Present Perfect for Giving News


We use the present perfect when we give news. Something happened recently and for the
person who is listening it is new and so there is the connection between the past and the
present, which there must always be when we use the present perfect.
|____________||||||||||||||||||||||||||______________________|
Past

bought a new car tell your friend about it

Future

Examples
I've bought a new car.
We have decided to get married.
They've moved house.
On the news on the radio or on television, the headlines are given using the present perfect
and then the details are given using the past simple.
Example

The American Congress has passed a law to reduce carbon omissions.


At 3 o'clock this afternoon Congress voted to reduce emissions.
The American Congress has passed a law to reduce carbon omissions.
At 3 o'clock this afternoon Congress voted to reduce emissions.

Examples:

I have split up with my girl /


boyfriend

I have been sacked from my


job for drinking on duty

I have started a course in

Use of make
http://www.myenglishpages.com/site_php_files/vocabul
ary-lesson-make-do.php

Make
FORM

[make + person + verb]

USE
This construction means "to force someone to do something."
Examples:

My teacher made me apologize for what I had said.

Did somebody make you wear that ugly hat?

She made her children do their homework.

MAKE or DO??
Do and Make are two of the most common verbs in English. They are also two of the most
commonly confused verbs in English! There are two main reasons for this:

Many languages have only one of these verbs. For example, in Italian
'fare' translates for both 'do' and 'make'.

Many of the expressions are fixed expressions such as: make the bed, do
homework.

This guide should help you learn the most common uses of both Make and Do in English.

Fixed Expressions with 'Make'


Here are the some of the most common fixed expressions with 'make':

make an offer

make an exception

make a mistake

make peace / war

make love

make money / a profit

make a phone call

make an effort / attempt

make (a) noise

make a suggestion

make a decision

make an excuse

make progress

make arrangements

General Rules for 'Make'


Generally, use 'make' when actually constructing or creating something (in other words,
NOT for activities).
Examples
I made a cup of tea for breakfast.
He made his daughter a rocking horse.
Did you make that wonderful bread?

Expressions with 'Do'


Here are the some of the most common fixed expressions with 'do':

do homework

do the dishes

do housework

do good

do harm

do your best

do a favor

do 50 mph

do business

do your duty

do your hair

do a deed

do penance / time

do right / wrong

do enough

General Rules for 'Do'


Use 'do' when speaking about vague, or indefinite activities. These include speaking in
general using '-thing' words such as something, anything, nothing, etc.
Examples
Are you going to do anything about it?
Let's do something this afternoon.
I didn't do anything wrong!
Use 'do' for activities. This includes any chores or daily tasks.
Examples
Hurry up and do the dishes
Did you do your chores?
I didn't have time to do my homework
Use 'do' with various jobs and activities ending in '-ing' such as do some gardening, do
some thinking, do some painting, etc. This use tends to be informal in nature and can often
be stated in a different manner. For example, 'I did some studying this afternoon' can be
stated 'I studied this afternoon'.
Examples

I did some thinking about your problem.


He did some reading this morning.
She's going to do some resting on vacation.
Once you have studied these general rules and fixed expressions, test your understanding
with this 30 question 'do' or 'make' quiz.

USE OF WOULD FOR PRESENT/FUTURE UNREAL
http://www.grammaring.com//the-modal-would-to-express-unreal-situations
http://www.ecenglish.com/learnenglish/lessons/how-use-would

USE of THERE
There
We use there as a dummy subject with part of the verb be followed by a noun phrase.
(see Clauses, sentences and phrases):
to introduce a new topic:
There is a meeting this evening. It will start at seven.
There has been an accident. I hope no one is hurt.
with numbers or quantities:
There was a lot of rain last night.
There must have been more than five hundred in the audience.
to say where something is:
There used to be a playground at the end of the street.
There are fairies at the bottom of the garden.
I wonder if there will be anyone at home.
with an indefinite pronoun or expressions of quantity and the to-infinitive:
There is nothing to do in the village.
There was plenty to read in the apartment
There was nothing to watch on television.
There is a lot of work to do

If we want to show the subject of the to-infinitive we use for:


There is nothing for the children to do in the village.
There was plenty for us to read in the apartment
There was nothing for them to watch on television.
There is a lot of work for you to do.
with an indefinite pronoun or expressions of quantity and an -ing verb:
There is someone waiting to see you.
There were a lot of people shouting and waving.
We use a singular verb if the noun phrase is singular:
There is a meeting this evening. It will start at seven.
There was a lot of rain last night.
There is someone waiting to see you.
We use a plural verb if the noun phrase is plural:
There are more than twenty people waiting to see you.
There were some biscuits in the cupboard.
There were a lot of people shouting and waving.
