We set a new record this week – 79 comments! In some ways, that is a great thing, but I wonder whether it might put some people off reading because there are just too many of them. Anyway, that will be our topic for next week.
Here is some feedback on your comments.
Okay, but I found the expression “eat lunch out” in the Internet, too. I don’t think you are wrong.
I’m not sure about this. It sounds a bit weird to me. Someone might say it in conversation, but it’s not really standard English. Just “eat out” is fine, though.
My favourite part of the movie is the scene where
Scarlett, the heroine of the movie, knows she lost parents, home, everything
I think this should be “finds out that….” (A-Z: know / find out)
I’ll start working on Friday.
This is not wrong, but I would say “I start work on Friday” or “I’m starting work on Friday” if it is definite. (I hope it went well, by the way.)
weird candies that change flavor while licking
My favorite part of the video is the scene where Patrick Swayze jumps down the stage and
…jumps down off the stage
Then I noticed that a lot of people wanted to get shopping done before the typhoon came,
Then I realized that… (A-Z: notice / realize)
I also like the song “Unchanged melody” very much.
I think it is called “Unchained Melody.”
When it was aired on TV, she asked me to watch it with her, so I watched it.
Not wrong, but “… so I did” would be more natural.
Hayao Miyazaki seems to be a great geek for airplanes
“Geek” has quite a negative meaning, so maybe “Hayao Miyazaki seems to be really interested in airplanes” or “seems to have a thing about airplanes.”
But as far as I observe him watching English movies at home, he is always reading Japanese subtitles.
Whenever I watch him watching English movies at home, he always seems to be reading the Japanese subtitles.
I’d never seen this kind of movies(story of gangs and mafia) but a frind of mine from high school told me that I should see it.
This is a good example of correct usage of the past perfect tense.
Actually, I asked the same question to David before
Actually, I asked David the same question before
Meg Ryan is still cute even she is getting old.
Meg Ryan is still cute even though she is getting old. (A-Z: even if / even though) By the way, you might make some enemies on this blog if you write that 50 is “getting old”!
This is his first time to do a homestay
This is the first time he has done a homestay. (A-Z: first time)
My son : “Mom, what do you say バス in English?”
I hope you taught him the correct question! “How do you say バス in English”
But it’s hard for me to say the particular scenes where I like in them
But it’s hard for me to say which particular scenes I like because…
I remember when my sons were small, they made so cute mistakes.
They made such cute mistakes. (A-Z: so / such a)
I’m wondering if it is also illegal to post the links (from You Tube) on this blog, because some of the videos are illegally downloaded.
I don’t think so. It is You Tube’s responsibility to take down illegally posted content. The new law is aimed at stopping people downloading music, TV shows, and movies for their own use at home.
I wouldn’t notice what he mouthed if David didn’t tell us about that.
I wouldn’t have noticed what he mouthed if David hadn’t told us about it. (A-Z: if / when)
I deeply agree to what you say!
I strongly agree with what you say! (“Agree to” is only used when someone asks you to do something or when they suggest conditions for something like a contract.)
That’s it for today. Have a great long weekend, and I’ll be back with the new topic on Monday (or maybe Tuesday).
