Mr.James how are you today ?, thank you for this lesson , I loved it. but I asked you a question a while ago, don’t bother looking I’ll ask it here again , but would you, please answer me this time …
what does “My head is all over the wall”, when A for instance is talking to B and B says it , does it mean he is not following? does it have a specific reason?,
also, “To see right through someone” I think it’s a bad thing as if he doesn’t exist I think. would you explain it to me, also to ” dismiss someone out of hand “, and last thing is most important
I rather (go – to go – going)
I’d rather (go – to go – going)
I prefer (go – to go – going)
I’d prefer (go – to go – going)
I like (go – to go – going)
I’d like (go – to go – going)
I suggest (go – to go – going)
I’d suggest (go – to go – going)
etc…
such verbs ^^ when to choose what and why ?
thank you anyway James …

    Hi, friend! The word “would” was used when you imagine “something” its possible and you know that the person could say “NO”. That’s difference. I hope it can help you find it out.

Dear teacher,
thanks for your lesson it was helpful and I understood the adverbs suffixes – ly and -ward(s)
but I couldn’t understand – wise obviously.
please, may you right some examples ?
thanks, Regards.

Hasan

First of all, it was a very instructive lesson, however I do have a question you said that adverbs ending in ward(s) are used for directions but what about the adverb afterward? I hope you understand my question. Thank you for your answer.

Hi, James!
As far as I remember, you are currently teaching in one of the language schools of Canada. Which one? I’m from Ukraine and I’m going to study English in Canada for a couple of weeks and I’m choosing the language school now. I’d really like to get into your class, but, if it’s impossible, what school would you recommend?

Victor

Hi teacher, as I see you probably don’t reply but anyway, I’ve got this doubt, because is still very difficult for me to understand the meaning of wise, What would be the difference between timely/timewise, budgetly/budgetwise, moneyly/moneywise, familiarly/familiwise?

Hello James. I’d like you to analyze again if the word “towards” is really acting as as adverb in your clause “Mr. E. walked slowly towards the cute girl.” Towards is a preposition and prepositions can act like adverbs. But to act as adverbs they cannot have an object. Prepositions, on the other hand require and object. In this case, ” the cute girl” is an object. What’s your opinion?

Hello James!It was a very useful and amazing lesson, but to be truth I didnt undestand the 6th question.
The correct adverb suffix for “budget” is ____________.
-ward
-ly
-wise
How does “budget” look like with “wise”?

Profile photo of Vika17072 Vika17072

    HI!
    – wise is used with nouns and “budget” is a noun too. so it is the right answer. I think it is the simple way to find the right one ))
    if you say that budget also is a verb. yes it is, you can use it as a verb. But as you know, none of these suffexes used with verb, right?
    I hope you got it what I want to say.

excuse me!I think the word “towards” is a preposition,not an adverb.

Profile photo of niyamiya niyamiya

I had no idea about the adverbs with the suffix “-wise”, except some particular cases like clockwise, otherwise, and others that I can’t remember, but with “-ly” and “-ward(s)” I had had more contact with words built with them. I have just seen other cases with “-wise” like crosswise, edgewise, marketwise, timewise, saleswise, streetwise, worldly-wise and so on, very strange for me when I have read them. Thanks a lot, teacher James Greer from Engvid, a very interesting and amusing lesson.
