Q: Hi, could anyone tell me the meaning of the phrase which highlighted in this passage ?
Thanks !! とはどういう意味ですか?
A: okay so this line is talking about the interior decor.
"The luxurious Parisian notes" refer to the parts of the decor that are Parisian (of or from Paris) whether it be vases, paintings, lamps, etc. The second part is a little more ambiguous. "offer themselves to a fiercely feminine interior." basically means that the Parisian parts are paired with the extremely feminine interior. I would understand (from this sentence) that the Parisian parts of the design pair very well with the feminine design.

A: Different people use different words- "Dinner" is usually a meal at the end of the day, and "Supper" is the same thing, but it's more of a snack, a small meal. There isn't a big difference, so you could use either, but "Supper" is normally smaller.

Hello: This is formal, the greeting can be used for co-workers, your boss, people you have just met, etc. It can be used for friends and family as well but it's not common.

I hope this helps! If you have any questions then please feel free to ask. 😊
Q: Hello と Hi はどう違いますか?
A: Hi is more informal than Hello.

You can say:
Good day or good evening - formal
Hello - neutral
Hi - slightly informal
Hey - very informal

US English is pretty informal, so we rarely say "good day" or "good evening". You can say "hello" to almost anyone.
You can say "hi" to anyone except someone who is very superior. (I would say "hi" to my boss, but not to the President.)
You can say "hey" to a friend.

("Good morning" and "good evening" are not as formal as "good day" or "good evening".)
Q: Hi! I'm John! と Hello! I'm John! はどう違いますか?
A: They mean the same thing but the word hi is used more casually, like if you are taking to s friend or family member. Hello is more often used professionally, like when applying for a job, greying a new client, so on. It does not matter which one you use. Either one can be used anytime.


Q: Hi! is it correct to use the phrase "I used to dislike"?

This is the sentence:
At school I used to dislike the teacher because he always picked on me.

The book that I have mark "At school I disliked..." as the correct one.

But I thing both are correct. は 英語 (イギリス) で何と言いますか?
A: The problem with the first one is that it suggests that at some point later you changed your opinion and liked the teacher. The second one means that you never changed your opinion.

"Currently employed as a Digital Marketing Consultant at [company name].
Graduated in Computer Engineering at [university name]."
Q: Hi. I'm a bit iffy about the first part of this sentence. Is it talking about a real situation or an imaginary one? In other words, is it saying "it's an established fact that Madoka's system is fundamentally good.", or "it's no good at all but if we take a hypothetical situation where it is fundamentally good..."?

"If Madoka’s heavenly reward in death for suffering throughout one’s life was fundamentally good, then the desire to abolish it must be fundamentally evil."

-----For context-----

This is one of the challenging realities of abolitionism: could we ever create a new world without first undoing all the internalized harm that the old world did to us? Rebellion makes this question plain, as Homura attempts to create an entirely new world before she has had any time to heal or disentangle her identity from the ideologies that brutalized her for years. She becomes a mirror image of Madoka’s Law of Cycles rather than an abolition of it. Along with this mirroring comes a stark self-assessment: If Madoka’s heavenly reward in death for suffering throughout one’s life was fundamentally good, then the desire to abolish it must be fundamentally evil.
A: In this case, it is treated as a factual statement. It doesn't actually matter if it's hypothetical or not. You are asked to treat the statement "Madoka’s heavenly reward in death for suffering throughout one’s life was fundamentally good" as a given for the chain of reasoning that follows from it. It doesn't imply anything about the real situation, at least in this part of text. We can surmise from the thrust of the argument that later on the author will disagree with the statement, but if you take it in isolation, from the grammar alone, there is no indication that it is hypothetical.

Now, if you wanted to make it explicitly hypothetical, you'd have to change "was fundamentally good" to "were fundamentally good".
Q: Hi! Vacuum cleaning robot - what do you call this device for short? Roomba - can you call any such robot a roomba, or just of this particular brand? Thanks!
A: Roomba is the brand name, similar to how we call tissue paper “Kleenex” and cotton sticks “Q-tips”; the name brand is associated with the product. In conversation, both Roomba and vacuum robot are acceptable.
Q: Hi, can I ask you if the following sentences sound natural? 🙂

(1) What are your hobbies?

(2) What is your favorite thing to do?

(3) What do you do for fun?

I am also wondering if (1) is not used among native speakers.

They are all correct and are all pretty common, although the first one – you are more likely to hear this from somebody who doesn't know you at all. It sounds like something that my aunt would ask me – and what are your hobbies, my dear? I'm sure you are interested in many things.... you know, a little bit weird and formal.
