Question:

How do I know if the property is a good deal?

Vicky goh C.
Answer:

While there's no crystal ball on whether a certain home is a bargain and will appreciate, rest assured that with research, you can keep surprises to a minimum. The best way is to check out comps—what similar properties are selling for in the area and whether those prices have been going up or down in the recent past

English as a Second Language

Question:

- The English call autumn ; while the Americans call it fall - The English write favour,honour; while the Americans favor,honor. - The English pronounce 'literature'(litcheche); while the Americans (litireitour). Why are there all these differences, please?

Vicky goh C.
Answer:

The differences exist because English evolves in every country where it is spoken as a native language and new forms are created. There are many small differences between British, American, South African, Australian English. It's more important to know the differences rather than why they are different.

Question:

Could you tell me if there is any difference between "I've been to Japan" and "I've been in Japan"? Actually, Is it possible to use the second variant or this form doesn't exist at all.

Vicky goh C.
Answer:

Yes, there is a difference, in most instances where you want to say you have visited somewhere, you say you have been to that place: "I've been to Japan." "I've been to the cinema." "I've just been to the toilet." In these cases, you are using been as the other past participle of go, and you have to use to as the proposition. However, if you are using been as the past participle, and want to indicate a state, or for how long you were somewhere, you can use been in.
