Expector can't add comments

Sorry I was absent so long from MyEC, but I can't add comments - I can see your blogs, but 'Cancel' appears if I try to leave a comment. Even Josef has no idea what's wrong with my account. That's driving me up the wall or I was banging my head against a brick wall. 

Yes, I've just signed up with a new account. It seems I can add comments now under the new one - what a relief! You won't recognize how disappointed you are until you can't add comments…

Find and Correct the Mistakes XVII (Upper-Intermediate)

My friends, I have explained almost all I could. I will go on posting the explanatory blogs if somebody reads them. I have added some other constructions, but the idea is for you to lean something new. Again, you should concentrate on the nonfinite forms, but there are also other mistakes.

A Drama Queen Sister

Pt1: Birthday

The package didn't arrive yet. I had no heart to tell him happy birthday with no prize. So I left home and spend times with my friends instead. No worries about my brother, he had his own world, which was not preserved for me.

"I have a request!" I said

"what is it?" He answered with his eyes on the book.

The Beggar and the Poor Old Lady (First part)

One cold winter night, there was a beggar, who was busy searching for her food in the garbage bin, it was the day after Christmas’ Eve, and she was positive that she will feel the same festivity. She knew that rich people couldn’t eat all they had prepared and will end up throwing some delectable cuisines to her filthy dining bin.

After an hour searching she stopped and sat, there was no food…

The Wisest King’s Verdict

One day two women who were prostitutes came to their wise king. As they stood before him, one of the women said, “My master, this woman and I live in the same house.

They stood beside the seven beautiful cows on the bank of the Nile.  The seven thin and ugly cows ate the seven beautiful fat cows. Then the king woke up. The king slept again and dreamed a second…

More Explanations: the Infinitive or the Subordinate Clause?

Well, my friends and learners, as usual I’d like to explain some sentences from my tests for you to gain some knowledge. Today, I will explain some infinitive constructions as you seem to have a lot of doubts about using them.

Here are my incorrect sentences from my tests.
