Doing all of the things you describe is certainly a great way to improve your English. Participating in the comments is a way of having a conversation and we hope to see more of you here.

Hello Krik,
Thank you for mention House Rules where I didn't know that. I will try your Facebook page for that kind of interaction.

I've observed that amid daytime and nighttime but the best time was always at early morning. I think this is the most better time for me to sink new things into my mind but no matter where I am.

Well, I don't study at the library in my university because it's the worst place for studying in the whole world, you can do anything you want except studying, it's where students chatting, laughing, taking selfies and they even eating there. Can you imagine that??
So I found studying at home is always the best for me, because I used to sing when I get bored of studying to cheer me up, do some exercise or simply have a little nap. And my favourite time is absolutely at night, everyone is sleeping, it's all quite outside, nothing distract me, just courses, a hot cup of coffee and me.

Thank you Peter

when i was in the university i used to go library for reading because it is quite place to get coelenterate.
in my collage only few student used to go library. they like to study at home. so nobody would disturb me.

hi! I don't understand the task 3 (series4 episod 14). When I check the answer I'm right, and at the end when I submit I've just 50 per cent. I don't see where is the problem. Thank you for you help

Hi bibill38,

You need to click on the green thumbs-up for each correct answer and the red thumbs-down for each incorrect answer. I suspect you are clicking only on the green ones, and so are scoring only 50%.

Best wishes,
