    Re: agree on and agree to

    I see. It is like a bonus because we seldom come across such expressions in our textbook. Very interesting.

    How should I reply to ' You always make my day'?

    Best wishes,

    One could say:

    I'm glad.
    I try.
    or just a :D

    :?
    Could you please tell me if there something more between the posts of Mike and you? In other words, does ' Of course' implies anything?

    No; it simply would be an arrogant and unacceptable answer.

    Hi, jiang,

    I read your articles too. You always bring up good questions that make me stop to think. I want to say thank you to you.



    To Mike, TDOL, RonBee:
    How nice of you to answer our STRANGE questions. IMO, if you are not teachers, it's hard to ask a native speaker to explain rules because they just use English in a natural way. For me, the logic is the most profound to get it. Through your explanation, I need to learn to FEEL English. And thank you for providing us with such a fantastic website.

    You always make my day as well.
    (hehehe...actually i don't know the exact meaning of this idiom, but i know when to use it. I'll appreciate it if you can explain a bit.)

    "To make someone's day" means "to make the day better, brighter, happier, etc. It is a compliment. :wink:
