Hi dear trainers!
Some lessons have a link in the bottom to a proper test but not the all. Sometimes it's not so easy to compare a lesson with a test. Maybe I just don't know where to search, could you suggest something?

Hi Torsten,

I have a doubt,can you please clear that, In the following sentences where we have to use "are" and "were".

1.They [u]are [/u]going to spend the holiday again in Majorca
2.They were going to spend the holiday again in Majorca.

Hi Sribabu,
I'm not Torsten, but I am going to make an attempt to clear your issue.

1. We use 'are going to' to make a future sense in the present. For example, I'm going to finish my explanation to you.
2. We use 'was/were going to' to make a future sense in the past. For example, I was going to explain you about 'are/were' a minute ago.

Hope it was helpful for you.
Best regards, Roman

Hi, Torsten

"Andrew just couldn't handle it"
Does the sentence mean that he just couldn't believe it?

Thanks in advance

Hi Acar,

'Shall' and 'will' are often interchangeable, and you can use 'will' in your sentence without any change of meaning.

Hi Beeesnees,

In this story I found the expression “she half expected”, what does it means?

The sentences is:

As Daisy was casually opening the envelope she half expected to have won a set of hairbrushes or a bottle of champagne.

I will appreciate your help.

Regards.

Hi Geo777,

I think this explanation can help you with your question (I found it in www.oxfordadvancedlearnersdictuinary.com).

I've got to go. I can't handle it any more (= deal with a difficult situation).

Cheers.

She expected to find... would indicate that she regarded it as very likely to happen

She half-expected to find... indicates that she regarded it as a possibility and would not be completely surprised, but it is less probable than the above expression.

You can use shall or will. There's very little difference. They both emphasise the intention to carry out this action.
