  1. Only the second and fourth sentences are correct. The word "eating" (a gerund) is the subject and is singular, so all those sentences with "are" for the verb are incorrect.

  2. Correction of sorts: "eating" is the subject of its own clause, not the main subject of the entire sentence.

  5. 1. She did her part, and the native speaker did her part. They were cooperative and did their parts properly.

    2. Teachers should make students say, act out and work together in class.

    3. The quality of a teacher's voice is important in teaching. If she shouts loudly to stop students' making noises, she may hurt her voice. In co-teaching both teaches' voices are essential.


    4. As the Korean teacher explained what the native speaker said, students have no difficulty in working with the native speaker.
