Student or Learner
Hello. Can somebody help me?
I say: I used to go to school by car. (everyday in the past I sat into a car and I went to my school, but now I don't go by car)
and I can also say: I'm used to going to school by car. (now it's my habit, to take a car)
Or is it: I'm used to go.....?
And by the way, is the word: encourageous correct?(it should mean encouraged or something like that) Sentence: So people, be ____________(encourage)-make a noise!
Thank you! :)
-- I am used to going to school by car.
-- Regarding your 2nd question, you probably mean courageous which means brave.
e.g. He is a courageous man = brave man.
Encouragement, courage (noun)
The statement is trying to get a group of people to make some noise in order to encourage someone else/some other people. The purpose of making noise is encouragement. So they are asked to "be encouraging".
It has nothing to do with courage or courageous.
I understood it like this:
The whole article was about group, where nobody could play an instrument really well. They were called The Really Bad Band, or something like that, I don't remember it exactly. Next, there were some sentences about they career: First they played in garages, then they had their first performance on a stage where all the visitors were just friends and family. Now they have an album and they make lots of performances. I understood the end as: People, come on, make a noise, we didn't know how to play and look at us!
My teacher said there must be word "encourageous", but I didn't find it in my dictionary. I thought there should have been encouraged.
"Be encouraging" means "Encourage someone else" so "encouraging" is the adjective.
Doesn't "encouraged" mean "to be brave enough to do something"?
If someone is very scared of something, you can encourage them and try to make them braver and do the thing.
If a tennis player is not playing very well in a match, his supporters will encourage him by cheering and shouting and clapping. Hopefully, this will make him play better.
