I have failed in this lessons.

Yes, I am good with numbers , I love it and I can read it

it's difficult

I've liked the numbers since I was a child and I really love doing numerical calculations. I liked numbers so much, so that my favorites subjects were Maths, Chemistry and Physics.

I think that I’m very good with numbers
I often use a mental calculation , to find a futur date or for get a total of operations , I use for this different languages I speak Arabic French and English.

i replay the audio for 4 times , it is tricky at first because it was difficult to distnguish betwen some numbers for example 1881 ,1914....

I'm quite well, even though I found difficult to recognise the numbers which look like similar in spoken language.

The first part was tricky, may I get only the ideas and didn't kept the order of the appearance of the words

It was an excellent practice. I understood every word and sentence.
