Let's face the truth... Actually English language hasn't the "Future Tense". I mean the English verb in the Future Tense hasn't the specific morphological characteristics... That's why people try to express Future Tense with a various auxiliary words... And this is true for all Scandinavian languages and even Russian... Maybe the harsh conditions of the Northern nature did not allow people to think about the far future? Perhaps people lived in the present, and this was reflected in their language.

Isn't it inconvenient and confusing?
Could you tell me why?
In the Tasks 6 and 8 boxes for answers are placed above the questions.
Hello LearnEnglish Team!

Hello krig,

Thanks for telling us what you think about this. Our technical team is developing a new version of the exercises and I believe the new version will improve this, so in the future this should be clearer. 

All the best,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello LearnEnglish Team!
I agree with melissabeff. I think first series of Elementary Podcasts were more interesting. I liked Tess&Ravi's dialogues, Gordon's jokes, quizes and stories about different famous people. May be you will turn back to this format?

I agree as well. The new format is a little boring...

I preferred the series 1 and 2 because Tess an Ravi talked more and in my opinion it was better to have a 30 minutes podcast. I miss the jokes, long conversations between Ravi and Tess, the quiz, anyway, I don't think Adam and Rob much charismatic, I prefer Ravi and Tess.

All these goodbyes and farewells make me feel a little bit sad. But thank you, Carolina, Emily, Jamie, Tess, Ravi, Adam and Jo for this wonderful series. I have learnt so much from it.

I like every episode in this series, but I like the episode in which Carolina and Emily were studying in the library the most, because, like them, I used to count down to my coffee breaks as well, and I sometimes wanted to say the same thing like the male student said in the episode to other noisy students.

All the best to everyone in LearnEnglish team. Hope I can hear from Elementary Podcasts soon.
