I've just sent my paragraph for the rubric "I'd like to meet".I would like to know if you read it:D.

Hello,
Did you email it to us? In that case, I can't guarantee that it's been read. Most of the team are on holiday at the moment, so we are getting behind with our email!
Best wishes,

hi
i think football is not a game only.
it is a business also.
the companies earn money from the men s football more than the women s football

Hello!

Could you help me to fix the exercises, they are not appear.

Thanks

Hello,

We have some problems at the moment with some versions of Internet Explorer. You should be able to see the exercises with another web browser, like Firefox or Google Chrome. You can also wait a day or two, after which we should have fixed the problems.

Best wishes,

 I do not know, downloading the transcript of  this podcast

 Hi Luisorna

There is a line of green text beneath the podcast player which says:

Instructions and downloads

If you click on that, the download links for the transcript and exercises on pdf will appear.

Let me know if you still can't find it.

Thanks
