It was a very useful lesson,

would you like to do one about subjunctive? I´m just learning that tense and I do not get it at all

best regards


    hey osvaldo!
    The subjunctive…. we hardly ever use it – it is a very OLD form of English grammar! Grammar is like fashion – it goes out of style and we don’t use it now!! go


      thanks for the lessone
      but I wanna ask you about how i can use have to or have been or has to like this?


        hy how are you?

Hello Ronnie,

Firstly, I would like to thank you and your colleagues for your great efforts which you have explored to English language learners. Secondly, your offer and idea to provide private lessons on skype is marvellous and I would be grateful to you if you send me more details and how soon can we start because I need to practice with you some speaking. Thank you for a prompt response. NB. 1)It would be perfect to have two or three sessions, an hour each, from now to next Thursday. 2) If you are busy the coming days and you don’t mind asking James , Rebecca or Valen to give me a hand, I would appreciate that very much.

And I am Jean-luc, the French Reloup Rouge
But Thanks anyway, apart from YOU has forgot IT is a good lesson

Profile photo of Reloup Rouge Reloup Rouge

I cannot (can’t) get my head around 2 things
1. the difference between like and as-I’ve seen “Like a bat outta hell”, but As blind as a bat”
2. is there a big difference between “fat chance” & “slim chance”- I’ve seen both where the context leads me to believe “small chance”
But Fat is not small- I am all of a confusion!

Profile photo of Reloup Rouge Reloup Rouge

    The person must have said ” fat chance” with sarcasm. Meaning there was NO way there was a chance. That is the same meaning as when somebody says in a serious way that they have a slim chance.


I think I’d prefer to have a slim chance than a fat chance

Profile photo of Reloup Rouge Reloup Rouge

It would seem I have neither a fat nor a slim chance of getting an answer to my question

please help me understand what is the difference or on how to use should, could and would..thank you so much best regards to all teachers..


    You should look on the site — another teacher has made this lesson to help you!
    Should and could we use for advice with you, he, she, they, we. eg…You/he/she/we/they… should/could go to the movies!
    When we use “I”, we must use “would” for advice! “I would go to the movies.”
    When we use “I should have + past participle”, it is a regret!

What are the differences between these sentences? and which of them is correct?

1- I have no headsets
2- I haven’t headsets
3- I don’t have headsets

Profile photo of mar1 mar1

    All of these sentences mean the same! #1 is a very old “British English” way of saying #3. #2 is just #1 but haven’t = have not!!!
    #3 is what we use the most in daily, natural English!

Hi Ronnie,

I wanna to know, when i can use the word ‘have not or has not ‘?

Thanks alot.


    We usually don’t use have or has not! But have not is for I, we, you, and they. Has not is for it, she, and he.
    We usually say I/we/they/you DONT have… and it/she/he DOESN’T have!!!!!!

Hi,Ronnie this lesson helped me a lot after a long time i have easily understood about do,does..etc iam very thankful to you and your team please help for me by using this type of simple methods. Thanks a lot.


hi ronnie,i’m happy i had learn new..(is this correct?i want to ask something,if the band has a name is it plural or singular?example the beegees.


    or should i say “i learned.”


Hi, thank you for useful lessons.
I have a question about using “have”. I often hear people to say “I do have…”. why they use “DO” word?


    Hello….. I do have IS NOT CORRECT!!!! Be careful….just because people say things, it does not mean they are correct! You should just say “I have”!!!!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

    Hi! We say “I do have” to emphasis the fact that we have. Example:
    On their friendship anniversary, a girl asks to her boyfriend if he has a gift for her. The fact is that the boy has been planning for getting her a very nice gift that he thinks she will like very much. So when she asks “Do you have a gift for me, honey? With a big smile, he might say “I do have something for you my darling!”
    I hope it is helpful.

yes no doubt u r an intersting teacher.I like the way u conduct the class with such energy.

I would like to hear from u some grammar.wat’s the difference between the following:
i had some tea
i would have some tea
i will have some tea.
also are the sentences”wat did we have?” and “wat we had?” mean the same.
I am totally mixed up with these past perfect and future perfect tenses both in conversation and in framing questions.when to use what?do u mind explaining these for me?


    I had some tea. = Simple past
    I would have some tea.= Past of “will” (I will have some tea)
    I will have some tea. =Simple Future
    What did we have? is correct, but “What we had?“, is not correct!
    Hope that helps! Good luck! Thanks for watching!

You keep on repeating the word English, sadly most of your words are not what English people would teach or say. if fact it is true to say that it is American English, not English as it is spoken, and it is not ‘ weird” how British people speak, it is the right way and it should be the only way to teach, because as an English teacher myself i have to correct my students time and time again because they have learned English from a lazy and ignorant teacher, please do not (don’t) get me wrong, i am not saying that you do a good job bur if you are going to teach English then please use the correct English, because it is(it’s) a bad reflection on British teachers who spend an eternity correcting foreign students how it is actually spoken. I find it rather annoying that you are to lazy to correct yourself in this way and expect your students to be just as lazy as yourself. Do not (don’t) blame the Queens English for being spoken as it should be when you are either to ignorant or just plain lazy to do so. I hope that you read this comment that i have written so that it may help others who actually pay to learn out native tongue.

thank you (thank’s)




    That means I’m laughing at you in “American” ” English”.
    I guess they don’t teach you how to write a proper sentence in the bloody Queen’s English, only how to be a twat!

    Dear Kelly,
    Because of teachers like you (super competent but also super arrogant and intolerant), the persons like me (the poor wretches that we are!) ended up being disgusted and annoyed by the “classic” English lessons. Please note that most of the persons I know have STUDIED english (and not american English!!) at school for many years with some teatchers like you and have really LEARNT english with some teatchers like Ronnie. Please note that a language changes and progress so before criticize maybe you’d open your mind and be more pleasant. Surely the British Queens speak English and not American but surely she’s got good manners and is POLITE. Keep smiling…

    I have CAREFULLY and CONSCIOUSLY gone through your wise,valuable suggestions..It turned out to be the most disgusting,boring,irritating,annoying article which I have ever read in my life..Do you know what is the actual problem of some scum like you-I firmly believe you do not..You people always try to make everything complicated and too tough so that no one can absorb the ideas and grasp the knowldge from something which is actually very simple-We get confused,messed up,demotivated,frustrated during the learning period because of some bch…. like you.You people create problems for us-i am specifically proud of getting teachers like Ronnie and others-They are my inspiration,idle,friend-philosopher-guide and nothing less than GOD-They are really doing a great and noble job here-So you please let them go on.. if you don’t like them,are not satisfied and if you think they are illiterate,uneducated people then you please leave from here-This place is not suitable for you and do some research on English and if you don’t have anything to do else finding out others mistakes then buy a bottle of poision and drink it up sparing us…It’s my heartiest request to you-because we don’t want people like you here….Don’t mind and keep smiling..

    1.Ronnie is great teacher!
    2. I don’t think you are a teacher!you can not write properly. I is always (I) no (i)..You can not be a teacher…sorry and if you don’t like this web you should not be here! Ronnie is the best!


She ______ a dog.

* has
* have
* is having

Why not She is having a dog?

Bit confused.

Profile photo of nazeerbabu nazeerbabu

    because having is plural?

    Profile photo of nazeerbabu nazeerbabu

      She has a dog. (Simple present tense, means she own a dog)
      She is having a dog. (Present continuous tense, means at the time of speaking, she is with a dog).


    having a dog

Thanks.I’ve been in need a good explanation like this.You are adept at deliver information


hello teacher ronnie. please teach me/us about “had had” “has had” “have had” etc. iam confuse about this. thank you!


    Had + p.p (past participle) is the past perfect tense! Eg.. I had had a dog, then I had a cat. We usually use past perfect and the simple past together.
    Have/has + p.p is present perfect. He/she/it has + p.p. Eg..She has had a dog for 4 years.
    I/we/they have +p.p. Eg.. I have had a dog for 3 years.
    Hope that helps you!
    I will try to make a lesson on this for you!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

Extremely important foundational knowledge. ESL students really get confused with do/does/has/have and we teach them the first rule: Does and has with 3rd person singular and then tell them it is incorrect to say “Does she has?” So this lesson it great! Thanks

” i didnt had eaten it “”
” i had not eaten it ”
” i didnt had ate it”” so which one is correct and why ? pease reply i need to know that .


I want to know when I can use has,have,and had
Thank you


    Has and have are present tense.
    I/they/we/you + have. We have a class at 2pm.
    She/he/it + has. It has a ball.

    Had is past tense. You don’t have to change the verb with different subjects — they are all had!
    I/they/you/we/she/it/he = had. Eg. I had a headache last night.

Profile photo of hapkido hapkido

    I have met him is present perfect and used when there is no time indicator and/or based on life experience.
    I had met him is past perfect and used when we talk about an action in the past that is no longer true today.

other than these videos, what else do u teach Ronnie? I want to suggest u can teach me more on verbs deeply.tq hope to see ur reply.

Constance Chee

Hi Ronnie,
I’ve got a question for you to answer.
When teachers check homework, do you think it’s better to ask: Did you do your homework for today or Have you done your homework for today? – Did you bring your English book or Have you brought your English book?
And what about students? Is it better: I forgot my homework/booketc. or I’ve forgotten my homework/book, etc.?
Old Walt Whitman thnaks you a lot.


    Hey Old Walt Whitman!
    It is better to use simple past because you are using the time marker of “today”.
    However, it is not wrong to use present perfect, it just seems more natural for me to use simple past!

md imran

    Have/has to are obligations = I have to go to the movies.She has to eat her dinner.
    Have been= present perfect.www.engvid.com/past-simple-or-present-perfect/

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie


i want learn all tens

md imran

Hi Ronnie, How are you doing? I love your videos and all the videos are useful and informative. I have a slight confusion with “am/is” against “has/have” usage. Examples
1) It is done/It has done/ It has been done
2) Is he come/ Has he come?

Similary with “do” against “are”, Examples
1) Do you agree?/ Are you agree? (In my opinion, it is wrong usage)
2) Are you ready? / Do you ready?

Can you please clarify when to use what from the above examples?

Please clarify my queries here or make a new video if it is really difficult to explain over here.. :-)


Profile photo of subusan subusan

    It is done – is simple present tense.
    It has been done is present perfect.
    When you use “is”, it is present tense. Have/has + past participle is past tense (present perfect)!
    He has come = present perfect. He is come is wrong – you are correct! Good work!
    When the following word is a verb (agree) you have to use “do”
    If the following word is an adjective (ready) you have to use “to be”.

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

Hi Ronnie,
Thanks for your prompt reply. I understood the concept now but I still have confusions with question formations using “Do”, “Will”, “Have” etc. For example:
Do you come? (present)
Will you come? (future)
Have you come? / Did you come? (past)
I think “Have you come?” is incorrect…

Similarly question formations using shall/will/should/would/could/has/had etc.

I would request you to make a video (ofcourse whenever you get a free time) regarding question formations..

thank you / Merci – your second language in canada :-)

Hi,love the way you teach us;you guys are very nice,love you very much sweet people,I thing only reason behind American and Canadian development is that you people are very honest,love you ma’am.

Here I have a question.
I studied the rule that with singular and third person pronoun we should use “has” like he has or she has.
But while offering a seat a single person why we don’t say him”has a seat please.”
why we also say him have a seat?
please mail me the answer.

I love to know everything

    We say “have a seat`, because we are talking about the seat (which is singular) – not the person!

yadwinder singh

The teaching was really good and helpfull, I have few qestions

_____ Julia and Sam got any money?
Answer should be
“Have”, since it denotes more than a person. I am correct?

The same should be for the below sentence
My daughters_____two dogs. It should be “Have”, because daughters is plural.


    Yes, your answers are both correct! Great work!
    #1 would be more natural to ask “Do Julia and Sam have any money?”, but your answer is correct too!

hi Ronnie can I say I had not homework yesterday

Profile photo of dani187 dani187

    Yes, you can say that but it is more natural to say “I didn’t have homework yesterday!”

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

hi again, you didn’t mention “it” and “you” in the explanation- how do we reffer to them?

and i also didn’t understood why do we say “he doesn’t have” and not “he doesn’t has”

and just like it- in the past why don’t we say “he didn’t had”
thank you a lot!!


    It + has.
    You + have.
    We change the auxiliary verb DO to DOES with he/she/it, so we do not need to change the next verb. In the sentence “He doesn’t have”, only the DOES reflects the subject!

i have sent a letter yesterday

i sent a letter yesterday….which are the correct answer

    Has because food is uncountable!

I excited very much while I watched this video lesson. I afraid you are arrested by police. Finally everything is good. You saved yourself again ;)

Thanks you. So just to make sure my understanding is correct, we would use have whenever it is plural or 1st person or 2nd person, and we use has whenever it is singular or if it is uncountable? please clarify this.


    I/you/they(including plural nouns)/we = have
    He/she/it(including singular and uncountable nouns)= has.

Hello. I think the last quiz has 2 answers.. “I____ two eyes”. Why “have” is correct,but “had” is false??


    If you say “I had two eyes” it means you had two eyes in the past, but don’t any more. So it might be correct if you happen to have lost an eye in an accident or something…

Quick question Ronnie: Am I right saying the following? “I have had eaten my breakfast before going to the office last Monday.” Thanks!


    Almost – but you have to say….I had eaten my breakfast before going to the office last Monday.”
    Past perfect = had + past participle. (you had 2 past participles)

Hello is me again.. i have questions to ask ..

Is ‘my wallet is stolen’ or ‘my wallet had been stolen’ or ‘my wallet was stolen’ ? what is the difference?

Thank you for your reply. I appreciate you effort:]


    is = present tense. We wouldn’t use this to talk about this situation.
    was = past tense. This is the most natural way to say this.
    had been = past perfect. We would only use this to tell a story where 2 actions occurred. EX. I was going to buy some fruit but then I realized that my wallet had been stolen.

Thanks for all your lessons;you’re a stunning teacher and I would like to teach as well as you do!….BRAVO!


How do you explain to a non-english speaker what “have” means and when you use have, has, or had?


Hi Ronnie,
How come, you didn’t talk about the
pronoun IT.I beleive we can say,it(the table) has four legs.Also we can say: I haven’t, I hadn’t,he/she/it hasn’t.
Would you pleas correct me!


    I am afraid of it.
    It = has/hasn’t…you are correct!

thank you, you are very simple and clear in your teaching for English


hiiii ronnie. g.evening. iwant to know that.what is English meaning of gonna and how to make gonna sentence. please sent me some .


thanks Ronnie. for sending me. you are so nice. ok i am going to open it.


What is the basic rule for using the words had, have, and has?


hello. im just wondering. when do we use has have had… can we use it always before the verb? such us emigrate, be, sing, notice, tell,… why we use have if even without have is ok… help me


    If use use have/has + p.p it is present perfect
    Had + p.p = past perfect!

thanks i take u r lesson ….it was so nice ….
plz help me to understand basic english grammer


Good job Ronnie. Your tutorial makes a difference because you taught changes with the modern English

I had a good lesson :)

Profile photo of mtalwar18 mtalwar18

One thing I would like to share with you is to make sure I am on the right track:-
Has-used for singular nouns (He, She and It)
Have-used for plural nouns (I, We, They and You)
HAD is the past tense of HAVE
if negative HAD then, all sentences will be didn’t have (irrespective of singular and plural nouns)

If I am right, then I think I making a good move towards learning English.

Comments are appreciated.
Thnx :)

Found statements that says- I have had my dinner??

Please explain this situation.

mam kindly illustrate this sentence little bit confusing to me “I had had a dog”


Its really nice madam. you are doing a great service for non-native speakers like us.God would bless you always.

mam my question is how to use has\ have\had been in passive voice.

thank you so much for answering me.


Hi teacher Ronnie,
i’m from malaysia, chinese people.
i’m still don’t know how to use /HAD/HAS/HAVE/ which one is past tense ?


    Had = past.
    Have/has = present.

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      Thank for your reply ^——^
      1] He and She must to use Has/does?it never change?
      2] When we must to use Had? please give some example.


        1) he/she/it use has and does – yes, this never changes in the present tense!
        2) Had = past tense. She/he/you/I/they/we + had some apples.
        I had a cold but now it is gone.
        Watch the video again and YOU give ME examples.

imran khan

Thankyou! the lesson is simple but great! thanks a lot


It is very useful for all of us, please keep posting.. Thanks
and also please tell us about vocabulary too thanks :))
Good Luck


Hi Ronnie, how are you going ?
What can you about me ? Well, I can understand writing and even listen you teaching on video. However,I cannot write well! What should I do? I’m from Brazil and I love your teaching.Of course which this writing has a lot of errors, but it was what I could do without use the translator. Thanks.


    To practice writing, you should write a short diary entry daily. OR just try to write without a translator and see how you do! Translators make us lazy. You are fortunate because a lot of the vocabulary is similar in Portuguese and English!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

And Ronnie, ohh look me here again….
I’ve a question. Should I use;
I hadn’t or I didn’t have ?
Ex: I’d not a car. I did not have a car.
And sorry me, but I’ve another question ? May I ask ? oh, in fact, I just ask a question.
What should I use ?
I don’t have or I haven’t ?
Ex; I don’t have a book.
I haven’t a book.
Thanks !!!


    “Didn’t have” is what I would say, but “hadn’t is also 100% correct. I think hadn’t is old British English. If you are speaking to an old British person, they might say “hadn’t”. Most people use didn’t have!
    Again, I would say ” I don’t have a book”. I haven’t a book is old English!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

What ´s the difference betweeen :
Did you tell.. or
Have you told..
When we use did and when have!!


    Did you tell = simple past. We use this with a time marker. Ex. Did you tell him yesterday.
    Have you told = present perfect. We use this without a definite time marker. Ex. Have you told him. (We don’t know when)!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

Do I say, for example : ” Why does everything (have) to be about you? ” or do I say : ” Why does everything (has) to be about you? ”
Your help would be greatly appreciated :)



    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

Thank you RONNIE :)
Could you please explain why we used (have) ?? :) :) PLEASE


Hey Ronnie! Filipino here! I forgot this, while I’m in vacation… Now, I’m writing a story. And I have a lot of questions to my mom if my grammar is right, but she’s always irritated. So I searched in youtube about this lesson. So thank you for sharing your knowledge to us…

Cecille Anne

tank you teacher ronnie you are really a good teacher,has,had and have are very useful,I would like to ask you were I should use have been .

hi ronnie… do you already have a video of how and when to use “SOMEBODY, SOMEONE, EVERYBODY, EVERYONE”?if you don’t, can you please make one for me? coz i find it very difficult… (is my grammar right?) oh ronnie, please help me….

hii ronnie. i want to know that. how to make this sentance. mai bick banwa rha hu.cousitive verbs ques.please send me


    ????? I have no idea what you mean.

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

hey ronnie how r you? i have an other question for u.my question is that in thz video u taught us that if we want to make negative sentence so we write like this she doesn’t has or they don’t have but i learned in negative sentence we use hasn’t nd write like she hasn’t eaten mango or i haven’t eaten mango so would u pls explain???


    In the past tense we say did/didn’t, present tense does/doesn’t. You can use hasn’t/haven’t but it is very old fashioned- we don’t use them now (but they are correct).
    However, if you use present perfect as you did in your example “hasn’t eaten mango or i haven’t eaten mango”, you MUST use have/has + p.p.
    You have written 2 different grammar tenses – that is why you are confused!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

Sorry,where is SUBJECT “YOU” ?


thank you so much! nd it means that we do not use has/hasn’t and have/haven’t now… nd if we want to use it we have to write p.p with them right….


You make it easy for everyone to understand.tnx


very nice, My Miss Ronni , keep the tune up in the same momentum.

we need your more lesson to become a good English speaker.

Hello madam,
what’s the difference between have,has,had in perfect tense and as means of possession.I am so confused about this usage.

S.Sameena Anjum

    Have/has + p.p is present perfect.
    Had + p.p is past perfect.
    Have/has + base verb is to show possession in the present tense.
    Had + base verb is the past tense to show possession!

Thank you for your great lessons. What confusing me now the difference in meaning between
ex. He doesn’t have and
He hasn’t

maya b.

Hi Mam

What it is the deference for the following words

I have no
I don’t have
He has no
He doesn’t have
It has no
It doesn’t have

I really want to know the difference.

I am awaiting for your reply


    Have/has no/not and do/does not are the same!!!
    The only thing is that we usually use do/does not! Have/has no/not is old school English! To speak more naturally, use do/does not!

How have you been , what is the different between I have been and I was . I know (was)in the past but what does have been mean and when should I use it .like , I have been in a natural disaster. why doesnt say I was in a natural disaster .thanks alot.


    Have been is present perfect. We use present perfect for past events that were very special or exciting and that may only happen once in our lives!
    Was is simple past. We use simple past for basic, daily routine events.

Hi Ronnie, how are you doing?

After reading a lot of comments about your lesson I’ve a little question which was already aswered. it’s about the sentence I DO HAVE.

let me further explain.

When I talk with people from USA I’ve noticed that when they want to emphasize something they use the sentence that I described above.

i.e we were talking about some technical document then I asked.. do you have further information?…and the answer was, yes I do have…

Hi Ronnie, I have a question.
please check the grammar.
1)Flights have started?
2)The requirements have been given?

If we have more objects we use have like for flights we have more than one flight so we use have, is it right?
Same as with requirements as it is plural.

Hi Ronnie!!!
It was a very useful one, where people often make mistakes.

I have a question. when do you use 2 had in the same sentence and what does it mean?
for example, they say, “I had had food”. what does it mean?

Hi Ronnie

I hope you can help me. My question is about : BEEN !
I am very confused bout it.

If now someone says; this lesson has been thought up by Mr. E. Why do i have to use ”the” been? Couldn’t i say ; this lesson has thought up …?, cause i also say i’ve broken my leg and not i’ve been broken my leg, right? Generally i do not get why it is not: this lesson was thought up by Mr. E.

I just undersand in one way, where to use the been, it’s : Have you ever been there or i’ve been there…

I got the mister E sentence form video from James (passive)

I thank you very much.
