It's very comfortable to text someone because you can do not disturb person if they are busy but if deal is urgent I'd better make phone call

I prefer sending text messages to my friends for meeting plan because I find it more comfortable than making calls. Messaging is also more convenient in a group chat, for example people can send their responses when they have some free minutes.

I prefer calling to meet my friends. Actually, I don't like texting messages. It depends on my instant situation.

Personally, I like sending messages because I don't know whether my friend is available now or not.

Hi evetyone! Please help me to understand!
Who tell me? why in the fifht question of the task 1 right aswer about drink?
IDK? please help me to understand.

Hello Russel Uz,

The first message is "Hey! Want to meet for a drink after work?" and the reply is positive ("Cool, what time do you finish?"). Thus, we know they are going for a drink and the answer to 'They are going to have a drink" is 'True'.
