Hello MANOHAR SIVAN,

You can find general suggestions on improving writing on our FAQ page. More specific advice would depend on the kind of writing you need or wish to do - emails, reports, essays, letters and so on.

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.

Hello Heba Bayan,

Welcome to LearnEnglish! This is an English-only site, so we don't have any materials specifically on translation. However, I'm sure our materials will be useful in improving your overall English level, and I think the grammar sections will be useful to you in particular.

Best wishes,

Hello everyone

this is the fist time I comment here, I hope I can improve my writing and speaking skill most. I have some troubles with the process of writing learning here, may you show me steps? Have I got to pratice on all of 13 Genre families?

and could you please check some errors in my comment too?

Best wishes

Hello tranthanhrenv,

This part of the site is aimed at writing for academic purposes rather than general writing. If that is your goal, then this section will be very helpful to you. As to whether you need to work on all of the genre families, I would say it depends on your course of study. If you are studying humanities then your needs will be different to those of a person studying experimental science, for example.

I also suggest you take a look at our Help page, which has a lot of suggestions and advice for learning English in general, including improving your writing skills.

I'm afraid we don't correct work on LearnEnglish. We have many thousands of members and it is not something that we are able to do - if we tried then we would have no time for anything else!

 

Best wishes,

Peter
