Randall had a suggestion that he posted to the last Listener Comments and Questions lesson (May 9, 2010)

I have, do you have, they have the best food. These would be helpful phrases for me to learn. Could you please post this topic? Thank you.

Johan emailed me with the question:

Hi Nathan ji,

I have the following question about inviting someone “at my place”. I do not knom the correct spelling for place so I use “karpher”

Meri karpher? – at my place?

Aapke karpher nahii – not at your place

Aapne karpher nahii – not at my place

What is the exact meaning of Aapne?

Why is it that I have to use Aapne and not Meri to say “Not at my place”, or are both (aapne and Meri) possible?


My Desi Guru produces unique, educational, entertaining, interactive and stimulating language DVDs aimed at pre-school children wanting to learn English/Asian languages – the Perfect Language tool as covered on BBC Radio.
There is a real gap in the market for quality and modern DVDs teaching kids English / Asian languages and My Desi Guru fulfill this. Our DVDs are an ideal flexible format to learn languages in a fun intuitive way; kids learn languages without even realizing it.Other languages (European) and volumes will follow as research and requests have shown products of this quality do not exist for basic languages like French and Spanishand anything that was created was done a long time ago and is now dated.
