Thank you Rob, you are a very good teacher!

I understand it in the following way:
Strong adjectives are used to strengthen the meaning of a word (A good teacher-an excellent teacher)
Examples: good - excellent (a strong one)
                 big - huge  (a strong one)                  
                 small - tiny (a strong one)
I didn't hear any explanations of weak adjectives in that programm. Rob was talking about strong adjectives and other types of adjectives, but you may guess that it is a plain form of an adjective.
Best wishes! Ann.

I can't understand the difference between strong and weak adjectives in the language task 2.
Could you help me, please?
Thank you in advance.

It's working  now.

You are right - there was a technical problem! It took our technical team a few hours to solve, but the exercises should be working now.

Let us know if you have any other problems.
