Helpful lesson. Thank you Rebecca.

yaoqian

    You’re right Yaoqian, this is helpful information for us to communicate more effectively.

    The examples on the video helped us to understand much better how to talk about changed plans.

    Excellent lesson Rebecca!

    Welcome to Canada! I wish you the best in your new life and am sure you will do well as you are taking responsibility for your own success by watching these English-learning videos! Whenever people take the initiative to improve their own lives, they can achieve more than they ever imagined. My best wishes to you!

    Rebecca

    You get a interesting nick name ‘yaoqian’.
    It has the same pronunciation as Chinese word ‘want money’

    hoboss

Thank You , Teacher Rebecca!

Luvillalva

Very nice lesson indeed. h

Briklend Handersson

dear Rebecca, could you or yours collegues plan a specific lesson about GET and GOT, especially GOT (past tense) with its several meanings?

mescal

    Here, I got it for you!

    https://www.engvid.com/english-vocabulary-get/

    We have a few other lessons which focus on various uses of get/ got /have got, etc. Just type what you’re looking for in the search bar in the top right corner, above the main video. All the best!

    Rebecca

Hi, Rebecca. Good to see you again. Thank you very much for your lecture.

ariunbolor

teacher Rebecca, I heard a song; “If I were a boy”
why the song used “were” instead “was”?

AlfredMz

    Hello Alfred,

    Very good question!

    Actually, in CONDITIONAL-type sentences containing “IF” (the sentence you have referred to) we normally use the “were” also for the singular, that is, with I/he/she/it/Peter/my sister etc.

    “If I were a boy” is NOT a real situation, but a conditional clause. Also, note that Rebecca’s examples are actually NOT conditional sentences.

    EXAMPLE:
    If I were you, I wouldn’t travel to that country now. There have been some riots recently.
    EXAMPLE:
    If I were/was there, I’d definitely give her a hug.

    In spoken (that is, not written) English you can use was/were as explained by Rebecca, however, avoid using “was” in “If I were”+pronoun phrases (If I were you, If I were he/him, etc.; he – formal, written, him – spoken). It is considered to be incorrect.

    Check out “Present Unreal Conditional” at this page for more info (most grammar books call this conditional “Second Conditional”)
    http://www.englishpage.com/conditional/conditionalintro.html

    Hope this is a bit more clear now.

    Regards,
    David

    David

      Thanks, David, for taking the time to help us out. All the best!

      Rebecca

    Oh. I think that is the structure of conditional sentence.Verb”to be” we must divided into “were”.

    Harry Benjamin

    As I know, when we use conditional sentence (if…), any subjects have to be used with “were”. Actually, saying “If I was a boy” is correct, but you should always use with “were”. I don’t know why but it’s just what I’ve learned :)) And it’s a very nice song of Queen Bee, too :))

    Sebert

I am happy I got 100!!

edilsonsozinho

Very important thank you very much

arguig

Hi, Rebecca! Thank you so much for your precious lesson!

Edinho

Thank you, Rebecca :)

Happy04

Hi Rebecca! Thanks a lot for your lessons. You speak very clearly and explain them very well. If possible, could you make a lesson explaining the difference between ‘revise’ and ‘review’? Thank you.

mimoraes

    Thanks for the lesson suggestion! Always happy to hear from another English teacher. All the best to you and your students in Brazil.

    Rebecca

Thanks Rebecca for this lesson!

karik44

    You have failed, bro. =)
    Look at here, that’s correctly: *your lesson was interesting and … bla-bla-bla

    Knightsudd

rebecca for I as a subject can we use “were” or “was”
after that?
for example: i was supposed to
or
i were supposed to?

vikralapavankumar

    It’s “I was supposed to” :)

    DaZun

    “I was supposed to” is the only correct option in your example. Please see David’s explanation above to understand when we can use “were” with “I”. All the best!

    Rebecca

Thank you, Rebecca ^^

Marwa Esmail

    Aww, that’s very kind and thoughtful of you. I took a break and listened to the pretty song, which I had not heard before. Thank you! Music is such a lovely way to relax and learn English at the same time. I am sure you will go far with your creative approach to life and your “can-do” attitude. My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

      It is my pleasure,I am so happy because of you.You are the best.

Hi Rebecca!
Very nice lesson and quiz, as usual. Thanks!!

Just a little humble idea:
Why not promote the Canadian’s wonders to the world (cities, Nature Parks, cultural sotries, etc. through your videos?

Foreigners (your viewers among others) could enjoy those wonders and learn English in an English Speaking country in the meantime!!
… and maybe you could even make an extra benefit from it, I mean from local governments or the national one, who knows!?

JJJR

    Hmmm! That’s a good idea, I’ll pass it on. I will add, however, that not all Canadian culture is in English! Many of our cultural treasures are from/in French Canada. And many English-language Canadian cultural institutions, like Hockey Night in Canada, are spreading to other languages as well.

Sahane

    Welcome to engvid, my friend. My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Thanks for your lesson. <3
what is the different between "I was supposed to called " and "I should call" and "I should have called"?Thanks a lot
Sonia

Miss Flapper

    1) I was supposed to call (note my correction)

    This sentence is talking about the past. It means you had a plan to call or had promised someone you would call, but you did not.

    2) I should call

    This sentence is about the future. You are reminding yourself or telling someone that it would be a good idea for you to call or it is necessary for you to call.

    3) I should have called.

    This sentence is about the past and is similar in meaning but a little stronger than sentence number one. Here, the person is evaluating the result of not having called and is wishing he / she had called.

    All the best!

    Rebecca

Thanks a lot! Very useful for me

Oleg1983

Thank you very much for your lesson

AlessandroItaly

I was supposed to feel upset about my dullness, but this lesson was surprisingly simple for me :)
Thank you, Rebecca and other.

dementor AK

    First, thanks for the feedback. Second, I find it more useful to focus briefly on where I am when learning something new, and focus a lot on the direction I am going. Sometimes we make progress slowly and sometimes quickly. What’s important is that we feel proud and happy to move forward, even a little bit every day. All the best!

    Rebecca

I was supposed to get 100%, but I failed LoL

Prince2M

    I always liked what the famous inventor Thomas Edison said,

    “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

    My best to you!

    Rebecca

      Thank you :) ^^

Thank you Rebecca I am lucky I got 10 correct out of 10. Your meterial online is very useful.

Ukrit

    I like what Thomas Jefferson said about luck:

    “I’m a greater believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it”

    My best wishes to you in creating your own luck!

    Rebecca

Hello Professor possible to communicate via email, I have need to you and I want to learn English language

noriroot

9/10 the truth is every time I make plans they fail. So I use that kind of expression often. “We were supposed to pass the vacations on the beach, but when we arrived a blizzard fell down. .??! ” Strange? Well what I intendant was use the expression, so …

Jorge Pedroso

    You are right. We are good, optimistic souls who make plans with great excitement….but sometimes time gets away from us! At such times, these expressions are useful. All the best, Jorge.

    Rebecca

These two structures are useful to talk about changed plans.This is a very helpful lesson and your explanation was crystal clear,same as usual ;-)Many thanks Rebecca.

TEJALKK

very helpful lesson. thank you teacher

Hello Rabecca
great for wonderful lesson,although I have a little doubt about looking to the future using suppose. may I say>? I am suppose to be there at 6 o’clock.

    I am supposeD to be there at 6.

    All the best!

    Rebecca

Great lesson, Rebecca, you are a very good teacher..

Danddan

Hello Rabecca
thanks for wonderful lesson. it was easy to understand. yeh was pap although, I have doubt if I can use in other tense, like (looking to the future)sayingː I am suppose to be there at 6 o’clock. Another question , can we use will as auxiliary or we use only verb to be…

pcossa

hey dear teacher, what does the phrasal verb “end up” mean????

Parya.Valizadeh

    I was supposed to go to the party, but I ended up staying at home.

    The phrasal verb describes what actually happened, in the end. All the best!

    Rebecca

thanks Rebecca

Sara Eletr

thank you Rebecca :)

Lebe Sandat

hectorgastaminza

great lesson. thank you.

maviaslan

hi rebecca, what is the difference between I was supposed to do sth and I had to do sth?
thank you

Gabriele

    In some ways, they are pretty close, but the second one is stronger and indicates more urgency or importance. For example:

    I was supposed to take my medicine at 5, but I forgot, so I took it at 6.

    I had to register for the conference before I could enter the hall.

    The second indicates no option. It is something you must do, or had to do. All the best!

    Rebecca

Thank you Rebecca for lesson.I was supposed to pass the quiz with excellent mark, but I failed and got only 9.

anahit15

    Haha! But you were far from failing. I would suggest you drop that unnecessary word from your everyday vocabulary! All the best, my friend.

    Rebecca

Thank you Rebecca.

pavanut2

Thanks Rebeca

Jackelinebsanchez1

Rebecca…listening to you, English seems so easy, so clear…I have a feeling that learning is a process more natural that those long hours repeating things I have done before I found EngVid. Thank you very much for your great job!

cristina

    Wow, if we only had a magic pill to speak another language, right? You are right, relaxed learning definitely helps us to learn more easily and effectively. More experienced teachers try to make things more clear because they cut out all the extra words,sentences and noise, which confuse learners. Yet sometimes, intense repetitive learning is also necessary. The trick is to make the repetition as interesting as possible so we get the benefit, without the boredom! My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

mam can we use going to with singular subject

Varinder Singh

Thank you Rebecca,so helpful lesson
I was excited with it.

Ibrahim kadhim

    Thanks, Ibrahim. A small correction, though. You should say, “…such a helpful lesson”. Please watch this video to master this very common mistake:

Not too bad for Quit.
Thanks Rebacca.

werawan

Hi,
Do these sentences mean same?
I was supposed to get done my homewok by saturday.= i should have done my homework by saturday.

Bakhtyari

    Like this, yes, they mean the same:

    I was supposed to get my homework done by Saturday.
    I should have done my homework by Saturday.

    My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Hello, please Rebecca Could you please tell me which sentence is correct.
Brazil did not qualify to the world cup.
OR
Brazil was not qualified to the world cup.

mostafaraouf

    The easiest way to express this idea is:
    Brazil did not qualify for the world cup.
    All the best!

Yours sincerely.

Hello, Rebecca! It was really interesting video, but one question kept uncovered for us. Could you please explain difference of meaning between these two examples: 1) I’m supposed to be studying for an exam (but I’m not.) 2) I wasn’t supposed to go by myself. Why did we use different verb forms there? Thank you!

Everytime that i see your lesson i feel blessed… i can’t find out words to explain it… Thanks again to shared this amazing lesson with us. I got 10 out of 10 and this is possible for your help my dear professor. By the way about questions for a moment i thought structure could be: ” wasn’t or weren’t supposed to or going to” plus
subject plus the rest of statement, instead to : “subject plus wasn’t or weren’t supposed to or going to” plus the rest of statement.”

Regards.

JGeorge

    Thank you very much for your kind comments, JGeorge. It means a lot, especially from a fellow teacher. By the way, the key to making a breakthrough in your writing is to have someone check and analyse it, so you can identify your mistakes and work on overcoming them. I wish you all the best in reaching your goals in the year ahead, especially since you took the time to write on January 1st! My best wishes to you.
