Hello Sinakbiri,

Have you tried looking up 'dude' in our online dictionary? It's at the right-hand side of the page.

I am always glad to hear that people are thankful about a hard work of ambulance. They do their best to help everyone whose life is in danger.Special thanks for this video.

Reading at the transcript I realize that question 3 is not score properly, the word rewarding is correct not tiring. Does the paramedic say tiring or rewarding? Thanks!

Hello MayelaM,

The correct answer is 'tiring' as this is what Carl says.

how can I save the exercises?

Hello sed-mon,

I'm afraid that our exercises can not be saved. Some pages, e.g. the Elementary Podcasts, have downloadable support packs (under Instructions & downloads), but many, such as this one, do not.

Hello Teachers ,

When Wendy is talking with Emily she says : It is packed with the latest technology to help save lives .
Could we replace 'save' with 'saving' ?

Thank you ,

Best regards ,

Hello iliya_b,

No, I'm afraid not. 'help' is followed by a to infinitive or a bare infinitive, but not with an -ing form.
