Hi Simon,

I was listening through to this talk and it "stuck me that?" or "it occurred to me that?" the idea was exactly what I told my students in class yesterday. Did I use both correctly? Or which one is more appropriate?

Can I also say "I was immediately struck by the idea delivered, which was exactly what I told my students yesterday?"

Thank you.!

CORRECT ANSWERS FROM SIMON:

1. attention
2. wandered
3. naps
4. daydream
5. urge

...

HYS,

Yes, "it struck me that" means "it occured to me that". Both are equally good phrases.

"I was immediately struck by the idea" is a good sentence. It's not wrong to put "delivered" on the end, but I probably wouldn't say this myself - it's more natural to say something like "I was immediately struck by the speaker's idea(s)".
