    another 3 questions

    1. Is it ok to say.." I'm here in the room. or I'm here in the Philippines."
    Or should I remove here because there's "in" already. Is this redundant?

    2. Can you tell me when to use anyway and anyways? Which is correct?

    3. Which is right?, " Only reading can get me this serious or make me this serious"


    Thanks!

    1. Yes, it is redundant. It is common informally, however.

    2. That's easy "anyways" is non-standard; you can drop it from your vocabulary.

    3. IMO, either.
