Hi gill. Thank you for this wonderful lesson. I haven’t scored well because even though I watched your video, I was able to recall what you said. So please forgive me for this. I am staying in India so I have no idea about the British currency and all that stuff you taught. But while watching this channel, now I have come to know about all your british currencies. Thank you once again.

Like teacher

Hello Gill!

That is amazing!! Actually, you are a brilliant teacher. You always approach interesting topics in a very creative way. Congratulations! I also know an idiom related to money: “bee and honey” (it is rhyming slang from East End (London), but I think it is out-of-date).

The old British currency was rather complicated. You British must be very good in Mathematics (and I am sure you are).

Thank you very much, and I look forward to your next lesson.
