Dear Teacher Rebecca at first sight it looks easy to write correct answer ,but in some of them like success and succeed confusing and a little bit emigration and immigration arise,however thanks a lot of choosing interesting cases to teach us
The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree
Hello kotoz,first of all;congratulaion. Second;I have a question: I know the meaning of the top idiom, but I don’t understand the relevance (use)of it with this lesson,could you please tell me???
Correct mistakes come from learning
Hello everyone! Have you noticed it’s the anniversary again! The 200th lesson of dear Rebecca! My congratulations to her. I’m so glad to be a student of such askillful teacher as Rebecca. You teach us not back or forward but all year round. Thank you!
A teacher is like Spring,
Who nurtures new green sprouts, Encourages and leads them,
Whenever they have doubts.
A teacher is like Summer,
Whose sunny temperament
Makes studying a pleasure,
A teacher is like Fall,
With methods crisp and clear,
Lessons of bright colors
And a happy atmosphere
A teacher is like Winter
While it’s snowing hard outside, Keeping students comfortable,
As a warm and helpful guide.
Teacher, you do all these things,
With a pleasant attitude;
You’re a teacher for all seasons,
And you have my gratitude!
Hello dear Nataanna,did you see the comments of my happiness in the last lesson? Check them please.
Do you remember my expression about NOROUZ? Now it’s NOROUZ!!!!!
I wish you and your family wealth and happiness!
Do you have holidays these days?
NOROUZ is our holiday!!! It takes 13 days
Dear Nataanna. Can I ask you something? In these days, you have not been activing. Do you mind if I ask you the reason?
Sorry, it lasts 13 days.
Kotoz was right- I’m stressed for my work. And a little bit out of health condition. In spring the weather changes a lot in Russia; many people suffer from that. Me too, unfortunately.
But I always watch all lessons and comments.
I’m happy for you. Relax, spend more time with your family and friends. Have joyful days!
Oh, I’m so sorry for that.
Spring brings joyful and happiness for people, but it seems this condition is a little different for Russians. I hope that you regain your health as soon as possible. You know, my mother is sick too. She had dizziness three days ago, now she’s better but she becomes so weak.
Good evening Nkh! It’s very pity to hear about your mother. I hope she’ll get stronger in few days.
My mom jokes about holes in atmosphere due to space ships launches. She says it causes blood pressure races. Of course, it’s a joke. But who knows?
Thanks for your sympathy dear Nataanna. You know, thanks God,my mother is very good now. Thank you again.
And about your mother’s joke; I think she may is right!!! Finally, sometimes, the old, know sth that the young haven’t got any information about that, that’s why they think the old are wrong or tell a joke. Do you agree? Totally, I don’t know too. But to tell you the truth it was so interesting to me. It was the first time that I heared such a thing. But I don’t believe it too.
Let’s get forget about it!!!!!❤
Congratulation, you got a witness from Ms. Rebecca that you have a good English.
Thank you. She is so kind to me. I appreciate her feedback very much. I`ll do my best to please all teachers at EngVid in their work, especially Ms. Rebecca.
Nataanna, thank you very much for your kind words. I am very grateful. Enthusiastic learners like you make our work at EngVid more meaningful and rewarding. By the way, your English is very good, so congratulations to you on that achievement. I wish you continued success today and in the future.
Thank you very much, dear Rebecca! My knowledge is mostly based on your and other EngVid teachers` efforts. Thank you for your job!

Very useful lesson, thanks Rebecca.

this quiz is a peace of caek!
You mean “a piece of cake” my friend. So glad you did well on the quiz! All the best to you, jahabli.
my big problem >> affect and effect ??
I have to say that effect can also be a verb and affect can be a noun.
Yes, you are right, Maxxx89. At a much more advanced level, they can be used that way. However, the usage of “effect” as a verb and “affect” as a noun is quite rare, compared to the opposite, which is why I chose to explain the much more common error. Congratulations to you on knowing the difference. I wish you the best, today and always.
Thx for the answer!
10/10 and , of course, thx for the lesson
I <3 EngVid
grate but a little confusing
happy Nowruz to you .
Happy NOROUZ to you. I wish you a great year.
Have a nice year
Yep! I agree with you, but be patient. It takes some time to master these confused words, but don´t give up.
Keep up the good work Maryan!
This video has been a great success for me. It’s gonna have an effect on my teaching of course. So, if everything goes well, I am gonna immigrate soon. I just have choose the right things to succeed. Thank you very much for this lesson!:
Manuela, thanks for sharing the usage of these words in the correct way! We know that practice is the best way to master vocabulary, especially when you make your own sentences and apply the words to your own reality, as you have done. I thank you and wish you all the best, from one English teacher to another!
hi rebe i like your pronunciation and I hope to be someday like you
Thanks, engbro. To improve your pronunciation some more, try listening, pausing the video, and repeating the sentence in the same way. It can help quite a lot. All the best to you.
thanks for the lesson Rebecca, and the quiz questions are really good!
you are the best
If you want to succeed in learning English, you have to accept Rebecca’s advice.
Well, that sounds good to me, camellee. Thanks for the vote of confidence. I wish you all the best.
Thanks Ms Rebbeca for this great lesson.
I remember that I asked once my teacher of French about the last two words to immigrate and to emigrate ( in French: immigrer et émigrer), but your explanation was more clear.
I still have a question, If I wanted to mention the source and the destination at once, would it be correct if said ?
-They immigrate from Mexico to Canada.
-They emigrate from from canada to Mexico.
-They emigrate to Canada from Mexico.
Actually, you would need to say:
They emigrated from Mexico to Canada.
They immigrated to Canada from Mexico.
So the rule is:
emigrate FROM somewhere
immigrate TO somewhere
Thanks for your feedback and all the best to you.
Thanks a lot, this is really kind, I still follow your lessons.
Wow!It is a happy thing to have your leasons,Rebecaa.I like it!
Thanks, biggeragirl! I wish you all the best with your English, going forward.
salam from sunny Kyrgyzstan! :-) You are the best teacher in the world, even maybe universe!
Wow, what a compliment, Tr0yan! Thank you kindly for your generous words. Each teacher offers us a different way to understand and move forward. I am happy to be able to help you and wish you all the best, today and always.
In Russian Advice is a countable noun, so we can say in Russian:” I am going to give you three advices: 1)…;2)…;3)…” or “I’ll give you a couple advices.”. Could I translate in English such expressions as “I am going to give you three pieces of advice:1)…;2)…;3)…” and “I’ll give you a couple pieces of advice.”?
Yes, Roman06, you are right. We cannot count “advice” in English, so we cannot say “advices”, but we can count “pieces” so we can certainly say “three pieces of advice”. Thanks for sharing – interesting to know how it works in Russian. I wish you all the best going forward.
Very good lesson!!!!!!
Congratulation Rebecca, it is a fruitful lesson.
Thank you for this meaningful lesson
I knew everything besides the difference between advice and advise. I’ve also recently found out that advice is an uncountable noun. Life is suprising, I was wrong for so many years. Now i know that i should say “I need a piece of advice”, but i sounds strange for my after so many years of saying “I need advices”. So as you can see lesson was useful. Thx.
Thanks for your honest comment, ChrisOldo. Yes, even if you went away making one important correction after this lesson, it’s worth it, especially when we multiply that by the number of times in your life you might make that mistake otherwise. By the way, you can also say:I need some advice. Please check my resource on countable and uncountable nouns for more clarification and examples:
All the best to you, my friend.
It was good lesson ….I like it …. thank a lot and Have a nice day ..I have very question but I want Something or Ways for asking … I need for sample : a email or social media .
Please check our writing or business English sections for many more lessons on how to write email or social media posts. All the best to you, amirrezaee, today and always.
It was good leasson! I’m so happy to found this website!
Even after 200 lessons, it is always enjoyable and enriching to follow your lessons. Congratulations.
Thank you very much, Peter. That’s very kind of you. Thanks for watching and caring about improving. Glad to know I can help you. The 200 lessons include videos as well as the resources I have written for EngVid, so do check if any of those can help you further. All the best, Peter, today and always.
Great lesson, Rebecca. It is very important to know the difference among all of these words.Thanks a lot. Take care!
Rebecca Thank you so much.
Thanks Rebecca. I used wrong these words most of the time. It was a very useful lesson for me.
Wow, that’s great, S.Mohsen! Then, I’m really glad I recorded this lesson. Our mistakes are doorways to our growth. Correcting these errors will make a big improvement in your English. All the best to you, my friend.
Hello Rebecca! Thanks for explaining the differences beween those words, I used to confuse them, but now I believe I get a better understandindg on how to use them.
It has been a very useful review to words like “succeed” and “success”, or “advise” and “advice” because if you are not in contact with them several times, maybe you will be wrong when you find one of them, logically the doubts always come to us with this type of similar words. Thanks a lot, teacher Rebecca, as always a very interesting lesson.
Yes, you are right, angardiobel. Review is critical as it solidifies our knowledge. I have found many advanced learners who still make these mistakes. Glad you found the lesson useful. My best wishes to you, always.
Very good tutorial. But I feel explaining not thorough enough, maybe offer more details should be better.
This was meant to be a shorter diagnostic and review lesson. Please note that each of the five word pairs I covered here is linked to another lesson which explains them in full detail. The links are at the end of the lesson. All the best to you, jlg234bob.
Clear and useful lesson, as usual.
I enjoyed my self? Thank you mam Rebbeca
Thanks, LoveU. I enjoyed your comment! Learning should be fun. I wish you all the best.
it was a great leason i have ever listened thanks to you Rebbeca .
I like the teacher Rebbeca. thanks
Rebecca, are you sure that your the last example is correct? Emigrants refer to people who go to another country and Immigrants to those who come from another country. Best regards, Jacek/Poland.
Yes, when people leave a country for good, they are emigrants. When they arrive to stay in a new country, they are immigrants. We are in agreement. All the best to you, JacekPL.
Thank you Rebecca, It’s really a great lessor for the learners.
Sorry I can’t reply to each one who leaves a comment, but I do thank you all very much. It means a lot to us to hear from you, to know what you need, and to understand how we can help you further. I wish you all the best, with your English and your lives.
Thanks for your answers and feedbacks Rebecca. We also wish you peronal advancement and rays of sunshine on all your ways of life :)

I think both choices are correct in 4. question, isn’t it. Thanks a lot for this lesson and thank advance for your interest.
Actually, for both choices to be correct,they would have to be phrased in this way:
Success means different things to different people.
To succeed means different things to different people.
Hope this helps!

thanks Rebecca,hugs (Kazakhstan, 02 october 2021)
very usefull for me presentation
This really help thank you very much!
Thanks very much, Rebecca! You are amazing. (Azores Islands, 06Jun2022);
I think the last two questions are wrong:
That’s because we, people that remain in the country, are the reference point. Look, we didn’t move, so someone emigrate TO somewhere… (They’re gone from the place we still are) And when they come for the place we are, they immigrated FROM somewhere TO the place we are. (They arrived here)
At least in Portuguese is in that way.
And thank you so much for your videos, I only choose you to watch videos here because you’re the professor who most make them. I watched already 71, I’m just watching the intermediates ones, after that I’m going through the advanced, thank you so much, for real. <3 s2
