Articles with one training picture cause ambiguous feelings. On the one hand, how nice that a one pictures, because it is much easier to remember, on the other hand - I want more :)

Статьи с одной обучающей картинкой вызывают двойственные ощущения. С одной стороны, как хорошо что немного картинок, ведь та намного проще запомнить, а с другой стороны – хочется еще:)


Ya, when I upload only one, I wonder if you and others will be disappointed. But when I upload 10-20, I wonder if you guys will be angry, cuz you cannot learn 20 prefixes and 50 words in one day!!!! ☺


50 per day - this is exactly bust :)

50 в день - это точно перебор:)

Teaching is the most humble and respected profession.
are you a teacher?


I was a teacher, for about 20 years. ESL in Japan, and SAT writing and reading in Canada.

you are just love <3
I really like the work you are doing.

Focus which is which 😂
Most Filipinos interchange P and F.
Pronouncing a word that starts with P into F or vice versa.


Like when you say the "Pili-Fines"? ;-)


Exactly! Watch this video.
Enjoy 😊


Thanks, very interesting.

very good post thanks for sharing this i really need such kind of post keep it up thank you very much

Lovely! Fore prefixes I'm familiar with. Thank you!

this great post ...
I appreciate your post thanks for sharing..

Great work as always..
Expanding my vocabulary

Thanks for sharing great information keep it up God bless you

Those words are all very uncommon. I haven't used the prefix fore at all!

"I forethought an assembly regarding diseases on forelegs of wild wolves, forecasting the issues brought up in the foreword of the book of that famous veterinary"


Well, NOW you have used it... several times. By the way, "forethought" is used only as a noun, not a verb.

p.s. After upvoting all the entrants, my voting power was low, so I'm not upvoting for a few days. ...

This is something I can definitely use! My English is just basic and everytime when I read articles of other steemians, I get a little jealous on their English skills and the way how they can play with words and expressions. Next time, I will try to use in every article some new words!


Don't be jealous. Like most Dutch or northern Europeans, your English is superb. When I read your written English, I believe you are a native speaker.

At the same time, you can continue learning, so, please do try to use the new words that you see in the Vocab-ability posts.


Native speaker is a little bit too much! Lately, I travelled with an Dutch classmate and she kept repeating all my grammar mistakes, that were quite a lot of faults! I am glad auto correction helps me a bit. I keep following your English lessons!


That sounds like a great way to learn.... by your mistakes! In a sense, that's the way children learn, right?

They say whatever they can, do communicate whatever has to be communicated. They make many, many mistakes, but by the age of 6 or so, they can speak the language quite correct.

Hope you make as rapid progress!!
All the best.

Oo f series ...
