    Just one question dear Rebecca:

    Is it possible to say . . .

    “I’m just sitting here watching the world GOING by”?

    Thanks very much for your precious time and one hundred percent commitment Rebecca.

Hi Rebecca. Another great lesson. May I ask you for some explanation on the tenses usage in your example no 1?

1. Present simple + “since” seems to be unorthodox. Is it, in general, allowed? Would present perfect work in your example as well?

2. In the second clause, could present simple or present perfect be used instead of simple past “had”? Is it correct to say “I’ve been so happy since I knew you” ?

Regards

    Profile photo of anoksha anoksha

      Thank you, the truth is, I’m only playing with the idioms, only for practice the writing. About the meaning of the Idiom “the world at his feet” means be admired by everyone.

      Profile photo of Jorge Pedroso Jorge Pedroso

“he had the world at his feet “…i can not understand this idiom …may you explain it to me again ?

Profile photo of anoksha anoksha

    For example – Imagine two boxer fighers. When a fighter KO his partner. The partner on the winner feet.
    That mean you get success in something.

Dear Rebecca,

That is a nice lesson again! I regard you a very didatic teacher. So I would like to suggest you a lesson about the differences between “thou” x “you” and “ye” x “you”. I know it is archaik English, but it is quite used in classic books like “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”, by Harriet Beecher Stowe, or “Moby Dick”, by Herman Melville, especially among the Quaker characters. Of course I can understand them, because “thou” is very similar to the “tu” used in latin tongues. However, I have doubts in pronunciation and conjugation. It is not easy job to find that in books! If you may attend my request, I will be rather glad and grateful. As a Brazilian proverb says: “knowing does not occupy space”!

Best wishes,

Eduardo

Thanks, Rebecca.
I would like to ask a question.
I know the phrasal verb ‘save up’ money.
But can I say ‘save up’ water?

Profile photo of Sophie Sophie

    Yes, you could say “save up water” if you know the water is going to be switched off, for example. In other words, you are going to save up some water so it is available later. All the best!

Any advice for studying the academic poetry ??

Profile photo of ghasa ghasa

    I suppose you mean serious poetry. A lot of poetry uses words and expressions in unusual and creative ways so a good book or teacher will help you understand what the poet was trying to convey. I wish you all the best.

Good evening, Rebecca.
I am Haridan.
I have been studying with your lesson on Youtube channel but today I would like to bother you about my worrying. Why can’t I listen English clearly ? Even if I can translate while I am reading the subtitle. But when I don’t read the subtitle I am confused and can’t understand what they are speaking. In one topic or lesson (if I read the subtitle) I know almost all of words, there are just 1 or 2 words that I don’t know.
This is my big problem when I talk with a native speaker or other.
How can I improve ? I have been trying to listen such as BBC radio, engvid lesson, Introvert by Jade ect. But my listening skill is still not good. Are there tricks or techniques for that, Could you please please recommend for me ? Thank you.

Profile photo of Haridan Haridan

    You could work through some special books for ESL / EFL learners that focus on listening skills. You could also use the guidebooks for the TOEFL, IELTS or TOEIC exams and follow the transcripts while listening to the CD for the listening sections of those exams. In addition, listen to the same passage more than once till you can understand without the subtitles or transcript. All the best to you.
