10/10. ☺ Rebecca ,is it correct if I say ” You should have to do this work” ? another thing is ; Can i write the word “cannot” by giving space between them. Will it consider right if I do so?

Wednesday, November 1st 2017

    Thanks, Annie. It is possible to say “you should have to”, but it is rare.

    Regarding your other question:
    Use the contraction “can’t” in informal situations.
    Use”cannot” in formal communication.
    Use “can not” as two words only in situations where “can” is followed by a phrase which starts with “not”, such as “not only”. This is rare, but does happen.
    For example:
    I can’t arrive before 7:00.
    We cannot accept this contract.
    He can not only organize the event, but also do so at a great price.

    Hope this helps! All the best to you.

      Love you Rebecca. I have been doing such mistakes .Thanks for your correction. ☺

      Thursday, November 2nd 2017

      I got it rebecca, but still I need to work on it. You are my best Teacher ,thank you as much as sky and ocean ☺

      Friday, November 3rd 2017

I would like to appreciate you, Rebecca ,you have selected the very important topic . My interest with the learning english has far more developed in me and you are the reason behind it ☺. You convert difficult things into simplicity. Lastly, Your handwriting is so attractive .I am in love with it. Thank you so much for giving us such valuable knowledge which help us to grow and make a better person.

Wednesday, November 1st 2017

    Hello Annie
    I think you do appreciate Rebecca and ” would like to” does not express correctly your feeling .
    “Would like to + verb ” means , in a polite way ‘ to want to do something but you don’t know if you can or may .
    You may appreciate Rebecca and so do I .
    I don’t want to play the heavyweight , just to give in return a bit of what Engvid has given to me .
    Bye

Hello Rebecca .
Thank you for this lesson .
Why not using the past tense of must ( had to ) in the phrase ” the policeman said I must come with him .”
Thanks for your comment
Bye

Friday, November 3rd 2017

    I thought the same, according to “reporting verbs” rules, but maybe I’m wrong. Bye.

    Sunday, November 5th 2017

Hi Rebeca. Got a question. In the phrase :If we leave immediately, we may reach the survivors in time. Should be: “on time”? instead of “in Time”.
Thans for your answer and have a nice day.

One more question .

Thank in advance for your explanations.

Sunday, November 12th 2017

Hi Rabecca,
I love your u-tube video, very interesting and easy way to improve english.

I need some advice for this sentence:
“Congratulation to John for your contributions, dedication and achievement that qualified him to be awarded as best staff award.”

Should I use your/his and him/you. Confusing…

Thank you.

Wednesday, November 15th 2017

Rebbeca Thais for the lesson.

Wednesday, November 15th 2017

Thank you so much for your informative and helpful lesson. I just wonder what is the difference between the two mentioned forms of these verbs and how to use them properly (e.x. should/ought to or can/could)?

Thursday, November 16th 2017

I think there is a mistake in the question 3.
The sentence is simple past tense.
…and still have energy for the next day. No any longer!
Should not it be had instead of have?

Thursday, November 16th 2017

Not bad video but your voice is bad

Tuesday, January 9th 2018

    Please be constructive! That is, what can we do differently to make the video sound better?

    If you just don’t like the sound of a teacher’s voice, there isn’t much we can do about that.

    Thursday, January 11th 2018

Thank you. Your grammar lesson is very helpful.

Monday, January 15th 2018

THANK YOU REBECCA

Monday, January 15th 2018

thank you Rebecca

Monday, January 22nd 2018

thank you Rebecca for the lesson

Monday, January 22nd 2018

Just as a side note, I know there are also semi-modals (like “dare” and “need”), which sometimes behave like modal auxiliary verbs. Examples:
* “Need I say more?” (as an ordinary verb: “Do I need to say more?”)
* I dare say you’re pretty hungry after all that cycling (as an ordinary verb: “I dare to say you’re pretty hungry after all that cycling”).

Wednesday, January 24th 2018

I love your class!!!

Thursday, April 5th 2018

Interesting lesson Ms. Thanks for everything

Saturday, April 14th 2018

Madam i have a doubt in this question
“I don’t think they can join us for the meeting. They have another appointment.”
Here “don’t” is used before “can” i thought
“I think they cannot join us for the meeting. They have another appointment.”
The above statement is correct. Please clear my doubt thanks in advance.

Sunday, April 15th 2018

Thanks Rebecca.

Friday, April 20th 2018

Thanks for the lesson Rebecca. It was very easy to understand.

Sunday, April 22nd 2018

Dear Rebecca,my question has nothing to do with the previous lesson. By the way, it was really very good.
No, my question is, could you tell me the Website of your Institute. I am interessted on an English Course in class.
Many thanks in advance.
Sincerely
Hoppel

Wednesday, May 23rd 2018

Thanks for the lesson! You didn’t mention about contractions in negative form of modals. The first and the second rules we should assume as not to contract negative forms. But we can contract!
