EXPEL / SUSPEND

  1. The disruptive student was EXPELLED from school => The student is not allowed to study anymore at that school. He/she has to find another school. This happens when the student has done something very wrong.
  2. The disruptive student was SUSPENDED from school => This is a form of punishment where the  student must spend some time (a day, 3 days, a week, …) away from school.

Not a maths problem!

The correct answer is 3. The phrase HALF AS MUCH AGAIN is just like saying 50% MORE.

Answer 1, though not the best way of expressing the idea, would be understood from the context of the conversation.

Answer 2 means that I earn 50% less than my friend.

Answer 4 means that my friend earns 100% more than I do.


President Trump has language problems too

“You look at what’s happening in Germany, you look at what’s happening what happened last night in Sweden.”

The key phrase is last night, putting the action clearly in the past. Therefore we need the past simple and not the present continuous as used by Trump.
