Hi optimistforum,

There is no problem with your answers, they are all correct.
:wink:

Thank you, TAS, for the sense-checking.

It is much-appreciated. 8)

FYI, these questions are taken from 100 Exercises in English Usage (Book 4, 11-12 years); these are very old Primary books that are written by Hodder Education (and are meant to complement the New First Aid in English). I would heartily recommend them to anyone.

Hi TAS,

I have heard a lot about you from various people- my sister-in-law and ex-colleague. They highly recommend your centre for English. I live in Bishan and am thinking of sending my child to your Yishun centre. I would like to ask some questions first. Do you offer trial lessons and also do you allow parents to look at your materials before joining? I am not sure if this is the right place to ask but hope you can help or if any parents know the details to what I asked, I would really appreciate if you could help too, thank you. :wink:

Hi TAS,

Your free trial includes the materials? So if my ds attends, can he take home the materials too?

Would like to ask if you have any more vacancy for your holiday classes for Love to write at the East? tks!

You may wish to check out The Write Place (www.mexxi3.com). It is run by Ms Liza Tan who has published several good compo books. There is however a long waiting list for the classes.
