We were told to say these phrases:
the meeting held yesterday
the meeting being held now
the meeting to be held tomorrow
But in Oxford 7 edtion (2005):
the Beijing Olympics, held in 2008
I was surprised to read this phrase, because we were supposed to say '
the Beijing Olympics, to be held in 2008'.
Then according to Oxford 7, we can say 'the meeting held now/tomorrow'?
Could I ask native English teachers to help me please? Thank you in advance.
