Hello Everyone!
Don't worry Carlos,I'm from Brazil and I don't know dancing as well,but I love football.

hello English teacher
thank you very much for explaining us and immediately respond.

Thanks for the episode, it was fun!.

Other question, in the next sentence:
Magda: Johnny’s old flat, where me and Sarah live
Wouldn´t it be: Sarah and Me?

Hello again jpkeiros,

In standard English, 'Sarah and I' would be the best form here, but in informal speaking 'Sarah and me' or 'me and Sarah' are also used. I'd recommend you say 'Sarah and I' in this kind of situation.

All the best,

Hello there, I have a question, in the next sentence:
Tony: Oi! What are you LOT doing?
It is the fist time I hear the word "LOT" preceding to present participle of verb do: "doing", so I don´t understand it.

Hello jpkeiros,

'lot' has many different meanings, one of which is 'group'. In this case, it goes with 'you': 'you lot' means 'you' when you're speaking to a group of people. Since saying 'you' could mean you refer to just one person, if you want to make it clear you're speaking to a group, you can say 'you lot'. This is unusual outside of British English. In other varieties, 'you guys' or 'you all' are used instead. 

All the best,

Who tells Tony to be optimistic?
This is questions from exercise 1, I found that the answer of this question should be "Olivia" which is not in the options.

Hello daizykiran,

Thanks for telling us about this. You could also say that Bindyu tells Tony to be optimistic when she says 'Oh yes it will, Tony – be positive! My friend from the local newspaper is coming to take a photograph, and I’m going to write an article!', which is why that is the correct answer here.

Still, I think you're right, 'Olivia' could also be a correct answer. I've added this exercise to our list of exercises needing revision so that we can improve the question in the future.

Thanks very much for telling us about this!

All the best,
