian language, there is no to be verbs. Consequently, to say I am good in Indonesian, you should say: “Aku baik”.

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

Hi REBBECA WHAT’s DİFFERENT BETWEEN
İ was AND İ were

Saturday, November 3rd 2012

    Hi! Le’t me help you!
    If you conjugate the verb to be, you’ll see that “I were” is wrong. OK? That’s it.
    I was
    YOU WERE
    Sincerely,

    Wednesday, November 21st 2012

Thank you…

Sunday, November 4th 2012

Thanks Ms. for the great lessons, but i have a Question.
Can i use the word”health”. He’s health is better now. is it correct? i’m wiathing for your answer.

Sunday, November 4th 2012

    Describe what you want to say.

    “He’s health is better now.” — I’m not sure what you wanted to say, but I think you wanted to describe someone’s health condition. If so, your sentence is incorrect You could say:

    – “He feels better now.”
    – “He is in better health. ( or “health condition”)
    – “His health is better now. (or “health condition”) — Notice here that I used “his” not “he’s”.

    If I’m wrong somewhere, please correct me. :)

    And one question — Do we put a comma before the word “now”?

    Monday, November 5th 2012

      Your comments are all correct.No, no comma is needed before the word now. Thanks for your help and best wishes.

      Monday, February 11th 2013

    Thnxxx Ms. You have right, Comma befor now wasn’t corect, but i want to use the word”health” to a person who is in hospital and she is going to be better and better, so can make a sentence like” Hi’s health is better now” or can you make a sentence for me, please. again, thanks a lot for the answer!!!

    Wednesday, November 7th 2012

      I hope you feel better soon.

      or

      I am sure you will feel better soon.

      or

      I wish you a speedy recovery.

      All these sentences would work. Good luck, Ibrahim.

      Monday, February 11th 2013

Dear Rebecca I have a question:

Someone got married in 2000, and this person got a devorse in 2010. So, this person can say: I …. married for 10 yers. And this person must use witch tense: Past simple or Past continuous ? This person can’t use Present Perfect because now we have 2012, so he got a devores two yers ago.
Pleas answer!

Sunday, November 4th 2012

    “I was married for 10 years.” is correct.
    All the best to you!

    Monday, February 11th 2013

      How about using the Past Perfect Tense, like “I had been married for 10 years.”

      Saturday, March 9th 2013

Thanks Ms, for the lesson, it was verry easier to inderstand.

Hello !!
Can you please teach us what is the different between basis and basic, and show us some examples ??
Thank you
Talia-philly

Thursday, November 15th 2012

    “Basic” is an adjective, which means fundamental, or main, as in:

    The basic idea of this game is to get the highest point in the shortest time.

    “Basis” is a noun, which means the foundation of something or the reason for something, such as:

    On what basis do you claim he stole your wallet?

    All the best to you, Talia.

So can I ask someone what’s your occupation ? or it’s wrong ? also is it correct to ask someone what’s your job ? help pretty please?

Saturday, January 5th 2013

    It would be better to ask

    What do you do?

    This is more common, as it enables the person to answer honourably no matter what kind of work he or she does.

    All the best to you.

Good question and important difference!

“To make time” means to create time in one’s busy schedule or life to do something for someone.

“To do time” means to spend time in jail for having committed a crime!

“To make do” means to manage without something, or to manage with very little of something. For example,

I don’t really have enough milk for this recipe, but I think I can make do.

Hope that helps! All the best to you.

Thanks Ms. Rebecca for your good teaching…
I got 100%. Here I am asking some tips.
thing is that, I am not a good speaker. But I have too much confidence to speak the people those who are my same level or below my level. I will be smart. But, when I am going to speak with some other people those who are above my level or they are very good at English Speaking, i will afraid. Then, I can’t express any thing. I will say ba ba ba… It’s my problem. As a Trainer, plz provide some tips to avoid this weakness.
Sincerely,

Sunday, April 28th 2013

Thank you so much. Hitherto, I was under the impression that the words “to be” are to be used in future tenses, like, “The building is to be constructed”; “The letter is to be posted” etc. Now, after this lesson, I learn different things. And, which of the following is correct : “Yesterday, I was tired” and “I was tired, yesterday”.

    Wednesday, February 12th 2014

Dear Rebecca ma’am, You are the best teacher I have ever had.
I am sorry to bother you, (my English is not so strong but I try to write my some queries ) Ma’am, I have problem with the infinitive verb “to be “when I see it in the sentences, I get confuse how to use, when to use and why to use it in the sentences and what is the meaning of that, some sentences I understand but not all. For examples:
• We are happy “to be” back with pinkathon Mumbai2013 powered by Mumbai mirror.
• All systems observed were found “to be” in acceptable running state.
• The shoes are “to be” shined.
• Great men are likely “to be” surrounded by sycophant who want favours.
• Every man likes to flirt with a pretty girl, and every pretty girl likes “to be” flirted with.
• Genelia wanted him to be her husband.
• We want her to be her maid of honor.
• James thinks them to be the musicians.
• We believe her to be the murderer.
Ma’am, I cordially request you to kindly make a video regarding to these sentences, which will help us to understand better then what we understand now;if you do not, kindly explain us as your convince method please please……… I hope it will get better soon.
Thanking you.
Your truly,
Vishal

Hello, I admire you a lot Rebecca. Please, could you help me to know how to get prepare for the TOEFL exam, and tell me some strong point to use in the Essay (writing part of Toefl)?
with respect Adela

Friday, February 21st 2014

Hello ma’am,
Once again I m not sure about the infinitive verb “TO BE” yet.
Can’t you solve this problem clearly? You don’t know about it.
I appreciate your teaching from hart. If you don’t want to explain me about it tell me, I will not comment again.
I understand that you don’t have enough time to solve this problem. if you can’t understand my questions, I tell you their Names instead of Examples.
Therefore, I made my problem very easy to understand that I have problem with Infinitive “TO BE” with subject as well as without subject.
Actually, I asked some people who know about English, but They couldn’t explain me.
I know your name is Rebecca Ezekiel
Thanking you.

Your truly,
Vishal

hello rebecca, i need your help…can you tell me what’s the difference between at the end and in the end?

Thursday, June 5th 2014

Hi Rebbeca, first of all many thanks to teach us amazing lessons and specially about the common mistakes. I try to watch ur lessons daily.My grammar is too bad. Only I am confident in present/past/future simple. I didn’t get a point in this lesson that in present perfect some time we use for example I have worked.(we r using have with the 3rd form of verb) and sometime we use have been working.(here we are using have been with verb+ing )and sometime have been married ( have been with the 3 rd form of verb). I am totally confused which form of verb we use in present perfect? and which helping verb we use I mean have or have been. Please please clarify this point.

Many thanx.

Sunday, June 8th 2014

i have got 100%, thank you very ma’am Rebecca.

Friday, June 13th 2014
