        Wednesday, June 17th 2015

      I didn´t quite get the concept of stative verbs. They are not action verbs, this is quite clear. However, they cannot be used with the Verb To Be.

      But in practice, informal English makes extensive use of this language pattern. On second thought, I´m still thinking about it ( Verb To Be + Stative Verb).

      Bye for Now.

      Tuesday, October 7th 2014

    I love the way you teach! :P

Wednesday, August 24th 2011

What about the expression I’m seeing someone?? is it right??

Wednesday, August 24th 2011

    When we talk about dating yes, we say that! But it is slang/idiom.

    Thursday, August 25th 2011

      Dear Ronnie, if “hear” is stative verb why do we have “I look forward to hearing from you.” ?
      Please check this video :

      Saturday, May 7th 2016

Envied thank you for all lessons ! They are really make easy to learn English ) I’m happy)

Wednesday, August 24th 2011

Hi Ronnie.
What about the verb “listen”? Is it a stative verb too?

Thursday, August 25th 2011


    Thursday, August 25th 2011

      why not?listen was not an action right..

      Wednesday, October 19th 2011

        Listen is a verb.

        Wednesday, October 19th 2011

          I can’t understand yet. Listen is a verb. OK, but how about see, feel, smell?

          Saturday, September 8th 2012

          It is an action, but not a passive action, as I understand. When you are listening – it’s your active action (you listen because you need or want it). But when you hear something, you are not doing action for it, you just hear it.

          Friday, October 3rd 2014

Hi Ronnie, great lesson.

I have some question about verb, can i post it here? or any other channel that i can ask you about it?

hi Ronnie thank for ur lesson. i just wonder one thing that when u put ur hands up and hook ur fingers. what do that body language means?

Thursday, August 25th 2011

    It means that the person is using a “quote” (quote). It is used when you are being sarcastic!

    Thursday, August 25th 2011

hi! is this correct?:I’m feeling better…

Thursday, August 25th 2011


    Thursday, August 25th 2011

Hi Ronnie,

Tell us more about stative verb and exception on it.
Normally when we write something on computer it shows error on grammar mistake, but in this case
“She was not agreeing with us”
“I was appreciating the music”

it doesn’t show, why ?

      Ms.Ronnie, i wanna thank you a lot for the lesson
      but i feel so confused about these verbs.
      you said it’s worng to write them in progresive
      ok,i agree so far
      but in convrsation, is it okay? i don’t think so
      ‘i’m remembering that’ it doesn’t make sense, it looks pretty weird, no??

      Wednesday, August 12th 2015

Hi, Ronnie. Thanks for your lessons!
May I ask a question?

Is a phrase “I’m Lovin’ It” correct?
I’ve heard it in McDonald’s commercial some years ago.

Monday, October 31st 2011

    no, the sentence is wrong

    Sunday, May 19th 2013

Oh, sorry for comment.
I’ve found an answer in the video.

Monday, October 31st 2011

Hi! Ronnie

U’r lessons r awesone! and thanx so much.
Could “u” please explain Preposition “in” & “into”


Monday, October 31st 2011

I’m your fan.
by the way, what is mean “to be” ???

Sunday, November 6th 2011

thank you ur Exciting

Monday, November 7th 2011

It’s incredible new to me.Thanks for help.

Thursday, November 10th 2011

Hi Ronnie,thanks for your explanation, i got much knowledge after seeing your video. But im still little bit confused about some things:
Some people sometimes use “present continuous” form to express “future simple”, like this: i am seeing that later= i am going to see that later”. Is it correct to use that present continuous to express future simple both in spoken and written? and if it’s correct, is it only for any of verbs in that case, or for all verbs? I’m sorry if i ask too much, i really get confused of it. Thanks before

Saturday, November 12th 2011

tank you very much I really love your lessons and your way of teaching is efficient and funny i like it …just a question what about “I’m listening to the music” ?????

abdel morocco

Sunday, November 13th 2011

    You have to say “I am listening to music”. (not “the music”).

    Monday, November 14th 2011

i like it … :*

Tuesday, November 15th 2011

    A very interesting lesson indeed. Thanks

    Sunday, October 14th 2012

Ronnie, can we say I’m having a great day, or in the past I was having a great day???

Saturday, November 19th 2011

Hi there! Ronnie, please answer. Yesterday, I watched a movie called “She hate me”. Why “she hate”, not “she hates”??? Does it make any sense? Thank you in advance!

Monday, November 21st 2011

    Ronnie might be able to explain it better, but that’s a feature of African-American vernacular [everyday] English, a dialect that has its own rules. And in AAVE it’s okay to drop the ending for verbs in third person present tense.

    Monday, November 21st 2011

    She hate me is wrong, Movies/music/art has no rules – especially grammar rules!

    Tuesday, November 22nd 2011

I join this website today.I’m very happy. Your way of teaching is efficient and funny i like it .You are too good teacher.How can i improve my fluence in english.I’m very confused.Please……

hi ronnie,i enjoyed this lesson 100%. but i have a question. can’t we say, “i am having my lunch? , it smelling good? i am feeling quite well? n so on.. normally we say i am having my lunch. so is that wrong?

Sunday, November 27th 2011

Thank you
you’r fantastic teacher

Saturday, December 3rd 2011

you are very funny teacher

Sunday, December 4th 2011

Ms. Ronnie, It was really grate, and you explained very well.


Monday, December 5th 2011


I have a question on this “I’m loving” Ok this seems to be wrong, what about the continuity of the sentence, and “I’m Lovin” used by McDonnald. What is the sense behind to drive the continuous sentence. Please Explain.



Monday, December 5th 2011

    McDonalds is just WRONG! The sense behind continuous is that the action is occurring now and will still be true in the near future!

    Monday, December 5th 2011

Hi Ronnie, I have to talk about the clause “having” nowadays, people use for everything they relate with this clause. What should be the replacement. Please elaborate the situations to use it as “having.”



Monday, December 5th 2011

Wednesday, December 14th 2011

    Great! Thanks for watching!

    Monday, December 19th 2011

Hi, Ronnie, I have joined your classes recently, and I do like it so much.
Will you clarify, please if the below statement is correct:

think (stative) = have an opinion
I think that coffee is great
think (dynamic) = consider, have in my head
what are you thinking about? I’m thinking about my next holiday

Also, as regards “I am feeling better”, is this slang, or grammatically accepted?

Thank you in advance.

Thursday, December 22nd 2011

    I am feeling better is present continuous form!

    Tuesday, December 27th 2011

      Do you mean to say that “feel” can be used in Present Cont.?
      I just wanted to know if it is grammatically correct (not slang) to use the verb “feel” in Cont. form.

      Saturday, January 7th 2012

        Yes you can!

        Saturday, January 7th 2012

      And, will you please revert to other questions of mine, i.e. “think” like “opinion” and “consider”, and transitive/intransitive verbs.

      Saturday, January 7th 2012

I would be grateful to you should you explain transitive and intransitive verbs and which verbs namely can be used in two ways in Passive. I mean: I was given a book. And, The book was given to me.
I know there is a group of verbs in English that has only one form of Passive, like describe, translate, explain, dictate. Is there a full list of these verb, or is there a clear-cut rule on how to identify them?
Thank you very much.

Thursday, December 22nd 2011

Thank you

Wednesday, January 4th 2012

    Present contiuous is only to be +verbing. EX…I am writing.
    I remember that now = simple present~!

    Thursday, January 5th 2012

Friday, January 6th 2012

Thank you 2012 very much

Saturday, January 14th 2012

nice lesson ,I enjoyed it thnx my dear ronnie

Saturday, January 14th 2012

is happy stative verb ?

Tuesday, January 24th 2012

I don’t know – it is English grammar rules. I did not make them!!!!

Thursday, January 26th 2012

I think, have means ‘own’ or expresses possession, it is not used to in the progressive. But we can use ‘have and think’ in the progressive. For example, I’m having a good time. I am thinking about English grammar right now. (have a good time, have a bad time, have a problem, have company, have an operation), have can be used in the progressive. See, English is the most crazy language in the world. Good luck.

Saturday, January 28th 2012

Hi Ms.Ronnie.. thanks alot 4 the lesson .. i have a question but it’s not related to this lesson >>

1 – I drank much water
2 – I needed much suger to bake a cake

is that right ??

Thanks in advance

Thursday, February 2nd 2012

    NO. I drank a lot of beer.
    I needed a lot of sugar to bake a cake.

    Thursday, February 2nd 2012

      Ok. if we put (too) much >> for example:
      1 – I drank too much water
      2 – I needed too much suger to bake a cake

      is that right now?

      Thank you for your reply :)

      Friday, February 3rd 2012

        1- yes.
        2- no. Too much is always a negative thing. You can say the cake has too much sugar.

        Friday, February 3rd 2012

      Dear Ronnie
      Do you mean that we use :MUCH” only in negative and question?

      Monday, May 13th 2013

Hello Ronnie!!! I love this lesson and this website!!! You are an excellent teacher!!! Thanks!!!!

Saturday, February 4th 2012

Hi Ronnie!! if I say I’m in love (it will be correct or false?)

May you teach us about transitive and intransitive verbs,please?

Friday, February 17th 2012


Monday, February 20th 2012

help me please :(

Monday, March 5th 2012

Hello, Ronnie! Thank you for your brilliant lessons! It’s always interesting to watch them.
Is it right to say ‘He’s being rude these days’? He’s always rude, but he’s being rude these days. Is it correct?

Friday, March 9th 2012

We are still deciding? (thinking) Is it right?

Saturday, March 10th 2012

Dear Roni,
Could you please tell what differences between another and other?

Sunday, March 11th 2012

    Another = one more. EX. I’d like another beer = one more of the same kind.
    Other = something different. I’d like the other (kind of) beer= I want a different kind of beer.

    Wednesday, March 14th 2012

Hello, English Angel, Ronnie sister,
I love your teaching.

Saturday, March 24th 2012

Hi Ronnie, i’m sometime confuse when to use been or being in a sentence. Can you please make a video on that? Thanks

Wednesday, March 28th 2012

    Been is a past participle.
    Being is only used in continuous forms.

    Wednesday, March 28th 2012

I love your lesson. It help me alote

Monday, April 2nd 2012

hi Ilik lessen to you

Monday, April 2nd 2012

Hello Rannie you are the best teacher I believe you good morning.

Wednesday, April 4th 2012

how about ‘to be loved’? is it okay?

Saturday, April 21st 2012

    I have the same cuestion. Is Bob Marley song “could you be loved” right?

    Monday, May 7th 2012

Hi Ronnie, tnx for your great lessons.
But I’m a little bit confused! You have used “… you are being sarcastic”; however, you have already said that “be” is a stative verb!

Tuesday, May 8th 2012

Hi Rooine ,
To be hounset with you are the best english teacher i have ever see
thank you very much

Friday, June 1st 2012

Hi Rooine!I love your lessons,but I want to umprove speaking,what should I do?

Saturday, June 2nd 2012

i wish you could be my teacher

Tuesday, June 5th 2012

you are a good teacher Ronnie I like teache i like really your method

Thursday, June 21st 2012

Ronnie, you said that it’s wrong to say “I’m hearing”, cause to hear is a stative verb, what about ” I’m listening to music” This is correct, isn’t it ? So I assume that the verb to Listen is not a stative verb… ok? Thanks

Thursday, July 5th 2012

Excuse me Ronnie but I’m not sure about “sense” ! It might be: hear,see (sight), smell, taste (mouth) and touch (with fingers) instead of “sound”?! Don’t you agree with me?

Saturday, July 7th 2012

hi~~ I got a question! Why I find the example in the dictionary said “I am having difficulty…..”. Is it right or wrong??

Sunday, July 15th 2012

i love his energy in the video…

Sunday, July 29th 2012

Thanks ever such a lot Ronnie.

Monday, July 30th 2012

Friday, August 31st 2012

Hi Ronnie, thank you, your lessons are funny and interesting. Now is grammar for me clearer. I would like to have you as a teacher in my school. Have a nice day :) Edita from Czech Republic

Thursday, September 6th 2012

Hi:)I wanna ask you something but this isn´t exactly for this specific video.I have a truble with using nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs in sentences. I give you an example… felxible-flexibility…Are some rules for that? thank you:)

Sunday, September 9th 2012

    Adjectives usually end in -ly -y -ed -ing.
    Noun= person place or thing.
    Verb = action word.
    Adverbs usually end in -ly or -y.

    Wednesday, September 19th 2012

Ronnie i love you! thank you so much for your help! im learning so much from you everyday! could you make more videos please… :) thank you.

Friday, September 14th 2012


Sunday, September 16th 2012

Hi Ronnie,

How are things with you today? You know what, I really admire you for being an erudite teacher. I love the way you teach and the way you give examples. How I wish I can be like you too. I want to be a good English conversationalist and you know what..your teaching helps me a lot. I always watch your video and you are an inspiration to many people like me who want to learn English well.By the way, about this topic, I heard many people saying ‘what I’m thingking right now’ is this statement right? I don’t think so. Keep up the good work..

Your student
Nerfezap :)

Saturday, September 22nd 2012

    Yes, we use the statement “What I am thinking right now”. A lot of times we disregard grammar rules when we talk!

    Tuesday, September 25th 2012

i would like to share with your teaching to get good english because english is my most interesting thing

Wednesday, September 26th 2012

i feel some ways those i am weak for english so i want to solve it to be good speaker english

Wednesday, September 26th 2012

thanks for your lesson

Wednesday, September 26th 2012

I’m getting improve my knowledge here with engVid

Monday, October 8th 2012

thank ronnie I understood this lesson very well. I had a lot of doubt about it but now I´m really clear.

Wednesday, October 24th 2012

Thank you Ronnie, Excellent instructor!
You understand all around audition students as you say and explain to listen and learning English student’s not certain country or specific country people as stereo type. You are very understandable for all nationality people. That is very important to all around people because they have their own country and birth place, so they like of course. However, During students are learning and listening languages are sensitive sometimes. Especially, most teachers need to explain generously. You are a great instructor as your teach way and let the students.

Saturday, October 27th 2012

Thank you so much. I´m a Brazilian English teacher and was very difficult to explain this topic to studants, this video help me a lot.

Friday, November 2nd 2012

Hi Ronnie,
Thanks very much for your good work.
Could you please tell me the differences between these sentences?

– we are done vs we have done
– the first step is done vs the first step has done vs the first step has been done.

Again, thank you in advance!

Wednesday, November 14th 2012

We are done and the first step is done = present tense.
We have done and the first step has been done= present perfect.
The first step has done is WRONG.

Wednesday, November 14th 2012

I have a question. can we use “I’m understanding it now” if we want to say about situation which was changed. e.g. I never understood English grammar but I’m understanding it now. or I am understanding the text now that I have read it once more.

Sunday, December 2nd 2012

    You have to say I understand!

    Saturday, December 8th 2012

Hey Ronnie!

You even can not imagine how cool you really are! I adore the way you teach and the way you keep students’ attention by means of inexhaustible source of you positiveness and charisma! I can’t stop watching your videos that’s just awesome! That was is called real teaching!

Hello! I think, I don’t understand this lesson except feelings/emotions rule…
Can I say:
I have all hearing ears? I mean, that my ears hears everything.
Sorry for my grammar, I’m a beginner…

Thursday, October 17th 2013

    You totally can! To make it clearer, you can use a hyphen: “all-hearing ears”. There’s also a symbol called the “all-seeing eye”.

    Thursday, October 17th 2013

Thank you

Monday, December 9th 2013

Perfect. Thanks for help me. 100% :)

Wednesday, April 2nd 2014

great video, teacher Ronnie! I enjoyed it! The video is not tedious maybe because of your pleasing personality! I guess I need to share this video to my co-workers since we often use “to be” with stative verbs especially the expression,”I’m loving it!” I need to warn them that it’s grammatically incorrect though we can still use it during our usual conversation.

Best Regards.

Sunday, April 6th 2014

Thanks! Ronnie, very useful :)

Friday, April 18th 2014

Hi teacher! I still have something not really clear about stative verbs like “feel”. I found its meaning in the Oxford Dictionary and I saw an example like this: “Ruth was not quite feeling herself”. Is it true or obviously wrong to say that? Thank you! ^^
