Hi:

I do not understand why on the task 4, sentence 6 it appears as wrong answer:

Write the words

Write the words to complete the sentences.

6. You can wear a
hat
Incorrect to protect your head and eyes from the sun.

I think it is correct. Please help me.

Thanks and regards,

Hello cugenbar,

You're absolutely right, both 'cap' and 'hat' are correct there. I've changed the exercise so that it recognises both as correct.

Thanks for telling us about this!

All the best,

Dear Kirk,

Please help me. I don't undertand a word "leave" in this sentence: if you are elected President, how would the world look different after you leave office ?.

Thank you.

Hello Nhung123456,

'Leave office' is used in the context of political positions and it is another way to say 'stop being president (prime minister, etc)'.

Hi! I downloaded the app "English podcast": it's very good to improve your listening's skill. During the 1st lessons, the English teacher gave an advice: write all the new words in a notebook.
I have a question: it's better note the new words with their translation or without?
thanks to all in advance

Hello Michele,

That's great -- you can learn a lot from LearnEnglish podcasts. Last autumn another user from Italy wrote to use to say that he had worked through all four series and that thanks to his improved English he had found a job in Scotland.

Keeping a vocabulary notebook takes work but really pays off (is worth the effort). In general, I think writing a translation is a good idea as long as you also write more. For example, an example sentence (directly from the podcasts or if you search for a word in the Cambridge Dictionary, most entries have example sentences) or any common phrases or collocations of the word (see the dictionary for these).

It's also a good idea to write phrases in your notebook, too. I think you'll see as you work through the podcasts that there are lots of phrases in English that are repeated frequently. If you learn these, your English will sound more natural and you will also understand native speakers better.

Good luck and let us know how you get on!

All the best,
Kirk
