I think you should also mention the preposition at when talking of specific place where one is born: ‘I was born at County General Hospital in Chicago, Illinois’

hi Rebecca it’s beautiful lesson i wanna know what difference in accent ”burn _ born ” can you help me
thanks a lot

Profile photo of caeser caeser

    It’s true that some people may not distinguish clearly between these two words.

    You can pronounce “born” like I have in the video and also like the name Jason Bourne in the Bourne series of movies (Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy, etc.)

    The word “burn” is pronounced more like bern or turn or learn. The vowel u in the word burn takes on more of a short e sound, as in the words above.

    My best to you, Caesar.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Thanks a lot.


why the preposition on be used ON your birthday.

Abdul Khaliq

    The word “on” is used in the phrase “on your birthday” because we generally use “on” when we refer to one day or one date. Examples are:

    on Monday
    on January 25
    on New Year’s Day

    Therefore, we also say:

    on my /your / his / her birthday

    Hope this helps, Abdul. All the best to you.

Hi dear Rebecca,

This lesson will help students answering the questions mostly asked by the examiner during speaking module of IELTS.

Thank you very much.

Profile photo of sania1982 sania1982

    Yes, you’re right. They do ask such personal information questions in the first part of the IELTS speaking exam. Thanks for pointing that out, Sania. My best to you.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

I love your classes. You explain so easily and so calm that we understand everything you said.

Profile photo of pascoa pascoa

    Thank you kindly, Pascoa. One small correction, if you don’t mind: so easily and so calmly.

    My best wishes to you.

Profile photo of salma73 salma73

Hi mam,
If I want to mention time,date and year together, how can I tell it?
Thank you.


    Good question. In this case, we would need to use more than one preposition, according to the information we are giving. For example,

    I was born at 5:15 a.m.on June 15, 1990.

    My best wishes, backer.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

Thanks so much


i wish it had been a little bit more difficult…


    Really?? Sometimes life is easier than we expect and that’s okay too! We have many other videos at higher levels too, if you enjoy challenges. All the best to you, Cristina.

Hi, Rebecca

Your video teaching is really helpful to expand my English.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Sonika. In the meantime, you may find some good tips for answering IELTS speaking questions on my website goodluckielts.com.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

there’s an expression I’d like you share it with you guys, to show where you born and rise at the same time:
I was born and breed in Blida.
is that Ok dear Rebecca.

Profile photo of raheem raheem

    Thanks for thinking of that, Raheem. The expression is “born and bred”.

    For example, if you say, “She was born and bred in France.”, it means she was born there and grew up there and she is French in terms of cultural characteristics.

    Thanks for sharing that with us, Raheem. All the best to you.

MAM, good lesson! I have a question and I have always been confused in preposition which you have used ‘on Sept 25’ but I was told that , when we talking about months and years we use the preposition ‘in’ e.g I was born in September 25,1995…PLZ tell me am I wrong or what else?

Hello Rebecca. Thank you very much for lesson. I have a question, how can i say my birthday, if i want to say date and year, i mean with wich preposition? Thank you.

Profile photo of nuash nuash

    You can say,

    I was born on January 25, 1995.

    We say this because the month comes first and we have to use the correct preposition before we mention months, which is “on”.

    All the best to you, Nuash.

    Usually, when people say “It sucks.”, they mean that something is very bad.

Hope you will help me as well as othe peopl who having problem is use of them by posting a video on use of could and shoul in simple present. I have seen all of your videos they are wonderful, no words to comment on. Looking forward that’s it.

Hello Rebecca. I am revising the verb tenses right now, and I really enjoy studying with your video lectures. I have a question:
Is the verb “was born” past tense of the verb “to be born” or passive voice of the verb “bore”?
If the task is to determine the verb tense in the sentence “I was born (time expression).”, what would be the correct answer? I have already read several explanations about this problem but none of them refers precisely which rule to follow. Thanks.

Which are correct?
a) Where were he born?
b) Where was he born?
c) Where were they born?
