Thank you so much, Sir.
I always follow what you said and try to learn everyday. You are a brilliant teacher.

Hello Simon !
The shopkeeper's not cutting is the prices.
shopkeeper is ?
is it possible to write :
jack's happy = jack is happy .
I know it should be avoided in the test, but is it fine for informal writing ?

But my teacher always tells me to use SOAR, PLUMMET, ROCKET since INCREASE, RISE and FALL are too common, Sir.

Hello everybody!
I have been memorizing such words for a while in as much as my teacher advised me but you are arguing that we should not use them.
Now I am gonna be a little bit confuse that which one is the right way.
As you have thought me more than my own teacher so I may prefer to opt your advice than his.

any feedback is highly welcomed!!!

Thanks excessively Simon .
