          What is wrong with making A lesson by more than one teacher? For example all of teachers can have a lessons about “Preposition of Place”. I think it’s more useful. :)

    Try to immerse yourself in English. Sing, read, write, speak, listen, dance…in English. Keeping a short daily diary in English can also help. First, just write about simple activities that filled your day. Later, add more details about people, places, emotions and so on. Of course, it’s best if someone can check your diary and correct any recurring errors.
    I have seen many students make great progress and I’m sure you can do it too.

hi how are you im from venezuela im taking a english course now im in the beginner level, so understand the english very well if the person that is talking speak slow, but sometimes i feel bad because when i watch the news in the british channel they speak very fast and i think that im bad learning the languaje….what do you think about?

jonathan

    Don’t worry.

    When you’re starting out, it’s perfectly normal to experience difficulty understanding those who speak quickly. This happens to everyone. It’s simply a matter of practice and attuning your ear to the language and the accents.

    As a beginner, you’re unfamiliar with the vocabulary, expressions and idioms used by native English speakers. You’re also unaccustomed to the accents. As you strengthen your language skills, you will be able to understand more and more.

    Just take it one step at a time, and gradually you will be able to cope more effectively. So don’t worry, you’re not bad at learning English, you’re just going through the normal stages that every language learner goes through. Stay positive and you’ll make good progress.

    I suggest you join English language classes in your country or in an English-speaking country right away so that you can start learning all the necessary skills for communicating correctly and effectively in English. University-level English is quite advanced, so the sooner you get started, the better. All the best to you!

Hi Rebecca!

I’m enjoying your teaching..yesterday I watched the lecture on “present tense”.It’s really good,but after this lecture I’m expecting the lecture on “present progressive tense”.
So where should I get the lectures video on topic “Tenses” ..

Hello, Rebecca, it’s me again. There is no space in “Polite English” so I want to say “Thank you”.

McDonald’s says: “I’m loving it.” It should be incorrect because you’ve written that it’s a stative verb and I cannot use it in progressive aspect. But I heard many people say that it is right. Where’s the trick?

Where can I use stative verbs in continuous’ tenses? Is it possible?

Thank you for your answering.

Profile photo of Jakub1 Jakub1

    Yes, the phrase ” I’m loving it.” is incorrect grammatically.

    However, it has become a kind of slang expression so you may use it informally, but not in formal or academic contexts.

    There is a list in most good grammar books of the few stative verbs which you can use in a continuous context. It does take some time to understand the difference, especially when there is so much slang being used in movies and online.

    Keep going, and you’ll get it. My best to you.

Hi Miss Rebecca, I’m having a little problem with my listening skills, like some people had expressed here, it is very difficult to me to understand british people, is there any way to improve the listening skills in order to get what they say? is it difficult for you to understand the way they speak? sometimes I think about british people like spanish people (people from spain) sometimes I don’t understand what they say and I speak spanish since I was 3 or 4 years old, does that happen to you with british people?(or people from other coutries like Australia)

I was living in Toronto (I love that city, is beautiful and full of nice people) and most of the times I didin’t have any problem understanding Canadians, words like “advertisment” are pronounced different by british people, could that be part of my problem?

Lately I’ve been watching some movies with british actors, like “Alfie” and “shaun of the dead”, when I watch your videos I don’t have any problem understanding what you say, but when it comes to understand dialogues in movies…mmm…big problem…plus, I’ve never taken english classes, this is the first time I do it, I’m attending school in order to learn much better, I know I make many grammar mistakes yet, that’s why I’m watching all your videos, which I find really illustrative, like you said before, there is many slang in movies, that makes it tougher because british, american and canadian slang are way different.

I’m concerned about my level, I would like to be an english teacher but I think I don’t have enough knowledge, I read yesterday that in order to be a teacher it is necessary to take the TKT and with an upper intermediate level is enough, I took a test one month ago and they had set me in the b2 level, I don’t understand why they always set me in an upper intermediate or advanced level, I know I make many grammar mistakes, is that right? what testers consider in order to decide which level people go? how can I know when I’m ready to be a teacher?is it normal that I don’t understand british people even having that “so called” upper intermediate or advanced level? thank you very much for your time. Kind regards.

hey rebecca..
you are just great and your lectures are really really helpful.
what i want to know is,in a quiz there was a sentence that WE ALWAYS GO FOR A WALK AFTER DINNER.UNLESS IT’S RAINING.
I’m actually confused about UNLESS IT’S RAINING.
Although my teacher told me present continous doesn’t fall by unless..
i mean we are supposed to use simple tenses like unless it rains..
please help me out,i’d be really greatful to you..

Hello, Rebecca!
Nice to meet you :) Your classes are great. I live in Russia and am a translator/interpreter Eng-Rus, Rus-Eng. You know, employers want to get a person who has huge work experience as translator/interpreter and I have only the September internship. This year I’ve graduated the Southern Federal University. I don’t work as tranlator nowadays because of my little experience of being translator but I can use my skills :) I’m a tutor of English and interpret your classes to my pupils who want to learn this language. And this is a way to keep my English and the skills I’ve got at the University.
Thanks a lot, Rebecca. Your speech is pretty clear and distinct. If I only had the opportunity to study lingvistics abroad… but first of all, I should prepare for TOEFL and get the Fulbright’s grant.
Ok! I wish you luck!
BTW, I hardly see the words on the blackboard because of the light. But I can hear you and that’s awesome.

Hi! Rebecca you’re great teacher, I enjoy your classes and I learn a lot. Thanks. I have a question about question 2: Why is “I’m working” and no “I work”. Right now _____ as a waiter in a Chinese restaurant, just to earn some extra money, until school starts again in the fall. If you ask me are you work as is… I think my answer has to be I work as… instead If you ask me “Are you working at the chinese restaurant…? I am not clear why?

Rebecca, please give your comment on this excerpt from Advanced Grammar in Use by Martin Hewings. His book says that we use the present continuous or the present simple to describe something that we regularly do at a PARTICULAR time. Then he invites us to compare:
We usually WATCH the news on TV at 9.00 (= we start watching at 9.00)
We’RE usually WATCHING the news on TV at 9.00 (= we’re already watching at 9.00)

Thanks for your video

But can you explain me. Why Oh, I’m sorry. I thought you knew. Allan had an accident last week and _____ in the hospital.
is still recovering
still recovers
still recovering
still recover

is still recovering, why with is ???

Thank you for your help.
best regards
Maria

Maria

Now that I found an answer to my own question, I can help you, Maria, understand the use of Present Continuous. The point is that Allan has not recovered COMPLETELY. He seems to need more time to get well again because he must’ve been badly injured, so he can’t walk so far or act in a normal way. The situation is TEMPORARY, that’s why he is still recovering (he’s still in hospital and has not been discharged yet). “IS” is used here to FORM the proper TENSE, which is made up of the verb “to BE” + V-ing.

I’m confuse because in the last example that u gave, you said “I like ice cream” and that is the affirmative form then with the negative you said “I don’t like ice cream” but with the question you said ” Do you like ice cream?” Why you use “You” and not “I” in making question with that sentence? Sorry my English is really bad. By the way thanks for the lessons I really like it and looking forward for more topics ;)
