Hello NA7,

You are right! I've changed the exercise so that the answer for the third statement is now correct. Thanks very much for reporting this to us!

All the best,

hello
I am student of english and i really liked the way you offer help to learners I need help doing my oral presentation with no clear idea to talk about so i will be glad if you offer help to me about the topic i'll talk about and thank you

best wishes

Hello bella jas,

If the topic of your presentation is open, i.e. you can choose, I'd recommend you choose a topic that interests you. It's also usually a good idea to choose something specific. For example, a presentation about a certain breed of cat is probably easier to prepare than a presentation about cats in general. I'm not sure how long it's supposed to be or what other guidelines you have, but I'd also think about those when you choose a topic.

I hope this helps you.

Best wishes,

why is third answer is answer no 2.the speaker says if you are too busy try to cut1 or 2 activity in a day

Hello hasheef,

Cutting one or two activities is different from reordering your day. If you reorder then you do things in a different sequence, but still do all of them. The speaker suggests cutting activities, which means not doing them.

thank you peter M for clearing my doubt

Most of my life is completely peaceful and I smile a lot. But there’s also some situations that make me stress. In that case I try to speck with my boyfriend, try to understand this situation and make my own conclusions. His support helps me to get calm.
Yes, I found it very helpful. As for me, the easiest action is “relax”, because I know how to find harmony in my life.
I think that stress destroys me and takes me a few steps backward.

when I have stress I first try not to think about my problems and just go out to meet some new people.Talking with unknown people helps me to realize how big the world is and how nonsignificant my problems are.Then I say to myself Don`t be silly.Next I have some rest (swimming,walking,watching and listening sea,going to the bathhouse...).Finally I sleep a lot.Do nothing is the worst when you have stress ,in my opinion.

Hi teacher,
I've got a doubt with the phrase "...just sleep it when you feel enough."
What or who does "it" refer to?
Regards
Sonia

Hi Sonia,

This is also unclear to me. The Transcript reflects what the speaker says, which is actually a little confusing as she seems to change direction in mid-sentence. I think what she is saying is 'just sleep until you feel [it's] enough'.

All the best,
