Thank you Ronnie for this excellent lesson! I have a question. In Uruguay I usually have breakfast consisting of coffee and some cookies. A Canadian friend of mine told me that what I eat every morning aren’t cookies but pastries. So, what’s the difference between cookies and pastries?

Tuesday, June 19th 2012

Sorry Ronnie we call it arugala or arugula ,i think the latter

Tuesday, June 19th 2012

    yes..! I agree :) I think that arugula is correct, not arugala… mhm? What do you think about it, Ronnie? :) Take care :)

Keep up the fantastic work Ronie. Engvid is the best website ever.

Thursday, June 21st 2012

I would like you please to post a video on how to use (a), (an), and (the) in a sentence. I understand the basic but what I am looking for is to explain in details and list the exceptions, if any.
for example this sentence,
“the presentation I delivered was received with great satisfaction.”
now, why wouldn’t I put (a) before the word (great). To me, it should be “with a great satisfaction”. But anyway, I think you understood what I am looking for.

Please post a video on this.
Thank you

Thursday, June 21st 2012

Hi Ronnie! I really like the way how you teach. You are the best you got really a sweet voice. I want to learn use of “About to” in grammar. i have a sentence structure like ” You all are about to weep now” Kindly provide some good examples and where should i use “About to”

French fries… It’s a very funny name because no one really knows the country of origin of these fries… (French and Belgians both say that they invent this way of cooking!!!) But I remember the period when Americans change the name “French fries” to “Freedom fries”…!!! They did that to protest against the decision of the French government not to follow the USA in the war against Iraq… (anti-French sentiment!!)… Such a noise for so little pieces of potatoes!!! :)

Friday, August 31st 2012

Tuesday, July 12th 2016

Nice stuff! I’d also mention “tea” that actually means “dinner” in England…
About the “jacket potato”, I’ve always thought opening the potato made it look like a “jacket”, although “open coat potato” might have been a more visual term lol

Friday, July 29th 2016

    We could have a whole separate lesson about “tea”!

    Friday, July 29th 2016

When you want to say that some food was hot – meaning it was served at high temperature rather than spicy – how do you usually disambiguate it?
