Hi, sorry for late response.  Here is my attempt at explaining this for you.   It doesn't sound right to say  "I attempt doing something", like "I attempt doing my homework." You have to say "I will attempt to" or " I am attempting to".   I believe the only time you can use attempt and doing something in the same sentence is if you use it as an act of doing something such as "Her attempt at finding a boyfriend has failed so far." and "My attempt at explaining this is not very helpful." haha.  Notice that you need the infinitive (at) after attempt.

We all know that we say " I attempt to do sth", but do you also say "I attempt doing sth"? Please give examples.
Thank you!

Hi, thanks for the question.  When you are referring to listening to the radio you should definitely say "it's on the air".  It is used when we are referring to broadcasts such as tv channels and radio stations.  "In the air" generally refers to an object that is in the air, like a kite, an airplane, a bird, anything that is actually in the air because those things are not on the air, the air is all around them so they are in the air.  You could also use it for something like "love is in the air".

Hi Cassie,  one food dish that I recommend is pasta with pesto sauce, it might technically be an Italian dish but we eat it here.  All you really need is pasta, basil, garlic, olive oil and Parmesan cheese, so good!

Hi, Matt. I have a question. If we want to say a program is broadcasting in the radio, do we say 'it's on the air' or 'it's in the air'? What other differences of these two phrases?

Thank you!
