Hello again Nizam,

Both questions can be correct. If you say 2, it implies that from your perspective, the morning is finished, i.e. it's probably after 12:00 at that time. 1 is more general, i.e. could be said at any time of 'today'.

All the best,

There's something I couldn't understand : why the tasks are empty ? I have nothing to do in these tasks, I just can read the title... Do I have any problem with my internet network ?
Thanks for your answer :)

Hello Thomas49,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having problems with the tasks. I've checked the page and it appears to be working correctly so I can only guess that you have a compatibility problem. Are you using a mobile device? Some mobile devices are not Flash-compatible, and so cannot show the interactive tasks on our pages. Please try using a different device - a laptop or desktop computer, for example - to see if this helps to solve the problem.


Best wishes,
