      Just some comments on this lesson Alex:

      Most of these adjectives are not really a problem for Spanish speakers since we see them as cognates.

      Words that come from latin are easy for us to learn, for example . . .

      . . .”Relevant” in English is cognate with “relevante” in Spanish.

      As usual, you explain grammar and vocabulary with great easy.

      Thanks Alex for this excellent vocabulary lesson.

      All the best to you.

I am aware of that there are more than 2000 common academic words in English. It is so good if you make lessons with reliable examples relevant to them. My peers and I can learn these words flexibly and make a significant and visible stride in the near future. I hope that my comment will come to you and I will receive your feedback soon
