9/10 So, write off means to reduce the estimated value of something. I will know it.))

poslegg

    My mistake, too.

    If I understood when the product is selling off his price can be written off to stimulate the sales as well. I think that “to write off” means reduce the price, while “to sell off” means to stimulate the sales. Am I right?

    claudio77

      When I said that “to write off” means reduce the price, I mean It reduce the price by another cause different of only to sell off the product. I think that I could sell off something using another marketing plan to improve the sales, even though I hadn’t reduced the price, couldn’t I? Or can I just say “to sell off” when the product were with your price reduced?

      claudio77

        sell off- you can sell off because of different reasons.. maybe you need urgent money, you have to pay your employee s salary or you want to release your old product and to buy new model.

        fakhranda

        my understanding on write off is not similar to sell off, i think this phrase in business relates to reducing or waiving taxation by the government to encourage buyers to buy materials or items

        Alimna

    In this case I think “write off” means to renounce at the value of that car considering it as a total loss (it was completely destroyed).

    arinamg

      Sell off- means that you have to sell your products cheaper than its worths becaue you need urgent money or you have any reason to get urgent money

      fakhranda

        I know.I was speaking about “write off”

        arinamg

        Yes! You’re correct. Excellent expalnation!

        Wellington Porto Brito

        Yes! You’re correct. Excellent explanation!

        Wellington Porto Brito

    Its means to reduce the estimated value of something according to the depreciation of this object , so you can write off the depreciation value of your car :)

    SaNNoFa

    I made the same mistake and I did also get 9/10. That is a good score though.

    juliandap

    I got 7/10. I need some review :)

    Noureddine73

    It means something like “списать”, “списать в расходы”

    Ingvarex

noelgerard44

Hi, James!

Another terrific class. The Engvid is taking off in Brazil. Every day I have seen so many brazilians students in the comments and so I thank you guys twice. Your is the finest job about english in the web!

This time I put 9/10 in the quizz. The question about to write off the value car really got me. But, late, I understood my wrong.

See u, guys!

claudio77

    Hey Claudio, i’m form Brazil too, i heard about Engvid about 1 month ago and i really like it.

    And you made some mistake.
    “This time I put(GOT) 9/10”
    “But, late(later), I understood my wrong(mistake).”

    tulioaraujo

      and my mistake was sell off istead of write off..
      sell off is correct for the fist sentence, but later when we pay attention to the sequence of the accidents, we can realise that write off is right.

      We are going to have to _________ the value of that car. I think it was completely destroyed in the accident.
      write off

      fakhranda

I like your new photo, James. You look serious ;)

Mayce

I would like to learn English very soon because I have a lot of American friends

pafsilipoclub

Thanks a million, James..

So, “write off” here is not only for taxes, but also it goes for the value of the things?

As in the quiz, reducing the value if the car’s price because it was totaled?

bassamigo

You’re so funny and I like it.

khuongduy93

jofraviman

James, you’re awesome. I’m a great fan of your lessons. I’d like to follow you either on twitter or Facebook? Could you tell?

robuca2013

9 !!! I didnt understand the question number 7… Was “Write off ” and I put “sell off”. I have doubts yet.

glauzuki

    “Sell off” means to sell at a low price.You can sell “the car” but not “the value” of the car, like in the question. But you can “write off the value of that car” which means you give up on the value of that car, because it is completely destroyed.

    arinamg

    Hi Glauzuki,
    the car was damaged, so they have to decrease or reduce or cut down (or write off) its value now.

    Radoslav

Ow no james! I can’t believe that you took off your common saying “www.engvid.com”
:(
lol

Best wishes!

simara2013
