"I joined robert sir’s spoken english class in the month of february since I felt the need to learn english from the basics. I like the way robert sir takes class. I have liked his class since the day he took his first demo class. He is very patient and of a very friendly nature. I felt very comfortable with him. Before joining I was not able to speak publicly in english. I felt very shy to talk in english even in front of my husband. But after robert sir’s class I have improved my english a lot. Now I have the courage to talk confidently in public. Robert sir gave me the space to talk at my own pace. He would never hurry me up or interrupt me. I always admire his patience because he waits until I complete the sentence and he gave me time to think. He gave me some very useful grammar material. His grammar material was very easy to understand. He taught me basic grammar. He explained word by word. So that’s how I came to know all the mistakes that I used to do earlier. He is like a father figure for me and hence I feel very comfortable with him. He also encouraged me a lot from day 1 itself. He covers all the skills like reading, writing, listening and speaking. After his class I have got a little confidence to open my mouth and talk. Thank you for supporting me sir and for being instrumental in my development. "

"Robert sir is very gentle when he interacts with students. I like the way he teaches. He allows for flexible class timings according to my requirements. I am satisfied with his teaching. My spoken English skills have improved and I would definitely recommend him / his training to my friends. I really enjoy the conversation class with him. Sir gives me the correct guidance and makes it easy for me to understand. The grammar portion that he teaches is taught by him in such a way that I am able to understand difficult concepts easily. I do look forward to the conversation sessions that I usually have with him. "

"Robert sir has a friendly attitude towards students. I like the way he speaks English because his pronunciation is very good and he is fluent. He has a calm and composed approach while interacting with students because he patiently listens to each student and allows them to complete their statements before correcting their errors if there are any. He teaches Grammar very well and makes us practice Spoken English conversation skills. "

'A European' is correct. The first alphabet of the word 'European' is a vowel. However, the sound of the word is more like 'Youropean' and not like the sound of the vowel 'e' in elephant. Hence the article 'a' is used instead of 'an'.

Yes. If a word starts with a vowel but does not sound like one, then the article 'a' is to be used instead of 'an'. For eg. the word 'university' sounds like 'youniversity'. So we should use the article 'a' instead of 'an'. Likewise, 'European' sounds like 'youropean' and union sounds like 'younion'.

Consider the sentence "Somebody cleans the office everyday". This sentence is in simple present active voice with the subject denoted by the word "somebody" and the object denoted by the words "the office". The action denoted by the verb "cleans" is transferred to the object by the subject. The above sentence can be changed into simple present passive voice likewise - "The office is cleaned everyday [by somebody]". Note that the subject and the object have interchanged their positions. The format for the verb in simple present passive positive format is "am/is/are + past participle". In the above example the active verb changes from "cleans" to "is cleaned" and the action denoted by the verb transfers to the subject in this case.

The verb lie has 2 meanings. When we refer to 'lie' as in 'lying down on the floor', the simple past and the past participle are lay and lain respectively. When we refer to 'lie' with the meaning 'false statement', then the simple past and past participle is the same word which is 'lied'.
