It's Christmas morning! Ashlie's got a lot to do to cook dinner for the family, but can she get Stephen to help?


Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to the Tasks and do the activities. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.



My mother and grandmother cook in my house.
When I get a present I don't don't care for very much, I don't hurt person who gave me and I think him.

Why Stephen says the Christmas lunch but it turns out the dinner?

Hello toantq,

I know it's a bit confusing, but 'dinner' can be used to refer to the meal at midday, also referred to as 'lunch', and also to the meal in the evening (also referred to as 'tea' or 'supper').

Hello English Team! which sentence is correct 1- your name is in the flight manifest. 2- your name is on the flight manifest.

Hello Omer,

My intuition said 'on the flight manifest', but I'm not all that familiar with the field of aviation, so I've checked a corpus, which also suggests that 'on' is correct. I'd encourage you to become familiar with the Corpus of Global Web-based English - it essentially lists examples of sentences in which combinations of words have been used - as it could be very useful for these kinds of questions.

Hello! can anyone give me speaking practice through skpe?

Hello vasanthakumar,

It's great that you want to practise speaking with someone, but I'm afraid that our House Rules, which are designed to protect users, prohibit the sharing of the kind of personal information you'd need to contact another user to do this.
