I liked it. So, can you some video with more pronuntiation?

Monday, June 13th 2011

    yes i can

    Tuesday, June 14th 2011

      The focus of your lesson on these three aspects -pronunciation, grammar, and spelling- made me understand much better the source of confusion between these words.

      The quiz provided useful examples in context.

      Thanks a million for this excellent lesson; Rebecca, you are an exceptional teacher.

      Thursday, July 23rd 2015

you are doing good job rebecca

Monday, June 13th 2011

    I would like to explain that you should use “miss” instead of “lose” because you should say “miss a lesson, a bus, train, lecture, etc” and “lose” is used with “money, keys, bag, job,etc.” Thanks

    Tuesday, January 31st 2012

Thanks for wonderful lesson. Actually I solved this problem before but you suggest me more option.

Thanks Rebecca, I enjoyed a lot your lesson…

Saturday, October 15th 2011

Hi Rebecca. I need some help with the word ‘to arrange’. Here is an example sentence:
– I arranged a tea party.
Well, my dictionary says ‘to arrange – to plan or prepare for; to organize’.
Now, to my mind there is a difference between PLANNING and ORGANIZING. If it were ‘I planed a tea party’ that would mean we just know when (and perhaps how) the event is going to happen. When I say ‘I organized a tea party’ you may be sure that apart from having a plan for the event I made all the necessary preparations. We can’t state that the tea party is organized until we provide enough tea for it, may be some honey etc, can we?
So, if I have been right so far (did I just choose the correct tense, I wonder), then tell me please, when you hear that a tea party is ARRANGED, does it sound to you closer to being ORGANIZED or PLANNED?

Wednesday, October 19th 2011

i got 9 out of 9 without watching the video.thanks!

Thursday, October 20th 2011

thanks rebica soooooooo much

Monday, October 24th 2011

Oh Rebbeca, I might say your classes are so good. I get all you say, your pronunciation is so clear to me, thanks for the help!

Saturday, October 29th 2011

Hi guys!!!
The word “lose” can be used in the following different ways:-

1) I can’t find my wallet, I think I lost it on the train.
2) If you lose your ticket you’ll have to buy another one
3) we lost money on the lottery.
4) She doesn’t eat potatoes as she’s trying to lose weight (= to get thinner)
5) The clock loses 10 minutes every day (means = it falls 10 minutes behind the correct time every day)
6) to lose your temper = to become angry
He lost his temper when they told him there was no room in the hotel
7) to lose time = to waste time, not to do something quickly enough; don’t lose any time in posting the letter.

I hope you all will learn from above.

thank you very much, Mrs. Rebecca, a very good teacher. you are awesome,

Thursday, January 31st 2019

Dear Mrs. Rebecca. The lesson is very good for beginners but not for intermediates and you have sown some doubts. Let’s say, that the world “loose” is a verb as well and can be taken in the contex “to free”, “to release”, “to unleash”, “to untie”. The sentences “to lose a temper” and “to loose a temper” have quite different meanigs and why you have not adverted this trick?

Thursday, February 7th 2019

    word “loose”
