Hello randrade,

You can use two buttons at the bottom of the exercise to check it:

Check Answers will show you which questions you have got right and which you have got wrong

Finish will show you all the correct answers.

I hope these will help you.

Hi, Im Constanza from Chile and Im so happy for this opportunity. I have a question about a conversation betwen Tess and Ravi where he said: "I did ill terrible" .....its that correct? because I'd have said "I felt ill terrible" or am I wrong?
I've learnt so much with British Council and thank you very much...best regards, Constanza

Hi constanza,

Thanks for letting us know you find our site useful - that's what we're here for!

Was the sentence you refer to in Section 1? If so, I think what you heard was "I did feel terrible", which is a way of insisting that he felt terrible. It sounds like you might not be aware that each episode has a transcript. If you click on Instructions & downloads, you'll see some pdf files that you can download. The first and last one include the transcript, which you can check whenever you don't understand what is said.

Best wishes,
