Thanks very much for the article, Nina. Absolutely fantastic the way in wich these words are written. Either in form and in tontent. I hope to learn to express clearer in brief.

You're welcome, Esther. Knowing where the problem lies is half the battle. It is also very important you read as much in English as possible so that you acquire an intuitive feel for the language.

It´s a really nice speech as include not only well-know aspects of her achievements as a princess but also some moving details that only her family knew.He wanted us to know her a bit better,showing her as a woman who spent all her life worried about what she could do to help everyone.

I quite like this quote of hers: "They say it is better to be poor and happy than rich and miserable, but how about a compromise like moderately rich and just moody?"
