Hello Ahmed Imam,

A code is a way of masking a message so that it cannot be understood by anyone who does not know the code. The message may be seen, but the meaning is not known.

A password is a way of stopping access to any form of data. It is used with a username or login.

Hello. Could you please help me?
Are the two following sentences correct?
- Tom is about to do work experience with a clothing factory during the summer vacation.
- Tom is about to do work training with a clothing factory during the summer vacation.
Thank you.

Hello Ahmed Imam

I would recommend using 'get some work experience' in the first one, but otherwise those sentences are fine.

All the best

Hello again. Concerning the noun and the gerund, can we use "sleep" and "sleeping" in the following sentence? Why?
- During my sleeping, I heard some loud noise.
Or
- During my sleep, I heard some loud noise.
Really, I appreciate your help.
Thank you.

Hello. Which one is correct?
Thank you.

Hello Ahmed Imam

The second one is better than the first because we tend to use the noun 'sleep' instead of 'sleeping', though of course the latter is also a noun.

I'd say 'While I was sleeping' is even more common than either of the clauses in your comment.

All the best

Hello again
Which one is correct or both are OK?
- Greenpeace is an international organisation that protects the environment.
- Greenpeace is an international association that protects the environment.
Thank you.

Hello Ahmed Imam,

I think 'organisation' is the best option here. You can easily check this by visiting the relevant wikipedia page or the home page for Greenpeace itself to check which word they use.

Hello. Could you please help me?
Is the following sentence correct? If so, what is the meaning of it?
- I can't phone my mother because she is available at work.
Thank you.

hello Ahmed Imam,

The sentence is grammatically correct, but does not seem to make sense. If a person is available then they can be contacted, so there is a contradiction there.
