Please, make the necessary corrections:

- Joshua gives computer classes at an association near his home (could it also be: ...at an association close to his home ?).

- Carol often studies Dutch in the evening, on Tuesdays and Thrusdays.

or

- Carol studies Dutch on Tuesdays and Thrusdays, in the evening.

or

- Are both forms acceptable?

- 'Assignments of the day' or 'Day assignments'?

Thanks,

Hi,

Please, make the necessary corrections:



- Joshua gives computer classes at an association near his home. OK. 'Gives' means that he is the teacher.

(could it also be: ...at an association close to his home ?). Yes.

An 'association' is not commonly a place where one gives classes.



- Carol often studies Dutch in the evening, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Sounds awkward

or

- Carol studies Dutch on Tuesdays and Thrusdays, in the evening. Sounds better

or

- Are both forms acceptable?

I'd say - Carol studies Dutch on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.



- 'Assignments of the day' or 'Day assignments'?

Both sound a bit awkward.

How you say this depends a bit on the context. eg 'Today's assignments'.

Best wishes, Clive

Anonymous- 'Assignments of the day' or 'Day assignments'?
In addition to Clive's suggestions you could also say "daily assignment(s)."

Hi,

Thanks to Master Clive.
Maybe we can also say:
- Joshua gives computer classes at an association next to his home.

Hi,

No. 'Next to' here means 'beside'.

If I and all my fellow students are sitting in a row in the classroom, the one on either side of me is 'next to' me, but they are all 'close to' me.
