thanks for your effective lesson
I got a suggestion, could you make a lesson about the difference between some synonyms like “infer vs conclude ” or “suggest vs insinuate vs imply”, you know, these kinda of things that are so confusing for us to use in different situations,about their connotation and other stuff

“empathize” it’s a word very important; understand and share the feelings of another. Thanks for this lesson!

got 10/10

there is my first try, ready to have ane comments on it.

1. I was disillusioned about her when I herad what she’d said about a woman, who was asking for a help and support because her husband was seriously ill. There was not an ounce of empathy, she was very harsh and cynical. She was saying like the man had been acknowledged to be dead(or being dead? I’m confused, which is right?)
2. If you truly regret about something, maybe you should find an opportunity to mend it.
3. His story of overcoming something that had seemed to be impossimple to handle had a great impact on my conscious. It still motivates me, when I have troubles and almost feel despairing.
