john-paul

Hello my dear teacher!It was a very useful lesson. I hope you read my comment because I have an important question.

I have a huge problem with some Words as like: every body, every thing, nobody, nothing, somebody, something. I actually mean that I get confused and I do not know that the verbs after them must be in plural form or singular.

For example: Every body knows this subject or Every body know this subject.

Nobody lends you a pen or Nobody lend you a pen?

Thank you very much my pleasure teacher.

Mehdi 2022

Hallo Rebecca,

nice lesson as all the others of you.

I´m often thinking, if present perfect is a present or past tense. It is the tense, that includes the past as well as and the presence. Therefore it is a little tricky.

Than

adrijana

    Yes, the present perfect includes the past and the present. For example:

    I have lived in this city for 10 years.

    In this example, you lived there in the past and you live there in the present. So it includes both.

    Similarly,

    I have lost my pen.

    This means you lost your pen in the past and it is still lost.
    .
    Hope this helps! All the best to you, adrijana. How wonderful that you speak so many languages!

    Rebecca

It’s always a pleasure to learn English with you. You always explain very well! Thank you very much Rebecca! You’re amazing!

Marylou

    Thank you kindly, Marylou. Always a pleasure with wonderful, motivated, and appreciative viewers like you. My best wishes to you.

Júlio César L Sousa

thank you very much rebecca for your useful lesson .my best salutation from morrocco

benzouhir88

A great lesson thanks. I scored 10. I just want to say something about the fourth sentence. I’m just a learner but isn’t it a past simple? Not present perfect? Thanks again Rebecca you’re a great teacher. ❤️

Jude Benyamin

    Hello! It’s present perfect because the day is still going on. It’s not a finished time in the past. It would be past simple if, for example, the question was: “Did you see Sybil yesterday?” I hope that answers you question!

    Valderí Andrade

      “I hope that answers your question!”

      Valderí Andrade

      Thank you so much. That’s kind of you to reply to me. ❤️

      Jude Benyamin

        Anytime!

    Rebecca

Very well lessons and quiz test. Great job!

lyisae

So you´ve been teaching for more than twenty-five years, teacher Rebecca. I´m surprised. You´re an inspiration. As you said, time is precious. We´d better not waste it. Someday I´ll meet you all, teachers from engVid, whose lessons have helped me so much. And as much obsessed as I am with Canadian culture, I might even end up settling down around there somehow. Thanks for the great lesson. Have a good day.

Emanoel Pereira

    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and wishes, Emanoel. It means a lot. Please do write to us if you make it to Toronto. We would be happy to meet you too. In the meantime, enjoy your days, your books, your music, and the energy of your home country. It’s a special honour to hear from a fellow teacher like you. All the best, my friend.

astapik

    Thanks, astapik. So glad you found the lesson helpful. The tenses are so important! I wish you all the best.

    Rebecca

It has been a very great lesson about the past and present tenses, a very useful review, check, revise or reread but what about the future, I think the future maybe a little more complicated, anyway we can follow to study verb tenses and give our opinion why we use them in our sentences. Thanks a lot, teacher Rebecca, your aid and comprehension are very important to us, you understand our mistakes and you revise them very carefully, it is a great detail from you.

Thida Oo

Sorry Rebecca but about at 11:35 did not you say: “understanding”? I must assume that the -ing form is allowed in other contests?

marcoroma

    Yes, you’ll get better at understanding this subject, you’ll get better at solving this problem, you’ll get better at speaking English…

    This form is correct and can certainly be used. I wish you all the best, marcoroma.

Thank you very Much Ma’am.

samir585

It´s a doubt at the movie she said:
“The verb to understand can´t be used in the continuous form.”
But at 11:30 she says:”You are your own teacher, so as you get better at understanding”
Is it wrong The form she did say at 11:30?

Fabio Zotti

    It is correct to use the word understanding in this way. Please see my reply to marcoroma above.

    What you cannot say is:

    I am understanding you.
    He is understanding me.

    In those cases, you should say:

    I understand you.
    He understands me.

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

    Rebecca

    in this case understanding is a noun, not a verb

Thanks, Rebecca.
By the way, I would like to ask a question.
‘The survey is about the customer satisfaction on food and services’ is this sentence correct? After ‘satisfaction’ we should use what preposition? on? with? of?

Sophie

    A better sentence would be:

    The survey is about customer satisfaction with food and services.

    All the best to you, Sophie.

    Rebecca

Is number 4 really an example of Present Perfect Tense like teacher write in red letters?

kweros

    As I explained in the lesson, number 4 is about both present perfect and past simple. So really, you need to review both those tenses if you made a mistake there. Hope that helps to clarify the issue. All the best to you, kweros.

    Rebecca

7. __________ your cellphone?
Did you found
Have you found (correct).

Hi :)
Can anybody explain why “Did you found your cellphone?” is wrong?

Thanks.

Maria Jessica

    It would be correct if it was: Did you found your cellphone yesterday? We use present perfect when something happened recently and there is not any particularly time.

    YuliaTuzova

      Quick correction: “Did you find your cellphone yesterday?”

      engVid Moderator

        Thank you too engVid Moderator :)

        Maria Jessica

Thank you Rebecca for the good lesson and also for the quiz. My 2 answers were wrong. Those 2 questions were of same type. From those 2 wrong answers I have learn “If you refer to a finished time in the past, use the past simple tense and not the present perfect tense.”. Thank you for the explanation in the quiz result. I have a question regarding this type of question. Is the sentence “I have finished my lunch just now”. correct?
I have another question regarding your video. Will it be correct if I say “It was raining all day yesterday.” for first example “It rains all day yesterday.”.

Good lesson Rebecca. This was my first time watching your videos and I loved it. I have already subscribed to your channel. I really have difficulties to understand the present perfect. Could you help me to understand when I should use this tense? And also, about past perfect, can we use to express only one action that finished in the past right? Thank you for the lesson.

hello my teacher, i can’t find the other lessons about different tenses, thank you

#7 was tricky to me, both answers can be used to my knowledge, but I forgot to focus on the continuity of the searching, which needs the present perfect to be used with it.
thank you and I know now how to use those 2 tenses perfectly.

hassane@

Hi Dear Teacher,

Firstly thenk you so much these videos are realy perfect to undersatant between difference of tenses. I have question to need advice I’m not good in grammar therefore I need more detail video which contain all grammar rules. İs there any advice video as perfect as like your videos.

canokan

Hello
I’m having a bit of a hard time understanding the perfect continuous aspect and the difference betw past perfect continuous said to be used for short periods of time. As the present continuous is also used for long periods of time thus why we use verbs that last a long time.For example few months /years is not a short period while 3minutes 1hour is.Could you explain the diferences plz?

Yunoasta

You got 10 correct out of 10

blackhumorist

I always have problems with past perfect and present perfect. Thank you for your help!

Sally Brazilian Student

why( did you found your cellphone?) is incorrect?

yoshaa

    Hello Yoshaa! The right question is “Have you found your cellphone (Present Perfect Tense)?

    We use this tense to express actions that began in the past and somehow are still related with the present.

    I hope it helps you! Bye for now!

Hello. I’m puzzled. Could you please help me? The first sentence on the board.
“It rains all day yesterday.”

Why not “It was raining all day yesterday.” ? – wasn’t it a process? Why did you use “It rained…” ?

Thanks a lot Rebecca!

Abdullah Alshamiri

Thank you so much for such useful lesson, but I have got confused about the first sentence in you example. I mean “It rains all day yesterday”. Why we should use Past Simple here and not Past Continuous? The rain it is a process and it needs time, especially when we see “ALL DAY”. I would say “It was raining all day yesterday”. Or maybe when i see the word “YESTERDAY” it is some kind of marker that in that case it must be ONLY Past Simple regardless any other circumstances? Thank you:).

What is still confusing me – it is the use of Past Continous and Past Perfect Continous. I can’t figure out the difference in the use.
