Around vs about



Hi folks,

I'm taking an online course, and after present me on a forum I received a correction. My post was:

I've studied English for around 3 years.

The correction was:

I've studied English for about 3 years.

Why my first post is incorrect? When should I use about and around?

Thank you!

Re: Article



Hi honey bager

1. It must be 'the': '... a different RM from the RM I had long known.'

(The second RM is qualified/described by the phrase 'I had long known.' Because it is qualified in that manner, it becomes a specific/particular RM, and therefore the definite article 'the' is used.)


2. It must be #4 'every'

First, this is a set phrase/idiom.

#2  'all' can be eliminated because it would require a plural after it, but 'reason' is singular.

Besides #4, another possible answer is to put no qualifier before the noun: He had reason to behave like that.

Re: Your Yahoo e-mail



honeybadger, please check the date/time on your computer. Your e-mail says it was sent on 7/1, but I got it only today (7/14). Or did it get lost for 13 days?

Hi everyone,

This letter is a monthly reminder for everyone in EngFor.

Please sign your posts and clean them up before you send them. By "cleaning up", I mean deleting the bulk of
previous posts that have accumulated due to multiple replies and long messages. Leave only enough to help
readers make sense of your response. Thanks.

** To beginning English learners: 

Please feel free to write messages about any topic or question. Do not let the advanced level of English of
some of our list members scare you off. We are here to help you learn. Make mistakes boldly. It is the best way
to learn and we have all studied at least one other language so we know what it is like.

** About corrections:

Our policy is that every mistake will be corrected, so you can trust what you read here to be correct, or
corrected soon thereafter. (Make sense?)

However: 

The exception to this policy is when a conversation gets going (which we encourage), we will not always go
through every message to give corrections unless we are specifically asked to do so. We want to encourage
the free flow of ideas and practice, practice, practice.

** To native English speakers:

You are encouraged to jump in and help with the corrections. We only ask that before you do so, you add your
information to the database of EngFor Subscribers so that people will know you have the knowledge and
experience that they can trust. 

** To non-native English speakers:

You, too, are encouraged to help with corrections. Again, we ask that you include your information in the
database of EngFor Subscribers or indicate in the message that you are attempting a correction as a
non-native speaker. This is a great way to learn.

**** How to add your information to the database of EngFor Subscribers: ****

Go to www.yahoogroups.com, sign in, and enter EngFor. Click on Database on the left and click on EngFor
Subscribers in the list of databases. Then click on Add Record. Fill in the fields and click on Save Record.
You can change your information at any time by clicking on the Edit link to the right of your listing in the database.

** Everyone is also welcome to add a picture of themselves to our Photos section.

Thanks to all who help make EngFor a success!

Listowner,
Cynthia
