Hello, have you ever considered make the lists with numbers and also with the date?. It is hard to follow a guide with to many lessons, I don’t know which is new or old. Maybe you can do groups of topics. Regards Ginger from CR.

    On engvid, you will find lessons grouped by category and on my youtube channel, you will find playlists of various subject areas, including the verb tenses in order. All the best to you, Ginger.

Hey, Rebecca.thank you for teached me all of this tenses. and let me ask you something if you can. Can i got your video lecture notes in pdf? especially, you had teached us about present perfect ,past present,present prefect progressive and past prefect contniuses tense.

Friday, June 12th 2020

Hi everyone,
as always extremely useful lesson. I still wait for these lesson about advanced future tenses.
Before i watched the video I had taken the quiz and I got 8/9. I made a little mistake in the last question. I had always thought a gerund of “participate” contains with double 2 before I saw the answers. Thanks to you I know I was wrong.
Please, correct me if I used “Past Perfect” in my sentences incorrectly.

I wish all the best for everyone who reads that comment.

I had a better understanding on spelling changes. When we change -ie to -y. I watched the other lessons in which this is explained as well, but in this time, in exactly this point, it was more clear.
Thank you Mrs Rebecca.

Tuesday, June 16th 2020

Somebody please help me.
In question 9 , how could we be sure that they(her parents) aren’t saving money for her anymore ?

Wednesday, June 17th 2020

    Please see my answer to Janio below. All the best to you.

    Monday, June 22nd 2020

Thank you!

Wednesday, June 17th 2020

I enjoy a lot every class with teacher Rebecca. She explains in carefull and clear way. My respects to her.

Wednesday, June 17th 2020

I’m unable to get a hang of ‘had’ word while communicating. When I’m able to speak same sentence by using past simple or present prefect, I really don’t understand the use of this tense.

Thursday, June 18th 2020

I really admire your laughing,pls keep it forever and all the best with your job.

Thursday, June 18th 2020

Thank you Rebecca for a very useful lesson! I got 10 correct out of 10. You explain everything in such a clear way. It’s so obvious you do what you love. Keep on and all the best!

Thank you so much!!!!

Thursday, June 18th 2020

Thank you :)

Thursday, June 18th 2020

I love Rebbeca, because her my english getting better.

Friday, June 19th 2020

Good class. But in the question 9, it´s not possible to know if they had been stopping save money. Could you explain it?

Friday, June 19th 2020

    The first is the only correct answer, as shown, because you cannot say “Her parents HAS been saving” or “Her parents HAS saved.” Since the word parents is plural, you would have had to say: Her parents have been saving” or “Her parents have saved”, but these options were not given. Hope this helps to clarify your question. All the best to you!

    Monday, June 22nd 2020

      Touché. Thank you!!

      Saturday, June 27th 2020

90% 10 th wrong participating

Saturday, June 27th 2020

mam mam where is future perfect continuous ,future perfect?you had been uploading only one video on march 2nd simple future tense .

Saturday, June 27th 2020

Thank you Mam. I got 90% mark on the quiz. You have given a clear idea about past perfect tenses. I understand theoretically when to use past perfect continuous. But when i start to speak, i could not use perfect tenses in general. How to overcome this difficulty?

Thursday, July 2nd 2020

Thanks Rebecca.

Friday, July 3rd 2020

This Lesson is very useful, thank you so much for your efforts with us .

Friday, July 3rd 2020

Hi, Rebecca! Your lesson is very clear and well-structured, but I can’t get the difference between Past Continuous…Why we could say: Sarah was studying all day.. and: It had been snowing all week.. Do you have a lesson about that difference?

Saturday, July 4th 2020

10/10 , i like this listen

Monday, July 6th 2020

Her parents __________ money for her education ever since she was born.
had been saving
has been saving

In this question,why we can’t use ‘has been saving’? We don’t know if the parents stopped saving money.Maybe they’re still saving?

Monday, July 6th 2020

    I think “Has” is used to present perfect when the subject is singular, but in this lesson has explained about past perfect continuous, so we use “had” whether singular or plural the subject. I hope this comment would help you.

    Wednesday, July 8th 2020

Thank you very much Rebecca for the lesson. A little bit every day, her classes are very useful.

Monday, July 6th 2020

I like her classes because they are pleasant, clear, and concise. Thank you very much, teacher, Rebecca.

Monday, July 6th 2020

I had been watching you on YouTube before i watched you on this site. Thank you anyway cause i found such a beautiful teacher like you.

Wednesday, July 8th 2020
