Thursday, February 1st 2018

    Thanks, Jin. I wish you all the best.

    Saturday, February 10th 2018

Thank you, Ma’am.

Thursday, February 1st 2018

Thank you 😊

Thursday, February 1st 2018

I have a great time ..
I am having a great time.which one is correct..where to use “i have” and ,”i am having”..clarify me

Thursday, February 1st 2018

    I have … is for possession. Sample: “I have a car.” This is my car, my possession.

    “I am having” is expressing I don’t know. Emotion? Sample: “I am having a great time.” This does not mean I posses time. I just expresses my feelings.

    Thursday, February 1st 2018

I can’t watch this

Thursday, February 1st 2018

nice!!!, teacher Rebecca, ;)

Thursday, February 1st 2018

Got 09 correct out of 10 ☺ . I enjoyed. It was so useful. Thank you millions and trillions Rebecca!

Thursday, February 1st 2018

HI Rebecca.
Thanks for the lesson. Could you please let me know if the folowing sentences are correct?
Your late was predectibale. You’re always late!

Thursday, February 1st 2018

    Second one is correct, but first one isn’t.
    Your = adjective (your = it means it belongs to you)
    late = adjective (it means being late, not on time)
    I checked “predectibale” in dictionary and does not exists. Do you mean “predictable”?

    I would say correct is this one:
    You being late is predictable.

    Thursday, February 1st 2018

    I’ll say “your delay was predictable”. For me the second sentence is correct but I am not Rebecca and may be I am wrong. Let’us wait Rebecca’s comment.

    Friday, February 2nd 2018

      Merci Beaucoup Marie Claude.

      As a noun late becomes lateness, so we could say.
      Your lateness was predictable. You’re always late!

      Friday, February 2nd 2018

        Thanks to all of you for helping out a fellow student.There are many ways to convey the same idea.
        The easiest way would probably be to say:

        Your being late was predictable.
        Your / The delay was predictable.
        Your lateness was predictable.
        Your tardiness was predictable.

        To be tardy also means to be late! My best wishes to all of you and thank you for watching, learning, and growing eeach day.

        Thursday, February 22nd 2018

Thanks for this great, useful lesson.

Saturday, February 3rd 2018

Hi madam, i have been learning english through engvid for last four years. I have asked you a lot of english grammatical doubts before, but you haven’t considered me yet. I hope this time you might consider me.
My doubt is that
HAD BETTER & WOULD RATHER have the same meaning and can we use ” than ” with HAD BETTER?
1. I HAD BETTER go for a job than sit here.
2. I WOULD RATHER go for a job than sit here.
Do both the sentences have the same meaning and are it grammatically correct?
Thanks.

Sunday, February 4th 2018

    Thanks so much for watching and learning English with us, junaidchithari.

    To answer your question, here are the correct sentences:
    1) I had better go to work rather than sit here.
    2) I would rather go to work than sit here.

    The meaning of the two sentences is close, but different. The first sentence is stronger, more forceful. It means I should really go to work or else the consequences will be bad. It also means I should not just sit here as going to work is more important. The second sentence is softer as it means I prefer to go to work, instead of just sitting here.

    Hope this helps! I wish you all the best.

    Saturday, February 10th 2018

      Thank u so much madam.
      Madam, could you please explain the differences between TO & IN ORDER TO in your next class?
      1.TO get a good grade, you need to hardwork.
      IN ORDER TO get good grade, you need to hardwork.
      How doiffer these in meaning and usages?

      Tuesday, February 27th 2018

Wednesday, February 7th 2018

Hi Teacher,i hope you’re doing great,i have a question about grammar.
1st.example:sentence is”He is so innocent”so can we use an before innocent? are both correct or what?
can you please make a video on it,thanks,love and prayers.

Wednesday, February 7th 2018

Thank you for a good lesson! Very useful

Wednesday, February 7th 2018

Hi, Madam, thanks for the lesson.
Is it wrong to say: Whose that bag?
and what about the expression ” who is that?” it sounds like we are asking about a human but we use “that” normally for non human. can you please correct me. thanks again :)

Wednesday, February 7th 2018

    Yes, it is wrong to say “Whose that bag?”. You should say: “Whose bag is that?”

    Regarding the second point, imagine if someone knocks on the door, and we don’t know if it is a man or a woman. In such a situation, we would say, “Who is that?” instead of “Who is he/ she?”. We could also use the same question if we can see the person, but it is kind of a short way of saying” Who is that person?”. All the best, Batman.

    Thursday, February 22nd 2018

Thursday, February 15th 2018

what is stative?

Friday, February 16th 2018

There are only three ways to improve your english.
One is to learn what’s right.
The second way is to correct what’s wrong.
And the third way is keep moving forward step-by-step.
Thanks you ms. Rebecca for your advice. By the way, did I wrong something in my sentences?
