  1. Hi
    I am happy to get in touch with you. I am in Bunia in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I am a graduate in English -African cultures. I teach English at LA RACINE private secondary school. But it is not well paying.
    I hold a conditional offer for MA African Studies at SOAS London. I need to improve my production and listening skills. So I would like to ask for a way of doing online listening and production practices. Can it be possible?
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Best wishes

  2. Hello teacher, how are you? I am astonished to know about your large scaie activities. In quiz Who vs Whom and Who/Whoever vs Whom/Whomever, I have got 10/10, But I have acquired it very hardly, I spent enormous time on it. But I am happy now to clear those. Vocabulary dictionary is amazing and interesting to me. Thank you so much.
