Very useful Lesson !! Thank you very much :)) Please could you give us a lesson dealing with special situations like how to buy a train or a bus ticket (in a station in a foreign country ) … one way , round trip , cost etc.,

Profile photo of bilel bilel

    I agree with you billel. Purchasing tickets in bus station or in a railway station is not easy at all. One must know how to deal with reservation, round trip, one way and sometimes delays.

      Interesting lesson Rebecca, but just one question. How about the casual expression “what about…?” Can it be used in the same way?

      I mean “What about…?” = “How about…?”

      Thanks for everything Rebecca.

      Regards

thank you very much for your lesson i have one question if we asked some one something used would you like or how about which is the polite one

dewinda

    “Would you like” is more polite and “how about” is more informal, but also works.

    My best to you.

      Hello Rebecca. May you tell me which it’s the difference between “how about” and “what about” ? Thank you very much!!!

      Profile photo of adyyy87 adyyy87

dewinda

Thanks, Rebecca.

Good Day! As I Understanded, we need use -inf, after question like: How about? What about?

Profile photo of conakry conakry

Excuse me – ing

Profile photo of conakry conakry

    Yes, you have to use a noun in this case a gerund.

    In Latin and English grammar, the gerund is a non-finite verb form used to make a verb phrase that can serve in place of a noun phrase. The English gerund ends in -ing (as in I enjoy playing football); the same verb form also serves as the English present participle (which has an adjectival or adverbial function), and as a verbal noun.

Hi Rebecca!!! Very good lesson!!! But what is the diference between how about… what about…? Can we say what about movie or what about Oxford? And Do we need to use a/an after how about …? For example, How about a movie? or How about movie?

Anastacia

    Now I get it!!! We can say only How about a movie? :)

    Anastacia

    “What about” is almost the same as “how about”.
    My best to you.

Very nice video, I have a question. I want to know about 2 things.

1. I am not native English Speaker. When I talk to people I found that they talk fastly then I expect. When I talk with them then I got the speed not because I know something I am scared that I have speak something with mistake. This way their is hard to talk with people. Please help me on this.

2. When I listen to english music the word I thing is not exact what I got in Lyrics. Do someone can help me on these 2 cases.

Thanks again,
Kris

kris

    Speed is always an issue when you are learning a language. It will improve with time, don’t worry. Just keep practicing and try not to be afraid. People would have the same problems if they tried to speak and understand your language.

    In songs, the words are sometimes differently than in conversation and occasionally, people write the wrong words in the lyrics online.

    My best to you!

I would like to say hello all of my friends. I like to learn English very much. Could you teach me English ?

Good

I have some doubts on how to say this phrase:
She said to me “Sorry for cutting you off at the meeting today”
She said to me “Sorry for having cut you off at the meeting today”
In the first one “cutting off” has a present meaning. But the second one has a past meaning.
Which one should I say? The first one or the second one that has the present perfect(have+participle) on it?
Thanks

    Both of these sentences are correct. You could use either one. Good for you that you have reached the level to ask such questions! My best wishes to you.

Thanx to all..ur lessons are helpfull to understand ad speak english.but what is the meaning of..wussup?,gunna,wanna,what are you up to..?..i m waiting for hearing from you:)

shhhh

    This is all slang, which we do hear quite often in movies and on television. In these cases, try to use the context to help you understand the meaning. Whazzup …what’s up?
    gonna…going to
    wanna…want to

    and so on….

    All the best to you!

Thanks for teaching simple and casual way to ask questions in English.
When I was in America, I expressed questions in complicated way.
For example, would you like to go to the beach?
Now, I can say it in simple way instead of it.
How about Beach.
That’s it. Very short.
Next time I go to America, I try to use this expression.
Thanks a lot!!

When I’m asked what about “send”
My answer is “sending it by….”
But the correct answer is “send it by….”
In other words what about is followed by infinitive or by the base of the verb
