Episode 07: Dumped?

Sarah is angry with Carlos for working as a chef in the café. Is she going to dump him?

Do the Preparation task first. Then listen to the audio. Next go to each Task and do the activity. If you need help, you can read the Transcript at any time.

Task 1

Task 2

Task 3

Look at these two sentences with 'enough'.

I have got enough money to invest in the business.
He is good enough to work as a professional chef.

We use 'enough' before nouns but after adjectives.


Task 4


Language level

Intermediate: B1


Hello Mohammad Shahzad,

There are two points to note here, I think.

First, this sentence contains an example of a time clause (beginning with 'when'), and in English we use present forms to talk about the future in these kind of clauses.  For more information on this see this page.

Second, although 'have got' looks like a present perfect form it is in fact considered a present tense - an alternative to the verb 'have'.  It is quite confusing, and it is easy to make the mistake of thinking that it is a present perfect form, unfortunately.

I hope that helps to clarify it for you.

Best wishes,

hi all, very interesting site, its helping me a lot ,but will better if you explain for us when we should in ,on, out, up. I mean what is the roles here ?

Hi atmane,

In the sentences in the Vocabulary exercise in Task 4, sometimes the prepositions are part of a phrasal verb (e.g., to help out, to hang out) and sometimes are part of an expression (e.g., I'll see you around, What's up?).

In both cases, it's best to learn them as a chunk, i.e. as a unit, since that is how they are used.

If you were referring to something else, please let us know.

Best wishes,

Poor Carlos, :c

Hi the learn english teams
Can you explain to me the structure of this sentence :" you do want us to carry on seeing each other, don't you ?"
about grammar,  i know it's a tag question but i don't understand why using " do want"
Waiting for your feedback,
Thanks and best regard !

Hi spktdien51,
That's right, when Fadi says "Listen, you do want us to carry on seeing each other, don’t you?", don't you is a question tag. do want is an emphatic form of want, and basically just means want here.
Occasionally the auxiliary verb do is used in an affirmative sentence to place more emphasis on a verb, often to contradict what someone has just said. Here, Fadi is a bit upset that Olivia won't go out with him on Friday night, and is checking that she doesn't intend to stop seeing him.

I think the task 4 is the most difficult in this exercise!

Education is given to children by the  Government in many country ,this is an a educational website , there is arranged by efficient teachers so that is by it is easier to lean English, In G. Britain people are allowed  to discriminate against other Race. British web site remains open day night ,Better to lean English through this."


hi everyone,I just signed up,and I like British Council and hope i can meet up some people who i can talk about English Learning.
