plsease tell me " do you mind if he smoke/ smokes here?"
we often use " I m pleased that she studies hard", so can we use " I m pleased because she studies hard" ?

Do you mind if I smoke/if he smokes here? Fine.
I m pleased (that) she studies hard. I m pleased(,) because she studies hard. Both are fine.

Dear colleagues,
There is a sentence which was a matter of active controversy yesterday in our teachers room: 
1. I don t know which genre of music is his favorite. 
2. I don t know which genre of music his favorite is
Both of them seem to be correct. Which one is correct in your opinion? Could you explain?

According to Swam, the correct order in this kind of sentences is Subject + Verb with all verbs:
I don t know which music she likes
*I don t know which music likes she
The verb TO BE is an exception. It allows both positions:
I don t know where she is
I don t know where is she

How to practise prepositions in a different way -Memory tricks   
I ve created an activity to practise "at" by creating a puzzle and a pop-up card. You can use this drawing to present the rules:
To help Ss practise the phrases, you can print the following pictures and cut out the shapes.
  •  S1 says the phrases to S2

I printed these and cut them out, then put each sentence in a separate envelope. The students raced against each other (in small teams, ideally) to create a grammatically correct positive sentence, negative sentence, or yes/no question.
