Dear colleagues, 
there is something we would like to share with all of you. 

It is the project called Inner Giant, dedicated to anti-bullying in all its forms (school, work, family). Our colleague Frank Letras (franknbea) started it in our little eslprintables teacher ´s cafe, and soon enough, about 40 people, teachers, educators and artists, gathered from all over the world to create an ebook, the proceeds of which will go to an anti-bullying charity. 

Most of the contributors are from eslprintables. We wrote stories (inspired by real events and personal experiences), poems, songs, essays, worksheets, project ideas, legacy messages, made illustrations and art photos... All aimed at inspiring people to talk about the problem, to listen, and to do something about it - to find their own inner giant or help others find theirs. We would all like to thank Victor for his support, and invite you to share this post, the news about this project, to maybe get the e-book for yourself. If you get the book, please do share a positive review on the purchase site. Thank you to all the wonderful people who selflessly shared their talent and free time to realize this project, as well as to all of you who choose to support our efforts. 

(also available on local amazon sites in the UK, Canada, etc.)

Doubt on some and any - please help me   
Hello, I am confused...
Which is the correct question???
- Would you like any money?
- Would you loke some money?
--- In my opinion, when I use would together with like, it classifies an offer, so ... I should use some, but...

Both are correct, but their meanings aren ´t quite the same.

In questions, the difference between "some" and "any" is in whether you expect a positive or negative answer.

Would you like some money?      This anticipates a positive answer.
Would you like any money?         This anticipates a negative answer, or the asker doesn´t know what to expect.
Do we have (some) pickles?   anticipates a positive answer.
Do we have any pickles?   anticipates a negative answer.
Can I get you something to drink?    (probably yes)
Can I get you anything to drink?       (probably no)
Oh, and I would like some money, please.

How does he look like?   
I am a little bit confused about the use of this question, I don´t know if it is grammatically correct, or if it is better to say "What does he look like?". Please can you tell me which one is correct?

21 May 2015


"What does he look like?"  is definitely the right option.
Although, one could say:
"It is amazing how he looks like his father!"
, but that ´s a different story, I guess!

... for almost everything or anything?   
Dear colleagues,
 a student has written: everyone uses technology for almost everything
I have the feeling he should have written "for almost anything" instead.  What do you think?
Thank you!!

Thanks Bruce for the examples. If we elaborate on them, as in: 

 1. At that store you can buy everything you need, but not anything. 
2. At that store you can buy anything you need, but not everything. 

 Do we get: 
1. All the things you now need can be found in that store. Its variety of products, however, is limited. 
2. The range of goods in that shop is unlimited. However, you can ´t possibly afford to buy all of them.
