This site is pretty neat! It gives us something to do during our english period. I think you should make some interesting and FUN grammer games for teenagers like me to be able to play. It would make this site really fun to go to. Thanks for listening!

Kathy Ylöstalo 11/3/99 4:04:46 AM
Hello! I am currently giving private English grammar tutoring to some University students in Oulu, Finland, and I have run into a question, which I am not sure how to answer. We were just discussing subjects and objects, and one of my textbooks stated that every simple sentence has both a subject and an object. If this is true, then where is the object in the sentence: "Jimmy walks regularly." Can the object of a sentence also be the object of the preposition? Thank you for your help!! Sincerely, Kathy Ylöstalo

I teach at a high school in upstate New York, and I'm finding your website to be indispensible. All of our vocabulary work, at least for the seniors, is done here; and the grammar pages certainly inspire me to achieve the impossible with these students. I am just starting to use the Power Point presentations, and, again, with the seniors, they work well.

This site is pretty good. It helps me a lot with my school work and projects and et. I like it a lot, it's real phat. Keep it up.
Peter O'Doyle 11/4/99 10:22:37 AM
Well, I got on this here computer and expected to get edumacated, but it just turned out to be a big waste of my time. I thought you people knew what you were talking about but I guess I'm not thinking good no more. If you guys are supposed to be teaching us, then I feel bad about our futures yeah, and one more thing: O'Doyle rules!
Liza Martinez 11/4/99 10:28:44 AM

Excellent site. I am developing a list, of helpful site, for my students. This one is on my list. Pet Peeve - people WHO in speech and in writing using the word "that" when referring to people. Example: I like to interact with people THAT like Shakespeare. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to state my grievance.

I haven't really figured out how to use this yet but I do like the guestbook, I like to see what everyone has to say. I just got my internet account at Buckeye Career Center in New Philadelphia, Ohio, and I would like to say to anyone considering a vocational school Buckeye is great!!! It is so much better than my home school (New Phila). Once I learn more about the internet, I believe the school year will get more interesting. To everyone who knows me, good luck in all you do and stay in school. To all my best buds, keep cool and stay out of trouble. Peace I'm Out.

Betsie Nielson 11/17/99 7:36:43 PM
I just wanted to write and say THANK YOU-THANK YOU-THANK YOU for your wonderful site. I am a high school English teacher who hates the drudgery of teaching grammar, but you have made it sooooo much easier to teach! I love the online quizzes and I LOVE the powerpoint presentations - keep them coming. I am lucky to teach at a school that has pretty good technology and I have been able to use your powerpoints for my class using the overhead LCD projector. Students would much rather see those than my boring notes on the board. I think they're learning a lot more!!! Thanks!
Olivia Paff 11/19/99 6:08:28 PM
Cool site, recomended by my english teacher. It is on her web site

I have been looking and looking for a site like this. I am teaching my 15-year-old grammar (because the schools don't seem to be doing it), and I wanted in addition to the books and workbooks we are using a Web site to which she could refer. This is wonderful! I am the managing editor of a publications group for a NASA contract, and have I been feeling isolated! The customers for whom I do work just do not understand why it is important to make the changes I suggest. Sometimes I have to get out a grammar book and educate them.
evan king 11/23/99 8:44:23 PM
It would be nice if it were easier to find certain subjects like plurals.

Great website! Very thorough info. just for the clicking!
Michelle Brammer... Indianapolis, IN 12/28/99 9:44:25 PM
I'm having trouble finding the definition of a passive voice verbal. I know that a verbal is an infinitive, participle, or gerund where the verb is used as a noun, adjective, or adverb. I also know that a passive voice verb is the verb form when the action is being done to the subject. Even with that information, I can't put two and two together.
Astridgato 12/30/99 11:25:16 PM
Thank you very much for this grammar sight. If it was not for this, my school project would have been horrible. This sight has everything and more. I am very glad this sight was made. Thanks you again. :) Astridgato
