Lesson 15
Dear Friend,

Do you know the difference between an appointment and a date? Well, Sue talks about this in one OF her audio sessions which you will find below. I can tell you that much: one of the words describes a private rendezvous while the other is a formal meeting. By the way, you probably have noticed that English contains a lot of French words and rendezvous is one of them. The French are partly to blame for the fact that English words are usually quite difficult to spell. Especially on our forum I frequently see English users struggle with spelling mistakes. You can easily avoid them by using Firefox, a web browser that allows you to install an excellent spell checker.

Another problem English learners are facing is when to use ''say'' and when to use ''tell''. That''s why Alan has written a brilliant test that consists of 10 say/tell questions and you''ll find the link below. As usual, I look forward to hearing from you on the forum. Oh, one last thing: Some of you have asked me to send them more difficult materials because they are advanced English learners. I''m curious to know how you define "advanced"? To me, an advanced learner knows how to type without spelling errors and how to use an Internet forum. Also, advanced English learners review what they have already learned to make sure they have really got the basics right. Someone who forgets to start a sentence with a capital letter and to end a sentence with a full stop is not an advanced learner but only thinks so. Anyway, if you think you qualify for the "advanced category", please click here.

And before I forget, here is the difference between appointment and date and here is the say/tell test.

See you on the forum.
