Hello, is it correct to use a plural form of verb in the second sentence of the first task "Neither Sarah nor Carlos like football"?

Hello Sergey,

Singular or plural can be used after 'neither'. The traditionally correct form is the singular, but both are used quite commonly in modern English.

hi! I have a question. What's tenes use in this sentence: "You should try going out with him again."?

Hi Yszka,

Modal verbs don't change form to make different tenses, but I suppose you could say these are present tense forms.

All the best,

Hello there, I have one question, in the next sentence:
Oh, don't go AND see that movie
Shouldn´t it be
Don´t go TO see......?

Hello jpkeiros,

The phrase 'go and... [verb]' is used with the sense of either 'go to a place and [verb]' or 'go ahead and [verb]'. It's a quite a common phrase in informal speech. You can say 'go to [verb]' as well and it has a similar meaning in most contexts.


Best wishes,
