Hi Adriancatanescu and Everybody,
It is really uncomfortable situation and that is best if everybody knows the truth before things become more complicated. Of course, it is necessary to handle the situation discreetly. Real friends must not keep the truth back.
Bye-bye!

I think Emily will know Cameron has another girlfriend. Then she would be sad and bored. Therefore, it's important that she has receipted there advices from her friend, her family.

I feel pity for Emily. Cameroon is a rude,awful and berk men. If I was Emily I would send good far.

wheeew! what a sticky situation. if i see a friend's boyfriend kissing another girl i would surely let him know that i saw him by going up to wherever he is and ask him how he is..and see if he will introduce the girl whom he is kissing.Later, i would confront him with the said issue and give him a second chance.I will tell my friend of her boyfriend's behaviour if it is repetitive

That was very uncomfortable situation for Carolina and Jamie. Especially for Carolina, because she told Emily about Cameron all the time. In my opinion Carolina should ask Emily about their relationship with Cameron. Maybe they had splited up before Carolina and Jamie saw Cameron in the pub. If they didn't broke up, Carolina should told about this other girl Emily.

First Caroline and Jamie should clarify who that girl is and understand real story because it might be any other things which they don’t know so Jamie should talk to Cameron first and figure out the statue of girl. Then, they should decide what to do.

Although the grammer wsr too basic to me, I still learn new words and improving my listening skill from the podcast. I tried another section but speed of speaking was advanced to me, so I think tjis section is apropriate for my listening level.
Thanks alot

I think Carolina shuold tell her friend Emmily what she had seen.

Hello,
The grammer of this episode was too basic, I think it should be more advanced for series 4. Thank you

Hello Sherin Hussein,

Thank you for your comment. Elementary Podcasts is designed for elementary learners, so it may be that you have made sufficient progress that it is too easy for you now! That would be good, of course, and perhaps you might find one of our other series more appropriate for your level. You might try Word on the Street, for example, or Big City Small World.

 

Best wishes,
