“some time” and “sometime” have the same meaning?

holden

Great lesson Rebecca!
I have a suggest: you could do a lesson about the verb “get”? It have many means and often get lost in his interpretation.

thanks so much!

brunopromano

    Thanks for watching and for the idea, Bruno. Will do my best to record a lesson on that useful word!

Hello teacher!! i just wanna tell ya that u r an excellent one, i’ve been learnin’ a lot through u. This lesson was great ‘coz 2 be honest i didn’t know anything about the word “sometime” .. i’m wondering if u can tell me some tips 2 improve my listening ‘coz that’s the most difficult for me ,,, take care ..

Leslie

    Try to get hold of some English learning materials designed specially to help you improve your listening skills. Start very easily, with a short passage at a level you can understand and then go forward from there. You can do it! Also, have fun with the language. Sing along with the songs, watch some shows, and so on.

    All the best to you, Leslie.

    Rebecca

thanks alot dear Rebecca.

Shahen

Dear Rebbeca! you are really so wonderful. thank you so verymuch.R.J

A.R.Jamshid

Hi Rebeca, “sometime” I will got good inglish if I follow your sometimes listened suggestion: ….”Keep working in English”…
Many thanks for spending your time.Best Regards

Sergio

Hi Dear Teacher. As always, your lessons are very nice and very clear your explanation, but I have a question. Could I use: “some time” or “some times”, and if those is possible, their meanings are different than “sometime” and “sometimes”.

A great hug from Chile.

raul

    “Some time” means something different. For example:

    I have some time before my exam, so I’m going to have lunch.

    Every day he spends some time teaching his son how to read.

    “Some times” is also different from what is explained in the video lesson.
    For example:

    There are some times in life when you just don’t know what to do.

    I hope this helps! All the best to you, Raul.

    Rebecca

      Thanks a lots

      raul

      Thank you a lot for these precisions. You really help madam. Have a good life!

shouldn’t the correct title mean “confusing words” rather than “confused words”? Words cannot be confused, but they can cause confusion.
–Global English Exchange

William Noble

    I think we are both right, in different ways. We mean, “commonly confused words”.

    Thanks for your comments and all the best to you.

    Rebecca

thanks so much rebecca now I knew very well the different between the two words .GOD bless you just keep up.

I’m very very sorry about the first word hello I hope you get it.
We all make mistake

    No problem, Shafiq. That’s called a “typo”, meaning a typing mistake.

thank so much rebecca.

mohameddeeq

Rebeca , good morning . I am here , to suggest a new lesson . Why don’t you create many sentences to be completed with for or to .
E.g: I do it for you / I will send the e-mail to you and so on. Do you remember that lesson you did about the use of do and make ? After watching your lesson , I really understood , that’s why I suggest this one above , because I have caught myself in trouble in how to use these two words to and for , but if you do one lesson about it , I am sure that I and anyone else will not have problem with this anymore .
Please sleep on it .
All the best to you .

ricardo alessandro

    Thanks, Ricardo, for the suggestion. I will try my best to put together a lesson on that. You are right that many students confuse these two little prepositions.

    My best wishes to you, Ricardo.

    Rebecca

Hi Rebeca, Thanks a lot. I have had very good understand about the deference between sometime and sometimes.

Maria

Dear Rebecca! I use to use those words from your lesson intuitively. And now I know the exact rules for using them. Thank you so much for helping to improve my English! Best regards.

natalie777

tnx teacher rebecca for teaching us. when i was 9 years old, i thought that sometime and sometimes are the same, but i was wrong when i ask my teacher, but,she didn’t tell me the meaning of sometime and sometimes, this short video is a big help for me. thanks a lot teacher rebecca.god bless you…=D

reginaclarete12

thank you so much

tfali

Hi Rebecca! Can I say MAYBE when it’s uncertainty?

Eliete

    Yes, certainly.

    You can use the word “maybe” by itself.
    For example,

    A: Are you going to the party?
    B: Maybe.

    Otherwise, in a sentence you need to use “may” or “might”.

    I may go to the party.
    I might go to the party.

    All the best, Eliete.

    Rebecca

Dear Mam Rebbeca,
A couple of days ago, I visited this website and found it very useful to improve my English proficiency. It has helped me a lot in the preparation for IELTS. There were many confusions in my mind regarding many words which have been removed now after watching these videos. Could you please deliver some lectures on how to grasp the reading and comprehension skills by giving some sample passages.
I feel some difficulty in the reading module. Sometimes very long passages make me confused and I become unable to answer the question associated with the passages. Kindly lend me hand in this regard.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Sania

sania1982

    You can find specific help regarding the IELTS exam on one of our other websites, goodluckielts.com.

    I wish you all the best with your exam. Be careful to study how to answer each of the reading comprehension questions as they can be pretty tricky. There are many exam preparation textbooks which can help you as well.

    Best of luck!

    All

    Rebecca

sorry but i dont get it. . my score is 1 over 6 to bad. . . :(

mary kane

    I am sorry you had difficulty with that. Please watch the video again a few times or else try to read about these two words from a good grammar book. Whenever we have difficulty, we should keep on until we find an explanation that gets through to us and helps us to understand. You can do it, Mary.

    Rebecca

Hi rebecca
this is Rahmet Hunzai ffrom heaven on the earth Huza valley Pakistan.Sometimes i will meet u. is this a correct sentence?

Rahmet hunzai

    I will meet you sometime.

    This is when you think you will meet but you don’t know when.

    I meet you sometimes.

    This is talking about the fact that you meet someone quite regularly.

    Hope this helps. All the best to you.

    Rebecca

thank you because i understood now the meaning of these….:)

      Rebecca

wow! i got 100 6/6, thank you for the wonderful lessons, you’re such a big help to us who needs help on how to improved thier english. i have a question. how to pronouns often? is it often or offen? i’m little bit confused. but i usually use offen.

annie

    Thanks for your feedback. The American way is to pronounce that word like “offen”, but people do use the other pronunciation, “often”, as well.

    I always use the first pronunciation of the word.

    My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Thanks to all for your feedback. We really appreciate hearing from you. My best wishes to all of you.

Rebecca

    Dear Rebecca,

simran96

    Useful tip: You can check it out in an English-Engish dictionary, all entries (words) include pronunciation apart from their meaning.

    The stress falls on the first syllable /´kement/

    Hope it helps Simr.

is this right?

neveenoooo

Amazing , thank you

ola3000

Thanks for the lesson, Rebecca!

Could you please teach us how to divide words into syllables? I know it has to do with the pronunciation, which makes it very difficult, but with practice I’m sure I can learn it. After all that’s how I learned how to pronounce the ED ending of the regular verbs. Pratice! Now I can almost do it without thinking about the rule.

Hello Rebecca! Although this is an old video of yours, I’d like to thank you hugely….. I’ve been teaching basic english for a couple of weeks and to be honest, I’ve never heard about the difference between those 2 words which are VERY similar in pronunciation BUT the meaning proved to be quite different. Be sure I will learn a lot from you since I watch your variety of videos every single day…. Regards from Bolivia!

wow very useful lesson for me.

Hi, Rebecca. I believe that you are the best English teacher in the universe! Your pronunciation is very clear. I can understand almost everything you say (98%). And your method of teaching the completely сlassical: both your speech and your deportment are very suitable. You definitely have the gift of teaching. I have benefited greatly from your lessons. Thank you extraordinarily! I want to ask: is it correct to write “I wonder what would have happened if he and i had got married”, as it is writen in 4th question of the lesson? I think the pronoun “i” has to be written in capital “I” every time, has not it?

Sergiy D

Thank you Rebecca.

kosOmmak

i really thought so that my answer in number 1 was incorrect, too late to correct it as i’ve already press the button for the next question. :-)

ann ann

I’m so stuck to grammar rules that I would say:
” I sometimes have cereals for breakfast”.
as I have been taught that the adverbs of frequency should always be placed between the
pronoun and the verb, being the only exception
the verb Be: Paul is sometimes late.”

So, this way of speaking is not natural, is it?

If possible, Rebecca, could you comment on this

way of speaking? Does it sound snobish?
