Very glad to have your lesson again Rebecca! Thank you very much! Your lesson is very interesting!


    Yep! I agree with you,Rebecca’s lessons are engaging.

    Affixes are excellent tools for expanding our vocabulary Rebecca, no doubt about it. But as you mentioned not all the words follow the same pattern. So, how do we know when to use a given suffix -say “-ment”- in order to change the function of the word and its meaning?

    Very useful tips to increase our vocabulary Rebecca; thanks for sharing all this with us.


    So glad you found the lesson useful. We need all the tricks and tips we can get to learn more effectively. All the best to you.


Interesting and useful! Thank you, Rebecca :)


YEAH Rebecca..the same haircut..i like it


Amazing lesson, Rebbeca!! Extremely helpul!! I would like to take the opportunity to express my enormous gratitude to you extended to all of teachers of the Engvid for the outstanding job. Your lessons have been more than useful for me since I got in America few weeks ago. For all THANK YOU KINDLY!!! Jose.


    Thank you, Jose, for your warm words. I am very glad to know our lessons have helped you. You communicate very well and on behalf of everyone at engvid, I wish you all the best.


      Your reply brought happiness to my day, dear Rebecca! Thank you very much! I’m living in Portland, OR for two months now, and I keep learning with the lessons of Engvid team — really really helpful!
      Warm greetings.


        Hi Rebecca,
        I’d like to ask a question on grammar. In my message above I wrote that “I’m living…” Since I’ve refered to certain period, what is the grammaticaly right form:
        “I am living for two months now”
        “I have lived for two months now”
        “I have been living for two months now”
        I’ll appreciate your precious answer.
        Looking forward to hearing from you.


          “I’ve been living in xxx for yyy months and…” –> Duration, still happening

          “I have been living in xxx since September” –> Starting point


Thanks Rebecca!

This was another great lesson from you which helped me a lot. My English speaking is strengthen every day because of you all.

Fabio Cicerre

thank you for new words


YES, mam Rebecca mam as you said in the video while teaching it’s strange..


Yes It’s strange for me so we have to understand this short of word and have to comfortable with the word sing with others And everyone have to follow this pattern as Ms Rebecca told us and most significant also who is learning and improving English..


Thanks Rebecca! It’s very easy and fun)


thanks for your this nice and really helpful video and it worked out. you have really shortened my english learning time, haven’t you Rubecca? :P :)


    Thank you, Ahad. It’s always my goal to teach the tricks and shortcuts that allow people to learn more quickly and confidently. SO glad the lesson helped you. I wish you all the best.


Hello Rebecca! Thank you for the lesson! You are so positive, I love to learn English watching videos of yours.


    Aww…thanks, that’s very kind of you. I believe we are all teachers and learners in one way or the other and the best way to live in this world is to be warm and encouraging towards each other. My best wishes to you, Anyur1984.


Thank you very much Rebecca!!!I didn´t know how easy it could be to sound smarter!!!

thanks Rebecca:)


Mrs. Rebecca,
What is the difference in meaning of these adjectives ending in -ing if they come after sense verbs with people?
Your boss sounds interesting.
He looks boring.
You sound amazing.
They seem amusing.
She sounds exhausting.


    Excuse me, Fahdbensalman! About interested/interesting, according to the Learnersdictionary, “Interested is an adjective that describes a person or people who like something and want to know more about it, as in these examples:
    The listeners were all very interested in the lecture. (interested describes the listeners)”.
    Also, I would like to add: the ‘ed’ ending indicates the person or thing that suffers the action, and the ‘ing’ one indicates the person or thing that causes the action; for instance, a boring boss (he causes something annoying), and a bored boss (somebody else caused something boring to the boss).
    I hope that it will help you.
    See you.


    -ed adjectives

    Adjectives that end ‘-ed’ describe emotions – they tell us how people feel about something.

    I was very bored in the maths lesson. I almost fell asleep.
    He was surprised to see Helen. She’d told him she was going to Australia.
    Feeling tired and depressed, he went to bed.
    -ing adjectives

    Adjectives that end ‘-ing’ describe the thing that causes the emotion – a boring lesson makes you feel bored.

    Have you seen that film? It’s absolutely terrifying.
    I could listen to him for hours. He’s one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met.
    I can’t eat this! It’s disgusting! What is it?
    Remember that people can be boring but only if they make other people feel bored.

    He talks about the weather for hours. He’s so boring.
    NOT I was very boring at the party so I went home.

    Briklend Handersson

probably this isn’t my level, I didn’t understand too good, but I have 10 out of 10)
sorry for my mistakes…

Benny Dilson

Thank you so much for your impressive lesson.But if you do not mind i want to you to make a lesson for me.
The lesson about passive voice “A movie produced by Hollywood actor Brad Pitt” I know when we use passive voice we have to use a helping verp(am,is are,was,were,has,have)but in above example why we dont need?

Thank you..


Is “sickens” the correct answer in the 9th question? By the analogy with the 10th question.


    Thanks for your consideration.You always make it great.I have watched the lesson then I did the quiz and I got 10 correct out of 10.In additional I have taken a note-write down the new words.
    So helpful for better understanding while watching a movie or listening a music and etc.
    I appreciate you

Hi,Rebecca!You are very good in teaching. Thanks to you,everything is clear. I vish you the best. Thank you.


    Thank you kindly for your feedback. I wish you all the best with your English.


Thanks, Rebecca!
Your lesson really helps me!
What about the verb fasten?
It seems fast + en but it doesn’t mean make faster, if I don’t get wrong.
Is there a reason for that?
Thank you!


    You know that English has lots of exceptions and you just found another one! All the best!


Frankly, I was expecting a quick way to weld some words into my brain, because I just realised procrastination is simply bad( I know I’m a bloody fool)…
Is there a way to do so other than to learn easy inflexions which I’m already aware of?? Also, does anybody has(/have?) an idea how I would do at the academic(-)ielts if got like 9 outta// 90-100% for most of the advanced-tier mcqs on(/in) this site …?? lol I really swear those last bits that ended up grey is merely a coincident!!


    You write very well overall, but do have some mistakes in English:

    Does anybody have any idea
    on this site

    Please check this site: goodluckielts.com

    All the best to you.


Good day, Rebecca!
I extremely like your lessons, it really helps to BROADEN our knowledge of English!


    Great use of the term! And doesn’t it make you feel proud to speak so well? Congratulations and all the best to you.

Dear Rebecca,
This exercise strengthens my English language mastery.
Yours sincerely.


    Way to go! Congratulations on applying what you have learned so confidently. All the best to you, Peter.


This exercise is very confused because there some words that change in en and ed very confused well, I learn more


thanks for this video
its amazing to learned VOC


Thanks for your lesson.


Thanks for your lesson! I have a question for you, if we follow the rule to add “en” to the end of a noun or an adjective to make it become a verb, but it’s not all situations we can do like that. So, we have to learn by heart these words? Are there any trick to recognise these situation? Thank for your help!!!


Hello, Rebecca! Thanks a lot for your lessons, I learn and injoy your positive :) You are an enchantress! All the best to you! :)


Hello M.r.s Rebbeca,I have a question for you about your lesson. I could notice that various of the words that you turned up in verbs seem to be past participle verbs one time they are changed and put in context, it would be correct to say they have became or fit in some of the cases as past participle verbs or they are just converted words or maybe present tense verbs? Because for example, If I say: She whiten her teeth,that makes sense like a past participle tense. Thanks, I hope your answer.


Rebecca your lesson is so good i learned a lot from this.. i have a question by “en” we can make an adjective or a noun a verb and by adding “ed” in the last we can use it in past tense but what about other tenses can we make past/present participles?


Thank you for the lesson, Rebecca. I was wondering should we use s or ing for certain sentences as you informed to add ed for past tense. And it had been confirmed by the 10th question which was: You’ve been here all day. Why don’t you go home? If the situation WORSENS, I will let you know. (becomes worse). Thank you, Rebecca.


Thank you a lot of,your lesson is certainly a good way to improve our English.


Dear, Rebecca, could you also explain to us the rules to use ending -fy in verbs.Is it the same as using -en? In which cases we can make verbs with -fy and -en?
Thanks a lot!
Best regards.


Very helpful trick, thank you so much Rebecca! I’m afraid I didn’t understand when I have to put “en” as prefix instead of suffix. Is there any rule about it?


great , strange , and important lesson
thank you so much
I made one mistake because I did not pay attention to the spelling .


Very interesting lesson Rebecca. Congratulation!!!!

Hasitha Perera

Got 10/10.
However, Question:

Usually, when there is one verb present already we use grand after a TO. For example, “she used cold cream to softening her hand.” If I write ‘she used cold cream to soften then hand” would that be grammatically correct?

I also find difficult while writing letters:
“Looking forward to hear/hearing from you.”…what to chose?”

Kindly help. Thanks.


I thank you again for another wonderfully explained
subject. You are a great teacher.
I think I have widened my vocabulary thanks to your
amazing teaching skills.

Hi Rebecca,
I think in question 9 the right answer should be sickens not sicken. As the speaker seems to be talking about routine or what usually happens when he watches the horror movies? Could you please enlighten it a bit?


Top! A very interesting lesson.


thank you very much!10/10


Thanks Rebecca. I`m really enjoying your lessons and you are very talented in delivering your ideas.


In the beginning, I frighten about this test. I deepen my knowledge about how to broaden my vocabulary. It saddened myself, I realised that I needed to look up my Diccionario some adjectives and nouns. Now I have strengthened my English skills in 10 minutes. I need to say “Thank you very much”, Rebecca.


Thank you so much, Rebecca, your lesson is so helpful and very interesting
