Uh-oh, erm... Expand your Vocab!

I've found this graphic about how to replace the (very often used) word "very" with other words and I thought it could be nice to share it here.

I'm such a philanthropist... 

You're welcome in advance,

have a nice week.

Pepe, stop training your stupidity, you already reached the proficient level (congrats for that)

AG, woah... I'm wordless :P
You're better student than me; I've never taken notes.
I hope also your memory is not as bad as mine and you can remember some of these words.
Thanks for dropping by!

Roman's list of things that he would like to do:

- To play the role of Joy in the serial "Friends"

- To go back in time and replace the judging eyes' button "¬¬" on Spanish keyboards with an another unnecessary button from Ukrainian keyboards.

Pau, thanks! ^_^
How nice of you to help Roman with his nonsense... I can imagine now how can be Roman after learning so many vocab:

@Estanis, educate your spanish butt and use the list I share here:
Very good = Excellent :P

Hi Paula! :)

I couldn't imagine that there are SO MANY ways of expressing the same things.

I am going to remember all those words, but I will add this blog to the bookmarks for sure! 

Thank you! :)
