Birgit Ferran, a Real English friend & contributor, created the special flash exercises for this lesson. They're excellent! She has many talents. She lives and works in Spain. She's a high-tech educator who illustrates a tiny bit of the huge spectrum of her abilities, with a most humble attitude, as seen in these Flash Exercises based on Real English video 32. Many thanks to Birgit for her contribution!

On this page you will find the short version of the clip for beginners. In the longer version for intermediate students, you will also meet Alejandra from the Dominican Republic. The exercises are based on both versions.

What does Alejandra find most difficult thing about learning English? She's obviously not a native speaker of English. But she speaks correctly, with her native accent.

Personal note: I didn't know what picture to use for this page, since I haven't got a photo of Birgitt, so I simply added a picture which shows where I live (on the left). I made a very short slideshow showing the house I built, where I still live now.
