Friday, May 8th 2020

It’s very helpful!

Friday, May 8th 2020

Thank you, I understood the difference between the perfect present and the past, the first refers to start something in the past and perhaps continued later, the past only responds that something happened in the past, an end in the past

Thank you, it’s really helpful.

Thursday, May 14th 2020

Thank you, Rebecca. Your video is amazing. You explained so well to differentiate between the simple past tense and present perfect tense. I believe these are so confusing for most ESL students, but you explained these so well in this video. I like your examples and tips at the end of the video. They are so helpful.

Would you mind to make more videos of preposition series as well? I think that is another challenging section for ESL students to learn perfect grammar.

Once again, thank you so much :)

Rebecca is the Best Teacher.

The best teacher in the earth .thanks million

Thank you for your support, best wishes

Hi everyone,
i always struggle with these tenses. I know exactly how they are built.
However i face quite some problems using them especially in speaking. But this lesson helped me utterly.
I think the general take away for everyone who has the problems that i have should be:
Past Simple -> focus past,
Present Perfect -> focus now, What are the consequnces of this action?
I hope i undestand it correctly.
For example:
A:Have you watched the video?
B:Yes, i have.
A:What do you think about this lesson? Did you learn something interesting?
(So, i assume that. Someone have seen the video that means they are well versed with video. I can ask what they think about it. )

Am i right? Can anyone confirm it?

I wish you all the best in learning English.
Have a super sparkly day.

Monday, May 18th 2020

Hello Rbbecca, you are my favorite teacher.

Thank you for the good grammar lesson. I learned this part of grammar when I was a student at school by learning from teachers and books. But I haven’t spoken that in real conversation. This lesson helped me refreshing my memory and building up my basic in English. It’s always a happy classroom experience because I graduated school long long time ago. Thanks engVid teachers. I admire you all.
