    Three sentences

    Can someone help me. Thankyou

    Consider the following student errors. After each error, state:
    i) What the mistake is.
    ii) Why you think it has been made.
    iii) How you would explain and correct the mistake with a student.

    l. She’s liked him since six months.
    2. When you start work?
    3. I’ve been knowing her for three months.

    Hello, I am not a teacher, but I try to give you an answer.

    1. the word since is used to show a point of start.Use the word 'for' to show how long the action during.
    The student sometimes mix the use of the word since and for.

    2.This sentence is a question, do not forget the auxiliary 'do'. It is a rule in English to use the auxiliary. You have exceptions with questions beginning with word like 'wh....'.
    3.Present perfect tense is for one action, is to show a during of the action in the past, I prefer the present perfect tense in this case.

    Hope it's help you, try to resolve yourself your homework.

    Have a nice day.
