    Re: Vocabulary

    :) Suggestion :)

    I'd like to test something out, if you wouldn't mind. The next time you post multiple choice sentences, I wonder if you could post the sentences first and then post the answers later. In this way, you'll get a chance to see what native speakers would actually use/say in the contexts given. :)

    All the best,

    Thank you for your suggestion. If it doesn't bother you teachers, I can certainly do so.

    So my guess at the meaning of that expression is the correct one?
