comment の意味は何 versus はどういう意味
The どういう is like "what kind of~", rather than "How to say", no?

comment 「~たのは」という文型は何という意味?
@Anonymous 目指した in 目指したのは/目指したものは is the past tense form. The present tense form would be 目指すのは or 目指すものは.

comment Is it an adverb or not?
Like...実際に、即座に、とっさに, maybe? (We don't say 本当な、実際な、即座な、とっさな but 本当の、実際の、即座の、とっさの)

でも「本当な」って言わないんですよね・・・「本当に」は、ちょっと難しいみたいです。home.alc.co.jp/db/owa/jpn_npa?sn=73

comment Translating Dante english to japanese
I'm afraid but (あなたの)夢を追う is not imperative and 噂話無視 makes little sense to me.

じゃ。。。I would say まあ、お酒/日本酒に/としては甘いほうなんだけどね in this context.

ですので、Tedさん=ソト, 息子(my son)=ウチ, だから「(テッドさん(ソト)が私の息子(ウチ)に~~して)くれる」です。

comment Who's Who (Giving/Recieving Structures)
I think 下さる is 尊敬語(honorific form) not 謙譲語(humble form). I don't think 下さる is "extremely" polite/formal. I think 息子に英語の話し方を教えて*くださった*ので、そのお礼に車で神社に連れて行って(さし)あげることにしました would be acceptable here. (それと、Tedさんの息子とか関係ないです。>> 「「くれる」「下さる」:与える側が主語、*受ける側が視点*となり、*与える側はソトの人物*に限られる。」授受動詞)
