Leave a Comment

Hey! It’s 03:15 am and I’m loving this website! Each time I find something interesting that keeps me from signing out! Ok, my questions to you guys: do you have methodology lessons? What are the best ways to keep ourselves (students) focused in class? and finally, how to strengthen memory? I hope you have answers for my questions!
Thank you immensely for such a website!

Friday, December 3rd 2010

Still the best teacher I’ve seen)

Friday, December 3rd 2010

Dude I liked it but I have a question, cause I’m in the UK is it the same as in US?

Friday, December 3rd 2010

Hi James,it seems to me that you explanation of “attract” is wrong.It comes from the latin ad-trahere,i.e. from the “ad” preposition :
ad= near or towards something,not away from =ab.

Saturday, December 4th 2010

    I agree with you.

    Prefixes often match with my mother tongue.
    So I also look them up in french.
    (How to improve two languages at the same time…)

    “Abstract” can be translated into “abstrait”.
    There is no etymological equivalent for the verb “attract”,
    however “attractive” is valuable for both english and french.

    Prefix “ad” seems sometimes to become an “at”.
    Even in latin “AD-tractivus” got the variant form “AT-tractivus” (cf. Wikipedia).

    Good eye miss_piggyM976 !

Wednesday, December 8th 2010

James rules!!!

Tuesday, March 15th 2011

Hello James! Thanks for the great lesson!!! You`ve used some words in this lesson, such as “under”, “below”, “beneath” and “underneath”. Could do explain the difference between them and the ways to use them (depending on meanings of sentences)? I look forward to have this kind of lesson from you. Best regards. Natalie.

Friday, March 25th 2011

    Sorry for stupid mistakes I`ve made in previous message. I did not check it before sending. :-)

    Friday, March 25th 2011

its little bad

Wednesday, March 30th 2011

Could you explaim me, please. How do you use the words which, that and what , but not in questions just in Phrases .I don’t understand when them writing something with those words

Wednesday, March 30th 2011

    I`ll try to help, if you don`t mind Maria.:-)

    You wrote: “Could you explaim me, please. How do you use the words which, that and what…”

    Examples: 1. Take THAT towel, not this one. (in this case you recommend to use some particular thing)
    2. This apple is delicious, but that one (on the table) has terrible taste.

    About WHAT… This verb can be used only in a question.

    Example: “What are you doing?” or “What do you want to know?”.

    I hope it helped. Best regards.

As always a long explanation about some words built with the particle “tract” which means “pull or draw”, but I have looked for it:
and there are a lot of meanings to build with this term. Thanks a lot, teacher James, a great explanation.
