Thanks a lot. It was nice to watch the Video. 9 rights is a good rate I think. Though I must admit, it’s difficult to understand your English.

Cool lesson. I wrote two sentences and I am not sure if they are correct.
1. My computer is OUTDATED, so I need to buy another one to write my master’s thesis.
2. OF LATE I have slept too long because I am unemployed.
Sb can help me?

    for writing ?! really? what is your computer? what do you study?
    I think “lately” is better for number 2.

Sometimes I like to wear old fashioned clothes and walk and see people expressions.some like it. for example blackboard an chalks are out dated but when I use them, it makes me feel warm I don’t know why.Nowadays everything changes very fast even each year has it’s own style.these days fashion designers don’t care about comfort and healthy that much.I’m gonna use ancient Persian colors this week. Each day has a color and I would go green this Monday and white for Friday and ….., yes life is colorful and shiny with Great teachers specially you James you know that I love you.

Hi! I really like this page, so i’m going to pick a lesson or maybe more than one every day. I’m going to leave my comment if it doesn’t mind :), if you wanna talk to me, it would be fine to me
so here’s my comment
My laptop 2501 from 2000’s is old fashioned
I thought, it was old fashioned studied english, but it’s not.
My grandma told us about her teenage old fashioned stories.
Taylor swift’s music from 2006 is old fashioned
My last christmas had been old fashiones since we’d watched Home Alone.
I’m so tired of my mom’s old fashioned music
And that’s it, i hope you can help, i would be so grateful to you
bye, greetings :)

Thanks, James. Wonderful lesson, as usual. But I clearly dont see differences between “lately” and “of late”. If someone can explain me, it will be great :)

Profile photo of IvSh IvSh

    I have the same question😅

    Profile photo of ProProPro2411 ProProPro2411

      i am confused about it too, but looked again the sentence about of late, looks like it is closer to past more then lately. Cause after using of late, we see a lot thing happened in his friends life before saying that.

Hi, James. Your lessons are awesome.
Writing letters by hands is a old-fashioned way to communicate and people usually don’t use it in daily basis. Instead of that, people nowadays write to others on special days or for important events, which is a good way to present their wishes and sincereness. Hand-written letters are not totally obsolete that could be used for a new purpose. From my point of view, I believe that the latest communication tool is instant messaging applications such as Facebook and Snapchat. To be honest, I actually want to check my phone now because I am waiting for my friend’s reply. I just asked her if she can hang out with me this Sunday. If not, we can only meet two weeks from now since I will not be in here next week.
