Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I don't understand why 'He acknowledges that he lost...' If we say 'We like swimming' , we express our general preference. How to say 'I lose election every year' using acknowledge?
I think I'm getting it... Is 'He acknowledged losing...' the same as 'He admitted playing/having played with tigers' which means 'I played with tigers.' ?

But, I still don't know how to say 'I lose election every year' using acknowledge (I acknowledge...)?
Answering to my question, 'I lose the election every year.' after 'acknowledge' transformation looks 'I acknowledge that I lose the election every year.' but this isn't means 'I acknowledge losing...'

Am I right?
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
1. I lose the election every year.

2. I acknowledge that I lose the election every year.

3. I acknowledge losing the election every year.

Sentence 1 is a statement of fact.

In both sentences 2 and 3 you admit to the fact.

Sentence 2 and 3 mean the same thing.

You're right Emotion: smile
but Mister Micawber said 'He acknowledges losing the election.-- He says that he knows he lost the election'

so, 3 and 2 can't mean the same.
without 'every year', sentences 2 & 3 don't mean the same?
