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

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!

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 ..


    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.

thanks alot dear Rebecca.


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


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


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.

Profile photo of raul 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.

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

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

    Thanks for your comments and all the best to you.

Hell dear Rebecca,
I am study IT-Computers level 2 at Isle of wight college, but sometime I find it difficult between English idioms and phrases to describe.
Can you help me between them english idioms & phrases?
I will very appreciate about that
Best wishes Shafiq


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


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

    We do have several video lessons on our site that explain idioms. Please go to our home page and have a look.

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.

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


    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.

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.

    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!

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.

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.


    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.

    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.

thank you rabica for all the useful lessons you provide us. my question is
can i put sometime in the end of the sentence…e.g I wish to visit Italy for tourism in the future sometime.
is this right?


Amazing , thank you


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!

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?

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?
