    Default scan /timely

    It's the first time for me to scan your ESL Cafe website,I am very excited to meet you here.
    I wish you made your time to explain the meaning of "goody-two-shoes.

    thanks for your timely answer.

    Is browse better than scan?
    Is timely appropriate here?

    A 'goody-two-shoes' is someone who is annoyingly good; their behaviour shows more correctness than goodness and irritates.
