Hi! Could you please tell me the difference between ‘in-laws’ and ‘relatives’? Many thanks.

    Hi Alona,

    In-laws are family that you get when you get married. In other words, it’s your spouse’s family that now is now also yours. They are then also relatives, but not by blood.

    Relatives refers to all family, both blood relatives and in-laws.

    Does this help?

Dear Adam, idioms are always useful for foreign learners. Some sound funnily like “Bob´s your uncle”.
Thank you very much.

HI ADAM, I HOPE YOU ARE OK. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY SOME PEOPLE USE THE EXPRESSION “I CAN`T HELP EATING” AND THE VERB CAN MEANS PARAR IN THIS SENTENCE. ESPERO ME PUEDAS ENTENDER. GRACIAS.

    Hi Dulce,

    ‘can’t help’ means that you want to stop doing something or you don’t want to do something, but you do it anyway. You have no self-control over the action.

    It doesn’t have to be about eating:

    I can’t help feeling sorry for him. (you say this about someone you don’t like but you feel bad anyway when something bad happens to him).

    I can’t help looking at it, even though it’s disgusting.

    I can’t help thinking she likes me (though I have no reason to think that).

    Does this help?

    Adam

Thanks everyone :)
