Thank Ronnie .I learning a lot with your lessons.

Monday, July 18th 2011

    thank you ronnie I’M ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR TEAHING SO THAT MAKE VERY HAPPY THANK YOU MY TEACHER.

    Saturday, March 17th 2012

Thank you Ronnie very much for this lesson!!! I have one question about this: Why we say, for example “if I were you”, and not “If I was you”? According to this lesson, we should say “Ïf I was you”. Please help me to see the difference here :)

Monday, July 18th 2011

    We say “if I were you”… It doesn’t fit with this lesson because it is a different grammar point (conditionals)!

    Monday, July 18th 2011

      many thanks !

      Tuesday, July 19th 2011

      I watched a lesson about conditionals, and now I see… Thank you Ronnie immensely for your explanation, you are, without doubt the best teacher on Engvid, and at all :)

      Wednesday, July 20th 2011

      so mom…teach me about tht” different grammar point” such if i were u…cuz when i listen to beyonce song with title if i were a boy…i really wanna know..why if i were not if i was

      Friday, August 26th 2011

        Because songs never have correct grammar!

        Friday, August 26th 2011

          Happy to hear that, I needed to know about learning by listening to songs. Thank you for clear explanations always, and I love your style, you are a very nice teacher.

          Wednesday, October 19th 2011

          i am very happy with you.your teaching style is very clear .thank you so mouch.

          Tuesday, June 5th 2012

          oh dear, songs will never be the same if they used correct grammar.

          Sunday, December 30th 2012

        if i were a boy –> conditional if
        exception for I, we should use were.
        all ‘was’ should be replaced with ‘were’ because we are imagining.
        hope it helps.. ;)

        Monday, December 19th 2011

      Hi dear Ronnie. Can i have your Email address? Please If u don’t mind…?

      Thursday, July 12th 2012

    Thursday, March 1st 2012

Thank you teacher!God bless you!

Monday, July 18th 2011

this lesson is very helpful me thanks a lot.

Monday, July 18th 2011

Hi Rohnie,

I am new for the site.I am having some questions.

1. How and when to you the supporting verb “ask”,”asked”.

eg:I have asked him to drop you mail.
I will asked him to communicate with you regarding this and asked him to send you an email.
I have asked him about this ,he asked me to call you or email you.
I asked him about this,but he asked me to give the exams.

I have not found any related topic about this.If you are having any video related to this please share the url.

Thanks,
Praveen

Tuesday, July 19th 2011

    I am not so good at english, but I will try to explane you a little bit. You mentioned three verb tenses in english: Present perfect, Past simple and Future simple. Try to see the difference in some english book, but you use Past simple when you talk about action which is finished. For example: I watched the movie which was very interesting. We use Present perfect when we talk about action that began in the past and still lasts or action was finished at some point in the past. This verb tense is the most difficult because many languages don’t have this tense, and it is complicated to comprehend. And finaly future tense we use when we talk about our intentions, what we are planing to do in the future. This is very similar with Going to, but however there is a big difference. For example: I think we will go to the party tonight. And you never use past form after verb Will, remember, never. After Will you always use the basic form of the verb. I hope this helps, bye ;)

    Wednesday, July 20th 2011

    ask is present tense, asked is past tense, have asked is present perfect!
    I will ask him to communicate with you regarding this and ask him to send you an email. (future= will+base)
    I have asked him about this ,he asked me to call you or email you. (have asked = present perfect, he asked= past)
    I asked him about this,but he asked me to give the exams. (asked = past).

    Wednesday, July 20th 2011

      Great. I love the way to teach. <3

      Thursday, August 2nd 2012

So “was” is the past form of the verb to be used in the singular person and “were” is the form which we use in the plural person except of the pronoun “you” where we use “were” as well.

Tuesday, July 19th 2011

    Thanks but I am not blonde. I am a redhead!

    Wednesday, July 20th 2011

      redhead or red-haired? or can we say both? n it reminds me also with redneck. would be interesting if u put these slangs into ur collections of video, or should i say collection of videos.. heheee.. just a thought ;)
      p.s. also brunette, buffy, chubby, n so on.. i hope it’s not too much.. :P
      i like ur style, ronnie.. cheers

      Monday, December 19th 2011

        I think Redhead it’s true because it means : someone who has red hair !

        Tuesday, May 28th 2013

Hi Ronnie

Could you tell me how do I know correct sentences like sometimes people says

Where is the library?
Where the library is?

and

Who broke the T.V.
Who did break the T.V.

Because I think when we use verb we place do/did/is/am/are/was/were before the verb or it depends upon our tone/situation.

Thanks

Tuesday, July 19th 2011

    “Who did break the T.V.” is just wrong!
    “Could you tell me where the library is” is the only way that “Where the library is” could be correct.

    Wednesday, July 20th 2011

great lesson ^^

Tuesday, July 19th 2011

    LMFAO = Laughing My Fat xxx Off

    Thursday, November 10th 2011

thank you very much, good explaining,

Wednesday, July 20th 2011

Thanks Ronnie ,But actually my question was when to use ‘ask’ and when to not.like i have asked you the question.I have asked someone to do this task and he replied me to do another task or try this way.

eg.I have asked him about this ,he asked me to call you or email you.

In the above sentence I am talking with the second person about the third person(to which i have asked something).and the third person again replied me to do another task ,like call the second person or email him.

It will be great ,if we can have it’s video.(When to use ask)

Thanks,
Praveen

alhamdulillah… thanks Mam,,

Thursday, July 21st 2011

Hi,

Just curious, I got the last Q wrong.

Why can’t we say “Weren’t you at the pool today?” ?

To me, it’s a negative question.

Thursday, July 21st 2011

    You can say it is just strange (too formal/old/British English). We say “Were you at the pool today?”

    Saturday, July 23rd 2011

Thank you Ronnie.

thanks ronnie =)

Wednesday, August 10th 2011

Thank you. I have learned a lot. But, is it correct about the title of the song “If I
Were a Boy”?

Friday, August 12th 2011

    No.

    Sunday, August 14th 2011

      hey dear,u said usually with I WE USE was,but the song is if i were a boy!then here y we r using were,instead of was?

      Tuesday, August 23rd 2011

        don’t worry, there’s a bad grammar, like in many other songs

        Friday, January 13th 2012

    i also asked this question to my school teacher,and she said,when we r supposing then we can use were with I,like here we r supposing if i were a boy,or may be we r using were,for making rythum in the song,,hope it will help u

    Tuesday, August 23rd 2011

    if i were a boy –> conditional if
    exception :
    all ‘was’ should be replaced with ‘were’ because we are imagining.
    isn’t it so, ronnie?
    i hope u don’t mind me clearing this up.. cheers

    Monday, December 19th 2011

Hey ronnie !I took your quiz ,I get it .But I got one of them wrong.Anyways we both did a good job .keep up

so thank you so much i really like your lesson so esye…

Thursday, August 18th 2011

Thank you my gorgeous Ronnie, thanks for everything I learned a lot from specially when it comes of correct use of grammar, ma’am Ronnie i have a question to you, if don’t mind, This is my question! IN WORD ANGRY there are so many synonyms like- annoy/ irritate/fuming/ mad/ livid/ heated.
It is correct instead I Use the word ANGRY!
I change it Annoy or Irritated….
here’s my example….
RONNIE GOT ANNOYED WITH ME!
RONNIE GOT ANGRY WITH ME
RONNIE GOT FUMING WITH ME.
RONNIE GOT MAD WITH ME.
which one is correct?
you reply is my highly appreciated.. thanks and god bless.

Thursday, August 18th 2011

    RONNIE GOT ANNOYED WITH ME!…correct
    RONNIE GOT ANGRY WITH ME ………correct.
    RONNIE GOT MAD WITH ME…. is ok but I would say Ronnie got mad AT me!!!

    Fuming is a verb so you have to say Ronnie was fuming at me.

    Saturday, August 20th 2011

Hey Ronnie! Thanks very much for this lesson!!

Saturday, August 20th 2011

Thanks Maam Ronnie, I really really understand your way of teaching, I am extremely happy from the bottom of my heart…. a million thanks to you!

Sunday, August 21st 2011

thaaanks

Monday, August 22nd 2011

Thanks for all you lessons Ronnie I like you and I learn a lot of you! ThxThxThx!

I’ve two little questions:
You’ve teach as: Was he happy?
Can you say also: Wasn’t he happy?
(I think yes)

The other question:
You say: mostly you say: ‘wasn’t’ not ‘was not’
On school I’ve learn that you in a formal lettle never use the short way. Is that only in British English or also in Canada and USA?

Monday, August 22nd 2011

    Yes, you can say “Wasn’t he happy”! We use this when we here shocking or surprising news……Eg. He won the lottery then killed himself. “What! Wasn’t he happy?
    You are correct, when we write a FORMAL letter we shouldn’t use contractions!

    Monday, August 22nd 2011

      Thanks for answer Ronnie!

      Wednesday, August 24th 2011

    Most newspapers are AWFUL!!! The vocabulary can be very difficult sometimes and the sentence structure is HORRIBLE!!!!!

Sunday, November 6th 2011

Hiii Ronni It is really good and nice I am new in this site but I wanna know how to use either-neirher in sentence.
Regards

Monday, November 7th 2011

    Either/neither we use when we agree with a negative sentence that we agree with. Ex…I don’t like fish. Neither do I…..or I don’t either. Either comes at the end of the sentence, neither is at the beginning! Check out the lesson on engvid…search for either/neither by Alex!

    Monday, November 7th 2011

Ronnie, when do you use “it” and “its” also “lot” “a lot.” Thanks

Tuesday, November 8th 2011

thank u ms. Ronnie

Tuesday, November 8th 2011

Wednesday, November 9th 2011

Wednesday, November 9th 2011

‘I was sad yesterday ‘.Is this sentence correct?

Thursday, November 10th 2011

    Yes.

    Thursday, November 10th 2011

thnaks Ronnie i understand very well…

Friday, November 11th 2011

really nice lecture Ronnie I enjoyed it a lot. Well now I have a question. for your and yours which can be used was/were?

Friday, November 11th 2011

Hi Ronnie! What about with this sentence “If I were you, I’d rather stay away from her”. Could you explain why “I were you” and not “I was you”? Is it possible to use both?

Sunday, November 13th 2011

    We do use both. IF I were you is formal and used in writing/business/school.
    If I was you is casual = used to talk to friends.
    However, I always say If I were you…….. When we use subjunctives (wish, possibility, judgement, opinion), we use “were” in the past for I,he,she,it,they,we,and you!!!

    Monday, November 14th 2011

      so sorry to disagree, ronnie..
      i think we never use ‘if i was you’ – more possible to say ‘if it was you’.
      as i mentioned before, n actually u did mentioned it at 1st above :
      if i were you –> conditional if
      then i agree with replacing ‘was’ with ‘were’ for wish, possibility, judgement, opinion, etc according to the function of conditional itself.
      i hope this little clarification won’t confuse students anymore.
      keep up the good work, ronnie..
      u did great.. ;)

      Monday, December 19th 2011

thnaks Ronnie i understand very well

Sunday, November 20th 2011

Thank You Ms Ronnie for the video.
I got a question here.
In this video, you said that “We were happy”.
Were – past tense.
So, is it more correct if we write “we were happy at that time.” ??

Tuesday, November 22nd 2011

    No, it is not “more correct”. When you add at that time, it just tells me when you were happy!

    Tuesday, November 22nd 2011

O boy
Thanks to you

Thursday, November 24th 2011

Monday, April 2nd 2012

Hi Ronni!
I have a question not about this lesson.

What is correct for of this:

1.Who I am?
2.Who am I?

I heard somewhere, that’s THIS question to myself (from me to me) can be like #1. Is it true?

Wednesday, April 4th 2012

    Only #2 is correct!

    Wednesday, April 4th 2012

      Thank you very much for prompt answer!
      Is the site have lessons for reading rules? Like “ie” “u” “oo” “ou” etc. I found just pronunciation for “e-i” and “a-e”, but it not that what I need (want?) exactly.

      Thursday, April 5th 2012

        Not yet, but keep on watching!

        Monday, April 9th 2012

This Canadian has been teaching young and old for ages. Formy students i explain that Present Perfect is a very personal “feeling” tense. The speaker may feel the connection between past and present which may not be felt by the listener – so he may use past simle to repeat this information!

can you help me about my english

Wednesday, May 9th 2012

please teach me English anyone u did not teach i lost my life.

Tuesday, May 15th 2012

Thank you Ronnie for this lesson.I have one question: can we ask a negative questions? For example: Wasn’t she the person I know yesterday?
Thanks.

Tuesday, May 15th 2012

    We usually use negative questions when we are suprized at the answer to a positive quesiton or like a tag question.
    Ex. A) Do you like pasta?
    b) No.
    A) You don’t like pasta????
    b) No, I don’t like pasta!
    A) Wow! You are strange!
    You can ask a negative question but the problem is how to answer it! Wasn’t she the person I KNEW yesterday? yes = you agree with the speaker saying yes, she wasn’t the person I knew yesterday.
    A NO answer means you disagree with the comment. No – she was the person you knew yesterday.
    English is very confusing and differs from most languages with negative questions. This is why we usually as positive questions!

    Thursday, May 17th 2012

hi ronnie ,plz tell me if i’m wrong or right,( what i understand it )
the “first they” use for people and the “second they” use for animals ??????????

Wednesday, May 16th 2012

    They we use for ALL plural nouns. It does not matter if they are animals, humans or objects!

    Thursday, May 17th 2012

plz can u teach us the date and the time :D

Wednesday, May 16th 2012

    OK! Great idea! I will make a lesson for you!

    Thursday, May 17th 2012

Do I say ,for example : ” once or twice (was) enough .” or do I say : once or twice (were) enough . ”
thank you in advance

hello ms. ronnie!
might I ask you something?
why is it some people tend to say
“A 5 year old boy jumped into the pool”
instead of saying, “A 5 years old boy jumped into the pool”
what is the difference between 5 years old and 5 year old?
shouldn’t we must use 5 years old than using 5 year old?

Sunday, July 1st 2012

Hi Ronnie, how are you?
I’m brazilian and it was in Brazil where I’ve started my English lessons. Now I’m living in the second hispanic country and I’m still studing English.
Here in Chile, the teachers has a peculiar pronunciation and I have a problem to agree with them. For example, WERE and WHERE are the same pronunciation, but to me, WERE sounds different, like a WORE. When I listen you speaking the first E is closed, almost an O. Exactly the same how I have learnt in Brazil.
Let me know your opinion, ok?
Bye, Marcio

Sunday, July 15th 2012

Sorry Ronnie, the teachers have. They have.

Thursday, December 6th 2012

Ex: He was shouted
They were shout.. Pls answer me to this question ronnieand any one know this pls answer me..

Friday, December 7th 2012

    The was/were only changes with different subjects (he/she/it + was)
    (I/you/they/we + were) the verbs NEVER changed with was/were. He was shouting. They were shouting.

What if were/was does not come around he/she/I/they…
Like;

That was magnificent!

If I were (see here were is used instead of “was”, no?) to use was/were in other ways, what are the rules?

I have trouble using was and were, but not really in the forms that you explained.

Hi! I am writing a e-mail to the CFO of my company. The sentence is below:

Attached please find a few pictures and a video of the back room only. The pictures and video I selected were to give you a general idea. I have other pictures on my computer if you would like to see more.

Should I use the word “are” or “were” after the word selected?

Please help!!

Hi Ronnie,

I saw this phrase in one blog at Harvard Business Review: “I remember the day as if it were yesterday.” Notice the verb is here?! It should be “it was”!!
Thank you for your comment.

Tuesday, April 2nd 2013

Thank you Ronnie! My Best Regards!

Saturday, April 6th 2013

thanx alot

Tuesday, April 9th 2013

Hi Ronnie, how are you doing? I have a question for you. I usually apply the “to be” verb formula (sub + verb + etc) like everyone who studies English, that is quite mechanistic in my opinion, but I get confused while reading something in Internet I found phrases like “If I were President, if I were rich” and others like that that confuse me ’cause in my mind is too much predominant the “to be” formula, and I assume that the correct form is “If I was…” but, I’m afraid not. Can you help me with this problem? Thx.

Sunday, April 28th 2013

Ronnie you are the best

I’ll do TOEFL test next week so I need your help please.

witch sentence is wright

1- I WAS GOING TO buy the book but when I heard what the critics said I changed my mind.
