  • Natkritta Sukrungruang
    Natkritta Sukrungruang Thailand I find quite lots of interesting knowledge. I see more clearer about mind mapping and how to do time schedule. And also I can identify the difference between scanning and skimming reading skills. For listening and telephone parts, it made me what should I prepare when I'm going to make a phone call or listen to someone. 2015-09-01 15:09:41
