I can not understand why we don’t use “weight” with above about Quiz No.1.

Wednesday, May 9th 2012

    Hi mate! Actually I´m not a sort of teacher, but I think with the word weight we have to use OVER instead of ABOVE! Good luck!

Hi Jon. This lesson is good. Then I’d like you to teach me “How to use the word ACTUALLY in English”. Because I felt there is a difference to use it between Native speakers(in Canada) and others. In this case dictionary doesn’t work. Help me!

Thank you for your lesson, although I answered wrong in the last question of the quiz, because I thought the right word should be above, but was OVER…
