Thanks for the Episode!.


Task 3, the form of "help". Is it OK "to help" instead of "helping"?


If my landlord is intrusive I will tell me I need private space directly.

Hello peter M
Tasks of this episode are missing.

Hello sarfaraz,

The tasks seems to be working fine to me. You should see four green bands below the audio player, headed Task 1, Task 2, Task 3 and Task 4. If you can see these then click on one of them to see the relevant task. if you cannot see them then check your browser or system settings as it may be that you have certain content blocked for some reason.

I didn't understand the meaning of this sentence :
Olivia: I see...that’s not on, is it?
Could you explain it?

Hello daizykiran,

This is a very informal expression which means 'that's not acceptable' or 'that's not OK'. It's quite common in informal speech, but we would not use it in more formal contexts.
