Thank you very much for you lesson.
I don’t understand why in sentence “Every night, Jason fall asleep ___watching television” the answer is while because I think in this case “watching television” is a noun.
please! explain to me

Saturday, April 25th 2009

    I will try to solve your doubt, I am not 100% sure, so If I am wrong sorry, but in that case, watching television -> “watching” is the act of to watch television, so it’s a verb. A noun is a Person, Place or Thing.Only television is the noun.

      Thanks, Marcos. You’re right! Good job!

        Hi! First, I wanna say that you are a fantastic teacher.
        I would like to know the difference between while and whereas.
        Thank you

        Tuesday, November 27th 2012

      I thought the samething that you, I just was confuse about this question. television is the noun. but don’t worry about, always we learn more. thank’s for engvid.

Tuesday, April 28th 2009

Very nice lesson, just a question,
on the fourth quiz question , I put
“During” the cake was baking, Diane washed the dishes.
And on the score said that I was wrong, but Isn’t cake a noun?
So why is that wrong? Maybe because it was the beggining of the sentence…


Wednesday, April 29th 2009

    Dear Marco,

    I think I can help you out. And to Rebecca, thanks for making these videos.

    It really helps to know the parts of speech when trying to understand English. During is a preposition; that’s why nouns are usually following. While on the other hand is usually a conjunction. So what do you do if you find yourself unsure of which word to use? Plug in the definition and see if the sentence still makes sense. Here are some definitions (from Marriam Webster’s online dictionary:

    During – Prepostion – throughout the duration of

    While – Conjunction – during the time that

    Now to use your example

    During/While the cake was baking, Diane washed the dishes.

    So plug in the definitions and see which one makes better sense…

    1. Throughout the duration of the cake was baking, Diane washed the dishes.


    2. During the time that the cake was baking, Diane washed the dishes.

    Which one makes more sense? To me, “duration of the cake,” seems a little odd but “during the time that the cake was baking,” while long, still makes sense. Since this is the definition of “while,” “while” would be the better word to use here.

    While not 100% foolproof, the technique can help you out most of the time.

Tuesday, September 29th 2009

Hi Rebecca,

thank you for your effort on teaching English (and to the rest of the team as well)! It helps me a lot to kind of proceed my knowledge about the English language. One question about this video is remaining: I’ve heard about ‘whilst’ in some cases. So how can I use this in a proper way?

Monday, October 5th 2009

    “Whilst” is not used very often anymore, but in essence it is used in the same way as the word “while”.

    He knocked on the door whilst I was cooking.

    Whilst cleaning, look out for my keys. I can’t find them.

    My best wishes to you.

Dear Rebecca,

I’m a little confused by the sentence “WHILE the cake was baking, Diane washed the dishes.”
In your video you gave us the following rule:
“While+verb” and “During +noun” but this sentence doesn’t follow the rule.
Please explain it.

for example:

what happened?
why sometimes we use (do, does and did) and sometimes we don`t…????

Tuesday, June 14th 2011

Hi Rebecca,
Thanks for your explanations on the use of ‘during” and ‘while”.For you, both of them as Prepositions which are to be followed by nouns for ‘during’ and gerunds for “while”.
I have no doubt about ‘during’, but for ‘while’, in all the dictionaries I have checked, it is never stated to be a preposition, but only a noun and a conjuntion, which rightfully to be followed by a sentence turning it into an adverb cluase. But many regard it to be a preposition, thus accepting a gerund after it. So do all wrongs turn it into an accepted ‘right’ grammatically. I have been puzzled by this quite some time. How do you explain this ? Thanks

Saturday, June 25th 2011

thank you mam rebecca i absolutely understand your lecture…

Saturday, July 2nd 2011

____ the cake was baking, Diane washed the dishes.

as you’ve said in the pass lesson that “during” is followed by noun and the “while” is verb.How come that a cake is a verb? cake is the noun subject am i right? and it must be preceded by during. please help me to understand the rules very clearly, hope you will show some examples that is so confusing just like this.


Friday, November 4th 2011

Can you wait for me _____ I finish shopping?

Why while is the correct answer? can you please explain this to me, coz I’m confuse of the rule “during” is followed by noun and also the “while” is verb. In this Sentence “while” is followed by I and “I” is a pronoun. Is there a rule that “while” followed should follow a pronoun and not “during” plus a pronoun?

hope you understand this question and I’m to give me your response.

thank you very much!

Friday, November 4th 2011

Hi Ms. Rebecca!

I have a simple sentence about During and While and here it it.

I am busy during my work while Mario is dancing with my daughter.

Is it correct? if it is

And if this is not correct,I mean the sentence if it is not correct, please show to me the appropriate one.

Hi Rebecca,
Following your lession, I did the quiz of this lession but I understood the sentene below was be wrong. You explaned that: after During is noun, and after While is Verb (ing)

1._____ the cake was baking, Diane washed the dishes.
– During
– While
I chose “During” but my result was wrong.
I do not kmow how can I understand clearly.
I think my English is not good so I did not understand what did you explan it.

Many thanks,

Rebecca, you say “followed by a verb or a noun.”

your explanation is not clear to me because in the sentence from the quiz: ,”______I finish shopping”(question 8) it is followd by a noun “I” so why isnt the answer “during”

Wednesday, December 4th 2013

I do like your tone of voice, it helps me a lot to understand.

Dear Professor Rebecca,
First – It is highly practical lesson. Thank you a lot.
Second – The issue of the lack of written sentences that you expressed orally is a small shortage, as it has been said in the above comments.
Third – Unfortunately your video is technically recorded very badly. Simply I cannot hear you. I think that it would be of great help if you replace this recording with a new one.
Fourth – I suggest to watch Emma’s lesson on while vs. meanwhile after watching this class.
We can see and understand while this simple topic you have chosen for us is important for us. I appreciate that your choice of grammar class is based on your teaching experience.
Best wishes,

Dear Rebecca,
I have understood : “during” is a preposition, and “while” is a conjunction.
Yours sincerely.

Rebecca, could you explain this fragment from Yahoo news, please:

“While some parents wouldn’t even contemplate allowing their kids to get physical with a partner under their roof, here’s one mother who actively encourages it”.

Here we have “while + noun”.

U can make a video on must and must not
And u can also make a video on parts of speech and u can also take a topic like shortcuts in writing
eg: didn’t or any shortcut except this one!
Actually I told u to make a video on speech because I am too shy while I am giving a speech,so pls give me some tips.
I want to overcome my fears
and pls make one on overcoming spelling mistakes because I make them very often, u may even find some in this tip which I am writing to u.
You’re an awesome teacher….
Bye take care and keep making awesome videos

Hi Rebecca, first of all I truly appreciate your help of teaching fluent English to people around the world. By the way I am Dr.Venkat, aspiring to practice in Canada. Anyway, I am commenting to let you know that I always get baffled between words advise and advice. I would appreciate it if you would kindly clear me out the difference between these two words.Oh! and I hope my sentence formation and grammar I used in this comment are accurate.Kindly let me know if any mistakes. Thank you again.

Love your job Rebecca
Can smb explain me why do we use:
The children were very restless during the flight, but they ARE fast asleep now. Instead of “they WERE fast asleep now” (because they WERE restless). I mean that “to be / to fall/ to get asleep is an finished action, so why we put it in a present tense form. I’m not sure to formulate well my question but if someone can try to answer, pleaaaaase
