Hi guys! Thank you for this useful activity Actually, I have a question, in task 4, I don´t get it which is the difference between 1 and 4 because in the 4 question "keep" does not take S

Hello pineda08,

I'm not completely sure that I understand your question.

In question 1 the answer is 'keeps eating' because the subject is 'he', which is a third-person form and so the verb ends in 's'.

In question 4 the answer is 'keep talking' because the subject is 'you', which is a second-person form and so the verb does not end in 's'.

Very good activity about present and past continuos. Thank

I remember one day, I was watching a football match and I listened to a supporter saying to a player " KEEP PLAYING! " and from that situation, I learnt this word.

I really like your videos

Good Day Everyone:-
Away from the that case of flag;moreover,irrespective of any other notice about the video, i verily liked the clear detailed accent, the vehicle whereby they presented the grammatical notion in addition to the funny spirit the characters were showing up. when all is and done, i would apply the same way of presenting grammar in front of my
students.
**** cheers****

Thank you for this useful activity. Actually, social media is very important these days in promoting both ideas and products.

I saw 2 pillows which have the U.K flag whereas your actors was sating on them !
Isn't a bad manner?

Hello anasri,

This is really a question of how cultures are different in different countries. The flag of a country is a symbol of that country, but for people in the UK the image of the flag does not require special treatment; it is simply an image and it is not disrespectful to treat it in the way you describe. Of course, if someone took an image of the flag and acted provocatively with it then it would be insulting to many, but no particular veneration is required in normal everyday life.

For us a picture of the flag is not the same as the flag itself, and so it is seen on many things as simply a form of decoration. You can see the Union Flag (also called the Union Jack) on cups, clothes, pillows and many other things.

 

Best wishes,

Actually I want to ask the team about this question but I’m really afraid because this a sensitive question. Do you see? The union jack derived from the flag of England and the flag of England is derived from St George's Cross? This is about religion’s symbol

would you like to explain this matter for us, please?
