Thanks Setayesh!

Postby behnam » Tue Jul 29, 2014 5:19 pm

Hi friends,

Since grammar is important in every language, as English learners, we have to learn English grammar. As you see, I am busy with setting questions for practising collocations. I asked Setayesh to participate in setting questions for practising English grammar. She kindly accepted my request and posted her first questions that concern future tenses. Thank you very much Setayesh.

I hope you will enjoy spending some time on practising English skills in this thread. I'd appreciate it if you could join us in setting questions or answering to them.

All the best,

I've lost my grammar!

Postby behnam » Tue Jul 29, 2014 5:40 pm

Hi Setayesh,

Thank you very much for your wonderful questions. I am hopeless at grammar. I am terrible at memorizing grammatical points. That's why I often learn English grammar through focusing on the meaning of sentences and their grammatical structures. In many cases, I am wrong, but in some cases it works. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I use my strategy to answer your grammatical sentences. I am not sure about the answers. I just have a try. Please correct my mistakes.



1) By the time I'm 20, I will have been studying English for 10 years.
2) This time next week I will be sitting on a plane to New York.
3) Will you see David this evening? "No, I won't have time".
4) Have you got any plans for when you leave school? Yes I'm going to take a gap year. I've applied for a job in Kenya.
5) What time are you meeting Liam this evening? "At eight outside the Town hall".
6) Can't you take Saturday off? By then you'll have been working for ten days without a break.
7) Don't ring at 8 o'clock. I will be watching/I am watching 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire'.
8) In 5 years time I will finish university and I'll be able to earn some money at last.
9) The train to London is leaving/will be leaving at 6.13, so let's meet at the station at 6 o'clock.
10) As soon as I save enough money, I am going to buy you a laptop.
11) By the time we got to the party, most people will have gone home.
12) Louis won't be at school tomorrow because he is taking part/will be taking part in a swimming tournament.
13) By the time she leaves music school, she will have been studying for12 years.

Dear Setayesh, please correct me If I am wrong. By the way, please give your reason(mention to the grammatical rules) in case you correct me. Thank you in advance!

All the best,

Hi Behnam,
Thank you very much for answering to the questions. Your answers are correct but as you asked me to mention the grammatical points if needed I just rewrite some of them with some explanations.



************************************************************************************

3)Will you……(see) David this evening? “No, I won’t have time”
The answer can be in 2 forms:

-Will you see David this evening? "No, I won't have time"
-Will you be seeing David this evening? “No, I won’t have time”
(we can use future continuous to ask polite and less direct question about somebody’s plans)

**************************************************************************

7)Don’t ring at 8 o’clock. I………(watch) Who Wants to be a Millionaire
Don't ring at 8 o'clock. I will be watching/I am watching 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire'. ( it’s much better to use will be watching because by this structure you talk about an action that will be in progress at specific point in the future e.g exactly at 8 O’clock as mentioned in above sentence )

***************************************************************************

8) In 5 years time I………..(finish) university and I’ll be able to earn some money at last.
In 5 years time I will have finished university and I’ll be able to earn some money at last. (because we are talking about a complete action or event in the future .)

********************************************************************************


9) The train to London ………….(leave) at 6.13, so let’s meet at the station at 6 o’clock.
The train to London leaves at 6.13, so let’s meet at the station at 6 o’clock. (To talk about things that are due to happen as part of a schedule present simple is preferred to use)

****************************************************************************************

10) As soon as I save enough money ,………..(buy) you a laptop.
As soon as I save enough money, I’ll buy you a laptop.
(As soon as works like IF in this sentence and it’s much better to use future simple here)

***************************************************************************************

I hope it would be useful for all.
All the best
Seti

Thanks Setayesh!

Postby behnam » Sat Aug 02, 2014 4:35 pm

Hi Setayesh,

How are you? I hope you are great. Thank you very much for completing the sentences. Your English is excellent. Your answers are correct, but I've got different idea about two of them. Let's have a look at question 4 and 6!


First, let's consider question 4:

4) He has confidence . I've never known anyone so unsure of himself.

As it is clear, the first part is opposite of the second part. If he has confidence, why is he a symbol of unsureness to his friend? I think the correct answer is:
4) He lacks confidence . I've never known anyone so unsure of himself.

And question 6:
6)I like someone, but I lack confidence to go up to her and ask her out!

When someone lacks confidence, s/he has not got it in almost all situations. However, in this sentence, the person only has not got certain kind of confidence to ask a girl for going out. Therefore, I guess the correct answer is:
6)I like someone, but I haven't got the confidence confidence to go up to her and ask her out!

I am sure you know the answers and the grammatical points. I just wanted to give some explanation of my own choices to people who are following our questions and answers. In fact, many people-through emailing, calling , catting, etc.- have asked me to keep this method going. They have found this method really useful for practising English. I'd like to take this proper opportunity to thank you for participating and to all learners for following the posts. Actually, your emotional connection with us through reading our posts motivates us to continue and encourages us to try our best to keep the flame shining and the flag waving! :lol:

Thank you for reading.

Hi Behnam,

Thousands innocent people are being murdered in Gaza by a terrorist regime of Israel . They Israel soldiers are attacking children, women and civilian people in Gaza and killing them savagely by air fighter ,artillery and shelling . They have called it war , killing undefended people . They are very rude ,because many western countries are supporting Israel , some governments like USA , UK, France are supporting Israel to kill as many as children and women in Gaza. Wolves in sheep dress, what is all people of the world know it. Sometime you see reports in western press about animals , they are worry about animal life. ( e.g some whales have stuck in the beach and lost their lives ) It is absurd to see in western press these subjects , why the criminals are worry for animals , but if thousands of people are murdered in Gaza and they are not worry. Because there is no benefit for them , only what has benefit for them is important ,otherwise they easily kill millions of whales
