  1. I’m now taking an English subject in Truman. I just want to ask how can I register here in your website. Thanks.

  2. Crisanto,

    I think you are asking me how to register for our eslhelpdesk and “Library” so you can have access to our online resources, grammar lessons, and podcasts.

    From the blog’s home page, go to the first tab on the top, “Home” and it will say “Visit our HOME PAGE at http://www.eslhelpdesk.com.” There is a hyperlink there and just click on http://www.eslhelpdesk.com.

    That is the main site.

    From there, you can scroll down on the left sidebar to “Register for Our Library” and click there. It will take you to “Library Registration“. Your other alternative is to click on “Library” on the orange horizontal bar on the top of the page, and when you find the orange horizontal bar that says “New User Registration: If You’re Not Currently Registered”, click and enter your information there.

    Registration is free.

    Thank you,

    Jane
    p.s. You can also just follow the hyperlinks in this reply, in particular the hyperlink for “New User Registration: If You’re Not Currently Registered.

    2. Those post-war soldiers are afflicted by the guilty of cruelty of the war.
    3. The bank has imposed strict regulations on the house loan repayment.

    Thank for your time agian, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours,

  4. Peter,

    To answer your question, yes, we could! But tell us first why you want us to do this!

  5. Dear ESL Help! Desk,

    I happened to read your webpage, and found the resources on it very helpful and useful. I am from South Korea learning English in order to study aborad. Those three sentences are what I wrote in one of my writing exams of this month. I’d be apprciated if you could correct any mistakes for me, if you have a spare minute.

    Thank you~
    Peter

  6. Peter,

    Good luck with your goal to study abroad.

    Then the most important thing is not these three sentences but that you use this as a vehicle for improving your English, and having a better command of English grammar and sentence structure. I’ll help you to improve these sentences, and here they are:

    1. Talking full of air does not account for anything.

    Although the sentence is structurally correct, I’m not sure what point you are trying to make. Can you try to reword this to make a stronger point? What is “talking full of air”?

    2. Those post-war soldiers are afflicted by the guilty of cruelty of the war.

    Do you know the word “veterans”? See if you can use the word “veterans” in that sentence. Also, “guilty” is an adjective. You are writing “the ____” so what form of speech would you want to be using there? Also, you should probably use an article “the” also before “cruelty” which is also a noun since in the sentence you seem to be referring to something specific.

    3. The bank has imposed strict regulations on the house loan repayment.

    This one is pretty good though it needs a bit of polishing up. First, we would not use “house”. Some people make their house their home, and others make their condominium their home. So we use the word “home” to replace to the principal residence of a person, rather than the word “house” which refers to a physical structure. Secondly, the object of the preposition at the end could be improved. I think you are not referring to the repayment, but to the repayment schedule. Look that up in a dictionary, and see how you can incorporate that word into the sentence to improve it.

    Get back to me! I’d like to see your next version!

    Thanks,

  7. I need help too. Is it acceptible to say “interior illustration” when I mean more than one picture? Is this an error that needs to be corrected, or may I leave it as it is? I mentioned this in the copyright page of my book, and I wonder if it is okay to let it go. Please help. Thank you.

  8. Dee,
    You would need to provide more context in order for this question to be answered appropriately. You would need to provide a complete sentence, and explain who you are writing to, etc.

  9. Hello. I have read through this and realised that there are some mistakes that I make during writing, especially on the tenses.

    I am currently studying and I need some help on this.

    1. Is there any difference between ‘also can’ and ‘can also’? Which one is correct? It was said that we can only use ‘can also’ but in certain books, they wrote ‘also can’. While some mentioned that ‘also can is more informal while can also is more formal’.
    2. Still the same thing similar to the previous one, with verb to be, is ‘is also’ or ‘also is’ correct? For example: I am seventeen. I am also studying Form 5. or I am seventeen. I also am studying Form 5.

    Thanks!

  10. Dixon,

    Your English is quite good. Where do you live? Do you live in the U.K.? How long have you spoken English?

    Back to your question, which is quite good: In both cases, the more common is to place “also” after the first auxiliary. In the first case, the first auxiliary is the modal “can”. In the second case, the first auxiliary is the be verb, “is” – in this case, “am”.

    Sorry for taking so long to respond.

  11. Hello.

    Thanks for the reply. As for your questions, I live in Malaysia at the moment, and well… I think I had only speak English for a few years, even though I was taught in the school for around 10 years, still what I had learnt are confusing theories though. Like the term ‘auxiliary’, ‘determiner’, etc, it is hard for me to memorize them though.

    Thanks for the compliment too, as I am still quite poor in terms of using the tenses, especially advanced tenses like perfect or participles.

  12. Well, keep it up! You’ll do well with English.

    Oh, terms like “auxiliary” and “determiner” can drive anybody crazy. They only began to make sense to me when I was studying linguistics, in particular what we call “transformational grammar”. We would take sentences and chart them out to understand the structure of English, and the structure of that particular sentence.

    If you understand the logic behind terms like “auxiliary” and “determiner” then you don’t have to memorize anything because you understand the logic of the language. For example, words like “a” and “the” always precede nouns. So if you see a word like “a” and “the”, you know that a noun will follow. This is what we mean by “noun determiner”. The words “a” and “the” determine the presence of a noun.

    “Participles” are not tenses. They are verb forms. Please go to my introductory lessons on VERBS to help clarify the difference between a verb FORM (present participle, past participle, etc.) and a verb tense (present progressive, present perfect, etc.)

    Yours,

  13. Dear client,
    I am a student at Swinburne University in Melbourne, Australia and I am currently studying a subject called “Digital Media Design”.
    The first stage of our project this semester is to choose a podcast we’re interested in and to redesign the podcast identity artwork in consultation with the podcast’s author.
    The second stage of the project is to design a number of web banners to animate the new identity and to promote the podcast.
    I’m writing to you to ask if you’re willing to allow me to redevelop your podcast identity for the purposes of this project. After completing the subject I’m more than happy for you to use the new artwork and banner for free on your podcast and/or website, and of course all rights to the work will remain yours – although I would like to have permission to use the artwork in my folio to promote my work.
    There are some limitations to the artwork style – it must be done in Adobe Illustrator and be vector graphics.
    Please let me know if you’re interested. Part of this project is to learn about and to practice client communication and I would be really happy to work with you on the designs.
    Thank you very much for your time,
    SIQI ZHAO
