Episode 07: Dumped?

Sarah is angry with Carlos for working as a chef in the café. Is she going to dump him?

Do the Preparation task first. Then listen to the audio. Next go to each Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

Task 1

Task 2

Task 3

Look at these two sentences with 'enough'.

I have got enough money to invest in the business.
He is good enough to work as a professional chef.

We use 'enough' before nouns but after adjectives.


Task 4

Hello Kirk, my question is not in this episode but i just wondered, what is the difference of disable and unable? Thank you!!

Hi Aaronmatthew,

The dictionary gives good examples. disable is to cause something not to work or be well, whereas unable describes the condition of something or someone.

It was my first episode after joining the site last night, and I enjoyed so much.
I am glad that I found this website, there are tons of English educational contents, even for free. I have studied in Sydney for almost 6 years, but it has already been more than 5 years since I came back. I realise it is so hard to keep up my English like back in Sydney.
I got to know that the British Council offers free English program while listening the radio and I have searched. I would like to get great help and I will work hard!.

Ah, one questions
Is it okay to just listen any episode rather than to listen them in order? are they all connected story?

Hello Lucie_K,

We're really glad that you found us, and I hope our site can help you maintain your English.

You can listen to the episodes as you wish, but yes, they are in order - you will see how the characters' lives evolve if you listen to them starting from Series 1 Episode 1.

Hi, Kirk! I can't understand "Let’s just keep it casual."Please help me.

Hi marinakara,

Have you looked casual up in the dictionary? If you search for it in the Cambridge Dictionaries Online search box on the right, you'll see that it has several meanings. The one that best fits here is the third one (temporary). When Olivia says this, she's referring to her relationship with Fadi. She's not ready or interested in a serious or committed relationship, only a casual one.

Does that help?

Hi, i tend to agree that task 4 is more difficult than others. Aspecially chose the right preposition on this sentence" i wondered if you wanted to be in on it".

Hi all,
when carlos says,I...I don't really know...when I've got enough money??he uses present perfect tense that when I've got enough money?
Should he not use future perfect tense saying like when I will have got enough money.
Plz someone tell me about.I'll be thankful.

Thank you

Hello Mohammad Shahzad,

There are two points to note here, I think.

First, this sentence contains an example of a time clause (beginning with 'when'), and in English we use present forms to talk about the future in these kind of clauses.  For more information on this see this page.

Second, although 'have got' looks like a present perfect form it is in fact considered a present tense - an alternative to the verb 'have'.  It is quite confusing, and it is easy to make the mistake of thinking that it is a present perfect form, unfortunately.

I hope that helps to clarify it for you.

Best wishes,
