My answer looks different from other --"

1.
- HAVE a suggestion
- ANALYZE trends
- PREDICT the future

2.

- VASTLY IMPROVE = improve a lot
- SIGNIFICANT = put into effect
- INEXPENSIVE = cheap
- DAY-TO-DAY/DAILY = every day

Also, I don't understand the phrase of "don't get me wrong". Could you please give me more example to use this phrase?


Not at all, I don't understand your question about grammar
"Which verbs does the speaker use with the following nouns?"
Why did you use "does" in this question?

Ps. I realize that I can better understand when I see sub but why I can not understand at all when I am listening. Can you diagnose my problem?

Thank you

Q1.

1. have
2. analyze
3. predict
5. vastly improve
6. easily to implement
7. inexpensive
8. day-to-day life/ daily basis

have a suggestion

improve a lot = vastly improve
put into effect = implement
cheap = inexpensive (just guess, because i did not get it)
every day = day to day

have a suggestion
analyzing the trend
predicting the future
vastly improve = improve a lot
daily = every day

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1.
- have a suggestion
- analyse / analyze trends
- predict the future

(I've put the infinitive forms, but he did use some 'ing' forms)

2.
- vastly improve
- implement
- inexpensive
- on a daily basis

Hi Nina,

"don't get me wrong" means "please don't misunderstand what I'm saying"

"Which verbs does the speaker use with the following nouns?" - the word "does" belongs to the word "speaker" (e.g. What does the speaker say?)

You just need to do more listening practice. It's normal to understand less without subtitles, but this is the reason for these exercises. Try to watch each video several times, first with subtitles, then without, then repeat again and pause the video to take notes.

Hi Penguin,

I'm glad you found the site.

"below are" is correct.
