I will be applying for the CELTA course in Dundee and I need your help to make sure my answers are correct to the following questions:
Underline the Mistake, Write the correct and explain why ?
1. Can I help you ? Yes, I've left my luggages on the train ?
Because Luggage is in itself a plural while seems as a singular, so it should be LUGGAGE
Correct, luggage is fine.
2. Have you got a ticket? Yes, I've bought one last week
There is no need to use HAVE as the action is in the past.
Yes - I bought my ticket last week.
3. Has Sarah beeb ill? she's lost a lot of weight
yes, she's really slender now, isn't she ?
The word slender does not really describe Sarah now and we might use the word thin
If you're actually trying to suggest that she's lost too much weight, hence the assumption that she's been ill, then "thin" or "skinny".
4. Why did not you phone me last night? Because I did my homework
the correct version is , I was doing to show the status of being busy finishing his homework.
Correct - I was doing. But the question should be "Why didn't you...." or "Why did you not..." but not "Why did not you...?"
