Please post your queries. I like answering that kind of question.
Hi Terry

I think that I understand tenses but sometimes I doubt myself and I am doing the CELTA. So when I want to bounce some ideas around I'll take you up on your offer if it still stands. I am a great teacher but English isn't my strongest subject.

You're already on a forum where people ask these sorts of questions! Just be patient. Someone will turn up with a question you'll like.

Do you agree the following is correct (even though the past perfect is unnecessary): Before I went to school, I had eaten a big breakfast.

Now, if you see that as grammatical, answer this. Which is correct here:

1. I got up at 7am. Before I went to school, I ate a big breakfast.

1. I got up at 7am. Before I went to school, I had eaten a big breakfast.

And which is correct here:

2. I arrived at school at 8am. Before I went to school, I ate a big breakfast.

2. I arrived at school at 8am. Before I went to school, I had eaten a big breakfast.

Thanks
Dave: more than happy to help.
Hi English1b3,

This seems like essentially the same query as you posted in your other thread.

I just spent time trying to answer you there. Emotion: crying

Please don't post the same thing in different threads. It causes confusion, and can make people feel that they are wasting their time.

Thank you, CliveEmotion: smile

I posted it here, because Terry personally wanted to answer questions of this nature. I didn't think anyone else would read this thread, so I posted it in a new thread also. Please never think you're wasting your time. I am a sponge; I absorb everything you say Emotion: nodding
It's not clear to me where Terry is suggesting we post our questions. [:^)]
Start here. If a query requires a long discussion, we can always make it a separate thread.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
