Hello Rebecca. Great job! Thank you for this very useful lesson. See you next time and TAKE CARE!

Friday, May 6th 2016

    Hi Rebecca, how’ve you been? Just one question about the idiom “take note of …”

    Does it express the same meaning as “take notice of …”? or both have different meanings?

    Absorbing lesson Rebecca! Take care, see you soon!

    Saturday, May 7th 2016

      Hi Regino,

      Yes, “to take notice of” basically means the same as “to take note of”. All the best to you.

      Hey, great job JGeorge! That’s the best way to remember the meanings of these idioms – use them meaningfully and personalize them in some way. According to neuroscience, that is how we remember more effectively. All the best to you!

Saturday, May 7th 2016

    Thanks, Pablo. Glad you found the lesson useful. My best to you.

    Tuesday, May 10th 2016

Hi Rebecca, thanks for this lesson, take care

Saturday, May 7th 2016

Hi Rebecca!
I always like to learn new idioms. I’m self-taught, so I learned the eight by myself a long time ago.

Thank you for the lesson! ;)

Just one little doubt. When you use “take effect” with medicine, does “kick in” mean the same? As in, the painkiller kicked in as soon as I expected.

Bye! See you!
Take care!

Saturday, May 7th 2016

    The phrase “kick in” is slang, while “take effect” is more formal. So they mean the same but are used in different contexts. Thanks. You take care too!

    Tuesday, May 10th 2016

What I mean is, are “take effect” and “kick in” synonyms? :D

Sunday, May 8th 2016

    Hi Renata. I also studied the phrasal verb “kick in”. In my opinion, “Take effect” and “kick in” have the same meaning. Bye!

    Monday, May 9th 2016

Thanks teacher. 😊

Than you , I begin to learn idioms.

Monday, May 9th 2016

Thank you I learn fast.

Monday, May 9th 2016

Hi Rebecca , thanks for nice lesson , could you clarify me one inquiry about the using of “take sides”it seem to choose one of two choices,why don’t we use “take side”
Thanks for your answer.

Monday, May 9th 2016

    We use “take sides” because we are speaking about the general idea of not being impartial, though I agree it sounds like more than one side. We can also say, “I take your side / his side / her side/ their side”, to be more specific. Thanks for asking and for thinking! I wish you all the best.

this lesson takes me by surprise but it was interesting. teke care!

Wednesday, May 11th 2016

Dear Rebecca, I’ve got a vague memory of having being taught or read somewhere that the the idiom ” Take place ” is mainly used in situations where an event has been plannned / thought of before, whereas ” happen ” should be used when there is an element of ‘ surprise ‘ .i.e, not expected. Could you kindly elaborate on that? Thank you immensely in advance !

Monday, May 16th 2016

When I started learning from this site. I just watched videos and did the quiz part. But still i was unable to express my feeling, in a proper way. And negative energy inside me said, ” You will take forever to learn English”.
But then i take my time and start learning it with more concentration. I start taking note of lecture. I get a sense, my learning should take effect soon. Finally, i feel, i shouldn’t take sides without taking charge of it.

Tuesday, May 17th 2016

Hello Rebecca, I am a beginner.I watch eng vid’s videos sometimes. I want to watch every video on this website.I am wondering if there is any way that I could find which video I should watch first. I sorted out by beginner from the search menu, but it still unclear to me. Please help me, Rebecca.

i’ve heard many times this idiom “let’s not take a saw to the brunch we’re sitting on” while watching movies. Should i use the idiom of take a saw for sentences in life?
for instance, pleace not take a saw to the your life by doing mistake , or you’re taking a saw to your relationship with Jane by seeing the other people sneakily, and etcetera.
