I would like to see you teaching longer, say over 10 mins in your lessons. If I remember it right, your teaching duration seldom lasts over 10 mins in your lessons.

Saturday, July 25th 2015

    Hi Victor, I’ll try to make longer videos in the future. It’s tough sometimes because I don’t want the videos to be boring to watch either.

Monday, July 27th 2015

    Exactly. The brain is a muscle: you need to use it to make sure it stays strong and healthy.

    Tuesday, July 28th 2015

By the way, about this lesson, I remind that the Republic of Plato is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I didn’t read the other yet.

Monday, July 27th 2015

    I haven’t finished the other yet either. I’m just reading it out of curiosity because my background is Polish.

    Tuesday, July 28th 2015

      Interesting, Alex. You raised my curiosity about Poland. I´ll put this book in my read list, in English :-)

      Sunday, August 2nd 2015

      No Alex…I from Guayaquil city…it is near from the beaches… : )

      Tuesday, July 28th 2015

        Nice! FYI, the correct way to say that is, “It is near the beaches.” If you want to use a preposition, say “It is near TO the beaches.”

        Tuesday, July 28th 2015

          yeah …I recognize that I have problems with the prepositions … ha .. ha.. thanks for correct my mistake…
