learning from or by....   
Hi dear colleagues,
which is more natural?
Or are there other better expressions? 
Thanks a lot,

Hi Chiara, 
I agree that learning BY experience has a somewhat different meaning than learning FROM experience, but I disagree that it means "something has gone wrong". Someone who has been teaching, or building houses, for example, learns from experience and that is a very positive way to gain skills.
As humans, we learn both by and from experience, so depending on the situation youīre talking about, either one could be a useful expression.

Passive Voice - Board Game   
I think that games are extremely useful for students. That is why I decided to share a board game with you. You can find it at http://www.engames.eu/passive-voice-board-game/.

Hi, gang!! 
A little help, please.  I have an adult learner, late 20s. First language is Portuguese, learning English for immigration purposes.  Lately we īve been working on helping him improve by forcing his mind to think about his own mistakes. 
I īm looking for exercises that do this. For example:  I īve been giving him sentences with various verb tenses done horribly wrong, and asking him to fix them.   Or to properly construct them.   
Such as:   8:00  Started studying   8:30  Time now 
1)  I "have been studying" for 30 minutes. 
2)  I "started" studying 30 minutes "ago"  (he needs help with prepositions of time as well) 
8:00 time now
9:00  eat dinner
I "haven īt eaten" dinner "yet"  
You get the idea.   
I īve been searching our lovely site here for similar exercises, but I īm coming up empty.  Have any of you created such exercises? If so, I īd be tickled if you īd share the link.  
Please and thank you :-)

Impersonal passive voice   
Good morning everyone!
I īm correcting a grammar exercise - impersonal passive voice/ rephrasing:  
The correct answer for "Someone reported that the situation was under control"  is The situation was reported to be under control.
However, a student of mine wrote:  
à  The situation was reported as being under control.
Would you consider this answer correct?
Thanks for you help.

Confusing words   
I īm having problems with the following question:
Keeping files on a computer database is a __________ solution. The words that are confusing to me are new- and now- tech. I googled them but I only see that people use new tech without a hyphen. So I suppose the other two collocations don īt exist?
Can anyone recommend a good textbook about computers and IT?
Thank you!

Dear teachers, Could someone explain A few bites or Few bites And why Thanks alot

21 Mar 2018

...There are 2 previous answers...


I think "a few" often means the same as some (I had some bites, I have a few/some friends etc.)
If you say "few", you are pointing out there are bot many. In thie case of friends it can be negative (you are not happy about that fact), in some other cases (I had few problems) it could be positive. But you point out that the number of .... is low.

Phillip Martin is asking for our votes   
Phillip Martin is a professional artist who allows teachers to use his clip art freely to illustrate their worksheets.  
He is asking for our help and this is a chance to repay him for his generosity.  He has entered an art contest and needs votes from the public in order to win,
He wrote:
"I īm writing to people who for some reason or another have written to me about my art. I appreciate people who appreciate my work.
I īm very excited about this. One of my drawings is in the top 10 in a Columbus Art Competition. To make the final four and be displayed in the city, it needs votes from the public. Please vote for "The Aztec Sun" here http://promowestartexhibit.com/ And then, do me a huge favor and share it with your friends and ask them to vote as well. I really appreciate this and I really need your support."
So, please visit the site  http://promowestartexhibit.com/  and if you like his artwork the best, please vote for it.
