Dear Mr. Yang,

There is a question that I would like to ask. What is the different between "Raise" and "Rise"? I looked up the dictionary, they also mean "increase in amount or level" at one of the meanings.However, I would like to ask," Are these two words a little bit different in the usage when they also mean increasing? 

Also, how to say "看書要看上文下理才可明白一個英文字的意思" in English? I look forward to your reply. Thank you very much. 

Yours sincerely,

Alan Yip

 

It may be a verb . eg. "The sunrises" "The sea level rises." " The students rise for the teacher ."

" Rise " may also be a noun . eg. "the rise of price of oil "" He received a pay rise ." ' The rise of China's ecomony "" The international standing of China sees a rapid rise ."

"'Raise " is a verb , there must be an object. "Rise" as a verb , there is no object. For details , see Oxford advanced learner's English Chinese Dictionary 6th edition .

要看書..... 的意思 , when you are reading , in order to understand a word, you must read the words before and after that word . Then you may understand the English word .

1. 中文的"托人大腳"怎樣說?

1. 英文中沒有如此說法的, 只有以英文方式來表達, 如 " he is being obsequious ' or ' he is so sycophantic'. 

2. He puts his legs on my thigh '

Dear Yang Esq.,


Please advised as how to improve or trained up a student, he is studying at Primary 5. Should I focus on his grammar, writing skills, oral, reading, etc… Please comments which one is important and main concern? 

Regards, 

Catherine Wong

 

Learning English involves :

1. Reading . So read good books regularly even if you only understood 1/3 of it , keep at it , don't give up 

2. Speaking . Read aloud to yourself regularly , and play back on your recorder 

3. Listening . Listen regularly to English programmes even if you only understood partly 

4. Writing . try to keep a diary in English or write to pen pals .
