      Hello! in your video about some, any, you told about using ‘some’ in polite questions when a person is sure the answer to his question will be positive. for example, Would you like some chocolate? and what about this video? is it possible to ask Would like to go somewhere? or Would you like to go anywhere? what question is correct? Help me please! thanks!

      Tuesday, September 24th 2013

Thank for your lesson. You’re a good teacher

Friday, November 5th 2010

Thanks a lot, dear Rebecca! God bless you!
But I have a little question: You said that Anyone can be used in negative sentences and in questions. I thought I can use it in regular sentences too (for instance “I can speak with anyone” – it’s not a question nor a negative sentence). Is this correct? Am I right?

Friday, November 5th 2010

    Yes, you are right. There are always exceptions and this is one of them.

    My best wishes to you.

    Tuesday, December 7th 2010

hi rebecca i have a major doubt though it doesnt belong to this particular section but please it would be great if u could help me on this …the doubt that i have is relatd to futue tense suppose i m speaking to sum1 nd i tell that person hi how are you nothing i good nd then i ask r u on facebook so her rply should be yeah i have just come for a few minutes or i came for few minutes??then i m going to switch it off..

Friday, November 5th 2010

    Hey buddy ! It depends . If you say few , it means a short time a few means some minutes . Anyway you should watch Alex’s class about few , a few , little and a little .
    Hugs from Brazil.

    Tuesday, November 16th 2010

    There are some possibilities:

    I’m here for just a few minutes.
    I’ll be here for just a few minutes.

    Something like that would work. My best to you.

Saturday, November 6th 2010

Hi Rebecca, could you please help us about using everybody, anything, something, is it use as singular or plural form of the verb. thanks and have a great day

Saturday, November 6th 2010


    Everything is fine.
    Everyone is here.
    Something is not right.

    All of these words take a singular verb. My best wishes to you.

    Tuesday, December 7th 2010

      I could never understand why everyone, everybody and everything are the singular.

      Friday, April 8th 2011

        Everyone, everybody is singular,, You’re right. But if you have never understood about it just pay attention to every = each –> singular
        may this short& simple word can help u..
        I wish there’s explanation then from Miss Rebecca

        Sunday, June 26th 2011

        Rebbica you are the best teacher in the world ,you are amazing.i am an English teacher,you iwatched your present perfect lesson then do it in my class.you made it in a brief and clear way to understand
        amazing i like it
        i hope we could communicte so i benefit from you thanks alot

        Friday, July 20th 2012

hi rebecca . i hope you are doing well .you said that anyone and other words put tegether with ,any, to make it pronoun can be only used in negative or in interrogative sentence . here i have the one which is different ” i need to get food , anything you give me” it is different in this one . what type of sentence is this

Saturday, November 6th 2010

    Hi Abbas ! That is pretty simple . The word any can also be used in affirmative sentence when you don’t mind about . In this case ( anything you give me ) it means : I don’t mind what you have to give me whatever you give me I accept . I hope it cleans up your mind . You can ask any question here .
    Hugs from Brazil.

Hello Rebecca,
Thank you for the wonderful lesson. I’d like to ask you about the difference between two sentenses. “Would you like to drink something?” and “Would you like to drink anything?” I usually use the first sentence instead of the second one.
Thank you in advance.

Saturday, November 6th 2010


Sunday, November 7th 2010

Sunday, November 7th 2010

Hi Rebbeca, your videos are always so brainy, and are a nice delicacy for me. They teach me, though I can not always understand all the explanations, for that reason I was thinking if you could put in the bottom of the picture the text of that you transcription of that you speak.
Thank you a lots and have a nice day

Sunday, November 7th 2010

    Thanks Raul. Just try to understand as best you can, as in real life the conversation will take place even faster! I am sure you will get it, take your time and you will succeed soon enough.

    My best wishes to you, Raul.

Monday, November 8th 2010

Someone already asked you about this earlier but I really don’t understand why you (English speakers) sometimes say “do you want something?” or “did you say something?” aren’t you supposed to say “do you want anything” and “did you say anything?” :-S I’m so confused everytime I have to say something like that.

Monday, November 8th 2010

I love you’re website it helps a lot with my test when I’m at home. =)=D

Notwithstanding the fact that you are an English native speaker, I understand your English (100%). This is amazing. It’s no exaggeration to say that you have an excellent ability to teach English.

Thursday, November 11th 2010

thanks alot
it is useful lesson
your way of teaching very easy

Thursday, November 11th 2010

hello Rebecca how’re you?So o saw your video and help me so much but i wanna know about ‘GANNA’ i weiting from this world bye bye and have a beautiful day’s with all my respect from me to you DANIELA

Friday, November 12th 2010

    Well, the word “gonna” is 100% slang.

    You will hear it in movies and on TV, and native speakers do use it in conversation with friends but it is used only in informal situations.

    It is the slang for “going to” – as in:

    I’m gonna call him later.

    instead of

    I’m going to call him later.

    Hope this helps. My best wishes to you.

    Monday, December 13th 2010

Saturday, November 20th 2010

Thank You Rebeca, You’re a Great Theacher, Your videos are helping me alot, Gracias Again…

Saturday, November 20th 2010

Thank you Ms Robecca for your very good online english teaching. One thing I would like to ask for your help. coul you please tell me the best method that can help me to generate logic ideas and supporting points in the questions 1 & 2 in speaking, and question 2 (essay) of the iBT Toefl. These are parts that seem to be more difficult to me in this Test.

Good bless!


Sunday, November 21st 2010

    Questions 1 & 2 in the Speaking section of the TOEFL iBT are the Independent questions. Try to think of your answer as a mini mini essay. Start with an introduction, give a few reasons, and then add a concluding sentence, if you have time. At least try to say, ‘ And that’s why…I want to visit Rome” or “That’s why I would like to learn how to play the guitar.” These would be sufficient as concluding sentences.

    There are some sample answers to speaking topics on my goodlucktoefl website, which should help you.

    To learn how to write a logical essay, please watch this lesson:


    If you follow the method explained in the video you will definitely get higher marks for the organizational aspect of your answer.

    All the best with your exam, and with your English, Baker.

    Monday, December 13th 2010

Thank you teacher,,,,, i love d way of teaching….. Grammer test is helping me a lot

Monday, November 22nd 2010

Great job!! thx Rebeca, your lessons are very
helpful thx kindly!

Tuesday, November 23rd 2010

Sorry, we are not allowed to let you download. These are YouTube’s rules.

Tuesday, November 23rd 2010

what’s deferent between no one and none ?

Wednesday, November 24th 2010

    Well, let’s look at some examples:

    No one here is above 30.
    None of the people here are over 30.

    Besides the differences in usage as shown above, “no one” is used to refer to people alone.

    “None” can be used to refer to people or things or places.

    For example:
    None of the cities I visited were boring.
    None of the shirts were cheap.

    Hope this helps! My best to you.

    Monday, December 13th 2010

      Yay!! Thank you Rebecca, now I finally understood this difference.

      Tuesday, March 3rd 2015

That’s good for me. I’m so thankful for your lessons.

Tuesday, December 7th 2010

Could you guys do a leeson on Finally and finaly. Im not to sure what the diffrence is? Thank you

Wednesday, December 8th 2010

    Actually, the correct word is finally, which means “in the end” or “at last”.

    There is no word such as finaly.

    Perhaps you mean to ask about the word “finale”, as in “the grand finale”, which means the final competition, the big race, the deciding event, etc.

    Hope this helps. My best wishes to you, Daniel.

    Monday, December 13th 2010

      The grand finale can also mean the last part of any performance.

      Monday, December 13th 2010

Should it be ‘anyone’ or ‘any one’ in this sentence. Which one is correct? I hope you’d reply at your earliest convenience.

Happy New Year!

Hi Ms Rebecca would you mind if I ask some sentences I get confused? :) What does it mean if they said or differences between these of two “I don’t know who is that” and “I don’t know who that is”?

Wednesday, February 1st 2012

    Well, the first one isn’t grammatically correct. “Who is that?” is a question on its own.

Hii mam,
Today,I have set up my mind to describe a number.It’s gonna be about a number description.In order to explain a number, I have chosen a five digit number,say 78431.Next,the description is gonna come.It reads like the following.
First of all,It’s a five digit number as it contains five individual digits in it.In the number,1 is placed at the extreme right whereas 7 is located at the extreme left.There are three distinct digits lying in between them.The number has the smallest digit at the unit’s place while the biggest digit appears at the thousand’s place.Besides it,the digits lying at hundreadth’s and tenth’s place differ in one.If we make a comparison between the boundary digits,we find that the digit appearing at left boundary is 7 times bigger than the digit at extreme right end.Along with this information,we also see that the digit lying one place right from the extreme left position is twice than the digit placed at hundredth’s place while it is 5 greater than the digit at tenth’s place.Apart from this,the number includes two digits which are divisable by two whereas it consists of two prime numbers namely 7 and 3.On comparing digits at extreme left position and one place right to it,we find the former digit is one less than the latter one(comparison between 7 and 8).As the number does not include a decimal point,it’s considered to be a whole number otherwise it would be called a fractional number.To clarify this concept, we might imagine a number ,say 34567.12.As we can see here,the number has some more digits after the decimal point which makes the number to be recognized as a fractional number.In our original number i.e. 78431,if we interchnged the digits at the two extreme left position,we would get even a bigger number than the original number we currently have i.e. it would turn out to be 87431 which would be ten thousnd bigger than the actual one.
I like you to pay a special attention in this section as I do realize that you have completely been confused at this point after reading the confused description so long. You might be thinking that the boy is totally out of mind otherwise he would not have tried to pen down such boring stuff but I wanna let you know that my intention is not to confuse anyone but to express everyhing in english to enhance my potential to be acquainted more and more with this sweet language.
I am really very sorry if you have felt bad but I just wanted to describe a number and that was only my intention.
I like you to correct my sentences as well as give marks out of 10 letting me know my improvement.
Looking forward to messaging you in the future.

Monday, April 23rd 2012

Wednesday, June 4th 2014

Hello Rebecca! it’s really useful lesson for me, but I just want to ask one more thing about this lesson. when we attach ‘some, any, and no’ with other words for example ‘book’ so it becomes ‘any books, no books, some books’. I heard this from native. why do they use ‘s’ in the end of it? please answer me! I’m longing for your best answer. thanks in advance.

Hi Rebeca, I have a question, when at the restaurant the cashier or the waiter ask you “anything else?”, what should I respond?. 1)anything else, thank you; 2) Nothing, 3) No, nothing else or 4) Nothing else?, 5) No, thanks. According to the lesson I would say “1”, but I’m not sure because I have heard the another answers many times. Thank you.

Thursday, April 23rd 2015

Rebeca, this sentence below comes from a webpage of grammar clases.

“Secretaries, job seekers, blog and article writers, or anyone who wants to make a good impression with their writing can use this tool.”

This a positive sentence, written with ANYONE.

Wednesday, June 17th 2015

Hi,Rebeca!Firstly I’d like to say you are an excellent teacher and I thank you for helping me a lot. my question is: why in the Avril Lavigne’s song, “I’m with you”, she uses this sentence: “Won’t somebody come take me home?”
The singer used somebody in a question??…Please, could you explian me why??….Thank you so much.

How to say correct:

I wonder if anyone (or someone) could help me.

This is not a question, but it implies hesitation.

Sunday, May 7th 2017

Thank you Rebecca.

Wednesday, June 7th 2017

Rebecca, I really need your help, I have 2 questions.
1. can we change “one” into plural ?
ex ; no one becomes no ones.
2. If no. 1 is correct, can we replace plural noun into no ones ?
ex : you said the pencils were in your bag but there were no ones.
thanks before

Sunday, August 6th 2017

Hi Rebecca, thank you so much for these lessons. I am teaching English online and I go through these lessons to reaffirm what I thought I learned from my English classes in High School and to learn too. It is helping me a lot. Sometimes, it’s hard for me to explain how these words should be used so I came here and found the answer. Also, because I’m used to hearing it so that’s how I know it’s correct but I can’t explain to my students. So thank you so much for these lessons.

Monday, November 20th 2017

well, this is a great way how to teach anyone, someone, and no one. this is a huge explanation with an excellent teacher we appreciate the chance to get into the course every time. we are all happy to be able to be apart of the platform.
