Misused English Words Part 1

Viewed 2618 times 2017-5-13 05:14 |Personal category:English|System category:News| different, something, receive, English, similar


Accept vs. Except

These two words sound similar but have very different meanings. Accept means to receive something willingly: “His mom accepted his explanation” or “She accepted the gift graciously."

Except signifies exclusion: “I can attend every meeting except the one next week.

 To help you remember, note that both except and exit begin with ex. Exit means 'to go out.'

    Until the Chinese change the methods used to teach English by Chinese teachers and get rid of 99% of the poor foreign teachers. Maybe 5% of the Chinese will master English.Maybe. Taliking how and actually doing it are very different.

    No one should destroy other property. But maybe 10% of students in the USA use them to learn. Can lead a horse to water but can not make them drink it. Same with computers. Can tell them they should but 90% or more willl not.
