Ask @EnglishConsulting:

How do I get my guy crush to like me bk? At first I never noticed him but realised he stares at me alot but now he has stop we never speak.. but recently we started talking but im scared if he lost interest in my cuz now im starting to like him.. I thought when guys stare it means they like u? Help?

Sorry, I'm no Amy Dickinson (though she's from a town close to where I live), so I wouldn't have a clue about how to help you. I am a guy, however, and yes, we often stare at girls--er, women we like, but sometimes we stare just because we're too stupid to know anything else to do.

Yes sir please teach how to improve it

I'm sorry, but there's really not just one way to improve your English that works for everyone in all situations; that's why I wanted to know the reasons you wanted to improve and what purposes you intended to use the language. For example, in your previous question you wrote that one reason you wanted to improve your English was "someday If ever I want to go abroad I can easily communicate to other people." O.K., for that purpose I would say try to communicate in English, both in speaking and in writing, whenever possible to anyone you meet in person who speaks English, and of course you can try to communicate with English speakers online also. Don't worry about making mistakes or knowing all the right words; in most cases, English speakers will still be able to understand you and they may even help you by correcting your mistakes. You can also watch and listen to native of speakers of English communicating with each other on video, either on TV, in movies or online video. Try to understand as much as you can; it will be difficult, but don't get discouraged. What you understand, you should be able to imitate to help you communicate.
But I'm sorry, I still don't entirely understand the other purpose you gave: "I'm currently looking for a job sir so I want it to use for communication purpose." I wrote in my last reply, "you say you're 'looking for a job,' so do you want to improve your English because you think that will help you **get** a job? Or, because you also write, 'I want it to use for communication purpose,' are you thinking that improving your English will help you communicate **on** the job, i.e., **after** you get one?" If you could still answer these questions of mine, I'll try to help you with this purpose also.
My best wishes for your success in improving your English.

No,thanks, I believe you. We can to communicate? Do you have account in any social network?

I'm currently looking for a job sir so I want it to use for communication purpose and also someday If ever I want to go abroad I can easily communicate to other people :)

O.K., I understand the second purpose you give for wanting to improve your English, i.e., to help you if you travel to another country where English is spoken. But I'm not sure I understand your first purpose; that is, you say you're "looking for a job," so do you want to improve your English because you think that will help you **get** a job? Or, because you also write, "I want it to use for communication purpose," are you thinking that improving your English will help you communicate **on** the job, i.e., **after** you get one?

I am Filipino SIR and yes sir I'm talking about english

O.K., thank you for telling me that. Now, let me ask you some more things: how do you use English and why do you want to improve? That is, do you want to improve your speaking ability so that you can communicate better with English speakers? Do you need to use English at school or at work? Please let me know and I'll try to give you good suggestions based on your needs.

Sorry that i nerves you, but you are the one who can help me in this to tuesday, i have only to do this 1 english exam and i am positive in every subject) so please help meeee you are the teacher of the teachers

Rajana
Vielen Dank, Rajana. I would be glad to try to help you, but I have some questions first. In your first message, you wrote that you need to "write my text," but then you refer to a "test" on Tuesday; also in, this message I'm replying to here, you mention "1 english exam." So will you need to write those two passages, i.e., about a partner and where you have lived, during the period of your exam/test on Tuesday or do you have to bring the two completed written passages with you *before* you do Tuesday's test/exam?
Also, in your message about the first question you say must "use this words in this text: (looks, likes, dislikes, hobbys, education, character, social status, job...)." O.K., what you have in the parentheses look more like topics than specific English words you must use; were you give a list of English vocabulary items that relate to these topics?
Similarly, for the second question you include the direction "How are the people, the food, the shops, transportation, culture, public, art, politics?" So once again I'm assuming these are the general aspects of the topic you must write about, and once more I'm curious if you've been given vocabulary to help you write about these things.
Please contact me at my tutoring site http://mccorduck.cc/chegg which is where I usually help students with writing. Ich spreche ein bisschen Deutsch, so I hope I'll be able to give you the help you need.

I'm Marie, aren't I or I'm Marie, am not I or I'm Marie, amn't I? What is correct!?

Solutions
This is a good question. For speakers of most varieties of English, "I'm Marie, aren't I?" would be most common and considered "correct" despite the irregular use of "are" in the so-called tag question (normally, the auxiliary verb in the tag question is the same as in the main clause; see https://blabmate.com/article/which_has_the_correct_tag_question_ahmed_is_clever_isnt_it_or_ahmed_is_clever_dont_you/96/).
"I'm Marie, am I not?", where not only is "am" used but also, again contrary to pattern, the negative particle "not" is not contracted with the auxiliary but is placed *after* the pronoun subject of the tag question, is possible but it is used in limited contexts, especially in very formal or very emphatic usage.
And the tag in "I'm Marie, amn't I?" is heard occasionally, but it appears to be limited to only certain regional dialects of English even though it is "regularly" formed, i.e., with the auxiliary "am" contracted with "not" followed by the subject "I." Again, far more English speakers would use "aren't I" in this case (or even the non-standard "ain't I").

follback me please... oh yeah, can i ask something with you?? can you give me some tips for learning english very fast in my break time without stress?? thanks before 😄

Dian Rizqi
I wish I could give you some tips for "stress-free learning," but that would be hard for me to do without knowing you personally and thus being aware of what kinds of things cause you stress. Simply by the fact that you mention wanting to learn English during your "break time" and bringing up stress in the first place, I can conclude--but again I can't be sure--that (1) you have an otherwise stressful job and/or life situation the only relief from which may be your "break time" and (2) learning English itself may be stressful for you, for whatever reasons.
So again, without knowing more about you and your learning style and goals and your life situation, it would be difficult for me to give you any kinds of tips that might actually help you, sorry.

Hello i want to ask which i have to write studying english or studing english and why thank you

Hi, thanks for asking me. You always write "studying English" (notice also that "English" is always written with a capital "E") because you don't change the "y" of words that end in that letter when adding "ing."
Maybe what's confusing you is that when you add other endings to words ending in "y" the "y" changes to "i," for example "studies," "studied" and "studier" (i.e., someone who studies). Other examples are "prettier" and "prettiest" from "pretty."

Yes, I mean by V3 = past participle.

Mima w
O.K., thank you. Then returning to your original question, the difference between "being + V3" and "been + V3" is, superficially, the presence in the former of the "-ing" form of the verb "be" and in the latter of the past participle--or V3--form of "be." And of course the larger question is about, as you stated it, "[w]hen [do] we use each one."
They key is that both of these constructions will occur only with the use of the passive voice, whose essential formula is "be + V3." I assume you're aware of the distinction in English between the active voice and the passive voice; put simply, the active is S V O, e.g. "A hacker stole this information" where the active, transitive verb "stole" has as its subject "a hacker" and the noun phrase "this information" is the (direct) object of the active verb "stole," whereas the passive is S[o] be + V3 (by [s]), which just means that the object in the active becomes the subject of the passive, the verb phrase of the passive is a form of "be" plus the V3 form of the whatever the verb is, and then the subject of the active is now expressed after the preposition "by" or sometimes the entire "by"-phrase is omitted.Thus, the passive equivalent of "A hacker stole this information" is "This information was stolen by a hacker" or just "This information was stolen."
(And I'm just making a guess: I'd bet that in whatever system of English grammar you're studying, the base form of a verb is "V1" and the simple past tense is "V2." If so, then note that the irregular English verb "steal" has the V1 form "steal," the V2 form "stole" and the V3 "stolen.")
Now getting back to "being + V3" and "been + V3," as I said above these will always signal the passive voice, and the difference is just arises from the principle aspect of the verb. Without getting into too much detail because of course that's not my style, "being + V3" is used in a progressive (also known as "continuous") aspect, e.g., "The information is being stolen," the present progressive passive, or "The information was being stolen," the past progressive passive, whereas "been + V3" occurs with the perfect aspect, e.g., "The information has been stolen," present perfect passive, or "The information had been stolen," past perfect passive.
I hope this helps. And darn, I would LOVE to talk more about the progressive and perfect aspects, but ask.fm just isn't giving me enough space here. ;-)

I'm not sure exactly what all your other sentences mean, but I do like the concept of "idolizing the generous"; I sure wish more people would so honor and want to emulate others who give so much.
