hi, ronnie i like the way you teach. i have some problem…….which i cant overcome. my writing skill is very very poor and horrible. please tell me what should i do?????

rifat zaman

    The best thing to do is to write a little everyday. Don’t try to write too much! One or two sentences to start. Write about how you feel or what you did that day or what you are going to do!

One question.
When we pronounce the first character as H and when not.
Like the word honor and home …where is the difference.

jebu

    H is not pronounced when following W. Some speakers whisper the H before the W.

    what
    when
    where
    whether
    why

    Silent H

    H is not pronounced at the beginning of many words. Use the article “an” with unvoiced H. Here are some of the most common:

    hour
    honest
    honor
    heir
    herb

    Pronounced H

    H is pronounced at the beginning of these common words. Use the article “a” with voiced H.

    hill
    history
    height
    happy
    hangover

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      Thanks …. but what is the rule for the words with the H in the beginning

      jebu

        i think you have to just memorize them as much as you can cause they are irregular in english but if you classify them in lists as ronnie did you will memorize them more easily better as well as you will be more able to pronounce new words with “H” more correctly

        Profile photo of feeling87 feeling87

      but sometimes H is pronounced when following W like whole, who and whose

Hi Ronnie,I long for you…But still I got the illusion to hear clearly the “g” when you speak fast,especially in the “hang out” sequence.

hi ronnie you are my favorite, please you can tell me about confuse words “baby kid and child” i want to know correct use of these words.

    Baby is a child who is not yet one year old.
    kid is the same as child!
    We never say “baby kid” , unless we are talking about a baby goat!

Hi there, thank you so much for your lovely lesson. the only thing that made me confused about it is do i have to pronounce ‘G’ when it is followed by a vowel, for example, bring it, hang on and so on, or not? and thank you.

    hello! when you follow the G with a vowel it is the same sound!

they have to do it by themselves or they have to do it by their own. which one is correct . if both of them are correct . then when we have to use which one. please reply is must.

abbas

    “They have to do it by themselves” is correct.
    We don’t say “They have to do it by their own”. Unless perhaps you are learning Irish!

Ronnie, do you think it is ever possible for a non-native speaker to get a full native North American accent? I feel that no matter how hard I try, I will still retain some of my native accent.

    em… I don’t know. It is different for everyone. Some people are great at imitating and can learn to change the way they speak, whilst others cannot. My Gran, for example, left Scotland when she was 8 years old to come to Canada but she still has a Scottish accent! What country are you from?

      I’m from Israel. Did you know if you click on my picture you can see my city, country, and information? They added it on Engvid last month… I thought you would know, since you work for them. It’s my goal to get rid of my accent this year and submit videos for Engvid…

Hi Ronnie the first thank you for this lesson it is important for me to avoid some confuse about “ng” pronunciation. please can you explain me what difference between to make and to do? thank you for you help

tawfik

    We usually make or create something eg: Make a cake/a mess/dinner/a cocktail -> Make is like create.
    We “do” an action — Do the laundry/homework/the dishes.
    Check our MAKE & DO EXPRESSIONS resource

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      thank you very much

      tawfik

      can I see ” I make relationship “OR “I do relationship”?

        We say “have a relationship”, or “I am in a relationship.”

    I’m sorry; I thought I answered you earlier.
    We give something to someone. Eg: “Give this gift to her.” NOT “Give this gift for her”!
    You can say “I am waiting for her.” or “I have a gift for her.”

I have another interesting question:
“The lesson is created” and “The lesson has been created” – what the difference and when should I use one of them. I think (but I’m not sure) that first sentence describes the current state of the lesson (created) while the second one describes ending of the process. Am I right? By the way, we have one more sentence – “The lesson was created” (Past tense of the first sentence). So when do I use one of this 3 examples. I mean, if you say “The lesson has been created” – what do you want to tell us, and why don’t you just say “The lesson is created” or “The lesson was created” (despite they are present and past tenses respectively, actually they describe action, that happened in the past).
Anyway, thanks for the lesson and may be for the answer.

    Wow! We use has been (present perfect) when there is no time indicator. We use simple past with a time marker… “The lesson was created last week.”
    “The lesson is created” is present tense!

HI RONNIE, UR TEACHING IS SO INSPIRING…PRONUNCIATION IS DEFINETLY A PART WHICH REQUIRES LOTS OF PRACTICE TO GET IT GOING…BTW AND PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I’M WRONG U SAID THAT HUNG AND SUNG ARE THE PAST TENSES OF HANG AND SING , WELL I KNOW THAT HUNG IS THE PAST PARTICIPLE AND IS REARELY USED AS A PAST FORM, BUT HOW ABOUT SUNG, IS IT THE PAST FORM OF SING??? THANK U AGAIN 4 UR VALUABLE LESSONS

MARCO 666

    It’s more common to use ‘sang’ as the past form of ‘sing’,but ‘sung’ is also correct. ‘Sung’ is also the past participle of ‘sing’. ‘Hung’ is not rarely used as the past form of hang… it’s the word you would usually use. You say ‘hanged’ when you are talking about someone being put to death, though: “Saddam was hanged to death.”

    Profile photo of engVid engVid

This is one of those very very subtle details of the language which non-native speakers of English(a group that today outnumbers the native ones)will hardly ever care about. Frankly, as a teacher of English as a foreign language over the past 10 years, I’ve never felt pronouncing the “g” sound at the end of words such as young, long and hang has ever caused me any communication problems, especially when talking to native speakers of English. My conclusion is that in something maybe as soon as some 30, 35 years, pronouncing the “g” sound at the end of those words might become an acceptable variety of English even by linguists(I wonder if it is not already). Anyway, I like your videos and your class posture. I only wanted to add a comment and maybe leave food for thought here!

Best Regards from Brazil, Rogério Silveira.

Thank you so much i love your lesson , it was really useful for me .now the ending pronuntiation is more clear, :D

I want study in English. how I study English?
I forget some words. do you know how I words to study?

Profile photo of needforspeed needforspeed

    The best way to study words is by learning one new word a day. Then use the word in a sentence and practice the sentence. To memorize new words, write them on sticky notes or a poster and stick them up somewhere where you will see them everyday! This is how I learned Japanese!

how do we pronounce fring

    kindly tell me as what would be correct pronunciation of fring as it should be ending with G or ge

hi i have some problem like spelling and listen what i doing

    Spelling is only learned by writing the words out many times (that is how I learned).
    Listening you can work on by listening to language CDs with a script! Or watching movies/TV shows with subtitles in English or your language!

but i couldn’t hear when you said : i sing asong or i sung a song which are right and which are wrong , please can you tell me ?

    “I sing a song” is present. “I sung a song” is past. But you don’t need to say “a song” you can just say “I sing” or “I sung”!

Profile photo of golia golia

your videos are very useful for people learning English I appreciate for your efforts. Could you please answer my questions?
1. A) I jumped up because he had advised me to do so (is this correct usage of past perfect simple?)
1. B) I jumped up because he advised me to do so (I used 2 simple past actions here can I do that? If I can is 1B any different from the 1A)
2. My business was bad because I had no good knowledge (is this right usage of past perfect simple) can I also say “my business was bad because I didn’t have good knowledge” again I used two simple past actions.
3.A) Before coming to India I had been in Australia for 2 years (is it compulsory to mention 2yrs or 2weeks in past perfect continuous and can I use “before coming” instead of simple past “I came to”)
3.B) I had been In Australia for 2 years before I came to India. Or can I write like this “Before I came to India I had been in Australia for 2 years” (in this statement I wrote simple past first).
3. C) I had been in Australia for 2 years when I came to India (do 3B&3C convey same meaning).

4. I had been working before my trip or I had been working before I went to trip (which of these two is correct for past perfect continuous)
5.She had been working before the summer begins (is it compulsory to use simple past before past perfect simple and past perfect continues)
Thank you very much for helping people through teaching English.
Please clear my doubts.

Janet Baidoo

Write as you read, and read as it is written, that’s the big difference between english and serbian language. In our language we obey that rule, and that is simple. That is not case with english, so that makes english language difficult, but interesting. When I learn to speak english fluently, I will come to Canada and make conversation with everybody, even with you Ronnie. So see you, and good luck

Hello, Teacher Ronnie, nice lesson! Thank you. I have been learning English for quite a few years, and I still find it hard for me to pronounce “n” and “ng” correctly. Actually, in Chinese, we have “n” and “ng” these 2 different but similar pronouncations, but since I am from the sounthern part of China, where we don’t have “ng” but “n” pronouncation in our own language, so it becomes so hard for me to distinguish these 2 pronouncations. For instance, in these 2 words – sin and sing. Please help me. a lot of thanks!

Profile photo of davidph2010 davidph2010

    “N” has a short ending, so your tongue ends at the top of your month when you finish the word.
    NG has a long ending. Your tongue is down at the front of your mouth and up at the back. Make the sound long and continue it longer then with N! Hope that helps====goood luck!

Hi Ronnie!
I’d like to know if the “NG” sound changes when it is followed by a vowel in a fast conversation. I’m not sure but sometimes it seems I hear more like a “G” sound when a word ending in “NG” sound is followed by a vowel. For example: I wrote a sonG_About you.
Does it change?
It would help me a lot.
Thanks!

For example “the way we live”.
Does it mean a road or a situation

Byambaa

    It means both – look it up in a dictionary!

Hello,Ronnie. Your videos really helped me a lot, THX!
But I still have a problem with “N” and “NG”, for example, “sing, song, sung” and “sin, son, sun”, because I can’t figure out what the difference between them is. Could you tell how to pronouce them exactly. It really makes me confused. THX!

Claire

    With the “ng” sound it is almost like you are singing at the end of a word. The back part of your tongue is up, touching your back teeth, and the tip behind your front teeth…you have to curve your tongue!
    With “n”, it is a fast stop, with the tip of your tongue at the top of your mouth.

Hi, Ronnie! Thank you for your video lessons!!! In this video you said that the phrase “I playd with my friend” meant “I had sex with them”,right?” A few days ago I could see a boy in the street wearing a T-shirt with the note: “Play with me” Does it mean let´s have sex?

Hi Ronnie,
I’ve just found your lessons on the Internet and I have to tell you that they are really great. I’m a student in Hungary with an English major at the unversity and it helped me a lot to highlight things that I used without knowing the reason why. So thanks again:) bye

Hi Ronnie.U r great teacher.There is a question: If I want to say “I played boling (football, golf…) with my friend yesterday” for this I’ve to say “I hung out boling (football, golf…) with my friend yesterday”. Am I right?

terane

Hi Ronnie, I have this question:

In the gerund forms of verbs that end in -ng like those you used in the video, are the two ng’s pronounced in the same way as you did here (/ŋ/)? or is the first ng pronounce like /ŋg/ and the last like /[ŋ/?

I have a hard time with pronouncing words like ‘singing’, ‘bringing’, ‘hanging’, because after my horrible ‘ng’ sound when it there’s ‘i’, I actually pronounce it like NG, with horrible ‘g’ sound :S Are there any tips how to avoid that? Or should I cheat and pronounce ‘ng’ sound like ‘n’ sound?

Dear Ronnie, I am really confused with the verb to play with smb.It can not be used because it means to have sex with smb, as you say. Instaed ot it you give TO HANG OUT. But in Oxford Learners Dictionary we see the following: to play with somebody/something ,e.g. A group of kids were playing with a ball in the street.
I haven’t got anybody to play with! Thereis no SEX As for hang out, this dictionary gives the following:(informal) to spend a lot of time in a place
The local kids hang out at the mall. This confusion hits the roof. By the way is there the idiom with the same meaning but using the nut. It drives the nuts , something like that. Tnank you in advance
