    That’s awesome to hear, adrijana. I try not to waste too much time in my lessons and to keep them as concise as possible. I wonder if I should stop singing to save even more time, though! :p

    Friday, September 20th 2019

      No, singing is OK. It is not annoying, I don´t know why. Just I think, you forgot the collocation TAKE TURNS and TAKE PLACE. But never mind. I´am going to look it up in the dictionary. Thank you again.
