    check it!

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

    "All the homework is the same as the classwork."

    In my dialect, it is more common to say, "All of the homework..."

    Because I said that his stated phrase was exactly the way I would say it then he said that he takes it as a compliment meaning that he appreciates that I know that he understands good English.

    Example

    [She]I wish my nose was straighter, I had an accident when I was a child and although the nose was broken and reset you can still see it is a little crooked.

    [He] If you hadn't told me I would not have noticed, but I can see now what you are saying. I think because of your experience you are more understanding of imperfections and you are more considerate of others with minor faults. I also think that your nose makes you all the more interesting as well.

    [She] Well, I'll take that as a compliment then.

    Wow! What a great explanation! I could never have explained him the way you did so, Keiran.
