    With no? A wino is a drunk or alcoholic, so it's hard to work out how that works. What's the context?

    He was a good pupil at primary school: in the second class he was writing wino mistakes and the third and fourth class were done in a single year.

    It could be but it's about school and what he writes.
    Isn't it?
    And also is Your place was green true?

    It is- I was joking. I don't understand the 'your place was green' sentence- where did you see this?

    It was like when you are somewhere that some other person isn't there. You have a really great time there and then u say him: Your place was green.
    I ask if it's true or not?
    I don't know. I've heard it somewhere!!

    Re: Wino ...

    I haven't heard it used. I've heard 'your place was empty', meaning that they were missing and could have been there.

    I thought it has to be in that way.
