Lesson 92: Special sentences for Spoken English learners

This blog deals with the problem of non-native English learners. That's why we also present sentences used occasionally in speech to increase their confidence. The aim is not that they should cram these phrases or word-units but understand them to gain in confidence and steadily build their own vocabulary.
