Hello, dear Benjamin! At the first question, should the object be “him” or “her”? Thank you!

Monday, October 19th 2015

    Hello . I have the same feeling. I think Jelena is a girl’s name . If it is right so we must use “her” . We are waiting forward to seeing the answer Benjamin will make.

Very useful Benjamin. Thanks.

Tuesday, October 20th 2015

Thank you. You’re an emotional teacher.
I have a question to you. I would think “the only child” is used with only “the” article. But then in a sentence I came across “an only child”. Is it also possible?

Very Good Explanation by Benjamin… .
I got Superb sentences somewhere I got the new sentences like the mentioned Benjamin
that is “I’m that guy you met me at the bar on last Saturday” this is very simple and powerful English phrase why because is it can’t easily come while speaking to others if you have conversation as such..
Thank you Benjamin this is you great presentation that I’ve ever seen your previous lessons.. .
