I'm really enjoying learnEnglish.I've found it about hours ago,i'm sure with this methods i'll improve my English quickly.Happy new year everyone !!

good tip

Hi.is this sentence true?she has extensive knowledge about her career. Or shuld we use an before extensive? Thankyou

Hi Mohammed.
I think the sentence is good grammatically. Using "an" will make it sounds as if it is a specific or particular knowledge about her career, whilst the emphasis here is on general knowledge about her career. The sentence sounds same like "she has broad knowledge..."
Thanks

Hello Mohammad56,

The sentence looks fine to me without 'an'. However, it is difficult to comment with absolute certainty without knowing the full context.

Hi.please help me to fill these words in the blanks. There are the words intensify and extend which we have to use their correct forms.1.The new CEO of the company has........knowledge of the market after decades of being in the industry. 2.Scientists earn that droughts and floods will become more common if we don't. .........our efforts to prevent global warming. Thankyou

Hi Mohammed,
My suggestions are:
"broad" for the first gap;
"make" for the last gap.
Thanks

Hi Mohammad56,

I'm afraid we don't provide answers to questions or tasks from elsewhere. If we tried to do this then we would soon end up doing everyone's homework for them, and that is their job, not ours!
