***VIDEÓ*** Időkifejezések haladóknak 1. – Time expression, pre-intermediate level 1.

Legújabb videómban az időkifejezéseket tanuljuk. Ez is olyan téma, amely több szinten tárgyalható. Ebben a videóban nem a teljesen kezdőkhöz szólok, de középfokon lesz még mit tanulni 🙂 A videó magyarul van, de azért a kulcskifejezéseket el is olvashatod!


In my newest video we learn time expressions. This is also a topic that can be discussed on different levels. In this video I addresed not the complete beginners, but we will have more to learn at the intermediate level 🙂 The video is in Hungarian, but the key expressions you can also read!
