  • To speak properly english is the key to open the door of this prision.
  • Speaking { proper English | English properly } is the key to opening the doors of this prison.
  • Let me explain: 1. When the verb is the subject, it has to be in gerund form ("speaking"). Sometimes using 'to + verb' is allowed, but this is becoming exceedingly rare in spoken English, so it's better to rely on the gerund instead. Of course, this also goes for verbs that are in object form, or indirect object form: SUBJECT: I think that SWIMMING is good. OBJECT: I hate SWIMMING in crowded pools. INDIRECT OBJECT: I gave SWIMMING in crowded pools another chance. 2. "The key to" => this particular phrase also requires the gerund. "They key to solving all of the world's problems", "the key to understanding women". 3. I prefer the plural 'doors' here because you're referring to a metaphorical prison, not an actual one, and because of that the plural feels better. I can't really explain why, so.... just take it from me, I guess? ^^

  • A shitty day.
  • Recently, it is said that the government is planning to tighten the crackdown on indoor smoking.
  • Recently, they have been saying that the government is planning to tighten the crackdown on indoor smoking.
  • "it is said" is correct but "they say" sounds more natural. I changed it to present continuous to match with "recently"

  • I am sorry to say i only read novel written by J.
  • I am sorry to say that I have only read a novel written by J.
  • As for the "one novel" part, you could also use "a" but it depends on what you mean or are trying to say. "a" is for unspecific things as "one" specifically marks that it is just or only one thing. Numbers can also be used for unspecific things. In this case, "one" or "a" as it depends on what you're trying to emphasize

  • Is there anyone who can introduce recommend one or two simple English books for me?
  • If a noun's amount is more than one, then you need to pluralize it. Typically, most nouns take "s" but some do not work that way.

  • Firstly,you are supposed to read English loudly everyday,which can help you develop a good sense of language.
  • Firstly, you are supposed to read English aloud everyday, which can help you develop a good sense of language.
  • If you say "loudly," I imagine you are yelling! But I don't think that that is what you mean. Instead, we would say reading "aloud" or "out loud". This would simply mean that you are actually pronouncing the words instead of reading silently.
