Hello Everyone,

Can someone please assist:

Having experience with....
Having experience in....
Having experience of.....

How does one effectively explain the difference in the sentences above without doing more harm than good to an english student?

Thanks in advance.
Topic: I look forward to hearing from you vs I am looking forward to hearing from you

Hello,

What exactly is the difference between "I look forward to hearing from you" and " I am looking forward to hearing from you"?
Is it a case of formality with the simple present tense version being more formal/ distant than the continuous one?

Regards
Phumla
Topic: The correct pronounciation of "THE"
Posted: Monday, August 8, 2011 12:53:52 PM
Please help shed some light! I sometimnes hear "The" pronounced as "Thee" or as "Ther" depending on the succeeding noun. (The usage of "Thee" being the same as that of "an" e.g.  an apple/"Thee" apple. And the usage of "Ther" being the same as that of "a" e.g. a car/"Ther" car). But  I also often hear "Thee" being used regardless of the noun that follows. How exactly is "The" meant to be pronounced? Is there a rule?
Thanks in advance.
