Too short

Good day, why do you not make up a long class? You guys are great, but I would like to have a full class. I have to invest too much time to play a next episode. Make up episodes of at least 60 minutes long.

Great idea for a short little show that demonstrates the meanings of words and phrases. And love the gal named Faye Faye!!
