Hello Ma"am I will suggest a one thing please don't mind.In your fifth slide you mention some sentences in first sentence that is" We will go word by word".I think this is grammatically incorrect, we use "Word for word".
Hi Reema, I didn't understand simile to other lessons. This lesson having ambiguity and it's anticlimactic. May be I am not focused so I will redudently watch to understand better
hello ma'am your english is mind blowing. I got to learn many things by the way you speak. You use many phrases in the conversation. But some phrases are not very clear by the way you speak. You speak so fast. Please make subtitles of the video so that it could be easy to learn the phrases you use in the conversation. Please ma'am it's my request. Please make subtitles of the video.?
