  1. Thanks Elizabeth,

    The witch is bewitching, and the narrator too! I’m looking for more post-TESOL creations. 😉

  2. Thank you for the video. I did not understand the present perfect as an actual present but only as a way to report past information that are still true (which still puts too much focus on the past). Your explanation is really helpful for a native French speaker.

  3. Hey – thank you for your kind words – this is a very rough and ready version, but knowing that you have seen it is most encouraging and should motivate me to actually clean it up .. so thanks a lot for your message:-)
