Janaalo

Thanks Jon,
It was just interesting beyond a shadow of a doubt:)

Sherry

yes i think also that number 7 is wrong
i havent understood yet the question about which s more active?hear or listen….
the lesson was pretty intersting,i like it so much.congratulations for all the teachers

marius1989

    Hi Marius, in English is used LISTEN when you’re paying attention to someone or thing, and HEAR is used just for sounds.

    karem95

      hello Karem thank you.i was thinking it isnt a tie with the lesson silly me:D
      anyway thank you:)

      marius1989

    There was an error with the quiz. It has been fixed.

    engVid

    the question no.8, ” which word’s more active?”, and the answer is ” listen”. because “to listen’ means that u try to listen to smt consciously. and ” to hear’ just means u hear smt unconsciouly, some time u just hear smt by accident

Jon, nice lesson. I have a couple of remarks to state here. First, I think it should be – some plants do well in the “shade”, not in the “shadow”. And lastly, it doesn’t have to mean that if something is not moving that it ought to be called “shade”. For instance, “building” has its own shadow, despite the fact it’s not moving…

Marko

    I mean, the meaning is so similar that we can’t differentiate it always, let alone to explain to someone. Moreover, we can say: “It’s scorcher! Go and find the shade in the building’s shadow.”

    Marko

Hey guys, nice video, thank you for the videos and the website. Everything is free and very useful for me and my co-workers, here in Brazil. We work as English teachers, so it helps us a lot

Daniel

    That’s great to hear, Daniel.

samuel

Nice drawing Jon :)

sara

Thanks! Very useful.

almas

Jon, could you make a video which concerns “telling a tale” topic? I mean, which tenses we should use when we are telling someone about something what was already happened in the past. Do perfect tenses are acceptable in telling a story? Could you explain to us what we should know about “telling a tale”?

Rafael, listen is when you choose hear,” I listen music in my IPod” and hear is for example when TV is turn on and you hear it although you aren´t interested.

Adriana

yeeeeeeeeeeeh I answer it all :)))))

jafcru12

Thank you for the lesson!

Thais

This lessons are very important for me who is still learning english. I wanna thank, all of you, for these lessons. See you in the next.

Gabriel Lopes de Assis Siqueira

Thank you, Jon!
I was surprised to know that these words have a little bit different meanings. But now I have a question.

In “Dandelion wine” I’ve found next sentence.
“And they walked through the forest, Father very tall, Douglas moving in his shadow, and Tom, very small, trotting in his brother’s shade.”

Are there any reasons, why Father has a shadow and Douglas has a shade?

Michael Bulanov

    It’s a stylistic choice by the author. Notice how he uses two different words to describe how they walk, too:

    • Douglas moving in his shadow
    • Tom trotting in his brother’s shade

    Try reading it out loud and you can see how using different words gives it a rhythm, like music or poetry. Ray Bradbury is one of the very best authors for that. Here’s a passage from The October Country (which is good to read at this time of year):

    That country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnights stay. That country composed in the main of cellars, sub-cellars, coal-bins, closets, attics, and pantries faced away from the sun. That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain.

      Oh! Thanks for the such detailed answer!
