Letter to Teacher Alex
Dear Teacher Alex,
Where Do I Begin? .....
Although I don’t have formal homework from Teacher Alex today, I still have to do some homework.
Back to my student time when I was a little, let say under 18, I had to do my home work all the time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in Taiwan. If teacher didn’t assign any homework on that day, I still had to do my homework, i had to practice the stuff what teacher had taught me in those few days ago, again and again. For instance, teacher taught an example of one sentence, I have to practice to expand many sentences.
Let me try it........
Principle of the present perfect simple:
To describe an action which is finished, but we don’t know when it happened.
Principle of the present perfect continuous:
To describe an action which started in the past but is still continuous now.
1) (The present perfect simple): I have been a good student since I was little. (We don’t know when it happened.)
2) (The present perfect simple): I have tripped many countries (we don’t know when it happened.)
3) (The present perfect continuous): I have been knowing Junior Bush since he was a president of American, but he has not been knowing me. (It is still happened)
4) (The present perfect continuous): I have been eating 3 meals a day. (It is still happened)
“A celebrity is someone who is famous.” It is a definition of dictionary. As my dictionary, a celebrity is someone who is that the number of people knows his/her name more over than he/her knows theirs. For example, more students know Alex than Alex know the students. Thus and so, Alex is a celebrity on the English learning Blog.
In Taiwan, our Teachers’ day has been set on September 28, which is Confucius’s birthday (The present perfect continuous). In my student time, we do respect our Teacher. There is a saying in Chinese: Being teacher for one day, It would be the father in whole your life . We didn’t call teacher his/her name directly, we have addressed them Teacher Alex.
First time I knew the website of BBC Learning English was recommended by my brother-in-law Mr. Rod several years ago. Mr. Rod who has been a TV show host in New Zealand at that time (The present perfect simple).
Learning English can be fun
