Hello Carmen Schweini,

The best place for you to start is with our Help page, which has some great practical tips and suggestions.

We don't have any specific FCE materials on the site - our exams focus is more IELTS - but if you're preparing for the FCE then that would be level B2, and you can do do a search for B2 materials via the search facility on the site. Just type B2 into the window and click 'Search' and you'll see a wide range of materials including grammar, listening, reading and more - like this.

Best wishes and good luck!

Hello Abdulaziz,

We're glad you found us! As a newcomer, I'd recommend that you spend a little time exploring the site – using the menu at the top (Home, Listen & Watch, etc.) is the easiest way – and that you read our Help page for advice on how to use the site.

He has solution to all the problems in the world.
He has solution for all the problems of the world.
Sir, both the sentences are correct. I have seen both the sentences in the newspaper. I am confused a bit. how are both the sentences correct ? Please explain a little bit.

Hello Rahul,

Neither of these sentences are correct. The correct versions would be:

He has a/the solution to all the problems in the world.

He has a/the solution for all the problems of the world.

Both 'in' and 'of' are possible and the meaning is very similar. It is not unusual for different words to be possible in the same sentence.

Thank you sir.

Hi~ how's going?

I wonder about the "otherwise" meaning in this sentence. "but, are you getting on with him Ok, otherwise?"

I looked it up on a dictionary. and It has lots of meaings... So It's not clear for me....

Thank you in advance for your kind reply.

Hello zmsrlf,

Here, 'otherwise' is an adverb and means 'except for what has just been referred to'. Harry has just complained about working with Johnny, and Olivia asks him if they are getting along except for the problems Harry just mentioned.
