Beginner English: Present Continuous Verb Tense | Positive Sentences | RAMIREZ ENGLISH

Website: http://www.ramirezenglish.com Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/englishwithkristina Google+ community: http://bit.ly/1PLJoCc Hi everybody, today we are going to talk about the Present Continuous verb tense. Okay, the Present Continuous is a verb tense that talks about what you are doing in the moment that you are doing it, so right now. It also can talk about the things that you are doing that are a longer action, okay, so for a longer period of time. For example, what you are doing this month, what you are doing this year, etc. And the third thing that the Present Continuous talks about what you are doing in the very near future, maybe later tonight or later this week. So in this video, we are going to talk about how to create a positive sentence in the Present Continuous verb tense. Are you ready? Here we go. When to use the Present Continuous, I’m going to show you the timeline here, just like in the other videos. Here we have the past, the present, and the future. Here is when you use the present continuous verb tense in English. We use it to show something that is or is not happening at that very moment. So right now, in the moment. We also use it to show longer actions, so for example, during this month, during this year, etc. I’ll show you some examples in a minute. Then we also use it to show something that will happen in the near future. So maybe later tonight, or later today, or later this week. We can use that, too. So here are some examples. She’s cooking dinner right now. I’m studying English. He’s meeting friends after work. These are all examples of the present continuous verb tense. And now, here you can see how to construct positive sentences in the present continuous verb tense. So first we start with the subject, plus the conjugation of the verb “to be”, remember “am”, “is”, “are”, plus the base of the verb plus “ing”, and you will see examples in just a moment, plus the rest of the sentence. So for example, in the present simple verb tense, we say “My boss talks to me every day.” Now, in the present continuous verb tense, we say “My boss is talking to me.” Okay? “My boss is talking to me.” Subject: my boss, conjugation of the verb “to be”: is, verb + ing: talking, and then the rest of the sentence: “to me”. “I study English” is the present simple verb tense. In the present continuous verb tense, we say “I am studying English.” “She works hard”, again, that’s the present simple. And in the present continuous, “She is working hard.” Okay, so something very important in the present continuous verb tense, especially in spoken English, are contractions. So contractions are formed for the present continuous verb tense, it’s very easy, I’ll show you how. You use the subject pronoun, plus the conjugation of the verb “to be”, and then that is the contraction that you use for the present continuous verb tense. Here are some examples. Subject pronoun plus “to be” conjugation, we have “I am”. What is the contraction for this? You have learned this before, the contraction is “I’m”. Just like the contractions for “to be”: You are, you’re, he, she, or it is turns into “he’s”, “she’s”, or “it’s”. We are turns into we’re. They are, they’re. Okay so these are the contractions that you use for the Present Continuous verb tense. Now let’s look at some examples. I’m working right now. You can say “I am working right now” or “I’m working right now.” It’s more common to say “I’m working right now” just because it’s faster. “She’s studying English this year.” “We’re taking different classes this semester.” “They’re working late tonight.” “It’s making a funny noise.” “I’m thinking about it.” As you can see, all of these examples use contractions with the conjugation of the verb “to be” and the “ing” form of the verb in order to form a positive sentence in the present continuous verb tense. Okay? So this lesson was about positive sentences in the present continuous verb tense, and the next lesson will be about negative sentences in the present continuous verb tense. And after that we’ll go over questions with the present continuous verb tense, alright? So I hope that was helpful, and continue on with the activities below.

The difference between "No" and "Not" in English | RAMIREZ ENGLISH

http://www.ramirezenglish.com Hello everybody and welcome to today’s lesson. Today we’re going to talk about the difference between the words “no” and “not”. A lot of people have asked me this, so I’m going to give you some examples when to use the word “no” and some examples when to use the word “not”. I know it might seem a little confusing at first, but I promise, once you know the basic rules, it’s really not complicated. Alright? So here we go! The first case, we’re going to start with “no”, so the first case when you want to use the word “no” is in a response. In an answer. So for example, “Are you going out tonight?” “No, I’m not.” or “No, I’m not going out tonight. “Did you get my message?” “No, I didn’t get your message.” “Did you do what I asked you to do?” “No, I’m sorry, I didn’t.” These are classic examples of when to use the word “no” in a response, okay, and that’s probably the most common time when you hear the word “no”. The second time you use the word “no” instead of the word “not” is when you are using it before a noun. Remember a noun is a person, place, or thing. Okay, so BEFORE a person, place, or thing. Alright? So, for example, “There is no place for us to go tonight.” Okay? “We don’t know where to go. There is no place to go.” Okay? “There are no stores open today.” Okay? “It’s Sunday, there are no stores open.” Another example you can use is if there is no food in the refrigerator. You open up the refrigerator, “Hey, there’s no food in here.” Okay so you can also use it when you are talking about a noun with an adjective. Okay? So, there is no strong candidate in the presidential election… for example. So you can also use the word “no” before a noun but with an adjective between the word “no” and the noun. Okay, so for example, “There is no strong argument in this case.” Let’s say if you’re in court, “there is no strong argument here”. ...

Adjectives and Their Order | RAMIREZ ENGLISH

http://www.ramirezenglish.com Join the Google+ community to practice your English: https://plus.google.com/u/1/communities/113306035977308937649 Facebook: facebook.com/englishwithkristina Hi everybody, today we are going to be talking about adjectives. We’re going to talk about the order that we put adjectives in when we want to describe something with more than one word in English. So, for example, if you are talking about an old, European sports car, how do you know which adjective comes before the next adjective? How do you know what adjective goes where? That’s what we’re going to talk about in this lesson. So, the adjective that always comes first is going to be what we call a “quantifier”. A “quantifier” is something that puts a quantity on the noun that we are talking about. So, for example, if I want to talk about “a few roses” that I saw earlier, “a few” means three or four. If I want to talk about the “two glasses” on the table, okay that’s two. Anything that quantifies what we are talking about. Adjective number two when we’re describing something is always going to be the quality of what we’re describing or our personal opinion. So these could include words like, “beautiful, ugly,” okay, anything that reflects our opinion about the quality of something. So, if we want to talk about “a few beautiful roses” or “two ugly dogs” then this is the order that we would put them in. First the quantifier, then we have the quality of something or our personal opinion about it. The third type of adjective that we are going to use would be the size of something, okay, when we are talking about size. So, for example, small, tiny, enormous, huge, okay, all of these, usually come after our opinion about something. So, if we want to talk about a “silly, little girl” or a “silly, little boy”. “Oh, don’t listen to her, she’s just a silly, little girl.” Or, “He’s just a silly, little boy. Don’t pay attention to what he says.” “Silly” is our opinion of that person or thing. And then “little” is the size. So think of it that way. You could also use it as - for example - a “beautiful, little dog”… The fourth type of adjective that we are going to use in our order in English here is going to be age. So, anything that is young, old, ancient… any word that tells us how old or how young something is. So, for an example, you could say something like, “Oh, well, he is a funny, little, old man.” Okay? “Funny” is our opinion of him. “Little” is his size. “Old” is his age. Okay? We know he is an old man or an older man. “He’s a funny, little, old man.” Or, “She is a funny, little, old woman.” ... --- Aprende el ordén de los adjetivos en inglés!

Este video es la primera parte de una series de 6 videos y un curse interactive de ingles en RamirezEnglish.com! Aprenderas las siguientes expresiones en ingles: 1. Piece of cake 2. You can't have your cake and eat it, too. 3. On edge 4. Have a nervous breakdown 5. The ball is in your court Todas estas expresiones comunes se usan hoy en dia. Gracias por aprender con nosotros y esperamos que lo disfruten! Hi guys, it’s Kristina. Today we’re going to talk about what I think is one of the most difficult parts of learning and language, and that is idioms! Idioms or expressions, however you want to say it. I’m going to do this similar to the way I did the phrasal verbs course. The phrasal verbs course is a free course on the website RamirezEnglish.com, the link is below if you’re watching the video on YouTube. There are going to be all kinds of worksheets and activities that go along with this course, it’s going to be really cool, so definitely check it out! All of these are going to be very common idioms. I’m not going to give you idioms that you would hear back 30 years ago or even 20 years ago. These are going to be idioms that you use today. So, our first idiom that we are going to learn is “piece of cake”. Make sure you look below here to see how to spell it, “p, i, e, c, e,”. Piece of cake. That means, “it’s easy”. Okay? That? That’s a piece of cake! Learning expressions and idioms in English, piece of cake! Maybe. But anyway, you get the idea. So it’s something that’s very, very easy. So number two on the list here is “you can’t have your cake and eat it, too”. What does this mean? Think of this as “you can’t eat your cake, and then have it right here in front of you at the same time.” Once you eat your cake, your cake is in your stomach. So you can’t have it both ways. Think of it as: if you buy a really big, fancy house, what happens? You normally have to work a lot of hours to be able to afford that house. You can’t be lazy and sit on the couch all day watching TV and a afford a big, nice, fancy house. Not in reality, anyway. You have to work for it. So you can’t have your cake and eat it, too. You can’t have it both ways. So number 3 is “on edge”. “On edge” just means really nervous or tense about something. Maybe you took the IELTS or the TOEFL, some big English exam, and you’re really nervous because you don’t know the results of that exam. Maybe you’re a little tense or a little… on edge. Okay, calm down, it’s alright, you probably passed, it’s alright… that’s “on edge”. So number four is to “have a nervous breakdown”. Hopefully, this doesn’t happen to any of you. A nervous breakdown is a collapse, a physical and psychological and mental collapse where you cannot handle all the anxiety and stress that’s happening in your life, so you just have a nervous breakdown. So for example, John has been up every night for a week because the baby has not stopped crying, he and his wife are fighting all the time and he thinks that they’re going to get a divorce, and he’s about to lose his job because he’s not performing well. He couldn’t handle all the stress, and he just had a nervous breakdown. Poor John. Number five is “the ball is in your court”. Or the ball is in his court, or her court. What does this mean? It means that basically two people have been communicating, usually through email or text message or maybe a phone call or something like that, and they’re trying to see who is going to make the first move. Who is going to call whom first? Who is going to send a message to the other person first? So you hear it a lot when people are trying to get together because they like each other and they’re going to start a relationship.. maybe.. so, you say, “Well, I don’t know, I sent him a message, so the ball is in his court now. But it doesn’t have to be relationships. You can use it in any kind of situation. Maybe you sent an email to your boss and now the ball is in his court to respond to you. That means you’re not going to try to communicate until they answer you back. “The ball is in your court.” Or his court, or her court… it’s in somebody’s court! Well, guys, that’s it for now. I hope you enjoyed this video. There will be more to come about idioms or expressions in English. Try to use these as much as you can when you’re speaking, when you’re writing, right now so that you can remember it in your mind and won’t forget it later. Alright? Take care!
