Try guessing the meaning of the word

Yes, I mean you could try guessing the meaning of a word that is unfamiliar to you. In fact, that is one of the reading skills. That is, you can try to understand what a sentence or paragraph means without looking up the unfamiliar words in the dictionary. Try guessing the meaning of the words highlighted in bold:1. 'The patient's care may be jeopardized, and the patient may be harmed.'2. 'The health professional has a right to financial remuneration from the patient.'3. 'No one at that time…See More

About Expector

Hi Friends,

Welcome to my page! Do you like the above photos I took when I was travelling in China? And, did you enjoy listening to the music on my wall? I hope so.

I'm not really an English teacher, though I often help learners learn English. I love English, which is a fantastic language and now a global one. I like to write and read blogs. I hope you can check out my blogs below - don't forget to leave your comment there and I'll respond.

I love MyEC. It's a great honour to be a moderator here. I'll do my best to help keep MyEC interesting, friendly and decent. I'd like to thank Josef and Tara for offering me such an opportunity to be a member of the excellent team here.

Enjoy!
