The fact that Turkish is not an easy language for you ´us´ to study ´if for nothing then sentence order is enough´ makes that English is NOT an easy language for him to study too
sentence order,Prepositions not easy for him to use
Not to mention the language logic is not also same.

According to Dictionary.com the word ´gotton/gotten´ is a pp of ´got´.

I´ve heard it´s used in the US, perhaps Yilgun has too.

Exactly! Not proper English - do you teach your pupils to say ´gotton´??

And pp of ´got´? what? as in ´I got a cold´ - meaning ´I have a cold´ or ´I got top marks´

Allah Allah!! My English teacher would turn in her grave (again!) ´lol´´lol´

I would never use the word myself and yes it´s not used in England. However there are many words in the Oxford English Dictionary now that we members of a certain age would not agree with. Language is evolving all the time, probably why we don´t speak like Chaucer anymore.

My original explanation wasn´t aimed at Yilgun, it was aimed at LIR because I don´t think it´s fair to pick at people´s use of language in a public place, when they are learning. A pm would have done the trick. Also, I have a feeling her comment about it was poking fun, as some people tend to do where Yilgun is concerned.

I´m surprised LIR didn´t notice the use of the American spelling of the noun "license" rather than the English "licence". In the English language, "license" is the verb.

That should be:

"OK you´ve gotten your point across!"
