Hello Mr Adam. In the lesson you gave an example with “overrun” and you said that a tourist area might be overrun by tourist.
But in the Cambridge dictionary I found a similar example with the preposition “with”
“The city has become increasingly unpleasant because it is overrun with tourists.”
So what should it be?
Thank you very much.

Monday, March 16th 2020

Hey mr Adam, Thanks for the lesson. I got 10/10 but still i don’t understand number 3 very well. Why is TO CHECK in middle of the sentence. For me it makes more sense without it. I am very confused.
