Hey, i'm new here. My name is Tim and I got this forum from a friend of mine. He told me that this might help me with the problem i got. I have a brother that is 16 years old and i'm 23( in the US Army). He needs help with his english. The teacher gave him the study guide, but no answer on it. So i ask him to give the study guide to me and i'll help him with it. Well, since i'm busy soo much on school and my job, it's impossible for me to do this. I was wondering if you have some time and help me with this problem. I really appreciate it. Here's the problem.

Hi Tim,

Welcome to the Forum.

Your brother is lucky that he has you to help him. However, I'd like to make two comments.

First, I'm happy to try to help people, but I won't do it just because they are to busy to try themselves first. I'm busy like you, with my job and with my life.

Second, I hope you don't mind me suggesting that you are not doing your brother a favour by approaching it this way. It's better if he tries himself, first. Surely he has a grammar book, or even a dictionary, that he can at least get some idea from, before asking others? If he has absolutely no idea, then he won't understand the answers we give him.

I recommend that you ask him to try first himself, and then he or you can post his answers here. Then I, or someone else, would be very happy to take the time to try to help him with a quick response.

As I said, he's lucky to have your concern and help.

Best wishes, Clive

That's right. He already fill in the blank for his study guide and I manage to fill in some answer my sefl. His test is on April 10, 2006. Like i said i have not much time. I wish i could have time, but that's impossible for me to do. Thanks for your attentions. Hooah.
how do you know what the answers are if you took the study guide test
