These series of classes started thanks to the most active English learners from our blog. They asked me to give a little wider explanation with examples and to write a lot of exercises to help each of us to practice and remember more.


We will study the grammar with Infographics and new possibilities to use your new knowledge.


I’ll give you lots of exercises as you asked me to, and the next day I’ll write the answers for them. Usually, you waited to get the answers, but this time, most of my students want to have the correct answers as soon as possible.


Let’s start with the new Homework!
