why q8 should be "decline" instead of "declining"? thanks

Hi Sunny,

You need the noun "decline". It was "a decline in..." not "a declining in..."

Regards

Hi Simon,

I listened to this recording two weeks ago and couldn't finish them after I listened three times.

Yesterday, I did this exercise again and fulfilled the task after I listened three times. I wonder if this could be regarded as a way of improvement.

Regards!

Definitely! Good work Jean. I'm sure you are improving.

All the best

Simon

Thanks, Simon!
