I have been reading the “power verb resource page” at the first instance and it has been a reading very completed and full of power verbs like to foster, to debug, to streamline, to portray, to bolster, to lobby, to spearhead, to appraise, to fundraise, to retrieve and to draft which are new for me although I had seen some of them sometimes but not many times. It’s a good choice to use them in resumes and interviews but it’s necessary to study them deeply, then to assure you’re using it correctly, as you has explained us. Thanks a lot, teacher Emma, it has been a great lesson to achieve our goals and targets.

Sunday, June 18th 2017

    Sorry, “… you have explained us…” would be the right word for this present perfect tense.
