      Hi Mrs Rebecca, thank you so much for your interesting video, i have one question, you said : When did you lose your job? (Past simple) right? so can’t we say as well: When have you lost your job?(presnet perfect)

      Xavi

        i think, you could say : how long have you been out of work.

        moh49

Rose from (Barcelona)

Rose

When did she have baby ?when did you complete your phd?the answer should be pass simple tense instead of present simple or present perfect tense,please correct me if I am wrong.

Cuong ta

    Great lesson. I also noticed these mistakes in the quiz. The answers should have been :past tense instead of present tense. But this quiz only proves that nobody is perfect, doesn’t it

    danip

Hello teachers, I am from Brazil and i am learning English. I moved to USA a couple of days ago and i would like to know if you guys give some private classes through skype. If the answer is yes, i am interested. Contact me please. Congratulations for the site, it is great.

Hi Rebecca, are you sure that your the test is correct?
I can’t understand

If I right understand it is Past Simple.
Why the answer contain only Present tense.

Antonella

There are two mistakes at the Q2 and Q3 in the Quiz:

2. How long have you been in England?

Present Simple -> This one =]
Present Perfect

3. When did she have the baby?

Present Simple -> This one =]
Present Perfect

Hope you will fix it!

sunanda

    Yes, although grammar is no longer tested directly on the TOEFL IBT, it is tested indirectly in the speaking and writing parts of the test. So make sure you review all the necessary grammar. Many of the engvid lessons should help you. All the best to you.

    Rebecca

    TOEFL.. is the hardest thing in our planet, its even more harder than understanding women. i’ll pray for you.

GREAT AND VERY IMPORTANT LESSON ABOUT PAST SIMPLE AND PRESENT PERFECT THANK YOU MISS REBECA

mghc618

Thank you for correction for the answer of question3 and 4.We sometimes an error.

Cuong ta

I have a question. If I want to know where my friend has gone for 2 year and now he comes back. which sentences should I ask? Where did you go? or.. Where have you gone?

PAO

    you can say. where have you been so long.
    this is just i am trying if it is wrong please correct it i am also learner.

    padmarai

      thanks a lot

      PAO

    Yes, padmarai is right. The best question would probably be “Where have you been?” or some variation of that, such as “Where have you been all this time?” or “Where have you been for the past 2 years?”.

    You could not say “Where have you gone?” because your friend has already come back.

    I hope this helps you. All the best with your English and thanks to padmarai for offering to help.

    Rebecca

thanks u so much!

Trung béo

You are the best! Thank you!

    Rebecca

Hi teachers i am Narjice from Morocco,thank you a lot for this website and for all lessons, i write this letter because i have a confusing between start and begin what is the diffrece please?

narjice

    There is almost no difference between these two words so feel free to use whichever one you like without worrying too much.

    The word “begin” is perhaps a little more formal than the word “start”. That’s all.

    My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Thank you very much Rebecca. That’s was a new good lesson. I wish all the best for you! See you soon!

catamari

Thank you for lesson. :)

A bit of practice:

‘When did she have a baby?’

I suppose we can tell also: ‘When did she get a baby?’

‘She got the baby 3 months ago.’

Or, I suppose, we could tell:

‘It’s 3 moths now she has become mother.’

sasha11

    Actually, it would be incorrect to use the expression, “get a baby” if the woman gave birth to the child herself. In this normal context, it is correct to say she had a baby.
    For example,
    She had a baby boy three months ago.

    The only exception I can think of is if the child had been adopted; then you could say “She got the baby three months ago.” or “She succeeded in getting the baby three months ago.” or something similar.

    Al the best with your English, Sasha.

    Rebecca

Rebeca,
How long have you been teaching english?
It looks like you have a very long experience.
Thank you, you are great.

Marcos

i think this video was interesting

fethe

i think this video was useful to understand the quiz. i’m happy 10/10 yeahhh!

fethe

This is a great style of presenting two confusing tenses upfront. this is really a nice way of learning tense when keep up front and actually comparing when to use when.

I request you to please provide understand about other tenses as well in same manner.

I am learning English but I really get confused when you need to switch from one tense to another during conversation.
If you provide such online training i am ready to pay as well. Please let me know

Davinder K

    I do not teach online at this time. Thank you for your interest and feedback and will pass your message on to the other teachers. My best wishes to you, Davinder.

    Rebecca

can u give me reply for that what i message u for u pleaseee Rebecca.i message u about my improvement of grammer

sunanda

    Not sure what your message was. My best to you, in any case, Sunanda.

    Rebecca

thank alot for lesson.
can you tell that uses in the sentence?

zahide

the lessons ae very interesting, but i got a doubt….
after “been” we supouse “to” put to and
you put “in”
how long have you been in toronto?
it must be how long have you been to toronto, or i’m wrong?
Reveca please clear my doubts
greets

julio

    I think you might be confusing two different questions:

    How long have you been in Toronto?

    Here, we are asking someone how long they have lived in Toronto, or how much time they have spent there.

    You could also ask,

    Have you ever been to Toronto?

    This time the preposition changes, as you can see, and this is used to ask if the person has ever visited Toronto.

    Prepositions need a lot of review and practice, so it’s good you asked. My best wishes to you, Julio.

    Rebecca

hahahaha! thanks you so much Teacher Revecca thanks for the knowledge and great idea…10/10 yeeeheeee…GBU….

thanks a lot guys you really helps me to understand english rules because you make it in a easier way.

claudia

Tnx a million Rebecca. I’m always looking for this kind of subject. :)

willbraga

Hi, very interesting, very helpful.
thanks a lot.

abuseifein

Hi, I have a question if you can help me!
when you say in example “how long have you been employed” is the guy still working in present time or not?
thank you.

branichel

    Yes, good question. I know it sounds like this should be in the past, but in fact we can ask this question when the person is still working, in the present.

    In fact, you could say,

    Have long have you worked here? (Present Perfect)
    or
    How long have you been working here? (Present Perfect Continuous)

    All the best to you.

    Rebecca

Hi Rebeca, I really like your lesson about past tense and present perfect. Verry interesting lesson. However,some of your examples make me confuse because some word end of -ed and some is not using -ed, for example When did you get married, when did you graduate, when did you get engaged, when did you get the job?
Appreciate very much if you could explain again about this matter mentioned above.

Thanks.
Cecilia.

Cecilia

    Some verbs are used on their own such as to graduate, so in the past tense we say:

    He graduated. (positive sentence)
    He didn't graduate. (negative sentence)
    Did he graduate? (question)

    Yet, there are other expressions (which require a helper verb) that must be used as a whole, such as:

    to get married
    to get engaged
    to be worried

    The word that changes here is the verb get or the verb to be and not the word married or engaged or worried.

    He gets married every 10 years! (present simple)
    He is getting married. (present continuous)
    He got married last month. (past simple)

    You see that the word married did not change in the above examples. Hope this helps. My best wishes to you, Cecilia.

    Rebecca

      you explain clearly, so everyone can understand what you say and what you mean .

      nguyenthihiep

thanks Rebecca I scored it 10/10. nice video and you’re the wonderful teacher in the world .Although the quiz was easy but OOKKEE:)

ozderozmen

Hi, Rebecca
My name is Lillian and I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy your lesson and appreciated. I have a question that I hope you would answer. Sometimes, large corporations-such as Mcdonald and Starbucks, lend their name to a small business owner and collect license fee? or whatever you call,How do you call that type of business? The business that is not directly managed by the corporation but steet using the name. Thank you for your time and concideration.

lleeime

    I am not sure exactly what you are referring to, but maybe the word you are looking for is “to franchise”. Check in the dictionary whether that is what you had in mind. Another related word is “to sponsor”, but I think you are looking for the first word. My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Ms. Rebecca, if I said “Since when are you married?”, would it be wrong?

Fernando

    Fernando, it would be better to say:

    How long have you been married?
    or
    When did you get married?
    or
    How long ago did you get married?

    Hope this helps! My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Hello Rebecca, could you explain the difference between HAVE YOU GOT, HAVE YOU and DO YOU HAVE, please?

Ellie

    In North America, we use “do you have” rather than “have you”, which is more British English. We do use “have you got”, but usually in more casual conversations.

    So if you want to use an expression that is clear and familiar all over the world, I would choose “do you have”. All the best to you, Ellie.

    Rebecca

Fantastic madam!

    You are not alone in struggling with these tenses, so don’t feel bad. Engvid has many video lessons on tenses which could help you, and you should also work through a very good grammar book till you understand when and how to use each tense. My best wishes to you.

vilma55

Thanks Rebecca. I understand a now. Thank you very much again from NZ!

Luna

Hello Rebecca! Great lesson, but could you explain the difference between Present Perfect and Present Perfect continuous… thanks!

elimy89

    hello Elimy
    Present Perfect:i have been in France several times.(that means you were in France for few times but now you are in your state and it exists the probability to visit it again in the future)
    Present Perfect Continuous.I have been living in Russia since i ever remember(that means you live in Russia since you were borned you havent left it yet)
    Present Perfect Continuous is used with since and for.try to remember these
    For example.i have been learning english for 10 years.That means you started the action in the past it still continue and it will continue

    Present Perfect is used often with these prepositions
    several times-i have been in Japan several times
    already-i have already read the book
    yet-i havent eaten yet
    just-i have just come home

    anyway dont worry and dont focus your mind on a single tense because you will get confused

    when you want to ask people questions using the present perfect you have to think about experiences
    for example:have you ever eaten mushrooms?
    have you every been in Austria?
    have you already eaten?

    i hope i helped you.
    try to ask teachers and they will answere to you
    have a nice day

    marius1989

      have you ever been in Austria*

      marius1989

        they will answer*

        marius1989

          Hello marius1989! Thank you for your time! very good explanation!

          elimy89

          your welcome Elimy i hope i helped you me too i had really problems with those tenses lol

          marius1989

          i forgot to say that present perfect continues can be used as a reproach for example teacher says:how many times i have been telling you to study?how many times i have been telling you to be attentive in the classroom?
          or it can be used also to mark the action to show what you did all day for example:i have been studying english all day.that means this is the only thing you did
          i have been shopping all day for example etc
          also to be more accurate when you use the present perfect continuous.the action starts in the past and continuous after now for example
          i have been waiting for him since 9 am that means you started to wait him you are waiting you will wait.so is an action wich wasnt interrupted.
          to learn it better try to use interrogative form of both tenses and then you will understand them better but it will be easy.
          Good luck:)i am sorry i cant explain you better

          marius1989

          Dear Marius, thank you so much!! you’re really helped me

alberto117

Hello rebecca mam,
Thank you for this very important video lesson.
It has cleared my doubts regarding usage of present perfect and past simple, but I get confused between the verb pairs like WILL and WOULD,CAN and COULD and their usage.Is the usage of these verbs confined by tenses?, or can they can be used interchangeably? or Has it got something to do with politeness?
Could you please post a lesson on aforementioned things? It will be really helpful for confused students like me.
Regards,
jaykadam9

Hi Miss Rebecca. Could you please give other more examples beside “How long” .Please give some samples of simple statements too not only the interrogative sentences . And lastly, If possible please put emphasis also on the correct way of answering all the perfect Tenses. My apology for asking too much but i would truly appreciate if you could explain making a new video because all 3 perfect tenses are too confusing.Thanks

Thanks for this vid.
‘When’ could not be used with Present Perfect, could it?
Is Present Perfect Continuous used to express the meaning for temporary conditions?
How long have you worked here?
How long have you been working here?
Is there any vid about Future Perfect tense on EngVid?
Thank you for presenting complecated English grammar in such a simple way :)

jag

Thanks for your very clear explanation, but I was not achieved to get the differences between “the last/next week/day/month etc.” and ” last/next week/day etc.”
My question ;Can using of “the ” article determinater of tense? Some books remark that if we use ” the ” tense must be simple past ; if not use article tense perfect .
Thanks in advance for your helps

Hi
I have few doubts
1. What is different between
” I have done that task” And “I did that task”

2. “what did you said?” , “Did you got that concept ?” are these correct sentences ? Which is the tense of these sentences, when should we you this kinda tense ?

3 some time we use “do” or “did” in sentences
E.g what did you say ? Can we say it as what you said ? If yes then in which case we should use do and did ?

Please reply

Hello, Mrs. Rebecca.
I’ve just read an exact from “A Custom House Icident”, so I’m a little confused. There is the following sentence:
I have often wondered whether she …and so on
Why is there the Present Perfect Tense with often?
Best wishes, gustav2

gustav2

    coz often is habit something happened in the past but it still continue, maybe it will happened again tomorrow or today, and that is why we use present perfect

Rebecca, I’m Brazilian and I speak the Portuguese Language, which is very different.

In the Portuguese language which is spoken in Portugal they use the Present Perfect A Lot.
“Tenho estado a trabalhar há horas.”
” I have worked for hours.”

And they also have the Present Perfect Continuous:

” I have been working for hours.”
but here we have a problem because we don’t use
it the way the Portuguese do in Portugal.

We use a Present tense + gerund.

“Estou trabalhando há horas.”
Which translated into English is exactly:

” I have been working for hours.”

So, we have this tense that,although spoken
wrongly in Brazil, makes it easier for us in Brazil to understand these two English tenses.

I think it’s the same as in American English.

They the use Present Perfect: I have lost my keys.”
Have you seen them?”

or Past Simple : I lost my keys. Did you see
them?”

I prefer to use the Present Perfect rather than
use the Past Simple.
It sounds better!

The Portuguese language is beautiful, and has
a vast vocabulary, but the thing is Brazilians
in general, don’t like to study our Language.

It’s difficult, of course, but it’s worthy
studying it.

Sorry for having written so much!

I’ll be very happy if you can answer me. Tkx a lot!

Dear Rebecca Mam,
I got 10 out of 10 but I have some doubts in it.

The sentence “When did she have the baby” can be asked as, When did she had/has the baby.

Similarly the sentence “How long has she lived in India” can be asked as, How long she have lived in India

Itood was very good explanation. I have understood this meaning and i hope i did not forget about this topics.

HENDRIKRIWU

it was very good explanation.

HENDRIKRIWU

Dear Rebecca,

I’ve got a question.

I want to know why the time is not important when we use the present perfect.

Why can’t I say “I’ve been to the U.S.A in 2010.” ?

It is a life experience that started and ended in the past and at the same time it is related to the present time in someway. However, I want to specify the moment.

Let’s consider this situation:

A: We are going to the U.S.A next Friday.
B: I have been to Uncle Sam’s Country in 2010.

My trip is an event which started and ended in the past (finished time), but it is connected to the present (unfinished time), because the elocutionist believes that this event is relevant to the moment of focus.

Thank you very much in advance.

Sincerely,
Fernando

I need help to understand the below sentence which i got wrong in the Quiz.

How long has she lived in India?

Actually i am unable to understand how it could be present perfect. I suspect that the inquiry is about someone who lived in India for a duration in past, but not living currently. Please correct my understanding.

Hi Rebecca, Thank you for your lesson about Past Simple and Present Perfect Tense.

This video answered My question about Present Perfect Progressive Tense for “Marry” in Emma lesson
But, still I have some trouble on using both Present Perfect and Present Perfect Progressive,

The formula I got from Benjamin Vid and Emma Vid are:
Present Perfect = Subject + Has/Have + P.P
Present Perfect Progressive = Subject + Has/Have + Been + V-ing

But I saw some samples in your video that “Has/Have Been + P.P”

Can you please explain? I am quite confuse about the formula.

Thank you Rebecca.
