Hi teacher,
I have a question about the difference between express "It should be here in any minute now"and "It should be here any minute now", is it because here with the word "now" so we don't need to add"in"?

Sophy

Hello Sophy622,

I'd never thought of it that way, but what you say makes sense. In the end, people say what they say because it's the way other people speak, so there's not always a very satisfactory reason for some expressions.

All the best,

Must we say "fully of people" or "full of people" ? What's the difference ?
Thanks

Hello STEPHANE ROTH,

The correct form here is 'full of people', which means that there were many people in a given place: the square was full of people.

'Fully of people' is grammatically possible but it would have the meaning 'completely of people'. It's hard to think of a context in which it would make sense. Perhaps something like: The success of our company is fully [the result of the] people who work in it.

 

Best wishes,

thank you

I love history so i would like to see historical places

I would like to see historical and natural places and also their schools, hospitals, workplaces,restaurants etc. because I wander lives of people who have been living there and sometimes I really have difficulty understanding American accent.

I would like to visit the historical sites to learn the history of the city

Me too, We can learn much about the history from the historical sites

First , I would like to visit the historical sites to learn the history of the city . Then , I would go to a restaurant or a cafe . Also I would walk on the streets to see the people . And I think American Accent is harder to understand than British Accent .
