You're welcome!
realy useful thanks for sharing with us .
So glad to hear that. Thanks for your nice comments!

 So helpful post! I think we  just can infer the meaning of these words in a specific context, since they are equal in pronunciation. It's harder to distinguish them in speaking than in writing. He goes one question: How can we do to get better the  distinction of them in speaking? Just listening to English continuously?
