    Mehrlino, I’m Brazilian too as you can see. Please can you explain to abou the (nose for value and paying through the nose?)
    I got 10 of 10 but I couldn’t understand it very well.

    Profile photo of Ronchi Ronchi

      Hi, Ronchi.
      As I understood it, nose for value means “faro para bons negócios”.
      And pay through the nose means “pagar os olhos da cara”.

      Again, it would be nice to have a Brazilian teacher around here…

      Profile photo of Evaldo Mendes Evaldo Mendes

        That was I got too, but thanks for your help. Yeah would be awesome hava a Brazilian one!

        Profile photo of Ronchi Ronchi

        “Pagar os olhos da cara” is the best translation for “Pay through the nose” expression… gj!

      You do magic James; the ease with wich you explained these face expressions was astonishing.

      Your good sense of humor is the ingredient that always gives that special flavor to your videos.

      Hi!! I think “pay through the nose” when pay more than it´s worth…

I have been making lots of headway on learning English.

    Dear, Misakoko. I’m not sure if this form “lots of headway” is okay. I understand that the expression demands a singular form. Don´t take me bad, just trying to help. Best wishes!

that’s so good but nose for value can’t understand it well :(

Profile photo of Shaza Moky Shaza Moky

    Dear, Shaza.
    Nose for value, means that you have a good sense for business, you are able to buy things in their fair prices.

    Profile photo of w4gnersilv4 w4gnersilv4

    if you have a nose for value, it means you know what is good and what is bad, what you should do and what you shouldn’t do :)

Hey James! I have a vocabulary question: is there any difference between the words “present” and “gift”? is there a special situation that we have to use one or another?

Profile photo of Nelirene Nelirene

    Diferença em significado, nenhum. “Present” veio do Latim, “gift” do inglês antigo.

    No uso idiomático vc encontra um ou o outro sendo empregado distintamente em muitos casos.
    Por exemplo, “gift-giving” usa “gift” especificamente.
    Esses casos aprendemos aos poucos.

    Gift pode significar “dom”,”talento para se fazer algo”. Veja:

    a) He has a gift for languages. (Ele tem talento para línguas.)
    b) She had a gift for music. (Ela tinha um dom para música.)

    *Neste caso não se usa “present”.

I have a questions
Is lippy like a persons who lye or a lyier?

Profile photo of Mabla Mabla

    lippy is someone who talk a lot which jump from one topic to another topic in short time. :D

    Profile photo of mfauzanazim mfauzanazim

Or is only a persons who talk a lot

Profile photo of Mabla Mabla

    i think “lippy” is the person who talks too much in a rude way .

Short writing using these expressions !!(waiting corrections :) )

Actually, i am in a critical age which i believe that any decision made will shape my future. That’s why i should be aware to do well. So, i have a lot of my mind, many problems to face but iam slightly secure because i have noise for value and when i want something, i pay for the noise to get it.So, iam always making headway.
