  10. Hi Kieran,
    I have to join the queue of people thanking you for this great lesson. I find it particularly useful in PET preparation classes, as the speaking paper of PET includes describing a picture.
    Plus all my adult students love to share their photos with their classmates.
    Thanks again, I look forward to reading your book.

    1. Hi Giula,
      Thanks for letting me know you like the lesson so much. I hope you enjoy my book.
      All the best,
      Kieran
