Hello. Could you clarify, please, the correct contraction for this sentence: - Not only my friends but also my classmate speaks English. - So or Neither do I? is this sentence considered negative?

Hi Selena,

It's an affirmative sentence, showing that your friends and your classmate do speak English, so the reply would be So do I.

Best wishes,

hi
why (such a horrible thing ) - not ( so a horrible thing )
is not horrible an adjective ?

Hi Adham farea,

The forms here are as follows:

 

so + adjective without a noun

such + adjective with a noun

Thus we would say:

It is so horrible! (no noun)

It is such a horrible think! (with a noun)

 

Best wishes,

Peter

hi sir,
in a situation can i use me, too and me, neither

Hello arjundixit,

That depends on the situation and what has been said. 'me too' and 'me neither' work similarly to 'so am I' and 'neither do I', which are explained on this Cambridge Dictionary page.

Hi venerated teachers!
I have strongly determined to learn British accent and English. For this I've progressed a lot during my one year effort. I'll continue my this desirable work in future. I've gained so much from your this platform, especially.

Hi
What about "Me either"?
does it have the same meaning as "me neither". if not, what?

Hello Anh Duong Dang,

The standard form is to use 'me neither' after a negative verb to agree; it's an alternative to 'Neither do I'. For example, 'My sister doesn't like chocolate' -- 'Neither do I'/'Me neither'.

In some varieties of English, however, you might hear people say 'me either'. But the standard form is 'me neither' in the case I explained above.

All the best,
