I first met Kaori 20 years ago. I still know her today. In other words, I have known her for 20 years. Or, we have known each other for 20 years.<br />
<br />
Now, you may want to note (that) I'm using the present perfect tense which talks about something that started in the past and continues in the present. In this case, my friendship with Kaori started in the past, or 20 years ago, and continues in the present. We are still friends today.<br />
<br />
If you want to know the length of time of our friendship, you can ask me, "How long have you known Kaori?" You can also ask us, "How long have you known each other?" And our answer will be "20 years". We have known each other for 20 years.<br />
<br />
Now, would you like to practice together? Please repeat after me:<br />

<br />
What do a sheep and a fish have in common? The answer is (that) they use the same word whether they are in the singular or in the plural.<br />
<br />
Last week, we used the sentence "How many sheep are there in the flock?" Do you know how to count the sheep? One sheep, two sheep, three sheep. You don't say" two sheeps or three sheeps". If you see a lot of sheep, that means there is a flock of sheep.<br />
<br />
The same goes for fish. For example, I went fishing yesterday. I caught three fish, NOT three fishes. I went to the supermarket and I bought some fish, NOT some fishes. And a lot of fish swimming together in the same direction is a school of fish.<br />
<br />
There are many more words in English that are both singular and plural, like sheep and fish, and YOU as well.<br />
<br />
Now, would you like to try a quiz? I'll read three sentences. Please listen carefully and choose the one that is NOT correct grammatically. Ready?<br />
1. How many fish did you catch yesterday?<br />
2. How much fish did you buy in the supermarket?<br />

<br />
Some people count sheep when they have trouble sleeping. So, sheep is countable. If you want to know the number of sheep in a flock, how do you ask? You can say: How many sheep are there in the flock? Likewise, how many apples are there in the basket? How many brothers or sisters do you have? How many bottles of wine did you buy for the party?<br />
<br />
Now, if you want to ask about the quantity of something that is not countable, such as time, money, energy or water, you can use "how much” instead of "how many”. For example, how much money do you have in your savings account? How much time does it take to walk a mile? How much energy does your smartphone consume in a year?<br />
<br />
Perhaps, you want to write your own sentences using "how many " and "how much” to make sure you know how to use them.<br />
<br />
In the meantime, why don’t you try a quiz? I’ll read three sentences. Please listen carefully and choose the one that is NOT correct grammatically. Ready?<br />

2. How much water do we need to drink per day?<br />

Thank you for tuning in to Time for English.<br />
<br />
Are you familiar with the idiom "Don't put all your eggs in one basket"?<br />
<br />
Let's imagine: You put all your eggs in one basket, and then drop that basket on the floor. What will happen? Your eggs will break. You'll lose them all instantly.<br />
<br />
The eggs in this idiom can represent anything, such as money, investments, jobs, ideas, hopes and dreams. For example, as an investor, if you buy stocks, you want to diversify your portfolio. Putting all your eggs in one basket is too risky. As a student, it's not a good idea to submit only one college application. It's like putting all your eggs in one basket.<br />
<br />
I think it's a pretty good advice to follow, although I can think of one exception. If you're married, you should be putting all your eggs in one basket or be committed.<br />
<br />
Now, would you like to practice together? Please repeat after me:<br />

<br />
The 2020 Summer Games are just about a year away.<br />
<br />
The first ticket lottery was held in May, and the second-chance round in early August, for those who failed to win any tickets in the first round. I think the results of the additional lottery will be announced this coming Wednesday.<br />
<br />
Honestly, I'm not a big fan of sports, and I haven't applied for the ticket lottery. But if you have, you must be feeling anxious about the results right at this very moment. Well, in two days, you'll find out.<br />
<br />
Just in case, the word "lottery" in this case means a system used to decide who will get or be given something by choosing names or numbers by chance. In some countries, state or local governments raise funds by selling lottery tickets.<br />
