When I lived in VietNam, I mean my country, I went to the coffee house once a day. But now I'm going on the trip to Canada, the cafe is far from my residence, so I almost don't go there in a week, and go at the weekend instead.

Hi. This is Dennis, from Brazil. Thanks a lot for sharing these materials. They are so useful for me. I finished my English course a long time ago and now I can review the content and also improve it too.
