Language level

As I am a teacher, I always give the instruction to my children such as sit down nicely, be quiet, listen carefully, listen to me. After that I often give the information them about the exam or taking something from your home etc.....

I understand but I do not understand how this will help me?

Hello Cavadova,

The idea behinds the discussion questions is that they give an chance to practise using English, especially if you try to have an online 'conversation' with other users.

Hi, this is Badr. I am having a bit of trouble in attempting the task 2. As you can see, there are six phrases given and we are required to put the phrases in accordance with the spaces given below. At one time, I can only put two phrases in each of the spaces, and then there is the option of finish the task. My question is how can I solve other remaining phrases?

Hello Badr,

When you want to add another sentence to a group, you have to click or press on the small white hand at the side of the words already in the box. If you don't do this, then the new words will stay but the old words will disappear from the box.

It's a little difficult to explain, so please let me know if you'd like me to explain it again.

Hope this helps.

All the best,
