Hey Ronnie , i was trying to find a lesson for know how to “negociate“ the rent price.. Do you understand what i am trying to tell? So i was thinking in say for example.. “Originally my idea was to stay here for more than six months.. so i was just wondering if you could make the rent price for two hundred“ .. Is this acceptable? Could the people understand? Thanks in advance

Sunday, October 14th 2012

    I understand what you mean but unfortunately, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to bargain with a landlord! Try though, you might get lucky!

Monday, October 15th 2012

teacher, i want to know why bachelor apartment is not only for a men. i saw, you said bachelor is not for sharing?

Monday, October 15th 2012

    I’m not Ronnie, but I suppose two people can share a bachelor… And on the other hand, it would be for a person (not for a man or for a woman…. I think).

    Tuesday, October 16th 2012

      A bachelor is very small in Canada so it is only for 1 person – either man or woman. “Bachelor? means an unmarried man!

      Thursday, October 18th 2012

        “Bachelor” means an unmarried man!

        Thursday, October 18th 2012

very good teacher. I love to watch your Vedio.

Tuesday, October 16th 2012

I am Sona Sharma from India.I have been a member of this educational site for more than one year.I wanna get my basic concept about English tenses cleared by you.After reading newspaper,watching movies,chatting with people online, I have figured out that an action word known as verb is the most important word in English that I need to know to express an action.Imagine,I feel thirsty.I need to have some water to quench my thirst.Then I perform an action called “drinking”.If I am not familiar with this word ,I can’t express what I want.People simply use this action word in different tenses to refer to different point of time like I drank a glass of water after returning from work yesterday as my throat had dried up.In my previous sentence ,I have used it in the past tense to express that I am not thirsty now but I was..
I am just a begginer.plz help me to learn this language well and also check out my sentences

Wednesday, October 17th 2012

    Yes, your idea about tenses is correct! Very good!

    Thursday, October 18th 2012

      you are the greates techer

      Sunday, October 28th 2012

hi lovely teacher
pls tell me what is different betwen arrive in and arrive at? i mean when we use which word.
thanks alot

Wednesday, October 17th 2012

    Arrive at= a place. I arrived at school/home/the airport.
    Arrived in= a city/country. I arrived in Japan.

    Thursday, October 18th 2012

Most funny qwestions by Ronnie with some irony))), TAL!

Wednesday, October 17th 2012

does exist the word “roomshare” ? what does it mean? thanks

Wednesday, October 17th 2012

    Yes, it’s a word! It means when you’re not renting an apartment all by yourself, but a room in an apartment you share with other people.

    Friday, October 19th 2012

Monday, October 22nd 2012

hi sweet Ronnie..wish everyting is going well with u,i really like ur teachng way speacially its presented with a sence of humor,my qustion is how can i differentiate between simple past and present pefect?for instance when i say i saw and when i say i ve’ seen? my best regards to u.

Monday, October 22nd 2012

Really useful vocabulary! If sometime I might rent a house I would use the right words! Do you know Ronnie? The word “condo(minium)” is a “false friend” of the word “condominio” in Italian. We use it to indicate a sum of money we pay every month for lights, lift, cleaning up…. of the block of flats we live in. Thanks for your help!

Tuesday, October 23rd 2012

    That’s good to know! Small correction: condominium and condominio are actually cognates, not false friends—they both come from the Latin condominium. A lot of English words come from Latin, so there are many Italian-English cognates, like insalata / salad or teatro / theatre.

    Tuesday, October 23rd 2012

Hi Ronnie ,

Could you please do a video on words “ADOPT,ADEPT,ADAPT” ,how to pronounce them .
I am watching English movies in that i can listen some words like “NUTS” and ” bumped ” ,guess these are slang words .

Please explain

Tuesday, October 23rd 2012

Hello Ronnie,

Thank you for your efforts to help people like me to learn right English.

I did listen to -ION lesson. I have a concern, I think -tion and -ssion are pronounced -shin not -ion because if only -ion you have to leave the t in the original word and to remove only -ion and replace by -shin.In action for example, it would be actshin while the right is acshin. Can you please comment on that.

Friday, November 9th 2012

HI Ronie..

i have a little prob on the usage of ”where”..i know how to use it with all other ways besides this rule please help me..
I wanna know how to use ”where” with these words and what the grammar rule is..pls give me a few examples of your own ones..

1 Due to the volume of emails we receive we are unable to respond to the emails where the answer can be found on our web site itself

2 If you have gone to a website where you have to create an account for yourself..

3 This procedure should be followed in cases where dishonesty has been alleged.

4 I heard a strange noise from the upstairs where the children were playing.

5 There is a stage in life where you can’t even hold a cup of tea.

Thanking you
