Dear Rebecca i have learnt lots of things from you♡
You can change someone’s life by your informative lessons in a heartbeat:D
Thanks for being:)
I got up at dawn to learn your lesson and try to stay up to date in English which is the international language. Thanks to you, Rebecca.
Thanks, teacher Rebecca for your very clearly explaining of the time expressions. I always watch and study English lessons, but not around the clock to keep myself healthy and wise.
i opened this Engvid-lesson just in time to learn your new memory technique
IN THE HEARTBEAT is a nice expression.
In my language, exactly for this idea, we have the idiom : “IN THE EYEWINK” :-)
Thank you very much for this lesson. However, the expression “as we speak” feels a little bit counter-intuitive, it’s as if the Present Progressive should be used:”as we are speaking”. What might be the cause of Present Simple usage in this case?
Thank you again
Have a good day Rebecca. You are a real teacher. Your explanation make any question is easy.
Thanks for you teaching. I can really understand your teaching as you can be clear and to the point. Do you have any lesson on Sentences according to structure?
Useful, thank you so much for it :D

Hello, Rebecca thank you for your insightful lessons. I used to be behind times with respect to my English expressions. However, I have decided to work around the lock to take your teachings. As we speak I am currently trying to put into practice what I have learned so far. It’s already midnight and I feel like catching some sleep. At the crack of dawn, I will continue where I left off.
