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.
