How to use sequencing ia very important still today I was using 'then' for sequencing.Thaanks for such a nice activity

The use of sequencing markers.
How someone earns money.
Hello ! My name's Oumou, unfortunatetly I am not at school that's why I help my mother with the housework, however that's not enough, I must contribute to the family income, how?
First of all my mother buys 20 liters of palm oil.
Then I sell it for 10 thousand francs per liter. Usually it takes three(3) days to sell all the palm oil.
Once I've done that, I give the profit to my mother to save.
Finally when I grow up I'll sit in a big market to sell clothes of wax and shoes for ladies and girls in order to get more money.

Hello Oumou,

Thanks for your comment, and I am impressed with your hard work.

I need an explanation because I can't deal with the test, I tried: first of all - then - next - once- finally, but in vain. How can I deal with test, by clicking on the paragraphs in order (what I did) or what?

Hello again Oumou,

Are you speaking about Task 2? After you press the 'Finish' button, it becomes the 'Check answers' button. If you press that, you can see the correct answers.

You could also refer back to Task 1 and copy the sequencers from there.

If it's Task 1 that you are having trouble with, when you want to drop a sentence in a new position, you have to click or press on the small white hand (on the right) of the sentence that is in new position.

Does that make sense? It's easy to do but a little difficult to explain, so if you'd like us to describe how to do it again, please let us know.

All the best,

Kirk

I really like these small lessons and activities. They are very interesting,I wiil use them with my students. The lessons are simple and easy to understand.

Hi English Team,
There is a sentence: 'I'm not keen on going to the cinema - but I do like watching movies at home'. Could you tell me, what a grammatical role of 'do' is (in such cases)? Thanks.

Hi Tom First,

We use 'do' as an auxiliary verb in affirmative sentences to add emphasis. It is especially common when we are correcting someone:

You don't like her, do you?

That's not true! I do like her!

 

Best wishes,

Good video to improve your speaking skills Thanks a lot

Hello dear team,
Could I say?
“If you have done that…….”
Substitute from
“Once you’ve done that…..”
If I want to give some instructions to someone.
