I prefer to speak with my friends to make plans. However, In fact, we are now working and we don't have lots of time to meet. Thus, text messages is helpful for me to make plans. With the modern of information technology nowaday, every person have a smartphone or more. Making a plan really too easily.

I prefer making a call to determine a plan rather than writing a message. sending messages means waiting for answers, why I have to wait if I can hear it immediately through the phone, just an opinion.

These days we are busier with work and study than ever before, in most cases meeting friend face-to-face for making a plan is not possible, although it might be more friendly. Indeed, I am not an exception. I prefer to leave a message to save time especially when I do not know in what situations my friends are, I mean when I am calling them. They might be at the University or in the library. LOL

Hello teacher! Please explain me. Task 1, sentence "They know where they will meet" - correct answer is "true". But do they really know? According to text (in my opinion) they don't know which place (the exact place) they will go...
Hello Olyalya They are meeting at the bus stop. Once they meet, they will decide where to go. Does that make sense? All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team
