    d) Exam in progress. Silence please.

    2. Home letter / letters home / letter home More context would be helpful

    3. Adults english / adult english More context would be helpful

    4. Heartiest congratulations or heartiest congratulation?
    When do we use congratulations almost always & congratulation almost never

    Incidentally, your 'which ones correct' was missing a verb: 'which ones are correct.?' (Or perhaps something else was missing...)

    Re: which ones are correct?

    thk you for the reply.

    English for adults-- do we say adult english or adults english?
    Letter from home--letters home or home letter?

    For me, i think should be adult english & home letter(s). we use adult as adj that explain what type of english class, home as adj to mention what kind of letter.

    but i read from book it says letters home, which made me confuse. can someone explain?
