Hi, guys. This is Rosa Akino. We have some great things and stories today.
Hi, everyone. Chris McVay here, and it’s a real pleasure for us to be with you everyday. So let’s keep going together.
So some shares the same translation with “several”. Can you use several in the same sentence?
No, it wouldn’t make sense, right.
Because just like some, I mean, not giving a specific number, but several in the case of several, we have in mind specific indevisual examples. Even though we don’t want to say exactly.
Chris, what is the nuance of some in “Would you like some coffee?”
Well, I think, you know, it adds a nice, warm and friendly touch to the question. Like, oh, it’s no trouble at all. What do you think, Rosa?
I think so too. It’s kind of like some makes it presented on a pillow, you know, here you go.
Nice and soft.
You know, guys. I really enjoyed today’s lesson.
Chris, you’re such good company.
We should have dinner some day.
Some day? How about tonight?
Um, tonight, no good. Some day!
