    It is better to use ma’am, then mam. :-)

    ma’am = madam
    mam = shorter for mama, which is lovely name for mother
    mom = mother

Why McD said “I’m lovin’it”?

Astri

    Because advertisers, musicians, poets, and creative people do whatever they want, and that’s a good thing. It makes our world more interesting. However, if you want to appear for an exam, or speak and write correctly for work, then you need to use the correct form! All the best to you, Astri.

    Rebecca

    yes today in morning i also swotted slogan.. but i had forgot company name.

Hello, Rebecca. I hope you are fine. Could you make a lesson explaining how to use Onward, Onwards, Forward, and Forwards? I want to know the difference between the above, and I didn’t find any lesson on YouTube. Thank you!

rossrdrz

    Words forward, onward etc are used with combination of nouns, so they are used as adjectives. But words forwards, onwards are used with combination of verbs, so they are used as adverbs.

    Sample:
    Be careful with forward passes in football, because you can get into offside position.

    You are smart, you are moving forwards and not looking back into the past anymore.

    In first sample “forward passes”: passes is noun, so forward is adjective, so without “s”.

    In second sample “moving forwards”: moving is verb; forwards is adjective.

    This is official British English, but in American English they sometimes use without “s” e.g. moving forward.

    rokaly

I like and appreciate your lessons.

Serdan

Thank you, the explanation was clear

Another brilliant lesson by my best and favorite Teacher ever! Very grateful to your existance since I’m pretty sure you’ve contributed tremendously in the field of education with such great lessons and ways of teaching!

EngBadStudent

    Wow, thank you so much for your kind and generous words. Based on your writing, I would say you could certainly become an excellent English teacher. I wish you all the best, my friend.

    Rebecca

P.S.: Unable to download or print the file :/ same happened to your previous lesson on “How to pronounce the ‘ON’ sound in English”. Please, fix it!

EngBadStudent

    Use google chrome browser. In the resource page, tap (click) three dots on right corner of app, and tap share. Then tap print and choose save as PDF.Then tap save. Good luck

Hi Astri! The expert Mignon Fogarty said:

“I’m loving it” does sound slightly off, and that draws attention. Perhaps that’s why McDonald’s chose it for their slogan, which launched in September 2003. None of the dictionaries I checked sanction “loving” as a form of the verb “love,” but the McDonald’s slogan isn’t the only instance where this sentence has been used in popular culture. Justin Timberlake has a 2003 song called “I’m Loving It”, and earlier the Scorpions put out a song called “Still Loving You”, which contains the lyric “I’m loving you.” …
We all know that advertisements, song lyrics, and fashion headlines aren’t the places to turn for examples of good grammar, but we also know that native speakers of English can get creative with traditional grammar, and that sometimes grammatically iffy phrases catch on. Language is constantly changing. Enough people seem to be using stative verbs in progressive tenses that we can probably say it’s becoming more accepted in popular culture to use them that way. That said, it’s still probably best for ESL* teachers to continue to advise their students not to say, “I’m loving it” or to use other potentially incorrect stative verbs in progressive tenses.

Andy Dixi

    Thanks, andixi! I was about to link to the same piece.

    This StackExchange user also points out that using “loving” and not “love” implies that it’s an ongoing activity—it’s something the speaker is doing right now. It sounds more immediate and dynamic than just “I love it”. The people at McDonald’s definitely took this into account.

HAlina1607

Hello, Rebecca! Could you please explain if the verb “want” belongs to the category “both”. I haven’t found it in your additional material, but I suppose this word is normally used as a stative verb. However, I’ve seen the usage of this verb in continuous form. Could you elaborate on that, please?

Anton91

    The verb “Wait”. Not want.

    Anton91

      The verb “wait” can be used with the progressive tenses.
      I am waiting.
      I was waiting.
      I will be waiting.
      I have been waiting.
      ….and so on.

      You can also say:
      Every day, I wait for the bus.

      All the best to you, Anton91.

      Rebecca

Thanks a lot Rebeca. You are a great teacher!

kendyosiro

So if I say:” I’m still loving you”, as the famous Scorpion’s song, is it not correct?

Ricardo PD

    See Andy Dixi’s excellent explanation above. I have also responded to Astri above, on a similar point. All the best to you, Ricardo.

    Rebecca

Thank you so much Rebecca. You are a great teacher.

Amanda2

Hi Rebecca! Thank you for this video. Can you also please teach us when and how to use the “have had” and “had had” in writing and conversation? Thank you!

MejT

    May I jump in.

    “have had” is Present Perfect tense
    “had had” is Past Perfect tense

    Sample:
    I have had a headache for two days now.
    I had had a headache before I took a headache pill.

    First sample “have had” is present perfect tense, that is expressed as some action that started in the past and continues to the present.

    Second sample “had had” is past perfect, some action in the past that happened before some other action in the past. Having a headache is action in the past before another action in the past: taking a pill.

10/10. thanks

Mohammed ammouri

Hello, Rebecca! Thank you for amazing lessons! I’ve got a question for you, if you don’t mind🙏 I found that verb “love” can be used in present continuous form, when we want to emphasise that a situation is temporary or for a period of time around the present (ex. Ella stays with us quite often. The children love gaving her here. And Ella’s with us at the moment. The children are loving gaving her here) To be honest, I was confused with it. Help me understand, is it possible or no. Thank you:)

Very good lesson Mam. There are so many things to learn in English Grammar. We are glad you are there to clear the doubt and help us. Thank you so much for your effort.

rawatbiren1985

Thank you for clear explanation. I do like your lessons.
One tip, found in a book English Grammar in Use by Cambridge University Press. Present tenses in future meaning.
“When we are talking about what we have already arranged to do, we should use Present Continuous.
example: Ann is coming tomorrow.
When we are talking about timetables, programmes etc. we should use Present Simple.
example: The flight leaves at 8 a.m. tomorrow.
For personal arrangements Present Simple is not using.
example: I am meeting Ann at 8 a.m. tomorrow”
This explanation helped me a lot, as far as my native language (Russian) is not so reach with tenses.
