    Wednesday, January 11th 2012

thanks so much for ur lessons, thats very helpful…
but after the video, im still having some confusion in the word “family friend”, that if it means a friend we know because our family members knew he/she before, or we know he/she before and then he/she become our family’s friend
can u plz help me…thanks again, Rebecca.

Wednesday, January 11th 2012

    Good question. It seems to me that someone in the family had to make friends with the person first and then introduce them to others in the family. The main point is that this kind of “family friend” is someone who visits your home and also speaks to other members of your family and knows them well.

    Hope this helps! My best to you.

    Friday, February 24th 2012

Tks u great job,just i have learned smth new!

Thursday, January 12th 2012

Excuse my audacity, Rebecca, but could you explain the difference between words “share(d)” and “common”?

Friday, January 13th 2012

    Well, shared interests and common interests, for example, can mean the same thing.

    However, shared experiences are experiences that you had together with someone else and common experiences are experiences that many people, who do not necessarily know each other, have gone through.

    Hope this helps! All the best to you, Alex.

    Friday, February 24th 2012
