Dear Mr. Yang,

I'd like to know the difference between the following phrases:

1) I will leave tomorrow.
2) I will be leaving tomorrow.
3) I'm leaving tomorrow.
4) I'm going to leave tomorrow.
5) I'm going to be leaving tomorrow.

I've heard that some of the above phrases would be more appropriate
for use when a date/time has been specified, but I don't know about
the details.

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely,
Jeff

 

Dear Jeff

I would say the first is good when you are writing . The others mean more or
less the same thing , more often used when speaking . But my own preference is not to use 4 and 5 at all .
The " going to " means nothing .

Dear Mr. Yang,

I would like to ask the meaning of two English words. What are the
different of " Impossible is nothing"
and " Nothing is impossible"?

Thank you very much!

Regards,
Jacqueline

 

Dear Jacqueline,

'Impossible is nothing' , I guess , means nothing is impossible . It is in fact
bad English . The grammar is wrong . " Impossible ' is an adjective , here it
is used as a noun . It is wrong . It makes no sense to me ."Nothing is
impossible is correct ".

Dear Mr Yang,


I would like to know the usage of "marry".When I consult the Longman
dictionary,it's an example of that "They got married last April ; they've
been married for a year " The Chinese translation is that
"他們去年四月結婚,至今已有一年了。"
However, I read a grammer book stated the action of "marry" cannot use
the present perfect tense. Is it a question of the explaination in the
dictionary?

On the other hand, I would like to know the meaning of the following
sentences and the grammer is correct or not :
I haven't walked down the aisle.(我未結婚)
I don't walk down the aisle.(我不會結婚)

I am eager you to answer the question. Thank you.

Your truly,


Alan YIP

 

Dear Alan,

'Aisle' is the walkway down the centre of the church . It refers to the couple
walking down the aisle towards the altar . The Chineses meanings are correct .

Dear Mr. Yang,

I always hear people saying "big time". What does it mean?

Thanks!

C.Y.L.

 

Dear C.Y.L,

'Big time ' is a noun . It means great success in a profession , especially in
the entertainment business . eg . the singer hits the big time .
