    Thanks very much for pointing that out, Luciana. The correction has been made!

    Also, here’s a small correction for you:

    We don’t say, ” I did a mistake”, we say “I made a mistake”.

    Thanks for your feedback and all the best with your English.

    Monday, May 15th 2017

thank so much rebecca fo helping me learn english fo my ielts test.
anyway could you explain about number. 10 ? i still didnt understang why the correct answer is “I’d appreciate your assistance”.

Thursday, May 11th 2017

    In Question 10, you were asked to find the sentence with NO mistake. In other words, two sentences had spelling errors, and one sentence had no error. Sentence B had no mistake so it was the correct answer. Hope that helps! My best to you, NeenaKaluti.

    Monday, May 15th 2017

Thank you Rebecca, I really admire you!

    Tuesday, June 13th 2017

I really appreciate very much your lessons. I can tell you’re a experimented teacher with a lot of running hours of experience.
My sincere gratitude to your work.

Monday, May 15th 2017

    Thanks very much for your kind words, PacoBe. So let me return the favor with a small correction. In English, the most common word order is Subject-Verb -Object. After that, we can add additional details. So you should say, “I (subject) appreciate (verb) your lessons (object) very much (details)” and not “I appreciate very much your lessons”. See the difference? Small changes such as these can have a big positive effect on improving your English. My warm wishes and thanks to you for caring enough to learn and grow. All the best.

    Monday, May 15th 2017

Thank you Rebecca,i need to talk with you please

Monday, May 15th 2017

A very full and long lesson about writing letters. There is a lot of work to do and to remember to write a letter completely. The task doesn’t forget all the steps and uses them in order although it isn’t a difficult homework, there are a lot of legs to follow to do it alright. A completely class to improve our level but with a little workload if you wants to be shorter in your schemes. Thanks a lot, teacher Rebecca, it has been a very interesting lesson as always.

Tuesday, May 16th 2017

Dear Rebbeca
