Dear sir,
Thanks for your useful lessons, and I'd like to ask you a question: What is the difference between 'meet' and 'see'? A foreigner said "Nice to see you!" when she and I have known already, but she said to my friend who haven't met before "Nice to meet you".
Best,

Hello buianh,

We use 'meet' the first time we meet someone and 'see' (or 'talk to') after that.

Best wishes,

Hi sir, I have a doubt. Can u pls tell me which one of this sentence is correct ant why?
1. One of my friend lives in Uk
2. One of my friends lives in UK

Hello Sasikala devi,

The second sentence is more correct, because you are speaking about one among your many friends. But please note you should say 'in the UK' - see our definite article page for an explanation of this.

Dear Team Leader,

I don't feel comfortable with the following sentence:

So Peter was not imagining and we have all seen the monster.

Am I right to say the word 'things' should follow 'imagining', or is the sentence fine?

Thanks for your help and clarification,

Yours sincerely,

Chen Laifa

Hello Chen Laifa,

Yes, you're right - 'imagine' is a transitive verb and therefore must have an object. The word 'things' is often used in sentences such as the one you ask about for this very reason.

Best wishes,
