Hi. B) How can students be helped with accommodation when they move away from home? Students can be helped in many ways with accommodation in a city away from home, but the most important one is getting financial help. First of all, governments can support students with grants and vouchers to subsidize their rent. Furthermore, they could be supplied with financial help from their families and relatives. Finally, they can work as part-time students in the companies that are relevant to the student's field of study and accommodate their workers.

Hi Everyone, How does the following sentence sound? 1. 'Steven's overalls were dirty because he was fixing his car.' I think you'd say this if someone asked you, 'Why were Steven's overalls so dirty?' However, I prefer this sentence: 2. 'Steven's overalls were dirty because he had been fixing his car.' Is the ONLY reason to use past continuous, in this example, based on answering such a question? I know; it's all to do with context. However, which example do you prefer: 1 or 2? Thanks CC ...

Hi. A) Is rented accommodation expensive where you live? Why/Why not? No. As a matter of fact, I live in a modern city with lots of advanced factories, universities, and hospitals. A lot of people move to the neighborhood I live and they don't usually have difficulty with renting a fine house. Maybe it's due to the low-quality structure of the region and its long distance to the big shopping centers and busy places like that. On the other hand, there are also some regions that rented accommodation is so expensive that only the rich can afford to live.

I have a petty argument with a colleague translator of English about the (in)correctness of the phrase 'In a year or three' (in the sense of 'in a few weeks' which, according to her, is incorrect. I think there is nothing wrong with it. Can anyone (preferably native speakers of Englis) enlighten me here? I like to be right, but hate to be wrong ... Thanks in advance for your speedy reply.

I've found a list of verbs which go with "to infinitive" or "participle", but I was wondering if this is a complete list or if there are verbs missing. I mean there are thousands of verbs out there, how to learn them all? for example just randomly made up sentences: "I explained him doing this" "I toughed myself doing this exercise" "I frightend him doing X" I can imagine putting participle forms or infinitive forms right behind every verb I could find and don't know whether its correct or not. Oh the list I'm referring to: [link]

Hello, I have two questions base of the following context. The first: Is 'much' considered as pronoun in the context ? As we know 'much' used for uncountable nouns whereas 'so much' means 'so much people' that 'people' is dropped. Now, Can we use pronoun like this when the noun dropped is uncountable? is it a fixed rule? The second: According to the all dictionaries, we have the pattern of ' be about to do something' . why do in the following we use 'doing' instead of 'do'? So much in our society is about making more and more money.
