Student or Learner
There is an excerpt from a reading matter which attracted my attention.
“It was already half-past seven in the morning and the city waking up. As I sent the car along, I could see pieces of fog floating up the street. I like to drive early in the morning. There is something about cruising in an empty cab with the fog coming up the street which gets me.”
I know that the sentence with the expression in bold (a slang) could be transformed in the following manner:
“There is something about cruising… that appeals to me.”
appeal (v) = to be attractive or interesting, as in:
The idea appeals to me.
Would you be kind enough to tell me your thoughts on the matter?
Thank you in advance for your efforts.
To know something don’t mean indispensably “understand” it. I don’t like goods that suit every taste. I don’t make do with very little.
Thank you for your prompt reply as well as for your penetrating explanation.You exponded me with competence the airy notion of using the present slang.
Thank you again for your kindness.
Thank you for your active backing.
It is obvious that you understand me perfectly. You know I am self-taught a few-years English student. Very often the words in my mouth are from different sources, sometimes knowledgable somethimes not to such an extent. This accounts for the presence of so much foolish mistakes and gross blunders in my posts.
Thank you again for your Slavic love of mankind.
