I think this one is better.
This is the life I can't make a living out of.
Is there another way by which I can say the same thing in a more appropriate, better and usual way ?

I can´t make a living from this life. However, to a native english speaker it is still strange. What exactly are you trying to express?

Hello SonuKumar,

I think something like 'This is the life I can't make a living from' might be better, but it's hard to say if it would be appropriate or even make sense without knowing the context and the style which you are aiming for.

Thank you very much for your reply.
I think the prepostion 'In' will also work here and another way to say the same thing is I can't make a living out of, from or in this life.
But I got the point you made in the last comment about context.

Thank you once again.
Best wishes

Hello, dear teacher!!!

Please, could you explain this simole sentence for me:

I'm sorry but she's just kind of lost interest in buying the car.

In this sentence where "she's" is "s" of has or is?

and is "lost" participle or past simple(verb or adjective)?

What elemet do normally follows after "kind of", i mean verb, adjective, noun?

Hello Yerlan,

In your sentence she's is a contracted form of she has. The verb lost is a past participle. Together this forms the present perfect (she's lost = she has lost), which is used because the action took place in the recent past and has a result which is relevant now (she owns a new car).


Kind of is a very flexible phrase and can be used before many different types of word:

He's kind of nice. [before an adjective]

He kind of ran away. [before a verb]

It's kind of a family tradition. [before a noun]
