    Proverbs or sayings are really interesting for me to learn; you express many things with only a few words. That’s great, isn´t it?

    However, when someone wants to translate a proverb -in your first language- into a foreign language that’s when the problem arises.

    Thanks for this great lesson Rebecca.

    Regino

      I need your help, Regino. I’m confused. I don’t know what these sentences mean: “John DOESN’T MIND TO listen to Pop” and ” Mary DOESN’T FEEL LIKE dancing.”

      LizaKolyadko

        Hi LizaKolyadko, how are you?

        I want to apologize for not answering your comment soon Liza. I do not really know what happened; EngVid did not notify me that somebody had sent me a message (comment). I noticed it when I watched Alex’s last Video on proverbs and remembered that Rebecca had made a video on proverbs too. So , I went over Rebecca’s video and it was only then when I saw your comment Liza.

        Here there is some information that may clarify your doubts about the use of MIND and FEEL LIKE.

        John doesn’t mind (LISTENING) to listen to Pop music = This means that . . .

        . . .he can listen to Pop music or or perhaps any other, for example, classical music. Either (Pop or Classical) is fine with him.

        Mary doesn’t FEEL LIKE Dancing = This means that . . . she does not WANT to dance; she does not WANT to do it.

        Hope it still helps, better late than never.

        All the best LizaKolyadko, Please don´t lose touch.

        Regino

    I got 100%, Thank you Rebecca!

    Hello Nadacocio

    salarzai

oh, very good

drmroshdy79

My score was perfect! Ya~y :D I like “Time is money” best in your lesson. Thank you, Rebecca :)

Happy04

    Hi, Happy04!

    I don’t think that “time is money”. For me “Time is time”… The conviction that time is money, it’s just a “american way of life”.

    Carol3139

      Hi, Carol3139 :)

      BTW I like the word “Time flies,” too. Sounds like “Time is money.” “Time is time”…I see. “So many man, so many minds” isn’t it? Thank you for your reply :)

      Happy04

        Hi, Happy04 =)

        I prefer “Time flies” and you gave for me another perspective about it. Maybe when we say “Time flies”, we link also from a way too much capitalist… When we say it, we also link time and money… But money for me is much less than time…

        Thanks for open my mind ;)

        Carol3139

Hello dear teacher Rebecca, another of your greatest lessons! I really look up to your hard work making interesting and quite helpful lessons not only focusing on grammar but also in other skills that I’m sure really help english students worldwide. I would like you to know that I’ve been watching your videos for 7 months so far (I haven’t seen all of them yet, but I will) they have helped me a lot with my english, I’m sure that I improved my skills thanks to your videos and a couple more of other EngVid teachers as well. However, as a spanish native speaker, I’d like to suggest you make a video about the usages of “that” which in our language can be understood in many ways and as a result can be used wronlgy. So please teacher Rebecca, I would really appreciate your helping me and of course many other students. Best regards from Bolivia!

EngBadStudent

    Thank you for your kind and detailed feedback. You express yourself very well in English. I am very glad the lessons on engVid are helping you. Thanks also for your suggestion for a future lesson. My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Thank you very much for your interesting and informative lessons on engVid. I have a question to ask you and would appreciate if you could answer it. What is the question for a sentence like: Ali is my third child. or John is the fifth president of this club. Looking forward to the answer. With Regards, Ab Kam

Ab Kam

    It’s a bit tricky.

    The question could be something direct like this:
    Who was / is the fifth president of the club?

    It could also be indirect like this:
    Is Ali your oldest child?
    No, Ali is my third child.

    Hope this helps and all the best to you.

    Rebecca

Hello dear teacher Rebecca thank you so much i really learned a lot of from you keep it up don’t stop

mohssinex

Mrs,whats the meaning of “Life is a flowing river”? is it proverb?

anushanga1

    No, actually, that is a metaphor. A metaphor is a figure of speech in which we compare two things that have something in common and link them to convey a message. In this case the two things being compared are “life” and “flowing river”. We use metaphors quite often in English. For example, if you say:
    “I’m an early bird.” It means you get up early, like birds do. Using metaphors is an excellent way to upgrade your English.

    Rebecca

      My best to you and thanks for the question.

      Rebecca

Thank you for your useful lesson, Rebecca! This is my first time to leave a comment on this site. I’m a little nervous :-(

juneriver

    Welcome and thanks for your feedback.My best wishes to you.

    Rebecca

Hi Rebecca,
IS there any difference between sayings, proverbs, and expressions or they’re all the same?
thanks!

saleh

    Saying and proverbs are almost the same, and relate to some kind of wise advice about life.

    Expressions do not give advice; they are more practical and usually consist of common phrases or sentences used in the language. For example, “May I help you?” and “Bye for now!” are both expressions. All the best to you.

    Rebecca

I got only 80% =(

Sayanuly.Y

    Good job! Watch the lesson again and you may improve. My best to you.

choumay

Thanks for good lessons…here is ones from my language ” ayağını yorganına göre uzat ” which means Live within your income.

osirkeci

    Thanks for sharing. In English, we have an interesting one that means the same thing:

    You should cut your coat according to your cloth.

    My best to you.

    Rebecca

aclesio

    I agree with you

    Carlos Martinho

      That’s good to know. Obrigado and all the best to both of you.

      Rebecca

hmm… If you love someone and discover faults/shortcomings/etc. of him/her later on, doesn’t it make you love him/her even more?

*<( : ]

    Interesting thought… I would say sometimes yes, sometimes no. We all have some faults but I guess it depends how big someone’s “fault” is! All the best to you in love and life!

    Rebecca

      Could you teache us a little bit about homophones?

      Carlos Martinho

That was a great lesson! Thanks:-)

SiddBanana

Hi Ma’am,
I am keen to ask you that the following are the examples I face many times there are no “MAIN VERB” (like is, was, have been, had been, shall be, etc.) between subject & object when some introductions and perusal are written.

1.Following bills raised by us are still unpaid.
2.FIRE RATED DOOR REQUESTED FOR ELECTRICAL DUCT.
3.Many cars parked at basement floor to reduce the congestion.
4.Smoking prohibited for healthy health.

Help in this matter will be very much appreciated.

THANKING YOU.

vishal1234

    In some cases, shortcuts are used to communicate quickly. In other cases, people use incorrect English!
    Some of your examples include passive sentences but overall they are all missing something to make them grammatically correct.My best to you, Vishal.

    Rebecca

100 %.Thank you Rebecca :)

Dear Madam
I decided to leave a comment on EngVid first time. I like your lessons very much. I have kept listening to them since the last year. But I am a bit disappointed by this one. I consider sentence order as the most basic not only in English, but I think in the most used languegaes presumably. You told us about common knowledge which every language child know, in its schoolhood, from the very begining. I aware you do it for every level, but strict sentence order exist on evry level. It is so difficult to express clearly. let me put ideas (questions) in a list.

Firstly How to build up simple sentence in affirmative, interrogative or negative form. It create base for more complicated forms.

Then one can add clauses, then add more clauses, then how joinin tem to base of sentence relatively or independently.

Then how to use clause order (especially interogative or negative form).

Finnaly how to put all that stuff in order e.g. adjectivs, propositions and so on. Of course Tenses should be added.
I know that it is pretty share of grammer, but I dream to have such a compact rules which I can build into my mind and let me make less mistakes in spoken English. I have to finish.

All the best

Thank you ma’am for this very informative lesson.I couldn’t agree more with haste makes waste.For instance As ESL students we always want to master English very quickly like proverb says haste makes waste we should not rush into.Mastering a languange takes long time in order to master English Languange we must live with it in our daily life …
