5 This is where I stopped watching the movie.

10 sentences I'm pretty sure all correct

1) no

2) ok

3) ??

4) A QUARTER/ 25% will be a better choice.

5) ok but needs polishing.

6) Unless you wan to imply that you are high-class, be careful how you use "low class".

7) 7 He can appear behind you in a blink of an eye, and he can disappear just as fast.

8) She's always sticking me [like glue].....

9) What little I had I gave to her./The little I had I gave to her. BOTH
10) She looks identical to your old girlfriend? Is this a question? I see a statement. Otherwise, ok

To sum it up, your confidence is a little premature.
1) no (I'm pretty sure this form is ok?) (never does he apologize for anything he does.)
2) ok
3) ?? (you can tell before you're done drawing that it's going to be a masterpiece)
4) A QUARTER/ 25% will be a better choice.
5) ok but needs polishing. (POLISHING? how?)
6) Unless you wan to imply that you are high-class, be careful how you use "low class". (would it be OF/APART OF THE LOWER CLASS though?)
7) 7 He can appear behind you in a blink of an eye, and he can disappear just as fast.
8) She's always sticking me [like glue].....
9) What little I had I gave to her./The little I had I gave to her. BOTH (why is the second wrong?) you can say : I gave her the little I had left. CAN'T YOU?
10) She looks identical to your old girlfriend? Is this a question? I see a statement. Otherwise, ok

thank you Anon
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
1) I don't know if yours is technically incorrect, (except for "it it", which i assume is a typo) but certainly "It never works when you need it to" would be much more common.
2) okay except for capitalization
3) (based on your explanation) You can tell (even) before you're done.... (not "down")

4) one fourth
5) fine
6) part of (not "apart of")

7) okay (Although I would leave out "behind you" -- is that the only place he can appear?)

8) NO. She's always sticking with me/hanging around me/following me around.

9) both okay

10) fine (reminds me of a song lyric -- "Somebody told me that you had a boyfriend who looked like the girlfriend that I had in February of last year.")
Hello Khoff,

How are you? Hope all is ok

I had a quick question

She is of the higher class.
She s part of the higher class.

How would you phrase those? Are they both natural please?

Thank you
Hi Alex. I don't know what you mean here -- do you mean that she is in a more advanced group in school, (calculus rather than algebra?) or an older group (12th grade rather than 10th grade?), or that she belongs to a more privileged class socially?

Next time, please start a new thread instead of adding on to one that's several years old and about a completely different subject.

Ok I'm sorry,

I'm talking "socially"?

How would you say it please?

Now that you mention it, how would you say it if you were talking about grades and advanced groups?

Thank you Khoff and sorry again

Good day to you
