  1. I think that what you posted made a lot of sense. But, what
    about this? what if you added a little content? I am not suggesting your information is not good., but suppose you added something that makes people want more?

    I mean Social Relationships / Relaciones sociales – Natalie Platon is kinda plain. You might glance
    at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create article titles to
    get viewers to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get
    people interested about everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it could
    make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    • Thanks for your feedback! I’m currently working on making more posts about the CSET Spanish Subtests III and V along with CSET World Languages Subtest IV. I plan on making them more comprehensive than my previous posts.
