Hello Tiffani! Thank you for your lesson!
You probably didn’t notice but you put a “take a back seat” expression instead of “for the time being” one in the beginning.

Hey teacher Tiffany, I recently found you in YouTube videos. I’m in love with your didactic, you’re the best teacher I’ve ever had. I’ve been spending many hours listening you during the day, from Brazil.
