comment What is the difference between “something else” and “something extra”?
It was a multiple choice question and there was no explanation and I was really curious about the difference between these two words since I truly could not tell the difference and thought both are all right.

Yeah, this sounds much better. Could you come up with a proverb with the same meaning?

"Opportunity knocks but once" is very nice, but the intended meaning is not that success depends on opportunity, but depends on how you use your opportunity. For example, your boss gives a task and wants to promote you if you perform well, but you did not finish it successfully, so you did not make a good use of the opportunity.

comment “Professor of entomology” or “a professor of entomology”
Thanks, everyone! Actually, the original context is like this. "Just a few miles away, at National Chung Hsing University, there is a man who shares Ango’s obsession with crickets. This is Dr. Yang Jeng-Tze, professor of entomology. " I'm not sure whether there should be an article there.
