But I can use play with golf, am I right? since it’s a game and games are played…

Sunday, March 29th 2009

    Yes, you can say “I play golf!”

    Monday, May 25th 2009

      When talking about sports/games -or any other topic- is important to know which word goes or collocates with which word. This will help us use the language properly.

      IT’s much easier for me to learn vocabulary in context as it makes the learning of vocabulary more interesting and meaningful.

      Thanks for this superb video-lesson Ronnie.

      Saturday, June 6th 2015

Friday, January 21st 2011

    I go snowboardING is in simple present form…. (used for talking about routine)
    I am doing aerobics is used in present continuous…. (we use for what we are doing NOW)
    I am going to GO swimming or I am going to GO snowboardING is future tense….(we use when we talk about future plans)

Friday, June 17th 2011

    Yes, do + weightlifting is correct. But we say “I lift weights.”

    Friday, June 17th 2011

What about boxing? It ends in ing but you use DO is this just an exception or is there a reason. Also, what about badminton you don’t use a ball but you do say PLAY?

Saturday, June 18th 2011

    If you do it at a gym, we say DO. So do boxing is ok. Or you can say I box.
    Badminton we play.

hi miss ronnie.. thanks for the great lesson..umm.. i have one question..why we use ‘s’ for “i race cars”? what meaning of that ‘s’in sentence? last time you told me to use ‘s’ for he,she,it. like ‘he races car’or ‘he likes car’. is that ok to use ‘s’ for ‘he races cars’? i confused bout how to use ‘s’in right place for sentence (-_-”).. can u give me solution bout that? thanks a lot miss
ronnie..GOD bless u

Friday, December 2nd 2011

    “He races cars” is correct!
    We have to use the “s” on “I race cars”, because there is more than one car in a race — so cars must be plural! You cannot have a race with 1 car — you need at least two!

    Saturday, December 3rd 2011

oh,sorry miss.. thats not a one question.. but some questions..

Friday, December 2nd 2011

Thanks Ronnie.
I confused many times its but I understand cleary.

    Practice we usually use for doing sports. Eg…Football practice.
    Exercise we use for physical activities that are not sports. Eg. I exercised at the gym.

    Monday, January 9th 2012

      Do we use “practice” for music instruments?

      Monday, January 9th 2012


        Tuesday, January 10th 2012

excellent effort for these words to make it easy to use and sensible

I would ask you how we can say’ i play the Facebook’ or ‘i play Facebook’. As i was saying Facebook is a game. So, we use the verb ‘play’. Is it correct?

The second question is how about computer? Is it correct the sentence’ i play the computer’ ( because computer is a instrument )? Can i also say’ i’m using the computer now’? If no, why?

Thanks a lot Ronnie. I hope to hear back from you soon.
