Help needed   
 
Dear colleagues,
 
I struggle with two sentences- I m not sure if they are right:
 
-The story made literary history as the first nonfiction best-seller FROM an African-American woman. 
 
Is the preposition FROM OK? 
 
-They are sure TO HAVE WORKED hard on the project. 
I expected the sentence: They must have worked hard on the project.
 
I would really appreciate your help.
 
Thank you.

From is correct. By would also be fine. 
They are sure to have worked hard/they must have worked hard.... both fine, similar meaning. You are surmising/assuming  that they worked hard.  
There is a difference in nuance: they are sure to have worked hard, it s an assumption about them, but they second one, you are looking at the finished result; it s excellent, so they must have worked hard at/on it.  So the first one is an assumption, but the second one is a deduction.

I agree with Bruce. If you want to include the speaker, you could use the pronoun we . I suggest we use the computer. I suggest we begin by using the computer.

Help for my own children please!   
 
Hello,
 
I live abroad and we have four children. They ve started school now (not the one I work at) and, of course, they are bilingual. However, the rather rubbish school is making them go to English lessons with the rest of the class - despite the fact that they speak it fluently! Needless to say they are bored and frustrated. They are made to learn and write words like Mum and dog when they are reading books at home!
 
After some persuasion the school has agreed that we can give our children their own books to read and study in the English time...something for young English learners that has written comprehension and preferably puzzles, and so on. Something hopefully fun...maybe including some popular characters (superheroes etc). Something without listening or speaking exercises.
 
I ve never used such a book, and anyway, the kids I teach are teenagers. My kids are 8,6 and 3  (and 1 and a half, but he s not reading yet ).
 
Can anyone recommend a book for this purpose? It d be for the 8 and 6 year olds, so two books.
 
Many thanks in advance

RESERVE- CONSERVE- PRESERVE   
 
Can anyone help me distinguish between these 3 confusing VERBS: RESERVE- CONSERVE- PRESERVE?
Many thanks :D

Greek Professor

Reserve - to keep something for a particular purpose or time:

I reserve Mondays for tidying my desk and answering letters.

These seats are reserved for the elderly and women with babies.

I reserve judgment on this issue (= I won t give an opinion on it now) until we have more information.

​ If you reserve something such as a seat on an aircraft or a table at a restaurant, you arrange for it to be kept for your use:

I reserved a double room at the Lamb Hotel.

[ + two objects ] If you get there early, reserve me a seat/reserve a seat for me.


Conserve = to keep and protect something from damage, change, or waste:

 

To conserve electricity, we are cutting down on our heating.

The nationalists are very eager to conserve their customs and language.

I m not being lazy - I m just conserving my energy/strength for later.


Preserve -  to keep something as it is, especially in order to prevent it from decaying or being damaged or destroyed:

to preserve the environment

We want to preserve the character of the town while improving the facilities.

The agreement preserved our right to limit trade in endangered species.

Putting varnish on wood is a way of preserving it.

I need to get out of the house from time to time just to preserve (= prevent me from losing) my sanity.

well preserved - to treat food in a particular way so that it can be kept for a long time without going bad:

preserved fruit

oranges preserved in brandy

More examples

It s our duty to preserve the planet for future generations.

The Forestry Commission is responsible for preserving over 2 million acres of woodland.

The remains of the Roman fort are well preserved.

Every attempt is being made to ensure that these works of art are preserved for posterity.

He has a collection of prehistoric insects preserved in amber.

Some passive sentences   
 
When we have a long sentence to turn into passive voice sometimes I am not sure of the place of some of the words.. 
For example: I have to choose the place to see it, I think it is : the best place to see has to be chosen by me. Other example: his company will send him abroad on business, I think it is: he will be sent abroad on business by his company. The place of the  agent is the element I doubt about.

In response to your question, I would say the agent usually goes at the end of the sentence.
Your first sentence  needs to include "it" and forget " best"
The place to see it has to be chosen by me .

A lot of people seemed to relate to this picture, but there can be only one winner. This time, the winner is a late entry, from Book Geek:
 
"Are you talking to me?? ARE YOU TALKING TO ME???"
 
However, I loved all of the quotes and relate to them well.
 
Here s the original picture with the original caption: (Well, darn, it posted at the top again. I don t know why. I carefully tried to insert at the bottom.)
