Question 5 is my mistake.
I pressed the wrong word. But I still know that word is rapid.

    No! Wait, I mean, the question 5 said Freddie was ________ after fasting for three days on an extreme diet. I clicked ravelous, not rapid. I am right.

Teaching with perfect accents which is loud and clear for everyone.

this is a superb lesson

Friday, June 8th 2018

My performance was superb,I got 100%

Monday, June 11th 2018

Hey 🙋🏻‍♀️ I got 💯. My homework is :

very bad
very sad
very nice
very well
very important

P. S. I want to add something. When I feel uncomfortable while using very with adjectives,if I couldn’t remember these words I change “very” itself instead of changing whole adverb phrases. I use “so / pretty / super / too” like pretty hot, super cool, too bad or so sad. It might be a trick and I accept that. However I’ll do my best to use these fabulous words to make my conversation more professional ones. I am so grateful for your help, thank you.

Best regards,
Öznur
