Hello Hamoody,

Welcome to the forum. I think people were a little bit daunted by the number of questions here, you might get more response if you ask everything separately.

let's start with days, months and year. on a day (on Wednesday) but in a month or year (in September, in 1987).

i am on my way to come to you ? is it right. correct

or i am in my way.? incorrect

please, if u can tell me some differences between at.and on?

thank you so much

Prepositions are one of the hardest parts of learning English. They are not always very logical. Sometimes it's just a case of learning which is correct in each context. If you use the search facility in this forum you can find lots of help and advice and previous questions on prepostitions.

by the way, i have small question about clean and wash

do they have the same meaning. can i say i wash my dishes

or i am cleaning my dishes? We usually say wash dishes in British English but it doesn't really make much difference.

how about body? wash your body, or clean ur body? normally wash your body.

.. before i finish. really smaaaal point

how about wipe and swap? I think you must have a mistake here as there words are not even slightly similar in meaning.

do they have the same meaning , too?

thank u very much

i really appreciate ur helps
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Some people might be more inclined to reply if you use correct forms when you know them -- for instance, I instead of i, you instead of u. I know these shortcuts are common on the internet, but some people feel they are out of place in a forum dedicated to correct English. Everyone here makes choices about which posts to answer, and personally I find myself less willing to spend my time trying to help someone who can't take the time to type out y-o-u. I hope this reply does not offend you -- I am honestly explaining why I did not reply the first time I read your post.
Hamoody_usaHello, everyone

How are you ?

I am glad to be with you in the best forum for learning English.

My English is not perfect.

I've been learning for a year and a half.

However, I have some questions. First of all, if I make any mistakes, please correct me. OK. Please have a look at everything in blue. Emotion: wink


My question is about the subject (In view of the fact that you asked a number of questions, it would have been better to say "One of my questions ...")

at: a specific time (at 8:30, at noon)

on: a specific day or date (on Tuesday, on June 11th)

in: a month, year, season (in June, in 2001, in winter)

When should I use those , for example? For more detailed information, please use the search function on this site and/or post a new, more specific question.


Let's start with days, months and year.

Second, sometimes we use at with school but ohertime we use in ,,{{ really confusion))
"He is at school." --> This basically tells you where he is (location).
"He is in school." --> This is more the idea that he attends school.

What is the correct sentence:

I am on my way to come to you ? Is it right? No, try this: "I'm on my way to your house."

or "I am in my way."? The word 'in' is wrong. "I am on my way" means that I am on my way to a place that has been mentioned in the broader context.

please, if u can Could you please tell me some differences between at.and on? There are many differences. Please post specific and separate questions.

Thank you so much

By the way, I have a small question about clean and wash.

Do they have the same meaning? Can I say "I wash my dishes." Yes, this means you wash your dishes regularly.


Or "I am cleaning my dishes"? Yes, this means you are cleaning/washing your dishes now.

How about 'body'? wash your body, or clean your body? It would be more typical to use 'myself' or to word it completely differently: "I washed myself." or "I took a shower/bath."

.. Before I finish. really small point

How about wipe and swap? I assume you must mean 'swab'. http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=swab&r=66

Do they have the same meaning , too? No: swap

Thank you very much.

I really appreciate your help.
Hi Hamoody
I agree completely with Nona and khoff. In the future, please limit the number of questions in a single post and please try to make your questions more specific.

I have corrected the errors in your post (in blue). Please use proper spelling, capitalization and punctuation! I've also given you some answers, many of which are the same as Nona's answers.
