Hi there,

I'm confused with one of the verbs in this expression: "I saw him 'throw' the ball into the pond." I think it should be replaced with 'threw'. Right? If no, I will appreciate an insightful explanation on this, thanks.

Hello Counsel,

Verbs of perception (such as 'see', 'hear', etc.) are often followed by an object ('him') and an infinitive ('throw'), so actually that sentence is correct. Saying 'threw' instead would not be correct.

I hope this helps.

All the best,

Hello Mandeep,

We have a page that explains this. Try using our Search box – if searching for 'each other' doesn't work for you, try 'reciprocal pronouns'. And please try to find things on your own in the future! We're happy to help, but you can often find things much more quickly by searching for them yourself.

All the best,

Hello, LearnEnglishTeam!
Why in this podcast there isn't ability to download only transcript?

Hello krig,

Our mistake – sorry! I've just fixed this – now you can find the Transcript under Instructions & downloads, as always.

Thanks very much for pointing this out to us!

Hello everybody Good Morning!
can any body tell me how to use must,must have and must have been?

Hi,

I got a problem in speaking English. I tell you now and hope that you can give me some advises
I often practice my speaking skill by talking to myself in english, and record it. Then i can listen to my voice and pick up my mistakes

But I usually lost my fluency while speaking, because I keep focusing much on right words, grammar, ideas to tell, flow of the story,...
Can you please help me with some steps that work, or some ways to improve the situation...

Thanks much!
