    Question PROBLEMS WITH MY HOMEWORK

    USE APPROPRIETE FORMS OF THE VERBS IN BRACKETS

    1. I (walk) was walking past that shop, it must have been 11 o'clock, when suddenly I (hear) heard to shots from inside.

    2. John still speaks with genuine accent. But it's true that before he (move) moved to Cambridge he (live) lived in Soho.

    3. I heard that English syntax (not be) wasn't difficult, and thus I thought that I (learn) learned the whole stuff in a week.


    Is that correct?

    Re: PROBLEMS WITH MY HOMEWORK

    Welcome to UsingEnglish, amyg05.

    We do not do homework or assignments for people. Please read the Posting Guidelines:

    Homework:

    Please don't ask us to do or correct your homework; this is a place to discuss language.
    Your teacher wants to know what you can do, not what we can do.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: PROBLEMS WITH MY HOMEWORK

    I wasn't asking you to do it, I was was asking for correction. I'm not learning for my teacher, I'm learning for myself and I just wanted to know if I did it properly. Your reply is quite unfair.

    No, Chicken Sandwich's reply is quite fair. He's letting you know that we don't do homework here, and neither do we correct it.
    Perhaps you think the forum rule is unfair. You could take that up with the administrator.

    Hello, amyg05.
    I know how you feel.
    It might be that you're making good preparations for your next class.
    However, there's a rule here in this forum (as CS showed above). You'll need to accept it.
    Please remember that we don't intend to be mean to you.
    Good luck!

    amyg, when your teacher has seen your work and corrected it, you can come back to us if there is still anything you don't understand about it.

    Please see the amendments I have made above. Either your book is badly written and contains errors, or you have mistyped them into the forum. If it's the former, you should get a better book. If it's the latter, then be more careful when you copy.

    Are you going to submit this exercise to your English teacher? If so, when? If you are confused as to why we are all asking about this, it's because your title is "Problems with my homework". Homework is work set by your teacher which you do at home and then submit to your teacher for marking. It does not mean work that you simply choose to do at home of your own volition.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
