由紀先生、今日は。

ああ、なるほど。 笑

I undersand - yes, that was really the wrong way to thank for the lesson :D

I will try to remember using the plain form - maybe I am too frightened of using it, thinking it might sound rude.

「いろいろな」だと覚えています。 I will also keep in mind using いろいろ as na-adjective.

簡単ではありませんが、僕はがんばります。 :smile:

教えてくれてどうもありがとうございます! :thumbsup:

ミハイルさん、

こんにちは。

そうですか。「一石二鳥」が使えたらいいですね。

By the way, can I give you advice of our sentences?

Before と思います you have to put plain form for example, 便利だと思います.

レッスンを聞いてくれてどうもありがとうございます means “thank you very much for listening to lessons.”

We should say to that to you.

“Thank you very much for this lesson” means “このレッスンをどうもありがとうございます.”

Plain form verbs must be put before こと.

いろいろ is often used as na-adjective.

いろいろな漢字を読んでいることは…

:smile:

みなさん、今日は。

「一期一会」とは素敵なことわざですね。

けど、リアルには、「一石二鳥」と言うことは便利ですと思います。

Hello everyone,

I find that "Treasure every encounter, as it never occurs, again" is a beautiful saying.

But, for (use in) reality, "Two birds with one stone" would be more useful, in my opinion.

Meaning: I can imagine, using rather this in a real conversation, soon, than the other idioms.

I really have to get way much better to be using those idioms, one day :D

レッスンを聞いてくれてどうもありがとうございます。

いろいろの漢字を読んでいますことは楽しくて面白いです。

But thank you very much for this lesson - even seeing the combined use of Kanji is very interesting!

Hi J.D.


Thank you for your comment and feedback.

Actually, the information on the cards is the same you can find on the screen (at the same time, she shows the physical cards). However, we will consider your suggestion.

Please, let us know if you have questions regarding our lessons.
