I keep seeing the unexplained /a after the emotion. It'd be helpful to kids and anyone else if things were not just arbitrarily tossed into a lesson and left unexplained. This goes for any subject matter.

There is a typo: It's "irritado" not "iritado"

Hola, sólo alguna puntualización. Como han comentado ya, el que tiene valor o coraje es valiente o valeroso. Por otro lado no se utiliza habitualmente en castellano la estimulación como emoción ni se dice de alguien que «está estimulado». Se suele utilizar en contextos educativos cuando se habla del desarrollo infantil «un niño que recibe estimulación en su familia, es un niño estimulado» que recibe atención educativa por parte de su familia o de terapeutas.
