Hello again Shree99,

'anyone' is most commonly used in negative sentences and questions, but it's also possible to use it in affirmative sentences such as 'Anyone can sit here' when you are referring to an unlimited number of people or to the idea that it doesn't matter who it is. You can read a bit more about this on the Cambridge Dictionary page on any --  see the section of the strong form of 'any'.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Thanks, great exercise¡

what interesting lesson! Thanks.

To be honest, this English poscast has really made me smile so happily and unlimitedly.

Great lesson!

Hello there!!

One question, everybody introduces himself with: I am instead of my name is! Is this used in informal way? and formal?

Hello jpkeiros,

We use both of these to introduce ourselves but I would say that I'm... is much more common. My name is... is rather more formal and is more common in formal situations and in writing (at the start of a letter, for example).

Many thanks Peter, !!!

Hello again jpkeiros,

No, only option a is correct: We're waiting to meet Julie.


It is possible to make a sentence using the preposition 'for' but not with option b or c. You could say the following:

We're waiting for Julie.

We're waiting for a meeting.

We're waiting for the meeting.

We're waiting for the meeting with Julie.

However you cannot say:

We're waiting for meeting.
