Thank you for this excellent Jade lesson. But, I venture to suggest that I will enjoy two short lessons of about ten minutes (one dedicated to advanced students) rather than a little long for my taste.

I’m confused and correct me if I’m wrong but I think we shouldn’t use “by” when we say cash. It should be pay cash or pay in cash. Which one is correct?

Thank you Jade! The video was very useful.
But I think the exam was not appropriate to evaluate the true goal of this lesson because all of answers were included “by” and this made them so easy.
