Hello jharna

Yes, it's possible to use 'the' in the first poster and in fact is what we would say in a normal text. But often signs have abbreviated language -- that is, nonessential words are removed -- to make the message shorter. That's why it's not in the first poster.

All the best

Now and when I was younger, I was afraid of exams.

hi guys. my name is anny, i just moved to the united states, and i am trying to improve my english skills. i was wondering if any of you could help me. i'm afraid to speak with people face to face, i know it sounds stupid, considering the fact that it will help me to gain confidence and to develop my skills, but i will be glad if any of you could me.

Hi Anny,

It can be hard to become more confident in a second language. The key is practice. The more you use English, the more confident you will become. Since you are in an English-speaking environment now, you have plenty of opportunity to practise and you will improve. Remember, most people are very patient when someone is learning the language. Think about how you react when someone is trying to speak your language and is having problems. Most people will be positive and try to help, so don't feel bad if your English is not perfect. Keep trying and it will improve!

No, in this momento don`t have exams, I put a lot of for my students jajajaja jajajaj

Obviously, like all the students I took many tests. When we knew in advance that the teacher was going to interrogate us, I wasn't afraid. But when he surprised us with a surprise test, I wasn't sure onmyself. And I didn't like that.
After, I became myself a teacher. I always told my students the date of the test.

Yes, I like exams.

I used to have before when I was at collage, but now I'm working so It's rarely to have.
For me having exams makes me too worried and stressful, however, I like it for I feel the challenge with myself and others.

Yes, i like more

Yes, I have about 12 exams after 3 moths. I have to give those exams during 20 days, they will select the start and end dates.
