Jade,
thank you for your help…

    It was a good review of English tenses and auxiliary verbs Jade.

    For me the most valuable tip for this lesson was not to translate helper verbs into your first language.

    So,to avoid confusion, please don’t do so.

    Many thanks for this video-lesson Jade.

    Regards.

    Regino

      Thank you, Sensei, for your advice.
      BTW, what is your “first” language?
      Your flag is Mexican, don’t you?
      Your style is…What is your style ?

IIt’s so hard for me to understand your accent, Jade. I’m not saying that you’re a bad teacher, or that the lesson was bad, but your accent is too different of the other teachers, I’m having some trouble to understand you, yet. But, thanks for this lesson, I’ll try harder to improve my english.

Sanoj

Thank you.

Iamhere.

Could you help me to state the difference between the modal verbs MUST and SHOULD, and come up with a single context to explain both of them to lower intermediate students?

paujorgel

    All modal verbs have more than one meaning – ‘can’ means ability – ‘I can swim’ but also asking for something ‘Can I borrow your pen?’. ‘Should’ is mostly used for advice ‘you should take an aspirin’ ‘You should work harder’ but can also mean something is almost certain to happen/not happen ‘the rain should stop soon’, ‘he should be here by now’ . Must is used for strong necessity – I must work harder, You must stop smoking BUT in many cases ‘Have to’ is a safer option. When you get to a higher level you will see what I mean. Must +be means strong possibility/deduction now – ‘Ah! That must be Juan, he said he would ring about now’. Must + present perfect means deduction in the past ‘see that – he must have killed himself’ ‘We must have taken a wrong path as we are lost!’. Modals are extremely powerful ways of modifying a verb so take your time with them. Good luck

Many thanks Jade

bedaia

this is hard for me ;( im confused about past countinous .

leosuque0804

    The past continuous has very distinctive uses. 1) We use it to describe a long past activity with another action – the past simple- interrupting it “We were having lunch when we heard the news” “I was working in a bar when I met my future wife”. Not important but a good rule to follow – use ‘when’ with the past simple clause and ‘while’ with the past continuous: We heard the news while we were having lunch” While I was working in a bar I met my wife” . Be careful not to use it without the when – “Last Saturday I was shopping” – to the English this sounds like a start of a story and they will wait for the ‘when…’! Better to say ‘Last Saturday I went shopping” 2) to ask what a person was doing at a specific time in the past “Where were you last night at 8.00?” The past simple ‘What did you do at 8,00 last night” is IMPOSSIBLE to use here! 3) We use it for background information in a story – “it was raining”.

    emgee

it was very useful for me. thanks…

recepdemirtas1967

I got 7/9. I confuse tense :'( :'( :'(

Sweety-Girl

PLEASE remove this lesson as it is almost 100% totally wrong! 1) “I have got..” is NOT present perfect, it is present simple and the ‘got’ is not even a verb in this case! 2) ‘…have been talking ‘pres perfect cont the ‘been’ is not an auxiliary, it is the past participle of ‘be’ . As far as I know you NEVER have two auxiliaries together. 3) The word following a modal is always the important verb? Dangerous rule! see: ‘I could never understand’ – never is not a verb! 4) when translating the main verb is more important than the auxiliary – erm- then ‘ can swim, can’t swim, should swim, have to swim, maybe swimming, might be swimming’ etc all translate the same? NO WAY! The modal has totally modified the verbs meaning! This lesson is total rubbish and very confusing and should have been checked before going online – remove, please!!!!

emgee

More on why there are NOT two auxiliaries for one verb. To make an object question we use a question word, auxiliary, subject, verb phrase e.g.: Where do you live? When did you see Peter? What are you doing? To follow Jade’s confusing calling ‘have been’ as two auxiliaries we would have to say ‘What have been you doing?’ So to make the present continuous we use the verb to be as the auxiliary plus the present participle ‘I am doing’ to make the present perfect continuous we use Have as the auxiliary plus past participle of be (been)plus present particle. also what about frequency and other adverbs? these go before the main verb/verb phrase ‘I always eat’ I am always eating…’ I have always eaten’ ‘I have never been to..’ this would not be the case if we follow the rules presented here. ‘I have often been out walking and seen.. would be ‘I have been out often walking and seen…’ Please do not confuse learners! At the end of the video it was stated the main verb follows the modal and the example, was I think, ‘should have given’ yet Jade had just spent 10 minutes explaining ‘have’ was an auxiliary. Very confusing for all – including herself as she looked baffled and quickly moved on. Please remove for all concerned!

emgee

nice

nicebaby2005

Tnx… Very nice class.

yugelive

Great……..Great…….thx

rafi ghan

I see nobody takes any notice that THIS LESSON IS VERY BAD and should NOT be online. Another error: Jade says that ‘Be’ is a linking verb and not very important and not worth translating — maybe in some languages but there are many more where it translates perfectly, oh, and Jade, we use it for state and location. Then later this ‘not important’ verb is now, with Will, the important verb. Huh?? Confused??? Oh and I think it is wrong to call ‘Will’ the future tense – English doesn’t really have such an animal and uses just about everything! Will can also be used as a present tense habit ‘Every evening I’ll feed the cat before myself’.

I am using this video to teach teachers how not to teach and as such it gives ENGVID a bad name. Can’t trust my students to go to the site when you have total rubbish like this on it. AVOID!!!

emgee

    I agree with you

    AbeerN

    Do you give a lessons English ? Please inform me .

    AbeerN

Thankyou for ur helpful lesson. Btw I found in my english book this statement. ” She has been married for twenty years”. Why it used “has been” for present perfect? You told in video if “has been/have been uses for present perfect continous. So it makes me confuse. I really appreciate if you reply my comment. Thx before:)

Nesfidaely

    It’s the passive voice. She has been married and she is still married now.

thanxx jade for helping me to learn

rajvilla4

Thanks to engvid for appointing two British teachers benjamin and jade…british accent is different when they sound from other teachers…finding a main verb is not an easy task..since I learnt these grammer rules earlier.i can able to identity the main verb…
The problem with students the perfect tense has past participle…as jade said had comes as past particle in main verb as well as aux verb before main verb …go went gone (past participle)..have had had(pastparticiple) students do mistake as hadden as past participle.come came come (past participle)..most of students confused with the verb which used in simple past and they are using past perfect…learning
Tense and past participle really helped me identifying main verb…

i am new student in your marvellous website with kind and marvellous teachers.thanks for all .

Thank you

Viktor

Thank you Jade.
Perfect score.

Josmer

So, Jade, when BE has its full meaning, it’s not an auxiliary verb. “I am a doctor.”

When Be helps to make tense of verb like:
“Joe is working at the moment” then it becomes an auxiliary verb. Is this what you wanted to say?

Sonia1234

thank you so much.

WHAT AN ACCENT YOU HAVE THERE. IT WAS A NICE LESSON YOU HAD THERE. I’VE LEARNED SO MUCH, THANKS FOR THE TIPS. HOW I WISH I WOULD BE A BETTER ENGLISH SPEAKER LIKE YOU ALL DO. SO, THATS WHY I NEED TO STUDY, AND WATCH MORE ALL OF YOUR VIDEOS HERE IN ENGVID. :) OH I GOT 8/9 I THOUGHT I PERFECTED IT. GUESS, I NEED TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT ALL OF THIS.

Blackrald

Score 56%, It’s really bad for me. :(, I will go to watch the video again, then I should be make the Quiz again.

Thank you.

chivialoco

    No, yo creo que no.
    1. 56% está por encima de la media.
    2. I think that your problem is related to tenses+auxiliary.
    In short:
    1. You must watch the video again. ( Or: You should watch…)
    2. Then you should learn all the present, past, perfect and continuous tenses.
    3. You should make/do the Quiz again. ( Why ‘should be’).
    Un saludo desde España. No me malinterpretes, sólo quiero ayudar con un consejo.

Hi, this topic is very interesting and important for the learner english, but I would want to know more about the auxiliar verbs, not just how recognize them in a sentence. For instance, for me is important understand when I must to use To be or do in a question…Someone can say me if is there a lesson with this topic in engvid? Thanks

Thank you Jade. and engVi

YiYu

I have got nine correct out of 9, and I found some tricks of these auxiliary verbs:

1. do/ does/ did + v.
2. have/ has/ had + been + present participle v.
3. have/ has/ had + past participle v.
4. will/ might/ can/ could/ would/ should + v.
5. will/ might/ can/ could/ would/ should + have/ has + past participle v.

Could I give you some advice, Jade? The information of your lesson is great, but your speaking doesn’t flow enough for me. I felt bad when I was listening to your class. Your speaking was frequently interrupted, even if I have tried to focus on your speaking but you often interrupted sound making me feel anxious. So could you try to stream your speaking at your class?
