    Got the highest score on the quiz? Congrats Cesar.

    Wednesday, May 28th 2014

      I like learning vocabulary in context; it helps me remember new words/expressions faster.

      To tell the truth Emma, there were some expressions that I did not know.

      Many thanks for this great “driving” lesson Emma. At last I passed the “driving” test, sorry quiz. Now, thanks to you I’m qualified to drive.

      All the best to you Emma.

          Thanks for your feedback Culprit, but I do not agree with your comment.

          You can find numerous “Thank you” expressions in the Oxford Advanced Genie Dictionary (2013); among these you can find this expression.

          Many thanks for your timely feedback.

Wednesday, May 28th 2014

Dear Miss Emma,
I love your lesson. I have one question if you don’t mind. The last question confused me a little bit and I need your help to explain if there a difference in meaning between “make a U-turn” and “Do a U-turn”

Thank you in advance for any help you are able to provide.

Wednesday, May 28th 2014

    Hello! It’s really hard to know when we have to use “do” or “make”. Most of the time they are part of fixed expressions and there is no explanation for that. We should say: “do the dishes / do housework / do your hair (and) make dinner / make an offer / make money…”
    In other cases, there are some explanations, like:”Use ‘do’ when speaking about vague, or indefinite activities. These include speaking in general using ‘-thing’ words such as something, anything, nothing, etc.” (and) “Generally, use ‘make’ when actually constructing or creating something (in other words, NOT for activities).”
    I have to confess that these explanations don’t help me very much. I prefer learn the expression and memorize it. Some of the expressions I know by heart and others I have to look for at the dictionary. I hope I have helped. Bye.

    Wednesday, June 4th 2014
