Hello, I'm confused with the answers of " vocabulary match up", I got totally different answers. I just want to make sure if the answers on page are correct?

Hello Hope,

The answers look correct to me. Have you tried looking for them in the Transcript? If you have any questions about a particular answer, please feel free to ask us.

I am new here. do I need to learn from the begining of a topic, I find it very complex to find the begining of the top. It is somehow diffcult for me to recognize the sound of the 5 characters.

Hello yangran,

It would probably be easier to start at the beginning, yes. Another option would be to try the Elementary Podcasts or Word on the Street, which feature conversations mostly between two people - they would probably be easier to follow. By the way, if you choose the Elementary Podcasts, I'd recommend you start with Series 3 instead of Series 1.
