I have to present to a class what the difference between really and very.

Is there a difference on the way you use them?

In what case do you use the word(s)?

thanks for that one, but any that can elaborate more into a presentation?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I'll leave that to others.

Marius' link seems to be self-explanatory. Why don't you try to come up with a few pairs of very/really, and we'll help you out in case of errors.
One difference is that the two are used differently to my knowledge. Here are some examples:

I am very thankful.
I am really thankful.

Which one would you use?
Try out our live chat room.
They both to me are the same. =(

How would i present this to a class? and sound smart?
Hi,

You might approach it in terms of informal vs. formal language.

Consider examples like

Tom's a really nice guy in my class.

The Prime Minister has announced to the nation that the Queen is very ill.

Best wishes, Clive
