Hi Gill, speaking of food. Recently I have been watching a lot of culinary videos on YouTube and came across many quantitative nouns, such as fleck of butter, pad of butter, pinch of salt, glug of oil. Would you perhaps consider making a video about these? Plus – it would be great to know which of these nouns can be used with just anything and which make firm collocations with certain products (such as: can ‘clove’ pertain to anything else than garlic?)

Sunday, April 5th 2020

    That’s a great idea! I’ve added it to the list of requests.

    “Clove” has two meanings in English. A “clove” can be one of the pieces in a bulb of garlic (or a shallot). There is also a spice called “cloves”, used in baking, mulled wine, etc.

To the web developer behind this site: could you please gather all the replies somewhere within the user’s account? Just as the email notification contains a “Read reply” link, user could have all the replies collected in one place, sorted by date or grouped by video, or grouped by the teacher (even though the reply may come from someone else). This would make this site at least a bit friendly.

Tuesday, April 7th 2020

    I will look into it, thank you for the suggestion!

    Wednesday, April 8th 2020

Keeping my eyes peeled!
