Sabaan Nee- Change to:”and let’s forget the past and restart our relationship” and “your sister contacted me” Good job.


Fatemeh- Change to: “that’s annoying me” and “your sister made contact with me to lessen any hurt feelings from you.” Very good job.


Amira- Excellent explanation.


Bora- Change to: “and will forget it as well.” Also, “when you made your decision” and “to avoid a misunderstanding.” Very good effort.

Sabann Nee – Good explanation; “she let her emotions” was in the past tense. Correct yours to “I listened to the voice of my emotions.”


Fatemeh – Overall good explanation, change “selfishly” to “selfish.” Change your sentence to “I thought I could control my emotions.”


Amira – Very accurate explanation, keep up your good work.


Good job everyone. Next lesson, boyfriend Bill talking to Janet.
