It's would be funny, but I didn't knew that I need to have 5 minutes break every 30 minutes of my studying. Also I didn't knew that there is no need to focus on the details.
So there is a lot of things I didn't knew.. but now I'll fix it!

I agree with teacher's advise. When I take a test, I was so nervous. But I started to take a test. My mind was calm.

I surprise with "Do not get too much comfortable" because I was sleeping when I study because of the place where I learn is so good. About "Take regular breaks" so that is a great idea, too. When I sit on the chair too long, my back has broken. : )

I disagre about "Don't eat sugar" it is not fair for me because sugar permit to people evacuated stress especially chocolate.
Orange can also permit to keep awakening

The transcript isn't equal the audio at 100% and it made me confused when I tried to compare my text to text on this site. For example: in the transcript, we have "Are you ready?" but really the teacher asked, "Everybody ready?" and etc.

Hi popovserhii. Oops, sorry for the confusion! We've amended the transcripts on the page and on the worksheet now, so have a look! Thanks for letting us know.

Well, that "don't eat sugar" surprise me a lot, usual my mother tell me, "bring with you water and a pice of choccolate, it give to you energy", so now i think i will change choccolate with fruits, is better i think, however usual i record my voice while i'm reading my notes, so when i have free time i turn on and i listen it so i remember more informations, or when i have to prepare some project i used to listen nature songs, it relax me a lot.

The advice "Don't eat a sugar" is surprised me. I thought that sugar can help.
I can give some advice. Don't worry before exam only because worrying don't help us to do exam. Worrying is nonsense for exam

I agree with the tips in the record, but I also want to share mine:
1) Firstly, turn off all devices that can distract you from learning
2) If you have to learn some words or rules, put some notes with them in the places where you very often (you will see the notes and read them)
3) And don't forget that you're doing it for yourself. Try to improove yourself and you will be the coolest:)
I hope I helped you in some case<3
