Nancy

Wednesday, May 23rd 2018

I got 9 out of 10.
Question 5 is my mistake.
I pressed the wrong word. But I still know that word is rapid.

Wednesday, May 23rd 2018

    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.
    So I’m actually got 10 out of 10.

Fruitful information how to use effective words by replacing very. I am visiting this website since 2 months. I have improved my knowledge a lot and overcome my common mistakes which I was doing before. I found the teachers are amazing and have great ability to explain something precisely. Teaching with perfect accents which is loud and clear for everyone.

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
