Hi Mónica,

I was waiting for your classmates to attempt this exercise too but I am not going to wait any longer.

You did pretty well.

Just be careful with:

She's very talkative but her husband is quiet. The opposite of funny is serious.

He always dresses in black - black shirt, black trousers, black everything! Wear + object (a shirt, trousers...) / dress + no object (dress in black, dress well, dress badly ...)

A: Can I speak to Mr. Smith? B: Certainly. I'll put you through.

She doesn't really get on with her sister. They are completely different. "Well" is not necessary.

That's it.

Have a nice weekend.
