Very helpful. Words are - cars are zooming around, honking their horns, blaring, bleep and buzzing, fridge humming, rumble of the traffic on the streets, rustle of winds

I hate to write in English, because there isn't so much synonyms in this language. I speak Portuguese BR and there are an infinity of synonyms. I'm my language, I am able to commit the subject, but, in English, this is not possible 😠😠😠

@5:25 There is a clear, decipherable way (or "rule" as you called it) to determine spelling for both 'experience' & 'performance'. Both words have the short vowel sounds which tells us how to spell each respective suffix.
