Very interesting this lesson. Even when some of the words which refer with the stealing stuff, can confuse some of the time, it makes necessary to know how to express in a better way. Thank you Mr. Rebecca, See you and good night!

Berny Herrera

    Thanks for your feedback. Glad you found the lesson useful. All the best.


      Engaging lesson Rebecca! I liked the way you presented the lesson, by eliciting information from us.

      First, you made us think. So the learning of new words were more challenging. Then, by doing the quiz -well-designed quiz, by the way- the contex made the meaning even more meaningful.

      Teaching is an art! You are an artist Rebecca, no doubt about it.

      Thanks a million for your superb lessons!!!


    Since Rebecca is a Mr … you must be a Mrs, Berny Herrera ))

      When in doubt, there’s always “Mx.”, which can stand for “Mr.”, “Mrs.”, “Ms.”, or anything else.

Maqbul Hussain

Thank you Rebecca,
Always useful in conversation but not to commit.
Blackmail is strange , does the meaning come from the use of sending letter with secret identity ( identity from a black list ) to get the recipient giving money otherwise the sender reveals some concealed information to the public .
In french we call that kinda person ” un maître chanteur” litteraly in english ” a singer master ” And thus the action is ” to make someone sing ” . Very poétic isn’t it ? We also call someone who sends unsigned letter with insultes or bad comments on it : a raven. That sounds related to blackmail .
Thank you bye .


    Thanks for your input and glad too know you found the lesson interesting. All the best to you.


      Sorry, I was typing too fast! My comment should read “…glad to know you found the lesson interesting.” Take care!


Thank you Rebecca!
I like your lessons, You explain with simple and clearly language. I understand you pronounciation.
sorry for my mistakes))


    Thanks for your feedback. We can always learn from our mistakes, so you don’t need to apologize. Here are some corrections that might help you:
    You explain with simple and clearly language.
    should be:
    You explain with simple and clear language.
    You explain simply and clearly.

    Simple and clear are adjectives. Simply and clearly are adverbs.

    Also, instead of:
    you pronounciation
    your pronunciation

    All the best to you.


Thank you for this lesson, Rebecca.
When you asked us in the video about the word which means killing someone on purpose, the first word which popped in my mind was “homicide”. Could you explain what is the difference between murder and homicide?

Ahmad Al-Haj

    Homicide is the legal term referring to the killing of one person by another. It covers many kinds of killing, including murder, manslaughter, etc. On TV shows, we often hear the police and detectives using the word homicide, because they are describing the event in the most general way, before they know exactly how or why it happened. Thanks for your feedback and all the best.


I got 10 aut of 10, and thanks for the lesson, really helpful!!

I love lessons about vocabulary, thanks Rebecca! I got 10/10 at the quiz, but I am not sure tomorrow I will have same result. I think that I must read and read again vocabulary resources about crime and criminals.

Carla Letizia

    Yep! You’re right Carla. If we do not put into practice what we learned in today’s lesson, we’ll forget it soon; that’s for sure.

    Reading is an excellent tool to learn more about the language and the world in general.

    Until next time, take care.


Hi teacher.thank you for this interesting lesson and for your perfect explanation.

    ¿Alguna recomendación al respecto?

    Au revoir!


Very well explined! Was my first one. Here is great teachers!


Being a police commissioner in my Country, I have to say that I’ve found this lesson particularly interesting and useful. Thanks a lot, Rebecca.

    Thank you for your brave work in helping to make our world a safer place. All the best to you.


It was interesting & useful Exam .


Sorry, I didn’t introduce myself after. My name is Carla, I am from Italy and I am a new member of EngVid.
Thanks for your lessons, I found them very clear.

Carla Letizia

    Welcome to this marvelous website Carla. In my opinion, EngVid is one of the best and reliable websites on the Internet.

    You’re on the right track!

    Take care and all the best for this New Year!!!


I cannot submit a correct comment, today, indeed!
after=before, forgive me.

Carla Letizia

    Take it easy! Don’t worry Carla!

    Making mistakes is an important part of the learning process. The more mistakes you make, the more you will learn.

    That’s the way it’s always been when it comes to learning another (new) language.



Thanks a lot teacher Rebecca for yours lesson … you know I am really looking for this kind of lesson and vocabulary .. may you give us anther lesson to know more and more about these vocabulary and understood theirs meaning , pleas


Thank you very much. Really interesting!

Angela Palmieri

Thank you teacher! There were words that I didn’t know their meaning however I had heard them. See you then.


    Yes, unfortunately, we hear these words often and it is important that we understand them. Thanks for your feedback and all the best to you.

Thank you very much. Very interesting lesson. I am a teacher of french and I find your way of teaching very simple and very easy but very helpful. Thank you again.


    Thank you kindly for your feedback. As a language teacher, I am sure you agree that we must always strive to make the learning process as simple and enjoyable as possible. I wish you all the best with your teaching and your learning. We teachers are also lifetime students! Best wishes to you.


      I agree with you a hundred per cent. Our work is very hard because we are making good minds. Thank you for all what you do.


thank you very much. Very interesting lesson. Regards


Thank you so much.

I like the Common Law


Simply you’re awesome thanks alot…


Hi Rebecca. Many thanks for this interesting class. It’ll be very useful when reading news headlines. I have a question about the word manslaughter. It isn’t pronounced as the word laughter, although it is written equally. Is there any reason why?


    Good catch, Anthony! Well, this is the craziness of the English language where similar words can be pronounced so differently. There’s no choice but to learn both versions. As a language, English has a long history and many influences. Your sharp observation skills and detailed interest will go far in mastering English, Anthony. I wish you all the best.


Thank you Rebecca! That’s really interesting. You have good pronunciation.


Thank you I got 90%


Thank you very much! Your lesson is very useful for me.
I looking forward next video from you.


It’s an useful lesson,thx^_^
there is one question I want to ask that someone who commits the crime of manslaughter is also called manslaughter?

Ariel Yen

i have a question to you, but it’s outside of the lesson and maybe it’s a little funny,so my question is, Do the native speakers laugh,when they read the wrong foreign speaker’s writing, or when they listen to to broken language speaking?

Bushra hg

    Or when they listen to their broken speaking? Thanking you in anticipation

    Bushra hg

Thanks, Rebecca.Very useful lesson.


hi . men


Hello, Rebecca. I’m very very thankful to you for your lessons. I’ve learned so many things through them. Recently I found that English is only one unchangeable passion in my life during last 25 years. Many years I had a very busy job (financial area from specialist to the manager), but whenever I had time I spent it with learning English. Also I found that despite how many years I try to master English, my improvement is insignificant. Plus I’m facing a middle-age crisis, I’m 38 now. So after many days and hours trying to understand what I want in my life I came to the point that I want to be an English teacher:-)))
Rebecca, I will be very appreciate for your advice. Please help me to find the best way towards my goal. I wish to attend English languages classes in Canada and live and work in English speaking environment for about 2-3 years. Or may be it’s better for me to make Master Degree in this area (I’m Bachelor, economist)? Can you help to find the most affordable way to master my English to the level of teaching it? Thank you for everything. Regards, Kiara.


Thank you very much, Rebecca, for this lesson!

The English language has words to a lot of different concepts that seem similar. This is great to specify shortly what you want to express. I like very much these lessons by this reason: they help expand our capabilities of understanding and communication.

Fabio Cicerre

    … has words for…

    Fabio Cicerre

thank you so much ???


Thank you for this lesson. I have found many new words for my vocabulary.


Hi dear teacher . Thanks a lot.


Thank you so much for new vocab!Honestly,I find it quite challenging cause of inconsistency, comparing with words on my language,which mean the same.But Rime was not built in a day,of course. So,I am going to have lots of practice!^)


    I agree with you entirely Diasha! We express ideas, concepts, etc. in our mother tongue differently.


Thank you so much for your useful lesson, Rebecca. Though I got 10/10, when speaking I can’t produce sentences using those words fluently by myself. I’m not good at speaking. But I understand when people talk to me English. And I think I can write in English quite better than any other skills. How can I improve my English speaking while living in a non-English spoken country, Rebecca? Please also correct my mistakes. Thank you in advance.


Thanks for lesson


The lesson is very good. Thank you Rebbeca.


This lesson helped me a lot to understand crime and respective criminals.You made it easier to understand.Thanks for this video.


Where & How to ask a Question here ? Can anyone guide me ?


Many thanks to your great job, again and again. Maybe you can tell us about different types of mass media in Canada or the US?

Dear Rebecca,
Thanks. With this lesson, I may read and better understand the detective stories.
Yours sincerely.

Hello Rebecca,

thank you for this lesson.

what is the correct meaning of the word hacker?
Ist another word for the word cleaver or lumberjack? (I found these translations on the Internet)

from the english resource: ** hacker does not technically mean a cyber criminal, but the word is often used to describe those who commit computer crimes.


Thanks a lot, there were lots of new words for me.

I was not conscious about all the different words available to express stealing. Indisputably this lesson boosts our vocabulary. Thank you for teaching us.


Thanks Rebecca for this wonderful lesson. I am a policeman. so l will ask about the names of these acts of crime.
1-there is attention to kill but the victim doesn’t die.
2–taking a person to somewhere on purpose of demanding money against free.
3 – taking a girl who love her with her will on purpose to marry without family’s will.
that’s enough I don’t want to annoy you. Thanks a lot.


Thank you so much dear Rebecca.really you explain this topic very well.


Thank you very much!
