I watched the world cup 2011 of women soccer and I was surprised that they play well like men . I  think in Germany the women's football is very popular than other country like France .

What competition do you mean?

I think that Jonathan Ive was great and will very excellent in future. Thank you

Hi Sher,
I'm so happy to hear that you like our web site.
There isn't really a starting point on this website. Just look around, find some parts that are useful for you and get started! There isn't any way to check your level either, although it's something we'd like to do in the future.
As for the support packs on S1E1 and S1E2, they are in the normal place, under 'Instructions & Downloads'.
Best wishes,
Adam

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,
Adam
