    Interesting topic for this lesson since it teaches us how to place more emphasis on negative statements, but . . . Rebecca . . .
    what is the name of this pattern in English grammar?

    Do you know of any reliable websites that deal with this grammar point in more detail?

    Thanks for this wonderful lesson!

    Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks ,Rebecca.

moustafa abdelmegeed

Thanks very easy and useful lesson but I cannot listen with concentration, though I got 20% very poor marks.

Abdul Qayum

    The advantage of online video lessons is you can go back, listen, review, relearn; maybe you also need to make some notes as you write to stay focused. Try it and see if there in any improvement. Many people are visual learners that benefit from writing down information. My best to you, Abdul.

    Rebecca

I got 10 correct out of 10! Ya~y :D Honestly, I thought it would be difficult for me when I looked at the title. Because I have never used the powerful negative expressions “Never before,” “Under no circumstances” and “On no account.” So I was surprised because my score was perfect! Perhaps I was just lucky. But I was really glad! Thank you, Rebecca :D

Happy04

Thank you very much, Rebecca! How a cool lesson!

    Rebecca

teacher Rebecca,you are an awesome teacher.I can understand your English

isharaa weeraddana

Hello Rebecca, thank you so much for the lesson. I noticed it’s easy to remember what so say after these expressions when you simply change the second part of the sentence into a question form.

Never before have we made such a mistake.
Have we made such a mistake?

It’s the same! :) Easier to remeber this way. :)

Satya

    Cool, thanks! My best to you.

    Rebecca

    Hi Satya, your logic is very nice. Forming the Negative statement from the question. Before I looked into your comment, I felt hard to remember. Thanks for it.

    Will we permit alcohol to the party?
    => Under no circumstances will we permit alcohol to the party.

Great! useful lesson thank you.

ENZOEXC

What can I say… A big gain of our Revolution, in Romania, in 1989, was the right and power to say NO. I saw your lesson ten hours ago. And I used “NO” in a negotiation 20 minutes ago. I’ll use your TACTICS in speaking with Canadians.

geotip

    Very happy to hear you were able to implement what you learned. The power of human learning, drive and determination at work. My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Thank you, thank you once again that you don’t forget about those more advanced students;). At last some riveting lesson;)

    hello. friends

    are you practis english with me? plese contact me .
    my skype id is “abdullah_rti”

    abdullah

I have learnt sometething new !!! :) Are there a lot of these kind of expressions where the rest of the sentence acts as a question form ??

Never before have I seen these sentences. :)

Pavel-15

    When the sentence begin with an adverb which has a negative sense. Some examples here:
    – Only after have I seen it with my own eyes I believed.
    – Only yesterday did she tell me.
    – Hardly had he seen me when he ran away.
    – Little does he know how hard we tried.

    enga

      thank you :)

      Pavel-15

      As far as I can see, you are an expert on grammar, aren’t you?

      Regards

      Regino

    There are not too many examples of this, but it is an interesting way to add variety to your communication. All the best, Pavel.

    Rebecca

Thank you, Rebecca. I like very much your lessons and your way of teaching. Congratulations!

Pascual

Very very useful class.Thanks.

Thank you so much!

buyeromanya

    Yeahp!! It really does!

    Lauro T.

thank you

ambreus

It’s not an advanced lesson;I apologized,but,this lesson is for beginners.

maicon55

    Hi Maicon55,

    …with all due respect I strongly disagree with you. Beginners do not master all verb tenses and this is a must in order to use this pattern correctly.

    Regards

    Regino

      Maicon55, I am glad you consider this a beginner lesson. Your comment says a lot about your own English level. However, in reality, it is an advanced lesson as most beginners are trying to master more basic and straightforward sentence construction. All the best to you.

      Rebecca

      Yes, Regino, thanks for your help. My best to you.

      Rebecca

TANX Rebecca I like the lesson :)

Thank Rebecca,it’s great, I have a question, “On no account” , “Never before” , “Under no circumstances” phrase , have something else?

Never give up

    These are the most common ways of constructing such sentences to express these thoughts. All the best.

    Rebecca

ohh…

Miramis

Dear Rebecca, Firstly, I’d like to express my appreciation for all valuable lessons what you’ve given. I like all of your lessons including this one. Your lessons are very useful for me.
Moreover, I want you to make a lesson regarding to usage of SUPPOSE . I still confuse with using this word. Please Rebecca.

Thanks again

oscargutierrez502

Sorry ! Leave, no left.

oscargutierrez502

Interesting topic for this lesson since it teaches us how to place more emphasis on negative statements, but . . . Rebecca . . .

what is the name of this pattern in English grammar?

Do you know of any reliable website that deals with this grammar point in more detail?

Thanks for this wonderful lesson!
Looking forward to your reply.

Regino

    This is known as inversion. You could look for it online or in more advanced grammar books. Other examples of inversion include using the following expressions:
    In no way (am I related to her).
    Rarely (has there been)…
    Little (did I know)…
    My best to you.

    Rebecca

Thanks again, Rebecca!

MartinLeber

It’s so easy, but not many people know. Thanks so much.

anhgiap86

    Yeah, you’re right Angiap86. Not many know how to use this pattern appropriately.

    Have a great week!!!
    Regards

    Regino

patple13

    You may have non-native English ears, but you seem to have an English-speaking mouth! You write very well. One correction: you wanted to say grammar peculiarity. Congratulations and all the best to you.

housin

hey will it be the same if we use continuous tenses or does this settle for simple tenses only?

sucifn

    You could use it with continuous tenses too, but carefully, as shown below:

    Never before was he spending so much time at the club!
    Under no circumstances were they moving their headquarters.

    All the best to you.

vicbanares

Hello Rebecca! It’s me again, I’ve been following your lessons for 5 months now, in which I think I’ve learnt a lot. You’ve got a unique way to teach and by default it’s a 100% effective. Well I don’t really know whether you remember me or not but I’d like to suggest you prepare a lesson about the correct usages of: Whom and Whose. I’ve seen that there’s more than one type of usage and I’d really appreciate if you prepare it for us. Thank you very much. Best Regards from Bolivia!

Leo.ali

First, thank you! Your videos are always good.
I have a question,
Do these 3 expressions have same meaning?
I mean, there is example that you wrote, “On no account will we admit anyone”. But can I change it to “Never before will we admit anyone” or “Under no circumstances will we admit anyone” ?
Can I use any of these expressions whenever I want, or I wonder if each of those have different meanings.

Anyways, I am going to listen&study these videos everyday! I am so happy to found this website. Thank you!

giraffe1226j

Hi Rebecca, first of all thanks for your lessons you’re a very good teacher, now if you can help me ’cause after this lesson i got for the first time all the answers wrong, i’m a bit confused why the right answers all started with will? isn’t it the way to form a question? that’s what made me chose all the wrong questions, please can you explain this to me?Thank you. (I hope my English is quite understandable)

Rosa Casiero

Why i keep leaving comments but nobody ever answer to me, this make me feel so sad. Please teacher Rebecca would you answer to my comment above? Thank you so much.

Rosa Casiero

Aymane2

Can we use any one of the three in place of the other?
As in your second example
‘we will not admit anyone under 18’
Never before will we admit anyone under 18.
This seems to be wrong.
help me out please.

knowledge seeker

This is great thanks a lot! I checked my grammer book this subject was on last pages. I am feeling a bit desperate how i’ve never seen this kind of structure. I am feeling i have so much to learn in English and it’s kinda frightening me now. Hope i can success in ielts. btw here is a video from Adam also about inversion: http://www.engvid.com/english-grammar-inversion/

hello rebecca! I have a question. I want omit “so” in this sentence for formal writting and add another word. Which word is better? The sentence is: Never before have we spent so much.
Thank you.

abanbanafsh

Hello rebecca,

In the course “English Vocabulary Errors: Redundancies” , using the expression ” never before” was considered as redundancy…
Why in this chapter, this redundancy is enabled?

engVid770

Rebecca, why it is ‘should bother’ and not ‘should bothering’?
