I have two children, he's a pest, Pedro is eleven years old and Lucca is four years old. Oh my God, they are terrible...

Aha...I am sure it is not a good idea to have business with friends. Thank you all :)

Hi..i would like to ask about What's the deference betwen this 2 words (few and bit)?

Hell Shtaewi,

'few' and 'bit' are words that can be used in more than one way, and seeing them in context (i.e. with the other words around them) is important to understanding them. You can find out more about them on our quantifiers page, but you're also welcome to ask us about a specific sentence that you've seen them in.

Hello Alex,

Fadi means that actually they could pay a bit more ('higher') than 2000 pounds.
