    I like this episode, it use a interesting story to show the knowledge. I learnt two part of sentences type. There are Present Perfect and the words using time in the past, such as since, ago, for. It’s easy to use in the sentences with these words. It’s useful!

  • Norah 7 years ago

    I learned about the present perfect tense in context.
    I learned to use I have + simple past to make a present perfect sentence.
    I also learned some common expressions:
    I am sorry about my brother
    Not at all..)
    Thank you.

  • Norah Aloyayri 7 years ago

    I learned about talking about the present perfect, period of time and how to agree or disagree. Examples:
    1. “Something I haven’t told you” “She has hired a detective”.
    2. “Hasn’t seen him in 2 years”.
    3. “Definitely not” or “I don’t think so” for disagree and “maybe”, “possibly” or “perhaps” for not sure and “Definitely” or “I’m sure” for agree.
