Nivel de idioma

Pre-intermediate: A2


In the first task there is a question: ” if you arrive first thing in the morning,..”
Can you help me to understand that?
Another question:
Again in task one: “ there is no parking after 6:00pm?? I think there is, but it is only for the church visitors

Hi CharlesDickenes.
In the first task, i think that refers if you arrive very early in the morning.
And when it says that 'there is no parking after 6:00 pm', it means, how you said, it is only available for the church visitors and not for the staff of the company.

Hello CharlesDickenes

'first thing' is often used with time words to mean the earliest time in that period of time. So here it means 'early in the morning'.

Yes, church members can park in the car park after 6 p.m., but since the group here are workers at a company near the church, I think it's safe to assume that the question refers to them and not the church members.

All the best
