Hi Sherry4869,

 

We saw you wrote a comment on the vocabulary page 'Annabel'. Is it still a problem for you? Can you email us and tell us some examples of specific pages you can't comment on?

 

Best wishes,

Actually, I’ve already learn phrases in the video it is still hard to understand though I mean when the speaker speak with their natural speed it’s a bit hard to listen even I knew it. I sometimes go back to listen to make sure that this time is better than previous time. Anyway I truly love this video and thank you for making helpful lesson

A really helpful content. Thank you so much. It's interesting for me to get to know your opinion about online homework help services. In fact there is so much information and thought about online homework sites but I haven't found the exact point yet. One say that it's totally wrong to use any of them, and someone gives an opposite answer. People tend to think that students become lazier when they ask someone to do their homework instead of them. Without doubts, it might seem easy and sweet until you get your essay checked and graded. But there are some services that truly help to understand the subject. So what is the exact point?
