      Hi Alex, how’ve you been?

      Just one comment on the learning of new words:

      It’s really difficult for me to learn uncommon words especially if they are too formal and I do not have a chance to use them in my daily live.

      Great lesson Alex!

      Regards

Wednesday, May 14th 2014

I can’t believe i got 70% in this test.
i just try to understand the meaning of words and watch this video two time and then i got it,

I BELIEVE IN PRACTICE BECAUSE PRACTICE MAKE PERFECT.

1) the first asylum for the mentally ill in England. It is currently located in Beckenham, Kent. The word bedlam came to be used generically for all psychiatric hospitals and sometimes is used colloquially for an uproar.
2)Synonyms of Gall.
nerve, audacity, brass, cheek.
3)Quagmire
The day may come when you need them to rescue yourself from a QUAGMIRE.
4)Rabble
The despised RABBLE must be ruled by those who are more enlightened and divine.

Wednesday, May 14th 2014

    Practice doesn’t make a man perfect but perfect practice make a man perfect.

    Wednesday, May 14th 2014

10 out of 10. but I might forget the words bedlam and rabble if I don’t use them from time to time.

Thursday, May 15th 2014

Can I say: the next world cup will be a bedlam?

Thursday, May 15th 2014

    Hi Grazisil13, bedlam is an uncountable word, then you must not use ‘ a bedlam’, but quagmire.
    I hope that helps.

    Monday, May 19th 2014

Very interesting and useful words!! I can’t wait to use them in my next conversation!! LOL!!!
Something like, I wake up very late this morning. My husband had the gall to go to the movies without me; he will be in a quagmire whenever he is back. My entire house is in a bedlam after trying to find the control remote. I don’t want to be a rabble arouser, but people let’s go to the streets and ask the government for better salaries!!! LOL!! that was fun!!

Tuesday, May 20th 2014

Hi there ! I am wondering why you put an article before quagmire and not before bedlam? I would like to know what is the rule in this case, as in my mind they are both uncountable, abstract nouns. Thanks!

I can’t distinguish bedlam and rabble clearly.
Help me Alex

Wednesday, June 18th 2014

    “Bedlam” is a situation at the time of protest in a city or place.

    “Rabble” is a group of people who create such situation.

    In short:Rabble “It’s group of angry or not satisfy people”
