Very clear, thanks a lot.

Dear moderator,
I have met another question. What is the "routine" mean in the sentence "Good cop / Bad cop routine"? Because I remember the "routine" means things we regularly do. Can you help me? Thanks a lot.
Best regards,
Leo

Hi again Leo,

Many words in English (as well as most languages, for that matter), have different meanings or uses in different contexts. In the phrase you ask about it, 'routine' refers to a way of questioning or interrogating people that is used very often by police officers.

Dear moderator,
I have a question. What the sentence "in the pursuit of " mean? Because I can't find the meaning in the dictionary. I only knows the "pursuit" is means an activity. I think the phrase means the purpose. Can you help me? Thanks a lot.
Best regards,
Leo

Hi Leo,

In 'in pursuit of', 'pursuit' means something like 'attempt' or 'try'. So 'in the pursuit of gold' would mean 'trying to obtain gold'.

perfect task

Oh, and the same is with the Task 1

Hello!
Unfortunately I'm unable to do the Preparation task - there are some techial problems with it.
I tried to open it using different devices (PC with Windows 10 and iPad) and different browsers (Chrome, Mozilla, Edge and Safari), but the result is always the same - the big grey square appears with no task in it.

Hello Yshc,

I'm afraid we had a few technical problems with the exercises but everything should be working correctly now.

It was ok. I usually listen twice to be sure I understand the whole video.
