What Magda means with " I got my master’s degree with a distinction!"?

Hi Roseane,

When we speak about marks or grades, 'with (a) distinction' means that the work was of very high quality. If you follow the link, you can see another couple examples.

Hello English Learning World, I have a question in the next sentence,
Bindyu: [...], that’s very kind of you
Is it possible to answer: very kind from you?

Hello jpkeiros,

No, I'm afraid 'of' is the only correct preposition here. But we do use 'of' in 'It's nice to hear from you' and some other expressions.

Many thanks Kirk.

Fadi: You can talk to me if he doesn’t show up!
In this sentence I don't understand the meaning of "if he doesn’t show up"

Hello daizykiran,

'show up' is an extremely common phrasal verb -- please check the dictionary for words you don't know.

Hi Kirk,
It`s nice to be here and study with you. I have a question to ask here. Most of time we should not use preposition in front of "here".But why you use "in here" in this text?
Thanks!

Hello lussysong,

It's true that 'here' is also correct (and more common) than 'in here' in this context, but 'in here' is also OK. 'in here' can be a bit more specific, referring to the inside of the café, for example. To be honest, I'm not sure why Fadi and Bindyu say it here, as I would probably just use 'here'. I hope that is clear! If not, please let us know.

All the best,
Kirk
