Dear support team and teachers,
At first, I could not create my account here because it said Sri Lanka not supported but I have seen many people commenting from Sri Lanka. Why did it show me like that?

Hello NibrasBM
I'm sorry, but at this time we're unable to sign up subscribers from Sri Lanka. You're still welcome to use all of the other resources available on our site.
All the best

It's really useful with real life expressions.

Ash was over excited when she saw that good-looking guy. I was laughing at the way she talked, and finally that guy rejected her, poor girl!

Wow! It was funny,wasn't it?Ash was totally became a bit ...crazy when she saw the handsome man.But actually, do you think that would happen?Not for me,anway.In my country,I've never seen speed dating.Bye!

Hello, in task 1. The answer is Ashlie thinks that sending cards is a waste of time. But I can't find the reason in the transcript. Could you tell me the reason? Thanks.

Hello Leo Liu,

When Stephen asks Ash if she's going to send any cards she answers 'What's the point?' This tells us that she sees no point in doing this, which means that she thinks it is a waste of time (a pointless activity).

Hi everyone.
This video is very funny and a bit real. Sometimes when we meet a person we like, we change our behavior and the risk is to seem a little stupid. In my country I think that Valentine's Day is a commercial one and no a celebration of true love! Bye

Valentin's day not many people celebrate in my coutry but many people know it as a celebration.
People in my country in fact meeting each other as in Britain.

Valentine's Day is popular in my country and even if it's a bit commercial, it's a nice occasion to celebrate love with your partner.
