Dear Rebecca:
Thank you so much for your outstanding videos. I would like to ask you about QUESTION 9 of the quiz. I already know that it should be said “What happened?” but… could you explain me why we don’t say “What did happen?”

I guess I understood how does it work the verb auxiliary (do) with simple tenses and the right way to pronounce the past regular verbs.
Thanks a lot.

Hello Rebecca hi everyone,
it’s been awhile since your last tense lesson.
How’ve you been doing? The things been upside down in this end but i’m getting by.
I took the quiz before watching the video and i got: 10/10. I’m jubilant.
Although, i’m going to watch the video. It’ll improve my current skills and consolidate knowledge.
I’m looking forward to next lesson about tenses.
Take care ans stay out of troubles.
Talk soon.
Bye <3

you are the best eng teacher i have ever seen

Saturday, February 8th 2020

Rebecca thank you for the lesson but I didn’t understand case 9. I thought it will be “`What did happen”? With hard work, I brought the idea to

Saturday, February 8th 2020

    The correct is to say: “What did it happen?” You need the subject, so What did happen? is incorrect.

    Monday, February 10th 2020

      Sorry, I made a mistake because as happen isn’t a transitive verb, it cannot take an object.

      Monday, February 10th 2020

    Hi there.
    When we ask about the subject of a setence we don’t need did, do or does:
    Sara came. ( Who came?)
    A car accident happened . ( What happened?)
    She helped the old man. ( Who helped the old man?) The best

Monday, March 16th 2020

Thanks for your hard work, I have a question.
What does the past simple tense of “is/are” mean?
For example, I went to a beach. The coastline was very scenic.
Does “The coastline was very scenic” mean that it is not scenic anymore?

If the coastline still is scenic, is it right to use the past tense?

Hi Rebecca, Thank you so much for the lessons it helps so much. I have a question about #

9. Did you hear the news this morning? What _happen_?

would be my answer based on the video’s instructions. can you explain why it goes to the past tense instead of the base form?

Thank you

Sunday, May 17th 2020

    assume it is noon time and i am person and i am asking you about news had broadcast in morning. my question would be Did you hear the news this morning? and you also going to say next. what happened? instead of what happen? it is not present simple.

I found you on youtube and I love the way you teach

Tuesday, July 21st 2020

Thank you so much for the wonderful lesson it’s really helped me to understand the past tense…

Thursday, July 23rd 2020

I got hundred percent!

Friday, July 31st 2020

Thanks Rebeca for the class, you explain very clear past simple.
I have some questions for example in the following example:
Did you read the book I gave you? My doubt is about “I gave you”, because when I do a question in past all the sentence have to do in past except the verb (in this case read)?. Why we don´t use for example “Did you read the book I give you?”

Monday, August 3rd 2020

Rebecca thank you: I didn´t know this tense so well as I do now! Bravo
