      Default English learning thread

      Mimi Mama Wawili (naamini na wengine wengi) nina nia sana ya kujifunza na kuboresha uwezo wangu wa kutumia Lugha ya Kiingereza. Nimeomba ushauri na nimepata jibu kuwa kuna washiriki wengi hapa JF wana uwezo wa kunikuza katika hii lugha ngeni ambayo kwangu ni Mtihani katika kuweza kuitumia. Naomba ushauri wenu lakini zaidi naomba kujifunza. Kila ambae anaona anaweza kuwa ni Mwalimu naomba niwe mwanafunzi wake katika hili.

      Nitajitahidi sana post zinazofuata nitumie Kiingereza ambacho nina hakika kabisa kuwa kitapinda; na hapo ndipo najikabidhi kwenu ili kiwe kinyoofu. Nitakuwa huru sijali kukosea sababu najua ndio njia pekee naweza tambua ni kwa kiasi gani nakosea hasa nikitegemea masahihisho toka kwenu.

      Natanguliza shukrani kwa washiriki wote wataoweza nisaidia katika mapungufu yangu ya lugha hii ya Kiingereza.

      Mama Wawili.

      I find it hard to talk about the use of "has had" alone isolating "have had", both are used in expressing the Present Perfect Tense. "Have had" is used in all persons except in third person singular like in the example you provided I have had lunch while "has had" is used in third person singular example He has had lunch.

      On the other hand the tense form in "had had" is past perfect. It is used to express an activity that happened before another activity in the past, example I had had lunch at 1 before going to work . "Had had" is also used to indicate possession.

      Other contributors may offer us more insight in the topic.

      I note that you have begun and I congratulate you. Your level is actually quite good. I am myself not all that good, and I need people to correct me too. We need to encourage each other. Many mistakes can be avoided by using shorter sentences, especially when our command of the language is not very advanced.
      Dah! English is a problem for sure!

      pmwasyoke, don't use a noun and a pronoun together in a single sentence.

      For example,Instead of saying; " I am myself not that good..."

      Use, " I am also not that good ..." or any of its variants i.e. Personally et al et al

      Mama wawilii bibie umefika, wala usimsikilize mtu yoyote anaekufanyia "ntima-nyongo".

      Your command of the English language is impeccable. Your English construct in the above statement is more than what many college-level native speakers can achieve - (trust me, I have been teaching at college-level huku ughaibuni kwa miaka mingi sana). You are there baby. Keep on reading those books. That is the only sure way to build up your vocabulary and perfect the usage of those new words.

      Posting yako ya tangu mwaka jana ndio nimeiona leo. I wish I was there from the beginning. Ningejifaragua kuwa - "mnaona, mwanafunzi wangu yule". Lakini nafurahi na kuwapongeza wana JF wote waliokusaidia - GOOD JOB GALS & GUYS!!

      Thank you very much for your adviceTunduruboy ,I have been using the method you have proposed and Im observing incredible results, atleast I can write a paragraph like this ha ha ha ha ha.Though sometimes I need to meet with people face to face so that I can test my English, improve my vocabulary and be confident infront of people.I stand to be corrected.
