Where is the mistake?
Wrong sentence:The firemen arrived in the scene of the fire and rescued them.
Why:arrive in 后面一般加较大的地方，如国家，身份，城市等。arrive at后面一般加较小的地方，如车站、机场、村庄、学校等。若后面没有地点或跟方位副词则不需要加介词。
Correct sentence:The firemen arrived at the scence of the fire and rescued them.
Wrong sentence:Most girl's parents don't allow them stay out late.
Mistake:allow them stay
Why:allow 与let意思相近，但在使用上有区别：let sb.do sth.;allow sb.to do sth.
Correct sentence:Most girl's parents don't allow them to stay out late.
Wrong sentence:Ross hates Maths,and he always falls sleepy in Maths in classes
Why:sleepy是形容词，意为“困倦的；瞌睡的”。可以说feel sleepy意为“感到有睡意的，但没有睡着”。asleep是形容词，只能作表语，意为“睡着的”。fall asleep是动词词组，意为“睡着了”。
Correct sentence:Rose hates Maths,and he always falls asleep in Maths classes.
From these sentences,we've learnt that.
Look at the sentences below.which one do you think is right?
He is seeing televsion. He is watching televsion.
We often use certain words together and we call this collocation.For example,we say "watch television",not "see tevelvsion".

The receptionist finally allowed the waiter to lead the blind man and his guide dog to thier seat.
