Thank you so much for wonderful English lessons.
I need to know how *Have and had* could be in one sentence ?
Yes, in the present perfect (have + the past participle), if the the verb is have, then you would say “I have had a dinner”.
thanks too much
I hear SHON no shin..my ears have some problems?
NO! If you hear shon that is fine too!
hi Ronnie, I have some trouble about the different between suggestion, question with another word ending with -ion , and different between “f” and “tf”. Thanks you
Is it? I have been pronouncing “shon” for years. I was about to beging saying “shin”. It sounds more native.
I have a question.Ronnie.
you said “I have a dinner” is wrong sentence. we must not put the article.
here this sentence “I had have a dinner” there is “a”
I’m so confused. could you please explain for me?
hi ronny …..u r excellent.But u told only “shin” and what about the words end with “sion” like conclusion n fusion. what sound does it make when we speak the word “conclusion”.if u tell me that i would be in a better position.please reply
Thank you for the lesson. I am having hard time to pronounce Session, section, sanctification and situation.
I was watching the video from Mr. James ESL reading comprehension, so i have one question: in english, the nativespeakers they tend to use a lot of idiomatic expressions, then reading a text how can i comprehend the idiomatic expressions into english?, because the context is different.
What is the different between “be going to” and Present Continuous for future arrangement?
u way of teaching is soo coool. i really like ur style.
god bless u…
Hello, I always enjoy you video, please Can you tell me What is the difference between the words make and do?
Thank you very much for your great style in explaining.
Hello Ronnie! I have a request for D:

“I ain’t” is very poor grammar! It is used by uneducated people. It is the same as isn’t or aren’t, but NOT correct!

hey !! hi teacher.
just to thanks you a big ! hug for you..
you are so sweete !
hi roonei, this lesson is very imporatant in english language
thanks too mush
thank you for lesson
Thanks for your nice video. But it didn’t seem that your pronunciation respelling was very easy to understand.
Here’s what you wrote;
The sound of ‘ay’ (as in day) is spelt either ‘a’ and ‘ay’ inconsistently. And, the sound of first ‘i’ in ‘mission’ is not an ‘a’ sound. It’s an ‘e’ (as in bed) sound. I would like you to use the BBC respelling system. It’s easy and clear.
Here’s how BBC respells these words;
presentation (prezn-TAY-shuhn) or (pree-zen-TAY-shuhn)
If you google ‘BBC respelling’, you can find the respelling guide.
For your information, it works for American English as well, of course.
I think you should teach in your own web
I agree, poblanitochido. I agree.
good afternoon madam, my naime is murthy from India. i decided to listen ur class, ur the best in english classes. so kindly requesting please tell the ” if conditions will,would” becuase it’s a little confusion.

could you give me an ex sentences using “had had” in one sentence..thank u
Had had is the past perfect tense. Ex. I wish I had had a coffee today! When we use past perfect, we use had + past participle (p.p). Sometimes we need to use the verb have, so in this case, we would use had + p.p of have = had had.

I love your website, I must say I learn a lot from these lessons.I have a question: When to use infinitives and gerunds? Many thanks.
I believe there is a lesson on Engvid about gerunds and infinitives – search on the website!!!!
thank you so much for teach us.you have easy way to teach.one question,what means “…stand for..”and when we have to use,?thank,bye,bye
thank you for spend your time whit us .you have easy way to teach.one quetions ,what means “…stand for …” and example to use?.thank.bay for now
“to stand for” something means to agree or tolerate it.
You can say “I won’t stand for that behaviour.” ( I don’t agree with it/won’t tolerate it)
Or “I stand for women’s rights.” ( I believe in/agree with women’s rights).
how to use should,would could
Goody Day teacher Ronnie! Please explain the pronunciation of these( BEAR , BEER ) and ( MEAT , MEET)..thank you!
Meat and meet are the same!!!

Yes! I do like beer!
your lectures are very useful, i would be thankful if could please tell us about the correct pronunciation of character C,G and TH and the use of can could would.
There are lessons for both can/could/would and how to say ALL the English characters!
Hi Ronnie. I’m from Kazakhstan, Almaty. Thank you very much for your lessons. Could you make lessons about the Future perfect tense and future perfect continuous tense.
I’m sorry if I wrote something wrong, unclear or impolitely.
I look forward to your an answer.
Your writing is perfect! I think there is already a lesson on future perfect and future perfect continuous…….. just serch on engvid to find it!
If not, future perfect = Will + have + past participle. We use this with by/within. By 2020, I will have had 6 children. The action will end by 2020.
Future perfect continuous = will + have been + verb+ing. I will have been waiting for 10 hours. This means that we are STILL doing the action!
Thank you! You helped me a lot.

You can either say “lots” or “a lot”. We usually say “lots”.
Thanks for nice lesson,I m from india and i would like to improve my english by your lesson. THANKS RONNIE MAM
Thank you Ronnie, I love how you teach the English lesson.
thank’s for your lessons and your humour.
But I don’t agree with yout prononciation of “ion”.I think it’s better to say “sh’n”
(like Sean Conery)
What do you think of it?
Sean we say “Shawn”.
It al depends on your accent – I’m sure other people would say “sh’n”. But I say “shin”. There are so many different accents in English!
Thank’s lot for your reply.
There are so many accents and it’s difficult for a french people.
I’m very happy to watch your lessons.
Thank you I personally like the way you teach, you speak clearly, slowly and you go Straight to the Point, I have been watching your videos since last Friday.
I really appreciate your help.
i really ingoy your class it’s so usfull to me thanks big love
Respected Ronnie Mam,.

Hi Ronnie..Thanx 4 ur free lessons. I like them and also like your way of teaching. I want to know what is the difference between the pronunciation of “listen” and “lesson” ..thank you dear
lesson – “less-in” Less like the opposite of more!
listen = ” liss-in”
i like your lessons so much
i want to learn more about pronucation ,my pronucation is so bad . can u teach from the beginning ? dear teacher
hey..m not able to see any vedio lesson ..wheneve i click on lesson heading..i get nothing to see..is there any other procedure to watch vedio lesson??kindly guide..
HI.Ronni I wanted I had never listent for any teacher funny and professional like you aunist and i wanted to ask you if i listent for all these site`s grammar lessons and wathed anothe live vedios will i be fluent in english without talking to english people i hope you answer me i really need your answer and i had a lot of time learning english with no use there is something wrong in my way? maybe!
I really don’t think ANYONE can become “fluent” in a language if they never speak to people! You can learn grammar and pronunciation but you can never become fluent because you have no idea what the other person may say to you. It’s like watching a video on how to swim = you can learn the different strokes, but you can’t do it properly until you get in the water!
HEy dear Ronnie:)
Mam.. I really get confused that where should i pronounce “c” as see and where as “K”..and “G” as “Jee” and where as ga”” ,,But dear I found this trick by myself,,but i dont know does it works really,,the trick is that Whenever there is a word “E”,”I”,,AND “Y”.after anyy word ,,the pronounciation of the word remain same,,For example “GENEROUS”.it HAS got the real sound of “g”.. because there is word “e” after “G” and another Word is REceive,,AS there is E after c ,,datz why WE cant change the sound of “c”,,it is pronounced as “see”,,Hope this trick works always
Ronnie: You are such a wonderful teacher. Specially I love the way you teach words ending in:”ION” For us spanish speaking people is the best advice.
Would you please teach us how to pronounce the words ending in: “ISM”
Merry Christmas!! and a Wonderful New Year !!!!

Thank you Teacher Ronnie your lessones are always Perfect
I have a question related with this ending is:
are all of these words nouns?
Hi Ronnie Madam…i really love d way u teach…u rock…n engvid is awesome…
Thanks for your help
Hi Ronnie. You are great! I do love your lessons.
Just a few suggestions:
– When people are asking about other subject here, you may simply include a link to another video that deals with that specific subject.
– As for this lesson:
1. I think that you’d better go from simple to complex. So, in the first instance, it would be advisable to tell that “ion” is a meaninful word by its own right, even if the pronunciation is different when being attached to roots.
2. IMHO, you should first give the shorter examples, like “action”, then mention the longer ones, like “population”.
3. I think that you should mention here “ocean”, too, just to show how arbitrary English spelling is.
4. I don’t think is worth wasting your time with giving your own phonetical transctiption of English words, or you may use the IPA system, if any (but this means to first give a lesson about that system). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPA
Actually, IPA isn’t so easy, but because of its worlwide recognition it’s worth learning it because you can also use when learning other languages than English (Chinese for example :-)
Your phonetical transcription may seem funny for some of us (Hungarians, for example, but I could also quote the Korean Hangul), who already have a strong phonetical writing system.
Cheers and keep up the good work!
(I like your looong blondish hair, by the way…:-)
By the way:
One of the websites that provides free of charge pronunciation and IPA transcription of English words is http://www.macmillandictionary.com/
Thank you very much!!
please tell me which is the difference tend vs have????????
Look them up in an online dictionary.
Thank you my teacher for halp me..
thank you… You are great!

Hi Ronnie. Thanks for your good way to teach us. I have a question: many words ending in ion are action nouns and I have notice that also there is other way for action nouns that end in ing. For example what’s the right way for this: planting or plantation? Watering or watertion
final destination is an excellent movie:)
Thank you very much for the class, I love your style, it is very easy to learn with you, I am taking your tips and I feel more confident with my english :-)

I love you lesson Ronnie
hi, i love your lessons and your teaching but i want practice on my speaking with someone in the internet like Skype or yahoo can i speak to you or to someone you tell him make this with me …thanks for your efforts
Hello Ronnie. Your use the the word “shin” is approaching a regional dialect variation of English in its delivery. A better explanation would be “shi-on”, which is closer to “tio” (pronounced “tzi-o”), the latin origin of the ending. Since this is a ESL course, is this an accomodation/compromise for non English speakers?
Please teach the proper pronunciation of burn and born, world and word, and caught and cut.
Hi Ronnie ,i wonder how can we say vision??i think that “shin” is not right here
Ronnie, your lesson was very useful for me, thank you so much. Please tell me if the words from the first column are usually countable or uncountable.
GOOD JOB TEACHER ROONIE GO ON
