hi rebecca i want ask you something about O LEVEL A LEVEL and HIGHSCHOOL.

Thursday, July 1st 2010

hello miss. Rebeca hope you ok……..my doubt is what dos the word bruch mean? hope answer my question…….by the way are latin?

see you later and take care :)

Thursday, July 1st 2010

    Perhaps you mean the word “brunch”?

    This is a meal which is a combination of breakfast and lunch. The word “brunch” takes the “br” from the word breakfast and the “unch” from the word lunch. Brunch is eaten instead of breakfast and lunch. Many people have brunch on the weekends, when they wake up too late to separate the normal breakfast and lunch times.

    Hope this is what you wanted to know!

    Monday, July 26th 2010

      Oh, Rebecca, very nice explanation,Now i am also clear about the word ‘brunch’

Friday, July 2nd 2010

Hi i have gone through this video and my only problem is that i does’nt know how speak fluently please help me in this manner

Friday, July 2nd 2010

    Speaking English well is the result of studying the four main skills of reading, writing. listening and speaking, along with lots of practice. Keep using the language in every way possible and as often as you can. You also need the feedback of a teacher or English-speaking friend to correct your mistakes. If you’re really serious, find a private teacher and tell him/ her you want to focus only on developing your oral skills.

    All the best!

Hello,teacher Rebecca..
I’d like to thank you and the rest of the staff for all your efforts..This is my first comment since I signed up..It’s irrelevant to this video but pertaining to one of your posts which is Expressions with DO & MAKE..I just wonder why that precious lesson doesn’t have a “Print or Save this File” feature, just like the one on irregular verbs!! I hope you provide this feature so that we can have a hard copy of such valuable lessons. Thank you, dear teacher.

Sunday, July 11th 2010

Thanks for the video. I would like to get my long pending doubt clearified from you. Could you please explain me the difference between “had been” and “have been” wrt to the usage. I understand that have been is present perfect and had been is past perfect, i want to when to use what.
say, wht’s the difference btw the following sentences..
— I had been to India
— I have been to India

Awaiting your reply

thanks in advance

Sunday, July 11th 2010

    “I have been to India”

    Present perfect – Here you are speaking about something you have done in your life till now.

    “I had been to India when I was younger.”

    Past perfect – here you are speaking about something that happened when something else happened.

    Here are some better examples to help you understand:

    When I came home yesterday, my children had done their homework and my husband had cooked dinner.

    This means that the children had completed their homework and the husband had cooked dinner before the person came home.

    The past perfect tells us about the past, and what happened first in the past.

    Hope that helps!

    Wednesday, July 28th 2010

      Thank you – here you real help us.
      Thank you again ^_^

      Sunday, September 19th 2010

Monday, July 26th 2010

Hello Rebecca, I just want to Thank You for this lesson, It was so difficult to me to understand the different from each other, but this way is simple and easy, Thank You again Adios.

Monday, July 26th 2010

Hey teacher,
i really find myself completely unable to use “Could” in any sense.and each time i need alot to ponder over that where would be the exact situation,where i be able to use this “could” exactly.n one more thing differentiate this “these” and “those” to me.

Tuesday, July 27th 2010

    You could use the word ‘could’ in the following ways:

    Could you please shut the window/
    Could you please pass the salt?

    When I was younger, I could run 10 kilometres, but now I can only run 5 kilometres.

    When I lived in Paris, I could speak French fluently but now it’s been so long that I make a lot of mistakes.

    In the simplest sense, we use the word “these” to refer to people or things which are physically close to us. We use “those” to talk about people or items which are physically a little far. That’s the main difference.

    Hope that helps to clarify some of your doubts. Good luck with your English, Sam.

    Wednesday, July 28th 2010

Thanks alot teacher for clarifying me all that ..

i want to ask few more queries..i have some doubts each time when there is a need to use “DOES” in sentence.Could you please explain this to me in detail with multiple of example so that it would be easier from me to understand its usage by all means and wayz..ALSO i know all of the tenses in english grammar but each time i get confused in using simple present sentence with present perfect.that whether which tense should be the rightone for using in sentence instantly.

Thursday, August 5th 2010

Hello, Rebecca,
i have one question that, in future tense we use shall with [i, we] and will with [he, she, it, they].here in Pakistan. but in ur video u used will. Can u plz explain me y u used will. i m very confused plz do reply me i m waiting for ur answer plz clarified it for me.bye

Friday, August 6th 2010

    Today, in common everyday English, we don’t usually use shall at all. Most people only use will. In more formal situations or sometimes in more formal British English, the word shall is used in the future tense. Mostly, it is used by very learned people, but not really in everyday language.

    Hope this helps! My best to you, Maha.

No doubt, I amazed by your personality and the way of your explanation. However,I would rather make my explanation more simple and understandable for non-native speakers.For describing my everyday or regular actions which I can do often,sometimes,always,never(+all other possible key words)I should use the Present Simple Tense.For example: I work. If I want to say that now I am busy with my work, I should say it in Present Continuous. For example: I am working now/ at the moment. But if I would like to say how long I am busy with my work and I am still busy with, I should use the Present Perfect Continuous. For example: I have been working for two days on my project.(and I am still busy with it). At last, my project is ready. I should use the Present Perfect to show that. For example: I have just worked out my project.
So, Present Simple -for everyday/regular actions.
Pr.Continuous-for “now” actions.
Pr.Perfect Continuous- for unfinished actions and you are still busy with it.
Present Perfect – for completed actions by the moment you speak about it. This is a simple way of explanation of the present tense system which can be converted into past and future.

Sunday, September 4th 2011

excuse me Rebecca I think no one of these items is the right answer of the question you asked for the quiz.
Identify the verb tense.They are going to call you later.

a)Present Simple
b)Present Continuous for the future
c)Past Continuous

Sunday, September 11th 2011

Every teacher seems to have a personal style and way to teach the 12 Time related verb tenses. Is it possible that James teaches all the verb tenses and gives a “trigger” word for each tense like he did with PRESENT PERFECT and PAST SIMPLE.

I am studying for my TEFL certificate from home and as a native English speaker it is hard for me Mind MAP this out. Yet all your videos seem to help me the most.

Wednesday, September 21st 2011

I love this video, but i requests to have videos

i don’t understand english verb tenses. i heard there are 26 tenses in english. i want to learn all of it but it’s really confusing :\

Monday, January 16th 2012

Hi Rebecca, very useful lesson!!!

I was reading a book and appeared this verb form:

“I have been married with John”. So, this form is Present Perfect Continous or not? Because if was the Present Perfect Continous the verb “to marry” should not be in the ing form ?

thx in advance

Monday, January 23rd 2012

dear miss Rebecca i hope you will be fine i had problems in identification of sentences that in this sentences,its tenses are present continuous tenses or present perfect tenses please help me in this confusion

Tuesday, January 24th 2012

Wednesday, January 25th 2012

I live in Phnom Phen.I like this vido.

Tuesday, January 31st 2012

why did they use were in this sentence “If I were a boy” or “If I were you”…..? instead of was?Could you explain Rebecca…Thank you!

Thursday, February 2nd 2012

    “were” is simply used instead of “was” to show that the action was impossible to fulfill. Lemme give you this example to show you: When you say ” If I were a bird , I would fly” are you a bird? Can you be a bird? impossible ,so “were” is used here instead to show this impossibility.

    Tuesday, October 2nd 2012

could you help me .i can`t understand how to use BEEN AND BEING pleas help me. if you can make video for this i will be very happy thank you

Wednesday, February 8th 2012

    “be” can be used just after models such as can,may,must,wiil,shall,could,might,had to,should,would,had to,need to etc
    “being” however can be used in a passive sentence to show its progressive aspect.for instance: The phenomenon of global warming is being dealt with a kind of laxism.
    “been” is used in perfective sentences for example: I have been learning English for years
    I have been in London Seminar about climate change.
    Nothing serious had been done to stop ozone layer depletion by countries like USA,China and many others.

Hi,Rebecca!I want to ask a question related to Present Continuous.My question is suppose i am at Barber shop and the barber is shaving my beards,at the same moment one of my friend calls me and asks me “What are you doing?”So i want to know what would be the perfect answer for the question?If would shave myself,i would simply answer that “i am shaving” but here the shaving is done by the barber and it’s in continuation.Then what would be the perfect answer?Please help me.

Sunday, February 26th 2012

Dear Ms Rebecca,

I’m wondering if you could help me with this issue. I am solving one online test right now, and there is a sentence which says:
“I did my homework while I _____ television.”
I’ve thought that the correct answer was “was watching”, but it wasn’t. The correct answer was “had watched”.
Well, I’m a little bit suspicious and confused about the correctness of it, because if I did something in the past while (not before, not after) I was doing something else, then “was watching” must have been the right answer, or I’m completely wrong?

I am preparing myself for an IELTS test and would be very grateful if you correct any mistakes I made in this conversion.

Sincerely yours and best regards also.
Igor :-)

Tuesday, March 27th 2012

Hallo Rebecca!
Thanks for your work. You are very good teacher. I’ve got one question- Can you group all the lessons that are dealing with tenses in one block. Cause a big list of lessons and I can hardly find the right lesson. May be to create one block of lessons that refer to the times. In this lesson you were counting them. I mean want to remember all these times step by step but I can’t find the whole list of tenses here? Maybe I am wrong in something, I hope it will make easier studying times

Wednesday, March 28th 2012

dear teacher,
please would you tell me the difference between aspect ,tense and time

Friday, March 30th 2012

Hallo Rebecca!
Why do some people use “have had/has had/had had” in their sentences??
Are these sentences correct grammatically? Do these sentences follow grammar rules?
I have got some sentences which made me so confused-

1. Have they had their breakfast yet?
2. Have you had a nice evening?
3. Have you always had hay fever?
4.I’ve had a headache since early morning.

Please make me understand anyhow.:)
And do correct if there are any grammatical mistakes.
Thank you!

Saturday, March 31st 2012

    And one more question- when we have to use had had?

    Saturday, March 31st 2012

hi how are you ? you are going great job by propagating the english language …i have a problem …i cant speak rather i cant make proper sentence structure while speaking but can write correctly so please suggest me some tactics or techniques with which i can be able to speak fluently by making proper sentence structure thanx

Saturday, December 27th 2014

Hi, Rebecca! I would like to understand, if there is any real meaning difference between: 1) “I have been cleaning the house for three hours” and “I have cleaned the house for three hours”. 2) “I will have been working here for ten years tomorrow, so we’re having a party” and “I will have worked here for ten years tomorrow, so we’re having a party”. 3) “I have been working on that project for the last two weeks” and “I have worked on that project for the last two weeks”. According to my comprehending there is no significant difference in sense between the present perfect and the present perfect continuous in those three cases, is not it? Thank you.

Hi Teacher Rebecca,
I did the practice test well, except 8th one.
” 8. Identify the verb tense. No thanks, I’ve already had lunch. ” this one made me a little confused due to the presence of “already and had” but I understood after repeated reading.

Thank you for the lesson, and I am extremely thankful to the EngVid team and teachers (Emma, Rebecca, Alex, Adam, James, Ronnie, Jade, Benjamin, Gill, Valen and Jon) for providing the free platform for enthusiastic English learners like me.

Dear fellow learners, please watch, share or refer to friends and support this wonderful online academy engVid.com.

I wish you all very happy Healthy and successful new year 2017.

Sunday, January 1st 2017
