  1. Hi, Just wanted to share this with others. Hope it's allright. It's a free LMS software. You can create courses, lessons, exercises, quizzes, interact with students. https://tmsonic.com/soniclms-learning-management-system Enjoy
  2. Hi, I got a little bit confused with this, what's the difference between disculpe and permiso when I want to say "Excuse me"? And also: Permiso, disculpa. Do they have the same meaning?
  3. In the second sentence you actually smoked the cigarette. That was the reason for you to stop, interrupt whatever you were doing.
  4. If you use instead without of, put at the beginning or end of the sentence. i.e. He didn't reply. Instead, he turned around and left.
  5. "I stopped smoking." => In this sentence you actually gave up your bad habit. You don't smoke anymore. "I stopped to smoke." => In this sentence you interrupted an activity in order to light a cigarette and smoke it.
  6. Hehe.... Karma please
  7. If you are a beginner then you won't have to worry about relative clauses for a while. Anyhow, a relative clause is a clause that is introduced by a relative pronoun (who, whom etc.) There are three types defining, non-defining and connective. Although most people are only aware of the first two. For example: "The man who told me this refused to give me his name." 'who told me this' is the relative clause here. In this case this is also called defining relative clause because if we leave out the relative clause from the sentence, it becomes too ambigous and will not be clear which man we are talking about. Now it has probably occured to you that from a non-defining relative clause you can leave out the relative clause without compromising the meaning of the sentence. The only thing you have to pay attention is to enclose the non-defining relative clause between commas. Connective clauses don't describe their nouns, just continue the story. i.e. I told Steve, who said it wasn't his business. Use the RC after the subject of the main verb. Hope that helped
  8. Hi, Does anyone have any experience in teaching English in China? Do yo need any special training other than a teaching degree? How about visa and this kind of stuff?
  9. Hi, How do you say this expression in Spanish: "A penny saved is a penny earned"
  10. The first (such) is the correct one. Use 'such' if you want to modify an attributive adjective that appears before a noun. i.e. 'such nice children' You can use 'so' to modify predicative adjectives i.e. 'Those kids are so noisy.'
  11. 'L' stands for Linking or if you want to be more precise 'copular' verb.
  12. I think they should be like this: I have been told he will go to the pool. I had been told he would go to the pool.
  13. You should use 'who', but I'd change the 'since at' part to 'from'.
  14. When to use present perfect and past simple often causes problems for English learers. This video explains perfectly the differences between the 2 tenses
  15. Hi, Would you share some of your favourite speaking activities you use when teaching present simple?
