Thank you Ronnie ma’am for this wonderful lesson.
Question no-6 was a bit tricky but I got it and this kind of questions are seeking our more interest towards the lesson….
In IELTS listening sections sometimes speakers sound got mixed or may be due to their fast speaking habit, we assume a different accent and miss the original words…..ma’am if it’s possible then please do give us some tips or may be a lesson on that…..!!
Thank you ma’am
Thank you team engVid
