Hi. I cant understand the meaning of "SPILL" in this article!!...enjoy the thrills and spills of this extreme sport...

Hello atiyeh89,

A 'spill' can mean a fall, which is what I think it means here, i.e. when someone falls out of the raft, or perhaps when the raft turns upside down.

All the best,

can help me: Thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies

Hello Nguyen thi Hai Huyen,

A thrill seeker is a person who tries to find excitement in their life by doing risky or dangerous things. An adrenaline junkie is a person for whom the rush of adrenaline which comes when we are in danger is like an addictive drug, making them have to do more and more dangerous things to feel satisfied.

For task 1, only two fillings are available for the 6 items. I can't see other 4?

Hello Akbar Safi,

The task here is a grouping task, so you need to put each items into one of the two categories. To do so, just click on an item and then click on the group where you think it belongs. Do this for each item in turn so that you end up with two groups.


Best wishes,

OK Sir. I got your point. Thank you!

Dear supporters,
In task 1, when I click on one word it appears in the gap, but when I click on another word the word from the gap gets back in the row above, (I can put only one word in the group) I can't finish the task, please help.
