Hello Minerva

When you want to drop a sentence in a new position, you have to click or press on the small white hand (on the right) of the sentence that is in new position.

Does that make sense? It's easy to do but a little difficult to explain, so if you'd like me to describe how to do it again, please let us know.

All the best

No, I don´t. Because the country where I am form and the contacts I have, I´m not accustomed to make phone calls in English nor leave voicemail messages. There were only around three times when I call and speak in English, the first one, it was a call for asking for information about a bilingual high school I´d like to work someday. The second call I made, it was for asking to an American guy who is a chiropractor for information about the price of his service. And thirdly, it was because my Laptop was broken and I needed it repaired as soon as possible, and he was the only person who could help me by then, he was an American guy too. I´ll try to have more contacts in order to get fluency at English and become a bilingual person. My main goal now, it is to get a C1 English level by January 2021. (So, this is why I´m taking these great resources at this Platform!)
