shouldis used every day in English. We use it to refer to the present, past, and future. In this lesson, I focus on how
shouldis used most often, to talk about actions in the past that didn’t happen. I show you how to use expressions like “I should have called” or “I should have gone” easily and confidently. You will learn how to combine
shouldwith the present perfect tense and regular or irregular verbs, to upgrade your English right away.
100% . Thank you Rebecca!
You’re very welcome, Annie! My best wishes to you.
I have studied your class for a long time
but still memorize nothing. I need you help.
in this lesson you mentioned that we use present perfect after should when we talk about the past, is that mean we will never find past simple after should ?.
Nearly perfect except for the irregular verb “to cost”. It’s Always a pleasure to learn with you, Rebecca.
Madam- your way of teaching is easy & awesome ..wishing best for upcoming tutorial videos.
I should have been more attentive to my English classes at school… But, as you said, it’s never too late ! And thank you for remembering that :)
Absolutely, my friend! Every day is a new day and a fresh opportunity to improve our lives. A famous saying from years ago was:
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
Makes sense to me! I wish you all the best, Sakenussem.
This famous quote is from Victor HUGO…
Thanks a lot.
Thank you again Rebecca. I should have learned English when I was younger. Today it should have been easier for me to study English. but I didn’t have chance to go far enough.
This is a great saying! From now it’ll be my motto:)
Thank you Rebecca for your amazing job. Stay bless
I want to ask about why we use should have with he , she and it
why we don’t use should has
Actually because of the grammar rules.
Grammar rule for Present Perfect Tense:
I/you/we/you/they + have + past participle
he/she/it + has + past participle
I have studied hard for two months.
She has studied hard for two months.
But grammar rule for should modal verb in past is:
All subjects + have + past participle.
She should have listen to her mother.
In grammar there is sometime no logic, just need to learn the grammar rule.
Thank you Rebecca, i got 90%
I have got 7/10, I shouldn’t hurry to decide the answer and should have rewrited carefully. I will try to next lesson, thank Rebecca
“I shouldn’t hurry” is not really correct.
Correct is: “I shouldn’t have hurried.”
Grammar rule: subject + should + have + past participle
oh really !!!i got 10 out of 10
Hi Rebecca …..pretty good way of teaching the use of the modal should…….very clear and useful lesson ….thank you …..i got 9 out of 10 ……the verb “cost” tricked me because I didn’t know it’s an irregular verb
https://youtu.be/pzcF0VyXcOE Should I Stay or Should I Go (Remastered)
Great lesson. 100%. Thank you Rebecca. Greetings from Poland :)
Cost, cost, cost… Thank you.
Great lesson, Rebecca. Thank you
I have got 80% thanks Rebeka .one day I will score 100%
Thanks by the explanation about: I should have known better.
Hello from last 15 days I am listening Rebecca mam’s lesson really awesome. Her way of teaching is too gud.
Your a wonderful teacher Mrs. Rebecca. I’m learning so much from you. Thank you so much. ????
“I’m learning…” is Present Continues and it is not the best to be used in this case. You should have used Present Perfect Tense “I have learned…”
The difference is ‘I’m learning…’ means at this moment, at present time. But you probably tried to write: “You have learned…” it started in the past and it still continues to the present and probably to the future.
I REALLY love to watch your lessons its very handy
Thank you Rebecca! You are the best teacher on Engvid!
I got 9 out of 10. I thought it should be “costed”.
I should have known better about this verb. I should’ve learned more in my school :(
But i think that, there’s no point in crying over spilled milk. I should learn a lesson and try to prevent it in the future.
From now I will know It is “cost” :)
I shouldn’t have written such a long comment.
Because nobody will read it. Oh… I noticed I actually wrote more than 3 sentences with “should have” expressions.
Have a nice day for all who read this comment :)
Soy novo aquí me chamo david luiz, tem algum brasileiro aquí que pode me dizer que esse curso é bacana
Thank you, teacher….!!
I got 90 out 10. thank you Mrs. Rebecca
He should have checked on me when I was at my worst time but he didn’t. The disappointment is real.
Bad, bad, boy. He should have been spanked.
I understand the lesson, but I wanted to know from your perspective…
Why someone might/should go out of their way to help someone they don’t know?
(An example would be teaching others English for free, but even beyond that..)
Great lesson! I didn’t know about the power of use SHOULD verb in the past. It takes incredibly perspectives to describe expectation/advice/obligation in the past. And I shouldn’t forget about this rule. Thanks for improvement our English skills.
It’s time to learn irregular verbs again..
Thank you Rebecca!
Thank you so much Rebecca!!!
thank u rebecca
Thank you I liked the lesson. I should have seen it before.
Hello Rebeca, I should admit, you’re a good teacher. I shouldn’t have missed your previous lessons.Thanks
Thank you ma’am
Thanks for the lesson.
Thank you madam for the lesson
Great!Thanks for the lesson
Wow! I never thought I might be able to answer all the sentences in the correct form. Thanks.
Thank you for the lesson. It’s really workable. The way you teach can be understood easily. So should have no problem from “Should” in future. Thank you madam.
Thank you so much
I have 10 out of 10. Thanks, Rebecca!
Got 10 out of 10. Thank you so much, Rebecca!

really an interesting lesson
Thank you Mam for such a Good techqunic.
Thank you Rebeca for this usuful lesson!!!
I find it a challenge to understand why using should is important in the English language. If Jack should have done is homework. Instead, Jack did not do his home work. I will share, 3 words that do not carry an energy that helps to express a commitment in speech – could – should – would. Why are these words even used?
I do’t speeking english , but I try it
I got 60% .
Thank you madame for the lesson. i appreciate the way of explaining.
Thank you rebbecca.i should study hard to make me smart.i’m from indonesia.

Sorry Madam for my error on 8th question. I knew the 3 forms of the verb cost (cost, cost,cost) but your trap is “costed” … !!
Thank you teacher.
I’am new, I should have known this website earlier !!!

Thanks a lot for your great efforts
8/10: I LIked this video!!! Saludos desde venezuela!!
thank you ! but i have a question, why thr past participle of the verb is “gone” and not “went”
go – went – gone
“gone” is past participle
Very useful lesson, thanks a lot, Rebecca !
Thanks you so much for your lesson. I shouldn’t have done mistake the 3rd verb form (cost,cost,cost)
very useful but I make a Mistake. I should learn more.

I should have watched this video earlier.

I get 100 mark,, I very happy
Thank you teacher Rebeca
Thanks so much to Rebecca for the way of explanation.
Thank you, Mrs. Rebecca, for your effective lessons.
thanks for the lesson.
I have a question: Why I have to use “HAVE” also for the third person of the singular?
It is just a grammar rule.
Subject + should + have + past participle.
Don’t confuse this rule with Present Perfect Tense where rule is:
he/she/it + has + past participle
There is no real logic behind, there are just two unrelated rules for two different purposes.
Thank you very much! I enjoy this lesson!
this is so easy, make it harder pls, thank you
Thanks Rebecca You are the best!!!!

Hi Rebecca, may I use ‘should’ in Present Perfect Progressive tense and say for example “I should have been doing more exercises”?
I should have gone to run for an hour yesterday.
I should have eaten a salad according to my diet.
I should have gone out for a wolk but I couldn’t because of outbreack.
I shouldn’t have gone out without a face mask.
I shouldn’t have thrown away him letter.
Rebecca, you are the best teacher in the world. Lovexxx
