This part was a little bit challenging. Thanks.

hi there, I can't hear well what steven say in the last of this programme about ashlie? could you give me a transcript? I couldn't find the transcript here. I'm sorry, I need your help. thanks :)

Hello defitra,

I'm afraid transcripts are not available for the Language Focus episodes. If there's a short bit you'd like help with, please post the time codes here (e.g. '3:14-3:19') and I'm sure someone can help you understand it.

Hello Kirk, I really appreciate your time. thanks for replying. Okay, well. what did they say at (3.30-3.35)? I couldn't hear it clearly.

Hello defitra,

Here's what Stephen and Rob say:

Stephen: 'Well, we'll see how Ashlie did later on in the programme.'
Rob: 'Good luck to her!'
Stephen: 'Thanks, Rob.'

Good luck!

Best wishes,

Is it possible to use Past time after Future? Or I didn't get what it means: "Well, we'll see how Ashlie did later on in the programme".

Could you explain it?

I see it so: "Well, we'll see how Ashlie will do it later on in the programme". Am I right?

Hello Kyvalda,

When they are speaking, Ashlie's actions are in the past. So in the future they will talk about something that happened in the past.

Best wishes,

Hello my new friends , i want to ask you about how to solve the task 4 , can you help me?

Hello Alinoor,

As the Instructions indicate, you should fill in the gaps with the words that were in Task 3. The letter before each gap is the first letter of the word, i.e. you complete the rest of the word in the gap.

You can also click on the Finish button to see the answers.

Hello everyone, in this video, I learned to use a little "will", and I also learned that I can use it both ways, the "could" and "might", only what I understood a little but I need to do exercises to understand it better, and also to say that it is very pretty woman on the video.
