Hello guneytasyurek,

Great, we're glad you enjoyed it. I'm afraid that our House Rules prohibit the sharing of the kind of personal information (such as email addresses, which is why yours was removed) that you would need to exchange to do this. I'd recommend you look through our Facebook page – you might find this kind of information there.

Good luck!

All the best,

Thank you Peter M.

dear brithish council team.
into the support pack series 2, episode 10, section seven- excercise 4 here, I have to choose the right answer for each situation: a) zero; b) nil; c) LOVE; d) oh. Before Tom talked about different ways of saying the numeral "0", like nil, zero, hought or oh, but he do not speak about LOVE.
Would do you like explain to me please, uses LOVE?

Hello anaisavecas,

We use 'love' to mean 'zero' only in certain sports. Tennis is the most common, but it is also used in other similar sports (badminton etc). Thus we would say a score like 6-2, 6-0 as 'six two, six love'.

If I had a choice to have special power, I would choose the ability to recover life. There are more and more deserts in the world, I really want to plant trees there to recover it. There would be more and more animals so we can protect the environment.

Dear Krik
I just want to ask a question ; the following sentences are grammatically correct but I have a double about the second one , would you please give me your guidance in this case !!
1. The passenger was noted about the schedule change !!
2. The schedule change was informed to passenger !!

Thank you in advance for your attention and sorry if my question is not connected to this podcast

Best regards

Hello Hootan,

Neither of those sentneces are natural English, I would say. I would suggest the following:

1. The passenger was informed of the schedule change.

2. The schedule change was passed on to the passenger.


Best wishes,

Thank you Peter , Thank you so much for your suggestion.

Hi British Council, I think you should pin the playing audio on top/bottom of the page, so that it won't be scrolled out. It would be more convenient if I don't have to scroll up to pause/play the audio.
Anyway, thank you for your helpful lessons.
