Thanks a lot for teaching.


Thank Ronnie .I learning a lot with your lessons.




Thank you Ronnie very much for this lesson!!! I have one question about this: Why we say, for example “if I were you”, and not “If I was you”? According to this lesson, we should say “Ïf I was you”. Please help me to see the difference here :)


    We say “if I were you”… It doesn’t fit with this lesson because it is a different grammar point (conditionals)!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      many thanks !

      Profile photo of pavel108 pavel108

      I watched a lesson about conditionals, and now I see… Thank you Ronnie immensely for your explanation, you are, without doubt the best teacher on Engvid, and at all :)


      so mom…teach me about tht” different grammar point” such if i were u…cuz when i listen to beyonce song with title if i were a boy…i really wanna know..why if i were not if i was


        Because songs never have correct grammar!

        Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

          Happy to hear that, I needed to know about learning by listening to songs. Thank you for clear explanations always, and I love your style, you are a very nice teacher.


          i am very happy with you.your teaching style is very clear .thank you so mouch.


          oh dear, songs will never be the same if they used correct grammar.

          Profile photo of mdredzuan mdredzuan

        if i were a boy –> conditional if
        exception for I, we should use were.
        all ‘was’ should be replaced with ‘were’ because we are imagining.
        hope it helps.. ;)

Hi Rohnie,

I am new for the site.I am having some questions.

1. How and when to you the supporting verb “ask”,”asked”.

eg:I have asked him to drop you mail.
I will asked him to communicate with you regarding this and asked him to send you an email.
I have asked him about this ,he asked me to call you or email you.
I asked him about this,but he asked me to give the exams.

I have not found any related topic about this.If you are having any video related to this please share the url.


Profile photo of pravdesh pravdesh

    I am not so good at english, but I will try to explane you a little bit. You mentioned three verb tenses in english: Present perfect, Past simple and Future simple. Try to see the difference in some english book, but you use Past simple when you talk about action which is finished. For example: I watched the movie which was very interesting. We use Present perfect when we talk about action that began in the past and still lasts or action was finished at some point in the past. This verb tense is the most difficult because many languages don’t have this tense, and it is complicated to comprehend. And finaly future tense we use when we talk about our intentions, what we are planing to do in the future. This is very similar with Going to, but however there is a big difference. For example: I think we will go to the party tonight. And you never use past form after verb Will, remember, never. After Will you always use the basic form of the verb. I hope this helps, bye ;)


    ask is present tense, asked is past tense, have asked is present perfect!
    I will ask him to communicate with you regarding this and ask him to send you an email. (future= will+base)
    I have asked him about this ,he asked me to call you or email you. (have asked = present perfect, he asked= past)
    I asked him about this,but he asked me to give the exams. (asked = past).

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      Great. I love the way to teach. <3


So “was” is the past form of the verb to be used in the singular person and “were” is the form which we use in the plural person except of the pronoun “you” where we use “were” as well.

Hi Ronnie

Could you tell me how do I know correct sentences like sometimes people says

Where is the library?
Where the library is?


Who broke the T.V.
Who did break the T.V.

Because I think when we use verb we place do/did/is/am/are/was/were before the verb or it depends upon our tone/situation.



    “Who did break the T.V.” is just wrong!
    “Could you tell me where the library is” is the only way that “Where the library is” could be correct.

Profile photo of miran miran

Thanks Ronnie ,But actually my question was when to use ‘ask’ and when to not.like i have asked you the question.I have asked someone to do this task and he replied me to do another task or try this way.

eg.I have asked him about this ,he asked me to call you or email you.

In the above sentence I am talking with the second person about the third person(to which i have asked something).and the third person again replied me to do another task ,like call the second person or email him.

It will be great ,if we can have it’s video.(When to use ask)



those were confused to me
but after your lesson, all those become very claer
so,thank you so much

Just curious, I got the last Q wrong.

Why can’t we say “Weren’t you at the pool today?” ?

To me, it’s a negative question.


    You can say it is just strange (too formal/old/British English). We say “Were you at the pool today?”

    i also asked this question to my school teacher,and she said,when we r supposing then we can use were with I,like here we r supposing if i were a boy,or may be we r using were,for making rythum in the song,,hope it will help u

    Profile photo of simran96 simran96

    if i were a boy –> conditional if
    exception :
    all ‘was’ should be replaced with ‘were’ because we are imagining.

Thank you my gorgeous Ronnie, thanks for everything I learned a lot from specially when it comes of correct use of grammar, ma’am Ronnie i have a question to you, if don’t mind, This is my question! IN WORD ANGRY there are so many synonyms like- annoy/ irritate/fuming/ mad/ livid/ heated.
It is correct instead I Use the word ANGRY!
I change it Annoy or Irritated….
here’s my example….
which one is correct?
you reply is my highly appreciated.. thanks and god bless.

Reynaldo Q Paquingan

    RONNIE GOT ANGRY WITH ME ………correct.
    RONNIE GOT MAD WITH ME…. is ok but I would say Ronnie got mad AT me!!!

    Fuming is a verb so you have to say Ronnie was fuming at me.

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

Hey Ronnie! Thanks very much for this lesson!!


Thanks Maam Ronnie, I really really understand your way of teaching, I am extremely happy from the bottom of my heart…. a million thanks to you!

Reynaldo Q Paquingan

thanks a lot for teaching it’s very well i liken this <<<<<<<<




Thanks for all you lessons Ronnie I like you and I learn a lot of you! ThxThxThx!

I’ve two little questions:
You’ve teach as: Was he happy?
Can you say also: Wasn’t he happy?
(I think yes)

The other question:
You say: mostly you say: ‘wasn’t’ not ‘was not’
On school I’ve learn that you in a formal lettle never use the short way. Is that only in British English or also in Canada and USA?

Profile photo of rick1234 rick1234

    Yes, you can say “Wasn’t he happy”! We use this when we here shocking or surprising news……Eg. He won the lottery then killed himself. “What! Wasn’t he happy?
    You are correct, when we write a FORMAL letter we shouldn’t use contractions!

Hiii Ronni It is really good and nice I am new in this site but I wanna know how to use either-neirher in sentence.


    Either/neither we use when we agree with a negative sentence that we agree with. Ex…I don’t like fish. Neither do I…..or I don’t either. Either comes at the end of the sentence, neither is at the beginning! Check out the lesson on engvid…search for either/neither by Alex!

Ronnie, when do you use “it” and “its” also “lot” “a lot.” Thanks

Profile photo of mamoonkhan mamoonkhan

really nice lecture Ronnie I enjoyed it a lot. Well now I have a question. for your and yours which can be used was/were?

Ayaz Ali

Hi Ronnie! What about with this sentence “If I were you, I’d rather stay away from her”. Could you explain why “I were you” and not “I was you”? Is it possible to use both?

Profile photo of yllsa25 yllsa25

    We do use both. IF I were you is formal and used in writing/business/school.
    If I was you is casual = used to talk to friends.
    However, I always say If I were you…….. When we use subjunctives (wish, possibility, judgement, opinion), we use “were” in the past for I,he,she,it,they,we,and you!!!

    Profile photo of Ronnie Ronnie

      so sorry to disagree, ronnie..
      i think we never use ‘if i was you’ – more possible to say ‘if it was you’.
      as i mentioned before, n actually u did mentioned it at 1st above :
      if i were you –> conditional if
      then i agree with replacing ‘was’ with ‘were’ for wish, possibility, judgement, opinion, etc according to the function of conditional itself.
      i hope this little clarification won’t confuse students anymore.
      keep up the good work, ronnie..
      u did great.. ;)

Thank You Ms Ronnie for the video.
I got a question here.
In this video, you said that “We were happy”.
Were – past tense.
So, is it more correct if we write “we were happy at that time.” ??


    No, it is not “more correct”. When you add at that time, it just tells me when you were happy!

hello Ms. Ronnie. i was bit confused because i’m having a hard time when or where will i’m going to use these tense. well i understand your discussion you explain it briefly in fact i got 4 out of 5. is just that when i browse my notes about your lessons and also with ms. Rebecca about her lesson on simple past tense especially the DID,it feels like i didn’t get it again. well i’m hoping you would answer my question.But, all of you guys doing such a great teaching i admire you all. thank you very much. God bless you all;)

Hi, sorry for my stupid question but i want to know is this British or US pronunciation? Is the pronunciation of “was” different in British and US English? When is pronounced as “wuhz” and when as “woz”? Thank you.


    Yes, all pronunciation is different from British and American. “woz” may be more British.

I have a question not about this lesson.

What is correct for of this:

1.Who I am?
2.Who am I?

I heard somewhere, that’s THIS question to myself (from me to me) can be like #1. Is it true?


    Only #2 is correct!

      Thank you very much for prompt answer!
      Is the site have lessons for reading rules? Like “ie” “u” “oo” “ou” etc. I found just pronunciation for “e-i” and “a-e”, but it not that what I need (want?) exactly.


        Not yet, but keep on watching!

This Canadian has been teaching young and old for ages. Formy students i explain that Present Perfect is a very personal “feeling” tense. The speaker may feel the connection between past and present which may not be felt by the listener – so he may use past simle to repeat this information!

can you help me about my english

Profile photo of kahraman123 kahraman123

please teach me English anyone u did not teach i lost my life.


Thank you Ronnie for this lesson.I have one question: can we ask a negative questions? For example: Wasn’t she the person I know yesterday?

Franco from Italy

    We usually use negative questions when we are suprized at the answer to a positive quesiton or like a tag question.
    Ex. A) Do you like pasta?
    b) No.
    A) You don’t like pasta????
    b) No, I don’t like pasta!
    A) Wow! You are strange!
    You can ask a negative question but the problem is how to answer it! Wasn’t she the person I KNEW yesterday? yes = you agree with the speaker saying yes, she wasn’t the person I knew yesterday.
    A NO answer means you disagree with the comment. No – she was the person you knew yesterday.
    English is very confusing and differs from most languages with negative questions. This is why we usually as positive questions!

hi ronnie ,plz tell me if i’m wrong or right,( what i understand it )

hello ms. ronnie!
might I ask you something?
why is it some people tend to say
“A 5 year old boy jumped into the pool”
instead of saying, “A 5 years old boy jumped into the pool”
what is the difference between 5 years old and 5 year old?
shouldn’t we must use 5 years old than using 5 year old?

Hi Ronnie, how are you?
I’m brazilian and it was in Brazil where I’ve started my English lessons. Now I’m living in the second hispanic country and I’m still studing English.
Here in Chile, the teachers has a peculiar pronunciation and I have a problem to agree with them. For example, WERE and WHERE are the same pronunciation, but to me, WERE sounds different, like a WORE. When I listen you speaking the first E is closed, almost an O. Exactly the same how I have learnt in Brazil.
Let me know your opinion, ok?
Bye, Marcio

Hi Ronnie, how are you doing? I have a question for you. I usually apply the “to be” verb formula (sub + verb + etc) like everyone who studies English, that is quite mechanistic in my opinion, but I get confused while reading something in Internet I found phrases like “If I were President, if I were rich” and others like that that confuse me ’cause in my mind is too much predominant the “to be” formula, and I assume that the correct form is “If I was…” but, I’m afraid not. Can you help me with this problem? Thx.

Hi! Is this correct?
The pain had came and gone.

or is it

The pain came and gone.

    Neither, actually. The first should be *the pain had come and gone* and the second *the pain came and went*.

Hi Ronnie,
I am wandering if you would be able to make a video on the complex use of was and were. For example: If I were to win a lottery, I would buy a house. My question is would you use were in the above sentence even though you are supposed to use was with “I”. I am not sure if question is making any sense but I would really appreciate if you can enlighten me on this matter.

Hi Ronnie your a great teacher,but I’m still confused with the word were. You said we used it with singular subject but sometimes I heard people say ” if I were you, I wouldn,t done that blah blah blah ” Is it right?

Hi Ronnie. I used to think that Jim Morrison of The Doors was using bad grammar when he sang, “If I WAS to say to you…”. I thought the lyrics he wrote should have been, “If I WERE to say to you…”. Your answer to Mark mentioned a future lesson regarding the “Conditional”. I THINK the conditional might just apply here because of the word “If”. I hope so, because I need to salve my huge, wounded male ego. I’m keeping my fingers crossed and champing at the bit impatiently for that lesson to come up. :-) Best Regards Ronnie, Richard456

Hi, Ronnie! Which is correct? If I was rich, I would buy a big house. Or If I were rich, I would buy a big house. I learned that the second one is the correct, but some native speakers use the first one. Thank you! Júlio César from Fortaleza CE, Brazil.

hi ma’m…
how are you doing… ma’m as a tense meanse time and when ever we want to talk about an event that happened in an iterval of time then we always mention that period as today yesterday in time to come…
i mean we give a refrence of tense that when did this action took place…
just like this was and were also show some states or existances or positions in past time so can we call it as past to be tense…
my question is just that can we call all tobe verbs as tobe tenses,,,

Hi Ronnie,

May I ask, what is the present tense of was/were?

Thank you

Profile photo of Lix Nuel Lix Nuel

You learned that when you say “they were”
“we were”
“you were”

but then why is it right to say “everybody was?”

Because everybody means many persons. so why we use was with everybody and not were?

Thanks miss Ronnie. I learned a lot.
