Hello Leste,

We recently changed the format of our exercises and there are some users who are having technical problems. Are you by chance using an older version of Internet Explorer? If so, and actually in any case, I'd recommend trying a different browser to see if that solves the problem. If not, please let us know what kind of device, operating system and browser (plus the version number) you're using and we'll do our best to help you.

Best wishes,

Hello Anatolly,

It's great that your're so keen to practise your English. However, please remember that our House Rules ask users to neither offer nor ask for personal information such as email addresses, Skype names and so on. This is because we have some users who may not yet be eighteen years old, and so we must be very careful with personal data and privacy.

Best wishes,
