PAST PERFECT TENSE(“I had worked”)? Do you know this advanced tense can help you talk about the past in a special way? In this English grammar class, I’ll teach you when to use this tense, how to use it, and what mistakes to avoid. You will learn: structure, usage, pronunciation, spelling, contractions, questions, short answers, past participles, and irregular verbs. We’ll go forward systematically and practice together, so you understand fully. This class is part of the engVid program on ALL the English verb tenses, designed to take your English to a higher level for career growth or academic success on English exams like the IELTS or TOEFL. The next class in this series compares the past simple and past perfect tenses.

Dear Ms. Rebecca, Thanks for your video on COVID-19. It’s a fresh topic that I initiated translating it into Arabic after some briefing to focus on the advanced level, I skipped some simple vocabularies and shortened the video to become 12 minutes. Is there any licence required before posting it on youtube?

Please give us a detailed lesson about :
The more I complain, the more laugh.
The more we write, the happier our tutor becomes.
What is the rule of this lesson?
Where is the subject put in the clauses?
Where is the verb put in the clauses?
Where is the comparative adjective put in the clauses?
Is the article “the” necessarry in the two clauses?
We need more about this lesson and more and more examples.
In the first example above why the subject disappeared in the second clause?
Is the word “more” necessary in this rule?
In the second example above, we notice there is no “more” in the second clause.
We, students, need a detailed lesson about this topic.

Isn’t that to use past perfect tense needs two incidents that happened in the past, but your example is given in the video “I had returned the book already” is just one. :)
This topic shouldn’t be hard however sometimes it is difficult when we use past perfect tense and would is the past tense of will using it with contraction is when sometimes the problems come out :(

Thank you so very much, for the opportunity to study with you. This course – the “past-perfect course”, has been exceptionally useful for me.
