    Interesting video on animal idioms James.

    A principle in testing states ” You test what you teach”.

    There were two idioms ( rat on and rat out)that were not taught overtly on this video lesson, however they were included on the test; how come?

    Thus, the validity of this quiz is highly questionable and so is the outcomes?

    Looking forward to your reply James.

    Regards

    A pidgin is a language created in order to conduct business when two sets of speakers don’t have a common language.

Hi James,
I have a question about one of the expresions.
“Monkey see, monkey do”. Monkey is singular, isn’t it ? So why no “(e)s” to see and do ? Is it an exception, or something else ?
Thank you :)
