Hi.

I don't understand "We have got a gig." What's mean a "gig"?

Thanks

Hi mates!

As far as I concerned I totally agree with Carolina, they should talk with their friends about the issue,
In my hones opinion it's better say the true, however I undertand the situation, and I know that it's a difficult one, when all the participants are friends it's hard to take part and put in the right side, we must think we empathy that it's always good and helpfully.

Best wishes!

Hi,
there's "He's friends with the guy who's..." Why friends? Shouldn't be "friend"? It is in exercise 3, number 6

Hi estu,

'Friends' is correct here. It means that they are both friends. If we wanted to use a singular form here we would say 'He is a friend of...' rather than 'He's friends with...'

hello every body
I 'm lucely

I think that carolina is a good friend of emily
but she doesn't think that she can hurt with this news
I think that jaime is a good friend of the cople
and he want not that carolina tell her the true

reallly is too dificult when you see the boyfriend of your bff
kissing another woman
I don't tell nothing

Hello everyone, I'm Thanh, I'm live in Vietnam. I think Carolina should tell the truth to Emily, and She will call to Camaron to clear the problem. Maybe Carolina & Jame was see wrong person in the cafe shop.

Jame should meet Camaron to ask him about the girl had sit with him. (Who is she? How relationship are they?). after that, Jame will have his decide.

If is my, I will come to Camaron's table and say: Hello and ask him to clear. Maybe is impolite but it is necessary.

I think Carolina, as a friend, should tell the truth to Emily to avoid suffering bigger in the future.
Then Emily should understand if Cameron is lying her

it's a difficult situation. Emily need to know the truth but it can hurt her and so Carolina has to take care on her friend Emily while saying her about this event.

I think that Carolina should say Emely about Cameron and her new blond friend. She is her friend and is necessary. If I was in this situation, I definitely would say to her.
