These comics are marvellous and captivating! Thank you! Still, I have a question – why do you use “strong adjectives” and “extreme adjectives”? What’s the difference?

There isn’t really any difference between “strong adjectives” and “extreme adjectives.” I just didn’t want to repeat myself too much! 🙂
Keep up the good work!
Hi Gabriel. The most hideous part of my town is the historic center. A degraded part that needs to be refurbished but there’re always political problems.
As for the joke, how about this one? “I haven’t spoken to my wife for years. I don’t want to interrupt her!”
That’s interesting. Where do you live by the way?
I like the joke. Classic! It reminds me of this one:
“My husband and I were happy for 25 years. Then we met.”
Yes.I’d like this lesson.Thank you.
Sir, your lessons are right up my alley.
Could you make a lesson connected with using linked words (phrases) such as according to, in addition to, as regards, by the same token and so on and so forth, please? Because all too often these phrases are being used by well-educated persons in formal speech and it makes me feel confused a little bit.
Thanks a lot.
That’s a great suggestion. It’s now officially on “the list.” 🙂
What I want to say is that your lessons are interesting ,fantastic ,useful and out of the world 🙂
