Hi all,

I've got some simple questions, which confused me, though. Well, here are they:

Which are correct, when it's happening at the time of speaking?

#1. Someone is ringing the bell.Or Someone rings the bell.
A: Did you hear someone ringing the bellor do you hear someone ringing the bell?
B: Sure, I heard or I hear.
A:Will you go to open the door or do you go to open the door?
B: I'll go or I go.

#2. We'll go now or we go now.

Someone is telling you to do something which is difficult for you,
then you'll say or you say; I'll try or I try.

Thank you very much for helping me.

P:S ( Can I also say : Thank you very much for your helping me )

Hello,

I put a happy face :D beside the sentence that are OK, and I put a sad face :( beside the sentences that are not OK.

1. Someone is ringing the bell. :D
2. Someone rings the bell. :(
3. Did you hear someone ringing the bell? :(
4. Do you hear someone ringing the bell? :D
5. Sure, I heard. :(
6. Sure, I hear it. :D
7. Will you go to open the door? :( Will you go and open the door?
8. Do you go to open the door? :( Would you go and open the door?

The difference between Will you go and Would you go has to do with the speaker's feelings: Will you is a kind of a command, and Would you is a polite request.

9. I'll go. :D Also, "I am going."
10. I go. :(
11. We'll go now. :( We'll be going now. / We are going now.
12. We go now. :(

13. I'll try. :D
14. I try. :(

All the best,
