Grammar Question. Help needed!   
 
Hello dear colleagues. 
I would like to ask you for some help in the following matter.
I often meet sentences of this kind: 1) There are a number of mistakes...... 2) There is a lot of people .......
For some reason I find them incorrect , I would say "There is a number of mistakes" (because "number" is singular) and "There are a lot of people" (because "people" - plural).
Please tell me if I am wrong, and how actually it is correct to write such sentences, because I frequently see both variants and it makes me confused. Thank you so much for your answers in advance!
 
Anastasia

Check out the tinytefl teacher website. She has some great activities, though not topics. 
One thing I do is put some words, or pictures into an envelope -animals, say. They each pick one out, draw it, mind map it and make a presentation.

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.
