In Vietnam, we do not use any textbooks from englishtips.org to teach students. The Vietnamese Ministry of education and training has composed our own curriculum, so we have our own textbooks from grade 3 to grade 12. For my reference, I �d like to know which English books of your own country ( where English is the foreign language ) are used to teach students from grade 3 to grade 12. If possible, can you send me the English books of your own country? Many thanks.

Hello I´m Brazilian and I am doubts with the word "litter"... littering and improves residents´quality of life.
with "ing"   and " Ed"
Individuals are much more likely to dispose of waste in a " littered" environment.A clean community, however, discourages  littering and improves residents´quality of life.
What are these mean? What´s the difference? thanks

Hi, Laurinete,

First, when you have your own question, you shouldn �t "reply" to another person �s post. Instead, you should go to the bottom of the forum and click on Start New Topic. Then the thread will be your own.

Now for your answers:
The "-ing" form is, in this case, a verbal noun, referring to the process (as a noun)
Speaking is difficult in a foreign language.
Running is good exercise.
The "-ed" form is the past participle, in this case, being used as an adjective.
We have a saying in English, "Don �t cry over spilled milk" ("spilt" in British English).
I have trouble walking because of a pulled muscle in my back.
No one likes to see littered streets in their city.
