Friday, October 7th 2016

Hi, Ronnie,
actually in Portuguese we don’t have a simillar word to flammable only to inflamablle. I think it helps things to sound less crazy then they are. As you said: this “in” prefix doesn’t mean opposite

Friday, October 7th 2016

Nice video lesson Ronnie, I got 9 out of 10. So, If you want, you are able to learn Portuguese language. Our vocabulary is so great and understandable.

Friday, October 7th 2016

Hi Ronnie! Thanks for this lesson!

Even though this kind of sport that is called American football existed already in some form in the Ancient Greece, before the soccer, according to my survey, I think it is somewhat “different” to call it football, indeed — this is cultural in the USA and Canada and certainly it was a name that was accepted in the past and stood after its rediscover. In Greece they called it Episkyros.

Saturday, October 15th 2016

    Today I learned about episkyros!

Friday, December 9th 2016

3/10 i know it, but i don’t know what the question want,anyway thank you senora Ronnie

Saturday, December 10th 2016

Ronnie, it was brilliant as usual. I remember you asked to teach you another language that isn’t so queer. Unfortunately, i can’t help ’cause in Russian we have a lot of words & frases that doesn’t make sense as well! Thus, we have a noun “соль” – salt and a verb “пересолить” (oversalt; пере is a Russian prefix meaning over), that means both adding too much salt ang going too far. We have another noun “борщ” – borshtch (it’s a traditional Ucranian and Russian soup) and a verb “переборщить” (overborshtch), that means going too far as well. So phrases “I’ve oversalted (added too much salt) to my borshtch” and “I’ve overborshtched (went too far) with salt mean JUST THE SAME!! Even my Russian-born brain it’s very queer…

Monday, December 12th 2016

    That’s very funny!

    In English, if you ruined the borscht, you could say “I’ve botched the borscht”!

    Monday, December 12th 2016

Sorry, I meant FOR my Russian-born brain
By the way, Ronnie, when you told about running nose I remembered there’s a book ‘The Nose’ by the famous russian writer N. Gogol’. It’s a story about an officer who lost his nose (no, he wasn’t ill, his nose just disappeared from his face one dreadful morning). Find this little tale, it fits this lesson perfectly!

Monday, December 12th 2016

thanks

Wednesday, December 14th 2016

interesting,but it took me a long time finishing this video cause of the slow net.

Saturday, December 17th 2016

      That’s fine, I enjoy the lesson. Thank you for your kindness.

Friday, February 10th 2017

Uh oh I made a mistake on the question no. 3. It said which is “incorrect”! I didn’t read the sentence well. So I had to be careful. I’ll try to be careful and read sentences well from now on. Hanamizu!!!!
