Hello Kirk...

Is this grammatically correct?

Aaron handedover the folder to Beatrice.

Who did Aaron handover the folder to?

or

Who does Aaron handover the folder?

*do i need to use the preposition "to"at the end of the question?

Thanks for your help.

Hello choosehappiness,

You need to include the preposition here, so the first version is correct. However, there is a mistake elsewhere with the verb 'hand over', which is two words and is a separable phrasal verb. The correct question is either of these:

Who did Aaron hand the folder over to?

Who did Aaron hand over the folder to?

Hello teacher,
Could you please tell me the different meaning between two words "practice" and "practise"? Sorry about the question unrelated to this topic.
Thank you

Hello minhka,

In British English, 'practice' is a noun and 'practise' is a verb. In American English, 'practice' is both a noun and verb. By the way, the dictionary has this kind of information if you ever wonder about other words with similar spellings.

Hello Kirk. I am a montessori teacher.I am supposed to converse in English with my children throughout the school day. I want to ask you whether you can help me to know correct ways of saying or asking for something.I would not be a skelf, honestly . I would ask only through/in sentences and won't make you people read or correct long paragraphs. I want to ask the way of saying something (one at a time).
Is it correct to say 'Bring this chair to that table!' (here,I want to have someone bring and place the chair with my desired table).
Pleasssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssse be helpful. I am hopeful that here on Learn English you guys be helpful for me.

Hello hafs sara,

This is not really a service we provide, but if you want to ask us a few such short questions, that's OK.

You're sentence is correct as long as you're referring to a chair that is near you and a table that is closer to the listener. If the chair is closer to the listener, then you should say 'that chair', and if the table is closer to you, you should say 'this table'.

Teach them to do it themselves!

All the best,
Kirk

hi, i am ahsan. i want longer video file and want some friends to talk continuously

Why i can't watch the videos?

Hello Kamran,

I'd suggest you download and install the latest version of the Adobe Flash player on your device. That often solves this kind of problem. If you're still not able to see the video, please try a different browser or different device. If none of that works, please let us know what device, which version of which operating system and which browser you're using and we'll try to help you.

All the best,
