The red part of your instruction is not good English. Is your teacher a native speaker of English?

My thoughts, exactly.

I have the same suspicion. The example is in past tense, but the question sentence used present "reach". That makes it awkward, even if possible.
Yes.

I hope the original poster will tell us the teacher's answers.

grammarfreak up You cannot see I wrote: help me, philip? Clive also finds my exercise difficult so how could I do it? I am always independent in my work, I just would like you all to help me with the questions I do not understand.Up,If you wish to receive help on English, you have to learn to say the magic word. " Please" always works. The way you asked for help is not very polite.
I saw the topic " say please or not " once. Many native speakers said that that was not necessary and they didn't care much about it. I just follow what they think. Your opinion is different.
I"m pretty sure I speak for a lot of native speakers when I say that we appreciate "please" - we do not like to be ordered about.

I have never come across any one native or otherwise who would offer such advice to a learner. I don't know where you learned that from. A " thank you " or " a " please" is a universal form of appreciation. Use it; it will help you
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
'Please' is in my experience such a common and important part of English-speaking culture that I've always felt it my duty to teach that to my students. Language and culture are inextricably bound together in my opinion.

Up, you didn't tell us if your teacher is a native English speaker.
