Dear Mr. Yang,

Thank you for your reply telling me that People's is correct. Of course it should be as it's the name of a nation, and we use to say Chinese people, instead of Chinese peoples, however, we can say the peoples of the commonwealth. Therefore, is The Peoples' Republic of China is grammatically correct? or it's a proper noun nothing to do with gramma or literacy?


Thank you again for an early reply to my silly question.

sincerely,
Thomas Lee

 

Peoples' Republic ' refer to the Mongolian people, the Manchurian people, the Tibetan people and also different minority group.

People's Republic ' stress that we are all 'one' people, irrespective of race. "People's Republic " is used to show the republic belongs to the people of China. It is not the King's republic, the general's republic, the bishop's republic, the rich men's republic, the Government's republic, but the republic of every person in the nation.

1: What does your father do? He is an architect but he isn't working at the moment.

2: We usually grow vegetables in our garden but this year we aren't growing any.

Why there use present continue tense? Can I use present S. tense?

 

Use 'present continuous' because the situation is continuing. The situation is still going on. It has not stopped yet. That is why we don't use 'present ' which refers to 'now' only.

Dear Mr Yang

can I re-word this sentence "It sounds like you are very condifent" in the following ways:

1. You seem very confident
2. It seems that you are very confident
3. You seem to be very confident

thank you for your guidance and best regards

Kat

 

Yes, but remember that a shorter sentence is better than a long sentence, a simple sentence is better than a diffucult sentence. So I like your first sentence best.
