Hello Fatemeh, your answer is correct. Adding the word “just” indicates it recently happened. However, not using “just” does not necessarily mean a long time but rather saying that it happened.


Good job!

Fatemeh, very good paraphrase with a few corrections. “No need to think about…”


”...so we won’t oppose you on this one.”


Bluesky, excellent paraphrase, just change to ”...so we’ll stop arguing…”


You both are welcome and I’ll prepare the next lesson this week.
