LifeDeath wrote:Hi everybody! My name is Anton and I'm from Novosibirsk(Russia). My English is very bad and I think it'll make you laugh:) I prepared a few questions I wanted to ask:
LifeDeath wrote:1. I listened to the song "It Must Have Been Love" and there was a line: "From the moment we touched till the time had run out". Is there a simple way to explain me why they used the simple past in the first part and past perfect in the second? I think the correct way to say is: "From the moment we had touched till the time ran out".
LifeDeath wrote:2. I had an argument with my friend about using "will" after "if". In my english courses I have been learnt that it's incorrect, but in a Russian forum about English there was a man who proved that it's possible to say: "think about army if it will help you study better" because it is an advice. Is it true?
LifeDeath wrote:3.I heard a phrase from "Home Alone". It was "what else can we be forgetting?". What is it? Is there a rule about using Be+Ving? Can I say, for example: "I don't wanna be listening to you right now"(I don't want to listen to you right now)?
LifeDeath wrote:Could anybody answer my another question of mine?
Are there "future perfect continuous passive voice" and "perfect continuous future in the past passive voice"? For example: "The iphones will have been being sent for two hours already before you come" and "...the stories should not have been being forgotten...".

I know in the songs sometimes it's possible to express the thoughts not as the books taught you. So, could you show me real mistakes, things which won't be understood by the English speakers?
You can use "do" here, but it changes the meaning to an emphatic one. For example, if someone who I loved said "You don't love me!", I would contradict them by saying "I do love you!"LifeDeath wrote:1. Can I add "do" in present simle tenses? For example: "I do love you", "He does study in university", "I do always remember dressing up before important meeting". Does adding of "do" change the sense of the sentence?
No, you can't use "don't" there. "Do/does" and "don't/doesn't" are auxiliaries which must always be followed by the base form of the verb.2.In past simple questions, can I use "do" instead of "did" but with changing the verbe in past form?
For example: "Why don't I used it?" instead of "Why didn't I use it" or "Does she forgot her speech?" instead of "Did she forget her speech?" Is it possible to say?
And please, correct the mistakes I've done made writing this

LifeDeath wrote:1. Can I say "I'm gonna have my problem done" if I mean "i'm gonna solve my problem"?
LifeDeath wrote:2. What's the difference between "manner" and "way"? For example: "It's a good way to do it better" and "It's a good manner to do it better" is there a difference?
LifeDeath wrote:3. What's the difference between "always" and "forever"?
LifeDeath wrote:4. What's the difference between "let" and "allow"?
LifeDeath wrote:5. The Queen song "Don't Stop Me Now" starts with the lyrics "Tonight i'm gonna have myself a real good time"
What is it "have myself"? My friend said it's a bad thing and we can't say it that way.
