Hi Gill you’re so sweet and thanks for your efforts to improve our English.

Will done Gill. Engvid is a great team work and you are an important part of it ;)) Could I ask an explanation, please. What’s the difference between the expression ‘I was invited’ and ‘I have been invited’ and similars. Thanks for your precious efforts.

Friday, March 6th 2020

    Hi – thanks for your kind words :-) ‘I was invited’ is simple past, as in ‘my friend invited me’, which happened in the past, and the event is probably over now (whether I went to it or not). ‘I have been invited’, as in ‘my friend has invited me’, has a more immediate, present relevance, and it sound as if the event hasn’t yet happened, so I have the choice whether to go to the event or not. I hope that helps to clarify :-)

Thanks Gill for your tutorial. Please what’s the difference between dead and death, I get confuse on how to use them in a sentence.

Saturday, March 7th 2020

    Hi – ‘dead’ is used mostly an adjective, whereas ‘death’ is an abstract noun. However, it’s also possible to use ‘dead’ as a noun, as in ‘bring out your dead’.

Thank you Gill. Your lesson is very clear and I love your easy and clear pronunciation.
I have a question about active and passive forms:
when we use I have not been invited vs I was not invited?
thank you in advance

broken down. in this variant broken is not verb? It is adjective? in any case i do not know different between they.

They were advise to use a website to improve their English. – What wrong? 2 passives cannot be used in one sentence?

Saturday, March 28th 2020

a very good lesson indeed. I have improved on my active and passive verbs usage today.

I wasn’t bothered to learn this until recently when my work required me too.

Thanks for the lesson Jill!!!
