BeginStudentHi,
I have the task :
Rewrite the following sentences, using the words given.

4.This is the first time I have driven a car.(never)
My answer is : I have never driven a car , but now it is the first time . (Am I right?) The second part is awkward. Just say I have never driven a car before.

2) Can't you find your keys? (lost)
My answer is : Have you lost your keys? Good

1) They arrived in Eilat two days ago . (been) - someone he doesn't know what is Eilat , Eilat is a place in israel .

My answer is : They have been in Eilat for two days. Good

Other task :
Choose the sentence that has the same meaning as the numbered sentence.
1) I started on my way an hour ago .
a. I have been on my way for an hour.
b.I arrived an hour ago.
I think "a" is correct , am I right?

2)They have been on holiday since Tuesday.
a.They came back from their holiday last Tuesday.
b.That went on their holiday on Tuesday.
In this question I dont know which one is a correct.

Tuesday is when they started their holiday, so b is the answer - although "went on" isn't as good as "started" or "left for"

Thanks a lot .

Choose the sentence that has the same meaning as the numbered sentence.
1) I started on my way an hour ago .
a. I have been on my way for an hour.
b.I arrived an hour ago.
I think "a" is correct., Am I right? RIGHT
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thanks for two helpers .
"2)They have been on holiday since Tuesday.
a.They came back from their holiday last Tuesday.
b.That went on their holiday on Tuesday.
In this question I dont know which one is a correct.

Tuesday is when they started their holiday, so b is the answer - although "went on" isn't as good as "started" or "left for""

I dont understand why you chose in b . "b" explains that they went on , however , the sentence " They have been ..." in "present perfect " .

I have another questions :
3)How long have you lived in london?
a.When did you live in london?
b.When did you move to london?
My answer is :b
--------------------------------------------
4)When did you last eat fish ?
a.How long haven't you eaten fish?
b.How long have you eaten fish?
My answer is : a
---------------------------------------------
5)This is the first time he has been on a place.
a.He has never been on a place before.
b.He went by plane for the first time .
I dont know this one .

I dont under stand something else 6) They have gone.
They are not here .(I chose)
My question is what's the same maining in this ?

Thanks a lot .

P.S - Fill in the blacks in the following sentences.Choose the correct word or words in brackets.
I haven't succeeded in this one from 10 exercises in the page:
10) Do you see that house?Shakespeare_____(has lived/lived)there for a while. - for a while it's hint to present perfect tense in this sentence?
Tuesday is when they started their holiday, so b is the answer - although "went on" isn't as good as "started" or "left for""

I dont understand why you chose in b . "b" explains that they went on , however , the sentence " They have been ..." in "present perfect " .

have been ...since - this shows they are still on holiday.

I have another questions : (another means 'one other'. You should say 'I have some more questions'.

3)How long have you lived in london?
a.When did you live in london?
b.When did you move to london?
My answer is :b

I think it's the closest, yes, but it isn't identical in meaning.
--
4)When did you last eat fish ?
a.How long haven't you eaten fish?
b.How long have you eaten fish?
My answer is : a

Again, it's the closest, but not identical in meaning. It's also very clumsily phrased.
--
5)This is the first time he has been on a place.
a.He has never been on a place before.
b.He went by plane for the first time .
I dont know this one .

I take it you meant 'plane' not place. a is the equivalent.

I dont under stand something else 6) They have gone.
They are not here .(I chose)
My question is what's the same maining in this ?

With 'they are not here' they might never have been here. With 'they have gone' it means they were here in the past.

Thanks a lot .

P.S - Fill in the blacks in the following sentences.Choose the correct word or words in brackets.
I haven't succeeded in this one from 10 exercises in the page:
10) Do you see that house?Shakespeare lived there for a while. - (has lived would only be ok if Shakespear were still alive and still living there)
Thanks , but you didn't answer me to question number :3,4,5

something else :"I haven't succeeded in this one from 10 exercises in the page:
10) Do you see that house?Shakespeare lived there for a while. - (has lived would only be ok if Shakespear were still alive and still living there)"

if I change it to Roy instead Shakespeare it will be that : "Do you see that house? Roy has lived there for a while . that means he is still living there .
am I right?
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Did you miss the big, rig stripes? Those had the answers.

Yes, Roy has lived there for a while means Roy is still living there.
