      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.

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

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

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

Enqui

    No.

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      why not?listen was not an action right..

      Profile photo of jumat jumat

        Listen is a verb.

        Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

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

          Jefferson

          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.

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”

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

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!

Basil

    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.

Ronnie,

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.

Regards,

Sabih.

Sabihuddin

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

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.

Profile photo of shaga shaga

    I am feeling better is present continuous form!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      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.

      Profile photo of shaga shaga

        Yes you can!

        Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

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

      Profile photo of shaga shaga

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.

is happy stative verb ?

rajitha

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

Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

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.

1 – I drank much water

is that right ??

Thanks in advance

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

      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 :)

      noor

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

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

qasem

    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.

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

Profile photo of sonyt007 sonyt007

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

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

totskey ruiz

how about ‘to be loved’? is it okay?

アリフ

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

    Jose

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!

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

Profile photo of hungriaind1 hungriaind1

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?

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

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:)

Profile photo of fray419 fray419

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

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 :)

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

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.

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!

Profile photo of tienie tienie

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.

Hi,
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.

Adam

    You have to say I understand!

Hi Ronnie, is gramatically wright this sentence: “My sister is on holiday in Peru. She is loving it!” ???
I had English class today, I used simple present (she loves it), and my teacher corrected me. It’s a stative verb, I said. But it indicates an action in progress at the time of speaking, she replied. Now I’m really confused… can you help me, please?? Tks

    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”.

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.
