    1.The plumber is repairing the pipes now.It will be ready again.

    而家repair緊, 即係要將來才會ready, 所以用future tense。

    2.The superstar has visited Hong Kong two times.

    那個超級巨星曾經到訪過香港兩次, 所以用present perfect tense.

    3.If John is late again,he will be punished by the teacher.

    當約翰再遲到多一次, 老師就會懲罰他。

    4.Peter told his girl friend that he already has bought a diamond ring for her birthday.

    這個與第二個一樣, 曾經= present perfect tense

    5.She has been reading the book for half an hour.

    當一個動作於過去發生,持續到現在,並有可能會繼續發生至將來,我們會用 Present Perfect Continuous Tense

    6.He will be staying in Macau all next week.

    我們用 Future Continuous Tense 來交待一些已經計劃了的動作

    7.You know who is the principal of our school now?

    ?=問題

    但是這個不是一個正確的問問題方法

    應該係: Do you know who is the principal of our school now?

    or

    you do know who is the principal of our school now, don't you?

    The plumber ( It should be a "he" here. I have seen some female plumbers tho. This can never be "IT".) The pipes = they

    It will be ready again. ( the simple future tense)<------The subject "it" is unknown here!

    2) The superstar HAS visited Hong Kong twice.

    WE SHOULD SAY " TWICE" INSTEAD OF SAYING" TWO TIMES".

    To talk about one's experiences, you may use the present perfect tense.

    3) If John IS late again, he will be punished by the teacher.

    This is a conditional sentence( type 1).

    4) Peter told his girlfriend( ONE WORD) that he has already bought a diamon ring for her birthday.

    Peter told his girlfriend( one word) that he had already bought a diamond ring for her birthday. ( reported speech)

    or

    Peter told his girlfriend(one word) that he had already bought her a diamond ring for her birthday.( reported speech as well)

    It would be more natural if we placed the adverb"already" between " had and bought".

    5.She_____(read)the book for half an hour.

    She HAS BEEN READING the book for half an hour.

    To show an action that took place some time in the past and up to now it is still going on, we should then use the present perfect continous( progressive) tense.

    6.He_____(stay)in Macau all next week.

    He WILL BE STAYING in Macau all next week. = the future continous( progressive) tense

    Footnote: This tense is used to show a fixed plan for the future.

    7.You_____(know)who is the principal of our school now?( a BIG mistake here!)

    You know who the principal of our school IS NOW?= oral English

    Do you know who the principal of our school is now?= (Kinda formal)

    Note: Do you know.........................<-- = a question

    Who is the principal of .........<-- = the other question

    We CANNOT FORM A QUESTION THIS WAY!!!!!!
