It depends on what kind of relationship they've got, I think Carolina should ask Emily if she has an open relationship with Cameron and if it's that way, she shouldn't tell him about it, but if Emily tell Carolina that she has a closed relationship, I think the right thing for Carolina to do is tell Emily about what she saw in the pub. The same apply to Jamie with Cameron, if Emily is ok with that behavior of Cameron and she would do the same in a similar situation with a guy, Jamie shouldn't talk to Cameron about it but if Emily don't would do the same thing that Cameron, Jamie should speak to Cameron and tell him that his behavior will hurt Emily at some point of the relationship.
Despite it is a common practise nowadays in lots of relationships I would tell my friend about it in case he or her wouldn't be agree whit that behavior, but that always depends on the nature of the relationship each person have.

Thanks for the episode.
Great site!!

Hi everyone,

In my opinion Carolina has a right that she should describe this Cameron's trouble situation to Emily. Jamie has a right that Carolina should not talk to Cameron about his wrong behavior.

Maybe Carolina and Jamie do not know something what it has happened between Emily and Cameron earlier.

Now it is urgently that she talks carefully with Emily about Cameron's meeting. Emily should know it. Carolina may tell Emily: "What will you do if Cameron was with other girl too much close?", and then when Emily has answered, Carolina tells her truth what she saw.

I would definitely tell Emily, it will be hard for me and her and she would be upset, but in the end, she'll know it is better to know before the relationship gets deeper with Cameron, I really don't like to be with a person who behaves like that and I don't want the one who I love to be with him.

I would definitely tell her. That's what a friend will do, right?

Hello,
The stories about Carolina's aventure are amazing, and I still haven't heard the next chapter, but I believe that the girl who is with Cameron is Emily, so don't worry, everything will be great. And in the other hands, I want you to thank for you great job, I really like and enjoy your podcast and I appreciate you for help us to learn English lenguage. Have nice day and see you next time.

We don't have such situations in my country, but if I were Carolina, I would tell Emily even though it is quite difficult to do it.

If I was jamie I'd talk to cameron, is obviously that carolina are going to talk with emily and she gonna be upset, cameron needs to know and say sorry to emily, I hate cheatters, its better end the relation that break hearts, likewise It was good that Jamie, like Cameron's friend, did not let Carolina confront him because it could be embarrassing to everyone.

Actually i do not like men who is lie on girlfriends about his relation with other girls always youth people make a lot of relations specially in school or university but in the other side young girls believe any men said emotional words like I love you or something . to build serious relation that s take many years to trust in someone. so to girls do not believe anyone.you have to be sure that man love you because your heart will break in the end
if I am in jemie and carolina situation maybe I do not told emliy and I will make her to know by herself

Hi,
I can't understand very well what first "s" means (Cameron's got a really....) in this sentence (is from Series 4 Episode 4 Task 2) :
"Cameron's got a really good voice – and he's started writing some songs now."
This "s" is from "Cameron has got" or from "Cameron is got a really good voice..."
Thank you so much for your answer

Hello Last biker

Here it is 'has': 'Cameron has got a really good voice'.

All the best
