I have completed the task that consist of ten questions which is, An invitation to a party, Changing a meeting time, Changing plans, Facts and figures, Four conversations, Instructions for an assignment, Leaving a message, Missing a class, Transport announcements, Understanding an explanation

It's incredible! When I was a student I never understood anything about mathematical concepts. Now ,while I'm studying English, I can understand a brief mathematical lecture! So, congratulations to this professor: her explanation was really brilliant. Thanks so much.

The last lecture I went It was called 'Conscious leadership, the business of being you'. This one was absolutely fascinating and the topics dealt with were Theories and styles of leadership, Emotional Intelligence, teamwork,etc. Some times I had some doubt but I asked speaker and he explained me elaborately even with some examples.

The last lecture I attended was about the brand of car that I work with . It was a technical training . The explanation was not clear because the trainer could not speak English well , he was chicness.

When i was lisening in this exercise the name Fibonacci' mathematician. I referred it to the actor in "Prison Break" movie !!!

I'm Italian and I know who was Fibonacci. He was a famous mathematician in the Middle Age. The his sequence originates from a problem proposed by the emperor Federico II. Fibonacci solved the problem faster the others.

It was a machine learning course in computer science. I was not satisfied because the professor was not dominant. I think some simple topics such as the Fibonacci numbers can be well explained, but a difficult subject requires a very specialist, clever and experienced teacher.

Yes, i think she's explained how it works to the student. However, it would be nice, it had taken place to give some exercises. I had known this sequence.It was reminding for me. Thanks a lot.
