The method of associations 4

Imagine the recent events that happened to you: how you woke up, what you did, what you did yesterday or the day before yesterday.
Imagine yourself in someplace, for example, on the seashore, mentally look around, hear the sound of the sea, feel the wind blowing around you, smell the saltwater, feel the sea spray on your skin.

Imagine the (most) recent events that (have) happened to you: how you woke up, what you did, what you did yesterday or the day before yesterday.

Imagine yourself in some place, for example, on the seashore. Mentally (imagine you are looking around) look around, hear the sound of the sea, feel the wind blowing around you, smell the saltwater, feel the sea spray on your skin.

Hi Oleks,

This kind of thing is precisely what we all should be doing more of! In the U.K. people are always rushing around and many are in a constant state of anxiety and stress. They are therefore less productive and efficient when it comes to absorbing new information and learning new skills.

Your extract is superbly written and your speaking skills are flawless!

I agree with Aliakbar regarding the following

1.Imagine the most recent events that have happened to you:(you need to use the present perfect tense here)

2. what you did yesterday or the day before yesterday. - what you did yesterday or the day before yesterday.(no need to repeat the word "yesterday" again, as it is clear what you are referring to)
