    I know it can be tough teaching shy students, I have a lot of them too. One of my students was so quiet and seemed to have no interests. But it is important to not give up on shy students. Keep trying new methods to see if she reacts well to any. Give her a lot of encouragement. Try to adapt any materials to suit her hobbies.

  • From Citykidsenglish, Sat, 5 Apr 2014 12:03 pm in Teaching small classes,

    I always find that if my students are having fun then I have fun too. Try looking for new fun toys that you can use in the lesson. They don't have to be expensive. I have found some really good toys in the 100 yen shop. 

  • From Expat13, Mon, 14 Oct 2013 1:46 am in Omission of the

    I believe, in this case, the writer of this sentence is writing how we speak, not with proper grammar. When I read the phrase, it sounds hypothetical (if/possibility). There is no need for a definite article since there is the 'possibility' for any and all employees and any and all employers to apply the theory.

  • From Scotade, Tue, 10 Sep 2013 2:00 pm in Mixed conditional

    I think the answer to this is yes!

  • From Scotade, Tue, 10 Sep 2013 1:56 pm in "it means giving the recording to head office to look at"

    "....giving the recording to head office" is the object of the clause, if a verb is used as an object (or subject) it must be in the -ing form.

  • From Scotade, Tue, 10 Sep 2013 1:50 pm in Nothing to eat

    I reckon it's because after a preposition (in this case "for") verbs must be in -ing form (in this case "being"). Also the clause you used after "for" has no object, s nothino it uses a grammatical object "there".

  • From Shannon@HowToTeachEnglishGrammar.com, Tue, 11 Jun 2013 3:02 pm in When to ask past simple or present perfect questions?

    The past simple tense ("Did you try it on?") is used for finished actions which are not important now - they don't directly affect the present.
