I love Paris

It's so good! I would like to visit French too.

This interesting video shows us the need to communicate and the courage to speak a foreign language, practice is the only way to learn.
have a good day from México

Hi all good morning
It is nice stories, paris in one of country to plan my destination, i need visit there, they have good fashion and of course i want to see Eiffel  tower  . i will come to you paris, .....

Thanks you very much for bring world people this wonderfull and amazing work. You have a great country be proud of it.  Congratulations. 

I regard the waiter did not understand the Stephen's means, so Ashlie got the wrong food. But in task 2, showing the waiter knew what's the Stephen's order.

Hello Simon Kwan57,

In the text, the waiter understands Stephen's order as they get the correct food - the problem is that Ashlie did not understand what she chose in the menu, and was surprised when she found out that it was snails!  In other words, the waiter understood Stephen but Ashlie did not understand the menu.

I hope that helps to clarify it for you.

Best wishes,
