Hello everyone, I have not been in a band. But I have played guitar for 2 months. When I broke up my ex-boyfriend, I was so sad and I started playing the guitar. Now I don't play guitar anymore but I still love it. The music makes me happy and glad so.

Is Sunday the first or the last day of the week in England?

Hello AlexS,

For most people in day-to-day life, Monday is the first day of the week.

Some religious traditions (particularly Judaism and take Sunday as the first day, since it is the first day after the traditional Jewish day of rest (Saturday). Traditional Christian calendars also take Sunday as the first day of the week. In Islam, it is more varied. Some Muslims see Saturday as the first day of the week as it follows the traditional day of rest on Friday, while others follow the Jewish tradition.

Hi everyone!
First of all, thanks for this podcast. Carolina's story become more intresring from series to series. What about me I never been in musical band, but I can sing quiet well. Sometimes, my boyfriend and I sing together. Actually he is playing on gitar and I sing a rock'n'roll songs. It's very pleased activity for me. I think "singing" is allow you to relax your mind and body.
Thanks for your attention.

I never been in a band,I like to play guitar,It was some times when have tried to learn playing guitar before,but unfortunately,because of some problem in my family ,I couldn't continue,so I was to stop.


Series 3 Episode 8

I've downloaded the support pack and printed it with my printer.
In Activity 8 I shall write the mission words.

One sentence of the solution is this:
I have a break 'from' three 'to' six 'in' the afternoon.

I haven't filled in the words 'from' and 'to' into the gaps because nobody has got a break of 3 hours.

I don't now anyone who has a break of 3 hours.


i'm sorry to say this but I think jamie,man!!! you are so bad taste in finding your
girlfriend!!!!sorry that was just my opinion

Yes, i have been in a band called Bashkir folk ensemble! i was playing on kurai. It is Bashkir folk instrument. He looks like a big long pipe consisting from 7 hole.
He was called after plant which is grow in republic of Bashkortostan. It is part of the flute group and he is wind instrument. I don't play anymore because I should have studied for my exams. And in the end i stopped to play on kurai.

I'm a pianist and I used to play an accompaniment to the chorus club when I was a college student. It was one of my high times when I played once in a concert in Hakata city, Kyushu district. After the concert, some of the audience came to the dressing room of us and praised me for my playing, and they were not laymen but piano teachers! I was so glad...
