Hello sir,
What is the difference between these two sentences
1.I speak English
2.I do speak English
Please give me reason why to use..

Hello Ajaz ajju,

These are examples of the present simple. Normally we do not use the auxiliary (do/does) in affirmative sentences, but only in questions and negatives. However, we can add 'do' or 'does' when we want to make the sentence more emphatic. For example:

I speak English.

No, you don't!

Honestly, I do speak English!

hello sir,
i did not understand the of following sentence.

"he knew, i wasn't got to let him do it. he was just trying it on".

I'm confused about the portion of the sentence ( i wasn't got to) is it passive? if so what is the meaning of this. Does it has any reason to use it here? or any special structure?

i looked up this phrase 'get to' in dictionary accordingly some popular dictionaries ' get to ' means ' be able to or manage to do...' and also it is never used in passive.

please explain this sentence and its meaning especially that portion which is mentioned above.

Hello ahmednagar,

I'm afraid that sentence does not look correct to me, though it could, I suppose, be a dialectical variant. It looks to me like it should be 'wasn't going to' not 'wasn't got to'.

Hello maryse 974,

If you can't see the game at all then it may be a compatibility problem. The game requires Flash-compatibility, which is often lacking on mobile devices such as phones and tablets. Please try accessing the site via a different device to see if this solves the problem for you.

Best wishes,
