Hello Jem,
Sorry to hear you can't see the tasks. Do you see any error message or just a blank space? Also, can you see the tasks when you use a different computer?

very good information

thank you Adam for your help,
but i want to know when we use this kind of verb  and can't we just say :" i could never afford it" if not what's the difference between this sentence and the transcript sentence : " i could never have afforded it"
 
 

Hello Thuraya,
The difference between 'I could never afford it' and 'I could never have afforded it' is that the first is talking about a situation in the present and the second is talking about a situation in the past.

thanks a lot, it's clear now

hi
what's the verb tense in this sentence : " i could never have afforded it" and what did fadi mean by "the all" and "we're on" in this one : " i've got the all clear from my uncle so we're on"
thank you

Hi Thuraya,
The first sentence contains a modal verb and the present perfect. In the second sentence, Fadi is talking about 'the all clear', which means his uncle agrees to go ahead. When he says 'we're on', he means they are ready to act.

I have a problem with listening to English. I can hear all the words in a sentence but just little understanding. i can't link all the words and interpret into my language but when I see the transcript I can understand. Please help me! Thanks!

Hello,
You probably just need more time and more practice. Listening in a foreign language is very difficult at first. As you become used to it, it will get easier.
