    Earthquake might strike this week. Correct?

    Hi teachers,

    1) "Teaches" is pronounced "tiːtʃIz". Two syllables, right?

    2) Earthquake might strike this week. Correct?

    3) Supposing I am having my hair cut when my friend phones me and asks where I am. I reply "I am at the barber's." OR "I am in the barber's." which one is correct or suitable?

    4) If you pot this ball, I will concede. Correct?

    5) I have got two she goats. Correct?

    6) You need not worry about my studies. Is it correct as I read in a book? OR we should use "to" as "You need not to worry about my studies."

    Many thanks in advance.

    2. 'There might be an earthquake this week.'

    It's unlikely as eathquakes are unpredictable.

    I would hyphenate "she-goats".
