    Your advice please

    I need to correct the following:

    Student and teacher mobility are growing.

    OR

    Student and teacher mobility is growing.

    I thought "is" because of "mobility" but I was told I was wrong.

    Please advise.

    Who told you that it is "are"?

    Re: Your advice please

    "Student and teacher are gaining in mobility" would be correct, but as it is written, I think you are correct. Perhaps there is more in the text that sheds light on this?

    Thanks for your comments. Not really much more. Just this sentence about student and teacher mobility.

    I will keep "Student and teacher mobility is growing".

    thanks again.

    Hello!
    I've got a question:
    Is it correct to say "He was also soldier" or He also was a soldier.

    I guess that we have to use an article here, but what about the word order of "also"?Please, help me!Thanks!
