Topic: Correct sentence
Posted: Friday, June 29, 2018 1:44:53 AM
It seems to me I used incorrect words.

I think the correct ones are "World Cup".

There's also "the world championship" in a Longman dictionary. It's written in lower case letters.

Is "the world championship" alternative to (FIFA) World Cup (2018)?

I think the best question is -> Which country do you support in this World Cup?

Do you agree?

Hi ;)

We all know that football is underway. I'd like to ask my friend one of the following questions.

Who do you support at this World Championship?
Which country do you support in this World Championship?
What country do you support on this World Championship?

Would you ask like that? Which one is correct, please? :)

Hi ;)

I would like to know which sentences are correct. Especially, the bold parts. Would you help me, please? I play against some players in a video game. I'd like to send one of the following sentences to my friends.

1. I can't never decide who to attack first.
2. I can't never decide who attack first.
3. I can't never decide to who attack first.

4. I'm never sure who to fight with first.
5. I'm never sure who to fight against first.
6. I'm never sure who to fight first.
7. I'm never sure with who to fight first.
8. I'm never sure against who to fight first.

I see now :)

Just to be sure -> You could try to persuade Anna to help you, but I know already it will be in vain.

I think you only forgot to add "in", right?

Thank you for your hearty welcome, hedy. Have a good day ;)

It is indeed the idiom I was looking for. Thank you both ;)

Hi ;)

Is the use of "ahead" and "vain" correct, please?

You could persuade Anna to help you, but I know ahead that will be vain.

As an alternative, I would use "beforhand" or "in advance" instead of it.

Your sentence is undoubtedly much better. I like it a lot ;)

Hi ;)

Would you tell me which sentence is correct, please? I have difficulty deciding which words to use.

Even though all the weaker players are defeated, I firmly believe we will win over the rest.
Even though all the weaker players are defeated, I firmly believe we will win against the rest.

Although all the weaker players are defeated, I firmly believe we will win over the rest.
Although all the weaker players are defeated, I firmly believe we will win against the rest.

I used "the" because we (my friends) know our opponents (in a video game). Is it optional to use it?

Thank you, Drag0nspeaker ;)

If that happened I would definitely go for the first one ("Oh my god! Are you OK?").

Hi ;)

Do these sentences sound right, please? Especially the bold parts.

What a pity that I missed your party!
What a shame that I had to go away just when your party started.
