  12. I've got a question, because I see this a lot and I get really confused. And now I can see it both on the video and in the description below… "Breathe" the verb, isn't it spelt with an 'e' at the end? Breath is the noun, isn't it? Is it a misspelling, a typo or something here? Thank you.

  13. I just vaped………………………………

  14. It's a very good way of learning! It's been great. Iearned a lot.

    I would never to take up smoking or vaping. In contrast, my friend gave up smoking and took up vaping 2 months ago. The habit of smoking can trigger lungs cancer, so perhaps you should quit it. Choose the options at your own peril!

    0:49 it should be "to breathe" with "e", isn't it?

  19. Fantastic but why no transcripts?

  20. The governments should ban all kind of smoking.
