A simple review for you today. Read through the 14 sentences and complete them using the following words:

go, goes, going, went or gone.

This is basic English; however, I often hear English learners using the wrong verbs when speaking. Take a moment to look at the context of each sentence before making your choice.

2 options are possible for question 7. 'Went'  is ok, but which other word can we use?

uncountable and countable nouns

Average: 3.2 (25 votes)

So what's the difference between countable and uncountable nouns?

Let's take a look at two nouns: cars and water. If you stand outside you will proabably see cars passing. You can count these cars 1 car, 2 cars, 3 cars and so on.

Water, however, can not be seperated and counted. We do not say 1 water, 2 waters.

So now we know that cars are countable and water is uncountable.

Gerunds vs Infinitives

Average: 2.8 (41 votes)

Many students have expressed difficulties regarding whether to use the gerund form of a verb or the infinitive form. Deciding which to use is not always easy, but the more you read and listen to English, the easier it will become. Sometimes either the gerund or the infinitive form can be used, either with the same or different meanings, and sometimes there is only one form which is correct.
