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.

Hi I would like to ask to you if the question '' How do I get from Paris to London '' is write. If it's not ,why?

Hi FILIPOIMIN,

That sentence is fine, apart from lacking a question mark at the end.

Don't forget the difference between 'right' and 'write' by the way!

Best wishes,

Hello Iris Jee,

That's a very general question and I think the information on the page is as clear as it can be; I'm not sure what I can add to it, really. Is there something in particular that you don't understand about this topic?
