Hello Sales Team,

I’ve got an idea for next week – see the attached file. I’d like to hear what you think about my suggestion.
I think Hatem and Patricia may be interested, so I’ve copied them in too. Let’s talk more at the meeting next week.

Regards, Samir

I can't find the button to start the next unit. It should be useful.

Hello Phoebos,

I am really excited about the opportunity to improve my English skills here in Learn English.

Thanks for all support.

interested exercises

Inersting and funny ;)

hi, I can't see the exercises in the different tasks, I can only see the introduction.

Hello Reza,

Are you by chance using Firefox? We've found that the exercises don't display in Firefox and are working to fix this, but in the meantime, I'd suggest you try a different browser. If that doesn't work, please let us know what operating system you use and what version of what browser you are using. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
