Thank you.

Yes, you are right – the Norman Invasion. But also from the Latin parts of the language, which the Romans brought – so English and French share a common base. To reckon – it’s a bit like to estimate, to predict how something will go – if that helps?

Good morning
Thanks for your explanation. I already know the meaning of to reckon. I first meet that word when I read Huckleberry field, thus the importance of reading a lot in English.In fact I mention it because I was surprise you did not.
A good thing for your podcasts will be to bring more variety. If you could add conversations with friends, members of family. It’s nice to listen to you but there is a difference between listening somebody reading something and people chatting together.
Anyway keep on and thanks a lot of your podcasts.

I first met that word and not meet. It’s 12.23 here in French I’m hungry it must be the explanation to this mistake.
