    some questions...

    Hi

    1-Is this sentence right?

    "Thanks a lot for your call yesterday regarding Beatrix cancelation class." or should it be "Beatrix's cancelation class"?

    2-What does it mean "a person is dull"?

    3- What do you say when someone keep annoying you? "Stop" or "Stopped"

    4- Which one is correct (if any)?
    "I was at Liverpool Street when you called"
    "I was in Liverpool Street when you called"

    Thanks you very much indeed,

    It means the person is boring, not interesting, not fun.

    • 3- What do you say when someone keeps annoying you?


    Say, "Stop it!" or "Stop it, please" or "Please, stop it"

    • 4- Which one is correct (if any)?
      "I was at Liverpool Street when you called"
      "I was in Liverpool Street when you called"


    "I was (shopping/walking/sitting/ driving) on Liverpool Street when you called."

    :D

    Thanks a lot,

    2- What does it mean "a person is dull"?

    It means the person is boring, not interesting, not fun.
    It also means depressed or sad?

    "I was (shopping/walking/sitting/ driving) on Liverpool Street when you called."
    But you could say "I was on Liverpool...", couldn't you?
    Thanks again

    Nope. It doesn't. To express 'sad/depressed', use "down".

    He is down. (He's sad and/or depressed)

    "I was (shopping/walking/sitting/ driving) on Liverpool Street when you called."

    But you could say "I was on Liverpool...", couldn't you?
    Yes. The brackets (...) mean optional. So words inside the brackets can be left unsaid.

    :D
