Topic: present tenses mistake
Posted: Friday, September 7, 2018 4:56:03 PM
I made a mistake in a grammar exercise. The problem is our teacher told us to explain why our answers are wrong and write it in our notebooks. And I have no idea how to do this.

The sentence is:

Dan ..... in the living room while we redecorate his bedroom.

There are ABCD answers and I chose 'sleeps'. The answer key says the right answer is 'is sleeping'. But why? And if it is because the action is temporary, why is 'redecorate' in Present Simple?
Topic: Looking for appropriate word
Posted: Sunday, November 13, 2016 7:16:47 AM
I am writing an essay about my national heroine and I have a problem with one word, you know whatchamacallit. How to call somebody who we admire? Somebody like for example mother, father, saint or famous volunteer. When we want to be just like them and follow them.
In Polish we call this person "autorytet" and lots of dictionaries translates it into "authority" but I am not sure. The Free Dictionary describes this word as a power, not just influence.
