Hiii,
I am new in English learning and I don't have any idea how to start learning so how can I start learning English help me about it

Hello Irfan Arab,

I just responded to another user who had the same question and I would recommend the same thing to you, except perhaps you should start with Series 1 instead of Series 3 (Series 1 is a bit harder). I'd recommend that, but you can use our site however you'd like to. And let us know if you have any questions!

All the best,

Dear Sir ,
We usually when we speak we say , "Children depends on their parents" or "Children are generally dependant on their parents" but is there an exception or a general rule that i should know about. For instance, i came across this sentence, "The growth of the service industry is dependent on their/its ability" , What should be the correct usage. ?

Hello LiprajSingh,

The verb is 'depend (on)' and it is a regular verb, so you should say 'Children depend on...' rather than 'Children depends on...'.

'Dependent (on)' is the adjective. You can use either the verb or the adjective - the meaning is the same, and it is simply a question of how you choose to express the idea.

what is the difference between past tense and past participle.

Hello MANOHAR SIVAN,

The past tense is used to describe completed actions in the past.

She went to work early this morning. [went is the past tense]

The past participle is a form of the verb which is not used by itself as a verb, but is used with auxiliary verbs to make other forms (present perfect, passive forms and others):

She has gone to work. [gone is the past participle; has is the auxiliary verb]

The past participle cannot be used on its own as a verb. It can also function as an an adjective:

I could not get through the locked door. [locked is a past participle functioning as an adjective]

Sometimes the past form and the past participle look the same, but they are two separate forms with different uses.
