here is a additional remark:
i must have told you----i generally,as a assumption, such as, Are you sure not to join this play, I must have told you how fun it would be.)
If you want to experss 'i strongly know that i said it to you', you could say 'I am sure I have told you before'
hi, tanya,i have a question about your answer to HUSEYIN
i should have told you means 'I had to tell but I didn't', I got it.
but I think there is another meaning below, don't you think it's right?
In general speaking, without any accident,I have told you.
Dear Xuan! Here is the text of your comment and my corrections.
Thank you for your comment and your help,Tanya.I have an English exam next month.Actually,I feel very disappoint because I have failed last time.But I don't think passing the exam is the reason of learning English.The language is a way to know the other countries' culture.So I hope I can having a good command of a foreign language.I am lenrning some new words lately.But I found that it is hard to remember the words and all the meaning of them.I can't use the phrase well,either.Please help me.Beside,please give me a hand to correct my mistake about this comment ,as the grammar,misprint...Finally,I am so happy to have a friend，a teacher like you!o(∩_∩)o...Thank you ,Tanya.
THANK YOU for answering my previous queries.
hope you will also help me this time.
This time the confusion is regarding Present Progressive Tense.
1. In a book* a example has given for Future action using Present Progressive form
"I am seeing Larry on Saturday". why Present Simple has not used, as it is TIMETABLED (Saturday). like "i see Larry on Saturday"?
2. What exactly 'Single Word' do in tenses? it is confusing me because a website mentioned 'tomorrow' and 'next...' as SINGLE WORD of Present Progressive Tense but the same website has given example e.g "What day is it tomorrow?" and a book* given example "Are you on duty next weekend?" for Present Simple Tense (for future action)

I am amazed that you are willing to help us with our English for free. And I love the way you explain things. It's easy to understand your explanation. I have a problem understanding Forms of Other. In my grammar book it says that:
* Form of other are used as either adjectives or pronouns
* The meaning of another : one more in addition to the one (s) already mentioned.
* The meaning of other / others (without the) : several more in addition to the one (s) already mentioned.
* The meaning of the other (s): all that remain from a given number; the rest of a specific group.
I don't really understand how to use them. I am a bit confused. Would you explained to me more about this?
What kind of form of other do we use in these sentences:
1. Look at your hand. You have five fingers. One is your thumb. .................. is your index finger. ..............one is your middle finger. ................finger is your ring finger. And ................finger (the last of the five) is your little finger.
Would you explain to me when do we use other, others, the other, and the others.
Thank you so much for your help.
