Help Each Other with English • Re: Can you give me a feedback?

Hi Pearly. That's a good email. Just a few corrections here:

How are you doing? I hope you have are having a good time.
I’m very proud of myself because i stopped smoking. Can you really imagine that? I used to smoke almost one box packet per day. I wanted to stop doing stop this bad habit because it’s very expensive. Moreover it was bad for my health. I coughed a lot and felt sick. Not to mention that my tooth teeth started to turn yellow. Remember the day when we tried our first cigarette at Daniel's party? It was the most disgusting thing ever, but the sad thing is that we couldn’t stop doing it and got addicted. I never told my mum but she realized it when she felt smelled the smoke on my favourite sweater. I was so ashamed. Since i stopped smoking, which wasn’t easy because i had withdrawal symptoms, I feel so much better. I don’t feel tiredness as before and my skin is healthier too. People say i look good and i didn’t don't smell bad anymore.
You should try to stop smoking too. I know it’s hard but you don’t need to start with not smoking at all; just try to smoke less every month. I bet that you will feel the change in your health fast.

Two more things:
1) Always use capital I (not i) for the pronoun - People say I look good and I don't ...
2) ... do an exam or take an exam (not 'make')

Good luck!

Grammar Help • Re: How many times

#2 is correct.

In this case, 'have you been shopping?' would be interpreted not as the present perfect continuous form of the verb 'to shop' but simply as the suppletive present perfect simple of the verb 'go' + 'shopping' (gerund). (Cf. I've been to France.)

None.

(1a) What time do the morning and afternoon shifts start?
(1b) What times do the morning and afternoon shifts start?

(2a) What time are your next two job interviews?
(2b) What times are your next two job interviews?

"time" can be both countable and uncountable. I am not sure which form works in my examples. Please help me. Thank you very much.
