thanks so much peter

good evening everybody
this sentence is at present :I'm five minutes late...Correct form of the sentence:i was five minutes i right???

Hello vahidvahediasl,

Both 'I'm five minutes late' and 'I was five minutes late' are grammatically correct. One describes a present situation and the other a past situation. Which you need depends on the context and what you want to say.

My favorite film is Callas Forever. I prefer drama, comedy.


1. In task 7: Shall we put the "," comma sign after the word "time" without space?
then we should make this form "time," "please?".

2. can we say "what time does it start at?"? (add the word "at").

Hello attar_adv
Yes, in normal writing, you're right: the correct punctuation is 'What is the time, please?' In the context of the task, the comma goes with 'please' to show that this is a common way of ending a request.
Many people, particularly speakers of American English, would say 'What time does it start at?' That is fine, but the preposition 'at' is not really needed here.
All the best

Thank you very much, Mr. Krik.

Hi, just for your information, it looks that there's an extra 'got' in the Task 5.6 of the 'LearnEnglish-Starting-Out-episode-11-support-pack_1' document.

Thanks for the site!, it's great!!

I like films based on true stories, biographical movies. I don't go to the cinema anymore, I prefer to use streaming services.
