Still a good and kindly lesson before starting the day.Thank you Rebecca.

beernaard

Thank you! Miss Rebecca, Got 90! But could not understand question No 1 “We need to do the dishes, mop the floor, and make sure to set the table”.

Why is this option correct? could you explain?

Rehan Ahmed

    I have the same question to Rebecca.

    p.s. thanks for the lesson!

    Alesia

    As far as I understand the lesson .This might be because, In the sentence, structure should follows verb along with verb, noun with noun,adjective with adjective etc. Here ,in this sentence ,verb is being used so ,It follows with the verbs. “sure” is an adjective. That’s why ” make sure” didn’t fit here. And as well as you can read the sentence ,it does not sound rhythmic so, that’s inkling towards faulty parallelism .

    Annie

    The question asks which sentence is INCORRECT, therefore the incorrect sentence is the correct answer

    VanikaElms1

    If it were correct, this sentence would be:

    We need to do the dishes, mop the floor, and set the table.

    You needed to choose the answer that was INCORRECT.

    All the best to you. Thanks to all for your help.

    Rebecca

Awesome lesson! Please keep posting lessons like this. Thanks a lot!

Could you answer me? The sentence- “Using faulty parallelism is not so serious and will not lower my grades”, is not correct because have the incorrect meaning? Is it grammatically correct?

sawkay

I got full mark .Than you Rebecca

eugeneraf

You are a good teacher.

chungkim

Thank you so much Rebecca!!!This is by far the most useful lesson I´ve ever watched about writing!!!I think I´d been making all these mistakes for a very long time. Now, everything is much clearer.
However, I´m still a bit confused about when you write prepositions. For example, in the last example of the video you explained that it´s correct to say:
Let´s start by checking your essays and looking for any faulty parellelism.
Would it be correct to say:
Let´s start by checking your essays and BY looking for any faulty parellelism ???
Would it be the same case as in the number 2 of the examples?….TO speak to the manager, (TO) return the cellphone and (TO) get a refund??

knopfler86

    It is correct to do it either way. You can repeat the preposition each time, if you wish. However, if each element needs the same preposition, you do not have to repeat the preposition. You can just say / write it once, and it applies to all the elements equally.

    Glad you found the lesson helpful. It is really the key to upgrading your English significantly. All the best!

    Rebecca

I understood the lecture andd got the full mark

Thank you so much!I could fix my fault correctly.

kazuky188

Hi Rebecca.

I really appreciate your job. Your way to explain is superb!. If is possible, could you seggest me some websites to practice the parallelism?

Daniel A.

A little confused because you need know nouns, verbs, adverbs and so one but anyway I’m improving my skills and be much better day by day, thanks to Rebecca!

ctierrez

    Yes, you are right. You do need to be able to identify the various parts of speech. We have various engVid lessons that explain these points. I wish you all the best.

    Rebecca

What’s wrong with the following sentence and what part of grammar does it belong to? ‘If it was not going to work, I would’ve told you’.

bavann

Hi Rebecca.
The lesson was great for my. It helps me to understand english languaje. One question, in the lesson, there is the next sentence:
I like to watch movies and to travel “abrod”. Is correct “abrod” ? or it will be “abroad” ?

Regards,

Gafin

Dear EngVid, can you make a video about putting the verb “to be” in a sentence. I am talking exactly about “Clauses” I think it is called so. For example: I don^t know what IS her name and I don^t know what her name IS. What is the difference between them. And what am I supposrd to use in order to sound more like a native. Please let James to mske this video. He is the best teacher ever by far. Thank you EngVid. I really appreciate it!!!! And you guys are the best

AnarBayramov

Dear Rebecca;

I really enjoyed this lesson. It was very rich in content and useful, to improve some grammatical issues.

Regards.

marigaby71

Once Again, I got a wonderful lesson of English.. I scored 100 marks in this quiz.. Thank you Ma’am..

SIJOMON

I got 10 answers correct.
During your truly appreciated lesson, I tried to predict the correction of the parallelism as the following:
1- managerial ability to others and global working experience. Does the parallelism still remain correct preserving original words (to others and working)?
2- I replaced (finding) instead of (looking for) where the original is (to look). Is it acceptable as per the question to correct the faulty parallelism?
Thank you.
One more please: Is it correct to say highly appreciate?

Chokri MAATOUK

10/10! You’re the best teacher in the world!

Frax90

    Apparently, you are the best student! I wish you continued success with your English, Frax90.

Hi Rebecca!

I have learned and understand a lot of them.
Best regards.

Christ987

Great lesson. Thanks.

byte

OOHH i loved this lesson. You speaking it’s very undertandble thank you so much

Gabriel025

Hello Rebecca! I was able to note that in sentences with word sequences, before the last word antecipated by the word ‘and’ you put a comma. In Portuguese in these cases we do not put a comma before the last word in a sequence anticipated by ‘and’. Is this correct for the written English language?

John B

Thank you so much Rebecca

rivanaqueen

Hi Rebecca, thank you very much for your vitality, clarity and simplicity in your presentations.
However this lesson gets a problem for me.
Can I ask to you the following question ?
If Janet just sings but not dances and if my decision is only founded on two view points and not three ? What happens with the style ?
The academic cercles considers this like a mistake but what about my honesty and my ability to look things as they are ?

Serge.T

    No problem Serge T. You should maintain the parallelism, even if you have only two examples. You do not have to give three examples. All the best to you.

    Rebecca

Thanks a lot Rebecca

Richard hamdi

–topic recomendation —
Hello Rebecca
You are great at this job. Thanks for the lessons. I just would like to recomend a topic that I believe in that it is really challenging for the most of English students. The topic is when we should use “which” and “that”and even “those” as a conjucture in the sentences.
Thank you in advance

Sincerely

cengizyucel

ESL students are so lucky to have you ,Rebecca.I love the way you teach as you turn complicated lessons into much more easier ones.can you please make a video on the present perfect tense? I am having a hard time using it. thanks in advance !

sarah ali ali

Thank you, Rebecca, I got 90
from testing and great lesson to improve my English.

neng nao

Hi Rebecca! The lesson was meaningful, fruitful and helpful for us. I couldn’t get right the first MCQ of the quiz. Do the dishes, mop the floor and set the table looked parallel but it turned out to be wrong. Need some explanation on it. Thanks

Ashifa

    You were supposed to choose the sentence that was wrong. The correct sentence would have been:

    We need to do the dishes, mop the floor, and set the table.

    All the best, Ashifa.

    Rebecca

Thank you for the lecture at least i have learnt something new today

Emeka Ifeanyi

    Yeah! So glad you did, Emeka!

    Rebecca

Hi Rebecca, In the last example of parallelism “Let’s start by checking your essay and look for any faulty parallelism”, wouldn’t it be better to just say “Let’s start by checking your essay for any faulty parallelism?” Isn’t checking considered to already look after mistakes? Thank you so much!

derodota

Hi, Rebecca, thank you for this helpful lesson, I did the quiz and got 90. The NO.8 “Chloe’s work requires concentration, accuracy, and patience.” Would you help me out with correct it to parallelism, I’m confused.

Yajing Wang

    Not sure why you got it wrong. Maybe you marked the wrong answer by mistake? I did the test just now and got it right.

    8. Chloe’s work requires concentration, accuracy, and patience.

    This sentence is parallel.

    Good for you that you care and are paying attention. All the best to you, Yajing Wang.

    Rebecca

Superb lessons for tonight! I got 90 and Flattered with my result. You’re such an angel in disguise. I never thought it would be as easy as that! salute to you Rebecca.

Hi Rebecca. I am just getting back to Engvid after a couple of months of busy work. I felt I needed to. Even though I can keep things that I have learned in mind, it is important to go over some topics to get a better, more accurate, and more consistent English.

Thanks for your work. Kind regards.
