Thanks Ronnie for a great lesson.I did learn a lot from you.More lesson to come :-)

Friday, March 25th 2011

Thank you very much. It is really very useful!

Friday, March 25th 2011

Subject about soup was very useful.)) Thank you Ronnie. I always thought that preparation is just step before cooking.))) In your lesson you told that we cannot say “I ate a dinner”. I am wondering why? When can we use an article “a/an” and where not? The same question about using “the” before noun. Thank again. Take care. :-)

Friday, March 25th 2011

    Sorry, Ronnie. I`ve realized just now that I asked you about articles before. And you already respond me. (it`s awkward)I`m blushing.

    Friday, March 25th 2011

Thank you mam.

Saturday, March 26th 2011

Hello miss Ronnie!! I really like ur lesson, they always r interesting and very useful, it was such a great lesson, I’ve learned a lot through u. Could u tell me what the meaning of curry is?

Saturday, March 26th 2011

    Curry is an Indian/South Asian dish made with many spices. You have homework……go to a Thai/Indian/South Asian restaurant and try curry!

    Saturday, March 26th 2011

      Miss Ronnie thank u so much :)

      Sunday, March 27th 2011

        You are welcome!

        Sunday, March 27th 2011

          thanks u Ronnie I made my lunch sandwich

          Tuesday, November 17th 2015

      I have a question about TRY, it is more correct use TRY instead EAT in “go to a Thai Asian restaurant and try curry!”? or can I say “go to a Thai Asian restaurant and eat curry!”?

      by the way thanks for the lessons

      Sunday, March 27th 2011

        Try means that you are tasting it for the first time!
        Thanks for watching!

Sunday, March 27th 2011

Hello Ronie..:-)When can we use an article “a/an” and where not? The same question about using “the” before noun.I hope u can help me with my grammar.Thanks:)

Sunday, March 27th 2011

    Search the website for “articles” (an/a/the), I believe that another teacher has already done that lesson! If not, I will do it for you!

    Sunday, March 27th 2011

    Hi Izzahyazid
    I know it has been such along time since you asked this .
    It’s just that I know the answer and I would like to tell you .
    We use (a) for the single noune which start with a concenant letter not vowel
    for example : a dog , a cat , a car ,a girl .
    We use (an) for a noune which start with vowel
    for example: an elephant, an apple, an orange ,an ice cream.
    We use (the) firstly : for a contenant or natural things like sky , earth , sun, moon etc…
    for example : the sun , the moon, the USA , the UK, the dead sea , and so on
    scoendly: we use the to talke about specific things which we know
    for example : where did you learn english ? on the website of engvid .
    where did you leave your coat ? inside the car.
    we said (the website) because you know which website we were refering to.
    hope you got me.

Sunday, March 27th 2011

its really amazing lesson I really wish to be in the future great teacher just like you…..any way I have a question I see this sentence in my book”at glance sentences for Lee brandon” (she had not eaten since the clock struck twelve ) is it right sentence ? because I think the first action is “the clock struck twelve” hence it must be”she did not eaten since the clock had stuck twelve” because as I think its past perfect sentence so why do they consider it like this?

Sunday, March 27th 2011

    Yes, that sentence in the book is correct!

    Wednesday, June 8th 2011

This is a first time, I comment your lesson. I understand all though my english is not good. I really thank you and look forward to the next lesson.You are an excellent teacher. Nice to see you Ronnie ^^

Thursday, June 9th 2011

Hi Ronnie, thank you very much for your excellent lessons. It helps me alot. But I have a problem in English concerning food. I’m a bodybuilder and I frequently go on a diet so I always want to know how this food was made, and the problem starts. Grilled, broiled, roasted, barbecued I can’t differentiate between them. Boiled, poached, sauteed, same way. Even dictionaries didn’t help me. In Arabic, each of those two groups has only one equivalent word. Because of this problem I never eat in a restaurant when we travel to an international event. Do me a favour and make a lesson entitled ways of cooking, sounds eye-catching (^-^) and explain the terms that I mentioned! waiting for your answer! Thank you again!

Sunday, June 12th 2011

    Oh BTW sorry for any English mistakes

    Sunday, June 12th 2011

    To make a video will take a while – so I will tell you the answers.
    Grilled = BBQ’d (the heat comes from one source – the bottom and the hot grill cooks the food.)
    Broiled = cooked in an oven, the heat source comes from the top.
    Roasted = baked. The heat source comes from both the top and bottom.
    Boiled= the food is submerged and cooked in very hot water ( boiling water). The pot is deep.
    Poached= a shallow pan but cooked in very hot water.
    Sauteed = pan fried. Cooked with oil in a pan.

    Monday, June 13th 2011

      Thank you very much Ronnie!! I have finally understood the ways of cooking after 2 years of suffering LOL. Thank you have a nice time!

      Tuesday, June 14th 2011

      but another small question please. Does any way of those requires oil or any kind of fats except sauteed?

      Tuesday, June 14th 2011

        Usually the grill is oiled so the meat doesn’t stick to it. It really depends on the cook if they add oil/fat to the meat. Roasted would have the natural fats that occur in the meat but probably none added. It is best just to ask the cook/server!!!!

        Tuesday, June 14th 2011

Thank you so much

    Kinda is how we say “kind of” when we speak very quickly. “What kinda (kind of) pop would you like?”
    Kind= nice. He is kind.

you are great teacher

Friday, February 3rd 2012

i am postgraduate. but i cannot speak english. there are grammer mistakes. can you help me?

Friday, February 3rd 2012

    Practice makes man woman perfect. The more we practise (or practice) the more we’ll be able to handle English, or any other language for that matter. GRAMMAR is one word people normally misspell as GRAMMER. Not to bother, we can, together, learn English with the help of Ms Ronnie Mdam. She’s very helpful, and teaches very NICE!!!

    Monday, October 8th 2012

Hi Ronnie.I am from Armenia.I would like to improve my listening skills.When I listen to your lessons I do understand everything, but when I am watching an English film, I always face the music in understanding.Could you please make a lesson about English common simplifications that the English people usually do in informal situations to make their speech quicker and which makes a lot of problems for English learners to understand them.Or maybe the problem is in the vecabulary, as it does not matter how many words you already know, you aaaaaaaaaaalways meet some unknown words for you, though English is not as rich in vecabulary as Armenian is.

Sunday, February 5th 2012

    OK! I will try to make a video for you!

    Monday, February 6th 2012

please You can help me to speak Enghlish fluently….

Tuesday, February 7th 2012

Tuesday, February 7th 2012

Friday, February 10th 2012

Thank you so much that you are willing to help us in learning English.By the way would you like me to teach you Armenian language?You will tickle me in the pink if you say you do.Thank you once more!!!

Saturday, February 11th 2012

    Hey! Thanks I’d love to learn Armenian but I have to study Spanish right now!
    P.S. You have to say I would be tickled pink.
    Not “you will tickle me in the pink”. That means I will tickle you in the vagina! ahahah

    Saturday, February 11th 2012

Oh!Thank you that you corrected my mistake.I am sure I will not make it any more.You made me feel embarrassed really.Ye sometimes you find you in a deep water when you do not master the language.But it is natural, isnt it??I will learn gradually.

Sunday, February 12th 2012

And would you please answer what P.S. means that you wrote in your massage?Thank you in advance, love you very much and blow a great kiss to you!!

Sunday, February 12th 2012

    P.S is from Latin post scriptum and it means Post Script. Post=after Script=writing
    We use it when we add something at the end of a letter!

    Monday, February 13th 2012

hello teacher, is this sentence correct?
“they teach me a lot of things”
and what is the passive voice? thank you dear ronnie

Thursday, February 16th 2012

    That is correct!
    Search the website for “passive” – there are 2 lessons on the site!

Wednesday, April 4th 2012

    Made can be anything that you create (cooked or not).
    Prepared implies that you have the ingredients ready to cook. (they are washed/cut/peeled)
    Cooked means the food was heated/bbq’d/boiled/grilled/fried/baked.

Hello Ronnie.
Speaking of soup may I say cook or only make?

Thursday, January 3rd 2013

    If you open a can of soup and heat it, use cook.
    If you cut all the ingredients and prepare it, use make.

    Saturday, January 5th 2013

      In Russia and other post-Soviet countries people usually cook soups. They boil a water, put in a pot meat, vegetables (cut potatoes, carrot etc.), cereals (for example buckwheat, millet or sometheing else.. it can also be macaroni or pea or haricot). And then all these ingredients cook for one or two hours. Soups are usually served hot even in summer. ^-^ So I think Tusia can use a word “cook”.
      Thank you for this interesting and useful lesson, Ronnie! You’re the best teacher in the world. I like your videos very much. I know that you used to teach English in Japan. Japanese people also like so called “side dishes” or “okazu”. Did you like a living in Japan? ^_^ I have been to Japan too. It’s a wonderful country.

      Monday, June 8th 2015

hello thank y i love u so much u are sooooo sweet please tell me how to refuse in polit way thanks ronni epypt

Hi Ronnie! I know that what I’m gonna ask isn’t about food, but I’d like to know the difference of “I got” and “I’ve got” or “I had” and “I’ve had” … That always confuses me. I hope you could understand my doubt. Thank you! Bye!

Monday, April 28th 2014

Tuesday, January 6th 2015

Plz help me for learn English

Wednesday, January 7th 2015

Thank you.

Wednesday, January 7th 2015

thanks ronnie .can you speak about past tenses for me plaese?

Sunday, January 11th 2015

hi. when I might to use “do” ? in this situation: I do love you. why? thanx

Tuesday, January 20th 2015

    You’d say that if someone says “You don’t love me” or something like that — to correct a statement that says or implies something that isn’t the case. Some more examples:

    – “She doesn’t know Spanish, does she?” “Actually, she does speak Spanish.”
    – “You told me you’d send me a postcard!” “I did send you a postcard…it must have got lost in the mail.”

    Thursday, January 22nd 2015

Hi, Ronnie! I like your lessons! :) Concerning this one, I’d like to clarify, if I want to make soup of fresh vegetables, can I use “prepare” or “cook” in this case? And about lunch.. If lunch is not a sandwich, but some hot meal made by myself – can I say that I cooked my lunch? Thanks in advance.

Tuesday, December 15th 2015

Hello thank

Friday, January 15th 2016

Monday, February 22nd 2016

Hi ronnie, I wanna ask you a question plesae: Can I say I made dinner?

Sunday, April 3rd 2016

Hi, Ronnie! I didn’t understand one thing in this lesson. Can I say that I prepared soup (for example chicken broth) if I take chicken meat, carrots etc? Or should I say that I made it? And … do you really buy soup in cans?!

Tuesday, April 5th 2016

Hi Ronnie you have feeling me very hungry…miam..miam..
