  2. Dear maa’m Tarana
    I have tried to make atleast 3 sentences from this word, initially the first one was not as appropriate, but the other two were better. I will definitely try using the new words both orally and in my written expression.

  4. Dear Ma’am Tarana
    I found this word in the book Good Night Stories For Rebel Girls, I showed you this book. I searched the meaning in my dictionary but it was in difficult words, your meaning is much clearer.
    Thanks
