Excuse me, could you help me? In task 6, I see the question " how do you do", as I understand this sentence used to ask the people who I meet the first time. Is it right? So when I choose the answer " I am very well thanks" for this question but it's false. Could you give me the way to answer this? And can I use this sentence to greet my friend?
Thanks a lot.

Hi Nancy Nguyen,

'How do you do?' is a formal way of greeting someone that you have just met. There are really only two appropriate responses to this greeting: 'How do you do?' or 'Pleased to meet you' (or something similar, e.g. 'Glad to make your acquaintance'). I expect that saying 'How do you do?' to someone who has just said the same thing to you will sound strange, but that is the standard response.

It would be not be correct use this greeting with a friend or anyone else you already know.

By the way, in all of exercises, after you press the Check answers button, you can press the Show answers button to see the correct answers.

All the best,

Series 3 Episode 10 Task 8 - last question

I shall write one word into the gap to complete the small talk:

A: Can I get you another drink?
B: Yes, please.
A: ____ you prefer wine or fruit juice?

I've inserted 'Do' but the solution is 'Would'.
Why can't I insert 'Do'?
Thank you for your time.

Hello User_User,

While both 'do' and 'would' are grammatically possible here, 'would' is the better answer. That is because 'do' asks about a general preference while 'would' asks about a particular example. So I could say that I prefer wine to orange juice generally, but right now I would like some orange juice because I will be driving my car later.

My job is taking wedding films. I'm doing this as freelance. and I love this job. Because, I like work for someone and make someone happy. and I like creating film. so wedding is the best opportunity for me to make it true. There is nothing what I hate in my job yet...

I've been working for about ten years as a civil servant and I'm very glad to do something for public. But I occasionally hate my job owing to my colleagues with whom I have to work. Because some of them don't work effectively and some even do not respect their working hours. So I have to deal with the work which they don't do or do wrong.
