  • Nice work, but I think you should improve slide 3. 'Explain briefly what do you remember' is incorrect in English. It should read 'Explain briefly what you remember' . The same rule applies to 'what do you remember'. It should read 'what you remember'. After Explain briefly we use 'indirect questions, not direct'.
