hello kirk
in this sentence(Tristan: Brilliant! I’ve always wanted to go up there) I heard several times the word brilliant but Tristan says really not brilliant. which one is correct ? thank you

Hello nicky62,

I'm afraid I'm not sure what you mean here. Tristan says 'Brilliant' in an enthusiastic way here, just as the audioscript shows.

 

Best wishes,

Peter

Hello,
could you explain me why my answer "It governs the *all* chime bells" in Task 2 is incorrect?
There is more then four bells in Westminster chimes?

Hello legioner,

'all', which is a quantifier, can be used before a plural noun (e.g. 'all bells'), before 'the' and a plural noun (e.g. 'all the bells') and before a more specific quantifier and plural noun (e.g. 'all four bells'), but does not come after 'the' (e.g. it is incorrect to say 'the all bells'). As you can see, it can take a little practice to learn to use 'all' correctly!

All the best,
