Hi everyone!
It's been a long time I come back here. I'm still waiting for the new series. How helpful these series are! I know that all the staffs have been working hard for series 5. Thank you very much and the hope that all of you are in good health!
By the way, I also want to improve my speaking skill. So I'm looking for a friend who can talk to me in English. We can chat, or text. Just once or twice a week depending on our free time. Is there anyone can help me, please? Thank you so much for reading my comment!
All the best,

I'm looking for a friend too, to practice my skills. I read books in english, watching at movies with english subtitle, i understand when someone speaks..but when i need to talk fluent in is my problem.

I'm glad that you want to practise speaking English! Here is my facebook address xxxxxxxx

Hello Rosie Phan,

It's great that you want to practise your English so much! However, I'm afraid our House Rules ask users not to share their personal details. This is for data protection reasons and is a part of British Council policy.

Well. I haven't read the policy clearly. I'm sorry about that. I'll find another way. Thanks for letting me know that.

I just want to ask a question !!

Is it a correct sentence : The general information was needed to be updated. !!!??

Hello HootanB,

'was' is not needed in your sentence, as 'need' is not passive here.

All the best,

Dear Kirk

Is it a specific rule in this case ?! sometime I see (be+past participle)/Passive sentence in the sentence and in rare situations , I see without be but the verb has past participle form.

Thank you in advance for your reply


'Needed' here is not a past participle but a regular past simple form. It is followed by a passive infinitive ('to be + past participle).

I need to build a wall [need + active infinitive]

The wall needs to be built [need + passive infinitive]

It is possible to use 'need' in a passive construction but it sounds quite unnatural in many contexts:

Building a wall is needed / The bulding of a wall is needed

You can also use a gerund after need to give a passive meaning:

The wall needs building [need + gerund]
