Really? thanks! what time, sembgal?


You can choose when you want to watch it. We started out watching the free preview for Pri 1 Lesson 1. It was very entertaining and my dd wanted to watch Pri 1 Lesson 2 but we were prompted to make payment. First 3 months cost $4 something monthly subscription. Thereafter, $8 something per monthly subscription for channel 325.

What I really like is can even pause the programme when dd needs to use the toilet, and can repeat and watch the lesson again. We started watching 3 days ago, and we have finished watching Pri 1 first 4 lessons in the evening.
