    Conditional

    Hello Minoo, Sorry, I tried again, making sure there was no space, neither before nor after, and the result is the same. It seems to me that there is a little bug ... I wish you the best.

    America - Horse With No Name.

    Heard it for the first time when I was nineteen. At the time I did my military service as private (soldier) in Dutch-'zijn legerdienst doen als milicien ' or 'servire sous le drapeau' as it is called in French. Suppose the song has any message or any outspoken meaning other than perhaps being far away, somewhere in heaven. Right? On Youtube Saterday 9 Mars 2019; (1.067.473 views) America - Horse With No Name On the first part of the journey, I was looking at all the life. There were plants and birds. and rocks and things, There was sand and hills and rings. The first thing I met, was a fly with a buzz, And the sky, with no clouds. The heat was hot, and the ground was dry, But the air was full of sound. I've been through the desert on a horse with no name, It felt good to be out of the rain. In the desert you can remember your name, 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain. After two days, in the desert sun, My skin began to turn red. After three days, in the desert fun, I was looking at a river bed. And the story it told, of a river that flowed, Made me sad to think it was dead. You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name, It felt good to be out of the rain. In the desert you can remember your name, 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain. After nine days, I let the horse run free, 'Cause the desert had turned to sea. There were plants and birds, and rocks and things, There was sand and hills and rings. The ocean is a desert, with it's life underground, And a perfect disguise above. Under the cities lies, a heart made of ground, But the humans will give no love. You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name, It felt good to be out of the rain. In the desert you can remember your name, 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain.

    Hello, I have just entered the exact answers you have entered above, and they were all correct! I have no idea why they come up as incorrect for you. Please try one more time, making sure that you are not typing any extra spaces, and let me know if this happens again. In any case, all your answers are correct.

    Modal verb 'could'

    Modal verb 'could'

    Yes, Bernard, you are! When it comes to modal verbs, it is common: a) for the same modal verb to have different functions, and as a consequence: b) for different modal verbs to have the same function.

    Question words - how long

    Hello Bernard and Phil, I agree with Phil's answer that 'since when' is better if you want to keep the Present Perfect Continuous tense in your question. However, in daily usage, Phil's second question is more common if you want to formulate a complete question that will definitely draw a date. 'Since when?' is a common short question: A: He has been working here for quite some time now. B: Really? Since when?

    How I can improve my English spoken skills ?

    Thank you for this question, Muhammad. I know many of you need to improve your speaking skills. To improve your speaking skills, you need to work on: - your pronunciation - your active use of structures - your active range of daily vocabulary and expressions In my experience, the most effective way of improving all three elements I mention above, in one single activity, is listening to and repeating common phrases and sentences out loud on a daily basis, sometimes called the 'imitation' technique. That is precisely why we have voice-recorded every sentence that is included in the Anglo-Pedia Exercises, i.e. roughly 3000 sentences for you to first complete (gap-fill exercises) or type out (Q/A exercises), and then hear and repeat. Remember the key is to repeat these sentences out loud and correctly several times, as if you were rehearsing your lines for a play. Some of us make the mistake of only listening and repeating a semi-correct version of the sentence under our breath once. That does not improve our speaking skills. Obviously, free practice i.e. speaking English with someone regularly is a great bonus, but only if the person you speak to is a teacher or a native speaker who corrects you and gives you feed-back on what you need to improve. If you do not have access to such a person, the next best practice is to listen to a native speaker with a clear accent on subjects that interest you on YouTube, or to watch movies with easy everyday dialogues. I hope many of you follow these recommendations, and see how rapidly your speaking skills improve.
