    Default your mail of to-day

    Good morning,
    I received your new mail this morning and on the second line is mentioned:

    • imilarities and Differences Between Connecting Expressions- Card Game [PDF]


    What do you mean with IMILARITIES, a word that isn't mentioned in the best dictionnaire I have ?

    Thanks in advance

    To summarize, you don't need to send this at all, because the word simply contained a typo, and it should be "Similarities."

    Here's a rewrite:

    Can you explain the word "imilarities"? I can't find it in any of my dictionaries.

    Thank you in advance
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
