    Sorry – I don't understand what you mean by this. Perhaps you mean 'Next month's training begins on 20th June'.

    Please ask unrelated questions in separate threads with a title relevant to each — such as

    No more seats in/on the bus.

    Are this shoes/Does this shoes?
    Best day in/of my life.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Re: Grammar Questions

    I understand what you are asking about, but you did not understand what I want you to do.

    There are three reasons why we want you to ask unrelated questions in separate threads:

    1. You'll get quicker answers. Somebody might want to answer one of the questions but have neither the time nor knowledge to answer all of them.

    2. Somebody may answer one question, ignoring the others. This means you will probably have to post again saying 'What about the other questions?'

    3. Somebody may answer two or more questions. You may have a supplementary question about one answer and somebody else may suggest an alternative answer to the other — whilst a third person may respond to your follow-up question on the first answer and a fourth person may then respond to a previously unanswered question. When different people start to discuss different questions — each possibly generating alternatives and follow-ups — the thread soon begins to get hopelessly muddled and out of control.

    Re: Grammar Questions

    No, you don't understand what he meant.
    Start three new threads.
    Ask ONE question in each of them.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
