I invented a game at six form college called Gymnasium Arts and Craft, which was our ethic and arts teacher's idea.

It was with a mate as our teacher decided.

I believe graffiti is art if it is used graciously. Yes, I do enjoy computer games because it is a stress reliever and the games I play is about cooking but now I seldom play.

I think graffiti is another kind of art. Different people have different ideas about art. Some people are really good at graffiti. And I'm very fond of playing computer games, but at the same time, I'm terribly bad at it. I usually sat and watched my brother play computer games when I was young. Now we are both too busy to have time playing them.

Dear Adam,

Hello! Thank you for the backbreaking task 4, it makes me go crazy, still I managed to answer 7 questions except for #7, it took me ages.(I checked your correct answer, so sad...)
Can you please explain how the regret became regretted?
Thank you and more power!

Hello caryle,

'regret' is both a noun and a verb. In this sentence, it's used as a verb in the past simple, which indicates that this was something the person's mother felt in the past.

hi teacher, i facny understanding more about some expressions, e.g..

1) let's go take a look, if i say let'go and take a look, is it right?

2)we can make history speak to the present.....make history is like make , the verb speak is without to of because make, isn't it?

regards

Hi rosario70,

1) No, the form is 'let's go' - saying 'let'go' is not grammatical.

2) Yes, that's correct - verbs that come after 'make' go in the bare infinitive form (i.e. without 'to'): 'He made me do it' (=he obliged me to do it).

Best wishes,
