Dear Ms. Rebecca,

How to differentiate regular verb and irregular verb.



    It’s a little bit backwards. You can know the difference between a regular and irregular verb from the ending. Regular verbs add -ed or just -d in the past tense form but irregular verbs take other forms.

    For example, regular verbs:
    brush – brushed, jump – jumped, dance – danced

    Irregular verbs, see – saw, go – went, put – put, break – broke

    Hope this helps. All the best to you!

Thanks, Rebecca! This topic is very important. I have been studied a lot and I particulary think that hardest part is a memorise all regular and irregular verbs.
A strong hug for you

gud lesson rebeeca,
is this is the only use of present perfect tense i mean have you ever…..?


    No, this is just one way to start using the present perfect tense easily and immediately.
    Like any tense in English, you can use the present perfect in positive or affirmative sentences, in negative sentences, or in questions such as the ones I have spoken about in the lesson.

    For example,

    Positive – I have lived here for 5 years.
    Negative – I have not finished my homework.
    Question – Have you done the laundry yet?

    Please refer to a grammar book for a full explanation. All the best to you.

Thank you a a lot.
I hope that I can improve myself with your lesson.


Thank you Rebecca for the class. It is a subject we really used a lot in conversations and sometimes we do not know how to use. I am from Brazil, but i live in the USA, so for me it is great learn more useful questions and answers with the present perfect. Thank you!!! :)


Rebecca all what I know I can thank to you.


Oh, now I understand. Thank you so much!

Hi Rebecca,
Thank for your lesson.
could you tell me which one is correct?
He’s just went out.or
He’s just gone out.


    The second one. However there are two ways to show that an action was complete a few minutes earlier by using just.In American English, people use just with the past but in British English, people use have just with the past participle instead. I mean you can use either just + past or have + just + past participle. In this case you can say: He’s just gone out ( He has just gone out) or He just went out.

Can u explain the all condition of the perfect tens , please ..
Thang u again ..


Hi Rebecca, just a question: why you use to Brazil instead of in when he answer I’ve been to Bazil, we could use I’ve been in Brazil…
Thanks in advance.


    “I’ve been to Brazil” generally means you have visited that place. “To” is the correct preposition to use when talking about having been somewhere.

    It’s like:
    I’ve been to a Moody Blues concert.

    This also means you have attended the event.

    People will understand if you use the preposition “in Brazil”, but “to Brazil” is the correct version.

    My best wishes to you, Pedro.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

      ma’am ,according to your video the last sentence , I’ve been to Brazil.what is my Q. that he went to Brazil now he returned back….Don’t he need to tell that sentence in either simple past or past perfect because the time and action both finished.


wow this is fantastic

thank you very much teacher Rebecca,you know i’m not good speaking English, i wan’t to improve to speak in English.where do i start?


8/8 thanks for the lesson :D!


thank you so much Rebecca,i’m Jonathan Guevarra,currently working in K.S.A here in Riyadh.after my worked finish every night i’m always watching your lessons. because, i want to improve to speak in English.especially how use in correct grammar.your immediately response will highly appreciate thank you!


    Thanks for your feedback Jonathan. There are so many ways to improve your English skills, indirectly and directly. Indirectly, you can try to read, listen, write, speak and study as much English as possible whenever you have a chance. The direct way is to work with a private teacher or join a class where you will not only have a chance to speak but also to be corrected and to understand the rules and practices of correct English. Actually, engvid is like having several private teachers giving you mini lessons on various important aspects of speaking English. I wish you all the best, Jonathan.

I noticed that we must learn the irregular verbs in order to speak present perfect tense correctly. Don’t disregard the past participle form of Verbs.

Profile photo of karabugul karabugul

    Yes, that’s true, but you can also form the present perfect with the regular verbs:

    Have you finished your homework?
    Have you brushed your teeth?
    Have you washed your hands?

    These are all regular verbs. Knowing the third form of the past participles of irregular verbs allows you to also use the irregular verbs in conversation, which is very helpful.

    My best wishes to you.

Hi rebecca, thank you very much for your clear explanations. However I have one question. In the example: He’s gone to Brazil. The abreviation He’s means He is gone or He has gone???
I’m looking forward to your response


What is the difference?

I have lived in India.
I have been in India.



    I have lived in India.

    This means that you stayed there for some length of time.

    I have been to India.

    This means that you visited India, probably for a short time.

    All the best to you, Rinku.

    Profile photo of Rebecca Rebecca

      this is correct question and it’s really perfect explanation. as I know that I had lived there for a definite period to use “had”. But if we had gone to a visit then we use present perfect tense have/ has + V3. could I understand correctly. My best wishes to you, Rebeca.

Dear Rebecca,
You are one of the best English teachers that I’ve ever known.
Thank you and best wishes,


These videos are really useful. But quizzes are so simple!! always 100


Hi Rebecca, I’m from Brazil.
I agree with you when you said that present perfect makes studests nervous.
Thank you very much for this lesson. I watched this video twice and I found your tips useful, because I didn’t know that EVEN (in Have you ever…) meant “even once in your life”, and the difference between “is gone” and “have been”. It changes the idea I had in my mind about this topic.
Thank you very much, you’re such a nice teacher. I hope you post more helpful videos like this one.
Thank you.

I’m totally confused, and this tense really driving me crazy.
I don’t know when to use present perfect or past tense when talking about things I did in the past.

Hello Mr.Shas! This is selvi! The difference between the two sentences are, Have you washed your hands? this means that you ask in present perfect tense.For example, if u r going to eat now, and the second one is Did you wash your hands?this means that u ask in past tense,which means that, did you wash your hands yesterday? or in the Morning, or every action finished in the last minute. Thank you sir! Gud luck to you! Have a great day!

Hi Rebecca thanks again for another useful lesson. I understand pretty much of the whole lesson but there was something got me confused and I hope you can answer me. When you were explaining the phase of “long time no see”, you used “someone” instead of anyone. Although I know “someone” is definitely correct but the reason I’m confused is because I remember on your other lesson, you said “someone” is used in positive form and”anyone” is used in negative form and in questions. I know English is full of exceptions. Is this one of them? I really hope you can understand what I’m trying to say here as I know my question may be a little confusing. Thank you!
