I got 10 :D your lessons are awesome !!! :D thanks for your help !

Tuesday, July 29th 2014

    just 10 ???

    Wednesday, July 30th 2014

      I do not like much the idea of stealing a conversation. Sometimes we have no other choice, but to do it.

      Useful conversation skills to keep a conversation going, but above all to put a stop to those who love holding the floor for hours.

      Regards to all EngVid viewers.

      Tuesday, August 5th 2014
