I glance over your site everyday Tim! 😉 Have a nice day!

Hi Tim

Congratulations … You ideas and site are awsome!

Thank you very much…

Great! Congratulations Tim!

You´re doing a really good job! 
Thanks, Tim!

Excelente dicas a maneira com que você dá os exemplos e a tradução literal ajuda muuuito.

Hello, Tim.
I love your podcasts.

Dear Tim, a long time ago I learned a phrasal verb I think it might be a synonym to the one you’ve just taught us: “to zip through” a text. I found this meaning for it: “to read fast without focus on details. Are GLANCE THROUGH (a text) and ZIP THROUGH (a text) synonyms? I ask because the idea sounds the same: you read a text in a fast way, without focusing on details in order to find something you’re looking for or just to have a general idea of it. Like the skimming process. What do you think? Thanks in advance!

Hello, Patricia. Yes, they are basically synonmys. However, “zip through” is more idiomatic (informal).
