What to say to a boyfriend when he lazes around in the house.

Do the Preparation task first. Then watch the video. Next go to Task and do the activities. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.




I would give her a few kisses and remind her of the tasks to be doing.

I think i would have to be very in love to continue with the relationship. I think the girl in the video has explained herself very clearly and his behaviour is more of a childish brother than of a man who loves her.

:D you are right but this is just a vocabulary building, not a relationship courses

Questions in Task 2 are about reported speech.
2nd question is '' Boyfriend: I got a takeaway pizza. He said ........... a takeaway pizza.
I filled in that space like '' HE HAD GOTTEN '' because, the third form of the get verb is gotten. However, the answer says that '' HE HAD GOT ''
Could you explain the reason of this, please?

Hello Armağan 'gotten' is sometimes used in informal US English in some regions, though 'got' is also used. It's not incorrect in the right circumstances but it is certainly less formal than 'got' and more common in spoken language than written. In British English we do not use 'gotten'.

Hello Devesh Raj,

Is there a technical problem with the task? I've checked it and it appears to be working correctly but please describe what you see if the task is not working correctly.

Girlfriend is clean & careful

Keep calm and scream at him: Are you a man or just simply a slob?
