Hey, James. Pretty good lesson. I’ve gotta confess you something. I didn’t like your classes once because I wasn’t able to understand a word you said. But now I can and I realized the excellent teacher you are, the way you make things clear. Outta doubts, you’re the best and funniest teacher I’ve ever had. Thank you so much.

Tuesday, January 15th 2013

Thanks James for this convenient lesson for me.

Tuesday, January 15th 2013

Hi, James!
Thanks for your explanations. I’ve got a doubt about two words you said: convenient and inconvenient. According you said, convenient is something easy to do. I think it means something good to do instead of easy to do. Maybe it’s not easy, but is good for you to do it. For example: It’s convenient for you to study five hours a day. (You should study 5h a day) It’s not easy, but it’s good, it’s convenient for you to do it. Am I confused? I know you know some Spanish. I’m Spanish and I think the most accurate translation would be ‘inconveniente’, I don’t know if they have the same meaning, or if this is a case of ‘false friends’.
Thanks a lot!

Tuesday, January 15th 2013

    Here’s something for a lesson!
    When you study a language (even your own native language), before you choose a word (the adjective ‘convenient’ in this case) to use in your phrase, *ALWAYS* check *ALL* its meanings (and usage) in a good dictionary! You should think that every word “somehow” carries all its meanings from the “speaker” to the “listener”. Try, also, changing the word, check:
    ‘It’s good for you to study five hours a day.’, ‘It’s proper for you to study five hours a day.’, ‘It’s convenient for you to study five hours a day.’ So, depending on what you really want to mean, choose accordingly, or, better, state your phrase so that it can be interpreted correctly.

Wednesday, January 16th 2013

Hi James,
it seems the newspaper in your hands is for the 2012-10-29 :) and there is an interesting title, in which i discovered the new meaning of word “braces”. The meaning i knew before is that “braces” is – { } and orthodontic braces. Now i know that it also can be a verb “to brace”, what means preparing.
That’s my adventures in this lesson. :)

By the way. Could you explain what is difference between? What will change if it had been written as “Toronto is preparing to superstorm”?

Thursday, January 17th 2013

There are so many comments yet which say how good is your lesson, so I’m going to just add that I like the way you teach. I’m very sensible to teaching notions or words from their roots. It widens (my) views about the language and recall me that many languages have similarities, due to their Latin basis. Very very helpful. Brilliant. Thank you!
