Hi, guys! Yes, money isn't everything, but you need some money to go on living (there may be exceptions like homeless people...). So we need to plan or work to make some money for living and after that we can pursue our own interests other than money. The point is the balance of both.

Dear Sir
Please make this clear? How many people have sent you a christmas card?Is it wrong to say: christmas cards without the article 'a'
Please let me know.

Hello Andrew international,

Both forms are grammatically correct, but 'a Christmas card' is probably better here, as 'Christmas cards' could suggest that each person sent you more than one card. That is certainly possible, but in most situations each person is probably sending you just one.

All the best,

Can you tell the meaning of sentence "There's got to be a catch.."? I cannot understand

Hell ThaiDoanHung,

The meaning is something like 'There must be some trick here'. It's used when a proposal seems too good to be true, and you are suspicious of some hidden aspect.

There are many online dictionaries which will provide you with definitions of such phrases. Simply type 'There's got to be a catch meaning' into your search engine and you will see many links.

Hello,Kirk. It is a funny lesson. but i have a problem with the word architect. I don't know how to speak. i try to listen more then twice. And still can't speak it. I can reading and writing,but most of time i don't know how to speak. Could you tell me how to do?

Hi , I think the problem is due to chinese people can´t pronounce the letter "R" as we see on word aRquitect , like japanese people can´t pronounce the letler "L"
