    improve

    I've read that 'improve' cannot be used with 'in', but I remember clearly that my former primary school teacher wrote: "He has improved in English."
    If I change the sentence to "His English has improved", I find that it doesn't sound good to my ears.
    Is it true that we should not use 'on' with 'improve'?

    Re: improve

    I've read that 'improve' cannot be used with 'on'. However, I remember clearly that my primary school teacher wrote in my report book "He has improved in English."

    Is it true that 'improve' cannot be used with 'on'?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: improve

    Sorry, Moona, it should be 'in', not 'on'. So, to repeat, "I have read that 'improve' cannot be used with 'in'." I wonder whether it is so.

    Moona, you've said, 'in' cannot accompany 'improve'. I don't know whether other members share your view.
