I agree with you teacher. I cannot think about “it’s a dog life” as a awful, difficult situation. Dogs have an easy life. I wish i was a dog.

Alex,thanks a lot for your job! I’ve also seen such exp “TOP DOG”, e.g.“I don’t care about being top dog. I just want to do the best I can.” My question is: can it be used positively or negatively talking about a person? Thx)))

Mr. Alex I like your teaching procedure. Tanks to you & all others teacher & also tanks to engvid group. Please could you check my sentence which I have written about this lesson below? & please send me a feed back to me at my e-mail anutosh.guha@rediffmail.com.

Sham & I were going to a tour for last weekend; you have known that Sham is loaded. We were visiting a casino & Sham played the casino game. At that time he was so crazy & spent all the money at the casino, then he was totally broke. After that we were going to a restaurant & ordered two hamburgers. My hamburger was fresh but Sham found an insect inside the hamburger. I told him “don’t worry your hamburger is on the house”. Then I called a waiter & showed him Sham’s hamburger & he changed that. After finished the eat Sham told me “I am very sorry, I’m broke. Please pay up the bill”. I told him “don’t worry about it Sham, I will pick up the tab”

anutoshguha

Well done… Good luck Alex…

I just have a question: Is the “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” idiom rude or not? I mean can we use it everywhere for everyone?

Pedro mpela

Hi Alex good lesson thanks

dukuray

I was wondering if I say that you are the top dog to someone, it’s polite or not? Maybe someone doesn’t like this kind of metaphor. Or it’s a kind of humor? Please advise, thanks!

KK

ghazal10

I just love it. after learning that, i would be able to express my situation now. In this dog eat dog world, in order to become a top dog, i have to fight like a dog even though sometimes i am sick as a dog. i am a old dog,which means people thought i was not be taught new tricks, but i still believe every dog has it’s day.

eunju7856

Thank you for very interesting lesson.

vlelena

I got 6 correct out of 7. I didn’t know about dog idioms at all. So I had fun. Thank you for your interesting lesson :)
BTW, I failed the last question. Why don’t you use plural form? “Dog__dog.” Dog is a singular form, isn’t it?
If “dogs__dog”, I answered “dogs eat dog.” Could you tell us the reason, please?

Happy04

Thank you, Alex!

Young Kyung Lee

The problem in Indo-Pak is that dog is considered as an inferior animal. It’s very much insulting if you call someone dog. People will laugh when I would say that my grandfather is sick as a dog.
Similarly, When I say, “you are sick. I have a feeling that it sound’s rude.
I request you to please make a lecture to clarify this and other places where we need to be careful. Thankyou Alex
