    Sorry my mistake, widely does of course exist. As in the sentence, It is widely believed that Spanish is an easy language to learn

  • Stephen Robey

    1 widely does not exist, wide is both an adjective and adverb

    Nika, for the translation of 5. отводить глаза I might think - to avert the eyes.
