Hi Rebecca,

The lesson is perfect. Can you please explain about “How you write a summary of an article” ? Also, How do you introduction and conclusion for a summary of an article?

Najool ^_^

Profile photo of Najool Najool

    A good summary would include an introduction and conclusion, unless you have been asked to write a very short summary. In that case, you could just include an introductory line and a concluding line.

    A summary should be shorter than the original and should cover the main points made in the article, while leaving out any examples and details.

    Hope this helps.

nguyen thi thu hien

Thanks to all for your feedback.

To emcee, the answer to your question is to review the present simple tense. I have a video lesson which can help you with this, on the difference between the present simple and present continuous tense.

Essentially, we add an extra “s” to the verb when we’re speaking in the third person singular form:

I want the job, but he wants the same job!
I like tea and he likes coffee.
I live in Canada. She lives in China.

Hope this helps! All the best to all with your English.

hi ,i learned a lot from your lesseons ,you know i’ll be a teacher hhh ,thank you so much ,these words aren’t enough to thank you ,you are really helpful , i have a problem about parafraph ,i can’t even write a good one ,and i can’t start write ,hope you will do a lesson for that ,about how to write a paragraph ,i’m stuck in here ,thanks before ,you are really amazing ,keep on !

Profile photo of arabic-english arabic-english

    One way to write a paragraph is to start with a topic sentence. This is a sentence which provides an overview of the main point of that paragraph. Don’t write too much information in your first sentence or you won’t know what to write in your paragraph. After that you could give an example. Then, explain the result or effect of that example. Lastly, end with a concluding sentence which summarizes what you have talked about.

    Here is a sample paragraph from a sample essay of mine from the TOEFL website:

    Personally, doing things we don’t enjoy builds character and helps us mature. For instance, when young people are in school, college and university, they need to spend a lot of time studying. In spite of being tempted to go out with friends and attend parties, those who have self-control and keep their priorities straight are the ones who get high grades. Through such life experiences people become stronger, wiser and more responsible.

Hi Rebecca,

you’re really a great teacher. Your explanations are precise and clear, and I do enjoy watching your videos very much. Thank you for your wonderful work.

I’d like to ask you something that doesn’t have directly anything to do with the current lesson, but it’s a question that I’ve been asking myself for quite a long time now, and since I haven’t found anyone who could answer it, I thought maybe you could help me, and tell me your opinion on the matter.

I’m a Bulgarian (had English in high school, passed the TOEFL and the SATs after finishing high school) who is currently studying in Germany.
When I was in Bulgaria, I had no problems with the foreign languages. I studied English, Russian, French and Spanish, and I knew them pretty well; never confused the one with the other or mixed several languages in my sentences.

Now that I’ve been in Germany for about 10 years, and have shifted my everyday speech to German, I’ve started having problems with the foreign languages. When I focus on English, I notice that my German gets worse, and I can’t find the words to build my sentences, and vice versa. I almost don’t speak Bulgarian anymore.

My only explanation about this problem, is that my native language in my native country worked as a central server, coordinating all the foreign languages I learned, and now when I’m in Germany, the “server” is missing, and there are no direct links between the different words in German and English, if you know what I mean.

So, I wonder if you know what I’m talking about, and if you know a way to overcome this problem. What is your opinion? It feels as if both languages are fighting for dominance :), but since I don’t let the one or the other prevail, it’s making me crazy not being able to find the words to express my thoughts in the language I want. If I let the one win, then the other one gets so bad, that I feel even ashamed to say I knew it.

Anyway, hope you have some ideas on the subject.

Thank you in advance, and thank you once again for the great video lessons.

setily

    I think you should consider:
    1) Definition of language (from Britannica) as a “System of conventional spoken or written symbols used by people in a shared culture to communicate with each other. A language both reflects and affects a culture’s way of thinking, and changes in a culture influence the development of its language.”
    2) knowledge of a language, in terms of ‘command’ and ‘use’.
    3) the 4 basic abilities: comprehend/express a written/spoken language.
    So, while the great part of one given language speakers could be proficient in the 4 basic abilities (see 3) for the most common *PHRASES*, not so many have a great ‘command’ and proper ‘use’ (see 2) of the same language (as defined at 1). Moreover, changing ways of thinking (see 1) is a slow process. There’s only one suggestion I can give you to “overcome this problem” (though I don’t think it’s a problem): try to acquire the same skills of language translators and interpreters.

    Mauro

    I understand your frustration. I would say your analysis is an interesting one, though I do not know exactly what is causing the problem. It would be a good question to put to a neurologist, though. If you do manage to speak to one, do let me know what he or she has to say. Sorry I cannot be of more help.

    My best to you in any case. By the way, your English is excellent.

Profile photo of Priya Priya

The way you teach is excellent because I learn immediately the lesson which is completely new and never heard about that topic, for example, paraphrasing. I would like to communicate by e-mail, if you don’t mind, for getting information regarding how to write English impressive and professionally. In English, there are many kinds of sentence structure, and we can write sentences in many different ways, for instance, (1)Subject verb object. (2)Object subject verb. However, I don’t have sound knowledge and when I am going to write, my sentences look like choppy, wordy and very simple. I am not satisfied with my writing because it is neither impressive nor interesting. Thank you very much for your excellent video lessons.

Hi Rebecca.I saw your videos, you are really good. Thanks guys for teaching us. Now, here is my question,
1)I want to know how and when the words could, would, will and can are used.
2)Even the words like do, does, did, doesn’t and don’t confuse me a lot.

This question is not related to this video but plz,if possible, could you teach us when to use those words.

Rebecca, thank you for this lesson. I hope you let me do small remark. I think there is a mistake in the quiz. In the question 1 the best answer is “On the whole, the feathers of the male bird are more striking than its female counterpart.” But computer says that third answer is right. Maybe it’s a technical error.

How are you? you are great a teachear your explaintion is very clear. I enjoyed your lessons.anyway I have problem in writing what I can do.

    To improve your writing, you need to write often and have a teacher who can check your writing. This is one skill you cannot improve alone. Of course you can consult books on English writing, but the most effective way is to find a good teacher to work with.

    My best wishes to you, Ad.

amine

Hi Ms.Thanks for your useful video.I really appreciate it.in the following question I chose first one but the correct answer is the second one.why is it like this?I think the second one changed the meaning and I was told that it is not correct to change the meaning of the sentence in paraphrasing.here, the sentence didn’t mention that why we should not borrow money from a friend so I suppose we shouldn’t mention any reason for that from our side.Am I write?thanks for your helps and also I did enjoy your personal websites.Regards

Choose the best paraphrase of the following: You shouldn’t borrow money from a friend.
-Lending money to a friend can destroy the relationship.
-Borrowing money from a friend should not be done.

sorry.the correct answer is first one and I chose the second one because in first one there is a reason and ….

Dear Rebecca,
Thank you very much for your lesson. Your voice are really lovely and extremely clear to me. Among the teachers here, I can understand each word you are saying. Perhaps my listening skill is still poor.

My question is Could you please tell me in which case we should use a modal perfect tense, especially in this example:
– A: Do you think she is coming to the party? She is very late.
– B: Yes, she is. She might have forgotten about it. Shall I call her to remind her?
Why don’t B just say: ”Perhaps she forgot about it”
If so, are there any differences between them? People tend to use simple sentences right?

Thank you very much indeed.
All the best to you.

Hi, anyone can help me paraphrase this story?

*** Brian Connell felt the first pains of a heart attack while shoveling snow a year ago. But he was only 38, so he shrugged it off.

“At 38, you’re not 21–you’re not bulletproof,” Connell said. “But you certainly don’t feel you are susceptible to a heart attack at that young age.”

A few weeks later, his neck and shoulders started throbbing, and he felt a strange rawness in his throat. This time, he went straight to the emergency room of the nearest hospital. “I asked the doctor, ‘Am I having a heart attack?’ She said, ‘Yes, you are.’

We are not allowed to copy others’ ideas word by word , but acceptable using different words and or structure to convey similar ideas, aren’t we ?
What is the best one among the three given? I prefer to select the very different, clear and precise one. I got 87, obviously , my teacher, Rebecca did not think so.

How about new ideas or theory from scientists ? Is this true that we need to quot them , or would tell the source after getting the permission if they are elicited ?

hi Rebecca your videos are so good, but I want to ask that if I can write an essay and you can correct it or score it. Because I am a SAT student and I need someone to guide me how to write an essay correctly.
