very intersting

Monday, March 26th 2012

I’m sorry to be the one who writes here about the EngVid’s bads without mentioning the good things in this website, BUT:
“Can he find a way to get passed the defenders from the other team” is wrong! It’s PAST not passed!
In another lesson you got the third conditional wrong, now this, what are you up to next time? Please …

Monday, March 26th 2012

    I can’t agree with you, Mauro. “To get passed” seems to be appropriate here.

    Is it good to critisize a teacher that way? ;-)

Indeed awesome lesson!!!very interesting!!!Keep up!!!!
