tonight i was erupted so i got 10/10, i have study English constantly and although busy of my business but i don’t disrupt my learing English. however sometime i still spoke in a rather abrupt way because i don’t have enough vocabulary. i always avoid interrupt when they are speaking. I’m not a political so i don’t understand about corrupting. Thank Gill

    Hi Nguyen,

    I have read your nice comment you made certainly with a lot of effort.

    If you dont get offended, I will have some questions to you :

    You have written, you were ERUPTED. What do you mean with this ? Because the verb ERUPT has this meanings : 1. if fighting, violence, noise etc erupts, it starts suddenly , 2.if a volcano erupts, it explodes and sends smoke, fire, and rock into the sky. None of them is OK in your sentence.

    DISRUPT can be used only if the interruption is connected with a problem. I think you used the word incorrectly. It should be INTERRUPT.

    Nice day,
    Adriana
