Hi,

Please try to write some examples of sentences using these words. Then we can check them for you. That will save us from having to write long explanations about those aspects you already know about.

Best wishes, Clive
thank you Clive,

ex1: I will try ( no sleeping / not to sleep )
ex2: I'm going to my work, ( for working / to work )
ex3: the tempreture today is about 30
ex4: I need to buy a shirt ( for the work / to ware it in the work )
ex5 : I don't want to go to the shop ( for shoping / to do shoping ) today

I read in BBC news ( the tempreture is of 30 Celius) , is this true? or just the british people use the previous expressin , I need to learn american english language.

thanks a lot and best wishes.

Hi,

ex1: I will try ( no sleeping / not to sleep ) Both OK, but 'not to sleep' is very much the normal thing to say.
ex2: I'm going to my work, ( for working / to work );to work
ex3: the tempreture today is about 30OK
ex4: I need to buy a shirt ( for the work / to ware it in the work ) for work or to wear at work
ex5 : I don't want to go to the shop ( for shoping / to do shoping ) today I don't want to go shopping . . Go shopping is a standard phrasei

I read in saw on the BBC news ( the tempreture is of 30 Celius) , is this true? or just the british people use the previous expressin , I need to learn american english language. It's incorrect to say the temperature is of 30 Celius. Just say the temperature is 30 Celsius.

well, i have the same problem /i have same problems. where to i use (a) /when i gonna use (a) where i can use (a)

now pure examples : "this is a car" <that feels correct . (this is an example) - cannot put a there, feels so wrong:/
but let's go on with this one: "Jimmy is looking for advice on a car design" - that feels odd. "Jimmy is looking for advice on car design" -and that feels wrong

so it seems that i can not use "a" when some word with action going on after the possible "a".
"this made my head spinning around", crap..<even that feels wrong. well "this is the car" "this is a car"- which one is wrong?
well i have used the when i want reader to concentrate into that word i put after the. "this man is a jerk" "that man over there is mad"
please help me:(
Hi,
You have mixed your examples and your comments together, in a way that confuses me. Your lack of capital letters and your creative use of your own version of punctuation also makes it hard for me to follow your comments.

Think of it this way.
You walk into a room where I am, and you say 'I saw a student today'. I might say 'Oh, that's nice', or I might not even say anything at all. It's the first time this student has been nebtioned in our conversation.

You walk into a room and say 'I saw the student today'. I'd probably ask 'Which student?', because it sounds like you are referring to a specific student that you think I am already aware of.

Best wishes, Clive
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thanks for your help. Emotion: smile

I have a blog I'm very pleased if someone would check in to show me the basic mistakes i made. And i have a question, is that "very buggy english there, rather faulty?"
Hello clive

I think that your comments on what juhan wrote are right , there is something ambigous.

Best wishes
Still have the problem, i am a bit unsure about the English in my blog admissibility. My main goal is obviously not to wrote an English super properly(because i am unable to get that super skill for tomorrow, because maybe i need to add some pictures with comments tomorrow). The plan is rather to show my stuff with readable comments. It's unacceptable that attention goes to a very low-level English. So, is that blog very irritating to read, that is the question i am asking for. How bad is that?
