Congratulations about the way to teach English language. It's very interesting and useful for foreigners.

Hi. This website very helpful, especially word on the street. Thank you very much.
I'm sorry I want to ask what the different meaning of " I'm so tired and I'm tired " ? or they have same meaning? Thanks before.

Hi niken.rizky,

In this context, the only difference is that 'so tired' is stronger.  'So + adjective' can be followed by a 'that' phrase telling us the result.  For example:

I'm so tired that I can hardly see the words on the page.

I'm so bored that I think I might fall asleep in a moment.

We often omit this part, leaving it to the listener's imagination.

Best wishes,

Hello everybody ! Word on the street is my favorite  segment of the site,so I come back again and again to watch these amazing videos.

Thanks Jeremy Bee!
Your advice is really helpfull ^^

Thanks its very useful.One thing i want to ask can we say "Ashile:I like football.Stephen:Me niether or too??
Neither is used in both sense like negative aur positve???

Hello Ashfaq!

We use too for positive sentences and neither for negative sentences:

A: I like football.     S: Me too!
A: I don't like baseball      S: Me neither!
But be careful! Even when the meaning is not good, if the grammar is positive, we still use too:
A: I hate shopping!       S: Me too!
And even if the meaning is good, but the grammar is negative (uses not), we use neither:

A: I don't mind waiting!      S: Me neither!
Hope that helps!
