    I love all your lessons that you’ve provided. Thanks
    what’s the difference between weren’t and wasn’t

    Wednesday, August 26th 2009

      We would use these verbs in the following way:

      I wasn’t hungry.
      He wasn’t hungry.
      She wasn’t hungry.
      It (the cat) wasn’t hungry.

      You weren’t hungry.
      We weren’t hungry.
      They weren’t hungry.

      Hope this helps.

Hello Rebecca!
I’ve found this site a few month ago so I’ve used it for improvement my English. I think I have intermediate level.
But there are some things that I don’t understand :(
For example I don’t understand the difference between “shall -should-will-would” – in which cases we have to use this words?
And the same with “can-could-to be able to-ought to”.
Could you explain this thems in your next lessons?
Thank you!

Sunday, June 14th 2009

    Thanks for your suggestion. I have noted it down in our ideas for future lessons.

    In the meantime, you could consult a good grammar book like Basic Grammar in Use
    by Raymond Murphy. The explanations there will definitely help you.

    Friday, August 14th 2009

Dear Professor Rebecca,
I was seeing your videos a few days ago. In my opinion these ones are very good. I have to take the TOEFL by September 26. What do you recommend me in order to improve my English?
Best regards,

Friday, August 14th 2009

    The TOEFL is a challenging exam of Academic English. There are several skills you need in order to get a high score: not only reading, writing, listening and speaking but also grammar, spelling, vocabulary, punctuation as well as note-taking, skimming, scanning, summarizing, citing and synthesizing. Time management is also important.

    If possible, find an experienced teacher or join a good TOEFL preparation class in order to learn specific techniques to score well on each section of the exam.

    Work from a good guidebook, such as Delta’s or Barron’s. Complete as many practice tests as possible and analyze your responses to see where you need additional practice.

    Learn how to answer both of the writing tasks very well and also master the correct approach for the six speaking responses. You have more control in these areas.

    Also, check my TOEFL website for all kinds of tips and strategies.

    All the best to you on Sept 26!

    Friday, August 14th 2009

      Thanks in advance for your feedback, I am sure that it will be very good for me.

      Tuesday, August 18th 2009

Thanks my great teacher you made my day

Thursday, September 17th 2009

My pleasure! Thanks, you made mine too!

Wednesday, December 9th 2009

    Be positive, do your best, study the right ways to speak….never feel ashamed while trying to improve. You can learn from each mistake. Perhaps you could find an English-speaking friend or teacher to help you with conversational English. My best wishes to you, Ramu.

    Wednesday, July 28th 2010

Tuesday, December 22nd 2009

    How can I help you?

    Wednesday, July 28th 2010

Hi Rebecca,

I know maybe this is not the right place to ask you about this because it doesn’t have to do with “you’re and your” but I don’t know where I can ask you about a lot of things that I can’t differentiate like “It’s important TO me or It’s important FOR me” or the fact of using the verb in infinitive or in gerund (ing) when I’m using it to start a sentence like in “BEING an English student or TO BE an English student”. What I really would like to know is if there’s any significant differences in the meaning or if there’s a specific situation in which I should use one or the other one. Thanks for this wonderful site. I wish I had found it before. Congratulations!


Tuesday, December 29th 2009

    “It’s important to me that my friends remember my birthday.”

    We use this when we are talking about how something makes us feel.

    “It’s important for me to take my medicine on time.”

    We use this when we are talking about something that is necessary for us to do.

    All the best!

    Wednesday, July 28th 2010

hi i was saw your video and i would like to learn how to speak english to the other person thank you

Sunday, January 10th 2010

Friday, May 14th 2010

Congratulations for such great lesson!

I have one question though: I didn’t understand what you say at 3:18. I think it’s something like: “Your SA is fantastic!” What is SA?

Thank you in advance!

Greetings from Brazil! =)

Thursday, May 27th 2010

    It’s not SA, it’s “essay”. This is a paper you write, for an exam or for university, for example. It can be a few paragraphs or many pages long. A piece of writing about a subject.
