  23. Many thanks

  24. Could you pls add subtitles on it?

  25. Thank you for all these quite useful videos, guys! But there is one point which frustrate me: when the lady read some title from some mass media reports, she is always using titles with useful vocabularly which was printed on sheets!!!! In my humble opinion, this is quite envitonmentally-UNFRIENDLY! Can you, please, use tablets, or just screens of your computers for demonstrating and reading the titles!

  26. Really very simple and informative channel 🥰🥰🥰

  27. Finally someone's asking the real questions.

  28. It's not the first time Neil is telling about that he'd like to be a producer. What that person do? Neil is really good in what he's doing now 🙂
