please advise. Tx


Hi Herbie,

QN1:

For 'No sooner', it must be followed by 'than' and
there is no comma in the sentence.

'No sooner' is used to compare 2 instances, hence 'than' is used.

Answer should be:

No sooner had the boy taken some money from the drawer
than his mother walked in.

If 'scarely' is used, it would go with 'when'

Example:

The boy had scarcely taken some money from
the drawer when his mother walked in.

QN2:

For the second question, the answer is 'I'

- 'I' is used when it is used as a subject- the person does
the action

Eg:

My father and I went running. ('I' - doing the action of running)

-'me' is used when it is used as an object- the person does
not do the action

Eg:

My father brought my brother and me to the park('me' receives
the action of the father's bringing and does not do the action of 'bringing' himself)

Hi TAS,

If my child is already at your centre, do we need to pre-order? Or would
you set aside some books for us to get?

It is suitable for high ability Pri 1 and 2s and for Pri 3 all the way to Pri 6.
For the first round, we may not be printing that many books so you
can pre-order with us first if you are want to get it within these
few weeks. :wink:

TAS


Hi TAS,

Ok thanks, I have emailed you my order. We can pick it from any of your branches right? :D
