everybody I’m happy with my firs participation and I hope I will get information & knowledge from you

Monday, February 14th 2011

Hi Rebecca!
Thanks for your lesson, it’s so helpful. I want to ask you about the difference between two expression “in the same boat”
and “in the ballpark”

Monday, February 14th 2011

    Thanks, Fatmaa.

    “In the same boat” means in the same difficult situation, or predicament.

    For example, suppose we start talking to each other at an airport, after both our flights were cancelled. You can’t find another flight to your destination and I can’t find one to mine. We could say, “Oh, we’re in the same boat.” (or tough situation)

    Or, if two people break up with their partners, and both feel sad about it, we could say they are in the same boat, or difficult situation.

    “In the ballpark” is completely different. It means within an acceptable or approximate range.

    For example, if you offer $250,000 to buy a house and your offer is refused because the accepted offer is $500,000, then your offer was not even in the ballpark. That means it wasn’t even close to what the real value of the house was.

    If two companies are bidding on a contract, and one company’s bid is far away from what is accepted, or expected, then that company’s bid in not in the ballpark.

    Hope this helps you. All the best to you.

    Monday, March 7th 2011

      Thanks a lot Ms. Rebecca! By this explanation I could understand a new expression!!!!! ^_^
      ….We (ESL Learner) are in the same boat!! (:

    aslaam o alikum.how r u

    Monday, February 21st 2011

dear sister r

i have doubts about ‘used to’ and my most difficult problem is i can understand English well but I cant speak it and write it well.

what should i do please help me


Sunday, February 20th 2011

    Thanks, Bunty.

    We use “used to” to describe something that we did for some time in the past.

    For example:

    When I was young, I used to play the piano, but now I have not played in many years.

    When I lived in France, I used to speak French every day, but now that I live in India,I hardly have any chance to speak it at all.

    Hope this helps you. To feel comfortable speaking English you need to find someone to speak to, who can also correct your mistakes. To write better English, you really do need to practice and get feedback from a teacher.

    Try to join a class, find a private teacher or make an English-speaking friend!

    My best wishes to you, Bunty.

    Monday, March 7th 2011

Hello Rebecca! Ireally liked your tips in how to improve our vocab. And I’d like to ask you for helping me to improve my listening and speaking skills, because I have problems in understand a native speaker and so in speak very well. Could you help me please?
Thank you very much and Congratulation you are a very nice teacher!

Monday, February 21st 2011

i like english.but i cant speach in english.

Monday, February 21st 2011

    Everyone starts from somewhere. Make a beginning, as you have, keep watching, listening and learning and before long you will be able to speak too. You need to find someone to speak to, so you can get a lot of practice. Otherwise, all the knowledge stays in your head…try to get it out, even if you make mistakes. Keep trying.

    Good luck to you.

Wednesday, March 2nd 2011

    You need some English vocabulary books, or Business English books. Or else, you can also use an online dictionary; they often give these forms of the word as well.

    My best wishes to you.

    Monday, March 7th 2011

Saturday, March 12th 2011

Thank you for your lessons. I have been following your virtual lessons for couple of days now and amazingly I have learned and better still, improved my Basic English Understanding far better than imagined. However, I am not sure if any other virtual teachers in Engvid have touched on this topic but if not, could you please show the right way to use apostrophe or apostrophe rules to indicate possessiveness, missing letters and so forth.
Once again, thank you for the patience and explicit teaching!

Monday, March 14th 2011

Added on my favorite ones on my blog as well as I told for friends on Facebook, thank you teacher for sharing.

Have you ever thought about ENGVID could put some teachers to talk with us? No matter if we have to pay for it, I think It`ll be very useful to improve our speaking, and It`ll be good for you too, because of the money you`ll received. It`s just an idea, try to tell them there.

Best Regards,

I really really love ur lesson, and i love the way u teach english^^ I have a question i dont get it, what is the different between verb and activity noun?

Monday, August 22nd 2011

I have a doubt aboout the use of “of” or apostrophe , why do you say Saint Patrick´s day instead the day of Saint Patrick? or why do you say Webminster Abbey instead the Abbey of Webminster? thanks

Tuesday, August 23rd 2011

    Hi Raquel
    We use apostrohe or possesive S , when we want to show that these things belong to thise ,
    for example
    Requel’s dog
    Requel’s room
    well, you see in both example we want to show that the dog belonge to Requel and the room as well.
    It just as Saint Patrick’s day
    which means the day of Saint P , and both sentansese are correct . why we Use possesive S just to avoid long sentenses . Insted of saying the day of saint P ,the dog of Raquel
    We can use the possesive S .
    hope you got me.

    Thursday, August 25th 2011

Dear Rebecca
This method is useful but I wonder if it could be applied in any cases for example which words are there for verbs “tell” or “abide” as activities.
Whether can we use telling or abiding as adjectives?

best wishes

Dear Rebecca,
I really love the technique you share us, especially in the case decide – decision and decision maker.
I read some articles and try to use your method, it’s really useful.

Now, in my country, a person has shared us the way to good as English, And I want to tell you so that you could give me your opinion.

He said that “in English, we have about 3000 popular words which we usually use in daily communication. If we know it all, so we could communicate with other well.
The Method which we use to get these popular words is “free reading*”, when we do it, we will receive some repeated words, so this words are popular, this words would be store in our brain on the natural way so we will remember it longer.

*free reading means we try to read as fast as posible. when we see a strange word, just use dictionary to find its mean and continue to read.

In brief, he advise us to use dict to find whenever we don’t know. And if this word is commond, it will be repeat, and with each time each repeat we will keep use dictionary so we will remember it more naturally.

Hope to hear your opinion.

P/S: he share some techniques but I write here one first.

Monday, February 6th 2012

hi mam…
your lessons are really good and useful.i love to improve my language,mam.Though I had my schooling in English medium,I am not that good as expected.I could understand and follow anything being told or taught in English. but I can’t speak out or express what’s in my mind at the right time.my another drawback is I am shy speaking this language before others because I am afraid if others would tease me.Also when I put before my friends this suggestion,ie,to speak ENGLISH, they’d just ignore me.so kindly give me a good suggestion.I’d be greatful if you do the needful.

Awaiting the reply…

Thanking u in advance

Thank you for your video “Business English – How to expand your vocabulary” . I just wathed it (some minutes ago.). As you see I discovered your site today.
I have one question after reading your comments:
Why do you use “in many years” (not for)
in this sentence to Bunty “When I was young, I used to play the piano, but now I have not played in many years.” ?

Friday, December 20th 2013

Thank you.

Hi Rebecca! I’ve started to use engvid to improve my English there is a week, but I am so excited with its lessons. Particularly, I’d like to thank you for your simple approach to teach English. You’re an excellent teacher and the way you transmit the content is very easy to the foreigner learner understand and assimilate it. Thanks a lot!!!

Monday, October 19th 2015

Hi Rebecca , I never paid attention to the “family” of words as I think there is a natural assimilation as part of the learning process. Thanks for your class that opened my eyes to practice it. By the way, your english pronunciation is so clear that lead us to imagine that listening is not a problem at all.
Finally I pround to share with you that I got 100% of the questions.
Thanks a lot Rebecca

Thank you so much teacher Rebecca. It´s an excellent lesson. A so usefull one for the people who are going to take the FCE Exam at the part “Transformation Words”.
On the other hand I would like to know if there is another noun for a person who has the authority to decide apart from “decision maker”. I ask this because there is other verb that can be used with the word “decision” too.
moreover of “make”. The verb is “take”.
I wait for an answer to this as soon as possible.
Thank you so much again.
Have a good one
