Explanation! – Difficult sentence of the week (10/14/19) Levels 2+

Last week I showed you this sentence:

“Yes, English can be weird. It can be understood through tough, thorough thought though.”

Let’s see if we can understand it piece by piece.

  • English can be weird → English is strange / English has rules that are difficult to understand
  • It can be understood → You CAN understand English!
  • through → by
  • tough → hard / difficult
  • thorough → completely done / well done / detailed
  • thought → thinking / studying
  • though → however / but

All together we can say something like this:

“Yes, English can be difficult to understand. But, you can understand it by studying hard and doing your best!”

I hope that was a little bit easier to understand! If you didn’t get it, don’t worry, next time we’ll try an easier one. Or ask me about it in class!
