"The more you study English, the more you'll learn". Is it possible to use different tenses or simple/continuous verbs with this construction?
Es. The more you eat, the more you're getting fat/you'll get fat.
Thanks for your reply.

Hello Monica68,

Yes, it is possible to use different tenses in this construction, provided they combine logically. Both of your examples are acceptable in the right context, for example.

I think there is a mistake in Task 3 2/6.

Hello nopainnogain,

Thank you for pointing this out. There is indeed an error - an unecessary comma. We have corrected the exercise.

Thanks again,

i scored well!

Mr Right?

I enjoyed the conversation

00:12 "I thought I haven't found Mr Right" (If I heard the right words). Is it possible to use the tense didn't find and write the sentence like this "I thought I didn't find Mr R" or "I thought I wound't find Mr R"? Thanks a lot

Hello apc,

All of those sentences are possible, but which is correct depends on the context and the meaning you wish to convey - the present perfect, past simple and 'would' forms have different meanings, of course, which you can check in our verbs grammar section.

Best wishes,
