      I went through your list of proverbs Alex and I was amazed by your hard work and commitment. You did an extraordinary work, beyond any doubt.

      The way you organized the material will help us to assimilate much better both meaning and usage.

      Thanks for sharing this useful piece of work with us Alex.

      All my best

        Thanks, Regino. It took me quite a few hours of work to compile the list and to write out all of the examples, but if someone found it useful, it’s all worth it.

I would like to see you teaching longer, say over 10 mins in your lessons. If I remember it right, your teaching duration seldom lasts over 10 mins in your lessons.

Profile photo of victor victor

    Hi Victor, I’ll try to make longer videos in the future. It’s tough sometimes because I don’t want the videos to be boring to watch either.

By the way, about this lesson, I remind that the Republic of Plato is one of the best books I’ve ever read. I didn’t read the other yet.

Profile photo of Fabio Cicerre Fabio Cicerre

    I haven’t finished the other yet either. I’m just reading it out of curiosity because my background is Polish.

    Profile photo of Alex Alex

      Interesting, Alex. You raised my curiosity about Poland. I´ll put this book in my read list, in English :-)

      Profile photo of barmandec barmandec

        Nice! FYI, the correct way to say that is, “It is near the beaches.” If you want to use a preposition, say “It is near TO the beaches.”

        Profile photo of Alex Alex

          yeah …I recognize that I have problems with the prepositions … ha .. ha.. thanks for correct my mistake…

    You can also say “go by the book.”
