or i got confused ?

Friday, June 24th 2016

    Hi ruf380 — you can say for example: “I got confused”, “I am confused”, “That explanation is confusing”, “His explanation caused a lot of confusion”. I hope this helps to show how to use the different forms of the word :-)

    Sunday, July 3rd 2016

Question 6 why did you choose answer “match”.
what this mean “match”?
Thanks

Sunday, June 26th 2016

    Hi — the word “match” is mentioned in the video, with two different meanings :-)

    Sunday, July 3rd 2016

      actually, i know a third meaning. when two things fight, most likely people, it’ called a match. am i right?

      Tuesday, July 5th 2016

    I think the word match has mean is : tran dau in vietnamese. but it has mean is: diem in vietnamese.
    when you need light of fire.
    you’ll need something make fire.
    I only guess.
    That right? teacher?

Tuesday, July 5th 2016

in this lesson I met new vocabulary but because of my knowledge as a beginner I realized I need to know more words. What is the easiest way to learn more vocabulary?

Thursday, July 7th 2016

Hello Gill! I love your pronunciation! Thanks for an interesting and useful lesson. My vocabulary allowed me to understand every word but I have to say that your illustrations are very clear. Also I discovered the origin of the word “плуг” (“plug” or maybe “ploog”, I’m not sure about transcription) in Ukrainian and Russian languages, which is translated as “plough” and has the same meaning.

Dear Gill,
I’m confused right now, I’ve watched one video called “Fix your spelling mistakes…” where you mentioned that a “Homonym” is a word which has different spelling and same sound, but in the explanation of this video you said that “Homonyms” are words that are spelled the same but different pronunciation.
