    1. I hadn’t thought about making a quiz for the podcasts. Well, If you’d like to, that would be great if it’s not too much trouble. Email it to me and I’ll set it up here 🙂 Thanks!

      1. It would also be good to do for my own students so I’d be ‘killing two birds with one stone.’ LOL But I’m not sure if I have your email address.

  1. Excellent episode, Michael.
    One question: What´s the difference between “sometime” and “anytime”? Can we use them at the same way? I´m not sure.
    The same question for “some time” and “any time”.
    Thanks, have a great Monday 😉

  2. Dear Teacher I do love your podcasts and this lesson was really helpful because sometimes I get confused using these words. Thanks once more!
