Hi,Gill.
I took this lesson while reviewing your last lesson about metaphor. They mean making a connection between two different thing. Simile uses “as” or “like” but metaphor doesn’t. Thanks for your helpful lesson!

Thank you very much! Your lesson made me think of other examples:

And of course the prosecuting phrase in ‘a hard day’s night’: I should be sleeping like a log!

Liberroad

Hi Teacher. your lessons are very useful. Thank you very much indeed.
Please tell me, the situations we use present perfect tense. had, have when should we use them.
Thank you…

manusha

    We use The Present Perfect Tense for the actions that started at a definite point in the past, and still last, their effect is felt in the present. E. g. I’ve bought a car (recently, today). We have lived in America for 20 years (we came to America 20 years ago, and we are still there). Hope this helps.

Thank you teacher nice lesson, and i have to say that you have a beautiful voice and i sang the song with you.
Thanks again!.

Dario7

Thank you Gill. Could you please teach us the difference between the following verbs: to switch,to change and to exchange? I sometimes get confused with these verbs. Thank you so much in advanced!:)

Carlsbad

    There is not a lot of difference between switch and change, but to exchange means to swap, it’s an act of giving one thing and receiving another. E. g. They exchanged phone numbers. So, A person gave his/her phone number to B person, and vice versa.

    vladandevla

Thanks Gill! It was a very useful lesson.

Thanks 4 ur lesson. Ur lessons were as clear as crystal clear

dr507

Thank you so much! Your lesson has been precious like a prise…!

lucascotti

Hello and thanks fot your precious teachings. I’ve got two questions not related to this topic but to one of Shakespeare’s poem from play “Love’s Labor’s Lost”.
1st question: what’s the meaning of the name of this play?
2nd: in one verse he says:” When blood is nipped and ways be faul” what’s the grammatical point of ‘be’ in this verse?
I’ll be thankful if you answer!

hoseinkeshavarz

    Hi Hosein — thanks for your question. Love’s Labour’s Lost means people who have wasted their time loving someone because the love was not returned. In other words, their labour (of love) was lost or wasted. The play involves courtship and temporary rejection, but everything seems to work out ok in the end ;-) Your quotation is from a song about the winter — the idea of blood being nipped is when you feel physically cold, and your blood feels as if it’s freezing. Foul ways means roads and pathways which are muddy etc and therefore difficult to travel through, again because of the bad weather. The use of ‘be’ is rather old-fashioned — it’s from the verb ‘to be’, but nowadays we would say ‘ways ARE foul’. I hope this is helpful :-)

    Gill

      Thank you, yes it was very helpful

      hoseinkeshavarz

Thank you very much! You are good to sing!

Katerina Savchenko

    “You are good at singing” is correct, and you, Katerina, are very beautiful, I can be your teacher anytime you want :3 :*

    vladandevla

Once again thank you very much. I’ve got 100% in test. I will sing the song to my children :)
Greetings from Poznań from Poland :)

Barkha29

You are a very good teacher

chinyen

Hello egain, l’ve got another question from you,
In my language, persian, there are some old poets and writers and also some new belletrists and orators who use old-fashioned grammer and vocabulary, I think for example like Shakespeare for you, and they’re not only understandable for me most of time but also lovely and containing great treasures in themselves, and my question is that whether this is true for English language and are there those in your language who still speak and write that way and people like their style?

hoseinkeshavarz

Thank you.

pafsilipoclub

Thanks for the help, Gill. Your explanation was as clear as water! And I love your accent!

Lovely teachers, I have a suggestion for you. Upgrading the site won’t do us any damage, what do you say? We don’t receive any notification when someone replies to out comments, that could be the first thing to do concerning the upgrade. I hope you will consider my proposition. Thank you.

vladandevla

    I totally agree with you.

    hoseinkeshavarz

      I came up with a new idea on the spot. I realized I made a mistake in the comment I wrote above, those who read it will notice, and there is no way to correct it, so it makes me write another comment in the sequence. Adding the option “Edit your comment” would be a great thing, don’t you think? Come on guys, consider this message ASAP, we really do need the upgrade. Thx!

      vladandevla

      Glad I have a supporter, hoseinkeshavarz!

      vladandevla

        Me too !

to evite/avoid the paradox we can say ”the explenation is as clear as a window not mud”? (after you tell me what is mud mean).

LucianV

    Mud is wet dirt, which is not transparent at all.

I just have a question regarding this; you said that similes are quite like idioms, so are all similes fixed like idioms? …….. Can’t I compare someone’s eating to an animal other than pig, for example??? And can other actions of somebody be compared to the same animal???
Thaaaanks.

ng51

Hi Gill, thanks for the lesson. I just watched the lesson about metaphors and have two questions. First one: how do I choose which one to use (simile or metaphor)? For example:
– He is a pig or He is like a pig.
– She is an angel or She is like an angel.
Second one:
Can I say: they are fighting like catS and dogS? Do I have to use always singular?
Thanks in advance
