Hi there, I have some questions as follows.

"I glued all the draws in my teacher's desk shut."

In this line, draws seems to be drawers, which is normal?

Is there another word for "shut" above?

I accidentally blew up science block.

What is a science block? Is there other example about "block" with a similar meanings as here?

Thanks.

Hi,

"I glued all the draws in my teacher's desk shut."

In this line, draws seems to be drawers, which is normal? 'Draws' is a mistake.

Is there another word for "shut" above? closed

I accidentally blew up science block.

What is a science block? A group of buildings, probably in a university, that are used for scientific purposes.

Is there other example about "block" with a similar meanings as here? eg The history block. The administration block.

Best wishes, Clive
Hi Clive,

I do not understand "shut = closed." I understand desk shut should be a noun. Could you explain this more carefully? Thanks.

Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Both shut and closed are adjectives in this context.
It seems that another expression for the first sentence could be

I glued shut all the drawers in my teacher's desk.

It is just the phrase "glue something shut", right?
Hi,

Yes. glue something shut glue something closed

No. Clive answered quite clearly above:
