Why Stephen says the Christmas lunch but it turns out the dinner?

Hello toantq,

I know it's a bit confusing, but 'dinner' can be used to refer to the meal at midday, also referred to as 'lunch', and also to the meal in the evening (also referred to as 'tea' or 'supper').

Hello English Team! which sentence is correct 1- your name is in the flight manifest. 2- your name is on the flight manifest.

Hello Omer,

My intuition said 'on the flight manifest', but I'm not all that familiar with the field of aviation, so I've checked a corpus, which also suggests that 'on' is correct. I'd encourage you to become familiar with the Corpus of Global Web-based English - it essentially lists examples of sentences in which combinations of words have been used - as it could be very useful for these kinds of questions.

All the best,

Hello mariamejia,

Both are quite correct and are commonly used; there is no difference in meaning.

Hello vasanthakumar,

It's great that you want to practise speaking with someone, but I'm afraid that our House Rules, which are designed to protect users, prohibit the sharing of the kind of personal information you'd need to contact another user to do this.
