    Ummmm, we don't do homework for you here.

    Ask us specific questions about what you don't understand and we'll try our best to help you.

    :wink:
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    I agree with the strong form, which is not so popular these days. It's relevance to teaching as a second language is not that great as it deals with the way that language influences thought, which has more importance to the speaker's first language. :D
