Learn English – Lesson 41 – The Clairvoyant
Laura has decided to pay a visit to a clairvoyant because she has some questions about her future that she wants answers to. She has looked through the ads in her local newspaper and decided to see someone who lives close by. Although Laura does not believe in psychics, she is still willing to try it out once.
Clairvoyant: So, Laura, is there anything I can help you with?
Laura: Yes, I have a question. Will anyone fall in love with me soon?
Clairvoyant: I see something in your future. There is someone in your proximity who wants your attention, but you do not see anyone. Somebody is attracted to you and in the future this certain someone will be a very important person for you.
Laura: I would do anything to find out who that someone is. Can you tell me anything else about this person?
Clairvoyant: I see something, but it is not very clear. I can’t describe the person, but it will become clear to you.
Laura: Anything else?
Clairvoyant: There is something to do with your education. Did you recently complete your studies?
Laura: Yes! I just graduated from university a year ago.
Clairvoyant: Hmm.. Well, according to what I see you are not done with academics and education just yet. Something is on your horizon, and it looks like you will be returning to some form of institution for more education.
Laura: Really? I have missed university, but I haven’t wanted to return. Is there anything else you can tell me? Will I be meeting anyone interesting in the future?
Clairvoyant: Like I said before, someone you already know will become significant in your future. However, it also seems as if you will meet somebody new in the next six months who will guide you through something difficult.
Laura: Oh, I hope it’s not anything too difficult or serious!
Clairvoyant: No, my dear, if you make the right choices you will come out stronger than ever on the other side. Time is up now! Would you like to pay for another fifteen minutes?
Laura: No thanks, that is all I needed! Thank you, you’ve been very helpful.
Facts: The term clairvoyance (from French « clair » meaning « clear » and « voyance » meaning « vision ») refers to the ability to gain visual telepathic information about an object, person, location or physical event through means other than the known human senses.

We have seen in previous lessons the uses of some indefinite pronouns. We are going to review some of them and expand their uses.
Somebody/someone has burnt the book.
Something interesting is happening.

Indefinite Pronouns – Places
To refer to unspecified places we can use somewhere or anywhere. The uses of somewhere or anywhere correspond to those of some and any.
In the future, I’ll move somewhere.
I won’t move anywhere.
At the same time there is also nowhere that can mean nowhere:
There is nowhere to travel
As you can see there are equivalences between different indefinite pronouns:
Did you see anything important in the film?
There is nothing to say.
I didn’t talk to anybody.
Difference between every and all
There are quite clear differences between one and the other:
Every student has their own desk.
All the students have a desk.
Note, therefore, that:
I wake up at 8 every day.
Every person in the world is different.
EVERYTHING + VERB IN SINGULAR

Everyone is going OK.
Difference between Every day and All day
