Olá Cláudio!!
Parabéns pelo seu trabalho!!
Uso bastante o seu site nas minhas aulas.
Quando olhei essa atividade do filme 'Image That' puder ver uma repetição. Ao invés de constar 1)Uncountable 2)Both and 3)COuntable, houve uma repetição de uncountable no 3.
Espero ter ajudado!!
Obrigada mais uma vez pela sua generosidade em compartilhar o seu trabalho!!
