Pronouns are words we use in the place of a full noun.

There are many different kinds of pronouns.

Hello awahab,

'the few' is the plural subject of the verb 'want'. 'wants' is a singular form, so it is not correct. The correct form is the plural form 'want'.

Hi. I would be happy if you explain to me the difference between "help me" and "help me out". I've been trying to figure it out by reading definitions in dictionaries, but there aren't many explanations and examples.

Hi Ellenna,

'Help' by itself has a very general meaning. 'Help out' means either to do part of someone's work or task or to participate in a common effort, or else to give someone money.

Hello Sir,
Would you let me know the difference between Passage & Paragraph?
I had appear in examination few years ago there was a question like that " Make a summery of below passage".

Hello Imran 26,

When a writer writes a narrative text, they divide it into sections such as sentences, paragraphs and chapters. The writer is the one who makes the divisions between the different sections.

A passage is a piece of a text that someone else has taken out of the text. For example, perhaps your English teacher takes just a sentence or two from a story you read in class. The writer didn't intend for those couple of sentences to stand alone -- it's your teacher who chose them, not the writer.

Hello Sir,
In Pakistan when we talk about Grammar in English, The Grammar books writer make a content in their English Grammar Books for new learns are Parts of Speech, then Tenses, then narrations and after that active/passive voice.
They says there are 8 Parts of Speech as Noun,Pronoun,Adjective, Adverb,Preposition,conjections and Interjection.
sir, is the above sequence for new learner in English Grammar are correct?
do you think native speakers also follow this sequence for English Grammar?

Hello Imran 26,

This is an interesting question. There are lots of different ideas on how to teach grammar and it's also important to consider what the learners' background is. For example, do the students already speak English and are just learning the grammar?

I'm afraid these are all issues that we don't really get involved in here on LearnEnglish. On our sister site, TeachingEnglish, though, I'm sure you could find some interesting discussion of this topic -- for example, searching for 'teaching grammar', I found this page on how to teach grammar.

I hope this helps you.

All the best,
