Dear Teachers,


  1. If you don’t hear/take my advice, you’ll be very sorry/you’ll feel very sorry.
- Is this natural?


  1. I’m your dream, make you real.
- This means “………….., make you a real person”, right?


  1. She’s usually in bed by 11 PM.
- This means “She just usually lies in bed at 11 PM and does not sleep”, right?


  1. My friends sometimes come round to my flat.
- I think “round” is redundant here, right?


  1. Karen Carpenter used to sing “ We’ve only just begun”
- I think “only” is redundant here, right?


  1. - I often feel very happy after seeing a happy ending romantic/love story film.
- …………………………………after I have seen a…………………………………….

- Which sentence is right?

- Thanks a lot to Teachers,

1. "take advice", "be sorry"
The most natural form is:

You'll be sorry if you don't take my advice.

2. I’m your dream, make you real. This doesn't make sense. Are you sure this is what you heard/read?

3. Most nights she has gotten into her bed before 11 -- with the intention of going to sleep.

4. "round" may be thought of as redundant.

5. "only" may be thought of as redundant.

6. "after seeing" or "after I have seen". Both are correct. You can safely use either one in an ordinary conversation.

Do we have a verb for saying "to make something (fake) look real". Or this is the only way to say?
