Hello krik ,
there is another problem in the drag option if you want to answer the tasks online.Thank you for your cooperation .

Hello GABRELHERO,

For these tasks you need to click once on the word and then click on the place where it should be, not click and hold/drag. Please try this and let us know if the task is working for you.

I will send my story next time

It's my first course and I enjoy it much ! it is very good. I'm sure that will improve my english skills

One of my favourite acterss, from all the times, is Jennifer Aniston. She is american and she lives in California. She was born on February 11, just like me, and we both are Aquarium.
I saw her, for the first time in Friends, my favourite TV show and I loved her from the beggining.
She is famous for her beauty, her kindness and for the marriage with Brad Pitt. I felt sorry for her, when he dumped her. She didn't deserved this. I think that she was very much in love with him.
I would like to congradulet her for the way she handle there brake up and to ask her about the next film.

I used to meet many Ukrainian celebrities in our office. And almoust all of them were very unpleasant people ((( I think that world celebrities are the same. So I wouldn't like to meet anyone. But I think it's a very good action if celebrities give money to people in need. And it doesn't matter in what reasons they will do it.

If I were a celebritie with lots of money I would donate to charity of course but better than it I would use my fame to encourage people to be better person not just give some money to poor people it is just a paliative not a solution.

=P I want to meet Adrian Borland.

I think it’s a good idea for celebrities to do work for charity because they have more money than us to help them and they can make people more sensitive to this problem
