Is it ok if someone says, 'Don't kick the ball sitting' or it has to be 'while seated' or just 'seated' or 'in sitting position'?
and please also guide me about this:
Be standing while kicking the ball?
Be standing kicking the ball?
Stand while kicking the ball?

In my opinion, we have to encourage women to train, to believe in what they want and in particular we have to do something for facilities. Investing more money in girls we can give them the possibility to grow up them a percentage of sport and to be considered evenly matched.

Hello! How to understand "are you treated any differently to the boys..."? It's passive voice and there are some difficulties for me to understand. Does it mean that somebody think that women's football are not like football for men?

Hello LillySun,

As you say, the construction here has a passive verb form. The active form would be:

Do people treat you any differently to boys?

The question is asking if female player are given the same respect as male players, if they are treated as seriously and so on.

I love Volley Ball, the sport I was practicing as a teenager, but I like sportive gym, swimming, football, funboard, Stand Up Paddle and many others.
I would like to have a job related to sport, may be a journalist.
The women must obviously have the same rights than men. (Teachers : where must I put obviously ?)
I don't think GRS is for men (Gym with balls, ribbons and hoops..)

Hello Stephane,

'obviously' is an adverb that is fairly flexible in terms of its position in a sentence. Where you have put it is correct and probably the place I would also put it, but it could also be the first word of the sentence. In that case, and in general when an adverb is the first word, a comma is put after it: 'Obviously, women must have the same rights as men.' (Note I corrected two small errors in your otherwise perfect sentence.)

All the best,

AAARRGH !!! So many things to cope with.
Thank you so much for your very good reply.

My favourite sports are basketball, volleyball, taekwando, ice-skate.
I think, they shouldn't, every women can do all sports which they want to do.

Football and volleyball
In my opinion, they shouldn't
I don't know

My favourite sport is swimming. And I don't know any sports only men or only women should play.
