So, lets just recap on that.I’ve forgotten to say Sorry, I should justsomething! mention one thing.Too complicated! Make it So, basically, what I’msimple saying is this …
    71. 71. Survival TacticsWHAT YOU THINK WHAT YOU SAYI’m talking nonsense. Sorry, perhaps I didn’t make that quite clear.How do I say this in Sorry, what’s the word/English? expression?Wrong! Try again. Sorry, let me rephrase that. So, just to give you theI’m running out of main points here.time
    72. 72. TrainingYou are going to watch a video called ‘Bill Gates: Mosquitos,Malaria and Education’ While watching, write down as manyexamples of signposting as you can find.
