Questions like "How do I use the present tense?" or "What's the difference between' make' and 'do'?" are not helpful, because answering them would take thousands of words.
Use Google to research the answer yourself, then find interesting sentences and post any you don't understand.
Also, when posting in italki's questions/answers section, please provide context! Where did you see the sentence? Give us a paragraph to see!
I know other people have posted about this before, but it's worth bringing up from time to time. PLEASE STOP ASKING VERY GENERAL GRAMMAR QUESTIONS! And please, please PLEASE: give us some example sentences to work with! We don't understand decontextualised language as well as you might think!
Thank you! :)
Can you give me an example of a "helpful" question?
Hi, Alan. I totally agree with you. We should ask our questions with example sentences. This is great idea sharing our friends application words and expressions and also, it makes easier to study grammar.
