The Grammar Test to Refresh Your Memory

My friends, I'd like you to recall Danny's and my lessons and to correct the mistakes again. Your task is the same as in "Find and correct the mistakes". For those who are newbies or don't remember, I will explain once again.

There may be a few mistakes in each sentence. You should find and correct them all without changing the vocabulary. It is a grammar test. As usual, I will lead you explaining your mistakes.

Are you ready?

Here is your task:

  1. Were you there ever or did you see it by the TV?
  2. He stopped looking around and to see was he followed.
  3. There was no time enough so that I make up my mind.
  4. I didn’t notice his going out of the party and started to ask the questions where was he.
  5. He didn’t remember to call up her and again he called.
  6. Women prefer to accompany with family members where one man is must.
  7. Don’t forget shutting the windows when you will leave.
  8. She asked what would we do if we couldn’t check to any hotel.
  9. I thought it going to never end.
  10. Why don’t again to check your English level?

The deadline is August 21.

Have a great time!

7 is not bad

Comment by Onee-chan on Sunday
7) Woman prefer being accompanied by family members and one man is a must. (I have no idea to change 'where') :D
Comment by Danny Clark on Sunday

Onee, 7 is correct but 3 is not

Comment by Onee-chan on Sunday
7) Don't forget to shut/ close the windows when you leave / you're leaving.

3) There was not enough time to make up mind.
Comment by Danny Clark on Sunday

Dear Onee, what about your desire not to dry out your brain? LOL!

Yes, both are right, but HOTEL (singular) sounds better

Comment by Onee-chan on Sunday
10) Why not to check your English level again?

8) She asked what we would do if we were not able to check into any hotels.

Dear Bet, we will take it into account

Comment by Danny Clark on Sunday

Dear Bet, Tanya is busy today, but let me try to answer. I think I have got your questions. If I haven't just correct me, OK?

1. We don't say "in my thinking". We can say "In my opinion," or "It is my understanding that". Here are a few examples:

In my opinion, some learners are not always attentive.

It is my understanding that some learners are not always attentive.

2. The sentence "I would like to know what do you prefer" is wrong. It is not a question and there shouldn't be any inversion. We invert a verb if we ask a direct question.

Do you prefer tea to coffee?

But if we want to say the same in the reported speech or in a subordinate clause (like in your example), there must be the direct word order:

She asked if I prefer tea to coffee.

I would like to know whether you prefer tea to coffee.

Clear?
