Wednesday, March 14th 2018

I got 07/10. Thank you rebecca. It was such a useful lesson. Rebecca ,If we use singular form of the noun ” exam” so we will say ” how was your exam” . Isn’t it?

Wednesday, March 14th 2018

    Yes, it is correct to say:

    How was your exam?
    or
    How were your exams?

    The second is used if you are referring to more than one exam. I wish you all the best, Annie.

Sunday, March 25th 2018

Hi Rebecca:

Maybe this is a little “crazy” but in practise sentence #1 what if you are speaking about, let’s say, John Williams & Charles Williams, couldn’t you say: “Mr Williams were here yesterday” if you are referring to both of them?. As far as I know, Mr has no plural form.

Thanks & greets from Argentina (Hope it is from England someday)
Marcelo.
