Do the preparation exercise first. Then watch the video and do the exercises to check your understanding and practise the language.

Great lesson!

Hi Jonathan,

Unfortunately, all the tasks on every pages not working properly. I can just play the videos and voices and see the transcripts.
Do you think this is because of my cell phone type?
Thanks for your consideration!

Hello kaveh,

The tasks are working for me and I can't see any problems. I'd suggest you try using a different web browser to see if they work there. If not, you may need to try using a different device such as a laptop or tablet.

Hope this helps.

All the best,

i wish there is a recording to record and listen to compare your performance with what we listen to.

Hello Mohamed,

It's not something we have on the site but it's a good idea for improving your English. You can use your phone, of course, or a free recording app like Audible to record yourself.


It's also useful to practise speaking with (at the same time as) the recording. This will help you get used to natural speech speed and rhythm.

As well as I have this problem with all '' Task 1,2 and 3'' parts.

Hi kaveh,

Thanks for letting us know about the problem. I've just tried the tasks and they are all working OK for me now, so I hope it was just a temporary problem.

If the tasks are still not working for you, is it only on this page? Or do the tasks on other pages also not work?

Best wishes,

Why ''Preparation box'' doesn't show anything for me?

I've never broken a part of my body so far fortunately.

Thanks for your lesson!
