i couldnt understand the 3rd exercise, please help me to learn in order to do it. thanks

Hello Ayşən,

This exercise is about the different kinds of information you can include in a vocabulary notebook when recording a new word there. In this exercise, the word is 'unbelievable'. With most any new word, it's important to record its pronunciation, what kind of word (part of speech) it is, the different meanings and uses it has, example sentences, etc. If you click on Finish, you'll see the answers and I think the exercise will then make sense, but if not, please let us know.

Hi all, I think this video learned to use the "will" and "be going to" but I need more exercises to understand well, since the "will" is used to predict or promise, but this i'll see well in English classes

Hello. I don't understand the last one question at Task 2. There is not about time but I have to use present simple. Why?

Hello IVVY,

In sentence 6, the speaker refers somewhat indirectly to her timetable when she says she's busy tomorrow. The idea is that if you're busy, your timetable is full. Since she's talking about her timetable, the present simple is the most appropriate form here.

'I'm going to be' could also possibly make sense here, given that she has plans, but most of the time the present simple is used to make this kind of statement.

Really enjoyed, amazing!!

I really enjoy all of your lessons.thanks you.

Hello! I Really enjoy learning English.......

If it is possible I want you to clarify a doubt I have, please. In Animals Scene 2 Language Focus Task 3 there is the following sentence: The war cost an unbelievable... My question is: Why "cost"? Wouldn't it be "costs"? Because "the war" is singular, isn't is? Thanks in advance!  

Hello yclv,
You are correct that a singular third-person subject would be followed by the verb 'costs' rather than 'cost'.  However, 'cost' in this example is not a present simple form, but an irregular past simple form.
You can find a list of common irregular verbs and an exercise to practise them here.
I hope that clarifies it for you.
