    Hello Mr Mike Little,

    Great lecture videos, How i wish i started watching and listening earlier. But will try to just watch and listen to the ones on the topics i do not really understand or have issues understanding.

    You look and sound very enthusiastic and like you are enjoying what you do. Soo much energy as well for a man your age.

    you make the course sound interesting and makes want to watch, listen and learn more and more …

    For me, I am more relaxed, understand better and relate better when the lecturer is very personable and has an interesting personality, or at least during the course of the lectures or relations.

    Many thanks, keep up the good work.

        I am happy you are pleased about the post.

        As for your last statement in your response, I apologize if the statement did not go down well with you, that was not the intention.

        I am just in awe and I like the enthusiasm and energy level your portray in your lectures.

        Which other ACCA papers do you lecture? I look forward to listening to more of your lectures in preparation for my future ACCA exams.

        Many thanks for all the hard work.

        I was joking when I pretended to be concerned about the age comment. I know that I look to be at retirement age even though I’m only 40 – I’ve had a hard life ;-)

        I’m the voice of F7, P1, P2 and P7

        Hope to see you there

      If I enter into a contract and agree personally to perform some activity for you – clean your windows or mow your grass – and then I die, clearly I am no longer able to perform the contract so the contract dies with me.

      But if I enter into a contract to buy goods from you at, say, 400 items per month and, after a few months, I die BUT NOBODY TELLS YOU THAT I HAVE DIED. So you keep delivering and my wife takes delivery but then refuses to pay because I died 3 months ago and so she claims the contract died with me. In that situation, my personality, me a living human being, is not essential to the contract – you can keep delivering and the address where I used to live before I died is accepting the 400 units per month. So my death is not crucial to the ongoing validity of the contract. But when NOTIFIED of my death, then the contract will cease. My widow may herself choose to enter into a similar contract, but that’s a new contract between you and her

      OK?

        sorry – I mean I stop being personal when you know I am dead, but I am still a person if you do not know I am dead even though i am dead?

        Any contract you enter into is (presumably) valid. When you die, if there is still an ongoing incomplete contract which requires you as a living person to perform some action, that contract ceases because you are no longer able to complete your obligations (because you’re dead)

        If you enter into a contract which does NOT require you as a living person to perform some action, then the contract that you entered into whilst you were alive continues even after you have died …..until such time as the other party is NOTIFIED of your death. So it’s not the death that brings about the end of the contract – it’s the notification of the death

        Better?
