Hello maleksadeghi230,

We're happy to try to help you with our materials. We only ask that you ask us specific questions about specific sentences. On a page with video like this one, if you don't understand a sentence, you can refer to the time code (e.g. 1:05-1:10).

All the best,

Hello, I have a doubt, for example, when using used or use, look in English very prepositions, for me very difficult, I'm sorry...

Hello Claudinéia Miranda Silva,

Do you mean prepositions such as on, in, at, towards etc?

Or do you mean different forms of the verb such as used, using, use etc?

We'll be happy to help if you have any specific questions, and you can also use the search facility to look up particular words or phrases.

 

Best wishes,

Peter

HI LearnEnglish Team
I am a little bit confused about the use of use to or used to.
Could you explan me?
thank you in advance

Hello Medicine,

If you search our site for 'used to', you'll find at least two other pages that explain it: ‘used to + infinitive’ and ‘be/get used to’ and Past habit – used to/would/past simple. If you still have a question after reading them, we're happy to help you, but please ask us a specific question, as we don't provide general explanations that are already available on our website!

All the best,

Hello PAO_CG,

That sentence isn't correct in standard English. You could say either 'If you came, I would go' or 'If you come, I will go' instead. The first one is a second conditional and the second one is a first conditional – see our Conditionals 1 page for more information on how to use the verbs in these cases.

I think that page will clear up the issue for you, but if not, please feel free to ask us again.

All the best,
Kirk

Thanks

This lesson was understandable. Thanks.

I have problem in usage of 'that'. sometimes I see it is in sentence sometimes not.Is there any rule for use of 'that'.
Similar is for some other words like when,some prepositions.

Hello innocentashish420,

I'm afraid this is far too broad a question for us to answer. 'That' has many uses and functions in sentences and it is not possible for us to explain them all in the comment sections. You can use the Online Dictionary to search for 'that' and see many examples.

Best wishes,

Peter
