    To Mr.Stout
    I receive your email of Homestay Adventures class' about homework.I am sorry that I cannot answer these questions because I can't keep up with your speed of the lesson.I try to understand,I have read a few pages of my textbook.But I have to watch a DVD of this textbook also.Namely I haven't studied this Homestay Adventure's segment yet.So, if you are busy,couldn't you send me an email about Homestay Adventure lesson. If I make you send it,I think it's too impolite.I search segments about Homestay Adveture from your website by myself,so you needn't send emails about this lesson.
