      To tell the truth, making someone feel better is not always an easy task; it depends much on the situation involved.

      However, this video lesson gave us the essentials to console/reassure someone that is going through a difficult situation.

      Telling jokes is not a good piece of advice. This would make the situation even worse. I wouldn´t dream of doing so.

      Many thanks for this great lesson Jade.

        Sorry Jade, but I DO NOT agree with the answer for number six.

        If someone is going through financial problems, I will not advice them to borrow money from a bank, even though it is a polite answer.

        This would make their situation even worse; just common sense Jade, I think.

          you know what i agree with u on that,cuz thats the one that i failed to answer

          Profile photo of cupil27 cupil27

          I agree with you Regino.
          Sometimes, people are being a lost students because they need to borrow money, but some DO NOT. Evidentially we all are facing a dilemma through the financial aid. Vut if you do not advise them to borrow money, where should they will get that from? Seeking a job is so though.
          We must learn from every evidence.
          Thanks

7/9 I choosed the wrong ones on the 6 and the 7. “You should sell your car. ” because if you have money problems now, borrowing money from the bank doesn’t solve the problem. The other “it might be a good idea to think about apologising,”, it’s more sympathetic than “you think should apologies.”

Profile photo of Jorge Pedroso Jorge Pedroso

    I guess the answer of number six is not only about the better thing do do, but the best way to say it. “You should” is too direct. As she explained, “have you considered” is softer. I think the perfect answer could be: “Have you considered selling your car?” Number 7 I also got wrong. I guess “it might be a good idea to think about apologising,” much more appropriate…

    Profile photo of denise77 denise77

      About the sixth I agree with your perspective, how you choose the words to say it. But on the seventh, I don´t understand?!! You agree with me that´s it?

      Profile photo of Jorge Pedroso Jorge Pedroso

        Yes, of course. I answered the same as you in number 7.
