About N 4. – “I must have hit the send button by mistake.”
Will it be true to say “I must have hit the send button by chance” ?

Thursday, December 21st 2017

    Hi,TBezu! I think the idiom “by chance” means a sort of unexpective good luck.

Tuesday, December 26th 2017

Hi Rebecca

first of all, Merry Christmas. I hope you had a good time and got lots of presents.
second, this might sound weird, but I wanted to thank you for your lessons. I got a different and better job because of my English skills. Of course, I got it because the great service the teachers at Engvid.com provide. Some people have asked me where I learned English, and I just tell them to go to Engvid and capitalize on the page while it is for free. Haha, I truly appreciate these kinds of services where we can democratize education.

bye for now.

Tuesday, January 2nd 2018

Hi, Rebecca
Thank you for this amazing lesson
It was on my list of things to do and eventually I got round to watching it
From my point of view, the bad point is that there weren’t examples on your board (how to use idioms)
May I ask you next time write down how to use phrasal verbs, idioms etc.
Anyway, I look forward next lesson with you, Rebecca
