I am learning English on websites of British Council now because I'm preparing for IELTs test. I used to take piano lessons at my lunch time for about two years. Then my work place moved to suburb area, there was no place to play the piano. Now my work is busy, and lunch time is always short, I have no time to do any classes outside work at noon.

I used to do yoga at the center after work time, after a Yoga class, I felt tired but stronger, muscles were hurt but comfortable, muscles were more endurable, my back was less hurt, my legs were more agile. After I got the part time job, I quit the Yoga class and do Yoga at home instead.

I do not do anything now because I'm very busy. I attended different classes in the past like swimming, gym, yoga, and English.

Submitted by Binladen50 on Tue, 02/04/2019 - 10:10

You should revise the item 4
Hello Binladen50 In Task 2, sentence 4 is False because the poster says that the teacher will provide yoga mats; this implies that you do not need to bring one. Is that the one you meant? All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team
