Hi,

I have included my corrections for the following wrong sentences; please can someone explain the nature of my original errors?



(a) I have 25 years. In French, you say it this way. In English, you say it as follows.

I AM 25 YEARS OLD.



(b) Borrow me your pen, will you?

LEND ME YOUR PEN, WILL YOU PLEASE?

A lends B a pen. B borrows a pen from A.



(c) I like my coffee too hot.

COULD MEAN EITHER I LIKE MY COFFEE HOT OR I DON’T LIKE MY COFFE TOO HOT.

I like my coffee so hot that it burns my mouth.



(d) Can you remember me to go to the bank?

CAN YOU REMIND ME TO GO TO THE BANK PLEASE?

'remind me' means 'suddenly make me remember'.



(e) I’ve lived there 5 years ago.

I LIVED THERE FIVE YEARS AGO.

You need to review the meaning and use of the Present Perfect. Use Simple Past here because you are just talkimng about the past.



(f) I am absolutely agree with you

I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH YOU.

'I am agree' is not a correct verb tense. Simple Present is 'I agree'.

(g) You must to decide on your destination

YOU MUST DECIDE ON YOUR DESTINATION.

With 'must', we use the bare infinitive without 'to'.

(h) She remarked the beautiful scenery.

SHE REMARKED ABOUT THE BEAUTIFUL SCENERY.

The verb 'remark' does not take a direct object, except in unusual cases.

(i) It’s not sure it’ll rain today

I AM NOT SURE IT WILL RAIN TODAY.

Say 'I'. You are talking about your own uncertainty.



(j) I’m boring with this exercise

I AM BORED WITH THIS EXERCISE.

Consider this example.

Tom is a very dull person.

Tom is boring.

Mary is bored by/with Tom.
