Friday, July 13th 2012

please check your website’s resources section. the pdf file linked to the “50 Common Grammar Mistakes in English Part-2” is same as “50 Common Grammar Mistakes in English Part-1”. so the content that we see in Part-2 can’t be saved as pdf because the pdf contains the content of Part-1.

Wednesday, January 22nd 2014

Thanks for the lesson, Jon!
But I have a question: is it absolutely the same to say “afraid” or “scared” to express fear? Or is there a little difference depending on the situation?

Friday, January 31st 2014

I’m afraid… I will never be able to speak English as a native…

Friday, January 31st 2014

Hi, dear Jon.Could you please answer to my question: In your video clip about ”afraid” ,you mentioned that afraid is an adjective, and as we know adjective is a word which describes a noun. But in the examples you wrote on white board the word ”afraid” describes the verb and not any noun.So it seems to be adverb.I can’t see any noun there. Would you please make it clear for me? thank you very much for your lessons and your good performance

Sunday, February 9th 2014
