Hi, Rebecca, what a great teacher you are,,

Elmer Merino

    why are you joking

    ssikha

      Very useful and practical expression to express our reactions to bad/good news.

      The quiz also provides further examples on how to use this pattern:

      What an amazing experience it was to take the quiz and learn more about it.

      Thanks a million Rebecca.

Goran91

Great thank u so much

AirHotess

it was so easy that’s wasn’t hard because of the video made me understand

Nadiya

thank you Rebecca for making this video, if you didn’t make this video I wouldn’t know this good info.

Nadiya

    yep, you’re right, have studied that lesson Emma made. just like what you said, practicing and repeating are always useful for us to improve our English, have a nice day.

    eric0405

    Thank you só much, bencebacsi. I acessed o exclamations by Emma and what a wonderful lesson. Thank again

    who s bad

    Well, I think it’s a good idea to have the same topic explained by different teachers, because they have different styles and we, as students, have different ways of learning. However in Latin we could express it like this: Repetita iuvant, which means that repeating a concept , when learning, helps! Best wishes!

    Perlamar

Thank you Rebecca. Very important lesson!

cacoliveira

Hello, Rebecca.
I want to ask a question, actually I asked it before, but no one replied. :(
So hope you can help me.
‘I’m finished.’ and ‘I have finished.’ What is the difference? Can I say ‘Are you finished?’?
Thank you!

Sophie

    Hello Sophie,
    “I’am finished” means you are finished by somebody, i mean the action (to finish) has been done by another person, and “I have finished” means that you have finished to do something recently, i mean in this situation the action has been done by you, you have done that job. this is my point. thanks.

    Mehroj

    Hi Sophie! I’ve searched for you the answer and luckily I found it;)
    I have finished = I’m finished (e.g. a job); yes it’s exactly the same and you can also ask someone if he or she has already finished the job; Are you finished? It’s correct to say that ;)

    anina

    Yes, Anina is right. You can use either expression and they mean the same thing. All the best to you.

    Rebecca

      Rebecca, thank you so much for your reply!! =D Sometimes no teachers reply our questions. I’m so upset. :(
      So I’m really grateful for your help! :)

      Sophie

        and also thanks Anina! :)

        Sophie

GREAT LESSON

FrankMexican

Good morning mam! How wonderful day today! because I have started this day from you, I got a great lesson today, today is a great day for me. Now I can understand how to express our reaction. So thank you very much mam.

thiruselvi

    How wonderful day is wrong. You should say- What a wonderful day?

    anina

what a great lesson. Short bad very useful.

Oscarcerna12

Hi there,
First of all let me wish to all Engvid.com the best video materials in 2014 and enlarge your teaching project,and also happy 2014 New year.I hope you will teach us for strong educational materials on how speaking ,reading, listening and speaking.
Dear Rebecca I’d like to ask you a question about learning how to speak for one month.Is it possible to teach someone who has a little idea about English to speak normally in it.
Thanks,Sadulla from Tashkent Uzbekistan

What a clear explanation.Thank you
Dear teacher .Could you please explain the differences of since(in case of giving a reason),as, and also the difference between ‘when and while’,’as long as and as soon as’

pintuk

Thanks Mam Rebecca, I got 100%.

Abdul Qayum

90% One mistake in point 2. I don’t recognize this two words. “awful” and “awfully”.
Can anyone tell me, what is different between those words? Thank You Rebecca.
(my english is awfull)

eurokolchoznik

    awful is an adjective but awfully is an adverb

    somaye62

    Hi eurokolchoznik,
    maybe I could answer your question.”Awful” is adjective whilst “awfully” is adverb.
    If I am wrong, correct me Rebecca please…

    Gellii

      Hi Gellili
      I think, what you wrote is correct, but we have to remember about articles. Awful is an adjective and awfully is an adverb. I don’t know why :-) but articles are very important, even in spoken english

      kroy

        Hi there.
        Thank You Gellii.
        Thank You Kroy.
        Now I understand differ between those two words. Rule is precision. In this case We must use adjective, not adverb.

        eurokolchoznik

Thanks Rebecca.
What a nice lesson!

torohi

There is no name or adjective to say What or How for you.

ikarayel

I did only one mistake, how awful!! Thank you Rebecca!

Mehroj

I made one mistake)) Thank you Rebecca! You are great teacher! =)

PascalG91

Hi Rebecca,
Can’t we say “what a day” in a positive way – meaning it is a wonderful one ?

annie974

My respectable teacher Rebecca ,,,And all great teachers in ENGVID .com ,Really I want to say thanks -if thanks is enough – for this great and magnificent work,,,, and I would like to ask you little bit question and I hope to get answer a.s.a.p cause I so confused,,, I studied all the beginner lessons in engvid.com one by one lesson by lesson I started from the bottom till I reach here , to this lesson -the last lesson you upload till now 267th- So could I move to the next step (intermediate level) or not yet??? please my teacher could you tell me what I’m going to do??

How Wonderful English?

tata conde

    Sorry, you would need to say: What wonderful English! All the best.

    Rebecca

Dear Rebecca
Happy New Year to you
In this lesson you said what nonsense and not WHAT A NONSENSE.
I think that is an exception ! How many words don’t accept A ?
Do you undrestand my question ?
Thank you very much for your answer. Kind regards xxx Francis

vilainpetitcrapaud

    Hi, yes we generally say what nonsense, but
    It’s (a) nonsense to say that he’s too old for the job.

    anina

    See my comment about countable and uncountable nouns below. All the best!

    Rebecca

Hello Rebecca. Two examples you gave us are without the article ‘a’: what nonsense and what horrible weather. Is this a matter of countable or non-countable nouns? If the answer is yes, what about ‘shame’ which is non-countable. Happy new year.

patple13

    There are always exceptions, and English is full of them! Happy New Year to you too!

    Rebecca

Hi Rebecca, and everybody on this website. I wish you a good year 2014.
What a fine begin year !

ody joly

How helpful you are; Merci pour ce rappel Rebecca

takayashu

What a clear lesson!Thanks.

byte

Hello. Can I say for instance ‘How he knew it?’ or should I always use auxiliary verb – in this situation – ‘How did he know it?’. Sometimes I have troubles with subject questions. Thanks.

ernest

    ‘How he knew it?’ it’s not a subject question, but I meant that maybe it would be good topic for next lesson.

    ernest

    The correct version would be: How did he know it / that? All the best to you.

    Rebecca

What a beautiful and usefull lesson!
Thank you very much Rebecca.

frariolo

Hello Rebecca!
Can you explain why did you say :” What bad service” and ” What horrible weather” and not “What a bad service” and “What a horrible weather”? In the others examples there is an article.Thank you!

arinamg

    Sorry! I would’ve said : “Would you please explain” I wasn’t polite.

    arinamg

      Hello Piatra, in my opinion both weather and service are uncountable words, that’s why we can not use articles before them.

      Mehroj

        Hello, Mehroj! My name is Arina, not Piatra.
        I think you are right.But why is then” What a shame”? Is “shame” countable?
        Thanks for your answer!

        arinamg

        You are right, Mehroj. Thanks and all the best.

        Rebecca

      I made another mistake.”I should have said” not “I would”.I hope is correct now.

      arinamg

        Sorry Arina, if you want to know more about using of articles, the book in the follow link helps you, and also you can find other grammars in this book, may be you know it, that is the book ever, me 7 or 8 times read grammars and practised the exercises from beginning till the end. i highly recommend it to you, let me check i think i have a pdf version of it, may be i can give you if i find.
        https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1623567.English_Grammar_in_Use_With_Answers

        Mehroj

          that is the best book ever*

          Mehroj

How interesting!

Hugo Goncalves

HOW WONDERFUL LESSON!!!

jisrael777

    Thanks. Actually, because lessons are countable,we need to say:

    “What a wonderful lesson!”

    We can only leave out the article “a” if the noun is plural, such as:

    “What wonderful lessons!”

    Hope this helps. All the best!

    Rebecca

      Also, if you are using a noun in your sentence, then you use the word “what”, like this:

      What a wonderful day!
      What an interesting idea!
      What an amazing concert!
      If you are using only an adjective in your comment, then you use the word “how”, like this:

      How wonderful!
      How interesting!
      How amazing!

      Got it? All the best.

      Rebecca

I expect the best contents from Engvid in this new years, contents that I know I will not find out in others sites about english.

nsoor

Another problem in this lesson. Can someone explain, why “horrible weather” and “bad services”, are without articles?

eurokolchoznik

    Dobriy den Mr.Eurokolchoznik, in my opinion both weather and service are uncountable words, that’s why we can not use articles before them.

    Mehroj

      Thank You Mehroj.
      Simple answer, great idea!
      I haven’t thought about it, in this way.
      (My English is poor)

      eurokolchoznik

      Why She wasn’t say that (((( BAD teacher (((

      andyborisoff

        I meant)) Why She didn’t say it ?

        andyborisoff

What a fantastic lesson!

Yaiba

waaawo soooo nice ..thanke you so much

nsoor

Hi Rebecca,thank you for the lesson.
Please can you clarify to me why you did not put ‘a’ on the other Negative expressions, for instance, you said “what horrible weather” “what bad service” “what nonsense”

Sbonelo

    Please see my comment below. All the best!

Jinjin

Hello Anina! how are you? thanks for the correction.

thiruselvi

100 What a great!

itza.olvera

For all those who had questions about my use of the words weather and service without the indefinite article “a”, Anina’s explanation above is correct. It is because some words are uncountable nouns. With uncountable nouns you cannot use “a”. So you cannot say, “What a good weather!” but only “What good weather!”. For a full explanation of countable and uncountable nouns, along with lots of examples, please see my resource:
https://www.engvid.com/english-resource/countable-and-uncountable-nouns/

All the best to each and every one of you!

Rebecca

beevalley

Hi Mam, I am as a new comer in Canada, exactly in Montreal , but my English is not so good and I am watching to your videos and practice with your lessons , thanks so much.
Sorry, but I just have a question. If I want to go to an accounting English college to take a certificate, isn’t it better first to improve my English knowledge in conversation , vocabulary and … by going to English high school , or not , and I will learn English during the accounting college?
I appreciate you .

Edi

    You will not need as much English in a field such as accounting, but you may need to take some business courses along the way, which would demand higher English skills. Check the required courses and you will know. In any case, an accountant still needs to communicate on the phone and by email with his clients, so English proficiency is needed. Some academic programs require IELTS / TOEFL scores for admission, too. All the best to you.

Jessy

Rebecca, i have a doubt regarding the negative part under what+noun heading.

can we say what a bad weather, a bad service??
you have said like this
what bad weather!, what bad service!can we add a n article before them?

ArjunTeja

    Dear Arijun, weather and service are uncountable noun, so we can not add article before them
    so we should say ” what bad service or what bad weather.

    buitiennhat

Thank you so much Rebecca, You’re an excellent teacher!!!

Hello,
I don’t know why “horrible day”, “bad service” and “nonsense” don’t get “a” Rebecca just add “what” before them. She said “what horrible day” but i think “what a horrible day” is correct.
Please help me!
