Wow!!! many new members!!!

Once a month I visit to one of English-lovers' to learn. We discuss, debate etc, of course have talking time over coffee and tea.

This time, I was astonished as I arrived there although I'd known some new members would join.
Yeah, there were 10 of us!!! W(@0@)W More than I had expected!!! (^^) 5 out of them were new visitors. Needless to say, I was stimulated. lol lol lol
We talked about " books you highly recommend." ( As I said before, though) I'm ashamed to say this, usually, I don't read books...except for English newspapers, magazines and text books...(^^;) So, this time I decided to check books they recommend. Yeah, you know, we had a significant time and day!!
I hope they'll join regularly from now on....

Well, a representative of the circle showed a certain article....It featured the circle!!! Moreover, including her picture.
It was the second time, she said. It's so exciting, isn't it? After the paper was released, today's members checked and joined. Someday, I want to try to do.. lol lol lol because it was a great experience to her, right?

Anyway, during the time, one of them asked a question the following...............

" What is the difference between [ I walk my dog] and [ I walk with my dog]???"

Another member hinted.... "With" means that we go to somewhere for doing something together...I image like that.
Yeah, I also have an idea like her. The former means " I merely take my dog to go for a walk", on the other hand, the later means " for example, I'm going to go to a planed destination for doing something with my dog...or some kind of that..."
I wanted to clear these nuance, so I mailed it to a native speaker. He said, " You're spot-on.[[The former means < I merely take my dog to go for a walk> ]] "
Thanks to the member who asked, I completely learned and confirmed nuance which is hard for English learners to understand.(^^)
