SCHOOL Activities   
Can you suggest me some SCHOOL activities which must attract the students for speaking English at SCHOOL and Make the students Talk about it all day?Can you help me please???

22 Nov 2014


You can use ītime-saver speaking activities ī. You can find it on the net. You can also use sports headlines to encourage them.
By the way suggest is never followed by a direct personal object. Use the preposition to :
If this happened to one of your friends, what would you suggest her ?
If this happened to one of your friends, what would you suggest to her ?
He suggests parents that they should adopt a different way of bringing up their children.
He suggests to parents that they should adopt a different way of bringing up their children.

Present Simple or Continuous??   
Hi everybody,
A friend of mine asked me a question she encountered in a book called picture discussion:
in the book there is a picture and the description below :
They check the passengers passports carefully before allowing at the counters inside the departure gate. Immigration officers sit behind these counters. They check the passengers passports carefully before allowing them through to board aeroplane. An aireport security officer speaks speaks to a young boy on rollerskates. He tells the boy that he cannot skate here.
 the sentences in bold are in the present simple tense but i can īt understand why! Are they grammatically right?
looking forward to your answers!

A new tense? A really weird construction :)   
So, I came across a very strange sentence a while ago in a text book.
It sounded like this:
"Have you have been paying attention? "
It sounds absurd - according to the grammar I have been taught and teach, it should be:
"Have you  been paying attention?"
So, I am quite prone to thinking that it was a misprint...
Does any of you, dear community members (esp. the native-speakers), have any other suggestions?
 If the first sentence is NOT a misprint, what can be the name of the tense? :D
The textbook where I came across this curious thing  is Oxford Solutions.

Czech Republic

Which tense can be used   

Dear colleagues,

I´ve found this joke on the internet:


Mum, do all fairy tales begin with “Once upon a time”?

No, darling. Some start with: “Sorry I’m so late, darling, I was detained at the office."


Would it also be possible to replace the last sentence with

I´ve been detained at the office


I had been detained at the office?


Why or why not? If it´s possible, how exactly would it change the meaning?

Thanks for your help.

United States

No to both. It was a single event in the past, so only past simple works. If he is calling from the office, so the delay continues to the present, the present perfect is right. If it is being told in the past, then use the past perfect is used. I was late because I had been delayed. Bruce
