"Information" is almost always a non-countable noun. We don't say one information, two informations, etc. We use words such as some, much, any, etc. Non-countable nouns do not take the plural form.Originally Posted by Annie Mae
We do not use the present perfect tense to refer to a specific time period in the past. It does not fit with the word "yesterday". We would use the simple past with "yesterday". I went to the bank yesterday.2. "Have you got any money? Yes. I've been to the bank yesterday."
(I see that "I've been" is incorrect" but again I don't know how to explain the mistake.
On could use "slender" there, but that word has a positive connotation. It would fit the context better as "thin", "emaciated", "underweight", etc.3. "Is John ill? He's lost a lot of weight? Yes, he is rather slender these days, isn't he?"
I think "slender" is incorrect, but technically it means the same as "thin" although you probably wouldn't use it in this sentence. Or perhaps "isn't he" is wrong???
I'll leave that part for you. :wink:B.
Imagine that you are teaching a multilingual group of 12 learners at beginner level. What problems might they have in understanding these sentences; pronouncing them and outline ideas on how you would teach these expressions.
