Very very good lesson, thank you:) I have a question: What word can I use to describe the action when e.g. the food is coming back through someone’s mouth from the stomach?

Is “to vomit” a good verb?

Friday, September 2nd 2011

    I think “throw up” is a good one.

    Friday, September 2nd 2011

      yes as well.

      Saturday, October 15th 2011

    i think two words to describe this action
    1- throw up
    2- puke

    Sunday, September 4th 2011

      To puke is also another appropriate word.

      Saturday, October 15th 2011

    Yes. To vomit (and slang could be: to barf, or “toss your cookies”. Some animals will regurgitate to feed their young

    Saturday, October 15th 2011

      what about baby’s puke (sorry for the harsh), is there any softening way to say it?

      Wednesday, December 28th 2011

    I think you can use regurgitation for this situation. Actually vomiting is almost always with nausea ( a bad sensation in stomach before vomiting)

    Wednesday, November 23rd 2016

WooooW !!! Good job man thx about new vocabulary that you provided us

Friday, September 2nd 2011

thanks>but i gut 2 in quse not 1

Friday, September 2nd 2011

thank you!

Friday, September 2nd 2011

actually what’s different of cold and fever??? and which one is more impolite, fart or burb?

Friday, September 2nd 2011

    burp i think it’s normal,but instead of saying fart you could say politely flatulence!

    Saturday, September 3rd 2011

    The difference between cold and fever it hard to explained!

    Fart is normal,just make it fun when you’re fart,like you saying to your friends (watch out am gonna to fart)LOL

    Burp not burb it is bad for me and disgusting!!

    Anyways just make sure you say EXCUSE ME!for any situations like fart,burp etc….and you’ll by fine.IMHO

    Sunday, September 4th 2011

      youare not orgin arbic

      Saturday, September 10th 2011

    i think Fever is stating of the Cold

    Friday, September 9th 2011

    when you catch a cold, you may have different symptoms: fever, malaise, sneezes, muscle pain, etc. In this case, fever is a symptom of the cold, but fever can be symptom of many diseases. I hope this helps.

    Wednesday, October 5th 2011

    The fever is more to do with a persons temperature. A fever might be a symptom of a cold. Both are rude if you do it in public. However, it is natural, so just be discreet about it. It’s hard to say which one is ruder.

    Saturday, October 15th 2011

    a cold is a virus that one can catches as in a cold virus and it is also the illness attributed to being sick from it, like having a runny nose and a fever. A fever is associated to the highter than normal body temperature as your body reacts to the virus or illness.

Wednesday, April 16th 2014

Hi John

After I have read all the comments I want to thanks you for this wonderful lesson.
Utopia20 has had a nice subject about how to describe people behavior.
I meat a lot of people who think different and act definitely opposite( contrast) for what they say before.
Very nice advice” Trust your self not to think about what others say”
I enjoy your way to teach, really nice.
