Assunto:  Teachers' sentences...
 
Mensagem: 
1) cap cap
I have never heard this.  Where is your teacher from?

2) I am drawing a blank / I draw a blank in class from time to time
This is like a "branco de terceira idade", but there is no age limit!  You simply do not know what to say.  You cannot remember information.

3) hard lines!
Context needed.  Sometimes a "hard line" is very aggressive, uncompromising and unyielding
policy, stand, position.  Usually you find it in the singular.

4) You've improved no end.
There are no limits to the level of improvement you have achieved.  Congratulations!
