    Re: help with futur time

    There are also too many question in this thread. Please post one question at a time.

    Is this a homework assignment?

    EDIT: I have taken out what I said about the number of possible correct answers. I apologise. I skimmed through this very long post and the ones I spotted only had one correct answer. However, it is true that some of them have multiple possibilities.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: help with futur time

    In the book stand that more then one can be right, I have to choose all possible forms.
    That's not for homework assignment. That's for practicing my english skills for university next year.

    May I respectfully suggest that, at the moment, instead of doing complicated exercises like the one you have posted, you concentrate on your written English. I have made corrections to your post in red. Look at them carefully. You need to concentrate on your use of capital letters and punctuation, and also your use of tenses.

    You said that you are going to university next year. You need to concentrate on the basics of English before worrying about the more complicated aspects, if you are going to make yourself understood in English at university.

    Re: help with futur time

    I can understand english very well. I watch TV in english, read books without a problem. If it gets to writting I'm not good and I know that. But I can't get better in wirtting if I can't the grammar. That's why I make grammar exercises.

    There is a big difference between understanding a language and reading books in that language, and writing it yourself. Clearly, you understand that. Perhaps what I should have said is that you need to be more careful. Look at the errors in this post, which I have corrected in red. They are silly unnecessary errors. I am sure you know that you must capitalise the word "English". Check your spelling carefully and make sure that you have written all necessary words. Learn the difference between "do" and "make". I am aware that "machen" is German for both words but they have very different uses in English.

    Re: help with futur time

    I know all that. It's just unfamiliar for me to write on the PC. I make mistaks in german as well when I wirte on the PC. If I concentrat I do not make this mistakes. At least not if I wirte it on a piece of paper.
    And without offend you. I think that I know best what I have to learn at the moment. At this are the grammar things I post here in this forum.

    NOT A TEACHER

    If you're going to study on your own, it's a good idea to buy a book with a key. If I were you, I'd start with Essential Grammar in Use by Raymond Murphy, which is a highly regarded self-study reference and practice book for beginning students of English.
