        Hi, I’m replying cause’ the leave a message button didn’t work. I just HAD to say that you made me laugh a lot we your cute and funny way to teach. I wish I had have a teacher like you when I studied in Brazil, Spain and in France. In those countries the English language is so badly thought !! OMG
        I think that we must at first learn how to speak before learning stuff like how to write a correct phrase because if no one understands when you speak a “correct phrase” because of your pronunciation … after writing this message to you, I’m going to look after a video where you teach us how to pronunciate the vowels when they are combined in words. ex: ae ai ao au ea ee ei … etc. And I would love to watch a video where you explain to us how we pronunciate the letter i because foreigners pronunciate it as the letter e. Most people don’t see the difference between bit/beat pitch/peach and so on. have a very nice day !! I like you very much. Carlos.

      ifsomeone just arrived at office
      so we can say tht eg. sir has just came to office
      is tht correct?

      jass

        I suppose u wanna use “present perfect”,in this way u can say:
        He has just arrived or he has just come.
        present perfect:have/has+pp
        come,came,come(irregular)

thx in advance, bye

Profile photo of Bruno Bruno

    Hi there,
    Trip:a journey 2 a place & back again,specially a short one 4 pleasure or a particular purpose.
    Travel:2 go from 1 place 2 another,specially over a long distance.(2 travel around the world)
    Hope I could help.

    Profile photo of fatiima fatiima

    Trip is a noun. I’m going on a trip.
    Travel is a verb. I’m traveling to Alaska

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      But we can say: “I’m goint to traveling”?

      And “I’m going on a traveling”?

      thx Ronnie, you’re an excellent teacher!

      Profile photo of Bruno Bruno

        You cannot say “I’m going to traveling”, but you can say I’m going to travel! Remember once and for all that GERUND and INFINITIVE are never used together!!!

        Merlin

          So, why “I’m looking forward to meeting you” is correct?

          Profile photo of Bruno Bruno

        “I’m going to traveling” Is wrong. You can say “I’m going traveling”.

        “I’m going on a traveling” NO! Traveling is a verb. You have to say “I’m going on a trip”! Trip is a noun!
        I hope that helps Bruno!!!

Hello teacher Ronnie! How are you? I will be migrating to Canada very soon. I learn a lot from your lessons especially “pronunciation”. I am not a native English speaker but our 2nd official language is English. So, I have a different accent, I pronounce some English word incorrectly and I find it difficult some times or most of the time. Lol!
I want to learn how to speak, talk and sound like a Canadian. If you don’t mind, can you teach me how to pronounce some of these words Teacher Ronnie:
-written, kitten, cotton, button, mountain, bottom
-mouth, months(I find it hard to pronounce month and months). How do you pronounce “THS”?
-coupon, data, about
-certificate, predicate(will it be pronounce as “KIT” or “KAYT”?), enumerate, alternate, liquidate, consulate(will it be pronounced as “EYT” or “IT”)
-able, applicable, convertible, table, vulnerable, adorable, cable, marble, gamble, humble(would you pronounce it as “BALL” of “BELL”?
I hope to hear from you soon. Have a great day Teacher Ronnie.

como se diferencia los tiempos entre el presente perfecto y el pasado perfecto

noemi

    Present perfect – past events in you life. Ex. I have been to Mexico.
    Past perfect = The past perfect tense is often used when we are relating two events which happened in the past. It helps to show which event happened first. Ex.. After I had taken a bath, I brushed my teeth. (my first action = past perfect!)

Hi there Ronnie! Your lessons are the best ones :D well, even if it isn’t connected to this lesson, I’ve always wanted to know if using “ain’t” was correct,what were its meanings because I usually read it in the lyrics and hear people using it but I didn’t see it on my English schoolbooks.. I wish you could light my mind and explain this “mystery” :P xoxo bye

Profile photo of pacoman17 pacoman17

    “Ain’t” means “isn’t”, “aren’t”, “hasn’t” and “haven’t”.

    • That isn’t right. >> That ain’t right.
    • They haven’t been there. >> They ain’t been there.
    • Aren’t you coming? >> Ain’t you coming?

    But it’s only okay for casual/informal conversation!

    Profile photo of engVid Moderator engVid Moderator

      Thank you so much EngVid :)

      Profile photo of pacoman17 pacoman17

    “ain’t” is very informal. I think it makes people sound uneducated when they say it – I don’t recommend using it! In songs they NEVER follow grammar rules!!! It is art!

Regis

Hi Ronnie,
I have a question, but it doesn´t have anything to do with your lesson. I hope you can help me.
It is about the use of past perfect. I know past perfect is used to talk about an action in the past that happened before another action in the past. i.e:
“After I had bought the paper, I went home.”
I´ve seen a sentence that really made me feel unsure about past perfect. Here you have the sentence:”Before they had set up the social networking sites, we didn´t have any way of communicating over long distances.”
Logically we didn,t have it first, and then they set it up. Why is it used the other way around.Hope you can help me. Thanks, Richard.

Richard

    Because they use the word “before”, it is telling you that there were no ways of communicating, until the sites had been set up. The word before is what is confusing you!

Dear Teacher Ronnie
I have homework.Can you help me?
Using TOO or ENOUGH in the answer.

Can we walk to the supermarket?(close) Yes, it is too close. or
Yes, it is close enough.
Thank you very much

PAO

    When we use “too”, it means something is bad or negative. “I have too much homework.” “I have too many problems.”
    When we use “enough” it means the quantity is perfect. “I have enough money to buy the top.” “I have enough time to help you!”
    Too = bad
    Enough = okay!

Hello teacher!
I would like to ask you some questions.
‘What r silent words?’
Are they every ‘ k ‘ before ‘ n’ ,
every ‘ p ‘ before ‘ s ‘ and ‘ n ‘ ,
every ‘ w’ before ‘ r ‘ ,
every ‘ l ‘ between ‘ u ‘ and ‘ d ‘ ,
every ‘ s ‘ between ‘ i ‘ and ‘ l ‘ ,
every ‘ b’ between ‘ vowels’ and ‘ t ‘ ,and
every ‘ t ‘ between ‘f’ and ‘ e ‘ , ‘ s and e’ , ‘ s and l’?
Answer me teacher please!!

Tharlay

    Sorry, English does not have a simple pattern like this for silent letters – they are all different!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      That is becouse english include many words for diffrent laguages and don’t have its own alphabet. Latin, greek and franch espcially and many others langugea affect to english. And I/ve even heard russian word ‘pgrom’. And Canada I know 50% franch country)))))))))

    The only advice I can offer you is to listen and repeat how native English speakers speak! And listen and repeat and listen and repeat – a million times!!! You need to hear how you say the words vs. a native speaker! You should also record yourself to hear how you say words! Good luck!

    You should think about what questions they will ask you in the interview – most companies ask the same questions. Prepare your answers. Also, if you don’t understand what they have asked you, just ask them to repeat it… if they are good people, they will try to help you understand the question!
    Check out these videos on job interviews in English –

Hi..Sir.. i have a doubt. I passed exam, I have passed exam. When we use this ? what is diffrence between this two words ? Which is correct?. Thankyou.

Profile photo of shajibhai shajibhai

    First, I am not a “sir”. My name is Ronnie! Sir is only for men!
    You have to say I passed my exam = simple past tense.
    OR I have passed my exam = present perfect. They are both correct!
    We use present perfect if the action is based on life experience and has no time marker. We use simple past for routine actions with a time marker!
    In this situation, I would use present perfect!

    For grammar, you just have to memorize the rules. For your accent, listen and repeat English words, then record your voice so you can hear and improved your accent!

Mosquito breeding goes on unabated in rural India

The intensified antilarval measures taken up by the civic authorities during the recent outbreak of chikungunya and dengue in the rural India do not seem to have had a positive impact. Several areas continue to be mosquito-breeding centers on a large scale, researchers of the vector Biology and Control laboratory of the Andhra University have found. The laboratory officials found large density of mosquito larvae in the water samples collected from different districts. The samples were taken from East Godavari, Nellore, Srikakulam and areas near by lakes and ponds. The density was 2000 to 2100 larvae per dip of water in these localities on an average while the normal limit is less than 200 larvae per dip of water. Each dip of water contains about 300ml. The uni-dimensional method of using only chemicals to curb mosquito menace, perhaps , was the reason for this , the researchers surmise.
“Instead, an integrated mosquito management using physical, chemical and biological methods should have been taken up. Networking of various agencies involved in the efforts is also crucial. Mosquito control is a continual exercise and results cannot be expected by taking once-in-a-year anti-larval drive” says fellow Researcher with UGC on Vector control K.Hemalatha. The Vector Control Department would be submitting these recommendations in the national-level workshop on Integrated Mosquito Management to be held on Monday through Visakhapatnam municipal Commissioner Ms.Satyavathi.B.
Spreading of mosquitoes in rural Indian and need to have an integrated approach to effectively control the breeding of mosquitoes.

Modern Indian life

India is a culturally and ethnically diverse nation. In view of rising crime, it causes for several departments of administration of both central and state government have been failed to be vigilant. Many of elected leaders and administrations have been retorting since independence. During elections, voters have been hearing the rumble of wrong promises across the nation.The iniquities of Indian politicians and authorities are a bolt on humanity and it began to poverty and scurried death. The corrupted politicians must be battered in the court of law and according to world lore, the Indian politicians the highest depositors in the Swiss has healing properties.A confrontation between looting political parties and the parties led to a tense situation in all fields of employment and lives of people. Country side did not heed the advice of the others because of their obstinacy. People never dare to bias towards facilitation and development of infrastructure.
India is not only the oldest civilized nation but also mother of several launchers like “Yoga, Kamasutra, gurukula education”. The infrastructure of the rural life such as handy crafts, joint families influenced due to poor administration and unworthy policies. Authorities and elected leaders are making people burst into hysterical tears at the hopeless theories. Youngsters are bickering when they play crucial play in the society due to corruption and crime. How nation could see the pinnacle of the success above their expectations ? Let hope to see the path of climbing Himalayas.

Ronnie that lesson was very informative. What is the rule when you have to pronounce words that have two constants in the middle. I have no problem with compound words, but other words I do with two constants letters that are together. Do you pronounce the first letter in the word or the second letter for example in the word investigate like the letters s and t. How do you determine what letter will be silent. Would you please do some examples and explain and how to use could and would whats the different with those two words. Please respond Thyou
