    I want to pick a new language to study and hopefully one day master. Between these, which would be most interesting? Finnish, Afrikaans, Mandarin Chinese, or Russian?

  • In English, is it correct and normal to say "I write MUCH", "I study MUCH", "You ate MUCH", "You drank MUCH"?

    Best answer: No it is not common to say those. However the same is not true when asking a question. You can say "Do you write much?" (or "Do I write much?") / Did you eat much? / Did you drink much? / Did you sleep much? / Do you speak much? When answering or making a statement, we'd say "a... show more

    When answering or making a statement, we'd say "a lot":
    I write a lot, I study a lot, He speaks a lot/often, I slept a lot, You ate a lot, etc.

    Best answer: Hardcore is an adjective meaning that something is only for people who are very serious about that topic. Expect it to be more difficult than a non-hardcore version.

    Best answer: Hardcore is an adjective meaning that something is only for people who are very serious about that topic. Expect it to be more difficult than a non-hardcore version. It's basically like saying this is for experts.

    For instance, if someone offered an exercise class and said it was "hardcore", you can expect the workout to be very tough, and intended for people who are already in pretty good shape. It would NOT be a good idea for someone who is just starting to exercise to take this class.

    I'm writing the acknowledgements of my report and would like to thank my supervisor for his support and motivation. I want to write something along the lines of: "he may not be aware of it, but his patience and willingness to explain things to me really helped me stay motivated". Obviously this sounds too informal and casual. The first half feels like it's coming off too strong, but I would still like to mention the fact that he may not be fully aware of the impact he had, because that's really how I think he's feeling.
