Today’s questions and anwers were very funnyyy. thanks Jon for making me laugh.

Thursday, August 9th 2012

Hey Jon I love your classes. But now I have this doubt about a word that is said in a TV serie really famous in USA and it`s used to ask for something(I mean that they want something)For example there is a last bottle of beer in the fridge and someone says this word and has the right to take it. I don`t know if you get it I hope so And hope an answer thank you

Thursday, August 9th 2012

    The word you’re looking for is “dibs”, from How I Met Your Mother. You can also say “I call dibs”.

    (Around here, when it’s the reverse situation — say, nobody wants to wash the dishes — you silently put your finger on the end of your nose. Other people will notice and also touch their noses. The last person to do it would have to wash the dishes. It’s called noes goes.)

    Monday, August 13th 2012

I have a question
in this sentence says “are in vehicles, but not the drivers”
i wonder if it’s right to say “are in vehicles, but are not the drivers”

Thursday, August 9th 2012

    you are repeating the word “Are” in a sentence.

Tuesday, December 10th 2013

Firstly, the lesson presented in this topic was very good. I didn’t know that ‘under the weather’ means feel sick. Other words like sway and shelter entered to my vocabulary right now. Good explanation. Congratulations!

Friday, December 20th 2013

    I might go on the Ship as a Passenger because I don’t fear Swaying. And when it begins to rain I’ll cover myself under the Shelter because standing on the Deck might cause me to feel Seasick and Nauseous; and no matter how Rough the seas is which causes Rocking Motion, but I’ll be Aboard for the 2014 Brazil FIFA World Cup

    Tudo de bom para 2014 copa do mundo!
