Thank you for the grammar lesson. There is no doubt you are a great teacher.

Thanks allot Madam it was really a great lesson and useful for me ..


thank yuo

ana pacasi

Thank you Rebecca.I am glad to learn English grammar. I liked the way of your teaching. keep up good works. I have question related to this tense. What is the difference between “have married” and “have been married”? Thank you again. Ta ta.


    Thanks. When you say, “He has married Mary.” it means that the event took place relatively recently and you are informing me who he married or that they married. When you say “He has been married for seven years.’ or “He has been married very happily to Mary for seven years.”, you are making some kind of observation about their marriage, their married life, over the length of time that they have been married. The second ones emphasizes the length of the marriage, the first one emphasizes the recent nature of the event.

    Hope that helps. All the best with your English!

    ricardo alessandro

    Actually, I took your advice and recorded a lesson on that subject for you and for all our other viewers. You should see it soon. Thanks for the suggestion, Ricardo.

    Corrections: clear as a bell, an explanation on how to use ….correctly.

    In the meantime, please refer to a good grammar book such as Grammar in Use by Raymond Murphy, for an idea of how to use these words. All the best, Ricardo.

Great lession


dear mrs rebecca,thanks a lot ur lesson.but here i still confuse with the word “been”. i means i donno when i should use this word.mybe mrs rebecca can give me a hand to it..

Profile photo of gg gg

    Been is the past participle of the verb to be. We use it in the perfect tenses. For example:

    I have been to Europe many times.
    (Present Perfect)
    I have been feeling unwell all day.
    (Present Perfect Continuous)

    All the best to you.

thank you

jeyaranjan nagamuthu

Could you please explain the difference between “Therefore”, “Hence” and “Thus”?
I asked a few people around about that but didn’t get right answer.


    All three words you have asked about have the same basic meaning and are used in more or less the same way to show the effect of something. “Therefore” is used most often. The other two are slightly more formal and academic.


    I did not get high marks in the TOEFL exam. Therefore, I cannot join university this year.

    In the example above, you could use “hence” or “thus” as well, but “hence would sound more formal, and “thus” you might see more in academic writing, rather than in conversation.

    Hope that helps you! All the best, William.

learn lesson and give examples……. i think its a good way to improve ourselfs….


please take a lesson about difference about home and house


    Thanks for the idea.

    In short, a house is an objective word to describe the physical place where you live.

    The word “home” is more of a subjective word to describe the place where you live, which you consider special and meaningful, which may be where your family lives, or where you share a lot of love and good times. This place is a home, and more than just a house.

    My best to you, Mohana.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

      house miens the building only; may be my home or not. But a home is a place where I live. every home is a house, but not every house is a home.

      Aamer Ghaleb

ur lessons are good mam.
please correct the following sentence
malathi says”iam the best of myself”.is this sentence a correct one


    Technically, it is correct. It does sound quite philosophical though. I’m not sure if that is the intention.

    All the best to you, Mohana.

kindly please give a reply to my questions mam


Thank you Teacher!


when should i use since in the middle ,,,for example /has since bought
thanks for your answers


    “She has since left the company.”

    This means she has left the company since the time you are talking about.

    A rare use of the word since, but possible.

    My best to you, Petro.

thxs for the good job.why can you say “the sun has been shining since last week?`´
last week is a duration of time and not a point in time.


    I think the sentece is correct.”the sun has been shining since last week.”

    You can use “for” in this form.” the sun has been shining for two weeks.”

    The word “last” in your sentence is a definite point in time.. i’m not really sure in my analizes, i’m hoping, our teacher rebecca could help us.


      sorry… my speeling of is wrong (analizes)=analysis


      In answer to your question, Zuzu, even if you say “since last week”, you still mean from a certain point when last week began, right? That is why you can say since last week.

      You could also say, “The sun has been shining for two weeks.’ as Joel rightly suggested.

      Thanks for the question, Zuzu and thanks for your help, Joel. My best to both of you.

Dear Rebecca,
Thank you so much. You are a good teacher and very kind to all of us who want to learn English.Can you please give me an idea how to use the words “either and neither”. Sorry for the inconvenience. God bless you.


    You could say:

    I can have either tea or coffee. It doesn’t matter.

    I’d like neither tea nor coffee. I’ll just have a glass of water, please.

    “Either…or” is used when you are talking about two positive choices.

    “Neither…nor” is used to indicate two negative choices. It is used to say, not this and not that.

    Hope this helps, RSagum. My best to you.

hi Rebecca,
i’m sandeep and belong to india.well nice to meet you on this incredible side. it’s realy intresting to learn from your videos .i would like to know two quiz ..what’s the distiguish between associated and belong besides occured and happend.could you tell me clearly .i’m very thankful to you .!!!!


    Namaste, Sandeep.

    “Occurred” and “happened” mean the same thing, though the word “occurred” is slightly more formal and the word “happened” is more commonly used for everyday events, good or bad.

    In conversation, for example, if your friend looks sad, you might ask him, “Hey, what happened?”

    If you are associated with someone or something, it means you have a connection of some kind with them.

    if you belong to something, you are a member of a group or community or club.

    Example: I belong to that country club.

    So you cannot actually say that you belong to India, but you could simply say that you are from India.

    All the best to you, Sandeep.

Hello, Rebecca! Thank you for your lessons. I have a question: Can we use Past indefinite with “since” and “for” when it’s not related to the present anymore. For example: He lived in Canada (sometime) but he doesn’t live there anymore… Can we say “He lived in Canada for 5 years but then he moved away.”?
The second question: What’s the difference if I say “I’ve lived in Paris for 7 years” or “I’ve been living in Paris for 7 years”
Thank you very much

Thanks Rebecca, I have been listening your lecture for few days. I like your approach of teaching. I am from Bangladesh. I would like to improve my English. Since English is not our native language- so, it is very difficult to us to listen your lecture if you speak quickly. But your accent is clear and slowly what is very beneficial for us. I understand all of your words. Thanks, please keep it up. Please suggest me how can I improve my English.

    sure you can.For example:
    I have been waiting for the bus for two hours

I realy understand the propositions like for and since thank my teacher


You are a fabulous teacher. You’re methods are extremely clear. This site has really helped me with planning microteaching for interviews. Thank you so much.


hi Rebecca ,
can u tell me is this sentence correct or not,here is the sentence.!There are some people in the world who doesn’t take care about their relationships ?? or i should use don’t instead of doesn’t please help me i’ll be very glad to know :)


    Hi there Susan, may I answer your question? You should use “don’t” which is a plural verb because you used people (plural subject)and also you should use “of their relationships” instead of “about their relationships”

    or you can reconstruct your sentence this way:
    “There are some people in the world who don’t
    value relationships.”


Hello Ms. Rebecca! I’m currently studying for the IELTS exam, and I find all of your tutorial videos very informative, thank you so much for the lessons. More power to you and the rest of the teachers, and may God bless you all.

Rebecca, this is really the most useful lesson of all lessons, at least for me. I would just like to ask you why do we say, for example, John has moved to Canada since 2005, and in other example we say John has been married since 2008. My question is why don’t we say John has married since 2008? And else why we say John has been a student for 10 years, that means he is still student or? Please, respond me and clarify this confusion.


Thanks alot Mrs.Rebecca for your efford but I want you to sow me how to get high marks in IELTS exam ,if you don’t mind?


thanks I am 100% clear about it now.

Hi mam,
Can v use since like “I have read English since I was a young boy”
please explain.


Dear Rebecca:
Can you explain to me what is different between present perfect and present perfect continuous? I am not asking about the form, but I am asking when I have to use them.

Hello, teacher Robecca,

What’s the difference between ‘for’ and ‘since’ when they both mean ‘because’?


I have been listening your lessons for one year and want to thanks you for that. I have been learning English almost 5 years but still have problems of speaking and writing. I do it myself and try to inprove my English. Your lessons help me to understand many confusing moments in English,for example:Present Perfect and Present Perfect Continuous.These tenses have some general feature which I can not grasp…


HI Robecca,

Thank you so much for your lession.
i really like this sessions. Please give some more examples , this is for my himble request and again thanks for your teaching .

Hi Rebecca, Thank you for such a wonderful work. I just want to give a small suggestion, if engvid can also add a written lesson of what you are teaching I think it would be great, so while listening we can read it also and can better understand the lesson. Thanks a lot. Best wishes. Regards.


Many thanks rebeca for this lesson!


I’m really inspired with your writing abilities as smartly as with the format on your weblog. Is this a paid subject or did you customize it yourself? Either way stay up the nice high quality writing, it’s rare to peer a nice blog like this one these days..

i was wondering if you could help me please with the following; I don’t know where I can find a grammar lesson related with neither & nor and either & or.


Thanks a lot


Hello Mam,
First of all thank for this great website and being a excellent resource for self learners.
My doubt is with reference using “ing with verb” with since or for.
Example – currently I am running a business. If I want to say to my client that I am running this biz from so an so….
Can I say “I have been running this business since 3 years.” Or “I have been ran this business since 3 years.”

Thank you for your support

    If I’m not mistaken…First sentence it’s Present Perfect ,the second sentence it’s Present Perfect Continuous.
    Perfect – indicates actions which ended to a specific point or occurring before other actions in the present, past or future time.
    Perfect Continuous – indicates actions that began and lasted for some time until a certain point in the present, past or future time.

Madame! In the 5th question of this quiz there is written: “Mr and Mrs Johnson” with no points (periods) after “Mr” and “Mrs”. Is it correct (ok) or it is mistake? In other words do we have to spell points after “Mr”, “Mrs” etc. every time? Thank you a lot for paying attention to my question.

    In British English, there’s no period. In North American English, there is. I’m not sure about how other countries do it…

I have one question. I often find sentences used present perfect tense that didn’t mention time. Ex.” I have been studying in the university.”. Is this correct? I just presuming that it is

Sorry, my message was incomplete.
I’m just presuming that it is obvious, and the listener will understand that you are studying until now, without minding when did you start to enter into University.
