I agree with Lynne:
1 b
2 They are all OK.
rhman seems to be saying that the sentence sounds like the construction is giong to begin itself (and I agree), but there is nothing wrong with the sentence as written.

Ipad book for English teachers!
Hi, I ´m an English teacher from Barcelona and I ´ve created an ibook to improve English writings. I ´ve been collecting expressions from my students ´ letters and essays and I decided to publish an ipad "book" you can download. I think is really useful not only for students who want to pass their ESOL exams but also for teachers like me.

I hope you like it!

Dear friends,

Happhy holidays for those who can enjoy summer holidays right now! I ´m on holiday at last after a very hard school year. I need your wise advice about a new course I have to teach in September, we  call it ´investigation monographic job ´. It is for upper-elementary students of English and we only have one hour a week. Students have to prepare a kind of project throughout the course about a topic, I ´m not sure about the topic. Have you got any ideas? It is the first time I have to do it and we have very little time, as I said just one hour a week!  One topic can be ´English Speaking countries in the world ´. In the very beginning we have to work how to write a monography... perhaps it is better to work in twos or threes. What do you think? I would appreciate any ideas. Smile

It would sound better if your student wrote:

I will acquaint the bank manager with my ideas and plans to start my own business"

Course Book For A & B Junior !!!
Can you recomend a course book for A & B Junior ?
I had a look at some books but nothing seems right.
I had been using OXFORD "Rainbow" but unfortunately it is out of print.
the Ideal course book should include Glossary / Picture Dictionary , Workbook, video, interactive software, extra computer exercises, songs, karaoke ...

Thank You !

Help on Worksheet Making
Dear Friends!
I have already made powerpoint worksheets. I have seen many colorful worksheets in eslprintable.

But  I really don ´t know how to make it with word document so that it has beautiful shapeful MARGINS and BACKGROUNDS with Microsoft Office Word. I know the standard page layout page border, but the borders are too simple even the shaped ones. If there is a software or website from which I can get background, Please help me friends!

Adding a colorful boarder can be achieved in Office 2013 by going to the design tab on the ribbon>page color>fill effects>picture (you browse for a picture on your computer and it becomes the background). Then you have to insert a solid colored shape to cover up the part of the background that you do not want to show, leaving only the boarder.

Earlier versions of Microsoft Office work differently. In one version I read that you have to click on the header and drag an image onto it in order to use it as a background.

I hope one of those methods is right for your version of Word.

http://all-free-download.com/free-vector/border-patterns.html has little squares of patterns that are for borders.  I searched on  design pattern on borders to find some.
