Say or Tell?

Average: 3.1 (17 votes)

These two verbs are often confused. This is because they have the same meaning but are used in different ways.
Rules:

Say and tell can be used in both direct and indirect speech.
E.g.

Direct: "I said I'm hungry."

Indirect: "She told me she was hungry."

Body Idioms

Average: 3.4 (11 votes)

About a month ago we looked at animal idioms, now lets look at idioms that use parts of the body. For example,

"She was talking about medicine, but it all went completely over my head."

Nothing was thrown over somebody’s head! This is an expression meaning that something was too difficult for you to understand.

Auxiliary Verbs

Average: 3.6 (37 votes)

Auxiliary verbs are the verbs which help the main verb and give extra meaning to it. For example:

"I have studied English for three years."

The auxiliary verb have changes the tense of the sentence to present perfect, so we know the activity is ongoing.

"I studied English for three years."
