  29. Valere BERAMBAYE says:

    I have heard all the conversation between Mark and Annette and I am forced to mark all of the transcript but in the end when Mark says OK, thanks a lot; I think I have heard Annette to say: yeah, isn’t she?

    It’s a very interesting part of lesson, as usual. I learned a lot of news vocabularies, the grammar rule and others things.

    But there are somes expressions I can’t understand clearly like: “colorful way of speaking”, “a fair bit” and “a thousand thank yous”.
    YOUS, it’s the first time I heard talking about it, could you explain me their meaning? Is there another rule of grammar for this term or it’s only a slang?
    See you later in the next lesson.

  35. Mark White says:

    Hi Magda

    You wrote

    “check my message and tell me if THEY are well written”

    It should be “check my message and tell me if IT is well written)

    “It” is singular. “message” is singular.

    Not plural
    cheers Mark

  36. Mark White says:

    Hey Magda

    Thanks heaps for your feedback.

    “tell me if IT is well written, please. I’d really appreciate it.”

    Where are you? Spain or Latin America?
