Language level

Beginner: A1
Pre-intermediate: A2


I usually read magazines when I am in the hairdresser's or when I am at waiting room of the dentist. I don't believe the horoscopes and I don't read them.

I like to read scientific magazines. I believe horoscopes are only for fun and they not must be important for us.

Some people like to relate things happening in our daily life with something spiritual and create convenient messages. I'm surprised to know that there are a number of sites introducing spiritual messages from just an ordinary thing. According to a fundamental rule of probability, I hear a horcecope provides fifty-fifty chance and all depends on a listener's interpretations in their own world.

I don't read magazines. Today, a lot of informations provide us internet, so that's the reason why I don't read the magazines. I prefer online publications. I don't believe in horoscopes. For me are false but I think that we don't have enough knowledge to blame them and there may be a little bit true. I think that we are free and our future aren't saved.

I think horoscopes do nothing but make someone feel better or cautious. It's like a placebo. The other day, as I was a bit down in the dumps, I got fortune-tellers to tell my near future. Unexpectedly, they encourage me a lot saying good things!! Wow...I?

I like IT magazines that I generaly find online in blogs.

I don't read magazines, I like to read IT or scientific publications online. I think that horoscopes are a little bit silly because they generalize the differents kind of people, so I don't like it very much. ;)

I like reding the sports magazines and news

The video doesn't play. I tried many videos in other levels, they didn't play either. I want to know why. Is it because the area that I live? What a pity it is!

Hello BING70,

There are a number of possible reasons for your problem with the videos on the site. It may be a question of local regulation, but it may be something else, such as a problem with your device (incompatible hardware) or your applications/system (software).

Please try accessing the site on a different device – ideally a laptop or desktop computer, as some mobile devices have limitations with regard to certain media formats. If this solves the problem, then you know that the problem is with the first device you used. If it does not, and videos are accessible on other sites, then the problem may be related to your local regulations.

Finally, it would also be a good idea to try to browse our Chinese-language version of the site, which is optimised for use in China.
