Thanks teachers! I learned a lot with this episode. New words that come from different sports I was not used to. I think it would be perfect if you put photos with arrows to indicate the names of all accessories, sport stuffs used in dialogue. It’d be useful for us. I’ve searched on Google to see and learn about climbing shoes, belay device, birdie, badminton. It was amazing!
