    So you made only one mistake on the quiz Silvia?

    Good for you!!! Have a great weekend.

    Regino

      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.

      Regino

        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.

        RSVP

        Regino

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

          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

          Love4life

          I agree too

GREAT LESSON JADE!! 8/9

ARTHUR78

thanks alot for lesson .. i have a question if u have agood time .. what difference between suggestion and offers

mohamed Al alwany

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.”

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…

    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?

      Jorge Pedroso

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

        denise77

          You speak well… I’m from Federal District and always is a pleasure to exchange knowledge…

          Edinho

“Your grandmother has a pain in her stomach. What can you say to show your care and support?”
“Do you think it might be cancer?”

9/9 I don´t know you guys, but what I learned of this lesson is a reminder that apologize can also be written with an “s” “apologise”. I hope this time it stays deep in my long term memory where it needs to be. Nice lesson Jade!

practice makes a perfect , so anyone wants to improve his grammar he should practise these grammatical rules and use them in daily life especially in everyday conversations not just learn then forget them over time .

In my country culture
it happen to common uneducated pepople they like to give advice without being asked even they do parentlike the way one give advice.and it is still okey.in my opinion it is such a jeopardy when they face other culture who hold a privacy.
