This lesson made me question how I would set up tutoring students in my free time. It seems like it could be quite profitable and rewarding. Business clients could be a good side source of income so it was interesting to hear about the diversity of the groups and reasons for being there. It would be very important not to embarrass the bosses.Grammar is always one of the most difficult topics to teach even for native speakers due to the complexity and exception.

For me, I believe the ability to distinguish them will be particularly useful.
