Lesson 9
Dear Friend,

This is your email English lesson number 9 -- in other words, you started your English course about three weeks ago. How did you like it so far? Today, you''ll learn how to negate sentences in the simple present. Here are some examples: I speak English but I don''t speak Latin. My friend speaks English but he doesn''t speak Latin. That''s simple, isn''t it? If you want to negate a sentence in the simple present, you use the help verb "don''t" or "doesn''t". As usual, you can get more information about this grammar issue from Sunny here. Sunny even used different colours to highlight the different parts of speech for you. (For example, the personal pronouns are in orange, the help verb is green, and the infinitive is blue.) Sounds complicated with so many grammar explanations but it''s quite simple if you start practising it.

Of course Sue Darville is waiting for you today too. This time she is going to tell you something about the difference between listen and hear. Here are some additional sentences that show you how to use both verbs: Please listen to me, I''d like to tell you an interesting story. If you want to learn English, you should listen to English language radio and audio books every single day. Did you hear the news, our boss quit his job! Last week I heard somebody on the radio say that the price of oil will rise even higher. One of the most effective ways of learning the difference between ''listen to and hear'' is taking the listen to vs. hear test. As you can see, many English learners want to know how to distinguish between both verbs and that''s why they turn to our forum where they get the answers to their questions.

Dear Friend, when are you going to log on to the forum? I really like to get help you improve your English so you can achieve your goals. Please stay tuned for your email lesson number 10.
