We are teaching the present perfect tense in this group of lessons, but we are not perfect. This week, we have a "bloopers" video for you. Bloopers are mistakes that actors make when they are saying their lines on camera. They make both the actors and the audience laugh. We make a lot of mistakes while we are filming Let's Learn English, so we have been laughing a lot in the past year. It has been fun for us to make this course for you.
We are very happy with the response from you, our audience, to this online course over the past year. You have been writing to us, sharing the lessons with your friends, and coming back week after week to see each new lesson. We know that you have been studying English well. How about the things you have done for fun? What else have you done this year? Write to us in the Comments section or by email.
In this quiz, you can test your listening skills and review the last five lessons. Watch a short video and answer each question.
