  1. Hello Dr.Hariri,
    I have few questions from the story.
    1. what does this sentence mean => ( the means of healing you )
    Does (mean) here means the cure?
    2. (you must wrap his skin yet warm around you.) what does (yet) here means?
    3. (in a rage against him) what does this phrase mean?

    • Hi. I would be more than happy to answer all of your questions.
      1. “Means” as a noun has the meaning of a way, method or instrument with which you can do something special. I think I’ve explained about that in the video at the bottom of the lesson, yet that’s quite OK to ask us as many questions as you wish.
      2. Yet in this context presents a temporal (time-related) condition and it signifies that you should wrap his skin around your neck while it is still warm. In other words, you should “immediately” wrap his skin around your neck (on this very condition).
      3. In a rage against him = extremely violently and in a furious or angry manner, the lion criticized or attacked the fox for not visiting him earlier.
