    Hi ghost rider — thanks for your question. A better way of saying it would be: “People used to find me interesting at one time, but these days I don’t seem to be interesting any more.” I hope this is helpful — all the best with your English studies :-)

Thank you

Hi Gill! Just a doubt about the last question. The song’s title “ain’t no mountain…” has double negative, right? Cause “ain’t” involves the word “not” already, so for me it would be correct to put it this way: “ain’t mountain…” or “ain’t a mountain…” (without “no”) am I right? Thanks ♡

By the way I love your new hairstyle 😍. You look pretty ♡. Hugs

Wednesday, September 13th 2017

    Hi blueapplee – you’re right, it’s a double negative – this can happen with ain’t, and it just acts as a negative. In standard English, if you use a double negative, it can have a positive meaning, eg “I can’t not go” means “I must go”, “I can’t avoid going”. I hope this helps :-)
