As Nuala is not around this week, I am correcting your homework.So let's look at your possessives first. I'm judging your answers on correct use of possessives. If there are other problems, I'll mention them in my feedback.Possessives:1. It was on New Year's eve in 2005. Correct (except Eve needs to be capitalised).2. Our company secretary. Correct.3. You have to meet client's expectations. Correct (but we need the definite article 'the client's expectations').4. A Russian accountants' conference. Correct.5. Our team's idea and development. Correct (although I'm not sure what your team's idea is – do they have only one idea?)6. I was on an event management presentation. Correct.7. The sorcerer's hat become the logo of Disney Hollywood studio. Correct (but became rather than become).8. When I was reading, I was living among the heroes of the book. Correct (however I would say that 'living among the book's heroes' sounds ok to me too).9. In this book he describes rich young man's life. Correct (but we need the indefinite article 'a rich young man's life').10. With each of his word you begin to imagine and feel the atmosphere of his novel. Correct (but we need the plural form 'each of his words').Prepositions:All correct.You asked why we say 'believe in God'. The simple answer to that is that when we talk about beliefs, religious faiths and our personal principles we use the preposition in.Examples:I believe in life after death.I believe in a fair day's work for a fair day's pay.I believe in solving conflict by talking.Well done Jan.Diarmuid Mon 28 Jun 2010 12:34:07 GMT+1 Rauan http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/06/homework-6.shtml?page=50#comment3 This post has been Removed Fri 25 Jun 2010 11:28:34 GMT+1 learner_E http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/06/homework-6.shtml?page=33#comment2 Hi Jan, In my opinion, the Possessive case only have the form of 's and of.Does the example NO.2 belong to a Possessive case? No need 's?I see it a bit strange. And the sentence 'It's a kitchen of event!' is defficult to understand.Does the 'a kitchen of ' is a idiom?I never seen it before.Happy every day!Niu Thu 24 Jun 2010 12:27:36 GMT+1 Jan http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/06/homework-6.shtml?page=16#comment1 Hi dear Mahjabeen!Thanks for your comment! Every time I receive them, I feel more and more confident. Today I was speaking in English with one of my fiends 3 hour running, and at the end he couldn't believe that I'd made such a progress after one month only. I still can't remember some words, but now I can explain the meaning with other words. And I still have mistakes, but now It's easier to understand what I talk about, because I try to speak English more or less rather then translate from Russian into English. I really hope this experience will help me in my future work and bring me success! Which I wish you also!Best wishes,Jan Wed 23 Jun 2010 20:09:59 GMT+1 Mahjabeen http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/learningenglish/2010/06/homework-6.shtml?page=0#comment0 Hi Jan! You're a good learner.
