    A pile can be anything, but a deck is usually a complete set of playing cards (all four suits, thirteen in a suit).

    Re: proofreading - learning at home

    My son began to read and translate a little book (Factfiles „New York” by John Escott, edited by Oxford Bookworms). Concerning the second part („In the beginning”) he made answers, but I’m not so good in English to be able to correct them properly.

    Would you like to check the following questions? Thanks in advance.


    1. What is the name of 1920s?
    2. Why was America an exciting place?
    3. Where was selling the alcohol?
    4. What happened in 11 September, 2001?
    5. What did crash into the two towers?
    6. When did the Empire State Building open?
    7. Witch famous restaurant was in the World Trade Center?
    8. Who did die in 11 September, 2001?
    9. Which place name is Ground Zero?
    10. How many floors were in the World Trade Center?

    Re: proofreading - learning at home

    Hi Hunliner,

    It seems like you are covered for proofreading (many people have responded to you already). I thought you might be interested in an article that I just posted. It talks about mistakes and why you need to make them in order to learn. It also tells you what you can do to help you know when you are making mistakes. (You are taking a good step already...checking on this forum is a great way to check your doubts.)

    You can read the article at Common English Mistakes; Why do you make them?

    I hope that you find the article helpful.
    All the best,
    Diana
