    for the people who try to learn, impossible to understand what you mean.


      Yeah, I suppose you are right, but Mark understood everything and explained as well. Read and learn!


      Hi there,
      U know,everything is possible,except nothing!!
      Goodluck with ur English.


        can we communicate for increasing in English level

      I agree with you Tatyandra… Some people believe that writing this way they can appear more confident with the use of English…buy it only shows a low profile use of language…

      Profile photo of Perlamar Perlamar

    First expression 4 instance literally means FOR instance or FOR example. We have a lot of other similar expressions and all of them are based on homonyms or homophones. It is not spelled on the same way, but it is pronounced exactly the same. Sometimes they are spelled and pronounced the same. Other example would be: I don’t want 2 go there. In this case 2 replaces the word TO. And finally for word N I’m not sure, but I suppose it is an abbreviation for the word AND. All the best.


      The very 1st Hi,
      Then,I’m sure about everything I’ve written.I’ve got them from the net.
      We use these abbreviations in our comments n messages when we’re gonna write shorter.I agree with u,may b it’s not so simple 2 beginners 2 understand but anyway I’m sure.
      Now,for or four?Both r 4!!
      Goodluck with ur English.


    I’ve got the answer,
    That’s:” from A to Z “.
    Up me!

    I know what you meant, but I can’t think out what proverbs would be.

Dear a super teacher Rebecca ,
I swear my God that you ‘re doing a wonderful job this is a vital lesson should be learnt .In addition , understood and be watch out as well.
Therefore , I don’t know how to thank you for all lessons that you did for us .
Would you do me a favor which tips can be taken to increase enormously my advanced vocabularies if that possible .
thank you very much indeed.
Yours a poor student as long as you accept me please ,


    Thank you very much for your kind words. So glad engvid videos are helping you. You can improve your vocabulary by studying from an ESL Vocabulary book, by reading more, listening to shows and music and watching English movies. I wish you all the best and am sure you can do very well, since you seem to be a determined person. Keep on going!

Thanks a lot Rebecca. You’re so kind teacher. Lily from Brazil


It’s so easy to understand you and follow you! You’re trying to speak more slowly and clearly specially for students or you’re actually speaking this way in everyday life?
Thanks a lot for the lesson, Rebecca! That was one important piece of information! I’d love to see more grammar lesson, especially if it’s something difficult or challenging.


    All ESL teachers, including myself, speak a little more clearly when we are teaching.

    Thanks for watching and all the best to you.

hello madam,this is me astha from nepal.i like your teaching very much.although i am busy in my job i watch this and learn a lot.i have a speaking problem coz we dont use english language in our daily life but after 3 or 4 month i will be in usa.so that i am very nervous coz i cant speak well infront of other but i can understand all what they talk.i need a real conversation class to improve my fluency(two way communication).plz could u do anything for me.i will be very happy if u do something for me..bye and take care


    I am sure you will improve once you live and work in the States. You can also take Conversational English classes when you get there. In the meantime, watch American TV shows and sing along with the lyrics of English songs. All the best to you in your new life.

it is very useful, thank you!


Guys, if anyone is interested in speaking english by a msn call we can improve our english skills and pronunciation together. I was working in a bank a few years ago, I had many calls in english there, it really works!

Antonio San

Thanks for this interesting lesson.
Just a question Rebecca please. You said “we right who we are going to write the cheque to” You used “who” and not “whom”, why?
Thanks again


    Nowadays, “whom” is not used often in North American conversational English.

    All the best to you.

Dear Mrs Rebecca,
Could you tell that between the academic test and general training test which one is easier? and what is the advantage if i pass?


    I presume you are referring to the IELTS Academic and General tests. the speaking and listening sections are the same in both versions of the IELTS. However, the reading and writing sections are easier on the General IELTS. The General IELTS is used for immigration to Canada and Australia, and for certification purposes in some professions and some countries. The Academic IELTS is usually needed to get admission into a university where the language of instruction is English. All the best to you!

I got very important ideas on writing cheques thank you teacher a very interesting lesson


Dear Rebecca,
Next month I’m going to work on the ship for several months. Only one condition is to have adequate knowledge of english language, and thanks to you and teachers on EngVid, I will realize my goal. If I hadn’t watched your lessons, I wouldn’t have had any chance.
I’d like to beg you for one favour. PLEASE do a lesson on ship terms, I know enough, but it would be great to learn it from you.
Happy New Year to you, all the best in 2012!!!


    I am glad we were able to help you and I wish you the very best with your new job. I am sure the best place for you to learn ship vocabulary is on the job itself! Have a successful and happy 2012.

wht is a difference between present perfect continous and past tense?

Profile photo of shana33 shana33

    I have been watching this move for the past 2 hours.

    This sentence above, in the present perfect tense, means that you started watching in the past and are still watching now, so it includes the past and the present.

    I watched this move 2 hours ago.

    This sentence above, in the Past Simple tense, means that you watched the move then, 2 hours ago and finished watching it. You are not watching anymore. So the past simple tense is used to talk about actions that are finished in the past and do not continue into the present.

    Please check the Resources section of our website where I have written an explanation of all the tenses, with examples. Here’s the link:


    Hope this helps you! My best to you, Shana!

I still think that “fourty” is a right spell.


    Sorry! “Forty” is the right spelling.

dear madom i have problem in english listening idon,t understand whrn i am hearing english news or watch english movies what should i do to understand


    Try to find a book that teaches you English Listening skills. Start at the lowest level necessary for you to understand. Never worry about that because you will always go up and forward as you learn more. You could also sing along to English songs when you have the lyrics, to get used to the accents. Also, watch movies with subtitles to connect the voices with the words. My best wishes to you.

Hi Rebecca. Could you do an introduction of Past Prefect and compare it to other tenses? Thank you. =)

Hi, Rebecca!
First, I would like to thank you for the helpful and interesting (as usual) video!

I would like to clarify a moment from the moovie: at 12:24 (mm:ss) of the video timeline you said “… another lesson that I have recorded earlier…”. So, the question is whether native speakers say this way often? If I were in the same situation, I would use the Past Simple tense instead of the Present Perfect because a moment from the past is indicated (“earlier” in our case).
Would you please comment this case as I am really confused? :)
Rebecca, thank you very much in advance!


    You’re right. It should be as you said. Thanks for all your interest and my best wishes to you, sailor.

HI dear teacher could you pls explain how to write a void cheque? thank you for your help.

adam 41

    In North America, you usually write ——VOID—– in large capital letters diagonally through the front of the cheque, with the lines at the side of the word VOID, going all the way to the sides of the cheque.

    Hope this helps, Adam. My best to you.

Hi Rebecca, thank u for the knowledge but i am confused please help me, regarding with the question “You should start the writing of the check in number.” My answer is far right and it was wrong, why? It’s because the question is.. writing of the check in number not writing of the check in words. Also can i use the word spelled cheque, is this right? Kindly explain, many thanks!
