Verbs with direct and indirect objects   
I m looking for a clear list of which verbs can take direct and indirect objects.
For example, "explain" can have a direct but not an indirect object. He explained the problem to me but not He explained me the problem. Yet "give" can have an indirect object pronoun or a "to" phrase: He gave me the flowers or He gave the flowers to me.
Does anyone know where I could find this kind of reference list? It s for someone preparing for SATs so i d like it to be pretty comprehensive. 
Thank you in advance.

Help with an expression    
Hi...I need your help! I have a doubt with an expression. A few days ago a friend posted on Facebook that she was getting the tickets for a concert and somebody replied saying I m down like a puffy jacket! What s the meaning of that expression? I can t get it!!! 😕 Thanks for your help in advance. Regards!

Heh heh heh!
When you say put me down for two tickets, that means "sign me up, I m going to buy."
There are also jackets that have goose down (the soft feathers).  The down makes the jacket puffy.
So when she says I m down like a puffy jacket.  She means she is definitely going to buy tickets.
Get it?

simple question about memory sticks!!!   
Hi , there , just a very simple question to native speakers. For a memory stick what word do you usually use? Memery stick? USB Flashdrive   or even USB key? Thanks for answering this very simple question and enjoy your day, hugs Sylvie

In Uk English, I have only heard USB stick or memory stick. I ve heard flash drive, but I associate that with american English.
I ve never heard thumb drive.
USB key is, in my opinion, just wrong. (That s not a criticism of aftab! I just mean that in my own experience of English, that phrase is incorrect. I live in France where "une clé USB" is the standard phrase, but no English speaker I know has ever called it a USB key.)

trucks and logistic   
Hi everyone !
i m looking for worksheets on trucks and logistics as i m about to teach in a vocational school next month!
Thanks for any help!

With annoying regularity, I ll try to upload a ppt and it will tell me I have exceeded the 3 MB limit. However, when I check the size on my saved file, it tells me I am under 3 MB.  I generally have to shave it down to around 2.75-ish to get the system to accept it.  
Does this happen to anybody else? If not, what am I doing wrong? It doesn t sound like much, but sometimes that 0.25 can be the difference in really nice ppt vs. one that s just meh,,,,,,
Thanks! (My OCD-ness is showing. Can you tell?)

Subjects in British schools   

Hi there!

I m working with my year 7 pupils on timetables in British schools, and I m not sure how to explain some subjects to my pupils.
Could some British people explain to me what "Art and Design" is? How is it different from justArt?
I m not sure either what Design Technology is?
And what about "Religious Education" or "Religious Studies"? Does it exist in all school and whatis taughtto the pupils in this class?
Finally whatdoes "Home Economics" consist in?
Thank you if you can help me!

Home economics (HE) used to also include sewing, although nowadays sewing tends to be part of Design and Technology, whereas cookery and nutrition come under Food Tech.
