If we saw our friend with other girlfriend or boy friend we knew what we have to do?

Caronlina's absolutely right ,. ..! and I love cooking and cook at home for my parents and Try many dishes ... I like potatoes ...

Hello, I'm not agree with the recipe of mashed potatoes(" purée" in french). You have to add butter an milk after the potatoes have been mashed and mix with a wood spoon. The quantity of milk and butter depends of the potatoes quality.
Thank you again for your website

I and my wife prefer cooking at home. In the morning we reheat soup from the fridge and make coffee. In the evening we buy some food on the way home and cook dinner together. Usually we eat fried eggs or kasha with meat and vegetable salad.
Our favorite way to cook potatoes - is frying.

Hi everyone,
Someone please tell me what's the difference between following two clauses.
1. I believe organic strawberries are worth paying money for.
2. I believe it's worth paying money for organic strawberries.

The first one I've found on a website that I am learning English, and the second one is how I am used to expressing such a statement. I know the first one is right, but I want to know how I get used to expressing such a statement is correct or not? if it's not correct, explain me why it is?

Hello Tharanga1180,

There is no difference in meaning between the two sentences. It's quite normal to be able to express an idea in more than one way, so I don't think there's anything you need be concerned about here, though it's good practice to learn to express things differently than you normally might.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

I wanna thank you it is very helpful exercises.

thank so much for great work
