I am average in writing english but very bad in reading english. I am 23 years old and work as a content marketing executive.

what the difference between those sentences, and why
I haven't got any money
I haven't any money

Hello Anwar68,

The first sentence is correct and the second is not.

There are two ways to construct a negative with have for possession:

I haven't got any money.

I don't have any money.

When have is the main verb we need to use an auxiliary don't to make the negative.

 

The meaning of the sentences is the same, but haven't got is a little more informal and is more common in speech than writing.

Normanly,when I find someone in public place,I usually call a phone and ask them where they are.Then ask security or others the way to go there.

Very useful episode.

No necessarily, I just ask where is the person that I can't find and then I go to the place wherethe person is at the moment that I know.

It sometimes can be difficult to give direction someone . I think this episode will help us to improve our directions skill. Thanks :)

I was with my daughter in a Museum in Paris. She disappear. I coudn't find her. Then I stayed front off the exit for 50 minutes. She came smiling and me no. I was very worried with her. But the end was happy, we went to drink a very nice coffee after that!

Hello
I never lived the same situation, but one day, My friend and I, we have helped an 8 year old boy to find her mother, because he was to lost in the supermarket we went to do our shopping. So, what we did, we went to the reception point and to give it to the security officer.

One time I almost late on the bus because near was nobody speaks English. Nobody couldn't tell me where the bus terminal is. It was terrible.
