Hey guys, some people want me to teach them English in order to pass the TOEFL test. The matter is, I have never even taken that test yet, and they demand me to teach them English from the scratch. Now what I want to ask: What is the first thing needs to be taught when teaching certain language to someone? Is it subjects? Is it verbs? Is it nouns? Numbers? Or the most common words? If the answer is the last one, what are the most common words in English? Thanks for all your input.

Was it John Adams what said the three reasons to persuade Jefferson? If so, the question is that John Adams, the 2nd President of the United States, could not be what he described himself - "obnoxious, suspected and unpopular". Otherwise, he could not be elected as the President of US. Context: Declaring Independence", Revolutionary War , Digital History, University of Houston. From Adams' notes: "Why will you not? You ought to do it." "I will not." "Why?" "Reasons enough." "What can be your reasons?" "Reason first, you are a Virginian, and a Virginian ought to appear at the head of this business. Reason second, I am obnoxious, suspected, and unpopular. You are very much otherwise. Reason third, you can write ten times better than I can."

I'm Korean, and I have never been to nations spoken English. Please, Would you have this in mind? Look at the below sentence. The immediate goal of the European "peace" movement is to reverse a 1979 NATO decision to deploy a new generation of U.S.-built nuclear missiles starting in late 1983. But some of the movement's leaders are already arguing that the campaign should not cease until nuclear weapons are banned from the entire continent , a condition that would leave the Western European countries vulnerable to the overwhelming preponderance of the Soviet Union in conventional arms. Which phrase does 'starting' modify? - 'NATO decision', 'to deploy', or Whole clause following 'starting' ("The immediate goal ~ U.S.-built nuclear missiles") In advance, thank you for your help.

Khun questioned whether the concept of objective truth actually makes sense at all. (in Indirect question ??) 2. The only reason I get out of bed at all on weekend is because .... 3. Use one statement at all. / You have one at all. 4. He was surprised she came at all. 5. You can come whenever you like - any time at all. 6. Most Catholics who went to mass at all voted for Kennedy. 7. If a thing is worth doing at all, it is worth doing well. This is the account of 'at all' in affirmative sentences of a supervisor in a online dictionary site. 8. This cell phone can be used anywhere at all . (=absolutely anywhere) http://www.learnersdictionary.com/qa/how-to-use-at-all --- a source of this sentence It is certain that In above sentences, 'at all' have quite different meaning in each sentence. How do I have to understand each sentence. In advance, Thank you for help.
