Writeacher, Do you specialize in any particular subject? I've seen you answer to math, english, physics, etc. I'm just curious. I don't believe I've answered to any physics questions -- poor student to depend on me for that!! Mostly I respond to English questions (grammar, ...

Yes, Writeacher is an English expert. She has taught English in high school and college.

Are you aiming for British English (vocabulary choices) or American English?
Monday, February 14, 2011 at 10:16am by Writeacher

In #1, "English" is serving as a noun. Actually it's an adjective, but it means English people. #2 is the closest to #1, but #3 is OK. The word "All" changes the meaning slightly.

Both questions are wordy. Here's how to rephrase and be more concise. Do you know a website where I can improve my English skills? Is it possible to talk to some native English speakers on Skype?

You're welcome, Priya. Just a note: Writeacher and I are both native English speakers, have master's degrees, and taught secondary English in American schools for many years.

I'll add my 2 cents to the excellent comments from Writeacher. This is hardly a news story. Whatever it is, I agree with Writeacher that it's terribly confusing.

I agree with Sra. Prepositions and word order in English can sometimes be tricky. You're learning well. Keep up the good work! =)

I have volunteered at an orphanage. There was a lot of work to do. I talked with children there and helped them with math. I taught them English, too. I was happy because I could help others.

It has to do with idiomatic use of English, which especially shows up in the choice of prepositions. He moved aside and said with a flourish of his hand, “But I do."

Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at 9:12am by Writeacher

And make sure you are practicing as much as possible with other people who already speak English. It's not helpful to spend only an hour or two in class and then spend 14 or more hours a day around those who don't speak English.
Thursday, August 11, 2011 at 4:10pm by Writeacher

Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 2:40pm by Writeacher

The only one I can suggest is the Oxford English Dictionary -- You may have to create an account, and I don't know if it's free or not, but it's worth checking out.
Thursday, December 29, 2011 at 5:08pm by Writeacher

Which do YOU THINK is the correct one? Remember that apostrophes are used correctly in English to show possession (singular or plural) and to indicate missing letters in a contraction.
Monday, January 23, 2012 at 4:46pm by Writeacher

English, grammar
In English, double negatives have a canceling-out effect, making the meaning positive. That's usually the opposite of what the speaker or writer intends.
Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at 11:24pm by Writeacher

Yes, in those languages, a double negative is for emphasis. In standard English, a double negative is considered an error ... bad grammar ... or an example of a non-standard English dialect.
Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 4:18pm by Writeacher

OK, you're referring to a that-clause in which the actual word that is absent (or assumed or understood, even though it doesn't appear in print). That happens a lot in spoken and sometimes in written English, yes.
Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 2:03pm by Writeacher

The first part of the sentence is clumsy and wordy (too many words used). Here's a simpler version: We should take note that English as a second language will not solve everything.
Saturday, January 31, 2009 at 12:47am by Writeacher

Sure. I'll be gone for the rest of the morning (I'm in Central time), but please post your questions. If I'm not here to answer, there are at least three other teachers who are well versed in English grammar who can help.
Tuesday, July 27, 2010 at 11:08am by Writeacher

Tony, Writeacher and I both tried to find it online. That poem is NOT published online! As Writeacher said, it's still under copyright and therefore cannot be published on a free website!
Monday, November 3, 2008 at 8:20pm by Ms. Sue

If you're in the US, use "toward." The use of "towards" is more commonly used in British English than in American English.
Saturday, November 28, 2009 at 6:07pm by Writeacher

I hope "britt" means "going to go to an English Club." Not sure, but I certainly hope so!
