Hello Nonna_L,

Thanks very much for telling us about something that looks like a mistake. I'm afraid I can't find which exercise you mean – could you tell us a bit more? First of all, it's in the online exercises (not the support pack), right? Secondly, which Task is it under (Task, Task 2, Task 3, etc.)? Then, what is the title of the exercise? For example, is it 'Conversations 2.6' under Task

I'm sorry to ask you all of this, but I just haven't been able to find it. And we certainly want to fix any errors!

Thanks.

Best wishes,

Hello everyone

The reason I admire Zaha Hadid is because she successful woman from my country. She was born in Iraq and I respect her because she succeeds to achieve her dream that makes her to be the most architect famous in the world you can see all designs all over the world. She was won a Nobel prize in 2004.you should look at her designs it's fantastic and complicated at the same time.

Hello everyone. sometimes Tess said:"go to the doctor's" and sometime she said "go to the doctor". Are these all the same? thank you...

Hello intestine,

Strictly, go to the doctor means to the person, while go to the doctor's means to the doctor's surgery or office. However, in most contexts they are used interchangeably to mean 'get medical help'.

Hello. Could you tell me what does it mean when Tess said:"I'll give you a lift"? I can't find it in dictionary. Thank you.

Hello Lv0vich,

This actually is in the dictionary, though it takes a bit of work to find. In the search box on the right side of this page, look up 'lift'. Click on the first word ('lift') and scroll down the page until you get to 'noun (JOURNEY)' – that's the way the word is used here. Tess is offering to take Ravi in her car.

Well I complain if is really necesary. For example if there are a bug on my food or in the restaurante of course I complain. Although when I have a good mood I dont say nothing but when my mood is black probably I complain.

Zaha hadid is one of my favourite designers, the construction of all there stuff design are very interesting and creative. She design too de house of Naomi Cambell top model.
