Hello The LearnEnglish Team,

Would you be so kind to help me. I have a question about Task3. Is it absolutely clear instruction for native speaker to put the sentences in order of politeness? Because I desided that I supposed to finish the list with the most polite expression but start with impolite one. So I failed. May be I couldn't understand what "in order" exactly means and decreasing range is implaied? 

Thank you 


Hello Andrew,
The instructions for this task say 'Put the most polite sentence at the top and the least polite sentence at the bottom'.
Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team
