A is OK, but is not a great choice. When we say, "You can say that again", we mean "I wholeheartedly agree with you". Sarah ´s statement just doesn ´t seem to be strong enough to warrant such a response. This is totally subjective, though, and Kathy ´s opinion of the importance of Sarah ´s statement might be different from mine.
Anyway, I wouldn´t use it in this situation, but it is definitely correct, and some people might strongly disagree with me.
If Kathy is a 3rd-grade teacher whose students can ´t stay awake in class, that is just what she would say.
I have two classes working units on their books that talk about different nationalities and E-pals (pen friends). I would like to know if there are people interested on exchanging e-mails to create pen friends. Both classes of 7 students, one of ages 14-16 and the other of adults (30s and 40s). Please contact me pvt msg through email if you ´d like to participate (email@example.com).
Satellite data tells us that the water vapour in the atmosphere has gone up by four percent in 25 years. This warm, wet air turns into the rain, storms, hurricanes and typhoons that we are increasingly experiencing.
False. Although the passage states that satellites have determined an increase in the amount of vapo(u)r which serves as a trigger for storms, it does not give us a clue about the location or place where the calamities might occur. No place, area, or any reference to the location of such disasters is provided in your passage, so, logically, I would choose ´false´ because a third option - ´doesn ´t say´ - is not suggested.
To help my students with their English, I have lots of Teaching Tips which I give them from time to time. A student suggested that I post them on ESLP, to help other students. You are free to use them, or not, as you wish.
I frequently hear students use phrases similar to: "I have less and less books, because my friends borrow them from me!"
In casual, informal conversation, the phrase, ´less and less books´, is understood by everyone. It has an ancient history of use, and an excellent ´pedigree´.
However, the phrase, ´fewer and fewer books´, began to be used, many years later, simply because it was a particular writer´s personal preference. This modern form is now regarded as the CORRECT construction.
In my world, you are free to make your own choice.
But, I warn you ... the majority of English grammar books insist that the modern rule is CORRECT. Education Authorities expect all students to speak CORRECT English.
In a strict grammar examination, it would be wise to follow these modern rules.
Here are the rules:
1) ´Fewer´ is an Adjective which modifies a Noun that is PLURAL and COUNTABLE.
The description must be capable of being visualised in numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc.
2) ´Less´ is an Adjective which modifies a Noun that is SINGULAR and UNCOUNTABLE.
The description must be capable of being visualised in amounts: litres, tonnes, metres, volts, seconds, etc.
Using this rule, we have:
1) "There are fewer books" ... you CAN say: "1 book, 2 books, 3 books". ´books´ is PLURAL and COUNTABLE ... ´books´ CAN be counted: 1, 2, 3.
2) "There is less information" ... you CANNOT say: "1 information, 2 informations, 3 informations." ´information´ is SINGULAR and UNCOUNTABLE ... ´information´ CANNOT be counted: 1, 2, 3.
3) "There are more books". "There is more information".
Here are my Silly Sentences, to help you remember the rules.
1) There are Fewer than Five COUNTY COUNCILLORS.
2) There is Less than a Litre of UNCOUNTABLE UNCONSCIOUSNESS.
3) There are more than Five COUNTY COUNCILLORS. There is more than a Litre of UNCOUNTABLE UNCONSCIOUSNESS.
My colleague and I are preparing a common TEST (LISTENING COMPREHENSION)
in our 4 classes to end the year.(A2+)
We have already listened to many "introduction" mp3 documents but we found it difficult to find the" ideal" one, so we have prepared a text ready to be recorded. We are now looking for some volonteer to record the text and send it as soon as possible.(with an English accent- mother tongue if possible) as our text will take place on Friday 2nd June.
I ´ll be very happy if someone could spend 15 minutes of his/her time to record with his / her own voice and send it and
I ´ll upload the listening grid for everbody and send it to you too.
Many thanks in advance. HAVE A NICE DAY EVERYBODY !!
