Hi James! Thank YOU, dear teacher!
God bless all of you for the goodness that you do guys!

    This is a good start James, just in case we get into trouble; one never knows.

    Being familiar with the workings of the judicial system in the foreign country may help you to handle unexpected legal situation with – I would say- a little more confidence.

    By the way James, are you an attorney or something like that?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    See you soon!

    Friday, January 15th 2016

I love the part of the difference between misdemeanor and felony in Canada and USA which helps me learn more about possible judgement and meaning in different countries.

    Do you like Dire Straits? I still listen the song “Sultans of Swing”.

    Monday, January 18th 2016

      Yeah, I do love their music. Sultans of Swing is the most famous one, but there´re many many more that´re worth to listen to, i.e. Tunnel of Love, Where do you think you´re going or Brothers in Arms.
      By the way, Rebecca loves the song called Shangri-La by Mark Knopfler :) :)

I learned some things by myself watching Law & Order SVU, The Good Wife, etc, but this lesson gives more clarity. I’m still trying to absorb the term “manslaughter”. I learned it from Rebecca. Thanks, James! I’m very fond of you and your lessons. ;)

I’m a good girl, I always keep my nose clean. :-)

See ya!

Thursday, February 11th 2016

    Hi, Renata! The expression is completely different from that we use in Brazil, but “manslaughter” means when someone kills another unintentionally. Bye!
