Good morning/afternoon/evening! I hope that you sleep at night, and don’t study.

We’ve discussed the subject of countable and uncountable. We have also learned the names of the groups for most kinds of animals!

It’s high time to do the exercises. Repetitio est mater studiorum. We should revise what we’ve learned, and repeat the exercises to train our English speaking skills.

You know, people invited the language once to say something important to someone.

What I mean is we have to speak.
