thanks for your effective lesson
I got a suggestion, could you make a lesson about the difference between some synonyms like “infer vs conclude ” or “suggest vs insinuate vs imply”, you know, these kinda of things that are so confusing for us to use in different situations,about their connotation and other stuff

“empathize” it’s a word very important; understand and share the feelings of another. Thanks for this lesson!

Wednesday, April 11th 2018

got 10/10

there is my first try, ready to have ane comments on it.

1. I was disillusioned about her when I herad what she’d said about a woman, who was asking for a help and support because her husband was seriously ill. There was not an ounce of empathy, she was very harsh and cynical. She was saying like the man had been acknowledged to be dead(or being dead? I’m confused, which is right?)
2. If you truly regret about something, maybe you should find an opportunity to mend it.
3. His story of overcoming something that had seemed to be impossimple to handle had a great impact on my conscious. It still motivates me, when I have troubles and almost feel despairing.

Here’s one of my assignments. I tried to make it funny and I wanted to share it would you. I’m open to suggestions. Thanks and let me know yours.

* As the captain of your national football team, I regret having to bring this news for my fans (also for those not so fans). The Argentinian football team is conscious about its regular performance and our lack of response. Since the dissatisfied draw in our first match with the Iceland football team and the unacceptable 3-0 with Croatia, Weโ€™re are trying to empathize with the pain that you may be going through and we hope to mend the team as long as God lend us a hand (or a leg. Itโ€™s all accepted).
Weโ€™re aware that many of you are disillusioned with us for leading you on victory that never existed. But please consider that we are under tremendous stress because of the impact a loss naturally causes .
We are reacting in , perhaps the best way possible, and we hope you can acknowledge the effort that… Ok, doesnโ€™t matter …
Therefore, in order to come out of this quandary of todayโ€™s must-win clash with Nigeria, We resolved to ask the Technical Director to send some of the staff substitutes to encourage the Croatian squad to beat Iceland so to help us out.*
