Hello mahshidbadrnia,

Due to changes at the Cambridge Dictionary, our link to it wasn't working any more, so we removed the dictionary from our pages. The good news is that you can access the dictionary directly -- just follow the link above.

All the best,

Hi, Adam, I don't quite understand the "colour" in the sentence, for example,
And write down all the colour you can remember – about the person and the place.
Could you help me?

Hi Alice,
Try looking up the word 'colour' in our online dictionary. One of the definitions will answer your question.
Best wishes,

Hi, I'm from Moscow (Russia). I has been working as a journalist for about 10 years. This was a good audio, but I can't agree with statement about not asking the leading (or provokative) questions. If I didn't ask them, my interview would be too boring. And one important note - my heroes are celebrities. And my magazines' slogan is -The Unknown Life of Famous People-
But it's rather funny - my celebrities are not such for the Englishmen for example. Except, may be, Arshavin :)
