I had understood everything, thank u Rebecca 4 the free lesson. you are a great teacher. beside you have a wonderful smile.

Efrain Dominguez

    ‘I had understood everything’, is NOT past perfect, Efrain. Rebecca said it is simple but it is extremely difficult. If it were easy, you would not have written what you wrote. It is a very useful device but most grammar teachers cannot make it make sense. But keep trying, Efrain, you’ll get there.

    bradvines

      ‘I had understood everything’actually is a past perfect but Efrain didn’t use it properly.

      Salvatore

        thank you guys to let me know. so I have understood everything is right? so long n’ good bye.

        Efrain Dominguez

    Sorry Efrain maybe You have understood everything and not you had……. bye.

Thank you Rebecca! As always your lessons are very clear and useful.

Thanks a lot madam,before this lesson i couldn’t distinguish between present perfect and pas perfect, i was often use past simple to show past but after this lesson all the confusion has over, Engvid doing a very well job for those who feels shy to go language center because they think people will laugh on them, some of them due to hesitation & mostly doesn’t afford their fees. so that’s a awesome work… I’m thankful to the owner or the teachers indeed, Engvid became my habit if i don’t watch videos i can’t feel better….
Rebecca i have just a slightly confusion between present or past perfect so would you please explain it briefly to make sure about these tenses that I’m using correct or not,
and check is i wrote correct what are my mistakes I’ll be happy if you find my mistakes because in future i want to become a english grammer teacher so you know teacher should have a complete specialization in his field I’ll be waiting for your answer

Hi, Rebecca. Let me tell you that you are the best teacher at engvid.com or, at least, you are the one that explains better. I’m not telling you that the other teachers are not good teachers – in fact, all they are great teachers, but you are excellent. It’s impossible for us not to understand the subject when you explain it. You are the best. Thank you so much.

Daniel C Herculano

Your teaching style is very understandable, Rebecca. Can you increase your teaching on advance lessons?
Thanks.

Your teaching approach is very good Rebecca. Can you increase your lessons on advance English ?

Teacher Rebecca

I would like you to take a doubt:
Can I use the present perfect with the Past Perfect by writing or saying senteces like this:
“I had done a lot of homework when my sister has arrived today”?
Greeting from brazil and all the best.

Profile photo of dsilva179 dsilva179

    no you couldn’t use past perfect with present perfect that setance is wrong you made that ok bye.

    Aadil

    dsilva179, you better construct your sentence this way.

    I have done a lot of homework when my sister has arrived.

    Correct me if i’m wrong. 😊

I have a bachelors degree in computer and info. system engineering. Now, I want to live in Germany, so I applied for a Phd in German universities. Taha, my cousin had lived in Germany, so I called him to find out more about the culture and lifestyle there.

Correct me, if there is any mistake in the above sequence of sentences.

Hi Rebecca, Thanks for your work on this and other lessons!
Can I ask for you?
Can you please create a lesson or lessons where to explain where we use first, second and third form of verb (in what cases, with examples (for example – first form of verb we use in Present [I go to home…] or third form of verb we use in Present Perfect […], Pasive Voice [….], etc ….)).
This lesson would add an understanding of what is the three forms of the verb and where each we can use.
I think this will very helpful for people which learn English and learn that in English there are 3 form of verb – people at a go would understand where this we can use and where this is used.

Thank you very much Madam !

I am just confused between the present perfect and the past perfect. To my knowledge, the present perfect is used also to express an action that is performed before another one in the past. Thus, How can i guess which tense must be used in such situations.

Thank you in advance !

this is Tuan phan. in English, I could not figure out vowels differences between “t”, or “d”, or “s”, or “z” sounds. so I was usually in trouble while speaking English, likewise, I was never had “tolerated” on my English pronunciation.

Hi Rebacca,
Sometimes I get confused when to use past indefinite and when to use past perfect like. when when to use sentences like “I sent you a mail yesterday” and “I had mailed you yesterday”
If you could arrange a session on this this would be very helpful.

thanks rebecca. you made it so loud and clear by those simple lecture and explanation on when and how we should this past participle form of the verb. The word HAD plus the PAST PARTICIPLE OF THE VERB gave all the clarity.

callmejames

Hi Bek.
I got confused with “complete” and “had completed”.In Q3 and Q5 Its both “complete” form is the correct answer.But,isn’t it the participle form there meant to be “had + Participle ” form.
Thanks.
Your early response is much appreciated.

Rebecca, Talking about past tense, I have a question.
I always mistake about these phrases below. Which phrase is correct?

“I didn´t talk” or “I didn´t talked”

Thanks

Profile photo of andre84barros andre84barros

    Hi Andre. The correct sentence is “I didn’t talk”.

    Profile photo of mamoudouhawa mamoudouhawa

    Andre, o verbo auxiliar “do” fica com a forma no passado e o verbo principal fica no infinitivo.Portanto a resposta certa é:
    I didn’t talk

Dear Rebecca,

In your presentation on the Past Perfect Tense you used the example “When we arrived at the airport at 6PM we discovered that the plane had left at 5PM”.

Shouldn’t the Past Simple have been used in the object clause “that the plane had left at 5PM” (a fact in the Past relative to “discovered” is stated)?

Please, kindly explain the difference.

Also, I should like to use this opportunity to compliment you on your excellent delivery of every presentation/lesson.

Best regards,

6/6..Rebecca i have one question in my mind that if we use already with past perfect is it good to use or the tense itself covers that word e.g. “By the time i finished my essay, John had already completed writing his article” in this sentence i think past perfect covers the idea that the John completed his article before me so there is no use to write already? hope u understand my question

Dear Rebecca,

Thank you so much for this lesson.
Unbelievable, I was scared “When” and “How” to correct use “Past Perfect”.
Now, after your lesson, I find out – its very simple.
Thank you again, that you so Kind and very Wise Teacher that can explain easy, simple the way to understand English.

Thanks for the lesson; however, I have the following questions:

As we may already know, there are two activities that happened in the past, one before the another. But, do we have to use just the simple past and past perfect or can we use other tenses but with the same logic. In other words, can I say:

I was going to buy a flower when I had realized I did not have money or even I remembered that I had to buy a flower when I had been smelling some roses.

Well, I use to get confused using this tense however now I understand much better. although sometimes is difficult to use it in a conversation because I use to forget how using the regular and irregular verbs in past participle.
