Hi, everyone.
My teacher said: "I write" and "I write a letter are the same". WHY?
I think I can understand "I write" to be "I write a passage" or "I write a sentence".

Hello glaciatran7777,

'Write' on its own simply means to make linguistic marks on a surface. It does not tell us what you are going to write, though this may be obvious in some contexts.

The Valentine's Day is not popular in our country
People usually meet in cafés in our country

Valentine’s Day is not much popular in Turkey. Usually they date with someone they know.

In this sentence "You ring the bell when you don't want to speak to someone any more" the adverb shouldn't be written "anymore" in one word?
Thanks for your answer.

Hi chris74500,

There is a useful summary of the difference between 'any more' and 'anymore' here.

In your example 'any more' is used as an adverb meaning 'no longer' and it is possible to write it as two words or one. In British English it is more common to write it as two words; in American English writing it as one word is more common.

The song is great. I really want to know what it is. Could you tell me name of the song, please?

it is "A date with you" - Franck Sarkissian

Hello phuongthao96,

Most of the music that is heard in Word on the Street, including the music in this song, was written and performed especially for it. This means we don't know what it's called, nor is it something you can easily find. Sorry!

All the best,
