Got 86. James, why does the word rough is considered to be a more negative word?

Thursday, November 9th 2017

    When you say that someone is tough on you,that person is doing the things difficult to you, but at the same time, that’s good for you, because make you better. On the other hand, when someone is rough on you, it’s not better to you, it’s only harder. I guess that’s the answer to your question. Anyway, whatch the video again, and you won’t be in doubt about it, I’ll do it.

I think , a more negative Word should be the word tough due to its meaning.

Hi! i would like to lern english language and to be best speaking and writing. i am from Mozambique and my official language is Portuguese, now i am looking for places to learn English! i used to watch the video lesson here but i need to talk with some one and to make better my English!is there some else to help me?

Thursday, November 23rd 2017

    Hello Tomas! How are you?

    I am from Brazil, and my mother tongue is Portuguese too, as I am sure you know. Anyway, I also like practising and interacting with foreigners so as to improve my English skills. Skype is a wonderful tool to make this dream true in an easy and cheap way! If you’ve got an account on Skype, let me know it and I will add you in a group about English Chat if you want.

    Regards from Rio de Janeiro!

Tuesday, December 18th 2018

I am always hard on my self. Some people are helpful to me and always try to support and other people are kind to me where they feel how I am struggling with English . I met some people who were cruel and rude to me.my teacher was rough on me but my father was tough on me. meanwhile my mother was easy on me. I stopped to be selfish about my self and right now I am crazy about helping others .the people who are mean about me are out of my life and the only people in my life who are kind about me.

Monday, December 24th 2018

I GOT 100% AND HAPPY ABOUT it. I need to practice more on the same topic for academic purpose, and for that need a bigger quiz bank. Please help.

Thursday, May 7th 2020

its hard, I’ve been struggled in those two. the “to and on”

Monday, May 11th 2020

Very confusing. He explains the meaning of the words, same we can check in dictionary, rather than the logic of prepositions. For example: what is a REAL difference between TO and On: hard ON someone, rude TO someone – same meaning of ‘direction’.
There are too much of ‘jokes’ and other stuff in the lesson.
