Practice the conversation; study the vocabulary; then discuss the questions with a friend in English.

[Note: These lessons were written for a Chinese newspaper. If you're not Chinese, you can also think of some typical problems that speakers of your language have with English.]

Questions:
1. According to Mark, what effect does poor grammar have on listeners?
2. Make some sentences with word pairs like "bored/boring" or "excited/exciting" used correctly.
3. When can you never use "ever"? Give examples of proper uses.
