please explain
'i have been working in a company for last 5 years', can i also write 'i have been associated with this company for last 5 years'

Hello ranjeetibs,

Both sentences are grammatically correct - though note that you should say 'for the last five years' (with 'the') - but they mean slightly different things. Please look up 'work' and 'associated with' in our dictionary (see the search box on the right) to see the difference.

I would like to meet Robert Deniro. I admire him for his roles in the Hollywood movies. I believe that he is one of the best actress I've ever known. His role in Taxi Driver was unforgettable and fantastic. I can't forget his conversation with himself in front of mirror that he said "you talk to me?". I think he is a good looking man with a kind face.

Please let explain to me about these.

1. "Got the idea ?" means "Do you understand"
If my thinking is correct how is difference between them.
2. "It does the same job today?" talks about Central Park' role.
3. "I tell you what" = I show you how to do (introduce)?

Thank you very much.

Hell daongoc,

1. Yes, depending on the context. It is generally used when you're explaining or demonstrating something that you want the other person to do, and you want to check if they have followed and understood your example.

2. Yes, that is correct.

3. No. 'I tell you what' or 'I'll tell you what' is used when we want to make a suggestion. It means something similar to 'How about this?'

I hope that clarifies those things for you.

Many thank you for your answer.
Everything is cleared.

I think that is very important, because the rich and famous people shares a little of your triumph with the other people with less luck. It can learn teach values to kids that see them.

I like Emma Watson, she is a very pretty woman and good actress. I think that Emma will be one of the best actresses of england in the history.

Well I think that the work of these people is more than acceptable, because these actions you reaffirm their commitment and gratitude, with how well they have done in their job or jobs they do, I think everyone makes social and gratitude of one way or another work.

It doesn't matter if the help comes to a celebrity or anyone. The importance is to help someone that needs some support.
