Dear Teachers,

1. You suck up!

- What does this mean?

2. What's the difference between "bricklayer" and "mason"?

3. - What time do you usually go to churches / go to a church?

- What time do you usually go to pagodas / go to a pagoda?

- Are these natural?

4. A: Have you had breakfast yet?

B: "no, I haven't" or "not yet"

"Yes, I have" or "already"

- Are these answers natural?

5. You have to learn to face up to the fact that Life somtimes does not always go your way.

- Is this natural?

Thanks very much to Teachers,

StevenukdDear Teachers,

1. You suck up!

- What does this mean? You say what the person wants to hear to be seen favorably by that person.

2. What's the difference between "bricklayer" and "mason"? I'm not sure - did you look it up? Mason implies more skill, and perhaps they carve stone, while a bricklayer obviously lays the bricks.

3. - What time do you usually go to churches / go to a church? What time do you usually go to church? (singular, no article)

- What time do you usually go to pagodas / go to a pagoda?

- Are these natural?

4. A: Have you had breakfast yet?

B: "no, I haven't" or "not yet"

"Yes, I have" or "already" All except "already"

- Are these answers natural?

5. You have to learn to face up to the fact that Life somtimes does not always go your way.

- Is this natural? Very close. But no capital on "life" and "sometimes" and "does not always" are redundant. Either "life sometimes doesn't go your way" or "life doesn't always go your way."

Thanks very much to Teachers,

Stevenukd.

A bricklayer builds walls and buildings using pre-made bricks.

A mason works with real stone and can carve, engrave, and shape it as required.

A mason is far more highly skilled and the two jobs do not overlap. Masons do not lay bricks. Bricklayers do not carve stone.
