How I find information about task2 ?
It doesn't find in the audio !

Hello Fatima_SH,

The task is not about this recording but, as it says in the task information, about the whole of Season 1. You need to watch that season and then you will be able to answer the questions!

Hello dears,
could you please explain why Johnny says: "from early IN the morning till late AT night"? Why not "from early morning" and why when he talked about morning he used "in", but for night - "at"?

Hello Anna-N,

Both 'from early morning' and 'from early in the morning' are fine in this context, and the meaning is the same.

As far as the prepositions go, these are quite arbitrary. There is no rule determining which preposition goes with which time; you simply have to learn them:

in the morning / the afternoon / the evening

in June / July etc.

in spring / summer etc.

at night

at the weekend

on Monday / Tuesday etc.

Hi!
I have a question
johnny said "I came to Britain four years ago".
can I say"I came to Britain before four years ago"

Best wishes,

Hello abdalmonem,

No, I'm afraid we don't use 'before' like that. Before can be followed by a concrete time or event, or another sentence, so we can say:

... before 1995

... before the meeting

... before I finished work
