I just remembered it that our company's 10th anniversary is today.

Can we say like this?

Clive,

Why are you answering questions I already answered? Seems like a waste of our valuable time for both of us to be answering the same question.

Also - if you answer is the same as mine, why is it promoted to be 'the answer' whereas mine is just left as a comment?

Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.

There's a one-minute gap between your answers. Clive couldn't possibly know about your answer when he posted his, because he didn't see it. This is a very common phenomenon and has happened to me dozens of times. Some of us sometimes add the comment CROSS-POSTED, but very often I just don't bother because it's so obvious to everyone anyway.

I don't know. I find that confusing, too.

Cheers, Clive

Having to stay home due to the global pandemic, I thought I would use my time to help others - namely, to help ESL learners. But, it appears there is already plenty of help (from you, Clive, and others) and, perhaps I should find another online site to volunteer my time. (It just seems a waste of our time to be answering the same questions )

Any suggestions of a website where my help as a native speaker and teacher can be more helpful?

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

I don't find there is as much overlap as you might think. And when there is, I quite like to read other people's responses as they often come at the question from a different point of view. I think the learners benefit from that, too.

I'm going to pass your comments "upstairs" to people who have a higher pay-grade, so please stick around for a while.

No, sorry.

Clive,

Thanks for your feedback. Perhaps when tapping the higher-ups you can ask them why certain comments get elevated to an official answer even if another's comment is exactly the same. (Like what happened with you and me.) I appreciate your take on learner's finding it useful for different responses from different teachers!

Scott

ps. Is there a way for me to get in touch directly with the higher-ups ?
