Hi TAS

Could you advise when we should use "will" and "shall"? Thank you.

Hi,
TAS seems to offer lots of advice on this forum. However when keen to sign up my dd, no one seems to pick up calls! When managed to get through, follow up on customer service is very disappointing and offer given is not fulfilled... :frustrated: Does anyone has such experience?? My dd needs help!!!

TAS, can you advise on teachers' credentials in your centre?

Hmm... does that increase the frequency of relief/temp teachers then?

Hi JKKiasu,

The teachers are trained by the boss. They are trained to teach in a certain methodology. When I wanted to sign my child up, it was also difficult to contact them as they have certain timings that they are off or the line is engaged. But after a few tries, i managed to get them and my questions were also answered well. From my experience of calling some other renowned centres, it is the same. Some never have their lines free.

You could try out their trial and see whether it suits your child.

TAS has a book on grammar and synthesis rules that I find very useful. They addressed the WILL/SHALL issue in it. Not sure if they sell it to non TAS students but TAS students have that book. It is a white book. I am not at home so I cant remember what was the rule they mentioned about this but I know I saw it in one of the pages of the book. If you have the book, you can refer to it.
