  • Anywhere or Everywhere Video and Immigration Reform in the U.S.

    Ok, we’re adding “anywhere” and “everywhere” to our ongoing list of words that are often confusing in English. We’ve heard students at all levels use one of these, when they should have used the other.

    We think that with our video and exercise, we can explain it to you in a way that you will remember. We’ve also got a listening exercise this week about immigration reform in the United States. As always, we’ve created a lesson that our English teachers can give that goes with the grammar and listening exercise.

    Watch the video below, then try the exercise.
