  1. Good morning Michael,

    1. Despite Bob meant to say “I was pretty bored”, he answered “I was boring”.
    2. His history class was boring because the teacher was boring.

    Have a nice day!

  2. Hi Michael
    1.Tom was surprised with Bob’s answer because he said incorrectly” I was pretty boring” ,whereas he could say ” It was pretty boring ” or ” I was pretty bored”.
    2. Micheal thinks his history class is boring because the teacher is boring.
    I am interested in folk music. I think this kind of music is effected of the culture,customs, history and the real emotion of people that live in a specific region.
