1nce again rebecca proofs she is not boring 1 bit! What about I am learning/ I am learned? Is it correct, the second one? I read it on a book, but teacher told me (my stupid ignorance teacher from india) it is not correct to say “I am learned”. is it?

Friday, January 30th 2009

    @DogMan, “I am learning” means u are still learning and so do I :D, but I think “I have learned” is correct one :).

    Friday, February 6th 2009

    Hi Dogman

    Thanks kindly for the feedback.

    As wagas said, in the sentence “I am learning”, learning is a verb in the present continuous tense, not an adjective. It means you are learning right now.

    The word “learned” ( pronounced ler -nid) is an adjective. Technically, you could say “I am learned.” – it would mean that you have a lot of knowledge or are scholarly. So usually, we would not say that about ourselves, because it sounds a little pompous ( like we’re showing off). We could certainly use it to talk about other people though, as in ” He /She is a learned professor.”

    Hope this helps! Good luck!

Saturday, March 28th 2009

Thanks to eudes, rajkumarkalshetty, fowz, marcos, rachel and amhd for your feedback.

Like any language, English has many small grammatical points such as these, which must be mastered in order to speak and write well.

If you’ve understood this lesson, you have already improved in an area where many ESL students make mistakes. Great work!

Thursday, April 9th 2009

Rebecca thanks for your lessons you a teacher awesome

Saturday, April 25th 2009

    Thanks. Glad you’re enjoying the website.

    By the way, you should say:

    You’re an awesome teacher. :)

    Saturday, June 27th 2009

Dear Rebbecca,
I am a new student to this site. I do enjoy listening to your vie does, but I do have a question for you. I was wondering if you have any videos for verbal instructions in the passive tenses please let me know. The reason I am asking this questions because the majority of students are having problems with this part of grammar.

Thank you

Monday, May 4th 2009

Dear Rebbecca
I have a lot of relatives living there. Why can’t we say,,

I have a lot of relatives are living there.
Please let me know.

Thank you

Monday, May 4th 2009

    Too many verbs.

    You can say either:

    I have a lot of relatives living there.


    A lot of my relatives are living there.

    Hope this helps.

    Monday, July 27th 2009

    Hi, Good day Mr. Mohsen.

    With regards to your questioned sentence:

    I have a lot of relatives are living there.

    –Every sentence should have one main verb. In your sentence, “have” is the main verb, thus “are” is already irrelevant in the sentence.

    Hope this helps. ^^

    Sunday, January 25th 2015

You are so great mam. I love how you teach! Thank you so much!:) what can I say? 5 stars! :)

May God Bless You!

Monday, August 3rd 2009

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

    Friday, August 28th 2009

    according to me.. when we request for something than we use this polite word(MAY).. but at when we give permission to someone or who is younger then ours then we use (can)

Hi Rebecca,
I am a new student online. And I have found very interesting all of your classes. You are a very good English teacher. I am an advanced student, but still I have a lot of difficulties when I write and speak. I study myself most of the time. I enjoy studying and reading, creating my own vocabulary, I also see a lot of television news, series and movies in English only. I’m very dedicated student. I can understand 95% very well. But sometimes I feel I still need a lot to do. Could you please send me a tip how I can improve or be better.
(Could you please correct my writing) Thank you very much Rebecca.

Wednesday, April 25th 2012

thanks a lot for your great teaching
I have a question if you don’t mind :
what about the word “annoying”, how will it be when i want to describe my feeling or to descibe something else ???
is it right to say “i am annoyed”
or “it is something annoying” ??

Monday, April 30th 2012

    If you are feeling annoyed, you’d say “I am annoyed” or “[This] is annoying me” — now, if you said “I’m annoying”, it means you are being annoying to someone else. Important difference!

    Wednesday, May 2nd 2012

Hope everyone is well

Dear Rebecca, Thanks for your lesson.
But I got confused on the quiz #3&4.
#3 says ‘ed’ for someone or something.
#4 says ‘ing’ for someone or something.
#3 should be wrong. right?

Dear madam first of all i would like to thank you.madam i have a problem in uncountable noun. (PAPER) is countable or uncountable noun.you say paper is uncountable noun ,i can hear some people use (PAPERS) please help me this question

Hi Rebecca,
thank you for this lesson,i think the big problem in learning english it’s that ing form can take almost all any grammatically form then when we find ing form in phrase we try to know what does it mean exactly,if it’s(tense continuous,adv,noun,…)
and by the way i have a question: in quiz number three “Words ending with _____ are used to describe how someone or something is feeling.” then why is “ed” true??? i think both are true!!!
thanks forward :)

    Hi. When for example some one is boring it doesn’t say that she or he has this feeling . Tihis means she can make oters bored. When something is amusing we get amused . I am tired because my job is tiring. tired talks about my feeling but tiring talks about how something is. I hope they help.

Hello, I’m not quite sure whether you’ll see this comment but I need to ask it anyway :) Is it a exhaustive list of the adjectives that end with -ing, or is it a superficial one meant to illustrate the lesson?

and another question: according to this lesson we can use both ed and ing to describe someone. is it true?
thanks a lot.

very useful lesson. thanks

Saturday, December 29th 2018

Hi Rebecca,

I’m confused with the ed, if I want to say in past tense would it still be the same? For example I was bored vs I’m bored. Why the present tense form ends with ed.

Monday, January 28th 2019

Great Job, I got 100% Good.

Monday, May 18th 2020

Thank a bunch for this wonderful lesson. I just wanna ask you something that this rules will be fallow all words. Like stop and stoping . Ex:- I stopped because I am stoping my car. It’s correct sentence.
