  1. 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?

    1. Thanks for the positive feedback, Melita. I’m glad you enjoyed them.

      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!

  2. 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!”

  3. 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.

  4. What I want to say is that your lessons are interesting ,fantastic ,useful and out of the world 🙂
    A little piece of suggestion ,could you please make all your blog lessons into PDF format? That way ,we can download them and read them anytime by our cell phones .THX a million !
