Hi, Jonas, How are you?
Ops! You see! the "are" and "is" verb to be, so they are used with this person:

I am
You are
he is
She is
It is
we are
They are

And the same is for the "to have":

I have
You have
She has
He has
It has
We have
They have

If you need some more explications please, write to me Ok?
Kisses
Bye

I hope you don't mind me correcting your English here - I assume you want the help.

You don't say "I coming from denmark," you would say, "I am from denmark," or "I come from denmark."

U know that another way of describing urself is actually using words such as Canadian, Asian, Americain, but when u say this u are actually implying that u were born there. Also I thought that people in denmark spoke English. Anyways I am from Canada but I am not Canadian (here is a good example). By the way if any of u are good at French pm me because I need some serious help in it.

I don't know where you come from, but saying "I come from Denmark" is not proper English.


Jonas

When stating where you are from, you would say "I'm from Denmark".
Hope this helps.. If you ever need help in the future, don't hesistate to ask me. Smile I'm waiting for my account to be activated. When it is, my username is TuEsPartout.

Hi Katya,

I am not sure why you haven't got any activation email, maybe your ISP or a local installed software delete the email in thought that it was spam ?

Anyway, your account is now activated, so you are very welcome to use it :)

Sincerely
Roberth Andersson

Roberth-

Yes, it's now activated.. It took a few hours for it to do so. Thank you!


Jonas -

Despite the fact that the word "gonna" is understood by Americans, it's not proper English, and very informal. It's a slang term for going to. You would not want to use that when talking to, say, your boss, for example. If you're new to the language, I suggest you at first not take any shortcuts.
