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.

Monday, July 3rd 2017

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.


Monday, July 3rd 2017

    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.


    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!

    Wednesday, August 9th 2017

Monday, July 3rd 2017

Very good, Rebecca. It’s great to learn English with you. Thank you so much.

Monday, July 3rd 2017

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

Monday, July 3rd 2017

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. ❤️

Tuesday, July 4th 2017

    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!

    Monday, August 7th 2017

      “I hope that answers your question!”

      Monday, August 7th 2017

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

      Monday, August 7th 2017

Thank you so much I got all of them correctly

Very well lessons and quiz test. Great job!

Tuesday, July 4th 2017

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.

Tuesday, July 4th 2017

    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.

I love English, but it’s DAMN tenses … P.S., P.P., P.P.C and so on … I hate it.

Tuesday, July 4th 2017

    Aww….I understand,Vladkabatkovich. Whenever anything is too hard, try going back a few steps and review the stage where you start facing problems. Take your time and master each step. You can do it. All the best to you.

    Wednesday, August 9th 2017

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.

Wednesday, July 5th 2017

    So glad the lesson was able to help you identify your problem areas. The first step to solving our problems is to understand we have them! I wish you all the best, isakibrahim8315.

Friday, July 7th 2017

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

Friday, July 7th 2017

    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.

Friday, July 14th 2017

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?

Friday, July 14th 2017

    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.

    Wednesday, August 9th 2017

    in this case understanding is a noun, not a verb

    Friday, October 27th 2017

I got 6 of 10 :( I need to study more, it was so complicated for me but that’s the reason that i been studying here, thanks Rebeca.

Wednesday, July 19th 2017

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?

Wednesday, July 19th 2017

    A better sentence would be:

    The survey is about customer satisfaction with food and services.

    All the best to you, Sophie.

    Wednesday, August 9th 2017

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

Sunday, July 23rd 2017

    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.

    Wednesday, August 9th 2017

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

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


Monday, July 24th 2017

    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.

    Monday, July 24th 2017

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

      Monday, July 24th 2017

        Thank you too engVid Moderator :)

        Tuesday, July 25th 2017

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.

Friday, October 27th 2017

grate lesson and best way of expression Rebecca thank you.

Monday, October 30th 2017

“It rains all day yesterday”
why we used this verb “s” it must be “was raining” not “rains” because it’s raining a long time.
Am I right?

Hi Rebecca! Thank you for the lesson, my score was 💯! But I have a question, in the example 2, in Wich case when can I use the present perfect? I understand when is past perfect or when is past continuos but present perfect is a little complicate. Thank you!

Tuesday, January 23rd 2018

thank you

Saturday, January 27th 2018

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

Tuesday, January 30th 2018

#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.

Hello, Rebeca!

You said, that in the first sentanse we should use only past simple “It rained all day yesterday”
Will it be correct, if I use past continuous?
For example
It was raining all day yesterday

Monday, March 12th 2018

Thanks Madam being a good and quality teacher.

Wednesday, March 14th 2018

my greeting to you.

Sunday, March 18th 2018

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.

Sunday, March 25th 2018

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?

Sunday, March 25th 2018

You got 10 correct out of 10

thank you so much

Tuesday, March 27th 2018

It’s my favorite lesson from today. All simple, useful information in one place. Thank you!

Wednesday, April 25th 2018

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

Wednesday, April 25th 2018

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

Saturday, April 28th 2018

    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!

    Sunday, May 13th 2018

I love your lessons, Rebecca! They are rather clarifying. That’s a nice review indeed. :-)

Sunday, July 14th 2019

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:).
