English
You're correct about 2 and 3, but if you want 1 to mean "in the station" then that's what you should write -- or "in the subway station."
June 27, 2016

English
1 and 3 are closest in meaning, but really, all three mean about the same thing. And yes, in these sentences, "when" and "while" would mean the same thing.
June 27, 2016

English
I think you're right about 1-5. In 6-8, "soon" is needed if you mean that. If you omit that word, it could mean he's on his way whether he arrives "soon" or not.

All mean the same thing, yes. I'd use 1 and 3; 2 is rather too formal.

English
I'd use 2, not 1. I'd use 3, 5, and maybe 6 (although it's quite wordy!).
June 27, 2016

English
All mean approximately the same thing, but 1 can be used as a dismissive command! The verbs "can" and "able" mean the same thing. Technically, "may" is the verb needed for permission.

English
All are fine. She put a T-shirt on her son.
June 27, 2016

English
No, sentence 1 is unusual. Sentence 2 is correct. Sentence 3 is incorrect. Sentence 4 is fine. You need to use "well" instead of "good" in sentence 3 since you need the adverb form there.
June 27, 2016

English
1 and 2 -- You need "you're" (not "your") since you are really saying "you are..." Both 1 and 2 mean the same thing once you fix that error. 3 means 5; they are about the present. 4 is asking about the future.

Sentence 2 is correct. The others have incorrect sequence of verb tenses. Sentence 5 is correct. The present perfect tense (has lived) means that he began living with her in the past and continues "until now."

1 -- remove the first "out" 2 -- remove "out" 3 -- Awkward sentence, but it's not incorrect. The prepositions "out of" and "from" are better for this meaning. All of them seem to mean to take out one pencil from many in the pencil case.
