you and they

 

We use you to talk about people in general including the speaker and the hearer:

You can buy this book anywhere > This book is on sale everywhere.
You can’t park here > Parking is not allowed here.
They don’t let you smoke in here > No smoking here

We use they or them to talk about people in general:

They serve good food here.
Ask them for a cheaper ticket.

… especially about the government and the authorities:

They don’t let you smoke in here.
They are going to increase taxes.
They are building a new motorway.
They say it’s going to rain tomorrow.

i hope learn english..but the problem...english forget easly....how can i do to do not forget it?

Hello semsema1983eg,
The bad news is that I can't do anything to give you a better memory!  The good news is that there are some things you can do to help you to remember what you learn.  
The first thing is to use new language.  If we learn something but do not use it then there is a good chance that we will forget it, so try to use what you learn and this will help a great deal with memorisation.  
Second, think about how you store language that you learn.  Do you keep vocabulary and grammar notebooks, organised in a way that will make the language more memorable?  For example, a good way to organise your vocabulary is by topic, so you can keep related words together.  Remember to revise what you put into your notebook regularly, testing yourself and noting what you can recall and what you forget.
I hope these suggestions help you.  It's clear you have a lot of motivation and that is a great start - keep it up!
Best wishes,

Hello ! I'm new in this team,I would like to ask where I can get the correct answers
of the grammar exercises  .
Thanks,
Omar

Hello Omar

When you get to the end of the exercise, if you click ‘Check Answers’ then you’ll see how many you got right and wrong, but you won’t see the answers in case you want to try again. If you click ‘Finish’ instead of ‘Check Answers’ then you’ll see the answers.
I hope that helps.
Best wishes,
