Dear Simon,
thanks a lot for your great help.

But i did not realize the exact use of "Present simple for the future".

Please, explain more.

Hi Mahmoud,

We sometimes use the present simple to describe a future event, usually when the specific time for that event has been decided e.g. on a timetable or schedule.

Here's a typical example:

"The train leaves tomorrow at 6.00."

In the example above, 'leaves' is present simple, but the event will take place in the future.

hi simon
i have a question . what is different between result in and result to .

Dear simon, why your Grammer is good than others?

Because Simon is an excellent English teacher and experienced writer, with decent and respected characteristics, as well as a broader knowledge of the world :-)

I would like to take this great opportunity to thank you Simon for your invaluable help.
Thank again Sir.

Hi Simon and everyone, i got a question about speaking test, if you guys have time please check it: if i got a real exam and a same speaking topic like "movie" here, is it OK to say all of what Simon wrote. If the examiner find out about it, does it affect my score?

Ways to say "Good Luck"
1. Best of luck
2. Wishing you all the best!
3. Wishing you a lots of luck!
4. Cross my finger
5. May the force be with you
6. Break a leg
7. You'll do great
8. I hope everything will be allright
