Hi Benjamin,

nice lesson.

I would like to ask, if it shouldn´t be in the test question Nr.2 the preposition “for” in front of gerund “being”.

Thank you for your answer.

Thanks for the lesson, Benjamin, but I think there is more than one acceptable answer for the question 7. Why “The main reason” isn’t correct?
