Some adjectives go with certain prepositions. There is no real pattern – you need to learn them as you meet them.

Hello Justin,

We've got a section with some tips on preparing for the IELTS that I think you could find useful. I'd also highly recommend TakeIELTS, where you can find loads of information on the test, how to prepare for it and even some free practice materials.

Hello, I like to learn more english, read, listen, and speak.
Bad results for this exercise, but I´m insist.

Hi, I have been studying English for many years but I have a problem that I can't go beyond the intermediate level, I really need to improve it to just make it more advanced and more naturalized. I really appreciate your help and caring

Hello Mitra,

I think there are a lot of people who are in the same boat as you. Indeed, the more you wish to advance in most any language, the more difficult it is. I'd recommend that you read the advice on our Getting started and Frequently asked questions pages first. Then look for content on our site at the B2 level that looks interesting to you and begin applying the suggestions from those two pages to your work. I'd especially recommend keeping a vocabulary notebook and revising that vocabulary regularly. Don't just write down words – at the intermediate level and above, phrases and combinations of words are very important as well. Have a go at this for a couple of weeks and then let us know how you get on.

All the best,

I am experiencing confusion in the usage of Has and Have in the following sentence.
He is one of the greatest teachers who HAS/HAVE done alot for humanity.
Please help me!

Hello rathore36912,

What's confusing here is what the antecedent of 'who' is, i.e. does 'who' refer to 'one' or 'the greatest teachers'? If it's 'one', then the singular form 'has' is best; if it's 'the great teachers', then the plural form 'have' is correct. You could reformulate the sentence to something like 'He is a great teacher who, like many other great teachers, has done a lot for humanity.'

All the best,
