Why the answer is “fairly”?
Can we use “so” instead?
I should be grateful if you would give me the reason.

Hi, Jade.
Nice to see your new video.
You are such a photogenic girl that I always like to see you on Youtube.
Photogenic in Chinese is “上鏡” as widely spoken for our Hongkongers.
In my opinion, I would have expected to see more of your improvisings as value-added gifts for viewers.

    Wednesday, February 11th 2015

Thanks Jade for persuative lecture. I have a qeustion. In the Quiz No. 4, “The Pannel made interesting ___, …”, the correct answer is ‘recommendations’, is it wrong to use “discussions”? I think that “discussions” may be used for that. How do you think about it?

Monday, November 17th 2014

    In my opinion, the answer is recommendations, “the keyword is unworkable”. recommendation is the something to be done to solve the Issues, while discussion is one of the way to get recommendations.

    Wednesday, November 26th 2014

Thanks ,Jade.It was very usefull for me.

Tuesday, November 18th 2014

Thanks a lot for your helpful lesson. As for me, it could have been even better if I hadn’t had to say “oops” when I saw “Useful Phases…” instead of “phrases”. Sorry, but I couldn’t help noticing it and I’m hoping you’ll be more careful in future, you naughty girl.

9/9. I think the last question is inconclusive :-)

NB : you can say “i’d rather say their statements are 100% certain”. The affirmation of the statement can have a modal verb whereas the statement is 100% affirmative.
