Hi Hanosh,

Are you looking for a video? Big City Small World is a podcast series, so there is only audio -- there is no video. If you can't see the audio player on this page (between Preparation and Transcript), please tell us what you see and we'll do our best to help you.

Please, how do I get the correction to task 1 and other tasks. If I'm able to get corrections to the questions I failed, it will assist me greatly in the learning process. Can you be of assistance?

Hello Bethel,

After you press the Finish button, it turns into a Show Answers button. If you press that, you will see the correct answers.

Hai.. its a great exercise...
I have a doubt on usage of someone, somebody,anyone,and anybody...
We use anyone for negatives and questions but
'anyone can sit here'. is it a correct sentence?
i think its not a negative sentence or a question but we use this ..
please explain, and also i have doubt in usage of "nobody'
please explain...

Hello again Shree99,

'anyone' is most commonly used in negative sentences and questions, but it's also possible to use it in affirmative sentences such as 'Anyone can sit here' when you are referring to an unlimited number of people or to the idea that it doesn't matter who it is. You can read a bit more about this on the Cambridge Dictionary page on any --  see the section of the strong form of 'any'.

All the best,
