Hi every one.
Can anyone please tell me when do we use fantastic and excellent.I have a doubt in one sentence of task 3,Pop Up Galleries.Is it wrong to say " I think it's a excellent use of space." instead of "I think it's a fantastic use of space."

why "it is fantastic use of space" not "excellent"

Hello:
This is an answer for Hashmi and Syeda: When you put the article "a" before a word you must focus what is the letter at the beginning of that word (a vowel or a consonant). When is a vowel you must put the article "an" and when is a consonant you must use the article "a". Then, the correct sentences in this case are:
- It's a fantastic use of space (because fantastic begin with "f")
- It's an excellent opportunity (because excellent begin with "e")
I hope I've been helpful. Bye.

hello there,  would anyone be so kind to tell me if it's possible to download the video

Hello Almira,
I'm afraid that for copyright reasons, it isn't possible.

hi 
   i need some tips about how to  improve 
speaking  please 

Hi ABODII,
This is a question which we are often asked, and my reply is always the same: the best thing you can do to improve speaking is to practise it.  Perhaps you can practise with a friend or family member who is also learning English, if you have one.  Even if you do not, remember that you can also practise by yourself.  Just talking to yourself at home can be a very effective way to develop fluency and build your confidence.  I know, because it is a method I use when I learn a foreign language!  Finally, you can use the transcripts that we have with our audio (and video) materials to practise speaking.  Try to speak after, or at the same time as, the speakers so you can get used to speaking at natural speed.  It isn't easy, but it can really help.
I hope those ideas are helpful.
Best wishes,

Hello! Could you please explain what else we can use instead of 'sort of' in this conversation "Yeah, it’s a very, sort of, you know, bright, colourful, in your face and it’s a good space to sort of go in."?

Hello Aung Thet Naing,

We could also say 'kind of' in this sentence; that and 'sort of' seem the most natural alternatives to me.

Best wishes,

Hello . could i ask two questions if you don't mind to explain them to me?  first(Big, traditional galleries take on less artists when times are tough) what does "time are tough" refer to? Does it refer to economic situation? second Question is that i can't understand the meaning of this sentence (there’s still a bit left to do.).  Thanks so much for your time and Help.
kind regards
