cut your hair“, or do you
have it cut? In this lesson, you’ll learn how to talk about actions that other people do for you. When we talk about these actions, we change the structure of the sentence by adding the verb
to have. In this quick lesson, you’ll master an important part of speaking English correctly by learning to apply this rule, and by reviewing many example sentences. Intermediate and advanced ESL students will find this lesson very helpful. Test your understanding by taking the quiz.
Thank Rebecca great lesson as usal
As usual, you explain difficult grammar topics with great ease Rebecca. To tell the truth, this grammar structure is not that easy to grasp. It requires some practice before you put it into real use.
By the way, I looked high and low for the quiz and to my dismay, I couldn’t find it.
I’m sure you’re going to have it done for you (LOL), don’t you? (Is this last sentence correct? Rebecca)
Great Job, thanks a lot.
“I’m sure you’re going to have it done for you (LOL), aren’t you?
And yes, she had me and Moderator do it for her… the quiz is there now!
Thanks, I follow your videos and you are amazing.
Thank you very much. I have my car painted when it is still under warranty.
Amazing lesson! Thanks Rebecca. I had the pipes in my bathroom revamped this morning.Unfortunately, I’m not good with my hands.
Thanks, Respected Rebecca.
Thank you Rebecca, I quite understand after do the quiz. Your material online is very useful and very important for using to talk about something I don’t by myself. I got 10 correct out of 10 Thank you again.
Thanks for this lesson . I wonder how to detail who have done the action . Must I say ?
I have the mechanic , my car repaired Or
I have my car repaired by the mechanic. Or
I have the mechanic repairing my car
Thank you again for all your useful lessons and kind answers .
can you please teach us about the use of ” USED TO”…
I mean if we have to express our habbit in present past and future
Hello,Rebecca! I’m always looking for your lessons. Causative verbs are one of the difficult tasks for me. Thank you for useful lesson!
Hello again Rebecca ,
I left my comment before doing the quiz questions . I think I have had partially an answer to my previous question . However I would like if some of my sentences would be correct ?
I ´d like to know if for question 5 , ” Elena has portraits of her family taken ” has the same meaning than ” has portraits taken of her family ” .
interesting question. I think that both sentences might have same meaning. question 6 probably is your answer:
6. Lucas had the roof of his house fixed after the tornado struck. He had to call in a professional repair company.
If you get answer from Rebecca, let me know. Thx.
Hi .I think they are not the same. When you say: …has portraits taken of her family… it means her family had some portraits with themselves and she caused some one took the portraits from (of) them !!or something like that!I hope I’m right . Best regards.
You´re right!, this changes will be useful to improve the lenguage… being honest, I usally say: I cut my hair last month. Now I´ll say: I have my hair cut last month. Thank you!
sorry, the correct form is: I had my hair cut last month :$
I shave my bald head every day by myself, no problem; I’m autonomous and I need no barber!
But I need Engvid to improve my English, no doubt….
Thank you for this lesson.
I have my English improved everyday by Engvid.com.
Thanks, Rebecca. Great lesson.
Hello, Rebecca and Engvid teachers. Question 5: Would the sentence be grammatically correct and more effective if I write Eliana has her family portraits taken every Chrismas? Thank you.
Hello Rebecca.Glad to see you again.This was most awaited video for me.Thanks for useful explanation.By for now :)
Very very interesting and useful lesson. I have been studying English for a while, but it’s the first time that I realize how to say sentences like these. Thank you very much
God bless you Rebecca, I’ve been waiting for this lesson for ages
I have this lesson learned by Rebecca.
This is passive causative isn’t it.
I got 9/10 without listening this lesson
Good boy! Take a cake from a shelf
Thank you very much Rebecca!!!You´re a very good teacher, and you make lessons fun and useful :)
Thank you very much.
thank you very much
That’s very interesting. Thank you Rebecca.
Hi Rebecca! Nice lesson! Good job! But I did not understand the difference between “I paint the house every year”; “I have the house painted every year” Could you explain this more better? Thanks for all! Good luck)
I will try to explain.
1.I paint the house every day – this means that you paint your house yourself. Without any help.
2.I have the house painted every year – you do not do anything about painting. You ask every year somebody else or firm to perform this work.
Thanks a lot Rebecca ! I’m sure my students will love this lesson :-)
Thank you very much
I cook carnival “cenci” by myself. The most part of people have they cooked by pastry chef:)
Hi Rebecca! This is my first time in your class videos!! I enjoyed!! Thank you for the great lesson.
thank you :)
I got 9 correct out of
Thank you Rebecca
why you not add (ed) in ( cut ) ??
why you don’t add (ed) in ( cut)
the reason is very simple. Cut is irregular verb.
Hi,first I would like to thank you and I want to ask you that `I have my hair cut every month` or `I have cut my hair every month`
I have my hair cut every month. It’s a way she explained us. rewind it. :) are you french speaker from Canada or?! I’m just curious.
I mean,is that present perfect or nope, and what tense is it?
thanks for reply me.
I have my hair cut every month. Passive sentence. It is not present perfect. The tense is present simple tense with passive format.
Thanks man for your curious.
It was a very interesting lesson Rebecca, thanks!

I had my report made for my sister last week.
Great lessons. A lot to learn, Thanks Rebecca !!
Very useful lessons! thank you a lot!
Thank you, Rebecca! It`s very interesting. But, all your examples have only regular verbs:
Please,give us some examples with irregular verbs in the past tense. We must use second or third form of irregular verbs?
Cut is irregular verb) by the way it was said in comments above. I figure we should use 3 form in this case, like in passive voice tences
Thank you Rebecca for the lesson.The form of sentence is new for me, so it makes to look the sentence on different angle.By the way, I had my shoes repaired a week ago.It did my father for me.He is good with his hands.:)
Thanks a lot emo53! Now I understood. It was very kind of you)
Excellent lesson as usual!

Thak You Ms Rebecca
Thanks. In our country we can use something similar but is unusual. In the quiz, the first question is kind of tricky, lol
Hi Ribecca,you are a realy wornderful teacher.this your lesson has realy helped me.tnks alot.
Thank you for this very helpful lesson for speaking correctly.
I have a question: is this exam really for advanced english speakers? I consider myself at this said level, but, I probably need to improve it. I asked this though, because i found this exam way too easy, and I didn’t even watched the video lesson..Is the exam too simple, or is my english already fluent?
What is your goal in studying english? In what way did you use the word “way” in your question? Could you explain it, please?
I really appreciated this lesson and my score for it was 100. Amazing :)
Yes! I´m so happy for passing the test with no mistakes. Moreover, I´m going to get through a life-changing interview this month in which I´ll have to perform a class. Well, I guees I´ll work on this subject due to its lack of use in Brazil. I found it interesting. Thanks a lot, teacher Rebecca. Take care.
I hope you like it.
Rebecca, thank you so much. It was very useful English to know the collect meaning. You are Great!

I really cut my “hair”, but when I was younger I usually had my hair cut every month or so.
maybe if you say: … when I was younger I used to have my hair cut every month” sounds better.. cheers.

Thanks Rebecca. I usually had my hair cut by my mother when I was a child. :)
Thanks Rebecca.My husband has his hair cut every month by me.

Good afternoon Rebecca, thanks for the lesson. Today I got 9 correct , my answer by the first question was unfortunately not correct, but I think that is okay because I can learn with this mistake, and I want to make better in the future.
I like your lessons so much and you are really a very good teacher.

(This lesson is the 2’d lesson from you)
So far I give you a 5 star computer program.
And this is just the 2’d video!!
(Sorry of my face expression in the picture, I am not mad or sad, I am sooooooooo HAPPY!! :)
Thank you so much, it is very useful…:)
Rebecca, you made the correction in this video about the following example sentence – Original: I had my hair cut every month. Corrected: I had my hair cut last month. Don’t you think it was unnecessary? I mean there was nothing wrong with it. It simply means that you used to have your hair cut every month, but not anymore. Hope for your clarification on this. Thank you.
Hi, she made the correction because the verb is in past tense HAD, so the time can’t be every. I think that. bye
thanks,Rebecca for your efforts ….:D
Thank you, dear Rebecca!
You are really perfect teacher.

I’m confused in the beginning, but after the quiz it sticks in my mind.
It is a little bit difficult for me to use this type of sentence without thinking before twice because in my native language I express both situation in the same manner, using the same kind of grammar. But, as I am on a mission to improve my skills, I will do my best to correct myself.
Thanks a lot ! It was really helpful .
