    Post Can anyone read the text and tell me wether it's all right or wrong?

    Hey,
    I'm not sure wether I do my homework right.. May someone of you can look and correkt :)


    Somebody I knocking at the door. Can you see who it is?
    First you cook the onions in a little oil until they are golden brown.
    Carlos forever loses his temper with people!He must learn to calm down.
    Here cames the bus! You'd better hurry.
    'Where's Jack?' 'He is reading the paper in the kitchen.'
    Whenever I put up my hand, Harry kicks me under the desk.
    I'm sorry, but I don't understand you.
    Maria is leaving now,so could you get her coat?
    Come and eat your dinner. It's getting cold.
    I hear you did really well in your exams. Well done!


    In this exercise we have to decide wether we use present simple or present continuous. Did I do it right?

    I have an other exercise with past forms... We shall use past perfect only it it is necessery to make the meaning clear.
    I have the feeling, that my past text is very wrong...

    The condition of Britain in 1917
    The government also (A) needed to ensure that Britain was fed. Under the Defance of the Realm. Act it was able to take over land and turn it over to food production. In Feb. 1917 it (B) set up the Women's Land Army to recruit women as farm workers. By then, however, the food supply in Britain (C) became desperate. German U - Boats (D) sank one in every four British merchant ships and Britain had only six weeks supply of weat left. As food supplies (E) was becaming short sp prices (F) rose. Wages (G) hardly rose during the war because people were mostly prepared to sacrifice better pay to support the war effort, but prices were now almost double what they (H) was in 1914. Poorer people could not even afford basics supplies auch as bread. Shops (I) were colosing early each afternoon as they (J) were running out of goods to sell.

    The overall reaction of Germans was horror and outrage. They certainly (K) don't believe they (L) were strating the war. They (M) don't even thinking thy losing the war. In 1919 many Germans (O) don't really understand hoe bad German government (Q) simply agreed to a ceasefire, and that their government was not represented at the talks and that the Allies (R) forced to sign the treaty and at one point it was looking as though was might break out again.

    We don't do or correct homework here, Cinderella. That's your teacher's job.
    If you have any general questions about English, we'll be happy to answer them.

    Submit your homework to your teacher. When you get it back, look carefully at what has been corrected. If you don't understand any of the corrections, then come back to the forum and ask us to explain. Your teacher needs to know what you know, not what we know.

    ok, homework may is the wrong word.
    It's more a voluntary work to get better in english. It has nothing to do with school.
    I'm not good in english and for this reason I buy a grammer exercise book. The Problem is, there aren't the solutuions, you know?

    I have marked above the answer which has the most obvious incorrect word in it. Take another look at it.

    The book is Macmillan English Grammar In Context Advanced by Michael Vince.

    Thanks for the first read of it emsr2d2 :)
    The things about bis and small letters comes from typing it on the PC. At my Sheet, this mistakes don't exist ;)
    The grammar time (simple/continuous) is correct?
    What about the second text? By that I am very unsure...

    I don't know what "the things about bis" means.

    If you want us to look at your work, you have to make sure that you copy it exactly when you type. It is a waste of our time if we are looking at words on the screen but they are not the same words that you have written on your answer sheet.

    Please end all your sentences with the appropriate punctation mark as I have shown above. Leaving a space and then a "smiley" is not an appropriate way to end a written sentence.

    Please do not be offended but from what I have seen of your written English in this thread, I am surprised that you are working from a textbook on Advanced Grammar. Having said that, there was only one error in your answers to the first set of questions. It looks as if you are very careful when you do the exercises, but you are not as careful when you are simply writing sentences. You need to be more careful all the time.

    Next time I will copy it more carefully. Promise.
    It's my first time in a forum... So I'm sorry.
    You don't tell me anything about the second text.

    See above. There are multiple errors. I have marked the errors with your choice of tense in red, bold and underlined. However, you will notice that there are other red marks. Those are also errors. Most of them are where you have not copied the text correctly. As I said, it is very important to copy very carefully.
