Q: O que significa Even though my grandfather had less money than Jeff Bezos, he had enough. That’s a psychological statement.

A:
*Psychology* is the science of mind and behavior.
Psychology includes the study of conscious and unconscious phenomena, as well as feelings and thought.

*a psychological statement* ... is making a statement about how something affected a person's life (as per your sentence above)

Synonyms of "Grandfather" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre then I was told that we going to see My grandfather e then they told me that we going to see My grandfather ?
A: Yes.
They mean the same thing, but in the first, “I” received the action, and in the second, “they” acted. When the subject acts it is active voice and I think most languages have some sort of structure like this.
I would love to explain how the voices are constructed in español but I am still learning the difference between ser and estar and it makes me so confused! 😂

If you would like me to, I can help with other parts of the grammar so the sentences are correct. There are some small changes.

A: @malefy They are proud their grandfather was a Nobel prize winner is a good sentence. this sentence makes sense and sounds natural. the other sentence doesn't really make sense and it doesn't sound natural.
