hi everybody
ı couldnt understand task 5 what does it mean
>>Select the THREE words that have one extra syllable when they are plural.<<
i think someone can explain clearer

Hello mhr8085,

To do this exercise, you have to pay attention to the pronunciation of the words. More specifically, you have to pay attention to the number of syllables in the words. If the number of syllables in the singular word is different from the number of syllables in the plural word, then you tick the box. There are three words like this in the list.

For example, the singular word 'ambulance' has three syllables: ambulance. The plural word 'ambulances' has four syllables: ambulances. Therefore, the word should be ticked. 

Does that make more sense? 

All the best,

Hello British council teachers
)The error won't become a mistake until to refuse to correct it)
I heard this quotation form motivational speaker (prince Ea) and I have been wondering
Does the error is part of the mistake
I would be greatful if u explain the deference between them and if the there is no difference why don't he said the error won become error and vice virtue.

Hello ABDO HASSAN,

I'm afraid I can't help you with this. This is an example of a speaker trying to be creative with the language and invent definitions for the purposes of his presentation. In most contexts, error and mistake have essentially the same meaning, with mistake perhaps sounding less serious or consequential.

To find out what this particular speaker meant by his comment you would have to ask him, or watch his presentation in which he presumably explains it.

Hi Team,

I am reading an article about eggs. I do not understand this sentence '(Egg) Not harmful for heart health? A serious claim, no doubt, but does it withstand scrutiny?'
what does 'does it withstand scrutiny?' mean?.
Thanks.

Hello Kenny Alan,

The phrase 'does it withstand scrutiny' means 'will it [the claim] be convincing/tru when we check it'.
