my favorite place to shopping in Jeddah is red sea mall because there are many plenty of shops to visit and beautiful decoration. so I prefer red sea mall than other malls. I like shopping but I hate crowd I rather sopping in morning because the mall empty that maybe strange for people the malls in SAUDI ARABIA close in 12 midnight in the morning there are only a few of people I have not been in London before so i can not say my opinion but sure I would like to visit one time

I hate clothes shopping. there are hundreds of choices, lots of people and in my opinion, all of the clothes are the same. I used to pay for my brother to go and buy me some clothes, in addition to allowing him to wear my new clothes for a week. But now it is better with online shopping. :-)
Actually I like going to antique shops, I can spend all my day shopping there because they have a lot of amazing stuff.
OMG, I think I am a very old-fashioned man. I've just recognized that...

I don't like shopping in fact, but when I need (christhmas for example) I like shopping in the main street of the city where I live, called "big street". I would like to go to convent garden in London, I just love the description that Tess did.

Hi everyone!
I'd love to watch a football match in Britain!It would be fantastic...

Hello everyone!
My name is Sergey and my friend name is Marina. We study English together.
My opinion is that I know thing that I want to buy, I have some shops where I usually buy.

Marina opinion is that she searches things in online stocks because she likes minimalism of buying, every thing must be important and need.

Dear teachers,
Before I almost ask my question you already replied kindly...
So,I will not be tired of saying that you are the best we would expect to find all of us trying to learn the English language but not having the corresponding financial means and knowledge.
I'd like also you to convey my thanks to the British Council for its social education offer.Keep in doing it. We all need you...

Hello Nikos,

Thank you for your very kind words. We try our best to help!

Dear team ,isn't there something wrong, in exercise 7,about ''Covent Garden'' that became ''covent'',whereas the correct is that a ''convent garden'' became many years later the famous Covent Garden?
Therefore we could ask:1)when was Goven Garden a convent? or 2)when did a convent become Covent Garden?....
Thanks a lot,

Hello Nikos

Thanks very much for taking the time to point this out to us. I've corrected sentence 2 in Task 5 -- that is the one you meant, right? -- so that it makes sense now.

Thanks again!

All the best
