Hello British council teachers
)The error won't become a mistake until to refuse to correct it)
I heard this quotation form motivational speaker (prince Ea) and I have been wondering
Does the error is part of the mistake
I would be greatful if u explain the deference between them and if the there is no difference why don't he said the error won become error and vice virtue.


I'm afraid I can't help you with this. This is an example of a speaker trying to be creative with the language and invent definitions for the purposes of his presentation. In most contexts, error and mistake have essentially the same meaning, with mistake perhaps sounding less serious or consequential.

To find out what this particular speaker meant by his comment you would have to ask him, or watch his presentation in which he presumably explains it.

Hi Team,

I am reading an article about eggs. I do not understand this sentence '(Egg) Not harmful for heart health? A serious claim, no doubt, but does it withstand scrutiny?'
what does 'does it withstand scrutiny?' mean?.

Hello Kenny Alan,

The phrase 'does it withstand scrutiny' means 'will it [the claim] be convincing/tru when we check it'.

I usually go to the doctor once a year, to routine exames. I don’t like it, but I know it’s necessary.
And I need to go to the dentist, but I always forget to make an appointment (a little lazy too) and I never go.

I visit the doctor when I am ill and the doctor will give me some medicine.Sometimes an injection is given by a nurse for better and faster recovery.

I´ve been seen the doctor and dentist regularly twice a year for check-ups for me it is ok , but sometimes it is boring , but necessary .
I have got high blood pressure and cholesterol that is why I´ve been taken four tablets every day so far

I have ever used all this things. The most I used is plaster because it's quite easy to hurt hitself during daily life. I have never be admit at hospital more than one day, fortunately!
I don't mind going to the doctor on the other side, I have a real horror to visit my dentist. It's scared me too much.

Hello everybody! I am a doctor, so I use this medical terms every day. I have to practice, because I must remember it: X-ray, plaster, injection, medicine etc. This lesson was very important for me.

I feel good when going to the hospital. Actually, I had surgery 3 times.
I had eye surgery, bowel survey and appendicitis surgery.
