    Question How does it sound?

    -Is there any mistakes relate to my use of the underlined tenses?

    Sami: Have you read books about South America?
    Fuad: Yes. Well, I'm reading one book. Do you read travel books?
    Sami: No. But I like adventure books, like Scott's Diaries. Have you read Scott’s Diaries?
    Fuad: No. But I want to read them. Has he write about the last expedition, in 1910?
    Sami: Oh yes! It's very interesting.

    All the verbs are excellent except for one:

    Has he write about the last expedition, in 1910?
    This should be "Has he written about the last expedition, in 1910?"

    > The title line
    Is there any mistakes relate to my use of the underlined tenses?
    should say: "ARE there any mistakes RELATED to my use of the underlined VERBS?"

    Thanks Ann1977, I really need to make a lot of concentrated effort to improve my English language.

    LOL! You don't need to make THAT much effort! Your English is pretty good already.

    If I, on the other hand, tried to speak Arabic -- well, everyone would just bust out laughing!
