Task 1

Task 2

Look at this sentence from the audio.

I’m sorry – I thought it was planned.

We form the passive with the verb 'to be' in the right tense and the past participle.


Task 3




I couldn't open task 4. It didn't work.

Hello Lea,

I'm sorry for the confusion. In the end I have removed Task 4, as it was a task that no longer works for technical reasons.

Thanks very much for telling us about this error!

All the best,

task 4 was little difficult. I'm enjoying.

it was not that easy

To know who is talking it was very hard for me. Indentify the characters of the history was a challenge.

Last task (I mean the puzzle) was really difficult for me. Despite my fail I'm happy because I'm learning new things and reviewing some of my English knowledge.

It was difficult for me

could you please tell me on which situations we are using ! symbol.

Hello anitasamyani,

There is no rule about this, but we use the exclamation mark to show that a sentence is amazing or surprising in some way, or (in dialogue) to show that it was said with a particularly emotional tone. It is considered bad style to overuse exclamation marks.


Best wishes,
