I have taught English for over 7 years and host two English podcasts. I am always interested in what struggles or problems English learners have when learning English. Please let me know what struggles you have and I will try to comment below with ways to fix it. Ask me anything.
Hello, I'm living in an English-speaking country, but still have a lot to learn. I still can't understand the difference between "too" and "also" and where they should be placed in the sentence. For istance: "I have a red car too" or "I have a red car also". "Are you also French?" or "Are you french too?" Thank you.
Hello, Teacher. This is a little essay which I wrote last night. Could you check and comment it for me, please? Thank you so much.
Some people talk that we should work together with many members, however, others do not think so. Now, I will discuss this problem. First of all, group work brings a number of benefits. The main one, in my opinion, is that it enable solve plan very quickly, for example, lots of people do together so the plan will complete very soon. And dividing obvious work for each member makes the process is finished very quickly. In addition, because there are many members in group so having a number of different ideas from these members. This connection helps the process is more convenient and it also brings many different suggestions for any trouble which they have. On the other hand, the main drawback, from group work, is quite obvious. Take example, some individual person do not finish work on time so the plan will not complete as they hope. Otherwise, if one member shifts the responsibility to another person, it will makes others member feel uncomfortable and angry with this member. Likewise, almost members work hard while other are playing game, watching a film or doing individual work. Then, all of thing makes members of group lose enthusiasm and uniting. In short, working in group brings many problems and advantages for all of members.
Hi Ron,Grammar is so confusing. Im reading an English Grammar book and Im focusing on the connection words like adverbs,having said that I found out that Although is considered as a Adverbial clause in the statement: I have no intention of giving up although I am fed up. But Although has another function as a connective word or conjunction in the statement: She listened to me, althought she was very busy.
The meaning is similar, but my point is when is functioning as adverbial clause and when as a conjunction. how can i recognize it? Thanks,I really apreciate your time.
