About Expector

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my page! Do you like the above photos I took when I was travelling in China? And, did you enjoy listening to the music on my wall? I hope so.

I'm not really an English teacher, though I often help learners learn English. I love English, which is a fantastic language and now a global one. I like to write and read blogs. I hope you can check out my blogs below - don't forget to leave your comment there and I'll respond.

I love MyEC. It's a great honour to be a moderator here. I'll do my best to help keep MyEC interesting, friendly and decent. I'd like to thank Josef and Tara for offering me such an opportunity to be a member of the excellent team here.

Enjoy!

Hello Dr Expector, how have you been?

May I ask you one question? (I'm sure my page won't get deleted for asking). Why did you deleted AH-TK's blog about Gaza and someone else  pro-Palestine blog named "Mr Obama do you have a heart?". Whereas Sniper venome's blog about ISIS(btw, I'm myself against that terrorist outfit) and Saba's blog "Nawaz sharif, do you have heart?" are still there. I'm really curious to know.

Good day, my friend Expector. I need a big favor from you about a doubt I have about english grammar. Perhaps, you´re not a teacher, but I´m sure you have faced many english grammar situations, so please, share with me your experience. This is the doubt:

 I´ve been working as an english teacher for many years, but I have never traveled abroad and text books do not teach everything.   :(

Right in this moment I´m teaching the use of "some, any, many, much a lot of, a little and a few". The doubts I have are the following:

Someone says to a friend:

"Hey, can you lend me 5 dollars? I need to buy a pencil."

The other guy is out of money, so ... how should he answer?

"Sorry. I don´t have any dollar in my pockets"

"Sorry. I don´t have any dollars in my pockets"

What if he wanted to use "There + be" :

"Sorry. There isn´t any dollar in my pockets"

"Sorry. There aren´t any dollars in my pockets"

I taught my pupils that "any" can be used with either singular or plural nouns:

"There is not any water in the glass"

"There are not any glasses on the table"

But my doubt is when you want to say that there is not even one dollar in your pockets. Should I use "any dollar" or "any dollars"? Are the two answer correct but there is a slight difference between them?

The other question is about using "a lot of" with singular and plural nouns. "a" means "one", so, you can say "I have a computer" or "I have one computer" ...

then is it ok when I say "There are a lot of students in that classroom" ? Should I say: "There are lots of students in that classroom" ? Are they both correct? Is there any difference between them?

I´d really appreciate your help.

Doc, how's your career?  I am sure your patients are keeping you away from EC, hihi!  But you do have an admirable job both as a doctor and an EC moderator.  

As always as before, here I am visiting your page since fate is kind to me.  I will never start the new adventure without passing your page.  

Gladly I return, gladly I work.....Oh, you know how we work on EC.  Remember?
