  1. I don’t find the advanced vocabulary for some of the other common topics here, like: Sports.. are you planning to incorporate those as well?

  2. Hello Mike,

    The use of “No” with “unable” seems inappropriate to me. So, when I was reading the sentence, I did not think it to be the correct one.


  3. I think the meaning of addiction should be: Not being able to stop doing something instead of “the condition of not being unable to stop doing something.”

    Thank You!
