    Hi Rebecca: As we have learned about differnce between bring and take. Bring means sometning to birng to table for example and take means something take away from table. My question is that: many people in canada when they explian something they say “lets take the example of this question”? why don’t we use bring instead of use take by saying lets bring the example of this question? Please help.

    Thanks.

your lesson was good but i don’t you should deliver us lessons have little time duration . the lesson was too small . is there any reason of why it was too short

abbas khan

    We record some short lessons and some longer ones because some topics can be covered quickly and other require more time. Don’t underestimate the short lessons though. Every small improvement makes a big difference in the quality of your English. All the best to you, Abbas.

      In my opinion, short lessons are better. It’s much easier for me to understand each of them one by one than in groups. Your lessons are excellent Rebecca. Now I know the difference between BRING and TAKE. I was confused though at your third question. That’s why I got 5 out of 6. If someone wants to remind me to take something that is mine, then, it should be like this “Marie please don’t forget to take your pillow with you.” I was thinking if take + your is always be engaged when constructing it into a sentence.

good leston thanks.

Dear Rebecca,
Thank you so much for your explantion about the simple verbs “bring and take”. Really, you helped me a lot in my English skills. I have a question if you don’t mind please. What is the difference between “hear and listen”? Sorry for the inconvenience.

RSagum

    Good question. The two words are similar and yet different. They both result in acquiring information through the sense of hearing. However, when we use the word “hear” we usually refer more to the passive, physical act of getting some information through our ears. When we use the word “listen” it means that we are actively and mentally paying attention to what our ears can hear.

    For example, in class, some students can “hear” the professor talking and talking, but their minds are elsewhere, so they may or may not remember much of what was said. Other students may be interested in what the professor is saying and may be actually listening and paying attention to what is being said.

    On a cellphone, if the line is unclear, we might ask “Can you hear me?” Here, we are referring to the physical act of hearing through the ears in this case.

    Hope this helps you. My best wishes to you.

i am really confused about the two words ‘flaunt’ and ‘flout’ . can you please use them in two different sentences to distinguish them. and thanks for your answer . now i know that every word makes enhancement in our english language. i hope you are alright . my regards

abbas khan

    Thanks for your question, Abbas.

    “To flout” means to openly disregard something such as a rule, law or common practice.

    “To flaunt” is completely different. It means to show off or display something in a flashy way.

    Examples:

    He flouted the regulations and was suspended from university.

    He flaunted his new car by driving up and down the street where his friend lives.

    Hope you caught the difference. All the best to you, Abbas.

im havin a question to ask about.
is (ain’t) a common word for all negative sentences?
pls explain it in few sentence

Profile photo of logeshwaran logeshwaran

    “Ain’t” isn’t a grammatically correct word in English, although it is used frequently in a very, very informal way or as slang. So, don’t use this word in a formal, academic or business situation. It will sound and be improper.

    Just use the normal negative form of the verb to be:

    “I’m not hungry.” instead of ” I ain’t hungry.”

    “He isn’t very friendly.” instead of “He ain’t very friendly.”

    We do hear this word used often in movies or music lyrics, but always pay attention to the context before you decide who to learn English from!

    My best wishes to you, logeshwaran.

Thank you very much!

Profile photo of hena hena

you are a great teacher, thank you very much.

Eman

Excellent lesson! I always confuse the two verbs because in my language there is not such a difference. I have a question. There are situation in which it is not so clear if the direction is towards or away from the speaker. Which verb have I to use? I mean is it correct to say that “I bring my backpack with me”? Or in this case is better to use another expression, to use the verb to carry?

moma

    Thanks for the question and feedback, moma. Usually, it is quite clear which verb to use. However, in some cases, such as in your example, you might decide to use the other word. Of course, if in doubt, you can do as your suggested and simply switch to another word completely, such as carry.

    Good for you, that you care so much about your ability to communicate effectively. My best wishes to you, moma.

This was a good lesson. I learned a lot from you. I have a question, the question is how can I improve my speaking skills and do you offer a one-on-one lesson via skype?

Anita

    The only way to improve your speaking skills is to use every opportunity you can to speak English! Of course, if you want not only to speak more but also to speak correctly then you need to find someone who can correct you when you make mistakes. A private teacher would be best.

    I do not offer Skype lessons online at this time, but there are many teachers who do. Thanks for your interest and my best wishes to you, Anita.

nehad

    Nehad, you are not alone in experiencing difficulty in framing questions in English. Many, many students around the world make mistakes when asking asking questions, because you have to change the word order, add question words, and so on.

    I would suggest you get hold of a good grammar book such as Basic Grammar in Use by Raymond Murphy, or any other good grammar series, and study the sections on asking questions. Practice a lot until you are able to construct questions confidently and with ease. First, try to do this in writing and then try to do it while speaking, when you have to be faster.

    My best wishes to you, Nehad.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Wow, thank you for the lessons. By the way, may I ask you, what is the difference with everyone, everybody, anyone, anybody, someone and somebody? These words really confuse me.

Arman

    Everyone/ everybody is used to refer to each person in a group. It is singular, but we use it to refer to all the people in a group, one at a time. These words can be used in positive sentences.

    Example: I think everyone loves ice cream. Let’s buy some for dessert.

    Anyone/ anybody is singular and is used in negative sentences and in questions.

    Example: Did anyone arrive late for the exam?
    I didn’t know anyone at the party.

    Someone/somebody is singular and is used to refer to one person, known or unknown.
    Someone ate all the cookies!
    I know someone who might be able to help you get a job.

    Hope that helps, Arman. My best wishes to you.

hallo. I have a question about the quiz:

Before you leave home, remember to _____take_________your umbrella with you. It’s supposed to rain all day.

Students, before you leave class, listen up! Don’t forget to _____bring__________your assignments with you to class tomorrow, or you’ll lose marks for handing them in late.

I don’t undestend these answeres, for me the right way is using “to take”…no? why?…thank you!

roberto

    hey,Roberto i would like to help u,,actually answer for both of these lines is TAKE becoz in these lines things are going away from speaker as our teacher explained if things r coming towards speaker then we use BRING,,,onthe other hand if going away like umbrella and assingments..
    hope it helped,thanks

    Amy

      Thanks for your help, Amy. A great way to improve at anything is to try and explain what we understand to others. My best to you, Amy.

      Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

    To understand better, remember that it also depends where you are when you say these sentences and use these words.

    If you are at home now and you are leaving home, then you need to TAKE your umbrella with you because you are going out, you are going AWAY from that place, or someone you are speaking to is going AWAY from that place.

    If you are the teacher who is in class, you are telling the students to BRING the assignments with them to the class, to BRING them towards him / her, in the direction of where the teacher is when he /she said this sentence.

    Hope this helps! My best wishes to you, Roberto.

and one thing i has listen yours some of lesson about money saying yes or no ways of saying thanks yours method of teaching and especially your polite behaviour very good
may you live long and God bless you in all ur doing inform me as soon as possible about your answer bye bye

Profile photo of sharoonzeb sharoonzeb

    Thanks for your message, SharoonZeb. I understand it’s difficult to improve your English when you’re in a non-English speaking environment.

    In order to improve your Speaking score, please look at some examples of good TOEFL speaking responses in TOEFL guidebooks such as Delta or Barron’s. That will help you know how to structure your answer. If you can find a good private teacher, that will help too. Also, when you practice, please try to record your answer and then listen afterwards. You may find some mistakes yourself.

    Think of the Speaking response as a mini essay in which you give an introductory sentence, a middle with reasons or examples, and a very quick concluding sentence. Don’t rush though time is short. Speak as clearly and confidently as possible, after studying and knowing what kinds of questions are usually asked.

    All the best with your exam and in the future, Sharoonzeb.

Hi Rebecca,
I have just started teaching EAL in a regular high school this year. I have no special training or background (I am an Eng. Lit teacher), and I am feeling overwhelmed. My students have all been in Canada for 3 or 4 years and their spoken English is quite good. However, these are all university bound students and their written English needs work. They have never studied in an EAL class before so they often know how to say something but they don’t know why. As a result, they can’t apply what they know to other similar situations. One of my students introduced me to engvid and I am thrilled at the resource. Thanks to all of you so much!

    Hi Mike. Thank you for writing. I understand your situation, but unfortunately it takes a very long time to write subtitles or transcripts for videos. Because this site is completely free, we simply cannot afford to put subtitles on the lessons at this time. I apologize and hope you understand. The CC from YouTube that you are talking about is automatic and works very poorly, from what I have seen — you are probably better off not using it for our videos.

can u help me why u used the bring word on the gap above? did’t use the take word? can u explain? thank for your help very much

Profile photo of Mr.Thaipro Mr.Thaipro

    The teacher and students are in the class together, right? And the teacher wants the students to bring their assignments to where they all are now, which is the classroom. So the direction is towards the class where they are now, and not in another direction away from where they are.

    That is why you need to use the word “bring” in that sentence.

    Always, bring it to me, or take it away from me.

    Hope this helps. My best wishes to you, Mr Thaipro.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Hi Rebecca, thanks for the video. I have a question about how to use “his, her, its, their, our and mine”, I know how to use most of them but for example when you say “That person was with his/her/its?? dog? when you don’t specify a gender, how do you know which of these 3 options you have to use? the same case happens when you use “anyone/someone/everybody/etc… for example: does anyone bring his/her/its cellphone? Thank you!

Niko

    In your first example, since you know who you are talking about then you would know automatically whether to use his or her. In the second example regarding the cellphone, it’s a little trickier. Theoretically, you should say to a crowd of males and females, “Did anyone bring his or her cellphone?” However, in reality, English speakers are more likely to say, “Did anyone bring their cellphone?” even though it’s not perfectly correct from a grammatical point of view.

    Good for you that you notice such details, Niko. My best wishes to you.

Hi Rebeca,
This lesson is very interesting and useful. Thank you very much for this.
I have a question which is not related to this lesson but to another aspect of using Eglish in daily conversations as well as i writing. My friends of mine have always been confusing about when to use what tenses. For other tenses they find it easy to tell the difference but for simple present they often ask me: when do we use simple present? and is that right that when we talk to each other right at the time of speaking we all sue present tense? please kindly email me if you can drop me an email with your answer or just post your answer here. Thanks alot!

Duong

    Hi, Duong., Please check the following lesson on the Present Simple tense:

    https://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-present-simple-present-progressive/

    I believe the lesson will help to answer your questions.

    In general, the present simple tense is used to talk about general facts
    (The sun rises in the east.), to talk about routines ( I get up at 7am every day), to use stative verbs (I like ice cream, I believe in God.), and to talk about things which are more or less permanent, such as where you live or work. (I live in Toronto. I work in a bank.)

    Hope this helps you. My best to you, Duong.

its very intersting you are good teacher your talking is very polite i can understand easely..

imran khurshid

Thanks for good stuff.

I have a small confusion between conform and confirm.

Can you please explain where can we use and what is the difference

Profile photo of mutheashok mutheashok

    To confirm means to make sure or verify something.

    For example,
    I’d like to confirm my hotel reservation, please.

    I’d like to confirm that we’re meeting on Tuesday at 3pm.

    To conform means something completely different. It means to follow the rules, to meet the expected pattern of behaviour, to comply with the standards, etc.

    We have to conform when we live in society, event though we enjoy maintaining our individuality.

    Hope this helps, Ashok. My best wishes to you.

Dear teacher Rebecca

I have some question.
Can I use the both BRING or TAKE for this sentense?
“Before you leave home, remember to ______________your umbrella with you. It’s supposed to rain all day.”

I mean the speaker to live the same place with him/her or other place. Please reply.
Thank you for your lesson.

pao

    Actually, “take” would be better in this example, because the person is going away from home.

    My best to you, Pao.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Hi Rebecca.
I’ve a question.
Well,what’s the difference between take,bring and fetch?
Thank you for the lesson and I’m sorry for some grammatical error.

Giovanni

    To fetch means to get something, or to go and get something and bring it back or to go and get something and return with it.

    For example,
    You’re too sick to go out.I’ll fetch the doctor.

    This means the speaker will go out, get the doctor and bring him/her back to the location where this conversation took place.

    All the best to you, Giovanni.

Profile photo of dodos dodos

Could you please also comment on the difference between “bring” and “fetch”? Both mean “in the direction to me”, but there seems to be a difference between “Bring me this book” and “Fetch me this book”.
Is it: bring = bring what you already have with you towards me vs. fetch = go get it first and then come with it to me? (i.e. the difference is in already possessing the book vs. first having to get hold of it)
Or is it: bring = polite vs. fetch = rude or condescending, like in telling a dog to fetch the ball?

emka

    The difference in North American English is that “bring” is a polite request and “fetch” is more like an order. For example, we might say that the dog fetched the bone.

    Hope that helps! My best wishes to you, Emka.

Paris

Any suggestion for improving my vocabulary and my writing.You are a great english teacher.

Paris

    There are so many ways to improve your vocabulary – direct and indirect. A direct way is to find a specific vocabulary improvement textbook and learn from it. Indirect ways include to pick up words through reading and listening. Keep a vocabulary notebook and / or write all the new words you learn on index cards and go through them regularly until they become old friends. Enjoy yourself and you will learn even faster. Try to make a game of it.

    There are also good writing books available that can give you great guidelines to improve your writing as well as point out common mistakes. However, I believe you really need to have your writing checked by a teacher in order to improve.

    All the best to you, Paris.

Hi Rebeca you’re a good teacher that I have seen.. your lessons is so very helpful to me., but i have one question to you what’s the deference between difficult and hard! i hope you can answer my question! thanks a lot..

paquingan.reynaldo

    When you use either of these words to mean that something is not easy, then you can use difficult or hard, and the meaning is exactly the same.

    The word “difficult” is a little more formal, or academic, and the word “hard” is a little more conversational….but of course, it depends who is speaking!

    Of course, if you want to say that something is not soft, then you can only use the word “hard” and not the word “difficult” because it does not mean not soft; it means not easy.

    Hope this helps. My best wishes to you.

I have a doubt. Can I use the verb TAKE for talk about transport?

For example if I talk with a cabbie and talk for him:

Please take me to the most near subway station.

Please go to the most near subway station.

Doubt: is correctly use TAKE in this case?

fabianomix7

Students, before you leave class, listen up! Don’t forget to _______________your assignments with you to class tomorrow, or you’ll lose marks for handing them in late.

On the sample sentence above, why it right to say bring? not take? since the umbrella is not towards the speaker it is taken by the students..

can you please elaborate this to me.

Thanks a lot!

if i was a waiter and i wanted to say to a customer that his/her order is already taken and i would give it to him/her minutes later, perhaps to his/her seat, do i say ” Have a seat first, I’ll take@bring@send the food for you in few minutes ” ?

So, which one is the best answer to this situation?
Your help is very much appreciated. thank you.

I’m new on this website, however, I had no idea how hard it can be for some students to grasp the difficulties of this beautiful English Language. For all of you learning English do not ever get discouraged, never give up, get a book, watch a movie, listen to an audio book, we now have hundreds of possibilities on the internet, this website is a very clear example of what I’m talking about, and always try to make sense of what you’re saying, we are the creators of a language, remember it took a long time for the English Language to be where it is, or should I say a miracle should have happened when some tribal people got together and spoke for the first time something similar to the English that we know today, and what would become the International Language of Communications, Science, etc. yes my friends I really admire the passion that you put on learning English, and the teacher Rebecca certainly has the ability, the time and the extra effort to answer almost all your questions, thanks Rebecca again for the good job, And I’m definitely learning a lot from you guys.
