Internet English Resources -Help2say

Message  gerardM le Dim 21 Juil - 12:14

Hi everyone,

Another site on which we can find exercises and other resources -> Help2say
It is a language forum and we will find discussions on various points such as "In/on the street", "Present continuous", "Location of prepositions: in, at, on", "Expression", "Miss or Ms", etc.

A problem seems to be that we cannot give an exact URL - the address is the one of the forum itself and after a few days, it becomes difficult to find the topic... look somewhere between "Questions":

Anyway! Better than nothing!

Hi everyone,

An interesting topic at Help2Say today:
Hello there Smile

I would like to ask if there is a difference between "in the night" and "at night" and the difference between "in summer" and "in the summer". Thanks Smile

Hi Gérard, everyone !
"at night"  expresses an action that occurs
 in that time period.

"I go to bed at night."

 "in/during the night"  expresses an action that occurs over that period of
time

The stars appear at night, but they shine "in/during" the night.
It is the same for "in summer (In that time period) and "in the summer"(over that period of time)

Hi everyone,

A few remarks of mine regarding the tense lesson:
*
- the Past Simple is in the Green Box-80%
- the Present Perfect is in the Blue Box-15%
Did you learn this? or as a learner of British English, dod you use the Present Perfect more often (I've learnt) than the Past Simple (I learnt)")?
* Funny, 1st time I read "1st form of the verb" instead of "infinitive without to"
* what I woudld name "auxiliary" is "helping verb"
* "Progressive"... I used to say "Continuous"

Very good documents (several)!

Hi Muriel,

I didn't have a close look and don't remember whether the responses were given for British or American English but you have to remember it's very different.
Your answers surprise me as I'd say that it's a mixture.

~~ edit
The 3 lists are mixtures of anything, serious to funny, British to Oz...

Hi everyone,

-> What are the differences among alike, like and the same?

... interesting topic.
However,
- to me "differences among... " sounds dodgy! I'd prefer "différences between...".
- note that "the same is usually followed by the preposition 'as' " and not by "than" as many French people do (translating the French pattern)! Sad

Hi everyone,

-> Location of prepositions: in, at, on

Worth it though "on the other hand" is not in the right column!
Very good lesson I'll appreciate as I never know whther I must say "on the list" or "in the list"... though EMT tell me: whatever! Smile

There're easy responses for at the pool or in the pool. Sometimes it's not obvious like "on the train" Wink
There's no good general explanation but remember natives (babies) rather learn their language hearing and hearing...
Didn't you ever repeated an expression in your head to figure out if you heard it, if it is said properly?
My advice: read the lists several times to save the expressions in your brain (like when you were a baby and your parents kept repeating the sentences).

Some expressions are annoying Wink
in the newspaper (in French: sur or dans are acceptable)
on the list (in French: sur or dans are acceptable)
C\'est vrai!! 
French is not easier LOL

Some expressions are surprising:
- on the train affraid 
- on foot
Funny but again, French is not rational.

..

Reading the list of previous lesson...
... some expressions are obvious eg "in" when we can "see" items Inside, in the middle of something... learn the ones that are not obvious.

Some are really funny such as
- "on the ceiling": Gosh! I learned "on" meant higher, above - how to be higher than the ceiling? ;-)
- "on the door": LOL it's narrow to be on that small side up there Smile
My laugh is no mockery though (as funny in French): remember that when you read several times, when you find a reason to leugh or to keep attention, you learn better.

There're expressions that are not on the lists.
For example, people can say "in the street" or "on the street" but the meanings are different.

Good luck! Learn well! Wink

Hi everyone,

-> Subject Verb order
Hello guys, Im having troubles with a grammar rule that I recently got.

There are 5 cases in where you can invert the subject and verb order, I already understood two of them.The other 3 are: - Invert the verb when you use negatives, such once, never, neither and so on. - With conditionals, only when the helping verb in the conditional cluase is had, should, or were. - When you make comparisons, like in "My sister spends more hours in the office than DOES John."

I already read these rules, but Im trying to look for some tips to get these in a easy way.
