Hai... I have joined learn English few hours ago. I am enjoying it. Well, i wanted to know how the word "literally" can be used in sentences. And also wanted to know what does it exactly mean. Like people say " literally saying...."

Hello Div,

I'd suggest you check the dictionary entry for 'literally' so you can see the definitions and example sentences there. I think that should answer your questions, but if you have any other specific ones, please let us know.

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Thank you for your response.

Hi.please help me to fill these words in the blanks. There are the words intensify and extend which we have to use their correct forms.1.The new CEO of the company has........knowledge of the market after decades of being in the industry. 2.Scientists earn that droughts and floods will become more common if we don't. .........our efforts to prevent global warming. Thankyou

Hi Mohammed,
My suggestions are:
"broad" for the first gap;
"make" for the last gap.

Hi Mohammad56,

I'm afraid we don't provide answers to questions or tasks from elsewhere. If we tried to do this then we would soon end up doing everyone's homework for them, and that is their job, not ours!


Best wishes,


The LearnEnglish Team
