    3 easy questions

    1. My friend doesn't eat the 4 sides of a tasty bread(square). What d'yu call the 4 sides?I know some vocabulary for bread like, Loaf of bread, then slice then we have crumbs but what about the sides? for pizza, it's crust, how about bread?So my friend could say..." i don't eat _____(four sides of the bread)"

    2. What is the proper preposition for enroll?"I enrolled in/on cooking" I'm just confused.

    3. I read 2 lines that we can use for conversational English,"See any movie lately?" and "Go anywhere lately?"...but what is the original sentence?Is it in the present perfect tense?

    pls help

    1. The word is "Crust". :)
    2. You enroll IN something. However, your example of "cooking" doesn't make sence, as the word enroll means "to be initiated into", into a club for example ("I enrolled in the fishing club".
    3. That is a tricky one, it could be one of two tenses:
    - Did you see any movies recently? - lately doesn't work in this sentence
    - Have you gone anywhere lately? - Retains the "lately", but changes the tense slightly.

    Hi,
    In American English the Past Simple is often used with recently, in BE Ė the Present Perfect.
    I donít understand why lately doesnít work there, though.
