Hello.Could you help me please?

She’s supposed ..... arriving tomorrow.
Why this answer [to be]? I choose [be].
I dont know difference between these answer.

Hello andro meiga,

This is an example of quite a common verb pattern in English. Certain verbs in English are followed by the form [to verb], and 'supposed' is one of these. There is no rule as to which verbs act like this; you simply need to learn them!

For more information on these verbs, see this page.

Hello ^^
I have some problems with gammar. As I know, the word "wait" is usually followed by preposition "for" but it is followed in task 4 by "to". Can you explain that?
And, what is the sentence " Where are you both living?" mean?
Thank you for your help.

Hello Helly Nguyen,

We say 'wait for' when we are talking about the thing that we want. It is followed by a noun:

I'm waiting for my girlfriend.

She waited for the bus for an hour.

We use 'to' when we want to say that an action was delayed. It is followed by a verb (an infinitive):

I waited to tell him until he was in a good mood. [I didn't tell him until...]

We're waiting to meet Julia. [The reason we are waiting is that we want to...]

Hello! Can you help me with this test ,please?Which variant is correct?

a)if b)either c)whether c)where

Hello mehinaydinli,

We have a rule on LearnEnglish that we do not help users with tests or homework, I'm afraid. If we tried to do this then we would quickly have hundreds of requests, and we simply do not have the resources for this!

Any test should include a key, or else the person who set the test should be able to tell you that answer.


Good luck and best wishes,
