Thank you very much, L.Rai, for your reply.

Do you mean that the conversation is not odd?


To answer that, yes, this is not an odd conversation...sorry I wasn't clear

Topic: Is learning a language a matter of a learner being smart

Dear A Cooperator:

I will do my best but this really isn't something I'm used to teaching. I don't really know this structure but here's my two cents from a native speaker POV.


1. Is learning a language a matter of a learner being smart? You could say this sentence and the other person will understand what you mean. It's structure is okay (in my opinion).

2. Yes, it is a matter of a learner being smart. You could say this one as well. It would be better to say "Yes, it is a matter of THE learner being smart. I feel this would make it clearer as to what was being answered to the previous question.

3. Is it a matter of being ungrammatical or something else? This sentence doesn't make sense to me because it feels like something is missing and there's no clear context. I am not sure what is meant by IT in this sentence. If you were to clarify the IT in this sentence then it could work...so "Is failure to learn a language a matter of being ungrammatical or something else?" Now with this context it makes more sense, at least to me.

4. Is it being stubborn a good feature? NO this sentence is just not working...again you need more context for the IT and then maybe it can work. Maybe, "Is being a stubborn language learner a good attribute?" I changed the word feature because it's just too vague and you really need to be clearer on what is meant by IT. When you don't have enough context it can be difficult to know what IT is.

Not sure if this is helpful, but it's my contribution...LOL

Dear Rnjb:

okay I will bite, I too was educated by the University of CA system and while I am a very "smart" person I sometimes can struggle to understand the "logic" with some websites. However this has never been one of them. On occasion points have been off or not work but the site doesn't take a PhD to navigate. Also I fail to understand why you had to sign up to use it. I have never had that issue. I can use the site easily even when I do not log-in so if all you wanted was to look up a word that would be very easy to do...put the word into the space provided and hit search. You can then look up that word in various ways including all the -onyms. I think if you provide more details to the moderators they will be able to help you..I have found them most helpful for most questions.

I hope you will not be deterred and try again. Maybe your computer was just having a "bad" day...

Lazarius:

I still like to "feel" a book...I had an OLD ipod but when I came to China and lost ALL my books one time because I got so interested I forgot to charge when it told me to charge I decided the "real" thing was much better. I can't lose the book unless I forget where I put it. Tech can be good but sometimes it's not practical.
