Teach and Learn English

Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss

Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss


This is one of those books that one should read over and over again and to quote Newsweek review of it, you could say “You don’t need to be a grammar nerd to enjoy it.” I have bought it by accident in NY only because I found its cover really intriguing.






The book is about punctuation and proves that it really matters a lot where a comma is placed in a sentence.

5 IDIOMS WITH MIND


5 IDIOMS WITH MIND

Dzisiaj będzie trochę o MIND, czyli o umyśle. 

MIND to też oczywiście rozum. Pytając kogoś-
"What was in your mind?" pytamy: "Co ty sobie myślałeś?"

PEACE OF MIND to po angielsku ‘spokój ducha’, a jeśli coś jest AT THE BACK OF YOUR MIND, to jest ‘w głębi serca’- "At the back of my mind I had a lot of doubts" (W głębi serca miałem dużo wątpliwości). Można też coś mieć na umyśle, tzn. HAVE SOMETHING ON YOUR MIND, czyli myśleć o czymś intensywnie, zaprzątać sobie głowę myślami – "What do you have on mind?" (Czym sobie zaprzątasz głowę?)

MIND to też inteligencja lub intelekt. Powiedzieć możemy np. "He has a very good mind", czyli – "On jest bardzo inteligentny".
