Good morning Jade. Thank you for this wonderful lesson. I got full 9/9 in your quiz. Now I have known lots of Greek words by your teaching. Once again thank you.

    The use of affixes is a useful reading technique. By knowing the suffix or affix of a word (root),you can infer or guess its meaning.

    Thanks for this vocab lesson Jade.

It’s not a chance that sometimes English and Italian have similar words, mainly in science: we all inherited them from Greece, the cradle of western society.

Getting knowledgeable enough about these Greek prefixes and suffixes can come in pretty handy sometimes. This lesson reminded me of some and the “poly” and “tele” parts were so much fun. Bye the way, teleporting would be a blessing to break through the cacophony issue I have to deal with here in Brazil whenever I needed to.

I’m definitely not familiar with her accent. It’s too hard to understand her.

Thank you Jade. I’m so interested in learning new vocabulary.
I did’nt got 100, because win N°3 question, I chose “Bonerism” because I knew that Arhtritis wasn’t ain inflammation of bones but of joints. Anyway I could thought that “Bonerism” didn’t even exist…It was a tricky question.

Best regards.

Thank you Jade. This is important for our everyday life but many times forgotten to learnt.

I´m sorry Jade, the greek prefix “poly” is not related to “strings” but to much, many, more than one, more than usual, excessive.

Jade, thank you very much.
It was very interesting lesson.Afterwards I found many quastions to think about.For example: there is no word ‘thene’ in English language. The word ‘polyethilene’ was contracted to ‘polythene’

Hi Jade and everyone!

Cheers for the nice video! It is rather interesting and useful. You are right. When we know these Greek prefixes and suffixes, we can guess the meaning of other words more easily. This lesson is helpful even for other languages, like Portuguese, for instance.

Keep on making this kind of lesson, and see you in your next video!

Hi Jade! Thanks for this polyglot lesson!

In Portuguese we have several words with parts derived from Greek too. The hardest part, then, when we find similar words that we know, is to learn to spell and pronounce these words in English.

For instance: “psiquiatra” versus “psychiatrist”.

Thank you Jade, useful words, and in Spain we use all of them

Although it is a synthetic resin that is a polymer of styrene, used chiefly as lightweight rigid foams and films, in my humble opinion plastic bags too could be made of Polystyrene LOL :-D
