Hi, Gill! Thank you! Useful lesson!

Wednesday, October 14th 2015

    I agree with you!

      Very useful indeed, I would say. The meaning of the word “Back”-as seen in the lesson- may be determined by context.

      Although in some instances is not that easy because we need to know how this word functions in the sentence.

      In other words, in order to determine the different meanings of a given word in context we need to be familiar enough with the different parts of speech.

      Many thanks for sharing all this with us Gill.

    Hi. these 3 verbs are used for changing a sentence into question or negative when there is no modal or auxiliary verb in the setence :
    They live in Tehran.
    Q : Do they live in Tehran?
    N: They do not live in Tehran.

    She can bake a cake.
    Q: Can she bake a cake?
    N: She cannot bake a cake.

    He went home.
    Q: Did he go home?
    N: He did not go home.

    Please don’t forget: Did is used for simple past tense for all subjects.

    Do & Does are used for simple present tense . But Does for singular third person and Do for the other.
    I hope it helps. Best regards: soei

Hello, Gill.

I would like to tell you, I am interested in reading a history book in English but last week I went to a library and read some history books, I feel they are difficult to read, Oh dear! I need to open dictionary for finding many words that I did not know.

So, now I believe you can suggest me a tip how to read English history books.

(The books that I read like World history, Western Union History, Colonial States etc.)

Thank you so much.

Dear Gill

Thank you a lot for this lesson!

Wednesday, March 9th 2016

Thank you, specially for the phrasal verb.

Wednesday, April 13th 2016

There are some mistakes on the next short text. Could you find them?

This lesson is about the very useful word ‘back’. It could be use as a verb, an adverb, a noun, an adjective, and it is very common in phrasal verbs. Gill has give us a nice explanation of the mean of each one use, and some very clarify examples related. Noum: Do you want to sit at the back of the bus? I really can’t because my back is itching. Better we could meet us in the back of the stadium. Adjective: the back part of the garden doesn’t have any flower, maybe I could sow some seeds, those are in the back of the garage. Adverb: you will be back to your room hotel soon, because I will come back tomorrow morning. Verb: I’m going to baking at this corner, then back me when you are ready. PV: you should backed down when you understand your are not right. It would be great if we could make a backup of our memories. 0k, I will back off, thanks Gill!
