Topic: Could do with + ?
Posted: Sunday, March 18, 2018 6:02:28 PM
Hello everyone!
Please, could you help me?
There is an expression : could do with something.
I could do with a cup of coffee.
My city could do better road and transport.
He could do with a new T-shirt.

But how about the next sentences?

I could do with getting up early.
He could do with working harder.
She could do with reading a lot.
We could do with jogging in the mornings.

Can I say like this?

Hello everyone!
Please, if you can,help me out.
I have come across the next sentence from Panda Kung Fu : said to be so sharp you can cut yourself just looking.
So my question is : can I use *said to* instead of *people say* or *one say*. I will give an example what I want to say.
Said to he was a doctor. ( here I want to say : some people say that he is a doctor)
Said to the weather was fine. ( some people say that the weather is fine).
Thank you in advance
Topic: Verursachen vs ursachen

Hello everyone!!
Would you so kind as to help me?
A friend of mind has shared a photo where you can read the next : Schon gut, dass Neid keinen Durchfall verursucht, ....
I have asked a friend : does *versuchen* means *something causes something*?
The friend has answered: *ursachen* means that.
But when I asked about the difference between these 2 verbs, she coulndt answer me.
Thank you all of you in advance.
